Miserable getting caught, isn't it?
Don't use Best Buy's service, better yet don't do business with them at all.
This is why we need AI so badly - to distinguish the good from the bad guys.
...for those individuals walking around looking at their iToys instead of where they're going.
Maybe they've figured out a way to use those bladeless fans for propulsion.
Wait ... with 12000 satellites, couldn't they task a few for the rest of us poor folk?
"...still run Windows 98 ..."
The ones I worked on some years ago ran OS/2.
... lack of documentation ...
Unfortunately they stored it all in the Cloud.
"...not true anywhere else..."
It makes me cry to see to amount of taxpayer money pissed away by this, mostly to IBM...
When I fly somewhere I like to put a lock on my suitcase. The lock must be TSA approved, which means they (and almost anyone else) can open it. Consequently it makes no sense to put anything of value in there.
This is what the FBI wants with your device. If it comes to pass, people will adapt, which means not keeping anything private on the device, and finding another way to do things. My device has a password, but there is nothing in there to protect, I just do it to make life harder for the crooks (and whoever) if it is stolen.
I hate what they're doing to citizen's rights in the name of terrorism, but the horses are all gone now and most people don't care.
How is it a company that nets $7.8m in a good year is worth 1.6 billion? That's 0.5 percent. Better to put their money in a bank account.
Kill ..... Kill ....
When I was shopping for a mobile, replaceable battery was one of my checkboxes. I chose a LG-G4. When (if) it needs a new battery, it will take all of 30 seconds to replace.
It's not just ad blockers, using a VPN can trigger captcha blocks. Even Google search does it. I hate the damn things and always find somewhere else to go.
What I'd like to know is, if the American officials are so freaked out, why they allowed Kaspersky's tools on their computers in the first place.
"...the exception of some Atom processors..."
Joy ..... my 6 year old netbook is secure.
Does it use another 1.35 MW for cooling? Or do they use it to warm Tokyo in winter?
Get a life.
Bring your own wheels? Cool
All that crashing, reloading and notifications, will make for a great user experience. Glad I use firefox.
Isn't this the industry norm? Let the user do the testing.....
The EU may prosecute Google for this but elsewhere they'll probably get a medal for Creative Capitalism.
An easy access to root would be useful to remove the crapware - as long as you can change the password.
If they could, would that change anything?
Just a punch in the face for their customers.
It's a great company to have left, which I did many years ago.
How is Kaspersky recognizing NSA source code anyway?
Anyone dumb enough to click through security warnings to conduct personal affairs on a company computer should be shown the door forthwith.
When I type 'moon' in Google Maps I get a map of Pittsburgh.
Anything that threatens the power of authoritarian governments must be banned.
that the fire suppression system works. How often do you get to try that for real?
Most of them would be facebook users, so doing them a favor.
JetPacking around here in winter during a blizzard.
Why does anyone use this? Just askin'....
"Tax avoidance does come with a huge cost such as less government revenue to fund vital infrastructure projects and no pay rises for essential public sector workers."
As much as I agree with your statement, no one can waste £1bn like the government. They certainly do on the other side of the pond where I live. The money will be put to much better use in people's pockets. And BTW 20% tax is outrageous.
I can't help wondering what happens when the owner dies. I suppose they'll just bury the gadgets along with the body, giving lie to the saying 'you can't take it with you'.
This might be a good time to disable updates, if you can. Or maybe the car will just refuse to go anymore. Not really your car, is it?
Better yet, Microsoft specialty: "Process failed, unknown error."
When asked online, I always specify my DOB as Jan. 1, 1970. Seems appropriate. Or maybe I should use 1982-03-04, the date I got my first PC. In any case I don't use FB or any of those others.
So how does it work when the tank is empty?
Must be a bitch getting in there to fix a part.
Lending money at high interest rates to people who can't afford to repay, then sicing debt collectors on them and deploying crap IT systems - what could possibly go wrong with this business model?
It seems that the more people we have in the world, the more they want to automate stuff. Am I the only one who finds that paradoxical?
Don't seem that smart, do they?
If the politicians want the benefits of social media they should be willing to take the heat that comes with it. Seems they want to tell you how it is but aren't interested in what you have to say.
Cost of landline, C$50/month. Cost of VOIP with more services, C$15/month. Over the same line. Fortunately FWIW have mobile as backup.
Sounds like the perfect computer for the NSA.
We need those tinfoil hats more than ever.
It shouldn't be hard to find a billion scrapped mobile gadgets. Spend the money figuring out how to hook them together. (Where's my phone?)
Wait a minute, the beaver is Canada's national animal.
Why didn't the Chinese use their own?
