Virgin Galactic picked a better home base
Yes, I know this place is further south for extra free thrust, but VG's has the better name:-
"Mojave Spaceport" - (You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.)
No one asked him the important question!
Did Apple start the "charge in the microwave" story to make the gullible buy 2 each?
"Actually, if you look at it, it seems "the electronics" is basically a cell-phone on the front. It's rounded like one."
That's because the display uses the screen from a Samsung Note 3.
Re: How to win friends...
I call OXYMORON. You used government & intelligence in the same sentence!
Re: Sigh! ...Industry issue... not an Apple one...
Sadly, Nexus (Nexii?) don't have MicroSD slots.
Re: nearly $1000
"But you can't buy a car that says "I'm a twat" for that price, though."
I'm pretty sure you _could_ get a used Audi for that much!
NFC woes to come
I can see the banks jumping onto Apple Pay, and leaving Android handsets with NFC by the wayside as they have been doing since 2010.
Will this run on a VM I wonder?
+1 to buying this guy a pint!
The REAL problem with Scottish independance
HM Customs will be able to impose an additional import duty on whisky!
These are all *@gmail.com usernames. I've always dismissed the "Convert your googlemail.com address to gmail.com" popup box.

Re: Not really useful
Didn't see that bit. Maybe this will be worth looking at after all...
Pity the website doesn't actually list the so-called "compatible cameras".
Not really useful
Why does no-one make one of these that can be WRITTEN TO using wifi.
It would be SO useful for a photographer.
No, it's just a coincidence.
The development codename is always an alliteratively described animal (Warty Warthog, Dapper Drake, Utopic Unicorn, etc) chosen by Ubuntu's SABDFL* Mark Shuttleworth.
The next codename will be chosen this month, ahead of next month's release and will be something like "Velvety Vole" or similar.

Apple to claim invention of NFC in 5...4...3...
Steady on, there's no need for language like that, old chum!
Laws need to be passed
Robocalls NEED banning in the UK.
Re: Aviation geeks
Monkey Bob - try this site. It seems fairly comprehensive:-
Bhatt missed a trick.
He should have replied to the phishing email by saying:-
"That's not the dead guy outside OUR office, Our dead guy looks like this" and attach the scammer's webcam feed URL
Zuckerberg wants into Linux because few Linux Users are FacePlanters?

Re: Hard Time Make Them Envious of Hard Disks?
"No doubt the 'recording industry' would like to sue me for not buying something to use in the player."
Give it time...
Apple won't use NFC because they don't hold the patent.
The patent for NFC payments is owned by Visa & Samsung <-- because this?
Re: No lawyer?
Lawyers couldn't take the pay cut
Reds are OK for any size NAS
I've been running 16X 3TB Reds in my home server for nearly 2 years now without any trouble whatsoever.
I'll probably start swapping to 6TB drives when they eventually start dying.
Bad news, everyone!
As a woman, her cabinet position is safe under today's reshuffle.
Scotland using English tld?
Shouldn't the tld be .alba ?
Actually R'y'leh is UNDER the South Pacific!
Re: Get a grip
GCHQ Shill downvoted.
Obvious reason is obvious...
BT would rather charge £500 install & £100/week for a leased line.
Meanwhile in 2016...
Parliamentary review of this "new law":-
Politician#1: "Why has this got a sunset clause?"
Politician#2: "We don't need that! Let's delete it."
Politican#3: "OK. All in favour?"
Direction: All present raise hands
A staffer no-one seems to have heard of.
The only thing I can think of is that this mystery staffer is/was a BBC America Spanish translator, who needed the scripts to come up with suitable subtitles for the show.
Re: It's for kids
It is only compulsory to grow old. Growing up is completely optional.
Re: I'd like to see the day
Remember the good old days?
When Top Gear confined its insults to caravanners?
Re: Making it Pay
And who pays the Home Office so they can pay the ISPs I wonder?
Leaving this here...
Re: Nut allergy
At least you didn't get as far as Communication, Logistics and Information Technology!
Re: @P010nium "They paid it when........."
"Paying kickbacks to the German dealer .... OK, that WAS illegal :-)"
There is precedent however - search for "Lockheed and Luftwaffe"
Bonk also works at Boots, McD's & Aldi.
There is no Dark Side of the Force - It is all Marketing
This is obviously marketings plan to massively boost Bing's market share by counting every system sold.
That same marketing department will also carefully forget to subtract users who immediately switch search engine as soon as they boot up their new toy (ie: all of them).
Said it before, I'll say it again...
No Faceplant, no problem!
No Pirates to vote for here...
And then there were the no-hopers.
Obligatory Star Wars quote...
"I have a very bad feeling about this."
"We've asked NBC Universal and GitHub for comment on this reported incident, but we haven't heard back from them."
Because NBC are already prodding their lawyers into (un)life.
Chris (Wing Commander) Roberts' latest offering "Star Citizen" goes multiplayer beta starting May 29th, and starts at $35 to jump in (choose a starship from $30 plus $5 "Arena Commander pass").
Star Citizen is a wholly crowdfunded MMO Space Sim with FPS capabilities (Current funding is approx $43.8million and counting).
Unlike Eve Online or Elite, you are not the ship, you are the pilot and can get up & walk around your ship.You can land on a planet, get out of your ship and go to the trading outpost, weapons boutique, ship dealership, police station or pub.
Arena Commander is a space sim within the main Star Citizen game.
If encryption can delay NSA access beyond the heat-death of the Universe, it should be just about enough.

No. Simon Cowell is killing music!
Re: It might be illuminating ...
You may be cynical, but I won't say you're wrong.
Re: Hack away you can't do worse than Bristol City Council
This done by intent.
The idea is apparently to discourage inner-city motoring, rather than improve traffic flow & lower pollution.
