Actually - The Sean Connery (meherestinpeace) Dr No hat throw length should be the standard, methinks. And we can say there are Three 00s to one Oddjob. Simple.

But this is still a point, is it not? This is a genuine question.
So PII is still PII whether that is on a specific website, or in Google's search results. That is the point I was wondering about.
It isn't about data escaping, it is about data, period. If that data sat originally on a badly secured website, or a dump of data somewhere, PII is PII regardless. GDPR won't make that distinction and whatever my personal views are, I wondered why GDPR wouldn't apply because as far as I am aware, Googles does *not* gets any special dispensation relating to that regulation.
So if the search result includes personally identifiable information, which I kind of assume it does because why want it blocked in the first place, and GDPR states that any information held on EU citizen should be subject to the regulation even if outside of the EU - isn't this a contradiction?
Being brutally honest, I haven't read the judgement and I can't be arsed, so it may have covered that because I am pretty sure the relevant powers that be would have picked up on that. But still, enquiring minds....
And earlier in that quote...
'IOActive chose to ignore our verified results and limitations in its research'
Funny Boeing saying that. Seems they did, too, in order to self certify* their own systems.
*Which is what the FAA apparently was accused of letting them do.
So business start with an idea. Marketing helps them sell that idea. Business does well.
So, everyone gets more money. Marketing falls into the demographic and demand issue, seeing other similar models working, so say 'You need to design it like this so we can take a part of this demographic who want to buy it because see: Evidence' (Just look at laptop design in the last 15 years. Thanks apple. )
So business tells talented Engineers to do it this way. Engineers grumble because they are see the limitations of what is wanted and have to make nonsensical tradeoffs to provide what the busines are saying what people want.
Meanwhile, lots of people are decrying the new products as missing X and Y and why can't we have a longer batter life and they are ignored because no one is buying those things because see: Evidence from marketing. Only the .5mm thick battery ones are selling.
And we all cry: BECAUSE NO FUCKER IS MAKING THEM!
So...if you are a Product Owner, get evidence from everyone EXCEPT marketing.
"A Cabinet Office spokesperson told The Reg: "Verify is a world-leading example of how to enable people to use services securely online. This has been a challenging project - but challenges like these are to be expected when the government is working at the forefront of new technology.
"Verify is now at a point where it can be taken forward by the private sector, so people will be able to safely and securely access both private and public online services.""
Whoever said that surely has a special place in hell reserved for them?
*Spin meter blowing its top.
We all know what is happening here.
It is the shareholders that are the focus of this, and pretty much any other large floated setup. This is why clients suffer, the organisations are filled with unhappy and kicked around peoeple. The language used by the politici^w board and CEO are the usual bundle of empty promises and useless BS that we all know. Like politicians in power, most of the time CEOs change after a few years to keep offering hope that 'Things are gonna change!'™ but they don't.
Because ultimatly this beast we are feeding gets hungrier and hungrier, so those that are closest to the Maw and feeding it bigger and bigger helpings in the hope they don't get swallowed.
Jeez, this is dark for a Tuesday.
TLDR; Fsck You, DXC, and those of your kind.
I'm not a google fan. I think they are no different to any big company in that when they get to a certain size, they only see reflected ideals, not those form outside their ecosystem. I don't trust them.
That being said, I am actually excited about this project. I have long held a belief that we need a new OS philosophy. Linux, whereas my favourite, I think is not moving in a direction I care for and I think that where will it be in 10 years, yet alone 20. BeOS I wanted to see flourish.
Regardless of any motives, I think that there are a *lot* of bright people in Google who really care for the same things in a new OS and that regardless of the business as a whole, will have the heft and resources to push a new OS out into more mainstream.
So I am looking forward to it.
However, that was around a dying star. This article states interstellar so the stuff in between systems, so .... space*. So I guess this is what they mean and it goes to show that clickbait is rife in EVERY field. :)
*Space is weird. And big. Bigger than big.
We had a couple of 380Zs in school in the 80s that became surplus to requirements. One of them ended up being scrapped and given to me - it also had the graphics adapter so graphics were possible.
I should add that the first Computer lesson I had in 84, we were told to open our books to the middle, draw out a Qwerty keyboard and then told how to type on our pages.
