IBM's cloud isn't that fluffy.
We have always been at war with Oceania.
Where governments only see what they want to see.
Life in prison in the US or a safe trip to Moscow followed by an accidental slip in the shower a week or so later to keep him quiet?
Which will he choose?
"Winner sighed at one point, and agreed leaking the file would likely reveal the NSA's sources and techniques to its enemies."
It would also reveal illegal surveillance to the American people. A much larger crime in their eyes.
"If he was selling to France and the rest of Europe, why the hell did he supply anyone in the US?
"If he hadn't done that he wouldn't have committed a crime in the US"
The fun begins on p52.
Won't do a damned thing about drones, but you will see Bjork fired out of a cannon.
This only affects people who buy iPhones and as such will not affect the vast majority.
This is the beginning of the end.
Don't fret. The corporations will be happy.
There are certain positions people get into while in bed (SFW) where a metal roof slamming down might cause serious injury.
I've never dreamed of an IT department that big. Ridiculous that they still have more IT workers left over then are in my current company total.
They need a leaner and meaner model.
44 PCIe lanes. Two x16 PCIe GPU's in SLI consume 32 of those lanes leaving 12 lanes for only three x4 PCIe SSD, NVMe, etc.
Keep your 36 cores. This is a kneejerk response to RyZen Threadripper and its 64 PCIe lanes. No serious gamer would touch this limiting hardware.
And when the tablet is shot out in battle, how do you call for help?
Sometimes there's a good reason to have someone with a bit of knowledge on the bridge, especially in the military.
Comments about Jodie Whittaker are hilarious. Considering the story is about a Time Lord, the idiocy being spewed is from the 18th century.
Increasing surveillance of the Internet and phones should fix situations like this, right?
Hmmm, my new PC purchase price is planned to be over four times the average. I don't think they are getting as good as they can get.
I hear the cross-feed to the nearest MILSAT is working perfectly for uninterrupted surveillance opportunities.
Putting aside whether the cargo hold of a plane is any safer for a bomb to explode than the cabin for the moment.
Unguarded laptops in checked bags can be outside of your view for hours. The contents can be searched and copied by TSA or delegates at their leisure.
But I'm sure that has nothing to do with the "threat."
“The arrests have come about as a result of work by the City of London Police and forensic and investigative services provided by Microsoft analysing tens of thousands of Action Fraud reports and working with other affected organisations such as BT, to attempt to trace the source of the problem,” said the City cops in a statement.
Microsoft are now doing criminal investigations? If evidence isn't generated and validated by the plod, I'm not sure that will stand up in a court. (?)
This is the most ignorant and short sighted policy ever.
Fight for your rights now, because your government no longer cares about your freedoms.
If it was an American bank, he'd be on his way to Gitmo.
This is a complicated issue.
Can Jeremy Piven explain it to me please?
This reminded me of a job I saw in 1999. Was a 6 month contract worth $120,000 for a Y2K IT specialist to oversee corporate preparations for the New Year.
Contract end date was December 31st, 1999
I didn't apply as I'd just started a new job, but man was I tempted to get that easy money.
Mrs. Peacock did it in the Conservatory with an iPhone.
"passengers were told to pack their essentials in their hand luggage and get on their planes as planned."
Anyone who travels without essentials in their hand luggage is asking for it. Bags go astray all the time. So often, I assume I'll not have my checked bags for 48 hours and plan accordingly.
The more you tighten your grip, the more merchandise will slip through your fingers.
Libraries are next. The Dewey Decimal System tells people where to go to find copyrighted books which is exactly how The Pirate Bay works.
After that comes cops giving directions.
Every senior manager who signed off on the validation tests should be scheduled to be put on the first manned flights.
Literally put their asses on the line.
But, but, but, GCHQ does this too... I'm confused.
Until it doesn't.
Stuff happens and often the unimagined causes grief.
Redundancies are only guaranteed when they come from HR.
Let's hope they don't change sides half way through a fight.
Who will bet the list of banned organizations will get shorter every year?
They laid off their best and most experienced techs, who, of course, cost the most.
Bureaucracy at it's most short-sighted.
I'll bet some of them baaaaather to complain.
If you are not American, or living outside the USA, you ARE subject to continual and constant monitoring in every medium you care to use.
No job is worth jail time.
When I was laid off in a particular snotty fashion, I got a phone call a week later asking if I wouldn't mind coming in to brief the new IT guy. I declined.
Meanwhile, my Linux machines cost me nothing.
I approve this message.
No, I don't.
Yes, I do.
Reset your devices before handing them over and after getting them back.
Will clear out the clutter as well, as an added bonus.
...works best when it's under my control. No marketers, no government and not held in some data center.
If I choose to give info over to a private business, that's between me and them, with no third party snoopers in the mix. That info should be restricted to travel anywhere else and be deleted after a fixed period of time.
"However, some have commented that the reminder reflects an increasingly draconian and closed social media policy - following the more open attitude encouraged by the likes of the Government Digital Service."
And it won't be long until this 'policy' spreads to regular citizens. Any government that seeks to control speech is not a democracy.
It will slow them down, but not stop them.
They don't follow the law, they make the law. With baby hands in the White House, it will be easy to get laws into power to change this.
Isn't making an example. That's a remarkably light sentence considering the usual reaction.
We don't know the entire story obviously.
This is good for servers, but I still want my 16-core / 32-thread RyZen for my home machine. Or at the very least, a dual RyZen CPU mobo.
Next will come pass keys so the cops can walk through your house whenever they want "just to make sure everything is OK."
Is censorship that WILL be abused.
An extra months pay would motivate some and save the company many times that.
If you can't be bothered to have a human being talk to me, then I'll look elsewhere.
If I wanted to talk to a robot, I'd look up my ex-wife.
As always, the barn door is swinging closed behind the escaping horse.
