I'm sure that will be very comfortable to wear

... lasers produce a collimated beam, they are not focused.
Ah, but their special secret source made their product taste better. Or, .... not....
I don't see any adverts in the few emails to my gmail account. I think this is thanks to Adblock Plus, which is a plugin for Firefox and I have their app running on my Android phone and tablet. It's so long since I set everything up that I can't remember.
The "state sponsored" description is used to mean that the development effort, along with testing and insertion into the target would be so expensive as to require a very rich sponsor, i.e a state level backer.
I suppose that it's possible for a major banking trojan development group or a drugs cartel to finance this level of operation but it seems unlikely.
Many diabetics control their condition with tablets, certainly in the initial stages of the disease. I know my father did. Effective control in the early stages can help to lessen the rate of progress and will also reduce bodily damage, or at least slow down the effects. Continuous non-invasive monitoring would be a fantastic tool for any diabetic because they could respond to any medication need more often than at present and without having to prick their finger and smear blood on a test-strip.
It's as if the 'tile' becomes a small 'window', in which an application runs and you can have more than one of them on the screen at the same time. It's a paradigm shift!
It must have been significant to demand that two of his aides be given seats on the board?
I see that the sub-headitor had second thoughts.
It's a pun! Read it as ".... seizes design; reigns."
Something to do with attention to detail and personality. I may have misunderstood.
I'd be surprised if that 5+5 was applicable to the deal that Microsoft struck with the Queensland government. For such a large sale to a specific customer, the terms are easily negotiable. If it is, then they would probably make sure that five employees and their mobile devices were covered by each 'allowance'.
Win 7 removed the pop-out toolbars that XP had. I'm just glad I tried Linux and MATE (etc).
Is there a technical blog, or even a formal article anywhere that I could read to learn how to set up one of these cloudy platform service things? I understand the principles but have never done it. I don't mind paying a few pounds (or dollars) for a learning experience. I find that the explanations on the websites of these companies is very high level, without the detail I need.
(Many years ago, I set up an Apache server on a non-standard port on my home PC and made a mini-website to show a photo album; so I do have some technical ability but I do need to be told the details.)
"... BT's private fibre cables giving security-focused organizations ..."
Maybe GCHQ will be interested in using them?
Uh Kev, on the back of my computer the USB connectors are vertical. So does the seam go to the left or the right? Also, is that the computer's right or my right - viewed from which position and orientation?
You can install and then use any DE you like (selected on a button at the login screen). If you're used to Windows, I'd go for MATE, XFCE or LXDE in that order of decreasing 'power'. (They have pop-out toolbars, just like XP did, but which Win7 got rid of.) Try Cinnamon if you like; they are all free apart from the cost of your time and a bit of disk space. If you want a truly 'futuristic' experience, try KDE.
"Methane is a far more powerful greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, ..."
Flare it off?
... that they use exFAT to make the files compatible with any (thus many) Windows PCs that are used to read SD cards from an Android device or connect to an Android device?
Maybe he could do a job share with an openly gay co-CEO as his 'partner'. Maybe.
Ah, the budgie. I don't want to talk about it.
It's just resting.
I don't work in IT. I've never worked in IT (thank goodness). I can find TDC on my car engine (and used to) but nowadays I pay a mechanic to do that sort of thing for me. If my car broke down on the road, being able to find TDC would not help me to get it started. However, I do always carry a mobile phone and have a subscription to a recovery service, which is much more useful that knowing how to find TDC.
If I was the owner/director/manager of a company that relied on a computer controlled/related production line then I'd make damn sure that there was training, procedures and processes in place to deal with common/forseeable problems and breakdowns. Perhaps you prefer the 'keen amateur' approach to running a company which clients and employees depend on?
They run a production line, which I assume is somehow important or even vital and is somehow dependent on computers and the internet. Despite this, they can't be bothered to learn what an IP address is??
Do they mean the local culture and 'social norms' would feel this was too intrusive? I thought that Singapore was a place where the government forbids you to chew gum and forces 'long' haired males to have a haircut before they can enter the country.
Can anyone who knows Singapore well comment on this?
When a lawyer and a patent troll are hanging at every crossroad.
" ...his revelations about NSA spying tactics are assisting authoritarian government, ..."
The CIA don't like people muscling-in on their patch.
With the S-pen and a proper handwriting recognition app, this would be great for note taking. Are there any apps out there that can do that? I realise that for me especially, some 'proper' handwriting would be needed.
" ... anyone but the nominal operator of the drone being responsible for its movements."
Or the government, secretly taking it over to carry out some covert activity. Oh, you meant legally responsible?
Do you have a working model of such an apparatus? Oh, .... I'm being old fashioned again, sorry.
" ... both Samsung and Nokia have filed patents for using graphene in mobile devices, and that Apple, Saab, and Lockheed Martin have also filed for or received patents on graphene use."
I'll file patents for use of graphene in spaaaace! Then sue anyone who copies my brilliant IP.
And they were fixing its flaws every month until it officially 'died'. For how many years will Microsoft be sending out essential security patches to Win7 and then Win 8?
You are now Simon :) Well done and thank you for sharing your experiences with us. We look forward to similar articles in the future.
"I think you probably twisted it around a bit."
I think that twisting it around a bit could be dangerous too :)
Note: If it's reversible, then the ground will be on the centre connector(s) and the 20VDC will be on the outer connectors (or vice versa). For this type-C connector, that would give less than 2mm gap between ground and power, with some data connector strips between the power connectors.
... who would feel nervous about sending 100W through a connector that is so small and puny and a dust trap?
It sounds very informal. Can I call them and tell them to start accepting Bitcoins again?
As a matter of interest, how many 'user seats' were there and what were the licensing cost savings compared to continuing with (I assume) Windows? Did the users have any problems or difficulties adapting to the new system? etc....
The tail blocks the view of the rear light so it isn't 'street legal' at the moment. Also, it will need white lights shining from its eyes.
On a separate note, I have a background feeling that much of that video was 'rendered' from CAD models, except for the woman who could have been added in.
I followed that link and you definitely 'foretold' it. 'Foreshadowing' is much more subtle and spooky.
" ... or even Linux," he said, ...
Is it my imagination or does he sound surprised?
"... This could delay an alarm going off if there was a real fire ..."
It seems that it's not _cancelling_ an existing alarm that is the issue. It actually _disables_ the alarm; it would seem.
How do I go about getting a USAID box? I really want to try one.
It would be more useful and a better comparison to know how much bigger it was than our own _galaxy_. Can anybody offer a figure?
From what we've seen of government, that would need much more than a year of planning, feasibility studies, pilot projects, budget reallocations, staff changeovers, consultancy swaps, re-specification, ............
Definitely a 'carrier of Death'; and he does it so well.
It does say 'build and _secure_', so maybe it's a reinforced underground bunker with dual redundant power generation and underground storage tanks for a year of fuel?
I thought you meant Sarah. My heart beat a little faster for a few seconds. (But, you meant 'Beeb'.)
... you can't use entanglement to send information between two places instantaneously (in the sense of sending a bit stream representing the letter 'A', for example), but you can use it to send information between two places (at the speed of photons) in such a way that nobody can intercept or listen in to the data transfer without the end parties being aware that this is happening. Hence its potential for use in very secure data networks.

@ Charlie Clark
If it's only 6 years old, can't you give it more memory?
Just as a matter of interest, two months ago I bought a Kingspec 32GB 2.5" IDE/PATA _SSD_ for my old laptop. It cost me £40 on e-bay from a Chinese supplier. It works fine, but I'm not sure for how long, and it's given a speedy and silent new lease of life to my 8 year old laptop.
Good idea with the virtual machine solution. As long as it's just network connections that are needed it should be simple to do.
