    OT: Windows Phones now update OTA

    http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/...its-own-hands/

    Strong believer that BlackBerry needs to start updating direct to customers as well. Will reduce fragmentation and client frustration (as BlackBerry can fix problems faster without need for carrier testing).

    After a 'long' thinking about that argument, I believe it is better to get through the carriers because of the different radio files (which suits better?) and versions that there are for every device...

    Awesome! BlackBerry made the BlueBerry again: haven't seen one since the 7290! I had hoped the Passport would come in this but this will do just fine.

    Also OT, but fun as well. I just joined this channel to post this... pure geek fun in a hot minute.

    Facebook can track you even if you’re not registered, says Belgian data protection watchdog

    Global Hacking News: Facebook can track you even if you?re not registered,says Belgian data protection watchdog

    A Belgian privacy watchdog says that Facebook is flouting European privacy laws by tracking people without their consent, including those who have not even registered with the social networking site.

    The Belgian Privacy Protection Commission (CPVP/CBPL) launched the scathing attack after carrying out an investigation into the US tech giant’s practices. Preliminary recommendations were published on Friday.

    Facebook would not explain in detail how it uses the data it collects from individuals online and there are also problems with plug-ins, some of which can affect people who don’t even have a Facebook account, the commission said. One of the plug-ins under scrutiny was the ‘Like’ button.

    The social network, the commission noted, has the power to link the browsing habits of internet users to their interactions on the net and other personal data including medical information, and sexual or religious and political preferences.

    “Facebook tramples on European and Belgian privacy laws. Facebook has shown itself particularly miserly in giving precise answers,” said the data protection authority.

    It is “make or break time” for Facebook, the CBPL said, concluding that the giant treats the privacy of its users “without respect.”

    As a recommendation, the commission now insists that Facebook gets explicit consent from users and that its current measures are insufficient and not exempt under EU law.EU privacy laws state that prior consent must be obtained before performing tracking unless it is necessary either to connect to the service or deliver something specifically requested by the user.

    The watchdog also said that Facebook should only track users when they are logged in and not when logged out, and that the social network must use cookies that expire after a certain period of time.

    Users were also advised to install privacy software such as Ghostery or Disconnect browser extensions.

    In response, Facebook questioned the authority of the Belgian watchdog and said it was already regulated by Irish law, the site of its European headquarters.

    "Facebook is already regulated in Europe and complies with European data protection law, so the applicability of the CBPL's efforts are [sic] unclear," said a spokeswoman for the company.

    Ireland has come under fire from other EU states for its lax laws on data protection and corporate taxation designed to attract big multi-national companies.

    Although the Belgian data protection watchdog doesn’t have the power to fine Facebook it can initiate lawsuits if breaches in the law are found.

    The comments of the Belgian commission come at a time of growing mistrust in Europe over the practices of US technology companies and what they do with their users’ data.

    Facebook is also being investigated by the Dutch data protection agency and a pan European data protection working party under Article 29 of the European Commission, which may result in the establishment of an EU-wide data regulator.

    Some in the EU believe that US technology firms are too dominant, discourage European start-ups and jeopardize privacy laws, while in the US some reckon Europe is throwing up protectionist barriers to successful US technology companies.

    Steve Jobs never went to Stanford.

    He held no degrees whatsoever.

    That's so strange! I was, myself, at one time, a gay bowling alley manager! haha.

    Good show.

    Jobs may have held an honorary degree, sure. They gave him one so he could wear cap and gown when he spoke at a graduation.
    But he was only ever a student for a brief period in Oregon. Not Stanford. And he dropped out without earning a degree.

    Sure, we all knew that. But you said that 'he held no degree what so ever', which was not true.

    I think that studying for a degree provides one with indepth knowledge on a certain subject. So, if that's all one knows, then that would constitute a tunnel vision. But if one comes in with some depth on a broad range of subjects, getting a degree wouldn't narrow the view, but would add more depth in the subject of study. Just my penny.

    Fair enough. But an honorary degree, I think, hardly makes Stanford his alma mater.
