Re: "Don’t download from places which are not official app stores"
What I'm saying is that there IS an official UK National Lottery app, which they cannot put on Google Play due to US anti-gambling rules.
You have to download it yourself from the UK National Lottery website, enable "unknown sources" & install it yourself.
"Don’t download from places which are not official app stores"
This includes the OFFICIAL National Lottery App, because gambling is forbidden by Google's T&Cs (don't know about Apple & MS ones)
A defendant was missed out
The suit should also name FISA for "enabling acts of cyber-terrorism".
I've also had a few of these.
My usual response is either:-
A: Wind them up so tight they start swearing down the phone, at which point I tell them their supervisor is standing RIGHT behind them.
B: Say in my best 1930's BBC accent, "I'm terribly sorry old chap, but I don't speak a word of English. Good day to you, sir!"
I smell lobbyists

What makes you think they haven't?

Re: Is it just me?
If you're going to downvote, at least have the courtesy to say WHY!
Is it just me?
Or does the article read as if the ISPs are claiming that doing nothing is "unworkable"?
I, for one, do not wish to be transparent

Re: Microdots ?
It's called "Smartwater" http://www.smartwater.com/
It's likely one of the 90% scale replicas doing the airshow circuit.
Nursery Rhymes could have saved all this trouble...

We need some brave soul to add an amendment to a bill, which prohibits amending bills in the future.
The unasked question
How is it at cohabiting with another OS?
I understand Boris is trying that for the new hybrid buses.
Not for a full charge, just a quick top-up whilst at the bus stop.
Re: If only..
" If only the laws of physics and chemistry allowed a cheap small, light, high capacity battery to be constructed..."
Or is it patent issue?
Article is incomplete
BBC also say a larger ship (capacity 19,224 containers) will be launched in 52 days.
Re: No point in kicking a dead dog.
"Sorry, but giving up your freedom for security is not an option - in fact a US President originally said that, but I guess he'd be sitting in Gitmo today for an anti-American attitude."
Ben Franklin was never El Presidente.
It's been done...
Someone in USA (due to last minute illness) was able to attend last year's World SciFi Convention at London Excel using one of these.
Re: Can I take this opportunity to moan about UK pricing?
USA adds sales tax of between 0% (Oregon) & 9.45% (Tennessee) at the checkout, making the drive anything from $64.99 to $71.13
UK adds 20% VAT BEFORE the checkout, making the drive $78 (or £51.47 at today's rate), so you're right. It's a 50% markup for good old "Treasure Island"!
In other news...

Re: Part Number?
And monies. What monies for drive?
What's with the Victorian moralities?

US Politics needs one "Lone Wolf"
Someone who will sneak a rider onto an unrelated, but absolutely essential bill, which bans riders on bills.
Fusion EATS hydrogen to make helium, leaving less fuel for the car!
Please force the FA to start their own subscription funded TV channel, so that I DON'T have to pay for sport I WILL NEVER WATCH!
So "disabling" TRIM support on 3rd party SSDs isn't a bug, but a feature?
This could pay for itself in days!
Re: where did I put that Raspberry Pi
Don't get it from McD's. You'll get an honorable mention at the Darwin Awards!
Depending where you are, you're still in with a chance.
Some "Broadband Initiatives" (Superfast Cymru is mine) are moving EO lines onto cabinets in the exchange carpark.
I know this to be the case as it has happened to me, although line length seems to limit me to 55-65Mb/s
"Squigly line logo"
Google Image Search suggests the logo is an equation. "SQRT(ANS)"

Fans will note several "Easter Eggs" when re-watching this.

But make the sound of a Fax machine signalling that it's "Out of Paper" as your outgoing message.
Laws agains junk faxes are more strictly enforced than phone calls.
Re: I'm baffled
It seems that you've never played the game "Whack-a-Mole"?
Similar on Radio news earlier.
Some guys in the UK have been charged with assorted Terror offenses including "On-line reconnaissance of a police station and military base", AKA using Google Earth.
Nothing is new under the sun
Re: "true dat"
"Google will be just fine with a micro sd slot."
Unlikely. Google want you to upload everything to their cloud, so they (and NSA etc) can scrape your data.
Re: 2-part security?
Wipe would be initiated when phone _cannot_ see the security token.
Old school version would be the old "If anything happens to me, the information I have goes to the papers".
Re: Google has since promised to do something similar with Android smartphones.
"Eh? Then what does the Settings -> Security -> Encrypt Device on my Android 4.1 phone do? Or the Settings -> Security -> Encrypt external SD card ?"
Nothing unless you switch it on. Which is what Google will do in Android L (default ON instead of OFF).
Since Plod will take a phone immediately as evidence, but leave jewellery until a suspect is booked, auto-wiping might be achieved by pairing with an NFC ring ( http://nfcring.com/ ) or similar device.
If NFC ring <> connected then return phone to factory settings.
Placing the phone in an RF-shielded bag would obviously break the connection between phone & NFC device.

Not a lot of people realize that El Presidente is only cleared to the red level of that graphic.

But what guarantees have MS given that this "feature" will be removed in later builds?
