Useless lame company. 100% fake company.
Good for Apple. Targeted advertising is justification for their spying on people. Targeted advertising should be banned and the advertising industry can go to hell. Nobody likes adverts apart from advertisers and the advertising industry.
Google need to employ people with software to test and analyse new apps. Not just rely on software. Its lazy and easily affordable to employ people with the profits they make. Fooling software is easy.
Get your act together Google or flog Android to someone who cares.
I wish they would bring one out for the mac.
When is the "not going to spy on you" update coming out? I guess you would have to pay for that.
I think the Windows 10 philosophy of being on any machine, mobile or workstation doesn't work.
That was a few years ago. There is quite a lot of concern that online abuse is not being taken seriously by the police. For example https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/aug/21/online-hate-real-world-abuse-alison-saunders-guidance
We'll only be in trouble when AI is able to bullshit.
Re: I thought KAT was dead
That is because you live in fortress Sad to see the Australians are loosing another freedom. IP is grossly over priced.
Knee-jerk reaction from politician and plod. Only to be expected.
Seems surveillance of the population doesn't always work in preventing terrorism if thats what you call it.
Re: @ John Smith 19
And we passed our 11+.
I always though tablets were crap.
Germany to Facebook, Twitter: We are *this* close to fining you €50m unless you delete fake news within 24 hours
Its erosion of freedom again. I think their concerns about Facebook and Twitter are hyped.
Re: what do they expect
Its the IP industry taking the piss. If this business model is to continue it would be far better if supporters paid to just see their team's games. I'm a Burnley fan. I'll pay to watch Burnley's matches. That'll do fine. However, the "Premier League" wouldn't like it because clubs could then sell their own rights individually to the public.
They continue to erode your freedom in the UK so you can prop up the intellectual property industry. Poor old premier league. Things are even dodgier in the UK when you wonder why a government agency (BT) are putting millions of pounds into the pockets of the likes of Wayne Rooney.
The Android platform just got a bit flakier. Google don't seem to be doing very much about protecting their platform. Being "open source" looks pretty dumb and insecure for its users.
I guess the security services and the government like it that way.
He's in bed with the advertising industry. Another class A muppet.
Seems the Intellectual Property Industry have won in the UK. We really are being ripped off. You are losing your freedom on the internet to give and share.
Women watch more TV than blokes and watch TV during the day. That's why more of them get done for no license.
Oracle are just behaving like a patent troll.
So all the subs were down at the same time.
Thats pretty cool MOD. It must of taken some exceptional organising to achieve .
Its probably one of the reasons they bought out this policy. To put people from everywhere off going there.
I guess if security is important to you Android is avoided. Perhaps Google's development and implementation of Android has been so amateurish it seems it is done on purpose.
The security services are not going to complain though.
That was the most interesting point in the article. I think it refers to the trillions of dollars stashed overseas by Apple and other American companies to avoid paying tax. Trump has been to see Cook and so it seems Trump has done a deal with Apple to bring the money home and pay less tax.
So Apple and co are going to repatriate trillions of dollars into the US.
Immigrants are easy to exploit. Firms get more for their buck from immigrants especially if the employer has control of the issuing of the visa.
To the two the lads in Lebanon. Hope they were well paid.
What a repressive little country the UK has become. Police working for the intellectual property tyrants.
UK is really losing its freedom.
Its Ben Wallace the Intelligence services man and May who have pushed this through. Labour did not oppose it.
UK Loves VW
Meanwhile the UK government does nothing.
Re: Calling our bluff, are you?
"forced and immediate demerger of BT and Openreach."
How's this going to solve anything? It certainly cannot be privatised as this would be a security risk. BT is a government agency and whoever is the minister for culture and media needs to do their job and tell BT to get on with rolling out fast broadband and the chancellor needs to pay for it.
It simply comes down to government management.
Asking the end-user to be responsible for security.
Re: It will fix itself
It would be funny if it identifies people who are in fact recorded dead.
No Apple Car
Seems Apple may of decded to get out of the electric car/self-drive car business.
Unless you want a mobile living room or bedroom what is the point of owning a self-drive car?
Re: Seems prudent
In other words an expensive scalectrics toy.
Re: Uk.gov ?
Its the job of government to deal with these matters. Who else is there? The EU? The minister is just another waste of space.
Re: Shitting crikey!
Many Americans use Yahoo like many Americans use AOL. Bit 20th Century.
Re: Law retrospectively changing in...
I don't think there is anything else that could be done. These organisations cannot be fined or put in prison. All they could do is sack someone or move them to a different job. Having any trial would be impossible for security reasons unless it is conducted in secret.
Never quite understood why manufacturers think I would want to talk to my laptop, phone or Tablet. If I was disabled there might be some use for it or driving a car. Pretty useless technology.
Get one of these!! An Ikettle.
IoT is about charging higher prices for white goods.
This one is about £120.
How about a fridge? In fact its a "Fridge Hub".
Samsung call it revolutionary. I'd call it stupid.
This one around £4000
IoT = Higher prices.
You love to blame BT
But it might be Yahoo who are the problem.
Re: Things I learned today
Samsung rightly get shit. They are a massive company who should no better. They should be aware of internet security.
Some of their crap IoT like this http://www.samsung.com/us/explore/family-hub-refrigerator/
Wonder if you can update the firmware on this very expensive baby. .
You do realise that using Android 4.1.2 is a security risk if you are accessing e-mail for example.
We've been here before with Google. Google are not a serious player in anything apart from search engines and advertising.
Re: What about BT?
They probably have it slurped, monitored anyway because BT are a government agency who work hand in hand with GCHQ.
This monitoring was searching for a string of certain words not reading e-mails so I don't see this as such a big deal. How Yahoo went about it is another story.
IoT should be banned. Trouble is finding a politician in the UK who understands.
I was looking forward to seeing the pictures.
It just illustrates how poor software programming is these days.

Re: One problem..
The idea is, if you want an upgrade buy a new phone. Like 99% of Android manufacturers.
CISCO leave their firewalls and routers un patched for years and allow government agencies (and maybe others) to exploit these holes.
Just shows you cannot trust the IT security "experts".
It was a very professional job by whoever who did it. It was done by someone with pilot knowledge.
