Typical, you're probably right, too.
Don't fix the problem, fix the likelihood of someone else discovering it.
Gubbernment at its most gubbern-mental
Think of the children, of course, educate them to distrust the lot of 'em.
Strong government intervention?
They're the cretins that created the circumstances that allowed this.
An angry mob would be a far better intervention...
So, if you were a government
... and you wanted to destroy confidence in a new currency you couldn't control or track,
What might you have your Super Sneaky Agency of Freedom Management do?
Yes. Black helicopters. Damned right.
perhaps a UX like this might work?
is session active?
yes --- continue as normal
no --- redirect below
Ask user if they want a cookie
yes -- continue as normal
no -- redirect below
Present info to user that they are not allowed to continue using your wesbite as it needs a cookie setting which they have refused. Present a form inviting them to vent their spleen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just need to get an email addy out of the beauro's that people can vent to...
So does that mean -
That Google analytics code will have to pop up cookies on your behalf?
Since the USA took the opportunity to fuck us with a 'special relationship' as wages when we *hired* them for WWII they've been sticking it to us financially ever since.
Hence it's probably 'extradite or lose this investment in the UK' which is the usual tune they play.
BUT STILL IN THE COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE ONLY
Which is why
I put an old YAC number which goes only to voicemail as my contact no.
Surprisignly I never get any emails recordings from it. Shame. Not.
What a pair of utter morons
That is all.
I bought my Desire HD for the spec at the time. An update is bonus++ as far as I'm concerned!
more prior art
I have shareit automated payment reports in my inbox from 1999 and I'm damned sure they were doing it in 1998, too...
In fact I almost certainly have domain renewal reminders from before then too. In fact most of the world must have.
The starving people die and the landwhales just place a burden on the health sector that sustains their lumpen lives.
This sounds like it's going to muller some folks' site stats...?
Follow the money
If they or their clients were making money from those ads they'd not pull them.
Most visitors to those sites likely have AdBlock+ installed so the ads never get viewed/served. They're just spinning it as an anti-piracy move when in reality they're cutting deadwood.
My Desire HD is a great phone. I bought it because of the spec at the time, not for some mythical upgrade it might one day receive.
An upgrade to Gbread might have been nice but it certainly doesn't ruin the device for me by any stretch of the imagination.
Ah but wasn't there a huuuuuuuge thing of water towards the end of the ice age when that Canadian glacier thingy bust loose?
There are some watery incidents in the dim past of mankind upon which I'm quite happy to believe some very backwards & superstitious ancient humans would attribute to a deity cos of their sheer magnitude.
Do remember though, these are still the ramblings/race memories and interpretations of an extremely primitive civilisation all the same.
Exactly the same primitive civilisations that thought Gods and stuff lived in the sky.
Oh. Hang on....
When you can't sue to defer blame for your own shortcomings why, it must be a deity....
Is just a mental crutch for a shedload of people who don't want to think they might be responsible for their own lives and issues.
God's Will my arse. It's your own damned failure to try & take charge of your own miserable existence.
Carbon dating proven to be a con
Agree with hammarbtyp, believe what you like but benefitting from the 'discoveries' of heretics makes you a hypocrite.
No immunisation, life-saving surgery, or strong cheese for you, m'laddo.
If humanity was all wiped out 'cept for Noah's bunch and some cute goats & camels & so on then can someone 'Of Faith' remind us how African, India, Asian, American Indian, Samoan, etc, etc people came about from this remarkably tightly defined gene pool. In just 10,000 years (400 generations)... ? With nobody noticing ?
I prefer to try & discern The Rules of The Game and use The Rules to improve the lot of myself and nearest/dearest. It's kinda like a Getting Ahead Challenge thing.
But you're not wrong.
They did do an astonishing job and they achieved many of their goals.
You're making the understandable mistake of thinking their interests coincide with yours/ours.
Goldman Sachs, Citibank, etc being prime examples.
Another example (more of a pattern actually).. US 'business' invests heavily in poorer country (Taiwan, Korea, etc, etc). Country's economy goes titsup. IMF steps in and gives country money. Money given pays the businesses (USA) debts. Country collapses. USA gets richer by effectively loan-sharking a poorer country. Which is now utterly in hock the The West.
So if an American hacker hacks US.gov....
'bout time they had theirselfs another civil war, YEEHAAA!
In a terse response, the Whitehouse replied
We're the USA.
I heard that
Barnes Wallace is the be renamed Brian Goldberg in the movie...
I should think
that it would be incumbent on the Nortel purchaser to honour existing licensing agreements...
Otherwise I could buy MS tomorrow (in theory) and immediately invalidate everyone's Windows/Office licenses and demand more payment.
which translates to 'We're the Police, fuck off'

NOTHING TO HIDE. NOTHING TO FEAR.
Right? Eat your own damned dogfood you power-crazed lunatics.
Two hits on one number plate on cameras 500 yards apart timed at 10 seconds...
Hate to put a smirk on crapple's face but
This is way too dear.
Was waiting to see the price of these as I was definitely going to check one out. I do know for a fact, though, that I won't be spending that kind of money on a tablet device. My Desire HD does enough of what that does and I already have it, thanks.
So no, HTC, I will definitely not even be checking a Flyer out now I know the pricing. Fail.
(And no, Apple, you don't make anything I want, either, so stop smirking at the back there)
Govs will love it when....
They are able to trace financial transactions at will as they do with banks.
That is the only reason Govs don't like it, because it takes transactions into the dark from their point of view. Remember cash is 'suspicious' if you're carrying enough of it but if you have the same amount in a bank account the gov can trace it's not an issue.
If you're doing something with money the gov cannot track then you are behaving suspiciously by default. Privacy itself is pretty much 'suspicious activity'.
So presumably, based on that
I could take a photo of, say 50 people, and it'd identify them for me by suggesting tags?
Or do they have to be in my fiends (sic) list?
Do you think
David Cameron has been shagging Hazel Blears?
Gosh. If that turns out to be true and there's a soopah poopah injunction I'm not allowed to know exists I could be in hot water!
Thank god our government keeps us from knowing what we need to know to avoid talking about what we're not allowed to talk about.
Giggs, if you're reading this, remember a super injunction doesn't make you NOT a twat, k?
And Hostel / Hostel2
That slithery sound
Is the sound of the CIA rubbing its hands with glee as they finally start to reap the payoff of 50 years' hard work destabilising the Middle East to bring as much of that oil as possible under USA (not even Western) control...
Poor old Colin
I feel so sorry for him.
He obviously found it quite Harrowing....
Ok. Coat got.
Presumably a lot of pkg files are called that?
Instant installer DOS attack?
Hope they're checking filesizes as well. If not then hey, you can have this advice-101 for free, Apple.
Give it to the Americans for free
Like we usually do.
God forbid we should hold onto any handy inventions/discoveries and make a few bob from them.
Imagine the bill
If it turns out Apple screwed up...
It'll run and run
until it's less profitable to keep doing it (and lobbying) instead of changing business model
It would seem to have been a genuine Apple part purchased in good faith from the actual manufacturer. I can buy genuine ASUS spares from Europe and ASUS don't sue me.
Still, yet another reason not to want anything made by apple, as if I need it.
Fanboi cos the gimp loves a good bending over.
Sounds like Tony
An old boss from several years ago. Seriously.
Glad he got nicked, that's NO way to drive. The friggin' PHONES are sposed to be handsfree, not the fecking CAR.
Which would be OK
If the UK legal system weren't in the hands of the USA legal system...

you naive, meaningless twat.
Security through obscurity
Given the degree of obscurity Apple obsesses with...
Hark! What's that?
It's the sound of a million unpatched Apple devices spamming you
... aren't the other religions who DON'T have have any amageddon planned last Saturday take this as irrefutable proof that THEY are correct and proof that Christianity is crazyfoojibberjabber
They're missing a big marketing opportunity imho
It's people like this that mean we ended up with safety labels saying 'WARNING: SHARP!' on knives and 'MAY CONTAIN NUTS' on bags of errr.. nuts
Remove the obvious safety warnings and let Darwin resume his course.
Why don't you hire some application developers to create a mumsnetguard tool to install on windows/linux/mac machines so that it can filter according to mumsnet rules and protect the pc user (from themselves, presumably).
Or, you could pay a hardware company to develop custom mumsnet firmware for their adsl router that has a mumsnetguard option built in and enabled by default, thus protecting the whole network at connection source.
Or, just maybe, you already looked into all this and shat yourselves when you saw how much it would cost and decided it was far cheaper and there was more media inches to be gleaned from whinging like a bunch of ineffectual attention-seeking bastards who want to delegate all responsibility for parenting away from actual parents.
So, in summary....
GET A CLUE OR FUCK OFF
international computer security standards
That allow the united states of americaland access to all your (and your citizens') data without recourse to anything less sympathetic than a cruise missile.
Surely Apple must now allow apps developers to let users link out to webpages to take payment outside the app, hence missing out on their 30% tithe or risk losing apps in the US, etc.
I should think that possibilty might make them raise an eyebrow given how fanatical they are about owning the revenue chain.
I'd issue an update to my app which made it a demo version and a bought version, separating the two then claim no US customers. Wouldn't burden of proof lie with the plaintiff?
Or, just stuff the USA and do the rest-of-the-world instead
Ah the body
