Ever wonder how hackers could possibly pwn power plants? Here are 54 Siemens bugs that could explain things
Security gone in 600 seconds: Make-me-admin hole found in Lenovo Windows laptop crapware. Delete it now
Your mates vape. Your boss quit smoking. You promised to quit in 2019. But how will Big Tobacco give it up?
Mark Zuckerberg did everything in his power to avoid Facebook becoming the next MySpace – but forgot one crucial detail…
Not sure it makes any difference how you try to turn it off, I have noticed items I've turned off are back on again after an update.
So you would have to redo everything you've turned off.
Even if you set up a reg file to make it easier, my thoughts are that after an update they may be labelled differently or placed in a different area.
It's strange what we put up with.
Re: Government-supplied phones, then?
Anyone in the USA that wants a phone can get one, they have programs for this.
Yes, if such a law passed then hiding your phone from the network would become illegal as well.
The truth is people today can't live without their phones, and with payments apps, people are buying with phones.
You won't really need a law to make carrying a phone mandatory, if you simply can't get anything done in life without one.

Apple's magical quality engineering strikes again: You may want to hold off that macOS High Sierra update...

Not so sure about video games, but violent TV, movies and the constant coverage by the news media definitely gives some of the weaker minds out there ideas.
Humans are an imitative species, we are very good at it, and I feel the excessive media influences copycatting.
If it bleeds it leads... indeed.
Re: Yes, that's what a Spectre attack is
Interesting, so this has been a known vulnerability for some time. I suspect that's all anyone needs to start a class action lawsuit, and following that when the stock drops, invest in Intel for the subsequent rise in value once they address the hardware issues.
