"Nevertheless, we believe that the decline of available communications data will begin shortly to have a serious impact on the intelligence and security Agencies."
Yet the nosey bastard’s charter is used by local councils more than MI5! Total abuse of power.
Of course it's not the government that annoys me most, it's the British citizens whom have NO CLUE (about anything) about what is going on and really don't give a shit.
Honestly, I'm surrounded by IDIOTS! Idiots whose lack of caring (for their kids, never mind each other) means MY rights are eroded.
Re: Canned my account ...
"The only reason, was friends, acquaintances and family. I don't follow *anyone* else. I don't have any urge to gain more followers and I post seldom."
So you don't follow any one else other than friends, acquaintances and family. WTF? Yeah said it earlier, sharp, this guys very sharp.
Re: Lies, damned lies and statistics
"Without an idea of how many hours each group is using FB, these numbers are pointless and the article simply becomes spin."
Pointless spin. The Reg hacks speciality.
"Ah, a troll being up-voted by other trolls - how funny you all are!
How witty and original!"
W O W, your wit knows no bounds. Sharp as a tack to make such an observation.
"the thing will drive you nuts with a constant stream of drivel if you don't."
It's not Farcebook with the constant stream of drivel, it's your so-called "friends".
You need more interesting and active friends.
"to those 20 per cent who say they've quit Facebook, allow this Reg reporter to extend his gnarled index finger and say: "You'll be back! Mark my words ... you'll be back!" "
to those 20 per cent who say they've quit Facebook, allow this Reg reporter to extend his gnarled index finger and say: "You twat! Now I look even more stupid than I did."
Re: "ChildLine is sending workers to every primary school in Britain...
"I think we are more likely to have another generation that just expects handouts from that government."
Well, people will treat their kids like little prince/princesses and not teach them responsibiliy/accountability/vaue.
All the protections kids need to keep them away from adult content already exist.
It’s the PARENTS that need educating, not just the child.
As for the NSPCC saying "It also called for internet service providers to "stick to their commitment" to give parents clear and easy blocks and filters for the net at home"
Maybe if parents "stuck to their commitment" to raise their child, and not use every excuse in the book to pass that responsibility to others, the issue would not be so prevalent.
"Ok so it took me ages to realise that the odd tweet-counter-looking thing was a link to the comments. Enough with the secret sauce, guys!"
Took me the time it takes to hover the mouse pointer over the graphic.
Re: I just don't get it...
"Of course it's a massively silly gimmick and I'd be tempted to take a phone call or use my 3G in that area just to piss them off...." and fuck the people sitting next to me.
"in accordance with our lord Jesus Christ."
Are you taking drugs?
Immediately your views are invalid.
"The EU can't defend itself from itself... Every EU army/air force/navy you have cannot operate without American help, and you know it."
You sound like you believe the (usually bollox) fiction pumped out by hollywood.
Re: I suppose we should be happy big corp wants our data
"Because if nothing else, it means we have some wealth.
There are people who they're not interested in at all, and I'm glad I'm not one of them."
What worth do you have? Not intellectual by the sounds of it.
Are we STILL banging on about fking shitty iPhone?
WTF? its 2013! iFad died years ago.
What, you wanna look like a luddite?
The majority don't care about anything but their pathetic little selves. Lets just burn as much coal and gas as possible and fuck up the planets climate. I don't care less about the kids future, I won't be here.
Humans are just so SMALL!
Re: Sliding down the slope to obsolescence
"Come on Apple, give us something that gets us excited again"
You did it once in the 80's and again in 2007. Don't let it take decades to wow your fans.
"CEOP noted that a sharp increase in smartphone usage among 12- to 15-year-olds - up 21 per cent in just a year - meant that young people were able to communicate and share images more easily than ever with strangers online."
I tell the kids, adults can not be trusted and not to follow any instructions from adults except parents/teachers/police. If they are unsure to call me. I limit what they can do and use software to control thier access.
Dirty bast*rds should be chemically castrated.
"I am forced to endure stupid remarks from stupid people, often in stupidly senior management positions for which stupidity is evidently mandatory in order to achieve their stupid promotion. Stupid."
Whenever I say that I'm told that I'm negative (or a twat by my friends).
Re: But.. all of Apple's shops are different?
Thats Apple for you!
Owning an iDevice is embrassing enough for thier clan, but trust Apple to go that little bit further than most sane people.
Honestly! Lame/gay/tragic/<insert slight here>
Another HUGE waste of of time and money.
Good 'ole England!
"The Minister considers this type of conduct offensive and completely unacceptable"
The minister needs sacked and replaced by someone who knows what they are doing.
Who actually gives a shit? It's bollox anyways.
Re: I've filled in the missing option
Not sure? Penis or wanker? Hmmm!
Re: But the numbers also reflect the demographic which owns an iPhone
"If this was the 80s. they would be called Yuppies....."
No, no they wouldn't.
iPhone owners, a demographic which makes more calls and uses more data without worrying about the cost or are just too stupid to notice.
Definately the latter.
Re: Its America
Figures! (WOW the irony)
"just thinking out loud."
"the Tory-led coalition government "only talks to those who have a self interest in reducing their tax contribution" when writing new rules."
Surprise Surprise, money grabbing Tory scum wriggle out of paying their fair share!
What a shocker!
Any NEW NEWS?
someLuser should find more interesting things to do with his time, instead of wasting mine, the twat.
Re: Muslims in Space
"This raises the question of stasis chambers for deep space travel: should Jewish and Muslim astronauts be defrosted (once a week, resp. 5x a day) to do their praying?"
No. Lets leave the crazies here. We don't want to take that nonsense with us.
Iran + ICBM = We're all doomed to wear head dress and chant religious bollox or be nuked.
"At which supermarket chain can you get 24 cans of superstrength fighting lager for a fiver?"
Thats more like it. The shame.
Local TV, really?
Local news is bad enough. Cat stuck up tree, or granny receives award for serving 50,000th cuppa at community centre.
No one will watch it. Bloody Cameron and his ilk. Need shot.
Re: My iphone is tracking my every movement...
"The Location Tracking icon appears in the upper right of my iPhone's screen even though *all* individual apps have Location Services disabled.
*They* (the 'Them-They' They with the capital 'T') are tracking me.
So I'll have to spend the evening driving around to places that do not interest me in the slightest, to throw Them off the track."
Best way. Throw them nonsense.
"I have a shirt that tells me "Do not iron while wearing" I have peanut butter cookies that "MAY CONTAIN NUTS"."
All because of our litigious brothers across the pond. Their evil ways rub off on those who don't want to earn a living in the UK, and go scrounging for money.
"seriously you think Google are the only ones to have tracking cookies... it's just that Safari is such an insecure browser that they are easy to write for!
get a real browser and then you won't have the problems :)"
Does it matter what tech you like? You're all being tracked no matter what you do.
Apple is shite, thats it.
Maybe, just maybe, people are starting to recognise the Apple spit and polish is actually bollox and Apple could not innovate its way out of a paper bag.
Re: Some sense at last
EPIC FAIL for using the word lefty.
Apple shares dives at lower revenues.
Hardly surprising that Samsung are forecasting the same.
I love it. NFC forum have to push its capabilities because joe pleb hasn't got the imagination to think of its capabilities.
The plebs have to wait for Apple to find a killer application for it before it goes mainstream.
Shocking state of affairs.
I'm sure that NFC security was the LAST thing on their minds.
