The Evil Internet, thwarted!

Recommended Posts

Interesting.     Last year, I bought one of those mobile phone endoscopes.  It works as well as £10 'scope would work, and today I had a job for it.  But I''d deleted the driver from my phone, to make room in memory.    No probs, download a QR reader.     I did, but on using it on the QR square in the leaflet that came with the scope, It took me to a Chinese stock seller.   Deleted.

Kaspersky offer a QR reader.  I know Kaspersky are tools of the Russian oligarchy, but they promise that it will remove rogue stuff.     And it does.  It contacts the same Chinese site and than deletes it!   So my 'scope is scrap, if I can't get a driver for it!   Oh, well,  experience is cheap, and so are mobile scopes.
