Something very ironic about this, lol...... And who says that the Germans don't have any humour...

There is absolutey no doubt that a dark version of this tool will spring up as fast as an Interweb-Zuck-Meme.........
The daring virus, malware, spammer etc won't have to wait hours or days for meaningfull results, instead they will only be waiting minutes..... I hear a distant bell ringing "Moore's Law" doesn't only apply to IC, it also appears to apply to many different technologies/ideas.
Encoding the details in the returned packet, simple and very clever...... Kudos to the researchers.
"but I don't dare throw away, because I might need that data someday."
No need to worry, 1980's porn has evolved, today we have moving pictures........
PS : I have upgraded, replaced all of my drives, work and home, with SSDs. ( Well except for the the USB archive/backup attached to the NAS). I don't even remember the sound of the click, click, scratch, screech as data is being trawled from the anals of the highly defragged IDE 30 Mb "whopper" of a drive......
I think it is time that you asked for a refund, you were sold goods that were unfit for the purpose.
For the me the irony begins when we think about how the west likes to ridicule the like of Iran or NK....There really is no need to look further than ones own doorstep.
The results will run along the lines of "We took a long hard look, we studied the ins and outs and we have come to the decision that in the name of 'keeping the people safe from the terrorists" it is the only viable solution, now please STFU, go home and keep watching television"......
I wonder when Obama will start handing out Ass-Dildos to the US public....
I can't even begin to imagine how "exciting" this must be for the producers. There is a very strong chance that everyone will simply die..... Whether they eventually get their or not. The question lies in how long the whole affair will last. ( Yes, I know that everyone dies eventually anyway)
If they die during take off, the producers are f****ed, too quick, no profit.
If they die half way across, this would lead to a major anti-climax, several months of nothing , then death....boring.. This would make it difficult to get funds for EarthToMars2...
The best most exciting, largest audience, think sponsorships, would be death upon orbital entry.....This way no one would have to fund boring daily routines on Mars and everyone would have had their fill.
I don't possess a television so I guess that I will never become a sponsor to the madness.... Why would anyone even consider being sent to a barren planet.....
It seems a little bit incredible that none of the management were aware of anything.. I can't imagine for a moment that making changes to these boats is a trivial affair that can easilly be hidden.. Unless of course they have some miracle drugs that would make even Lance Armstrong jealous.....
Personally I wouldn't pay for the Google Glass, not would I wear it. What is most worrying though, is that there will be some twats that will pay and I want to know how to avoid being "recorded" by them.
I never really cared about this thing called "privacy", but recently I feel that is becoming very important.
Google is becoming synonymous with everything that I hate about "commercialism"....
Beware beware the ides of
Pride before a
fall Wall Street collapse.
[Mike Myers] "Cor! This
coffee rebound smells like shit!"
And a multitude of other proverbs...........
I can understand speculation on the likes of coffee, sugar and tea, but Facebook is a whole other ballgame..... i will never understand the stock market...
No, I don't think that they do. That's what so special about Bob, he is the 2nd highest earner. As the article stated that only Larry Ellison earns more...
Bob the Builder is not a CEO, he is just an employee ( OK he was on the comex).....but that still makes for one hell of a salary.
This is the Forbes list for CEO's ( not employees).
I couldn't even find a list for employees.
"If aliens landed and saw how we use the web they'd leave for another 10,000 years."
It's true that the web does have its "DailyFail" side of things..... I suppose at the end of the day it probably is quite representive of society. ( That's a depressing thought and it's only Monday)
Quick get Martin off of the web and into that Kindegarten immediately. He might actually be suffering ffrom an immediate strain of SwearWordsOntheWeb.......
He came to El Reg and expected "nice"...... OMFG, WTF......Faint, swoon, fetch me some water..... We have a believer..
Nah, but seriously Martin, most of the Web does not contain profanity and you are free to browse only the content that you desire, simples really. There are lots of nice Christian websites, some might even be orientated towards IT. If not why not start some up...
Are you "absolutely" sure about what you are saying or are you new to the game?
Will your solution really stop "Wifi" location being sent to Google, directly or indirectly through third part apps.
Will it also stop GPS location information being sent to google.
If I were to find a wireshark equivalant, you are saying that, I could be assured that by turning of "syncing for the Google account." no traffic would any longer be sent to google.
C'mon wake up man, there is far more to google/android than your contact list and porn browsing habits.
Just to let you know, the standard joke in France relating to the "Why the cock is the national symbol".
Because it is the only animal, that even while standing both feet in the shit, continues to sing.
Et maintenant en Francais
"Parce que c'est le seul animal qui, même quand il a les pieds dans la merde, continue à chanter."
Don't the planets "fly" slightly slower than UFOs and also represent a much larger masse.? ( Deathstar not included)
Also, the military must have some major doubts about their radar detection in order to mistake a planet for an "invador".....
I can imagine the pilots reaction when realising that his target was approxiamtely 750 000 000 million kms away. "Base, I don't think that our heatseekers are up to the job, we will need something a little bit more interstellar, returning to base".
<quote>AFAIK, having the master keys mean that each and every Android device is open to being attacked. Changing the keys would be next to impossible (AFAIK).</quote>
They are not open to attack UNLESS the user installs some dodgy software from bad sources.
HOWEVER, should any of this software end up on the Google Play Store then that really could be a nightmare. ( I am thinking repackaged Angry Birds or whatever the next fad game will be)
It is far too early to know the real reasons for the suicide, I presume that within the next few weeks we will learn about some stealing, cheating, sordid affairs etc etc .that he was involved in......
There have been a few high profile cases recently in Switzerland and I can't imagine that this will be any different.
William Hill should start taking bets on the real reason, it would be far more interesting than taking bets over a baby's name.
For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.
But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons.
The last ever dolphin message was misinterpreted as a surprisingly sophisticated attempt to do a double-backwards-somersault through a hoop whilst whistling the 'Star Spangled Banner', but in fact the message was this: So long and thanks for all the fish.
Douglas Adams knew a long time ago that Dolphins were very special.......
Our Corporate Policy requires password to be changed quite often and on a regular basis. I used an SSO for a few weeks and i found it to be more of a PITA than storing my passwords in Keepass.
I have been a heavy Keepass user for years and I think i will remain that way.
I wonder how far Symantec can be trusted these days, Passwords "backed up" in the cloud........the word trust does not spring to mind..
Children have endless amounts of imagination and lots of time on their hands. They will persue the web endlesssly looking for ways to circumvent these kinds of restrictions, sloqwly but surely they will find the method/program/proxy etc etc . When they do find the circumvention method they will then spend hours circulating that information to other children.......
During this time dear old Mater and Pater are completely oblivious and feel quite smug that their children are apparently protected from the "horrors" of the web.
Never treat children like fools, they will show you up every time...... Imagination is far more powerfull that any lock will ever be...
The chuch and the slaughterhouse are equal targets, the principal remains the same. Once you are throught the locked gates however what you do with the "swag" is very important.
There is no point in saying that Sputn1ck was wrong because it does not change the fact that the deed has been done. It is far more imoportant to discuss what can be done in order to prevent further replication or how to avoid making the swag worthwhile.
Ironic, you start of by calling everyone grumpy ol bastards then you proceed to demonstrate what's not good about SkyDrive.
By the way, did you actually read the article, SkyDrive will become the "default drive", in other words it's not a backup device at that moment, it becomes your "principal" and therefore "unique" copy of whatever file you are working on......
And pray tell, what solution is available to you when SkyDrive goes titsup..
