They do, and their cores are not ARM standard (well most arent).
Ads are just wrong, and in websites, even worse.
Lets start with tv ads.
They are designed to be intrusive, as the ad slingers think (in part, correctly) that othewise we wont notice them. But then, I just dont want to buy from people who ruin my experience by all flashing, putting volume up, interrupting my viewing, etc. Ads a major cause for me no longer watching tv anymore.
Now, ads made the jump to the internet, and in the worse possible way.
They should NOT be more than graphics and/or videos. The decision to allow them to inject code at essentially run (get in this case) time is horrible. The security implication is terrible.
So we end up with adslingers paying too little for space (mostly, 0£ per view), and paying basically per click. Yet who pays for bandwidth, cpu/gpu and risk? the user.
I would rather pay a certain amount of money monthly and the publishers divide it as they agree (per view, or whatever). They would get more money, and I would be less annoyed.
The publishers are to blame, of course, and The Register is in the naughty list. On my 27" Mac Screen (I had to put this somehow) if I disable ad blocking on the register, >50% of the space is ads.
So it is ads, with content as bait.
How come publlishers are content (not happy, and this does not apply to Thereg) to be paid 0,03-0,07 per page view, and then, on a website that you visit lets say daily, 3 times a day (and that is a lot) you ask 7£ per month? that implies 100-250 impressions and not repeating the same customer.. something that would NOT happen as many many campaigns are repeat ads..
So yes, I am annoyed.
As for MOAB working, it will kind of work as long as publishers follow the law, something Facebook does not. Ads getting out of the picture or at least being polite would be great, but we have to put something in place to replace the income of content creators.
That and "enterprise sata ssd".
They sell these ssds for more than other ppl sell NVMe drives. Makes absolute no sense.
Then they will complain about grey/white boxes, etc
Those that dont like their lot in life may well vote for total chaos, as they did last time. While they are going to be the ones more affected by this, I kind of understand it. The lowest rank employee of the warehouse does not hate the Rich people playing golf and earning millions from traded companies while doing nothing: they hate their midlevel manager.
So I fully expect conservatives to increase their support, and Labour to continue going down.
Of course not, they want him ,so....!
Well, they claim he was the only one with pl/sql skills.. yet they are running plenty of Oracle databases.
I think that speaks volumes about the management...
As I see it, it does not make sense.
He must be the culprit as "nobody else had the skills", say that he trespassed, yet provide no proof... looks sketchy.. IF he had a stolen laptop (good luck proving that) and that laptop was used to do the thing.. then maybe.
Now, why should the judge believe that the laptop was stolen? does he still have it and can the company prove that it belongs to them? after all they signed on it..
As for having a file with all the passwords, it makes absolute no sense, as that file can be transferred... and as for using the mac.. again, no sense, macs can be spoofed.
Not only that, you would also have to tell them how great your product is.. and as you have less money for ads than the crap alternative that also claims to have a great product...
Micropayments are horrible, look at DLCs.
What we need is to subscribe to a service, though google, your ISP or whatever, and they pay a monthly fee, that gets shared between what I use.
Some site would have limited access for such "unmetered access", but it would still be better for most people and it would imporve the experience. Ah.. no Ads if I pay a website.
This is exactly like a shopping mall. You have cinemas and restaurants... not becuase they are a big source of income, but becuase they get customers.
Smae could be said about selling milk and bread at supermarkets. Tesco probably loses money on those products, but good luck trying to have a supermarket and stop selling them!!
Same thing for apple. They rely on the ecosystem.. yet make it very inconvenient for way too many ppl... and they will lose market share. They should be able to afford losing money on proffesional machines that are used to develop SW for their ecosystem.. or that are used by evangelists... not doing so, is shortsighted.
As for the ppl who say their 9 year old pro is ok.. good luck rendering video. A modern top of the line CONSUMER pc with lets say a ryzen 1800 will absolutely leave it in the dust rendering video, etc.
MacOs and Macs in general are the milk and bread sections of the shop for Apple. They dont make the money from those sections, but if you remove them, the clients will stop coming.
So they need to do something.
I would make hackintosh legal, not just tolerated, and focus on desktops/servers/workstations.. but with limited support, and stringent testing.
Nope, the licensing should be based not on cores but a flat license.
That way, cheap machines get a relatively high license cost, while expensive ones get a relatively low cost license.
Also, if you charge lets say 200$ for the inicial license, and then extra for updates.. that would also shift them into expensive machines.
That would no be complete without mandatory TPM modules.. and most hackintosh computers are less secure than a MacBook.. so that is also a tradeoff.
If I were them, I would license it only for computers with no internal battery of more than 500mAh.. and that means servers and workstations. There, sorted.
ALL the certificates mean that.
The problem here is that the miscreants could prove they had control of the domains.. so any cert company would have issued the certs.
And they will insert it into the websites.
Just a few bogus https certificates, and problem solved. They are everywhere anyway...
I had extremely good and extremely bad indian work colleagues in the past.
The thing is how many hours theybhave to work, how much are they paid and if they are valued on volume or quality.
So it is the same as chinese manufacturing quality. They can both produce good quality stuff, but you would have to pay for that..and the outsourcing is done in pirely economic terms, so crap quality.
Because the whole purpose is to give the contracts to the non tax paying corporations!
They will be paid 5£, but HRMC will be charged 70-100£ at least.
I would argue that it was not the tallow itself, but the absolute disdain an abuse of power. the tallow was just an egregious example.
That is a problem of leadership and management.. you can do the same wih a public company.
If you think private companies run everything better, why not outsource the house of commons and the house of lords?
Natural monopolies will always act as such, so it is way better to have then under strict laws and control. At that point, it is just better for them to be part of government, because private industry has nothing to offer, not having a say on policies.
The rail only makes sense as a fully public or fully private (as in we dont care about the good of society, only profit) business... smae for water utilities, and power utilities.
I have yet to see a country that made power utilities private and got cheaper prices and incresed reliability. It is simply impossible, the companies will always try to charge as much as possible while saving on reliability as much as they can get away with.. there is no magic,
Now, things like car manufacturers, or plane manufacturers.. that is different. They will still try to form cartels, but they are not completely natural cartels.
He was great to read, a sad loss for all.
And they are recording the websites he visits, etc.
Well, I just don´t see the point of buying the things.
For the same price, you cound get a 1TB SSD + 32GB of RAM + IC glue and supercaps.
More capacity, probably faster...
But of course they wanted to steal all of that.
I find it funny that you use mongo as a nick... and speak about security!
I am shocked. As I have been by several bugs and "development choices" from subversion.
The whole point is sending messages from a friends phone that got borked.
They have fixed 12 year olds sending an image bomb, but not more serious attacks and worms, as it is as easy as hijacking a mobile phone, and using a custom client to inject the messages.
A nice screen? a 720p see through plastic screen is not nice.
My phone has a 5.5" 1080 IPS gorilla glass screen. And I consider it "adequate", not great... even if the contrast and color accuracy is decent.
I am a user of libreoffice, and was a user of openoffice. I am still a user of Microsoft Office.
The quality difference is huge, sadly.. and I DO contribute with money to libreoffice.
Unless there is a strong reason to go this route, I would avoid it.
It just makes things too complicated.. and with SSD speeds being what they are these days and enterprise SSDs having supercaps for them to finish writing in case of power failure, I just dont see the point of this.
Yes, in some critical infraestructure it might be useful... but that infraestructure already has secure power AND I suspect everyone is using ACID databases properly.. so again, what is the point here?
This looks like a lot like the XBox One special small memory thing.. that they just god rid of.
Allowing code injection is simply madness.
What is the point of the vetting process if can run arbitrary code?
Both the officials and the directors of the contractor should go to prison, and their possesions seized.
Not going to happen.
I use maven, if you know what you are doing, it works ok.
I did have some issues (as in the fucking project refuses to comply or even download the dependencies!) but the problem was mostly my ignorance and a non user friendly way of doing things.
IF DR cannot be proved, I would say it is proved.. not to work.
The thing is, only after analysis of his passwords would the pattern be identified.
So, he is 100% safe from automated mass attacks, he is only in relative danger from targeted attacks.
And targeted attacks would, almost for sure, not go for his passwords in this way.. the normal route is targeted zero-day on banners in linkedin, etc, plus mails. Easier, and cheaper.
So while technically not safe, I would say it is completely safe.
Well, and many of them speak what they THINK is english, but clearly is not... just go to Glasgow...
This is both discriminatory and nonsense.
How come they are hired without proper knowledge.. and if it is needed for the job, they maybe everyone should pass a test!
And if they insist on taking no precautions, send them to prison.
But that is precisely the idea, to give the deals to the usual big consulting companies for kickbacks. They dont care about taxes.
Err, maybe they did not vote for that, but even if they didn't they decided it was ok to go to bed with those ideas. And they decided it was ok because the apalling treatment affected people from abroad.. so...
Racists and bigots.
But hey, people voted for that.
No benefits for brown people, only for local chavs and neds.
So the idea is to exploit foreigners, and smart ones. I wonder how smart can they be if they decide to work for less and with worse conditions than the US, for example.
SAP is non intuitive un purpose.. and the whole transaction crap.. oh my god...
Nand is very reliable. It just wears out, no big thing...
So some ppl are scraping your websites using virtual machines hosted in Digital Ocean eh? Not relevant to the article.
The reason most sane ppl dont want to study tech is because low wages and long hours and stress.
So the solution seems to perpetuate the problem by importing relatively lowly paid ppl while breaking the law....
Well, if you think that native Britons and not all citizens shoudl be the focus, you are a tad xenophobic... just saying...
Yep, that is the problem.
You have to talk with the user, for sure, but many times the problem is not the software, but the process itself.
Disagree. Acting/filming should be a viable business and career choice.
I have a very talented acquitance that can't live from it, and needs a "day job" while collecting accolades, good reviews etc. Ridiculous.
