green electricity isn't the point...
We're taking emissions from the city centre to a point where they can be cleaned centrally, and where we can improve efficiency in big chunks, providing an instant boost to transport efficiency...
I can see child porn applications for this, but counterfeit shops can be dealt with by court order.
phishing sites are another nice target, but anyone on a largeish ISP will have already cached the DNS entries anyway.
copyright infringement? seriously, just strike it from the legislation if you don't recommend it...
"Loyalty" can be rewarded...
I pay very little for a great deal of comms - not because I'm loyal to my operator, but because their "retentions" department offer me a better deal than any operator can offer as a "starter" package.
I have no operator loyalty, but they are willing to make a decent offer to keep me as a customer then I'll take it.
And going to mars is something which has been helped by the ISS (in terms of studies on long term microgravity environments on the human body)
Waiting for this
to be put directly into phone, so they charge as you carry them down the street.
Good thing that humans are always perfectly symmetrical when walking.
Why did they feel the need to reflect her waist as well as her arm (which I can understand)
She has her weight on one hip, so her waist if offset to her right at the time the photo is taken. It's a pretty easy mistake, but one that should have been obvious to the people doing the edit. Are they really so focussed on individual pixels that they never look at the photo?
Quite possibly: http://www.psdisasters.com/
So can you stack these?
If it looks like a single dB, can you take one of your shards and replace it with another of these boxes and a handful of shard behind it?.
Rinse, repeat, recurse...
but your 3 hour process may well be significantly sped up...
The tech exists...
now can we please have it on an an expresscard, using the pcie lane available...
My wife's records at our local hospital already span two bulging folders (from just two pregnancies and fairly serious broken arm between them).
So whilst "an envelope" isn't enough - clearly the basic concept scales fairly easily. The only issue is if she trips over near another hospital...
I have a folding BT keyboard, with a control key - but the HTC senseUI conflicted with the latest BT drivers, so it can't support HID.
Installed cyanogenmod (other firmwares exist) and it's lovely. I have a very small laptop.
Icon? I even get an Escape key (even if it does require two buttons to be pushed)
For the heater
Although I agree in the UK it's a bit useless there are countries in the world where it can get a bit chilly overnight.
Being able to remotely start the car (albeit from 20 metres) could then be useful - the heater can have the car nicely defrosted by the time you've had coffee...
As for remote unlocking. I can easily see that being excellent for car pool schemes - lock the keys in the boot, remote unlock for the hirer.
Amazon, Apple, Google and Mickysoft will realise that preventing their competition from owning the domain is the best solution, and so will support the community version - of course, each would want a member on the board as well...
"should we ever build our three Arcs ready to ship us off to a better life I will make damn sure anyone who even remotely had a job in marketing or making adverts, is on the first one"
You do remember that after the first arc left the remaining population were wiped out by a rare disease due to unhygienic telephone handsets...
Correct1 above: "everything with the same shape will fall at the same rate" is incorrect
The air resistance will be the same, but the gravitational force (weight) will not be. Two 10cm spheres, one massing twice the other will not fall at the same rate though a viscous fluid. The more massive sphere will fall quicker, due to the air resistance being less significant as it is acting on a greater mass of object.
The string on the same page (which has therefore by definition been compromised)?
A public key also stored on the same page?
Why aren't the keys checked by a package manager (how most people install these things)? Why aren't they in some way securely distributed (DNSSEC hosted?)
Overloading the root servers is hard
even overloading just one of them is difficult.
It's actually quite a good system - although DNSSEC and DNSCurve could both claim a place for improvements...
I can barely recall
the last time I drive more than 80 miles in a day.
I used to have a nasty commute - 140 miles round trip. However I could have charged at work (or left an e-car at home and used a fossil burner)
Other than that commute - I took a road trip round America, but I hired a car for that...
Erm... Before that???
I know - I manage a bit more than that going to a retreat centre every so often - but I can hire a car for holidays on the savings made from driving battery powered the rest of the year and still have money over to buy the holiday (well I could have done, I tend to cycle rather alot now)
Exporting a list of words and adding as a new dictionary is so hard?
Wait, I've never tried to export from a MS dictionary - but it's got to be easy - surely...
Mavis Beacon teaches
Touch Typing, with additional thought control module...
kitchen cupboard material...
required, and must contain letters.
Can he sell them as development aids?
For iPhone developers to perfect their designs ;)
IP enabled thermostats (read temperature and regulate valve), thermometers (maybe in light switches, which could also be IP controllable) and boiler controls.
Of course the manual override still has to work, and you need power to the radiators, but that can't be insurmountable.
with a staple gun - having hitched their trousers to "Cowell" rather than "exhibitionist"
Overnight charging is possible - 50 miles to work is longer than the vast majority of people.
If you have parking at work then you might be able to charge during the day as well...
DNSSEC, and an SSLkey record type
Then we can forget about all of these dappy certificate issuing bodies and roll our own without warnings - the browser (or other application which wishes to communicate securely) can simply look up the required certificate via a secured sideband transmission.
If we want to get all clever about it then why not add DNSCurve to the list as well, encrypt the DNS queries as well...
I now have a BT keyboard connected, then I can case my phone easily, and have a full sized (95% of laptop) keyboard when I need it...
Mine's the one with a folding kb in the pocket...
Can anyone tell when they are in the 1%?
The rest of the HTC range will benefit from the slimmed down SenseUI
Tell your machine that when it sees this UUID device (For which you can sub a readable name) that is should run a certain program with parameters.
Preferably a program held on the PC, not the device, but it doesn't really matter if you trust your devices.
Such a system can't be that hard (udev?) for a behemoth like Micro$oft to wrap a pretty gui round for your granny to use. Backup drive manufacturers could even interface with it..
For Android 2.3.3 install cyanogenmod...
Other after market firmware versions are available...
It's not nearly as hard as I thought it would be (although I did get into a reboot loop once, it wasn't terminal)
So - where do you park during the day?
Why not charge up at work - where spaces are more reliable - 3 phase is probably available as well.
A reset to eliminate software issues before a hardware return.
Not every week - just when a customer is suggesting that their handset is broken.
Only if the containment was too large.
Nukes convert a miserly fraction of a percent of their mass into energy - an antimatter bomb would release it ALL. Of course it would release it mostly as Gamma, whereas a nuke releases large quantities of heat as well (due to the reaction of the remaining mass.
Print in wax
Then use in a lost wax casting.
Chrome plate the result...
Overkill for a one off entry (such as that required by the AA, or a thief)
You copied my pixels Waaa WaaaHaaaaa.....
Amazing - if they'd lifted the graphics then that it one thing, but to assert ownership over a pretty obvious shape, after all my chopping board is that shape.
the apple keyboard in there?
What we need to do is to have a standard DNS record for SSL keys.
With DNSSEC implemented you have a full trust relationship (to your DNS root provider), and there is no need to have these third party certificate signing authorities...
Read it again
A) Cyanogenmod (other aftermarket firmwares are available)
B) It's a server side fix (refusing the HTTP connection makes handsets try HTTPS)
Missed the point
Your job is still needed. The skills are still needed.
But you can't do much (other than planning) without some actual cable (optical or electrical or other yet to be discovered/invented) in the ground.
Digging a hole does not require networking knowledge, just a spade. Once they have laid conduits you're network hardware colleagues can simply come and blow the cables along...
it's been designed to detect pedestrians - Oh, wait. It hasn't.
So now BMW drivers will fly round corners safe in the knowledge that they'll only hit something squishy.
PS -Yes I read the speed limitation on the system.
PPS - Yes I realise that this is no different from many BMW/Audi drivers at the moment.
Aftermarket firmware is the only way to get upgrades in a timely fashion.
Carriers don't care - you're already paying
Manufacturers don't care - they want to sell you a new phone
Most vehicles aren't "Veteran" after just 24 journeys...
Although measured in miles, or fuel consumption it could be valid.
Now can we design the orbital vehicles we need?
Like a small crew vehicle, and separate cargo vessels - so that the crew is carrying less fuel, and can be further away from it...
is automated, so of course it will happen to car transporters...
I do hope that she has to pay for corrections to the spinal deformity she is undoubtedly cultivating.
"The hope is that this kind of modeling will help clinical research."
Is it just me who read that as meddling, not modelling?
And charities / community groups?
Will I still be able to throw up a cheap, easy, reliable, well featured service to support community groups?
I could break my Sony boycott for that...
Boycotted all things Sony (electronics) since the rootkit fiasco, but that clamshell look schweet
The abort system ignored the obvious method (the shuttle itself).
IIRC the latest theory is that the crew component of the shuttle went off on a graceful arc before a fatal collision with the sea.
"According to the Kerwin Report:
The findings are inconclusive. The impact of the crew compartment with the ocean surface was so violent that evidence of damage occurring in the seconds which followed the disintegration was masked. Our final conclusions are:
the cause of death of the Challenger astronauts cannot be positively determined;
the forces to which the crew were exposed during Orbiter breakup were probably not sufficient to cause death or serious injury; and
the crew possibly, but not certainly, lost consciousness in the seconds following Orbiter breakup due to in-flight loss of crew module pressure.
Some experts, including one of NASA's lead investigators, Robert Overmyer, believed most if not all of the crew were alive and possibly conscious during the entire descent until impact with the ocean."
