GCHQ: Security software? We'll soon see about THAT

Sensi

@moiety

The OP appeared to do just that putting quotes around "revelations", or maybe i misread it and if that is the case: my bad.

Sensi

What a ludicrous conspiracy theory... 4 clowns and counting voted that garbage up: scary to think they may even dare to vote...

So in your implicit delusion "Kaspersky's marketing people" planted a 2008 GCHQ warrant for some 7 years late staged marketing ploy involving Snowden and Greenwald unveiling his leaks: your tin foil hat is showing.

Re: Free movie rental!

Read the new terms linked in the article...

"Exception to the right of cancellation: You cannot cancel your order for the supply of digital content if the delivery has started upon your request and acknowledgement that you thereby lose your cancellation right."

So if you use/listen/stream/download your digital content you probably won't be able to return it.

Applying the law is not making you a "gift", the "gift" if any was made by those voting the law there the European parliament...

What's it like using the LG G smartwatch and Android Wear? Let us tell YOU

Sensi

Re: Water resistant doesn't cut it

The LG G is certified IP67, i.e.:

- Totally protected against dust

- Protected against the effect of immersion between 15 cm and 1 meter (test duration: 30 minutes).

Unless you want to submerge it for more than half an hour or at more than 1 meter under water, it must be certified enough for your water resistance concerns...

Egad! Could Samsung be cheating in Galaxy benchmark tests?

Sensi

Hmm, every cpu, gpu or browsers are optimized against/for popular synthetic benchmarks whatever are the merits in real use, cheating would be to fake a processing power it can't achieve.

Intel doubles Thunderbolt speed to 20Gbps

Sensi

Re: USB isn't even close

Zz, Thunderbolt is a fusion of several proprietary/licensed connectors including Apple's Mini DisplayPort, for which Apple "reserves the right to void the license should the licensee "commence an action for patent infringement against Apple"."

I don't know how much "proprietary" this could get... Five people and counting were stupid enough to vote down the facts...

Sensi

Universal Serial Bus vs Thunderbolt, aka industry standard vs proprietary connector, with the first announced to be updated to 10 Gbit/s by mid 2013 the latter may never gain traction...

Brits, Germans, French, Dutch, Spanish and Italians ALL to probe Google

Re: The good news is Google will out last the European Commission

The usual nonsensical comment. Stating why you will never be a CEO.

Sensi
FAIL

Re: No one escapes the EU Inquisition......

You fail to notice that in order to "consolidate" around any policy European nations have to agree on common terms, and that these are precisely those independent nations who routinely prefer to "pick and choose" as it fits their traditional views or selfish interests, the UK even more so, not your scapegoated and vilified "EU"...

Murdoch slams White House over SOPA in Twitter row

Sensi
Thumb Up

Speaking of ad hominem attacks, I am digressing but Murdoch -his gutter level, xenophobic and Goebbelsian "press"- is one of the few public figures I am impatiently awaiting the -natural- death. That day it will be champagne.

FYI the Spitfire was introduced before the war in 1938, and its design and conception started well before. :)

Undiplomatic tweet from French diplomats

Sensi
Welcome

precisions

Actually citizens from Bulgaria and Romania, like the illegal Roma making polemic, don't enjoy the same freedom of moving within the European countries than citizens from others countries which are full members of the Schengen agreement , these two countries and their citizens have restrictions put in place, like the fact you mention that they do have to prove of a legal way of living, a job, if they want to stay more than three months on french soil. Citizens from others Europeans countries which are full members of the Schengen agreement are -as far as i know- exempt of the latter, and can be expulsed only if convicted of crime or illegal activities.
