I, for one, welcome our new <noun> <adverb> overlords.
Already happening I'm afraid. Some well known technical news sites based in the UK don't even use https in their comments section.
With a Mondeo, you need to find a marked car spot at B. With the others you can just use the dual purpose indicator stalk and stop your vehicle somewhere you find convenient.
I just hope they have the good sense to check the el reg forums before they waste any more money.
Yes. Methane is a particularly potent greenhouse gas.
.... where his pennies were spent?
If the alternative is FireWire then USB is definitely more secure (can't bypass OS and read all RAM directly)
Hey, I am not defending them, just pointing out the real world problem. I am sure the newer machines have some sort of counter measures (like how server class machines have alarms that record when the case is open, wouldn't be too hard to do the same when the service door was opened).
My guess is that the bean counters figured that the countermeasures would cost more to retrofit than they will lose to these sort of scams.
No, but the level of protection around the section housing the computer innards is nowhere near the safe/cash drawer.
Search on YouTube for Barnaby jack. He demonstrates a walkup attack.
It would be more convincing if their submission explicitly stated that they only sought permission to jam APs that purported to be associated with the hotel but that were not.
>Yep. I guess 'Woman Made To Prove Laptop Worked At Airport' wouldn't be as interesting a headline
Why does it matter if it works? What if it broke whist travelling? Let's say or wonderfully reliable SSD just gave up without warning and now you just see some text about missing boot devices? Are you supposed to their away your otherwise fine laptop? Are you supposed to fart around trying to sort out warranty claims whilst abroad?
Officialdom gone mad is the kindest way to put it. Time for hidden volumes when travelling to France I suppose...
Probably because you can reallocate that partition back if you were inclined to do so (just pray that you never need to reformat)
It is also because in one of those cases that is over 50% of the advertised space. A reasonable consumer expects a degree of space used by OS paraphernalia but not in that magnitude. They also expect that a 32GB device from manufacturer A holds roughly the same amount of their stuff as a 32GB device from manufacturer B.
>calling them "unintended consequences" would imply staggering stupidity on the part of managements
I have no trouble accepting the premise of that statement
>I could quite easily imagine the two current smart phone market leaders doing a Nokia/RIM
Mind you at least one of these can always fall back to selling forklifts, washing machines, HIFIs, refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, printers, cameras, air conditioners, bulldozers, CPU fans, hard drives, SSD, SD cards and a few dozen other lines. Even if they don't sell another phone ever again, they are not going to be like Nokia or RIM.

Some mouse manufacturers have started cutting costs by omitting the ALT button off their mice. Now I need a keyboard to access the menu. If I have to reach for the keyboard then I might as well just hit the Ctrl + XYZ combo needed to do the same thing.
Apple Pay works using an NFC chip in the device with touch finger-print censor.

Mobile version is all one page.
Yes it is a design flaw in the spec. It has been changed so I doubt this technique will work in 10 years time. Just needs to be practical to drop support for the older protocol versions.
Another solution is for hotel booking sites to include WiFi charges in the headline rate unless the hotel forgoes deauthing shenanigans.
A lot of focus here on pwning the server itself. Fair enough, but these machines are also fully trusted by other machines to set/reset their clocks. Could this not also make it possible to trick clients into accepting expired certs used to sign malware?
f) SONY - revenge against the internet.

They just need to enable multi hop translations. I want my conversations to sound like DVD player instruction English. Much more fun than the current can you still hear me; yes but I only see the top of your head conversations that are par for the course.
Currently on my regular train sharing a 6 person seat with one other person. Normally I just get to chose whether to stand upstairs it downstairs.
If this is what can be achieved in public transport then bring it on (uber that is, not the dickhead in martin pl)
Or swap a few letters around and call it the USS Delorean.
I wonder how many lasers can be powered with 1.21 jigawatts.
Wouldn't monitor physical disconnect and reconnect events be traceable?
>Enlighten everyone on what the best form government is?
Getting the right dictator tends to be where it comes unstuck.
If resharper is anything to go by then I completely support those sentiments.
No worries Canadia
Also some sad goodbyes. Pdfcreator used to be one of those must installs before they started bundling spyware in their installer.
Or fiddler if you are dealing with http.
There are some good reasons for electronic voting done right (most aren't).
* Detection of vote tampering
* removal of accidental donkey voting where someone changed their mind and started crossing things out rather than getting a new paper making their intention unclear
* immediate results where the numbers are close.
* sensible sized ballot paper. Our legislation limits the size and therefore with enough candidates you have real accessibility problems with readable font size.
* random order per vote so column 1 isn't hugely advantaged by donkey vote.
* Logistics in producing, transporting, storing, counting those papers.
These are not theoretical problems. In the recent election, Western Australia's senate race was very close. Last and second last at specific points were within automatic recount thresholds at numerous points and preference flows varies the overall winner. During the recount they could not find from memory about 1000 votes from one polling station. They did simulations of both possible flows and demonstrated that the result could change which in the end cost many millions of dollars in a state wide revote.
In answer to your other question. Poll booth attendance is compulsory. What you do our don't write on your ballot paper is up to you but it will be considered informal if you don't fill it out correctly (wink wink nudge nudge). Compulsory attendance is actually a good thing (hasn't always been my view). But it achieves some useful effects.
* providing a mandate to the parliament (note parliament != government).
* much harder for anyone to use stand over tactics to keep opposing populations away.
* moderates the nuts that exist at the frays of all ends of the spectrum. I know that a number of places where politics doesn't seem to be contesting ideas but rather trying to motivate half interested parties to bother to turn up. If everyone is already there, you need to focus on how your policies affect the whole constituency or you won't get a large sway.
The real amazing part is that for once the parliament seems to have thought through the problems that such a change opens up, where good intentions have unintended bad consequences. If only they now apply their newfound wisdom to the slippery slopes of days retention and media reporting of special operations,I, for one would be much happier.
Not when it comes to carbon pricing...
>Her indoors reckons it looks like an angry insect. Me? Being half Scot, I see echoes of the Saltire in that bold cross pattern slashed across the nose, especially in the blue-and-silver colour scheme that my review car rocked up in.
I would say they are channelling the Xbox controller.
It's Australian Labor Party
/which I find weird because we generally spell things "right"
African or European vacuum?
Did you get it over the air or flash it from the website download?
Mine still claims to be up to date on KitKat.
Charms may be OK** but they totally ruined the network connection status popup that used to be there.
** providing you only have one monitor.
Then my phone rang and I couldn't finish typing my sentence?
+ freaking LASERs
I'm sure that some versions mustn't have even existed. I mean one day you were using one version somewhat happily and the next you were two versions later.
So Cancel or Allow?
It is in Google's interest to return the results that their users were looking for, irrespective of whether you now regret the night you embarassed yourself. If they are simply a bunch of viagra link farms then people will change searh engines. I have used probably a dozen search engines over the past decade or so. I switched to google when its results were consistently aligned with what I was looking for. If tomorrow morning Bing does it better then I will switch again.
Even taking at face value that the information is inaccurate; it is only an assumption that the user was expecting accurate information. Would you expect reliable information from the onion? Of course not (at least I hope). The point is that you want a search engine to decide based on a short phrase and possibly some additional data (location / google+ / search history etc if available) the relevance of the possible returned results. If information is truly out of data and Google doesn't return the more up to date information then Google will lose out to its competitors; but there would surely have to be much better reasons to not go after the information source in the first place. They are going after Google for the PR. If they wanted the information gone, they would go after the hosting website(s).
It is with great curiousity that I ponder whether these guys think that China should have the right to suppress "out of date" links on Google.com?
For a thousand pounds I would expect a compressor to be in the mix.
I wouldn't trust Google then. I count 14 from just two shuttle disasters (challenger + Columbia)
Here's the thing.
The search result is already correct.
Correctness of a search engine relates to the ability to locate URLs that relate to the phrase you are searching for. They do not offer an opinion on the fitness for purpose or correctness of that information. If you search for a review of a car, the results may contain links to reviews by people who clearly have no clue, are biased towards or against a particular model or get specifications or prices wrong. That is where adults are expected to engage their brain and evaluate for themselves. If the information on this site is so bad that poor little Europe couldn't be trusted with it, then block it at the site itself.
Censoring of search results is the realm of Beijing or Moscow rather than somewhere that values free media.
I think Samsung may be drawing a bit of a long bow here by going after this argument. That said, I also believe for the most part Microsoft don't have most of these claimed patents, although they probably have some real ones now they bought Nokia...
