But I want it!
Schrodinger's cat is <blink>not</blink> dead.
Okay, okay, I'm going, I'm going.
It'll never happen.
Far too sensible, and it might work.
Finally, a way to educate the clueless, and make money at the same time! I'll be sending my details through to you immediately!
Please excuse me
while I hide in my bunker and completely fail to panic.
When you've finished beating each other to death I shall come out and enjoy the peace.
"RIANZ has also told NZ Radio it believes installing a BitTorrent client is proof that an individual is sharing files illegally."
Much like living in New Zealand is proof that you have intimate relations with farm animals.
What we need now is for the likes of Redhat and Canonical to sue RIANZ. I don't know the legal mumbo-jumbo required, but surely they can pillory RIANZ over the statement.
I don't get it
What is with these GNOME devs? Between cutting episodes they have some therapy, this being the latest lot of razor-action.
In the meantime we're all aghast and saying to them, 'Why? Why are you doing this to yourself? We liked you the way you were before!'
Maybe I'm just too old and jaded; perhaps they want to vanish into obscurity. Whatever it is they're certainly flailing about a lot.
Re: Vibrating pen? Interesting.
It doesn't have to be very big to be used for toggling the bit.
Paris: I'm sure she gets her bit toggled all the time.
Re: Software Developers
It took you 5 years? I don't think I lasted 5 months!
"It somewhat ironic that the drive to extreme thinness would take guts, hmm?"
I salute you sir.
I've been planning on throwing my crap out...
... and I could use the services of your wife. If you want a little break, send her over to the Land Down Under, and I'll put her to good use.
This is just for computer stuff mind, the car stays.
I hate to rain on the parade...
but L1 is unstable. Not only do you need to get this mass of rocks into position, but you then have to expend energy to keep them in position. I'm pretty sure those rocks aren't going to be light.
Re: Don't forget the DIY stuff.
That's good and all, but that still doesn't let you export Linux instances. I mean sure, you can run the VMDK with anything that can read it, which happens to include KVM, but that's no good if you can't extract the image in the first place.
Engage the footgun!
If Apple wants to claim that HSDPA+ is 4G then my Galaxy Tab (original) that I've had for a year is 4G, using the Optus network.
The reality is that only Telstra has LTE, and the only phone I know of that can use it is a special Galaxy SII that only Telstra sells.
Re: Re: Not just maturity ...
Yeah, but if it wasn't for the renumbering, those kernel releases would be 22.214.171.124 and 2.6.43-rc4.
It gets funnier
Cricket Australia have a special deal with VHA (Vodafone and 3), where Vodofone gets to transmit the games live to their subscribers. The even have naming rights to the test series.
CA even tried to force the state bodies to use Vodafone as their carrier of choice, unsuccessfuly in the case that I was intimately familiar with.
The Android version works really well on my Galaxy Tab (original). Using the Smart Hub feature on the Bluray player is made much easier when you can use the tablet without reference to what's being displayed on the TV.
Being able to search YouTube for music and start playing it while in the other room is great, and text entry is so much easier than using the IR remote.
I just wish it was possible to remotely turn on the TV and Bluray player, but I guess you can't have everything.
More than amazing.
These things are crazy. I play BF3, and explosions going off nearby make the headphones shake, giving your ears a bit of a tickle.
The best part is the noise isolation. While playing games or music at a reasonable volume you can't hear someone next to you shouting, and when playing at a head massaging volume, no-one can hear what you're listening to until you take them off your ears.
Basically, these are just wireless G35s with a bit more oomph. Definitely recommend.
That's no S2
Based on the "Near Field Communications" written on the battery, I'm guessing its a Galaxy Nexus.
I had to do a double take because my S2 doesn't look anything like that with the battery cover off.
Facebook will learn the hard way to not annoy its product. The lesson may be too late.
Also, switching to the Queen's own English doesn't work anymore. I've been using en_GB for a while now, and this morning noticed that my feed has been infected with this 'feature'.
In Australia the taxes for a product are the same across the entire country. Sure, there's the Luxury Tax, fuel, alcohol and cigarette excises, but the rates are consistent. I don't pay a different rate of tax in Brisbane to someone living in Ballarat.
I see your point though. We can always ignore them and let them strangle themselves in claim and counter-claim while we move forward.
Yeah, I seem to remember it too.
There's been a couple like that lately.
Still far from excellent though.
I haven't looked at all the specs, but wouldn't comfort noise be generated on the receiving end? I seem to remember reading something that said the transmitting end just has to transmit packets that indicate that it has nothing of worth to send but really is still there.
Warning because I may be talking out of my arse...
So Apple have changed the 'standard four-wire SATA power connector'. Well, looks like everyone else has too, because no SATA drive I have ever clapped eyes on has had only 4 pins on the power connector.
Is it just me...
that thinks that if Bionic violates the GPL, so does glibc. the LGPL isn't the GPL.
Lots of noise about nothing.
Not malicious, not political.
Microsoft cannot comply with the GPL, LGPL, or AGPL, and these terms reflect that. It has nothing to do with malicious intent, and everything to do with legality.
I'm sure Microsoft would like to have these apps in there store, but these licenses don't allow that to happen with the way their app store is at the moment. If there was a way that the store could distribute the source code, I'm sure the restrictions would vanish.
I just wish people would think before bashing away at their keyboards in a religious fervor.
From the article: "Right now, you can't buy a multi-core smartphone."
You can however, get dual-CPU smart phones.
I have a phone with dual ARM9 CPUs running at 264MHz, and another with dual ARM11 CPUs running at 332MHz. The Nokia N96 and N95 respectively.
Forget the machines
We'll be killed by the Rise of the Animals before the Rise of the Machines prototype is finished.
I thought the patent system was only there to protect software and business methods.
Plan vs Implementation
As a former Java ME developer, I didn't have a problem with Java ME itself, but with the various implementations.
Nokia (Series 40 and 60) and Sony Ericsson were the best ones, with the least painful quirks, the rest were rubbish.
To save Java ME, you have to bend the implementers over the table with the red hot poker until they get it right.
Re: good reporting
"just think of how good it would have been with out the snarky, smart ass comments"
Pretty boring actually. Aren't the smart ass, errr donkey, errr arse comments exactly why we read El Reg in the first place?
"The vulnerability has existed since April 2008, when Sun introduced the Java Web Start feature in Java 6, update 10."
They introduced Web Start in Java 1.4, they updated it in 6u10. The question becomes, does this mean users of Java 5 are safe?
