I for one will sleep easier.
Are people still saying cyber? :(
do u cyber?
hackers everywhere are definitely worried.
..... a what now?
so that's.... good right?
Well, that's just not true...
(mainly for Angelina Jolie waking up in a sweat with a lip piercing, but hey)
WHERE'S CHINA? I DON'T KNOW, LET'S LOOK IT UP IN ENCARTA.
if you google Encarta, the Wikipedia page for Encarta comes up before the Encarta encyclopedia page
It was the internet in a box <3
you could actually buy a disk that constituted a significant amount of the web, so you could browse it offline. That just seems... mental, now.
Although anyone with a few spare Terabytes of storage and a big internet connection can download Wikipedia. They don't encourage it though, but Wikileaks were positively encouraging people to create their own backup copies.
AND A GRAINY VIDEO OF AN ANIMAL KILLING ANOTHER ANIMAL. I THINK IT MIGHT BE A CHEATAH.
Fucking hell. This bullshit is only gonna get worse isn't it?
But surely the predictable and gratuitous PR friendly wafting about of an iPad is completely outweighted by the fact that they're using the solidly 90s word 'cyber'.
Cyber, ffs. The whole thing reads like a parody.
-arms race in cyber space
-ramping up of cyber defences
-hostile viruses which are being produced almost constantly
-national terrorist enemy
-breach Britain's online defence wall
-The threat is rising exponentially
-Russia and China are widely seen as the most aggressive world players
-Cyber criminals are thought to cost the world a trillion dollars annually
The last bit is my favourite, cos rather than just being a load of FUD, it's just idiotically wide of the mark.
-the least well-off who can't afford anti-virus software
Last time I checked, anyone who isn't completely gullible or ignorant managed to get by just fine without paying for anti-virus software.
ooo I don't know: about a trillion?
britain's online defence wall.
But, you know, CYBER
Massively baffled by the "take your virus protection off for ten minutes and your computer will be ruined" lot. Have never run AVG software in my life, have never had a problem.
It also hasn't stopped a lot of people I know getting ruined by malware / sketchy downloads / their own rampant stupidity, up to and including visiting www.freeporn.com
That's going to help.
zeros don't show up properly, huh?
Which reminds me. Who was gh0stpony?
(That was done in an online translator, and I'm finding it hard going to read back, even though I know what it says.)
Had to stare at it for a minute or so. Not sure about the Ph for f, might as well just use an F seeing as it's used the P from MP.
