An up-vote for the Little Mouse.
I was trying desperately to remember the name of that excellent short story by Asimov.
Sadly this is doomed simply, the telcos have enough money to ''acquire'' enough votes in the house of congress to destroy it.
Well, it will be money very well spent for them.
'' a small electrode placed above the atom.”
May I put this forward as the best understatement in 2015., well, so far?
Just an up vote for you sir!
I find it difficult to understand why, Asimov who wrote so much about robots, has not been mentioned yet.
Or is his idea of robots just too pro AI/robots?
"It will all come down to the endless battle between profits and principles."
What total rubbish, within Google their is no battle between profits and principles.
Profit won that battle a long time ago, principles today, are all well and truly dead and buried!
"They would immediately fall afoul of competition law."
Well, in Belgium it is all ready illegal to sell a locked phone!
That doesn't mean Apple & Google wouldn't get a special dispensation though.
An up vote for you Sir, as you are right.
Sadly though, they could well win with this sort of strategy.
Just think what the Daily Mail can make of this, "save the children," is right up their street.
You must know, everyone believes, every thing, that is printed in the Daily Mail.
Well, until recently I always thought English beer to be the best in the world, "Horndeen Special Brew" was always one of my favorites. I have tried more than a few others in several different countries over the last 30 years.
Now though, having arrived, and settled in Belgium by a rather roundabout route, I can now assure you all, that for pure choice, flavor, alcohol content, and sheer enjoyment, Belgium beers are the best in the world.
One might also note, the delightful glass that it is always, carefully served in, whatever the establishment that you may be in?
"How does that work then?"
A very good question indeed, I do so hope everyone can speak French fluently.
Otherwise every word written or spoken, from "Good morning" onwards will just have to be translated by an official translator, into all six languages.
Six months will soon pass.
They're all terrorist you know,
except thee and me,
but not too sure about thee lately.
Wongs or wrongs? But you are right, sadly so many governments and silly religions seem to think two wrongs do make a right.
I wonder is that just sad, or stupid as well?
Beer icon, well it's late, good night.
OK, OK, OK.
So, how many mice are needed to screw in a light bulb?
"Hardly seems to be a fair fight, eh? That is, if you believe lawmakers can be bought ..."
Well, well, well, don't you understand, this is the great American way in the great USA.
Government of the people, by the rich and powerful, for the rich and powerful.
It's simple enough, what is there not to understand, you just have to accept, and get used to it.
Now a big welcome home for Stephen Elop, that's mission accomplished in grand style.
Congratulations all round.
Er, isn't a "Back door" a "Security weakness".
Unless that is, it's firmly locked?
I am sure that more than one mother would find it useful.
An extra arm holding a fast moving stick, could well work wonders at bedtime!
An up-vote for you Sir, after about 6 lines, I skipped the rest.
Well you know, were that to happen, their might just be a knighthood for someone.
After all, saving all that funny old equipment, from those awful geeky people in that museum, must count as a service to the country.
"outsized nuclear arsenals remain in the United States and Russia, and the nuclear arsenals of some countries — notably India, Pakistan, and China — appear to be growing"
Did you actually forget to mention Israel, or are we all just not supposed to?
"...Wish I knew how to do italics and bold..."
Ha, Watson, it is clear schich has never actually learned to do basic HTML.
I therefor deduce he originally came from a small settlement in outer Mongolia, and is in fact the Yacks milk thief we have been searching for!
Yes,you are right, I lived with the cold war and the IRA, and close enough to hear the bangs, more than once.
Most of us survived both, and without all this shit that is going down now.
Just remember, " Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." and that was said by a Yank! "Benjamin Franklin"
What a bloody sad joke that seems to be today!
"Nothing is so strongly fortified that it cannot be taken by money."

Yes, so you are the culprit!
Lately I've been getting a few stakes that taste like dog poop.
An up-vote for you sir, as you are right, and as for.
"As every schoolboy knows, or used to know, you can even build an AM receiver that works with no batteries at all.)"
Been there, and did that, although the transmitter did need a battery, but otherwise nearly as simple.
Just start every comment with "In my honest opinion", or end with, "That is my honest opinion".
Perhaps you should use both, just to be sure?
We have absolutely nothing to hide, and as it is nothing, there is nothing for you to see. Goodby!
An up-vote for you Sir,
A regular old volcano, you are right, that's nix.
But a 40-kilometer-wide caldera, now that is talking climate change, yes!
"Be a Creator," then you too can be ripped off by us, even more than the general public, what a good idea.
The very best, and nearest thing Fox News has ever had to a accurate news program, well done Fox News!
"And stop the damn software phoning home every time it's used."
Easy, just install the old and simple program, "Privatefirewall" then choose which programs are allowed to access the internet or not. It works reliably, and as I said, "it's simple".
"These stupid assholes are making 9-11 more and more damaging to America every day, and giving Bin Laden the last laugh!"
So bloody stupid if you ask me, but then nobody will.
Fail! Frequency is 60Hz, but it's AC. therefor two pulses of light per cycle!
Even then, due to the glow persistence of most artificial lights being much longer than 0.01 second. This flicker generally only applies to florescent tube type of lighting.
Not so incredible, just rather sad, have those Yanks actually forgotten?
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Because there is a good chance that any large rock hitting the earths atmosphere can brake up. Giving a shotgun effect at ground level.
"Sounds like 80% of yanks are retarded; the other 20% seem ok."
Well don't feel bad about it, at least half of the countries in the EU. would struggle to do as good.
I should know, I've lived in several of them over the years.
Obama got it for at least trying to change the statuesque, and I think he honestly believed he could.
The problem was, with the lack of support, and the amount of $ involved, He never actually stood a bats chance in hell of succeeding.
Still two stupid guys fighting over fuck all!
"This collapse of the field also generates a radio pulse (build my first radio transmitter that way for Morse code)."
Yes I did likewise in the 1950s, and very successful it was too, apart from the bandwidth. Which seemed to covered just about all the HF & VHF. frequencies including those that were used for television.
As I was living in a residential area at the time, well, I'll say no more!
Well done, about time someone stated the obvious.
The world has been getting warmer on and off, since the middle of the last Ice Age, about 13 million years ago. Doubtless it will continue to do so until it reaches some, as yet unknown tipping point. Then it will start to cool down towards the next ice age, as it has many times before.
All the same, cleaning up our act a bit can't be a bad thing overall. How the "Greens" can honestly think it will really make much difference to the world climate, I do not know!
Yes you are quite right, 'He will soon be found to have committed suicide hanging from a tree in some little used back woods".
With his hands securely tied behind his back, after first having shot himself in the head, twice! End of story.
Now, you say you have beaten the time barrier, so well done. Now just tell me, who is going to win the 3:30 at Newbury tomorrow?
As you say 'Layering on the lipstick".
Now they just need to learn, however much lipstick you put on a pig, it's still a pig!
But they already have disappeared into a room, and come out with phone, well some of them have.
It's a Jolla phone with an OS known as Sailfish!
Have a look at IrfanView & Paint.Net.
Between the two of them you can do a lot, rather than use Adobe. Please remember they much appreciate donations.
AN up vote for you Sir, I agree entirely, 1 cm works well for me as well.
I've had my beard since the mid-60s. Sadly no longer gray, now almost pure white, mind you, it still seems to work!!!
If like me, you have had to deal with 'PayPal', you would be totally amazed at that payment.
Totally amazed that is, that they handed over even $3, never mind $3000.
"Investigators traced the attack on the banks to six computers in North Korea, which had accessed the banks’ networks more than 1,590 times since June 2012."
It's a good job someone had looked at those logs during the last 10 months, otherwise goodness knows what might have happened.
Yes yes! Now don't you worries, in Belgium nearly every town has a nice big almost new library.
The one thing they all have in common, is that they are all full of books, along with a few computers, but apart from the staff, virtually empty of people.
