Although it's already grabbed your contacts and silo'd them, presumably Marshmallow lets you bar it from your contacts in the future? Though given how whatsapp works that's likely less than useful :o/

Re: Grinch scuzzbots.

Meh. Metal Gear 5 will play offline (seems to, anyway, lack of PSN access, rather than MGS servers, may affect it). Destiny and Warframe will be jiggered for a bit, though. Judging by my progress % and time spent, I still have about 280hrs of campaign play left before even worrying about online mode. That game is seriously large.

It would be a childish and cowardly thing to intentionally do at Xmas. Exactly the kind of bullshit you'd expect a couple of skiddies to do, in fact, rather than a 'reputable' team (irony/etc intentional) who could presumably demonstrate their 'p0wah' over the intertubes at any time.

So yeah. I call Grinch AND skidiot morons.

Facebook to Belgian data cops: Block all the cookies across the web, then!

g e

Boo hoo, Schmuckerberg

Exactly.

If your cookie provides security for real users of your infrastructure (even when consumed by non-users, somehow) then you built it wrong you clown.

Obviously, though, it was neither worth 250k/day nor setting the lawyers loose. Just worth a whingey-whiny bit of mealy-mouthed statement. Nothing, in other words.

These megacorps are just like spoilt little children.

Yes, Skype did become backdoored quite swiflty after MS acquired it.

Sued for using HTTPS: Big brands told to cough up in crypto patent fight

Or, more simply

Make their complaint dependent upon stating the damages they intend to pursue.

Then force them to deposit half that amount PER CASE LODGED with the State to be able to proceed.

They win they get their cash back plus whatever they're awarded. They fail, the defendant gets to walk away with it.

Re: World domination

now, of course, everyone's going to change their COD name to jihadi_jim or xxAlouitiousAkhbarxx and start spaffing mockwah speech (if cockney can have mockney, fatwah can have mockwah?) - the sheer quantity of noise as it stands about blowing shit up on a gaming network makes the idea risible, never mind people KNOWING you're looking for it.

Is it hardwired as in ROM or malleable as in Flash firmware?

Couldn't an updater potentially do something like read the device serial and mangle it with the current timestamp whilst upgrading firmware and write that key?

Good luck with that, haven't been able to find a MagPi round here, including a WH Smiths.

BTW My Pi2 runs Kodi (Via OpenELEC Pi distro) and is powered from the AV amp's USB port so when I turn the amp on the media centre boots too :o)
