Talk for yourself - I like it this way.
One could say that the red ink exploded all over the balance sheet but that would be like clutching quill pens.
This is more like a strange Americanism changing the meaning of words as normal even if it is wrong.
Re: You gotta be kidding
Rik, are you a physicist or an engineer or are you just regurgitating the 'Mann made global warming' gospel?
I ask because, while you ramble on about radiative forcing it is obvious that you know nothing about how it has been applied in climate 'science'. The earth is not a black body by any stretch of the imagination and neither can the CO2 molecules be treated as such. Yet this is what the global warming 'science' is based on.
Now I expect the warming cult followers will down vote this because they are either blindly following or just don't have a clew.
Re: Of course it's possible...
I use a phone for talking to people and a computer for doing things on the net.
I wonder how many people realise that they are working overtime by reading and answering work related e-mails and calls out of normal working hours.
When they start knocking them out and selling them for 15 to 20 quid each I might be interested enough in trying one - not before.

It would also help if the noise that passes as music today was, in fact, musical.
Re: I sea swelling
Ah! The missing heat going into the deep ocean without warming any upper ocean on the way down. Magic.
Re: I sea swelling
@Big_Ted, All that article does is try to keep the scam going. A single statistical model MIGHT show that there is a pause that MIGHT, or MIGHT NOT, continue - that is not science that is religion.
There is NOT ONE of the models that have been produced by the climate science religion that actually fit measured temperatures - even those that they have fiddled with to try and get the past to fit a bit better still do not predict correctly the future.
Re: Wow, it's just skyrocketing!
Not very surprising since your average person buying a new computer can only get win 8 on it with no way of backleveling to win 7 - at least that is what I see here and I assume it is the same in other countries.
One does have to ask why an American that has nothing directly to do with the UK has been given this award. The answer might be that there are people in the FCO that still consider the US to be a British colony.
Re: An MP was shocked
That is the only way 'Hodge the dodge' can deflect scrutiny of her own behaviour.
Martin, I think you missed the point. Most business computers do not need microphones plugged in, their use is not part of the work load and in an industrial situation they would be a liability.
On the other hand what a person does in their own time at home is an entirely different matter and is their responsibility.
Re: Which isn't a bad thing
Ah, you mean like Windows.
SF leads the way
The author Rosie Oliver has a series of stories about cyber cats - C.A.T.
Re: Apple's definition of "invention"
Only in America!
The lack of planets could be due to the fact the builders haven't got there yet ;)
Maybe this will end up so that google.fr doesn't keep popping up on everything to do with Google. It is damn annoying when half of a blogger site comes up in French and I want English.
And the real answer is.... a STYLUS. That way fat fingers don't hit two, or more, things at once.
Re: Sounds like a fringe use case?
@I ain't Spartacus, I have to agree with you re the stylus. I still use my Entourage eDGe (10.1" model) for that very reason, it has a Wacom stylus, even if it does weigh in at 1.5kg.
Lest we forget
Weren't there some climate change 'scientists' recently airlifted from their 'research vessel' that got stuck in the ice down there?
If Bitcoins are proved to be 'subject to seizure' under federal forfeiture laws, then isn't the government saying that they are legal currency? In other words would the fed be making a rod for their own backs?
Re: the header bar.
I must agree with you about that. In fact they appear to be going back to the DOS command prompt.
As I see it the GUI is becoming dumber over time as well as clunky in appearance. Maybe if they did something like making a clone of the OS/2 active desktop they would have something to boast about as well as a desktop that actually worked.
Pedant. Actually AC 10:20 they are TOEING the line.
Other than that I agree with you.
Re: File Size?
@AC 03:40, English is second or third language maybe.
Re: Good on Australia
Aus was always considered as the 52nd state of the US when I was there in the 50s, 60s and 70s.
No industry experience
While the concept is interesting it is obvious that the researchers have no industrial experience at all.
You do not use laptops to control industrial machinery and in almost all cases there are no microphones plugged in - there is the odd exception where you are doing sound analysis but that has other constraints regarding OS and software used.
Since this is touted as something that can cross the air gap in industrial situations the researchers need to work in the industrial situations before going off half cocked like script kiddies. Industry uses laptops only in the front office NOT out on the shop floor where the actual work is done.
When they have found a way of turning things like power supply transformers into acoustic transducers for both transmission and reception of ultra sound they might have something to shout about, until then it is an interesting toy.
Re: Identify the rival ads!
That would be the ideal solution.
...the best thing would be for Google to have an option that allowed filtering out all the price comparison sites. Then, when looking for information on something, we wouldn't have to wade through pages of comparison sites that tell you nothing.
Re: Don't Panic!
Isn't that true for ALL microsoft OS?
Re: Please Google, use the Nuclear Option!
Other search engines???????
Re: Whistle = Blow this!
And what is actually wrong with going to google.com rather than google.fr? I live in France and have to explicitly set search to google.com and then there are times it doesn't stick which is damned annoying.
Re: Poisonous fungi
Very good advice, but down here in the French pyrenees I was told to go to the local chemist shop and they would sort any I found - they do, at no cost.
Re: Sorry to be so blunt...
@I ain't Spartacus
Your predicament highlights the need for a stylus pen for use on all pads and phones, then there would not be the problem with fat fingers (or even grease/sweat marks on the screen).
Re: Cost millions ...
I expect one day, next millennium maybe, the US will learn how to secure their computers but I think it would be very foolish yo hold ones breath until they do.
Wild Bill, I think you are looking for a firewall that stops all outgoing traffic until you OK it. I seem to remember there was ZoneAlarm for windows years ago that did that.
Re: Legal Protections
Does that apply to Apple as well? After all they seem to be the ones that cause the patent spats by not paying for what they want.
Stand by for the Daily Mail to start another campaign to censor the internet because of this.
Re: Psst, big biz, want an all-flash Windows Server box?
My reaction exactly.
Did you miss out the <sarc> tags?
Re: Bad Banks Better?
That must be a good thing then, after all there is no way windows malware will run on OS/2 and I very much doubt the script kiddies know how to write anything that would work there.
American National Intelligence? Humm.
He must be a puppet, his mouth moves.
Re: Here we go again
@ Darryl. Which does rather prove the point that winpho is conspicuous by its absence.
I wonder how much this is to satisfy the EU that are breathing down Samsung's neck at the behest of Apple, Microsoft etc.?
Re: Is it because of Ballmer
All that proves is that what he has isn't real money - actual cash in the bank - but fake money that depends on the apparent worth of the shares he has in different companies.
Humm... don't they get the free WiFi in the lower part of the village then? I can get it from my terrace if I want it as have most of those on holiday in the old part, although they either sit in a window or out in the road because of the signal loss through the stone walls. It would have saved you having to borrow Bruno's WiFi.
As was hinted at in the article this is not for anything Apple is going to use, it is just a way for them to try and get money from Android phone manufacturers.
There is prior art in that you can already do that on android phones and no one bothered to try and patent it because it is just an obvious extension of NFC usage, but we have to remember this is an Apple patent, Therefore will never follow logic and it will be as wide ranging as possible just to mess with any opposition.
Why is everyone assuming that these 8 core chips are for phones?
We now have several of the large players putting ARM chips on servers where the more cores the better. Plus the fact this guy is ex-intel so thinking of anything other than intel on servers is a no-no. Therefore his statement is not surprising when viewed from that standpoint.
I have to ask this (I also know it will get a lot of down votes) but who in their right mind uses a browser foe email? Maybe it has become the fashion now to use html in emails, again, why?
Re: Isn't patent farming the usual start of the decline of a corporation? I'm thinking Kodak
Maybe a better example would be SCO.
