You mean like the NSA/GCHQ?
Two other words to complete your mission:
OK, so by that logic, I can write a virus and sell it on the market, as long as I warn you to not actually use it in the open.
Bosch should never have written cheatware in the first place... Give me any good reason why you need such software in testing?
Since Porsche is also part of the scam, how can its boss now be mister clean and fix things?
Nah, they all just bought the dodgy firmware from Bosch.
I kinda wonder why nobody points a finger at them for writing/offering that code in the first place.
Here's to hoping it gets backported
I'm so happy I'm done with using INTEGRITY, ran against more bugs than we wanted to handle, and the standard response was that there was a newer version just out, please try that. No we don't know if your problem is fixed, but go through the whole hassle of upgrading anyway, risk adding new bugs, only to see the damn bug is still there.
And in the end, a lot of their code is just ripped out of FreeBSD, at least they left enough of the headers so you could search there for fixes.
Oh, and charging 1000 EURO for a 10cm flatcable with a propriety connector for the debug probe? No thanks.
Yes, my N7 (2013) does it too...
so that you can pick it up either way, and then curse when you're looking for the volume buttons or that the camera is behind your palm....
I know somebody who's going to keep an eye on those stock prices, they're dropping way below the actual company value...
Funny that, I actually stopped using skype due to it being p2p, when my home computer was selected as supernode and ate through my bandwidth and volume in no time.
"QNAP support used to be excellent, and cover the Western Europe timezone. Now they're far east hours only and demand that you to leave an admin workstation logged in overnight, unlocked and with a desktop sharing app running."
Weird, they've been doing the exact opposite by building local support teams for certain countries, but the focus was on language, not time zone. There are people in France, Germany, The Netherlands,...
"Don't be fooled into thinking RAID is indestructible - I've seen three instances across five rackmount QNAP servers where the entire volume becomes corrupt and unmountable. In each case QNAP walked away saying the disks weren't on their approved list, so on the basis of that list backed up by a press release all the disks were replaced with WD Reds. Fortunately I'd kept a copy of the press release because six months later one of them trashed irrecoverably again and we discovered that Reds had been quietly dropped from the list for rackmount systems owing to vibration problems."
Yeah, serious fault of QNAP, they should never have certified HOME NAS class disks for RACK. If you're running big rackmount setups 24/7, don't be a cheapskate and order enterprise-class drives.
sure, for users who know how to do this stuff, there are far cheaper options.
But many (most) normal users aren't, and I see enough people even have questions when configuring such an easy device.
Another pro is that QNAP support doesn't really care how old your NAS is, if you get into trouble, somebody will even connect and fix things for you, even if it means manually reassembling the RAID array on a 5 year old machine after RAID rebuild failure.
So for many users the extra money buys them peace of mind.
That said, nobody prevents you from getting the 2GB model and stuff 8GB in it, the memory slot is at the bottom and easily accessible.
disclaimer: I don't work for QNAP, but I run a QNAP community forum for Dutch speaking users at http://www.qnapclub.be

Yeah, and I guess I'll not be the only one who misread his name as fromaggio too :)
maemo (Nokia) + moblin ("Intel's Linux") = Meego
Sailfish is based on Mer, which is a community project based on Meego, but Mer actually started already before Meego
And then there is Tizen, which is also based on Meego
"Jolla was created as Sailfish and escaped from the burning platforms of Nokia to develop the MeeGo (formerly Maemo) Linux OS for phones"
Jolla is the company, Sailfish is the OS.
"Nokia began work on what today is Sailfish in 2002" is as true as saying Linus started work on it.
Sailfish is based on Meego but differs quite a bit. And Meego differs a lot from Maemo.
Too many technical facts incorrect, made my head ache.... Suggest to read up on this part of tech history....

You could also move to Debian + MATE, that combination runs pretty well here (using debian testing). At least I'm now back on a rolling schedule, since LMDE proved to be a big disappointment....
I hope it gets you over your misinformation regarding http2
If his position does not require him to be able to read/write e-mail, then why not. He probably has other qualifications that many of the e-mail savvy laughing kids lack
Contractors (*) are not part of your organisation. They come, do the job and are gone. If you have a good one, all is well. If you hit a bad one, bad luck for you.
Lesson to learn: need critical stuff done? Don't assign it to a contractor. Just don't.
(*) and that's me speaking as contractor...
nah, we're used to hear this stuff from Microsoft, that's why their security issues don't even get on news sites any more, it would get boring...
I think you're underestimating the value of 'take 30% of whatever is sold through the app store'
From what I understood it has more to do with the very bad economic situation there. But it's probably anyone's guess, but your suggestion is most probably not it.
When people start complaining that the growth of profit is lowering. As if that growth could ever be infinite
No. Next, combine this with auto-driving vehicles and car thieves don't need to leave the sofa, they can even deliver the 'goods' automatically
As far as I know, truecrypt isn't readily available for Synology (you can build and run it though) so I certainly don't buy the hidden compartiment on the NAS story. Maybe he just stored truecrypt container *files* on his NAS?
If they already manage to obfuscate those facts, I wonder what they did to the rest of them to create a bit of FUD
I switched from Win 2K to linux back then, and haven't looked back. So I find these articles quite amusing. And the nice thing is you can actually use your hardware until it breaks or lacks the power for the things you want to do, not the bloody OS GUI
that's all ;)
There's simply too many of them :((((
"I am surprised that the martians have not scribbled "wash me" in martian on the panels."
That would only make us believe there is water even more, and cause more visits to their planet. They're pretty clever, these martians
Sony makes bloody good phones - the Z3C it the best I have owned and seen so far
Seen cases like that on DX for several years now....
No doubt people in black suits will assist with the repairs to make sure everything is secure
No, I think they hired the team that created the google wifi-slurping cars
Fact indeed... how many times have you not planned or started a lane change only to see another driver changing at the same time?
Which does make me wonder if the robo cars use their signalling correctly and if they spot the signalling of other cars correctly. I'd hope so.
yes, one where an app can't disable OS updates
for once I totally agree
@Lost all faith...
There's even a clip of somebody filming his own stupidity:
Luke where you are going
Next week, he will claim they broke in again and hid the shoe behind the couch! Them bastards!!!11!
As a bonus, good luck writing it down on a post-it :D
nope: 568,788 Yuan or 118.6 million won
yup, looks like $3bn spent well... keep 'm coming
"Bombs land on target."
Not all of them... some explode above land, some hit target below water
Why do so many people use open source and so little people support it? Probably answers your question.
We're not talking about a big company with millions on the bank, in fact, the 'big ones' have only recently started funding some essential open source core libraries...
you forgot a roll of tinfoil
It is also wrong. The coins can NOT be used to buy anything, even in Belgium. They are a collectors item, no more, no less.
If you dig a bit deeper there's a whole scene of coin collectors for these kind of things. The idea being that they are pretty rare and some day might be worth more. Or they like collecting them more than they like stamps? Who knows ;)
