Crafty fingering could let Apple Watch thieves raid your bank account

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.

Nork hackers no pantomime villains, but a hugely unpredictable menace

tmTM

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.

There's also the issue that the screener copies can get stolen without the screener's knowledge

Happened in a couple of recent Oscars didn't it??

I seem to remember the 'source' of one leak was the person presenting the Oscars.

Euro broadcast industry still in a fug over that 4K-ing UHD telly

tmTM

"Satellite is the ideal way to distribute 4K. We will drive it just as we did with HD"

Isn't most of the Satellite stuff in the UK 720p??

Surely they could treat us to full HD before going to 4K.

or are we going to get half UHD???

With sod-all content.

There's next to nothing available right now, but still the push is to get more sets out there and not on the content to actually watch on them???

Some stuff does and some stuff does not say free delivery.

Although I don't know if you put a free delivery item in with the other stuff does it make the entire order free delivery??

My last order was Free next day delivery (which is now a day late) ho ho ho Yodel.

Firms will have to report OWN diverted profits under 'Google Tax' law

"little administrative detail provided to help companies prepare for the new rules"

We're still not quite sure how we're going to dodge around this new law.

Well not quite, because BT and Openreach are separate.

I guess the confusion arises because both companies can give utterly rubish customer service.

The Toyota Aygo is PARKtastic ... but it is very much a City slicker

tmTM

Hows it compare on price??

The Old C1/107 cars were hands down the best budget buy in their day.

They were a good thousand pounds cheaper than the Toyota for pretty much identical spec.

I think we caught the dealer on a good day with our 107, it was an old spec/reg they needed to shift, it was so cheap we needed to double check the figure.

Thats a little bit generous really.

Re: Russian conspiracy?

Orbital Sciences claim to have fully refurbished and updated the Russian engines.

So it's unlikely the Russians sold them a dud as they've been totally rebuild and reworked by the OS lot.

Call of Duty daddy considers launching own movie studio

Don't even bother

Just stick Metal Gear Solid on.

No-one can tell that it's a game anyway, it's just a over-complex silly film about a man in tight clothes.

Lawyer for alleged Silk Road kingpin wants all evidence thrown out

tmTM

but I thought

his main defence was:

"It wasn't me guv"

So isn't this defence, "you got that evidence from me illegally" merely saying, that yes it was him but it's not valid because they didn't follow the rules???

Hamas hacks Israeli TV sat channel to broadcast pics of Gaza wounded

Or

There was no hack.

because any Israeli watching that broadcast would probably think:

"Bomb them back to the stone age"

Instant public support for a ground incursion into Gaza.

NSA: 'Dozens of attacks' prevented by snooping

Re: "NSA's "intent" to get specific figures on the number of attacks prevent out in the next week."

Well they defiantly helped things in Boston.

and the data given to GCHQ certainly helped prevent the recent attack on a soldier in London.

Data recovery costs?

Sure from a couple of servers, but no workstation should have any data worth recovering on.

Format and shove a fresh Image on the workstations and worry about a couple of servers later.

Good to see even the efficient Germans can manage to employ time and money wasting morons in the government.

Review: Sony Xperia Z

tmTM

Xenon Flash

I agree I'd much rather have this feature, it's something really missing IMO.

I've never dropped a phone down the toilet or into a bucket of water so that feature is neither here nor there for me.

I wonder how long those flaps will stay attached anyway, considering most would be getting this on a 2 year contract.

Licenced Hunters?

We have people that need jobs and too many tasty animals roaming around the countryside.

Surely this should be a self solving problem, the government could also make a quick buck on hunting licence fee's.

or we could all continue eating suspect meat from the supermarket???
