    Softbank may actually be my most hated megacorp, not least because they often get to fly under the radar on a lot of shit. Blech.

    I thought it was interesting that they attempted to spin off the mobile portion, but couldn't.

    Just interesting to see what will happen to NVidia when the major share-holder is no longer in the US, if there are no similar protections required by the DOJ (lol), or FTC.

    Glad to know the american law enforcement structure is pants on head and proud of tiny fake "busts" at every level.

    Outside of small use cases for people who can't otherwise use a phone/computer I am still baffled anyone buys those things willingly.

    I like it for controlling my lights and stuff, checking the weather, and the wife and I play Jeopardy on it all the time. Also we got dots for my and my wife's office and we use the drop in feature to talk to one another. I know it has potential to be a huge security or privacy risk, but my phone and tablet are just as bad if not worse, and I use those so why not.

    We were made aware by Mr. Volodymyr of a server misconfiguration that potentially exposed order details, customer and shipping information. No other sensitive data such as credit card numbers or passwords was exposed.

    ...but they can bet their ass anyone with a port scanner or a Shodan account already exfiltrated all the data in there.

    Apple appears to be moving away from including chargers with their devices. Their argument is that if you buy a second Apple device but already have a charger, they're just producing unnecessary e-waste.

    This is enraging because I completely agree with them, but it also saves them millions of dollars. I guess the only thing that will make me happy is for them to include both a new charger and a prepaid envelope that will let you send back your new charger in exchange for a crisp twenty dollar bill.

    Well the shitty part is that they'll keep the price of their devices the same, sans charger, and then charge another $40 for the charger.

    I believe it's also an EU regulation that they cannot include a charger because of all the ewaste from unnecessary chargers being included in things. I agree it sucks in specific circumtances, but really.. how many things do you have with a USB port facing out? Also, they only put in basic chargers, never the fast chargers.. so at least now if you do need to pick one up you can get the good one.

    CBP are holding firm, saying that they believe the buds in question are still in infringment of the Airpods trademark.

    https://www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2020/9/14/21436760/us-customs-statement-oneplus-buds-seized-apple-airpod-trademarks

    It's certainly true that stylistic product designs can be trademarked (the "hourglass" coke bottle design being one of the most famous examples). However, IANA(T)L but the Airpods trademark filing doesn't appear to include any product design details.

    https://trademarks.justia.com/867/64/airpods-86764566.html

    It's also fairly obvious that there's no real attempt at "passing off" i.e. the legal test that a "person in a hurry" would confuse the two products at purchase.

    That's because CBP are assholes who can never ever be wrong and even daring to challenge them is tantamount to treason in their eyes.

    System fails to boot to Windows 10, boot media not detected.

    main drive is still detected by the BIOS

    corrupt boot sector?

    chances of being able to resolve this without hardware changes? I have recovery discs

    run a checkdisk to get those sectors marked as bad then repair your windows install, probably 90%+ chance it can be recovered

    Yeah, that's my conflict. I don't actually want another Apple charger, but I powerfully want them to owe me one.

    But if you go here

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10

    There is a Windows 10 Media Creation Tool you can download, it makes a USB stick a bootable usb with the windows 10 repair tools on it you can use to do the test.

    On the earbuds I'm very curious now if this is Customs doubling down on stupid, OR if this is apples shot across the bow of "we are running more than you know, do not mess with our IP or even come within sniffing" Is this basic murrica dumb, or is this the new cyberpunk dystopia megacorp dumb?

    Humanity was doomed the very instant it began existence.

    A co-worker of mine changed the PIN on their iPad because their young daughter was spending too much time with it.

    Said daughter then picked up the iPad and quickly worked out the old PIN wasn't working - but had a bright idea.

    "Hey Siri, can you tell me the new PIN number?"

    "I'm sorry, I don't know how to do that"

    "Siri, you're not being very helpful!"

    I just tried this and Siri actually says a relevant response. It isn’t, “I can’t do that Dave,” but they definitely gave it an answer.
