Oh I'm sure this tax won't just be passed directly onto the consumer with a little extra for good measure...
its scanning 127.0.0.x, I just had a look. It all pops up on the browser debug console.

Re: No comment?
There are some refreshingly open and cheery tech articles on that blog, it is a hidden gem.

there was a bug in

Re: Facefail and not being a product
A lot of people think I'm strange because I don't use LinkedIn. I remind them that they jizzed out millions of user details because they didn't think to sanitise their user inputs.
They don't care.
If they don't care about sheer incompetent oafs, why would they care about competent baddies?

Ah the old "promote him so he can't do any more damage" trick.
Re: How is Porn Harmful
Whatever happened to individuals blacklisting sites using software... :-/
Why is it that adults are being punished for parents inability to understand how to block sites that their kids see?
If I recall, there are auto opt-in age-restricted filters on mobile ISPs already, left over from the last time the government tried to fiddle with the pronz...
"I want to get this fixed before my children go on the internet. I am very worried about them being on social media. We take great care in deciding who babysits our children."
You personally, Matt. *You're* the one who is supposed to be babysitting your children. It isn't up to corporations to make sure they're raising your kids correctly and teaching them the correct lessons. It is up to *you* to ensure their wellbeing. If you want to limit their social media usage, there are *plenty* of ways to do this yourself.
Don't tar everyone else with your lazy brush.
Re: Engage brain
Then this is a waste of everyone's time and money.
The amount of time spent finishing/vetting/implementing this software > the amount of time ISIS needs to change its formula.
Its gov.uk, it will take 3 years to get the software into any system that matters, and by then the chances are we're onto the next asymmetric war in a desert.
Not necessarily. If you have a presence within the EU (i.e. a regional office) and hold data on EU citizens, you must comply with the GDPR. Therefore it applies to most multinationals.
Gee Dee Pee (on me) Arr
There are going to be some interesting GDPR considerations for that database. Who owns it? Is there a right to be forgotten? Who do you send a SAR to?
Re: I'm not sure what's worse
I've had people screenshot emails then paste the mail into a document then attach the document to a support ticket as an attachment, with a the ticket body saying "see attached".

The old ID:10(T) issue often rears its head at my workplace.

720p? That is... rather disappointing for 2017...
Ooooh, I smell gaming/AR opportunities...
I wonder if this means that the NaturalPoint tech or openTrack API will eventually be integrated, or will be allowed access to this tech?
You can all bleat on about privacy if you want, I'm hoping to get rid of my TrackIR...
Also, is this possibly some natural happy byproduct from the hololens too?
I think they used a slug in a shotgun and a rifle round from an m14 too with standard and tracer rounds. Nothing worked until they used a minigun in the desert.
But, from a machine's point of view "This is my banking password (a super secret one)" is impossible to break, compared to (knowing that you have used "Peanut Butter" in the past) trying every permutation of Peanut Butter, replacing characters with numbers/symbols, which will be trivial.

What a pity that other people having fun makes you so bitter. I feel sorry for you, and so does my Pikachu.

Uhhhhh, why would you expose a DB server to an open internet connection?!
I know we tuck it behind the app servers and only 'let in' app servers/terminal access/RDP access from whitelisted clients/servers...
I mean, cloud based - sure it will auto update and send telemetry, but as if Redmond is gonna assume this function is going to work in *any* enterprise that has even a modicum of access control sense...

Pretty much spot on, I'd rather not have to worry about people accidentally spunking my data out onto the net while they pore through it.
Very nice el Reg.

poll tax, surely
For getting ratted at the Christmas party and taking a dump in the punch.
Actually, these games are more like training us to kill Russians - Vaz will thank us when the red tide sweeps across Europe! He'll eat his words I tell ye, eat his words!
Anyway, I also think we should get the RSPCA to put pressure on the government, I can't tell you how many wolves I've killed in Temeria this week. Also dragons, but I don't know whether that falls under the group's remit...
Big publicity stunt?
Or what South Park showed in 'Britney's New Look'.
Either way Sheen has got almost 900k followers on twitter in 20 hours.
This is going to end in two ways, 1) he'll off himself or 2) he'll make more than $2m for this little string of stunts.
He is a bonafide nutjob though.
You asked the question:
"Meanwhile, not all the Reg hacks at Vulture Central have properly fondled an iPad yet. So what does that make us?"
Immune to hype. A fine effort sirs.
I have graduated, and am in the position where I have approximately £24k worth of debt (although, admittedly 8k of that is to Barclays for my Masters degree). Will I get burdened with the tax AND have to pay my loan(s) off?
Sounds like a bum deal to me...
I came here to make a joke about the reception yet people have beat me to it.
Ive just held my iPhone 3G in every way I can think of and it didnt lose any signal whatsoever.
This is rather funny now, they've buggered it!
They do nothing!
I thought that
Until I had a good look. It looks like the whole engine has been pranged, and when you add the cost of finding (unlikely, read hand making) a new wind and grille (as well as repairing however much suspension damage has occurred) it might get serious.
Even then, it wont be original, as the replacements, if not original, will surely hurt the car's value as an antique...
That'll buff out.
Wish they'd write off my loan.
That doesn't make it any less of a consitution.
Just because it isn't written down doesn't mean it isn't there.
Except... it does.
Well, considering that your [perhaps below] average internet user couldn't tell you what flash is, instead it is 'internet video' or the thing that plays music on myspace, or that powers the games on Facebook, it may annoy people who purchase their half-a-grand piece of whizzkiddary and discover they can't do a lot of the things they WANT to do, that they COULD have done on a £200 netbook.
If you need a car every day, but your car is slow, you don't then scrap that car and wait a year to save up the money to buy a faster one. You slog it out, until you can afford to change...

Being just out of the danger-zone...
...Of the 17-22 year old 'idiot bracket', I have to say one thing to you, my friend's dad bought an old boxy volvo estate for my friend while he was learning for two reasons:
1) its so heavy that he can't really be a prick in it
2) theres about 6ft of bonnet before the cockpit, so if he does hit a wall, he'll go through it before the car crumbles and takes his legs.
Also, to those saying about the road test, are you mad? Had there been a road test done on my, sporty, chavvy and all around monster of a 1.8 diesel ford escort estate, then my wheel wouldn't have fallen off on the roundabout on the way home (I did get a new set of front discs out of it though, and some new underwear). Just taking it for a spin for 5 minutes is not unheard of, just to check that everything is bolted back on and such, which can't be found on a rolling road- tracking, wheel balance and things are almost impossible to tell unless you give it a welly. Of course, in the case of a ferrari, this may be slightly different, as giving it a welly often means you spin...
Plus it was just an accident. And yes he will be insured (I happen to know a mechanic owner, and insurance over all the cars they fix/MOT etc is a killer, but a neccesity).
Gutted for the kid.
With the development of these findings, one could flash the system of the car to allow it to receive commands - if they could send commands to the brakes, or engine managemet by simply playing with the packets, then surely, given time you could have a remote shutdown of the vehicle itself.
All you naysayers need only imagine a simple scenario.
High value diplomatic/economic/political (less likely) target, known to have his or her vehicle regularly serviced or valeted. Valet is replaced with assassin. Assassin compromises the car's system.
Team in a car trailing the targets car remotely deactivates the cars engine. Bad times ensue.
Or more worryingly, team in car activates one front brake on the motorway, target car wildly out of control crashes into central median, or some other obstacle, making it look like an accident.
I realise this is all highly conceptual and probably unfeasible, but the possibilities raise serious questions - our computers are all packed full with AV and anti-malware, why not at least put a little bit of security into cars? Just a wee bit. A teensy amount...
Perhaps they just ordered too many 'M's for HMV and needed to get rid of them.
Economical, practical, mammarical.
Well, you asked for it
Democrageddon, the wildly successful sequel, Democrageddon II: The Referendum and then the disappointing threequel, released on the Wii, Democrageddon III: Nintendeficit.
The rights for these games are for sale, by the way, for a pint of ale down the road.
I wish they would wait until after I've written my dissertation.
My essential argument is that cybercrime is unequally legislated for (as opposed to piracy or terrorism) in the international sphere and the EU is really buggering my arguments.
Just because I wear sunglasses and smoke, doesn't mean they'll ever catch me buying even one iPad.
I have this great gadget called an iPhone, and when that reaches the end of its functionality, a PowerBook, and when that gets stretched too far a tower PC connected to my television.
There is no niche. Just as there is no spoon.

This 'flash you iPhone' - it is colloquial people, it means to surreptitiously advertise that you own one.
