Of course denial can be outsourced, they’re called PR companies and are only too happy to twist reality for the right fee

Is anyone here NOT surprised that some council thicko(s) thought this thing was the real deal?
I am disgusted that these morons think they govern me. These low IQ cunts need to go, it’s fucking embarrassing, how the fuck did they manage to wrangle their way into local government, in any capacity, or is this the level of retardedness we can expect from these brainlets?

Strikes again, another blunder from the blunder warriors
Honestly, if we tolerated this level fucktardery in the physical world, buildings would be crashing onto pedestrians heads every minute of every day
If you don't know how to build a solid structure, fucking don’t, if you need to constantly patch (sticky plaster) your structure made from soft stodgy shit, then clearly you’ve not fucking thought this through, a bit like your mother all those years back!!!
And there we have it, the word ‘smart’ finally revealing its true meaning in a phone, and unsurprisingly its Orwellian
I guess I wont be updating my phone then and it is actually going to be abandoned.
I don't really care what any of you muppets think about this covid19 thing, but my third eye is buzzing like a mofo
Wasn’t it IBM who created something historically to help catalogue mass murder?
“The documentary series Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister covers UK governmental decision making remarkably accurately”
I once heard someone describe the discourse that happens in Parliament as a “country run by mad banter”
Basically there are a lot of fucktards in the world and somehow they’ve managed to worm their way into government and they’re calling the shots, truly fucking terrifying, I dont want to single any of them out, but I mean, just look at Gove, wtf, how does this happen?
This is what happens when billions of people just do whatever the fuck they want in a disconcerted and disorganised fashion, mostly capitalists and industrialists. We potentially get a completely avoidable situation where we could end up completely hindering our ability to launch into orbit. The space race hasn’t actually happened yet, but I can assure you, once this planet is close to exhaustion we will need to find somewhere else, that little hot potato isn't going anywhere soon
When they decided that a cloud configurable router was something customers wanted
I wonder what data they can get their grubby hands on in this environment carte blanche
Either that, or another route to planned obsolescence, after all, a service needs to be active for this to be viable, I hope its not a requirement
Capitalism is a weird cookie, on the one hand it wants to farm people and turn them into little profit machines, but then on the other hand it wants to be protected by communisitic & socialist ideals, both of which capitalism has stated very often how opposed to it it is.
I suppose cherry picking is a form of capitalism
How resilient is our socioeconomic system?
Is it safe to describe the monetary system as conceptual?
Can the World pause itself for potentially 3 months?
Is this a good opportunity to rethink & reengineer our civilisation?
If the world does react to this coronavirus, and it seems to be doing so, does this show that we have the ability to change our collective behaviours?
One thing is certain in my mind, and that is we cant go on like we have been, trashing the planet and being unkind to eachother
The flushable loo has been thing since sometime around the 1700’s, I would not describe this wonderful invention as ubiquitous in the world.... yes people do still shit into a pit
The same can be said for a lot of things, their usefulness but lack of ubiquity.
Whats the hold up?
I think parallels can be draw here
The Institute of statecraft was listed as a charity, not sure if it is anymore, I'm bored of that particular research
"Tea is a good source of fluoride for winding up the anti-fluoride crowd."
Industralists are clapping their hands, thanking people like you
You've saved them Trillion$ in responsible disposure costs
You sir, are a filter, well done
Oh and by the way, cigarettes are healthy, the PR company said so /Sarcasm
I thought IT people were inquisitive, I know I am
Pulse Secure probably has a terms of service license agreement which basically says, "fuck you, we're not responsible" and lusers agreed to this
A quick browse of their website does through up a sense of irony
This is their strapline
"Zero Trust Access made Easy, Comprehensive, Flexible"
There is a better option, don't create buggy shitty code that you have no idea what it's doing in the first place, too few 'what ifs' are asked in these situations, testing is lacking
Yes programming is hard and complex, but so is brain surgery, yet the harm that can be done by a programmer probably surpasses anything a brain surgeon might achieve through negligence
Unfortunately, in the internet age, sneezing at the screen and declaring it a working program, and then releasing it for public consumption, is all too common
We only have to look at the huge number of patches M$ releases, and even then they never get it right and end up creating yet more bugs, they should just give up and do the world a favour, SAAS is simply one giant rolling turd, attempting to collect some glitter along its journey
The whole development cycle is one giant clusterfuck
I kid you not, I received no less than 3 updates in the space of 1 week, for Outlook on iOS, and it still shits the bed daily
So, we can send people to the moon, build electric autonomous vehicles, create anti-biotics, do advanced surgery, build ever increasingly terrifying weapons, sometime ago we even somehow managed to figure out how to create fire when we were still smashing rocks together
Yet, we are incapable of putting out a fire in Australia
Humans aren't just amazing, we're brilliant, we are legends in our own teabreak!
I agree with Halfmad, the ICO are clearly out of their depth and most of what we get from them is window dressing. I doubt the ICO discovered this themselves independently, most likely is a good natured person took some time out of their day and reported it to them.
I can only go by what I observe, and all I observe with them is ineptitude and their clueless approach to the problem
" there has never been any windows in this business (all linux systems, right down to the EPOS)"
Well that won't last long once the business grows, and all the new muppets will then need Microsoft, because they won't know how to use anything else, and even that (Microsoft) they don't know how to use, and always end up needing the IT support to come and show them how to use a computer, which by the way is the main tool used in their job
I can only hope that as generations go by, this idiocy will fade away
"AWS (as the cloud host) have done nothing wrong here… Look up their “shared responsibility model"
I have to disagree, the words 'Amazon' and 'Responsibility' placed into the same sentence is an oxymoron. Has anyone ever thought how much computer crime is committed through AWS servers?
These are paying customers of course and that's as far as Amazons responsibility goes, taking their money and not asking questions or probing what their infrastructure is doing. The same goes with Cloudflare. These people think they can solve every problem with an algorithm while ignoring the harm their lack of responsibilty brings
Wow what an unsurprising story, which essentiall equates to something similar to this:
"Sociopath(s) worms their way into upper echelon of some organisation, pretends they know what they're doing, then when the shit hits the fan, scurry away with as much treasure as possible stuffed into their pockets"
Sounds familiar, this is something that is played out all to often these days
