Good job the UK gov wasn't listed
Else there's be a new bottom place

So THAT'S why
Zuckerberg thought Instagram was a great fit with Failbook!
instagran.surefyre.com is way cleverer tech though... ;o)
"by 2018 that that gap could be tightened"
Exactly what I was about to say.
SSH tunnels it is then. Unless they want to ban SSH too and grind all internet work to a halt in the UK.
Re: Marmite man...
Both sides are arseholes in this, it comes down to which arsehole you think is biggest and therefore support (if at all) the lesser arsehole.
So dotcom gets my thumbs up (no, that's not a euphemism)
The alarmist scientists know
Cos they have 'Scientist' in their job title so they must be right and anyone expressing a less than cultist line on Anthropogenic Climate Change is a heretic.
Take the financial controls/motivations out of the equation and see what 'science' comes out of it then.
That graph/chart has a wave in it that's clear to even the mostly doggedly myopic Anthropogenic advocate and it's peaking around nowish again.
Unless of course scientists are really High Priests in this field and so these (heretic) scientists aren't as competent as the pro-anthropogenic scientists (who have The Faith, of course). In which case the Flying Spaghetti Monster may as well be invoked too (bless His noodly appendages).
Or perhaps Lewis drew the graph, too, who knows?
Still doesn't mean
That Samsung, LG, SONY, etc don't have the source code, just means that Google are able to release faster, surely? They'd know the OS best of anyone (you'd hope) and they'll have their own family of devices in house to test on as they develop, too.
Sounds about right that it should become ready devices they have the most access to first, doesn't it? Samsung should presumably be in a good position cos of the Nexus, assuming they're doing the work on that (which they might not be as it's Google branded)
Someone has finally realised cheapest is not best.
Or maybe they're just trousering a few mil in kickback after all...
Let's see the USA cry foul over THIS data set, then.
Perhaps they'll get round to that after they've copied & read it through a few times....

Re: What is the name of the app
The lack of information raises the validity of the report like the recent Microsoft fake email report which turned out to be entirely possible to be an email faked in Notepad that originated from anywhere....

Re: YAY more Android FUD stories
Having said that there was a report of another Android trojan over the weekend, not good.
Also found in IOS App Store...
Fanbois your clock's been ticking and no-one even heard it... Glad I stick with the 'only install it if you really need it' approach I use with all computer gear.
Having said that I don't know why Google don't allow users to individually grant/revoke privileges to apps regardless of whether it knackers the app functionality or not. For instance revoke GPS access to the Facebook app, it's always turning the GPS icon on. I could turn GPS off globally but it's handy for satnav...
Although in fairness I got about half way down page 1 then scan read the rest.
Is it me or did Lowery miss the point that pretty much the only route for money to reach these starving musicians is through the greedy megacorps?
There's a huge number of talented musicians working their arses off every day to eke out an existence doing what they love best but if the only 'router' of funds to them is a massive self-interested corporation that had been greeding it in for years with adversely-worded contracts, 'breakage' and 'recoupment' then actually the megacorp is the point of failure for raising the lifestyles of the muso's, surely?
I'd much rather send thirty quid to the Ozric Tentacles directly and download all their albums than £240 to get the same remuneration to them via a £210 kickback to a record company. At least, if I hadn't pretty much got all their stuff via the expensive route already. DOH.
I think the root of the whole issue lies with the megacorps they're....
Lazy - don't deserve my money
Litigious - Aggression breeds comtempt
Viewed as being in the 1% - general social fail at the moment
Greedy - Permanent social fail, all the time
Petty - If you're going to be like that I'll keep my money
Vindictive - I refuse to support that behaviour with my money
Prehistoric - Up your game and I might buy something
Protectionist - Your protect your income and I'll protect mine - by hanging on to it
If even you don't agree with all those descriptions you really only need to agree with any three of them to understand that the main barrier to well-earned revenue flowing to artists is these companies themselves. Yet no-one has yet come up with a credible alternative, either, at least perhaps one that hasn't been crushed into the dirt by these companies anyway. Sure the downloaders are denying musicians income in ways they don't realise (musicians do still get paid mechanicals on downloads, right? That's a direct financial loss to them) and many of these downloaders/rippers/seeders view it as a lifestyle if not some odd sort of career, it's also a lie to call a download a lost sale, too. While megacorps continue to behave and be perceived as they are now then they will still be the single greatest barrier to artists' income for the foreseeable.
Maybe it was an Android botnet
Oh hang on that was actually bullshit... and Terry Zink turned out to be Rinky-Dink
Maybe the same guys run XBL as do their email forensics...

Re: More news from Sophos
Yeah I was thinking Mobile Operator IP's should be a good indicator but... 90% of the time my droidphone is on a wifi connection of some sort and I'm sure I'm far from being the only one, so is it really a reliable indicator or a red herring / FUD / smokescreen.
There may well be a botnet that can use droidphones of course but that it originated from Microsoft is a key dodgy factor, the BBC spouting tech drivel verbatim is no help and, sadly, par for the course for them.
I'm sure google will have requested these alleged emails from the MS PR department for analysis by now so we'll have to wait and see I spose.

Yeab BUT it says sent from my Windows Mobile at the bottom. Only Microsoft phones can do that.
Re: So precisely do we benefit from discovering higgs?
Yes, you are
Aha! The Friday Portal reference!
Re: Is it just me
I remember lasers bein gdubbed 'a solution looking for a problem' - for a period of time it seemed you could apply a frikkin' laser to almost anything.
Downstairs where I'm currently working they have a big frikkin' laser behind a door marked 'Femto-second laboratory'. I think that's where they bottle really really small amounts of time for busy people who want to get things done very quickly... or something.

In an election year, if SSC *had* found it they'd have called it the GOP particle...
Change of direction
It's all about military industrial for now. They're still world leaders in varieties of methods of spying on people and killing them.
And really, how far would Texas have got without reading any LHC papers to narrow their search, anyway?
I wouldn't mind doing a little monitoring of my own....

Re: Good Ol' Apple
But don't you dare say anything uncomplimentary about us in return. We'll fuck you up.

Not that you'd think it, based on how much we're raped for car insurance by fat opera singers and their ilk.

Once more, Fapple saved a rival company mucho advertising dollah for the coverage this gadget's received
Google should write them a thank you note like Samsung did.
Re: Copyright Infringement Capital Crime
Yep cos the politicians take kickbacks and are now owned by the megacorps unless they want a sudden change of lifestyle.
Even today with open political corruption as good as actually being a reality TV show we still make the mistake of thinking politicians work for us and not themselves.
A politician's only employer is the one with the biggest payout.
OK, Labour, fair point
But it's still a shitload more preferable to what we're left with after your banking policies.
Re: Does that mean...
You're not referring to Luch Koh and her massive alleged hoard of Fapple gadgetry, surely?
I think the new plan is...
... based from news I read elsewhere, the plan might be to sue Google over patents under (presumably) Microsoft's background puppeteering instructions.
Re: Ye gods.
Actually, if the judge can be shown to own an pihone, ipad and maybe a mac thing of some sort could that be used to show predujice/bias?

Unfortunately your submission has been rejected with the following reason:
Re: Nicely left out the progress being made
It's the Anthropogenic aspect people are questioning, I don't think anyone questions some natural cycle may be taking place.
Re: Illegal or not... The raid had the "desired" effect...
I'm not so sure that the NZ side didn't do a little 'fuck america' creative sabotage...
It's easy to envision the FBI/whomever charging in shooting their sixguns in the air but for the NZ side to screw up as well on something basic like a warrant?
Do NZ have black helicopters?
Re: on the contrary
And an agreement they never reciprocated upon

Yeah the gleeful sycophantic rubbing of hands whenever the 'Special Relationship' is mentioned.

It's a US court, they'll do whatever they fancy if they think they can get away with it to prosecute Johnny Foreigner
Nice work if you can get it - be a Union boss
The Sun estimates that Len McCluskey gets £149,312 a year, made up of a salary of £97,677 plus £51,635 in benefits.
Yeah it's the SUN, but that doesn't mean they're far off the mark.
And add some interest back on, hopefully
As presumably M$ haven't paid up yet due to its 'ongoing' nature?
