Next Steps

"We are carefully considering the European court of justice's judgment on data retention and are currently examining potential next steps."

Meaning : We are working towards finding a loophole.

NHS patient data storm: Govt lords SLAP DOWN privacy protections

Re: How long ?

One word : Apathy

I recently spoke to a "well educated" person about the care.data scam, however this person had never heard about it, and actually said that he didnt really care either way. Age of person - Late 20s.

If this is the general feeling amongst many people, we're screwed.

Re: Honey Trap?

I think you would also need control over a significant number of relay nodes, as well as exit nodes. So then in theory, you could follow the white rabbit throughout your own network (exit node > relay node > relay node > relay node > destination)

TalkTalk's YouView box gets Ab Fab reception

Quinnicus

Free eh?

I like how the definition of free has been redefined lately (NOT). A mandatory £50 installation fee to take it out the box and plug it in (which thats my bit of fun though)

so not free eh?

Now on Freeview HD: Olympic arts channel that's tough to watch

Quinnicus

Re: What Gives (Sony)

Yeah, wont be getting Netflix, is what i think your referring to. However, the TV that I bought was only released in Sept last year and I bought it in Oct last year. So far I have not been impressed at the lack of internet updates as well as sony believing that this tv is already out of date.

I also have sonys 500GB PVR box, all IPTV channels work...with a catch, only audio works and no video. making viewing 110-117 impossible.

What Gives

I have last years Sony Bravia TV (2011 NX723). I can access and watch Vision (110), CCTV (111), Sports Tonight (112), and even Racing, if i wanted it.

But when trying this channel The Space (117) it tells me that I dont have a compatible FreeviewHD device.

Umm, someones cocked up somewhere...
