...and the award
for the most torturous headline goes to...
One of the many reasons...
...I never bought into cloud storage.
The problem with Thermonuclear war..
..is that it usually destroys what is being fought over.
Nothing I ever purchased..
..from WD lasted well - looks like the trend continues.
They deserve each other
Shitty Software corporate, meet shitty Banking corporate.
'Inner Mongolia Baotou Steel Rare Earth Hi-Tech Company'
Just an aside here, but the Chinese-to English naming conventions/translations always tickle me. There used to be a shop not far from where I lived called the "Super Excellence Best Bakery". Love it.
Darwin Award anyone?
"Hmmm... according to my iPhone, there's an approaching....."
screeEEECH - SPLAT!
This is newsworthy?
(sigh) Oh dear.
"Where would you put your money?"
"America - Fuck Yeah!"
How else was it going to go? I'm not a fan of either side, but I wouldn't be upset if Kim & his mates trounced the Feds on this one
This wouldn't have been a problem...
... if the fruity founder had been named Steve Jubs.
Fuck the moneymen
they're not happy unless they're gaming something.
Are these pricks STILL at it!?
As if his ego wasn't big enough already.
can't live with 'em ... pass the beer nuts.
Looks like a who's who gallery...
...of shameless narcissism, considering the occasion.
'...Google's mantra is "don't be evil"...'
Ya gotta love this kind of Corporate PR sloganeering. </sarc>
"...billing structure seems slippery at best..."
Sounds like they're perfect for each other, then.
If you're banking on Hollywood for substance...
Schmidt buys his own shit.
Time for that psych. evaluation.
The only one?
Has any enterprising techie/hacker discovered this in any other network capable tv's - Panasonic, Sony etc. Just curious to know if I need to unplug.
"We work hard to get privacy right at Google"
...and even harder at this kind of P.R. arse-gravy, apparently.
Facebook may want to think again after this little incident -
All things considered,
...I think they got off rather lightly. Name slinging is fun for a while, but in this case I think sticks & stones, up close & personal, would be much more satisfying.
This is just tired now.
Move on folks, nothing to see here.
Just for fun...
• an indistinct or billowing mass, esp. of smoke or dust.
• a state or cause of gloom, suspicion, trouble, or worry.
• make or become less clear or transparent.
• place under suspicion or cast doubt upon.
"The steps that the organization was willing to do without good judgment to pursue its mission and potentially violate people's privacy, it's not OK."
In other words - "Hands off, that's our job!"
First rule of listening to Politicians -
Don't believe a word they say.
The last iMac was thinner - then came the iPad mini - now the iPad air. Don't despair folks, Apple is still at the cutting edge of innovation - they've found a way of selling less kit for your buck. The ultimate in marketing hubris would be the 'iZilch™ - it IS thin air' </sarc>
P.S. - I do own & use a small selection of Apple kit on a daily basis, FYI.
"free content ad network"
free of content, surely!
...it gives "Tech Wizz' a whole new meaning.
"Activist investor" Carl Icahn
Reads better for me as "Parasitic shyster"
What do you call 500 Lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
A: A good start.
it really doesn't matter - If someone can make it, you can bet someone can break it.
Is there a comparative study for fraudulent traffic on the 'normal' interwebs? I'm betting the percentages will be very similar.
In other news...
Chirgwin bins intrinsic read-ins like yesterdays dim-sims - too many gins?
"The damage, on a scale of 1 to 10, is a 12."
One better than Spinal Tap, innit?
Next on The Reg - Will Nigel Tufnel go for 13?
Are you sure...
that wasn't 'upstart'?
This guy sounds like one of the more lowbrow niches in advertising - a bad infomercial.
Danger already present
"...the only things disclosed are what the public should know but that does not place any person in danger"
Noble & wise - also a little naive.
Factually, people have already been placed in danger - the ones who perpetuate this secret world skullduggery, and I'm guessing they won't exhibit the same moral fibre in their efforts to perpetuate it, danger being part & practice of their stock-in-trade. I'm hoping Snowden has taken multiple precautions with the distribution & stewardship of the remaining info.
If you're stupid enough to instagram your expensive stuff for all to view, expect shit to happen. No sympathy here.
Not sure how to read this
Honestly - in the turgid wake of US
sensationalism current affairs, I'm not sure this hasn't been injected as part of a well orchestrated smear campaign by the powers-that-be, or that these statements haven't been at least partially coerced. As genuine as his/her inclinations may be, the transition from 'national security threat' to "military criminal' to 'transgender attention-seeking nut job' reads like a badly directed Hollywood b movie for me as, once again, the thread of original concern is obfuscated in the public media.
Amazon cloud, iCloud, Google and now Nasdaq - what's with the clusterf#*k of major tech infrastructure glitches lately?
Where's the fun in that?
I reckon this will be about as popular amongst men as a self drinking beer. Stop the madness now!!
Too big to ... ooops!
Re: Small correction
Journalistic typo perhaps - that could read as 'free-of-content'.
Corporatism & Greed.
This has nothing to do do with equality in work or any of the regularly touted 'climb the ladder of success' blurb - this type of behavoiur has no gender boundary, it is simply learned & passed on to the next individual with an over inflated sense of entitlement. It's pathological, it's inequitable, and occasionally shows it's aberrance in public with snafu's like this for all to see. Jump on them at every observance, folks.
It's Sky -
What did you expect?
Horses for courses
I set up my Gmail account to handle spam & unwanted email - so anything I enquire of online that I think may be remotely spammy or gratuitous gets that address. Just sayin'.
