Perhaps the USTR could show the Chinese how its done by cleaning up Ebay, which is every bit as bad as Taobao, or does ebay get a free pass because its American and can therefore do no wrong.
They are impossible to contact, ignore all efforts to report unsafe electrical items, to the point you cant even give them a reference to the relevant RAPEX alert to demonstrate they are unsafe and banned in the EU.
As an example: the Extra dangerous electrocute-o-daptor with lamp test feature., there are several RAPEX entry's for this one, this is one of them 1144/09: https://ec.europa.eu/consumers/consumers_safety/safety_products/rapex/alerts/main/index.cfm?event=main.notification&search_term=1144/09&exclude_search_term=0&search_year=2009 (its a pdf)
Here it is on ebay the first one i found: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal-International-World-Wide-Multi-Travel-Plug-Charger-Adapter-UK-3-Pin-EU-/262524545975
And here is a wonderful video from bigclivedotcom demonstrating its exciting lamp test feature :) https://youtu.be/hvOTiQKkQMo
So if the USTR would be so kind as to also add ebay to that shit list id be eternally grateful.
Why would you use a UK VPN provider? the whole point of them is to make it look like you're in the US so you get the good Netflix :P
Im curious though, where is the going to leave use after we get kicked out of the EU, what with all that hooha a while back with the US government having to cook up safe harbour and pinkie swear they werent going do bad things with EU citizens data.

To do a really good job of faking a recording it would also have to fake the 50Hz mains hum fluctuations so it appears to have been recorded at the appropriate time and date:
My memory of the Maxi is of horrible vinyl seats that if left parked in the summer sun would heat up to the point that a small child wearing shorts jumping in the back would find the sudden scorching plastic on flesh quite painful.
Better than the Austin Princess though, that just made you seasick.
Your video doesnt show a landrover either, more a landrover shaped dune buggy, without all the extra rollcage in that the roof would have been level with the bottom of the windows, landrovers are useless if you roll them:
I cant wait for the follow on lawsuit where Adobe sue apple for not having support for flash
Be careful what you wish for :P
Prst. V.Jeltz You can have a trawl through UK import tarriffs and codes and red tape here:
The WTO has something to do with it too, quite frankly it all seems a bit of a nightmare, those are the rates we charge for imports, no country on earth will let us charge for imports and not return the favour for our exports, so the governments of country X and Y will more or less both get their cut, it just means it will cost you more when you buy stuff.
Also if Europe were to decide British holiday makers needed a visa to enter Europe on holiday you'd have to pay for that too, but those nice Europeans would never do something like that to us just to be arsey.
I imagine somewhere in the bowels of the Spanish government someone is planning how to leverage this to get Gibraltar back.
Where in London can you have a high speed car chase?
Apparently the average traffic speed in London is about that of a running chicken:
Perhaps they could attach cameras to chickens and train them to run after cars, cheaper than a drone and you can eat them at the end of their service life.
"HTTPS is really, really slow"
Your doing it wrong
It will have a tiny positive SEO impact, if your clients care about such things you should perhaps have been looking at this already :)
Killing Time here is the SMETS2 smart meter technical specs draft:
I would draw your attention to section 5.5.7:
"ESME shall be capable of operating in Credit Mode and Prepayment Mode and of being remotely switched from one mode to the other."
And just above it section 5.5.6 Load Limiting, which to my eye seems a particularly weasel worded section, that I take to mean they can set a power usage threshold that if you exceed it they switch you off for a bit, now I know traditional meters have this feature too but that is at about 60 or 80 Amps when your main fuse blows, I doubt they will be so generous with this load limiting feature.
Something along the lines of "of course if you want to draw more than 3KW you'll have to pay for our premium electricity service"
Richard 12 atomic clocks were big once
Obviously this atomic gyroscope will be made like an hour glass so you just have to turn it over to make a new reading :)
I particularly like the way they are collecting information from the public about fraud, possibly including their name and address (i didnt progress through all the questions) and sending it back over http, if you try to use https you get an invalid certificate as the cert that is served is valid for about 90 other domains but not actionfrauds.
What a shower of shit.
TRT Its all well and good counting axles just dont do what the swiss did and hold the count in a single byte :P
Its like Top Trumps but you have to go to various physical locations to get the cards and other locations to play your cards against other players, sort of, to make a bad analogy to a vintage card game.
Im sure both windows RT tablet owners will be very upset by this.
Im not sure why your quoting revelations for google scanning images for early signs of sight loss, that quote is quite obviously a prescient description of the windows 10 upgrade and windows store.
But will it deploy with some sane defaults, or no password and world accessible?
Big John the unicode consortium were way ahead of you and you can sponsor a character:

This somewhat presupposes Governments make decisions based on scientific data.
I haven't seen any evidence this is the case in the UK.

Its not quite "space" archeology, but the UK airborne LIDAR dataset is close.
Here is stonehenge:
5. Though experiment: If we can have drones in the air why can't we have drone cars that get given to kids as xmas presents and share the roads with us? Oh wait, that'd be a terrible idea..
Theres this new project google is working on that nobody has heard about yet, Self driving cars!!! yeah i know crazy right, i heard they might even have some demo hardware in a few years time.
So not so much as a thought experiment, more they just aren't on sale yet, give it time and they will be.
If someone offered me that monstrosity of a stuffed chimp http://crappytaxidermy.com/ is the first place i would be contacting not the police.
Who the hell would pay money that? Id pay to have it taken away.
Lucky for them drones cant fly higher than 100m above the ground.
So does this mean Virgin media saw all those fake Microsoft Support phone calls, decided that was a good business model and started doing their own version?
PLA Unit 61398 are going to make a mint in bountys.
Clearance shouldn't be too hard for them as they already have the OPM database. :)
Richard Jones 1, one possible reason for the lower bids than face value is gift cards are into the more shady end of stuff being sold on ebay, with a not unreasonable chance it was a card purchased with stolen credit card details then being auctioned to launder the money, so i imagine there is a reduction in perceived value for it being potentially iffy.
Their paper states one of the items they tracked were auctions for a new “Bulova 18K Gold 95G07 Wrist Watch for Women.” which makes me wonder if they tracked any auctions that didn't scream someone cashing out credit cards, buying a gold watch from the online tat bazaar the only thing your likely to end up with is green stains on your wrist when the lacquer comes off the brass.
Because if they didn't they wouldn't get their cut of the money for all the fake microsoft support calls and sales spam calls.
Why on an expensive drone or fighter would would you use analogue video with cut and rotate encryption? Is their next plan to upgrade the system to replace the h-sync with a 4MHz burst?
Surely in the 20+ years since this was state of the art they would have managed to drag their drones into the digital telemetry era, even the crap consumer ones from china are doing video over wifi now.
If your relying on public transportation in the UK, your movement will already be severely restricted.
This OccupEye device has the whiff of half arsed internet-of-shit™ about it.
I wouldn't have been able to get any work done until i had fired up the sdr captured the transmissions, decoded the no doubt plaintext packet format and then bodged up something with an arduino and cheap chipcon radio to feed nonsense to the receivers. It would ruin my productivity.
everybody here, everybody gone, everybody here.......
If anyone has sniffed these devices do tell, id love to know if there is any security.
stackoverflow is going to end up getting blamed for everything :)
Its a ruse by the engineers at microsoft and sony to cover their arses when their networks inevitably slow to a crawl as everyone unwraps their new shiny console and tries to download the 6gigs of updates before they can play metalgearsofwarcraft 20
"One final technical point. If the technology actually worked as advertised, why isn't it being exploited by people who could make profit from it?"
I would hope that if you entered a weight of 64,000 tons it would pop up a warning that you are supposed to be trying to fly a plane not a battleship :)
Perhaps if they stopped installing malware on their machines they might sell a little better.
Thats a bit high brow for my tastes.
Colin Furze's 16ft high jet powered farting arse was much better :)
Nameless Dread i think the more important question is, what chipset do they use? Im hoping for Phison 2251-03 so i can put my own malware in it :)

You wont be running a datacenter with the electrical output though.
Peter 26 you mean like this, where the amazon xss was reported? :)
