How long will it last?
They'll find a loophole, a way to work around it, or the law will miraculously change.

Re: Anyone know ...
I reckon it's probably in the same ball park as the percentage of people who read EULAs or other contract small print.
I seem to have forgotten internet forum rule no 1
Search for the answer before asking the question.

So: develop the calibration app; install the calibration app; run the calibration app.
Watch as apple produce a similar app and remove yours from the store
"the companies already have this option at no cost by having your call automatically answered and playing their own recorded message."
As soon as everyone's used to hearing custoimised rings, you'll be able to move them seemlessly into a call they're paying for without them realising the calls been answered....
Actually, I wonder if there are any crafty bastards playing ring ring down the phone at me until i hang up?
Is this a first?

If both the above are true, start worrying

Re: Think of the children
Normalising having to provide your finger prints for services is pretty scary if you ask me
integrated capacitive fingerprint sensor will build legitimacy for the technology in mainstream consumer electronics, although privacy concerns are bound to raise their heads in these newly paranoid times
The first half of that sentence translates as
Look into my eyes, not around my eyes, into my eyes. You're under. Giving your finger prints is a good thing, look how secure it makes your phone. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could do everything by touching your finger against a little pad. What could possible go wrong?
The second part is both understatement of the year, yet also subtley phrased to make you think that those concerns are ludicously paranoid.

The remaining nine are all rated as important and block remote code execution, escalation of privileges, allow covert information gathering, and a denial of service flaw in Active Directory that can crash systems using a malicious LDAP query.
Re: Sounds good...
Do you really need me to answer that?
Re: Advertising z-listers
Surely the name would need to change to "tu you" for that to work
Good luck avoiding this tech....
Is anyone surprised?

You do know how search engines work, right?

Tea and keyboards don't mix
Once the system has your finger prints you can't get them back.
But thats ok because if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear
What's the problem?
When Microsoft receives a valid information request from law enforcement, it has no need to disable the encryption of messages, Smith said. Instead, Microsoft can take the data from its own servers (where it sits unencrypted)
Sounds perfectly secure to me....
Re: how can this NOT be national news

Re: This is just getting ....
But threatening to hurt people gets you locked up.
How robust some people's reality filters are.
Apple's Huguet said that Apple chose to drop the case now because its App Store brand had grown strong enough to not require additional legal protections.
I'm amused that you think they'll work hard to weed out the false positives. What will actually happen is you'll be found guilty because the database says you are. All the hard work will then be done by your lawyers, assuming you can afford them, trying to prove the database is wrong.
Spelling mistakes, gramatical errors.
They can apply it to anything
Re: Pot - Kettle - Black... etc
except that since no-one will be particularly surprised by the "revelations" it won't make such big news...
Are you suggesting that you were surprised by these revelations?
Re: Evil Genius Charter
I can't see Dr Evil being bothered with this.
What you will see though, is every "smart" set in the country tuning to 4music whenever they show a rick gastly video.
That really is a reason not to buy one.

Re: Unofficial CCTV
The story you've linked to states that under Californian privacy law it's illegal to put cameras in rest rooms.
Pretty poor that the state seems to allow contract to overrule law though!
Any evidence for allowing hidden cameras in changing rooms?
Just to confuse things.

Re: Prosecution would be proof of idiocy..
Yawn, here we go again. I walked into your house because you left the door unlocked and I'm only surveying the wallpaper in this street - still illegal, still going to jail, still not passing "Go", and still not collecting $200.
In the UK, this would not result in jail time. It's unlikely to even result in prosecution. The only reason it would be against the law at all is because of recent changes to squatting legislation
The bill sounds good
