Re: Meanwhile in the real world
And if you check back in January, the availability will have slipped to December 2023. They've been playing this game for the last two years.
Yep, something is definitely fishy there.

"Moreover, the EFF's repeated harping on this point reflects a sense in the developer community that Google says it listens to community input but fails to translate that input into meaningful changes to its plans."
The famous line from Krylov's fable "The cook and the cat" comes to mind:
А Васька слушает, да ест
Just tried to create an open hotspot named "R%s%s%s" on my Android. The iPhone 8 (14.6) sitting next to it does not auto-connect to it. When trying to connect manually the iPhone says "Unable to join the network" and then WiFi turns itself off and cannot be turned back on again until the iPhone is restarted.
So much for the apple store idea. If you could get it to auto-connect then this could indeed wreak havoc in the turtle-neck department.
"We also pushed the aircraft to its limits during flight tests, assessed the behaviour of the aircraft in failure scenarios, and could confirm that the aircraft is stable and has no tendency to pitch-up even without the MCAS."
So it boils down to 346 people dead because of a bodged software fix to a theoretical problem. You could not make this up. This is truly the modern equivalent of having propeller blades jammed with red tape.
This is a recent MS trend across all their apps. Just the other day I opened Excel on my Android phone to add up some figures on the go. No can do: not without signing in to an MS account. Until you sign in you can only view files, no editing allowed anymore. Just a few months back that was still possible.
Now they do the same to Minecraft.
Seems like this Microsoft's me-too obsession with slurp is like addiction spiraling out of control.
"Second Variety". No direct attribution and different plot of course and that's why I said "inspired by". It's only my subjective opinion but does the idea of robots building other sophisticated robots, indistinguishable from humans, designed to infiltrate and kill sound kind of familiar?
It's worth noting that out of the listed titles four (Blade Runner, Terminator, Total Recall and Minority Report) are based on or inspired by Philip K. Dick's stories. Then there was alo Paycheck and Ajustment Bureau but perhaps we aren't quite ready yet for those predictions to come true.
LDS: too true, but a certificate original does not necessarily say much about for whom it has been issued.
I dare anyone to determine, only by examining the certificate in the browser, that the reg's SSL cert has actually been issued to situation publishing (or to whoever manages the site).
The latest crop of browsers throwing fits about non-SSLed connections only makes websites bolt on free SSL just to shut up those pesky browser warnings. Does it make the net any more scammer safe? Not a bit, the problem has just been swept deeper under the carpet.
Why don't you enlighten us a little then? Let's take a prime example, the Reg's own SSL certificate for instance, issued by none other than CloudFlare. When viewing the certificate in Firefox, the field "issued to Organization (O)" says Cloudflare and "Common Name (CN)" is theregister.co.uk. Where can a user check "for whom" the certificate has been issued? How can you tell if this actually be a stand-up pillar of journalism or a wretched hive of scum and villainy? (on second thought, never mind...)
More like a remake of the 2002 Attack of the Clones
Palpatine: "It is with great reluctance that I have agreed to this calling. I love democracy. I love the Republic. Once this crisis has abated, I will lay down the powers you have given me!"
Worked out nicely for that Republic
