Re: I Ask
We don't know yet beyond Machine will use a mix of standard processors (x86 or ARM, say), and then custom silicon to finish the job.
When we find out, we'll let you know.
Re: I'm no Lawyer, but...
"I'm pretty sure that you can't be held to the terms of a contract that you don't sign."
Yeah OK, that bit's not clear. It was supposed to mean either join the party or people will upload stuff anyway. I'll take it out.
Re: No, they're not sekret spying tools
"pcapd - so top sekret it's been a documented developer tool for years"
No - the developer doc you linked to is about analyzing traffic from another device on the network, not by the device itself which is what pcapd does, allegedly. The doc you linked to says "iOS does not support packet tracing directly". That's contradicted by Jonathan's claims.
The other things you link to are not documented by Apple officially (AFAIA). They may well have been known for a while. There's no harm in a serious security researcher joining up all the dots for everyone.
Unless you're just happy doodle dandy with everything as it stands.
Re: Great article.
Perl is perfection. No need to improve it.
The HTTP remote management is on by default. And there is no workaround.
Re: Come on!
The key thing is DHCPv6 from what I can tell. I've tweaked the article.
Don't forget to email email@example.com - your comments won't be seen and articles won't be fixed unless someone drops us a note. And we all want articles accurate, right?
Re: Daniel Palmer
Yeah it was a typo - should be 3.10. Don't forget to email corrections@theregister next time.
Re: Or just plain offensive?
I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
Re: What A Load Of Shit
I was going to take your comment seriously, then I saw your username.
Re: NetApp is also a preferred design reference partner
Full-disclosure: gps1539 works for NetApp.
Re: Digital Sex
"When I saw this story on the Daily Fail"
FWIW on the time delay: we saw this story first emerge on Friday evening (California time), but held off until we were able to obtain the court filing this morning. Just to check, y'know.
Re: I can't believe
"I wasted a few minutes reading Nadella's memo"
We did warn you!
Re: Most obnoxious article title in history
Re: Too Much Clickbait
"Please stop being so clickbaity"
Ah, it was a joke; a sendup of stupid headlines that claim you can make $$$s with one weird trick. Can't you tell it was out of style? Every word was capped up, and it's like no other headline on the front page.
"Jokey headlines - great"
This must be what it feels like to tell a joke on stage and be met with silence.
Re: Re: right to change history
"this no-body MP"
As a point of order, he's the Minister of State for Justice and Civil Liberties; deputy leader of the Lib Dems; Lib Dem president; and been an MP since 1983.
Re: "Roth had notified them about the hole via Twitter"
Actually, Roth contests what ProtonMail suggested - and said he emailed in the vulns.
Re: So is Andrew in favour of the law...
Yes - on both counts.
Re: Radio 4 this morning.
"this article seems to have ignored this event"
If Barron is correct then it's even more crazy - because it's a misunderstanding by Google of the ECJ ruling. Either way, newspaper articles were delisted, not just Peston's blog post, so Andrew's point remains.
Re: How is this Google's fault?
"It's bizarre that the author is trying to blame Google for this"
Reread the article - it's about Google's reaction to the ruling.
"You can bet that if Google could get away with waiting for a court order every time, they would"
Absolutely, so why isn't Google doing just that? Is it worried if it bats every request away the Euro authorities will get mad and fine it?
This is multibillion-dollar Google. It's not poor ickle Google in a Stanford garage being picked on by horrible nasty internet people, no matter how many cutesy doodles it comes up with.
Re: Stupid decision, stupid story, stupid people
"So we get stories like this"
I think you've misread this article and Peston's.
Re: coming round for a chat
"Is that documented?"
I believe we tweeted about it - but yes, a friendly top-level chap from the DA-Notice committee (part of the MoD) came around for a chat in the wake of Duncan Campbell's GCHQ coverage. It was to share advice, rather than impose rules or guidelines.
Re: Re: Over the top?
Daggerchild, the only person here using the words Google and evil is you.
Re: Over the top?
"Guysm can you please stop with the over the top Google hate?"
No, and it's not hate. It's healthy criticism and scrutiny.
Google is the biggest thing on the web; it has near-unlimited power over the day-to-day internet lives of countless millions. Yes, it does a lot of good, but that doesn't give it a free pass. Gigantic corporations need to be kept in check, and that's why we keep the screws turning.
Re: Hang on a minute…
As per the Cisco advisory:
"The vulnerability is due to the presence of a default SSH private key, which is stored in an insecure way on the system"
"So, have Microsoft realised they have dropped a big one here and handed the domains back to noip?"
That appears to be the case - we're following this story up.
Re: Facebook broke the law.
"The author's bias is absurd."
I think Richard is being sarcastic.
"Is there something missing from the story?"
No, but the whole thing is baffling. It's all there and in the linked-to court documents. Microsoft claimed some of the subdomains use MS protected marks, and that No-IP's service was being used to cause:
"the unlawful intrusion into, infection of, and further illegal conduct involving, the personal computers of innocent persons, thereby causing harm to those persons, Microsoft, and the public at large."
So a judge in Las Vegas thought applying the restraining order, and redirecting the nameservers to MS's DNS systems, was just.
You're right - article amended.
Re: Andrew Jones 2
"Journalists reporting / reviewing the Android Wear watches are doing a terrible job so far"
Iain has used the watch for, literally, a day or two. We normally spend a week or longer when preparing a review. As the article says, it's a first look. A review will follow. I'll take your point about the price though and add it in.
Re: Jim 59
"Articles like this indicate that not all is well at Vulture Central."
In what way?
Re: Anonymous coward
No pleasing some people.
Re: More socially needier?
Yeah, all right - should have caught that but it was gone 5pm and my brain was thinking about wine. Don't forget to email corrections@thereg if you spot any errors.
My desire to be grammatically correct overruled hashtag bollocks.
"I wonder if Prof Cyborg will deign to publish his results in a peer-reviewed journal"
I hear the results from Saturday will be put into a paper of some sort. Waiting for the university to get back to me. I gather the uni denied the Telegraph access to the transcripts, so this could turn interesting.
Re: Re: TRAITORS
"I had a high opinion of The Register's editorial maturity"
Maturity? Christ, I need to try harder with the headline innuendo.
Re: Re: Loyal Commenter
"OSA doesn't apply"
I'm advised the OSA applies to all – it's a law not a contract so "individuals are bound by it whether or not they have signed it".
Re: Bit of explanation please
See above post by Lewis, Reg global editor.
All right, all right - I've fixed the numbers to Gbit/s. We always try to publish as readable copy as possible, but sometimes in the heat of deadlines, things slip through.
If you emailed corrections@thereg this could have been fixed hours ago :-(
Depends on your definition of "frequently", I guess ;-)
Re: App Revenue?
A network operator CEO, speaking at MWC 2014, said he was fed up of Apple and Google getting all the action, suggesting operators want in on the app shop cash. That's our reading of the situation.
Some may say that's a courageous move on the part of the cell networks.
Re: Re: Why is Google in charge of the process?
"The '12,000' figure is part of a PR campaign"
Absolutely, IMHO. Google is presumably filing these complaints in /dev/null. Right now, Google wants as much "poor little Google" coverage as it can get – as its brand (in the public's mind) turns from "don't be evil" to "don't unknowingly miss the opportunity to gobble information on everyone".
Re: Bruce Schneier *doesn't* reveal what he'll use
"An article from years back, Bruce Schneier says what he'll use."
You've misread the article :(
