cf andrew carnegie, who isn't remembered (much) for his monopolistic activities.
So a serverless web app is one which relies on a remote machine not supporting http connections?
Re: You Missed The Real Story
SSL has been been broken for years
these are the people pimping my medical records without consent?
Big Food trying to get themselves in the same sentence as healthy.
Similar to tooth rotting substances having 'nutritional' information on them and manufacturers of fat inducing substances sponsoring the Olympics.
the way of compromising them is called developed vetting. the spooks have the dirt on everyone who's anywhere near classified info.
the internet just gets worse and worse.
another step on the road to a police state.
'victim surcharge' which doesn't go anywhere near a victim.
bureaucratic shroud waving by an arch bureaucrat.
impressively stupid even by american standards. I go to a foreign country, set up shop and I have to obey their laws? whatever next?
a lot of yanks do think like this though, the constitution seems to follow them around and give them the right to bear arms anywhere on the planet. there was a story that the swiss faced down and disarmed presidential (ie us president) bodyguards at an airport. nice story if true...
this isn't going anywhere, bt have got their man into no. 10, next to Google.
call me dave will be an even richer man when he leaves govt.
"cleansed of identifying data"
article then goes on to state (accurately) that the data can be doxed, but it's all OK because the highways guys are nice and cuddly. puhleeze.
have to agree with bb about touchscreen phones: a complete pita. OK for tablets I'm sure but a gimmick on a phone.
schengen == id cards
Re: Not a shock
would be almost worth paying more tax if it meant the cops would tase people into spelling properly.
just love the snarky quotes around 'dignity' - something el reg hacks have no need for?
paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.
Re: Weak random number ? Compromised certificates ?
"encode it with a version of GnuPG that you
have compiled yourself"
are you sure your compiler hasn't been backdoored? ken thomson gave himself an account on every Unix box there was...
see reflections on trusting trust.
Re: Before you slag them all off..
Mydex are as bad as the rest of them, they'll be pimping your data as well, never fear. If it's a free service, you are the product.
usual think tank bollocks - as bad as management 'consultants'
"name, an address, date of birth, national insurance number" you're saying this isn't sensitive personal data? Like to give me your details and I'll see what I can do with them?
This whole thing is legalistic timewasting, they're guilty, fine the idiots half their annual budget. As for the perennial harping on about the taxpayers paying the fine, that's ok, the taxpayers are responsible for what is done in their name.
private sector rarely has really sensitive personal data hence public sector over represented in data protection breaches. still inexcusable though.
just to reiterate
snowden's denial: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/aug/23/uk-government-independent-military-base
perhaps an update to the article would be good?
so they're selling us out then.
"users' data is theoretically accessible to US
spooks in the National Security Agency"
this is by design.
nice work if you can get it.
Re: None of this makes any sense
"Why casually drop such an
important revelation in the midst of an
editorial commentary when one would expect
front page banner headlines?"
understatement dear boy.
it's OK, call me dave has a ppe, he got it from oxford.
Re: I think Google just managed to exclude their products and services ...
no chance, Google are embedded in 10 downing street. try Googling it!
fastmail.fm is an Australian co. taken over by opera. seem OK, but I'm one of the strange people who pays for email service.
legally and procedurally sound
this has precisely nothing to do with terrorism. just the filth doing some bullying whilst on a fishing expedition.
Re: Damned if they do and damned if they don't
I think the public (and call me dave) would be shocked, shocked, at the sort filth there is in the British library's collections. It's not called a deposit library for nothing.
Re: Credit cards?
Not this UKian; never had a pin on my bank card, to the confusion of a lot of shop assistants
nothing to see here, move along
the slides have top secret written on them.
the article makes it quite clear that they are querying such data as they can manage to warehouse- a few days worth.
this reg article looks like churnalism.
what is this 'pension fund' of which you speak?
Re: God I love the Justification....
