Who should have our data?
Maybe the UK wants to give all our data to the US and will therefore fill up the whole network with Cisco switches to hand over all data to the US.

Have drone licenses, which one has to pass a test for. Also, drones should have some form of registration plates. I know that I am going to be down-voted for not being a droneiphile, but they are basically remote controlled flying vehicles that can cause considerable damage if used incorrectly.
I was very annoyed at Adobe for getting their monthly revenue scheme up. You don't get to own the software, just permanently rent it. I am glad that darktable came up and that has been able to replace Lightroom. Adobe are just nasty ***** who are either happy to cream the money from users and treating them like garbage, otherwise foist malware in the form of Flash. I hope Adobe collapse completely. Horrible company, just like Microsoft who abuse their position.
The problem is that the government refuses to invest in the NHS, instead is slowly handing it over to corporations such as Richard Branston. If there was investment within the UK, then there could be research into using machine learning within the NHS. However, it is all being handed over to the lowest bidder who are desperate to make money and to improve their own infrastructure.
Security updates seem t only appear if you bought your device within the last year. You may be lucky that your phone is supported by LineageOS. This is one of the major flaws with Android ecosystem. Many cheap devices come out, but they never get updates. I have been lucky that my Samsung Galaxy s7 had updates a few months ago, not sure how long that will last though.
I am guessing that the robots doing the screen folding test was in a pristine environment. They should have handed it to some testers to carry out better testing out in the world. I guess they are worried about photos appearing in the press before their official announcement.
At least they are halting the rollout and are not calling users stupid for holding it wrongly.
I will be removing Windows 7 from my laptop and will move onto a Linux infrastructure. I have seen all these people struggling with Windows 10, and I don't want to be a part of that. I may keep a bare bones Windows 7 set up as a virtual machine on the laptop, just in case.
I don't need Adobe Lightroom because I can now use darktable instead. Web browser and word processors already exist under Linux. I don't play games though.
Whenever the US hacks someone, it's all fine. Whenever a non Five-eyes country does the same, all hell breaks loose. Smells of hypocrisy. As long as the US are hacking and spying on others, then I think everyone else should have the same access. If the US forces companies to install backdoors, then don't come running if others find the backdoors and make use of it.
It is annoying when a popular software changes hands, sometimes the new owner totally ruin the software to make it bloatware and phone home with all sorts of data. One example I remember was Quickpic on Android. I can understand that the original owner has probably been promised loads of cash and peace of mind if they would let the new owners take over everything.
Bankers and hedge fund managers destroy the economy and get away with it.
Large corporations such as Apple, Amazon and others avoid paying tax and get away with it.
Equifax loses details of millions of people and get away with it.
Some poor guy pays their tax late and they are fined.
I have noticed in the past few weeks, Facebook have deliberately been making their mobile website, the m. website rather bloaty. Before it was very quick at loading, but now it is very slow. This seems to have coincided with the release of the Facebook lite application.
I am running Oreo on my mobile, does that mean that I can block Facebook lite from accessing almost anything and it would work?
I remember them at my college in the early 1990s. I remember coming in to the college and the mouse wasn't working properly. Other students also said their mice were not working. Some moron had cut up all the rubber mouse balls in the computer labs. The only mice working were the RM Nimbus ones which were metal.
Why do government officials always blame "hackers" whenever they don't want to understand when something does not go their way with computers? Then they call in the police SWAT equivalent.
I hope that the judiciary will agree with the teenager, although I feel like they will side with the government official on this. Most of them do not understand the basics of a computer as witnessed in the questioning of Zuckerberg at congress.
There needs to be special judges who understand computer technology as well as the law who should be the judge of computer related "crimes".
