The truth on the Navy carrier debacle? Industry got away with murder

Re: I wrote to my MP about all this.

I agree completely that this sounds like serious fraud. If the MP's won't refer the matter how about that online petition thing they set up...? I think we've got enough techies and net-addicts to get some grass roots support for signatures going...?

Apple iPad Mini 8in tablet review

Stone Fox
WTF?

Re: "Cheap Android tablets feel like shit"

Strange, the two I've bought (for half the price of this, WITH HD screens) felt smooth, powerful and handled all the apps and games thrown at them... Not that I'm saying Apple kit doesn't, but I suspicion you of telling complete porkies about working with kit or ever having touched an android...

Oh, and while I'm in here moaning about fanbois, how can anyone really recommend a lowered spec'd alternative without HD (and that's a biggie!) for twice the price? It's a bloody tablet! IS there an affordable HD tablet in the ipad range? I'd quite like one. But can we get an impartial hack to review it please?

(An Ainovo and an Archos in case anyones wondering)

Solicitors from hell website unplugged by libel judge

Stone Fox
Facepalm

what did you expect?

The law society defended the lawyers, shock horror. Reminds me of when I complained to them about being ripped off by a lawyer - nothing happened.

He should file a complaint with the recently formed independent legal complaints service! A service formed BECAUSE the law society are famously protective of their own.

Facebook planking game claims its first victim

Stone Fox
Dead Vulture

Erm, yes actually.

I'm a little surprised that neither the author nor the commentards seem to be aware that this 'craze' swept the UK (the yanks as well I think) about 2 years ago under the name of "The lying down game"

It even featured as headline on Sky news at one point.

So yes, it could quite easily have been some pissed up chav from Stanwell or something. I've seen pics of ground crew "planking" in the intakes for 747 turbines at Heathrow etc...

STONERS are DESTROYING the PLANET

Stone Fox
Boffin

erm...

A quick check of the forums or related guides would tell you a couple of things - very few people use LED lights, they need a lot more work to be viable. Most people are switching from HID setups (e.g Metal Halides) to low power CFLs. Even with High Intensity Discharge light 1,000 watts per square metre would be REALLY high and cause potentially insurmountable heat issues

Sony wins subpoenas revealing visitors to PS3 jailbreaker site

Good call sir.

I will also be adding as many IP's to their data trawl as possible.

What's baffling me though is how Sony intend to track the video and jailbreak files across the torrent network? I just had a little look, and you can get the whole shebang - and it's well seeded!

Fear as motivator: why Intel acquired McAfee

Because amanfrommars actually made sense to me there....!

The other thing that makes sense is buying AMD CPU's the moment Intel start bundling a copy of McAfee with every chip. I do NOT want a slice on horrible bloatware that's murder to uninstall.

Futurologist warns of malevolent dust menace

Stone Fox

smart dust?

As believable as porcine aviation and pyschic octopus!

oh, wait....

But seriously, unless he's talking nano-swarms I suspect he's just pulled something clever sounding out of his arse!

And for a nano-swarm, to function it would need to maintain some form of swarm integrity as each individual nano-bot would only have a microscopic fraction of the swarms total memory (i.e. ability to actually store any info stolen) and a minuscule fraction of the transmitting equipment.

Desk fans anyone?

Damnit!

Beat me to it! Given that it's in Scotland, solar power is out but maybe wind turbines backed up by diesel genys? Using LEDs rather than HIDs would save power.

With any luck there's a nice underground river within easy tunneling distance, that way you get water and hydroelectric power!
