Re: Well done guys, plenty of overtime coming up
I don't think that is a real problem, since this works at the Linux system call level.
Not bad going
Considering much worse economic conditions compared to 2006.
Re: Same shit new wrapping?
I think the only difference is they bundle the Dell Wyse app with it.
We could do with a time out
For the software guys to catch up
Yes, but it will take a lot longer. The charger supplied with the HP Chromebook 11 is 3A.
ITER is rendered obsolete...
This of all the e-waste!
Flash memory size
It seems like the size increase of flash memory in devices has stalled. I guess until they start doing the chip stacking thing in mass production he will have to wait. No way the Apple would ever put spinning rust inside an iPad!
Re: Just want big dumb panels
The big issue I see is you are stuck with some crappy old software in the smart TV that never gets upgraded and eventually becomes so outdated as to be useless. Maybe that is part of the strategy, forcing people to upgrade TVs more regularly to get the latest smart features, but that is very wasteful and the same can be achieved by plugging in a cheap HDMI dongle.
Re: TV Makers are Tech Neanderthalers
Actually I meant Magic Remote, the name slipped my mind for a sec.
Re: TV Makers are Tech Neanderthalers
Try and LG with a smart remote, it has few buttons and works like a Wii remote, that's the most interesting thing I've seen in TVs lately.
Re: Ceres is 26% water? Hmmm...
I think you misread, it was not Ceres that was 26% water, which is more massive than the "circumstellar disk" but has roughly the same amount of water. Or something.
No need to remove watermark
Just scramble it enough that it is unreadable.
All the ones I've used have old-fashioned resistive touchscreens.
Re: Tech skills- not so much
To be fair most people working for the EU have not had a real job before. I doubt the people writing farming regulations have ever worn wellies before.
Re: FB is just like my parents attic
Nah, it's probably not worth the bother, just delete it all.
The iPhone 5C would have been a sellout success
...if it were £300 cheaper.
Sideloading Play Store?
I hope it is possible...
Re: Why oh why
ARM also redesigned the 32-bit ISA for ARMv8. I suspect many apps will stick with 32-bit unless there's an advantage to going 64-bit.
Re: I guess the quesiton is how much control does ARM *have* over discoerability?
None really, although they could propose a standard and try to get their customers to adopt it.
I don't know why more computing like devices have user-assignable keys/buttons.
El Reg lives up to it's red top
Welcome to the gutter!
Obviously his first wife was just a beta.
What's the point of a microwave clock?
Pretty pointless feature if you ask me.
Re: Women are discriminated against
In case you haven't noticed, women are not a minority group.
Remove one of the screens, move the d-pad parallel to the face buttons and add another circle pad on the right and you would have the successor to the 3DS. Coming 2015!
I've never been a fan of the hinged DS, always found it quite awkward to use for any length of time. This design has plenty of space to grip with your hands (like the Game Boy).
Re: Operation Extinguish
Re: Unifying APT and RPM - citation? I haven't found anything suggesting this.
Which former Microsoftie is at Ubuntu?
Blocking isn't easy
Only way they could do this properly is looking at the Host: header in requests. Blocking by DNS or IP simply doesn't work.
How do you close it? There's no obvious way to do it.
Good style guide
I must admit I agree with pretty much all of it.
Re: 3D movable instructions next?
Check out YouTube, there are already video instructions for some Ikea stuff available.
No need to decrypt SSL
Eventually any encrypted connection that connects to an unencrypted endpoint will leak information. From what I understand of the XKeyscore system it works by cross-referencing this leaked information to identify who is using a VPN for example.
Re: It only just clicked
Another one I forgot is audio glitching, which was really bad on release but was mostly fixed in subsequent updates, but the sound quality from the headphone jack is very poor (more noticeable with high quality headphones, can hear electrical interference noise like early on-board PC audio).
Re: It only just clicked
There are several well-known build quality issues - screen lift (screen lifts up a few mm on left and creaks when pressed), temporary burn-in (visible "shadow" when switching to dark background), severe lagging when you run low on space due to cheap flash memory controller. When I first bought the Nexus 7 it was amazingly fast but now it lags like crazy all the time. Hoping that Asus fixed these issues with the new model.
These are concave, not convex.
And there's me thinking it means "pile of shit".
Re: "the Android Linux kernel"
Nope. The Android kernel is a fork.
Re: Big deal, I can get tech into girls ..
Sorry but vibrating dildos and "dongles" are objectifying men (they are an object that replaces the man). Not that I have any objection to objectification personally, but the feminists seem to be adamantly against it.
Re: Sounds sorta familiar...
Well no, he's not in an embassy and the Chinese govt have said they have no interested in extraditing him (yet).
Re: How are Apple (or Amazon) acting illigally
Exactly, but it is easier and more popular for politicians to blame the "evil" corporations for their own stupid tax system.
Re: So... how do you boot?
Coreboot hopefully. Please, no UEFI.
Re: Crime and Punishment
I think in many cases people would just be happy to have their property returned with maybe some compensation from the perpetrator. Prison is an obsolete system that doesn't work and costs far too much, and should be phased out for the majority of crimes. It should be reserved only for people who are a constant physical threat to life.
What the heck are they using ColdFusion for?
Should have been extended instead

Maybe they'll make Windows for Workgroups 8.11
