How very sad :(
You forgot the magnetron, no microwave burritos without that ;)
I think all you naysayers don't realize just how bad Yahoo! has become. A high percentage of the "news" items on the page are now "sponsored", in other words clickbait advertising, and lot of the rest are just garbage. Near the top currently are two Brit. items torn from the Daily Mail but categorized as "U.S." news. One is about flytipping (we Americans are only familiar with cow tipping) and the other about girls school uniforms (ain't got many of those either). Yahoo! is already crap, but I guess at least we could maybe look forward to crap with better pictures if they join with the DM - but no pimple popping videos please.
CCTV, DNA, €600 worth of pot lol
All we have to go on here in the U.S. are mythical "Peak Horsepower" numbers. For instance, a typical workshop vac like the Bosch VAC090A is rated 9.5 Amps (at our puny 120 VAC = 1140 VA) but 6.5 Peak Horsepower.
VW was the only one to claim that their diesels didn't need urea/magic blue fluid injection to keep the nox in check. That claim never really passed the smell test (sorry) and should have been subject to more scrutiny when these vehicles were type tested.
...or use Adblock Plus.
what caused last week's spiking?
Wireless charging is sure to increase sales of tinfoil hats.
Posh handbag reviews, and car reviews that are 99% fluff and only 1% about the experience of driving the thing?
"The smart meters are built by the lowest bidder in China who could produce a document which said they were designed to IEC123-XYZ and built by an engineer who had a vague idea it meant to leave 2mm between power traces and the case but isn't sure."
My PG&E Smart Meter is from Landis and Gyr, they're Swiss in case you didn't know.
If that's what happened I don't understand how it took out 5,000 customers because the US/PG&E system only has a handful on customers on each 13 kV to 240 V transformer. My guess is that it was a higher voltage line fell onto the 13 kV one.
What you write about the stock market is only true if you spread your risk across multiple different stocks, there are any number of individual tech startup stocks you could have invested in and ended up with nothing.
Don't judge kickstarter by a single failure, there have been many projects that have concluded successfully.
At a fairly tender age I joined an amateur radio club in a city in the midlands. It was very educational, especially the one meeting a month devoted to showing porno films.
Leaded red and green for me, had all the gear sets too :)
See this article:
Takes all the fun of "Hi, do you have small nuts?" or "Hi, do you have large nipples?"
But the gallons are smaller, the octane rating is lower, and it's full of ethanol that rots your fuel system ;-)
New sub-contract with Foxconn?
AVON is German for telephone directory
AVON ist die Abkürzung für Amtliches Verzeichnis der Ortsnetzkennzahlen
Nowhere in the article does it say "Another company was hacked where users were registered using their yahoo email address and the same password as they use on Yahoo Mail."
Can you point to a statement by any responsible party saying that's what happened? If it did happen that way why are only Yahoo emails affected?
Yahoo needs to come clean and name the mystery third party.
Hey, we had sampling scopes back in the '60's, they were wonderful! You could twiddle the knobs and make the display look like anything you wanted LOL
Look back at the valley's history. This gargantuan monstrosity will be the world's largest white elephant in a few years when Apple is as irrelevant as 3Com, HP, and dozens of other former foundations of the local economy have become.
Damn, that's sad, what am I gonna read now ?
How much were they asking?
Yep, I had one too, it worked very well.
Requesting confidentiality for documents submitted in FCC requests is pretty much SOP. Look up just about any reg number off the sticker on a wireless device in the FCC database and it's very likely that the really interesting stuff (like the schematic) has been shielded by a confidentiality request.
that any jury of non experts could make a valid determination about a case involving "The present invention is directed to a method of determining branch metric values for branches of a trellis for a Viterbi-like detector. The method includes the step of selecting a branch metric function for each of the branches at a certain time index. The method also includes the step of applying the selected function to a plurality of time variant signal samples to determine the metric values."
"Google has just acquired Meraki" no they didn't, Cisco did.
I plead guilty to all of the above, plus electronic parts going back 40 years or more.
In a rare fit of cleanup I recycled half a dozen Linksys WRT54GS routers, keeping one for a DD-WRT firmware project, only to find a month later that I had dumped all the version 3's and 4's and kept a useless version 7.
Silent 700? Not remotely the same thing.
Is pachinko dead then?
"by which time Netflix will retain just over 8 million DVD rental customers. Slowly over time these will then shift to online, either with Netflix or with rivals"
DVD customers switch to online with Netflix? I don't see how that is likely. If you are subscribing to Netflix DVD's it's because you want to watch movies, and Netflix online has very few recent mainstream movies now. If you want to switch from watching movies to watching 20 year old BBC series (with poor video and sound quality) then maybe...
See http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/entertainmentnewsbuzz/2012/03/zynga-400-million-secondary-stock-offering.html from March - it wasn't just a simple stock sale by execs.
We don't need hackers when the white house is sure to leak the details before the election.
Professor Jim looks REALLY happy to see you.
Do people really pay 40 bucks for a dozen cupcakes ?
There have been so many horror stories about failed SAP installs that I don't understand how they stay in business. Even though SAP brought HP to its knees a few years ago http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/09/24/hp_saphell_over/ HP hires Apotheker from SAP, do they brainwash the customers or what?
Preferably by the balls.
What is the "driver's view of the road" test and how can the vehicle fail it?
Mr. Gonda could probably end up owning Slovakia if gets the right attorney.
According to Netcraft http://news.netcraft.com/archives/web_server_survey.html about 20% of webservers are IIS, pretty scary...
in the US of A, AT&T is spending my money running expensively produced ads trying to persuade me that they are doing a great job rolling out high speed internet connections and the government doesn't need to get involved.
Posted (slowly) from my expensive, highest speed available, AT&T, 768 kbit connection.

Respected Sir or Madam
May I crave your indulgence to open this business discussion through e-mail.
I am Mr.F. Williams Jones, and my uncle Mr. E. Williams Jones has recently passed away here in Nigeria after a long a fruitfull time on this earth. Although deeply saddened by his death the the family has been blessed to discover that he had $50M in 1,300 sudonymous accounts at the Creaky Mountain Bank in The United States of America in the great state of Colorado.
The family deperately needs this money to continue our plianthorpic work improving the standard of living of the Nigerian people. Howvere due to the excessive regulation and corruption here in Nigeria we would lose much of this money if we approache the govement to bring it to us.
So we are seeking partners to help us, we will reemburse you well for you gracious help. We would provide you the creedentials for one or moor (your choice) accounts, all we need you to do is empty the account and forward 50% of the balance by Western Union to acc 9776r418545y Lagos Nigeria.
Esteamed Sir or Madam, we hope for a positive reaction from you

"No demand" http://www.virtualization.info/2009/08/sony-explains-why-it-disabled-intel-vt.html
why can't you use it in those Merkin helicopters?
There's also an allegation related to the illegal gambling itself, the $566M is the combined proceeds from both activities.
"Why don't the powers that be just decree that from such-and-such a date all emergency comms equipment *will* be common and interoperable?"
Because, unlike the UK, the US doesn't have a government structure to do that. There's a whole bunch of "government" entities that the feds don't control, the states, the tribal (native american) entities, the counties, the cities, to name a few.
"Digital would be better"
Huh? It is digital, it's also analog, trunked etc. etc.
