I bought a Dyson - wouldn't get another one...
I've got one already.
What if you don't have a mobile?
How will this work if you don't have a mobile but do have a laptop or tablet with WiFi only (i.e. No SIM)?
(Possibly unlikely scenario, but if you rely on VOIP or Skype-type services then is feasible)
Re: @Don Jefe
If Monday's closing price was $62.88, and he still holds Facebook shares, then I doubt that he is nursing any losses from the IPO ($38?).....
Re: Great terminology!
Or indeed in the comments here:
Not really - the reference was already made a few days back...
Re: Getting to be a millionaire
I think you can only define yourself as a milllionaire if you have >= £1m of liquid assets.
You can't really count your primary residence or car in that total....
Re: Makes sense
I think you may have hit a roar nerve there...
Re: And pray that nobody used a web admin interface
Oracle published OpenSSL Security Bug-Heartbleed (Doc ID 1645479.1) yesterday
Backlit dust devil?
I thought it could be a backlit dust devil when looking at the enlargement, but the fact it is not in the other stereo image would seem to rule that out.
Re: PCI is a bandaid for the real problem
You mean like the Barclays PINSentry for example?
Re: The Beano did it years ago.
Really? Even the Bash Street Kids drew the line at drugs...
How can a US court compel a (now-defunct) Japanese firm to do anything...?
Not really. GAAP is about ensuring external stakeholder reporting in a consistent way, and IFRS about doing so internationally.
Internal management accounts can be prepared in any way that the management want to manage the business (although the auditors of a large enough concern may also have a say)
Classic Shell is way cheaper than another copy of Windows 7 and works a treat....

Didn't Ratzinger un-Pope himself (or was the reference to him writing this when he was
Re: a mound of spare parts to use?
I believe that the USD 900m write-off related to the Surface RT rather than the Pro, but you could well be right on the reuse of Surface 1 Pro parts inventory in the Surfave Pro 2.
The price of the Surface 1 Pro has not budged that much since the new one was released, but I imagine that is retailers not wanting to take the hit.
Isn't a soldier EXACTLY the sort of person to be aware of what a grenade can do, so to pack one in luggage is inexcusable...?
How do you make a mistake and pack a grenade for a flight - I'm pretty sure the US military hand them out to their personnel when they get to the war?
Re: Isn't this illegal? @ Rob Fisher
"You can't fire someone just because you don't want them to work for you any more, irrespective of the reason."
Actually you can in the UK - if they have worked for you for < 2 years.
Re: To teleport, in theory..
"then the blood in your legs will be spraying everywhere because your upper body has disappeared"
Probably not, since the pumping mechanism will have disappeared with your upper body....
Still going to be messy though.
Re: Re. Martian evolution
However, life never having got going due to a harsh environment would also fit the evidence, and explain a lot too....
It's the Sorting Hat
I thought "Sorting Hat" from Harry Potter.....
It was a startup in 2006.......
It was a startup in 2006, but it's surely not still one now...?
(Unless start-up = not been bought out yet)
"It is expected to create 29 new jobs"
Only 29 jobs for $20m in tax breaks?
Re: Who mentioned Windows?
No - he is actually the Linux fundamentalist, usr-bin-local...
Re: Beats vs. BeyerDynamic
Not sure that anyone would master on headphones though.........
Re: Stop the FUD
..and rather amusingly some of Oracle's own software (in full current support) needs earlier versions of Java to work (Essbase Admin Console - I'm looking at you...)
Search for quadcopter and/or LIDAR on YouTube and you'll be amazed at what is being done on this field.
Re: An admirable admiral
The amused observation about the real bug is actually there in the handwritten notes in the article....
Re: Easily confused...
Probably deliberately vague on The Register's part since repeating such information in any detail may itself constitute libel.....
What about Addins?
How would Office365 work with Addins (e.g. in an Enterprise scenario) if nothing is permanently installed to your PC?
There are many ERP/EPM solutions that integrate Excel/Office with back-end systems (SAP/Oracle/Hyperion etc.) - if your installation is piped out of the cloud (and maintained/patched there), then presumably it won't.
(To be fair, Oracle were pretty slow getting 2010 support out there...)
I imagine this would be resolved by a split implementation of Office 365/2013 if corporates were going to take the bait. Having said that, a lot of corporates (in my experience) who have only just started rolling out Office 2010 anyway..
Re: Cleaning Crew
Not sure if this was meant in jest, but:
* Spirit and Opportunity are on opposite sides of Mars so are thousands of miles apart - you couldn't do both
* Why send a new probe to the same place as an old one to clean it up? That would be a bit redundant surely?
* Even if you did, the odds of landing sufficiently near an existing probe would be fairly low, since they would want to ensure that any new probe did not have a risk of landing on the old one (and breaking both) or damaging it with the rocket blast/debris on landing so would choose an expected landing radius far away anyway
Re: Change the f*cking record @Eadon
I have not pinned my colours to any mast in any posts here.
Where in my post does it imply I am anti-Linux or pro-MS or any other technology?
Re: Change the f*cking record
Because every post you make simply becomes an anti-Microsoft rant - and it is becoming a little tiresome.
Change the f*cking record
Change the f*cking record will you?
Oh wait - I'm a shill.
Re: all in all just another brick in the wall
As mentioned above, metadata can be stripped easily. How about Steganographic incorporation of metadata- as long as it can survive image decompression or scaling?
JAM (Just a Minute), surely?
It is a re-test of lithobraking technology
It's just a re-test of the lithobraking technology already used by Beagle 2, Mars Polar Lander and others....
Old, but a fitting tribute
This has been round a while, but I think it says it all, or something
What about Oxford Circus?
I looked for directions from Holborn tube to Oxford Circus on Apple Maps.
I now know that there is a Circus centre outside Oxford. Bit far to walk and not what I was after...
No mention of the more proximate alternative at all.
Re: Free but rich

Very, very frightening?
Re: Some actual numbers
Density of air: 870 kg/m³?
That explains it - I thought I was a bit under pressure currently......
What about the Portsmouth Sinfonia?
Has she tried conatcting the Portsmouth Sinfonia?
Flash UIs - Pots & Kettles, Larry!
Oracle have only just started retiring their awful Flash-based UI for their Support site so presumably Larry knows what he is on about....
Re: Workable form of mass electricity storage
Surely it is cheaper NOT to buy new vehicles (whether EV or not) but rather use or repair/maintain used ones as far as possible as the emissions involved in their creation have already been incurred?
