You make a very valid argument about the value of human life but my point is that those persecuted in Germany were German citizens so simply identify all those within the EU as equal and citizens of the EU does not protect them from persecution. That''s why we have the non EU ECHR to protect all members of society in the UK not just EU citizens. Your argument also makes all those without an EU passport second class which leads to immigration policy that is base on a two tier system.

I have tried to find a clear explanation of why free movement is so important to the EU, without success. The EU information online refers to post war ideals of allowing populations to live peacefully together within each other countries and to allow economies to grow by importing labour when needed and allowing it to flow back when a down turn hits. German Jews were German citizens and if a country wants workers why not let its elected government decide how it wants to support its economy.
Good Luck with Mobile at Intel
It is interesting how companies fail to arrive at their goal because of where they started from. Every design decision has baggage attached making anything that does not fit, importance of power consumption for example, difficult to deliver. A new boss helps but the inertia of all those involved is always a problem.
I worked for Murthy in Cambridge early in my career, an excellent boss and able to Lead and Manage. I remember our weekly review of the PERT charts with a mixture of dread and nostalgia.
Re: Bring back Clara!
It must have been a glitch in the Matrix, an agent is on the way.
It's not his first come back attempt. Backing band could do with a bit more practice though.
Sounds like a genuine act, not the normal publicity seeking crap
Re: Gated reverb is luvverly (especially with a bit of reverse)
Not just any gated reverb but an AMS RMX16, still selling for the price the cost new 30 years ago.
Wireless is about mobility not connectivity
Totally agree with you on the wireless bit having spent over ten years going to Wi-Fi Alliance meetings discussing how to make wi-fi more useful. Would always tell Mobile, STB and TV manufacturers that there were now guarantees with wireless, tended to get surprised looks as our competitors were always promising things they could never deliver.
May I also be the first to recommend a Raspberry Pi and Kodi aka XMBC, ethernet and CEC remote control interface, so no new remotes needed.
Had the full tour, including tunnels and pier, on a Brunel University engineering trip in 1984(ish). A memorable day and had a great guide, could have been the very same Bachelor. When asked about the extensive acoustic treatment of the backup generators we were told it was in consideration of the neighbours after 10 years of pile driving.
Re: Silly Question Time
The Hoover dam used chilled water pumped thorough it ensure the concrete set properly, it can get a bit warm in the desert.
Re: Does anybody remember eproms?
The first digital audio console, a Neve DSP1, was killed by one of the company's directors when he took a flash picture of it during its press launch, very embarrassing! An engineer was blamed for not covering the EPROM windows.
Ambisonics - before its time
A soundfield microphone records four (XYZW) channels and can be replayed in 3D with 8 or more speakers, in effect a phased array without the heavy signal processing. It's a great technology and sounds fantastic but never had any real money put behind it. If Atmos and DTS can justify this many speakers maybe ambisonics will get a come back along with all those other 70's acts, not yet guests of HMP.
Re: Actually, it's irrelevant for 90% of recorded music
The best setup I ever heard was an ambisonic array, 8 Kef 107 head units arranged in pairs; front, back, up and down and one very large sub woofer. The recordings were made on a Soundfield microphone in B format on 4 track reel to reel without any post processing. Ambisonics recreates sound pressures measured by a four capsule microphone time aligned to a single point to produce X, Y and Z direction and pressure W. Sadly not a very commercial proposition.
Earlier than that, Flanders and Swan were taking the piss in 1957,
Re: Nw for a spanner in the works..
This is not a new conclusion, less tech was used in the past but came up with the same conclusions. One interesting point made previously was that male nurses and female engineers displayed opposite results to those of their gender. It would appear that the gender of the body is less relevant than the 'gender' of the brain.
Re: Don't know about that
It does mean "no" but more of a question, 'no?' . I had an Indian colleague who although the lead architect insisted on requesting agreement at almost every sentence 'no?'. Tried to stop her doing it as it rather undermined her own arguments showing what appeared to be a lack of confidence 'no?'. It all comes down to the politeness of Indian society.
Last paragraph made me think of the old definition of an Engineer, someone who will design something that costs a 10p that any idiot could build for a £1.
This is, as usual, all about how well it is implemented, in the example the posters looked good but 3D objects jarred a bit as they look fake. If they use it in the same way US TV programs have animated ads for the following program, just as the current program reaches its climax/conclusion, will be very distracting. It will be interesting when this tech is combined with the face creation as featured in the Nvidia article.
Re: DLNA equivalent?
Miracast is based on a Wi-Fi Direct connection (it can be TDLA but no one is using it) so provide your Wi-Fi device supports concurrent mode Wi-Fi Direct you can simultaniously connect to your Access Point. The throughput might be an issue and if the video is using 5GHz and the AP is 2.4GHz yet another gotta is introduced.
In the quote form the committee it states a request to turn off Terrestrial broadcasts, Freesat is safe and we can all 'enjoy' the current 24 HD channels of Olympics in the future. I rarely watch broadcast media live, recording things to watch at my convenience on all those lovely Freesat channels. Moving the recorded media into the cloud means I would only stream when I need too watch something, the concept behind the rather late to the party, YouView. Anyone remember DVB-H, doomed from the start as watching anything broadcast whilst mobile is going to be interrupted by lots of inconvenient distractions, streaming video that you can pause and stop is always a better option.
Wireless is about mobility not connectivity
When ever wireless technology tries to replace a wire it will fail. If however it is there to make connecting up easier when we move about it will be successful. How many desktop machines have Wi-Fi? Not a lot, you can pay $3500 and get the number if you like from iSuppli. It has taken over 12 years for the 5GHz band to start to be used, it is called 80211a after all and now we are now discussing 802.11ad. Don't hold your breath waiting to buy a Wi-Gig dongle pair for less than $200.
Don't worry, I hear the RBS off-shored their software support to India without any problems.
Don't you mean "former Genesis frontman Peter Gabriel"
Must be just the Telegraph that still thinks its the 1970s
Freesat the forgotten bigger brother of Freeview
Or wait until it is on Freesat HD and get 5.1 digital audio
Does a gaming phone with wireless connnection to the TV make any sense?
CES saw lots of demos where a mobile device (phone or Tablet) was connected via Wi-Fi or WiGig to a TV. One reason, provided the latency can be issues can be fixed, is for gaming. Gets over the screen size problem (when the TV is available) but does it make any sens to a hard core or casual gamer? Answers on a post card. Oops just let slip that I am well past the typical gamer's age.
The Lives of Others
An excellent German film (sub titles but I am sure reading is not beyond this audience) showing the best and worst of the surveillance state.
It took until I was 46 but the glasses arrived in the end.
There will be no need for another Wi-Fi radio, the spec requires that a device can maintain a link an Access Point whilst also running as the group owner or member of a Wi-Fi Direct link.
Always a good way to make a judgement. In this case it would have been easier to land on the Moon than fake it in such a way that it would never ever be found out.
Glad I live in Wales
Only by half a mile but its enough
What is a Patent worth
The idea that the value of a patent is related to the income generated from its use in a particular product is perverse. Wi-Fi is a great success not because it uses OFDM modulation but because a lot of different companies agreed to promote and provide interoperability to a complete wireless solution. What did CSIRO contribute to the success of Wi-Fi, not a lot, so make any reward 'not a lot'.
£11 for a 27 year old film!!!!
No wonder Bit torrents are so popular
TV Licence Required
You need a license if you operate equipment capable of receiving broadcast so a Freeview or Virgin STB need a license. There was an issue for owners of black and white TVs who required a colour licence if they had a Sky box.
You will be very unlucky to get caught twice let alone three times
If the BPI are simply picking an IP address at random, it can't be methodical because there are millions sharing, then the chances of finding the same user sharing again are tinny, dynamic IP address anyone?
MPEG2 stream available with no DRM?
It's called Freeview and any number of DVR's will record this high quality MPEG2 steam. It is then just a matter of transferring the file (e.g. Twinrip) and off to the P2P bypass all the BBC's copyright 'issues'. DRM is just there to make the average users life more difficult it has and will never protect the content from unauthorized distribution (its not illegal!).
