Vodafone: Dear customers. We're sorry we killed your Demon

unwarranted triumphalism

Entitlement Syndrome

"Vodafone should accept ongoing responsibility for the Demon domain names that underpin those identities."

Why should they?

DoJ preps criminal charges for VW over dieselgate

unwarranted triumphalism

Double-dealing from treehuggers

1. Enact emissions controls that are impossible to comply with

2. Fine manufacturers for complying with them

Surface Book nightmare: Microsoft won't fix 'Sleep of Death' bug

unwarranted triumphalism

Re: Still copying Apple

Samsung Kies regularly provoked kernel panics on mine. Got rid of the Mac and got a PC instead, problem solved.

Miniature car maker drops massive malware

unwarranted triumphalism

Adblockers bad

'Segura reported last month that more than 400 malicious advertisements were shipped through pwned ad network AdsTerra in two weeks.

Those ads dropped the hugely successful Magnitude exploit kit'

But... I've been told that adbockers are bad for the internet.

Re: But... but... they did it too...!

I would.

The Mirror publishing that is equally reprehensible.

But it still doesn't change what the Mail published, does it?

7 million Apple Watches just buried the competition – Canalys

unwarranted triumphalism

Re: Now this IS interesting

> TAG, however, is a proper premium manufacturer

Like when they bought an existing chrono movement from Seiko, put their own name on it and pretended that it was one of theirs (Cal 1887)?

Like when they put the ETA 2824 movement in a watch costing nearly £2000?

Sounds like a 'proper premium manufacturer' to me.

Shipped != sold

I wonder how many unsold ones are cluttering up the supply chain then? Because it looks like being yet another iFailure™ just like the iPhone 5C.

Photographer hassled by Port of Tyne for filming a sign on a wall

unwarranted triumphalism

Re: @unwarranted irrelevance: In other words...

Of course, only a 'narrow-minded unthinking twerp' could possibly object to their privacy being invaded by arrogant and uncaring photogs.

And they wonder why people have such a low opinion of them... I can't think why...

Re: @unwarranted irrelevance: In other words...

It's good to know that you find yourself so amusing.

But despite your rather feeble attempt at an insult, concern for one's privacy is not 'being paranoid'.

Re: @unwarranted irrelevance: In other words...

So it would be OK if I were to stand on the pavement outside your house and take pictures?

Somehow I doubt you would have quite the same laissez-faire attitude.

Microsoft’s Get Windows 10 nagware shows signs of sentience

unwarranted triumphalism

That's a nice OS you have there, Microsoft

It would be a shame if someone were to replace it with this Ubuntu install I just happen to have burnt to a DVD.

Maybe that's what MS want, though.

CPS fined £200k over theft of laptops holding 'sensitive interviews'

unwarranted triumphalism

What in the actual s--- was going on here?

During my work with a private company associated with the criminal justice system I have been assured that if I allow so much as 1 bit of data to escape I will be executed on the spot.

But the CPS allow this to happen and get a slap?

Goodbye public sector clients, I've had it with you. The next offer for private-sector only work will be accepted without hesitation.

Volkswagen enlarges emissions scandal probe: 'Millions' more cars may have cheated

unwarranted triumphalism

And suddenly, for some unknown reason, motorists are concerned about pollution...?

Maybe they should sue.

Because of all that pollution they're creating.

Which must be someone else's fault.

Nice story...

Except that no one has actually made any such claim. Better luck with the audiophile-bashing next time.

I know that you'll (probably) get something right eventually, even if it's just by chance.

MYSTERY RADIO SIGNAL picked up from BEYOND our GALAXY

So they've just resorted to falsifying data now?

Sad, but somewhat predictable. No wonder there is no longer any interest in the wasteful and pointless space programme.

Anonymous vows to avenge Charlie Hebdo massacre by blitzing jihadist sites

unwarranted triumphalism

This is going well...

Just the usual mud-slinging I see. No real attempt at any substantive debate.

Exactly what I would expect from a bunch of leftie secularist bigots though.
