5x00 General discussions / Known "Sync Options" problems??
« on: June 11, 2004, 03:07:27 am »
Templar i did what u suggested and it fixed all of my problems, I then patched it fully and still works fine, so must be something else breakign it...

btw i have lots of trouble accessing owa in opera 6 as i cant access the far right window

yeah calendaring is a bit of a pain, but i use intellisync and the standard calendar to keep that and my tasks up to date... if someone updates my caldendar out of hours and don\'t send me a mail warning then they\'ll just have to wait till i get home (OWA) or till the next day for me to deal with it..  btw i wanted open exchange, but the powers that be wanted something that they could pay lots of money for (i don\'t understand business people i thought the less u spend for the same facilities the better the model... most of them kept bringing up tco like a mantra, but had no idea wha tthe cost of either system would be, i hate dealing with it managers armed with tit bits of knowlegde from a sales brochure, lots of abbreviations and acronyms)

bah any cryptograher would tell u its the protocol not the algorithm that counts eg WEP
i think the thing people are missing is that a good deal of people live in the \"free\" world where we get to choose what products we wish to spend our hard earned nuggets on. M$ been spending ages trying to force people to use their products, for instance the reaction from the dvd forum in regards to WMA being included in the standard? one thing to keep in mind all of the big service providers want u and other providers to use their products, and no one wants to pay M$ more royalites.  the content providers would most prbly go for the service provider with the most largest customer base...  
anyway if u live in a place like china u would go for the pirated version if u didnt want to spend a years wages on a copy of photoshop...

Another example is DVD regioning, which is part of the industry standard, what most people do is buy a region free player, bye bye restrictions
To produce a working DRM system is a very hard thing, because u don\'t want to scare away the consumer with the copyright protection mechanism (protect your content, but can\'t sell it, is more worthless then unprotected content, since at least the unprotected stuff is getting public exposure), althro I can\'t understand RIAA\'s methods at all...

magic gate was \"developed, to enforce \"copy protection schemes\" with portable music players high on the list.\" but it doesn\'t work if I refuse to use sony\'s format and their current devices play mp3s and eq i use doesnt use the mg functionality then all mg means is i pay a little extra for my media.  end of the day for CE products its the consumer that counts if a product is so restrictive then people tend to not buy the product.  this knee jerk reaction to drm is the same as riaa knee jerk reaction to p2p.  
\" DRM code is always closed source; if the DRM code was open, then people could easily hack their way around the encryption, and it\'d be useless.\" - you wanna give schneider and all of the other open source crypto gurus a lesson here? i do believe twofish came 2nd place in the AES competition...
dvd is closed source all that was needed for that to be broken was some person to \"accidently\" publish the keys on their web site...
closed source argument about security to me equals ostrich head in the sand technique...

hoohoo i love it, i wish i had a clamshell so i could have a go... can\'t fork out on a clamshell atm, got to save up for a holiday with the gf... sniffle... althro she is as bad as i am when it comes to gadgets....
didnt someone already spray their z black, i remember a sexy bit of kit sitting in a car on this forum somewhere
on the point of geekyness, don\'t go for the eholster, if u buy the largest pda case it doesnt fit with a cf card in it, and if u are brave and decide to chop a whole in one end, the material is made from nylon stuck onto some sticky foamy stuff so its hard to make it neat.
also since the holsters are horizontal, u need one deep chest to be able to conceal it, all in all i was really disapointed... hmmm should i send in pictures... {disclaimer - I don\'t have one \'onest guv!}

oh and to bypass the online decoding mechanism all u need is one person to pay, rip it and release it. already been happening for years, not that I agree with it (for the benefit of any enforcement officer wanting to skin a monkey...)

u should try to not get the physical media confused with the electronic content, for example with DVDs the content is a protected format, but the disk itself can be used to store a non protected content. which is bascially what cresho said.  but do we need to avoid protected formats?  those of u watching DVDs on your PC without a licensed player are not avoiding a protected format, but are bypassing any DRM.  With encoded formats with built in DRM all you need is a knobbled codec, or a player with the mechanism crippled.  there will always be someone who will break any \"DRM\" mechanism, hardware or software based... given enough time and incentive, I\'ve always thought there are 3 main incentives, \"want to show the world how great they are\", \"want to annoy the big \'capitalist\' corps\" and the good ol\' \"want to make a quick buck\"...
On the point about dodgy players, who here actually trusts that mediaplayer 9, realplayer doesn\'t send info or what u are watching to big brother?  media player classic and bsplayer all the way for me pls...
On the issue of DRM I personally feel there is nothing wrong with it as long as its implemented in the right way, for instance those audio CDs which only work in certain devices (and not advertised as such, but so easy to get around) certainly is the wrong way
enforcing DR... the RIAA - how wrong can they be way, but iTunes is a step in the right direction!

something like netsend in windoze?

I use imap to check my exchange mail then i can leave my mail on the server and not take up precious resources...
