i'm dubious of this. HAving looked at the more comprehensive article on Wired the FBI are being typically vague. I'd suggest that they infact infected all 33 pages from the myspace group, and by process of elimination found their man.
I doubt very much if thats a constitionally valid course of action.
She knows a dubious course of action when she sees one.
TPB use the precedent set to raise a class action suit on behalf of all europeans against Verbatim/ Sony/ Iomega/ TDK/ BASF/ SanDisk/ Hitachi/ Western Digital
Thats before we get to the software people, Iøm sure MS assists in copyright infringment.
I'm quite sure a competant team will have this judge begging for mercy before long. Its not that I agree with what they are doing, but I just don't think its fair or "just" to single them out. Especially when there are clearly much bigger fish to fry.
I bet our Paris loves a big fish
thanks for these
(she does great work too)
imagine a bowulf cluster of those
... no, hold on, wait ...
I'll get me coat.
(Paris 'cos she loves a cluster)
let me get this right
They are now saying, no one can access the data, and we don't need to carry it.
Excuse me if this seems a little f'king redundant.
(hilton will never be redundant)
so they'll change the law
to make it fit their aspirations.
Its what government do.
FIPR have apparently even been kind enough to highlight the exact chapter of the current legislation which needs a minor tweak.
I almost want to suggest that we should have kept quiet and sued them into the abyss after the fact.
its two pears humping
not much else to say
i'm glad that mark whasisface...
won't be getting that hugely over-rated sum.
Silly sausage, he should have sold it while it was obviously peaking.
moreover, I'm deeply enjoying the smug satisfaction that a whole slew of these stories are now now going to spread through the outlets, and I'll sit back watching the vacuous and banal gawp in stunned silence, as another of their "it changes everything" slides into the deadpool.
You summed it up perfectly with the whole "log in, spy on a few exes, log off".
the businessy oriented ones are not much better. show me a fully featured IM client
paris angle: vacuuous twat
(extra 'u' intended)
the title could so easily have been:

re: comments disabled
they weren't disabled at the outset.
i managed to get one in.
it wasn't polite, but it was to the point.
Anonymous Coward be warned, your cards are marked and your days are numbered! Talk that that is simply not acceptable. Do not pass go, and certainly do not write angsty teen poetry on the back of till receipts whilst working a minimum wage job.
Check the lifts
Somebody dies in custody. Destroy the tapes. Problem solved.
I bet the CIA check the reg every friday for insight on how to go about covering up such monumental cockups.
In fact, I bet there`s a whole host of terrorists trapped in lifts around Langley.
this is weak
so we can now influence our own search results.
this idea seems redundant.
Eitherway, i'm not particularly fussed, since I no longer use a google account, and I wont be logging in to adulterate my search results.
This whole pandering to the "crowd" and letting them "vote" is getting out of hand.
next thing you know, they'll want us to pick our governments.
No, hold on...
I'll get me coat
any chance we can have a quality metric?

What Australia actually lacks is a good reason to buy the kit mentioned in the first place.
just a thought.
hah, mine was better. I had 56K.
oh, theres my coat. cabs waiting, see ya.
oh, before I go.
Sometimes, I wish I had no soul, then I could work in marketing and sell all these lies, upto 4x10^6Mb/s with unlimited downloads.
I do feel bad for the ISPs, but they went along with the lies, so really, I don't feel that bad. They painted them selves into a corner. They promoted a business model which was a fabrication.
I've overpaid for crappy service, I've been kicked off ISPs for "unfair use" (that was funny, it was kazaa, BT, and a 33.6K modem)
Quite simply, I'm waiting for the middle class moral outrage while the ISPs play victim.
meh, its one of the reason I left the country, doesn't affect me.
(that'd be the international NIMBY)
all this belly aching is already redundant.
the format of choice is clearly going to be VOD. Its a done deal. the Xbox and the PS3 are more than capable of delivering it. The discs are too late to the game, they are dead in the water.
Yep - what worked for the newspapers
is bound to work for the telly.
I revel in the vast choice of well informed, lucid, and balanced newspaper articles available to me everyday. Not the celebrity pap, human interest drivel and middle bollocks you'd expect to see from a populist lowest-common-denominator-driven model of information provision.
Actually, stop the press, I may have got that wrong!
that article would have got bully's star prize.

I think you've posted on the wrong forum.

Hope you enjoyed your stay, don't let the door hit you on the way out.
it could be worse...
we could tune in every week to find out novel ways to use an electro magnet, or, to find out whether the PFY is still stuck in the elevator (etc etc)...
I left the UK last year
This scheme was one of the many deciding factors.
I didn't have anything to hide, I'll be honest and open when asked in fact.
However, that doesn't mean I'll endorse a system which will happily shunt my personal & private data around to anybody on a temp contract in any of the massive bureaucracies. I think its a little naive to do so.
I haven't taken a new nationality yet, so I still have the opportunity to vote. Problem is, I can't endorse any of the options available, and in all honesty I'd feel ethically violated in lending my support to them.
it will allow for broadband speeds of up to ...
they can upgrade their network all they like.
I think we all know why the actual speeds advertised can't be achieved, but it will not stop them advertising what amounts to utter rubbish.
Last mile fibre?
Now that would be a network upgrade worth talking about.
if i remember correctly
the police declined the opportunity to help inflate the database with their own samples.
odd, I can't think why?
Also, what I don't understand is they rarely break out the DNA kit anyway.
If my car is stolen (as is pointed out above) they can usually only be bothered to issue an incident number, even if the car is subsequently found.
I'm glad I left.
school is for socialising not learning
Any middle class parent will substantiate this.
The rise of the private tutor is the key indicator to follow.
If parents can't afford private tution, so be it.

RE: blow job
it hadn't occurred, but that image is now forever sullied.
I shall of course take great pains to inform all and sundry of it remarkable likeness.
