“[Since] the size of the Milky Way is a million times smaller than the size of the Universe"

This bit confuses me.

If this were true then surely there could only be 1 million galaxies in the universe max , or am i missing something ?

Biggest Kodi sweep: Brit cops nab five, bag some dodgy sticks


Opportunity != Intent


Most of these "fully loaded" boxes/sticks are fully loaded with shite anyway.

Anyone with half a brain can easilly install kodi and exodus/uk turks which is all you need really

Do the police/FACT really think they will make a dent in the number of people starting to use these devices ?

I personally think that only Sky etc dropping their prices down to around 10% of what they are now will do that.

London cops hunt for drone pilots who tried dropping drugs into jail


Re: Pointless waste of time, in my opinion.

Iv yet to meet a stoned person looking for a fight !!


Re: Details

They wont care about the drone ..

"allegedly" , 1 ounce of "spice" , the synthetic cannabis that they are all mad about at the moment, costs around £60 outside of prison, and is worth around £1600 on the inside ..

That bundle looks like it contains around 2 ounce.

They only need one successful drop and the profits are huge - the drone will be seen as disposable

Re: Details please

"What markets are affected? "

It's safe to say all of them except (maybe including) the official play store.

"How does this stuff get on the handset?"

People download it.

"What device security was disabled to enabled it to get there?"

Users must have clicked the option to "allow install from unknown sources"

E-cigarettes help save lives, says Royal College of Physicians


Re: First paragraph

Re: First paragraph

Yeah, well if you actually gave a toss you'd look at the stats and see that smoking rates are falling in near record numbers (similar to that seen when public bans get implemented), while vaping rates are rising. Now, that's correlation, not causation, but as there's been no massive anti-smoking ordnance introduced with these drops, only the introduction of e-cigs...well, you do the math.



We're doing SETI the wrong and long way around, say boffins


Re: ridiculous

"How did the universe start?

If one subscribes to the "big bang" theory then everything that was created at that time would, throughout its life, be at a similar point in development to everything else created at that same time.

It is my view therefore, that the word "ridiculous" is somewhat provocative, and can neither be proved nor disproved until/unless there is proof to the contrary.


Not really ..

Its more to do with the age of the solar system, or more specifically , the age of the planet ..

For example, a solar system out there that has been kicking about for ~5.6 billion years, would have had a 1 billion year head start on us ..

Triple-murderer prisoner keeps mobile phone in his butt for a week


Re: Love the honesty

"I do have an interesting question though. Where's the charger for all these phones in prison ? Or do they standardise the model and have charged batteries smuggled in, I think we should be told."

They usually smuggle in a small usb charging cable which they then connect up to the communal wing playstation or whatever to charge their phones ..

I always assumed that they were trying to come up with a "catchy" word that people would adopt as a generic term for searching the web ..

As in "I'll just Google it" - they wanted people to start saying "I'll Bing it" ..

They should have chosen a less shit word

Re: There is only one way.

I heard somewhere that the spam email writers are now making their mails LESS sophisticated by design..

That way, anyone stupid enough to click on the link- is more likely to be stupid enough to buy product/ give away personal details on the resulting page ..

Rubbish WPS config sees WiFi router keys popped in seconds


Re: Dumb question here

"The old lady next door would have to grab my phone when i'm not looking and check its mac to know what to spoof though"

No .. A hacker can use tools to see the mac addresses of all devices already communicating with the router ..

And then he can just spoof one of those


Re: Dumb question here

-yes the hacker would have to be in wifi range .. ie parked down the road with a pringle tin antenna ect.

-No, I don't need your routers admin password to poison your ARP table and then perform any number of MITM attacks

-I type this :- macchanger --mac=00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan1, and my mac is whatever I want it to be

Boffins attempt to prove the universe is just a hologram


Interesting times

Im inclined to believe this will eventually be proved true ...

My personal educated guess is that our universe is similar to the interior of a black hole, with all the information spread out over the event horizon in 2 dimensions ..

Interesting times indeed

Google on Gmail child abuse trawl: We're NOT looking for other crimes


Re: slippery slope or lawsuit magnet?

As they are not really looking through our stuff as such, but a robot is scanning it for known traces of bad stuff ..

Isn't this akin to sniffer dogs running over bags at an airport ??

Any illegal stuff detected, bags opened ..

Just a thought ..

And as long as they just use the "child pron dog" and keep the others caged, then im fine with it
