'Non-commercial use only'? Oopsie. You can't get much more commercial than a huge digital billboard over Piccadilly

Re: Free for non-commercial use?

It's a pound a day, it truly isnt all that much.

And you might only use it twice a month but what difference does that make? Teamviewer don't get advanced warning of when those times are and get to wind down their operations the rest of the month - you expect it to be up and available all month round no?

Microsoft attempts to up its Teams game with new features while locked-down folk flock to rival Zoom... warts and all

Re: Teams makes me sad

Yeah Teams very much does that....

Not only is Zoom's strong end-to-end encryption not actually end-to-end, its encryption isn't even that strong

Re: not believe unions are in the best interest of our customers or shareholders

Yes and I was going to post that same point - that the training video referenced in the article ends:

"We are not anti-union, but we are not neutral either. We do not believe unions are in the best interest of our customers or shareholders or most importantly, our associates.""

BT CEO tests positive for coronavirus, goes into self-isolation after meeting fellow bosses from Vodafone UK, Three, O2 plus govt officials

Tomato Krill

Re: It's getting the 1% as well

Not strictly true. If you are tested positive then once you are no longer infectious and have recovered, you can be a useful member of society and just possibly, a desperately needed carer (or even just helper) to somebody else.

If not you will remain forced to stay ahead from people who actually need you

Ok, and who provides it?

Tomato Krill

Yes, after the fact they did.

But to the original point that wouldn't have prevented you from doing it, it would have merely provided repercussions for you if had.

I think there had to be a point at which someone needs to be trusted. Even if there had been technical measures possible to prevent this you'd still need to trust the person or persons implementing them, and the people checking them and so forth.

So, either

1) contact a retailer from the receipts, explain situation. Dknt ask for the user details because obviously they wont do that but ask them to relay the message?

2) post a message up on www.domain.com?

Re: RFID tags instead of pictures.

Well no more than they had to 'tap into'the network of the place in the article surely?

Tomato Krill

They're already public, albeit without a public API to retrieve them (eg autotrader, ebay, any insurance quotation tool) - you have to apply and pay but theres nothing to stop anyone using any of these sites to iterate though registrations...

Well, non public API up until these clowns created one at least

Re: Bullshit

The bigger issue is people not returning to debrief.

Question, often well written (and hence easily found by search) followed by suggestions but nothing from OP to break down the fix when it was found. Makes it hugely inefficient, much more than it needed to be.

Re: Ignoring the Electorate?

I did not mean leaving the EU and I will not have the B word used in my house, I meant that if the idea of an opinion poll is to measure whether people agree with you/your decision then doing the thing that will be popular is in fact the point, no?

Re: Curious reaction

But Facebook are an American company, arent they? So why would it not be the US that the profits end up in, in the absence of any movement of goods.

Take so.ething lime Starbucks and I see a different story

They are buying coffee and sundries and selling it, it's clearly a UK operation. But Facebook do admin in the UK, they dont make their product here, the R&D is in CA, so the essence of the business is US no?

Tomato Krill

So let me get this right you want them to disregard what the electorate want?

Nigel is thst you?

Do you honestly think that, or are you just EveryArmchairCriticDailyMailReaderEver who thinks they sound intelligent if they try and make themselves 'better' than politicians?

If MPs (sorry Nige I mean the 'political elite') wanted only to win elections then by all accounts they'd be building walls and locking children in cages because that appears to be all the rage these days, but instead they argue for their principles and you want to fling stones at them for it?
