They should be well hung.....several days at least to improve the quality of the meat
Oh the remembered joys...
I was working in Saudi Arabia for BAe many moons ago and it was well known that you never flew on the same plane as the fitters as they had a habit of working their way round the cabin looking for things to fix. Used to drive the cabin crew frantic trying to stop them taking stuff apart but the passengers seemed to consider it as the in-flight cabaret
The way I read it is that all non-US data will be hosted in the EU. If a customer is non-EU and moves data in/out of that storage there is no problem as it is their data so Safe Harbour does not apply. The problems would only come if Dropbox move it without the customer asking them to.
Yep...I gave up with Google Translate and now use Reverso.net. Doesn't have so many languages but has much improved grammar and has a number of extras such as Conjucation, Spell check and contextual examples
or to quote Mythbusters...."it's all fun and games until someone loses an eyebrow - then it's science"
using the fading power of the car's battery which was shattered on impact or, as happened to me once, the frontal impact shunted the battery compartment just enough to snap the power leads.
I do hope they thought to require this unit has it's own power source. But not one of those Li-on batteries otherwise rather than save your life it could torch your car for you http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/04/29/boffins_blow_up_batteries_so_you_dont_have_to/
Have to agree, when was the last time that a US 'Force' stepped away from a planned action because it broke the law of the country it would take place in?
I used to have a huuuuge stack of the originals and the got skipped during a move....
Never mind the value, there was years or re-reading in them still
They actually do it properly on the left hand side of the pond. If you have an implement which could potential kill someone, no matter how remote the chance, then it is a deadly weapon.
Over here you have a mishmash which 'kind of' gets there with ...constructed, adapted or intended for use....says much the same but it is a little wordy and leaves loopholes where you may have to prove intent which is never easy.
What's that old saying?
Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind
There was me wondering whether they were being ironic by asking the questions but supplying their own sum of answers or really ironic by asking the questions and then saying 'who cares'.
I think you will find that in most cases it is uninsured because that way nobody knows you have it. A lot of high value stuff gets shifted around (including from country to country) to disguise ownership and to stop those pesky Taxmen knowing about them.
Then there is of course the stuff which may not be in the possession of the rightful owner....bit tricky to insure that stuff too.
It would be more appropriate for portions of Europe to join us on GMT as several (France/Spain/Portugal) either have the Greenwich meridian pass through them or they are West of the line.
This 'give up the time-shift' happens twice a year and normally is linked to the 'Use CET' sub-plot with the advantages to business forefront amongst the reasons but everyone saying that ignores the way that the US have a lot of time-zones and not only do they see no problem but they actually take advantage of them allowing a split office East/West coast to cover a much larger portion of the day without needing people to start early/stay late.
Story aside, that is a great photo....severe envy here as none of mine come out anything like that well
There were also telegraphic towers between Admiralty House in London and Portsmouth (not sure if they did Falmouth too)
So Apple are reducing their reliance on Samsung by using more Samsung derived components?
Hear hear....I have often said that there should be a 'none of the above' category on voting forms and if that gets the most votes then no MP is returned from that constituency. That would have a few of them shaking in their expenses-paid for 2nd home.
You missed an important part of the definition...
'obtains pecuniary advantage' ie either makes money by holding the item for ransom or saves money by not paying for using it. This is how they can define copying stuff as theft.
I think if you prefer a quill you are 'pre-trendy'. At least it is justification for having a pen-knife about your person
The LOHAN project used Kickstarter to get funding to help get a playmonaut launched but is it a failed project if their is a launchpad 'incident' resulting in a collection of puzzle parts? At that point most, if not all, the money would have been spent so how could there be a refund?
As said by many above, this is a system to help fund bold ideas which have a good chance of turning into something exciting, not a guarantee.
Well it could be the bit where you state in the takedown notice that 'you swear under penalty of perjury that the information is correct' or some such form of words.
The DMCA Takedown notice is a legal document and as such spraying them out randomly SHOULD lead to you being up before the beak yourselves. Of course the problem there is that once the first company gets hauled up then everyone else will have to turn off their spamming DMCA robot.
Oh wait....that's not actually a problem for the real world is it, more a bonus.
I upgraded my Q10 with none of the sound issues so I wonder how widespread this actually is.
Ooh look....a Police Helicopter
Sorry but unless it can run from salami then I'm not interested...
There is little difference between men and women.....vive la difference
and that is why I don't want a TV, I just want a large monitor....
cheaper, just as good a picture and I can run sound through a separate audio system to get good channel separation.
Oh yeah...and they are easier to take apart to look for microphones/cameras/whatever
One of my main tasks as an apprentice was to burn and mark the Proms/Eproms for a system. I learnt the hard way that when you varnish over the white ink used to mark them you should use normal varnish and a fine brush.....Spray varnish tends to coat the legs and form a perfect insulating layer......Oooops
Was going to Anon but the damage to my credibility was a long time ago so it's too late to be precious.
I have always preferred the OS maps because they exist to be maps rather than as a start point for all manner of add-on extras. So long as the online version holds to that then I see the OS getting a lot of trade from people who currently end up with three or four apps to cover driving/walking/etc. Even at a small charge this could get a good uptake.
.......This is nonsensical! If you've compromised someone's computer why would you bother sending them a phishing email?......
A very clear and simple rebuttal of the O2 response
I suspect that the FTC are not expecting them to be around that long.....charging over $200 for the game where there is probably a free equivalent online is not going to see much in the way of sales
Voice system called Cortana....browser called Spartan...Halo, is there a theme developing here? Just hope it is a Requiem for Windows
Surely it was looking for native life
Would that be a Man of Kent or a Kentish Man?
Actually you are completely incorrect as more countries drive on the left, it's just that the BIG countries do the reverse so most drivers doing it properly drive on the right.
Surely if they are trying to be cool and hip and trendy (delete as inappropriate) they should actually be called Innov8...
An example from the UK.....
it was made a specific offence to sit in the middle or right-hand lanes of a motorway or dual carriageway DESPITE this having been dealt with previously under existing legislation as 'driving without due care and attention'.
Why was it seen as such a problem? Could be down to the shift from police patrolling in cars over to fixed cameras focussing on speeding. Yes, it earned a lot of money from speeding fines but it did bog-all for all the other bad driving which cameras are bloody useless at spotting.
Currently these 'diverted profits' are written down as Franchise costs or IP costs etc etc. Why on earth does HMRC* think that they can produce a piece of legislation which achieves what they think they want? They have never managed it before and the multi-nationals have a lot more reasons to side-step the laws than HMRC* have to write them.
Can't wait for the first company to report every single purchase and salary payment they make throughout the year as diverted profit and drown HMRC in paperwork.
*OK, yes I know that technically it is not HMRC that write the laws but...
@Pascal...I think you missed it but @Dan was sharing the joys that you would have had with the rental version where you would never know until you launched it each day what extra functionality had been shoe-horned in FOR NO EXTRA CHARGE!!!!
This contrasts with the boring plodding of your 'owned' copy where everything is in the same place day after day and you don't get to spend hours exploring a twisty maze of passages all the same to find that obscure 'set line spacing to 2' option.
You know, one of those wild 'stab in the dark' things....but could this analysis in any way have been sponsored or supported by Microsoft?
Odd thought I know but it does kind of suggest that Microsoft are about to beat how Apple took on the consumer market when they released the iPhone. The Windows Phone OS may be good but I would like to see how much he would stake on his claims for it.
I presume everyone involved made a sanity check saving throw didn't they?
But if your main customer encourages you to stretch your goals to a new technology (maybe even sharing costs) to enable them to expand their range and then dumps you when it proves to be too much too soon, who bears the responsibility?
Especially when said main customer buys up the carcass for a song....
Taking that one step further.....
If the US Government do win here does it then give them a lever to pry open the box holding the 'off-shored' profits from those same 'US' Companies?
' but if you're familiar with the process on Linux, you should have no trouble'
If you have been using the process on Linux then why on earth would you be looking to run a limited version on Windows, especially when two articles across from this was how you need to put on a patch to stop users getting full Admin rights in Windows.
that BYOD is only one leg of the tripod. To go with it you have hardware that is totally owed and controlled by the business (currently the norm) and also owned by the business with a personal area (the inverse of BYOD).
If you start offering BYOD you need to balance it with the other options too or you are letting the tail wag the dog.
Just hope they didn't get too bent out of shape.
Yeah, I was going anyway
I cried when I read this...
and it took ages before I could stop laughing/cheering long enough to start typing.
From it's very first day I could never see this as anything other than an MitM vector waiting to be re-purposed
Except that if people are buying it through a comparison web-site you are missing the chance to have them accidentally buy all sorts of other services where they didn't notice that a tick in one place meant No while elsewhere it meant Yes.
Not a single mention in the article of Opera which may be a niche player these days but it played a significant part in pushing features now considered standard (tabs anyone?) but also kicked off the EU review of Microsoft bundling IE in the OS.
I have always said that MPs should be required to work to the HMRC Rules and Regs for Directors of Limited Companies. That would give very clear limits on what can be claimed and accountability.
Remind me...If someone chooses to be an MP where part of their job requires them to be in London, why does that permit them to buy a family home in London and charge the mortgage payments to the Tax-payer? All they are supposed to claim is expenses necessary to perform their job as an MP so why do they need more than a one bedroom flat for their time in London?
Ummm....#3 here. One drive, one disc, never really worked out why i let heart over-rule head.
Oh yeah, and I have (possibly had, we did some clearing recently) 8" floppy drive and discs too
