How do they even know the access point is on the second or first floor? How do they get that info into their database?

Bull shit allert.
"this is simply the practice of writing a piece of code to do the buying and selling faster than a human being can possibly do it."
No it's not, it's digital coin clipping by parasites. If it was something an average person could do they would be thrown in jail. They are not even speculators.
Fake Corporation science
Tobacco is not the only example of companies suppressing or confusing scientific evidence for short term profit. There was also lead in paint and gasoline as well where pet scientists and propaganda was used to hold off the ban of leaded paint and fuel.
If two scientists say different things, there are lots of people who will just go with what they want to hear without looking at the actual science.
If people still believe Wakefield (and even think he is a victim) there is not much hope.
Checking their FAQ I see I was right...
"What is Streem?
Streem is a "magical" cloud-based hard drive that offers unlimited storage space for your files. All files are securely stored in the cloud and streamed to you on-demand, saving you terabytes of space on your devices."
So soon I'll be streeming 4K video over dial-up to my etch a sketch.
Who at Microsoft is making up the names... and why do they still have a job?
Windows 8.1 Update?
What Windows 8.1 Update? No not a Windows 8.1 Update. It's THE Windows 8.1 Update. But there are lots of things in my windows update history called Windows 8.1 Update?
You would think that an update that "is a new baseline" would be at least 8.1.1 and there would be some way to tell it's installed other then there is a magnifying glass on your not-metro screen.
What are they going to call the next one? Windows 8.1 MoreUpdate? Windows 8.1 Update Again?
And here we go again
Another record company attempt to repeat the "everyone buy another copy of all your stuff" that they had with CD.
Yes lots of people have BluRay players in their home, most are connected to TV speakers, a sound bar, or home theatre in a box.
- So for most people ...
- Will not hear a difference over CD.
- Will only have one player, not in the car.
- Can't use iTunes to ripp it to your phone (a + on record company PowerPoints)
+ can put a whole box set on one disc (a - on record company PowerPoints)
So expect another DVD Audio type whimper.
Re: Windows 8 was built for one reason only
It's not even very good with a touch screen. I have a surface RT and if I am doing anything more then watching Netflex it's kind of crap. If you want to use office or even IE you need the floppy keyboard. The on screen keyboard is crap compared to what I can get for my Nexus 7 as you don't get a choice. You can download a better one as MS will not allow it in their lets pretend to be Apple world.
Without the keyboard you don't have the "It's Windows" advantage, you have something like android except crappier with almost no apps. I could have got a playbook for $99.
"Ty Miller of Threat Intelligence agrees, telling The Register the end user would either have to work out how to retrieve the information from a command line connection to the device"
Command line? Sure if you have a 10 year old DSL modem. My first ADSL modem used telnet, but it was also plain text no SSL.
Any router or current modem has had a web interface where you could check the version, update software...
Biggest problem is when it's owned by the ISP and they lock it down and don't let you have the password.
Re: This comment is totall Bullsh--!
"New PCs may have still had XP on it five years ago. And there's nothing physically wrong with them, either."
Like just about all the netbooks. I've tried Windows 7 on a netbook, useless. If I decide to move from XP it will be something like Mint not Win7 or 8.
Re: why not try coding this shit more slowly and more carefully in the first place?
Before "cloud" Adobe has be one of the Kings of adding useless crap into software so they have something to put on the Box to sell upgrades. Acrobat has not had a useful new feature (other then making it work with the latest version of windows / office) in about 15 years. I do NOT want music and video in my PDF thankyouverymuch and Flash, hell no!
Now with "cloud" I expect as soon as they have enough people signed up they will no longer need to create useless feature upgrades to the software. That could be good if they only need to maintain the software and add feature people ask for, but I expect soon management will decide that that developer "cost center" can be killed off for a quick stock price boost.
Is driving over debris in the road fast enough force it through the bodywork common?
My father lost an oil pan when an over loaded scrap truck dropped a bunch of angle iron in his path. Another car had a piece of iron right through the door into the passenger seat. Could have been the gas tank.
There was also the Ford Pinto, I remember there was someone who parked one in the University lot who had put a danger sign off the back of an fuel tanker on his car.
"said person will very soon be sitting outside the front door holding a cardboard box of their belongings"
1- it was not the employees email account, it was a blogger's.the employee used a mail.ru account.
2- The employee didn't end up fired, they some how ended up locked up in the US.
Sounds fine to me
"The government has bungled proposed changes to UK copyright law by claiming the format of eBooks can be legally changed - for example, from the Amazon kindle format to a PDF."
Good. As it should be.
Your idea of contract law seems to be that any company can opt-out of any law by just including a shrink wrap license or an "I agree" check box.
"Digital Copy" = crap
Half the time the Digital Copy has expired by the time I buy the DVD/Blu-Ray.
The first one I tried was WM crap that I had to email them three times to get a working code, then the Quality looked like a VCD.
UltraViolet? What a joke. Just give me an MP4 file I can play on anything I want. I'll buy it on disc or find something to watch on Netflix (Netflix works on my computer, phone, tablet (even makes my Surface some what useful) BluRay player...) before I'll go near that UV pile of crap again.
Just like the CD
With the switch to digital and HD almost everyone dumped the old CRT and bought a HD flat screen. Much like everyone buying stuff they had on tape or LP again on CD.
This was not "growth" that they could expect to keep going forever, it was a one time spike in sales.
Attempts to repeat it with 3D/Smart TV have failed (along with DVD audio).
