Functional approximations of ones, at least.
in a looking-like-doing-something kind of way.
Don't worry. As their viewers slowly switch off they will scream to the Government to protect them from all the pirates destroying their business.
You owe me one new keyboard (a Bat Chordable one).
While there are certainly individuals of maturity (and even intelligence and integrity) in the population, taken as a species.... There is a reason if there is intelligent life out there it isn't contacting us, even if it knows we are here.
It's because mushrooms sometimes resemble penises.
Don't worry, I'm sure there is a sealed-section in the TPP to put the kibosh on this sort of thing soon.
It's so cute when people act like the 20th century concept of 'nation' has any relevance to 21st century multinational corporations.
For anyone for whom open gun carriage is important, there is a perfectly good country to move to.
"I'm sure Lenovo's S&M dept are crying into their <whatever_they_drink_there>"
Possibly they have become confused as to what the "S&M" in their dept. name stands for.
...they /want/ to go out of business!
The Lenovo brand is, with me at least, now synonymous with dodgyness and anyone willing using it will be treated with great suspicion (of at least their IT credentials).
Nah, just a population re-adjustment in the making.
I pulled it from my home machine two weeks ago. The most surprising thing was that a whole bunch of entertainment sites I visit in the evening still work fine. (I have to pop over to youtube when Cyanide&Happiness do a video, but then... I had to before with flash installed anyway because the off-the-site performance was flakey for some reason.)
It is now gone from my work machine for over a week and I haven't noticed either.
"dimwitted attempts at marketed that tells you the latest widget is very shiny but completely misses actually telling you what it is"
That bit, at least, should be familiar to anyone who has used the commercial parts of the 'web in the past 10 years!
Well, I won't argue that, Mark!
Though a BOFH-level locked-meeting-room-halon-system solution may also be effective in this case.
Oops, now I'm on a watch list... again!
1. Fully opening the process. (Nothing to hide, nothing to fear - or was that the other way around? I was never very good at mindless rhetoric).
2. Excluding the US from the agreement (Since they are the ones so out-of-whack with the rest of the world - requiring them to switch to metric to join in should keep them away for a good long while!).
If you are lucky you might have a non-nut-job independent you can vote for rather than voting informal. At least you help someone get their deposit back.
Pretty much. Voting in this country is like deciding if you prefer to step in dog crap or cat crap. Certainly there are dog people and cat people who have their preferences, but in the end you are still stepping in crap.
There is a reason they were voted 'worse than the other lot' at the last who-will-damage-the-country-least time.
Since the reason I buy off-shore is the locals aren't interested in even stocking what I want, at any price. They would rather just stock whatever useless junk head-office off-loads on them and cry that no-one is buying it.
Nice to see a governnment department using technology in a proactive manner. Using in-house engineering too, rather than out-sourcing to a dollar-drain.
They better watch it though. This is exactly the sort of forward-thinking technological innovation the feds are trying to stamp out here.
I was thinking that myself. Today there would be a bunch of web-pages with images and instructions on how to do it.
And several thousand tedious you-tube videos where there is a 68:1 ratio of pointless-yacking to what-you-actually-want-to-know.
And then reduced to a boring 17 words by an even more boring person with nothing better to do (with their entire pointless existence from birth to grave).
I was just prepping to watch Dark City tonight, too.
It's also why the "no one can hack my brain" excuse mentioned in that Google study is rather naïve. Social engineering like this is exactly hacking the user's brain.

My money is on a group of divorce lawyers doing the hack.
Don't forget the large close moon producing nice tidal zones for the aquatic-terrestrial transition.
Having any pic of me show up on Bing would be shameful, irrespective of my state of undress.
Biggest surprise is I haven't yet found any of my regular entertainment sites give a rather. Apparently they are all ready HTML5 savy.
It's so cute how the US thinks the rest of the world can't possibly get on with out it's input.
So that was what the $$$ branding change the other week was about?
Pretty good. Is there one with serifs at the top and bottom?
Those valuations are, of course, in Internet Dollars (TM).
(We need an I with a centre-stroke in unicode!)
Maybe the women don't want more maternity leave. And maybe their contribution to the organisation is important enough to give them these options.
I grew up with Australia as an independent country. Now it is becoming effectively an annex to the US.
Might be time to move. Pluto is looking interesting lately!
I grew up with Pluto as a planet. Now it is a TNO. That's fine with me. They can call it anything that works (except for calling it 'late for dinner', as my Nana used to say, though not about Pluto in particular). I'm more disturbed by the reaction to what is essentially a semantic change, than the change itself. People! The actual object isn't effected by what we call it in one particular language at one particular point in time! And it will still be there long after the last traces of humanity are subducted back into the Earth's mantle.
Well, the people doing this study don't really care about these pieces of software. The study is about helping make sure their own house is in the best possible order. They leave the rabid finger-pointing and scoring of cheap PR points to the commercial sector. They have better things to do.
The study (and ElReg's reporting of it) isn't saying these areas have bugs. Just that they are critical enough that they should get a long hard look-at now and again.
(Well, yes the story title is as click-baity as you would expect from anywhere, tough I imagine that is a bit of tounge-in-cheek from ElReg's side and regular readers, at least, should know that's their style).
Maybe if enough routers were configured to actively block flash content...

Makes me think of the end of "Falling Down" when the pro-antagonist realises 'I'm the bad guy?"
That was the tablet's self-presevation mode.
Yo black hole so big...
Because numbers lead to math. And math leads to the terrorist side.
I imagine there are a whole bunch of reigeims around the world eagerly waiting for the US to set precedents here.
I was expecting an article about people who suffer from that (actual) genetic blood condition* that likely lead to the mythos of vampyrism. Not a bunch of circus geeks.
*Symptoms include: UV sensitivity, retracted gums, bad temper, and - in pre-medical-science days - a need to drink blood to get the chemicals the body can't make itself (though raw blood of any mammal would do).
I want this read out in parliaments across the world.
I would see this sort of crypto back door as less of a 'secret passage' and more 'a well-known back gate to which just about every petty beaurecrat in the city has a key"
