Apple races to patch the latest zero-day iPhone exploit

improved logic

So, just logic then

The code is either logical and acting as intended, or it is illogical and not acting as intended.

There is no middle ground with logic.

Now thats a “profession” that could disappear and nobody would really notice.

Re: re: ""This computer is broken"

Rookie mistake

You’re meant to install windows 10 with no internet available, when Microshit asks you to connect to internet, tell it you have no internet, it will ask you again and this should be the red flag, if Microshit are ignoring your inputted information and pestering you for the answer THEY want, then it’s probably not in YOUR best interest.

With no internet, windows 10 can’t demand you log in to or set up a windows account.

Local accounts are perfectly fine

Twitter sues Brit non-profit, claims hate-speech reports scared off advertisers

Re: Arrogant Muskrat

No, he is saying you are fascist, the left

Disagreeing with someone is not hate speech

Having an opinion is not hate speech

Hate speech is, attacking someone for their appearance, sexuality, allegiance, membership, opposing views, etc

Instead of telling someone they cannot say a) b) or c), try instead and ask with the aim of understanding why someone said something you disagreed with

You’re welcome

White House: Losing Section 702 spy powers would be among 'worst intelligence failures of our time'

Worst intelligence failures…

To be a failure at intelligence, you first need to have at least some. This is an industry that spends a lot of its time making shit up.

Re: Good effort, must try harder

While some people thought the space race was about exploration with the aim of improving our survivability.

The reality it is solely a military endeavour and these morons are more interested in taking out each others satellites.

Some say adulthood is a myth, and I have to wholeheartedly agree. A lot of humans, especially those in the “leadership” roles, never grew past the school playground

FlamingDeath Silver badge

Good effort, must try harder

32B KM is 1.23 light days away

We seriously need to up our game if we are ever to actually start the space race and reach other star systems, this solar system is pretty dull in terms of diverse habitability.

There is no space race currently in my view.

Saying there is a space race is like saying you’re a professional swimmer but you haven’t made it out of the infant pool and you still need arm bands

This is embarrassing

Re: But surely, technology is the most dangerous thing ever.

GB news is legacy media too, and while I might have diverse sources of information, I do not subscribe to every word that utters out of peoples mouths. I engage the brain, assess what is presented and make my own mind up.

I feel like your response comes from someone who is hurt, was it me that hurt you, did I challenge your world view?

If so, good

No money for education

Gee wizz, a country that fails to invest in the future by providing education to it’s young population, then wonders why they can’t have fancy shiny chip fabrication plants.

Maybe more lessons and less indoctrination, maybe?

FlamingDeath Silver badge

Re: But surely, technology is the most dangerous thing ever.

I thought the legacy media label was a well understood term.

Allow me to clarify

if they’re on the TV and have regular bulletins, broadcast at certain schedules every day without fail, and all wear business attire and read from an autocue.

That’s the legacy media

They’re easy to spot because they’re alway lying

FlamingDeath Silver badge

Re: But surely, technology is the most dangerous thing ever.

Stop reading / watching legacy media

Problem solved

You do know their target audience are idiots that have about as much discernment ability as the dirt under your feet.

This might surprise you, their aim is not to inform you

Their aim is to influence you

It always has been, and always will be, their sole aim

Re: Real Political School

I wouldn’t pay too much attention to the background radiation of internet discourse allegedly made by a single human

Oh noes a comment has lots of up/down votes, what does it mean?? It means absolutely fuck all, it just means maybe some people clicked a button or maybe some software did it, we will never know.

VirusTotal: We're sorry someone fat-fingered and exposed 5,600 users

FlamingDeath Silver badge

Re: False sense of security

Anti virus engines have 2 modes of operation traditionally.

Signature matches


The latter can generate false positives.

I’ve had malware infested files given the clean bill of health by virustotal only to scan that same binary 10 years later and it has a trojan, an actual signature match so not a false positive.

The reality is, ask yourself this, what exactly IS malware

Clue, it’s malicious software

So basically all modern software is malware because it rarely acts in the end users interest.

Windows 10 is malware

Windows defender is great at finding keygens, but not so good at detecting actual malware
