It's not often that a side effect of seemingly providing the end user with enhanced personal security also effectually reduces the ability to police the users of such an anti-social media platform. Win-win kerching, assuming they can maintain a happy relationship with the advertisers. One more point, I might be missing something, but for an anti-social media platform like FB which operates by connecting people that know each other... how does E2EE and the ability to conceal identity/geographic origin enhance the anti-social media platform experience??? I must be missing something (I have a hunch this is about getting former FBers back... the ones that fled to Parler perhaps).
It's kind of unusual seeing two greedy Goliath's lose the fight simultaneously. Very rare indeed. There should be a sense of satisfaction right now, that all is well in the big wide world, but the ominous feeling that everyone is going to be shafted harder and longer just won't go away.
Epic seems to be enjoying the process of washing everyone's dirty laundry in publlic, and I must say this latest one is hardly surprising since bits of the Play store seem to be dropping off for no apparent reason, other than a lack of interest from the paying public. Apple holds developers to ransom, Google bribes developers to stay loyal.... I wonder what mischief Epic have been getting themselves into, I sincerely doubt they are entirely innocent in all of this. Mud slinging generally leaves everyone splattered, wryly noting that `He who slings mud generally loses ground`
Not even slightly predictable, moving emails and data to cloud based 3rd parties was sure to attract some unwanted attention. Hosting locally complicates matters for law enforcement, but the big question remains: what is the general nature of the justifications for these subpoena's, I'd be interested to know.
'Department of Science Technology and Army' !!?? I think that pretty much sums it up. When you combine government science and technology departments with the military, that sends a loud and clear message. Strong arm, wannabe tyrants are all the rage these days. Closing down news and media is basic training at despot school.
Is it no wonder the Linux kernel is ballooning exponentially, how many millions of lines of code have been added for the next release... Friday goal based KPI commits must be the explanation. Now where was that web site to download Open Euler OS, it'll be a cert for quality patches.
Am I the only one humming burning spears slavery days while reading this article, there appear to be no downsides for Jeff... Perhaps a lucky few get to join him for a ride to the edge of space. Hours stuck in a tin can, with only Jeff Bezos for company, I'd rather spend a day at Mar-a-lardo being Orange Twitlers caddy.
I drove my tractor through your haystack last night (ooh aah ooh aah)
I threw me pitchfork at your dog to keep quiet (ooh aah ooh aah)
Now something's telling me
That you'm avoiding me
Come on now darling you've got something I need
Cuz I got a brand M$ 'operating system'
An' I'll give you the key
Another poop storm brewing, the bit where we Brit's aren't even allowed to know WTF has been going on is truly reassuring. I suppose there's a slim chance that Alexander of Uxbridge and South Ruislip will find his mucky web habits posted on Wikileaks imminently, or probably more interesting to know... what the hell our government and security services are up to. Is there a runner up prize for predicting the usual suspects will maintain that software and hardware back doors are essential for maintaining national security, like giving all our secrets away to Russian state backed hackers
I wouldn't object, thus use a blocker, if the ads were quiet and well behaved. Sadly many are not, and if you choose to spend your adult relaxation time on pron or gambling sites then you will likely find that your browser cookie jar becomes pretty nasty in short order. How about Google develops a code of practice (otherwise known as a CoP) that all sides sign onto... No nasty screen hogging, pop up popping, flashing, animated, video downloading hi-jinx in return for fair play from Google users? Too much to ask for I suspect
I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over. I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission. And I want to help you.
Without standing on top of a very tall mountain shouting admire my ignorance, but don't CISCO make network gear? More specifically why would their products' embedded OS have ALSA installed?

Of course CVE's don't mean much on their own
'What the fuck has this got to do with Brexit?' :
In all honesty probably not a great deal.
Oh the irony, jobs in brexit central heavily dependent on contracts to build the <u>eurofighter</u> typhoon, it'll be more brexit related when Nissan make their announcement. That said, it is no laughing matter, 1000 jobs directly plus probably many more indirectly from service sector, and external contractors.
Indeed, I've been through the 'process' with a loved one who was granted full benefits upon appeal. That indeed seems to be the entire point of this costly and pointless process. Possibly(robably) some accept the outcome of their ATOS decision, and never appeal. The scummy politicians think this charade is perfectly acceptable.
Before ATOS existed the claimant GP's word, and opinion was accepted.
Not so now
I've used K for a windows box, primarily because of its' good independent test reports and the involvement of K in many international IT security efforts. Should I seek to switch? If so, can anyone recommend a good non-Russian cum non-American (obviously) alternative for work laptop?
PS I don't store any sensitive government, military, or politcial information.
