Or how about setting up a throwaway VM with some nice FBI wallpaper to give them the shits? Or maybe they be even less likely to mess with one that has an ISIS flag adorning the backdrop.
When I was at secondary school back in the 80s we went to a trip to a hologram exhibition in Bristol. It was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen, there were behind the glass holograms so realistic you had to go around the side to make sure you weren't looking at something in a glass box. There was one of a woman's bottom hung from the ceiling, and of course everyone ran around to see her from the front, but it was the same from both sides! Even more incredible were the in front of glass ones, the best being one of the Milky Way, you could walk into the stars and look down in to a virtual hole to see map of the solar system, it blew me away.
These were all proper laser illuminated holograms costing many thousands of pounds, and the only thing you could buy at the time was a rainbow hologram not even as detailed as you get on credit cards these days. But I'm really disappointed that in the 30+ years since that proper holograms haven't become more mainstream, and I've never seen another exhibition like it.
Even if a wireless system could hacked, as long as it can remind you that you've left the back door unlocked, or an accessible window open, before you leave the house or go to bed, it is useful. Most burglars are opportunistic, they would rather find an unlocked door than to physically break in.
So make sure you have good door and window locks and that something that ensures you are actually using them. Then supplement this measures to make opportunists try elsewhere instead, such as an obvious alarm box or well placed CCTV cameras, even fake ones can be effective.
The bundled digital USB-C "USonic" headphones contain a built-in DAC, and also have active noise cancellation. They also have one additional feature, beaming ultrasound into your ear on first use, to tune an equaliser profile most suited to your age and earplugs.Anything above 8KHz is ultrasound to me now.
Well at least they aren't putting Windows 10 on it.
According to at least one hospital official interviewed tonight; there is no electronic backup, there is no paper backup, more than likely patient data will not be recovered.
Saw it flying over Cardington from St Neots train station (~11.5 miles) yesterday.
They don't call it Flatfordshire around here for nothing.
The dull bit around Cambridge is where people who work in the city can afford to live.
Using drones in this way is still illegal in the UK, which includes CB1.
Jeeezus, perhaps you need to wonder a little further than the first "free broadband" provider that comes up on google. There is a vast difference between good and bad providers, and the fact that they may use Openreach infrastructure has nothing to do with the quality and security of their offering.
It looks like the only serious attempt to remove him from the EPO that had any chance of succeeding, was the tampering with the brakes on his bike.
Why are they using adverts in newspapers about how to recognise fake news? Those who think there is news on Facebook don't use traditional media. The only reason to is to try to convince non Facebook users and politicians that they are trying to tackle the issue.
There is no legal obligation to answer the questions of some junior paper pusher waving an I work in a police station badge in your face. If they can't show you a warrant card, they can fcuk right off.
Not even one cow was killed for the tallow, it's a by-product from animals slaughtered for meat.
...also known as 3D XPoint won't help them in to the black, not for this generation at least.
Well the sales of the units will generate cash, to piss away on lawyers to fight apple. A pissing content they won't win, no matter what the merits of the case are.
No ChromeOS wasn't written from scratch, but it's also not leaching off the Linux name.
Plus having one in your car too - playing a hefty cellular data subscription for the privilege of letting it send everything you say off to a remote server.
I don't want the browser nagging me when I check the temperatures at home on my Raspberry Pi's web server. I'm not going to set it up for https, its only accessible locally or via a VPN.
Optane is a massive disappointment, look back at the early hype from Intel, it was supposed to do to flash what flash has done rust. Now we are staring to see products, they are nothing near what was promised.
Intel could quite easily make the best ARM chips money can buy, but ARM customers wont pay the obscene x86 mark up for them, when there are plenty of other manufacturers close to the same performance point selling for a fraction of the price.
Even if the manufacturer never issues another firmware update, I’m probably good into the future, because it runs apps which will be updated.Riiight, but in the real world...
My Humax box has just told me it's going to delete the YouTube app because YouTube is switching to https and they can't be arsed to update the app.
Then get a decent device which switches automatically.
Disk-makers didn't rush to help Google – in public at least – but Apple had no trouble getting what it wantedGoogle wanted something which would have reduced the drive makers profits, where as Apple wanted something which would increase them.
Well good luck with that, alternatively choose something old without an ECU. If enough people did, the place would end up looking like Havana.
Uber will of course claim they have no need to take heed of any aviation regulations such as licences, flight plans, or safety.
I had to phone HSBC when my old phone died in order to re-enable the security app on my new phone. At the end of the call they suggested I might want to try voice recognition for phone banking, despite the fact they'd spent the last 10 minutes struggling to understand me because I'd almost lost my voice completely with tonsillitis.
As it says, 250 flights of an hour each. You aren't going to do all that without being near a computer at some point.
Or as it actually says; 250 flights of less than 15 minutes, equating to 60 hours.
Do we really need to be worrying retaining the sort of tech firms that inhabit around Silicon Roundabout? Hipsters sucking up funding catapults to write apps with no viable business model, except hoping they might get bought out by Google or Facebook.
The real UK tech industry is based all around the UK, and intends to stay here.
...the password you leave on everything you touch.
Half a billion to work it out it's mainly hype, only suitable for a very small subset of problems, and can be gamed.
How many times did you have to mention 3D Xpoint?
"In addition, we are developing and bringing to market emerging technologies such as blockchain and quantum,..."
Hype and bullshit isn't going to save the day this time.
Although there is no fix such as turning off punycode in Chrome/Chromium, if you are running ScriptSafe it will show you the real URL - and hopefully will have blocked anything nasty the fake site is trying to do.
It seems that the claim behind this story is that AI systems have been trained on datasets which reflect the majority culture in the countries which are developing them. Then this has been jumped on by those eager to take offence and mislabelled as racist. According to them every dataset has be to ethnically/gender/sexually balanced, or even adjusted to be positively discriminatory to certain groups they feel deserve special attention.
tl;dr It's crap.
Lets hope they've let go the person that decided that requiring a reboot after upgrades every other day was a good idea. Other distros don't do this.
Back then saying Vista was a work in progress was an admission of failure, with Windows 10 its a strategy.
Two times = twice
Plastic is NOT biodegradable
You try telling that to the confetti which was a Tesco carrier bag that has been at the back of a cupboard for a few weeks.
Brands aren't even consistent any more. Some of the better named white good manufacturers don't make their lower end models, but farm them out to cheaper companies. It might allow them to cover more market segments, but if those models don't have the same quality and reliability, it's going to bring down the entire brand. See exploding tumble dryers for example.
Well our au-pair had her brand new P10's screen cracked by airport security at Stanstead, so we'll try and argue it didn't stand up to reasonable wear and tear by MAG's hairless apes.
Stanstead security monekys are confused now too, so they've taken to smashing phones in the x-ray trays with a heavy bag, <irony>just to make sure it's not going to explode</irony>.
Ah! Those were the days in the early 90s. 1152 x something in 24 (32) bit colour ON A PC.1152x896, although not sure why it wasn't 1152x864 for 4:3 ratio. Thinking back, it might be because 1152x896 is the most pixels you could fit in before crossing a MB boundary.
My latest Galaxy was already infested with Microsoft software such as OneNote and OneDrive, they were the second things I disabled. Facebook being the first of course.
Australia's major parties are Labo
ur and Liberal, morons perhaps, right wing not so much.
Openreach wholesale broadband charges -= BT Sport payment for football rights
Lets stop everyone else paying for BT's failed TV experiment.
STOP PRESS; the world hasn't ended with A50.
Have a cup of tea and then get on with the rest of your life.
Someone trying to score themselves a free Amazon parcel is going to get a nasty surprise if they capture one of these Turd Birds instead.
Oh and did I forget to mention every other ISP using Openreach's wholesale broadband products, as BT make sure they are paying towards BT TV too.
