Using a default username and password isn't hacking
It's using the system as intended.
After all, if people didn't want to share their devices, they would have changed the default password when they installed it.
I can understand why people were duped
After all, airport security has those machines that can see through clothes.
I do worry about the kind of person that thinks a free app will do the same job though.
I'm dissapointed El Reg commentards.
24 posts and no mention of how Cambridge Engineers give good head.
I'm a Simcity fan.
I've already got Simcity 4.

Is this the equivalent of a news anchor reading the directions off the auto-cue?
Ah, the perils of Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V.
Why didn't she just grab another controller and join him?
You know what they say, if you can't beat them... play co-op.
What kind of dexterity go these things have?
Could one of these robots be programmed to harvest certain objects? Maybe anything about the size of a wallet or a credit card? Could one one yank a slip of paper say, out of someone's hand?
These robots could be the next weapon in the fight against street litter.
Re:RTS games also suffered through the "lets do it in 3D" era.
Did you see what they did to Simon the Sorcerer 3? They took a great 2D adventure and turned it into a blocky 3D nightmare. For no other reason than the studio wouldn't support the game unless it was in 3D.
It's an interesting input device
Can you use it to detect a users expression of horror when they realise they've made a cataclysmic mistake?
I can see an application here for an automated undo feature :)
Well if the chips respond to damaging stimuli by repairing themselves, then I guess that zapping the chip with a laser would make it feel pain that it had to respond to by rerouting its circuits.
Holy Crap! They are torturing those chips!
Re: no man is an island
Isn't it about time that roaming charges were seen for the rip off that they are?
There is practically no real extra cost phoning home from Dover or Calais for the network operators, so why do we allow them to keep fleecing customers like this?
Learn COBOL, even if it cripples you mentally
I still have flashbacks about writing sequential files to tape.
Sometimes, late at night, I can still hear the tape flapping, and the anguished screams of someone that's just dropped a box of punch cards.
Re: There is only one thing a text editor needs
I once offered a fiver to anyone that could write a COBOL program in vi without setting off the terminal bell.
No one ever claimed it.
I have lost the ultra-violet wiping-out gadget (ask your dad)
Am I so old now that this is ancient technology?
Telephone and face-to-face support would be offered only as a "fall-back mechanism"
I've read that bit five times now, and it just seems like a big screw you to people that don't or can't use computers.
What guarantee have I got that I'll actually be able to speak to someone that can help in a timely manner?
Re: Can't ISPs detect zombified PCs?
Ok, do you want to volunteer to have your traffic profiled first?
The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
Run for the hills Cory Bernardi! We're all doomed!
Electric shocks when hit by a plasma bolt
Finally! A way to electrocute people over TCP/IP!
Re: I wonder how they tested the "will not work with a severed hand" part.
How could anyone have granted those patents?
Which can be paraphrased as "What the internet already does."
The UK Civil Service has a code governing honesty?
I wonder what it says?
And what exactly have you done to try and make the world a better place today?
