Apple's iPhone bonk to 'Pay' app launches on Monday

JoshOvki

Spending Limit + Theft

Currently using a contact-less card you are limited to a max of £20 per transaction and after so many transactions you are asked to use chip and pin. Does the iPhone have a similar method to stop someone clearing out your bank account if they take your phone?

Also it is the banks that are responsible for any dodgy payments taken with contactless cards, who is responsible when it comes to buying with the phone?

"Essentially, stop showing its own products in a different way than standard results. Stop showing a map from Google Maps when searching for an address. Stop inserting a box of reviews from Google Hotel Finder when searching for "Hotel in London". Stop showing results from Google Flights when searching for "flight from LA to SF". Stop displaying results from Google Shopping with pictures."

But I enjoy them features, that is one of the reasons I use Google because it gives all of the information I want without the hassle.

"The day Google started displaying unit conversions when searching for "10 miles in km", a dozen websites lost 90% of their traffic. "

Well perhaps they should have come up with a better business plan. How much revenue did HMV loose when Spotify came about? You don't see Spotify being fined for having a better business plan.

Jesus phone RAISED from DEAD. Watch iPhone 6 get BURNED, DROWNED, SMASHED

JoshOvki

Re: Slightly impressed...

That is very true. Makes me think about how many phones I have had, get water damaged! I am glad they are starting to make phones more resistant to water and not just carry on the trend of putting a load of moisture sensors inside so they wouldn't need to fix them.

Re: unlimited login attempts/client certificates

In that case have a 30 minute time out, 3 wrong attempts you need to wait 30 minutes. 720 passwords can then be tried in a day, which makes it infeasible. As for becoming a denial-of-service path, I would rather that than my nude pictures get released, and then my password changed which becomes a denial-of-service path.

"will have minimum speeds of at least 2Mbps."

I think they read the contract wrong, when they say a minimum speed what they really mean is "UP TO" 2Mbps. I bet they also wrote unlimited in there somewhere too...

Appeals court decides Dotcom warrant was legal after all

Re: When Big Brother Is After You

"Who will protect you when we come and steal your home and possessions "

I think the better version of that would be:

Who will protect you when we come and made a copy of your home and possessions...

I will still have my home and possessions, and you will have a duplicate (which in my opinion is not a bad idea as I like my home and possessions).

Dell feels cold probe of US Dept of Justice amid Syria PC sales claims

JoshOvki

Re: Misplaced Anger Much? Not Dell's Fault here!

I think a more appropriate example would be:

It's like saying you should of known that an alcoholic would drive drunk so you should of never sold the car to the person that has given them the car keys.

Unless someone in Syria filled in the Warranty Card saying "Yes we use your equipment here for evil, mwhahaha" etc how was Dell to even know that their kit was being shipped to Syria?

Re: Too much average coffee

You should try "The Plan" coffee shop in Morgan Arcade in Cardiff.

Re: Charity

But with most DVD copies the original was purchased legally. I am just as likaly to get a copy from a charity shop as I am from a torrent site.

By definition it is not theft, just copywrite infringment.

Charity

"No, I mean thieves. If a book/film/whatever is on sale at £10 and you steal it; you just stopped the creators getting their cut of that £10. If you copy it - it's the same thing. (And I'll type this slowly so that you can keep up). THE. CREATOR. DOES. NOT. GET. PAID."

What if I go and buy the book/film/whatever from a charity shop? Second hand. The creator doesn't get paid then, is that also wrong? Or what if I buy a physical item and pass it onto a friend, they then pass it onto someone else, and so forth, is that also wrong?
