I'd have thought that the President would have had better security
If they skimp on security to the point where a bunch of script kiddies can crack his accounts, I wonder what the rest of their security is like?
You could probably break into the White House if you know which rock they hide the front door key under.
Necessary computer skills and intent
Hang on. Hacker == Intent?
Is having the necessary computer skills really the same as going equipped to cause damage?
I wouldn't mind getting spam at all if I was paid for it.
I think that £1 per message would do it.
Quite possibly the hardest mouse in the world.
I bet he drinks Carling Black Label
Easy Access to Parallel Computing
Nvidia's CUDA is a great introduction to parallel computing. Recently, I've been looking at CUDA to do financial calculations. A problem that lends itself very well to parallel computing, as there are a lot of calculations that don't depend on the results of others.
Rather than go through each transaction sequentially, work can be divided up and farmed out to the graphics card and the length of the task is shorter by orders of magnitude.
No User Serviceable Parts Inside
Does the PM think that Zuckerberg himself is posting each individual video?
It would be "irresponsible of Facebook to post beheading videos" if Facebook were doing that. But it's not. It's a piece of software.
It is the [b]people using the software[/b] that are the problem!
Hiring convicted hackers
Would it not make more sense to hire the ones that don't make a habit of getting caught? I'm no expert, but I'd have thought that not getting caught would be the defining characteristic that separates the skilled hackers from the regular ones.

Was she copying the Tulisa Contostavlos sex vid?
Re: So far I've avoided goatse.
Be grateful that no one has shown you lemonparty yet.
Once is careless, but three times?
Are they absolutely sure this is a mistake?
How are children still getting access to unsecured computers?
I remember a time when there was a simple way to stop children from using computers that they weren't supposed to. There was a lock on the front panel that would disable the keyboard.
No Technical Details?
For all we know Google could be selling a rock that keeps DDoS attacks away.
Had a denial of service attack? No? The rock must be working then!

"posting status updates on the content free ad network"
Now that MP's have stepped in to fix the problem
This whole thing should be cleared up nice and sharpish.
I'm sure that the Right Honourable Members of Parliament will tackle this with the usual skill and aptitude that they've displayed with every other IT related issue.
Re: Giant person-eating super-phages
When they get large enough to be visible to the naked eye, couldn't we just hit them with a baseball bat?
How many polite, competent network engineers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Both of them.
Starting a cycle of revenge is probably not the best way to settle this issue once and for all.
Before pics are useless without After pics
Agencies seek to find the needles in the haystacks
Might I suggest that they use a magnet rather than a flamethrower to find them?
Re: land-based nasties so bad?
Eat a Honeypot Ant and tell me that doesn't taste good!
Re: Anus horribilis
Surely you mean annus?
Cannabis cures cancer?
I know some people that are going to live for ever!
Yahoo articles are less annoying if you interpret each on of those ! as a "Boing!" sound.
Replacement limbs for American troops
As soon as I read that, my first thought was of that guy from Starship Troopers
Re: I take it we're talking pedos trading CP here?
No we're probably talking about kids trading their selfies with other kids.
Re: I believe this is a trap
Where's Admiral Ackbar when you need him?
Turkeys campaigning against xmas has started early
Software house would rather people bought their product rather than roll their own?
Who'd of thought it?
Re: importance of having a mobile phone in the car
Get a cheap nokia brick phone like a Nokia 5100 and keep it in the glove box. It'll hold it's charge for ages, and it will let you make emergency calls even without a sim.
George Osborne doesn't have a clue does he?
He's like a duck in a hot air balloon.
He's got no clue where he is, how he got there, or what he's going to do next.
And when this all goes to pot, we're going to get crapped on from a great height.
Nice to see Branson planning on doing something productive
Mechjeb isn't cheating!
It just makes things slightly easier....
Apple blatantly COPIES Windows
It's not copying when Apple does it.
They call it "innovation"
Well it works in Kerbal Space Program.
What took them so long?
No academic credit
What a swindle!
Intern is another word for free labour in some companies.
Some enterprising programmer will come up with a fix for it.
Many angry readers posted "highly offensive or threatening" comments
And this recent court decision is likely to generate even more.
Deleting fucking everything...
Garter is more right than they think.
Right now, I could replace half my co-workers with a hundred line QBASIC program.
We men aren't so weak willed that a flash of cleavage will cause us to go on a sex fueled rampage.
The dress was fine.
DRM is not the right solution.
As a consumer, I've always found DRM a right hassle. In the case of the BBC it's stopped me from watching things that I have a legitimate right to see.
All this will do is encourage people to find workarounds so that they can watch the content they've purchased.
That's a bit of a slap on the wrist isn't it?
I bet Hamed Shabani could pay that with the change in his pocket.
"Neelie's plan is to get rid roaming charges across Europe by forcing operators to scrape them altogether."
If they scrape them altogether, won't charges increase? They should be scrapping them!
