Ad network ransomware crook to flog £5k Rolex after court confiscates £270k in ill-gotten gains


"Qaiser spent the proceeds of his criminality on stays in high-end hotels, prostitutes, gambling, drugs and luxury items including a £5,000 Rolex watch," - The rest he just wasted.

London has decent 5G availability but speeds lag behind Birmingham and Cardiff – research

Cool story bro

UK defines Cyber DEFCON 1, 2 and 3, though of course doesn't call it that



No because in UK defence Defcon more prosaically means defence contract - I'm ex MOD.

Brit Lords start peer-to-peer wrangling over regulating the internet



Good luck with all that.

Autonomous vehicle claims are just a load of hot air… and here's why


Tea anyone? In France not likely.

As an Englishman living in France I can confirm Alistair's assessment of French tea making prowess is accurate, however he didn't mention you can only get UHT milk so tea will always taste akin to mild vomit despite the tea makers best efforts.

One-way Martian ticket: Pick passengers for Musk's first Mars pioneer squad



I'm also very surprised Kim Jong Un hasn't signed up to measure up for another penal colony, although there is probably more fun things to do on Mars than in North Korea and better internet.



DT in the lead! I can scarcely believe it! I expect he would try to the place anyway, if he hasn't done so already.

SpaceX adds Mars haulage to its price list


13ish tonnes, should just about do it,

OK at first glance it's an expensive way to get rid of Kim Kardashian and her enormous backside, but 90m US squids well really it's a veritable bargain!

More gums than Jaws: Greenland super-sharks live past 400 years old


Typical specimen is older than America

Who cares about the age of the USA, this story is astonishing. If only certain humans had to wait 150 years to have a kid, might have gained a bit of sense by then!

Is Windows RT not invited to the Windows 10 upgrade party?


WIndows RT is a total joke and complete waste of time. It was obvious from the start it was doomed.

When algorithms ATTACK: Facebook sez soz for tacky 'Year in Review' FAIL


Thanks for the memories

I'm glad I'm no the only one who got annoyed about this. My year started OK, but rapidly went down hill.

Its been a fucking shit year so I will not inflict it on you by pretending it has been by way of some sickly automated facebook generated bullshit.

What's MISSING on Amazon Fire Phone... and why it WON'T set the world alight


If it was 2011, then maybe

but its nearly 2015 and you can buy a brand spanking new LG G3 unlocked from eBay for £335 and that's for the 32/3gb model. You'd have to be an ultra tard to buy this dog for £400. It needs to be about the £100 - £150 mark. Or just buy a Fire HDX and tether it to an old Smartphone for £100. It's like Blackadder's broken pencil, pointless.
