@Glenn In the philipins they speak talago:)


Janne to me they sound 1/2 American and the other Asian when they speek English

They never call in the own language ...."say what ,who the "F" is this ,"Blah blah blah " click , no point talking if I can't understand them

My GF has lived in Manilla for a couple of years.
They do speak English almost everywhere. Even in small villages.
It's with a dialect of course but quite understandable

Don't get me wrong Janne but to get calls when my phone is unlisted and on the Do not call register really pee's me off

There niece people but my phone is personal and don't call unless I know you .

That pee's me off as well.
I think I have got about 20 calls from those scammers.
My GF also when she didn't even had a computer.
They get their list of phone numbers from international telecom operators that doesn't care about personal information.
Trust me. Been there. Didn't do it.

Well, that's one way to infect a lot of machines, infect a compiler - system library - linker - loader!
http://techcrunch.com/2015/09/21/apple-confirms-malware-infected-apps-found-and-removed-from-its-chinese-app-store/
a result of app developers being tricked into downloading a compromised version of Apple’s Xcode developer tool kit.

Source code review of apps won't find that attack vector! Millions of eyeballs, bypassed!

At least it is the Great Firewall's fault.

With all that the governments of the day have to deal with, they come up with these...

Adblocking a protection racket

...& to make it even funnier...

iPlayer loophole to be closed

...just when the freeze on the license fee ends this month, so expect a nice increase from next month!

Reminds me of George Soros back in 1992 when he destroyed the economy both in Britain and Sweden.
When asked why he said. "Because I could"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Soros#Currency_speculation
At that time they had computers with autonomous decision processes but today they are much more refined.

I just got a call from "Windows Department".
Again!!!
They, with a heavy indian english accent say, I have problem with my computer.

No one from Microsoft Support will contact you right out of the blue, not by Telephone, Email, Snail-mail, Chat or Twittər.
Microsoft also have a swedish office where the people speak swedish and don't contact you unless you have contacted them.
The fee is about 100 Euros per hour.

Even my GF had calls from them even though she doesn't own a computer!
