Should be quite simple to set up an automated way to find hardcoded login IDs for the principal cloud servers and password keys in general ?
If not must be easy for hackers to download apps to search for these security bugs? or is the app code unreadable when downloaded from app store ?
As all there colleagues will know of their abortions, depression etc.
Happens all round the world especially when there is lots of agency staff as passwords get shared.
Government has so much info on citizens the health info its not that big a deal. They can probably get same info more succinctly by monitoring messages.
Modi a nasty fellow but the rollout of fibre and health records to villages is a good thing.
No mention of yield and iirc performance of Icelake.
Althouugh it was an architecture day if 10nm yield had improved significantly they would have shouted from the rooftops with a % yield quoted.
They didn't so consider this vapourware.
Must be very frustrating for the brilliant engineers to produce great designs that may not be manufactured in quantity
Hydrogen only works if solar is cheap enough. Thanks to wrights law and zero interest rates it is, epecially in politically stable places like Australia and Texas (Regulation lite compared to California so swifter take up of renewables)
At that point you can extract water from the atmosphere which would only add a small overhead to the electrolysis process.
For transition to renewable in UK there is a need for some emergency power for windless, cold dark evenings if a power station goes down. Some of this is supplied by second hand diesel engines sited in unpopulated areas from buses that are being retrofitted for day to day cleaner operations. So cheap it means more money available for the transition.
Data centres would be sited where company confident of a reliable grid to minimise emergency fuel use.
I expect Australia will move to electrolysis though doubt a pipe to Asia. Ammonia can be used in fuel cells and is a valuable chemical for fertiliser, easier to store and also transport.
Good on Microsoft for doing the research however.
Compared to previous quarter revenue in data centre and consumer down 5%ish and income 25%ish...even more for consumer so they may be having to give big discounts
Intel has used the same Auditor E&Y (of Wirecard infamy) since inception 50+ years ago. I expect another auditor would make them write down the investments in their 10nm fabs by a few billion.
Maybe TSMC might find room for Intel if Intel agreed to transfer some of their ASML ordered machines to TSMC at cost :-)
The analyst Charlie Demerjian who was one of the first to call out Intels failings several years back was tweeting a lot yesterday during the earnings call.
The principal target of Russia was ***.
Which is quite an irritating redaction.
TBH fully understand why intelligence services would not want to touch elections with a barge pole. They would be ripped apart. Happened before with Harold Wilson (almost certainly untrue) rumours.
Given Corbyn & Foot were both named as an "asset" by East European spy agencies in the past and Corbyn's interviews on RT it is little wonder that any interference in elections by intelligence services would be seen as biased.
Yes I expect Russia made mischief and I expect it was more noise with little effect. Bit like comments posted under a news article.
The first time this happened.
Questions were raised at the time about his integrity based on his previous actions in Ethiopia
In his first year he made Robert Mugabe a good will ambassador even though Zimbabwe medical facilities had been ruined during Mugabes rule.
I recall thinking at the time that the job was potentially a top 5 most important job in the world and he was not up to it.
There is a balance, especially as bureaucrats use data protection as the go to excuse when they want to avoid doing something. Even if they show good will it creates delays to rollouts.
Not saying abandon data protection just would have been easy for a lawyer to come up with a paragraph or two of sensible opt outs where there will be no prosecution.
Such as public agencies can share details of infected people where it assists tracing and contacting, as long as information deleted and media + social media specifically banned from publishing. Deletion of all details after 1 month plus a sunset clause for the exemption.
Couldn't have said it better.
Shockingly the movie Enigma chose a Pole as a bad guy. Which added insult to injury.
Hypocritically the movie was being screened at the same time that the press was complaining how Hollywood had nicked a true British story about an enigma machine on a submarine and rewriting history with American sailors as the heroes.
To be fair to USA Bletchleys success could only be widely exploited due to US manufacturing brilliance at producing Bombe machines in prodigious amounts.
There is a Polish proverb "Work first, pleasure after" which is why Polish soldiers are instructed that if confronted by a Russian soldier and a German soldier they must always shoot the Russian first.
Economist magazine does the rankings of democracies. Not perfect but pretty much the gold standard. You are welcome to come up with an alternative.
Countries split into leagues with top 2 considered to be a democracy. This comprises 75 countries. UK is league 1 mid table, slightly below Germany and above France.
USA iirc is league 2, mainly due to gerrymandering, lack of limits on campaign spending etc.
Until Xi came along China was heading in right direction. Democracy usually driven by middle class, the only non democracies richer that China were oil states that do not have income tax.
iirc my aws asked for no hard to falsify identifiable information other than credit card details.
KYC is imperfect but adds to a hackers hassle...usually deters people if the competitor is easier to sign on to.
From my insurance days we used to find a phone call was a great way to deter fraud (the surname and accent could trigger an alarm for any semi experienced call centre handler) ...although no doubt hackers with their social engineering skills may not be as vulnerable to this.
Plus a knock on impact to construction, transport and leisure/catering workers if people commuting less and fewer conferences.
Offices outsourcing non core activities overseas will also no doubt get a boost along with loss of jobs in call centres & admin as the move to online got a 5 year acceleration in 5 weeks
This regiment could really benefit from having additional territorial regiments.
Many civvies have immense hacking talents and would like to give back something.
Also and believe me or not I am being serious, many geeks who may not be the most macho, would love a pic of them in uniform to impress their family (and discretely on dating sites), even if the only time they wore the uniform was for the picture. Maybe a uniform with some sci fi touches.
Ammonia can be generated from renewables and in a fuel cell create no pollution
Has very high energy density compared to batteries, when considering its greater efficiency in an electric motor on a par with kerosene.
Drawback is has to be handled very carefully, however that level of competence is a given at the larger airports.
Currently the technology for the fuel cell not good enough but a little tinkering...
USA a democracy, saved UK and West 3 times in last century.
China a tyranny
As Orwell nearly said
" It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of acknowledging help of USA than of stealing from a poor box. All through the critical years many left-wingers were chipping away at English morale, trying to spread an outlook that was sometimes squashily pacifist, sometimes violently pro-Russian, but always anti-American.”
Tosh , zero evidence that President Trump is under Russia's thumb.
Last year he put a stop to the Nord2 gas line which has caused Russia no end of problems.
Also USA is a democracy , China aint. To me it is always democracy right or wrong. Democracies rarely go to war (yes be a pedant and publish the wikipedia entry of the democracy wars, most of which only happened because one side did not hear that a peace deal had been agreed).
Your Whataboutism is the enemy of peace and freedom.
Oxbridge has solvency issues as while very wealthy their pension assets currently guarantee the pensions of all other UK universities pension funds, many of which are probably broke if an unbiased actuary did the calculations.
The calculations used currently are somewhat similar to a stats model beloved by Imperial college
