It takes very dedicated programmers to create code with so many bugs. Kudos to Acrobat! :)

I got 99 secure devices but a Nintendo Switch ain't one: If you're using Nvidia's Tegra boot ROM I feel bad for you, son
So this dangerous exploitable hole I am going to get pwned through requires physical access? I am going back to sleep, tyvm. :)
So all you would need is a copy of a federal judges fingerprint to unlock any iPhone in the world? Sounds foolproof...
Wait, does this mean Apple responded to a Reg request for comment? That is bigger news than these flaws. :)
The v4 generation seems to have been skipped.
This is not surprising, the Chinese dislike number 4 and often skip it, even as a floor number. This is similar to us skipping number 13 in hotels etc.
Re: Only the imminent OnePlus flagship is likely to give it any competition?
I was being sarcastic. This Huawei model has just about matched the performance of the old 3T model (apart from the higher resolution screen and a bit stronger battery).
Only the imminent OnePlus flagship is likely to give it any competition?
Imminent here means last years' 3T model? Since that model had 6GB of RAM and 128GB of flash at a lower price point I can only see Huawei trying to catch up...
Why not use swallows instead of pigeons? European for normal thumb disks and african for the larger 2.5" variety...
I believe he meant Google and co...
@Steve Evans - since this is Google we are talking about if the other driver has an Android based phone Google can probably prove it, including which app was running in the foreground and what he was typing. :)
It's simply Nuts.
There is something missing...
I am disappointed with the lack of sharks in this article. El Reg you can do better than that. :)
How will AI advances influence population growth? Or is this the other, more mechanical and heavily armed kind of population growth? :D
I doubt this has anything to do with code audit. This looks like a standard vulnerability, probably found by a customer who used some sort of network vulnerability scanner or some other piece of software which used the all zero MAC address causing his switch to crash.
"It sounds terrible. I'm going to have to go to another room."
So it does have potentially good side effects?
I would guess a local BOFH with a reduced beer... er... I mean IT budget might be to blame. :)
True, Shadows over Camelot can get a bit tedious after a while and working as a traitor is complicated but with just a bit of luck you can make Camelot go down in flames. :)
There was a game I played but not really liked that was very paranoia inducing - Panic Station. Some might like it. :)
Saboteur 2 does exist, but I would rather call these two party games, not backstabbing. Try Shadows over Camelot. :)
What about free software for home users, like Putty or Wireshark? Or something that updates often and does not like Microsoft very much like Java or Flash? Seems like Microsoft is trying to go the walled garden iRoute...
Microsoft should learn from Samsung and Apple and just rename W10 to Windows XP 2 plus.:)
Furthermore you can get it on ebay and, lo and behold, they ship worldwide...
So Windows becomes DLC based? You buy a barebones version and then just buy modules you need? Start Menu? Sure, $5. Control Panel? You do not really need it, but we will sell it to you for just $3.
Can the firmware be updated? Sounds like a solid platform for DD-WRT...
Re: "Wouldn't that depend on whether one is looking at the light side or the dark side?"
Which one of has cookies? :)
"Perhaps one day we’ll all be thinking emails directly to one another - hopefully with hilarious results."
Lets just hope the autocorrect technology keeps up with this one. :D
Re: Good article, but not entirely accurate
Why don't you create fake traffic on emergency channels with the sole purpose of tracking him when he starts with interference?
No, prices are "per GB per month", so 1TB would be $95 per month.
It is all our own fault.
It seems like we are perfectly happy with Chinese people dieing in the mines instead of us, but when these same people decide to take advantage of having all the mines suddenly we complain.
I believe it is not a problem of us not having these rare earths or the capability to mine them, the problem is that it is much cheaper to buy them from China compared to paying for geographical surveys, digging, paying workers, insuring them against disasters etc.
It is a neverending circle that the greedy companies have drawn themselves into.
How often do I send files over bluetooth? I have never used bluetooth for anything else. I have done it at least once every 3 months for the past 4+ years, sometimes a lot more often. It is great when you have to send a photo or a video to an older handset that does not have net access.
Why is everyone so concerned about Silverlight? What about WebM? Will this mean that IE10 will only support H.264 encoded video even though they announced that WebM support will be available via 3rd party plugins?
An update to enable future updates?
Why doesn't this surprise me? How many Windows updates had that line in the description?
Simply shows how unfinished the product really is. I will not be buying one for myself, at least not before SP2 comes out :).
Aren't all their products "nearly finished", regardless of their name or release status?
I was under the same impression. Even had a visual impression of an ancient KVM switch I used in the old days when mice used to be connected to serial ports :)
Not when you scale it to "100-mJ level via coherent combining".
Perhaps the middle one is actualy two galaxies? I can clearly see two bright centers...
Humwee sized? How about foot sized killer spiders?
Why is everyone afraid of humwee sized spiders? Those I can see and fight against (or run underground). I am more afraid of an army of one foot long spiders crawling from under every rock. They will reach that size much sooner too...
If all cars are driven by computers, how do you hitchhike? Will a computer stop?
