"So next time you're lost in the States, ask a policeman for directions, since being really, really good at multitasking while at the wheel is unlikely to be a valid defence."
No, just pull off the road and stop then check your gadgets.
Re: if true and these ebay accounts weren't dormant ebay sucks however
If only they would. Ebay never forgets user information, even when deleted ages ago.
Hooray for 5 Point...
Now lets work on a world-wide ban for Google Glass.
eight drives every second...etc
Please subtract the failed drives being returned.
Yes a warm bottle of coke carried on a long trek in the jungle ... deadlier than a land mine (apologies to Tom Paxton)
Isn't there enough junk orbiting the earth already?
...kindly enlighten me as to the difference between "unlimited" and "truly unlimited"???
Re: Am I out of touch? [guffaw]
As far as I'm concerned it's Windows 7 forever.
Re: Eye Spy with My Raspberry Pi
Don't you know, the PI itself is the loss leader. Buying a case, HDMI cable, power supply, USB hub, SD card etc. sets you back far more. I just had to have a mini-keyboard to go with my PI. Still compared with a full computer system it's cheap and much more fun.
Re: We here at the CRA . . .
What's the joke, Tom?
What did they eat while they were there? Food for thought?
Re: Actually.... the impact speed was...
Thank you Mr. Spock.
At first I thought the picture was of the leader of the girl gang.
Re: Shit power
Well at least something good has come from it.
"Ive seen many reports on cash theft and no reports of security upgrades since"
Not true. Canada has been issuing plastic $50 and $100 bills for a while now, and plans to issue plastic $20 bills soon. Very hard to counterfeit but they do melt if you're not careful.
Re: It shits me how everything is ever increasing profit, profit, profit.....
Thanks. You saved me the trouble of posting my own rant.
I visualize the ISS traveling through space with a stream of debris trailing behind. Periodic orbital shifts are required to get out of the path of their own junk.
The reason Seagate's revenues are down is that it is too busy replacing failed drives. I'm on my 4th 1TB drive, the first 3 having failed and been replaced under warranty.
"...either left without a functioning internet connection or unable to perform any actions in the McAfee Security Center console..."
So, how is an affected user supposed to download or apply the update that fixes it?

Are they still around? The ones I know are all seniors now.
Re: Where on earth are you getting your numbers from?
I've had RAM fail twice on me, once a long time ago and once quite recently, happily replaced under warranty. Your survey of one doesn't prove anything.
Re: Leap seconds: not a one-off unique event
Why not add 2 seconds so we can skip the next one?
Re: Holy crap, did I blink or something?
If you're still on v8 and happy, why not just stay with it?
Headline: Twitter tit runs dry, frenzied twitlets lash about in agony...
Glad I'm not the programmer responsible for that bug. Docking his/her pay at say $50K/year (assuming they make that much) would take 800 years to pay off.
What happened to IPv5 anyway? Things seem too rushed....
775 was the year the earth was scanned by the Borg and found not worth assimilating.
Re: The last thing we, the people, should do...
Yes the best course with such repulsive license terms is to decline to buy/use the product.
Microsoft knows how much we techies enjoy doing Windows Updates, so they've arranged to have it run continuously.
Re: Not quite on topic
May be something to do with the fact that they have 800 million active users.
(coat 'cause I'm not one of them.)
Re: Where to start?
Looks like a good application for that self-healing plastic:
A big thumbs down for getting me all excited .... then poof!
Re: Why a tiny SIM?
Why to implant in your brain of course. Isn't that handy?
