Re: Is anyone really surprised about this?
No, not surprised at all but still wondering why all stories that provide evidence for things that were previously just "common knowledge" get posts like this.
It's the evidence that makes this a story.

What does that mean exactly? On SqlServer a snapshot is a quick file system level "backup" with restrictions on restore (you can have multiple snapshots but can only restore one and must delete the others first). This product isn't like that is it? If not, what does this usage of snapshot mean?
I have the same amount of experience and I'm thinking exactly the same!
If i sell you a sprocket that i day doodles and then a year later patch it to stop it doodling you have a case. If I patch it so it doesn't diddle anymore then that's tough titties. Ask for a diddler if that's what you want!
The other side of this is of course that I'm responsible for someone hacking your engine via my sprocket's undocumented diddler!
The EU didn't mandate that the user experience was fucked up. Plenty of sites manage to pop up a little opt in dialogue. The EU legislation says that sites aren't allowed to track you without your consent.
The sites that behave badly are trying to get people to complain about the legislation because they want to be able to track you without your active consent.
Seems to be working.
The weight of evidence of Google's snooping is far greater than Apple's. Apple predominately monetise through hardware sales while Google monetise through targetted advertising. Snooping is more vital to Google's business than it is to Apple's.
So when faced with one option that definitely snoops as much as possible and one that probably does it's perfectly reasonable to pick the latter.
Don't know about you, I give a toss because it's wrong to discriminate on gender for this sort of role, or indeed for most jobs.
It's the fact they're grid girls that's sexist. Like there aren't any attractive young men that could do that job! Let's get a nice mix of attractive people, all genders and ethnicities and everyone gets to perv! That's entertainment.
Is that what happens? Youtube is full of carefully crafted replicas of copyrighted material?
If I was a painter and you wanted to paint something that looks the same that's fine. But that isn't how this works, the copies take no effort to make, involve no creativity on your behalf and are indistinguishable from the original.
The thing is you love paintings and they bring you happiness. But you seem to think that's all the reward a painter needs.
They were asked a question, the answer they gave was untrue, that's a lie.
If when asked "How old are you?" I reply "10" I'm lying, even though that is the correct answer to the question "How many fingers do you have?". If I say "I have 10 fingers" then I'm not lying but it's clear I'm answering a different question.
They just replied to the question without clearly stating they weren't answering it so they were lying.
Hillaire. Yet the article itself states that only 30% of his tweets were deemed inaccurate by the Washington Post.
I fucking despise what he's doing and how he's doing it. One of the things I despise is how he doesn't care about truth. You won't combat that by making things up.
Aldi don't stock the things they copy so they're not "side by side".
I'm not convinced what Aldi are doing is wrong mind, but when it's massive corporation vs small business my gut feel is to favour the small business.
