The problem of conflict of interest occurs when there is only one supplier of the software in question.
When I actually sat down and through about it, losing a fully configured Android phone is actually a big deal as it provides ready access to all kinds of accounts, including ones Google account. This could potentially allow the thief to engage in all kinds of malicious behaviour, some of which could have major implications beyond the scope of the theft.
Luckily for me it seems that the thief did the usual thing: Dumped the sim card, wiped the phone and switched it off. It's probably had it's IMEI changed by now and been sold on to some oblivious punter, possibly some oblivious punter in another country.
Still, the potential for serious issue is making me have second thoughts about replacing the phone with anything capable of doing much more than calling.
My question is this: Are there any serious solutions out there for Android that secure against theft?
By serious I mean solutions that go beyond the laughably easy to defeat "Find My Phone" and "Remote Wipe" options provided at present. Presently I'm thinking along the lines of:
- Full encryption of phone contents
- Some kind of "Travel Safe" mode that would lock the phone down and trigger a full wipe of not unlocked correctly (Including wiping the phone on next boot if not unlocked before being switched off/running out of battery).
So, any ideas?"
I do, that's why I only had 2 kids.
Ad you can put measures in place to discourage having more then a couple chilred.
I say the following statement as someone who benefits from it: Stop giving tax breaks for children
give people 1000 tax break for not have any children, 500 for having 1, 0 for having 3, -500 for 4 and so on.
"iety. Agriculture, as it has been for millennia, is monoculture, you can grow plants in a non monoculture way but that is not farming/agriculture as it has ever been done. "
You could have just said you have no clue about modern farming techniques instead of using a long winded and ignorant sentence.
All agriculture is destructive by definition. We don't need to false dichotomy here, TYVM.
You can have an agenda. You just need to be able to realize it's wrong when you look at facts.
Open data, Critical thinking skills and an actual open mind.
You still need to get pwoer to the station that's send the microwave energy.
Plus ther ewould be more losses.
Or did you mean from space? In that case:
They want to know how to generate power at a place that gets lots of sun half the year and has a steady wind?
And they chose solar and wind? wow..shocking.
Stop asking questions that are answered in the in article as a headline.
Yeah, that out of context lyrics must mean the song is about hackers! clearly not about a soul wrenching, but inevitable break up.
IN fact, anything with the word broken in it means hacker !
Sigh. Your herp has derped.
"Hmm...elitist art person?"
oh, someone mentions what they where doing when something happened and now their elitist art person?
May you should get a little culture so you can have some perspective? Not everyone who like going to museums is elitist.
She might b, but the jump to that statement says a lot about you.
Protip: They can be a great place for a date, because there is always an opportunity for conversation. Even snarky conversation.
You've never been to the smoking gun? you should check it out.
"Aaaaand this immediately sets off my warning bells that you probably did something monumentally stupid in order for this to happen."
Clearly, but so what?
You're ding the same thing as the media, stop it.
Hacking is something people do, what they do determines good / bad or legal / illegal.
If it's worth watching, why isn't it worth paying for? If not a tick, the redbox? the library? Amazon?
Of course, if it isn't available, I really have no issue with leeching a copy.
You should never trust a documentary. What you see is what fills a preconceived narrative of the producers.
They could have 100 people say: "Well, I stole it and I shouldn't have", and 5 that say "They had it comin'" and guess who gets past editing?
Gasland, fast food nation, and so on are all piles of fact-less crap.
Nature documentaries are about the only ones not full of intentional lies.
FTR: I used to do volunteer work with prisoners. The vast majority of them did NOT blame the victim, or claim to be innocent.
Hey, look the media got something wrong...again.
Those stupid gloryholers.
