Good for you westerners.
Switching network carrier is a trivial action for you already.
In China, you have to change to a new phone number when switching to another network carrier.
You want a Google-free Android?
Come to China, the glorious motherland provides exactly what you're looking for!
Having UPnP open on the Internet facing side
No, it not that UPnP itself that is opened on the Internet facing side. It's that some router default to have their web admin interface accessible on the Internet facing side, so they can be easily hacked.
THEN there's the problem that many routers don't properly sanitize UPnP rules which made the reflected attack possible.
So many use upnp advise because no-one understand what an IP address or a port is ...
For the average Joe, they bought a console to have hassle-free gaming experience.
"Fuck that! If I wanted to fiddle with things, I'd have bought a stupid computer instead!" is the default mindset.
Re: cut out the middleman
because multiple websites are routinely hosted on a same IP and only distinguished by domain names.
Re: 'the rest of the world will develop an ICANN-replacement that they can live with.'
Sorry to break this to you but Russia and China will be firmly backing ICANN's practice on this.
The price of iPhone X...
is not a problem with the iPhone X,
.... it's a problem with YOU.

Re: Tokens "...when a card is swiped..."
We Chinese are used to use the word "swipe" for all kinds of transaction forms, including but not limited to NFC, MST, QR code, contact chip and sonic.
Re: Tokens "...when a card is swiped..."
Not all PoS support bonking yet here in China. And since bonking is processed by a different (and less mature) system than MST here in China, it's very often to run into PoS that can only work with MST or contact chip.
Distributed Hash Table
Does basically the same thing?
Just go into the "ease of access" section in the settings app, you can find all kinds of gem.
Re: CSV stands for Character Separated Values.
No. The Chinese version of Excel 2016 explicitly commented "Comma Separated" after the .csv extension.
Yet GPU prices are still rocketing
"migrate out of here"
Thank god it's VMware who's laying off. Image what a bloodbath it would be when one of the OpenStack corps lay off.
Really? Even my computerly-challenged wife installed Ubuntu on her machine _without my help!_
These kind of users are better of with an iPad Pro than an actual PC.
Ask for refund?
The Complete Care package for my Alienware 15R2 (i7-6700HQ) expires on April 2018. Do you think I can ask Dell for a refund for my laptop for this reason?
(Un)surprisingly, yes you can.
Re: That probably explains..
Because your daughter wants a even shinier new iPhone every year and needed a excuse to retire the old one.
Re: at least one Samsung which had a feature ..
That feature puzzles me. If you're looking at your phone for prolonged time without touching it, then you're either watching videos or reading ebooks, and those apps already routinely prevent screen lock.
Although vSphere and vRealize are vastly more suitable for the NFV-I and NFV-O scenarios, you just can't beat free goodies.
Inspur surprised me quite a bit. Last time I heard, they hooked up with VMware? Guess that really paid off.
Just goes to show how clueless some film makers are.
Looking at you, "Your Name."
Re: So what happened to the 12,000 ton Chelyabinsk meteorite?
Burnt up / vaporized in high atmosphere.
Maybe just pure statics on the clips themselves.
Deduced from unique cookies / AD-IDs.
Re: when you like what you do...
and when you hate your wife so much.
Re: More depressingly...
"Presumably that's (mostly) large companies sending out marketing garbage as hosted content or images. Surely that's no loss to you?"
Or maybe just a lazy way to workaround potential font/code page/rendering engine issues?
Re: "I have to say Excel is one thing Microsoft got right."
"...then waited an age for it to figure out what it's doing? (Even on a modern 8 core "business" laptop)?"
"business" laptops have SHIT CPUs (and even shittier cooling), no matter how many cores they've got. You need a mobile workstation (or at the very least a gaming laptop) to do proper number crunching.
“colour, materials and finish”
Because only losers care about Max-Q.
Praise the mother land!
No elections = No elections hacked!
How hard can it be to change the sig. of a lossy JPEG?
Without using AI, I don't think there's any reliable way to identify a JPEG file that has been through some of the most basic modifying.
There's already a solution
It's called an Omni-treadmill.
It sure ain't the Texas we knew any more.
Someone could just mow down ppl and comit suicide before getting killed?
Can you patent an algorithm?
Hmm, no matter. Baidu and Yandex will find ways to pirate it anyway.
Re: what part of end to end doesn't he understand
Technically possible: just make the client covertly CC everything it sends to the mothership.
What about the warrant?
Does running sudo in that Linux void your warrant just like rooting your Galaxy phone?
If my router isn't getting patched any time soon, does enabling MAC filtering protect against this attack?
Just try to set a password to VMware's Photon OS
I challange you to come up with a password accpeted by that OS without you needing to write it down.
among logics of course!
What else would you expect from a country that would abandon it's allies time and time again when they're in the most dire situation?
Alipay has been doing this for years.
Subtitle misplaced "下次", should have been "下次说你是俄国人"
You clearly didn't understand the threat model being discussed here
I'm suprised they haven't got bombed yet. Maybe they just know who to NOT pissoff.
Re: "scalpel-fodder" ?
Lasers are what we use for scalpels these days.
Re: Hold on, if I read this right
Free with a 2 year contract, just like your normal phone purches.
Hmm, so this patch cannot be applied over-the-air?
Re: I just replaced the HDD in my laptop with...
So like what? An external USB HDD casing never occurred to you?
Any sane tinker in your shoes would have bought an SSD together with a USB HDD casing. Put the SSD in as the boot drive and put your old HDD into the USB casing for extra data space.
