Are they effectively reporting the installation and success rate of ad blockers or is there something else that reduces 'viewabilty' as well?
I wonder if UFS will be better for use as an operating storage device. i.e. for use by next generation devices that replace things like a Raspberry Pi or Pine64!
SD cards are less than ideal.
To some small businesses £60 a month is a lot.
"Reached out", "Moving forward" etc. What horrible big business gobbledygook phrases! Does ElReg you really wish to portray such a faceless disinterested image?
1080p with low compression i.e.few jpeg artefacts, would give a good enough picture for me. Broadcasters are skinflints and won't give good quality unless they can charge you more.
"When AArch64 takes over ARM, then we'll be having a similar discussion " I expect there to be billions of 32bit ARM systems being produced for many years to come, the IoT isn't going to go significantly 64bit for many years if ever. There are still many 8bit systems being produced!
"change Juno’s velocity by 1,212 miles per hour (542 metres a second)" My first thought was is that dropping the speed say by half or what. According to Wikipedia it was approaching Jupiter at 74,000 m/s so less than a 1% change which seems remarkable!
I was thinking the landing would be at low speed but then spotted that it is orbiting the comet and is not geostationary so whilst the vertical seep may be negligible the horizontal speed is probably high and it will crash into a mountainside at its orbiting speed
The full quote is better: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
Surely someone has the power to fire him. A good article would explain what is necessary to dismiss him or if it isn't possible report why not. I've read umpteen ElReg article about Battistelli but can't recall any mention. It reminds of Katrina Percy, chief executive of Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust who refuses to resign despite a number of damming reports. The fact that both of them are refusing to go confirms they need to go.
'...pushed earthward for an ironic fiery disposal'
If I was a Microsoft shareholders I'd have my head in my hands weeping!
I read an article a while back that explained big companies like Microsoft think they have to always continue to get bigger so when their main market becomes mature and stops growing they try and expand by buying up comparatively new companies. This almost never works. They can't get their head around managing a shrinking business and squander the cash they have that should be returned to shareholders. I suspect Apple will fall into this trap in a few years time.
Now if I was LinkedIn shareholder I'd have a big grin, though as I never thought anyone would be so stupid as to pay $26Bn for it I'm not a shareholder!
"Wireless is nifty, but wired is and always will be better. As for connector types, there will be plenty of upgrades to come. I just hope they're not smaller"
Well I wish there was a smaller wired network connector than RJ45 particularly in height! Much of the connector is only mechanical.
One of the problems is the use by "We are phoning from Microsoft and we have noticed a problem with your computer scammers" This is not my field but surely there could make it more difficult for the scammers. e.g. have the IP address of any remote access to be logged by TeamViewer with a block on using anonymising etc. Also a simple warning "Warning if you are using this as result of an unsolicited call it probably is a scam" that users need to answer with at least three key presses YES to.... I'm sure better brains than mine could improve things a lot.
Last time "Microsoft Support" got me to install TeamViewer I managed to keep them on the phone for over half an hour before they twigged I was on to their scam.
"write-offs for tax purposes" I suspect most of the cost in buying Nokia would have been 'Goodwill' not IPR of fixed assets. In the UK writing off goodwill does not save any tax. I expect the US is the same.
I do wish them well but it sounds like a classic case of rearranging the deck chairs whilst the ship is sinking!
It would only be a problem if it hindered Raspbian and the other OSs etc. I can't see it doing that.
I've no use for it myself.
There's also pedestrians, people who live or work on the route, some alarm systems, some IoT etc. that would be effected!
Having a safeguard mirror that was slight convex in one or both axis would distribute the light over an even larger area.
But the main problem would be the necessary area that would need safeguarding, it would include a lot of the tower structure as cables will be running all the way down the tower. This would significantly increase the weight and the wind resistance requiring a stronger tower. Sensitive parts near the designed 'light collection' point should though be protected.
There could also be a system that checks the main collector is getting the light level expected and set off an alarm if not, Also it could unfocus the beam if not corrected within an appropriate time scale.
I must be missing something. What has a photo of a Daisey wheel got to do with the story?
I've tried thinking laterally, backwards and upside down!
An extra 25% capacity in one band is probably only about 10% overall and 'In a few years' time.
Data growth will far outstrip this increase:-(
They have a column for TBs, GBs & MBa as well as Seconds, Minutes and Hours!
One column for capacity and one time is all we need or don't they think we know 1TB is 1000GB?
'clean clothes as a service' is part of the "Circular economy" idea.
The more I read about it the more I believe it is the only way mankind will survive into the next century.
"and we would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
"and we would like to apologise for THE inconvenience caused.”
'Any' plays the problem down. It is best not look like you're wheedling out of it.
The key thing is WHO can authorize the alteration. If it is the owner of the vehicle then that seems to be to be the correct situation and no problem.
Rather like the UK act that covers misuse of computers!
"Marshmallow was released 6 months ago." Yes but it is only available on top of the range phones.
I went phone shopping for my wife earlier this month and IIRC the cheapest phone to buy unlocked with Marshmallow was over £250.
The shop assistant did say that Marshmallow would probably eventually appear for the Motorola Moto G she bought!
"won't this just lead to yet more highly-resistant bacteriological strains evolving?"
Not necessarily. Bacteria will always try and adapt to survive but they don't always do so. I'm thinking of Silver, its antibacterial properties don't seem to have diminished over hundreds of years!
I just hope they don't find a gotcha to stop commercial implementation.
I wonder what other usages there are apart from phones and tablets!
Pity no time scales for practical usage were given.
and something to tell the grandchildren but I do wonder if any Pastafarians don't have their tongue firmly in their cheek!
Intel aren't wanting to ship lots of development boards but the chip. So it is the 100,000+ chip cost that is the important thing.
I'm guessing someone at mccrewsecurity.com.
Not my area but I'm presuming OSP = Online service provider?
$35,000 sounds not to bad in the UK except whilst $35,000 = £24,500 Tesla  want £48,500 + £10,500 VAT. It doesn't cost £24,000 to ship!
No LED street lights around here but almost all the pedestrian crossing now use them for the lights the cars see, the green/red cross now/don't cross and the button LED the pedestrians press, they are all very bright in particular the red LED in the button the pedestrians press I find quite a glaring distraction as a motorist or cyclist.
I would have thought that they'd have a catch all "All products should comply with the appropriate standards", there going to have a very long list otherwise and if something isn't on the list enforcing a catch all becomes more difficult.
I recall one site (I think it might be Amazon) that says you can't list anything illegal! Which seems a very stupid condition to me, it's as if their T's&C's override the law
Certainties in life: Death, Taxes and Theft inc. card fraud
"Dealing with cash is a definite, rather high, cost."
Probably less than fraud or can you cite otherwise?
"Also, doesn't the merchant pay a small cut of each transaction? Cash doesn't provide that."
Credit/debit card Merchant service companies charge me between 2.5 and 4% so not such a small cut!
For cash, businesses do get charged a handling fee by the banks. My bank charges 0.5% to pay in bank notes, coins are a lot more. Not sure about withdrawals.
It seems to have been designed by committee which I suspect is one of the reasons it was delayed so long.
I do wish the project well but with the Pi Zero now available I think they missed the boat.
Also items that are given away are not valued and often discarded quickly. Thomas Paine: "What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly:"
Yes definitely an Acorn Atom.
"interested to see the SATA interface"
Whilst the info on the WD website is very sparse and the photos very small, you can just make out the USB 3 socket on the motherboard and the corresponding plug on the cable kit.
From the WD site:
"Native USB 7mm HDD – slim drive"
Is that a quote? Sounds like from the film Airplane but google doesn't confirm.
My RapidO Ig (Cortex-A15) has 4GB!
On Amazon unless it is music or a book their search is abysmal. Searching for computer bits is dire.
I managed to phone them up to ask what syntax/operators can be used for searching and not even a supervisor knew that you can omit red items with -red
Yes they need to provide a way that the customer can phone them back (on a publicly published number). Unfortunately last time I asked a caller from my companies bank what department I needed to ask for, they said the call centre couldn't put me through to his particular department. IIRC it sounded like it would have been to our advantage.
I should have done I'll tell you one of my data points if you'll tell me one then another from each side and so on.
I suspect in some(many?) companies the department in charge of the building control won't be the IT department!
Now if NetFlix operated in the far east I think the results would be quite different!
I'm surprised there was no mention of: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/11/28/arm1_visualized/
"In the case of the ARM1, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Brit chip architects ARM, the team have managed to lay their hands on the original designs of the 32-bit RISC processor core, and visualized it for the web" http://visual6502.org/sim/varm/armgl.html
NetSurf http://www.netsurf-browser.org/ it's small, open source and actively being developed!
Otter https://otter-browser.org/ not so small but also open source and actively being developed!
I thought every one knew:
The likely hood of a printer successfully completing a print job is in inverse proportion to the urgency f the job.!
