Disney Patents a Piracy Free Search Engine

JazzXP Shooting themselves in the foot (164 comments)

Doesn't this mean that search engines can freely show pirate content (including Disney content) for people to find now and not lose any safe harbour provisions? Otherwise they'd be infringing patents...

Your Phone Can Be Snooped On Using Its Gyroscope

JazzXP Re:So? (96 comments)

Basically an app can ask for permissions for the gyro only (if it even needs to) and be recording conversation.

JazzXP Re:Dumb dumb dumb advice... (280 comments)

I paid the $10 (or whatever it was) for KyPass on OSX. I use KeePass everywhere else. Works well for me.

How long do your computer mice last?

JazzXP Microswitches (361 comments)

The last couple of Logitech's I've owned, the microswitches have died in a lot quicker than I would have expected. Not sure if it's bad luck or if the quality has dropped. If this current one dies quickly, might be time to change brands.

That's nice that something grotesque is allowed, but me trying to post some artistic nudes (even with everything hidden) get taken down...

Twitter Seeking To Go Public

JazzXP Re:Alright folks, prepare for Twitter to suck... (56 comments)

This was exactly my thought when I read about it. Best way to ruin a company is to float it. No longer is it about the employees and customers, it's all about the shareholders.

Researchers Buy Twitter Bots To Fight Twitter Spam

JazzXP Very easy to get rid of the majority of spam (45 comments)

Twitter should be blocking any post that is only a link sent to someone they've never interacted with before. That would remove 90% of the spam I receive there.

Massive Amount of Malware Targets Older Java Flaws

JazzXP Re:Oracle Java: Bad (102 comments)

Actually most experienced developers will tell you that while backwards compatibility is holding it back, even minor upgrades tend to break things (in particular since Oracle took over).

Oracle Responds To Java Security Critics With Massive 50 Flaw Patch Update

JazzXP Re:The stupidity hurts my head. (270 comments)

We write an applet based trading platform, and due to the API adding a method with a name we were already using, we had to re-engineer heaps of our code (along with other Java issues). For them just totally discontinuing Java 6 as soon as Java 7 came out (and still had heaps of bugs) was a stupid mistake.

JazzXP Re:Good (244 comments)

When the Prime Minister openly mocks a person, their intentions are pretty obvious.

Assange Seeks To Sue Prime Minister Gillard For Defamation

JazzXP Good (244 comments)

While I'm not a fan of Mr. Assange (quite the opposite really), I find the way he has been treated by our government absolutely deplorable. Especially when you consider how people like David Hicks (trained with terrorists) and Shappele Corby (convicted drug smuggler) have had the government behind them trying to get them home.

Twitter Clampdown Could Impede Anonymous Tweets

JazzXP A simple spam filter would be nice (93 comments)

I just wish they'd block tweets that are directed straight at me, with a shortened link in them, from people I've never interacted with before.
