FTC: OK Facebook, swallow WhatsApp – but NO selling people's data without permission

Of course the FTC has no power to stop Facebook requiring users to accept an updated terms of service (that allow them to resell data) in order to continue to use the app.

New WebCL toolkit hooks browser apps into GPUs – and that's not good news for Apple

mafoo
FAIL

Silly headline

Remember how everyone said HTML5 was going to destroy the appstore?

Website require the app is downloaded every time you want to run it, mobile apps are stored on the device. That is the major advantage.

Thats why about 30% of the popular non-game apps on the appstore are just JS/HTML in a app wrapper a-la phonegap.

This will just mean that phonegap apps can have pretty graphics - not that browser apps will suddenly decimate mobile apps - although some nefarious websites might try and harness your GPU for a giant bitcoin mining grid :P

Beta tasting: The Elder Scrolls Online preview

Terrible combat

My experience from playing the first 12 levels of the game was the the combat (meele at least) was atrocious.

I found it to be a rehash of tired MMO idoms with dull questing and sub standard fighting. A massive dissapointment after being exposed to the refreshing take GuildWars 2 brought to the format.

I've heard that the endgame is meant to be a lot better - but I CBA to grind to the end and I'd rather save my monthly fee for steam sales.

MtGox takes heat as reasons for Bitcoin FAIL surface

mafoo

Not MtGox's fault

This isn't MtGox's fault as the article implies, its a flaw in the bitcoin transaction protocol that allows transactions to be duped and hijacked - and thus effects all exhanges.

I'm guessing that someone tried to/successfully pulled off a rather large heist and MtGox had to foot the bill for it.

Their radio silence when they shut down trading causing bitcoin's value to bomb (allong with the russian announcement), was unfortunate but is entirely understandable given the nature of the exploit.

Cant help but think the author of this article should have put in a bit more research. Here's what the bitcoin development team had to say in relation to MtGox: http://www.businessinsider.com/bitcoin-developer-responds-to-mtgox-2014-2

Bitcoin value breaks $1,000 barrier in FRENZIED HYPEGASM

Value

It strikes me that theres something amusing about bitcoins:

If they keep on going up in value, then who the hell is stupid enough to spend them.

But is no one actually buys stuff with them... then its just a commodity - not an actual currency.

Re: New Option

What, like my corsair c70 with an asus sabertooth MB and hydro h110i cooler and radeon HD graphics card?

Its pretty easy, and it works pretty much flawlessly - more flawless than windows sitting on the other disk. ;)

...and that apple sticker i got with my iPod stuck on the bottom of the case makes it "apple branded" hardware... doesn't it? :D

The only thing is you need access to a mac to buy and download the OS to a usb stick to install it.

Its disappointing to see them go with Mobile graphics again, and desktops shipping with half a gig of VRAM is pretty wtf in this day and age.

Spec wise its almost an upright laptop with a larger screen.

Guatemalan judge orders McAfee released from detention

"After his release, 67-year-old McAfee told reporters, "I'm free. I'm going to America." He said he plans to catch a flight to Miami.

Guatemalan immigration officials have already escorted McAfee to the Guatemala City airport."

Autonomy founder attacks HP fraud charges with new website

mafoo
FAIL

fail both ways

Either way, HP have failed big time. If they did inflate value their company by 9 times its value, then HP's due diligence was woefully inadequate. If HP has managed to destroy the business in the relatively short time they've owned it - that too is a masive fail.

We all thought the purchase was pretty over valued - seen as a desperate move on HPs part to reposition itself in the corporate services sector, along with the announced closure of its hardware business.

So i recon that its a bit of both, and HP is just going from one misjudged cockup to another.

You think facebook's stock plummet is bad, lets take a quite look at groupon, trading at $2.73 last i checked - they were initially priced at $20 and started trading at $28. Quite the fall. It still beggars belief how people thought it would ever be worth that much.

Re: So-

It makes you shell out another $120 if you want to buy the keyboard cover ($100 if you get it with the device at time of order)

So i guess it provides enlightenment... of the wallet.
