    Equifax fined £500,000 by ICO for 2017 security breach

    This IS a mild slap on the wrist. Not even, it's barely a "stern telling off". Thankfully new GDPR rules are a BIT better. $20m feels better, but still hardly much. 4% of annual revenue doesn't feel like a lot.
  3. Mobius, it's worth noting that Rich Woods has a colorful history of blurting out random words resulting in the appearance of sentences all but devoid of meaning. Why? Cuz the more words (and clicks) he strings together, the more he gets paid. The only trustworthy news reporting Rich Woods has recently done was embed a YouTube video of himself handling some gear (smartphone or tablet, not sure). Outside of that, his Microsoft and Windows related scribblings have always amounted to baseless jibberish (sometimes in direct contradiction with the sources he cites). Alas... Rich... rich... rich... sigh. THANK YOU I honestly don't bother reading his articles, but just look at the fixes and known issues lists. Then continue on to comments. Don't forget where he straight up told people not to update to the April Update and made it sound horrible. Like it would end the world if you did. Then when called out on it, he flat out lied and said he never said that when he pretty much based an entire article on it. Also has a thing for the word "finally".

    Question about pay (work)

    My manager is not able to control things like pay, that is strictly HR, now I can go to the HR manager and/or the site leader, weather it would do any good, I do not know, as I have not had any interactions with either of them.

    Question about pay (work)

    Take it to your manager. And if he is unable to do anything, ask your boss. If he can't do anything, call up Corporate and demand it. If they can't do it, then sue them... (suing won't lose your job, it will just get you the money you desire) HR can be stupid sometimes. They only see a small circle of the big picture.

    The Wileyfox Pro is back in stock

    I'm on android, and I really miss W10M To be fair the lack of 'daily driver' apps was getting to be a problem.

    Question about pay (work)

    Here is the issue: When I was working part time for Amazon I was paid $12.50 /hour and when I was offered to transfer to the full time location the transfer letter clearly stated that I would keep that rate. Fast forward to now and suddenly all of my checks have been paid at $12.00/hour, and when I brought this up to the HR department and I was told that if the letter said that then they have to honor it, and they were going to put the change in the system and I would get the corrected amount the next paycheck. Now today I checked my pay check, and again it is only at $12 /hour. I went to HR again and was told a different story: The part time facility pays higher per hour because it's only part time, and if you transfer from part time to full time then you go to the pay rate of that center (in this case $12 /hour). When I brought up that I have the letter that clearly says I would retain the $12.50, I was told "That was an error on whoever processed your transfer" regardless I feel that I am entitled to the $12.50 /hour as the letter clearly indicates. What should I do in this situation? Who should I speak to next?
  10. or you could just use the geforce experience instead of yet another app to do the same thing lol Using logic to prove a point, how dare you! haha

  12. U.K. government could introduce internet regulators as it considers “all options” by Paul Hill A new white paper suggests that the U.K. government will propose that a new regulatory body, or two, could be set up to deal with online regulations. While details of the proposals have come to light, the department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) has said it is not ready to share any information at this time and will publish the white paper in the winter. According to BuzzFeed News who shared details of the proposals, the regulator would be in charge of ensuring that social networks verify the age of their users, it’d also be responsible for ensuring social media platforms remove terrorist content and child abuse images. If websites refuse to comply, the regulator could levy fines and other punishments on offenders. A second new regulator could also be established that would restrict online advertisements for food and soft drink products that are high in salt, fat, or sugar – a 2015 World Health Organisation said that the U.K. had one of the highest levels of obesity in the European Union and Europe. The regulator would be accountable to parliament too according to the details. Discussing the proposals, a spokesperson for the government said: “This winter we will publish a White Paper, setting out new laws to tackle the full range of online harms and set clear responsibilities for tech companies to keep UK citizens safe. We are considering all options, including what legislation will be necessary and whether a regulator is needed.” Ofcom’s head, Sharon White, said that tech companies ought to be regulated in the same way as the mobile phone and broadband industries, saying that certain principles from broadcasting regulation could be relevant as lawmakers consider issues around online protection.

  13. You know this build is practically RTM when a message about the "October 2018 Windows Cumulative Update" fixes an issue pops up upon loading Edge for the first time. Yeah... that message wouldn't pop-up unless this build is practically RTM. (I have screenshot but won't share as to not violate the Insiders' terms.)

    Wow you people don't post much here. What happened?
  17. The task manager bugs would be a simple fix and not require a full rebuild and recompile of the OS... Meaning the fixes could be rolled into the build and also provided as an update for testers.* The real question is if there is any deeper bugs or not. * Microsoft does this all the time with slow releases that are a previous build, but have the fixes of newer fast release builds. I'm in the fast ring and I still have the issue.
  18. I think the audio is corrupted I can't understand what he is saying.
  19. You are right, but the bug with the Task Manager and the other last few issues might be simple enough to roll into the build and provide to testers as a simple update. Doesn't matter how they deliver the fixes. My point stands -- 17763 won't be the RTM build due to known bugs. A full build description is major.minor. If you are saying that 17763.1 isn't RTM, then don't just say 17763, since most people correctly interpret that as discussing only the major build version. It seems likely that 17763 will be the major build version of the RTM release.

  21. I for one appreciate the constant security updates. What is wrong with that? If they don't do anything people complain, if they do too much people complain, if they do just right then competition mock them!!!
