It's Friday. You're killing time before (more) beer!
Learning not to rely on Google would be the obvious lesson...
Then that user has no password and their device isn't secure.
It's just you only get security patches if you buy official products.
IKR!! It's all just THUMP THUMP THUMP these days. And the boys have longer hair than the girls!!!! What's wrong with a nice military march??
If only that were true...
Wow. Seriously? How far up Google's arse do you have to crawl for that to look reasonable?
Permissionless innovation actually...
Is that a change? In my experience that's what happens to all Android handsets after 6 months of use, update or no....
Where the problems are "humans having privacy" and "musicians making money from the music they make". They've certainly put a stop to both of them....
Ah, the name calling part of the homework. Well I'm convinced!!
No you didn't, that was just Google permissionless innovation in battery usage! A completely different thing to what those MS bastards are doing!!!
0laf, don't be silly. This is the equivalent of you driving around with a tanker following you, pouring fuel into the tank at a rate slower than you're using it. The windows laptops here don't fail immediately, they work at full tilt for a period then fail. No one has said what that top load is, or how long it takes to drain the battery and no-one who's commented so far seems to give a fuck beyond jerking their knees at evil MS and moaning about the fact the windows GUI isn't the same as it was 10 years ago.
I am really surprised by this state of affairs, I came here for detailed discussion of specs and power usage!
Yeah, for that brief period after payday before all the direct debits go out....
Of all the taxes I pay the tv licence is the only one that goes on something I approve of, and it's a tiny fraction of the amount of taxes I pay, from PAYE through to VAT. I pay it happily because I've seen what's on Sky, I see the crap that passes for informative TV on 5 and it's clear that the quality of content would plummet without the BBC.
Bunch of cheapskates.
Or they need something to run in the browser.
If you're string contained "40" and your number was 2 and the answer returned was the number 38, what's your problem?
Sorry, but if I can write:
if (a == b) and get true and
if (b == a) and get false then that is terrible.
The problem is that people who think it's terrible write terrible code, then go "look, this is terrible!" without any sense of irony.
Bunch of Cunts
Thank fuck for NoScript.
More like proof that Linux developers have the sense of humour of a ten year old boy.
Dunno, how upset are you by this?
You're going to anyway. And in a lovely fascist "people who disagree with me are a waste of space" kind of way too. Nice.
BOB, is THAT really YOU? What's GONE wrong WITH your KEYBOARD?
.... And rushed to post. Sucker!!
Or you could've just telephoned then. Less googly but equally effective.
Not really. Security on the client is always just a convenience to the user (don't waste their time allowing them to start things they don't have the permissions to finish). Real security has to be on the server. There is no real way of securing the client, it's a browser.
No, having jammed it using the exploit we're all talking about.
You can’t distribute a phone without Chrome, unless you give up Gmail,"
Surely Google and Android are in exactly the same position as MS and IE 15 years ago? Where's the browser choice screen when I start my new Android phone? C'mon EU, quick before we leave, get an antitrust investigation going!!!
We had adverts before the internet. You don't have to track people to advertise to them. For a start you can use the site to identify the type of ads that might work, for example tech ads on a tech news site.
Or you could say the vast majority of terrorists incidents world wide are linked to western imperialism. Learn a bit of history, as usual the situation is far more complex than "islam = bad, capitalism = good".
No, I'm not excusing terrorism, I'm also not giving Western governments a free pass.
If you only read articles written by people you agree with you'll never understand other points of view. I read the Daily Mail (online) most days, not because I'm a racist but because it's useful to see how stories are presented from different perspectives.
Besides, if you stop reading these pieces who's going to point out the flaws?
Aww, did the mean researchers spot (a ridiculous number of) flaws in your beloved OS?
One Devops of indeterminate gender. When we don't know (or care) about gender we can use "they" instead of "he" or "she" to avoid guessing.
Really? You say "Take me home, or somewhere you think is better"?
Ask Google, they're the ones who thought an update mechanism would be too tricky to implement.
Yes, we really should.
Thank fuck for Android's super updates system!
Yeah, Google's keep it working properly and kill it anyway is much better......
What's new is the audit trail of the back and forth between sponsor and researcher where one persuades the other to fuss the figures to fit their agenda.
Make a post showing you know something about Windows 10. Gets way more downvotes than any political bollocks....
This is only half a report as it doesn't compare browser usage of these apis to native app usage of them and the associated risks.
Well that's comparable to Chrome.
Yeah, that's what everyone was saying when Google were dissing MS's security practices!
