>only speculate money that you can afford to loose
as opposed to "only speculate money that you can afford to tighten"???
Re: Toys out of the pram...
No, I understand the concept very well. However, being a developer myself I can price the cost of development for an App. If someone spent months writing that App they are either not a good programmer or are very new to Objective C. I doubt the requirement catalog for the App even ran to one page.
And for what it's worth, there are similar apps in the store for $10-$30.
'you have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide'...
I challenged the last person who said this to me to hand over their ATM PIN, CVV2 code and passwords to their social media accounts.
Re: This is insane.
More importantly, what's to stop the paedophiles working in the government and GCHQ from accessing the emails and web traffic of innocent children???
Toys out of the pram...
Looks like the first party has been selling at over inflated prices for years and wants to continue doing so for many years to come.
However, $299 for a point and speech interface is taking the mickey too...
"Only suspected terrorists, paedophiles or serious criminals will be investigated," said the Home Secretary.
So their out is, everyone will be a suspected terrorist, paedophile or serious criminal. Until proven otherwise.
Re: Late entry ... Just saw it three days ago: Spielberg's "War Horse".
It's better to think of it as 'The Curse Of The War Horse'. Anyone (other than the original owner) who spent any amount of time with the horse died.
A Thousand Words...
Looks like this poll could be a bit premature. Critics are saying that Eddie Murphy's latest shitfest 'A Thousand Words' is the worst film ever made and looks set to sweep the Razzies this Sunday.
Re: I don't like it much
I found it quite easy. I downloaded it last Thursday and a day later I'd finished all levels at 3 stars each. Now the app's asking for another 99c to load in another stage.
Re: Oh, if we're looking for worst films ever
I watched The Crappening on TV a couple of weeks ago. I wish I hadn't. I put M Shyte Nyalaman in the same box of one-hit wonders which includes George Lucas and the Wackovski Brothers.
Re: A laser eye???
it's cheaper than getting an IMU, which would be the logical solution ;)
I just checked with the OS, they have a GNSS station in Inverness so you should be able to get a feed from there. However you need something a little beefier than DGPS (like MAX).
A laser eye???
Put a rotating laser on the top of the lawnmower and (at least) 3 prisms in strategic places and then triangulate of them.
Otherwise, stick a total station in 'track' mode, whack a 360 degree prism on the top of the lawnmower and have the local station continually relay the position back to the lawnmower.
Of course, neither of these solutions are any use on undulating terrain.
"your correspondent developed commercial software on a ... Psion MC400"
You have my sympathies. The OPL on the MC400 was a cut down version that didn't do justive to its former glory.
When the whole 'Kony' thing started I was thinking 'hang on- wasn't this news 10 years ago?"
ah, one of Barker and Milligan's finest moments
Re: theerty feeve meellion
I remember the old Not The Nine A Clock News sketch- 'Police today seized 10lbs of heroin estimated at £250,000. Which shows that the police pay 10 times more for drugs than the rest of us"
oh no, I got a down vote. I didn't realise that Rick Santorum read The Register.
Also, does anyone else remember when 'Monogamish' was a song by the Muppets?
...El Reg linked a Dan Savage site.
Surely you mean"source code".
The new Facial Recognition system is no better...
Went through Heathrow last night with my family and there was a major delay at the new facial recognition system. It took ages to capture and process the pictures and when it did, it got the results wrong- It recognised my wife as my 5 year old daughter and visa versa. Now why the original images where not attached to the boarding card, I don't know. Each card was scanned and then the picture taken. What the system should have done was match the 'front' and 'back' end pictures and returned a matching percentage, rather than searching through the database of all pictures taken and trying to find a match.
Still we had a great laugh about it with the immigration officer.
His laidback, languid delivery plus his cigarette reminded me of a 70s era Dave Allen.
Looks like the daughter got a new laptop and is posting on The Reg now.
"Despite the missed target, Groupon is predicted to make a profit of between $15m and $35m in the first quarter of 2012."
Predicted probably by the same analysts who got the last prediction wrong...
So you are saying that the downside of this is a return of jobs to the UK??? Oh no!!!
