Conwy Council used to put on their forms that you could permanently opt out under s. 11 Data Protection Act, and apparently still give you the option. I must admit, it's a level of enlightenment that I thought was beyond most councils
"To save ourselves from Huawei spying Maybe this is why the USA is so certain Huawei is bad news Snowdenistas at The New York Times and Der Spiegel have reported another communiqué from their source-in-exile, this time to the effect that the United States National Security Agency penetrated Chinese networking equipment vendor Huawei and monitored its communications."
The lack of punctuation in that paragraph makes my eyes bleed!!!!!
I do believe you are getting file formats and applications confused.....
Yes, majority of data may be in MS Office files. Open/Libre Office does a reasonable job of reading them, and actually supports a higher version of the file formats than MS Office does.
Equally, you can open Open/Libre Office files with MS Office
I rather liked WhatsApp. Pretty much everybody I know with a smart phone uses it. However, I know people that are wanting to abandon Facebook (me included).
If Facebook even so much as think about taking WhatsApp the direction of Facebook accounts needed, then I'm ditching it and suggesting to everybody I know they use BBM instead.
This might just be what Blackberry ordered....
So basically, instead of the usual next to nothing, they will be doing nothing in future....
I despair. I've got a case ongoing with them and they don't seem to have done anything in the last 3 months. It would be quite pointless telling this company to deal with my complaint because it's a telemarketing parasite and they weren't listening to me in the first place......
Maybe the courts should become the first port of call instead of the ICO. I imagine they are more scared of court costs that the toothless ICO
“the Mega Conspiracy measured the throughput, or bandwidth, that files on the Mega Sites were consuming. Files that demanded higher throughput, which meant that more users were accessing those files simultaneously, were stored on faster servers located in Washington, D.C. The preliminary analysis of the databases shows that the vast majority of files on these computers are infringing copies of copyrighted works, and the Mega Conspiracy has purposefully made their rapid and repeated distribution a primary focus of their infrastructure.”
Looks like anybody that serves a large amount of content over the internet needs to watch out. Looks like managing your resources effectively is criminal nowadays......
Re: Sensible to Suggest Ways of Blocking The Spread?
As far as I know, DropBox allows you to revert a file to a previous version, a functionality that this beast can't alter, so therefore I would be tempted to class it. Offline your computer, clean it, go back online, go through all your files on DropBox and revert them or perhaps email support and ask them to do it en-masse for you, and then download, and be more bloody careul about what you open in the future
Re: "Comfortable with that?" Er, well now that you mention it, no.
Don't think I've ever come across an Android phone that needs bluetooth on for anything. Mine is permanently off, as is my partners, mothers, brothers, mother in law, father in law etc etc etc and pretty much everybody else I can think of that uses Android
