'The panel claimed it has been used in the past to commit internet fraud, help paedophiles groom kids online and, tellingly, enabled leaks from Tokyo's Metropolitan Police Department.'
1. Most fraud is committed by politicians, where it is deals behind closed doors, expenses or abuse of position.
2. The Japanese have a penchant for schoolgirl porn and domination sex so what does that tell you that encourages?
3. The justice system and Police department is not fit for purpose.
So the best way to prevent this and divert public attention is to blame Tor.
Not really news is it?
Did she want to make a point, was it a matter of principle to have her day and win in court rather than settle. Or was it bad advice from her lawyers acting on a no win no fee basis who were greedy?
What the hell, take the lawyers to court....
Anonymous? Ho ho ho
Now your soon to be divorced wife knows this, how long before her lawyers demand a copy of your Siri searches....
Kindles are for rentals
A kindle allows you to rent a book. When you die and pass on the books cannot be passed on and disappear into the ether of Amazons dormant accounts.
If this is the case, why is the Government consistently shoving renewables down out throats and charging us for the privilege under the guise that it will make for a cleaner world.
If anything this just goes to prove that we are being taken along for the ride. We must be mugs to put up with it.
So I have an iPad and iPad mini for when I'm out and about working, but I'm supposed to ditch them in favour of a Kindle?
Re: Win8/Office365 driving customers away fromMicrosoft.
'You are quite clearly someone who's never seen or used Win8 as what you've described does not happen in real world usage and the stuff you said did happen you have to deliberately go out of your way to do.'
That just about says it all, about you and the operating system. Do we all have to go on re-training courses to actually get to grips with it. Moving from Win 7 or Vista or XP to Win 8 should not be an ordeal, but it is to some people and that is a fact so belittling someone who is struggling with it serves no purpose.
Instead of berating someone and showing your immaturity, why not offer a polite explanation and help them out and not be so ignorant.
This is a panic utility, quick do something, anything hurry!
But it's all in a name...
Hey guys look at my padphone......
Nope, just does to have the right ring to it.
Re: Why ever not? Yes...
They have a duty of care and so do the manufacturers.
However the practice is that once they have sold it to you, maybe given you an update or two they are off trying to sell you a new phone while at the same time saying your old phone cannot be upgraded to the new OS.
This is usually a lie.
Unless there is some nasty red planet disease waiting for them?
A new TV series...
On the iStore.........
Where where where?
Re: The recent incident was unfortunate
Yeah, so now we know why the phone has been getting such 'great' press, bet they also got people to write favourable reviews while knocking HTC down.
Would you trust a Chinese website to offer you dodgy pirated apps to download and put on your phone?
Even if they claim it does not require you to jailbreak it.
If you do, I've got a great deal, fake gold, buy it here....... Roll up roll up...
Re: Declining number of speakers you say?
The Welsh assembly will demand it, the English tax payer will pay for it.
The welsh lobby
The Welsh lobby generally make more noise than their actual size suggests.
Re: Seller beware
I liked the one a few years ago in Canada where a store took in returns of iPads that had been paid for with cash and so long as the package looked unopened they didn't check the contents.
The 'iPad' was then sold on to the next customer who took it home, opened it and found a lump of clay.
Now that was funny.
Re: Symptom or disease?
You are obviously not a parent. Both my son and daughter like playing the odd game, such as Fireman Sam and Angry Birds. 'Symptom or disease' is a sweeping statement, used to describe the use as a pacifier is not correct in the slightest especially when you consider the limited time they may have with the device, such as the time it takes to queue up for a coffee in a shop while they wait at the table.
I always switch to airplane mode before they get the device, yet on occasions I find that the childrens 'game' has tried to access the Internet because somewhere along the line there has been an accidental press of the button.
It is down to parental supervision, but when ad companies target young children in such a way it is wrong. They are taken out of a safe area and an attempt has been made to serve them up ads on a web page and this is embedded in childrens games.
The developers know this without a doubt and could stop it but don't .A simple solution would be to ban in app purchases and diversions to web pages etc on all games and apps targeted at children. The apps could be marked in such a way that they comply with these standards.
The firs developers that do this will make a lot of money.
Live in purgatory.......
A home screen that rolls inane, uninteresting, insignificant and boring updates from uninteresting boring insignificant self important peoples lives who live with this false belief that their egotistical self importantance is in anyway of interest to the rest of us.
This is what happens if you are bad and go to hell when you die......
Ouch, ouch, ouch ouch.....
Give money to a public service to spend on IT=Fail
Re: They bought a stolen laptop.
The more that people are humiliated and caught out then the less chance they will buy the stolen property.
I say spread the news and if it mortified them so much they should return it.
They are probably related to the the person who sent it anyway.
Re: So when.....
You're right, now there is a legal defence for air rage... The new 'Hulk' defence.....
As you can see this is the favourite Aussie position, honed after years of breeding sheep.......
The quality of the picture is better here because the Street View driver took his time driving past........
First a filter, then it will be a demand that you buy either satellite or a whole new free view box.
I love the bit about, 'if you didn't get a letter it won't be out fault'.....
A great opportunity
For a country, state, county or even a town to enact a national or local law which states an electrical device such as a laptop, tablet or even phone must come with a three year all parts and labour warranty.
Without of course hiding the cost in the purchase price of the item.
Re: Maybe Not, but why do they keep telling me I should switch
As I live in an area where we are barely able to get a 3G signal, why do Orange keep asking me if I was to switch to the 4G tariffs?
I anticipate 4G arriving in this area sometime in 2091.
Before anyone moans about her...
The Labour Party first under Blair and then Brown could have, with such a large majority in Parliament over turned everything she and John 'Privatise Everything' Major had done.
They did not and THAT speaks volumes for her policies.
Doomed to fail right from the start.
The judge and family have been given a few 'free' samples to examine.
'Lousy jobs' was this survey run by an American.
I hate these americanisms.
I suppose it is the only way to keep them in business, through subsidy.
I've said it before and I will say it again, US lawmakers are extremely creative in what they decide is criminal activity and even when the activity takes place outside of their jurisdiction. They just change the rules as and where necessary.
A cover up
Don't be conned by the report, it was the bankers pure and simple, without the bankers, no loans could have been given, no mortgages provided and no PPI sold, and no huge bonuses paid out.
Don't kid yourselves, they'll look for a few scapegoats to pin it on.
They just want to change the lasting image of the bent overpaid bankers, the report not blaming them is the beginning.
A google safety feature.
At least in OZ they admit to arresting him.
The Americans would deny all knowledge of the arrest as he is spirited away into Oblivion.
Like a woman's monthly cycle
There are ups and downs.....
And downs and ups.
Statistics if they are to mean something should not be based on a snap shot.
Re: Here Here!
Here Here again, the patent should remain with the one that files the patent, they should not be able to sell it. If a patent infringement occurs, the patent holder who filed the patent can then instruct someone to act for them. There are enough no win no fee sharks out there..
Re: Yeh right.
You'd not trust our legal system here in the UK... Why trust anyone else, and the Americans can be very creative when it comes to breaking the Law.
Re: Fixed that for you
The New windows 8.1 is.............
Re: "Nothing to hide, nothing to fear"
The Oz answer to the Animal Rights surveillance drone....
I remember a guy had set up an app for what in effect was a BBC newsfeed on Android when there wasn't one, and another who had a free BBC iPlayer on Android that you could even record program's with. This was before the BBC had even developed one... Needless to say the courts stopped it.
Re: Why would a sane person buy one?
Why? There are enough self-important Facebook users out there who think the unimportant, boring, uninteresting minutiae of their sad lives must be shared with the world. To them the pinnacle of smartphones would be a Facebook phone, in their minds this phone gives them affirmation, that they are important to the rest the Universe. Their circle of friends will of course coo and fawn over them and aspire and covet such a phone, thus increasing their own self-importance.
An Amazon phone on the other hand would probably be cheap to buy, cheap to run, cheap to replace Nd come with free delivery on all purchases. Not something you'd want to get out at the pub though.
Re: April Fools!
Re: The Tree is Dead
The industry tries to kid us that we need expensive Ultrabooks, then it tries to kid us we need a new operating system, then it tries to kid us that laptops and desktops need touch screens, then it tries to kid us we need to upgrade to ensure we have the fastest experience possible.
The consumer on the other hand has got wise to this crap..........
Re: Detest the evil things
You could try orange peel on the garden, failing that, collect the sh*t and then throw it back late at night.
My neighbour who had the cat (they've left now) asked me if I had seen any cats climbing over the fence into his garden. He couldn't understand why he had so much sh*t in his, as his cat never made a mess in the garden!
