"That would mean someone else provided the makers of these video encoder devices application software riddled with holes, and this code was shipped with the equipment. The products just all happen to use the the hi3520d chipset."
All software runs on something. Are we now implying that Intel or AMD is to blame for bad software running on their hardware?
If it was done intentionally by a massive manufacturer, it was extremely poorly done. I bet it wasn't.
"Why use letters at all? As far as I know, anyone else outside UK only uses letters as a prefix to identify a region."
In Sweden the format is "ABC 123".
I don't know if there's a system to it or not. But they remove obvious naughty words (in Swedish).
The reason for using letters is to get a much larger allocation space. The reason to mix letters and number is probably to make it easier to remember, or something to do with legacy stuff.
You used to be able to see from the reg no where the car was registered, but they dropped that when they introduced the "ABC 123" format.
"Two-plus years of edits are just gone, lost, unrecoverable," sighed one user. "I do photography as a hobby so I never saw a need for backing up photos and I never paid for the subscription (which would include cloud storage) because I didn’t use any of the tools that came along with the subscription."
So this person never realised the phone could just break?
"I thought a big selling point of the Apple walled garden was that it is locked dowm & apps are prevented from doing naughty stuff without user OK?"
It is, and I can see Apple closing this loophole permanently, very soon.
It seems like initiating the paste functionality will have to move completely out of any app's responsibility in the future.
I have Sygic on my phone, which is an Android (now ancient LG G3).
I've had Sygic since it had another name (which I can't even recall now), and initially purchased it for use on an iPhone 4.
When I switched to an Android phone (cheaper, larger screen) Sygic gave me a way to swap to the Android version for free, giving up the iPhone version (it may possibly still work on the iPhone). Pretty good customer service! It's been on a string of 3 or 4 Android phones so far.
They tried to up-sell me to live traffic, but I don't really need that. I have all of Europe, with unlimited updates. Bought very cheaply during some offer.
TomTom might be sleeker, but I'm quite happy with the economics of Sygic on a mobile phone. I'm in no way associated with Sygic (or whatever the company actually is called).
"The main beneficiary of the .eu registry business? The European Union itself."
Money isn't everything. A difficult concept for UK, I know.
The whole concept of making sheadloads of money from internet domain names is wrong from the very start. Basically the registrars themselves are massive cyber-squatters that have take over something that isn't theirs in the first place.
"This is why you need to search for streamlined recent ISOs of Win7 (which MS never did) and the most certain way to find them is in the dark alleys of the net (just use your own legal serial number)."
MS has forced people to do this kind of thing, which is like saying "take your chances with whatever you can find out there -we don't care what infections you might get".
"workplace safety" is the main concern, for sure. Not customer safety.
Personally I think both Airbus and Boeing should have pilot overridable anti-stall systems. (And in Boeing's case, non-automatic massive trim adjustment.)
The novelty of actually flying an aircraft not relying on faulty AOT sensors and other sh*t...
