is HeartBleed a HoneyPot?
If dilution is the solution to pollution at sea what is the solution of containment in the worst possible case scenario?
Take note US
Here in the UK we appoint arts trained administers to administrate in technologically demanding environments. So there?
if that is what the public want, expect and will pay for where is the harm in that?
As if by blaming someone, some nation or some organization the problems were optimised to Min or to Max accordingly?
have a beer dude!
Hey NSA/GCHQ could you do something useful for us for a change?
Hmmm seems sensible.
You'd think with a business model generating 2 trillion gazillion billion of trade on a worldwide basis in hardware, software and content that someone, somewhere might say something like "yeah - but we need it to be sanitized?"
Maybe the open-open view of internet is okay but maybe a closed-closed internet has a commercial basis too?
Re: Taking a Walk on the WWWild
Just drink in the beauty or the words - treat it as a poem rather than a definition if that helps.
RT showed pictures from Ukrainian news broadcast about leader of right wing extremist party claimed to have been shot dead while resisting arrest by Ukrainian police. Comment was made about the dead man wearing handcuffs behind his back.
Here in the UK the death under circumstances of a leader in the move to change political regime in Ukraine was not reported at the time although it was mentioned a few days later on lines of "oh by the way leader of Ukrainian Nationalist party was shot while resisting arrest by Ukrainian police".
On the other hand on the weekend when Russian forces formally entered Crimea nowt were broadcast about it on RT but western media got into a bit of a frenzy about it.
Interim conclusion: when such divergence is shown in press and news some serious s*it and influence is being exerted at almost a subliminal level.
PS: anyone notice that the modern bad guys in US TV series are now Syrian?
Maybe it is possible?
but it will probably require efficiencies such as the wage bill remains the same but number of employees increases.
And they are not going to do that now are they?
True, true and doubleplus goodly of you to state so and trebleplus due diligence should determine first whether it was legal or illegal to make the test?
I was due to make an online payment so I diligently checked that the website I need to use for said online payment was secure before making payment.
My online payment was conditional on due diligence check of the payment website?
Re: Dodgy website admins
The computer provider should provide the means or the information for a computer owner to keep kit free from malware and not free.
Analogy: car, driver, car owner
Car owner has a duty to make sure car is roadworthy.
Here in the UK that might mean annual computer worthiness checks with MOT certificate
Bloop bloop de-bloop!
If someone gave you a contract to rob a bank in the high street you would be responsible.
Someone driving for a living (bus driver, truck driver, taxi driver, ... ) instructed by boss to get there in ten minutes, driver breaks speed limit to get there in 10 minutes, driver broke law, driver (not boss) is responsible.
Should have ...
... put its pants on...
That is probably on top of any informal browsing on Facebook?
ARM business plan?
1 - keep on with the tablet, phablet, smartphone stuff
2 - keep on with the penetrations server side (this too is a recursive thing)
They were going to do it, had it planned but then there was disaster then Iraq then Afghanistan then Bosnia then Libya then finance sector meltdown then intervention to deal with finance sector meltdown (I think they call it financial easing?) then ... and now potentially there is Ukraine.
So, you see, it has always been on the cards but seriously more important stuff barged it out of the way and gobbled up available capital, reserve and maxed out guvmint borrowing.
Sad, very, very sad?
Aint no chances?
1 - US is broke and has enough money for wars but not for financial, social or political reforms
2 - Ruskies are used to hardships given weather, geology and geography of their habitat. Space is just a natural extension of that and the moon a natural extension of that (it is a recursive thang no?)
3 - heck, India and China have more chance of setting bases on the moon than US and EU combined (partly due to US and EU financial services and socio-politico consequences of how it has been dealt.
4 - US and EU will reserve enough resource to ensure it can individually or jointly participate in armed conflict formal or informal.
5 - what's wrong with flares?
Do I detect a whiff of hype in the way Heartbleed has been announced, denounced or pronounced?
PC market doubts
If the Dell OS on a stick ecosystem with PC on a stick provided you bring your own keyboard, mouse, monitor and wires is cost effectively doable then there is and will be new urgency in PC market.
If not, I can't imagine people queuing up to get a PC.
Ditch the Co-op?
What was that Bolton based bank run by a local entrepreneur for local businesses and employers?
Maybe that will be the new 'co-op'?
It looks like the bane of the banks (that is the Co-op bank) with ethical investment policy going back years (it did not invest in apartheid regimes when other banks filled their profit bellies with profits from slavery and slave labour?) has become the target of speculators.
Flower actions, Coleman's vitriolic backlash of words to a gentle, weakened giant designed to cause maximal disruption and now this ...
I only hope that unlike UK Labour Party the Co-op has rediscovered its roots.
Is Linux making it into mainstream consumer market?
Do it well Dell!
The whole world waits ...
... in eager anticipation.
Should Apple do a new, value product in the 300 - 600 UKP price range it will be another winner.
Heck, it is worth doing just as a marketing exercise to get users in to the Apple way of doing things (mindset and working methods).
Hmmm, random factor: Mr Ives
What will he promote, develop and endorse?
That explains a lot?
skeuomorphism - Aha!
Was it Snow Leopard that introduced an icky filofax looking address book contrary to what had gone before?
It looked oh-so Lotus Smartsuite Organiser-like and oh-so late 1990's out of charaterness with most if not all previous OS realities.
I think I'll start saving for iOS 8 devices and next OS to be
China has a whole city sector somewhere dedicated to care of the infirm and/or elderly and that it is expensive and underpopulated.
Maybe in city trials completed in China under partnership might be a 21st century way to do things?
... who delayed Office for iOS in the first place?
Most managers ...
... should be able to increase dividends even if turnover is declining by using basic cost reducing, efficiency improving approaches with optimising sales, or contract, income generation no?
It may not be a single issue event - temperature change that is - and it may have varied consequence.
Gas releases on land and in sea
Preserved viral thingies and bugs or variants of viral things that might like human hosts
Then there are sea level issues
Crops and environment issues
Apparently someone earned over a million spondoolies by an email to a UK educational establishments (they used to be schools but nowadays ... )
So long as the message appears believable it seems to work?
Can it do PowerPoint slides?
Sweden > Switzerland via EU servers
Sweden > Uncle Sam > Switzerland with data sniffing and NSA compliance looks at least a little bit dodgy n'est pas?
Even if the EU server route data sniffed at least citizens would have recourse to action.
With Uncle Sam?
Remember: no taxation without representation?
no data slurping without representation should be new dilemma?
What would ...
people think if
(a) it was the Russian Federation Trade Representative
(b) China Trade Representative
squealing for the data to be circulated to them?
Maybe on an equal basis/footing in order to ...
EU: yeh we want an EU only limited network under principle that all electronic transactions (yes, including credit cards :-) ) to and fro in EU must remain in EU.
and a second principle that a nation must communicate directly to another nation. So no bouncing to USA for stuff going from UK to France or UK to New Zealand.
USA: but we want blah-blah-de-blah
EU: how much are you prepared to pay to get what you want? Enough to reduce EU taxes to single figure levels?
Or a WiFi or BT linked earphone and mouthpiece so person can take n make mobile calls using any size tablet (ARM are u listening? I bet Intel are :-) )
So, there you go, tablet becomes base station devices become tethered to base station using WiFi BT or wire.
Suitable for next years markets and marketing dudes?
(Its a good job I've got IP on those?)
Internet of Things or Connectivity?
Maybe a better way would be to allow tablets to tether in useful ways to, say, bar code scanner.
The big tablet is on trolley affair BT'd or WiFi'd to small device to (a) protect big device and (b) allow small device (less expensive) to be placed in "at risk use"
You know just like how HP 2210 used to do things :-| (embarrassed smirk?)
(You earthlings always get so very close to a great working solution and zap it into non-connerce?)
Re: re. use in portrait orientation
There used to be a clipboard thingy that took whatever was written or drawn on paper, converted it to vector graphics (text as well), then allowed character recognition courtesy of ai.
It only cost £50 so could not have been too good?
A brontosaurus the size of a Whale?
Is there a "due diligence" argument that would form a reasonable basis for the existence of these websites?
Essential criteria would need to have something along lines of "justified cause" otherwise pecuniary advantage might become the single motivator?
The saddest part is that David & Goliath battles still seem essential and necessary for common good even in 21st century?
There you go:
1 - insurance a la motor vehicles (TPO to fully comp)
2 - licence to use drone (requires drone is registered and has its MOT)
3 - responsibility rests with pilot, instructor, mechanics, the tea-trolley, owner, lender, trustee, …
4 - (left for you dear reader?)
is it doable?
filename something like: blahblah.123.exe.567
Remove last 4 characters in name string
activate the renamed attachment?
What happened to
Galileo (EU GPS satnav thingy)
Are they still talking about it?
Last I heard (about 2003) was that the meetings were going ahead, the funding was being drawn but no satellite actions taken.
I won't believe it until I can see it and check it for myself
Is it an NSA ploy to "amend" content in a way that obfuscates the original content?
You know, a bit like how Hollywood rewrites history?
1 - remember network navigator used to charge $10 (I think) until MS introduced IE - for free
(MS knows how to capture market share)
2 - Apple's client group sort of trusts Apple and puts up with its products?
3 - MS client group wonder what all the hype is about only to be disappointed (again)?
Bugga! Its changed again!
We'll have to catch up on this too and I hope there aint any newer stuff out there or we'll have to catch up on that as well?
Look away for a second (alright, 10 years?) and it all changes.
I worked at a place with a canteen just like that.
Re: Could be Linux's big break
It also seems like an excellent opportunity for linux hater hackers to target TU guvmin agencies.
Maybe rather than shouting all about it before they do it it would be better to shout after it were done?
- Batten down the hatches, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS due in TWO DAYS
- Mounties get their man: Heartbleed hacker suspect, 19, CUFFED
- Samsung Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanner hacked in just 4 DAYS
- Did a date calculation bug just cost hard-up Co-op Bank £110m?
- Feast your PUNY eyes on highest resolution phone display EVER
