Re: Don't need transactions?
They could call it a New Object-oriented Structured Query Language, to save face ...

I believe they used obtained IP not as a proof of illegal activities , but to obtain a physical address of a suspect to raid his home and THEN try to gather evidence ( computer, pendrives , DVDs etc )
For the record, if I were to buy a spinning harddrive today , that would certainly be a WD.
Say whatever you want, but compared to Seagate , WD drives are .. what's the best word ... decent.
Seagate is abysmal.
Who else is left ? Toshiba, I guess.
I don't know anything about Toshiba drives, since they are rare and pricier here .
I must say I am happy with WD support too.
They were helpful replacing my dead My Book Live unit for free and allowed me to restore the data myself without voiding warranty.
For me it was rare example of pro-consumer and friendly treatment.
Just for a little more balanced view ;-)
It all smells Soviet times.
Stepped down voluntarily .. yeah, right
Just like in a joke about Mayakovski's famous last words before his suicide.
"Please don't shoot Camrades"
Sad, really ..
We all should face a fact that Android is the new Windows.
It's not the OS's fault (mostly). It's the openness and ubiquity.
All OS-es are exploitable and the ones with >70% market share are a desired target.
Android security is mostly smoke and mirrors.
Most Android phones and tablets are vulnerable from day 1 , because they come with older Android versions for which exploits exist.
It is a fact of life and one should simply acknowledge it and plan accordingly.
Do you _really_ need all those games and bells and whistles ?
Maybe paying 1$ for official version of some app is not that stupid when cracked versions exist ?
Hint: crackers also have to earn money to make ends meet.
Example: I bought a new Samsung Galaxy Chat recently. It comes with Android 4.1 .
Is this a safe Android version ? Don't think so.
Sadly no official upgrade exists and I will not install anything unofficial , so I am stuck.
Richard, I would agree with you if he hacked Debian or Centos , a true non profit idealist org. And Canonical ? They are in it for money, purely. Rarely they contribute something back to Linux community.
Suppose I saw a sleeping guard and I put a flower in a barrel of his gun. Would this be a criminal act -? Perhaps. But he provides some service to the public and does it for money, so should better get his acts together..
Firstly Ubuntu is a commercial company that lives off selling their product and support , so they're not exactly volunteers.
Secondly some organizations choose Ubuntu over Windows for security sake.
( Like , say , Tibetan activists )
Perhaps such actions can open some eyes and provoke some thought ,
because _real_ adversaries will not advertise their breach all over the Internet ...
Just like first combustion planes had laughable performance, but looking at them ,someone with vision could imagine their amazing future ...
Today solar-powered craft can take only 2 passengers and fly at laghauble speed, but imagine thats just first iteration in a row of succesive designs, with a commercial one available in next few years, when solar cells will be much more efficient.
