Why listen to scientific advice when listening to a large group of fanatics wins you more support? After all, these people are politicians, interested in keeping their jobs, not on being right.
Haha, the guy is insane, the reason the tech companies are encrypting everything is because their customers demand it, they are a commercial company if they didn't think their customers cared then they wouldn't do it. His suggestion that internet users would welcome some surveillance is simply not backed up by the outrage people show towards it and the fact that these commercial organisations see that their customers want full encryption.
Haha, yea, so everyone should be using java instead? Oh wait....
Well, to be fair he should probably have read the terms and conditions he agreed to. Anything that happens after that is his own fault. Also, I think most people would have thought using a company brand in the title of their app might be dodgy and so doubly check the terms first. Due to this, my sympathy is limited.
This is just a lot of soundbites backed up with stats chosen to back up your particular view of the world, ay stats can do that. Would have been more interesting is what your views are on what a better system would look like? It also has to be a system people actually want to partake in, given we live in a democracy, the will of the masses dictates what actually happens, not some theory cooked up in a researches office.
Why is this surprising? Modern day crocodiles regularly kill larger creatures who come near the water. It is more about surprise, technique and one of the creatures being out of its comfort zone...ie in the water!
I am still using an S3 running the latest android OS and it is perfectly capable, so that isn't really an issue. Given that this device is for testing things you can't test in an emulator (you can test all the phone dialling stuff in an emulator) I really don't see what is shocking about this...kind of standard and perhaps making a story from nothing.
Errr, is it just me or did they just say they don't sell information to advertisers accept for iAd, which means they do sell the information to advertising except for that rather smaller product range they exclude because iAd is for advertisers.
This is not guaranteed though, unless you believe you can get the grain of sand to travel faster than the speed of light, if the amount of energy required would be calculated to required speeds in excess, then it may not be possible.
Indeed your right, and not many people are interested in waiting 10 years to start saving about £25, particularly when inflation will make the saving even less.
Re: Two-factor auth for Find My iPhone?
I guess then when you enable two factor authentication your also one of these people who ignores all the warnings to save the backup codes they tend to provide when you enable two factor for just such a time so you have to ring up support and tell them you didn't bother saving them.
Re: Let me guess why networks want Tizen
Really? When Samsung themselves are not even pushing it on their own phones?
Yes, very fair when you get less for GBH or death by dangerous driving or rape... what the hell is the judge thinking. It just goes to show your life means shit, but damage a companies earnings or the governments image and your doing serious time.
Yes indeed, I think a better solution is to let them all go but then never let them return!
Re: Manufactured story
So your saying the perfect cover for a terrorist plot is actually to just rent out a farm holding and they are in the clear....
I would rather the police concentrate on preventing and stopping the crime, not on changing what the thieves are after so they don't want it any more. That isn't really their job is it!
Haha, yea and I am sure the EU doesn't have its own agenda at heart either. This is just one agenda pitched against another. It has nothing to do with what is right for the person.
What a stupid thing to say, I don't intend on declaring a war on another country or landing myself on the moon. But most people are interested in things that happen outside of their own little world.
Well, whether or not this is real, I don't think her answer was really provided this way. She may have said yes and then done it as a gesture afterwards, but not giving your answer until ages after you have done this would be a bit harsh.
A big player has sensed a weakness in the Microsoft game of applying these patents, if they force it to court, Microsoft will once and for all have to reveal what the patents are. Good on Samsung!
Re: What can I say?
Ok, this is the same as saying people in general are idiots because they ring emergency when their cheeseburger has no cheese. Idiots pervade all areas of life, not just fb.
When it can wirelessly charge from anywhere in the house, im in. Until then I may as well plug it in.
We collectively own the spectrum so the licences given out should be free and the savings passed on to the customers. Any other model basically means the operators pass the cost onto us and so we are just paying the government even more money!
Re: This seriously sucks...
The fact he is still wanted by interpol perhaps? Meaning he can not visit any other country. If they were decent they would withdraw the interpol arrest warrant.
Completely pointless, endless patches that could introduce back doors and the issue of whether the code is what the binaries were compiled from all the time will make it impossible to achieve.
Re: Android users do not upgrade their OS as much
I agree with you here, id like to see a comparison of how many people upgrade their Nexus devices, which have updated available immediately, and those of other manufacturers. I bet the upgrade percentage is much higher!
I don't think its unacceptable though to find that a new OS with more features runs slower on older hardware. They make it compatible, they can't make it run as fast when its doing more... any idiot should know that, but the google trends seem to suggest im giving idiots too much respect!
I do think the whole of the UK should have a vote, you may want to leave or you may not want to. But then again, we may want you to leave or may not want you to. It works both ways.
Re: Satellite Mapping
Yes, this may well be the case. But what we are saying is that it is complete nonsense. Any country wanting to invade would have satellite photos and intelligence information telling them where all the bases are and what they do. Most organised terrorist organisations would have the same.
They need to stop living in the 1940's.
Re: Buy a professional product...
The issue isn't with how to roll out changes, its that when the change has been rolled out the compromise has already allowed certificates to be forged, it is the same as a jewellery store putting in better security after the jewel thief has already struck, good practice for the future but isn't going to get the jewels back. Here you had to apply patch, create a new signing key, create a new CSR and submit to a certificate authority for new SSL certs, apply those and then ask for the old certs to be revoked. Try doing all that with a group policy.
All of this misses one point, the decision of who to use is not just a price based one. As far as features are concerned, AWS is a still light years ahead of the others. Granted it what you need is provided by them all, your fine, but if you use something only AWS provides, it isn't going to matter how much cheaper others are.
Re: Not wanting to defend plod, but
No actually, in court the police and CPS would have to prove it was you, which would be impossible.
Buy us a few more years, the minimum period during the middle ages lasted a couple of hundred years. Sure relative to the life of the Universe its tiny, relative to my life and my families life, its enormous.
Re: It's the beginning of the next Maunder Minimum.
Err, what? Its a globally accepted fact that during the middle ages the earth suddenly went a lot cooler, this is why the Thames used to freeze enough to set up a fair on it in London. The widely accepted reason is the suns activity dropping. So, please, unless you know what your talking about, probably better to not try and deride someone else's opinion with nothing but rubbish. It would have been different had you said you believe man warming will exceed the cooling, but to say variations in the sun are never enough to have any effect is pure nonsense.
I guess the real analogy here is that this is similar to a court order allowing the feds to intercept and read all posted real world mail rather than just specific items. I am not sure on US law, so does this happen? Or do they have to say which mail they want opened? At the end of the day, email is more similar to real posted mail than it is a hard drive or telephone call.
One problem with this article, the two products are not the same thing and are not intended for the same purpose. Amazon glacier is designed as long term backup, once drive is just a remote drive in the cloud, not intended for long term backups, more an extension of your hard drive in the cloud. The API access is also woeful by comparison.
Yes, because taking the law into your own hands is a far safer and better solution. The most likely effect is you would have broken your hand, fell off your bike and caused a bigger accident than she ever would have. It's idiots like you that should be banned, those that get annoyed by things that are not actually affecting them, had she hit you, then get annoyed seeing as she didn't and probably wouldn't have, you have no reason to be angry at all.
I didn't really expect it to make a difference, it is no more distracting that talking to the passengers who are in the car with you. When it comes down to it, it's simply not possible to ban every possible distraction. The only thing that could cause accidents more with handheld talking is the actual physical holding of the phone, as the process of talking will always happen in some form. So if one handed driving is not significantly more dangerous, then the ban will always have been pointless. It has always been about a perception of it must be dangerous, rather than whether its actually more dangerous than anything else.
Re: I would laugh at this if it weren't so sad @ King of Foo
"The British and the Dutch were fully responsible for the slave trade, where is your guilt?" --- errr? What? When we stopped trading in slaves as we came to the conclusion is was in fact immoral, you were still doing it over there many years later. So I think you might need to re read the history books, not to mention how long it took you to treat the relatives of those slaves equally. Give me a break!
Re: "The system doesn't discriminate,"
Indeed, but could the reason also be that a lot of ethnic minority people are living in deprived areas and so are more likely to end up involved in low level crime, purely because of their social situation, as opposed to their race. So it will look like more of them are arrested, seems like an obvious truth to me that no one likes to admit.
Re: Sorry about this..
Yes, from a system Labour put in place and allowed prior to the conservatives....
Indeed, but this will bring up a lot of similar looking people in the database who the police would never have thought of talking to normally. Granted the court may not put much weight on it, but I doubt you would have appreciated having your time wasted if your innocent by having to go to court and defend yourself in the first place. Court cases can be length things, the police seem to think that if your found innocent then that's fine, justice done. What about all of the wasted days of your life defending yourself? They seem to forget about that.
Re: innocent or guilty
Yes, and they also say, if the person agrees. Do they actually ask people or do they wait for you to somehow know they have an image of you and then you have to complain to them? I think I know which one it is.
Re: Microsoft to the rescue!
Haha indeed, I have said time and time again, based on their logic in that court case, I could take control of the windows and microsoft domains as they appear to be promoting the use of an OS which aids in the distribution on malware.
Re: They were doing that late February.
Why explain that much, just say you prefer to deal with a human.
That of course is assuming that small French retailers can afford to offer books at 5% discount themselves on all books, if they can't then Amazon will still be cheaper as they can afford to do it on every book.
Presumably the ISP's could just ignore this law and when prosecuted for it, appeal it to European Court again, they found storing this data illegal before, they will find storing it illegal again under a different law.
So someone who knows nothing about something says something on issue. Great.
Right, and of course the US has decided their laws apply to the whole Universe (literally this time) again. What about when another country passes a law that says the opposite and steals said mined products from the US private space craft? hey are obeying their law and US law does not apply, they are not in the US.
Why does it need a door bell, it could come with a loud door bell and produce the sound itself! ha
Yes, but this wouldn't be Amazon at fault, much like if you shoot down a police helicopter and it falls on people below, it is not the police held responsible, the person shooting it down goes to prison for a very long time. If you shoot down any aerial vehicle and it hits someone, thats you doing the killing, not the company owning the device, there are plenty of severe laws surrounding this already.
