For most of us common sense isn't the last resort....
That's ok, we're going to get the horse to pay for it!
Because you can leave the country?
I strongly disagree. Stupid laws should be challenged and repealed, running away from them is not an answer.
>> The Desktop Bridge gives developers the ability to create one application for Windows 7 and Windows 10, but to get the benefit of UWP-like installation and Store delivery.<<
Read the fucking article before commenting?
Amen! It's the same tired old shit every fucking time.
It's dull and irrelevant. Give it a rest.
That's another thing that I'd class as art if it was created as such. It's a poignant comment on our consumer society!
Old punks, we value intent above ability!
You definitely won! Because more people voted for the other ones!!!
Doesn't it depend on whether an artist made the machine or not? Or does that make the machine itself art but not the things the machine creates?
Because the definition of art isn't vague enough!!!
Maybe they should use the devices that exist for vaping "other herbs"? They could just vape tobacco leaf then, no need for a manufactured fluid. Admittedly that doesn't give us data regarding long term use but surely, as it only uses the plant, there's less risk of introducing a new bad chemical?
And who is in control of which bluetooth devices the browser can see? The article totally omits any talk of the user interface for this feature. How does it work? Can the browser see any bluetooth device that's active and in range of my pc or does it have to be paired with the pc? Can I "pair" devices with the browser like I do with my phone?
There's no reason this API should be a problem if the user still has control over what is visible. If the browser prompts the user before sharing any information, like it does with the location api, then what's the issue?
Like getting 3 million more votes? Or are you buying into any bullshit conspiracy theory that props up the tangoe'd ones massive ego?
sorry, let me fix that so you'll understand:
Like getting THREE MILLION more VOTES? Or are you buying into any BULLSHIT CONSPIRACY THEORY that props up the tangoe'd ones MASSIVE EGO?
You can run Chrome on Windows, and with it being open source there's no reason MS shouldn't offer it..... So 1 is sorted.
Not sure about your second point.
Also, chromebooks do it much better and are the bomb!
Oi! No French!!! Not in my gaff!!
BACK OFF BRUSSELS!!!!!
...so expect it to be fixed within the next 5 months ..."
Hans 1, maybe you need a break?
No, seems to be about trying to get women to shut up and stop making games.
Care to explain exactly what's distorted and misleading about it? Otherwise you just look like another Apple fan who can't take criticism....
Humours subjective. I thought it was funny! And surely you're happy to see that the Reg isn't completely full of antiiTrump lefty snowflakes.....
Like you did with Obama?
No, they have various underlings to do that. Doesn't make them any less guilty. The police assaulted the miners and travellers during the 80s, do you think they did that off their own backs?
And what about the wilful destruction of the NHS by the "free market"? Or selling off all the council housing stock? That's more wilful destruction. A few angry people smashing windows is really not significant in comparison.
So kind of like a web site then? Wow, cool invention.
How do you know what intelligent people think?
Required reading if you want any idea of what's going on politically in the UK.
Indeed! It says two issues are being addressed by router manufacturers and that Android can't handle the new DNS thingmy. The starting couple of paragraphs sort of describe a windows issue but not in enough depth to be sure that's where the problem lies.
El Reg trying to spin the story as anti-ms to get the comments flowing? Why, are there supposed to be adverts on these pages?
She got millions more votes though. Good democracy you've got there!
That argument kind of leaves me wondering why they'd then vote for Trump. After all he's just another rich celebrity telling them what to do.
He could be a very good president, but only if they get him on the same medication they had Reagan on.
"I guess you did not use MS Access. Probably only serious data analysts really need it, but there is nothing like it in Linux. Libre Office database is a child's effort in comparison"
For fucks sake, you Linux boys really can't spot when someone's taking the piss, can you?
To be fair, that's their answer to everything, not just Android security.
They should've thought about this shit years ago. If this was about MS and not Google these threads would be full of people berating them for not taking security seriously in the first place. Instead we get excuses about manufacturers and operators not facilitating the updates or branching the code and platitudes about how Google are finally putting a kernel update process in place.
Too little and way too fucking late.
Where did I say you did? I said I couldn't believe that they had the cheek to suggest it, which they didn't.
Are we being pedantic about exact meaning or not?
It's outrageous! ACs on here demanding that we grovel for being old! I can't believe they've got the cheek to suggest that.
Because they didn't.
You've been there 400 years. The ancestors of the native people got there 14,000 years ago. Who're the immigrants?
Why? The man's an absolute cunt as far as I can tell and incredibly smug to boot. Giving him tons of cash is only going to make him even more removed from the reality facing those trying to keep the NHS running.
That 14 million could help hundreds of low paid Hospital staff make ends meet, what's he going to do with it?
They could generate that message based purely on your email address. Unless you follow it through and actually re-open your account how do you know they had any more information than that? I know that keeping your email address isn't totally deleting all your information, but if that's all they've got it's not the problem that it would be if they still had everything.
Fancy taking one for the team and actually setting your account up again, just to see exactly what they've still got? (I've never been on facebook, or I would give it a go.)
The article clearly states that it's not supposed to be for general use, it's a concept browser, and yet the comments are full of people moaning about how frightful this is, how old things are better and browsers don't need to change.
How can you be sure that there isn't a better way to do things if you never try anything new?
Wow, what an interesting and novel original post. I'm surprised someone hasn't already mentioned how Windows sucks and Linux rules, considering that I'm sure El Reg has published articles about Linux before. What a breath of fresh air, certainly preferable to the "echo chamber" that makes up most of the internet.
I think you might find that your version of Firefox is too new for the Noscript add in. I have it on my phone but I installed it a couple of years ago and it was an unsupported, install at your own risk job then. Worth digging around for it, it's crude and basic but works.
Yeah, that was mentioned a little higher up. I thought Iron was abandonware but looking at their site there was a release in December, so definitely worth a look! There's an Android version as well!
Either you're very high up in Google management, or you're assuming that what they say is what they do. If it's the second then I'd suggest you become a little more realistic.
Blocking ads doesn't stop google following you around the internet. You need to block Google analytics first. While a site owner only sees analytics for their site, Google can follow your analytics cookie around the web. They don't publicise that much.
... to their management to ensure ad clicks appear bona fide so customers don't complain.
Can't help thinking it'd be better if you had a slider to set the percentage of ads it clicked. Google'll spot that you're clicking every ad pretty quickly (in fact I'm surprised they killed the add-on and didn't just ignore the clicks) whereas if you were to click 0.2% of them you'd look more like a normal user.
Surely that'd do more damage to their business in the long term, it'd be much trickier to pick the fake clicks out of the real ones.
This doesn't seem quite right. Surely the advertisers are the ones losing money, Google still get paid. So while their bottom line may be impacted in the long term in the short to medium they're quids in.
The question is how much will the fake click trail confuse their behavioural targetting, and how long will it take for the fake clicks to impact the effectiveness of the ad campaigns?
Nevertheless, now I know about AdNauseum I think I'll be changing from UBlock.....
Because they have something to debug and need to see how it behaves it on the most popular browser. IMO the Chrome debugger is better than the firefox one for general web dev anyway.
It's not my daily browser but when I'm working in JS Chrome is my default debugger.
IKR! How can you discriminate against people properly without the right documentation?
I've just had a sandwich made with Asda cheese and onion sandwich filler and thick Salt 'n' Vinegar crisps.
It's perfectly possible to exploit people without them being aware that that is what's happening. How many of those doing work for Wikipedia for nothing, on the basis that's it's a charitable organisation, are aware of exactly how big a cash pile the organisation is sitting on? They're giving their time to what they believe is a charitable, knowledge sharing organisation, not Jimbo's massive yacht fund.
Classic attempt to ensure there's no discussion of the actual issue. Don't feed the troll.
No, the issue is the fact that only one party was hacked. Neither of them should be allowed secrets.
