Re: Magnetic wall
I was hoping the lower pressure environment, would resolve the floating non ferrous materials, including plastic shavings etc etc
Why not have a magnetic wall in a sealed lower pressure section for Machine shop ?
*paris, because somebody must of thought of that already ??? or I am missing an obvious massive flaw
ran a script from his computer
Am i the only who thinks this is similar to doing a bank robbery in your own car ?
Re: Faced to detonate?
Just click on tips and corrections.
I have a 2cv, and when I found out that we had a third child on the way, I was faced with a choice.
New 7 seater car......
Nope Lets make my car wider to accomadate 3 car seats :D so rather than just cut in half and add a bit in the middle, The magic of it was that the car is technically no wider as I have flat rear wings now, but gained about a foot extra width at shoulder height in the back due to just pulling the sides of the car out and adding two strips down the side. The rear end is wider though, and the sides taper out over the door area.
better not use the new batman
Its so gloomy no light will ever reach the panels !!!
Re: Finally a use for Zoolander.
I have absolutely no idea why, but for some reason i actually enjoyed that film......
How else do you think he has been doing so well !!!
Re: Negative view on Sat nav
May i recommend Waze for those who like real time traffic updates. Free on android, personally i find the address lookup a bit poor, but otherwise for routing and traffic flow calculations it is really good
Re: Obligatory xkcd reference
Yeah but now i Cant use "Batterystaple" !! somebody else has already used it !!!
On that note, it would be slightly more altruistic to create a site that went round and turned off all these devices with default passwords. call up support my device keeps turning off ? have you changed the password ... till they want to remove the amount of calls and send out the devices with random passwords.
Not sure how many people would get upset, but it would do everybody a great favor !!!
Re: Why remove it ?
I wonder if the people who sell these things should have more of a duty of care to include clear warnings of the dangers of lax security configuration?
Which in turn will only happen when things like these happen,
Why remove it ?
Is it not better that something like this exists, The worst that can come from this is, that Companies start sending out devices without default passwords / people start learning some basic security measures.
You only learn to not touch the hot oven, by burning yourself.
Re: Don't think you meant that...
so not quite the 8 stories they said in the story !!
more like 4 max, or is this times square in pigmy land?
And yes the pixel density issue.
Please can you take this reporter out back and spank him / her with a leather strap !
THOU SHALT NOT COPY PASTE WITHOUT READING
Re: Oh man
Exactly what i thought as well !! not sexist at all
Re: Nothing to hide nothing to fear
"Until your phone imei is often coincidently found in these fishing expeditions & you'll suddenly find you're self under increased scrutiny from the security services for no good reason other than some bad guys happen to be doing business in your locality."
Im really sorry, but if you live in a dodgy neighborhood, your going to get stopped and questioned if your around the scene of crimes.
e.g. If I walk past a drug dealer who is just getting busted then police would question and search me, as they should !!!! Nobody in their right mind would question this procedure?!?!
I really dont get why there is such a massive problem with this ? just because its a phone ?
This will be down to the phone manufacturer's not the phone companies I would of thought.
And this would end up a phone companies wet dream, if it came true.
Support Center: No sorry Sir, you cannot change to X phone company with your current phone. Its security is locked to our phone network for your safety in mind. And no they wont accept phones with custom firmware, you must run official software from us only, yes i know we track everything and spam you with adverts you love, but its in your best interest.
Re: Nothing to hide nothing to fear
well that's just common sense tbh, If a innocent bystander is found @ 3 separate bank robberies on cctv, it would be stupid of police to ignore that and not investigate.
Now to Charge/Arrest/Imprison somebody for being in the area on separate occasions that would be a different matter altogether and unacceptable, but investigate is perfectly fine, and I would prefer that they would be switched on enough to do so.
Re: Dirtboxes being used by dirtbags!!
Sorry wait, I dont see why you would disprove of this?
Maybe I am missing something here, Somebody is naughty, they send a plane up to look for their phone?
We could complain about ANPR while were at it too in that case.
I understand there is a massive backlash regarding state surveillance, but from what i read they are just searching for specific phones, this isn't some nationwide surveillance on tap to whatever agency wants to peek at it.
Re: I like the Reg staff's ideas better, but...
that would be nice,
so its a pc ?
Nice to see they have finally cottoned on to this practice, at least it didn't take to long!
Now to see nothing happen about it.
Re: "...nothing for the early users who grew up..."
There is some guy on YouTube
Re: "...nothing for the early users who grew up..."
Mine watches minecraft videos all the time too ... I dont get it either
Oh brilliant Friday Article, Many thanks !!!
Re: Different types of product placement
Unlike Microsoft Apple NEVER pays for product placement.
So you believe what some corporate shill is telling you ?
I'm guessing you believe the new iphone is really that much better than the old one too.
as the other poster said, how are you going to explain the gaff regarding Joan Rivers ?
Re: New depths of stupid plumbed by ... the above
That doesn't actually cause me a massive problem, certainly not one so severe as nowhere safe & warm for my family to rest and no food in their bellies.
That may be so in your case, but were not talking about you, we are talking about people who can barely cover basic bills before running out of money.
I'm probably going to stop commenting here even though i have alot to say as I am going to get upset and shout. I spent two years working sinking further and further into debt because of this very issue, so please don't tell me it doesn't exist. It bloody well does.
"We need to get CEOs to do two things: live on food stamps for a week, or spend a night in a homeless shelter,"
its after months of going hungry and the absolute fear that you cannot afford food, that really brings home how precious things can be.
Now I could probably go a week with 1 meal every 2 or 3 days
It can be accepted
Just get rid of the camera, lots of people dislike having a picture taken, even more so if they find out after the fact.
i would love to view data on the go, but cause other people discomfort .... no thanks
Re: yes i am being a cynic.
Its a way of presenting an idea, or a thought to another person.
I am all for the use of proper physics in film's, but alas I do believe that it is not for science that they chose to do it in this manner, it was lack of (good/better) options. Most likely they didn't know how to portray it.
yes i am being a cynic.
so they had no idea how to artistically convey the idea.
Re: Dear Lewis
I have to admit I was a little WTF.
Please dear Register, never get rid of this mad ranting, mouth-frothed lunatic.
Re: Can you tax regulate virtual money?
i have to agree, but I'm still stuck on how they earn money by giving something away for free.
Indoor events only, no farting / breathing allowed.
Re: I refer you all
worth an upvote on both comments
I really worry what
I might do for one of these.
I bet the UK.gov is pissed they didn't think of this first.
to the downvoter ? why im happy to take the comment with a pinch of salt. Lighten up ol chap
Wow so many cynics here
I am pretty surprised to see so many people here just exclaim it a useless waste of time.
the fact that they have been able to control to movement over a sheet of metal, is pretty impressive imo.
in regards to power failure during an earthquake, i am sure batteries and generator would be sufficient to power.
My mind is racing about what this could be used for,
Hang on ...
WTF is page 2 ???
Re: What's the point of reporting it
Yup we had our servers Dos'd & DDos'd and the police basically told us regardless of the fact they had broken the law unless your a major corperation they were not going to do anything about it.
No ifs no buts. Nothing .......
Still pisses me off to this day, yes we had all the evidence against this bloke as the numpty had used his home connection to start with, with minor effect, then bragged about it found out it wasnt doing much, then went a rented a botnet and hit us with a DDOS and then further bragged.
Mind you dynamic IP's do have something going for them reboot the router, no DDOS :D
Re: Rear Glass
So you put a screen protector on your screen protector !?!?!
The Z already has one out of the factory. (you can tell if it been replaced/missing if the Sony Logo is missing from the top of the phone)
Re: Five Hundred and Forty Nine???
Did you not read any of the iphone hype ?
people are willing to pay more than that
Sorry I downvoted your comment, but felt i needed to explain why.
Yes at first it was a kneejerk reaction, and then i thought well its nice to see an apple user appreciate good hardware, then i wondered why would you want to ruin it by putting on IOS ?
Re: Rear Glass
It is glass but has a plastic covering
Just what Woz will do isn't explained
Quite simple, make noise wow people.
Re: Major takeaway points
Yup have two tardi('s)?? myself, of two different sizes made me chuckle at the episode, until almost tripped over both today in my sleep induced coma
agreed with all the above
I would love to buy am ATI card, but dont down to shitty drivers and software.
Although mind you eyefinity almost got me to go down the AMD route, they seem to multimonitor better than Nvidia in fullscreen apps.
I buy AMD cpu's just due to the fact you get more bang for your buck so to speak, but would be tempted to go ATI next just to try and keep them afloat.
If ATI die who else have we got ?
"that something that is now fundamental, like the water, for everybody’s daily life has been entirely produced by men."
Really ... I mean really .......
Good way to ridicule feminism.
Tulley's farm can be quite fun :)
already been done.
My mate had one which showed how many puffs per day he used and the battery life.
