The Sony Pictures Hack Was Even Worse Than Everyone Thought

nazsco oh the irony! (528 comments)

sony pictures tried to keep me out of the data i bought for them in the form of movie cassettes unless i bought their betamax player. Then they tried to take the data i bought from them unless i bought i laserdisc player. Then they realized they couldn't not bait me because dvds were smaller, so they tried with something smaller than dvs, but i was too smart to fall for minidisc. Then they tried with a mp3 player named after their old walkman that only played their format and was not a usb mass storage like all the others (what do they take me for? an apple customer? insulting). Later they tried with blueray. and this time they at least sold licenses for players from other brands and are managing to keep lots of other people away from their media.

now only if the hackers would hack my betamaxes and laserdiscs i bought from sony pictures and release it for me.

Is Chernobyl Still Dangerous? Was 60 Minutes Pushing Propaganda?

nazsco Re:60 Minutes Pushing Propaganda? (409 comments)

Valve Rolls Out Game Broadcasting Service For Steam

nazsco this is akin to Office Online (92 comments)

why would any streamer use this? this is clearly to try to force people to use donations to go directly to their steam wallet or whatever this is called.

gabeN is the antichrist. so he probably will pull that off.

but unless they have nice overlays, console support, any game support... well, i guess everyone can still play bejewled or something, select the option to share desktop and alt tab to league of legends...

Verizon Injects Unique IDs Into HTTP Traffic

nazsco Re:which Verizon services (206 comments)

> Any tips on moving to a pay-as-you-go plan that lets me keep my phone number?

DO NOT cancel your account!

call the new company, say you want to port your number.

the system is F*up... you will have to give the new co your account number AND PASSWORD for the old one. so if it is your SSN as it is by default, change it before if you care (or stop believing that SSN is secret, you are a grow up).

anyway, i cancelled ATT and then ported to TMOBILE. ATT was obliged by law to reactivate my account to complete the transfer... but that didn't hold them against mailing for a NEW 2yr contract and cancelation because i "hired" the service again... costed me a couple calls to short it out since they can't charge you.

anyway, the system sucks. read online and follow the steps. i had lots of headache for not following the dumb non-sense crap.

be a happy sheep. and good luck.

Verizon Injects Unique IDs Into HTTP Traffic

nazsco Re:Free market? (206 comments)

last time i heard about US ISP/mobile provider shenanigans there was a debate on net neutrality (which the tel cos were wining) arguing that they were not common carriers.

well, that just goes to prove that they are not common carriers. they can even monetize on the service they are already selling you. they don't consider your communication protected in any way.

it is like opening a restaurant and selling your scraps to feed cows. except that they are the only restaurant in town. and after 12sec they take away your plate and consider what is left scrap. oh, and dog bags are forbiden on the contract.

i wonder if the FSF pays verizon to get the IDs from the senate to advertise to them... how would they like it? probably would jail everyone shouting commie. or is that terrorist nowadays?

> Don't use Verizon as your ISP?

How quaint. A foreigner.

well lad, in the US of A, you have the freedom of choosing the ISP that was selected to monopolize your burrough.

Or you can use the one mobile provider that has good coverage in your city instead, if you don't want to use that pre-selected ISP.

AT&T To Use Phone Geolocation To Prevent Credit Card Fraud

nazsco Re: Stupid (228 comments)

what about a system that locks your Att sim when you are overseas? and maybe auto buy a local sim with your credit card if you try to use your phone? or just cut your hand? anything that is not allowing att sim used overseas is a win.

Drive-by Android Malware Exploits Unpatchable Vulnerability

nazsco err not 4.2 (120 comments)

The still most widely deployed version, 2.3, is fine. At least if you don't run apps with ads, but then, there's no hope left for you anyway.

Nobody mentions which version introduced the bug in the browser, but I'm guessing it's 3.1. But i know very little.

Kansas To Nix Expansion of Google Fiber and Municipal Broadband

nazsco Re:The Invisible Hand (430 comments)

The market is already regulated, and it did not prevent that. Because you all are clueless about current regulations as you will be on future regulation.

We already have regulation against a politician doing seemly dumb things for the people. This is obviously a back room deal with some telco or do no evil Google. Yet, no place it was mentioned WHO signed/proposed the bill.

Unless you learn to pay attention to that little detail, which is the basis of current regulation, by votes or criminal prosecution, how do you expect more regulation to do any difference when the basic ones are already ignored?

Google giving up on opensocial0.8+ Waiting Final.

nazsco nazsco writes  |  more than 5 years ago

nazsco writes "Orkut, Google's testing ground for opensocial before they move it to more prime time products --e.g. iGoogle and Gmail, has aparently pulled the plug on supporting the development versions of the OpenSocial specs before they go gold. The official forum for developers previously had active support and releases announcements. Now it's all about spec paper work. The google groups has also stopped accepting new posts since May 14th! The last post about new tech releases on the blog is from May 3rd. After that, the blog became a pool of internet available IDEs and then several other stories sending developers to other networks. Note that this come just after they fixed a security issue by disabling all forms of profile views of the widgets that do not use template views. which is described in 0.7 and greatly refined in 0.8 only. Brazilian and Indian developers wonders how much long the google groups blackout will last."
