A fool and his money???
The latest tech has never been cheap, but the most recent batch of I-things took people's breath away.
Clearly if the latest phone is over a grand most people are holding onto their current one for longer because they aren't willing to pay that kind of money.
and the answer was nothing, because people are still stupid enough to use them.
The same things happens on ticket websites when a popular event is launched.
Some companies just do not care.
Not sure what I'd rather (not) have to be honest
"Yeah, the hatch hit her head so hard it clean ripped her head off the rest of her body."
and then (probably) sexually molested what was left.
because it's unlikely the poor woman died due to bad maintenance of the vessel.
and still it won't be as stupid as Paris Hilton's cryptocurrancy ICO
We're going abroad
It's only news because it's actually costing eBay money and not the poor users.
" 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.
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!
He's up for a lifetime achievement award surely??
Don't use their stuff then??
oh wait yea, where would we be without Facebook, iphones and Google???
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"
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.
"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.
Did someone mention the Advertising Standards Authority ?????
"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.
Slightly surprised it took this long to hit the skids, mind you they've been quite busy ruining their own network recently.
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.
Well technically the system works really very well...................
and because the PR advisor was now gargling the boss's junk on a nightly basis.
Maybe because it's all total bullcrap from a public body desperately trying to cover-up it's failings???
because a company that advertises in phone boxes and grimey shop doorways is definitely going to be 100% legit.
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."
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?
to do with Pakistani intelligence.
Nothing at all...............................well maybe.
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.
I was thinking more:
"There is room", said Councillor Peter Feeney while he was stuffing brown envelopes of cash into his briefcase.
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.
With the obligatory cock spray painted on the front of it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
or a dumptruck for of money being deposited on someones driveway.
Clearly something has been done to change minds.
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.
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"
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.
