Re: Authority V Liberty
"And it is not just conceivable but likely that within 10-20 years, we will have technology capable of ferreting that information out of any head."
Heh. You're very much overrating the state of neuroscience.
Re: Warning: Actual Windows phone owner here
"because of it's security and sandboxing"
Which, of course, has been breached five ways from Sunday by the above software. This would suggest that the device was not all that secure.
9/11 involved entire floors of banking staff being hit. It's NYC office space; I don't know why you'd expect there not to be banking tenants.
Re: I hope they've carefully scanned every page...
Publishers can put whatever they wish. They can't trump fair use, much as they have frequently failed to prevent resale through attempts to gut first sale doctrine via similar legal claims.
"I am somewhat saddened by the number of up-votes this comment has received. We don't know all the details - who is to say that she was able to get away from this man, or that he didn't seek her out?
Either way, blaming a rape victim is never the right way to go - just remember, there is only one cause of rape, and that is rapists."
This man, of course, has not been found guilty of rape, making your comment quite impressively defamatory.
"The only time I encountered this problem was with Google Docs, which, perhaps unsurprisingly, don’t work well in Edge. It's also surprisingly hard to change the default search engine from Bing to Google, which together with the Google Docs failure feels almost deliberate."
DOS ain't done till Lotus won't run?
Re: keeps keys on the device....
"But Google and Apple back everything on your phone up to their servers - including all your passwords and encryption keys."
Set against that, no they don't.
90s comeback tours are going too far.
I thought I'd already seen all the Embrace, Extend, Extinguish hits a million times before.
Re: If Only Google Paid Better Attention To Android Security
To put it extremely generously,  on the malware claim.
They make a lot of metal stuff. Not employing material scientists would be insane.
You cannot use it with a flat battery, which is rather potentially exciting when one considers that the nominal user might need it to buy their ticket back home or a coffee/charge at a local shop. It just makes the smaller battery look questionable for reasons other than the obviously undesirable camera wobble.
This should be a hint to you that you're picking passwords that should be anything save the actual data.
Re: But LA to Redmond?
It doesn't work like that, there's no promotion or demotion. You have to apply to run a franchise.
Re: NHS air ambulances
The coastguards are a government body. You're thinking of the RNLI lifeboats.
Re: So the attack has started
"Qui bono is a reasonable way of deciding probabilities."
When you say it that way it sounds much better than 'intellectually lazy ad hom'.
Re: I don't understand!
"I had an IMAP server pointing at my home directory instead of just my email directory - everything over email, for free."
Everything about that sentence says end user ready!
Now he's decided to ship a Linux distro after all. Good MS times!
Re: Looks really impressive
"Look up the General Belgrano."
Presenting a very small engagement from two decades ago may not be helping your argument.
Attacking the methodology of a paper is very far away indeed from an ad hom.
What the ICO needed was a more hands off approach and an increased unwillingness to follow up on complaints. Thanks government, I'm sure no industry lobbying took place there.
No. They are likely to say that they are investment notes, as indeed the SEC have already said in several cases. A court is unlikely to argue with the SEC regarding this matter.
Blocking gay and lesbian material but not heterosexual sites is also arguably a breach of the Equalities Act.
Yes, most companies just lie about their practices or aren't aware of just how casual marketing are with the databases.
The manufacturer of the charger, assuming the power output is out of spec. I'm glad I could clear that up for you.
If Google Maps is not best in class, what is? OSM is the only thing I can think of that comes close.
Re: Undecided as yet
If you actually care then install a custom rom without gapps.
So to be clear, the complainants broke their own legal commitments and were presented without any criticism of that or their views? Good to know where you stand.
Actively managing their patent portfolio.
How the mighty are fallen.

"Now, you've had a lot of offers of souls. Just wait a moment and listen to this option..."
"Murdoch admits snooping on OWN FAMILY in spy shock" ...*blinks*...Sorry, I thought I was a Sun sub for a second.
Re: Hey Microsoft - here's an idea
There is no commercial use (or, indeed, any form of use) restriction in GPL at all.
Re: KitKat, grey areas and clear English
On existing devices? Well, I'm glad that won't result in an extremely predictable class action lawsuit.
Re: Thanks El Reg
Sony, oddly enough, are now becoming one of the most FOSS friendly phone manufacturers.
Re: And the first step towards Skynet has been taken...
Why involve a pilot at all?

> Situational awareness can never be inputted in code.
...you're already implementing the logic routines in neurons, there's no inherent barrier to doing it in silicon.
Never is a long time.
They've got something rotten in their very core.
Re: Do I hear the sound...
No, by this point there's merely a suspiciously large pile of hot metal filings on the workshop floor.
Re: Seems pretty hard to make back the price of a $100 phone
How stupid of them to value a stock that increases in value instead. Idiots!
Re: Is it water proof?
I'd like to think they are smart enough to have a membrane (waterproof) speaker. They aren't expensive these days.
It was very, very good for video processing. I'm actually surprised that people aren't doing bitcoins on them, but I guess Moore's law comes to us all.
Re: Great display tech, not so sure about the watch.
It's pretty clear that this is a proof of concept product; Qualcomm don't do channel conflict so they'll be trying to licence it out.
Re: All your phone are belong to us
Or just a sandboxed VM.
Re: All your phone are belong to us
I downloaded the apk out of curiosity. Requested permissions include network and GPS location, identifying other running apps, changing connectivity, connecting and disconnecting WiFi, changing WiFi settings, full network access and sticky broadcasts.
Good thing there's no attack surface for 0-days.
Re: No perp???
"a nice bit of double jeopardy"
That is not what double jeopardy is.
Yes, of course. Stating the reason for blocking is not a moral commentary on the reson for the block.
Serious technical chops. Serious weight with the OEMs and publishers, too.
Re: Seems Irrelevant
I believe Google Fiber is a gigabit. Other ISPs will also be that fast before 4K gets big.
