Re: Has anyone else noticed that these reccomendation algos are basically cancer?

I can understand why you are a anonymous coward. How can you be so braindead as say an algo is cancer? I say that as someone who is watching the chemo drugs dripping into my veins. I hope you never have to deal with this situation. I wish I had only an algo to deal with….

He is a twat

Just a reminder that when he skipped bail, he also shat on the friends that had put up the bail money for him. What sort of shit does that? I hope they throw the twat out. I also don't care how much to costs to keep him in his self caused "solitary". Suffer you self centred alleged rapist fucker.

Without ad's

I couldn't are less about adverts. I just ignore those that I have no interest in. Hell, without adverts, how would I know about things that exist that I would want?

And surely if sites don't have income, then won't they eventually cease to exist? If it comes to that, how many people would work for nowt but expect everything for free? I sure as hell expect to be paid for my work.

Just saying.

I do use Ghostery though.

Re: Really?

Picking your telephone up and looking at it (which you would have to do anyway) is terrifying?

So you dumped 1200 dollars on a telephone that you did not try first? Pull the other one.

I have to ask you how do you read the text messages without picking your telephone up?

I think you are telling porkies.

I would point out to you where you contradict your self in your post but I can't be arsed.

I hope you are trying to be sarcastic (ad doing a lousy job of it), but if you aren't and you know so much about where other mega successful corps are going wrong, I have to wonder why you are not the boss of any of them.

Patch your Android, peeps, it has up to 14 nasty flaws to flog

Ishtiaq
Stop

And people mock me

… because I use iPhone and Macs.

Please remind me, how many apps has Google pulled this year due to them containing malware? And how many has Apple pulled for the same reason?

And let's face it. Apple do release patches quite often. Now how often do android users get patched?

Maybe, just maybe, Apple is better at security?

Just saying

Cheers… Ishy

P,S, I do have a Sony telephone. It looks and feels much nicer than iPhone. I just don't trust it to run apps. They always ask for too many permissions. Don't have that problem with iPhone

Google sued by Gab over Play Store booting

Ishtiaq
FAIL

Is Marc SERIOUS?

Quote from article "The suit [PDF], filed Thursday in the US District Court of Eastern Pennsylvania, claims that when Google suspended the Gab app from the Play Store, it effectively shut out Gab from any access to Android. This, the suit claims, is because the Play Store has become the only trusted source for Android apps on the market" Unquote.

Trusted? Please tell me Marc, Just how may apps has Google pulled this year when they finally twigged that they were loaded with malware? And only after they had been downloaded umpteen millions of times.

Trusted? Oh puhleeze,

Your lawsuit deserves to fail. Not only because Gob is that desperate for users that it will take any old gobshite regardless of whether their views are offensive or not, but you obviously have no idea of what trust means.

Utter Bastards

Just what sort of total fucking scum bastards target a hospital? I can only hope that they die slowly, horribly and just for good measure, painfully.

And where the fuck are the people at GHCQ when we need them? They seem perfectly capable of tracking everyone of us, so why can't they seem to track down the pond life bottom feeding twats that do this type of thing?

Please don't tell me that people shouldn't open this type of what I assume was an attachment to an email. If I worked as a doctor, nurse or in patient records, for example, I can't put my hand on my heart and say that I would not open an attachment called "patient report". Can anyone?

Ok. Rant over.

WTF?

Twats

I have just read the comments to this post. Some of them are appalling.

To the wankers (usually anonymously, surprise surprise) that think it's funny for Google employees to "take it in the ass".

Have you stopped to think for just one minute, indeed have you just stopped to think at all, assuming you are capable of thinking, that these people are people who are doing a job so they can, you know, pay for a home, food and stuff like that. It's the same as the disdain shown to call centre workers, shop assistants e.t.c. Well if you clever twats can do it better, go get a job doing what they are doing and show us how it should be done. Like that is going to happen.

These people don't make the rules up. I repeat, they are just making a living.

And whose fault is it that these companies have all this data to flog on? Yours. Yes it's your fault for using a "free" service. Try and think about that next time you start to whinge.

@ Tim Seventh

Where on earth do you get the figure of five hours before needing to re charge your headphones?

I have used Bluetooth phones for years and never have I had them run out of charge i such a short time.

Rarely I have read such load of pompous drivel. How easy it is to call someone numpties, Have you ever thought that if it wasn't for "numpties" you might not have your ivory tower to sit in? Indeed have you ever thought of anything at all apart from how superior you are?

Well buy some other fucking headphones.Though I have to say I would not be so stupid as to buy any AUDIO gear without HEARING it myself.

Re: No headphone socket = no sale

@jeffypoooh

You bought a second hand telephone for your kid at Christmas? You tight twat. You should be ashamed. New too good for your child?

I have a 6 and have no idea about whatever the fuck is "touch disease".

And you purchased an Android telephone because of no headphone socket? Yea Gods. Well good luck with the updates then. And I hear the security is not up to Apples' standard. But I have to admit that "fact" is based on my mates who own Android telephones. So it may well be wrong.

And finally. surely no one is daft enough to expect audiophile sound quality from a telephone.... are they? Wires are microphonic for heavens sake. Not to mention they tell any would be thief which pocket your telephone is in. And don\t get me started on the bloody wire getting caught up in things and dragging said headphones off your head.
