As more and more photos emerge of near empty restaurants and entertainment outlets, it's clear that governments are going to have to do something to help, even if it causes some political, even religious, dissatisfaction.

If you are issuing a notice about technology, the least you can do is make sure your own tech works when recipients click on a link in the notice.

Here's a moron of the first order. You want to sell us financial services and then you put a demonstrable lie front and centre in your pitch.

Thanks for the best laugh of the morning, you idiot. And yes, your IP address has been blocked from our entire server system.

It's being claimed as a victory for climate change activists but it's far, far more than that.

Testing is just that. It's not racing, it's not practice. It's one step before final shakedown. And it's one step up from running a highly sophisticated video game a.k.a. a simulator. Before the car arrives at the track, teams have buckets of data. Then, sometimes literally, the wheels come off.

You'd think that marketing people that make specific assertions in their material would ensure that those assertions are true.

Meet PapaWP which uses a .org address (it's not an "organisation" in the sense that .org addresses are supposed to represent). And that's not its only failure.

Russian criminals are offering a service of downloading entire websites and breaching the intellectual property rights of website content owners.

But that's not the only fascinating thing about the criminals' approach.

Some years ago, we asked a question : how come a new team with no track record can get sponsorship from major corporations when more established teams, with a track record, struggle?

Now, by a roundabout way, that question might be under investigation by anti-corruption authorities in several countries.

"We discovered that our data source was modified by an unauthorized agent" says the e-mail that purports to be from LinkedIn. But it isn't. And there's even a little hint at the end to prove it.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

CoNet Section: 

It's incredible how many spammers lie, even those who fill in a webform and have to pass bot-resistant tools to submit it. This one makes an amazing lie: that he found our own Group company details on Facebook. Well, we don't have any Facebook page so that's not true.

Even the completion of the formal parts of the form show dishonestly and a willingness to mislead. Not bright at all.
