Guess what I use at work
I've been reading Slashdot and the like for more than twenty years now and the relative amount of vulnerabilities reported for MS products, especially IE and Outlook is so significantly higher that not using that already makes a huge difference. Of course other software is also not without its faults but I could say that your approach of treating all software as equally bad is paranoia.
Now that we've both insulted each other I think I can safely say that we agree that you have to find software that gives the best balance between risk and usability for the situation you use it in.
Same here. I hate AV software with a passion bcause it slows your computer to a crawl, gives a false sense of security and once it's on your computer it takes a complete reinstall of the OS to get it off again. The best AV practices are:
Never use MS software to browse the internet and read email
Use an ad blocker
Never even read email from unknown sources, let alone open attachments from there.
MAKE BACKUPS of your files.
That only works if you have no one to talk to.
Exactly and that is why this is precisely not what I want: yet another stand alone messaging application. It's time messaging becomes standardized. The only institution with enough power to do that is the EU.
I wish the EU would force makers of messaging software to standardize the protocols they use so that I can choose to use the program I want to use. As it is now you have to use what everybody uses to stay in touch with your friends, so now I have to give the datasuckers at Facebook all the information I so desparately don't want them to have because Whatsapp is a handy tool that everyone uses. I would gladly pay for a program that does what Whatsapp did before it was part of Facebook and nothing else, but I can't now because I can't force friends and relatives to use the same thing I do.
"This is your Tesla speaking. Thank you for taking your hands off the steering wheel. I know this great game: Hit the Granny! Look, there's one! Weee!"
You can't expect people to know more about autopilots. The person you replied to is marked as a troll bit she is just saying waht every non-nerd would say. Therefore I wonder how long Tesla will still get away with their 'but in the fine print it says...' rethoric.
Hm, where I come from that applies to internet service too.
That is nonsense of course. Pollution is all the stuff we throw away because we have no use for it. CO2 may not be very toxic but it's still pollution, even the CO2 you breathe out.
To help improve your replies I have the following suggestion: after you read or heard or saw something that upset you, count to 100 before you formulate a reply. During the time you count to 100 you will calm down a bit, and then you will be able to formulate a coherent response instead of the mindless drivel you posted above. It's better for all of us, you'll soon find.
Apple can do whatever it wants to. You don't have to buy their stuff. I don't get why people find it necessary to make a fuss about stuff like this.
That last thing is because the UK hasn't left te EU yet. And even now the negative implications of the outcome of the referendum are already visible.
Thank you moronoxyd for answering the exact same thing I would have answered. That saves me a lot of typing
