They have 2 guys fixing stuff and 3 guys sticking random bits on. It will never work correctly.

Wow, what a lovely early Christmas present for Australians: A crypto-busting super-snoop law passes just in time
They just ask "are you Australian?" like porn sites that ask if you are 18.
So just like...
Web sites that ask you if you are over 18 and just trust your answer...
Will we now have sites that ask "Australian yes/no" No? Cool, have some secure email.

Or build things.

""Hard-coded" is bad enough, but I've seen too many really lame security questions"
You don't have to give the real answer. Even the bank has a fake "mother's maiden name" so if anyone digs up the info it's not going to do them any good.

Re: Canadians as puppets
Like there is no one hiding in an embassy in England in fear of being sent to the US after Sweden made convenient arrest request. Join the club.

"Musician could not write music down, for fear someone would use it at their own advantage."
LOL sure. Lucky there was no one who could transcribe music by ear way back then.
Then there are all those people who "work for hire" and have no rights, it all belongs to the boss. Even after you are long dead.
Re: Isn't it bad?
You are going to compare people suffering a slow death from Asbestos to Sony being upset that someone uploaded a video of their kid dancing to some pop song on the radio?
Like maybe what people are calling a loop hole was the intended way it should work even if corporations would like 100% control.

Fixing things before they break
Sales and marketing were competing for who had the newest laptop, by breaking there almost new laptop.
New policy: You get a loaner while your laptop is repaired (it had duct tape holding the battery in).
New laptops go to the person with the oldest laptop, no exceptions.
Funny, no more broken laptops.
Re: Office 2010
No, it's 2007 Outlook that they broke for O365. 2010 works for a bit longer.
Re: Win10 telemetry had one job. And it failed.
For a classroom image that gets re-imaged every week, so there is no need to have it update. I have a custom event filter in Task Scheduler that watches for the windows update service starting and kills it. It is a cludge but it works.
Because the plan is to snoop on average people, and assume anyone they can't snoop on is a crim.
They can do what we have in Canada
Time of use price. Costs double at peak time.
Minion has called all the numbers on the right spreadsheet already.
Uncle Sam, D-Link told to battle in court over claims of shoddy device security: Judge snubs summary judgment bids
Re: D-link products are a bit shit. News at 11.
I had one of their wifi routers. With only 3 devices connected to it I had to reboot it every 2 days. The dumb switch I had was OK.
Re: "Just like the PC market"
"didn't increase prices and made PC bigger "
I thought my current phone at 5.5" was big, I look now and it's tinny. Almost everything is over 6"
Re: International norms
Evasion or avoidance?
You have to check the thickness of the brown envelop full of cash to know. Was that loop hole paid for in full or are they pulling a fast one.
I expect brown envelops stuffed with cash have a role in keeping them tariff-free.
such a deal
I can get a 128 GB 6 for only $50 more then a 6T but I get a free case.
But the 6 is already too big.
Re: I think my next phone will be a Motorola
But their software updates are crap. My G4+ is still waiting for android 8 they promised and security is April. The hardware is good for the price.
Re: It's-a rubbish!
"which some folk state can be also over-ridden by MS. True, or not?"
I have a computer with the service disabled, and a script that will kill it if it tries to start. And yes I have seen that script pop up a few times, most often when you plug in a new device even a USB stick, or a mouse.
Yes home users are great for testing anything domain related, large LANs, SharePoint integration...
But it's OK because the stock went up 10 cents.
They released alpha quality code, and have reached maybe beta now. I have my computer updates paused for now. Not in a rush.
Re: Unbundling the app store would have been the right solution
" Samdroid and install generic Android on it."
Samsung already have their own app store. And a Samsung with generic Android is funny, they have more krud then any other phone. Even have their own assistant. They could remove the google stuff now and have a working phone. It would suck, but it would work.
Re: Fact checking
Maybe if these people didn't feel the need to collect billions in the first place. That money came from someplace.
Re: Five an a half months early...
The GOP don't care about "people worried about surveillance", they are upset about what happens when you do a google image search for idiot.
Re: Installing Windows 7 on Sky/Kaby Lake CPUs
It's almost like they have to change 10 things every spring and fall. Things you can see, that marketing can post screen shots of.
Stop calling he an investor, activist any kind
He is just a corporate raider. He will set you on fire if he can make a buck doing it.
The world will be a little better the day he kicks the bucket.
I can see one purpose
If there is someone at the office that keeps stealing your tea.
Re: Another reference to remember.
Will they do a microsoft and skip from 10 to 12?
Re: Actually , no.
Or what ever the cable/phone company give them for 'free' with their internet.

How long until we have WiFi 7.5bi?

Re: Stop mirroring the media
I hate shaggy dog stories.
Is anyone surprised
FCC holds consult, puts trash bin under mail slot, wow everyone LOVES our plan.
Who was paying for this I wonder?
I'm sure it was not their money paying for the ads.
I see an empty shell going bankrupt in the near future.
Is now ink DRM.
Do they have to block service in Australia
If it's a free service I would think just have a check box "Are you in Australia [ ]" If you check it, OK, Bye.
If you lie and say you don't live in Australia, well not my fault.
This reminds be of the days of 40 bit international versions of browsers with the download page for the better US version where you swear not to give it to China or other "bad" countries. That worked great.
We used to have that crap in Canada too
They had unadvertised BYOD plans, but they pushed the "free" phone. The CRTC cut max contracts to 2 years, required free phone unlocking, and split the phone payment from the service. You pay a "tab" each month for 2 years to pay for the phone, Once the 2 years is over the extra charge is gone.
" It gave too much power to those unaccountable to We The People."
So who has the power now? Comcast?
Not We The People, that's for sure.
Re: Conspiracy theory?
And look what MS did to Windows 8 to try and make phones and computers look the same.
