OCZ wasn't ones at fault. Sandforce the company that made the controller they used screwed up in on the firmware, sadly since OCZ was largest SSD maker at the time they took the most flak.
"In this particular case, the vulnerability came about through certain architecture and software components that are unrelated to the QNX Neutrino OS."
If that is the case it wouldn't be blackberry's fault if fiat added in software/modules that were flawed. It would be like blaming MS for cause adobe flash cause windows to get infected or java. But people will see them guilty by association kinda like where OCZ took a huge hit for a bug in SSD controller firmware they had nothing to do with.
It didn't change my browser default to edge, it asked i told it to leave default what it was,
"The White House stated that no amount of public pressure – even from a petition backed by 167,954 signatures – will sway it from moving forward with its prosecution of Snowden"
Someone forgot to tell Obama, um "the white house" won't be his much longer when he gets tossed out after his 8 years of destroying this country and putting it in massive debt.
If MS owe's billion's? How much Does Apple Owe?
Seems to be a recurring trend with Apple, everything is a hard to fix problem. Guess that is how it ends up when only thing in your face is money.
If you remember the celeb photo leak, yea Apple knew of the flaw that was used 6 months ahead of time, nothing was done to fix it til after the leak.
From what i seen, Apple has no problem after 2 years doing it. that is generally how old OS is when its cut off completely from updates. PPC i think it got 1 new OS version after switched to intel after that is was dead.
I never said they haven't reacted to it, i said they have an issue getting things fixed in a timely manner. There was a flaw called flashback i think it was many years ago. Was a java exploit, 0 day bug that windows fix was out within a day, Apple had the updated code to fix it as well but took then 2 months before releasing the fix. Apple has a habit of taking a LONG time to fix nasty security flaw's. Its so bad that it would be easy to say Windows is 10x more secure then and Apple's OS's just on fact MS fix's things in a reasonable amount of time, where as apple you can't expect it to be fixed for least 2months if not more.
Give the problem with this flaw, Apple shouldn't need 6 months hell they knew about it for 9 months now still hasn't fixed it. Reason you say 1 months is to make Apple get off their butt and FIX IT. Problem is Apple has a nasty problem of NOT fixing stuff in a timely manner EVEN with ALL THE MONEY they make takes them months on end to fix an issue.
they told you to wait 6 months? IS that a JOKE? Seriously i would tell them they got 1 and its made public. Reason for that is Apple is Terrible at fixing flaws in their crap. Make them get off their butts and fix it
Um mantle being open, no DX12 in the works when anoucing mantle, no new hardware needed for freesync when new scaler in monitor was needed, Bulldozer making them back competitive with intel, power of their APU's (they are even getting sued by investors over this one). I could go on but you get the point.
AMD has Promised a ton of crap over the years and end up not being able to live up to those promises. So I will wait til they prove what they claim.
DLNA requires re-encoding of video to support its spec so its no better then plex/serviio.
I wouldn't call it best streaming, as it has almost 0 local support for video files on a network outside some complicated 3rd server software. My old Boxee supports playing just about everything stored on my desktop, MkV,AVI,OGM,MP4, ETC. via Windows file shares. Yet natively roku can't do that without plex or serviio. I own Both.
Given the fact that Kiwi business is Allowed to hire people to blind call people to scam them claiming their computer is infected with a virus just to scam money outta them. Can't say I really feel sorry for them.
Yea just like complaint against IE in windows, a couple EU companies Whine about things and EU jumps to their beckon call. Also EU needs the money cause they broke as heck, gotta prop up Greece and Spain so why not make google pay for that.
A good password is a pretty good protection, this fool should look in to one.
<sarcasm> Nice to see Apple as fast as possible to release patches for major flaws, while leaving even only few year old versions of their OS open for attack.</sarcasm>
NOW he is making the pledge when he couldn't even bother to give 2 craps before about it. Obama is really tring to drum up support for his party in next 2 years after trains wreck of last 6.
"Saudi Arabia's prude police have hired ethical hackers to pop hedonistic Twitter accounts identified for spruiking smut leading to arrests."
So they call them ethical even though they will be hacking/cracking a companies servers that are not in their country? Another issue is "smut" as they call it, who determines what is Smut and what isn't? Problem with this if the owner of said accounts don't live in Saudi Arabia they have 0 right to attack anyone's twitter account and take it over cause they don't like what they say.
Sadly if they win this lawsuit it owns up lawsuit against pretty much any phone makers, computer makers, etc. Anything that has storage in it cause there is what its max space is but OS for said device takes some some of it.
That would be all well and good if that was what the case WAS about. It wasn't though, it was MPAA wanting Hood to put pressure on Google over movie piracy. They put the illegal drugs crap in as a smoke screen for what it was really after. Just like how when they tried to push SOPA through they claimed it was focused on things like child pornography, which was the smoke screen for MPAA/RIAA to get blocking of sites in the US on a ISP/DNS level.
Hard to believe a politician to start with but when he goes after a company that MPAA has had years of difficulty getting them do what they they think is enough which even then won't be enough in their eye. That 1+million $ donation kinda says you aint doing this for the children, that is like how they claims SOPA was to shutdown child porn on the internet, its nothing more then blatant smoke screen for what its really intended.
Its Apple, they never have been quick to fix security issues on anything.
Its not as open as you think, i think you are still required to login with your comcast account to use those hotspots.
You as a customer can opt out of it and not have it.
"and places a burden on their bandwidth and electricity bills."
Thing with what they claim burdens their electricity, that is a stretch since the router is already there using power for your home wifi anyway, the open doesn't incur anymore power then if its off. Bandwidth well, you are not charged for any bandwidth used by the open wifi as that is separate.
NSA might already have the data, but if it was used in a case against a company or someone it would be a problem in the fact how that data was obtained. Likely would be ruled as obtained via illegal tap or another illegal means so would be deemed inadmissible.
And the fact the contract Apple wrote up for deal with publishers that no other place couldn't sell the books cheaper then what is on itunes store. Apple got what they deserved when court made them bend over.
Reason they dropped all lawsuits outside the US was Apple didn't have the judges in their back pocket. Slide to unlock was ruled invalid everywhere outside the US.
now question is, How long til Apple sues Samsung over the note III claiming they note III looks like the iphone 6?
Look how long took apple to go patent troll on samsung? Apple didn't start sueing til samsung started kicking their ass in the market.
Pretty clear verizon is being anti-competitive. Probably trying to force people in to use verizon on-demand streaming options instead of letting that money slip away to netflix.
Stuff like this doesn't happen less its an inside job, they can deny it all they want but chances that a rogue outside hacker that gets this kinda axx are insanely remote. They would need source access and time to modify the source and make sure it work's.
Problem with all this, AMD includes gpu as part of cpu's performance, well issue with that is NOT ALL programs use gpu properly or even at all, only a few do.
they will maintain promises of being extra good til stamp that makes deal final and irreversible happens then they will forgot what they said.
Its Apple so that question is rhetorical.
"That looks unlikely. Apple is currently beating Samsung like a red-headed stepchild in the courts, and secured a $120m judgment against the company earlier this month"
You mean they been beating Samsung in a court house that might well be held on Apple's front lawn as court house is stones throw from their HQ, not a conflict of rigged jury in that case.
Less people paying for tv channels and more going to online options like netflix and this is a way for comcrap to get a piece of that pie.
Yea apple will just get all the end users to do the leg work.
"The other get-past-the-prior-art inclusion in the patent application is height – so if, for example, you're closer to an access point known to be on the second floor than the first floor, Apple can guess that you're on the second floor."
How would it know you are closer to 1 point and not another? Say there is router on floor below you and you are standing right above it and other is at other side? Then it could say you are on 1st floor not 2nd?
i would take that bet, Apple is just that greedy to make the smaller one 100$ more and jacked the price of the larger one 2-300$
Some point Apple will claim Samsung copied their bigger phones and try to get them banned.
well when you can take hardware that cost same as everyone else's and sell it at 2-300% mark up, yet people still buy it cause they are idiots. You will have insane profits, google may not have the insane $ but they are seen as a much better company as most their products are FREE.
"Equity research analyst Rod Hall said the fruity firm was missing out on a huge market by failing to produce a cheap-ish mongrel laptop priced between $500 and $1,000 (£300 and £600)."
they already had the ipad at 6-700$ and laptop at 1000ish$. On top of that Apple don't know how to make a cheapish, they believe they can crap in a box and it will sell for 100$
AMD claims 500watts, but most tests show single 290x's pulling more like 300 watts so this card most likely in the end will eat closer to 600watts. 2x8pin's per specs are 150watts each (they can do more but still)
About only thing that has surprised me is Apple hasn't DMCA'ed ifixit to get these repair guides removed.
It pretty much is, they haven't innovated a thing since what? 2010-2011ish? Just rested on marginal updates to all its products while trying to sue all their competitors outta the market that have been making better products for last 3 or so years.
They have no right to the info in question.
