A black kid from the council estates, that showed a screw you to all his peers from privileged and connected backgrounds. I think he deserves to act like a knob sometimes and own a pad in Monaco.

No, it implies that Android Wear only worked with Android phones, which to iPhone users used to Apple lockdown was a reasonable assumption. The new name tells you the Google wear OS doesn't care what phone you have (although you get better functionality of paired to an Android phone, mainly due to Apple restrictions bon what Google can do with its Apple companion app)
That infection graph seems to have at least 10 steps missing from what I can count. It's also weird all 10 are barriers that would prevent you getting this..
Also wondering how this breaks posting rules, unless its now forbidden to point out glaring errors that make stories appear ridiculous..
I changed only the case of that last word. If you think apple aren't harvesting and selling your anonymous data, the same as Google do, you are a fool and Apple truly deserves you.
The more people you tell, the more chance it leaks early before any countermeasures are ready.
Google and Intel did EXACTLY the right thing, informed a small set of trustworthy companies that could help is addressing the technical issues, and avoiding red tape government who only involvement will be "is it ready yet" and "who is to blame"...
Not a gimmick and vastly more secure than that debit/credit card in your wallet.
Google Pay (Android Pay) uses a generated 1 time card number that is matched to your real card details by the payment processing company (Visa/Mastercard) and then discarded.
If I lose my phone, I can remote wipe it, Can I do this same thing when I discover my credit/debit card missing? Your plastic card is however ripe for skimming.
It's therefore no surprise that banks limit card tap and pay transactions to £30, but don't impose that limit for GooglePlay tap and pay transactions (as long as you have some form of password/pin/fingerprint lock screen)... Go figure...
Good luck Luddite. I wish you all the best,. Don't forget the tinfoil hat.
Microsoft browsers have been running dodgy code for years... ActiveX anyone???
Who even uses Edge browser anyway? Their whole userbase seems to be build around tricking people into using it, or creating fake rules that say to use feature X you must use Edge/bing to pump their stats...
"Ultimately, this has put us in a position where most apps rely on adverts to generate any kind of return."
No, it means you have to try harder. Whilst you can sell any old shite on Apple's marketplace and braindead plebs will buy it, as 99p is nothing to someone thank has spunked a grand on a phone. Android will have free alternatives to your tat. The free version might ever be better than your tat.
It's not that users aren't willing, it's that opensource OS has lots of opensource apps, and a generally free culture, and your tat isn't worth paying for not unless you put some real effort in.
Of course not. Here is what you actually need to do;
*Enable untrusted sources in phone settings
*Ignore warning about the malware risks involved with untrusted sources
*Turn off play protect scanning
*Visit obscure website hosting this.
*Be using a mobile device
*Open the APK it downloads
* Ignore the permissions it lists on the install screen, including record microphone permissions
* install app
*Grant special accessibility permission
Its also worth mentioning, unlike Windows, android is fully sandboxed, so even if you did all these things, you simply have to uninstall the app to get rid of it fully, it won't leave stuff on your device.
Funny that Kaspersky and checkpoint always "forget" to mention these huge mitigation factors...
Didn't clarify more important stuff rather than lawyer nonsense.
Like perhaps how this is distributed
how many defences you have to disable to get it
How many permissions you have to grant it.
Kaspersky really are clickbait scumbags. Why anyone would trust their network security with them when they can't even be trusted to providing accurate malware information with resorting to sexing everything up?
Unterschleißheim is a town in Bavaria, Germany. It is located about 17 km north of the city limits of Munich.
City limits being the operative word here... how much money will flow between Microsoft and the city of Munich, when it's located outside of the city??? "Near" doesn't cut it.
Stop trying and unspin this obviously related move.....
My £170 purchase of Nest smart thermostat 3 years ago has already paid for itself. During the winter months, I saw a £12 a month saving on heating bills, AND the house felt warmer. My previous thermostat wasn't set wrong, it was just very dumb, not taking into account outside temp, weather forecasts, time to heat up the house, cool-down times, and when people are likely to be around.
Don't be an idiot that falls into the trap thinking everything IoT is crap, it's not. There are real savings to be had. You have just shown the world that you really shouldn't be working in the technology sector with your closed minded black and white attitude. May I suggest a career at McDonalds, they are always on the lookout for people like yourself.
If you think that because you paid a £300 premium on your phone to not get profiled, then you are above and beyond your usual run of the mill apple idiot.
I guess nobody also told you, Android device setup allows you to entirely opt out of google services, iPhone you have no choice, you are always apples bitch.
"While Apple can update half of its user base to the newest code within two months, "
Google can update pretty much all it's userbase to the new code within a few days of release...
Android is not a phone manufacturer, it's an operating system and clearly plenty of people get really confused by this. How hard is this to understand?
Do you also walk into a car dealerships to buy a new set of tyres?
The point is, you pay your money and take your choice.
if running the latest and greatest Android is important to you, you shop appropriately. If you want something that you throw in the bin every 18 months and buy new, shop appropriately.
Don't be a cretin and confuse the two.
I'm not entirely sure how they can claim avoidance, when they clearly didn't want anyone to find out what they were up-to.
"What Information Is Publicly Visible?"
“Is it possible to obtain an official assurance of tax exemption?”
Let's see if IphoneX gets the same press crucifixion for its screen burn and colour shift..
WE ALL KNOW THE ANSWER, IT WILL GET A FREE PASS, as the viral spin that created the pixel2XL story originated from Cupertino via a bought blogger....
It was no coincidence it happened when it did, to deter and Apple defectors
when every website you ever visit always asks you every time (because you say no), it becomes tiresome, so everyone just says yes to consent just to make the nag go away.
So what exactly this this achieve? It just made everyone give their consent, as the mechanism that was being used to store their preference was also the mechanism they were granting permission to.
"No, you don't. Where are private paid options?"
Do you know how to use the internet?
"Transparency is part of Google's DNA. We work hard to earn and maintain trust with our customers through transparency. The customer – not Google – owns their data. Google does not sell your data to third parties, there is no advertising in G Suite and we never collect or use data from G Suite services for any advertising purposes."
Essentially, you have the choice, pay for GSuite if you genuinely don't want Google using your data for anonymous data purposes, or use the free services as much as you you like (of which when you add them up, add considerable value, Mail, Calendar, Office, Maps, Photos and so on...)
