It's not the WiFi owner

It's bloody Google and their juicy links.

Actually no it's not it's those bloody telco's and their ISP

Ooh maybe not, it's the content providers such as the music, movie and gaming industry

Damn it's every mother lover for providing such juicy content

Dear Brid

did you actually bother watching the show? Had you been drinking? Even a six year old could understand why CyberDanny had emotions. Ugh, I could go on but maybe it's best that I simply ignore your drivel.

Sooooo........

Right wing hate mongers that openly mock facebook are OK - yes you Britain First.

Left wing campaigner who warns people of what can go wrong with corrective surgery isn't.

One has link bait and traffic generating to it's pages and another has an occasional visitor. Seems like a marketing decision to me.

That's by kind of journalism

Bravo, simply bravo - although lets be honest having your HQ in venice is possibly why they never opened the door. I've been there, it's not the nicest. In fact I would go as far to say it's scummy.

If I had of known at the time about whisper and the way it uses data then I would of joined the journo. It would of made my time on the coast more appealing.

Careless Whisper? Anonymous messaging app accused of stalking users, blabbing to Feds

ukgnome
Silver badge

This sounds like a government sponsored app that's used to collect data in an innocuous way. If that's the case then it's a clever ruse. I'm not a tin foil hat wearer but it is a bit creepy.

I have used the app when it came out and found it a bit creepy (I use a lot of social media) , there are are a lot of people using it as hook up app as well as a lot of people using as a way of posting coded messages (speculation). You just have to look at whispers Twitter feed to see some of the things they cream from the whisper feeds.

Anyone that thinks selecting Anonymous will obscure there identity is a douche, even on here the vulture knows.

You are indeed correct. But this isn't just a Voda issue.

I realise that it's my choice to live in the middle class village near the Norfolk Broads but I shouldn't have to stand on a raised platform waiting for a magic one bar just so I can forward my mobile to the land line.

I live in one of the flattest parts of the UK but ALL mobile providers services are totally shit.

Which is why speedtest.net rents servers around the world to respond rather than using one server.

Mobile coverage on trains really is pants

ukgnome
Silver badge

Lack on investment of the railways? Surely not.

OK that's sarcasm, wouldn't it be a simple infrastructure job to place 4G masts alongside the tracks? I thought that was what "call me dave" wanted.

It would be a win for train and mobile providers alike. Decent connection means more subscribers, more subscribers mean more data used, more data used used means more cash. All from the "comfort" of a train.
