Having encryption enabled stops the page from being modified during transit. It prevents ISPs from injecting adverts or downgrading the quality of images to save their bandwidth.
The lobster not only had DAB radio but some form of TV transmitted over DAB. The phone wasn't too bad, it was a standard HTC windows smartphone. Theoretically capable of almost anything but lacked the power or the software to actually do anything beyond email.
The DAB radio was far too power hungry for a little phone. I remember I took mine to the cricket so that I could listen to the commentary on sports extra. I took 3 batteries and didn't make it through the days play.
There are still quite a few problems with Mobile 10 and I think Microsoft would be wise to take the time required to resolve the issues before they start upgrading 8.1 clients. I have a 950 and I knew when I bought it that I was buying in to a partially finished OS but for people already running 8.1 there's going to be some annoyance with loss of functionality if the upgrade happens automatically overnight.
I upgraded a 625 to the latest preview build and it's actually usable which has never been the case with the older builds. The bugs that Andrew mentions are all there, live tiles that don't update are pretty annoying. There's also stuff in the background that has gone missing like AVRCP 1.4 if you currently control music on your phone using your car stereo you're going to get a shock when you upgrade.
I hope nobody is using AVRCP 1.4 to browse music on their phones over bluetooth because Microsoft have decided that 1.3 is advanced enough for windows 10.
I like Windows phone 10 but Microsoft should not have released it until it had all of the functionality of 8.1. They certainly shouldn't be releasing it as an upgrade for 8.1 when Windows phone is used by a lot of not particularly techy people who have Windows phones because they can be bought much cheaper than Apple devices aren't a total brain fuck to use like Android. These people are going to wake up one day (if the alarm goes off) and find they can't use their phone because it looks similar but everything has been moved.
It doesn't need to work like that.
You just need a menu on the device that shows you the available networks, pick a network and tariff, enter some details and you're online. This would work for basic payg deals. For more complicated tariffs or contracts it can all be done online.
Only real drawback is the loss of temporary sim swaps, battery in your phone is dead you can't borrow one for the day until yours is charged up. This is becoming harder and harder these days anyway my spare phones take mini or micro sims, my current phone has a nano sim so I can't just swap my sims around.
Actually 8 comes with IE10 and can't be upgraded to IE11, 8.1 comes with IE11. Fact remains though you can't do Windows 8 and IE8.
I'm guessing the article should say Windows 7 + IE8 since that was the shipped version of IE for windows 7.
It's called webjet admin, centralised patching, reporting etc. etc. for your HP printers.
Loads of stuff made in the 80s is at its limit at 1080p. A lot of those films were made to look grainy by pushing the film. When you scan them at higher resolution you don't get more detail, just more grain. I think 4K is probably the limit for 1:1.85 content. You can get a bit more for 4:3 or scope.
I think people will very quickly realise that they don't care. We've been watching 2k projection at cinemas for years and nobody is complaining.
And after the would be fraudster has "shoulder surfed" your PIN how do they make use of this information? In order for the PIN to be any use they have to steal your card. This means they have to follow you from the shop where they have surfed the PIN until they can somehow obtain the card from you.
With a mag stripe card and signature all the fraudster needs to do is get a skim of your card, the signature is worthless and cards are easily copied.
Good luck getting a bank to perform a forensic inspection of the receipt.
Is this a premature end of media centre? It's probably going to be the final nail in the coffin for me the only thing really keeping me using media centre was the TV guide.
I've started investigating alternatives, for Freeview, it's not too bad since you can get the EPG over the air. For Freeview HD channels you have to use the EPG data from the equivalent SD channel.
As an SME your barrier to a fast Internet line is rarely the install costs. If you can't afford the £3000 for installation then you're unlikely to be able to afford the £500 per month to run the line. Most businesses can get FTTC, if they need more than that then chances are they can afford to fund it themselves.
Whilst it's perfectly possible to make this device work with Windows Pro and join it to a domain you will run foul of licensing terms unless you buy retail (not VLK) licenses for windows pro. Windows Pro VLK licenses are always upgrade licenses so require you to already have a copy of Windows Pro on the device you are using. I also think that as a business device they are hampered by being wifi only.
If you want to run a mac but there are a few windows programs you need then virutalbox is fine. If you want Cortana and the Windows 10 Action Centre then you probably want Windows 10.
The reason why the updates take so long to install is not so much the processor (although that won't help) it's the 2GB of RAM. If you watch task manager whilst Windows updates are being installed you'll see the trusted installer process consume more and more RAM. Once your computer runs out of RAM Windows starts swapping to disk and updates grind to a halt. If I've got loads of updates to do on a computer and I want to get them done quickly I do them in batches of 30 with a restart after each batch.
I hadn't either until a couple of months ago when I installed ffmpeg on a raspberry pi, ended up with libav instead and nothing worked.
opens the download manager in most browsers (including edge)
Surely Nvidia are at fault here, they are the ones who wrote the driver sent it to Microsoft for release via Windows update but didn't also add it to their own, pointless, update routine. Also it's their pointless update routine that was automatically downgrading the driver. If it had been the other way around with the Nvidia software ahead of Windows update there would have been no issue. Windows update would have ignored the driver release because the installed version was a later release.
Of course whether Microsoft should be automatically updating driver software or not is another matter entirely.
@theOtherJT what sugarbear is saying is that it isn't possible to make a working replica contactless card using the information that can be obtained from the card. If you have in the past had your card cloned, either
1. The information from the card was used to shop online
2. The card was used in a store with the details read from the mag stripe or entered directly into the till
This article is about lax security verification in online stores. The contactless card part is moot, I could obtain this information using CCTV cameras, if you have an American express card I can even get the CV2 since this is on the front of those cards.
I don't believe this can be the case. In the last month I've bought 3 CDs I don't think that any of the artists responsible for the music on those CDs isn't expecting me to rip those CDs so that I have a copy for my phone and my PC. The only CD player I own is in the car.
The TFL help page is quite interesting, it suggests that at the point of transaction TFL don't have access to your card details, but they do have access to something that uniquely identifies your device. You have to use the same device to tag in and out on stations, can't tag in with your watch and then out with your phone.
It seems they then get your card details later since they are able to match your journeys up with your card details and display them on their web portal.
It's also interesting for the guidance on how to use Apple pay, I don't live in London but have experienced the tube during rush hour and I wouldn't want to be the person whose phone times out because I unlocked it more than 1 minute before hitting the gate, or the person who gets a phone call has they're trying to enter/exit the gate.
The whole point of contactless is that you trade security for convenience, it's less secure than chip and pin but it's quicker. Apple seem to have added some more security and for that they've had to trade convenience.
Your CPU will need to have NX support, so anything pre P4 prescot or pre AMD64 will not work, this is also a requirement for Windows 8 so anything that runs 8 will be OK but not all computers running 7 will be.
Mine doesn't, it's an early UK model and has a SATA card. This is something that I only found out when the laptop had arrived as all the reviews had said it would come with a PCI-e card. Later models had a choice between SATA or PCI-e.
The 150 or 300 TB figure is just for the warranty. Anandtech have a good write up on this here http://www.anandtech.com/show/8239/update-on-samsung-850-pro-endurance-vnand-die-size
They reckon that for a worst possible case the 1TB version would withstand 430GB per day for 5 years.
The old 256GB 840 Pro managed to clock up 2.1PB in the tech report test http://techreport.com/review/27909/the-ssd-endurance-experiment-theyre-all-dead/2
Why are we still getting "new" SATA drives. I thought SATA was done.
You're going to struggle running ARM anything on an x86 CPU such as an Atom.
As far as I can tell, if you're using WSUS then you won't get this update and in addition if the update is installed on to a domain joined computer it won't run. So this is only a possible issue for sites that have off domain computers updating directly from MS.
A: exactly the same as windows 7 and windows 8 which are both much faster than doing the same thing in XP
Press start, type network connections
That's 5 euro cents per MB so €50 per GB of data in addition to whatever bat shit crazy figure your operator has pulled out of their arse to charge you for out of bundle data.
Always use the offline installer, it doesn't contain ask and won't contain Yahoo! It's a pain when you update because you can't use the auto updater, you have to go and download the full offline installer again.
I've got one of these http://www.streacom.com/products/fc8-alpha-fanless-chassis/ but it's quite bulky and has a huge external PSU.
So we can get 4TB in a 2.5" drive but the biggest 3.5" non shingled drive is 8TB. What are they doing wrong with the 3.5" drives which are physically about 3-4x bigger than the 2.5"?
well obviously some apps are going to break, just the same as some apps break when you go from ios 5-6-7 or android 2.3-4.0-4.1 but most windows phone apps that ran on 7 were also fine on 7.5, 7.8, 8.0 and 8.1 and will probably still run OK on 10.
Thing is for USB 1, 1.1 and 2 you can generally use the same cable.
For USB 3 you can use an old USB cable and you'll get USB 2 speeds. If you use a USB 3 cable you can't connect it to a USB 2 device, it won't physically fit and it works fine in a USB 2 host just at the slower speed.
I don't think USB-C is going to be an issue either. If you have a 40Gbps disk array you're going to know that a £1 Amazon basics cable isn't the best thing to use and you're not going to be trying to plug it in to your computer monitor.
I guess there could be some minor confusion if your laptop has two ports with display port on one and not on the other but we have this at the moment. My laptop has two USB ports, one can charge devices whilst the laptop is turned off, the other can't. If I plug it in the wrong one, no problem I just plug it in the other one. At the moment that takes 4 attempts (3 on the first USB, 1 on the second) with USB-C this will be down to 2.
I think people are missing the point here. You still use a GUI to manage your server, you just don't run the GUI on the server. If I want to make a change in Exchange I use Exchange console, on my local PC, if I want to perform some dba tasks in SQL server I do that in SQL management console, on my local PC. Reading the event viewer, ADUC, group policy, WSUS etc. I use the GUI for all of these tasks because for a one off task it is generally easier than the CLI but I don't run the GUI on the server desktop.
This is all well and good, the problem comes in installing software. Software generally has two install options, either a GUI install which needs to be installed on the local machine or a silent install which requires you to construct all of the parameters into a commandline or answer file. What we need is remote installers, run the installer GUI on your desktop PC and it connects to the server and pushes the install.
I have a surface pro 2 at work and it does sit on your lap. It's a bit weird because the kick stand means you need space behind the screen on your legs to make it stand.
Personally I'd still rather have a nice light laptop.The new surface 3 is just too expensive and has too may compromises to make it really useful. The whole surface range has always suffered the same issues. They're too bulky, lacking in apps to beat a decent tablet and they're not as good as a decent laptop at being a laptop.
There is a way to make kettles more efficient but it's not reducing the power. The trick is to make the kettle only heat the water that you need rather than the amount you pour in.
Microsoft should've pushed this more.
Windows Media Centre is an excellent PVR. Take up was poor due to the cost. A decent media center PC with IR remote a couple of HD tuners and a fluid interface will set you back at least £300. That's a hard sell when you can get a box that does 80% of the same stuff for £100 or companies like BT or TalkTalk will throw a box at you for "free".
The other big problem with media centre is that in the UK you can't use it with Sky or Virgin, Microsoft needed to do deals with these companies if media centre was to succeed.
The final issue is that whilst the PVR stuff was very good, the rest of media centre is very poor.
I'm still running the windows 7 version I guess I'll carry on with that until Microsoft no longer support it and the EPG dies. By which time nobody will be watching broadcast TV and there will be something better to use.
you forgot your joke icon
"So - will dead ones still get into Silicon Heaven?"
There's no such thing as silicon heaven
I didn't realise 37 had gone stable
I don't think this is going to be the same as O2 broadband. The customers of O2 were used to getting a decent level of service particularly those on bethere. Those customers already had the choice of sky broadband but had chosen not to go with it.
Lots of EE customers are already going to also be BT customers for broadband and phone lines but at the moment they can't get mobile from BT, if they're already BT broadband customers I would imagine they will appreciate a cheap package deal on their mobiles.
It's a transliteration, you can spell it either way, it's an interpretation of how you pronounce the word and different people will pronounce the word differently. I think the only correct way to spell it would be חוצפה
Surely you don't need a whole new drive to connect to a USB-C port, just a new cable right?
I love the idea that you wrap a powershell script in perl, do you call that from a batch file wrapped in python?
"Lenovo support tools to help Lenovo keep your drivers up to date, and allow them to remote your PC if you give them the code
Lenovo tool to make special keypresses (such as turn on/off keyboard backlight, tweak monitor brightness, etc) not only work, but show an icon on the screen when you push the button."
But this is bloatware. Drivers can be pushed through Windows Update no need for a different Lenovo tool to be running to do this.
There shouldn't be any special key presses, volume, brightness etc. all of these are standard keys and since Windows 8 there have been on screen displays for them too.
Instead of wasting everyone's time developing these tools they should spend the time developing their laptops so that they work properly with a vanilla Windows install.
Your knowledge of world bridges is lacking, that's clearly Hull
It will almost certainly be fine, but so is a raspberry pi 2 for less than half the price.
You have Samsung Magician installed? And running? And you don't think you're an idiot?
The last time I installed that piece of software it needed elevated privileges to run in the system tray, it got un-installed pretty quickly.
So it turns out that IT stuff sometimes breaks. If you can't afford to be without your computer for the amount of time it takes Samsung to RMA your drive then I suggest that you need.
1. A spare drive
2. A warranty with next day or 4 hour support that will come out and replace parts when they go wrong
3. A spare computer
If you don't have these things then you need to be asking yourself the question, "Did I need to install a firmware update on my SSD?"
Did the firmware update fix a bug you were personally experiencing? Did the firmware update provide some new functionality that you couldn't live without?
