WhatsApp slaps app hacker chaps on the rack for booby-trapped chat: NSO Group accused of illegal hacking by Facebook

Their defense?

Did they really just use "what about the children and the poor terrorists and drug dealers" as their defense? In the same sentence?


Oneil Stuart

Other countries...?

"national security, and political, civil and human rights"

I hope they broaden their attention to other countries including their own as well.

So, what IS the worst film ever made?

Re: I nominate....

At this point (before I go through the rest of the comments) I have to add

Plus everyone I know who has seen this film starts laughing when someone says "Orange Mocha Frappuccino".

BlackBerry-style LG Android phone outed

Pre 4?

This device is all I wanted from HP/(Palm). But I suppose I will have to get it from LG instead. My Nexus One has freed me from the Pre 2 sliding mechanism but at the cost of too much precision.

Voice-to-text and touch screen keyboards are no match for people's names and non-dictionary word domains; progress has been made, yes, but I think the physical keyboard still rules on these smallish devices.

Calling all readers: Want some new icons?

Re: He Knows. ..

I think his resignation would do more good than harm for the company. At least some chairs would be saved.

Apache terminates 'outdated' web server

Frank (almost) said it

This is a song about a couple of adult people who have spent, oh, quite a long time

together, till one day one of 'em gets tired of patching and decides to leave.

Whether it's the patcher or the patchee who left is unimportant.

It's a breakup.

The lovely marriage of code and support is not over though. It just has a different colour coat.


Obama wants to wring fat dollar from mobile operators

Oneil Stuart

user fees, user fees

While i think it would be ridiculous if the gov't got away with charging a fee like that, it really would be nice for the mobile operators to know what it feels like to be a plain ol' user gouged at whim.

I almost bet he's going to turn it around on them when the lawyers start complaining (Wishful thinking). If the operators don't want to be gouged, they shouldn't gouge their customers.

But this is definitely a strange way to open a dialogue about Net Neutrality.

And I know for a fact that when the Chevy gets to the levy, not only will it be dry, but the operators will be crying poor and looking for their bailout.
