My workplace's BYOD policy is one word long.

There is already DNA on the moon.

The BBC notes that Apollo 11 left a bag of vomit behind, so someone's stomach cells are already up there.

Will it stay recording?

I would love to see photos taken by Philae during the next orbit of the comet, as a precursor to a mission to seed comets with their own system-wide science gubbins.

FUTURE ROBOTS will EXTERMINATE UK jobs – study

Mycho

Here we go again.

95% of historical jobs were eliminated by advances in technology. We don't have 95% unemployment, we have boybands and other tat instead.

All this study proves is that things in the future will be lamer.

Java autoupdate

Am I the only person for whom java's autoupdate has been borked for a while now? I just use it to alert me to new updates that I download manually, for the rare website that I actually allow to run things in java.

The real problem

Bandwidth gets significantly cheaper year on year, but taxes only go up.

Anyone remember when caps tended to be 1 gigabyte per month?

Boobquake?

To challenge assertations that skimpy clothing cause earthquakes, you will remember that a group of women organized over the internet to spend a day wearing skimpy clothing, during which time there was an earthquake.

If there is a case for prosecution under this law for such events, I point and laugh at this law.

Alternatively

Innocent person's phone gets stolen by criminal.

Criminal gets bagged for some other crime, because he's a criminal, they do crimes.

Phone gets taken as evidence.

Innocent person discovers theft.

Innocent person wipes their mobile, unaware that they are destroying evidence.

Everything is an innuendo

The problem is that people aren't willing to discuss sex openly so instead they hijack acceptable terms and turn them into sexual talk, ruining great works of literature for generations to follow who cannot avoid smirking every time Watson ejaculates at Holmes.

Re: Sock gnomes

I saw a theory once that socks slip into an alternate universe. The premise was that each universe attracts one item into itself from all others. Ours is, of course, attuned to collect hangers.

IT blokes: would you say that LEWD comment to a man? Then don't say it to a woman

Mycho

Turn it around

The title explicitly states that it's okay to be lewd and offensive toward women, as long as you're okay being lewd and offensive toward men too.

Please don't be lewd and offensive, mmkay?

The police are WRONG: Watching YouTube videos is NOT illegal

Mycho
Bronze badge

I sought out the audio

I heard people describing it as a British accent, but I wanted to know what kind of British accent.

Had I not found the audio I might have just played the video minimised. If it were illegal then having minimised it wouldn't be a defence.

Re: Irrelevant observation number 1:

The problem is that so many in-car gadgets cannot be used without turning your phone on.

This device would be wonderful if it was on a GPS with link to your choice of dashboard displays. Throw in a phone and get thee behind me.

Re: Insufficient data

As someone posting from a machine with MATLAB on it, the speed of MATLAB varies greatly based on how you're using it. If they're using a lot of MEX code then the speed is semi-realistic. If not, optimised CUDA code would probably bring the processing time down to a minute or two.
