Microsoft promises Windows 10 will mean two-factor auth for all

Mike Tyler
Facepalm

Interesting

This should be really funny in say shops, doctors, schools or anywhere with an industrial machine, atm, digital signage, there is an endless list of places it won't work and will be an interesting pain in the arse when say half your employees change their phone in a year or perhaps have an old non nfc iphone or perhaps one of the new ones that may or may not play nice with microsoft. Just how will the enterprise enroll not only a user but their phone.Hyy move to windows 10 increase your support costs and make sure nothing is recoverable when you lose your phone. Lets hope windows seven support stays around for a very long time.

Black-eyed Pies reel from BeagleBoard's $45 Linux micro blow

Mike Tyler
Meh

I quite liked the look of this, but it's just over the price barrier that I can justify a quick purchase. Yes it's only $10 more than a Pi but its nearly £60 delivered in the UK.

Nice to see some more devices at this level though.

Ten badass brainy computers from science fiction

Mike Tyler
Thumb Up

Worst computer

Perhaps the "Talky Toster" from Red Dwarf should get a mention, it's toasted bread products obsession was something to behold. I always thought of it as a Microsoft Product.

Re: Crap

Possibly not quite that much, but still a whole heap of money for a not very nice product.

Official: Britain staggers into double-dip recession doom

Mike Tyler

Re: Austerity?

Children may have been a past lifestyle choice, but not everyone knows how life will treat them. If we don't want children for the poor people, I can accept that, but make it clear that is what is wanted and what your are voting for.

It's a bit like the heath service, we don't really want older people to keep on going, it's a bit expensive. Cuts already apply, try and get some physio treatment over 70, "old dear won't neet to walk properly will she".

Nice to see your parents had a council provided home, just why should we pay for the old and infirm, if you object to paying for children to be properly fed and housed, people are people child, adult or older.

It's fine that education is now only for the wealthy, oh yes it is, covering up pockets of poor teaching in secondary schools by having tutors, paying for travel to colleges because the Sixth form is a bit poor, subsidising the young adults at university, we may as well give up on educating children at all

Sandi Toksvig puts the 'n' into cuts - on the Beeb

Mike Tyler

The Daily Mail!!

It's not as if she actually said the word, I don't suppose any children said "Daddy why is that joke funny" and needed it spelling out. The only people offended were those who had already seen the joke on "Mock the Week" and those who know the word and can spell it. As someone who works in the public sector, I think it's a fair comment. Let's face it the only reason Cameron and Clegg want to make sure the Pound is a strong currency is because they have so many of them. The Cuts are for them not for the man on the Clapham Omnibus

Paris Hilton

Creationism is the least of her problems

I don't care if she believes in ID and creationism, it's not a problem, stupid and misguided but not a problem.

That she is blessed in church against the action of witches, by someone who hounded a poor woman out of town as a witch is more than a bit of a problem.

I fully expect the president to declare Iran, home of the devil, evil and witches, and promptly go to war with Iraq probably in late October.

Palin could be in charge of nukula weapons, God (should he/she exist) help us.

Paris, 'cos at leash she knows she don't know.

US imposes 72 hour pre-reg for Visa waiver travellers

Liquid explosives, made in the toilet.

>>8 Englishmen were in a London court today for trying to destroy 7 planes headed >>TO America with explosives disguised as Lucazade

These were the no hopers that had a plan for a liquid explosive that would never have worked.

I still have yet to see / here about a liquid explosive that could pass for a soft drink in a plastic container, really explode rather than just burn, and have an undetectable plastic detonator. Maybe these things do exist, but a far as I can make out these were dangerous conspirators that whilst they had the will, were mostly just dangerous fantasists.

They might just as well have taken LUCOZADE for all the likely hood of it ever exploding.

Whilst conspiracy to commit these acts is bad and should be stopped / punished, I am sure the excitement about it, is to fan the flames of the Terror, so the Home Secretary can appear to be doing something about it, or maybe just have people look the other way whilst we are pissing our taxes and soldiers up the wall in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Paris because any liquid in her would be non explosive as well.

Well ...

Well I hope it's a reciprocal arrangement, that applies to all persons traveling to Europe from the USA. Including the CIA and the military. Won't bother me, I gave up going to the "Land of the Free" when they started to fingerprint all entrants and stopped being the "Land of the Free".

Controversial DNA profiling technique approved

Mike Tyler
Happy

Hmm

Often wondered if this technique for dna amplification could be used to take dna from some innocent, say one wacky home secretary and introduce it into a crime scene along with maybe a finger print from the same person. As they say neither DNA or fingerprints are ever wrong are they ?
