As this has bug been in the wild for over six months I can see Apple has been true to form in ignoring it.

This is nothing more than a public relations flag waving exercise for the USA and nothing more. We Don't need to do it.
It would be cheaper to walk around planet earth picking the stuff up off the floor? We have already identified the bigger impact points and the answers would be the same.
This would make one hell of a movie.
Firstly he gets a job that supplies him with information of crimes against humanity, and he releases the evidence to the public. His bosses slap him into a marine stockade and then subject him to psychological torture by removing his spectacles, making him blind as a bat and causing him headaches. They continue by taking away all his clothes and humiliated him by making him stand every two hours in front of another man. That introduced sleep depravation which continued for months. Then when the media got hold of it his bosses had to put him on suicide watch to cover their backs. His bosses were then forced to transfer him out of a prison run by themselves to a civilian prison. The boss of the civilian prison decided the suicide tag was completely untrue by giving him back his clothes and spectacles, and stopping the sleep depravation and suicide watch.
Once out of his bosses hands his bosses decided to supply the judge, jury, defence lawyer court room, and rules they had to play by. His bosses even paid their wages. If his bosses hadn't stacked the cards enough they then held secret meetings with judges to cement the result.
His bosses then promptly banned the torture from being used as evidence of torture.
...........and all but one lived happily ever after.
To find Manning guilty of a capital offence and execute him would have made the guy a folk hero, letting him rot in a prison would not. It was the only verdict that they could come up with.
The torture in the marine prison, the private meetings between judge and prosecution in which the defence was barred sings out rigged. It was rigged and only an idiot would think otherwise.
The times I have visited websites that have porn advertisements running down the sides have increased beyond a joke. I have no problem with porn provided it's in the right place, hell I have downloaded the odd movie myself. Most of those that run porn websites though have taken it beyond what most consider acceptable. The times I have Googled my way to a website only to find it full of flash advertisements with someone shoving his fishing tackle into someone's face or whatever is getting to be a problem. there was talk of creating a top flight domain just for porn, like XXX or something along those lines. I like porn but only when I decide to visit it. If I want porn then I go look for it, I draw the line though when porn comes looking for me. Anything that has even the remotest chance of taking it out of mainstream internet is fine by me. Put it in a box in the corner where I can find it.
As for the Anonymous comedy act, they are beginning to piss me off. What does crashing up local government email servers suppose to serve? Yet again the average guy on the street will get the fallout.
We need something with teeth to tackle the massive abuses of the press and Leveson came up with some excellent ideas. The press were out of control and innocent men women and children were getting hurt. In my 57 years I have seen thousands of lives ruined, even those of kids. John Leslie the TV presenter publicly accused of rape. Christopher Jefferies, an innocent landlord publicly held up as murdering one of his tenants. These were not isolated incidents, these were the normal every day antics of the media. The press council was an awesome joke. Every national hauled up in front of them for infringing their own rules walked away with the ruling going against them, only to do it again, and again, and again afterwards. You cannot have the media police the media when the media have the morals of a dung heap. Leveson was one hundred percent right.
With the global nature of cybercrime this is more than welcome. Most scams involve criminals from one country stitching up a victim from another. Most criminals get away with it because of those borders. With the aussies onboard there is now 39 less borders to hide behind. Singing from the same hymn sheet is the only way to tackling this long standing problem.
I do hope they sort the glitch out. It's been a marvel of human guile and ingenuity getting it there. Now that I find that it's got less computational power than my clock radio I’m more than a little impressed, especially considering the outstanding results it has sent back so far.
Whatevere the views are there is one undenyable fact. THE L.H.C. opened the world of physics to the average person on the street. I, and a lot like me never gave phisics a second thought. The hole L.H.C. project instilled interest in a way rarely seen in a boring subject. Even when they got the power supply wrong and blew the L.H.C. up it gained peoples interest in the subject.
I take my hat off to them
The U.S. House Intelligence Committee has recommended that the Chinese Huawei Technologies company be declared a security risk and threat to national security because "China has the means, opportunity, and motive to use telecommunications companies for malicious purposes" (The Telegraph 8th October).
Now for ten points........
Who supplies most, if not all, of the routers used by BT in the U.K. today.?
In every case of a DDoS the FBI have a very successful history in hunting down and prosecuting those responsible. Their history in this makes it undeniable. They are good, real good at it.
With that undeniably outstanding success rate a prosecution should be not far away. What will happen in this case we all know. Every single excuse in the book will be used to explain the failure to even start an investigation. That one simple fact will prove beyond anyone’s doubt that it was either Santa or the feds that were involved
Not being the brightest spark on the planet i always thought the removals were complaint based. Being bot based i have to ask why has this buggy bot been allowed to roam around YouTube with these flaws for so long? Why hasn't there been remedial work on the program? As there is a long history of errors to work with.. If it took me six hours to upload a long video i would be more than a little upset especially if it is accepted as acceptable collateral damage.
If i remember correctly Microsoft had something like this in their long and dodgy past. They had groups that were both open to all, as well as invite only. They also had an excellent forum setup.
Correct me if i'm wrong but didn't Microsoft shit on everyone and close the whole lot down, leaving everyone screwed?
