...called a Kite Mark.
Is like EU certification for grown ups.
Just like most ISO certs..especially the like of 9001.
All it shows is you know how to tick a box. For more complex ones, it's how good you fool the inspectors
Why do you think they chose Ireland in the first place?
A government that butters up int's ring, bends over and asks the the tech companies if they would like them to bark like a dog.
And something the EU can afford even more....knowin a several billion settlement will cover any costs.
for Windows 11 (Minimum requirements)
Please name one bit of complex software that is flaw free.
Name one vendor in the world that will support that.
So how do they open source the code without revealing 80% (guess) of their code still used?
You'll find that with most MS products since the days of 95.
XP ended a long, long time ago.
XP SP2 was the one that was supported until "recently"
Windows 10 "versions" are just service packs.
Or just not put them on the network...
So how about a new version of XYZ software that causes the flaw in the OS?
As a business customer, may of been on account, so not so easy.
Granted, you just don't pay if on account, as you don't agree to the invoice.
...so everyone.....time to get them out of the drawer, dust them off and patch.
"or Google for business would be far more secure."
Is that the same Google Docs that got totally owned the other week?
Yes lets put everything in the cloud, patient records, hospital appointments, drug information...
So you're saying 20 year old *nix never needs patching and the current version is 100% compatible with the 20 year old hardware?
So you're blaming a commercial company for not patching a 13 year old OS?
Oh c'mon...it will be spun as
"If we have back doors we can prevent this sort of thing happening by getting into the system and blocking it"
and every other unpatched OS in the world is safe to use.
And in a few years it will all be forgotten.
Nachi / Blaster anyone?
...it shows Word, PowerPoint etc, but surely this are the run of the mill scaled down versions you get on the phone, not the full blown versions?
No cell phone can give accurate information (unless they have GPS information transmitted as well, provided this is also turned on). It can give rough location based on masts. In a city it may be down to a few hundred square metres, in the country it could be a few square KM.
being picky, but it Javscript that's the issue, not http.
To be fair, they will soon be back to using Chrome once they update Java or Flash, when they choose default settings and you end up with McAffee and Chrome, even if you don't want it.
Like anyone other than the most ardent MS bound company or the blinded fanboy is going go with the phones, after they completly shit on those that bought into then with Win8 and then got abandoned.
...all the CDN's blacklist their website and their IP addresses.
Let's see how long they last with 90%* of the internet down.
*made up number, just like all other factual stats.
"When will it sink in to people's minds that voting Tory is a mortal sin"
I don't think Labour are any better, just those involved with Greenpeace, PETA and CND will be beneficiaries, not the general public.
Choose the party* least likely to screw you over and vote for them.
*Why the hell most people still choose the same old pair, especially for local elections, then moan constantly about them is beyond me. IMO if we banned political parties and only had independents, things may be a whole lot better.
May will sweep to victory as the vast majority of newspapers are telling people she is perfection and the rest are just pure evil.
as opposed to the public owned train service, where was a case of "I'll be there sometime in the next week.....hopefully. Please excuse the smell of diesel, vomit and piss when I arrive"
"picking up on small issues which need resolving/could be bigger issues isn't always possible."
Bigger issues = more money from customer.
Welcome to the modern economy.
Does it go where I actually want?
Does it have a free seat next to someone that doesn't stink of piss, booze or both?
Is it rammed for of chavs gobbing off?
Is there a nutter on there waving a knife around?
Do I have to listen to someone elses music?
Do I have to listen to someone elses phone conversation?
Do you get the impression I hate bus travel?
"It would be better to just develop an app that will tell you - accurately - how long your bus is, how busy it is, and how busy your proposed stop is going to be."
The next 6 buses will be full....
"Over the years we've seen multiple examples of organizations getting word of flaws and dragging their feet for months, or even years, before fixing issues that malware developers may already have spotted."
<Cough> 5 years Google docs flaw</cough>
...latest update closes the issue.
Scroll down, Press releases and news tips.
Submit link to article.
Why IDC themselves predicted it will "only" see single digit growth in 2017. So clearly you lot a peddling Fake News!
Indeed I thought the same and a quick right click confirmed it...
Java script can be used to leak all sorts of crap
As stated it warned about going to another URL. This was most likely a plain old vanilla website, breaking out of a TOR external node and spilling it's information.
"Would we allow their agents to infiltrate a trrrst organisation and help to detonate a bomb that kills people, in the hope that they can identify other members of the group?"
We allowed thousands to be killed to protect Enigma code breaking.
We had / have undercover agents in terrorist cells that will allow murders and beatings to happen.
Unfortunately, some people do have to suffer to achieve the wider goal.
"Red China"? Really? Who calls it that anymore?"
Fox News, seriously, along with Communist China.
Re: "It's like if a web browser didn't show the address bar"
You mean like Edge, where it's the same colour as the borders until you click in it and the cursor focus is in the search bar.
No spyware required.
This is how it works.
No one voted for Chairman May to be Prime Minister.
If you are to call my mobile, once it leaves your carrier (or maybe not even that far down, simply the remote PBX) it is no longer encrypted.It is only encrypted in your leg. So all you will do is encrypt the rogue traffic.
Not only that a lot of them only encrypt the RTP, not the SIP....and even more fun, some forget about RTCP as well.
...when the Gold performance is the same as the newest silver, will they rebrand them?
I'm sure H Samuel would love you to get that out on the counter.
"that said, surely it's about time someone studied why so many chaps seem to be able to get the things on, but struggle to have it off. So to speak"
I believe the issue is the blood supply coming in enters via an artery nearish the centre of the appendage.However many of the return points are on the outside and are therefore restricted by the ring. As it's your blood that causes it to swell in the first place, the lack of return prevents it flopping as it were.
So no matter the amount of cooling you do is going to help (other than make it drop off completely).
Hint: instead of using say a curtain ring, use the proper thing! If to embarrassed, go to B&Q and by an rubber "O" ring from the plumbing section... at least you can cut that off in an emergency!
First for those that run their sites:
Explain how a distro stops you clicking on a dodgy URL and entering your valid details?
Ah forgot, Linux is perfect and even comes with free Unicorns and fairy dust and can never be compromised, except when it is, and then it's the users fault, except when it's say a TCP injection attack and then it's errr fact there was a Tuesday in the month.
The bank is called Barclays not Barclay
"Set this as a criminal offence punishable by up to 2 years jail and a fine for the person who sends it as they are responsible."
So do you fine the postroom?
Or the computer illiterate copper?
OR heres a crazy idea....ENCRYPT them whilst being recorded!
