Silk Road 2.0 busted! At least two arrests as federal crackdown begins

Re: It's all good

"It's better to keep consumption under control than just let it explode"

Not so sure there would be the explosion you think. Amsterdam or Holland have never exploded in drug use.

Obviously medical drugs need to be controlled but they are not taken for pleasure so are outside the parameters of this debate.

Opiates should be controlled but psychoatives are not really addictive except for the mentally disturbed. People in my experience only take these types of drugs for an experimental period of time.

As for coke and meths well they should be marketed like champagne and vodka. Cocaine is very popular in the USA and certain British politicians.

Watch out, MARTIANS: 1.3 tonne INDIAN ROBOT is on its way

Re: Excuse me India

The Indians don't want the "aid", but Dave insists. Can't you come out with something positive or are you jealous that for £45 million quid India has managed to get a probe(not a firework) into Earth orbit and hopefully in a year's time into orbit with Mars.

They also managed to get the project from the drawing board to launch in 16 months. They could teach our MOD a thing or two about project management.

Re: Re-nationalise BT...

Remedy is not a private company. Remedy describes itself as a "hybrid company".

Remedy is and always has been a government agency.

The selling of shares was thatcherism. The Government always pulls Remedy's strings..... and grabs its data.

I wonder if there is any evidence that children say under 10 actually view hard core porn. Would not suprise me if there isn't.

This piece of legislation is being proposed to satisfy the "dirty minds" of British adults.

No other country I am aware of needs to "protect their children" like this.

Why here?

Re: A disgrace!

This article is more about the management of yahoo and that is why BT are giving them the chop.

They failed to apply a wordpress patch for 8 months and loads of spammers exploited Yahoo mail through this wordpress bug.

Taking 8 months to apply an important patch in most IT departments would be unacceptable but for a company providing millions of e-mail accounts this is clearly unacceptable.

Re: The 4 stages of security response

completely agree with you. Embedded systems never consider security they consider functionality. In this case it does not matter that pilots can overide tampering of aircraft controls its the fact that they can be altered that will distract pilots and thus cause accidents. For a more detailed explanation of this problem and respomse from pilots see http://arstechnica.com/security/2013/04/hacking-commercial-aircraft-with-an-android-app-some-conditions-apply/

Parking ticket firm 'exposed private info' - ICO making enquiries

Syntax Error
FAIL

It Sucks

These services should be returned to the public sector or better still local authorities should receive enough money from central government to have to not rely on "parking fees" to finance their services. The whole system of using public or private companies to obtain revenue sucks from start to finish. Think it was Lord Prescott we should than for this situation.

Hold on! Degrees for all doesn't mean great jobs for all, say profs

Syntax Error
FAIL

Privatised Education

I think this just blows the whole criteria for charging students fees for degree courses. You have no guarantee of earning more money if you obtain a degree.

As the privatisation of higher education is likely to continue I suggest that fees for engineering (Computer/mechanical/electrical) are reduced to zero, and subjects like say english, journalism, politics, History of art and other eclectic subjects be doubled. We might start to produce graduates who are useful to the economy rather than useless overpaid media types.

New rules to end cries of 'WTF... a £10 online booking fee?'

Syntax Error
Stop

The Whole Piint

of paying by debit/credit card is to primarily help the retailer get sell products and services. It is now carte blanche to charge extra for these services. Perhaps the real problem are the charges from the banks to the retailers. Why should you they be able to charge 50p or whatever for a transaction as they ultimately get the money in their accounts and can do what they want with it.

I think this change of regulation is indirectly there to help the poor old banks re-capitalise for some reason and the retailer can amke a profit as well!

When you buy a cinema ticket or whatever how do you know how much the retailer is being charged by the bank?
