Re: It took TWO YEARS to notice 122 millions in extra payments?
122 million is loads to ,me or you.
I'm I sure I read that they (google) add around that to their bottom line *per day* though.

Sharing the video is not the offence.
the people charged shared the video WITH comments of glee, racial hate or of incitement.
Can you watch it? if you must. Can you share it? Probably yes.
Can you share it with "Bring on the CULL!!" or post it along with "Yes! 49!!! (or whatever the sad toll ) was? No.
No, we don't ban videos of the holocaust.
Apply thew same scenarios. These people shared the videos with "bring on the cull" or being happy about the body acount etc etc.
I'm pretty sure you'd come a cropper of those same laws were you to share a video of the holocaust with similar messages about bringing on the cull of jews etc. Not so if you were shown them at school, for example.
I wouldn't assume they had no backups. more that it was one of those / most places where admin = universal power.
He's more likely to have clouted the backups too, while he was at it.
Should have left a random script somewhere that was triggered by a quarterly activity long after you've gone.
You won't be paying for games, you'll be paying a subscription fee to access games. It will be a monthly fee. If they vanish, you stop paying.
By your logic Netflix, amazon prime et all will be massive flops. After all, who would pay for access to media they don't own? Right? Why is it a bad idea fro games but good for other media? Kindle unlimited, the various music services. All work and are flourishing off this very principle.
It'll be a hit. If it works, i'll be a very happy chap.
How are you not getting this?
"They" aren't making any assumptions, they have grounded the planes while the issue is discovered.
You keep claiming air travel is safe. It is, and things like this are *why* it is safe.
Honestly, what single disadvantage is there to grounding the models in question?
Name a single advantage to allowing them to continue flying while the facts are established?
It doesn't matter, at this stage, what caused it. What matters is stopping those planes from flying in or around our nation(s) until the facts are known and whatever the issue is, is corrected.
Explain to me how any number of locked doors would stop the Mail's hypothetical terrorist?
Unless it's the lads from "four lions" then i'll give you a hint:
The threat posed by an unlocked door is pissed up teenagers messing about, it being used as a combination toilet and shooting up spot, or a 'stray man' wandering in and moving in.
If they asked for ID then it's very straight forward.
FB ask for ID if they believe the account is a fake, or at least using a fake name. The ID is asked for to prove that you really are called "Jim WHUFC4EVA Anon" or "Stacey mummyto3 TEAM GRIFFINDOR Bloggs" etc etc etc
I don't think FB ask for ID in any other instance.
The usual way this happens is a petty argument where one user is more aware of the t's and c's than the other.
Someone with an obviously fake name pissed you off? Report the profile to FB and it's gone. Zap. Because they will never be able to produce ID that shows their name is that of their favourite fantasy character or whatever.
Anyway, TL;DR if they've asked for ID it's because the user has most likely used a fake name (something something you agreed when you signed up something something) and it's been reported or spotted by the algorithm.
It will be much more straight forward than that.
The "average" punter won't buy and setup a VPN.
They'll do exactly as they do now, only on a different site. The second it kicks in they'll all remember how google works, and some porn sites in random countries will get a sudden uptick in traffic and uploads.
I can't see it.
As things stand now there's no automatic method to "skip" a feature update., You have to apply one then the other, if using either windows update or WSUS.
I believe you can do it manually.
So, nope, I can't see these users being able to do much apart from two giant updates/reboots in the correct sequence. That's what machines do now if some sort of issue prevents them from getting the feature updates, you just have 2 to do,
Our sales types go through the hinges of yogas like they're made of paper.
The earlier models we had seems to last about 18 months before some of the soldered on bits break, the later models seem to be a bit better,
I'm all up for ordering a a couple of these, and see how they get on with them. They're a decent percentage cheaper for the i7 models.
Sort of, but not quite.
It didn't used to be in the app. That is what has caused the kerfuffle.
The app updated and suddenly users were presented with the mic and it's related options/functions. A mic they didn't know what there.
The mic was unknown to users until an app update "outed" it. At which point google copped to it.
Was that a business or home device?
We've never had a single blip with lenovo and business support, the VERY few that have failed have been sorted in the promised time window wiht no quibbles.
Out of an estate of 150ish lenovo laptops i've had 2 fail in the last 12 months. All various thinkpads.
How old is your yoga?
we kit our travelling types with them, 12-24 months tops in those hinges. In our experience of the various yoga models we have (carbons, x1, various others)
This looks a decent bit of kit though.
The hinges on the other thinkpads we have, like the E570 and E580 are great, rarely see an issue.
Similarly the "murders" he was nobbled for - He didn't want anyone killed, he didn't order anyone killed.
what they meant was "6 people tried to/did hire/advertised for a hitmen via silk road" and/or "the services of approximately 6 hitmen were advertised there" Or the ever popular "the agent we had pretending to be a hitman was paid 6 times"
I mean FFS, your average heroin deal would get thousands of years inside if they were charged with a rough approximation of the harm and deaths caused, and each crime committed by the addicts etc.
"Clever uses QR codes that kids can carry on student badges, and then scan to log in to a machine."
That's a username, not a password.
I'm a dad, I get that young kids won't be able to remember a randomised 12 digit password or whatever, but at least teach them about passwords, and why they are a thing. Some sort of middle ground basically.
Lots of sneering at enforced password changes.
For clarity - I 100% agree that it's terrible practice. Sadly several of the large certification bodies disagree.
We recently had to "cyber essentials certify" because some extremely large client thought it important.
This is one of the boxes you have to tick. That we enforce regular password changes and complexity blah blah blah. Left up to us, it'd be different. Not up to us in I.T though.
There's a proportion of people here who clearly don't use windows 10, but love to pretend they do to moan about it.
Similarly on every office 365 article there's an outpouring of comments from people who either don't use it at all, or haven't in years. Whinging about a variety of things that either simply aren't an issue, or things that highlight a bit of a knowledge gap.
Just like this moaning about the start button/menu.
Press start button.
Ignore start menu.
type name of application, or service etc required.
Before you've finished typing it has narrowed down the choices and normally has what you're after in the top 1-3.
That tiny, truncated window of a handful of suggestions (including what you were after) is all the start menu you should ever see.
I don't get why people care about the start menu. Do you honestly still sift and page through it?
Hit start button. Start typing the name of the thing you want, generally by the third or fourth letter what you were after is right there presented to you. Or simply start typing in the cortana jobby box next to the start button with the same result
People don't use the start button in the old XP/7 style, they just don't!
100% a non-issue.
!2 upvotes for that?
That's absolute nonsense my friend. "most people" don't buy PCs, at all. They own a laptop and/or tablet.
The amount of laptops available for sale that will even fit a secondary drive in these days is absolutely tiny. With each new "generation" they become rarer and more expensive beasts. Most people buy single drive devices and they are almost exclusively smaller SSD drives now.
IF you're still moving your page file, that makes you cheap, not a "serious windows user". IT certainly doesn't put you in any sort of majority. It plants you firmly in the percentage of a percentage who know and care about such things.
Stick a decent sized SSD in, double your ram up. Problem solved.
Junker is out of a job next year.
I know certain people like to pretend it's some sort of job for life but he's out next year and it's voting time (again people pretend this doesn't happen).
What do you think a retired ex-politician will do with an army?
Calm down, it's conducive to more rational thought.
They've also confirmed it has been more than one drone.
Not everything is a conspiracy.
They have some sort of time window rule they have to stick to. What has been happening is this:
Drone sighted, necessitates airport closure for X hours.
X hours - 5 mins - Drone is back.
There hasn't been a drone or drones flying continuously for all this time.
five minutes on the internet will show you Trump lies practically every day, practically every time he opens his mouth.
Countless times he contradicts himself and changes fats to suit his needs.
He's a liar, pretty much every day. The only reason you don't see it, is because you don't want to. you choose to remain ignorance because it clearly suits your world view.
It is obvious, and there are endless amounts of video proof of him lying, about almost everything he speaks about. He is, demonstrably, a liar.
That you perceive obama to also be a liar does not make that ok.
@LDS it's beyond testing, and you have the stick backwards or even perhaps the wrong stick entirely.
They're stripping out clart / minimising the ribbon in actual outlook 365. i.e the highest tier of cost paid for one, it's not just the lower end consumer tiers.
Anyone running the full version of office 365 (not the web apps, the actual copy of office you can install) with the latest updates can toggle the new/upcoming features on right now, and it includes a HEAVILY reduced ribbon.
It's much more minimal now, you have to find stuff if you want it rather than it all being there consuming 1/3rd of the application.
It's horrible that they think there is a market for this, and worse still that they are correct.
There are tonnes of idiots with seemingly unlimited cupboard space for gadgets they use obsessively for 6 months then almost never again.
Everyone's mileage varies but see also:
Automatic soup making heated blender things,
Those connected cocktails mixers (yes, with an app),
Someone on a local facebook selling page is trying to flog an electric meat slicer (i.e deli-counter style) that "isn't getting much use, brilliant condition".
I firmly believe there is no price low enough that it won't put huge sections of the plebs who are their bread and butter off.
If they ask for payment there will be a (shitty but improving weekly) alternative thrown up (see gab popping up when "the right" were first being banned on twitter). It was bloody awful on launch, and initially marketed directly at absolute scum. It still took off though, and is growing rapidly.
That's what would happen, even at something like a dollar a month. It's only practically ubiquitous because it was and is "free".
That is why, around 6 years after Zuck mentioned it, it still hasn't happened.
Similar issues here (re the soccer team).
My daughters primary school *only* posts certain things on facebook! Despite endless requests for another form of communication they have certain categories of "thing" that generate a letter being sent out, some stuff is just posted on the FB page (the last non-uniform day for eg) Facebook only, or word of mouth when you're on the school run.
It's a funding issue, I believe it's a local mother, rather than a school employee, running the page.
In our experience AWS have the pricing nailed. It's hardly a surprise.
The entirety of this strategy/announcement can be summarised like this:
We need to replace the kit at the datacentre(s). It's going to cost £Incredible_Sum, or we can go to AWS who will charge us £Incredible_sum-%10
It is as simple as that, the rest is fluff and waffle.
@Snowy, on your android device perhaps, but not on any of the (probably hundreds) I've seen used or supported over the years.
the only thing i've seen that comes close to that is some of the fitbit style things want BT and location on to do their "sync" thing and then they're perfectly happy without location.
This is only needed if you let the fitbit battery die for example. It will ask for location and bluetooth to sync but that's the fitbit app, not android, doing the asking.
