I'd laugh if the grounds team suggested the AuroraWatch guys double checked their data for concordance before making a public announcement.

Re: Is anyone really surprised
Slightly surprised it took this long to hit the skids, mind you they've been quite busy ruining their own network recently.
Re: Perhaps I've missed something here
Game accounts are selling online, some for quite significant amounts of money.
Isn't there more interest from the regulator side?
Even if the engines don't breach regulations, they still lied and under-stated emissions levels.
why in the UK, people have not been able to just return the car as faulty goods?
Well technically the system works really very well...................
"the increase to the PR firm's rate was due to the expanded scope of the firm's work"
and because the PR advisor was now gargling the boss's junk on a nightly basis.
"something in the official statements does not compute"
Maybe because it's all total bullcrap from a public body desperately trying to cover-up it's failings???
Re: Quelle surprise
because a company that advertises in phone boxes and grimey shop doorways is definitely going to be 100% legit.
They won't go away
So teams of highly experienced and very well trained hackers are going to stop what they're doing and go off and take a menial desk job???
I'm sure they'll know full well just how much money can be made on the private (underground) market with the skill set they have.
Perhaps after the Talk Talk scam attempt she did some reading online and found all the articles on El Reg??
or she was just monstrously tired.
This morning I gave the dog my cereal and walked off with his food bowl, sleep deprivation - very bad!
"Concrete attribution however is difficult for groups with solid state support."
Re: First billion dollar fine for robocalling?
Just a pity the British equivalent isn't as effective.
Instead of including individual executives, they'd just take the already liquidated company to court, then make some moronic announcement about "recovering the fine".
Blood from a stone anyone?
Nothing at all....
to do with Pakistani intelligence.
Nothing at all...............................well maybe.
Read between the lines
Hedge fund Corvex Partners has revealed that it owns 10 per cent of the veteran streaming music company
Pandora's shares have almost halved in value over the past year.
They splurged a load of cash thinking they were picking up the next Tech titan.
It's loosing value and they're staring down a big loss.
They want some big sugar daddy to come along and buy the company for a nice premium to get them out of the massive hole they're in.
Re: I don't know why but this made me think of:
I was thinking more:
"There is room", said Councillor Peter Feeney while he was stuffing brown envelopes of cash into his briefcase.
"you can already get a "black box" that logs how you drive."
and they're about as popular as a fart in an elevator.
They're only ever forced on young, in-experienced drivers or those with a very sketchy driving record.
Shockingly Joe Public doesn't actually want some faceless organisation watching his every move.
Re: I cannot
With the obligatory cock spray painted on the front of it.
All down to the people in charge ultimatley
If they operate the friendly "ask me if you have an issue", "no question is stupid" type of business then these would get flagged up, employee's would double check (just a simple phone call) before sending large amounts of money over-seas.
If they're the kind of angry, pent-up moron who barks orders and expects people to fall in line then it's obvious this kind of scam will easily operate.
Re: No it's not, I bought some in a CVS in South Carolina last month
I bought some in CVS last time I was in New York.
They won't ever stop the worst offenders anyway, but I imagine for good PR they have to at least pay lip-service to the idea.
not to mention
The practise of promoting idiot people out of the way, eventually one or several end up in control of something potentially quite important.
Looks like North Dorset got it right, good on them.
Re: Oooo £12
Considering the tablet was on sale in the Black Friday deals for £35 I think?
£12 back on that isn't too shabby at all.
Re: Picture a male Gallus gallus domesticus in its full feathered glory
or a dumptruck for of money being deposited on someones driveway.
Clearly something has been done to change minds.
Re: No pain, no gain
How many complaints could be avoided by not using complete Neanderthals to do the work though?
Blocking storm drains and residents driveways - any halfwit can see thats going to cause a problem.
Designed to Fail??
NK: "Oh look, our satellite made it into orbit, but didn't quite work. We better launch another"
China: "yea ok, that sounds totally plausible, crack on"
I'll look forward to the fix
Next time I buy a new phone, because updates to current models happen so amazingly slow.
A good bargaining chip to have should they want him to roll over and reveal the details of the rest of his crew.
Re: So. How long is the shop banner going to be?
Maybe if you ask nicely they'll give you his phone number, so you can tell the man in person??
He was kidding himself if he thought the music industry weren't going to have his head on a pole.
Why you'd write, release and become the public head of such an obvious target is beyond me?
If you don't believe in it
Does it still exist???
Hackers gained access through a backdoor in our illegal wifi blocking kit.
TNG, DS9, and Voyager overlapped?
Original Trek and Enterprise overlapped in the Generations film
As far as the state of mechanics laptops
Chances are they spend their entire life in the garage and are not connected to the internet anyway.
Especially if the software used isn't updated anymore.
I'd happily take that name if it came with over 20 billion dollars
Re: 32 million??
You could almost argue they don't deserve it back, they'd only give it to the next conman who came knocking.
It wasn't even a good scam, how did he find enough people to part with $32m??
Re: "offered money in order to provide information on his company"
All he needed to do was provide his name, address, DOB, bank details.................
Where is this going?
Taxation dear friend, taxation.
Hottest summer for 500 years is on it's way
My tea leaves told me, so it must be right.
Re: I'll stick with Scan & Quiet PC
eBuyer returns are notoriously difficult, but if you stick to your guns you'll get what you want.
Distance selling regs and credit card protection seem to get the job done if you're in a bind.
Often it's even more complicated
The person originally responsible for initiating sloppy procedure will probably have moved one, having got a pat on the back for 'excellent cost cutting'.
Savings made by forgoing costly security measures, which leaves everyone else carrying the can.
Doubtful for a full story
They could leave themselves wide open for claims of incompetence, intentionally poor security and data mis-management, as well as obvious court cases.
Target took an absolute beating when details for their data breach started to surface.
It is legal???
So what happens if you refuse??
You'd be helping out the Greek Government.
The Greek people are buggered whatever happens.
When the scientific studys start to contradict themselves who do you ask for 'the truth'??
Re: I think...
I think if a criminal is that slick to be able to steal a watch in that way then they'd probably have already gone straight for your wallet, and iphone, jacket and the shirt off your back.
Re: Thank f#ck for that
It's (nearly) election time, so it's time for the Government to start doing things to appease the populous and hopefully win some seats.
Not an obvious target
Sony made a really bad film, about a really dodgy dictator.
No-one was surprised when they got owned so badly.
No-one was even that sympathetic, the film was terrible.
Police usually shoot the perp rather than risk a crease on their uniform from a physical confrontation.
