They shouldn't be submitting work electronically unless its multimedia based, idle teachers will be producing a generation of people who can't write.
Re: Only 30% a week?
Just the way the tech press works, anything MS does sucks while apple could release an iphone that sets peoples hands on fire and they would lawd it as a new hand warming system.
I attended a talk a couple of months ago given by the guy who spearheaded early xbox development, he said the sad fact was most of the team were men simply because women didn't apply.
You can't fix the problem with 'affirmative action', that's simply reverse racism/sexism where the best person for job is excluded because they don't meet your quota.
You can trust benchmarks about as far as you can fart them; Various big names have been caught adding routines specifically to generate fake results to popular benchmarks.
I think most windows users are sane enough not to even consider an apple watch, a pointless vanity object.
Microsoft....working hard to screw up your system, when a BSOD just isn't good enough.
That casing looks the same as the low end Panasonic 4k screen, except the Panasonic supports HEVC for Netflix 4k and it uses active 3d.
The nVidia 970/980 cards are supposed to have HDMI 2.0 out.
Re: Failure on a practical but also a political level
Hopefully BT will be punished when one of the low orbit grids comes online, i live about 50 meters outside Glasgow boundary...the biggest city in Scotland, and there's no BT fibre in my area.
If you choose to live in the arse end of nowhere then you run the risk of poor services. Elon Musks plan for a low orbit satellite grid should solve the problem.
It doesn't matter that facial recognition has been around for ages, all Apple has to do is file in US patent office and prepare a Californian judge to back it up.
Re: Tempting for devs?
It gives you a 'cheap' entry point for dev work; it also gives you full access to the IOS app/game ecosystem but allows you to keep your old phone which is very likely to be a hell of a lot cheaper than an iphone contract.
Seagate also got a bad reputation lately for the quality of their HDDs.
Re: Fast track to offense
The United States in general stands for racism, it's not as if the problems are all in Southern states.
This shows how much money talks in the USA, don't blame the guns...blame a flag for his murders. If the next killer flies the red white and blue will they ban that as well and just fly a picture of a fat man stuffing a McD into his face from now on?
Why are people surprised?
I am amazed that people are so surprised at this, contrary to anything Amazon may say about empowering authors etc they are in the business of making money; I'm only surprised they haven't yet tried to claim joint authorship of anything put on their service. We will probably see a lot of much longer books now.
Re: Take a good look
Murder , Extortion and Torture don't count when it's the US government doing it.
Re: oh Dear
Yes, how dare those pesky Scots try to control their own laws.
Well that tagline says it all, MS could release the cure to cancer and tech sites like this would berate it in preference of Apple releasing iTurd...a turd in a can.
It's a sign of todays rampant greed when only 6.5% growth is being touted as impending failure.
Give them a choice
Okay, if they want to block users modifying old games to keep them going then they should be legally obliged to support their online games; If i have bought a game with an online option then they should keep the servers for that game running for the next 75years until copyright runs out. Gaming took a downhill turn when the shysters in suits took over, they really do want to eat their cake and still have it don't they.
Why wouldn't the USA ignore privacy laws? They ignore all other laws when it suits them.
Is this the same Sony that recently suffered a major hack and ran about bleating that hackers were evil and it wasn't Sonys fault?
Isn't the velocity as important than the size?
Does this apply to politicians as well, or are they exempt?
Re: UK Govt are idiots
Not so stupid, I have little doubt they will have exempted themselves from this.
Have they actually tested this on roads that are NOT wide multi lane roads? How about country roads or built up European towns?
Re: The US justice system...
Try broken and corrupt.
It is now too late to stop the damage from climate change, the USA preferred to argue about causes rather than solutions. While we try to limit the effects we should be looking at new ways of dealing with hurricanes/floods and droughts.
iPlayer is usually ok; the real farce is virgins own TVanywhere service, it's a worthless buffering mess for me and i'm on 100mb.
Is this 2 way or is it designed to only benefit the USA as most of these treaties are?
The problem is that common sense takes a back seat when a shyster lawyer sees a loophole.
LG suck dong
I would never pay extra for another LG 'smart' TV, paid over £100 extra for one a few years ago and LG removed almost every useful app one by one, it now doesn't support any paid for streaming service.
The idea of a new zx speccy isnt bad, the problem is SOOOO many games are going to be unplayable on this since its missing all the keys; you're gonna sit at Press F1 screens forever unless it utilises some lame onscreen keyboard overlay.
Hopefully this pathetic loser will spend the rest of a very long life in a harsh prison.
Why are people surprised that a bunch of so called experts were wheeled out within hours? Modern news is more interested in being first with a story than being accurate.
Unfortunately you can't blame the companies for filing stupid obvious patents, if they don't a competitor will; the problem is the worthless US patent office.
The way the government continues to push this tech that no-one wants you would almost believe they might have friends involved in DAB process somewhere. It's a worthless technology for anyone who doesn't live in a well supported big city.
This seems to be US policy now, all foreigners have no rights and international law must bow to what bought US judges say is legal; and these are the people who hold themselves up as the example of truth and justice the rest of us should strive towards.
The problem is the BBC have given complete scripting power to a couple of people who are nowhere near as clever as they think they are; I've said it before but the writer really needs to get someone honest to proofread the stories and point out all the stupidity and plot holes.
There's also the point that some of todays pop music is mastered with the expectation it will be played back on shitty headphones/speakers to its clipped to hell while they to boost parts of the audio.
Air rage will go through the roof if they allow people to use phones as they like.
I suspect his team players are within their rights to tell him to go f*ck himself.
Re: OnePlus One
my lumia has fm radio.
Zynga destroyed farmville through greed, they just kept adding more farms until it became impossible to play the game without paying for speedups.
If a monkey can't hold copyright then it should be down to...whos camera was it? This seems to be more about a growing trend for big online presences to think they're above the laws us peasants have to adhere to.
Re: Smart as they are, just not smart enough to do it on their own.
Aren't the germans considered the best at making cars that actually work rather than looking nice.
You see a lot of US bashing because the US makes it so easy.
nematoad: You're missing the point, bad things are only bad when it's NOT the USA doing them; If America kidnaps and tortures someone thats fine, if someone else does it...they are evil. If the USA decides that privacy laws and human rights don't matter then that's fine, as long it it's only 1 way.
That's 4 words.
