Stalker attacks Japanese pop singer – after tracking her down using reflection in her eyes



I thought I was the only weirdo look at the reflections in people's eyes in TV shows and movies as you can always see unseen info, like camara and light postions. Didn't think someone would take it to this extreme level.

BBC said it'll pull radio streams from TuneIn to slurp more of your data but nobody noticed till Amazon put its foot in it


VPN baby

VPN connected in a different country, all services available. Sorted!!

May Day! PM sacks UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson for Huawei 5G green-light 'leak'


Re: What's the security issue?

Bloody hell you lot are acting like he just sold the queens undies on eBay, what's wrong with ya? calm down. He has brought attention to the dodgy Chinese infiltrating our core networks, is that what you want is it? Just worry about something that is worth being worried about. This is much ado about nothing


To Russia with Love

I wonder if Mr Williamson told Mrs May to "Shut up and go away" lol

Meet YouTube-linked games-streaming Stadia, yet another thing Google will axe in two years (unless it kills Twitch)


Re: Sorry Google, no.

Exactly my thoughts too, they can get stuffed. I very rarely download games from the PSN, I tend to buy hard copies. It's a great feeling when you can look at your huge games stack next to your entertainment systems. It's not the same when you look at a boring list of games online.


Terrible News

This is bad news guys, and I for sure will not be supporting it. I like going to shops and buying second hand games and picking them up and holding in my hands. This will KILL the second hand games market. Also what happens when the Internet connection disconnects?? I like playing my games offline, it's not always about online play. I have a PS4, when the PSN goes down, everyone playing Destiny and other always online games are stuffed. We will lose control of our gaming. Please guys, don't let this happen, Google are taking to take over EVERYTHING!!

Lone staffer killed our shields, claims etailer Gearbest after infosec bods peep at user deets


Re: Personally I hate GearBest, so love this story

Brilliant, means I don't have to pay stupidly high prices and shipping costs. Don't know what your problem is, unless you work for the Inland revenue of course.

Samsung Galaxy's flagship leaks ... don't matter much. Here's why


Taking the mick

I will not be getting this phone. Taking the headphone jack away is a massive deal breaker for me. I don't like wireless headset and won't be forced into getting rid of my wired devices. This is all Apples fault, as what they do, other manufacures follow. Over £1000 for a phone? Get lost! no headphone jack? JOG ON SAMSUNG, I will keep my Galaxy S7 and S9+ for a long time.

Granddaddy of the DIY repair generation John Haynes has loosened his last nut



Without a doubt, any new vehicle I've brought, a Haynes manual is purchased not long after. Brilliant books which has helped me untold amount of times. I just wish all the pictures were in colour, that would made life even easier, but increases production costs and I guess the books would of been a lot more expensive. YouTube has taken over from Haynes manuals for me now.

RIP Mr Haynes.

Hosted my own email server because of this crap

This is exactly why I decided to use the following guide to build and host my own email server -


Slightly outdated, but still valid once you tweak a few elements like choosing different CA or DNS provider. Or you can do it the lazy method and use iRedMail - https://www.iredmail.org/ which is scripted.

If a Linux begineer like myself can do it, anyone who is fairly computer savvy can.
