Actually Apple is controlled entirely by the FBI.The proof is that they make a song and dance about not being able to break iPhones. If they couldn’t they would keep quiet :).

Re: Should have been shot...........
I’m not convinced he was disclosing anything, the article says Rowlands said “ As well as trying to read the mind of the enemy, we have been reading its telegrams for many years” but “many years” doesn’t fit with the Dutch telling GCHQ at the start of the Argentinian invasion.

Remember that clinical trial, promoted by President Trump, of a possible COVID-19 cure? So, so, so many questions...
Is everything OK over there, Britain? Have you tried turning the UK off and on again? ISPs, financial orgs fall over in Freaky Friday of outages
Everyone loves our new desktop web search design so much – the one with ads that look like links – that we're tweaking it, says Google
If at first you don't succeed, pry, pry again: Feds once again demand Apple unlock encrypted iPhones in yet another terrorism case
I’m sure you’re not an idiot. However I’ve just gone to Amazon.fr, not signed in, and Prime is offered as a free trial (as in U.K.) so surely that implies it is not compulsory?
Since you are a Prime member (sounds a bit rude ;-( ) I guess you are not being given the option to opt out when you buy, but why would? What happens if you cancel Prime?
I *think* you first two go to the same list. I deregistered all my devices in one and they’ve all gone — had to re-sign in again to kindle to continue reading a book. Your 3rd list was different for me and just contained fire stick (and a video I had viewed, deleted that too) and Alexa which I’ve never had but did set one up for a relative so it probably got added then.
How bad is Catalina? It's almost Apple Maps bad: MacOS 10.15 pushes Cupertino's low bar for code quality lower still
The problems I see all relate to syncing
The problems I see all relate to syncing. I installed the iOS 13 beta on a spare device and it acquired all my iOS 12 Reminders but ‘deleted them everywhere else on iOS 12, Mac Mohave and iCloud in a browser! There were also problems with iOS Mail not downloading messages (OK on Outlook) and some other weirdness that’s difficult to quantify/describe. Made me wonder what else wasn’t syncing. Essentially I was ‘forced’ to update everywhere to get my Reminders back and who knew what else. Now all my devices are on the latest releases and Reminders works fine (I think!) but now Catalina Notes is not updating on iOS Notes. Apple Mail was OK but now the iCloud mail account doesn’t show in the combined iOS Inbox — still OK on the same device with Outlook!
So I’m still wondering what else could be going wrong without showing up ... yet :-( .
Re: How could you not notice?
I used to keep a couple of hives but they died out :-( . However a swarm got into my neighbour’s roof (big house) and has lived on happily ever since. I can see them flying out in sunny weather and when my neighbour has a house painter he wears a bee suit and hat to do the upper windows :-) .

Re: Quote from Saint Jobs himself
I’m constantly amazed by people who think St Steve (as they like to call him) think it would have been good business practice to announce that Apple would make a phone or a stylus years before they made one. Have you heard of the Osborne computer? Osbornisation!
Password managers may leave your online crown jewels 'exposed in RAM' to malware – but hey, they're still better than the alternative
Here come the riled MPs (it's private, huh), Facebook's a digital 'gangster' ('disingen-u-ous'). Zuckerberg he is a failure (on sharing data)

Re: R V Jones
Yes but he wasn’t shafted by the establishment like the others. Since WW2 is ruling our lives (brexitmania) perhaps a larger group of all the scientists who were important in “winning the war”. Actually in these days when it’s popular to denigrate the Poles, my favourite for £50 note portrait would be the Polish pilots who won the Battle of Britain (exaggeration to make the point).
Trio - Tommy Flowers, Bill Tutte and Alan Turing
On the official web site I voted that they put a trio of Tommy Flowers, Bill Tutte and Alan Turing because they make a good group, won the war and were all shafted by the establishment in multiple ways. It doesn’t hurt that they were the offspring of a gardener, bricklayer and Indian civil servant — not only dead but dead common ;-)
Published leaked passwords
1Password now checks your new passwords against the leaked passwords at https://haveibeenpwned.com/Passwords which probably contains all the common useless ones like qwerty etc. I think there are half a billion passwords there, maybe more now. Some websites also check against this list when new passwords are created. It’s also used by GCHQ. More good work by Troy Hunt.
