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?

Digital Textbook Startup Kno Was Sold For $15 Million

nazsco Re:Speaking as someone in the industry (39 comments)

That is interesting. I'd guess they do not like your book because it is a dreaded school assignment to them. Maybe you should go for the schools and allow them to distribute for free after a small fee? that way it would be easier to enforce...

And I am curious if you add a plea against piracy on the book?

Blackberry 10 Sends Full Email Account Credentials To RIM

nazsco Re:What person thinks this is OK? (191 comments)

You may have already purchased such device if you have an Android.

Wifi passwords are sent to Google by default, on every device, email passwords sent to Motorola (owned by Google) on all Motorola devices (except for gmail... Guess they optimized since they already have those)

On ios, who knows? It's closed and phone home all the time.

Linux 3.10 Officially Released

nazsco Re:Nvidia drivers (157 comments)

They are dumb. Release the driver as opensource, and depends on the closed 3rd party code, shipped as the current binaryblob.

Open source devs would waste their time implementing open source version of those components, freeing nvidia ofof paying royalties in the future.

Ask Slashdot: How To Handle a Colleague's Sloppy Work?

nazsco Learn (332 comments)

Lear all you can. how can he do less work and not create bugs? (if he creates bugs, stop fixing his work and let the problem fix itself)

All in all, he is you tomorrow. You will get like him. Maybe there's a reason for that. maybe it's just indifference that comes with age. either way, i'd recomend you to learn his ways and start sooner, for as soon as you start that, you will get better pay, more respect, and a youger idiot to clean up after you.

Was Google's Motorola Mobility Acquisition a Mistake?

nazsco Re:I thought it was all about Apple (189 comments)

Sure it was.

- let's buy some crap for 12bi so we don't have to pay a couple billions in patent licenses.

It was because they wanted this money and they lost. They literally gambled with company money.

Startup Founder Plays Tech Press Like a Fiddle

nazsco debunked (135 comments)

This pretty much debunked the myth that being a woman in tech is difficult and that is kjust because women opt to do other things that we don't see them around. And that the whole issue is around only for a few individuals special interests.

What i really want to see is someone pull that coverage by being a 50-60 yr old male white developer. The only group that really is absent in tech despite trying.

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."
