What a lovely use of that word. I suggest using a flannel if grot becomes a problem.
Dixons Retail has issued a grovelling apology after a demon fondleslab possessed with porn beamed smut directly into the eyes of children at a Currys store in Surrey. According to a report in the Surrey Comet, a distressed mother, who asked to remain nameless, said her three children were confronted with the filth on entering …
blacklist?!? Are they completely incompetent. If this thing was even allowed to access the internet proper, then it should be so on a whitelist.
What is THE FIRST THING any self respecting yoof is going to do on a computer in a shop once they notice it's connected to the net?
More than that. If it took her, an adult, a whole minute to work out what it was, the kids probably didn't even realise, so no harm was done.
Of course another option is that she wasn't watching what they did, and they are the ones that opened it, to see if it worked on the iPad as well as on the home PC.
Or another option still is that she is thick.
Too much freedom of everything, so close it down.
Can't have all those blogs displaying anti-government propaganda to the peeps can we ?
Well, we'll have to look into that. Maybe form a select committee to examine the issues then get around to blocking it....or making it illegal....or making people pay for it (at 20% vat)
What about when PC's were starting to be noticed by the high street retailer?
Alter AUTOEXEC.BAT to echo swears in a loop, reboot and stand nearby giggling whilst the salesdroid panicked :D
Oh, and it was always dixons we did this in as the salesdroids were usually occupied trying to sell people extended warranties...
If you want to repeat this stunt.
Download some smut (an exercise for the reader, there is no shortage)
Set website on provider of your choosing (an exercise for the reader, there is no shortage)
Go into local DemonCurrysANOther store
point webbrowser at site
leave with a silly grin on face.
Your website might get added to the blacklist one day, until then you can upset people to your hearts desire.
The opposite approach is to have whitelists, but these stop the internet being an open and free place. Only what is acceptable to the powers that be can ever be added to the whitelist.
Moral of the story, don't let your kids run into a store in front of you and start playing with things you have no control over. I was only 10s behind when they ran into the road, won't stop them be hit by a truck.
Yeah I had to do a double-take on that. According to the article she was left 'crying for days' whereas the younger kid thought it was funny. No comment on what the older teenage kid thought but I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that it was the best thing he'd ever seen inside a Curry's store.
Conclusion: The woman needs therapy. The kids will be fine.
"...confessed to crying for days after the incident"
Jesus, let's hope they don't own any family pets. God forbid they die and expose the children to another uncomfortable facet of reality, the tears will be never-ending
I appreciate that at different ages children are too young to properly process some things and that this incident is bad, but come on... the *mother* was crying for days?!
Porn is an adult concept which small children don't/cant understand yet , so why the fuck would they cry about it.
Teens on the other hand dont usually cry when they see porn., they intentionally search for it.
In any event how can he prove that her own children didnt do the searching.
Also if she is so prudish why the hell was she even in the Apple Shop buying a damed gadget for such "sensitive" children. How does she imagine she is going to stop them watching porn when they do own one anyway.
This is not an error at all.
Before leaving I was a "Tech guy" and then a Knowhow "Expert", the Demowireless network has no filtering on it at all, or certainly in the 4 stores I have been in. This was raised "up the chain" to the director of services Jon Shaw but nothing was ever done, although the in last 3 months (since I've left) it may have changed.
A "quirk" of Dixons' installation (ie how cr*ppily it was setup) all the stores with DemoWireless have exactly the same key. A good indication of management was the fact head office "briefed" the password out to everyone over the intra-net (Cool/Click etc) on a daily brief instead of pushing it out to individual managers/techs.
With the constant cutting of staff hours it's just not possible for staff to monitor ipads (laptops run a software demo whereas most tablets are setup for "live" demo) etc all the time, we once had someone set the wallpaper as a picture of their own ar*e!
This is but the tip of the iceberg of the Samsung/Apple Fondleslab War.
Samsung sub-contractors, armed with Android-powered tablets sit outside Currys stores all over Britain and beam hard-core porn links onto innocent iPads in the stores. You can help stop this by reporting sightings of any suspicious cars loitering outside Currys, Dixons, Comet or PC World stores.
