Normal modus operandi around here.
Re: A future I see
This may be how the world as we know it comes to an end. No massive solar storm required.
@AC Re. @S4qFBxkFFg: Did you realise you put your password into the "Name" box? ;)
Actually its a great idea. It spares the nuisance of being told 'userid inot available' which can get tiresome after several tries. Click 'generate password', use the result as userid. Click again for a password. (Or not if you like to live dangerously.) Job done.
Reg should limit comments to 140 characters for a week. Let's see how many commentards go nuts. (One way to confirm the research.)
When successful, will they replace the IBM CEO and board with them?
Does that mean they are planning to make 1,000,000,000 (or more) batteries? Or that it will be the size of 1,000,000,000 normal factories? Or perhaps some imaginative PR's use of hyperbole?
My Netbook is a complete system with Windows license and cost $100 less. (Yes I still have one, it works and I still use it!)
Legalese is hard enough to understand without the spelling mistakes and bad grammar.
So, Mulally is going to be the driverless car's chief tester?
Microsoft sees a disaster on the horizon and wants to be ready?
Perhaps the posts should link back to the previous article too.
So, for a fraction of the homeland security budget they can get rid of tornadoes? Sounds like a win-win.
"...tough to fit in a pocket..."
Doesn't anyone make clothes with larger pockets for today's gadgets? If not there's an opportunity waiting.
I find it hard to imagine having thousands of important files on my computer and no backup. It simply boggles the mind. But then, smart enough to have backup is smart enough to avoid scamware.
Why don't they do something useful with their spare cycles like distributed computing (BOINC)? That's what I do on my computers at home.
Re: Whatever next? Direct Fibre Channel connections?
Ah but then they wouldn't be able to sell you new hardware every year.
Tinfoil hat time
Tape over your microphone as well as your camera lens.
Re: It would appear
Actually that's easy .... have a secret password that you have to enter every 10 minutes, or kaboom!
Why don't those companies hire security specialists before they are hacked? At least put a lock on the front door.
Are you the same fellow that was there the week before and left the floppy in the drive?
Re: re. mirror
Sounds like a perfect application for ununseptium (element 117).
Canadian spooks are ready willing and able to grab the data too.
The video clearly shows a swarm of extraterrestrial creatures attacking the lens of the camera.
World + dog comes down hard on Toyota's recalls.
It's heartwarming to see them working so hard at solving the world's pressing problems.
"...won't omit a single atom of carbon..."
No people in there then?
Good old Google
Always looking for more ways to spy on us.
I hope they fall off and get run over by a truck.
Code checking is a real drudge job and no one likes doing it. And if you don't have a concise specification it is nearly impossible.
The steps for writing quality code are
1. Write a spec
2. Write a test plan based on the spec
3. Write the code
4. Conduct a code review
5. Unit test the code.
I wonder how many of those steps were followed in this case?
to scrub the kitchen floor and take out the garbage.
There must be 10 billion usb devices kicking around by now. Its about time they redesigned it making them all obsolete, forcing us to throw them away and buy new ones.
...bought by eBay in 2005....
The bugs were free.
Re. The "invention" is already for sale.
As soon as the patent is granted Apple will sue them into oblivion.
Re: 3 per cent?
The Canadian Government got rid of paper $1 and $2 bills some time ago and replaced them with large coins. Now my pants won't stay up.
Sounds like an interesting course. Where can I sign up?
Re: Sprint have missed a trick here...
To take your idea a step further, the NSA should start its own telecom company with attractive rates. They could then cut out those pesky middlemen and get direct access to their targets.
Will the social media regulator have their own facebook and twitter accounts?
How about a 5 percent pay cut while they're at it?
Re: Yes stop fiddling teens
The real reason they do it is to look like they're busy texting friends.
Re: Just try
How do I change the password on my Fridge? Just askin'.....
What difference does it make? We can be safe to assume the spooks are into everything.
What does Apple pay their lawyers?
I don't hear them whinging about that. And it must be plenty.

Now that ala has been used on the internet it will be added to English soon.

That's a lot of bottles of vodka.
I sleep much better now that NEOWISE is on the job keeping us safe.
Re: Cue lots of pictures appearing on the internet

Re: It's ALL drivel on Farcebook
Yes where's the DISLIKE FACEBOOK button?
Re: Why is this even news?
