Angry Googlers demand bosses pull the wings off 'Dragonfly' censored Chinese search engine

Handle123456

I'm more concerned about the censored version for the rest of the world

Google has come a long way from their original "don't be evil" to having a political agenda and filtering and resorting the search results accordingly.

Great. Global internet freedoms take another dive as censorship and fake news proliferate

Citizen's data ...

"China's demands – much like Russia's – that citizens' data is stored within its borders means "information can be accessed by security agencies", the report said – thus diminishing users' freedoms."

I may be wrong, but I do think the same is true for EU. But there it is to protect their data. Of course.

Re: Is there anything wrong with Windows 10?

Even nontechnical people restart from time to time.

Actually nontechnical people restart more often than technical people.

I would not mind if after some days after a security patch is released I was forced to install it while shutting down or restarting the computer, but automatic restart is simply insane. "active hours" or no active hours.

If the computer restarts without me telling it to, it CRASHED!

Re: Is there anything wrong with Windows 10?

One thing that's insanely wrong is its insistence on restarting on its own "to install updates". I really hope I never find out what braindead idiot decided it's OK for an operating system to "decide" to restart.

The bloody thing is wiling to go far as waking up from hibernation to fsck you and restart.

More than a third of Euro IT pros worry about keeping server lights on

What desired effect?

"European General Data Protection Regulation, and its hefty penalties for non-compliance, are having the desired effect."

And what effect is that supposed to be? More jobs for paper-pushers?

Re: Flame on peeps...

But only thanks to a clever trick. Most of the EU bureaucracy is done by people on someone else's payroll.

All the way from government to towns there's a ton of people whose sole purpose is interfacing with EU, providing shiploads of useless papers, implementing and overseeing petty regulations, ...

Sysadmin unplugged wrong server, ran away, hoped nobody noticed

Handle123456

Why not unplug it at the other side?

I mean usually you can disconnect the power cable at both sides, both from the wall socket and from the computer. I don't think I ever met a computer that had the cable hardwired. If he had problems untwisting the cable, he should have disconnected it from the computer, leave it there and use a spare cable in his office.

Ex-Google recruiter: I was fired for opposing hiring caps on white, Asian male nerds

Handle123456

Choose one

"We have a clear policy to hire candidates based on their merit, not their identity," Google's spokesperson said. "At the same time, we unapologetically try to find a diverse pool of qualified candidates for open roles, as this helps us hire the best people, improve our culture, and build better products."

You can't do both at the same time you idiot!

Stop slurping NHS data to enforce immigration laws? Not on your nellie, huffs UK Home Office

What? Attempting to ensure the rule of law? Bah, Not in current world.

"data is only shared to trace "known immigration offenders" that have ceased contact with the Home Office, they note, not to track down undocumented migrants."

And that's exactly what the problem is. It's not used the way it should be. It's not used to find breaches of law and handle them. Only the citizens are supposed to follow the law, the migrants can jolly well do anything they please. Any attempt to track them down will be shot down by "human rights activists".

It's the parents' job to raise children and protect them from harm, not government's!

If a child is old and clever enough to circumvent the protection, it's old and clever enough to see a naked tit.

The British ought to work on other problems, but I guess seeing a naked boob might cripple a child for life, while being repeatedly raped by an "oppressed minority" gang is perfectly fine.

Re: Caveat

More monitoring is useful, it's just not a task for NASA anymore. Getting a satellite on Earth's orbit is no longer space exploration, so the different kinds of monitoring are best left to other, more specialized organizations.
