Personal assistants and those working in public relations were the two most targeted professions, according to Symantec's report

I have never understood what the attraction is of peanut butter and jelly.
I like peanut butter (both crunchy and smooth) and I like jams (jelly? wtf is that about) including grape, but I cannot imagine putting them together in a sandwich, it's just wrong...
Man for instance have been walking into lamp posts while looking at an attractive member of the interesting sex since the invention of the lamp post.
Exactly, they're approaching this from the wrong angle (HA)
It's obvious that lamp posts, telegraph poles, cars, buses and buildings should be outlawed immediately, and removed.
Don't they know that it's Man's god-given right to wander around wherever they want to whilst staring at pointless shit on their expensive toy, without fear of let or hindrance...
"Manufacturer Imperfections" in a Chinese manufactured laptop? Imagine that!
Why do people still trot out this stupid cliché?
A large proportion of the day to day consumer electronics used round the world is manufactured in China, especially telecommunications and networking devices, and yet people still come out with the same bullshit.
I suspect the subtitles are intended to fill Quebecóis language requirements
So... what's the french for
OoooooooooooooooHHH YEEEEEEEEEESSSS YES YES OHMIGOD
(and in case anyone thinks that's a serious question, I offer)
AaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHHH OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUIH OUI OUI OH MON DIEU
I don't know why you got downvoted for that, you are absolutely correct, in the UK, other than a few commentards, there has been very little fuss, and most of the media have actively pushed the party line - surveillance is good for you. As far as the man in the street is concerned there is no story, no problem.
Alistair, I'm the same a you, I'd never heard of Whats App, no-one I know uses it, and the only reason I became aware of it was that I've been receiving some particularly persistent spam claiming to be from them for a couple of months, and the name caught my eye, as we use a piece of software called What's Up, and the similarity made me look twice.
Until the big hoohah about it, I'd no idea what it was for, though...
Are you saying they are creating 40-50GB a day or is that just the overall tally after say 5 years?
Christ no not an extra 40GB / day :)
No, that's what each daily backup tops out at with a few of the businesses which have been going a few years. Some more, some less. I'm talking building supplies, plumbing contractors, network contractors, a couple of restaurants, that sort of business.
I would say though that any business which uses Microsoft products (Word, Excel etc), which a lot of them have to because that's what the firms and customers they deal with use, will generate a lot more data simply 'cos of file sizes...
I would be very surprised if those businesses could do less than 8GB.
How much data should a IFA or a small plumbing firm have then? Do tell.
Well, the ones I support usually backup their accounts, their correspondence (ie PDFs, Word docs, Excel sheets), their email...
I would say the average small business - and by that I mean < 10 employees, generates 40 - 50GB of data which requires daily backup.
Maybe they should make the PCI compliance requirements consistent so that is is actually possible to meet them all and still run a functional public website.
We are not currently compliant, as we refuse to turn off SSL 3, TLS1.0 and TLS 1.1. If we do that, most legacy browsers will be unable to connect to the sites. (and by "legacy" I mean Firefox < v27, Chrome < v29, IE < v11, Safari < v6, etc, etc) so basically a large proportion of our client base.
Also, in order to be compliant with the BEAST mitigation requirements, we offer RC4 level ciphers first, but that's not compliant either...
There is no "national" filter: each ISP implements their own, in their own way.
Afaik, none of them look at filenames. The government requirement is to block access to specific domain names, not to specific filenames.
Look, will you stop being rational and serious about this, it spoils the story...
I must be reading this wrongly...
Gaia's evidence shows that older, metal-poor stars inside the orbit of the Sun at the centre of the galaxy are far more likely to have high levels of magnesium
So if there are stars inside the orbit of the Sun at the centre of the galaxy, how can it be "The Sun at the centre of the galaxy"?

It's the price setting power that is the problem, not the number of firms in the market.
It appears to me that you have a lack of understanding of language. The definition of the word Monopoly is clear:
A monopoly (from Greek monos μόνος (alone or single) + polein πωλεῖν (to sell)) exists when a specific person or enterprise is the only supplier of a particular commodity
