### MEN WANTED to satisfy town full of yearning BRAZILIAN HOTNESS

I've just checked my calendar. It is not April, or late March... Better start brushing up on my Portuguese.

### Cracking copyright law: How a simian selfie stunt could make a monkey out of Wikipedia

#### Totally Off Topic...

Some acronyms just should NOT be used... Such as I ANAL. Though it could be a good title for a psycho-sexual thriller... I ANAL, by Ian' A. Ger Bil.

Some acronyms just should not be used.... I ANAL is one. (However, it might make a good title for a psycho-sexual thriller.)

### Kate Bush: Don't make me HAVE CONTACT with your iPHONE

#### Cure the problem!

Confiscate all i-devices at the door, then arrest the pirates for pre-piracy crimes.

### The internet just BROKE under its own weight – we explain how

#### BGP? IPv6???

If we had all agreed to use ATM we'd not be having this discussion...

(where's a good duck when you need one?)

### Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner: Capital is top target for computer thieves, say police

#### Das Kapitol?

"Capital" refers to money... "Capitol" refers to a nation-state's seat of government. I can understand how it is easy to confuse the two, but don't conflate them.

Why "dual-dc"???

### Snowden to warn Brits on Xmas telly: Your children will NEVER have privacy

#### Re: video address is already available to watch online for those

You have a serious lack of imagination.

#### Re: Protection and Respect

Stating that "Right is right, wrong is wrong." is merely stating the obvious. What is NOT obvious, however, is whether or not you can be trusted to know the difference.

Is it just me or does that recording look a bit like something done in 3ds Max? Look at the obvious neckline, where white neck meets tanned body... I mean, let's make it glaringly obvious. OK, tin foil hats back on, all.

### United Nations signs off on 'right to privacy in the digital age'

#### Re: That's a relief then

"Well they used one magic wish to ban smacking of children in Australia....."

Wrong country. You are not from around here, are you.

### Online shopping tax slug not worth the effort: National Australia Bank

Could be worse, y'know... Last year I bought the parts for my new PC over in OZ, and paid for my return airfare with the savings over purchasing in NZ. I paid GST (in both countries), spent two nights in OZ (NOT the Hilton, but hey!), took a few Aussie friends to dinner and STILL had money left over. The Kiwi's REALLY know how to overcharge!

### Julie Larson-Green: Yes, MICROSOFT is going to KILL WINDOWS

#### Re: Why Windows is doomed.

Remove the hibernation file. Remove the index file. Remove the System Protection files. Remove the installation files. That's a start...

#### Re: Why Windows is doomed.

Remove the hibernation file and the index... That'll buy you back a LOT of drive. Especially the hiberfile.... It takes as much space as you have installed ram (Duh...)

### 'Fatal flaws' in Google's revised search antitrust overhaul, says Foundem

#### Re: The best outcome for the general public

How do you get google shopping? I get many sites, including images and wikipedia... No google shopping. I feel cheated...

### LG: You can stop hiding from your scary SPY TELLY quite soon now

Don't take it personally, but if you are naive enough to believe that anything that you connect to any public facing communications channel is 'private' then here's a clue... You are wrong. Corporations have no morals. Governments have no morals. Makes me wonder sometimes why I bother to even try to be nice. Or legal, for that matter... Corporations and governments can get away with (literally) murder, why not we plebes? Let anarchy reign on everyone's parade!

NSA, Microsoft, Apple et al... You started it. Make sure that you can finish it, mates....

### Look at how many ways we ruin your life, Redmond boasts

Yes... Smartphones are SOOOOO empowering... to, as previously stated, your boss - NOT you. But at least your company buys your smartphone, right? Pays the telecoms bill, right? Buys the laptop / fondleslab that you need to get from work to home, right? Pays for your ISP so that you can do all that work from home when you are really supposed to be taking your daughter out to the movies... Right? Right? Oh... Wait... Don't tell me that they got you with that BYOD crap as well.... Poor sod...

### MPAA, RIAA: Kids need to learn 3 Rs – reading, writing and NO RIPPING

#### Re: Mind control

"This is what used to happend in the dark days of SOviet Union.

Brainwashing and propoganda.

Since when did the USA go that way? What about the free will of the people and Democracy ?"

Ever heard the phrase 'American Exceptionalism'? Do you believe it? They gotcha. I suppose that you also think that you live in 'The Land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave.' They gotcha. Again.

### Google patent: THROAT TATTOO with lie-detecting mobe microphone built-in

#### Re: @Steve Davies 3 - Removal?

Gives a whole new image to the question - "Honey, do I \ does this _____(fill in the blanks...)?"

### KRAKOOM! iPad Air EXPLODES in FIREBALL, terrified fanbois FLEE Apple store

"You do realize that Apple has sold a few hundred million iPads right? They experience very few fires, especially considering the quantities that are out there. You stand a better chance of being strafed by machine gun fire from a Zeppelin on a bombing run than you do of experiencing an iFire."

Actually, as things now stand I have an infinitely greater chance of experiencing an iPad burning. Several Vodafone Australia customers will back me up on my version, how many people can you dig up that have even seen a Zeppelin? On a strafing run? While dropping bombs?

### HP CEO Whitman: We've built the PC that GOD wants

#### Re: Futility

""Whitman, a former Republican candidate for the governorship of California"...

Well the woman is certainly well versed in futile pursuits. The taliban have as much chance of getting a seat at Westminster as any Republican has of becoming governor of California."

Do you mean 'anymore', or what? It is kind of hard to dismiss the fact that the majority of the time since 1900 California has had Republican governors. Or are you just a Dem fanboi? I hate fanbois.

### Wait for it, waaiiit for it: We update an Atom tablet to Windows 8.1 Pro

Does win 8.1 sideload the NSA buttdoor?

### Apple's Steve Jobs was a SEX-crazed World War II fighter pilot, says ex

#### Re: Past lives

Wot...????? You got a day OFF????? Who'd you have to ....

### Microsoft: Everyone stop running so the fat kid Win RT can catch up

Did Ballmer at one time fall in love with a Shopsmith? Nice idea, but look at the market share...

### Valve uncloaks prototype Steam Machine console specs

"As for graphics, the prototype units will include either Nvidia Titan, GTX780, GTX760, or GTX660 components – and again, we don't know how many of each.

Each configuration will also include ... 3GB of GDDR5 RAM for the GPU..."

Something here does not compute. Methinks that someone sort of mis-read what Valve quoted as specs...

### You put up with CRAPPY iOS 7. You can put up with Obamacare too, says prez

#### Re: Facinating

A 'free' society is an oxymoron. You, on the other hand don't need the 'oxy' part.

### Snowden's email provider gave crypto keys to FBI – on paper printouts

My company needs a new router. Hello, Huawei?
