Deadline draws near to avoid auto-joining Amazon's mesh network Sidewalk


Re: I wonder if...

it is very very hard at higher frequencies.

at about 1GHZ it's close to 1cm for a wave length.

the issue is that anything more than a 1CM gap allows higher frequencies in.

so air holes are out....

Generally metalised plastics do very well....

be 100% clear that unless your phone is "off" you are not off.

also "off" is not a physical state, it is a computer coded state that operates some mode inside the phone.

and as such can easily be bypasses to be "on".

the only real way is to remove the phone battery...... but strangely that's not an option any more......


Yep but most of this shit is going to backfire spectacularly.....

WE were doing "Bag tracking" devices exactly the same as the apple "tile" credit card sized crap

it's an off the shelf product.

but then the Samsung .... let's burn the phones fiasco started & airlines banned the tech.

so all the bag tags with lithium batteries was banned, and now they are trying to re-introduce the tech.

1Password targets developers with Secrets Automation, acquisition of SecretHub



used to be good.......

you could have the standalone app and pay for upgrades...

Then they decided to fuck everyone and shove a money hose up your ass.

Converted it to a "cloud version" and started charging monthly,......

WTF would you want all your highly confidential p.w stored in the cloud?

THEN it leaked that the P.W were not actually protected..... when the app loads it totally decrypts all the p.w & stores them in memory.....

but that was spun...... to "it's highly unlikely that the p.w can be recovered in their un- encrypted state..."

UK reseller sues Microsoft for £270m in damages claiming prohibitive contracts choke off surplus Office licence supplies


There is a complete "rip off" made by a Chinese software company called kingsoft

problem is...... you are replacing MS with perhaps a worse vendor...


Re: Sympathy?

They do the same with fonts....

recently we found old documents had huge sections of empty areas....

so our old pdf/ stored document archive is basically useless...

No, no, let's hear this out, says judge waving away Apple's attempt to kill MacBook Pro Flexgate lawsuit


No one has actually asked WHY Apple keep making products that keep failing for strange reasons.

when you have ultra reliable components in a product from known manufacturers, how else are you going to build in obsolescence?

Ah that's right...... start making your own CPU & silicon.... Trip back to 94 anyone ?

Red Hat pulls Free Software Foundation funding over Richard Stallman's return


If people are not careful , the likes of Google, Microsoft & Facebook.. will own opensource within a few years. (they are already on most of the controlling "boards")

Because if you don't check the fascist left woke check box , u ain't never gonna be involved in the process of anything...

It's already started with the removal & policing of language in software, these clowns are forcing their views on the world and that is what fascists do,....

OVH says burned data centre’s UPS, batteries, fuses in the hands of insurers and police

now move the decimal place by the number of users....

I haven't bought new pants for years, why do I have to keep buying new PCs?


Apple have started locking the OS down.

you can no longer install previous versions, an if you think keeping an "old" version will work...

they lock, plus they have key components stored on the apple servers.

enforced upgrades...

Malware attack that crippled Mumbai's power system came from China, claims infosec intel outfit Recorded Future


Re: Christ, what assholes

yep... but so what?

what are you going to do about it?


This is why "God" was invented... so that people could right the wrongs that were beyond their control or at least believe that they would get theirs in the after life.

Ever felt that a few big tech companies are following you around the internet? That's because ... they are


you want to run it against the daily-mail in the UK...

as many as 80-100 for other trackers....

Linux Mint users in hot water for being slow with security updates, running old versions


Updating by default is just lazy IT.

It is also very risky and can easily totally destroy a critical system.

Just try it with tomcat & a background database....

go try it with postgresql....., sometimes there is more to it than just shoving in some new updated code.

Intel sues former staffer for allegedly stealing Xeon cloud secrets in USB drives and exploiting info at Microsoft



"impressive" forensics.......

GLPI & the fusion-inventory engine tracks all drives + serial numbers plugged into computers....

It even pulls manufacturers data..

As does "bit defender" cloud.... these are hardly "expensive" products....

once you have this info, it's just a simple action of cross-referencing what files were downloaded to the machine during that time.

you have gone from tens of thousands of employees to a single employee.... in two steps.

I worry when a top level rag is impressed by even the most rudimentary low level Software products...., what's next?

Firefox 85 crumbles cache-abusing supercookies with potent partitioning powers


The image tagging has been in use since about 2008,

Why have they only decided to do something about it now?

Facebook was the biggest user of the tech... via their off site links back to face book.

each website has a link which serves a tagged image from FB to the users browser.

Singapore changes the rules and will now use COVID-19 contact-tracing app data in criminal cases


Singapore is basically a dictatorship

no... they announced a "let's talk ourselves to death" session


"There is no ETA for a release. "


it's things like this that will kill Linux

Boffins from China push quantum computing envelope for 'supremacy' in emerging photon field


That is a fantasy.....

Since it was NOT a unified country but a group of countries that were brought together....

Not to mention that if it is so ahead of its time.. why does it still not have decent roads or a decent sewerage system?

Even the Romans managed that in a much shorter time......

So stop drinking the communist cool aid and start thinking for yourself....

CodeWeavers' CrossOver ran 32-bit Windows Intel binary on macOS on Arm CPU emulating x86 – and nobody died


Just "jumping on the band wagon"

There are a MULTITUDE of programs that wont run under whine in the best case

many of those that do have maybe 70-90 % functionality.

Devs strung up about .NET 5.0 string changes that may break working code are told: It's not a bug, it's a feature


Re: To be fair to everyone else

MS going WOKE......

The strings have aright to be acknowledged as having differences defined by themselves......


MS doing exactly what MS does.......

Destroy existing systems & user productivity...... because.....

Microsoft to rethink crash-prone Visual Studio extension model, shift towards cloud


MS can barely keep their own 365 shit under control in the cloud....

now they want to force IDE based development into the cloud?

If you want to practice writing exploits and worms, there's a big hijacking hole in SonicWall firewall VPNs


Yep... well..

I can go one better than all this.....

I had been warning sonicwall for months that there was something "going on" with their firewalls, i had seen a " leveraged" attack against the back end to extract the config files via an embedded URL....

Even had it in the admin log, it stated failed.. but then again it does not show it as successful in the log if it works... had an ticket filed

Their attitude was piss poor even dismissive, then a couple of days after that, there was an attack that completely reset & cleared the firewalls, logs and all

again ... dismissive becasue they wanted logs to prove it.

at one point I had over 28,000 ip addresses from Russian "military" bases targeting our kit.

And so here we are...

Oh... and the "work from home " SSL VPN" was NOT enabled...

Apple's T2 custom secure boot chip is not only insecure, it cannot be fixed without replacing the silicon


This aint the first time Apple dropped the ball, they think they are experts in every field.

US ponders tech export ban on SMIC, China's biggest chipmaker

Mainly for the mass market chip supply lines.

There can be only one: Visual Studio Codespaces 'consolidating' into GitHub Codespaces


Yep... becasue everyone is a "programmer"


MS wasting hundreds of thousands of other peoples productive man hours yet again

Wrap it before you tap it? No, say Linux developers: 'GPL condom' for Nvidia driver is laughed out of the kernel


Yes there is...

the contents of the driver give away tech to competitors and other countries.

That said, there are bigger threats to the Kernel & Linux, al lteh back room dealings wher MS and other scumbag companies are slowly inserting themselves into the boards that work on linux development.

MS just figured it can set the agenda and get it's development for free.

Huawei mobile mast installed next to secret MI5 data centre in London has 7 years to do whatever it is Huawei does


Who writes this crap?

MI5 tapping into a phone mast?

That's like plugging into a local locked and VLANED switch, when you have the option to connect directly to the orgs external data connections.

Relying on plain-text email is a 'barrier to entry' for kernel development, says Linux Foundation board member


TEAMS might be fine in the US... but it is having MASSIVE problems in other areas of the world.....

Breaching China's Great Firewall is hard. Pushing packets faster than 1Mbps once through is the Boss Fight


It is simple......

The carriers get paid a FIXED amount for adsl and other such bullshit, but for mobile they get to charge for the data...

That's why you see 40Gb fiber to their mast head controllers, but are lucky if you can get a 100mb line fitted into the factory below the mast equipment...

Then you have the situation where mobile data is packet switched between ultra modern infrastructure, where as house hold & factory kit is usually plugged into half assed rack equipment at the ISP...

Also he is incorrect in this statment:

“all packet types share the same packet loss — TCP, UDP and ICMP don’t have noticeable differences."

this is completely incorrect.. and can be proved by changing the packet size...,

There are "fixes" to ensure the network looks faster than it is...

China requires gamers to reveal real names and map them to frag-tastic IDs


This is NOT new........it has been in place for YEARS.

you will see this when you see a game like "RUST" where the players have numbers for names
