Patching a fragmented, Stagefrightened Android isn't easy

I cannae dae it, cap'n! Why I had to quit the madness of frontline IT

Wolfclaw

Re: I also agree, but...

Agree, I always overestimate the costs and time of a project, for those little niggles that always show up and when I hand back a bag of saved cash, the bean counters smile, the bosses smile and I have sneak off with a smirk on my face and a pat on the back. Unethical, probably, warranted definately !

EU net neutrality deal miraculously keeps everyone happy

Wolfclaw
FAIL

EU Fails Again

So lets go through the points for the ISP's.

1. Banned from blocking or throttling internet speeds for certain services for commercial reasons - We'll find a loop hole.

2. They cannot prioritise content, yet enforcement is open to interpretation. - How much abuse can we get away with.

3. Some electronic communication services other than internet access services, require specific QOS - so we'll just throttle you and say the NHS needed the bandwidth.

4. Internet traffic can be managed to deal with “temporary or exceptional congestion” - we''ll abuse them when we can.

5. Temporary congestion beyond ISP control - I bet this will be a favourite excuse, especially when it happens a lot and they don't want to increase capacity when economically justified.

6. Zero-rated service are left to each countries ISP to abuse.

Looking forward to having my first run in with Virgin Media support muppets !

Google yanks fake Android battery monitor

No, what Google have done, is give advertisers a hole big enough to drive a bus through to ensure the droid gets it advertising revenue kickback and the malware peddlers have jumped on the bus without paying.

Why the BBC is stuffing free Micro:bit computers into schoolkids' satchels

Wolfclaw

BEEB Not Broadcasting

Although the idea of giving away millions of these little things is commendable, the BBC extorts money from the licence fee payer to provide broadcastable material either on TV or or online. They are not hardware manufacturer/suppliers/developers and this should have been done by other means. Just another example of the BEEB hemorrhaging money of projects that they have no reason to get involved with !

LG won't fix malware slinging bloatware update hole

Wolfclaw

Not Surprised

LG not patching, not surprised, they and the carriers got your money and don't give a toss about supporting you, you want the hole fixed, upgrade the handset you'll hear them say. They leave any fixes to Google, to try and clean up the mess. Android is a good O/S but compared to IOS and WP it is too splintered and bastardised by companies and carriers all trying to be too clever and screwing it all up !

UK.gov spied on human rights warriors at Amnesty International

Wolfclaw

Disgusting

UKGOV should be ashamed of themselves, who do they think they are North Korea ?

GCHQ have been found to be doing something illegal and UKGOV change the rules to protect them.

Cameron is a muppet and shown to be an inept a-hole when dealing with the EU ( Fuhrer Merkel ).

He has yellow stripe down his back, as wide as the M6 and only interested in keeping himself the the Tories in power.

And don't even get me started on Theresa "Crocodile Tears" May, a woman with a barely working brain cell.

Smart meters set to cost Blighty as much as replacing Trident

Re: Privatised Industry

Government have friends in the Elecrtic Business they need to keep sweet, for political donations and seats on the board for when they are no longer in power. It's just an old school tie network. FIFA does corruption with brown envelopes, UKGov screws everybody in the open, most of the time !

Windows 10 is due in one month: Will it be ready?

Wolfclaw
Trollface

Question

M$ says .. Once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device.

So if W10 has life cycle of 15 years, but I keep the same hardwrae running for 20 years (humour me), will M$ be liable to provide updates or come up with a loop hole?

Big Brother

"There is no evidence the systems have been deliberately designed in this way by intelligence agencies." and Hitler and his mates were bloody nice blokes, just misunderstood, who liked to chillax on a weekend having a joint or two.

Of course it was designed like this, this type of thing is a gold mine to spooks to find a person !

What MOD should have done is bank the £1.4m and any overuns and extensions etc etc and buy whatever the yanks are developing, minus the backdoors. The exact same kit mind you, not the yanks buy the F35A which works while, MOD buys F35C which is a piece of joke !
