Jack the RIPA: Blighty cops ignore law, retain innocents' comms data

"and they do not do so to any extent which could reasonably be regarded as significant"

Wish these politicians would fuck off with their double speak!

Either they do or they don't?

she would "fight on until this industry is regulated and the serious risks publicised"...

...or in other words, until I get another "undisclosed settlement" to shut it down.

Pointless....

Do the government really think your average paedo is searching Bing for kiddyfiddlers.com??

We need to make it so politicians who have no clue about the Internet aren't allowed to be involved in drafting laws/policy concerning its use.

Vouchers?

So the plan to invest a mountain of taxpayer cash on a national broadband infrastructure has somehow turned into giving out vouchers so small companies can get a shitty BT connection.

Seems like £90m well spent*

Can we assume everyone who purchased one of the offending Penguin ebooks will get an even cut of the 75mill?

Could that possibly be the fruit based network that has raised prices 3 times within my current 2 year contract to fund their "amazing" new 4g network which doesn't cover anywhere outside the M25?

It's surprising how many besadmin accounts I've seen that had domain admin rather than the local admin permissions it actually needs!

So: 6,500 Win 8 laptops later, how are BT's field engineers coping?

g dot assasin
WTF?

"Biggest investment to date"

Sooooo, does this mean they spent more on some shiny new laptops than they've spent on upgrading the infrastructure they were given pretty much for free by us taxpayers?!

1.5 billion impressions logged

Reller also said Redmond has logged “1.5 billion impressions of customers using the home screen.”

What's an "Impression" and how have they logged it!?

Rather worrying if you ask me....maybe I should have read the EULA a bit more carefully!

This is exactly what I was going to say...

Surely it can't be denied that the iPad now has a monopoly on tablets, why are they not forced to show a browser choice pop up the same as MS are?!

Virgin Media STILL working on fix for SuperHub corrupt downloads glitch

g dot assasin
Facepalm

Re: Virgin....Y U no fix it??

it's only a divx avi file. Ive got quite a few of them, and all the others (downloaded before the new firmware) play fine... Anything I've downloaded since then has the issue

The fugly new GUI that seems designed to hide everything except changing the SSID is pretty annoying as well!

Virgin....Y U no fix it??

Superhub is a massive POS.

It still randomly drops the wireless connection (every 20 minutes) resets itself to factory defaults whenever it feels like it, kicks me off Xbox live after about 45 minutes game time....

Tried downloading a tv episode yesterday and the first 2 mins play fine then it goes into slow motion, I thought I'd grabbed a dodgy torrent, tried another copy.....same thing! This would explain it!!

Time to dig out the old buffalo wzr and try modem only mode.

Re: Re: Re: Do writers dream of electric royalties?

I believe Team America had it right:

"....Dicks also fuck assholes: assholes who just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way. But the only thing that can fuck an asshole is a dick, with some balls"

BBC iPlayer to require TV licence

g dot assasin
Stop

Sneaky...

"By law, retailers have to give licencing your name and address when you purchase equipment capable of receiving TV signals."

Bought a new TV from Comet (I needed one quickly!!) got a letter from TV Licensing within 2 days basically saying "pay us £140 now, or we'll fine you £3000"

How do they know i didnt just buy it to play Xbox on?

F*ckers

re: playing films from NAS

Yep it can.....

Using TVersity you can stream over wifi instantly (it will transcode on the fly if needed)

Just browse to http://YOUR-TVERSITY-SERVER:41952

P.S. You can even annoy your Apple fanboi friends (always fun!) and use a shiny flash interface by adding /flashlib to the end of the url ;)
