Just wait till DARPA give them 300M to miniaturise it into a rifle scope...
Less 'terrorist' more 'whistleblower'
For a roundup any any non-US-based internet services/sites which people may wish to evaluate?
(Or did El Reg do this already and I was sleeping at the wheel?)
Europe will PPV if the uprising is televised. Popcorn!
It is but they pronounce it 'pry-vacy' and I think they think it means being able to pry into privacy rather than actual privacy itself.
I saw a huge improvement in my general health when I stopped smoking over 10 years ago - every cold would become like flu. Now I barely even notice a cold. Mind you every smoker knows it's very bad for them, it's pretty self-evident after all.
I doubt I would see such an improvement from de-baconing though.
The only curing going on in our house will be a bit of best back.
presumably you own your encryption key?
If not license wording can be changed to something like 'Apple gifts you your encryption key which becomes your personal property and you have the right to do wtf you like with it. Apple relinquishes any ownership or rights over your key, blah blah blah' and so forth.
Not that this helps older software but then Apple could happily spin it as a reason to upgrade (again)
As the old joke goes...
Would be a 'start'
Beer, don't forget beer, to better lubricate those transformative wheels of Baconism
Sharks off Cornwall.
Cornish Ice Cream.
Bish Bash Bosh. Proved.
Best stay indoors with blackout curtains while you abstain from eating and breathing. "It's the only way to be sure"
Just belling the whitehouse now, they do so like a spot of Freedom From Above
Then they should please step up their action and have Darwin / Mother Nature mop them up pronto
That shit they have in the US is hardly 'bacon' if I remember correctly.
Abso-fecking-lutely. Have beer.
I'm trying the uBlock Origin at the moment as a commentard mentioned last week somewhere. Mostly because ABP is, these days, willing to let (certain) ads through for money. Yep I know you can tick a box to defeat that but...
Better food from Chinese Masters than American ones.
Pah. Call it a 'Special Relationship'. If only to see how much of a thromby it gives the Yanks.
I was thinking that then it occurred to me that it does seem, over the last three years or so, that MS, Amazon, Google have increased corporate activity over here, compared to increasing business, so to speak.
Makes you wonder if they're not perhaps preparing to move HQ (extreme, unlikely) or decentralise/segregate US operations as they have plenty of clever & connected staff/associates who could have seen this coming. MS's Irish data case could be seen as a toe in the water to see how they may need to legally structure EU ops to not be beholden to any presumed US law. And that's before you factor in the whole recent Safe Harbour stuff.
Just thinking out loud, not an expert, IANNC (I Am Not Noam Chomsky)
Is being called Mr Pig-Stable, I'd have thought
Dict.cc offers the alternative 'Pig Feeder', also. Perhaps a friend of Cameron? (Even MORE embarrassing?)
Intereting (sic) capitalisation of 'grammar'
Probably so there's a case number for any insurance claim, nothing more.
Hello. Welcome to OUR world.
Not so smug now, eh?
He'll be experiencing some of that, doubtless.
Double the infrastructure ( as it's more sensible to sandbox non-eu data from eu data) and double the lawyers as now they'd have to understand US law as well for any US-originated data that may be held.
Also Co's would have to agree, under some circumstances, to be subject to US law wherever in the world they operated. Sounds like a jurisdictional trojan horse to me.
Don't see everyone jumping on that bandwagon
Does anybody nicked abroad ever get extradited to anywhere OTHER than The
Don't remember seeing anyone getting bagged by the French or the Aussies, for example (though I presume it must happen sometimes)
To work out how it couldn't be deliberate as it was being sold, not ineptly exposed...
Invoices are particularly fine indicators of 'pretty bloody deliberate' IMHO. I've never 'accidentally' issued one, for sure.
It's the NSA, not the LAPD...
Jenny, surely :oP
License number and only one concurrent IP address, then you can watch it from anywhere as long as you have your license number to hand and multiple people in the same house (same egress IP) should be fine to watch concurrently, bandwidth allowing.
Fhtagn Fhtagn, Yuggoth and so forth
I for one will NOT be welcoming our tentacle-faced overlords
Everything like this seems to creepily recall at least one episode in one way or another...
This ASUS Zenbook is more work than I expected
I have the older '671 model but it's a capable beast with 6 HDMI inputs plus analogue and composite and stuff. Running mine with Pioneer 5.1 surround speakers (it'll do 7.1, I think) and an active sub and it's a tip-top unit still for maybe 4 or so years old and it still receives firmware updates from Yammy, too.
Gesticulation / Gesticulate
Though quite why anyone would physically try to rob a bank these days is a mystery.
However, that didn't stop some enterprising numpty from trying it locally recently. He got nicked when he tried it a second time on the same chain of banks in a different local area.
Still it's potentially easier to defend against cybercrime than three big guys with baseball bats, for El Reggers, at least, maybe.
But at least they INVENTED the process themselves, instead of buying someone else's works to use as a money stick to beat other real innovators with
"An American court ruling for an American company"
That given the RF terrorgasm they're putting about and the long-since availability of mods for existing routers, that they'd have some fecking statistics to back up this FUD by now, wouldn't you.
That they've produced no 'unauthorised spectrum wibbly wobbly interference' figures to accompany their blatherings kinda suggests it's not happening or not happening on any scale that's even worth investigating.
(But the law won)
Has worked for XBOX/Playstation for years. Loss-making product is a well-known business strategy that's got nothing to do with the here & now. It's to do with the there & then possibly decades down the line.
Not much point taking on the likes of BMW/Audi/etc when your answer to their £35k car is £47k (30%) more expensive for the same or less. Not in that market, no sir.
If you thought the phone market was playing with the big boys....
Would the screen crack, too?
I suspect the existing arrangement is working so BO will take the opportunity to look a little less rubbish by saying he won't mandate it with that 'conversation' running along the presumably well-established lines of 'You know this security of yours, OH! What a delightful photo on your desk, are they YOUR children..?'
(Or the alternative of 'Those two hookers you used whilst on that trip to Seattle. Yeah,we have the footage')
And tell my younger self to stop footling around with electronics and computerisers and train as an IP lawyer.
I'll be universally despised but so minted I won't give a rat's arse.
Perhaps .TWT if it's available...
We do have a candidate name for galactically stupid criminals, a 'crime-related' version of the Darwin Awards...
The Carnell Eugene Butler Award
It even abbreviates to the moderately memorable 'CEBA'
I'm horrified by the racist overtones in this, to be honest.
That all white people should be stereotyped as buccaneering, murderous thieves and looters is, frankly, monstrously offensive.
I have my phone mount in the car arranged to video every journey I make (well when the phone's in it, it's not a camera itself, before someone points that out).
Not cos of plod but I am a bit fed up of other people driving into me over the last few years and then lying on their claim response. Spose I could turn GPS on in the app though no idea how admissible it may be in court to challenge a spurious/speculative speeding charge. Anyone ?
