Turn speech into text. Already done elsewhere.
Search for stuff based on text string. Pretty sure this has been done elsewhere *smirk*.
Joining the two together is somehow unobvious and patentable?
Peeling a banana. Eating. I shall now patent the process of peeling a banana and eating it.
So, you reckon, like, at the BEHEST of
U(sa) Kno Who ?
Is it just me or...
Do the Aussies seem to have an preternatural affinity for all things quantum and opto these days?
They dug too deep
YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!
And so forth
Which is all OK until you consider
Is the blocklist a centralised gov't controlled DB of stuff?
In which case expect scope creep, especially as soon as Big Meeja start backhanding their pet politicians (as then they'll no longer need a court case per block) and that's just one example of where it'll all turn to shit.
Re: American logic
I think that's just why they say they're having another war.
It's just a pretext for what they actually want.
As an atheist...
I explain things thus to religious types:
You know how many many years ago people would throw stones at the moon, shout & wave spears at solar eclipses to drive off whatever was 'eating the day'? You know how we look back on those ancient civilisations and smile yet we understand how, back in those superstitious and unenlightened times, they might come to think those things and hold those beliefs?
That's how atheists look at you.
Ohhh so s/he's doing us a _favour_
Well that's just dandy then.
Re: Surely ISPs are all for this really.
Lovedrive at a guess?
I wonder if 'Bianca Beauchamp' will be a banned term
As you please while you yet have a choice ;o)
Re: Public Servants Filtered?
They'll have the inverse filter.
Only kink and kiddie porn.
The ISPs have rewired everything
Like every device in your house has a separate bloody internet connection from your ISP.
Further evidence that that utter twunt and dangerous jackass Cameron has fuck all clue what he's talking about.
Or is intentionally spouting lies and bullshit.
Or most likely BOTH
Fixed it for you, David
the "corroding" influence of The British Government on the hearts and mind of young Britons
Re: An idea...
Or sign only for physical distribution and negotiate the digital distro with the endpoints themselves.
I'm sure management co's of the likes of Queen, Floyd, U2, Iron Maiden, etc could do that if it suited them.
Re: Nearly Zero.
Aren't those rates set by the record co's though?
Spotify will pay the least it can as that's good business but it's incumbent on those licensing it to work in the interest of their artists. At least superficially.
is that possibly not more down to their publisher rather than the act itself, except in the cases of peole like Coldplay et al ?
I still dont get it though
Why pretend you're dressing like a prison inmate who's advertising the availability of their arse for a bout of rough man-love in the laundry (or wherever's handy).
Or does it mean something so more subtle that's it's beyond the ken of folks who don't do it?
I bet Lacroix hangs out in #Perl on Efnet (that's on IRC to the rest of us), cynically telling people who've already searched everywhere else to 'go RTFM you moron and stop wasting our time'.
When after all, #perl is a last bloody resort anyway for Perl clues because of the social dysfunctionals that inhabit it exhibiting precisely that dickhead behaviour.
@AC & chums
I note we're still awaiting enlightenment from your vast IT experience(s) on what the replacement ultra-secure OS should be.
Well, you've had enough time to at least get to Wikipedia...
My money's on someone touretting 'MacOS' or 'BSD'. In which you've failed cos I said them first even though I'd use neither. So there.
Pints for everyone bar you.
"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.
You'd think, though
That they would test against software as well known as Camtasia or Premiere or Vegas Video, etc
Instead of Meejaplayer, or nothing.
Quite possibly FotE not feeling relevant enough so generating some noise to remind people they exist, too
Re: Old News ......
IIIIIIII'M ASPARAGUS !!
I'M ASPARAGUS AND SO'S MY WIFE!
Verizon won't do it a second time. Nor will anyone else.
Footbullet for Apple sales.
Re: Ahh the quaint old iPhone - that takes me back a few years
@Apple Cultist 7:10
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
$20 Billion damages bond in escrow then
Samsung might be doing a Google
And taking the effort to look one step further ahead than everyone else generally bothers to.
In which case they're just paying out the rope to apple.
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.
Protest about data stealing by data stealing
Who the fuck is Jay Z anyway?
Friday, so pint for all, even Appleists (as it's free)
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?
Re: The Raspberry Pi's OS is Linux.
I took the OP to mean recompiling ARM vs x86/whatever to run on non-Pi rather than thinking the Pi isn't Linux... maybe not ;o)
I mean everyone knows the Pi is (primarily) Linux, right..?
