Nothing about Samsung Galaxy Edge???
Why don't they have specific training and certification for those who are doing things like health or social or judicial work on using the computer systems? This way they can be approved to use said systems and it can be definitely known that they know how to use the computer systems required.
The judge or healthcare professional will know not to use hotmail or whatever.
I still have memories of using buses around 2005, when the bus driver would suddenly say it was the "end of the road", quite a bit from the end point. That used to annoy me, because I wasted an Oyster journey on that. I would have to look for another bus.
I would sometimes walk to the next bus stop if I saw that I missed my bus.
Wouldn't Micron benefit from an increase in DRAM prices?
This seems to be the way to make sure that only the manufacturers can repair phones. No more cheap phone repairs, just make sure everyone chucks their old phones away to buy new ones, or pay over the odds so then Apple or Samsung or their partners can repair phones.
Surely there could be a country that can make full use of the technical know-how and allow foreign staff to enter and become the second Silicon Valley in the world. I don't mean India where they just use staff as slave labour.
Unfortunately, everyone have put all their eggs in one basket. It is time to spread them around to a place that looks after data security.
I thought Facebook have said that you cannot tell who has been looking at your profile. So, how do they know that their profile has been looked at by those people?
I bet they weren't fined.
This has been a godsend in reducing the amount of advertising. :)
I have also stopped installing any software that contains advertising and would need internet connection.
However, they do nothing about it. I guess they will do something about one scam if it affects a major politician or a famous person. Since it's the normal guys they can't be bothered. $5,302,890,448 in three years is not a small amount for the ordinary folks. Yet, they are happy to do everything to help the film and music industries to reap extortionate money from the ordinary folks sharing videos and music.
This is going to get worse.
Hmmm... two from Tamworth, one from Norwich and one from Wales. Wales is a rather large area, in fact it's a whole Reg unit in itself. I wonder how many Tamworths can fit in Wales. Whereabouts in Wales?
Quote of the year wrt IoT.
It'll be a fight between Pluto, Goofy, Mickey and Minnie. :p
I have a feeling that Wor-Wic Community College was named by someone who heard of Warwick University, but didn't know how to pronounce it.
Rather than trying to spend a large amount of time and money fighting piracy, there should be more efforts in fighting the scourge that is ransom encrypting malware. The losers in piracy are the movie and music studios. The losers in those ransomware attacks are the ordinary people and also hospitals and other critical places.
I have a Nook e-book reader. I bought a few books from the Nook store. However, when Nook decided to close down its online book store, it meant that the books that I paid for were no longer available and were going to be wiped from my system if I connected it to the Internet. I had to download a special software to remove the DRM from my paid books.
This is what I HATE about DRM.
Lawsuits In Motion as a stand in for RIM?
As above, do Skype phones work on the new system?
Who gets the money?
Considering how badly Microsoft software crashes, e.g. Blue Screen of Death, I have a feeling that Microsoft based robots will for no reason suddenly fall over crashing everywhere.
If they have Linux, then hopefully we can remove the backdoor junk that is installed on Lenovo computers.
I had my Yahoo Mail address book hacked and so people in my address book had spam emails sent to them. I had created the password using Keepass then. I had to change my password again after that breach. Would this be related to the hack, or is this something else?
I always "paint" white on top of number plates rather than blurring them. I guess that is immune to the algorithm.
This is why you have insurance, to cover you for failure. You should have read the small print Spacecom.
How come Foxit Reader has become 46 Megabytes??? It used to be so much smaller! The default install is now over 100 Megabytes!!!! I had to deselect all the options for just a basic pdf viewer. They have removed the real reason we loved Foxit. It used to be fast and small. I will have to find an alternative!
Duck tape will have an echo. ;)
We are all doomed! Trying to get everything to install applications from the Internet is a disaster waiting to happen!
Israel has been at Eurovision for donkeys years.
I had deleted many Android software because they had permission creep. They had a few permissions, and then added more. Another set of software that I refused to update was a calculator that seemed to need access to the phone. It used to be excellent until they decided to team up with a phone answering company that basically hijacks your phone when it rings.
I have increasingly had to delete software. Probably one of the most useful software I have installed on my Android mobile is No Root Firewall. It has stopped me from getting adverts for many installed software. :)
I am sure that if the United States or any of the "Western" countries had lost that money, then SWIFT would have acted a LOT sooner.
So, what will happen to those banks that have lost a great deal of money? Bangladesh isn't a particularly rich country. That amount of money leaves a huge dent in their purse.
I noticed that many of the job agencies would advertise entry level jobs, and yet ask for many years of experience of using so many different packages and programming languages.
I am at university now doing Postgraduate studies. I sometimes have a few classes with the Bachelor students. I have noticed that some of them didn't want to do any programming!!!!
I sometimes wish that I had studied more computer science in my Bachelor course. I hope my Postgraduate course helps.
Could we have a full list of the domain suffixes owned by these domain registrars? This way everyone can avoid using them. :)
If you are really desperate, you could run Windows as a Virtual machine under Linux, which can be used to run your Windows only software if Wine doesn't help.
Sorry, but does this mean that we all have to change our Google, Microsoft and Yahoo passwords?
Yahoo deal with email. If the Daily Fail take over Yahoo, how would we know whether the Yahoo services that are currently running will still be available? I have a feeling that Daily Fail will take over services that it feels are profitable and remove those that are making a loss. Therefore things like Yahoo Mail and Flickr may suffer.
When will The Register stop using Flash for videos?
Some may complain "Why are people publishing details of exploits?" Thing is, I have a feeling that governments and *cough* NSA *cough* have probably been using these exploits.
This is why using computer communications worry me. There is no way to keep a secret. :(
Really??? Why is the coin dated 2014?
Why not just visit m.facebook.com ?
The only thing is that you don't get audio notifications of when you get a message.
Maybe one of the options for the requirements specification should be:
"Use an operating system that is guaranteed security updates for the life of the physical system at no or minimal extra cost, assuming at least 15 years."
I remember they always insisted on me sending them Word versions of my CV. I wanted to send them PDF for security reasons (although I do know about the problems with Adobe!). Maybe if Word refuses to run macros, it will be better. Otherwise, it should sandbox them so then it cannot access any other files.
The problem with Open Access at the moment is the number of predatory journals that are about. There are websites that claim to list predatory journals, but I have heard that some of those websites had secret payments.
What we need is someone well known and reputable like the Wellcome Trust to create open access journals that we can submit to. Predatory journals request large sums of money and they claim to have papers proof read and so on, but they don't.
Isn't this basically GIGO??? Twitter is full of garbage!
I think if you can get it to interface with an Arduino, then you can get a really good system to run as a robot controller with the Pi doing the processing and the Ardruino interfacing with sensors.
By the way, what is the speed of the latest Raspberry Pi like? Is it like a Celery or an Atom or faster?
What they need is a course on how to use computers and the Internet safely. They don't need a full blown computer course in coding. Maybe the bit about project planning and requirements that are needed in other fields.
It seems that the lawyers are the winners in all of this. They must have been raking in fortunes from Apple and Samsung.
I think the lawyers and managers should be sued for encouraging such behaviour. So, can we have a summarised list of the patents that have been accepted and rejected? I have lost track of them.
With all these competing IoT foundations and what have you, we are going to have a big mess. Most of the effort will be spent on making their standards as sexy as possible. This will mean there may be a half hearted effort at security. All the networking experts will be working in a fragmented fashion and so the eventual winner will be so full of security holes (as the current crop) that it will be like Swiss Cheese.
Depending upon how much effort each foundation spent, there may be a time when they will not want to collaborate. So, the basic advice for end users is to wait and see. You may find out that you have absolutely no need for this IoT rubbish. :-)
I have decided to block adverts for a few reasons:
* There are so many adverts on a page that use up valuable bandwidth.
* I had enough of those adverts that have flashing graphics.
* There have been too many dodgy adverts serving malware.
If those issues are resolved with a simple text based advert that is clearly marked and that does not download any other content or involve stealing logins, then maybe the site will be given the green light. Until that time, I will use my adblocking plugin.
It is up to the advertising community to clean up its act.
