Not for telemarketing

If a droid did do telemarketing then it would actually obey the law and remove you from their list so you would't get a f call again rather than the same annoying company the next day or even not call you at all because your on the telephone no preference list that human callers don't care about even though they are breaking the law.

Medieval punishment of cutting off their hands needs to be enforce for everyone who works in the industry even if they don't have a phone oh and even if you enter a building where cold calls are made... you going to hell.

GCHQ wants to set your passwords. In a good way


Real World!

You get a local butcher or shop fitter to remember this: jL1EjNx(co?Nz$b

The whole concept of letters for passwords need to change you try getting some one out-side in the IT industry to remember a "strong" password they would rather jump off a cliff.

OpenOffice project 'all but dead upstream' argues prominent user


I was comparing these two the other week, a bug in libreoffice spread sheet stopped me from adding up columns, a well know bug apparently so I had to switch to OpenOffice, that was not installed by default on by Ubuntu Desktop OS, I got OpenOffice working but could only run the app from root/terminal as the icon refused run with an error (a well know bug apparently).

So quite frankly both of these two projects both need some love and TLC

E-commerce enterprises gently told to update those protocols ... or else


In terms of SSL protocol if your were fully compliant then you may alienate some Android Phone users, and some using Apple web browsers and of courses very old IE browsers, this is a huge percentage of your market. So really for a real world website its a tough nugget.

But don't forget that even if a web site is not compliant it may be using a 3'd party redirect that takes the user off to another website such as Realex/HSBC or PayPal so there is no card data stored on the "non" PCI/DSS compliant website.
