Soviet Union Spent $1 Billion On "Psychotronic" Arms Race With the US

andyjb Re:Seems reasonable enough. (230 comments)

Its a pity this stuff doesn't work though - it would have made the recent NSA leaks a lot harder to prove - and much easier to suppress!

UK Town To Get Driverless 'Pods' Mixing With Pedestrians

andyjb Re:Really? (111 comments)

...stealing a great line from Terry Pratchett: Note for Americans and other aliens: Milton Keynes is a new city approximately halfway between London and Birmingham. It was built to be modern, efficient, healthy, and, all in all, a pleasant place to live. Many Britons find this amusing.

Limo Company Hack Exposes Juicy Targets, 850k Credit Card Numbers

andyjb Re:Hold Them Responsible (43 comments)

They are resposible - if they have been deemed to be in breach of PCI compliance, they will not be granted "safe harbour" by their issuing bank / {AMEX, Visa, MC}. In a nutshell it means that they will find it more expensive to do business from now on. It does often happen however that a business will decide that being PCI compliant is more expensive than the fines...

andyjb Re: Iran... (361 comments)

> Also, it is considered dishonorable for a man to admit ignorance.

So how do you explain that fucking bearded cunt in a suit saying stuff like `the holocaust didn't happen` and `we have no homosexuals in Iran`?

FPS Games That Need a Remake

andyjb Re:Easy one: Descent (518 comments)

You could make it work with a controller AND a motion detector (Kinect, Move, etc) so that you can use the controller for weapons/maps, and body movements for ship control.

UK Government Crowd-Sourcing Censorship

andyjb can't do blanket submissions (262 comments)

I tried http://www.dailymail.co.uk/* but it didn't work. seriously though - this seems open to abuse. Presumably they have to get a threshold number of complaints before they will look at something.

What's Happened In Mobile Over the Past 10 Years

andyjb Re:Hmm (149 comments)

yes, petty poor in terms of insight. also a bit US centric really. I'm pretty sure Nokia released a product before 2006, and that they've been more than just an entry level phone manufacturer before and since (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nokia_products). Of course this was before they seemed to stop bothering, or got stuck chasing apples tail depending on your point of view. IMO windows has never released a noteworthy phone either.

The First Windows 7 Zero-Day Exploit

andyjb Re:Secured by Default (289 comments)

yes, but that's still not great is it? esp when it could be safer by design. It doesn't seem as if it would take a more-easy-to-spot DOS attack either - just a lightweight process occasionally spamming these bad URIs to Server 2008 and win7 boxes on the network.
