Microsoft browsers have been running dodgy code for years... ActiveX anyone???
Who even uses Edge browser anyway? Their whole userbase seems to be build around tricking people into using it, or creating fake rules that say to use feature X you must use Edge/bing to pump their stats...
Shit name suggests shit product.
Who on earth thought that "WileyFox" was a great brand name????
There is nothing wrong the product, except the amateurish name it portrays.
"Ultimately, this has put us in a position where most apps rely on adverts to generate any kind of return."
No, it means you have to try harder. Whilst you can sell any old shite on Apple's marketplace and braindead plebs will buy it, as 99p is nothing to someone thank has spunked a grand on a phone. Android will have free alternatives to your tat. The free version might ever be better than your tat.
It's not that users aren't willing, it's that opensource OS has lots of opensource apps, and a generally free culture, and your tat isn't worth paying for not unless you put some real effort in.
Utter nonsense. Its not perfect, but it's still a million times better than not having it at all.
Google also of course offer more secure offerings too. But even 2FA byvSMS is better than FA....
Of course not. Here is what you actually need to do;
*Enable untrusted sources in phone settings
*Ignore warning about the malware risks involved with untrusted sources
*Turn off play protect scanning
*Visit obscure website hosting this.
*Be using a mobile device
*Open the APK it downloads
* Ignore the permissions it lists on the install screen, including record microphone permissions
* install app
*Grant special accessibility permission
Its also worth mentioning, unlike Windows, android is fully sandboxed, so even if you did all these things, you simply have to uninstall the app to get rid of it fully, it won't leave stuff on your device.
Funny that Kaspersky and checkpoint always "forget" to mention these huge mitigation factors...
Didn't clarify more important stuff rather than lawyer nonsense.
Like perhaps how this is distributed
how many defences you have to disable to get it
How many permissions you have to grant it.
Kaspersky really are clickbait scumbags. Why anyone would trust their network security with them when they can't even be trusted to providing accurate malware information with resorting to sexing everything up?
Unterschleißheim is a town in Bavaria, Germany. It is located about 17 km north of the city limits of Munich.
City limits being the operative word here... how much money will flow between Microsoft and the city of Munich, when it's located outside of the city??? "Near" doesn't cut it.
Stop trying and unspin this obviously related move.....
Munich, the only place in the world, where you can make charges of taking brown envelopes disappear with brown envelopes....
They are really going to feel the heat with a 30% hit.
How about Microsoft surface garbage with intel chipsets, their shite performance is now really gonna suck.
My £170 purchase of Nest smart thermostat 3 years ago has already paid for itself. During the winter months, I saw a £12 a month saving on heating bills, AND the house felt warmer. My previous thermostat wasn't set wrong, it was just very dumb, not taking into account outside temp, weather forecasts, time to heat up the house, cool-down times, and when people are likely to be around.
Don't be an idiot that falls into the trap thinking everything IoT is crap, it's not. There are real savings to be had. You have just shown the world that you really shouldn't be working in the technology sector with your closed minded black and white attitude. May I suggest a career at McDonalds, they are always on the lookout for people like yourself.
And of you read the reply, uninstall instructions on a help PR support page are just fine, guess what, I just checked and chrome complies with that, so this if usual fake news from the usual suspects....
Actual Google users get updates just fine thanks.
It sounds like you are too thick to understand there is a difference between Google, Google devices and android.
Just shout if you need it explained, or speak to a grown up
Clearly you are getting Google and android mixed up. My Google device is patched promptly every month, just like apple devices are (intact right now iOS is so flakey it's been patched every other day at the moment)
Still puts cheap advertising impressions, that is the name of the game
Then I guess successive UK governments are also guilty??
(or what that your hidden political agenda??)
Because of what apple told you? Because of what the internet told you?
Do you want to buy some magic beans?????
Any chance of offering up something thats just just lame clickbait churnalism once in a while?
Apple don't disclose what they fix monthly in their low level hardware libraries, so it's really an unfair comparison.
If you think that because you paid a £300 premium on your phone to not get profiled, then you are above and beyond your usual run of the mill apple idiot.
I guess nobody also told you, Android device setup allows you to entirely opt out of google services, iPhone you have no choice, you are always apples bitch.
'accessing it remotely via VNC, RDP, screen sharing, and so on"
Apple protection force out in strength....
"While Apple can update half of its user base to the newest code within two months, "
Google can update pretty much all it's userbase to the new code within a few days of release...
Android is not a phone manufacturer, it's an operating system and clearly plenty of people get really confused by this. How hard is this to understand?
Do you also walk into a car dealerships to buy a new set of tyres?
The point is, you pay your money and take your choice.
if running the latest and greatest Android is important to you, you shop appropriately. If you want something that you throw in the bin every 18 months and buy new, shop appropriately.
Don't be a cretin and confuse the two.
What's the real damage thou? Out of the 10 people that use Bing, how many were likely to be TSB customers???
What is this? 2007?
You know all these made up problems only "affect" the pixel2XL and not the pixel2 right?
Ooops, did the clickbait internet not feed you that info???
Apple owners didn't care their phones were being built with child slave labour, as long as they still got their Apple fix to fill their sad empty lives, who cares.. They certainly won't care about tax avoidance.
I'm not entirely sure how they can claim avoidance, when they clearly didn't want anyone to find out what they were up-to.
"What Information Is Publicly Visible?"
“Is it possible to obtain an official assurance of tax exemption?”
Its absolutely true, you seem to have been mislead the apple funded internet
Updated itself over night...
Nope, this is something YOU needed to have considered at time of purchase, it's entirely your fault for putting other features or price above support, and you can't change your priorities now
Let's see if IphoneX gets the same press crucifixion for its screen burn and colour shift..
WE ALL KNOW THE ANSWER, IT WILL GET A FREE PASS, as the viral spin that created the pixel2XL story originated from Cupertino via a bought blogger....
It was no coincidence it happened when it did, to deter and Apple defectors
Essentially you are saying you have more money than sense... Ok then, join the iPhone X queue...
Lol the old "android system". You know android isn't hardware? Android is thousands of devices, all different, all different abilities. Someone already posted an android device that does 3d face scanning....
That's pretty much how they operate these days, they are the laughing stock of the tech sector and clearly don't take security seriously, as they would know the dangers of crying wolf too often.
when every website you ever visit always asks you every time (because you say no), it becomes tiresome, so everyone just says yes to consent just to make the nag go away.
So what exactly this this achieve? It just made everyone give their consent, as the mechanism that was being used to store their preference was also the mechanism they were granting permission to.
"No, you don't. Where are private paid options?"
Do you know how to use the internet?
"Transparency is part of Google's DNA. We work hard to earn and maintain trust with our customers through transparency. The customer – not Google – owns their data. Google does not sell your data to third parties, there is no advertising in G Suite and we never collect or use data from G Suite services for any advertising purposes."
Essentially, you have the choice, pay for GSuite if you genuinely don't want Google using your data for anonymous data purposes, or use the free services as much as you you like (of which when you add them up, add considerable value, Mail, Calendar, Office, Maps, Photos and so on...)
Will this be like last time, when they made every internet site annoying overnight by making me click a cookie consent message to allow them to store a cookie to remember that I consent so they don't have to bug me next time
OK, I will assume you are stupid. BBC also link to the same single handset.
When it was clear the user was a total cretin.
You bought something that was out of support when you bought it. How is that Google's fault?
Did you want to buy my 1982 Ford Escort? it's a but rusty and smokes alot, but i'm sure it's fine...
90% of el reg security acticles are pure fantasy. They stopped reporting real tech news years ago
Karma is a bitch, as with all the noise about android fragmentation, I have never ever had an app that didn't work or wasn't compatible, even really old apps work perfectly on android 8...
Wondering where all those fragmentation taking tech "experts" are now? Hiding away in shame I hope for falling for apple spin..
Microsoft, Apple, Facbook all have EXACTLY the same business model, and sell your details in EXACTLY the same way.
if you think you are better by not avoiding Google, then you need to go read up on Microsoft, Apple and Facebook privacy statements, be prepared for a shock... They still your details in the same way, but give you MUCH less in return (Appl even have the audacity so sell you overpriced hardware in exchange for your details...)
You only have to look at a current Chromebook to see the future, £200 gets you a device that is Uber secure, boots in 2 seconds and gives you 12 hour battery life. Its totally devoid of all the problems of windows and Mac. You can get viruses, there is no need for virus scanners, it's totally safe to use for secure online banking, you don't have to worry about backups. You have 1 thing to do to make it secure, ensure your Google account is secure (2FA and unique strong password). You are good to go.
Its a total breath of fresh air compared to everything else. Mine is now 3 years old, gets used daily coat £160, and is as fast as it was the day I bought it. Its perfectly suitable for 90% of consumers and 100% of schools, and as business wake up to the security advantages of cloud, more and more of them will understand that relying on windows and lots of emailed round copies of uncontrolled document attachments are much worse than a single cloud document with centrally managed access
Windows mobile was dire, the UI didn't know is if it wanted to be mobile or desktop and failed bad!y on both...
Xbox is surely the prime contender for the chop, it's never made money, racked up huge losses in the tens of billions and current models have flopped so badly, Microsoft refuse to mention sale numbers and even have them removed from quarterly earnings reports... Essentially telling the world even the best estimates from third parties of how badly it's doing are way off the mark to the true floppage...
"Yes, the market needs $129 laptops for the poor people... "
What a tool...
Those £129 laptops will do the same as your £2500 bling (bing) machine..... Pleb...
Do you want to buy some magic beans? £1200 each and I only have a few left
Yep, all my devices updated overnight and were patched this morning....
But then I wasn't stupid enough to buy the cheapest shite on the shelf and thought it would come with premium support.
No, location recording is optional and defaulting to off on every Android device I have come across.
