Cyber boffins drill into World Cup cyber honeypot used to cyber lure Israeli soldiers

LucasNorth

This Jews have a strong claim to the land they are on just as the Palestinians do, to claim that they should live in Texas is moronic and anti-semitic especially as Israel was created by the UN not the USA you dotard.

I know right, those Hamas guys are just minding their own business, not digging tunnels, not firing rockets, not having an explicitly genocidal founding charter. I don't understand why the Israelis have a problem with them.

MOS-SAD: Israeli govt weighs in on Facebook privacy, promises action

LucasNorth

It's great to know that as soon as you see an article about either Israel or someone of Jewish heritage the comments will be riddled with anti-semitism before you even read them! What a wonderful time to be alive!

Re: Zuckerberg found dead in bed - suspected 'Heart Attack'

Typical anti-semitism, insinuating that the Jews have loyalties not to their own countries but only to other Jews. You are probably a Labour party member.

First A380 flown in anger to be broken up for parts

LucasNorth

"Boeing will soon just-about-match its capacity with the 777x"

This is nonsense, according to the Boeing website the 777x has a two seat configuration capacity of 375 whereas Emirates run the A380 with a two class capacity of 615. Nowhere near comparable.

Re: F1 is a Car Crash

How would suggest a race is shown live more than once? There is nothing at all wrong with having F1 on pay tv, in fact it's much better as there are no ads

Sci-tech wants skilled worker cap on PhD and shortage jobs scrapped

Re: shortage

22k to start and up to 36k. Not quite "peanuts"

If you think that someone with a PhD needs to be earning over 100k to demonstrate that there is a skills shortage then you are living in a fantasy land

Yes, Assange, we'll still nick you for skipping bail, rules court

Expel the diplomats, turn off the utilities and smoke this rat out. If he wants to undermine western democracy by colluding with the Russians he can do it somewhere else.

That's no reason at all to the reject the extradition request. It stand's or falls on it's own merits not whatever is going on in Assange's twisted little mind

Re: How many battery "breakthroughs" is that this year?

yeah but when has it ever tripled like we are always hearing? It is always the gradual improvement that one would expect, these outlandish promises never come true

EU parliament pushes for Dodd-Frank style conflict mineral laws

LucasNorth

"Despite everyone's best efforts, a law may not cut the importation of conflict minerals into Europe. "

It seems rather inconceivable that such a law would not cut the importation of conflict minerals at all, which is what you are suggesting.

Yes, Samaritans, the law does apply to you. Even if you mean well

LucasNorth

Twitter is all or nothing as far as privacy is concerned. Irrespective of what the law says noone who posts on a public twitter account can have even the slightest expectation of privacy. Use facebook, it's an infinitely better platform anyway

Re: "...a mark of mental health..."

LucasNorth

The only people in the UK who should have guns are the army and the police and even then the police should not carry guns as a matter of course. The risk of gun ownership are simply too high and there are simply no benefits from having them in the hands of the public.

Not really sure what the point of this article is. Samsung can call it what they want, it's the underlying technology and its capabilities that matter.

War boffin: Killer cyber attacks won't happen

LucasNorth

Dr Rid seems to assume that as it would just be our gadgets that get taken out then it wouldn't be lethal and thus not a real act of war. Well I would like to know how many people would die if GPS was taken out and the ambulance service couldn't get directions. Or the traffic signal controls were taken out and they got stuck in traffic. They are not much more than gadgets but people would certainly die. Not saying it is going to happen but it is a lot more plausible than the Dr makes out
