Re: "The BBC is selling Beeb as a privacy-friendly option"
And probably linked to your iPlayer sign-on.
They missed a trick, they should have called it Auntie Beeb though. Makes a nice change from Big Brother.

What "naughtiness" have peaceful protesters done? What naughtiness have people just going about their daily lives done?
None whatsoever. There is no "naughtiness on their side" but you're tarring them with the same brush because the title is "naughtiness on all sides".
Why? Only you would know. At the very least, your title is completely wrong.
The campaign also allegedly used hacked legitimate accounts to push past Twitter’s monitoring systems. That was a riskier proposition – because people tend to notice when their own account suddenly starts tweeting messages they didn’t write
Not if they left Twitter ages ago. You can usually tell when it happens, messages that sound like they came from a normal person peter out, then a few months later they suddenly re-appear, only it's politics all day every day.
There is no naughtiness on all sides, this is a false equivalence. You are mixing peaceful protesters with a bunch of opportunists and calling them one side, then when the police or National Guard on the other side attack peaceful protesters or just people going about their own business it doesn't matter because there were also opportunists. It also fails to take into account years of "naughtiness" from the police to get to this point.
It is also straight out of the Trump playbook, if you remember when he said that there were "very fine people, on both sides" and "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" over Charlottesville. It could be argued that it's technically correct, and yet it's complete nonsense.
Also after seeing things like the National Guard firing at residential areas I think the US is dangerously close to the edge. It only needs a small push to move from constant false rhetoric and the army firing on their own citizens to cancelling elections. Once there, how do you find your way back out of that?
I really do think an authoritarian such as Trump who can't stand losing surrounded by sycophantic yes-men that he's put in place could go there. All because of the nonsense rhetoric that he's whipped up over the past four years hasn't been challenged the way it should have been and the "bunker boy" taunt that pushed him over the edge.
Well they could make it reveal for just a few minutes by clicking on it, if you wanted to see it again after that you have to click on it again.
The bank's BOFH should have every remote PC saved in the TV account for passwordless access anyway (if the bank's paying for it).
(I didn't downvote.)
There is law and then there's guidence:
Why there is law and then guidence is something I'm not entirely sure about, when other countries have managed to have codified it all legally.
Odd how he manages to drop these 'dog-whistle' quotes (not for the first time) in his tweets yet somehow it's explained away as meaning exactly the opposite.
"There is only one way to handle looters and arsonists during a riot and that is to shoot them on sight. I've let the word filter down: When the looting starts the shooting starts," Headley said, according to a New York Times report from 1970.
On Friday afternoon, Trump tried to defend his remarks, tweeting, "Looting leads to shooting, and that’s why a man was shot and killed in Minneapolis on Wednesday night - or look at what just happened in Louisville with 7 people shot. I don’t want this to happen, and that’s what the expression put out last night means...."
He probably doesn't want to see it happen in the same way that John Gotti doesn't want to your family get hurt, i.e. it's a threat.
I don't know if we should trust that much in Google's and Apple's app store review procedures that much:
There is no version that has no bugs, but some releases are lemons which are best avoided (Lion, Sierra, Catalina).
And Catalina is the gift that keeps on giving:
I have an account from ages ago and wasn't notified by EasyJet. I haven't flown with them in years and no flights appear in the flight history, so after trying and failing to find the button for deleting my account and reading that same nonsense instead, I just decided to fill it up with random data and point the e-mail address to mailinator.
iWork might not be that good, but is there anything that isn't a fact in what I wrote?
Apple committing code to a free open-source cross-platform competitor is just not going to happen, they have their own Office suite, they don't have to answer to anyone about how they develop it which suits them just fine, and their committing code to LibreOffice will probably push the project in directions that people don't like.
This does not mean I hate LibreOffice, I use LibreOffice, iWork, and I also use MS Office. I don't use OpenOffice if that makes you feel any better.
They've just done it yet again, thrown out Xamarin Forms (sucks if you ever used that), and come out with a new thing. And this is supposed to be a good?
We are getting to the point of a new framework every 2 years.
Just stick with Win32 and we'll see who blinks first, the huge mass of Win32 developers or MS trying to bork Win32 in Windows 10.
Whenever I have some BT headphones within range of more than one paired device with their BT on, it's pot luck which one they connect to.
So forcing pairing with every Apple device you have doesn't sound like a feature I want, although I'm sure Apple have done something Magic so connecting is better too.
