I'm not ok with that.
If the package is addressed to me, deliver it to me.
Don't deliver it to my neighbour, because the last time you did that they opened the package and invalidated the warranty on my new DDR3 memory.
Free USB sticks?
Thank you very much hackers :D
Re: Outing Innocent People
Lets hope they don't compromise an existing investigation. Or worse, lets hope this action by anonymous doesn't tip off the big league criminals into covering up their activities further.
All my future posts on all sites will now look like this:

They want to stamp out “vulgar content”
I for one enjoy the vulgar content from time to time!
Re: Apple and the bleeding obvious
I've noticed that a lot of products for sale on the internet have more views of the front of the product rather than the back.
As a general rule, shoppers really aren't interested in the back side of things.
Re: Atos IT workers are threatening to strike
It's worse than that. They used a scoring system based on an American system used by insurers to deny medical insurance to people. The healthcare assessments they use are designed to exclude people from being able to get the help they need.
See the summer report of 2010, Section 8
Re: ^^ What Phil said... but what matters more is ...
"However, there are *many* other factors at work in what is a maddeningly chaotic global weather system."
This. A thousand times this.
The state of the temperature of planet is something that is the result of a large number of variables and systems interacting with each other. No wonder it's taking a little time to figure out how it's going to change in the future.
Still. Nothing wrong with gathering more data and coming up with a contingency plan just in case the planet is reduced to an arid rock.
Re: A truly intelligent warhead delivery system
A truly intelligent warhead delivery system would find a way to pit it's human enemies against each other. What kind of intelligent warhead would just blow itself up?
Sounds more like some new fad exercise
Re: So these 169 inmates...
@Matt 15:09 - You can't have it both ways. Either they are criminals, which means they should be tried in a court of law, or they are prisoners of war and should have been released when the war was over.
Atos IT workers are threatening to strike
They should have threatened to strike when the government used ATOS to force the most vulnerable in our society to look for work when (by any reasonable persons definition of sick) they were unable to do so.
I for one don't care if the poor ATOS workers are suffering. They have contributed to much more harm and anxiety for the sick and disabled people who's health they were supposed to be caring for.
Re: In the 80's
The spectrum was way better than the C64! Well the 128K version was anyway.
My heating runs off a 15Kg Butane Cylinder
If this home automation app can unhook an old can and load up a new one and then fire up the pilot light, then it's well worth the money.
Re: So these 169 inmates...
" There's nothing in criminal OR military law that says you can't keep someone suspected of a crime from being locked up until you want to try them."
Of course there is! You can lock up a suspect, but eventually you have to either a) charge them with something, or b) let them go. And once you have charged a suspect with a crime, they then have (in civilised countries) the right to a fair trial. One of the things that makes a trial fair is the right to be heard within a reasonable amount of time. What exactly are they waiting for? Court rooms have been built in less time than it's taken for the USA to organise a trial.
"Who says the "war" is over?". George W Bush, that's who. Mission Accomplished.
Re: So these 169 inmates...
Thanks Matt, that's really cleared that up. Except that the articles you cited don't have any reference to the trials for the people there convicted of terrorist offences. And aren't POWs usually released after the war is over?
This is all we need. Robots that can climb stairs.
When the rise of the machines finally does happen, we wont be able to run away up stairs from our new evil overlords.
Hey! There's a whole 7/10 of the world we haven't exploited yet.
Underwater castles for everyone! :D
You're just slightly more restricted in your choice of lightsabre colours.
Re: BT vs bored 12 year olds
There are more bored 12 year olds than there are Bruce Schneiers. And the 12 year olds only have to get lucky once.
BT vs bored 12 year olds
I can't wait to see how this turns out....
In the real world, doors creak and girls fart.
Which is why we have hinge oil and vagisil.
And honestly, if you're out of the house with a phone that's down to it's last 15% of charge, then you *should* be carrying around a charging cable in your bag.
Re: land of shiny rainbows and constant blowjobs
We're a bunch of relatively smart people. I'm sure we could create a land like that if we put our minds to it.
It was obviously Skynet.
Skynet obviously took control of the rocket launch system and tried to wipe out the human race.
Unfortunately, due to an administration cock up, Skynet ended up with the launch codes for San Diegos firework arsenal instead

Do they ever? Companies that hold us in contempt with their silence are not doing themselves any favours.
Why aren't phones waterproof already?
It used to be that I could make a phone call in the rain, whydo they not cater for this use case anymore? Nowadays I don't dare try just in case a rain drop manages to find its way in side the case.
"is it just me or do some "scientists" seem to completely dismiss obvious and simple ideas for the most far fetched ones?"
How about we look at the evidence and research done on TYC before we start introducing maybe extras like unseen migratory planets? Maybe the reason that they don't suspect the obvious and simple idea of a migratory planet, because there wasn't one there to see, .
Re: A high tech hum?
I'd imagine a device like this would make a satisfying noise like an unlicensed nuclear accelerator being fired up.

Google's huge lobbying influence over UK policy makers
In other words, bribery.
Frigging software patents.
"HTC was infringing on a patent that allows folks to isolate data such as phone numbers in emails and then call the number."
I didn't think that you were allowed to patent the bleedin' obvious!

Re: Computer misuse - EULA
"Possibly section 3 as well, but that may depend on the EULA"
I don't think that EULAs can be used to absolve a person of criminal responsibility.
I can try adding a clause in the next bit of software I write to give me the power to break into the users home and mess up their stuff, but I don't think it will stand up in a court of law when I'm tried for breaking and entering.
These guys can wait a very long time under their bridges before they sue...
No... wait... That's *Patient* Trolls.
