Can we just not settle on "shim" or "sher"?
That program showed promise but promptly went downhill when it stopped corporate bashing imo.
I concur, even simple apps like "light" or "mirror" want to know everything which is why I don't install them or use "App ops" to remove said permissions.
I do think google needs to have some sort of policy surrounding permissions.
I would have thought banana ketchup but looks tasty all the same.
In times of austerity the wise man uses money to change public opinion.
What a load of rubbish. I for one have never seen any animals in the que at my local chippy.
You're obviously all holding them wrong.
I set myself up a mail server at home using dovecot/postfix and it's been running quite well however I'm starting to get requests from amazonaws, rejected of course but should I be concerned?
Even most human brains have trouble detecting sarcasm.
Pros: Easy to use, waterproof, stylish, lots of fun.
Cons: Low resolution, Useless unless reporting on a zoo.
They took out the updating code I would presume.
So the combination is... one, two, three, four, five? That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard in my life! That's the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!
To be fair you can't polish a turd
However you can roll it in glitter...
I don't mind when the cloud is down, makes it a nice sunny day
stop hating obama
he won the nobel peace prize in 2009 for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples"
he has brought so much peace (not killing people with drones...) to the world it fills my heart with joy
I like art, it can inspire and invoke emotion and thought.
Why would you want to take it and keep it for yourself? Guessing that wasn't what the artist had in mind when painting it...
It's a racist, bigoted pile of stinking gutter snipe journalism that's so up on it's own high horse, the horse has been replaced by a giraffe that just took a shit which proceeded to turn into tomorrows edition.
That's my opinion anyway.
I thought that was a kids tv show from my youth?
Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me Vaz
You say cow I say horse...
There's a correlation between shark attacks and ice cream sales.
Did they take into account cocoa content and composition as well? Chocolate in one country is not the same as another.
it has ditch in it's name, what more can I say?
Infographics - for wankers that have no grasp or concept not only of numbers but how those numbers can be used to tell whatever you want them to.
Just what does the NSA thinks or indeed Snowden actually has?
He obviously had full access to all files and they could have played this very different by claiming he was a spy and doing a swap with Russia or China as they have done before.
I also note that it was reported that he has 1000's of documents.
They are probably going to phase out disks anyway or make them more expensive than downloads
By giving back ability to share disks they took away ability to trade/sell downloaded games
DRM sucks but if this is the outcome would you not want at least some ability to trade/sell your games?
I'm not American but if I was I would class him as a patriot. (I'm British I don't use such terminology)
However telling the Chinese that America is monitoring their citizens could be construed by some simple minded folk as traitorous. If you were to ask why then look no further than the perpetual state of fear of "the enemy" whoever that might be at the time.
Though I am getting a bit annoyed at "the snowden show", which begs the question why focus on the person and not the reason, I do get the feeling that the mainstream press do this all the time.
Interesting take on it.
What's next? take down the online Galápagos boat timetables
add pan pipes and your onto a winner, ambient mothball vol.1
apparently refueling, surprised it couldn't hold enough fuel to get from Austria to Bolivia though
had it on in background for a chuckle, dropped from 32000 to 2800 and falling...
indeed, I'm sure they had the same attitude in Egypt didn't turn out too well there, twice...
it just grates when the proof comes out and not one country is willing to do anything or say anything (truthful) about it.
Snowden will get his asylum I think, unless America really control it's citizens that much that there wouldn't be uproar when they try to try him? especially after they broke their own 4th amendment on their own people.
Man of Steal?
can anyone on this website cook?
Ubuntu, whilst a toy for most, is wank, there, I said it, please feel free to disagree
mint is the most rubbish spice ever invented, in case you don't know it will cool down curries
why would anyone want to do such an abominable action?
ofc and he won't be made to be one either....
message your mother saying you are addicted to crack and a secret gay
message your ex claiming to have aids
message a friend admitting you watch big brother
post a status proclaiming your love of nickelback and a photoshopped image of account holder with the lead singer
I would be mortified if anyone proclaimed I loved nickelback, also is "addicted to crack and a secret gay" not a contradiction?
Anonymouse you mean?
Free Nelson Mandela (though this is based on what year it is)
as with arseange why make it about the whistleblower as opposed the blown whistle?
Fugitive US whistleblower Edward Snowden is still in the transit area at Moscow airport, Russia's President Vladimir Putin has confirmed.
When did Russian presidents make statements about individual extradition requests?
You make some very good points.
Why not create a political party? Why not run for office.
I would love to, however the press is already best buddies with the political elite so regardless of the manifesto I would be written off as a racist or an Antisocialists loon, futurama puts it best with Jack Johnson and John Jackson, one of the few nuggets in the media that actually point out the obvious.
he's a mum? mum's go to iceland
has anyone else noticed the use of past tense in the media?
His leaks revealed that US agencies had systematically gathered vast amounts of phone and web data. (had)
Mr Snowden has also alleged that US intelligence had been hacking into Chinese computer networks. (had again)
GCHQ tapped fibre-optic cables for data, says newspaper (tapped is again past tense for the headline)
So glad they have now stopped, can take my tin foil hat off.....
I would say it should read
Nicole Wong to right wrongs on rights wrongs?
I also sell seashells at the seashore and have been known to chuck wood...
Beer because it nearly that time
thanks for one of the most informative article comment posts ever
my take on this, is that the more you add, i.e. complicate a system then the more it can fuck up
maybe this could be the future (it's probably patented by apple to be fair)
Why not simplify it all to make it foolproof "going forward"?
What are nuclear plants anyway? tumbleweed???
Well if the NSA want to see me sat here wearing my tinfoil hat in my y-fronts,vest, smoking jacket and bubble pipe eating scotch eggs whilst looking at pi porn (projects and idea for the raspberry) then they can do so
Seriously though, I'm pretty sure if they were using your microphone and camera that somebody and I have thought about doing this myself for fun, would have picked it up with packet inspection in the same way a certain android feature got caught out... a la Carrier IQ...
Lets look at the model that is the internet
device with software/os > company providing software, service or connection to said internet
Do you think google or any of the other companies don't record your information because your using open source? like it's some kind of magical invisibility cloak.
Don't get me wrong I like open source but to even suggest that is naive in the extreme.
Someones been watching brass eye I see...
I would love to see chris morris take on this one though a better quote imo would be
Bollocks, I'm a liability! I am the Invisible Jihadi! They seek him here, they seek him there, but here's not there, he's blowing up your slag sister!
Invisible? Right. Like the time you got on the local news for baking a Twin Towers cake and leaving it at the synagogue on 9/11?
That is part of the plan! Hide in plain sight, you mug!
To be fair though, we can debate the whats, the whys, the who, the wherefores etc... No point, they have the keys to the kingdom now (and have had for a long time)
My question would be, what are they going to do with it?
What? are they building a Jodie Foster?
would boomerangs be classed as reusable drones?
I can see it now, "The boomerang wars", Australia conquers the planet in a fosters fueled attack that caught everyone by surprise...
I for one would welcome our Australian overlords, however the fosters is another matter
