"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.
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".
"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.
I could have sworn the Doctor said "It's the baggage car, but thanks for _lying_".
Well, it worked for Voda / EE vs Phones4U.
Books in my house are analog-only!
But what guarantees have MS given that this "feature" will be removed in later builds?
Mine's the one with a tinfoil hat in the pocket -->
I AM serious. And don't call me Shirley!
You understood me perfectly. PCS, not so much!
This is why patches should be issued ASAP, instead of waiting for the first Tuesday of next month.
"Then there's just the safety issues to address; personally I don't think H2 as a fuel is any more dangerous than LPG or petrol overall, but irrational public fears are still fears"
I don't know. You blow up one little zeppelin...
"Probably it runs Linux, has been hacked, and is currently serving up phishing attacks and SPAM with most of it's bandwidth...."
UK.gov runs Windows, always has, always will (as long as the brown envelopes keep arriving from Redmond)
MS Exec #1 - "Our next release will be Windows 9"
MS Exec #2 - "But MS Indonesia already announced 9 would be a free update for 8 & 8.1"
MS Exec #1 - "Bugger! We'll call it Windows 10 instead"
"Yeah, but at NASA these days it seems to all be about the ice"
That's because water ice = Oxygen to breathe & Hydrogen to burn.
Bonk fares are lower than cash ones.
Android (Don't know about Apple) has a data counter built into the settings.
I suspect it'll be more accurate than anything vendor supplied.
The same applies to "Orange Mail" - Android phones have to be tied to a GMail account anyway, so why bother with that either?
BBC now reporting "30 feared dead" - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-29399306
Try Isaac Asimov's "Lucky Starr, Space Ranger" series.
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.)
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.
I call OXYMORON. You used government & intelligence in the same sentence!
Sadly, Nexus (Nexii?) don't have MicroSD slots.
"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!
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!
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.
"When in doubt, C4!"
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".
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!
Robocalls NEED banning in the UK.
Monkey Bob - try this site. It seems fairly comprehensive:-
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?
"Apart from the Apollo 12 rum incident, how often are harpoons launched in space?"
I believe you'll find your answer here:- http://xkcd.com/1402/
"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?
Lawyers couldn't take the pay cut
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.
As a woman, her cabinet position is safe under today's reshuffle.
Shouldn't the tld be .alba ?
