Re: Office 365
Shouldn't it be Office 360?
Best one I've heard is Office 404 - Application not Found

"In the three years since the Priv launched, BlackBerry has yet to see it rooted. BlackBerry wants IoT device manufacturers to adopt this as a quality mark. With so much insecure home tat flying in from China, consumers and industrial buyers need all the help they can get."
While I'd admit that all IoT things needs a hellava lot more security, being unable to root a device is not necessarily an indicator of security for your devices at home - and I wouldn't use this as a measure of how secure - ultimately - that device is (be it IoT, phones, et al).
Indeed - at least uBlock has a fix - https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases - Gorhill has also included a hybrid which allows you to migrate your whitelist etc.
Would have liked NoScript also, and it appears that there is work underway to ensure that happens - https://forums.informaction.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=23173
Personally, I'll miss Enpass (unless the Chrome ext ports across easy enough) and that's about it - cannot find any update about their Firefox extension being updated...
"Print it out on a bit of paper"
Ooops! Too late - they found you. Remember that printers are recorded against users (particularly home users) much like TV sets - they also print invisible dots which can be traced back to that particular printer - supposedly to stop printing money, or something...
"Believe it or not, the phones do last longer than two years. They don't self-destruct on their 2nd anniversary..."
Unless, of course, you have put the latest OS on the device, which then starts to crawl (when it was perfectly fine before) and enforces that 'new phone' desire...
A bit like when the washing machine dies a day after the warranty expired - planned obsolescence?
Two days ago I was unable to work on my Surface Pro 3 because windows decided that it was a good time to patch. The Surface was unavailable for over an hour while it did this (and it wasn't due to lack of patching). I ended up using a unix device to complete the job.
So, hating to disagree with you there fella, but the kid has a point...
I have to disagree with with the statement "don't share. Nothing is stopping you." I'm seeing more and more reports and discussions (per the following link) where details shared via social networks are an expectation, and I can only see this getting worse, not better.
This is a single example (and I agree a fairly poor one). I have also read on forums where someone states that they do not want to share those details online - and I, for one, can relate to that - to which the reponse was "Well, you shouldn't expect to get a job unless your shared details verify your CV".
As for personal experience, my last employer actually complained that they could not find me on Facebook or LinkedIn before I joined the business. I guess some of the privacy settings DO actually work.
DaLo said: "Seeing as there is a reasonable chance of a crashing international plane hitting water why not develop a simple locator that is held in a sealed recessed area of the outer body which has a switch activated when significant water pressure is detected (non-electrical)?"
I was under the impression that there were Tsunami sensors all around the Pacific rim - could these not correlate the search area like you suggest?
Have been using Mikrotik for my home routers for a couple of years now. Not only are they cheaper than your 'generic' consumer routers, but they are much better specified, and more configurable. I have no problems recommending them.
Add the fact that they're not susceptible to the current SSL issue, and it's all good.
"Now, our new curriculum teaches children computer science, information technology, and digital literacy: teaching them how to code, and how to create their own programs; not just how to work a computer; but how a computer works, and how to make it work for you."
My computing lessons entailed exactly that back in 1981. Go figure...
