One wonders how they plan to implement the ban? DNS blocking or routing to other sites?

Here's quite a good BBC series on Lorenz and Tunny.
The bureaucrats in the FCC wish to expand their empire to control drones.
There is a big threat to the lower end of the aviation industry (crop dusters, news choppers etc) from drones. The threat is not physical but of them being replaced by drones. It is similar to the threat of Uber to the Taxi industry.
Expect much more fear-mongering about drones, and lobbying from the existing aviation industry. Much drone research takes place outside the US for this reason.
Oops installed 'em by accident.
Here's the command line to uninstall:wusa /uninstall /kb:3123862 /norestart
>Why could they not do one of the following:
because it is not their money, it is yours, and PayPal don't really care about security, they just want to look secure, which is much cheaper and easier than actually being secure.
You'll also need to take ownership and remove the Windows\System32\CompatTel folder which contains diagtrackrunner.exe which reports back to MS
You can get the iso from http://www.android-x86.org
You'll need VirtualBox or VmWare to run it on, though, but have more control, and a better VM host than AMI or Bluestacks provide.
There's a great BBC programme from the late 1970's where Welchman is interviewed and his traffic analysis is shown.
HP's new business model for the last 2 years :
* cut costs (mostly by disabling essential business functions)
* buy back stock using proceeds
Indeed, without adaptive optics, a stable mount and and lots of light, this is just marketing.
Even Canon's EF-S lenses battle to focus above 8Mpixel resolution at the edges of the field of view.
Some sample images from Canon would be helpful.
There are quite a few Android apps I'd like to run on my Windows desktop (x86).
There are some third party solutions (BlueStacks) but native would be great.
Probably not. If you want to put on a tin-foil hat then perhaps they received a security letter and chose to shut down rather than disclosing user data?
I guess it is also hard to compete with free offerings from Google, MS and DropBox. Adding end-to-end encryption is pretty easy with all these services, just by using an encryption tool like TrueCrypt http://truecrypt.org for DropBox or SyncDocs http://syncdocs.com for Google Drive. Online (cloud) storage has become a loss leader for these big companies.
According to Mr Snowden, this SMM exploit is/was used by our NSA friends in SOUFFLETROUGH, SCHOOLMONTANA and DEITYBOUNCE for DELL
Good point. Why not just steal the data locally. I don't know if you can use the token for other things, say using a Google Drive token to acces GMail.
Anyway, this is sloppy program design - the sync apps should encrypt the token locally using the machine ID, so they can't so easily be switched.
End-to-end encryption of the data is also a good idea, so data is encrypted at rest on the cloud. Truecrypt does this nicely for Dropbox and Syncdocs encrypts Google Drive.
I'm sure a little donation or lobbying money to a Liberal party "charity" by the local retailers helped persuade the government to change their mind.
Little else would make sense when the cost of collecting the tax is more than the proceeds.
Doctors can bury their mistakes - "unexpected complications"
The Chrome web browser already has a password manager. I don't know if it syncs between devices, but if it does, your passwords are in the cloud.
Windows has the Credential manager in the Control Panel which picks up saved passwords from IE and syncs them across your domain accounts.
Basically anything you put online can be looked at by others. I doubt whether individuals at Google will look at your photos, but their AI machines will.
Encrypting the photos before uploading them can give you some security. Truecrypt http://truecrypt.org is well rated, and there are specific Google Drive encryptors like Syncdocs http://syncdocs.com. All of these security tools add an extra step, and are more hassle. People are lazy, which is why they are seldom used.
Encryption is fine, but it has its downsides - mainly sharing. We use Syncdocs to do end-to-end encryption of Google Drive. It does this perfectly, but sharing files with others outside the company, requires passwords or removal of encryption on the shared file.
I guess you can't have your cake and eat it.
Nothing beats a local backup, cloud to cloud is fine until you have a network outage, or the auditors come. We use Syncdocs to backup Google Drive and Google Apps locally.
A number of people have had their credit card numbers appear on carding forums after using AliExpress. No PCI rules in China.
Indeed. There is little diversity in the market, everyone just keeps on making bigger and bigger monolith shaped devices.
The Palm Pre had a great form factor, and I'd happily buy an Android that was that shape.
I lot of kit will NEVER get patched. Home routers are the biggest worry. Some use bash and not busybox.
This shellshock will be the gift that keeps on giving.
Amazon visits Sydney and Melbourne a few times a year to grab cheapish local talent and move them to the US West coast.
Taming Google Drive is pretty simple too, just install Syncdocs to encrypt Google Drive on the client. Adding an extra layer of security to these cloud storage products is pretty simple, and they manage the disks.
Sure some hacker got some pics of naked movie stars and published them.
What else is being gathered from iCloud that is not making the headlines, stuff like spying or industrial espionage?
Apple's iCloud security has been breached, and we need to know how, password resets or were these passwords in the trove that Russian hackers reportedly stole a while back.
Perhaps it is related to this hack from 3 months ago:
They might not have even known that Apple was backing up their Camera Roll pics to iCloud, it's just built in by default.
Even if it takes three people to approve this, it isn't hard for law enforcement in three countries to lean on them.
If you have really private data, then do not store it in the cloud. The cloud = other peoples computers. If you have to store it in the cloud, then use an end-to-end encryption tool like Truecrypt, PGP or Syncdocs.
Great article, probably the most balanced article on the subject I've read for years!
The Vulture has great articles and the headlines rock, and this headline rocks the box!
Why did Amazon call it Zocalo, though? Not a very business-friendly name, especially for non-Spanish speakers.
It's pretty low-risk, unless you're afraid someone will hog all your bandwidth.
Even Bruce Schneier runs an open network:
The article is lacking in details. Was she also charging her laptop? Assuming she was listening to the mp3 player and charging it too, and one had a floating ground, the current would have flowed through her, from her ears to her lap.
Another question is why the earth leakage did not trip.
The key to backup is not having all your eggs in one basket. If you look at how CodeSpaces just lost all their data on Amazon and closed down they had no plan B, everything was stored in one place.
Hybrid is definitely the way to go, just test the restore capability occasionally. We use the SyncDocs service to backup all our Google Drive and Apps data to our local servers. Not as pure as cloud-only, but we have business continuity if the Internet goes down.
Luckily the Aussie government has allocated a cool $250 Million for school chaplains to console the wicked.
How will you know if you have malware on your iPhone? It is a closed system, and hard to analyse. Apple was bugging everyone's location for years before being discovered.
There have been large numbers of people in the last week in New Zealand and Australia who had ransomware on their iPhones. No mention of that from Cook.
Security through URL obscurity? These were meant to be shared, but only with those who knew the URL.
If you don't want other people having access to something (e.g. your taxes) you shouldn't be putting them in unencrypted cloud storage. Use a tool like TrueCrypt or Syncdocs to encrypt the online files. Simple.
144dB - wow now I can hear the flutter of butterfly wings next to the space shuttle launch. Just what audiophiles needed!
It seems like Dropbox has realized this and is trying to add more features like Google Docs.
Sync is a feature, not a product.
There are third party clients that add lots of features to Google Drive. Syncdocs (http://syncdocs.com) does a good job of selective syncing, one-way backups and encryption.
The outages throughout the year might have been rare, but left a feeling of vulnerability to the AGA cloud giants. It is good to have a backup of the data in the cloud, whether it be on another cloud (like DejaSync) or locally (like SyncDocs)
I'm slightly suspicious of all the free consumer apps like SkyDrive or Dropbox. Once these companies have your data they have you locked in, and are unlikely to change when they start charging.
I backup to Google Drive and also locally. Two backups are better than one. Local is always faster, too.
Syncdocs backs up everything to and from Google Drive. It works on external drives and network paths. It can also encrypt sensitive folders and allows scheduling. http://syncdocs.com
SyncToy is good for local backups, is free, and has all the options you will need to backup and restore stuff to an external hard drive. http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=15155
We need more like him, to cut through the BS of modern corporationdoublespeak
ChromeOS stores everything in Google's cloud: the lack of local storage = lack of privacy
Amazing what we're still discovering, so close to home.
exactly - if you don't control the encryption then it is as good as plaintext.
What sort of attacks is this cloud encryption meant to prevent? Why are they only using 128bit AES?
I use Google Drive, which is likely not the same as Google Storage. Everything sensitive I store on Google Drive gets run through Syncdocs first to AES256 encrypt it.
Driverless cars to hit actual British pedestrian by end of year
Someone needs to say this, as the small print of all cloud services I've seen, no one guarantees backups.
We use Google Apps a lot and have been saved by a small utility called Syncdocs which backs up everything on Google to our local servers every night. Google loses data now and then, although they won't admit it.
For the braver souls there is "Backupify" which backs up all your Google Apps to Amazon.
I'm suspicious of these cloud-to-cloud solutions. If something goes wrong with the network, you're out. There can also be juristictional problems if you ever need the data back.
We use the Syncdocs http://syncdocs.com app to backup our Google Apps customers to their own desktops or servers.
As for the market forces, cloud vendors are going to charge you just enough to make you move. Market forces mean they'd be bad businesspeople to charge a huge amount less.
Local copies are essential. My Google Drive is backed up with the syncdocs.com service which makes full local copies, not just shortcuts, of everything on Google.
