Re: GDPR says no

I was going to write exactly the same thing.

Note that The Register itself should not be posting the MAC address.

Numbers don't lie: Apple's ascent eviscerates Microsoft

Have had a Mac since February and

dam its so much better than my Windows 7 desktop machine! I thought I would use my Air only when I travel but apart from photo editing in Lightroom and playing a bit of Battlefield 3 I do not touch my desktop any more (even with a 24" screen) and a 3.5Ghz i5 SSD etc.

And windows 8 makes me cry

Zuckerberg blew $1bn on Instagram 'without telling Facebook board'

Germanjulian
Stop

Only time will tell

As all other posters I am also inclined to say "OMG 1 billion for what"....

but then again I did not create a successful Internet startup that is worth billions now so my comment is:

"only time will tell is the 1 billion was worth it."

PS: youtube!

He put the USB stick in... and a few seconds later good old windows autoplay started a picture slide show.

The Facebook job test: Now interviewers want your logins

I deleted all my previous post

Which did take a few hours but now I feel all clean and squeeky and can highly recommend this, you will suddenly be less worried of some "friend" going through your timeline and see a dodgy post from 4 years ago or "facebook" just knowing everything you about.

I did use a combination of this scrip and manually deleting every single post (not just hide) on my facebook that I posted on my wall, photos and on other peoples wall.

My current rule is I keep 5 previous post and then if I post something new I delete the last past.

Oz billionaire says CIA backs Greenpeace

Germanjulian
Thumb Up

Yep no tinfoil required

Enough said,

so some reading buy some books etc.

I really "like" what the US Gov. and CIA been doing in South America the last 50 years to keep the south poor and US Corps rich in South America... one reason they tried to overthrow "crazy" Chaves (good Oliver Stone docummentory on Chaves)

Third of Blighty stuck on snail-speed broadband

London

London has its fair bit of broadband slow spots (less then 3mbit). One of these areas is Rotherhithe/Canada Water whos' exchange is based in Bermondsey.

All the flats/conversion are around 15 to 10 years old but nobody bothered installing a new exchange to server people... I had a speed of 2Mbit.

Now I check broadband speeds before a flat viewing!

No wonder CompSci grads are unemployed

Germanjulian
Stop

mhhh

agree with some points but since when is Computer Science only about programming? Things like databases, UNIX, Architecture Design for Windows systems (Like AD, Password Management, Server Management utilities, Patch management) and Networking and Storage also exist and yes you need to understand IT but you defiantly do not require a deep level of understanding of the Operating System.

I learned a bit about most of these at uni (due to the 3 year time constraint :) ) and a good 30% of my course was Project Management and IT Project design, analysis etc. etc. (that was 5 years ago)

Computer Science is to big to fit into a 3 year course and many many jobs do not require "geeks" like us especially here in the City. Half the IT graduates are not in "geek" jobs here at my work.
