The whole basis of the nomenclature of 4GLTE is that you have 4G as the base technology and `LTE` are the enhancements made over time to give improved performance. The AT&T usage is pretty much the exact opposite!

AT&T slapped down for its '5GE' ads: You don’t have a proper 5G network, so stop saying so, says watchdog
Facebook defers $3bn of infrastructure spend because it's hard to build bit barns when you're working from home
'Non-commercial use only'? Oopsie. You can't get much more commercial than a huge digital billboard over Piccadilly
"I used to enjoy taking photos of other companies' failures," Ben told us, "and sending [them] to my colleagues in the office to make ourselves feel better about our own."
Now there's someone who's honest with themselves! I'm sure we've all felt that little glow as we hear of competitor's tales of woe :)
Microsoft attempts to up its Teams game with new features while locked-down folk flock to rival Zoom... warts and all
Netflix starts 30-day video data diet at EU's request to ensure network availability during coronavirus crisis
Re: Handheld shopping...
Said employee is probably instructed to do the exact opposite ie. Pick oldest stuff first to help with stock rotation.
If I remember rightly one supermarket even made an advertising point of saying "we will always pick the freshest" for online orders because of the public's worry about this very issue.
US government grounds drone fleet (no, not the military ones with Hellfire missiles) over Chinese espionage fears
Re: Easy easy espionage
Not sure why Kevin got the downvotes, you're both saying the same thing... I would imagine no "obvious" backdoor would ever be engineered into a device, but an intentional bug could be left in along the lines of: Buffer overflow here gets remote execution there... Then they can legitimately claim bug if it's discovered.
The whole "lets give exploits cool nicknames" thing is another matter, I'm not sure if techno / sci-fi thriller films are copying reality or vice versa.
Regularly run/walk/ride up the downs around the Needles Battery and there are loads of interesting structures. Of course most of them just look like lumps of concrete or fixings poking out of the earth so some historical context from the article is great. There's also tunnels etc. in the cliff facing Alum Bay which are worth an explore if you're adventurous :)
This is one of those cases where the meaning of a word is evolving over time and usage. Hacker to me means someone with technical skills, whether compromising a computer system or picking an electronic lock. To some people, hacker could mean they simply used their easy-to-guess password.
Image-rec startup for cops, Feds can probably identify you from 3 billion pics it's scraped from Facebook, YouTube etc
Re: Except for the fragility issue...
Pop-up selfie camera could also help with privacy concerns of cameras being activated silently without the user's knowledge. Hard to miss if it appears unexpectedly. (I assume it's motorised?)
Selfie camera occasionally gets used as an ad-hoc mirror, or for checking injuries from falling off the MTB... :)
Fuming French monopoly watchdog is so incensed by Google's 'random' web ad rules, it's fining the US giant, er, <1% annual profit
You had one job, Cupertino: Apple's Intelligent Tracking Protection actually gets tracking protection
Bad news: 'Unblockable' web trackers emerge. Good news: Firefox with uBlock Origin can stop it. Chrome, not so much
"The lowest-level of penalty is applied if you are found guilty of gaining access to a computer without permission (or officially known as “unauthorised access to a computer”). This crime holds a penalty of up to two years in prison and a £5,000 fine"
Applying £5k PER infringement should force even the largest corporation take note. Of course, sending the CEO down for a couple of years wouldn't hurt too :)
Welcome to the World Of Tomorrow, where fridges suffer certificate errors. Just like everything else
2001 fiction set to be science fact? NASA boffin mulls artificial intelligence to watch over the lunar Gateway
Re: Well that ruling has a timespan of about 30 days in the UK
Sounds like a massive trade deficit to me, which means that cessation of trade (which wouldn't happen) would cost the EU £56 billion of exports more than it'll cost the UK.
I suggest you go and learn the difference between percentages and values.
Re: Glass Back? Why?
I can only assume it's for the initial "ooh, it looks & feels lovely" before you stick it in a protective case...
Considering mobile phones are intended to be carried around all the time, they should be designed to take a bang or two. When you inevitably drop it you could try claiming a free replacement on the basis they're not fit for purpose. Good luck with that though :)
"Its just something for people to boast "Look at me and how well I am doing!"
If they do that LITERALLY then you're absolutely right, wankers.
If they have the money to buy shiny stuff and you get bitter and annoyed every time someone pulls one out of their pocket then unfortunately the wanker is you....
Allowlist, not whitelist. Blocklist, not blacklist. Goodbye, wtf. Microsoft scans Chromium code, lops off offensive words
Re: Devoting one's time to petty issues when there is so much to do
"Such a shame to see people at m$ raising such petty issues"
Don't blame companies for this, the only reason large corps dedicate time to this sort of thing is because there are too many "I'm offended" professionals out there. eg. The Tourettes charity complaining about the recent Fringe Festival joke.
Consider this: Person tweets about some innocuous reference in the code - Celeb notices and re-tweets it to billions - Massive publicity & calls to boycott - Billions wiped off share values - Shareholders lose money. <--- This is why.
No it's not Russell Brand's new cult, it's Microsoft's Office crew rolling out their Save Experience
Re: They had to go and ruin it
"If Niantic can't make the game in a way the eliminates that, then the game shouldn't exist."
Try applying that rationale to other areas and you'll realize just how dumb it is:
If roads can't be made in a way that eliminates speeding, nobody should be able to drive.
If knives can't be made in a way that eliminates murder, nobody should own knives.
We're surrounded by hundreds of situations that can be abused, but the vast majority of people don't. You only have to read some of the crazy things people have wanted outlawed just because it personally pissed them off.
There's only 1 rule for personal information: If you upload it to the internet it's not personal anymore.
It will be monetized if possible.
It will be compromised at some point in the future.
It will be used for purposes you never envisaged.
It will be no longer available at some point in the future.

WTF is Boeing on? Not just customer databases lying around on the web. 787 jetliner code, too, security bugs and all
"You could get that information from a simple GPS box attached to the entertainment system network. No need to tap into avionics networks for that data."
Oh sure: Add extra hardware at additional cost, or just tap into the avionics data with a couple of lines of code and a filter/firewall exception....
