Nameless Right To Be Forgotten Google sueball man tries Court of Appeal – yet again

Hoe

Re: comfy chair or thumbscrews

He should lose anyway IMO, a 'spent conviction' is still an conviction, would you want a former bank robber running your bank just because he hasn't been caught for X years, I doubt it.

It maybe legally spent but in my opinion this is valid public information and useful at that.

I seem to remember reading that it was a previous fraud conviction but maybe wrong, if not though I can't really see how this isn't information which should remain public!

Anon man suing Google wants crim conviction to be forgotten

So what you are basically saying is that "ABC" should be sueing Alphabet Corp lol.

Almost sounds like Little Toe sueing Person for damages after being stubbed!

Vodafone's spending pays off - but EE hangs on to UK network crown

Hoe

Re: Vidafone .....

Vodafone, great network?!

Not in St.Albans it's not, they removed their one antena and shafted everyone in the area, I know many have switched since this mess including my dad who with 20 years with Vodafone has switched so we can once again get reception at home, also vastly overpriced compared to competitors based on recent research for my dad's upgrade!

Can't complain at EE been very good for me in every aspect, WIFI Calling is a god-send though I believe the other networks are finally getting involved in this.

Three lost my support with the contact UPGRADE calls I used to get, even when NOT DUE!!!

O2 who I used to work for are just miles behind.

Currently there is no real competition in the UK market IMO, EE in a league of their own which is a shame for consumers!!!

Virgin Media seems to have some great deals these days, also they use EE backbone which is nice, but it concerns me that I could sign up with them then they can switch to another backbone provider at anytime completely changing the offering, same with all the providers who piggy back.

SIM Only don't be tied down best way to go IMO, pay for a handset up front, if you cant switch SIM only save then buy it, get insurance through Bank (cheaper and easier)!

Though not sure about anyway else but even as a Techie I can't find reason to upgrade from an S7 Edge it does everything more than well enough, anyone else struggling to find a good reason to upgrade?!

I can see a slow down in the mobile market coming in the next few years!

Mile per crash for Human's is far, far higher than Mile per crash for Autonomous but that doesn't seem to be newsworthy.

That said I get the concern and it's rightful as there is still a number of unsolved issues some of which are pretty damn big and important and I am not sure Tesla can be trusted to police this roll out which is how it appears to be happening.

Major Rethink...

The world will require a major rethink in the next 100 years probably a lot less, sooner or later we will either have to switch from a money driven economy based or everyone working.

To a recreational driven economy where anyone works by choice rather than necessity!

The problem with that is though, if you destroy money, you destroy power and there is people with far too much power who will do anything to stop that day coming!

Either he didn't know this or he was going for a Darwin!

FBI let alleged pedo walk free rather than explain how they snared him

Hoe

This is a very valid and worrying point, you can bet he'll be public enemy number 1 now with many yet as you say he has been proven of nothing.

Trial my media is BS in my opinion, CONVICTION BY MEDIA would be much more accurate, when was the last time you read a "Guys didn't do anything" story?! They don't exist, it's only guy \ woman suspected of XYZ stories!

His name was not required for this article to be printable, it should have been removed, I just hope in this case he is guilty as then I have zero sympathy for him!

Hoe

Perhaps?!

Sorry but I think this is a given, they have requested back doors in every OS, every Encryption Tool and Encrypted Messaging Service, they even want a back door for standard SSL stuff, there is nobody to request it from with TOR they can just do it.

You still think it's a perhaps?!

If they haven't got a backdoor in TOR then my name is President Hillary George Obama Trump!

Hoe
WTF?

FBI don't want to admit breaking the law or they won't reveal the Back Door they have?

One of the two surely?!

Microsoft sues Wisconsin man (again) for copyright infringement (again)

All to often the big internet based crimes do pay and people pay a portion of their earning back sometimes a huge portion and every now and again someone gets a crippling fine but that is about it. :/

The fact he could pay back 1.13m shows he must have made more as surely he spend some over those years...maybe he has legit businesses I don't know but all to often the numbers show it does pay, very well at times.

They don't get the punishment a drug dealer or a violent criminal does no matter how much they earn.

That said, not sure it's worth it fore the 1 year inside but that was for tax fraud which is about the best way to guarantee prison time!

Secure web? That'll cost you, thanks to Mozilla's HTTPS plan

Hoe

Um break the web, really?

How would this break the web, you said in the article yourself it would only bloke HMTL5 Content!

That means most the old sites which people don't update will be fine as they don't use HTML5, in fact the only ones which do are likely active, it won't stop people doing what they are doing now but it will mean it'll cost to use the new features essentially.

Maybe they should just focus on some of the features like GEO-Location and other potentially private or sensitive items as you suggest.

YES.

Sorry for caps but I am fed up of reading of people falling foul of the law because they think they are hidden online, if you really want to be hidden online you need some form of intelligence, a little money and a paranoid outlook and even then there are oh so many ways to slip up and suddenly expose yourself.

Re: Who appointed America as the world's policeman, judge and jury?

Because everyone's Prison's are over crowded and in the EU Human Right's law's are giving governments a problem.

In the US they don't acknowledge it and though California has just been made my a court of law to reduce their prison polulation by 25% every other state can keep cramming them in.

Microsoft: Here, we'll make it easy for you Gmail lot. Meet our Outlook.com movers

Re: Change of address

I am pretty sure they are referring to Google Apps & Outlook.com both of which allow you to use your own personal domain so no need to change address if this already exists.

Furthermore this will be aimed more as businesses which may have many user accounts in gmail which they would otherwise need to export, import etc.

All in all a good idea then if they want to get Google customers which we all know they do.
