Just do a search for "and you wont believe" and add all those websites to the list of clickbait creators.
My laptop is unable to run TensorFlow, and so is my desktop at the university due to not having a dedicated non Intel graphics card.
He's only 22 years old! What made him suitable for becoming a CEO of a huge company?
It seems to be that the way to make loads of dosh is to become a lawyer! All sorts of lawsuits are being filed and opposed. Is this some sort of conspiracy to help lawyers become rich?
Using those two together should hopefully be a Lightroom and Photoshop killer, especially since they are both available for Windows as well.
It is annoying when a popular software changes hands, sometimes the new owner totally ruin the software to make it bloatware and phone home with all sorts of data. One example I remember was Quickpic on Android. I can understand that the original owner has probably been promised loads of cash and peace of mind if they would let the new owners take over everything.
I think everyone will want to report themselves to ICO because they are so useless.
Bankers and hedge fund managers destroy the economy and get away with it.
Large corporations such as Apple, Amazon and others avoid paying tax and get away with it.
Equifax loses details of millions of people and get away with it.
Some poor guy pays their tax late and they are fined.
“PATIENCE YOU MUST HAVE my young padawan”
I use Greenify to try and kill Instagram, so then I can check it whenever I want. I don't let Greenify do things automatically though.
I have noticed in the past few weeks, Facebook have deliberately been making their mobile website, the m. website rather bloaty. Before it was very quick at loading, but now it is very slow. This seems to have coincided with the release of the Facebook lite application.
I am running Oreo on my mobile, does that mean that I can block Facebook lite from accessing almost anything and it would work?
I remember them at my college in the early 1990s. I remember coming in to the college and the mouse wasn't working properly. Other students also said their mice were not working. Some moron had cut up all the rubber mouse balls in the computer labs. The only mice working were the RM Nimbus ones which were metal.
Does private mode give an empty set of cookies? So, how can they track you? Or is it because of the IP address?
Why do government officials always blame "hackers" whenever they don't want to understand when something does not go their way with computers? Then they call in the police SWAT equivalent.
I hope that the judiciary will agree with the teenager, although I feel like they will side with the government official on this. Most of them do not understand the basics of a computer as witnessed in the questioning of Zuckerberg at congress.
There needs to be special judges who understand computer technology as well as the law who should be the judge of computer related "crimes".
This brings back memories. I remember the early days using bbcnc, cnn and cnet, although this was at university. Icon for reminiscing.
I have taken photos of snow at sunset and they do look pinkish red during the golden hour.
Would they feel a drag towards a certain direction? Do their eyes bulge towards magnetic north?
I have noticed that Facebook has been forcing us to use Messenger in the mobile. I always used Firefox for Android on the mobile to use Facebook. A few times, especially in the past few months they disabled the messaging part from mobile website forcing people to use their Messaging app. Now I know why.
I did find an alternative that works, Metal. However, these tactics by Facebook makes me pretty annoyed at them and it seems rather antu-competitive as well. Instagram is another application that I hate, because you cannot use the web browser to upload photos.
Congratulations Mark! I hope that the articles inspire a positive improvement in the IT sector.
A meteoric rise for crater spotting. :-)
How come they are releasing a new LTS version??? They already have one: Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS
LTS stands for long-term support — which means five years, until April 2021, of free security and maintenance updates, guaranteed.
This has been a lifesaver for me. It works under Android as well, so I can browse YouTube without any adverts on my mobile. It's annoying that it stops YouTube videos whenever I open a new tab or do anything else on the mobile. This is something built into YouTube, it doesn't do it with other videos.
are back in action!
Couldn't they just have searched for an identical breed of dog and then say it's a clone? It will have different personalities anyway.
It would be nice to write down what PoC stands for immediately after the first usage it to make readability easier. Thanks. PS. I did find out that it meant "Proof of Concept".
I will probably move to Linux. I have finally found an alternative to Lightroom and Photoshop (darktable). That was the last sticking point to staying on Windows. Besides, I don't think my laptop will last much longer, I've had it for 7 years already! I will be moving onto Linux.
It seems that the general population has an inability to source different things from different places. For me, Facebook is just about keeping in touch with friends. I don't use it for news. If I want to know what is happening in the tech world, I come here. If I want to know what is happening in the UK, I go to the BBC or the Independent, if I want to feel outraged and demoralised, there's the Daily Mail for that.
Why do people want to have everything in one place? I remember watching in horror as people used to check their email by typing in their webmail provider name in Google. I think for many people, Facebook has replaced Google. Maybe there needs to be studies in UX design to try and get people to use several sources for different things. Maybe this is why supermarkets work, people want everything to be in one place.
So for those who insist on us to stop using Ad block technology, we are doing it to protect our computers. If you stick to static visible images with a link that does not follow you as you scroll down, then we will consider disabling ad block technology. Until then, we won't stop.
Those that want a PC rather than a mobile or tablet will go to the shops for their PC / Laptop. How many of them use AMD? I guess that most of them will be Intel base machines. Most will not have a gaming machine based on AMD Ryzen or Threadripper processors.
I hope that all self driving vehicles have dash cams that are automatically recording and have no way of editing the contents. This way if there is a claim, the camera footage can show the evidence.
Tab warming. I have over 100 tabs open on Firefox. I usually hover my mouse over the tab to check the title, if I need it now. I have a feeling that it will mean a lot of tabs will be loading up in the background.
"That leaves Spectre Variant 1 attacks, in which rogue software can spy on applications, unpatched. It's a good thing this variant is difficult to exploit in practice."
You do know that the NSA, the Israelis, the Russians and the Chinese are now in a race to implement this?
Is there a list of CPUs affected? I have an old Arrandale based Core i3 laptop. Would that be affected? Do we have to wait for the embargo to be lifted? Will Windows 7 be updated as well?
I will muck up trying to release a British citizen who has been arrested on trumped up charges and make his/her sentence even worse.
I have an old laptop from 2011 that has a Synaptics pointing device driver. Would this have the issues?
Imagine adding a solid state drive and installing Linux. That should fly like the wind. :)
Is the fact that the card details were stolen and Lloyds going down around the same time a coincidence?
I hope that they have a good backup system in place. Distributed in different areas around the world. As for the speed of backup, just to paraphrase Tanenbaum: "Don't underestimate the data transfer rate of a van with backup tapes along the motorway."
Seems like the dominos are falling in the fight against online crime.
At the moment, it is the malicious criminals who are exploiting cryptomining. Websites need to get their security beefed up. In times like this, it feels like technology has brought about a lot of woe and worry, that I sometimes wish that I was living in a cave.
I would happily support cryptomining only if the website says that it is how they are funded. Also, it has to be such that the script cannot be hijacked by others. If a website does not mention that they are funded by cryptomining, then I would block it in an instant.
The advertising industry have shot themselves in the foot with all those dreadful campaigns from the early days of advertising; I am talking about the monkey one. Now they are filled with dodgy malware spreading campaign. If El Reg or the Guardian website was funded by cryptomining, then I would be glad to help, only if it was sanctioned by them.
I guess password generators will be cracked as well. :(
Now expect a lot more with AMD's Ryzen chips, especially Threadripper. :) Finally there's good competition.
This will be perfect for those who use Boinc and things like PrimeGrid or Einstein at Home. They need to make a version for the AMD Ryzen Threadripper though.
Also perfect for running some Machine learning experiments.
I used to use Foxit until I noticed that the install file size was humongous. I moved to Sumatra after advice from the peeps here. I have to say that I haven't looked back. So, thank you all. :)
If the cameras work like the ones in the US, then we have a problem. The police choose when to record the video, as has been shown when the police in the US were caught planting evidence because it happened to record 30 seconds prior to pressing record.
Police cameras should be recording at all times the police is wearing his uniform, so if there is an allegation brought up, they can review the footage for the day.
Didn't the sanctions against Iran finish in January last year?
I have used Firefox from the very beginning, and still use it. I am a bit annoyed by the way it has influences from Chrome, but at least, I know that by using the Alt key, I can get the normal menu up. One thing that really annoys me whenever I use a different browser on someone else's computer, is when using Youtube, there are adverts. That always surprises me!
Their mobile browser however needs to be severely optimised. It is rather slow though, it is the slowest thing on my Android mobile :( , it does mean that I don't need to bother with Facebook apps. :)
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.
