Yes, cloud is supposed to be flexible - for hosting (scale up, redundancy etc.) but not the whole contract! If this is dropped then the big players will just reduce their quotes, then after winning the contract will just ramp up price!

Seems that this does fix the 2 main problems with current solutions: security and encryption and a bit of smarts around power and band usage!
Here's hoping they help put these back into the open spec... (I know, who am I kidding, right? sigh)
We've used seconds for over a thousand years, now we know they are not quite right. So what does half the world do? Bury their head in the sand and say "change is scary and expensive".
We will care about this as a space-fairing species. Just a few seconds off on navigation to another planet could leave you stranded!
Would be useful if they integrated this into screens, allowed sections of it to be turned on and off by software and then turned it on over password fields only. Until then, meh!
Re: Toucan play
"Maybe make it interactive and personalised to recommend the user's recommendations? last purchase." +1 for that!
Gotta say I haven't though because "They are perfectly within their rights to sell what they want to sell I suppose." is totally incorrect as given how big Amazon are in most markets, this is the move of a monopoly.
Either way, I only had prime for the delivery and now they increased the price of that so they could add streaming "free" without supporting any of the devices I use - I have cancelled my prime.
"The Register can't help but wonder how many developers will take that advice to make design and test simpler, and forget to add security before they ship."
Not convinced that any dev using FB is going to be aware of security in the first place!
Re: Oracle licencing hassles
Yeah, quite a turnaround from where Sun started with Java - internet connected set top boxes and ideas about what would become the IoT. Thanks Oracle.
Re: Since when
If I had limits on my broadband, I wouldn't expect them to apply to only a single device - I can hook up as many as I like. So why should mobile data be any different?
Re: すし, 寿司, 鮨
Yeah, think the word Richard was looking for is sashimi...
Maybe we should call all animal products exactly what they are, may turn a lot of people into vegies
Did they mention bringing any of this to any of their older models? I've only faily recently got a RX-V675!
Re: I have to admit...
+1! Also some pills are absolutely huge, this could be used just to reduce the size of the bloody things!
Re: No Boats for larry!
He would (sue for compensation) if TTIP goes though... corps suing government over their decisions is one of the items on that agenda!
Re: Re:ain't got the grunt
This totally depends on what app you are using...
You can either mirror or cast (often app will just use the term cast though) - mirror is the same as android screen mirroring or chrome tab casting, cast is what youtube, netflix etc do.
Casting you can turn off the device, connect other devices as secondary remote controls and all that - mirroring requires your device on and connected at all times!
>There are native applications that can do a lot such as GIMP and LibreOffice
Also, not forgetting that the 2 main applications always stated for this (Adobe Photoshop and MS Office) are both moving to on-line SaS, with more and more functionality going onto the browser and cross-platform clients!
Doesn't GameStream only work with (recent) nVidia graphics cards?
Re: Comng up next...
Or the fact that playing an encoded file like mp3 involves decoding... Which is another "format shift" that they are gonna want paying for!
Re: Great Idea!
Exactly, I can't imagine banks encode in ASCII - so they probably use UTF-8 and can already accept emoji as passwords, how is this new??
Re: Anyone with experience of these?
An app can't wipe any data except it's own (unless you root your phone - which is not an option for most).
Re: Next FB can start using b3ta's "female or shemale" quizzes
Haven't checked out b3ta for aaaages! Donno what would be worse that or "moomilk or manmilk"!
Re: pissing away my taxes
lots of down-votes, but it does look like a load of US companies are complaining about another US company... and how much is this investigation going to cost the EU?
OK, if Google are convicted then the EU may get that cost back, but if they lose are they going to fine those that started it?
The correct way of doing this is to use sharing intents - you write the file to export to your internal app directory (only accessible by that app).
Then you given the receiver of the share intent the rights to read that file (see http://developer.android.com/reference/android/content/Intent.html#FLAG_GRANT_READ_URI_PERMISSION)
I would imagine that most of those bitcoins belong to the dealers, not the users.
Love the ability to stream to many different protocols. Wish all phone had this!
Re: What is their life-span?
People are doing these things! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lantern-one-device-free-data-from-space-forever is interesting although I would prefer something a little less "curated". Good times.
Re: That's fine and dandy but
Are you talking about your phone bill? This is not handled by Google, you would need to buy a dual SIM phone for that...
Yeah, THIS is why no-one is using phones for pay-by-bonk.
All involved have been to busy arguing how they deserve to be the ones skimming off of every transaction.
0.15 is better than the 0.8 or more for credit card payments - but it is still too high! (Also the article only says that is Apples fee - is more paid on top of that?)
Did their programmers think that by using port 443 they would be magically encrypted or something?
If you are using your own random port then it should be above 1024!
"I think we cannot allow modern forms of communication to be exempt from the ability, in extremism, with a warrant signed by the Home Secretary, to be exempt from being listened to."
If only that is what they wanted - I could get behind that as a law, only being able to monitor a specific person after having a warrant assigned by a court with enough reason to do so.
Unfortunately what they want is blanket surveillance of EVERY SINGLE PERSON 24/7/365! It makes me want to swear!
"showing that he is at least familiar with VPN tunnelling" - this show that he know NOTHING about VPNs - as a VPN would allow him to watch his Estonian TV from anywhere, whereas I think he is talking about sky cards that can decrypt all the paid channels...
Re: Dear Rupert
+1 For the removal of political bias from the rags!
The only problem is that when most people search on [engine] they are only searching for their points of view and the results they get will only reinforce that - esp with the personalisation of search results that we get now...
Re: Nice, but ...
As an Android owner, I have to say I like this feature!
It should be used for connected WIFI points also - no reason it cant remember which MAC was used for each, and reuse that one whenever it reconnects (probably - I can't say I know the WIFI protocol at that level...)
Re: Have been using this feature in Google Now
Now also works with all journeys too - quite useful when you have a meeting somewhere at a given time, Now will notify you that you should be leaving now to get there on time :-)
Little bit odd they had to give back their Brucies, you would have thought a bonus is paid for performance, so they shouldn't have got any in the first place - rather than as an expected part of pay?
Isn't that just an Android Intent?
+9000 (or I would if I could!)

"Google could have implemented Dalvik under the GPL but they chose not to."
I think Dalvik is open source (Apache License, Version 2.0)... https://github.com/android/platform_dalvik
Re: "Is there anything the wonder material can't do?"
Hopefully not for too much longer...
"receive the sounds they are going to play by a proprietary Sonos Wi-Fi network"
This may be a start, but the first thing that needs to happen is a standard so that all the gear can interoperate!
http://xkcd.com/927/ - standard XKCD reference for my own post!
I think MS was being singled out for being behind the curve for the fact that they are only now just modding their mobile OS for tablet (or phablet) use?
If 4g was ubiquitous and this had at least 1080p resolution, then this would work!
that is all.
Sounds kindda like http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/435742530/udoo-android-linux-arduino-in-a-tiny-single-board
I think this ARM version will be much more powerful!
Re: Now I'm running scared
No mention of Google here - I doubt the apps came from the Play store: "Kagawa and his associates are accused of using a wide variety of applications to spread the Android malware, Enesoluty, across third-party Android apps forums via 150 hosted domains."
Re: Typical government wonkery expecting ideas to drop in their laps for a fistful of dodgy notes.
err... did amanfrommars actually just make sense? And also get sarcasm!
Re: It’s called capitalism. We are proudly capitalistic. I’m not confused about this
You can't mix the two up, they are the same - laws are there to protect our moral standards!
As a society we think it is immoral to steal/hurt other people - that is why we have laws to protect us (from the immoral people).
If someone is following the law, but we think they are still being immoral that means that the law need to change to reflect our standards.
Re: Hurry up Valve..!!!!
I'm with the removal of all imperial!
Plus you can then report "Baumgartner jumped from an altitude of 29,455m (3195.032 ddb)" to start the transition from SI to Reg standards.
Re: 3% VAT
VAT is what consumers pay - not businesses. As a consumer in the UK we have to pay 20%. The businesses job is to pass this 20% on to the government where bought, so in this case Amazon will be giving that 20% direct to our government. This has nothing to do with Luxembourg.
The VAT on ebooks and not on books issue is annoying though.
Re: Will it have?
It does sound good, but as well as the points above it will also need to have a decent dev toolchain, all of their current and previous efforts have been awful!
