Comment He didn't prove any flaw (yet) (Score 4, Informative) 160

He believed an attack could be done via a DAB broadcast, but from the article, he doesn't seem to have tried on a real car.

That said, car companies do a lot of idiot stuff these days, like the trunk which opens automatically when you put your foot under the car and you are nearby. This is just a big gift for thieves, just wait for tourists with a car full of stuff to leave their car, stand in the vicinity and put your foot under the car when they leave but they are still near enough to allow the trunk to open...

Comment We, Gods of OpenSSL (Score 1) 69

We, Gods of OpenSSL are announcing that there will be a patch in 2 days. We will not tell you what it is as you could patch it yourself or use any of the forks that we dislike like LibreSSL. Surely we will not reveal what it is as bad people could use it (trust us, we tell you they cannot already). The only thing we will say is that it was introduced after 1.0.0,so we are sure you won't find out and that The Big Vendors who pay us will be able to deliver a patch when they are ready. And bad guys won't be able to annoy you because we know they are morons and won't find out...

Submission SourceForge (owned by Slashdot Media) installs ads with GIMP-> 5

careysb writes: SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

If you are so rich that you want to show off with a special watch, why don't you buy a Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor at about $1M? That one is for sure beautiful and will show off your wealth much better than that cheap Apple watch.
Obvioulsy, you should also get a Richard Mille RM 56 to switch from time to time.

If you buy an Apple watch, then you are probably not rich enough.

Comment Re:one word: Barbecoa (Score 2) 125

That should be familiar to any Oliver fans and hardcore critics alike. For those in neither camp, Barbecoa was Oliver's butchery that was shut down last June after receiving an "A Hazardous" rating from the Food Standards Agency following complaints of food poisoning form several of his restaurants that also received poor FSA ratings for general hygiene. Oliver was also fined £17,000 over this scandal, consisting of just one specimen charge of violating the Food Safety Act, which is pretty fucking disgusting after his ironically calling the US fast food industry out for unsafe kitchen practices. He should have been shut down altogether. Oh, semi-insider info: I have it on very good authority that his restaurants have a higher staff turnover than practically every other sector. They are hellish places to work in. Certainly not worth the wage slavery. The management expect new staff to already know how it all works (in Oliver's eclectic kitchen system!?), training is not only nonexistent it's an inside joke that "training" is a curse word. Most of his staff are school leavers. The only ones over the age of 18 are upper management.
