Not sure if Google do what the American government want or Vica Versa
Just mentioned it earlier to some-one else, Try "Should I answer".
Free and Ad free
I Swear I am not the developer, although I believe I share the same hatred of Nuisance calls
I would be sorely tempted as well !!!
Only hangup would be the charging capability whilst using satnav, bluetooth & hotspot Whilst on car journeys.
Have a look at "should I answer".
Absolutely Brilliant imo
Send them a bill of 19K to remove the data, and just leave some of it anyway.
Something about sayings about medicine and boots
Use a controller Gawd, I can't for one. But then again I find mouse and KB much more accurate, would love to see controller users VS M&KB users in a tournament :)
Its not hard to point input keys to a input.cfg.
Only blocked ads on the reg, was when they started getting full page. had nowhere to click to pull it to the front to scroll.
they could pop them in zip lock bags, to stop the smell in the meantime :D
Water is perfectly safe in contact with electricity, as water does not conduct electricity.
Dont be so naive, Apple have done this already and will patent it soon enough.
Regarding your title. Depends if the company flops Hehheheheh.
That was worth reading :D
think its wider than that, heard this one years ago.
Are we allowed to re-iterate jokes that reside within our wetware storage ?
The only thing to fear is fear. Oh and spiders, F*ck Spiders
Way to obvious, but have an upvote to annoy others :D
This whole thread is brilliant for a Friday morning. Grinning my ass off
Good thing I'm not a secretary, I will side with you on that battle. I do actually try to spell correctly, it just isn't in my skill set im afraid.
I had / Have no quibble with their English or grammar, only that they have been known to believe that a headline that they cant make italic is an IT issue.
Finally some secretary's that will know how to use word ;)
Oh im going to hell for this post !!!
That you can just run a clean install from the windows installation.
Tried it out yesterday, took an age on my old laptop, but did what it said on the tin.
Then again I wasnt trying to get rid of any nasties, just try and sort drivers out :/
It would just intensify the spotlight
also, I would contend that similar to having to take a test for the power of the bike engine the same is done for car drivers.
Have to use <1.2ltr after taking your test for 2 years before you can apply for <2.0 ltr engine.
I shall edit this as it has been re-iterated many time above me.
So instead, I personally drive a 2cv, love the basic driving style, I don't really want to loose the ability to use my car as a daily driver, but alas it will happen. Probably not in my lifetime though, you don't all really expect the government to get this sorted do you !!!!

Much simpler fix,
When a patent is granted the company has to produce and sell products that utilise the patent, after a 2 year period after manufacturing has stopped, they loose rights to the patent, and it becomes free for all to use.
Virtual Man hug!
Can I not buy this now !!!!!!
Do I hear your name being called
I have to admit, I haven't looked at a IRQ in aaaaages ........
Thank you for reminding me when things were harder, puts it all in perspective.
So only good for phablets and above :)
It will be an event which will be analysed thoroughly and the lesson(s) learnt will be taken on board by all other vehicles on the road, and *never* repeated.
You put way to much trust in corporations, how many times have they been caught covering up defects as it was cheaper to pay the odd legal battle.
you get an upvote:) Not often you get to be smug in the mobile discussions :) enjoy
Although security through obscurity ... well we all know where that leads :D
El-Reg was the reason I got ABP, I dont mind adverts, just keep them responsible. It was when they started filling the entire background and you couldnt click on the sides to scroll down, that was when I got irritated enough to do something.
Considering It's El-Reg they should think about offering a Ad-free version.
yup, I will temporarily allow scripts till I find the one needed to display content. then allow it permanently, but it is amazing to see how many scripts are trying to concurrently run and what little need they have for it either !!
would be great to see this as a little browser add-on, how power hungry is this website. scored 1-100
I would say that the selection criteria is completely different.
You pick men who are already all in the field, so you end up with average Joe Bloggs,
Advertise select position for 1 or two female staff ... Get the elite.
Either way, who cares how many are in the profession, so long as its open as a choice to all.
Cars that drive themselves ?
Terrorists wet dream I would of thought, how many cars on the road at any one time? OK lets just put every single one on full acceleration. Job done country is absolutely completely crippled.
closer to this story, how good is the security at radio stations? take over station quietly, please play this track from blah blah.
"In sum, a person who knowingly operates a device that is capable of inadvertently exposing his conversations to third-party listeners, and fails to take simple precautions to prevent such exposure, does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy with respect to statements that are exposed to an outsider by the inadvertent operation of that device."
In reality, I don't think he knowingly operated the device !!!
1980_coder, That is a bit unfair, replacing a stereo and laying down a cable with camera on the end isn't exactly more complex than Ikea furniture. You could safely assume 98% of the population could figure it out.
most tech luddites I know, are not stupid or incompetent, they are Lazy and would rather somebody else did it for them.
@Hellcat, Yup, or the crappy plastic wedges that hold the window in place, Although I drive a 2cv so don't even have to worry about that. Windows just Flap up.
Bet it was console gamers as well.
Generally not particularly well known for loosing well.
Well, I was going to enter as well, but I also am disqualified :(
"that you can put together an program that can run within a time limit or on limited resources rather than just lashing together a hideous brute-force monstrosity."
Wild shot in the dark whilst bronco riding.
Could it be the amount of moisture / dust in the air due to temperature difference, one side will generally be slightly warmer than the other due to being in the sun for longer.
Say what you like about Elon Musk, he's not boring. ®
I thought we had to be somewhat careful with our comments here ;)
I was under the impression that Android will support SD cards over 250GB
go back and re-read the article
"First, I have to ask why are you not booting and installing over the network for 1000+ PCs"
1) large number of sites - the upgrades were being carried out at the user locations
2) decentralised network - not all the sites had access to the same part of the local NHS COIN, we would have had problems finding a server available to all sites with enough bandwidth
3) because the guys who planned the rollout had limited degrees of freedom of thought and simply "wanted it done that way"........because they considered it more secure. Yes, really, Don't look at me like that......not my decision
In reality you're right - because it was a COIN network we should have been able to find a way, but weren't allowed to. But we've had other cases where it simply isn't possible - e.g. thousands of machines covering all the GP surgeries in an entire county, all on local domains, maybe a couple of hundred. Not something that can be done from a central server -the N3 network isn't fast enough
"I work for the NHS"
oh yes a free upvote for your comments ;)
Family member asked me for advice on a cheapish laptop £500
as it was for work got a 17" HP specced up with Quad core 8GB of RAM and was a tidy little machine.
Family member has been advised by somebody to go with Lenovo !!! I have not had much experience with Lenovo, but our HP laptop has children litterally walking over it multiple times a week (lives on the sofa) I am Obsolutley gobsmacked how unbeliveably robust the HP is, and considering mine is alive 3 years later albeit no webcam detected now for some reason, will happily sing praises of HP.
So please you guys HP or Lenovo ?
