Won't somebody think of the grownups?
Single point of failure?
Obviously, the GCHQ./NSA email-snarfing box has had an ouchie.
Wait a week
The logo won't be on the 3D Bluray.
"Whatever it really thinks about Doctor Who, the BBC certainly isn’t keen on 3D."
Since they decline to inform viewers how to find the 3D programs, viewing figures will of course justify cancellation of their efforts.
Agreed. It was nice for McGann to list the companions he's had while working for Big Finish.
Tonight's "Adventures in Space and Time"...
...is the "Making of..." this very episode.
If its star, Dave Bradley is convincing as Hartnell, I believe the Beeb should engage his services full time, to remake the missing episodes.
When Hartnell stories run out, they merely need to find a Pat Troughton lookalike, and continue with his stories.
I commend this idea to the house.
Samsung have invented the Tobleronophone?
Re: I expect to get a zillion downvotes but...
"No one ticked the box that says the NSA can read my mail."
It's beginning to look like Google did.
Re: Why all the exitement?
Thanks for reminding me about this.
Just used it to kill the HP printer software supplied on my brand-new Nexus 5 direct from Google.
Devs please note:- Unless an app is an _essential_ part of the OS, it _must_ be deletable.
Easy to avoid...
From what I've read elsewhere, these are installed inside the shop, targeting people queueing to pay.
All the Tesco garages I've visited have "Pay@Pump" at _every_ pump. Why go into the shop?
If you absolutely have to enter the shop, the webcam controlling this seems like the perfect place to park that used gum.
Besides, the Asda next door is usually a few pence cheaper anyway.
Re: "Cameron's Conservative party have promised...
2015 is after 2010, but then so is 2030.
Re: Why didn't he answer the question?
You forget that politicians are psychologically incapable of answering yes or no to ANY question.
Follow the money!
Odds that this research was funded by The Vegetarian Society?
Isn't it obvious?
"A German researcher is asking why Google is using the “horribly broken” RC4 and MD5 cipher as its first-default for SSL"
Because the NSA told them to.
Re: Why can't they write some new programmes?
Not CGI - Proper stop-motion.
New puppets are being made by the firm that worked on "The Corpse Bride" etc.
Re: Pics or it didn't happen.
There are pics at the link in the middle of the story.
Fail is you.
"Civil Liberties & Privacy Officer"
Sunday Trading laws mean "24 Hour" branches are open 06:00 Monday to 23:59 Saturday, then 10:00 to 16:00 (or 11:00 to 17:00) Sunday.
Re: I could see banning offensive words,
The world has learned plenty.
Politicians... not so much.
Re: local media
The Cloud exists. The NSA don't want you to have local media.
Zuckerberk wants this for only one reason...
He's hoping they all sign up to FacePalm, so he can sell their souls to advertising Shoggoths.
Re: Wait a minute
Nice use of Seuss - Upvoted
"Somwhere in the Bay Area?
Place it _straddling_ the San Andreas Fault... and wait
Re: instant fail
Even HF isn't capable of dissolving through a bathtub & floor.
Mythbusters this week was a Breaking Bad special.
Actually, Caterham are bringing out a new model for about £17k.
The bad news is that it's a 3cyl 660cc Suzuki turbo:-
Re: Not learning from history?
"So, is it because becoming a politician makes people stupid and arrogant, or is it only stupid and arrogant people who want to become politicians?"
Obama is just a figurehead
I direct your attention to the BBC docu-drama called "Yes, Prime Minister!".
Re: LTE / 4G
Apparently going to cost £299
There's a slim chance I might have the option of fibre by then.
Re: Signed up for Force9 (now Plusnet) with my 9600 modem
For the last few years Plusnet has been owned by BT. (That's why I left them).

Slashdot has more - TOR hacked by FBI
Re: Maybe The Dr is going full circle
If they were really going full circle, then the next Doctor would logically be David Bradley, who is playing William Hartnell in the Dr Who: Origins special "An Adventure in Space and Time" that the Beeb are putting out.
I'm Brian, and so's my wife!
Re: but WHO will rid us of terrible trolls?
I think we'll have to do it ourselves at the next election.
(Needs V for Vendetta icon)
Remember, this is only the NSA's _public_ budget threatened with cuts.
Their "Black Budget"* will increase by 2x any cuts to compensate.
* Black Budget - Concealed funding ($20,000 for a toilet seat , etc)
Re: Well my English cousins...
Unfortunately, any such protest will receive absolutely zero coverage in the regular press,
as the f***w*ts who own it all are 100% behind the ban in order to promote sales of their old-fashioned skin mags.
As any fule no...
'twas the Red Moon that destroyed life on Mars.
Re: "most likely be configured to perform boring, tricky tasks like parking"
Current models only work the steering, the driver still has to apply throttle & brake.
Volvo have recently shown off a car which will drop the humans off at the entrance to a multi-storey car park, then drive in and find itself an empty space.
How the driver finds or summons his car back to take him home was not revealed.
Counting the days...
Until we can tell Cameron to "Default Off".
What's that I smell?
Something a lot like astroturf
Maybe that's why...
The inquiry into GCHQ's PRISM-alike interweb snarfing program is being held in secret?
Because they don't want the great unwashed knowing that it they p*ssed science only knows how many billions on yet another broken system!
Re: It's the wrong searchj
The nearest NutriMatic machine is at Barnard's Star
Why re-invent the wheel? They could just sign up as a BOINC project - http://boinc.berkeley.edu/
Cue the conspiracy theorists:-
Blaming the Bermuda Triangle, Somali Pirates, or even Apple / Microsoft SEAL teams in 3...2...1...
Re: V/MC are a US duopoly
Well, there is Amex, but not even NASA accept that anymore.
They can have my Facebook password
Pity I don't have an account to go with it!
Re: Wonder how
Not needed if you don't use the USB hub on the monitor.
Laptop users, however may have a problem doing that.
Simple (cheaper) solution?
Pay some school leavers minimum wage to rip all the tapes into one or more Petaboxes.
Looks like he means "A RasPi in every lunchbox!" rather than lessons in driving MS Office.
