My bank does that. The passwords I'm forced to use there are much shorter, and much weaker than I would use normally.
Also, open source code that breaks when you use passwords longer than 20 characters. I'm looking at you Opencart....
until someone tells us that two factor authentication is a bad idea, because it'll get used for phishing scams when people think they've been logged out of something. The biggest security hole is between the keyboard and the screen.
Don't worry, it's okay if you replace the vowels with numbers and easy to guess symbols, like Intel told us to do in 06.
Agreed. The real question is... why are we still using passwords?
My feeling is that, as an industry, we just enjoy the pain of it.
We fucking relish it.
They are far less reliable than "Japanese" cars, and probably "American" cars
I'm sure there are lots of differing sources of opinions online, but this site lists VW just after all of the Japanese brands: So, there's a reason to choose VW over American -- build quality.
Why choose VW over the Japanese offerings? Because the Japanese are always about two years behind everyone else when it comes to incorporating new technology in their vehicles. And, they're boring. Just look at the Camry and Accord -- how boring and bland can you get?
The emails were a felony only in your imagination. If the Republicans keep pulling shit like this they will become even more irrelevant in reality than you imagine the other party is.
More irrelevant? Oh you mean having both houses, the presidency and almost 2/3rds of the governorships is irrelevant? Idiots like you are why the democratic party is dead. You live in fucking la la land. If you had an honest bone in your body we wouldn't be stuck with a one party system but no, you have to be a lying partisan pile of shit and ruin a once great republic with your severe lack of integrity.
I may not have all the facts, but I certainly have a clue. Something you don't realize when your world comes to consist of what is contained in a single article.
I'm a TMO customer. Nice try troll.
Most plans lower you to 2G speeds well below that.
T-Mobile lowers you to 4G speeds. I know reading is hard but FFS why comment if you don't have a fucking clue?
Where I work the average IT person stays 5 to 8 years. Most of my co-workers are 15 year vets. I can't imagine how crappy these places must be if the average is only two years. Hell it can take a year just to get someone comfortable int he environment.
Why is this news. Manufacturers have defects all of the time. It's a small number of phones. Who cares!
It's not like they randomly bust into flames or anything.
The Pixel phones have been plagued by issue after issue. For a "premium" device the QA has been pretty terrible.
Say what you want about Apple, but they would never do shit like this.
You mean like Apple Music constantly asking me to subscribe when I just want to play a local music file on my phone? Or the constant nagging to enable icloud services?
When you're given an OS or OS update for free, expect upselling.
I'd rather just believe that it's done by little elves running around.
