I'd totally buy one if I had a TV
"Browsing history could be matched with interests in categories like technology, sports and cooking"
Yeah.... My browsing history doesn't really cover categories like that. Who knows what kind of stuff it would recommend with El Reg in my browsing history.
You click on one dodgy video on YouTube and suddenly you're getting all sorts of crap "Recommended for you" that you don't want. I fully expect this technology to function in the same way.
Please put down your weapon.
You have 20 seconds to comply.
Always nice to see Anon doing something useful
Now if they could only do something about Justin Beeber!
Just like those godless commie Russians used to have!
Children are getting far more access to pornography
Then stop allowing your children to access pornography.
If children were getting far more access to cars, you wouldn't ban cars. You'd remind parents to keep the keys safe.
It injects adverts directly into your eyeballs
Just like this liquid gets injected into this egg.
It wont need to be leaked.
I'm sure that all that information is passed along to the Pedofinder General.
It's like an opt-in internet sex offenders register
Cameron's got a list,
He's checking it twice,
He's going to find out who's naughty, and naughty,
Cameron's come to pilfer your porn.

"40,632 naughty flicks across the Atlantic every second"
What that in HD porn movies?
A learning network?
That can reprogram itself? I can't see that going wrong at all....
Re: I had nothing to hide!
The refrain of flashers everywhere!
Jerome Segura, came across the scam via a Bing Images search for Taylor Swift.
Yeah, that's what I'd tell my employer too if I got caught doing an image search for Taylor Swift!
Now to look for images of Taylor Momsen...
Re: Dammit Falanx!
You made me learn something!
On a Friday as well!
What if you don't have fingerprints?
Let's say you've been using a lathe or something and all your fingerprints have rubbed off? How do you unlock your phone then?
Re: What exactly is those artists problem?
Maybe with the abundance of music that artists are producing now, music isn't worth what it used to be.
What exactly is those artists problem?
They hate it when people pirate their music and they don't get paid.
They hate it when people legitimately stream their music and they do get paid.
Assembled in USA
This really caught my eye. Is this a business decision? Or an attempt to avoid all the flak that Apple received over their device manufacturers slave-like labour conditions?
I still read it with an exclamation point after every word.
Advertisers need to get their own house in order.
It's hardly an industry of great reputation when I'm constantly getting bombarded with "Earn MegaBucks Working for Google!", "Find out the one easy tip that's got $INDUSTRY fuming!", and "Get your Russian mail order bride now!".
Once advertisers stop peddling counterfeit goods, dodgy pills, lies and pyramid schemes, then they might be in a position to talk.
He has to be trolling.
I refuse to believe that any reasonable person expects the manufacturer of a bit of software to be responsible for doing exactly what they told it to do!
Those could be dangerous in the wrong third party hands!
Amy! For the love of god keep pedaling!
Mines the one with the Futurama dvds in the pocket.
Re: They're gonna enjoy looking through my emails
Ditto for me too. But I still wouldn't want anyone going through my inbox.
Pirates to the rescue yet again!
Privacy for everyone!
Re: shame the spec is always lacking.
The spec is: A rugged smartphone.
From reading the article, it seems like they nailed it.
No NFC reader?
They missed a trick there. This would be a great device for workers to use to check out stock and such.
Belgium, one of the first countries to introduce a patent box scheme
Should have patented it :D
Dear UK Government
Please could you spend my tax money on people that can actually do the job they are hired to do?
New rocket to be called the Ariane 6
The cynical part of me is wondering how long the naming committee took to come up with that...
An essential instrument in the hackers toolkit for attacking one of the least secure parts of the system.
I really don't want tailored ads targeting me
Judging by my Google search history, I'm going to be seeing porn everywhere I go....
Re: What's the proper way to put out a lithium fire?
Awesome :) El Reg really is an education sometimes. Also, see the comment way way above this one about water inhibiting the thermal runaway.
What's the proper way to put out a lithium fire?
I am not a chemist, but I remember from school that water and lithium is generally a bad combination. Is water really the safest way to put out a battery fire?
Re: 'Church of Sarcasm'
Oh yeah! That sounds like a really good idea!
His family says that the young man has been assaulted in jail multiple times
It's bad enough that he's been jailed for a boneheaded facebook comment, and now this?
Is this the American penal system at work? Is he being assaulted by the inmates or the wardens?
Re: Sex Slave Robots FTW!
How about if I were to build a robot that could consent to and even enjoy being a sex slave? Would that satisfy you?
Some have been jailed and others have lost their homes and businesses
If it can be shown that those bugs are directly responsible for sending innocent people to jail, I think the Post Office are going to have a very very big legal bill on their hands.
Can't they have a word with the Israelis?
Their Iron Dome seems to work pretty well.
Re: I wonder what the criminals were thinking.
They were probably thinking, "Woah, this is easy... Nintendo have obviously not heard of Intrusion detection."
Re: vertical landing
Vertical landing would be a boon if you were thinking of landing your rocket on a planet or moon with little or no atmosphere.
Re: Where's the magazine rack
You know what? A pot plant would really spruce that place up a bit.
Ich bin eine Shitstorm!
Sie müssen die Deutschen lieben! :D
(lieben die Deutschen? I can never remember where german verbs are supposed to go)
Time for a little less bark and a little more bite
Google isn't going to take data protection seriously until the Information Commissioner's Office does.
Oh that's cute!
An artist trying to be sciencey :D
There are many actual artists that use scientific principles in the creation of their work.
Katie Patterson would do well to study their attempts.
We are recommending you to change your password
I'm not sure which is worse. Screwing up a service that customers have paid for, or the terrible grammar.
All the kings horses and all the kings men
Couldn't put that rocket back together again.
Re: It's the users who are the problem.
Yeah, but you try telling them that!
Sounds like some kind of two way telescreen.

- 14 antivirus apps found to have security problems
