Did the leopard Kill YOU ? Are you still Dead? Get in touch and let us know. ®
Its Dead Jim!
Pity the app is wearing a red security top and never seen before
Re: Friends ?
Pppssttt...... EVERYONE is spying on EVERYONE else, even the Germans are releasing malware for they own spying purposes.
It's not spying that the issue its getting caught.
It's always Berlin what gives Threadstone issues.
there's a reason why semiconductor engineers like beer so much.
Because it tastes sooooooooooo nice and makes coding easier, well it did when I was a student, a jnr, a dev and a lead.
What ARE you talking about ?
What Steve Jobs didn't invent this
Come on he must have sent secret messages from beyond for this one.
I wonder if the hard grafting apple engineers ever got a bit annoyed with Stevie putting his mark on all the patents.
your guilty until you prove otherwise.
Re: Just how inedible are seabirds really?
They are still eating in many parts of the world, including Scotland, where we cover them in batter and deep fry them (ok I made the last bit up, we eat them raw).
Almost any salary in London is really not nearly enough to live on.
"He also agreed not to try to poach AWS staff for that six-month period, too."
Is there not a class action for agreements of not poaching staff between tech firms. I think this is bit heavy handed on Amazon part. This also would not fly in UK/EU.
Q: So how do we win the next election?
A: Well we give FB $100m and with use 50% increase in cat videos to our targeted demographic, showing bad news to the maybes.
Q: Will that really work?
A: Worked last time.
...and then try to run SCADA system on Windows machines - just how many points of vulnerability do you need?
Any OS is full of holes.
Re: Not Too Bad
Nope it was me, speed reading it seem is not my forte
Not Too Bad
Well at least they can still get porn,
Has you PC Speakers never chattered with Mobile phone interference ? This is the phone inferring with a subsystem within the PC (TV or radio) most likely the sound card. Now if you could develop this so it developed a buffer overrun on the sound system you might be able to inject data or code into the computer its self.
You also have to remember that Mobile phones are computers with a very broad RF broadcast range; so if you can find a common or range of common subsystems that can be targeted that chances are that they use the same chipsets such as USB, BlueTooth, Wifi, Ethernet. Just because they is no configuration of a sub system (eg network, wifi, IR) does not mean it is not powered, working and more importantly service by the OS.
Also think of other attack vectors such as a picture on a web site can inject code in to the client OS (very common).
First AC then DC so you get ACDC
Re: I want a robot......
I want a robot to key an eye on my first robot.
Mixed Views on this
Not good for lowly paid home helps (no job)
Good as I don't have to move to get a beer
I may never have to hover again
But maybe we should be getting more active not less.
Remember the first law of Robotics.....make money
So Self Patching Systems
How easy will a self patching system turn into its own denial of service attack.
How about adverts for.....
"Apple Powered By Microsoft (for now until we can ivent something better)"
iFanboys will be cheering until the next update. When they will be told to cheer something else.
Re: Stuff it can't hope to deal with
Cycle nearly ever day through a busy city as well as doing long country runs and mountain biking, and I'm also a motorcyclist. With drivers you can eye ball them and make eye contacts.
Stuff it can't hope to deal with
Drunks on road at 11pm
Buses / Taxis the raptors of the road
Filtering Motor Cyclists
Car Jackers; it will politely stop and open the doors, its the safest option
Trucks using the right hand lane to turn left
How will it know to stop for police or just pull over
Ambulances wanting past and you have to bump up on kerb
Will it think flash bike lights are the police ??
old tech Reg
can't you get "invent" an app and suck up all the data from the mob, meeting in person is soo old hat!
Someday the gravy train of climate warning will come to an end.
I am skeptic of warming NO!
I am believer of the bad science and doom mongering to generate research funds... YES!!!
What do you expect....
If you eat humans, there are a lot fatter than they were 60years ago.
Re: "...4.5 billion years ago...” Ramirez said. “A lot of things can happen in that amount of time.”
"brown dwarfs, which will burn for 10s of billions of years, but are hard to see because of their comparative dimness."
Even the sun has some dim cousins .....
Why make older cheaper 4's when you can make some very expensive 6's in the pre-launch ramp
Re: reason Apple scoops so much of the industry's profit
"Apple stuff is supported for longer and tends to get used or passed on an used for years."
Eh....No this is complete rubbish. Apple do selective upgrades so your older iPads / Macs can't install any of the software / apps in their store. The older versions of which will work on this kits is not available on their app store.
What is the World says "No"
Governments around the world make a very healthy income selling RF space to mobile companies;. And what if the said governments don't want an effective spy network over their lands.
The current Tory government in blighty (no its not a coalition, if you think it is; your just kidding yourself on) will no doubt say "YES" as Google has better access to no 10 than the current Tech gov department.
Does having your phone automatically login in twitter even if you don't use it count as an active user?
But.... Is it Giant Kitten Proof ?
You never know when a giant kitten is going to climb your post office tower.
How about a real waterproof jacket that doesn't cost £300+
Is there anything to stop Google themselves doing this? Seems to me they have a cheap way of getting Street View updates without the fleet of camera cars.
Yes.. .don't use the glasses !
But you could replace the firmware with a non-google one.
They look tasty.... perfect for a Griswall xmas.
Re: Some of this makes me want for "simpler" times.
I use Clearly from Evernote which strips most of the junk from a page and leaves a nice clean view of the actual text.
I used to wrote whole technical documents in NRoff Troff for electrical engineering specs etc.. back in the 1990 so we can have a sort of intranet. You needed to think in certain abstract forms to get them to work correctly and all of them were written in Vi. Ah.... those where the days.
The really good guys will leave quickly for better rates, while the bad will hang about and moan. Don't like your customer then find another. This is independent companies here NOT employees and most contracts can be terminated with in a week or so on either side. It is shit but it will be the middle management that will suffer all the pain as contractors leave and deadlines that can't be meet.
It was a fair "copitor"
It was a fair "copitor" by the flying squad.
Wanted "the development of a product which does not yet exist".
Well yeah.... that's call a new system.
Re: What are we waiting for?
My old "Snow Leopard" box could not (or they would not) be upgraded, so I converted to run Ubuntu instead; and its been great.
Re: Is this Tesco's fault?
Eh No..... you'd think that a LOT of login attempts from the same source (ip etc..) would start to raise a red flag somewhere. If your customer base is in the UK and the IP address come from somewhere else, then this is not likely to be your customer.
This looks like is a mix of sloppy user security (if Tesco are being truthful) and a lack of security on incoming requests.
Re: I really like my C720 Chromebook but ...
Is blockbusters still going, thought they all shut?
Re: Nobody remembers Bill Gates saved Apple
I have never owned a samsung phone and likely never will, I have however had x3 iphones, a fair few mac books, ipad, ipod. I'm not a Mac Fan boy but do tend to buy their kit (sometimes).
Nobody remembers Bill Gates saved Apple
Yip Bill Gates stepped in Gave Apple a big pile of money with very generous terms and saved apple. What did the employees of Apple do, boo him. I've read lots of "Mac / Apple Histories" over the past week and this little fact seems to have been missed, which is a pity, but Apple would have likely folded and we would all have crappy phones.
Debug That Sir!
Not sure I'd like to debug those web applications. The logs would indeed by odd.
Corner Shop ?
This sounds like a corner shop or even argos
Own email Address
If we give all the "internet of things" their email address they will be too busy spamming each other to bother us meat sacks.
Re: Oracle will never, ever be competitive in that segment
They can if they really really want to. They have the cash to burn and a unique mix of systems, databases and hardware. If they don't then they the next Borland/Lotus/etc... and they know this. They need a complete mind set change, will be interesting, but I think they will fail.
