Many parts of the third world use Windows XP. Microsoft should stop being obstinate and continue to provide security updates for free to their operating system especially if they are concerned for a safer internet. LOL

i think Dave could do with a few lessons on IT especially encryption.
Re: So, so so pathetic
Yes. Block Google and get a UK or English company to set up its own search engine for example.
Invade and conquer.
This is the government guru who wanted us to sign on the internet using a facebook account.
Re: FFS the images on your site are getting ridiculous !!
I agree with you. They have changed the design of their sites with more graphics to make their sites easier to use with tablet or phone or finger.
WTF are traffic lights on the internet for anyway. Yet another example of things on the internet which on paper looks good but really should not.
Here is another example. http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/01/internet-attack-could-shut-down-us-gasoline-stations/
Leave the EU?
If this report is true it is probably the best reason I have seen to leave the EU. However, the sycophants in Westminster will probably sign it any way in or out of the EU.
A bit depressing.
I'm not sure Apple can be responsible for the working conditions of tin mines in Indonesia. Its not their domain. Indonesia is a sovereign nation and has its own laws.
I guess Apple and other tech companies could develop a mine in Cornwall if they really wanted to have tin produced by relatively well paid workers. Developing a tin mine does take a few years though.
One for the future Apple, Samsung, Microsoft etc.....
The internet will soon become unusable for secure transactions and communications. I think its doomed.
Seems EE have been nationalised.
Re: Excellent work
You cant tell the banks anything. They know best!!
Re: Spot on
Poor quality of life in the UK. Destroying the welfare state is not going to make it any better and probably a lot worse.
This article is rubbish.
British prudishness when it comes to sex. No sex please we're inhibited. Didn't stop that tory MP a few years ago found hanging with a tangerine in his gob... LOL
He should be sacked. Lazy sod.
Windows OS is a mess.
Microsoft invented the culture of buggy software. "Oh we'll fix that next patch time".
Windows users get excited when they hear the announcement of their new Windows OS "service pack".
I am suprised that Microsoft have not been sued out of existence as they knowingly sell faulty software.
Perhaps they should of really got rid of the NT kernel/FS after XP but they probably didn't bother because it was too expensive(sic) to develop.
This is going to make using windows phone fun! I've just blown by data allowance on yet another total re-write of my phone's OS from MS.
Windows sucks at patch day proves it again and again and again and again and again and again etc...
Goes with the territory.
Apple behaving badly
Its just underhand behaviour by Apple. Not good. Glad the reg wrote the article.
Apple should Buy Adobe
I wish Apple would buy adobe. They could intergrate it into OS X.
You do mean think of the BS.
Re: If they say yes...
You mean every time England does something. Wales and N.Ireland don't exist politically.
Why does IE have so many bugs? Why cant they fix it? Its not a new piece of software. Are Microsoft programmers crap? Perhaps the next update to IE should just uninstall it.
Uninteresting times in IT these days. 64 bit chrome browser from the worlds favorite surveillance company Google. yawn....
They should just put IE completely under the bus.
They should be prosecuted. Another day another leak by another professional IT organisation.
Re: Wait... what?
So who do you ring?
Sounds underwhelming. Lots of eye candy.
Good news. Shame there is so little descent software available for my little phone.
I dunno wimin are so thick when it comes to the internet and computers. Need a good husband to help them click the hyper links.
Some of us may be ignorant but we are not as biased as you. IP employs 7.7 million people. Your having a laugh.
Many users in Asia do not know or care. They still use and ex corporate machines are sold with XP in shops even today.
Re: The picture ..
Look like IMacs to me.
Re: Yeah sure...
GCHQ's boss just got the sack.
I wonder when the UK is going to have its political debate about GCHQ? Anyone written to their MP?
"Others have noted that perhaps GCHQ made a strategic decision not to expose its capabilities in this area."
Just too clever for their own good aren't they.
Another way to get hacked into with no benefit for the user.
Re: They can't snoop it you don't use the device
Trouble is have a beer or five and first four will soon be forgotten.
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.
Re: Kids these days.......
Well I guess the problem is that you'd have to walk or get out of a car or some kind of exercise, but if you can buy them on line they are just delivered. Far more convenient.
Re: Not that I buy into this US-led paranoia about Huawei kit...
Its called Thatcherism.
Re: Never ask governments to pick winners
No its an article written with the benefit of hindsight. Interesting though.
Re: Here is a plan...
Alternatively move your businesses out of the USA. They can afford it. Move to India!! Its cheap!! And welcoming!!
Is spooks the right description? Kids playing games and getting paid to do it.
Also in 2007 the British Economy was booming whereas at the moment it is a flat/depressed.
Re: Is this a story?
Try being a postman for a month. See how you feel.
Why not ask India?
Re: How else is the NHS supposed to do this?
Funny people worried about who has access to their data when GCHQ and the NSA are allowed to access all our on line data. (Health data included)
See the Guardian today..
