"put off calling government phone numbers altogether"
Does anyone ever wonder if that may be the point?
Not that you'll every find me watching football anyway though I believe quite a lot of people do. Whether there's any demographic intersection between people who know what a VPN is and footballists is another matter, mind you.
All for starving greedy companies of revenue, all the same.
Glad the UK was able to share something back to the US
He missed a trick there
I have auto-sweep set up on my PP account ;o)
(At least that's how I remember having set it...)
"Operated within the law"
Google, Amazon, Starbucks, Vodafone...
Ahhhh politicians, they always want to EAT the cake as well....
You could accept, with grateful humility, your good fortune to have sold this much snake oil already and give the yacht a polish.
Quite possibly FotE not feeling relevant enough so generating some noise to remind people they exist, too

Verizon won't do it a second time. Nor will anyone else.
Footbullet for Apple sales.

Which is what people always say when they can't get/afford the best and/or latest or just realise they made a poor purchasing decision in the firs tplace
Keep an eye out
For US transport planes with Snowden-shaped rendition cargo on those flight paths.
Good luck with that.
I hope all the legal project documentation is being done on paper with lemon juice ink cos, you know, they'll be reading those emails for sure.
Hmmm let me see...
If I made some software and put a back door into it, I think I'd go to prison or at least expect to be sued lots and lots by every single customer whose shit I'd intentionally compromised.
Unless that backdoor was for the NSA, presumably.
In other words, then
NSA still more unpopular than Snowden
I'd like to think
That someone in mastercard grew a pair.
I suspect the truth is somewhat different and altogether less savoury, however.
Final pint of the day for everyone BUT the card processing companies and their bedfellows.
I do enjoy the irony of how he's "protecting the USA" by essentially embodying pretty much everything the rest of the world (and a good number of US folk) looks down on it for.
Re: I wonder....
More than he did 30 secs ago...
Re: That guy
I'd have thought any competent hacker would just use metasploit to see if they actually even _needed_ to bother scripting anything cunning in anything other than PHP. Much as I love PHP for getting webdev stuff done I can't imagine it being the weapon of choice for a hardcore hacker. Not that I can be arsed to hack anything anyway unless someone's asked me to do a security audit cos they're too cheap to hire someone who knows that shit inside out and lives/breathes it.
LOL @ Neighbourhood spastic.
He reminds me of
Those lone 'survivalist' gun nuts with their own corrugated metal bunkers and crazy alien abduction paranoias
But in an internetty kind of way. He maybe even has PTSD of some form, too, to help his eyes swivel better.
Re: What nationality is IPCom again?
Ahh that's what I was thinking of ;o)
If any 'thingy' is covered anywhere in the world under FRAND then litigants should be compelled to sue under the terms of FRAND or, if not signed up to it then they can't sue until they are.
This is just obvious exploitation of a loophole by maniacally cackling greed-obsessed charlatans.
I hope they, their offspring and their reproductive pool all contract fucking Ebola and die horrifically. Preferably on YouTube so we can have a good giggle.
What nationality is IPCom again?
Oh yeah. Ameritrollican.
I'm sure companies from other countries must do this racketeering but to be honest I can't think of any.
The needs of the Few
If you need that explaining then tough
Re: Obama says US won't scramble jets or twist arms for Snowden
Or perhaps "Obama is an utter fucking liar"
Which statement is easier to believe?
I wondered if that were the same DVDJon. Good man, still busy with stuff!
As for a Linux version, if you can get the sources of the Pi packages surely you can compile them onto any *nix pretty much ? I'd assume the player side treats the Pi as a media Renderer (or the Pi treats the Android app as one).
Either way XBMC should help you there, esp with the excellent YATSE android remote control app.
"free of politics"
Good luck keeping it that way
"could change societal norms"
Yep, coppers being videoed beating people up could increase, politicians caught pinching cute women's backsides, accidental egress from a whorehouse, etc
God forbid the public might be able to record as much behaviour as Us without Us being able to get to it first and destroy it, must get ahead of the curve and legislate in Our own favour.
Re: This ain't academia.
I would submit that the amount of backstabbing and bastardness is directly proportional to the greed & avarice of those involved.
So is a good indicator of who to distrust in the first place as you attempt to weave your way through life as comfortably as you're able with the minimum of outright bullshit.
Black helicopter cos a good conspiracy theory will always deflect attention from what shitty behaviour you're really up to

Euro countries "should look first"
And be suitably smug that none of _their_ employees feel they're doing something so out of order against their own populations that it needs a good leaking.
DDOS their revenue
Maybe.. just maybe
e.g. pornhub.com/contactus (I bet it doesn't even have to be a valid url, either, esp when "automated")
A pen. Just that would sell me one

It hits the wall, Truman Show style...
Of course they're doing a good job
HMRC are following statute, something set by the idiot politicians.
Though I'd rather they suspended/seized a company's assets rather than give them a 85% reduction in tax bill by negotiation on £6BN or whatever
I should imagine though, that a judge who's had enough of apple's pram-face can say 'fine you're scheduled for preliminary hearings in 2017, as we're a bit busy with dickheads clogging up the system for everyone else.'
Re: I bought the S3 because of this legal nonsense
Weapons division = government pork for R&D.
R&D = invention and innovation (something still apple dimly remembers)
Which translates into tech for consumers.
The AC's (Apple Cultists) will disagree, natch, but they'll be the ones appreciating stuff like ABS and traction controls systems on their cars which comes from 'weapons grade' Formula One Car R&D. Same principle.
Still, the thought of One Infinite Loop as a Korean-crafted smoking hole in the ground does have its appeal.
Apple, the incessant whiner of people copying it's shit, releases
May I be among the first to raise a weekend-ahoy glass to another halving of their share price.
Pint for all.
Is the scariest word in the world.
Roughly translated it means 'We sure do got some biiig guns an we is a-comin fo ya, right or wrong' or possibly 'we goan be a-havin us a lynchin party yeah!'
Yes, that really is how the rest of the world thinks of the USA as a nation.
"I'm not going to be scrambling jets"
No. That's what minions are for.
'He' will be on the Whitehouse lawn sipping 'Camommiilytea' with a smug grin safe in the knowledge of how those expensive-per-hour jets are bringing a 'traitor' to 'justice'.
Presumably Justice is a small town in Arkansas/Cuba/Egypt or something, rather than the dictionary definition.
