Unfortunately with MS taking WMC out of WIndows 10 it is making it very difficult (ie: not possible) for many to upgrade to windows 10. This is almost as ill-thought of as the PS4 taking out DLNA or Vista UAC. I realize that the article is about the phone OS, but the path they are going with this makes it very difficult to "Trust" the MS eco-system... it would be like if Apple suddenly decided that it would no longer support AirPlay on its next OS release....

Confirmed affected: TMobile and Sprint Samsung Note 3 and potentially the Galaxy S4 and upcoming Galaxy S5. This change affects ALL Samsung KitKat 4.4.2 devices, including the Note 2, S3 once KitKat is released to those devices.
Time to call your carrier and lodge a complaint to ask that they request that this "feature" be returned to the original behavior.

Yup... The blockbuster in Amarillo at the time insisted that I did not return the items. They were rude and tried to bill me full price for two DVDs. It was only when I insisted that they watch some security tapes from the night in question that clearly showed me returning the items did they stop harassing me. That was when Netflix was first starting in 1997..It was a no brainer to switch from Blockbuster to Netflix right then and there and I am still with Netflix... And people wonder why Blockbuster went out of business....
One reason that you may not hear of these breaches in places outside the US is that many use PIN and CHIP cards that make it MUCH more difficult to use or steal the credit card numbers.
Visa and MasterCard and Amex already use these outside the US... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EMV and they are supposed to be mandatory for the us in the next couple of years. Maybe the deployment should be expedited? For a standard that has been in wide use for over 15 years elsewhere, its about time that the US finally catches up....
well... at least is not as confusing as having the password be "password"
General:: the deactivation password is "password"

The problem is that the internet has a VERY long memory...not just "nudes", but other items as well. Once its out there.... there really is no way to get it back...
Just a one example.... Many people that used to post on USENET in their "younger" days are now finding that items that they had thought were LONG gone off the USENET "spool" are now coming back to haunt them. This is because when google first started its google groups service, one of the items that they had done was to purchase old backup tapes of USENET posts and indexed all of that into their engines. Google bought Deja-News and other usenet providers to gain access to the data. Suddenly stuff that normally would have been gone in 18months is now available to search/find.
The only way to post nowadays to assume that the information will be seen by the ONE person you may not want to see the info in 5-10-20 years.. So be careful what gets out there...Slashdot included.
Old news. This has been an issue for YEARS.
Microsoft used to use and even advocate
It was only recently that they stopped when the SSL registrars will no longer accept
I have also seen several networks using
I wonder who took the lead from whom?
Apple iDevices. anyone?
I guess it really Depends on your definition of "Prompt" either legally or culturally. In some cultures payment of invoices after 30-120 days is considered normal business practice.
I guess she learned the hard way...
Dont talk to cops....
Well... Time to use facebook system against them. They currently have 881 likes. Time for all those people that "liked" their page to unlike it. This would be one easy way to send them and their advertisers a message.....
