Re: "consumers won't have to buy new hardware"
Yes. As long as you can mount your laptop on the moggie, this should work fine. Unfortunately, you still need a Roomba on which you can mount the moggie, so it is really turtles all the way down.

Looking at a Nexus 5 as I type this. 1080p isn't that terrible.

Plenty, but nothing that I believe auspost has the answers to.
On a side note, lots of e-commerce relies on physical package handling to some degree. Why they can't leverage their natural monopoly to turn a pretty penny there shows a real lack of imagination.
Don't mind draw.io. it does have an XML format so it can be versioned but it's more definitions of points etc. This one had a simple syntax that worked nicely with diff tools and was much quicker to create a simple diagram in it than draw.io.
Don't use them much but there is a handy little tool for drawing sequence diagrams and the like which relies on it that I'll miss.
The other ones have the humourous tag line "the place to be". Clearly a sentiment that wasn't shared by the drivers of the said vehicles who were elsewhere.
Well your auth cookie is sent in clear text every time you login here because apparently TLS is too much effort or something.
If you think password length is related to the required storage space, you're storing it wrong.
> Three out of four of these refuseniks (74 per cent) cited security as the major reason.
Well they are fundamentally correct on that. 2FA is useless if the SMS code for funds transfer is going to the same device.
And here I was imagining these devices basically did a MitM attack, forwarding the traffic to a legitimate tower so as not to inconvenience anyone beyond the privacy implications.
> it's illegal (in the UK) to send encrypted communications over the airwaves
Is it legal to broadcast the results of a long running game of heads or tails? Enquiring minds and all that.
It's lucky that Microsoft never release patches that you don't want installed I guess.
> what's that in proper units
About 20 KiloBees
Absolutely. Bee related puns are encouraged. You win one internet. Unfortunately, you immediately lost it after failing to use an apostrophe to indicate a contraction. Such behaviour must not go unpunished or society may tear itself apart at the seams.
> she landed on the F-22 to rest
She was hanging around for the F-35 JSF but exhaustion set in due to another overrun.
to get Microsoft Ireland to hire the guy? Then they could just get a warrant from a US court.
Leaving aside the more, er, questionable elements of this proposal, wouldn't the effort to validate that block chain exceed the ddos itself?
If you are visiting Australia on Census night, you are required to participate. Your accommodation provider will give you a form or details of how to complete the Census online."
True but not his IP address. Heck, you could identify me by my postcode combined with my employer's name.
They did. No doubt a good first step but it isn't that hard to circumvent. You're really just playing whack a mole.
"Earlier attempts to frustrate the website led the ABS to block all international traffic at about midday on Tuesday until midnight. But that geo-blocking mechanism ultimately failed, government cyber security adviser Alastair MacGibbon said."
I have not seen any independent evidence that they were ddos'd. By now I would have expected anonymous to come out chanting something something legion something or other. All the media reports that I have seen this morning are sourced from abs alone who after a trail of fail have a lot of self interest to hide. Keep drilling. We haven't heard the last on this.
Scale is hard; really hard. A few small assumption errors can give order of magnitude load increase. A small config file error can cause load balancers to do the wrong thing even if you have provisioned the hardware on standby (just ask aws). A small query plan error can cause additional terabytes of ram to be allocated during sign in (just ask Microsoft).
Oh, and given IBM's track record in handling government IT services, it's not that you wouldn't trust them to organise the proverbial in a brewery, you wouldn't even trust them with the RSVPs to the said event.
If El Reg couldn't see this coming then I would be changing news outlets. Blind Freddy could see that provisioning for a million people per hour isn't enough when most families will get home from work, eat dinner, kids in bed then log in. The saddest part is that because they make names compulsory, the results will be less than honest, negatively impacting public policy decisions for the next 5 years.

Actually I would say that lightening is quite a bright way to spell it.

Possibly the best researched piece of tech portrail we have seen in years. Pretty much every techo has at some point heard that line from a telephone *ahem* support attendant only moments after telling them how you have just reimaged the drive.
Awesome name: check
Logo: no. Wait, how can I take a HTTPS big seriously if it doesn't have a logo!
The linked article mentions a hearing date in the past week or so. Would be interesting to have an update to that case.
Truecrypt used to have a plausible deniability feature whereby a secondary pass code would unlock a second volume. The actual volume would not be detectable from within this volume.
Seems like something similar for android/iPhone is needed.
Shirley you are not suggesting an element of click bait....
If the rest of the world knew the sorts of 8 legged things living in our roof cavities or under the house then they would understand why we don't want to run cables.
Half an hour? Does that include unboxing the computer and plugging it in?
Relatively modest PCs can hash at "many billions per second" rates. Specifically designed hardware for bitcoin mining is measured in "many tens of billions per second".
As an example of this, combining date of birth with gender and suburb gets you an average 90% match to one person.
Maybe you can enter your surname as

So, three cartridges then.
You can mock, but you can get about a hundred thousand new printers for that.

It's between the table alias and column name. Also sometimes in the middle of numeric values.

The key words in that claim.
In a couple of million years you will have to worry about our spiders, snakes and drop bears.
Sometimes things are convenient coincidences.
Other times, it looks more like this

“You can ask for a replacement or refund if the problem with the product is major.
Replaced products must be of an identical type to the product originally supplied. Refunds should be the same amount you have already paid, provided in the same form as your original payment..”
A product or good has a major problem when:
* it has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying it if they’d known about it
* it is unsafe
* it is significantly different from the sample or description
* it doesn’t do what the business said it would, or what you asked for and can’t easily be fixed.”
If I were VW, I would be avoiding the trying a bit more mea culpa in my response rather than try to argue that line, irrespective of whether it is legally the case.
I seriously doubt that is a better idea. Unless lastpass are idiots, they aren't going to be able to decrypt your database because they won't know your master password. I'll be interested to see what the flaw is, but my guess is that it relates to a mechanism to trick it into auto populating the form on an imposter form delivered over an ad network, XCS or MitM attack.
> allow owners who so desire to disable some or all of those options if they don't like the idea that their smartphone could be remotely tracked or accessed.Accessed? OK, I grant you that this is at least technically possible. There is that tiny problem of about 2/3s of active phones can be pwned by a malicious MMS, and let's not even get into the vulnerabilities inside the baseband chips. But is at least on paper achievable if security is taken seriously.Remote tracking though? Uh do they know how a mobile phone network operates? The operator knows damn well where your phone is because your phone talks to its towers, negotiates handovers and so on. That is why your phone actually rings when your number is called. The network isn't blindly broadcasting to every tower around the world to make your phone ring on the off chance that you are there. They actively track you (technically you dob yourself in). So you can't opt out of tracking. You can minimise the number of parties who track you but not opt out totally. Oh and if the tracking worries you, it might be an idea to switch off your WiFi. Even if your iPhone randomises your MAC address, you can still be tracked by your ssid hello messages.
Be honest now. You just couldn't remember the adnim password.
Ah, my coat, thanks.
> nbn™ has also blogged that it's already considering future upgrades to Full Duplex DOCSIS
Does one perform this upgrade by starting up some new SDN appliance at the exchange or have we got some poor sod driving a Hiace and opening a cabinet every 200m?
That reminds me; my VPN subscription renewal is due.
