Anons torn over naming 'n' shaming of 17yo's gang-rape suspects

The RCMP in Nova Scotia appear not to be able to forensically track the images taken during the rape. Surely there must be some image with the Exif data showing not only the camera and therefore the phone but also the time. Seems like plods the world over would rather take the easy way and say she wanted it then regretted it so why bust some good ole boys balls over it. With some of the newer phones it would also have imprinted in the data the GPS coordinates of the pictures. So at least the one who owned the phone/camera copuld be done for taking and also distributing child pornography.

Saudi Arabian justice?

Saudi Arabia often does just that. Get the wrong outcome at a trial they'll just proceed with a new one with a different judge - you'll not have the luxury of a jury either.

Facebook fixes 'Peeping Tom' webcam bug - AFTER 5 MONTHS

It would appear that Zuckerberg's sister Randi is as graceless and charmless as he is. FFS she worked for Facebook and is not aware of it's shortcomings with respect to both privacy and security of data? Ah of course Facebook says "all your data here belong me" so it's not your privacy they are concerned with.

Australian Police say don't use Apple's iOS 6 Maps

Re: Could be interesting

Ever heard of map updates for your sat nav? Though with Google maps for the appropriate area and GPS enabled I reckon you'd be OK; not so sure about Apple products. Apple produce of the kind that come from trees are fine those emanating from China are just over-priced gizmos; Android phones from the same source are fine and a whole lot cheaper. Been using my current one for nearly 3 years now and it's not missed a beat.

Re: RFID?

So how is it possible to find the location of a mobile within a few feet without making a call to it. With sufficiently sensitive equipment it is possible to interrogate a SIM card without the phone being switched on.

Re: I will be seriously ...

Looks like my free hmamail will be working overtime. Companies get given it as a contact address and unless the filter is set to auto-forward the mail gets deleted after 24hrs. When I have finished a transaction with a company I remove any auto-forward filter & their mail never troubles me again! Leaves me in control.

I will be truly pissed if I start getting emails from all and sundry just because someone who has my email address is a twat and uses twitter & decides he should send me a twatter from his twitter account.

US said to designate Assange 'enemy' of the state

Re: Optional

Assange cannot be a traitor to the USA as he has no affiliation with that state. The US DoD and State Department would no doubt like to incarcerate him but he is a bit too high profile to be placed on one of their extraordinary rendition flights to their currently preferred destination.

Apple now most valuable company OF ALL TIME

hold2ransom
Devil

It's all a bubble!

"The Governor and Company of Merchants of Great Britain Trading to the South Seas, and other parts of America, and for Encouraging the Fishery", better known as South Sea Company had a share price valuing the company at about £162 million in 1720 which would have been approx £2224179 million in 2005. The company did not produce anything so it was a purely speculative venture. It is not for me to say whether the products of Apple Inc are to be viewed as speculatively valued as I do own any of their products as I view taxation extracted by companies to be tantamount to theft.

Liar Dice

So is this just going to prove that Mr Zuckerberg is really untrustworthy. I know I would not trust either Facebook or him with my private details. If you trust Facebook you probably trust Zuckerberg and conversley if you trust Zuckerberg you probably trust Facebook.

Linux

Muade - he for one does not get it!

Just weasel words - Open Source OS's will never fill their troughs so OS will never get a look in with either central or local government. The purveyors of the standard preferred OS (M$ & their "Gold" standard partners and also Apple) will shovel loads of dosh into the troughs in order to keep central and local government customers tied in. Sure they'll announce very good deals on up front purchases but the hidden costs are never announced. It is those hidden costs which feed the insatiable appetite of both M$ and Apple.

IT managers seem to get into the "Big Blue" syndrome but now it is mainly M$. They think users are unable to change from their precious M$ Office and god forbid allowing the use of a "new" operating system. The last to some extent I can understand as it is protecting their own jobs as they'd not have a clue how to support other OS's.
