Bill Gates debunks 'coronavirus vaccine is my 5G mind control microchip implant' conspiracy theory


Just LOL...

Who comes up with this sh*t?!

I mean the guy retired years ago and just dedicated himself to giving his money away, but not stupidly but to good causes which he verifies himself.

Quite a switch to mind control, if the guy was still power hungry wouldn't he still be running Microsoft?!

He has every right to take over control of MS today and run it his own way but he doesn't, now after years of retirement he wants to control people? Just doesn't add up.

I suggest we respond with equally stupid articles like...

"It's true it's mind control and the only way to stop it is to jump form a really high cliff or building, you won't die it will just kill the chip!"

Let Darwin take over as if you'll believe this sh*t you'll believe anything!

P.S. I've been switching to Linux recently, must be Bill's doing lol. ;)

That awful moment when what you thought was a number 1 turned out to be a number 2


English is English. American's speak US English which is a derivative but it's not the same language, in English Cheque is Cheque. Colour is Colour etc.

Also just because 100's millions type something wrong doesn't make it right, otherwise the correct way to write OH MY GOD in 2020 would be OMG!!!! Back would be BK and god know what else, eventually it probably will be but no for some time yet.

840m People speak English or a version of it, US are just a small slice of that, at least most the other countries get it right! ;)


Anyway it's all irrelevant, we'll all be speaking Mandarin soon enough!

Surge in home working highlights Microsoft licensing issue: If you are not on subscription, working remotely is a premium feature


Re: The most simple way is not mentioned here?

But then they are connecting a Home Machine to an Office VPN, if their Home PC has a nasty worm on it the whole office network can be compromised, this will not pass proper security standards in 2020. :(

Apple drops a bomb on long-life HTTPS certificates: Safari to snub new security certs valid for more than 13 months


Re: I understand

There is that then there is also the fact you have to leave Port 80 and Port 443 open for it to negotiate the renewal which is so fustrating, I renew, close 80 wait for the notice, open 80 renew manually then close Port 80 again.

Why O Why can they not just renew it through Only Port 443?!

Game over, LAN, game over! Windows software nasty Emotet spotted spreading via brute-forced Wi-Fi networks


Seriously when will people learn to use decent Passwords?! Been beating this stick for as long as I can remember and yet still in 2020 it's a problem.

It seemed for a while that companies were starting to enforce password security but those efforts appear to be a distant forgotten memory.

Like these 'SmartHome' devices which fixed default passwords and the like, just a joke, forget GDPR we need to get this **** put into Law, force companies to force users to set secure passwords, it's the only way and the sonner re realise it the better!

Meet Clippy 9000: Microsoft brags about building Earth's largest AI language model, refuses to let it out of the lab



God I hated that, like most I think, however oddly and ironically it would be nice to see it make a successful return.

Hate speech row: Fine or jail anyone who calls people boffins, geeks or eggheads, psychology nerd demands


I was called many, many names at school and Nerd \ Geek was always pretty high up there but they were also the two which really didn't bother me, mind you I have a pretty thick skin in that regards, words don't me a lot to me people use them losely to say the least, though that's not to say they nver did!

I remember back in support days the amount of time I would ask a user if they have rebooted to be told yes, then when I checked the NIC card it's been connected for 18 days or something stupid, but sure yeah they rebooted this morning, just my reboot there and then just happened to work! :/

The BS people talk, mind you can you blame them? After alll if our Politians are the example we should be lead by then the only thing we should ever say truthfully is out name, or you wife's name if it's a speeding ticket!

Help! I bought a domain and ended up with a stranger's PayPal! And I can't give it back


Funny I was thinking just last night, should I move my Paypal to my Domain Email Account, as I hardly use my Yahoo one for much these days other than Paypal.

I nearly did too but couldn't be arsed and thought this weekend, suddently I don't want to thanks, I think I'll move it to gmail instead, not that I am planning to let my Domain exprie but still not wort the risk!

Nameless Right To Be Forgotten Google sueball man tries Court of Appeal – yet again


Re: comfy chair or thumbscrews

He should lose anyway IMO, a 'spent conviction' is still an conviction, would you want a former bank robber running your bank just because he hasn't been caught for X years, I doubt it.

It maybe legally spent but in my opinion this is valid public information and useful at that.

I seem to remember reading that it was a previous fraud conviction but maybe wrong, if not though I can't really see how this isn't information which should remain public!

Anon man suing Google wants crim conviction to be forgotten


So what you are basically saying is that "ABC" should be sueing Alphabet Corp lol.

Almost sounds like Little Toe sueing Person for damages after being stubbed!

Vodafone's spending pays off - but EE hangs on to UK network crown


Re: Vidafone .....

Vodafone, great network?!

Not in St.Albans it's not, they removed their one antena and shafted everyone in the area, I know many have switched since this mess including my dad who with 20 years with Vodafone has switched so we can once again get reception at home, also vastly overpriced compared to competitors based on recent research for my dad's upgrade!

Can't complain at EE been very good for me in every aspect, WIFI Calling is a god-send though I believe the other networks are finally getting involved in this.

Three lost my support with the contact UPGRADE calls I used to get, even when NOT DUE!!!

O2 who I used to work for are just miles behind.

Currently there is no real competition in the UK market IMO, EE in a league of their own which is a shame for consumers!!!

Virgin Media seems to have some great deals these days, also they use EE backbone which is nice, but it concerns me that I could sign up with them then they can switch to another backbone provider at anytime completely changing the offering, same with all the providers who piggy back.

SIM Only don't be tied down best way to go IMO, pay for a handset up front, if you cant switch SIM only save then buy it, get insurance through Bank (cheaper and easier)!

Though not sure about anyway else but even as a Techie I can't find reason to upgrade from an S7 Edge it does everything more than well enough, anyone else struggling to find a good reason to upgrade?!

I can see a slow down in the mobile market coming in the next few years!


Keep your hands on the f*cking wheel! New Tesla update like being taught to drive by your dad


Mile per crash for Human's is far, far higher than Mile per crash for Autonomous but that doesn't seem to be newsworthy.

That said I get the concern and it's rightful as there is still a number of unsolved issues some of which are pretty damn big and important and I am not sure Tesla can be trusted to police this roll out which is how it appears to be happening.

How could the Facebook data slurping scandal get worse? Glad you asked


I hate FB and wished it would die off but it won't and they will continue abusing peoples trust because most people don't give a damn! :/

Bored 'drivers' pushed Google Waymo into ditching autopilot tech


The % of accident for Driverless cars per mile is way, way lower than the % of accidents for Human drivers in the same conditions, leagues apart.

The think is nobody seems to realise the car should be completely redesigned with it!

LastPass now supports 2FA auth, completely undermines 2FA auth


Don't get why people would move because of this silly feature, surely the easy option is just don't use the feature?

Sysadmin 'trashed old bosses' Oracle database with ticking logic bomb'


Re: Conversion?

Is that true? In a shop you can pocket items quite legally, it's only stealing if you leave the premises without paying, so given that the hammer didn't leave the grounds, is it theft?!

Robots are killing jobs after all, apparently: One droid equals 5.6 workers


Major Rethink...

The world will require a major rethink in the next 100 years probably a lot less, sooner or later we will either have to switch from a money driven economy based or everyone working.

To a recreational driven economy where anyone works by choice rather than necessity!

The problem with that is though, if you destroy money, you destroy power and there is people with far too much power who will do anything to stop that day coming!

Going for a Darwin Award?

LI Batteries and water don't mix, so laddies & gentlemen, DON'T TAKE YOU VAPE IN THE BATHROOM!

Bet he just had a hot steaming shower, Vape & Battery sitting nearby soaking it all up, then he goes for a puff, BOOM!

If the batteries were properly sealed it should be ok, but with steam it would only require the slightest of gaps for the moister to seep in! :/

Either he didn't know this or he was going for a Darwin!

FBI let alleged pedo walk free rather than explain how they snared him


This is a very valid and worrying point, you can bet he'll be public enemy number 1 now with many yet as you say he has been proven of nothing.

Trial my media is BS in my opinion, CONVICTION BY MEDIA would be much more accurate, when was the last time you read a "Guys didn't do anything" story?! They don't exist, it's only guy \ woman suspected of XYZ stories!

His name was not required for this article to be printable, it should have been removed, I just hope in this case he is guilty as then I have zero sympathy for him!



Sorry but I think this is a given, they have requested back doors in every OS, every Encryption Tool and Encrypted Messaging Service, they even want a back door for standard SSL stuff, there is nobody to request it from with TOR they can just do it.

You still think it's a perhaps?!

If they haven't got a backdoor in TOR then my name is President Hillary George Obama Trump!


FBI don't want to admit breaking the law or they won't reveal the Back Door they have?

One of the two surely?!

AI gives porn peddlers a helping hand


You just need to find the brail porn sites, that's why I always buy The Sun paper in brail, page 3 is awesome! ;)

Microsoft sues Wisconsin man (again) for copyright infringement (again)


All to often the big internet based crimes do pay and people pay a portion of their earning back sometimes a huge portion and every now and again someone gets a crippling fine but that is about it. :/

The fact he could pay back 1.13m shows he must have made more as surely he spend some over those years...maybe he has legit businesses I don't know but all to often the numbers show it does pay, very well at times.

They don't get the punishment a drug dealer or a violent criminal does no matter how much they earn.

That said, not sure it's worth it fore the 1 year inside but that was for tax fraud which is about the best way to guarantee prison time!

Sad but true.

UK.gov pays four fellows £35k to do nothing for three months


How can you ask government employees to respond to a survey if they do any work without actually explaining to them what work is?!

Must listen: We've found the real Bastard Operator From Hell



Please some great hits, the kind people want to sing along too, but message over all of the good bits, so get people right into it then just as it gets going, then drill them with the pain and suffering of meaning less looped recorded messages! :)



This is a must have for any phone system, getting setup first thing Tuesday!

Just a shame I cant use it in the blocking software on my mobile too!

Saturn spacecraft immune to mysterious Planet 9's charms


Re: Dwarf Planet...

I don't know I searched the internet trying to find out but the answer seems just out of reach! :/

I don't know where they get it from but I know they get a really short delivery service!

"Nothing too small." is their motto I believe!

*I'll get my coat.


Dwarf Planet...

If a DwarfPlanet is not a planet, are they also suggesting that a DwarfHuman is not a Human?!

You would think they could rise above that easily enough!

I'd sue them if I could be bothered to be offended but life's too short!

YOU! DEGRASSE! It's time to make Pluto a proper planet again, says NASA boffin


Personally I think a planet should be a hard surface, if we can't land on it, it's not a planet.

Gas Giants and anything else should be classified separately.

I am no expert, but it doesn't sound like these guys are doing a great job at being either!

Server retired after 18 years and ten months – beat that, readers!


I know a Vista machine running as a server which has been going since the dawn of time itself, or at least that's what it feels like, does that count?

Windows 10 marks the end of 'pay once, use forever' software


Last of the Mo-Windows...

Microsoft 2015: "Last ever Windows we won't do another!"

Microsoft 2017: "Introducing Microsoft DOORS OS opening your world to new possibilites! :)

Ok maybe not DOORS but point being last Windows doesn't have to mean last MS OS.

Secure web? That'll cost you, thanks to Mozilla's HTTPS plan


Um break the web, really?

How would this break the web, you said in the article yourself it would only bloke HMTL5 Content!

That means most the old sites which people don't update will be fine as they don't use HTML5, in fact the only ones which do are likely active, it won't stop people doing what they are doing now but it will mean it'll cost to use the new features essentially.

Maybe they should just focus on some of the features like GEO-Location and other potentially private or sensitive items as you suggest.

$10,000 Ethernet cable promises BONKERS MP3 audio experience



Get me 2!

I've been thinking about this for years, I mean I can only listen to my crap quality lose-full MP3's at the moment through a standard CAT 5e.

Now I can spend £7,000 on a cable to listen to the same crap quality music it's sure to make it good?!


I am usually against the death penalty, but GREED or STUPIDITY like this it suddenly sounds quite inviting.

Got a 4King big TV? Ready to stream lots of awesome video? Yeah, about that…



I brought a 4k monitor this week, heard Netflix does 4k so signed up to a free month (glad it was free) as only after do they tell you it's only a small list of supported TV's where 4k is an option, PC users can't watch in 4k.

Inconvenient and cumbersome?!

Doctor Who becomes an illogical, unscientific, silly soap opera in Kill The Moon


You missed the biggest flaw..

Their idea for a return message, turn you lights off to kill it, or leave them on to save it.

Which is very presumptuous that they even received the message clearly, if the lights say on is that an answer or ignorance?

Dr.Who is fast becoming hard to watch.

You’re a LIAR and a CHEAT... la-la-la, I can't hear your lawyers


I know what we need...

We need an app which will rate apps based on their usefulness and worth, if I make the app and give this app a 0 would they sue me for defamation? I bet they would!

Oh wait I know my mistake, I'll let all you vote instead, there sorted.

I even have a catchy name: "AppGreat or AppRape?" We can even simplfy it to a big RED Rape button and a big GREEN Great button, this way the people who actually care about this junk will also be able to use it (provided they are shown first of course, one thing at a time).

Good Riddance Reput!

Silk Road 2.0 busted! At least two arrests as federal crackdown begins


TOR is NOT safe but people stupidly believe it too be, stop for a second and think seriously...


Would the American government not have taken down the distribution of it immediately?



Sorry for caps but I am fed up of reading of people falling foul of the law because they think they are hidden online, if you really want to be hidden online you need some form of intelligence, a little money and a paranoid outlook and even then there are oh so many ways to slip up and suddenly expose yourself.

How much did NSA pay to put a backdoor in RSA crypto? Try $10m – report


Depends how it was offered....

NSA: $10m for a Backdoor?

CO: Sod Off.

NSA: $10m for a Backdoor or we force you to do it under the official secrets act for nothing?

CO: Hm well actually now you say it, it does seem like a good idea!

But then they would never use that act for such things sur...oh wait.

Cardslurping kingpin caged for 18 years over Carderplanet forum


Re: Who appointed America as the world's policeman, judge and jury?

Because everyone's Prison's are over crowded and in the EU Human Right's law's are giving governments a problem.

In the US they don't acknowledge it and though California has just been made my a court of law to reduce their prison polulation by 25% every other state can keep cramming them in.

*Plus then can afford it.

Microsoft: Here, we'll make it easy for you Gmail lot. Meet our Outlook.com movers


Re: Change of address

I am pretty sure they are referring to Google Apps & Outlook.com both of which allow you to use your own personal domain so no need to change address if this already exists.

Furthermore this will be aimed more as businesses which may have many user accounts in gmail which they would otherwise need to export, import etc.

All in all a good idea then if they want to get Google customers which we all know they do.
