Looking forward to consent Ping-Pong, where oblivious users will grant permission via installing an app and accepting terms to harvest data, then reading about it in the newsfeed of said app, withdrawing consent and then immediately granting it again when they open the app once more...

Re: Ready your bunker
The DNO I work for are very aware of the risks and have made excellent steps toward ensuring staff are not caught out by phishing. SCADA replacement and reinforcement is already an active event on our risk register. User access and critical system management, as well as disaster recovery and business continuity are addressed proactively.

Re: Trucks not Cars is the Goal
Appropriate lane control, reduced accidents through sleepy drivers, more complex (efficient) scheduling which can run over 24 hours due to removal of need to sleep, larger loads, ensure bridges will be avoided... what's not to like?
I have stuck to one brand (Panasonic) for all of my equipment and the Viera Link function (presumably HDMI-CEC) works very well using my telly remote to control all devices... so long as you remember to set each device to have a different remote code. Finding the PVR turns itself off, the home theatre mutes and the TV changes input to FreeSat when all you want to do is open the Blu-ray drive is a real bugger!

They tried it with Jobs. He took the easy way out instead of replying.

Same with houses - new law should invoke 99% tax on all BTL incomes.
He's a prick. (Juncker, not Johnson - Johnson's an moron).
I just hope house prices crash so I can actually afford one.
Re: Didn't understand
Reduction in demand for housing, reduction of value of Sterling and overall reduction in price of housing was the exact reason I voted Leave. I do not own anything yet, and feel fine about the risk of screwing everyone that does - the only people who will have serious problems will the curse that is BTL landlords.

Re: Nice Theory - but
"Security is not the second most important thing. Safety, company survival, company profits and company growth are more important. Also in many companies, senior management convenience is counted as far more important than security."
You won't get much profit, growth or senior management convenience if you have a leak from the air conditioning in the electronically-locked Boardroom which fails, and kills everyone senior.
How to make a third party and keep the fanbois happy
Apple: Hi Corporate Drone 1.
Corporate Drone 1: Hi.
Apple: Hey Corporate Drone 1, take a look at this - it's a means to unlock the Apple 5s phone which we don't want people to know about, but the FBI would really like us to give to them.
Corporate Drone 1: Aw gee, I think I know wha...
AN UNMARKED CAR APPEARS.
Apple: Say Corporate Drone 1, here's a big cheque for your services. Please get in this car.
Corporate Drone 1: Please don't fire me, I real.....
Apple: You're fired.
Driver: Next stop, Washington DC!
Former Corporate Drone: Good morning Mr FBI.
Mr FBI: Good morning Third Party.
Apple: Curse that Third Party, we did ALL we could...

Re: 50 years ago...
I'm going to have a stab @ Arguing about the right of corporations to sample your kids DNA for utilisation in a designer baby genetic splicing lab via social media internet-connected testing devices built into the latest security measure in the Apple iSkin wearable, grafted communication device on the back of their hand, so that their particular shade of blue/brown eyes/hair/skin can be replicated in a cloning lab for transplant into an embryo unit to be surrogated into a 2nd world mother on the behalf of homosexual life partners who wish to have the perfect child, which has been granted by a tiny micro-print section of the latest Facebook EULA update.

Wait, let me get this straight: The large 'bag' of silk which inverted and opened directly above your head in deployment is the SAME 'bag' of silk which is mere fibres away from the rapidly opening and closing valve in your botty as BROWN TROUSERS TIME commences?

Re: Lack of violence
Millennials? They can go a wrap their skinny jeans around their necks for all I care, try the generation that's footing the bill for the NHS, Immigration and opyright extension. The generation that welcomed a fourth TV channel, wanted to be in the A-Team and currently makes up 70% of all private renters.
Re: Lack of violence
"The same thing happens today when many people choose not to have children - but use their resources to improve the lot of the next generations. What is passed on is not necessarily a family gene - but a community's cultural meme."
So you are saying there will be a natural antidote to Baby Boomers a few generations down the line? Thank God.

Re: Somebody went shopping at Argos and it wasn't me
Wait, are you saying that the last time you went to the Steam account page which bore your credit card number was in NOVEMBER?
That seems to be an AWFULLY long time for Steam to have cached your purchase page, for it to then be served to a random on 25th December. You sure you didn't buy any meals at a restaurant or allow your card out of your hand card since then?
We are becoming a nation of over-sensitised people who see "offence" in every way they can imagine with their female minds.

Re: Hackney Carriage
I have never seen that happen - must be quite a bit of pressure and angulation required to get the stream up and over your head to reach the back of the cab, out the window and onto the tyre. Making sure you keep the vehicle in motion at the same time must be a bitch too!
Re: Hold It In?
Missed your chance to impress your sister's mates with yer spam javelin too.
All well and good for piss, but what about rainfall? Some unlucky bugger will receive ALL the piss diluted by ALL the skytears, every single time it rains!
Re: "We have no plans to..."?
Negative, they just intend to charge £4.99, as the full £5 was considered insensitive and too exploity.
Indeed. Never forget the cost to reputation, and legal implications, loss of accreditation or other damage which might not just mean £££. And Christ you better make sure no one dies.
Russian watchdogs - They probably have much sharper teeth and know where the bones are buried. OFCOM, on the other hand, can barely lick its own balls.

Re: Well he would say that wouldn't he!
So you are bitching about a third party damaging the connection (which VM will have to investigate and identify at a cost of X - which is far more than income Y you provide them) and you give them 'days' to fix it, followed by 30 more days to collect the toys you are throwing out the pram? Big baby.

Ah but we SEE the fighting. We know when THAT pod went - another could have escaped BEFORE the door blows up and Mr Asthma made his stride onto the ship.
I'm afraid Leia's vessel is missing at LEAST 2 escape pods: we witness two Imperial gunners targeting the pod used by C3-PO and R2D2 and exclaiming "Look, there goes another one!".
It is only the absence of life signs which holds their fire and saves the Galaxy as they know it.

It's Jake. It's always bloody Jake.
All wrong. No harm can come from this scenario. Fear mongering at best, outright bullshine at worst. Nothing to see here, as I commented the last time this non-issue appeared on El Reg.
