Surely safer to put down inductive charging loops next time the roads are resurfaced.

'Tis International Talk Like A Pirate Day, Johnny lad!
So, just outside the Cardynge Limit then?

"Is that justice?"
As I understand things, taking a look for the skycrane is one of the mission objectives.
Why HDD sales _really_ fell.
Lower prices == more unit sales == more profiits
We've all been waiting for prices to drop since the flood happened.
Disney to file lawsuit in 3...2...1...
Noone wins but the lawyers!
Whilst at my first ever job in 1983, working for the local Acorn dealership, I was involved in coding a system that did EXACTLY this using the BBC Micro and the BLISS symbol library for a local special school.

Re: Blame the US
It's a good job the USPTO wasn't this stupid 100 years ago...
If it were, Edison would have been able to patent "Using electricity to power a device".
I had a 3010, and still have a RiscPC StrongARM - which still runs!
Christian, Acorns before the RiscPC had to share video memory with program memory, all 0.5 to 4MB of it.
The RiscPC was available with an optional 1 or 2 MB VRAM stick.
Note that those memory amounts are MEGABYTES not GIGABYTES. ISTR paying over 100ukp to upgrade my A3010 to 2MB.

EU vows to make asylum-seeker database 'more efficient'
By leaving it on the bus?
I believe this to be a good thing...
When I watched kid's BBC (back before the dawn of time), I was always really annoyed when it got pre-empted for the budget, tennis, snooker or pro-celebrity tiddleywinks.
Dedicated channels like CBBC/CBeebies will not see this.
Re: It's all so depressing...
There _was_ a supersonic Harrier in development, until the Gubmint of the day canned it in 1965 to buy F4 Phantoms.
Note for GCHQ:-
Expect large uptick in highly encrypted email.
I thought it was called "The War Against Terror"?
At least that's what I've thought of every politician since...
Do what I'd do...
Tell them you don't have a Farceberk profile.
(Except I wouldn't be lying)
As any fule no
It's _tachyons_ you need for FTL & time travel!
What should happen next...
Sir Ian McKellen should insist on the premiere being held in Southampton, with the after-party held at the establishment in question.
(Y'know - just to rub the lawyers noses in it).
Satnav blindness is everywhere.
One end of the road where I work is closed for a couple of weeks whilst the roundabout there is enlarged as part of improving access onto the industrial estate.
Sat-tards are driving past ALL SIX "Road closed ahead" signs and not turning round until they've found the big hole in the road at the very end.
Remember when Shakespeare said "First, kill the lawyers"?
Maybe he meant UI designers, because this makes Ubuntu Unity & Gnome Shell look well thought out!
I for one, welcome our new alcohol-fueled robotic overlord!
Title goes where?
"mass-produced, lowest common denominator, well, shit being pushed out by "artists" every day"
Or "Complete & utter Cowell" as I like to call it.
"There were a series of marketing cock-ups from Acorn"
Like cancelling "Project Phoebe" (RiscPC II) only six weeks from launch _after_ taking pre-orders?
If the gubmint _really_ wanted everyone to have the latest maps...
Then they'd force car dealerships to update built-in satnavs for free as part of the annual service.
Instead of asking for £££ to buy a disc just for yourself that can update _all_ cars with that system.
"Moot something so outrageous that everyone is up in arms. While they are all distracted by agreeing that it should be stopped, sneak through something less harmful (but still harmful) into the legislation."
You mean like sneaking the EU's sign-up to ACTA into the bowels of an Agriculture & Fisheries meeting?
See page 43 of this press release:-
Let's see now...
No black surround? - check
No rounded corners? - check
No horizontal speakers? - check
Apple will be livid!
Have you got it?
Try "Voodoo Carrier IQ Detector" from the Android Market.
(Says no on my Orange Samsunge Galaxy SII)
Wait a minute...
OFCOM had teeth?
Title should read...
Software maker sorry for getting caught trying to silence security researcher
You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy, we must be cautious.
The 3 tenets of politics

2: Deliver nothing.
3: Blame someone else.
