I take it the thumbs down is you want facebook to make more money from deceased teenage girls. Go fuck yourself.
And for how long might that be? Even copyrights expire. So at which point will they start selling dead peoples data to future generations?
Likely her death continues to benefit Facebooks bottom line, and is still being slurped into all that mush you and your millions buy. It could benefit the parents too in a more meaningful way, rather than add to your revenues unwittingly.
If the parents had the password to her account then this would surely indicate a willingness to have her messages read by her parents, which also includes a willingness to share communications she had with others. Your right to privacy when you send me a message is as good as my right to show others what you sent, since you have deferred that responsibility by sending it to me. If what you wanted to say was truly private, then keep it to yourself. Once it is delivered it is a different story since it has reached the recipient, and as such it belongs to them now. During transmission i could accept that no one has the right to read the message prior to the recipient having received it. Here be not the case. Seems a misapplication of the law since the parents have the password.
I'm not sure why i should care if companies make business decisions to opt for a cloud provider and spend money migrating to the cloud (that part wasn't free either, migration, took a lot of work) and then claim they didn't know they were being locked in? They make conscious decisions. No different to buying a BMW then complaining you can't replace all the parts of your car with Proton parts.
Tired of all this political ideology pervading the IT space. Can't everyone just be responsible for their own decisions without being lectured to?
Sure, but had the same laws applied in reverse they would never have had their hands on the blueprints to make those phones either. It works both ways. Off the top of your head name a recent chinese invention, say in the last 25 years. And if you can, name another.
5 years of cat and dog photos. Well i have had to endure more than a decade of it, so a little payback is reasonable.
If a person commits fraud against the government they are likely to face time. Can't quite fathom this ruling. Seems they got off too easy just because they have deep pockets..
You were thinking one per file?
What gives that they can't even afford to keep the compressed data even at the reduced rate? How much did they spend on the antenna and all the other setup that they can't afford to store ~2TB a day?
Or trade with the largest wall builder of them all.
Too right. Since all that is manufactured emanates from this earth which birthed us, then it is only right that the living be compensated for the industrial rape upon this earth being committed in the name of profit by machines. A tax on machines, not people. Suits me.
Clearly you have not partaken in the fetish for international craft beers. I assure you, the days of my preferring the English pint are long gone.
Thought we were all the same?
Not so fast. People will want pay rises to pay for the increased price of import goods. That will raise the cost of our exports.
Very true. I've never yet managed to make a call on this all metal phone I have.
So if this is purely about being in Europe then why did they choose to base themselves in England instead of other parts of Europe at the time when we were in the EU? There's more to that choice than merely being in Europe. America isn't in Europe, China isn't in Europe, Japan isn't in Europe, etc. They all trade with Europe. We will too.
Imagine? And Greece didn't get a better deal to stay?
Internet is public place. Computer with no password is for public entry. Sees sue ball about to be thrown at fbi.
...i'm wondering what people would think when i raise my hand quickly and my drone flies into the top corner of the room and hovers there shivering and silent. does anyone else want to punch that drone or is this just my problem?
It started well but the plot evaporated at the end.
And they feed their families too. In any case, OK I'm not in Montreal, but in Shanghai and in many other cities people hail with apps. If you don't have the app you are screwed, as I am in Shanghai can't use the app don't speak Chinese. So they don't stop because they already have a customer pickup even though it's empty. How is that any different from uber, except more expensive? If cab drivers weren't on their phones all day getting the next app pickup I might agree, but until then cabs are just uber by another name to me.
Was in a similar boat a month ago, figured it was worth a shot, kids wouldn't even use the netbook, it was gathering dust, figured it was time to throw it away... but hang on let's see what happens?
End result, super impressed, and now the kids are on it all the time. Winner!
Apple owns the rounded square (at least in America), and i've recently managed to patent the triangle (just the shape). You see the potential apple consumer might get confused between this watch and the real apple watch,since many of the users tend to be pretty fucking dumb.
Internet censorship in China is far more about controlling what people can say, it restricts freedom of speech. In the west you can not visit some sites that allow you to download torrents for example but that isn't about restriction of speech as it is about protecting the rights of owners or the rights of victims (say if you wish to post a photo of a rape victim on facebook i'm sure it would be removed)
Here in China, when you use a messaging app, it is not unusual for a message to go missing if it contains certain keywords. It's generally actually ok to complain online about the government, the chinese have this to a great art form, and the government like to see it rather than suppress it because it gives a heads up on what they need to do to keep the people happy (suppressing that is not good), and therefore the next days headlines can quell any rising unhappiness with a nerw directive aimed to tackle just that.
Watching TV here (i don't anymore) well you watch the BBC, and a news article comes on about rioting in Hong Kong and the TV screen goes black. The moment the BBC moves to the next report it's back on. It happened once i imagined maybe just bad timing, then the same thing on a different channel about the same thing, in the same day, well for sure, it wasn't a fluke.
The internet here is appalling. Google, Facebook, Twitter; all blocked. So, i already know without even looking at the reg's source code that there are links to these sites because the page will not load for minutes on end (but break the connection and it all renders on the screen - read on for why). Most sites have code to only display when the scripts have all loaded. So here, just about every website from the west will not display properly because the browser waits and hangs to download those little icons or scripts from the banned sites. It's not fun, and i assure you you only know how much internet freedom you have enjoyed when you have lived here.
My actual feeling is that most of it is about the economy, it's all rather protectionist, since every service we have come to love or loathe has it's chinese counterpart (albeit with censorship built in), unhindered by international competition and free to go out spending all that cash to buy up internet companies in the west. That should be blocked from the western side since it is clearly using censorship laws to hide the underlying fact that quite simply they are unfairly protecting their IT industry.
Foreign companies attempting to do business in China face a nightmare, being blocked, corruption surrounding every deal, the Chinese government harassing them and imposing regulations on everything (and i mean everything). Harassment in the forms of raiding the offices and locking people up maybe because you didn't give the local mayor or police chief a backhander. The West should really impose very touch economic sanctions on China now that their economy is in a position that if undermined would have so many people up in arms that the government would have to capitulate. There's more money than political will now, and it's clear to me that economics alone would lift the veil.
The current Chinese president seems rather intent on making China a less corrupt place and has some mandate to make this place a land ruled by law. A place ruled by law? Anyone can run a red light in front of a policeman, (so everyone does - everyone = not an exageration), there are no automatic machines capturing these people and issuing automated tickets, they park anywhere (and i mean in the fast lane of the highway!) to save airport parking charges, and cars turn across traffic to cut the corner when the lights go green to cross the oncoming traffic such that oncoming traffic has no right of way (every junction, anytime of the day, that's just how it is), driving up one way streets, intimidating all other road users with constantly pipping the horns (i mean constant like imagine 1000 cars holding down their horns for 1 minute) to intimidate the one road user who wants to follow the real law, It's absolutely f'cked up! Well good luck to him, but i'd start with fixing the basics, like applying your concept of ordering things to the roads before you think you give order to the internet,. If the chinese roads are the goal, then the chinese internet is going to crumble all by itself.
Top answer. If I could give you 10 upvotes I would.
nothing wrong with getting a familiar experience across devices. its only a mistake if they get it wrong, but i'm pretty sure it will come together over the next year or so.
maybe time to let the younger set take over. nowt wrong with win10 that another major release can't fix.
All data starts out unencrypted. I'd start looking there.
No nudes because of the Internet? So now it's upto the Internet to fill that hole.
Surely a tax on the value of data is in order. Since it is valuable as everyone likes to say then transferring more than 10,000 USD out the country should be subject to money laundering law and also any data collected in the year be counted as taxable income. Oh well, maybe if they paid tax on data they might naturally rethink all those laws again.
How long before data blocks are bought and sold on the open market ready to be mined? Such a f'kd up world we live in.
It's a management accounting trick. They factored in the lost revenue of renting the sidewalk to an Ecuadorian Street vendor, a proportion of unrecovered bank heists, and the extra budget on the donut fund.
And you don't think it's weird that whistle blowers are usually rapists?
I like to do it with women. Do you think I can register .mufflover so we have an inclusive group just like me.
It's all an Act. They'll keep doing it anyway and blame it on a couple of software engineers.
I name all my files .cok and my folders .vag
Does that make me sexist?
And here we are fighting the intolerant terrorists daily.
Perhaps like the kindle the battery saving could come from not having to redraw the screen 50/60 times a second. I'd start there.
just wait 3 years, then another 5 for os to reach win 95 level as it ascends from its current amigaOS look n feel.
As an exceptionally proud owner of a surface 3 pro this is really great to hear. how many suppliers and customers have marvelled at my sleek device as i whip up visual studio, connect 2 monitors, and write and debug code in their office. i must have sold a 50 or more on this alone. imagine building the next generation media server anywhere and everywhere on any network and not even notice the immense compute power slung into a couple pounds in your bag. put it in tablet mode and you might as well be carrying a piece of technical paper around with you, again a sight to behold and marvel at. an amazing device, i shall not hesitate (when win 10 is actually ready) to take the next upgrade.
p.s yes i did upgrade it to win 10 and in the same day downgraded. but there is no faulting the hardware they made (save a few hiccups which hopefully they ironed out in surface 4 - i believe they have since most of mine disappeared in the last firmware update) and the stuff that ms makes which does work for sure packs every dollar spent into my own super amplified productivity.
Not true. Software controls hardware. As new hardware with big screens and overlays in the augmented world come of age windows will become more relevant, not less.
That is where Microsoft is heading.
Linux is unnoticeable except when it crashes too. Not sure I follow your point.
Must have missed that one. And open source software rules too! Yeah!
"Why can't people just love me for who I am and not care how fat I am?", regular complaint of fat north American women.
Obviously it's not just that, it's the fact you are far more likely to f around that puts me off further. Science says.
Because the surface doesn't have a snap on magnetic keyboard. Nah, I'd rather stick with the surface thanks. It's clear you never used one.
Of course if they stop paying children then do you magically assume they'll up the wage of the parents? In reality the family will take the hit.
Living in China I can assure you there is enough money here to make you back home feel very very poor. Foxconn could easily pay more, but when your biggest natural resource is the largest population on the planet then they pay the market rate else someone else steps in and takes your job.
Likely you'll find that the reality is that the parents take the children with them to save on childcare costs if they moved into the city to take in work and they don't have family there. Often the children live far away from the parents with their grandparents raising then since the parents move away to find work. It's very common that after marriage the husband and wife go to different cities and only see each other in holidays.
As for the work? There are so so so many non jobs here in China, because they need to keep the population working at doing anything and as such the work rate is pitiful. Each checkout aisle has 5 people guiding you to products, there are more workers than customers. For sure they will not be worked to death, don't imagine it is like 100s years ago in England.
Here it is the parents choice to take them to work. It's not right, but it is their way. Changing it will likely see them employ people without kids.
And why do they move away? It's not how we do it but the distances here are vast. When I lived in Nottingham for sure my ex wife took a job in Sheffield and I took one in Derby. You can't do that over here and still be home in time for tea.
What an odd bunch of thumbs down. Guess you like submitting your username, password and personal details on the registers unencrypted pages, or you just lack a sense of sarcasm.
Its odd they replied to you after you asked them. I got EFF all.
In 94 or 95 I wrote a word macro that surreptitiously when opened printed 1000 letters to the default printer without you being able to cancel it. Once emailed to a person it had the effect you can imagine of printing what seemed like a private letter to the the rest of the room since printers are usually shared beasts and spew out paper so anyone can read them.
At the time i would have said it was the first macro virus ever, but it was not designed to replicate except on paper. Such were the days. Kid renegade. Of course now i know it was not clever and not smart, but in the day it felt like quite an achievement.
