Let's not turn this into Yet Another Conspiracy Theory. The political persuasion of the owners is irrelevant to outcome. Pollsters are looking to get an accurate snapshot of voting intent - they lose credibility if they are proved very wrong.
I am invoking executive privilege here. You have "teaparty" in your email address - and you come here for our tech coverage? ODFO
I guess WPP is offering a whitelisting service of some description - that doesn't require much computational grunt - a few mechanical turks can do the donkey work - This is what JP Morgan did.
For Voda, this is merely an attempt to return to status quo ante.
Until the advent of www. or, to be more precise, Google, advertisers - via their agencies - always controlled the context of their advertising. They can still do this on the internet if they trade directly with publishers and other reputable content providers.
It's a different story when advertisers prioritise performance at the expense of brand safety. Programmatic ad tech is filled with cowboys; search engine marketing will get you into trouble one day, no matter how hard Google tries to clean this act up; and syndication - Taboola / Outbrain - is an enormous cesspit.
Please link us to an example or two and we'll have a look.
unintentional - same bug spotted in search / fixed there.
thanks for the spot - we'll get to it tomorrow.
Courtesy makes the world go around, Snow Wombat. As for your Github demand - I call "Troll".
Ah yes, the Fake Android Scare Hidden News Clickbait Agenda.
And how does that make the article crap, mr smarty pants?
Umm...slip of the brain on our part. Duly fixed.
This is a particularly foolish comment, even for you.
We broke an embargo inadvertently. This happens from time to time. In such cases, we archive and republish for the correct time.
When we do this we archive the article and strip it out. This time we stripped out the article and then archived it - hence the public striptease.
Refreshing to see a shameless plug made openly... we'll give you this one.
Did you actually read our article? As we said - unlike many others - no big deal.
We posted about this in another thread - we'll restore after Easter break.
Noted. We'll put it back after the Easter break. The vulture icon had a secondary use - hover to get menu items we couldn't think where else to put. In cleaning that up, we forgot about the home button utility when on story pages.
In accordance with Betteridge's law of headlines....
The zerohedge China conspiracy nutjob article you are linking to is about site traffic as picked up by Alexa. Alexa appears to be unable to distinguish botnet traffic, or maybe traffic from one botnet, from human beings. That is an Alexa issue and an Alexa issue only.
Declare your interest.
The U.S. applied economic sanctions against Russia in response to the annexation of Crimea. Hacking has nothing to do with this decision.
You are criticising the writer for not conducting a review of the software. But that is not the remit of this article, in which we critically question the claims of Artificial Intelligence capability made by various anti-malware firms.
It is the least you can do.
... and wrong.
16pt is pretty standard for minimum / base text size these days, especially for any site that is responsive (as we are planning to do).
Very cool, thank-you Mr. Bastard.
Our Wikipedia coverage dating from the mid-2000s is what infuriates - or infuriated Wiki-Pedians. Everything else is post hoc rationale...
Usage determines meaning, not dictionaries. Mate, you are onto a losing battle.
Noted... post removed.
Ignorant, marquix, ignorant. And wrong...
... but yes, 'Muslims' is a mistake, which we will correct.
??? This is a stock pic via Shutterstock, which we pay for.
It is called news reporting. There is nothing personal about this.
P.S. No-one writes about enterprise storage for clickbait purposes.
... Violin doesn't advertise with us, ergo we want the company to die and write stuff to help make them die.
A massive logic leap there. And wrong.
We made a mistake in the name and when we knew we had made a mistake we corrected the error. We did not and do not consider this a material change to the article - which would merit notice in the article.
For you to spin that into a fake news accusation is ludicrous.
Sense of humour failure there, Anonymous Coward, posting for the first time.
Harri Koppel, you are Donald Trump and I claim my £5.
Some weird logic there, richardcox13.
Product placement? What a weird reading.
It's the holidays - moderation is slow. Relax!
Freeform Dynamics has been our research partner for 10 years and this research involves Reg readers. So Dale's editorial link to his consultancy makes this an advertorial? FFS, guys.
The Alt-Right echo chamber, more like...
OK you got us, we are the Microsoft Hololens team.
Mighty Google unseated by mockery...what arrant nonsense.
Yes, we made a mistake, now corrected.
Clickbait. Really? Not misleading, not provocative, just the production deskhaving fun with form drumming up a headline about hybrid cloud computing atop an article about hybrid cloud computing.
This is not fertile territory for clickbait - now if we had Kim Kardashian in the headline...
That won't wash.
