Funny, back in the days of dialing up a BBS, I'm pretty sure there was functionality in that which did essentially this and automatically tagged phone numbers.
I'd be interested to check it, but can I remember any of the terminal apps I used in the early 90s?!
Funny, that's exactly what I first thought!
I dont have a title dammit.
> Waldrop said. "It relies on these licensing agreements to ensure that implementations are done appropriately, and there are legal enforcement methods available for cases where it is done inappropriately."
Haha, yeah that'll work. he also says that no one would go to the expense of manufacturing chips to defeat this. Expect HDCP stripping boxes being rushed out of Asian plants for the Christmas season!
I dont have a subject!
> Oh and for the conspiracy theorists it ensures the government knows where you are and have been. But they do already!
Dont discount this. Do you really think they will collect all this data and only use it for charging for the distance covered?
Anyone else find the picture quite apt for an image on the modern day USA?
Badge. Gun. Flag.
"The man was arrested, and subsequently prohibited from visiting his home or seeing his children."
Presumed innocent, eh?
As a serious business user, I can say I dont think I've ever used R1C1 notation...
Is it party specific
While I am completely and utterly against this 'law', and the absolutely shocking way Labour has managed to bring it about, what are the views of the other parties? I haven't read what the Conservatives would do about it if they got into power.
I was going to goggle 'Extreme porn conservatives', but I suspect that would also land me in the clink!
In other words...
The EU want to put a device in each car that can help save our lives in a collision, and also handily report back to whoever wants to know the location of the car at any given point....
ID cards being issued with a couple of sim cards anyone?
Its last months news calling, they're asking for their story back...
Now if only there was a way of scaning a website for any nasties before you clicked on the link... Oh but wait, that would mess up poor webmasters log files....
Bah! Not True!!
I too have one of these machines, and I have to say I think its great. I bought mine from Harrods for £220 in the spring sale, no rubbish power converters here!
Yes, you need to pick up all the rubbish from your floor, but you have to do that before you vacuum normally.
Yes, you need to run it often for it to keep your carpet clean, however whats the problem, either schedule it or just click the clean button on your way out.
I couldn't live without it now, and its a damn sight cheaper than a cleaner!
Maybe you guys should go back to reviewing phones or random USB devices, as I think you've properly missed the mark on this one!
> I took a prostitute with me when I was going to date Michelle and it obviously didn't like the fact that the passenger seat was already taken.
Heh, classy! Does that work in real life? ;)
I bought the GTA4 PS3 pack, no problems with single player, but the game crashes at start up if I enable the internet...
Paris, because she wouldn't mind you bringing along an extra plaything!
> I remember one last year while standing outside of the Ship in Wardour St, but it wasn't a black VW, but a black Smart car with the camera mounted on top.
That wass probably one of the Congestion Charge vehicles that womble around London capturing all the number plates it sees.
As if the queues aren't long enough...
So it takes an hour to scan one plane full of people?!
Another reason not to go the USA.
Slowly But Surly..
I'm not sure I'd place the US and China together either, although the interesting thing is that it would seem that while China has its issues with human rights they are slowly getting better, whereas the USA is definitely slowly getting worse. Anyone want to wager when they will flip around? ;)
Maybe someone should knock up a website which simply parses the results of a query against MSN Live or Google.
Lets see what they do then...
Now what are the chances the same happens for Nintendo and their Wii points... (Even better, make them the same as the states and the rest of the world. Why do we pay 35% more for something that is electronically distributed form the very same servers... I mean WHY?!)
Why so few lines?
Personally I think its great Dell are offering any Linux, but why o why is it only on certain machines?! I would have been so happy to have Ubuntu on the laptop I just bought from them.
And to the kids who don't want Ubuntu for what ever reason, whats the problem? Just install over it, at least then you haven't paid the MS machine tax!
