Open-source dev and critic of Beijing claims Audacity owner Muse threatened him with deportation to China in row over copyright


This was a clear and unambiguous threat to his life

This was a clear and unambiguous threat to his life, what’s not to understand? There’s no other way to read it, have doubts? Do what i did, ask other people around what they think it was.

If you have to explain why it isn’t a threat then you have your answer

Why did Apple hamstring camera repairs on standard iPhone 12 but leave Pro Max module swappable? asks engineering group


Business insider 2013 agrees with you

Tho the New York Times from 2013 seems to disagree with you

Tho one has a bunch of prizes and the other not. Gonna google who’s it (smiley here)


When you tell Chrome to wipe private data about you, it spares two websites from the purge: Google.com, YouTube


Never the human’s name responsible attached to Company name

Google this and Other Big Companies names that but never the person/s responsible for controversial many times criminal actions, Your bluster is as effective as making fun of a wall full of graffiti, as if the wall was a real being. I watch This Week In Tech, (TWIT) I’ve seen you and heard youses.clutching them pearls about giant companies yet always yielding to whatever drivel anonymous spokesperson (“don’t blame the messenger excuse has been thoroughly debunked by observing Trump’s interactions with the press) and wondering out loud what can be done,”oh so sad the state of tech” why don’t you begin by attaching more names responsible for the shite you report. From suspicious changes in code to the regular big bro stuff you report.I’ve heard that github can help with some of this, dunno, maybe it an urban legend. regardless you call yourself journalists be one or let someone who will,be.

Critical vuln that lets miscreants hijack computers via Slack? *Sucks in air* We'll give you $1,750 for it


“They come from this culture” yup and have been consistent

As a long time lurker at El Reg (and TWIT) seems to me that security has never been part of this culture, from winxp all the way up to zoom none of these MoFos ( err, Men Of Fortune) has ever been punished for poor security and it’s consequences, not financially, not with jail definitely not social shame. Bill Gates is celebrated for his fight against malaria with OUR OWN MONEY, ahem,Hank Scorpio keeps trying to take over the world and he gets a cameo on tv¿, and every single critic of Mark Zuckerberg has a Facebook page, an Instagram account and bitches too his friends through WhatsApp.

Oopsie, I ran into a rant

Re: If Google have to positively approve these apps to appear on their store ...

Dunno about google never talked to IT tho it be interesting if we find out the actual person in charge of their budget...


Who is google? Nobody if you don’t name who’s responsible for that division

Who is google? Nobody if you don’t name who’s responsible for that division. Innit half assed to report on a problem, name the company responsible and not name the person at the end of the bucket?what snark you say? Liabilities? I call BS because I’ve read the rag for years and watch uncle Leo on the twit.tv network so I’m acquainted with at least one of your guys worldview, it seems representative of the whole company and supposedly it doesn’t stand for bullshit yet all you do is call out this giant anonymous CEO shield and not the actual physical person who signed off on whatever. It's as if you don’t know how to break down a big problem into small easier to solve ones? you’re not following,uh? You have ten articles about the behemoth Google but you could have ten articles about ten different managers who messed up at google. Still not following? You got a big mouth and tiny balls start naming names, agur

BAE Systems tosses its contractors a blanket... ban on off-payroll working under upcoming IR35 tax reforms


so what's the big deal? the market will work it out

companies are going to pay up for what their cheating the government and the contractors out off.

Isn't that how the market works? if you do t pay enough you're not gonna get talent to work for you. If you're not offered a raise or a permanent position then maybe it's time to sharpen them skills

At least that's the view for NYC and USA where the government is small for the poor and socialist for the rich and incorporated :)

Re: "Such a breach was entirely preventable"

Dunno, chances are he did screw a few of his richer peers and in high flying money matters I think only bernie madoff went to jail.word on the streets is because he stole from the super rich =\

Amazon tried to entice Latin American officials with $5m in Kindles, AWS credits for .amazon


5mill in the land of lavajato

Their latest bribe scandal j is measured in several BILLIONS,presidents and countries and Amazon wants ti but the unicorn (that's what's it for them at this point) for FIVE MILLONS in shitty tablets and cloud space? who would agree with that precedent? The lavajato scandal is as relevant if not more to this article to illustrate how much more insulting the offer really is.

Re: "Kind? Why? I'd have fired his useless ass."

"Unless you can point me at a company that will happily keep me on the payroll for not doing the job I was hired to do, of course. Note I said "company" not "government" "


Dunno, I was always under the impression that's how Microsoft made Windows.

That I know personally Xerox most definitely does/done that, UBS Warburg it whatever was called in the 00's. can't mention others because NDAs, I've also witnessed this in a few business units where if you're bringing a few millions in sales the person on the receiving end is fired for provoking the bully.

I worked as a low end tech for a few years and in catering for a couple more. It's amazing the shit you can witness if you make yourself small and keep your ears open.
