Microsoft officially hangs up on old Skype phones, users fuming

razorfishsl

They don't want those phones running, it does not fit in with their business plans.

The same way they modified office to deliberately destroy office documents on osx in an attempt to force people to use onedrive,

and the same way they deliberately cripple osx skype for business to prevent contacting non-business users.

The sad thing is that it is the government & supposed top level controllers that are the problem.

We had a Chins tech. into one of our offices in China, his machine was so infected with viruses that it was tripping our internal systems every 2 seconds.

We have even had China Telicom staff, who maintain the endpoints, with the same problems.

This is where the issues are and they are not being corrected.

Because there is already some fairly Gash AV software called "Panda", you would not want them getting confused.

Not to mention the fun you can have when they get hacked....

Network-sniffing, automation, machine learning: How to get better threat intel

razorfishsl

In this day and age "firewalls" are basically useless.

There is no boundary any longer , certainly in China where the majority of set top boxes and off brand mobile phones are loaded with backdoors built directly into the OS.

On top of that you have the multitude of Desktop & mobile software , specifically written to appeal to users requirements, character input methods, translation software, cloud based hand jobs.

looks like a translation app, acts like a translation app, unfortunately when your logged into you tax or banking app, there it is screen capping and sending highly confidential data back to the cloud and all without data encryption, but hay... it certainly translates shit.

Gamers red hot with fury over Intel Core i7-7700 temperature spikes

Re: Within parameters

Does not work like that.......

For every 10 deg above 25 deg junction temp you loose 50% of the life at 25 deg, this is well known for all designers.

The cooler & closer you run to 25 or below the longer the life.

The 90 deg. matters WHERE it is measured., junction core case or air.

If you are measuring 90 at the case you have massive problems, due to thermal lag the die & junction will be WAY higher.

Re: They would have got away with it

**Example of a professional Microsoft rant....**

I have a very nice email from microsoft tech support explaining why they have DELIBERATELY changed the 2016 office software to loose attachments.

Double clicking on a word attachment in outlook opens the file in word, but puts the file in a temp directory .......8 levels down.

so when you do a save , guess where it goes?

and when you quit outlook...... guess what happens to the "temp" folder.

the explanation goes on to point out,.......

but notice how we have made the "one-drive service" very easy to use for saving your documents., the functionality is by design.. Please use one drive.

Hold 'em, don't fold 'em: How to bite Bitcoin pools

Re: Could this happen by accident?

Beeeeeee cauuuusseee the reward is based on some theoretical assumption of robbing peter to pay paul.

since the calculation is solved "quickly", it is theoretically possible that the time saved by not calculating an extended solution, frees up time to solve another solution quickly, and hence reduces the cost of the whole setup, thereby making the payout higher for the winners.

There is not a single fixed "next block" it is not a single solution race, it is a race to hash a semi-random collection of spends so that the proposed solution meets the difficulty currently required AND gets that solution accepted by the majority.

Re: house of cards question

Nothing , because it is NOT computing power, it is hash calculation power

the chips used are single solution hardware. remove the requirement for work and you re left with e-waste fit for land fill.

Nearly all the hardware on offer is useless for generating fully extractable sha256(x) or sha256(sha256(x)), you cannot actually get out all the XYZ GH/S results.

Since the check for a solution is hardcoded into the actual chips, so the result calculations are not even extractable only single proposed solutions are passed out of the chip.

Microsoft's Slack-slapping 'Teams' slips into Office 365

They have started their shit again, where they attempt to eradicate osx from the business work space.

Skype for business on OSX WILL NOT communicate with any outside skype application not within the business domain.

Strangely the windows version has functionality to add contacts to external skype users.

This and the continual Nazi Jackboot like behavior of dictating to IT admins what services are turned on by default, clearly shows that microsoft are intent on resurrecting their old habits.

you can start a serious fire with a few hundred mA and a fuse is NOT there to protect the appliance

it is there to protect the cabling... go read the BSI standards.

The guy is an idiot, "very few people" he needs to get out of his little ivory spy tower and start looking at Chinese Android, see if he thinks a few million devices are a "few people"

Or he could try running a corporate network in china factories, and get to see the "shill devices" that have been specifically engineered to hack corporate networks from the inside.

Perhaps take a look at WIFI.com, a company that specializes in the theft of corporate WIFI network credentials in the attempt to turn a profit by spreading advertising malware inside corporate systems.

Then maybe he can be qualified to talks about android "security"

So the solutions are:

1. get a free pollinator from nature, something that has been honed for tens of thousands of years is 100% bio degradable and self repairing.

2. Poison the planet with man made insecticides to wipe out natural solutions then make some landfill plastic shit that requires massive resources to work & service the tasks previously taken by a natural solution. finally make that so it is not bio degradable.
