SAP patched this problem back in 2010, and issued security notes for it made available to all its customers, and notified them all. The problem here is that some customers don't pay attention to their security notices and carry on regardless.
They are also first and foremost a business, that makes money, human rights come a long way after that. Its no coincidence that well over 1% of the US population resides behind bars.
So its BMW's programming team verses Google's, I know where I'm placing my money...
If they really did get all of our SIMs private keys (which seems quite likely) the costs will be extreme to replace all SIMs - so it seems to me that this is what they want us to believe to keep costs down.
So it seems to me that GCHQ are admitting that mass surveillance is no longer effective after Edward Snowden.
Al Murray has covered this topic in some depth here .
or perhaps, allegedly, Apple's legal team put these people (the plaintiffs) up to it just so they could easily dismiss future suits of this type. I wouldn't put it past them.
A shame I cannot edit (on new slashdot) to correct my own posts - as a few words appear truncated...
Here's guessing that the EU competition commission won't like this much at all. So I guess this version won't be for the European market.
Firstly this kind of technique can be applied in post processing with better results (not wanting to advertise but for example using photomatix ) than can be achieved in the camera. In post processing this technique can be applied equally to Canon or Nikon or Sony or Panasonic (pick your favourite manufacturer) images, and really the only reason it hasn't reached Nikon/Sony/others in camera yet is that there isn't such a big firmware modding community following with Nikon/Sony/others. So Canon certainly has that advantage (a bigger modding community) - (but then again as the meme goes; "Canon is the camera designed by engineers for engineers and Nikon the camera designed by photographers for photographers").
OK - so now try using this technique to take pictures of objects that are moving; you instantly see the benefit of a sensor with inbuilt increased dynamic range. HDR photography relies on multiple exposures being combined together. This means that they are forced to be static, either that or they suffer from side effects such as ghosting , where anything moving across the image will be present in one of the exposures - and not necessarily in the same place in the other, leading to some weird looking end results. Alignment of the image is another issue - you need the camera on a tripod to make this work really well.
So really this technique does not replace a superior
When your kids go round to their mates house and they got a playstation 4 / Xbox 1 and pretty soon your kid will think your old 8 bit games really suck.
Also Turing was known to frequently conduct experiments involving cyanide, and it is suspected that his death was more an accident than intentional.
