Someone fraudulently registered a car to my home address (then got loads of fines/balif letters)
I phoned the DVLA to let them know and they couldnt do anything about it without the guys registration plate. Totally useless ******.
Their solution was to open the post address to this guy >_<
Yeah, on the Koobface article it said facebook automatically check links posted but they were just redirecting requests from within facebooks IP space to a benign page.
Maybe they could have setup some honeypot profiles to test the apps on then monitor what happens?
Agreed and a large part of the case seems to hinge on this...
"# As Mr Clark further explained, if a user wished to retrieve such a large group of files directly from Usenet, he would have to identify all the messages they incorporate, download them one at a time and then use a separate software application to assemble them together. This would clearly be an onerous and inconvenient task and take days to accomplish. It could also be extremely frustrating, as Mr Elsworth himself elaborated. A user might spend a great deal of time and effort downloading the majority of the messages only to discover that one message, the final piece in the jigsaw, was missing. In that event he would be prevented from reconstituting the work and his days of effort would have been wasted."
I reckon it could be done in minutes not days.
"And typing can be a problem as it occasionally chooses keys completely unrelated to where you pressed."
I find this happens if I am accidentally touching the screen elsewhere (usually with my hand I am holding it with), then when you touch to type it kinda averages them out. As it can detect mutli touch they should be able to fix this
No mention of the ease of unlocking the bootloader, installing mods (eg cyanogen), the awesome developer tools (adb!), no hotswaping SD cards, the much trumpeted pinch to zoom (who cares anyway?), the aweful headphones provided with it (par for the cause) and not (unsurprisingly) of the possibility of native/chroot debian armel on the device. From a techie website it does read like a review from the back of the metro. No meat. (Also after you've had it a while and arent playing with it every day - with the right settings you can squeeze 2.5 days out of the battery.
