Windows 10 will now automatically download and install on PCs

rtb61

How can an operating system with a build in key logger ever be considered more secure. In fact everything required to turn your computer into a privacy invasive bot controlled by someone else is built right into the OS. Don't need to install any trojan ware at all under Windows anal probe 10, you just need to break in once, redirect the links and you are done.

The whole idea is utter insanity and a solid indication that it is well and truly beyond time to abandon doing any business at all with M$.

USA streamlines visa for visiting Australian tech workers

rtb61

EH, no. Quite simply the US is quietly trying to drive a greater population exchange between the US and Australia because of this http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Nuclear-fuel-cycle/Uranium-Resources/Supply-of-Uranium/ and of course because of tens of thousands of kilometres of undeveloped beach front which will tolerate becoming underwater front much more readily (I mean to say, who wants to holiday at a tropical location high rise structures collapsing and leaving rubble all over the place or ghostly shells still standing, habitats of fish on the lowest level and the homeless on higher levels.

Odd thing happens in this, right wing Australians tend to drift to the US and left wing Americans tend to drift to Australia (right wingers also come from the US to Australia but if you dig into things, you find they leave after a while, they dislike being snubbed for demanding young Australians should get paid less and that being an overt bible basher demanded everyone worship their way also receives short shrift).

Overall this is still a major push for population exchange, not so much from the Australian government perspective but very, very much so from the US government perspective.

Layoffs! Lawsuits! Losses! ... Yahoo! is! in! an! L! of! a! mess!

When you get an M&M to run you business don't be surprised when you get this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q33drZUXSzY. I bet someone's business cred will go all melty but sure as fuck, some other idiot will hire it. So will this M&M get a gold coat, the golden parachute as she wanders off into the sunset with the jobs of thousands of yahooers, you betcha, feel sorry for all the rest though and the idiots that hired it, you bet they'll get the same gold plated coating on the way out.

Google has to be laughing up there sleeves at this, a reminder the M&M did not just leave but was demoted and was facing more, as a noodge out of the door(biggest skill, taking credit for other people's work, a skill she attempted to set in place from day one at Yahoo by forcing all staff back into the office so she could listen in).

SONY HACK WAS WAR says FBI, and 'we're still struggling to hire talent'

rtb61

Re: War.

Seriously WTF? Google called email postcards, which any one in any stage of the data link can read by just flipping them over, hence no one had a right to expectations of privacy when google blatantly pries into, what it calls postcards http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2013/aug/14/google-gmail-users-privacy-email-lawsuit.

So every ISP including the wholesalers can pry into and collate every email, so the reality is what they got from Sony's email servers is exactly what a whole bunch of players (keeping some secrets and making threats with others) did via the communications infrastructure, all those emails, which Google declared to be postcards and incidentally got away with it.

FBI fucking call this an act of war, fuck the FBI, those mercenary bastards, trying to promote conflict, murder and mayhem (Fucking Bloody Idiots indeed and in word). If that is the case, why haven't the world government's declared war on google, why haven't the mass arrests occurred, where are the death penalties for googles mass act of war, massively prying into people's email (M$ and Yahoo also massively indulge in this apparent act of hostilities).

UK govt right to outsource everything 15 years ago – civil service boss

rtb61

Here is how the outsourcing bubble works. You have an annual budget for IT and when it is internal it is an annual sum. When you outsource it, you can pick the cycle to outsource and create the illusion of saving by multiplying the low point in the cycle by 12, true the internal spending was still lower and that was with carrying over needy asset costs from higher cycles but you had the higher cycles added in, rather than a lower cycle multiple by 12 to create a fantasy annual budget.

So they knowingly lied for kick backs, you can not make those mistakes by accident, all a straight up lie for kick backs. Everyone in governments around the world were doing it because everyone around the world was being bribed, from corrupt politicians to corrupt political appointees they were feeding the beast who was paying them, corrupt corporations.

Now they have chaos, so temporally rebuilding internal system to fix things, only temporarily of course and once fixed, bam, straight back to corruption and outsourcing. There is also a second item in the agenda, a secret one. They are having huge problem recruiting for IT in 'lack of' intelligence services, the professionally paranoid because face it, who wants to be a great big privacy invasive dick (there are a few of course but as a routine they can never be trusted with anything), not have one mind you (in fact the opposite is far more likely the reality, hence the need to spy on everyone else's 'er' business), just be a knob head prying into everyone's private lives whilst being totally spied on yourself (when you are professionally paranoid, no one trusts any one).

So employed in one section of the civil service and transferred to another, take it or quite and have your loyalties questioned and you status as free citizen challenged.

That one weird trick fails: Google binned 780 million ads last year

rtb61

Uphold The Law

One would hope that not only is Google cracking down on fraudulent advertisements, they have created a relevant to each countries communications authority liaison office, to pass on the collated evidence so that the relevant authorities can pursue prosecution.

Google might still think that the cost world wide would be far to high, millions of dollars (proper collation and legal presentation of evidence maintaining a quality chain for evidence for further investigation) but that investment will result in significant reductions of cost associated with finding and removing those bad players, a huge problem would rapidly shrink to a minor problem because repeat offenders don't get no network access in prison.

Australia and America working on global no-state-hacking pact

rtb61

Re: Don't be fooled

Malcolm Turnbull is loyal though, no question about that. It was pretty obvious and odious that Toxic Tony was the US governments choice to ensure more US forces in australia because http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Nuclear-fuel-cycle/Uranium-Resources/Supply-of-Uranium/ of the shift to Uranium and Australia has 7 times as much Uranium as the US and it gets worse more than thirty times as much high value ores (high concentrations) and instead of being a benefit to Australians that is instead a huge threat.

Malcolm publicly made the Uncle Tom invite him three times as Malcolm pretended to not hear him as public payback for Toxic Tony and the US governments clear intent with forcing more US troops in Australia on a full time basis (mind you fully combat ready rapid deployment force on rotation thousands of kilometres away from anything worth whole except of course Australia high value uranium ores, more than thirty times greater than US reserves).

So yeah, the Australian government and it's security forces are pretty sick of being hacked by the US, especially as those Australian security forces are aware of why and especially because of the US horrible preference for autocratic governments to suppress the local populace where resources reach national security significance for the US government.)

GCHQ spies quashed this phone encryption because it was too good against snoopers

rtb61

Make no mistake their interest in software is a lie, they want to capture the hardware side, so that can grab info before it is encrypted, it is far faster and more reliable and that means getting into bios or cpus or the bus or the chipset.

Foreign manufacturers delivering to foreign governments disrupt this, however secret treaties make it possible again. Likely the most nefarious secrets are within NATO, a treaty that somehow is morphing into an over government, a government ruling other governments, pushing further and further in cyber security or is that insecurity and all areas of border control.

They are looking to punch permanent holes in hardware and seeking to force the use of that broken hardware by keeping unbroken hardware off the market (older computers running older software could become considerably more valuable over time).

Waving Microsoft's Windows 10 stick won't help Intel's Gen 6 core

rtb61

Re: Nonsense

The innovation people are waiting for voice and nothing more. Bit slow for skilled users but quite simply hugely better for unskilled users. What business wants an OS that pries into the activity of it's employees. Consider those activities are often high value proprietary secrets, that can be readily sold to competitors. The whole idea is sheer insanity, M$ is pushing one thing after another to try to force Windows anal probe 10 on people who simply do not want.

They are going to force an upgrade cycle, not the one they want but an industry wide cross grade. Windows 8 dickish enough, they had to got one step further and it will cost them dearly. There response, fuck you customers, you do not choose, M$ chooses and they seem intent to break system that do not update on purpose to force a hugely perverted privacy invasive update and insider trading nightmare for businesses.

Cat fight: Watch out YouTube, here comes Facebook

rtb61

Youtube needs to tidy up and remove dud content, it annoys viewers and wastes bandwidth. Simply let viewers start blocking undesirable uploaders, those whose only capability is producing a catchy title with shitty content.

Enough blocks and simply drop the uploader and their content, tidy stuff up, get end users to better user generated content and registered because that registration has real value, Registered users are of far greater value than anonymous users and there must be value for them to register, the value of avoiding crappy up loaders who waste storage space and bandwidth (worst examples, those advertising content sites with 90 minute long fixed frame images, a huge waste of storage).

Start cleaning things up and likely Youtube could halve storage requirements, way too many fixed frame pictures pretending to be video. So registered user generated filtering to reduce wasted storage and bandwidth in order to increase profitability and retain viewers with less annoying content driving them away.

Should also analyse for repeated content and only store it once with links to it for other users (Megaupload did a good job of this and it was largely automated).

Women account for just one fifth of the EU’s 8m IT jobs

rtb61

Re: none issue

You really do not get it. IT is a great field for introvert computer geeks, for everyone else not so much. Biology plays a huge role ie there is a world of difference between making a deposit and having to carry that result of the data extraction from the deposit and it's conjunction with a living data repository, for nine months and then providing additional sustenance and data through to self sustenance.

This produces in the majority inherently different traits, logical genetic traits, ignoring those is stupid. Even in university the difference is profound, spend time in the psychology area of the schools and you are exposed to the intense vagaries of many emotions being shared and expressed, an intense cacophonous interaction of human psyche's.

In contrast got to the IT areas of a university and it because a place of peace and calm, only intermittently interrupted by first year 'this a computer' students. The difference is huge and one kind of student is attracted to one environment (those logically more suited to the intense socio emotional interactions with children) and the other environment suits those who simply do not need to socialise as much, who in fact tend to avoid intense social interactions.

Such is life, of two sexes, one the sacrificial donor and the other the carrier and rearer (whether it be a bug or fish or mammal, one sacrifices and the other nurtures and those different roles produce different genetic outcomes to support those roles, in the majority).

Spare a reserved cloud instance, gov? Microsoft's $1bn, 70k charity sales pitch

rtb61

Re: And after three years....

It ain't free if it doesn't stay free, it is just an addictive dependency. So how much does M$ spend on advertising, surely by your definition giving that money to TV stations, Radio stations, magazines, web sites, why that is all free gifts and any advertising or promotion they do is purely by accident.

Basically M$ are being dick douche bags by invading everyone's privacy and they want charity organisations to sell their souls to advertise for M$, along with selling our privacy (every donor record passed straight to M$).

M$ quite simply can not in any way shape of form be trusted and as such any organisations that crawl in bed with M$ are going to have to expect their reputations to be used and abused by M$, see all those organisations trust M$, so you should just bend over and take the probe.

Image the EFF https://www.eff.org/ taking that not so free money, all they have to do is sell out our privacy. Those charities are paying a price, paying with their reputation and our privacy, is that a price worth paying?

Forget the drones, Amazon preps its own cargo container ship operation out of China

rtb61

For a start forget the marketing Amazon was never meant to be a retail company, they are a logistics company. Ideally they want to warehouse for manufacturers and then directly deliver the goods to customers. So all they are doing is being a logistics company which now is further extending into shipping and transport. Why are they doing this, because the other logistics companies who are asleep at the helm, with regard to retailing for direct deliveries to customers, already have transport and shipping arms.

So the question is whether or not the other logistics companies will wake up before it is too late and create their own internet retail arm to feed into their logistics, shipping and transport arms.

Star Wars Battlefront: Is this the shooter you’re looking for?

rtb61

Episode Driven

Basically the whole game is going to be a scam, with them planning to sell piece after piece of the game for a total price up around the $1000 mark, with the excuse 'but it's multiplayer, that's why you have to pay full price for add ons, they are 'er' other games'.

Basically what is being offered up in not Battlefront at all, you'll have to pay by instalments to get it in instalments. They have screwed up though, in not offering up enough and blame, they have now lost the whole $1000 scam because people are giving up on battlefront already.

You ain't nothing but a porn dog, prying all the time: Cyber-hound sniffs out hard drives for cops

rtb61

Re: Sounds Expensive

My thought was why sniff out hard disk drives, hackers can hide everything they could ever want or need on a tiny micro SD card and use a usb card reader. Of course I wasn't thinking like those 'others' and how much data they want to create, share and store and they use external hard disk drives rather than micro sd to hide stuff.

Not that I haven't shifted a bunch of DVDs to hdisk but I don't hide those hdisks. When it comes to hidden micro SD good luck to them trying to find them, especially the ones that don't exist (demolish a house piece by piece and examine wreckage?).

Kiwi judge rules Kim Dotcom can be extradited to USA

rtb61

Based upon my fron space, what is must be taken into account is will he get a fair trial in the US, based upon what has happened to date, the chances of that happening are zero, also US law does not treat foreigners equally to US citizens in court or in detention, they are treated more like animals, rather than human beings.

The US has made a real mess of all this and publicly treated New Zealand like lambs ready to have their hind legs shoved in the front of US gumboots and ready to be ridden. The New Zealand governments behaviour has been quite nauseating, reality is, if they believe a prosecution should occur than the New Zealand government should do it.

Foreigners do not get justice in US courts, they get rail roaded, abused, threats of infinite sentences, tortured, basically prosecution as persecution. Most Western countries should seriously block extradition to the US for non-US citizens.

Windows for Warships? Not on our new aircraft carriers, says MoD

rtb61

Most likely a switch to FOSS. Problem is that might not be to well received for use on a killing machine, so they are remaining tight lipped. Military all over the world are likely developing an extreme phobia of closed source proprietary software. One hack and the armaments controlled by the software could be actively used against the end users or simply be shut down.

Electronics, any one part fails and the whole system goes down. A single capacitor with the ability to receive coms from it's power supply and could be triggered to short, board after board replaced, only to fail in the exact same fashion.

The professionally paranoid must be going nuts trying to secure those systems. I can not understand any country that does not force the manufacturer of it's own electronics in it's own government controlled and audited factories to ensure there are no embedded hacks because guaranteed all new military hardware produced for export will contain built in hack points and there ain't no such thing as allies in those hacks.

Volkswagen blames emissions cheating on 'chain of errors'

Electrician cuts wrong wire and downs 25,000 square foot data centre

rtb61

Risk assessment requires cost as part of the evaluation. So loss equals a million dollars and a one in one hundred chance means you should as a minimum spend one hundredth of the potential loss to ensure it does not happen. So million dollar loss with a one in one hundred chance, should get $10,000 minimum spent to specifically ensure it does not happen.

The bigger the loss and the bigger the chance, the more you spend making sure it does not happen and where that investment exceeds the gain, you simply do not do, what you were intending to do, quite simply it is stupid and fiscally irresponsible thing to do.

They are claiming to own a small arrangement of letters and numbers, you saw those letters and numbers and you failed to what, gouge the eyes out of the employees or shoot them in the head at the end of a shift.

Why Microsoft yanked its latest Windows 10 update download: It hijacked privacy settings

rtb61

We Told You So

Basically right from the beginning once Windows anal probe 10 was demonstrated to contain those Trojans, it was said, no matter what you do, what setting you try, M$ will undo them and go full anal probe mode.

It will be one whoops after another, not accidental but purposeful. The only reason they came clean once they were exposed because, yeah bit embarrassing, they were basically caught right behind you with their zipper open, probe out and ready to bend you over your keyboard.

Proof of concept, no matter your privacy setting they can and will undo them. Either you can uninstall those components completely and block their installation or basically you are an idiot if you install windows anal probe 10.

IOCCO: Police 'reckless' for using terrorism powers on journo sources

How About The Whistleblower

Should the whistle blower be sought out, should they be rewarded with early retirement and a massive pension as a reward. This investigation pretty much demonstrated the threat the whistle blower was under, that active psychopath conspiracy to hunt them done and what kill them in the line of service.

So how about at least an investigation into what the conspirators intended to do to the police officer who acted according to law, conscience and honour. What had those corrupt law enforcers intended, what where they plotting to do with that information.

How about all those people tarred by association, are they not entitled to recompense, how about that emphatic threat to journalists 'not only will you be targeted as a journalist but also your family and any one associated with you'. Be friends with a journalist and you immediately go on a watch list, now that is a direct attack on journalists, that desire to isolate and control them, so they only report corporate desired propaganda.

Australia needs MOAR L33T WHITE HATZ, says Federal Police

rtb61

Why does Australian Federal police tech recruitment drive smell more like a phishing expedition than a recruitment drive. Develop all the skills they want in private and you pretty much have put a flashing target on your back, come and get me, come and get me, come and get me.

They need to wake up to themselves and hand the technical forensics over to ACMA http://www.acma.gov.au/, and the Asutralian Federal Police can just be field officers. ACMA is going to be whole lot better at recruiting and also far better at security research and analysis. They might have to legalise MJ in the ACT if they way to facilitate willingness moves from coastal cities to Canberra or locate the forensics, investigation and research facility in a more desirable city.

Bringing in experts from overseas would be profoundly stupid, as they pretty much would be guaranteed to get a whole bunch of foreign agents seeking to punch permanent backdoors in Australia computer and communications security, maybe they could also run that as another phishing expedition.

'Anonymous' says anonymous KKK dump wasn't from Anonymous

rtb61

The majority are 'Anonymous' in modern politics, the invisible people

'Anonymous' greatest strength is in numbers, they know where you live, they live where you live. It creates an effective fog for political activism because any one at any time can either be 'Anonymous' or not. So people are invited to anonymously join any 'Anonymous' action by direct independent involvement in what ever way they see fit whether individually or as existing groups.

This cooperative action being temporary and aligned around what ever political activist action, so rather than joining a falsely claimed anonymous group, you simply directly participate in what way you deem appropriate and proclaim that action as an action of 'Anonymous'.

Everyone can play, be it governments or companies just don't expect every one or any one to support that particular action. It all helps to obfuscate who is and is not anonymous and deflect conspiracy charges. Let your own conscience dictate the appropriate cause and the appropriate action to donate to humanity under the guise of 'Anonymous'.

'Anonymous', the people with no names, the people with no faces, the invisible people, the majority.

Wikipedia’s biggest scandal: Industrial-scale blackmail

rtb61

Re: Wikipedia is elitist directed FALSE narrative propaganda....

Wikipedia is open editable, it's power is only a measure of it's popularity as an open editable publication. Don't like it don't read it. At the end of the day only lying public relations agencies are sucked in by it. There are more articles than any person can read in many lifetimes, most content is lost in amongst that and really it makes little difference. As soon as public relations agencies started trolling it, people who regularly contribute to it decided to take the piss out of public relations trolls, making them pay one way or another, until they finally give up.

Basically the complain is Wikipedia was caught being 'er' 'um' wikipedia an open editable encyclopaedia, where people edit documents for various reason. Not happy with then then twaddle off to http://www.conservapedia.com/Main_Page and be happy, or more accurately angry at everyone away from everyone and get your favourite corporations to pay for it.

Identifying terrorists: Let's find a value for needle in haystack

rtb61

Let's drop the bull puckey. All this spy vs terrorist crap, is crap. It is all about corporations versus political activists, whom the corporations want to be able to treat as terrorists because of political activists threat to unlimited power and profits.

The corporations via their control of government want to destroy political activists, stick you head up to complain and they want to cut it off. This via prosecution as persecution, denial of access to public transport, denial of access to corporate or government employment, denial of access to financial services and this not just for the political activist but for their entire family.

For all of that they need to track everyone all of the time, so they can put boot heel to head the very instant you approach the focal point of any political activism either individually or as a group (in that political activism include Labour Unions, peace activists, environmentalists and those who support free and fair elections as well as justice systems with honesty and integrity).

Absolutely nothing what so ever to do with terrorists, unless of course you use the typical far right extremists US position where all those mentioned have been within three letter agencies declared terrorists (at least amongst the corporate appointees).

This with the four of the five eyes all sliming along behind, four of them under threat of egregious political targeted espionage activities (so really a one eyed Cyclops and four blind mice).

Star Trek to go boldly back onto telly, then beam down in streams

rtb61

The term reboot is just a PR hack to tie into computer jargon. Were the 2 follow star treks a reboot, absolutely not because they did not follow onto the originals and were just pretty lame, very poor story, second set action movies, with that poor story just barely enough to tie together the often pretty silly action scenes. Pretty much a lame cash in on the original franchise and they did a ton of damage to that franchise.

New TV series, I just know it going to be some half assed 90210 in space, to target a younger audience.

Pretty much the last two movies killed the franchise, the second one even worse than the first.

A smarter reboot would reuse the theme but dump that particular universe as unrecoverable.

Is Alphabet-Google 'too big to jail'? The Lords find out

Simplest solution, governments should create their own search region based upon a defined set of characteristics and localised to their region. Mandate that it be set as a readily and easily changed default and people are then provided choice.

Quite simply both Google and M$ have proven than searching the internet can not be left up to private corporations as they will distort the search results to favour profitable outcomes for them.

People need honest straight forward search engine which will provide 'neutral' accurate results, better for them and better for business.

Gross invasion of privacy with a view to psychologically manipulating human choice to favour profits at the expense of the people being manipulated is pretty much as evil as it gets.

rtb61

Basically we need to spy on you so that you can prove you have not committed any crimes but only if you are poor, if you are rich, then privacy rules.

Don't think so, think of the data collect difference between a private individuals internet connection and a corporations VPN hiding selected internal traffic.

Malcolm Turnbull's run Australia's NBN for two years. How's he done?

rtb61

They did the two things they actually planned to do, hand over billions of tax payer dollars for a network that was going to be scrapped at a loss, a free gift for those who won them the election. They also ensured news corp operated for a few more years with that massive competition from broadband cut off.

A Royal Commission into the conspiratorial corruption of the NBN and the funnelling of tax payer dollars to private interests would surely produced some custodial sentences.

You can also move to Australia and watch it for free on the ABC. I wander if ABC, CBC and BBC will come up with some sort of iview treaty much like their public health care treaty.

Re: Now you know how much your privacy is worth

It sure does change the relationship between M$ and it's customers. M$ has taken on the role of the proctologists and the customer is bent over waiting to get probed each and every time they use a windows 10 computer or they interact with anyone else using a windows 10 computer. They quite simply are desperate to get enough numbers out there to try a fend off a block on their windows 10 botnet.

Man goes to collect stolen-car court docs found in stolen car in stolen car

Re: will go far in this world...

More accurately shameless indifferent to the crimes they commit, a complete lack of conscience. Rather than crazy stuff like three strikes laws, there should be testing for psychopathy laws and those individuals who genetically lack a conscience through social cerebral defect should be treated differently. the likelihood of them repeatedly committing crimes instead of being a probability is much closer to being a certainty and this should be reflected in their bail conditions and post prosecution rehabilitation, should they fail to rehabilitate it should mean either no release or very tight monitoring.

UK gets the Ashley Madison fear: Data privacy moans on the up

Re: Problem is...

That kind of revenue stream would be on par with allowing homicidal maniacs to kill people as long as they pay 1 million per victim. Custodial sentences are required for all criminal negligence cases.
