UFO's, as in aliens. Gov't cover up claiming it was human controlled drones. Pah !!

Report it to Google and watch the inaction rollout across the platforms.
Sometimes it's like modern games, too much time spend tarting it up and forgetting the actual game play. Which, I reckon, is why retro games are in vogue, the game play is good even if the graphics aren't.
Movie makers should remember that !!
Does that include dodgy weather since NASA et all can't launch 1 craft if 's a bit windy.
Can we get the flags to fly at half mast for the death of freedom?
Simple - don't download foreign films. Stick to pirating Hollywood and you'll be safe :-)
It'll take a week I reckon before hacked firmware is available.
The big question is this though ... I buy one of their drones and go into the wood to practice flying it. There is no internet connectivity so can I use it unlimited or do I find I have no first person video straight away?
What if I buy one and the company goes tits-up? If I can't register, I've brought an expensive target drone.
This is a classic example of a company meaning well but implementing it badly.
I thought it was a legal requirement nowadays to tell you your place in the queue. Especially if you didn't phone a freephone number.
Re: Suggestions for tech firms' hold music
Blondie - Call me
once successful,now couldn't compete and is resorting to IP trolling. Is Apple talking about themselves?
Yeah, but it's not going to be as fun as bonking in spaaaace!!!!! Which let's face it, is why we want to go there :-)
What if I want to livestream self harm to my todger? Allowed or not? What if I pixelate it?
Wow, I'm just leaving hospital and thought I was still wacked out on the good stuff. Just realised I'm actually drug free and el Reg is the weird one this time !!
I thought it was going to about some Google super-mega something they've just launched and it was Tim Cook (and Apple) who were in trouble. Disappointing it wasn't :-(
Why screen scrape someones security details because if they genuinely are allowed access, surely the users could just enter the details into the unofficial banking app directly?
Seems like a lot of 'visionaries' who have an idea but have no clue about implementing it in a legal and safe manner. Should they have invited the 'right' guests in the first place?
Surely the robot needs software to run itself *and* land planes? That's double the effort surely?
Heavy planets are made up of the lighter elements. Huh?
But is the GPL an internationally recognised contract? Because I doubt if they try and enforce it in places like Russia, that they'll get any luck in court.
Why let Alexa near your contacts in the first place? If 'she' needs a list, have a 'safe' list on a spare phone or webmail account. Laziness then realisation seems to be the girls big problem (as well as buying into the whole Alexa con).
Time for them to just ride off into the sunset. I'll just hail them a taxi !!!!
Or is the judge someone who should have been fingered (snigger) downloading adult films so he knows the data is rubbish?
Spanish people working in the afternoon? Will no one think of the siesta?
This is what happens when you have management by committee !!!!
Pity the IT security staff had been let go to save on costs.
Why doesn't Spotify then let me upload music files to benefit from user-uploaded content? They can then get away with music piracy as well (as YouTube, not me obviously).
If only we had a TV company who could broadcast a Rip Off Britain program. Might be the last one they do though :-)
Can't see how they're trying to pin the blame on the paramedics not finding the house on T-Mobile. Surely the caller should say where they are calling from? And if they are lost, don't the emergency services just use the radio to speak to to their HQ rather than phoning someone?
If the whistle blower calls themselves a police employee, it's highly unlikely to be an officer. More likely one of the many civilian support staff they have.
If only they could get someone who can grab headlines and likes a punt. How is Noel Edmund's £50 million money grab going?
Does SpaceX work to Mars hours rather than Earth Time?
contractors leaving - 'et tu Plutus, et tu?'
Only 500,000 spam a week. Luxury !!!!
What they and other anti-spammer systems should do it blacklist these newsletter domains until they get their act together - like asking for email confirmation etc.
Does "Big Data" take apathy on a rainy day into account on polling day?
Sounds like a money spinner for the guys who started it, but what is in it now for the end users?
So, net neutrality will piss off some female Democrats? Pai is sure to do something now. Just not in their favour I expect L-(
"You mean it's all about data collection? No, silly, it's about" ... selling you suntan lotion if you ask about the weather and it's going to be sunny, selling you thermal underwear if it's snowing, etc. etc. Just like their tablets , you are buying something that then sells you stuff. A win-win situation. For someone !!
And don't even start on the spying if you have it in the bedroom. Alexa asking 'I see you're getting frisky, do you need more condoms or headache pills tonight?' !!!!!
But the important question is will an AI lawyer (etc) charge a lot less than a fleshbag version?
If only they had a camera drone overhead to see the bigger picture - drones were a passing fad with consumers.
Shouldn't they talk to their security partners as well?
So they want customer friendly engineers to turn up to corporate shindigs but won't pay travel costs? Probably won't be paying overtime either!!!
It's strange (not !!) that higher-ups on their over-inflated salaries and company cars think that the lesser beings (yes, those who do the actual work and bring in the money) should use their own money to benefit the company so the directors get a bigger bonus.
Seen it in various banks that I worked for - why am I putting in an overtime bill for working all day Saturday and Sunday when a senior manager/director hasn't? Er, cos they're paid enough you feckin' moron !!!
I don't use FB bit
#2 - check the URL. Doesn't FB do the same as Twitter and shorten them (fb.me, bit.ly etc) so how can you check the URL without clicking on it? Stupid list from a stupid man running a stupid company.
Does the US know that when the going gets tough, the Italians swap sides?
No mention of LinkedIn - the business version of FB with the same 'please be my friend because I know someone who knows someone who once worked with you'. Closed that down, even before Microsoft got their hands on it.
And why are Disney getting involved in this? Oh yes, to spy on and track your children.
Good to see they put the brakes on this one so quickly !!!!!
Names *and* date of birth for former spouses? That was why they're now former. I'm lucky if I remember my own !!!
Affected customers have all reportedly been notified.
By their bank saying they are overdrawn and why did they transfer all their money to Romania?
At least they had a few old five pound notes in their jacket pocket. Oh wait....
So, Giles tries really hard to see his officers as everyday heroes? "Tries" really hard but really thinks that they are buffons.
Is there an Australian IR35?
