The commentard farms in Moscow are set to "11" today.

Vodafone could locate anyone to within a few meters years ago.
Remember that “troubled” person arrested in the North East of England ... (Paul Gascoigne went to tease him out with a 6 pack of beer and fishing rods?)
Guess how The Peelers located him.
Any person wishing to view "grumble flicks" would simply access sites hosted outside of the UK.
UK" jazz film" publishers all have access for international customers and even a complete imbecile can work out how to avoid ISP filters.
It sounds like a cosy way of secureing funding to me.
There was a time in Blighty where HMG had to ban subliminal messaging in cinema and broadcast media.
All an of our ad execs would need to do is to hide some nonsense about product/service at the end of the ad and hey presto, your slimline plastic friend will ask you if you want to know more.
Ofcom has better get their regulation head on...
One can only imagine the unmasking of these villains by Jeff Sessions and the accompanying “and i would’ve gotten away with it too if it hadn’t been for that meddling Jeff Sessions”.
I watched Idiocracy last night. It didn’t make for positive viewing.
In 1971 the ITA ruled him out of a takeover of London Weekend Television because of his news empire.
Digger was a "little disappointed" with this decision and has devoted his life to lambasting the British Establishment.
My understanding is that he used many words to describe the ITA which would make a lorry driver with haemorrhoids blush.
Doesn't Now TV have all of their sports channels on it?
You'd only need to pay for the day that you'd wish to watch it too.
Sky's thought of that, ever wondered why the device requires connection to either a phone line or broadband for "premium content"?
£5k was a bargain.
You're right, but you can't.
NDS decryption is only available on Sky hardware and some professional IRD's.
Even Virgin Media customers have a UUID displayed on the screen in-vision during the viewing of sports content from Sky. I'm sure BT Vision will have similar piracy prevention too.
Coming soon; digital watermarking, which can't be obfuscated by simply covering the numbers and is easily detected by automated harvesting.
No, Americans are Septics.
Supposed to be quite good too.
Don't SAAB make a reasonable fighter that can land on carriers?
Thank you for clarifying that.
If I've understood you correctly; this means that Mr Beer is stirring-up for a rival phone ecosystem and bragging about it on Twitter to publicise how clever he is.
But from what others have said, [his] employers' phone eco system is similarly rubbish too.
This bug in iOS, is it really that critical?
I'm asking for a friend...
Will this also pose a problem for those who use TOR?
I can't imagine young people trudging through the back streets of an urban town with one of these monstrosities clamped to their skulls.
Blas-for-you... blas for everybody!

Zen always was the best ISP that I ever had, quite why I went to BT is baffling.
If you live in the UK you have two choices.
And after all that extra cash they don't even have the rights for all of the matches.
...providing they can escape Guantanamo first obviously.
"Does playing the old anti-french sentiment still pay in british media?"
It's all Brexit fodder...
In the real world we've forgiven them for most things including: fixing the targeting algorithm on Exocet missiles used against us by the Argentinians during The Falklands War.
I don’t wish to sew the seeds of conspiracy, but as Google also has the keys to the drinks cabinet of search, how long before all of this bad press will simply vanish?
Does SAAB still make that tactical fighter?
The concerted "global effort" to stop the illegal drugs trade didn't appear very successful.
Your country has very draconian punishment for those convicted of production, supply and financial service.
What would the US do differently to stop cracking?
You should write to your MP about encryption.
I wrote to mine, the response was truly depressing.
Get ready for more of this kind of thing, legitimately.
As soon as publishers estimate the real cost of ad-blocking technology, they'll need to recover the cash from somewhere.

"And I would have gotten away with it too.. if if wasn't for you meddling kids!"
The levels of buffoonery (that I observe) are simply unmatched outside of a Rowan Atkinson or comedy.
Reducing the wright of batteries and motors is a good thing.
Reducing the distance between the seat in front of me and my knees, however...
TalkTalk really do need to sack their PR team.
While they're at it, they probably need to remove 80% of their C level staff too.
Is he suffering from mental illness?
I'm just glad to see that Apple hasn't lost touch with it's customers in these austere times.
It's a phone, with a PDA function and if it wasn't for Android being the satanic love child of Google, we'd all be using [them] instead.
Some marketing plonker must have done too much coke methinks.
Surprised that Wales isn't included.
For those of you who aren't aware, Wales is a nation that's a part of the United Kingdom and has over three million inhabitants.
Admittedly it's fairly dispersed, but Cardiff would have been a good place to start and it's not much further than Bristol.
Welsh assembly; you toothless tribe of final salary pension-drawing elves, you've failed again.
Top marks for style, and... a steam roller too.
A company the size of VF only gererated £2M in 3 months?
Is this a misprint or will shareholders be baying for a new CEO before long?
It's easy to do, take some tin foil, wrap the device, then earth it.
Admittedly, you iPhone won't be much good while wrapped, but you can spare all of your kitten pictures and "jazz film" collection.
Ad vendors use complex algorithms to ascertain the maximum "pod" length that can be run before a viewer will simply go elsewhere.
We only have ourselves to blame.
It's only 9am (ish) and already there's 5 pages of comments.
Ad brokers will be rubbing their hands with glee.
How about running a story with a headline "Linux is better than Windows: Official"?
I'm excited to see where Mr Moffat is taking The Doctor.
...providing that there's absolutely no "love interest" nonsense.
I think it would devalue the show and potentially be the worst thing to ever happen to Dr Who since that John Barrowman spinoff.
I'm not a nuclear physicist and don't know which type of plutonium they pulled out of Windscale back in the 1950's, but it's certainly one or the other.
As nobody set off any old nukes, the AWE need to understand if they will still reach the critical mass to cause a chain reaction... or if they'll open a vortex into another dimension where beasties and people much scarier than the fat Nork bloke (with the bad hair) live.
You may as well just hire a wedding DJ.
Corporate gigs are the worst place to enjoy yourself either as an attendee or a performer.
This old chestnut?
Unless they can buy a tier one broadcaster and simply use their assets it's not going to work.
According to The Independent, Three has gone tango-uniform today.
Delightful news; I'm really happy for the team that made this a success.
Finally it makes launching tings into orbit a bit less expensive and who knows, perhaps India will start to plan for reaching further than just high orbit.
Yes, and their maps are ok (ish) too.
I can only guess the worry of some of the medical students about calling their parents...
It's all gone covfefe.
