World recoils in horror as smartphone maker accused of helping government snoops read encrypted texts, track device whereabouts
It's official! The Register is fake news… according to .uk overlord Nominet. Just a few problems with that claim, though
The completely rational take you need on Europe approving Article 13: An ill-defined copyright regime to tame US tech

Another way to look at Amazon's counterfeit-busting Project Zero: Making merchants cough up protection money
Re: Buyer Beware
and ad to this that merchants can sell shite (such as fake plant seeds, ex. offering bromeliad seeds that sprout as common Chinese herbs or even weeds) or re-sell legitimate products but overprice them by 300% or more and people still buy them because they don't know how Amazon merchants can game the system

"God Help Us All if Hillary is elected. A two-front war with China and Russia using stealthed first-strike tac nukes in a "nuclear ramp-up" scenario? Yes, she can!"
Here's your sign!
And your tin foil hat.
The downside of freedom of speech right there.
But ... but ... but ...
We keep getting told by the nanny state that there is no problem with people buying a thousand tickets to a single event and reselling them!
And yes, I get it that this was illegally buying them, but unless they had some kind of distributed network, most or all of the purchases would be coming from the same IP or range of IP addresses. Which also should have kicked off some kind of alarm by the credit card companies and/or PayPal.
As bas as
the raving apple fans are, the spitting anti-ms ones are as well
there is a middle ground
and if you don't like it that much then fill it out with fake information (like opus did in bloom county surveys) to reduce the effectiveness and accuracy

Re: Gone now. (never there)
never, ever, no, no, no to any social media ever
plus having protected my systems, accounts, e-mail addresses for over 20 years i get less than one spam e-mail per month
and i never have to worry about my information being sold, or 'targeted marketing' (unless i do something like opus answering a phone survey and direct it to a c(e,i,f,etc.)o of some corporation i don't like (or even better their personal e-mail address
Re: Yeah, this is crazy but....
do 99% of users even know the slightest about what this means? i doubt it.
that was supposed to be the how point of 'trusted issuers', that you did not need to worry as they were supposed to be 'trusted' to a) do the background checks to make sure the person who asked for a cert was really the person who 'owned' the site (failed that years ago) and b) would not (be able to) use that certificate on their own to compromise a users or businesses communications (now failed)
talk ab out the fox guarding the hen house, and in this case it is two foxes already proven to be perilously close to the ethical and legal line
time to start removing their certs from the trusted issuers on my personal systems
Telus especially provides truly appalling service and spends most of their time coming up with excuses why not to or why they can't do things.
Every single FTTH install (at least in multi-unit and older residential installs) that I have seen has only a single ONT and then goes to the Telus router/modem which can not be set to pass-through.
Further, I have never heard of a multi-unit dwelling OR commercial building refusing access to a service provider that could guarantee bonding and/or licensing.

When adjusted for taking maternity leave (and child raising time beyond that) and looking at like for like comparison (no comparing male engineers to females nurses) male-female earnings are not that far apart.
