Why is it so tricky to change?
Oh, wow! No, I think I speak for all of us vegetarians when I say we've never considered that animal products could be used for anything other than food or money.
Or maybe it's that people are more likely to sign something that they think might make a difference? If enough people complain about the tallow they'll find an animal free alternative, it's not like it's fundamental to the money making process.
See how far complaining about RIPA gets you......
They think that we'd stop breeding animals for food and dairy and the population would die out. They think that being born to live your life in a cage and then be killed isn't worth it. They think that a smaller population of animals living naturally is better than a massive population living in misery.
Absolutely correct, but why should those who avoid animal products in the rest of their lives have to put up with your food by product in their money?
Suggest you make some chips, a much better use for beef fat apparently.
Fuck sake. Do none of you know any vegans at all? It's not that obscure a lifestyle choice.
It's perfectly possible to get shoes and wallets that don't involve animal products. Many people do. There's no sensible reason for using animal fat when making money, and a lot of ethical vegetarians would be equally outraged. You don't have to be vegan to think that unnecessary cruelty should be avoided.
Who the fuck thinks "I'm making a more robust form of currency, what that needs is some dripping"?
No, it's free rein, as in a horse's reins, not free reign as in royalty. They both make sense which is why you see "free reign" quite a lot.
its not a jpeg.
All through Obabma's presidency he's been blocked and campaigned against by his opponents. Why would you think the same won't happen to Trump? Democracy doesn't stop after an election and people who are opposed to racism and sexism (snowflakes) aren't going to change their minds because of the president.
Get used to it.
Amazon prime comes with free next day delivery. What are you talking about?
jake linked to this article http://hmarco.org/bugs/CVE-2016-4484/CVE-2016-4484_cryptsetup_initrd_shell.html
As it points out in the section marked Impact there may be other unencrypted partitions attached to the system, the hacker could compromise the boot partition for later exploitation, the encrypted disk could be copied for brute forcing at a later date or the attacker could just blat the encrypted disk.
I agree! El Reg should stop publishing tech articles until we've sorted out all the real problems in the world. Or at least until we've stopped the earthquakes!
Oh yeah, I remember. Everyone used to be on here commenting on how it was unfair on MS, how the number of vulnerabilities wasn't important, etc....
No, but another big problem with IE 6 was sites that only rendered properly on IE 6 because that was all they targetted. A lot of developers these days think supporting Chrome is enough. I was on a site yesterday that had a form on it that didn't' work on Firefox (cursor moved but no text appeared as I typed). It worked fine in Chrome though.
It's a slippery slope, the more sites that are like that the more users will think that the only browser that isn't broken is Chrome....
I don't think so. A lot of people use Google to search. When Chrome came out Google pushed it hard on their search pages. A lot of people clicked on the "Make the internet better" link because they thought it would make the internet better, not because they were making an informed choice about which browser to use.
From a user perspective it's a good browser, from a developer perspective it's probably the best, from a security perspective it's dubious.
Numbers are hard. Claiming victimhood is much easier...
Yeah, the media reporting on what he said and did. The bastards!
They both suck all your personal data.
IT is too big a subject to expect every business dev to understand all the low level stuff. Likewise you probably don't want coders who are shit hot at device drivers designing and implementing client apps. Horses for courses.
No, it wouldn't, because a lot of users would just use what was on the phone when they got it.
Android should have to have a choice screen for each bundled app listing some popular alternatives (and a few left field ones no-ones ever heard of). Sauce for the goose and all that....
No, "gross negligence" or "grossly negligent" would both be valid terms. Your knowledge of English appears similar to your knowledge of politics.
No, more damage was done by the FBI guy's letter, giving Trump an excuse to claim that Clinton was back under investigation after early voting had started. Must be some of that election rigging that Trump keeps going on about....
..isn't the insecure browser, it's the stupid AdSense network that's pushing links to malware. It doesn't matter how many browser bugs Google fixes if it's going to keep distributing dodgy Ads.
And as long as people can close down old companies and spin up new ones easily the law is pretty pointless. Maybe it should target the people running the companies instead?
Weren't the exploits in the wild going through Flash player? If so getting Adobe to plug the vector makes sense.
I believe that many versions are affected. MS are trumpeting the fix in the latest Windows because that's what they think you should be running.
If I had a Facebook account and I wanted to share my posts with Admiral what would that have to do with Facebook? It's almost like they're not my posts...
As opposed to all the companies that don't sell anything like.....?
His formatting may be shit and his communication style Trumpesque but IMO he's right about this being a hideous idea.
Where were all the browsers in that list of tested software? Can we assume from their omission that they all parse JSON consistently?
It's no surprise most manufacturers don't give a toss about other OS users.
When they fix something the response is "It should never have been broken in the first place".
Be interesting to see whether Lenovo get more sales after this, or whether they've just pissed money away on a group of people that are never going to buy their products.
Expecting to be able to go to work in a shirt and trousers, with a briefcase!!! It's political correctness gone mad!!!!
This had nothing to do with technical ability, it was about someone dressing too smartly for the cool kids and being a briefcase wanker.
If I can write solid code and communicate effectively with the people I need to why the fuck should I have to dress like you?
...you bullied someone because you didn't like the way they dressed and behaved, eventually managing to make them buy a receptacle that you thought acceptable.
That's one to boast about.
But looking into it it seems they're saying they can store executable code (though limited to 255 bytes in length according to the MS docs) as a string in an atom table. They probably should be able to do this, shouldn't they? How could the atom table code tell if the bytes make up a string or an executable?
The issue seems to be that applications can read those strings and then be tricked into executing them. That's applications that trust their input too much. The idea that the atom tables are at fault because they're the source of that input seems a bit weird.
When you go to retrieve a string that someone else wrote you should validate it. You certainly shouldn't execute it. Wherever it comes from.
From the article: And at -108dBm, it went to "a whopping 75 per cent."
This is just an article about Apple using less than premium bits in their expensive handsets.
If you've got problems with a comment it's best to reply to that comment, otherwise it looks like your responding to the article and claiming it contains conspiracy theories.
As an aside, it seems like more and more people are posting on this site without a basic understanding of it's culture. It has a healthy disdain for all technology companies. If you can't take criticism of Apple, or Google, or MS or Ubuntu or Oracle or whoever, you're in the wrong place.
Put a smile on my face! Not sure chosen is the word I've had used....
That's a list of companies that El Reg disses. The commentards have a much smaller list of targets, Google is rarely on the receiving end BTL. Those of us who dare to criticise Google get a lot of downvotes.
It's so traumatic!!!
What are we going to get? Fucked? Pissed? Twatted? Fired?
And how are we going to fit that thing in the front of the car while we get there?
Hmm, notorious data slurping company posts disclaimer saying they won't spy on us and we're just supposed to believe them?
You can if you like, I'm not minded to give them the benefit of the doubt....
Searching for rowhammer using el Reg's search gives 4 articles apart from this one, one about VMs, one about MS Edge, one about ram and one about Linux.
A Google planty perhaps?
Could you contemplate getting over yourself for a second?
Fourth paragraph in the article:
It isn't even possible to establish whether there ever was a DMCA notice, let alone – if there was – who sent it. Perhaps someone at YouTube had an itchy finger.
What evidence do you have that it was Samsung?
It's nowhere near as efficient in terms of kilo of protein per hectare though. The deliciousness of that protein is a different matter....
Sorry bud, have to take issue with that. A friend of mine had a house right next door to a dairy cattle barn and complained to me on a number of occasions about the amount of noise the distressed cows made when their calves were taken. They were upset for days. The idea that farmers don't take milk that they could sell to keep the cow happy is a lovely one, but I'd need to see some proper evidence to take that as being the norm, not just an "I know better than you" comment.
At the end of the day it's often not cost efficient to be kind. A lot of farmers are good people who take their responsibility seriously, but that doesn't mean it's safe to assume all farmers would put an animals happiness above how much money they can make.
It's fair to expect the Register to keep quiet about something like this, after all it's only an reliably exploitable privilege escalation bug in Linux and Android.
Though I am appalled that there wasn't a mention of some sql server inter service bug you vaguely remember from years ago! You know, for balance.
...to point where I'm willing to question his mental stability.
It's a good job you're not in a position of authority then. There are many of us who question Linus' communication skills, but surely few would make the enormous leap to "questioning his mental stability". He is in control of something that grew way beyond it's original scope to become a product with global significance and with that in mind I think he copes relatively well. To finger this bug as evidence of a health issue is mental.
