Does it breach civil liberties if a non-vaccinated employee transmits the disease to their colleagues and several die gasping for breath?

> the location is derived from the IP address of the client
Which means it will be wrong 100% of the time. Every site that attempts to determine my location from my IP gets it wrong... about 300 miles away wrong and in the wrong country. They can't even decide which of my ISP's offices my IP belongs to, giving different locations at different times for the same IP.
I used to work with a woman whose password was literally her eldest son's name. When I introduced a password reset policy she added a 1 to the end. Eventually for some reason that I forget she changed it... to her other son's name. The worst part is this was less than 10 years ago.

This idiot shouldn't be in charge of a tuck shop let alone a currency or contracts. Between the scammers, the criminals and the just plain stupid is there anything redeemable about crypto?
Hello Mr Tory politician. Proportional representation is actually much more democratic than FPTP but I wouldn't expect you to admit that since you would lose elections.
I vote in both types of elections and in 30 years have never, ever voted in or out a government via FPTP. I have however managed to get candidates, parties and even governments I wanted from PR.
Don't blame the developers, blame the accout managers and senior management. The developers often don't want to put this crap in but have little choice. Not everone is able to turn down a job because they asked you how to circumvent Safari's privavacy protections in the interview (I did this).
> are they avoiding the international community
No China are more than happy to work with the international community, they already have plans with ESA and Russia for their station. It's the USA they don't want that they don't want to work with (and can't legally thanks to US law) and who can blame them after the last 5 years.
> COVID arguments for vaccination (though oddly that has not taken off in England yet, but seems to be infecting Scottish and Welsh politician's minds).
Actually the Tories brow beat the regional assemblies into accepting vaccine passports and then realised that they are ID cards so went strangely silent on the matter. Funny that, it's almost as if Boris wanted the other leaders to be unpopular with the public.
As a former Liberal voter, Nick Clegg killed all support I had for the party and judging by subsequent elections I'm not the only one. So he effectively gave up all Liberal policies, ideas and manifesto commitments now and forever more by making them completely unelectable. Whch is a very "significant lasting problem from that time."
And it gets worse, I'm now an SNP voter so Clegg may have had a direct hand in destroying the union.
And your developers will leave for better jobs.
Making developers lives harder with slow dev machines is not the answeer, especially since we're talking Android here and you don't develop Android apps on Android. Mid-range devices and older devices are useful in the test drawer but you also need the latest devices so you can test against the latest OS features.
The answer is to teach junior devs to care about resource usage, not tie one hand behind their back to hamper them.
GrubHub's exact MO.
I spent a year writing software for restaurants and I heard a lot of cases of GrubHub setting up a poor quality delivery service without a restaurant's knowledge or permission. In some cases the restaurant had their own delivery service.
Everything I've read about GrubHub, Uber Eats and DoorDash tells me if they say a law is wrong then it is probably the most correct law you could have passed.
This judgement is everything execpt a win for Epic.
Apple get to say they are not a monopoly and don't have to allow other app stores.
Devs get the opportunity to use other payment methods.
Apple still get most of the cash because most devs won't bother with the hassle.
Epic must pay Apple damages.
Apple's deciesion to boot Epic from the store was lawful.
Apple do not have to let Epic or Fortnite back on the store.
Boom! Shot yourself in the foot there Epic. The schadenfreude kept me laughing all weekend.
> People automatically select "I agree" when presented with cookies pop-ups on the internet, she argued, so they don't have meaningful control over personal data.
"People" may do that but I don't. I click REJECT ALL and if that option doesn't exist I close the window.
But then I also do wierd things like read what is written on the screen rather than blindly pressing buttons like a toddler on a sugar rush.
> I absolutely do not believe that airtaxis are going to be a thing.
I know of several air taxi services that are definitely a thing. Of course they use helicopters or light planes, not autonomous drones that fly by blockchain or whatever but they are air taxis.
Apparently WW2, Norway's collaboration with Hitler and the Norwegians fighting against Russia on the eastern front doesn't count as war with Russia. Norway would like us to conveniently forget what happened in the 1940s.
Sorry for the Godwin but this is actual history so it needed to be said.
> Apple's insistence on a floor price of $0.99 disadvantaged developers who wanted to compete with free apps
I have 3 free apps on the App Store so free apps are definitely allowed. I fail to see how a minimum price of 99c (which is a lie since free is possible) is disadvantaging developers of free apps. What I do see is someone who wrote a shitty app (baby names ffs) trying to get some money from the big corporate bad guy du jour.
That Start Menu does look terrible, lacks features I actually use and expands on the one feature I wish they'd remove - searching for anything other than apps. If I open the Start Menu I want to start an app, I don't want to search for documents, contacts or where to buy a kitchen sink and I definitely never, ever want to search the web. If I want to search the web I'll use a web browser.
I guess Win11 is going to be another version for me to skip like 98 (first edition), ME, XP, Vista and 8. :(
> why does this need to be done on device, if its only for photos uploaded to the icloud, why not just scan for the photos when they hit Apples servers and leave the privacy in place on the device?
Your suggestion is allowing the security to gallop out the open stable door. Plus it would mean Apple handling CSAM and having it on their servers, by scanning on device they can prevent the images getting to any Apple owned equipment and prove the images were in your possesion. Something that may become important when it comes to a court case.
> Branching and merging is an edge case that can be easily circumvented by talking to your colleagues.
If you work on a codebase of any size, even on your own then branching solves many problems that can't be solved by talking to anyone. In the simplest case, how do you fix a bug in the current version while developing the next version if you don't use branches?
With git branching is a cheap operation and used correctly merging is usually trivial.
Because we'd all be better off as company slaves working for less than a living wage, with no paid time off, little to no maternity / paternity leave and strapped down by Zuck every night so Palantir can probe us for data. Fuck yeah!
