The upgrade nag changed from "hit the x, and it stops the nag", to "hit the x and windows upgrade remains scheduled" so you wake up a few days later and windows 10 is installed.
I consider myself a hawk about those things and got caught by it, 100% not wanting to upgrade.
I don't know to what degree it has been rolled out but in my neck of the woods every comcast router has two radios one for the customer and one for xfinity wifi. The initial excuse for this was to support xfinity users wherever they are but I have a feeling this was the ultimate goal.
I wasn't using my comcast router for wifi so I turned it off and used my linksys. A year later i began having wifi issues nonstop and after using wifianalyzer I saw that they had turned on the other radio and it was like double the signal strength as my router.
That said, most people rarely use their phone to make calls anymore so I suspect they will basically offload all voice to Verizon and everything else will use wifi.
Good point. I forgot that Snowden was a part of a contractor who probably lined a lot of pockets on K street.
I have heard the theory that game/app devs do this but I find it hard to believe (in a couple instances maybe but not in any meaningful volume). Regardless of their intentions it would be a huge smear on their company to be authoring malware to thwart piracy.
As to groups doing this, I don't think that either, it's just people taking the app/game/etc and bundling it with their malware.
Like I said, I haven't been to these sites in ages but I doubt a whole lot has changed. People who do illegal stuff are very unlikely to complain when illegal stuff victimizes them.
Ohh I was sure, I ran everything in a sandbox VM and plenty of them were really nasty trojans etc.
These people are citizens too, do they not realize they are trying to protect an agency that does not have their best interest in mind?
I get it when the people getting the paychecks to do this kind of stuff want to protect their jobs but congresspeople? WTF?
I haven't been on TPB in a long time but I recall there being tons of malware/viruses in application/game downloads. I don't think there is some ulterior motive here.
You are either for drawing and quartering him or for complete pardon. No in between here folks.
Tesla didn't hire Steve Wozniak to do PR, Chevy did.
It would seem copy has more rights than people.
.... to explain how it came up with the $100 million penalty figure."
Ooh Ooh pick me!
They sat down with Wells Fargo lawyers and accountants and came to an agreed upon amount.
I don't know how people continue to bank with a place that has repeatedly been shown to do everything they can to screw their customers, it wasn't too long ago they were appealing the class action suit because they were stacking debit transactions largest to smallest to maximize overdraft revenue.
Has a battery exploded yet?
I'd be interested to read that. I can't imagine that would be active informants, maybe just people 'on the books' who have or may inform?
I could be wrong but I have a feeling that the number is this large because they have dozens of informants in ongoing investigations engaging in illegal activities so it could be at any given time the FBI has 15 informants on a daily basis allowed to engage in illegal activity.
Doesn't seem so outlandish in that context. They do investigate a lot of crimes that take a lot of investigative work do to the sophistication of the persons and or groups involved in the crimes.
