Re: *When* was it in the TOS?
There's probably a line in the TOS about changing the TOS as they see fit. They probably even told everyone they'd changed them e.g. "Please read and accept our new TOS!"... What do you mean which bit changed? that's for us to know and you to meticulously compare the two versions of our TOS that you studied in great detail before accepting...

re:what do you find interesting about it?
I can't speak for the OP (obv) - but I'd wager that although the two assistants are supposed to complement each other, there would likely be competition and this might improve the operation of both (from a ML perspective). I doubt it will be interesting, but it could be...
Re: One thing to note.
Don't know about the Rockwell software, but for the SCADA package I'm using (Zenon) the fixes are only causing problems with comms drivers. So it's possible RSLogix (all however many versions there are now!) is fine; the article suggests it's RSLinx (comms) that has problems - so fix that and Logix may be OK... wild speculation but hey.

I clicked the link too, but have java script disabled so ... irony or something.
Thing is it's not a bad idea, if someone lingers on page (possibly even reads it) for 20-30s ... I imagine bit coin mining has got to the point where it probably isn't worth the effort, but there are new 'bit coins' all the time, mine, cash in, move on .. it could work. couldn't it?
Re: Not just Solr, but Luwak - and all open source
This approach - fact checking - seems to be the most sensible approach to the problem, after all the main issue with fake news is that in general it appears to be true (for a given set of preconceptions), so simply parsing the text and looking for inconsistencies probably wouldn't be enough and would likely throw up a lot of false positives. The only sensible way to counter fake news is to point out how it is wrong (with references), and of course there are 350 million reasons why this won't actually work either.
Re: "People are living increasingly social lives"
I only have a pink and green paper job that I got for free and have never had to pay to renew it.
You know the paper licences are not longer valid don't you? (Since last year as I recall -- discovered after a snafu trying to hire a car...) -- you might want to check, if you still drive.
Re: “allow Admin users to circumvent access controls”
Default credentials makes it much easier to install and test equipment like this, especially if you've got a number of different people all needing to tweak things. If you use proper secure credentials too early you end up having to distribute them to more people than you might want to and then have to change them all when you finish, it's not worth the hassle.
Of course when you're done you still need to make sure you've setup proper credentials, but hopefully you'll have a procedure in place to make sure that gets done...
Re: I can't see banner ads
Finally the quality of online ads is awful. Supposedly respectable organisations will accept flashing ads that say, "click on this to win a free iPad." Or ...
This. It's got to the point were clicking on an ad seems about as safe as clicking a link in an email from a Nigerian prince...
No, Kim Kardashian's plump posterior's pixels did not break the App Store – just this El Reg man's mind
Tanks and guitars in the 12th century just looked and felt wrong I think it was just supposed to be absurd - it was an entrance, mostly irrelevant. The significant bit (possibly) was when Missy said something about the doctor kidnapping the presidents wife and being a she - one of which was lie (not verbatim obv), maybe building up to the next re-incarnation...
I thought it was good - nothing particularly original, but nicely done all the same.
Re: The actual collective noun is "Malware".
Yeah, but this is a collective noun for security vulnerabilities; malware is something that might use or cause a vulnerability, but wouldn't be the vulnerability. It's entirely possible for the malware itself to contain vulnerabilities... then it would all gets a bit recursive.
Re: @Redneck ... @ 6x7=42
...he took a job with the intention of stealing any and all documents he could... [Citation needed].
...is that he's sitting in a city in Russia... He's not in Russia by choice.
Erm what's left... nothing.
He's a hero (IMO) - a proper one, not one of those namby pamby media ones.
Re: Another week...
...and within the next week or so there'll be another article about how we all use/re-use bad passwords. As if that will make any difference. I try to make an effort with passwords for any site I give my credit card/personal details to, but clearly I might as all well use "password" for all the good it'll do.
Re: "The homogenisation of triple-A games continues apace"
Pray tell which are those games of which you speak?
OK, here are some recent ones I rate (no particular order):
Life is Strange (interactive story)
The Talos Principle (Portal-esque puzzle game)
Niko Through the Dream (Surreal 3d puzzle game)
This war of mine (side scrolling adventure game about civilians in a war zone)
Her Story (odd video, interactive 'game' consisting of searching videoed police interviews to work out a story... better than it sounds!)
Re: Who first posted it on Twitter?
From the linked document -
A. Pierson created copyrightable photographs and registered them with the
U.S. Copyright Office.
B. A Twitter user or users copied and displayed the Infringing Image
without license or permission from Pierson.
Obviously this is from the complaint and hasn't been proved (or whatever the correct term is) - but not looking good for Twitter.
"Then, using artificial intelligence, we want the robots to be able to read and record the values on the instrumentation, and to know autonomously whether they are normal or not. If there is an abnormal situation, the robot has to alert the remote operator,"
Heh, you'd think some could invent some kind of supervisory control program to do that sort of thing, maybe include a bit of data acquisition to remotely read the instruments too, that way the robots wouldn't need to wander around the plant and could lounge around in a specially designed room drinking oil all day...
Re: It puzzles me too
That we live on top of a burning molten mass and have another one above us, yet we are still so focused on man made global warming. Because even considering these things, the temperature has gone up faster than expected, with the cause looking likely to be increased levels of CO2 for which we appear to be responsible for. In this case it's the first time this geothermal heat has been measured, so we don't have any history to spot any trends. It's all interesting, but associating it with climate change doesn't really help.
