Re: Get it right
" Get It Right From A Genuine Site portal. This encompasses a useful "Find Any Film" search engine."
First attempt at using it and it's total rubbish.
Re: all that post-Brexit investment
Can't wait for the £350m a week to hit the NHS, we've all been sitting around planning what we're going to be spending it on!
Re: Obvious omission...
He's up for a lifetime achievement award surely??
"They've got as much money as half the world, scolds charity"
Don't use their stuff then??
oh wait yea, where would we be without Facebook, iphones and Google???
"Unlimited" doesn't mean "infinite"
unlimited - not limited or restricted in terms of number, quantity, or extent.
Clearly unlimited does not mean infinite, but it does mean "without limit or restriction"
I hope the perps aren't Russian
The police there seem quite adept at catching cyber criminals who take on domestic targets.
The same can't be said when it's a foreign bank under attack.
How many users??
"hundreds of thousands of people who downloaded the app"
You spent quarter of a billion dollars and only got a couple of hundred thousand people to download your app???
Investors might want to know where their money has gone, clearly no-one has ever heard of this company or their app.
Yes the news here isn't that Facebook defends it's users privacy.
It's the insurance company weren't going to give Facebook a piece of the action.
Slam it as soon as it appears?
It's stolen data thrown up online by some faceless hacker, there are few less reliable sources of information, it should be easy to discredit it solely due to it's source.
Re: "Talk about toothless watchdogs"
Did someone mention the Advertising Standards Authority ?????
Re: Is this really an option in Indonesia?
"Can we take a look at your books?"
"Come back with a court order."
"OK, here it is."
"Oh. Erm, thats just a gun?"
"yes, it most certainly is"
"now about these books........................"
Funding for research in this country has been pretty poor for ages, more cuts are really nothing new.
The shear amount of money that came from Europe instead of our own government shows how little was being put in by Downing Street.
Now had they been mates from Eton working in Canary Wharf........................
I'd laugh if the grounds team suggested the AuroraWatch guys double checked their data for concordance before making a public announcement.
Re: Is anyone really surprised
Slightly surprised it took this long to hit the skids, mind you they've been quite busy ruining their own network recently.
Re: Perhaps I've missed something here
Game accounts are selling online, some for quite significant amounts of money.
Isn't there more interest from the regulator side?
Even if the engines don't breach regulations, they still lied and under-stated emissions levels.
why in the UK, people have not been able to just return the car as faulty goods?
Well technically the system works really very well...................
"the increase to the PR firm's rate was due to the expanded scope of the firm's work"
and because the PR advisor was now gargling the boss's junk on a nightly basis.
"something in the official statements does not compute"
Maybe because it's all total bullcrap from a public body desperately trying to cover-up it's failings???
Re: Quelle surprise
because a company that advertises in phone boxes and grimey shop doorways is definitely going to be 100% legit.
They won't go away
So teams of highly experienced and very well trained hackers are going to stop what they're doing and go off and take a menial desk job???
I'm sure they'll know full well just how much money can be made on the private (underground) market with the skill set they have.
Perhaps after the Talk Talk scam attempt she did some reading online and found all the articles on El Reg??
or she was just monstrously tired.
This morning I gave the dog my cereal and walked off with his food bowl, sleep deprivation - very bad!
"Concrete attribution however is difficult for groups with solid state support."
Re: First billion dollar fine for robocalling?
Just a pity the British equivalent isn't as effective.
Instead of including individual executives, they'd just take the already liquidated company to court, then make some moronic announcement about "recovering the fine".
Blood from a stone anyone?
Nothing at all....
to do with Pakistani intelligence.
Nothing at all...............................well maybe.
Read between the lines
Hedge fund Corvex Partners has revealed that it owns 10 per cent of the veteran streaming music company
Pandora's shares have almost halved in value over the past year.
They splurged a load of cash thinking they were picking up the next Tech titan.
It's loosing value and they're staring down a big loss.
They want some big sugar daddy to come along and buy the company for a nice premium to get them out of the massive hole they're in.
Re: I don't know why but this made me think of:
I was thinking more:
"There is room", said Councillor Peter Feeney while he was stuffing brown envelopes of cash into his briefcase.
"you can already get a "black box" that logs how you drive."
and they're about as popular as a fart in an elevator.
They're only ever forced on young, in-experienced drivers or those with a very sketchy driving record.
Shockingly Joe Public doesn't actually want some faceless organisation watching his every move.
Re: I cannot
With the obligatory cock spray painted on the front of it.
All down to the people in charge ultimatley
If they operate the friendly "ask me if you have an issue", "no question is stupid" type of business then these would get flagged up, employee's would double check (just a simple phone call) before sending large amounts of money over-seas.
If they're the kind of angry, pent-up moron who barks orders and expects people to fall in line then it's obvious this kind of scam will easily operate.
Re: No it's not, I bought some in a CVS in South Carolina last month
I bought some in CVS last time I was in New York.
They won't ever stop the worst offenders anyway, but I imagine for good PR they have to at least pay lip-service to the idea.
not to mention
The practise of promoting idiot people out of the way, eventually one or several end up in control of something potentially quite important.
Looks like North Dorset got it right, good on them.
Re: Oooo £12
Considering the tablet was on sale in the Black Friday deals for £35 I think?
£12 back on that isn't too shabby at all.
Re: Picture a male Gallus gallus domesticus in its full feathered glory
or a dumptruck for of money being deposited on someones driveway.
Clearly something has been done to change minds.
Re: No pain, no gain
How many complaints could be avoided by not using complete Neanderthals to do the work though?
Blocking storm drains and residents driveways - any halfwit can see thats going to cause a problem.
Designed to Fail??
NK: "Oh look, our satellite made it into orbit, but didn't quite work. We better launch another"
China: "yea ok, that sounds totally plausible, crack on"
I'll look forward to the fix
Next time I buy a new phone, because updates to current models happen so amazingly slow.
A good bargaining chip to have should they want him to roll over and reveal the details of the rest of his crew.
Re: So. How long is the shop banner going to be?
Maybe if you ask nicely they'll give you his phone number, so you can tell the man in person??
He was kidding himself if he thought the music industry weren't going to have his head on a pole.
Why you'd write, release and become the public head of such an obvious target is beyond me?
If you don't believe in it
Does it still exist???
Hackers gained access through a backdoor in our illegal wifi blocking kit.
TNG, DS9, and Voyager overlapped?
Original Trek and Enterprise overlapped in the Generations film
As far as the state of mechanics laptops
Chances are they spend their entire life in the garage and are not connected to the internet anyway.
Especially if the software used isn't updated anymore.
I'd happily take that name if it came with over 20 billion dollars
Re: 32 million??
You could almost argue they don't deserve it back, they'd only give it to the next conman who came knocking.
It wasn't even a good scam, how did he find enough people to part with $32m??
