That is what Apple claim, and they want you to think.
The US and French response is to find if this is true.
I am not sure why so many people seem to leap to Apple's defence based purely on a one-sided interpretation.
Maplin used to be a place with a great catalogue full of electronic components I could order by post or later on on-line.
If they'd stuck with that as their business model rather than insisting they needed high-street outlets, they might not only be in better shape, they could have evolved into a UK competitor to Amazon.
"If the certificate is invalid then we have no assurance that our communications are secure. We should think of HTTPS with an invalid certificate as the same as using HTTP, anyone could see or tamper with what we're doing online."
Err, no. No it isn't.
A☐ see what you did there.
I want one for the exact opposite reason - because it runs a standard Linux distribution. It should give me a fully loaded remote terminal/tech support machine that can fit in a jacket. Very useful when out and about for 24x7 support.
In fact as a first worlder, isn't London and NYC basically the most identical 2 cities you can pick across countries?
Why pick London at all, if you're trying to appeal to the concept of new music etc. surely Liverpool or Manchester would make more of a statement, and save the pennies.
That is, of course, also it's strongest point.
You cannot prevent a counterstrike by "decapitating" the government.
This hinges on what you mean by "identify an individual".
Your netblock identifies who is responsible for the IP address.
Not who was using it.
See, that is where you went wrong.
(A)D&D is not supposed to be a simulation of a universe that details the rules to cover every situation.
It was intended to be a framework, with some standard rules that you could then use intelligently to cover other situations.
Not a computer simulation.
Came on to say the same thing. It's 2:1 but the general public has been fooled into "bigger numbers are better".
The illegality is for weapons whose primary purpose is blinding, not those that are designed for another purpose but might also cause blindness when used.
Because Microsoft Windows releases never have code named, right?
"Hey boss, we're going to skip Longhorn and Blackcomb and are going straight to Jupiter, OK?"
So what they're saying is: if it's stored in a cloud hosting provider in the UK, it's safe; if it's stored in a cloud hosting provider outside the UK, it isn't.
Except there is this thing called "The Internet" which connects all the clouds together.
No, what they are saying is that whilst it is stored in a cloud hosting provider in the UK it is subject to, and protected by UK law.
Whilst it is hosted outside the UK it is subject to, and protected by the laws of that country.
The problem with this is that it penalises those who have to commute long distances - we're all told to be flexible about where we work, but then required to pay for the privilege.
Consumer hard disk drives have rarely been so expensive and surely not in the last 15 years or so.
I guess you're new to this IT thing aren't you? Speak to those of us who remember 10 and 20MB disks. I remember my first 32MB RLL drive. I also remember spending £500 on a second hand 500MB SCSI disk (yes, these are all MB not GB).
Disks now expensive? Get off my lawn!
You'd think people would know better by now. The British public can be reliably trusted to take the piss...
>>while spending on acoustic guitars and power drills is relatively low
>The end of an era.
I'm old skool - bought an (electro) acoustic guitar a few weeks ago and looking at buying a new drill.
Directors are still liable for criminal or fraudulent activity.
That wouldn't have been a large American oil company would it?
Neither of those links are to do with x86 processors.
Shouldn't it be O2 not 02 - should I trust analysis that doesn't even get the company name right?
It's because there is no guarantee that the USA will not turn on Selective Availability (yes they have stated new satellites won't support it, but who knows...) or otherwise block GPS should it suit them. Having a Euro navigation system means that both consumer and military applications are not dependant on another nations geopolicies.
No, he knows *exactly* what an IT contractor is. It's a self-employed, usually competent and skilled individual who competes directly with the large IT consultancies who donate so much money to political parties, and therefore must be punished to ensure he does not get the same tax benefits that the large companies do.

Considering mine had been down for more than 3 hours when I left the house this morning, that seems unlikely...
"The Register has contacted BT for comment on the outage. We'll update this story if we hear back from them."
You might have to wait 3 days, they can't get online at the moment.
Or they could be trying to bring the price down by 2020 so that it can be standard equipment. Your 2015 Volvo will not be a "new Volvo car" in 5 years time...
It's not as simple as that.
Will French internet companies agree to be censored by the US government? The Chinese? The North Koreans?
If every company on the internet has to comply by every law passed in every country, we will not have an Internet.
USA law specifies as per current interpretation of 14th amendment of the USA constitution (confirmed by supreme court cases) that:
USA law is universal, no other law applies (or exists for that matter).
Not sure how they reach that conclusion from the 14th Amendment which clearly only refers to the USA and it's individual States.
Not often I find myself cheering Microsoft on, but they've got my respect and support for this battle.
Have a virtual pint Microsoft.
Shows the complete idiocy of any automated process. To summarise:
Party A uses a "free for commercial/non-commercial" use image as part of their image A1
Party B uses the same image as part of their image B1
Party B uses an automated process that notices that B1 is similar to A1 and decides this is copyright infringement. It has no knowledge that the matching section of the images is free for use.
Obviously, party B is at fault for not vetting infringement claims before they are sent out, but this is going to be a growing problem.
"as a result of the much higher surface area of woody material that the spirit was exposed to"
So they didn't keep a control sample on Earth that consisted of the same volume of Whisky (note to posters above, there is no E in Whisky) with wood shavings in it?
"Up to 5 minutes power"
So 1 second would have done?
Oh, goody! So where do I plug it in? Assuming the one port is for the WAN cable?
You could read the actual specs and discover it has 1xWAN Ethernet and 1xLAN Ethernet.
£1.2M over 10 years!
No wonder they're closing it down.
(Perhaps you meant £1.2B)
The kind of Manager/Director who needs a Blackberry doesn't understand numbers. That's for Nerds.
The Armed Forces employs approximately 180,000 people funnily enough.
Microsoft licenses are not concurrent. You have to license everyone who needs access.
Possibly all serving soldiers need a license to access DII
Does it come with a blast helmet and light sabre, or do you have to get them somewhere else?
> More like NV didn't get the driver suit compatible enough in time.
They had the driver gloves and the driver hat fine, but the driver socks were missing.
Not if there is a substantial obstacle 10m West (wall, lake, large drop, etc.) of your destination.
Terrapin Farm + Nuclear ambitions = He is assembling an army of shell-backed martial-art trained super troops.
The question is, why doesn't the key actually cut off the engine physically(/electrically)? This is not a function that software should over-ride. It certainly isn't a function that should provide a "hint" to a computer that the fleshy part might like the engine to stop.
Modern IMAP can do most of what Exchange achieves (at least the useful bits from a mail user perspective).
Or to look at it another way, Exchange couldn't even do basic email for that number of users with those resources.
sixdegrees was around pre-2000 and I used it from the UK.
It should be simpler than that. There should be an "Application is Ad Supported" permission that only allows access to retrieve and display ads. No general internet access, no additional permissions required.
I think it translates as "your microphone does not have the required NSA invisible intercept facility/hardware lock override".
I think you are onto something here. Tell the music industry that this will be implemented. As well as standardised, legally enforced percentages of Gross that must be paid into a government managed fund for distribution to artists, composers, etc. from the sales of all music distribution, whether physical or digital.
See how they like being made to pay a decent amount to the creators, rather than using "Hollywood accounting" whilst demanding laws are passed to give more money to themselves, which they have no intention of passing on.
Home taping doesn't kill music... the record companies do.
I heard Stephen Fry is working with Apple to fix this at this very moment.
First you say:
I don't like running with a known vulnerability in my SSL stack for two days, let alone two months. It doesn't take that long to write and test patches.
and then later:
The OpenSSL team owe me nothing, and for all I care can stop their work today - I have the source I need
Then why didn't you fix it yourself, genius?
