So by your logic just throwing another 50 will destroy it? Somehow I would think it's not just that simple.
Sorry, but much of this falls down on Googles non-existent validation.
As a walled garden, would it of been to much for Google to deny store access to say a torch app that wants your call history, read SMS's, access to photos and media?
Because of the utter lack of any enforcement, allow an app access to pretty much everything has become the norm for most people.
Hell Google ones are amongst the worst for it.
...is that the site that dishes free malware with every download?
Can you set your appliance to disable all connections in by default allowing only one or two e.g. https / ssh before shipping.
Upon first login ALL passwords for these ports must be changed before setup can be completed. Once in, before enabling any additional connection ports, a password MUST be entered.
It's illegal to sell fake Levi jeans.
It's not illegal for you to get instructions on how to make your own and then make them for you to wear, so long as you never try to pass them off as genuine.
It's the selling that's the real issue
..in the 1990's very little was connected to the internet. You biggest threat was someone walking up to the pc / device with an infected floppy disk or by direct dial up access.
You can still get it via the website. Just need to dig. Just make sure auto-update is the first thing you kill off.
Yes, some of us still need Java plugins.
"With trademarks, companies have to defend them, as that is the law."
This is not defending a Trademark If it were a Apple, or even a Pear with a chunk taken out of it, I could understand. but it bears no resemblance whatsoever.
This is bully boy tactics and little else.
£150K.......plus free everything.
And then there is a few million a year once you step down / get moved on.
Edge works better with one cloud platform.
Chrome, well SRWare Iron to be precise for some things.
Firefox for the platform I look after
IE for our intranet.
Not a single one work wells with everything.
Edge can screw up with some buttons and input fields
Chrome, decides not connect to legacy kit due to old encryption protocols...after all plain text is better than out of date protocols.
Firefox, is now stuck on a old version because they decide to no longer support Java, but the other browsers don't work correctly.
IE because the intranet fails to render properly.
So basically every single one has issue
98SE, now you're talking.
Agree, as i pointed out in another post about how wonderful Android TV's are, I bout a NowTV box for £10 and never bothered with the subscription.
Looking back a Fire TV may of been better, but at the end of the day it's got iPlayer and that does 90% of what I need.
....to a Smart TV by slapping a £10 NowTV box on it and never paying for NowTV.
So you presume that for the next 10 years that TV is going to get patched and updated?
Find me a 5 year old, let alone 10 year old Android phone that is still fully supported and I'll tell you it's a very rare beast indeed.
If even if a miracle happens and it gets updated for the next 10 years, it will become so completely slow and unusable, you'll simple just give,.
I would say your obsolescence has gone from 10 years down to 5 max now..
I'm all for a bit of yank / Trump bashing where deserved, but sorry to point out a horrible fact. The USofA is one of the most charitable countries in the world, several places higher than the UK.
A few people I know that go to multiple countries have multiple passports. Got a Cuban stamp in you passport, you used to have to forget going to the US, luckily the Cuban's even kindly did separate cards to avoid a stamp in the passport, or how about going between Israel and Jordan or Palestine. Have fun.
How did you know mine? Is it in the list of passwords?
....will have another bunch of whingers complaining that they haven't received the products and the vendor can't be contacted.
So if a member of Hezbollah blow up a bus of Israeli soldiers a terrorist attack?
If the Israeli armed forces bombs a civilian building in Palestine, is that a terrorist attack?
If North Korea threatens to nuke the US if attacked, is that an aggressive threat?
If the US threatens to nuke NK if they are attacked, is that an aggressive threat?
One mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter.
Chances are there are no first class carriages.
Odd the people I know, keep theirs in very secure cases, often up in the loft.
All the houses are alarmed.
..if you can get it for free and make money from it, it's yours. Rights are just an inconvenience and are best being ignored, or better still removed by politicians you bribe...sorry lobby.
Ask Google for further details.
ZX Spectrum Sold to Alan Michael Sugar TRADings.Amstrad make BSkyB boxes, Amstrad sold to BSkyB. BSkyB becomes Sky, Sky major stakeholder is shithead...sorry Murdoch.
Something like that anyway.
Something like the end of the universe collapsing, starting with the removal of the written word.
I remember them fondly from the past, in the same manner I look back and remember measles.
Awww you moderated them just after my slap down. No fair.
It's called Facebook Live.
That's the name of the product.
Hence the capitalisation of the "L"" in "Live"
No, you simply got a down vote, because, well everyone does.
I swear there is one lonely person that spends their entire day doing down votes. See how many posts have just one poor lonely down vote.
although you can't buy a Microsoft phone, you can buy a HP one fairly easily.
also available from most major phone resellers.
Now whether you'd want to invest in one is another question.
"I wonder where exactly my number was obtained from"
Most likely wasn't.
Autodialler + very, very cheap calls (if not free due to phreaking) = dial (10's) or thousands of numbers per day and bingo.
On that subject. Any one had the balls to go into a DIY shop and ask for a short piece of rope, tarpaulin, gaffer tape, a spade and a bag of lime?
What a waste of carpet.
...just find one going your way...Free lift.
As there is a criminal investigation, the may not get off that lightly.
"ike the MoD have networks that have no direct access to the internet so how is Office 365 going to work in situations like that?"
Wow, I bet they never thought of that....
Actually I'll think you'll find 8.1 was the phone version, they fucked that bit up with 10.
"That's called open source. (Or at least source available with reproducible builds)"
I agree with you.
Unfortunately, people are so used to giving away everything about them, most won't even care.
" it only took 800 calls before the system was so backlogged "
Well lets do a quick calculation
Lets go to for 60 second call handling, 30 second wrap, 95% of calls answered within 20 seconds.
800 in 15 minutes or 3200 in 1 hour.
You're looking at around 88 operators, every single night, just in case someone pay this prank.
This of course excludes any genuine calls, so chuck in a couple more.
That's presuming all calls are simplistic, no one has a break and they work at 100% load.
In reality you'd really be looking at 120 to 150 operators per shift.
"So 800 people thought the emergency services needed to be told that the sirens had gone off!"
Or they were phoning the emergency services, to find out why the sirens operated by the emergency services were going off.
And as a policeman once told me, we'd rather a 1000 people phone in with a concern that turns out to be nothing, rather than no one phone in and we are left to pick up the pieces afterwards.
...Fire-eye were working on a fix with MS before going public.
McAffe Virus, sorry Anti-virus, go public before fix.
I know which one I respect more and have done for a very long time.
Don't say things like that, you're getting my hopes up....
That and Foxconn probably have a bit more loose change kicking around.
Pompous git....I guess you missed the key line in that article, that pretty much debunked their own analysis.
"........So doctors' strikes don't necessarily drastically reduce access to health care."
They compared also May of the previous 3 years, with the one affected. What about March, what about June? Did these see similar drops or spikes? How did the weather compare? What were the birth rates? Were there more road accidents?
I could easily say more people died in Late August 2005 in New Orleans than the previous years, and this was due to the 40 year old Virgin being show in the Cinema, ignoring the fact there was a fucking great hurricane around the same time.
..one engineer decided a Proliant 7000 was running hot because the PSU fans were clogged up and full of crap.
He decided to given them a clean with a can of compressed air.
Rule One. Disconnect power.
If rule one is not observed, result will be a loud bang and one very knackered, very expensive server.
....a lot of places now have legal places to do it, as well as sanctioned buildings. For example we have a few underpasses and bus shelters where the best were given the green light to decorate them.
Not to everyone taste, but neither is grey concrete.
...is someone to knock up the Blue max's plane and we can get some real life retro gaming.
"Two hours later, in increasingly dark and spooky conditions with the occasional no-notice speeding cyclist for the added element of terror,"
God help you if you moved outside a town or city. That's what we call normal.
@ Tim, nice bit of patronising there.
My kids have tablets and have occasional access to my phone, yet magically have NEVER run up debts. So I'm your BAD parent...
1. Shouldn't give kid(s) the phone at all - Who said they were using phones?
2. Shouldn't give kid(s) a smartphone until X age. What is age X? My 8 year old is way more tech savy than my 70 year old mother.
3. Shouldn't give kid(s) a smartphone until they know about internet. My kids know all about "internet" and safety. It gets taught at school Catch up. (I also have taught them)
4. Shouldn't leave phone unsecured anywhere. Trust me kids, are very adept at learning your PIN....
Ahh I can't be arsed with the rest.
And I may be wrong, but the issue was it's tied into the Amazon account, so very often you don't even have need the credit card stored on the device.
Oh BTW, last time I looked, most internet fraud victims were adults. My kids probably can spot a scam email faster than most so called grown ups.
As for interacting and supporting their kids. If you are watching them 24/7/365, then you need to back off. Nothing worse then a BAD parent that is overbearing and doesn't trust their kids.
