Of course, blame the users.

Windows 10 wipes your child safety settings if you upgrade from 7 or 8

icesenshi

Re: The quoted article comments are basically...

If you had actually read the article you'd know better. People running 7/8 with parental controls set up had them blown away with window 10 upgrade. Next time try reading the article first before commenting.

Edge out rivals? No! Firefox boss BLASTS Microsoft's Windows 10 browser brouhaha

icesenshi

Didn't ms already settle with the eu over this? And then paying almost a billion dollars for failing to offer a browser choice for over a year?

Facebook fails to block NY DA's fat warrants for profiles of suspected September 11 fraudsters

icesenshi

"None of these sources refer to an inherent authority for a defendant or anyone else to challenge an allegedly defective warrant before it is executed."

No way to challenge a warrant's legality or defectiveness until it's it's executed. Then the government can say 'oops' but by that point it's too late. Only in America.

Beaten blokes hate the women who frag them in online games

Re: Depends...on when people noticed the debate...

Of course they can't provide any links, because they don't exist. Or they'll come back and say do the research yourself because they can't be bothered.

Silicon Valley sides with Samsung in anti-Apple patent war

icesenshi

It all became a joke when samsung won an injunction against apple. It would have banned certain apple products from selling in the usa... until obama overturned the ruling.

Seems samsung has some friends in the us, even if the government isn't one of them.

Foobar ABX doubleblind testing. Record it or it didn't happen.

You are unable to assess its validity, but feel completely fine writing multiple paragraphs on why you disagree with it.

Crowdfunded beg-a-thon to bail out Greece raises 0.003% of target

icesenshi

Re: Ignorance of the issue

Yes let's just blame Germany for everything and ignore all the mistakes and spending by Greece. Greece had nothing to do with it, nothing at all.

It's 2015 and Microsoft has figured out anything can break Windows

icesenshi

Re: Surely...

Surely bundling ie with windows had absolutely nothing to do with market share, not at all. Because then the eu would not have forced ms to unbundle ie from windows. Oh wait..

3 courts, 3 different rulings. An accountant is supposed to know better?

FTC lunges at Kickstarter bloke who raised $120,000 – and delivered sweet FA

I don't think it will fall through, at least not like this. Whatever is produced however, cannot possibly live up the hype (and money) invested.

Re: The investigation should center on...

Yes, let's not lay blame when someone dies or something goes wrong. Just say 'oops it happens', right?

Stripping metadata from pictures = crime or wrongdoing?

Uh what about the bbc then?

Starbucks denies mobile app hack, blames careless customers

Re: It is interesting to see lots of IT people mocking users for ticking the linking boxes etc

You're basically saying you pay people to think for you. Then you wonder why things go wrong and who to blame. We already know the answer to at least one of those questions.

Look out, law abiding folk: UK’s Counter-Extremism Bill slithers into view

icesenshi

"For too long we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone,”

So just obeying the law isn't good enough anyomore? Today it's 'extremist speech', tomorrow???

FCC leaning towards approving AT&T/DirecTV gobble – report

icesenshi

Re: Question

Considering it will become the largest television company in the us, it obviously doesn't serve the people. Capitalism, baby.

HAHAHA! Go on, HOST YOUR NEWS on FACEBOOK, FOOLS!

icesenshi

Re: 8 secs for loading...

Citation needed indeed. Show the studies or numbers, or it's just a bunch of hot air.

FCC wants to know if carriers can grab some of YOUR WiFi signal

icesenshi

So is there any way to out of this? Like buying routers without it? Or will it be 'required' to be compatible with the new standard (whatever comes after ac).

Zuck'ed up: Facebook opens up free internet in India – but bans HTTPS

icesenshi

Re: Oh really?

Agreed. Normally this site is so anti-fb, but it seems zuck has some fans here as well. No https means that facebook wants to snoop all traffic, like they do everything else. Anyone claiming it's because of 'caching' or other such nonsense is hopelessly naive.

Re: A raw deal, royalty-wise

Re: Experimental data

Let the world hope that you're not in security, since you clearly lack any understanding of it. And if you are in security, it would explain cockups like this. A lot.

Google versus the EU: Sigh. You can't exploit a contestable monopoly

Re: "The moment Google starts screwing over us consumers then we'll bugger off elsewhere"

TW is missing the point. The only question is whether or not it is intentional.

Google pulls plug on YouTube for older iPads, iPhones, smart TVs

icesenshi

So a 3year old tele is now considered 'obsolete'. I thought studies show most people keep theirs until they die, so 5-10 years.

WHAT did GOOGLE do SO WRONG to get a slapping from the EU?

Re: US officials haven't accepted anything

Only downvoting because 10% from google is far from ridiculous, like they can't afford it or something.

Turkey PM bans Twitter, YouTube as 'tools of terrorist propaganda'

Common decency? Who decides? You? Just the same old tired arguments in favour of censorship.
