Operation Apple Tree
Surely a determined national security threat could design something that would ruin the first bird that came into contact with it. We need a mechanical way of bringing down dangerous drones and maybe at the same time re-deploy the eagles to hunt down the operator and claw their eyes out?
Alternatively they could provide the eagles with steel nets that could be 'dropped' onto a drone of any current size and bring it down without harm to the bird.(possibly a risk to anyone underneath but you can't win em all)
The left field idea would be to fit Air to Air missiles to the birds and maybe a go pro to monetize drone destruction.
Must be a really keen potato farmer. See Icon
That'll stop the terrorists.
Here I am shouting my ass off at bt and virgin to provide me with a faster dl than 3mbps for 5 years now and meanwhile a moving target millions of miles away is about to get a faster uplink than me. This isn't fair I've much more interesting things to stream.
There might be a cure for you depending on the type of colour blindness that affects you.
Take a look
From the released photo it looks like it has a power cord and a mains transformer attached. Last time I heard of anyone making a bomb I'm sure they didn't need to plug it in first.
As you have proven sir, the most popular people are those who sit on the fence! :)
Hello Chrysler owner,
I noticed your shiny car in the drive and thought I'd send you a usb stick with the fix.
Please ignore the other USB stick as we sent you this in error.
G'day flip, your picking up a surge in solar geomagnetic activity that might launch a CME towards earth that will wipe out all television and internet news except for the BBC news because nothing in this universe can halt their B.S?
I'm sorry but the other media outlets appear to be reporting that the banks would only "consider" moving their "registered" offices leaving scottish jobs intact. Why does El-Reg have a different slant to this?
Perhaps the Met were just using the Booleen method. False OR True = True
Ideally we should redraw the Scottish border around Downing Street and Westminster then poll for independence. I would love to see that become a separate state
I suspect all El-Reg reporters are down the pub by now but where is your "OMG Facebook is down! Twitter goes nuts" article?? Unless this is another large scale experiment by Zuckerburg to test how powerful he is & see which media outlets feel the need to report on his company's every sneeze. In which case well played and go back to (*edit) your real life social networking.
Science is always the victim.
I suspect though given the NSA's narrow definition of an ordinary citizen that we can all expect our data to be de-duped to say about 1 pB worth of mince with the remaining non-conformists offered another NSA service that finds them & brings them in for a face to face meeting.You won't find me signing up for love nor money!
--------------------------I'm glad those fools are trying to be seen to do something to improve their image. :)
Ad Billboard? Look to your left/right/up and down.
She's a boffin?
Not even George Orwell predicted that people would walk around with cameras attached to their heads
The video shows a fully inflated parafoil on the ascent and most of the weather balloon videos ive watched imply payloads will be subjected to rapid spinning.
The only thing missing is a wad of cash & a way to discretely distribute the drugs around europe. Oh wait!
I suspect there are people who doubt he actually "landed" that punch.
I'd hate to see what happens when they try more than 10 degrees of bank on this aircraft.
I suspect when they run this past their aeronautical engineers the wings will be forced into a dihedral shape, the surface area will have to be increased, a larger vertical stabilizer with a boom or extended body for the elevators and hey presto it becomes a ...oh!
@ Mystic Megabyte
You remind me of my old physics teacher once wrote a similar quip "Carrots per second?" against one of my answers in a test paper. I resubmitted my test paper with a note declaring that anyone marking this should have been contextually aware and clearly this comment was written by a buffoon who was not in the same frame of reference.
My test score did not change. :( Spooky cause I knew that was coming.
Much like the economic recovery, the universe is a big bubble and what we are seeing is the intergalactic equivalent of a bursting bubble. I recon we should prepare a mix of fairy liquid, water, epoxy & Uranium 235 and launch an intergenerational mission to repair the burst.
at 17meters long it is conceivable to be around 10,000 tons.
It would have to be very hollow to be only just 10 tons.
Perhaps we should launch some sort of gravity probe with several high speed gyroscopes to determine & map the differences in Gravity between to places on earth.
We then should take these results and combine these with altitude & air pressure measurements to determine if the variance is due to these environmental factors.
That's up there with headlines such as.
"Woman awarded OBE for her contribution to 'driving efficiently'"
"Husband finds out wife's credit card transactions were for 'very useful items'"
"Angela Merkel returns from Greek holiday to find Germany has left the Euro"
"Cops cuff woman for speeding in her tractor- she admits "trying to get home so her man wouldn't find the fridge was empty""
It's ironic then that they are owned by a storage company
I heard that digital cinemas were using this technology as much as 5 years ago to embed meta information into every film shown. This is later used to track pirated films & identify crimbos.
My Reply:Send me half the money and I'll do it myself, save you the risk.
Terminator - Cause I cannot self fornicate...or is it terminate?
Imagine the rebuild time on that drive.
What a scandal.
I think news international should employ spies to get to the hard facts, the HP board would never see them coming.
I'm bored of this discussion.
It will, and the title will be "404 Error Page not found"
Could this solve cold fusion? Could we design a meta-material that absorbs hydrogen and fuses them together simply by a series of metafolds releasing untold heat in the process?
Yes that right folks- its CGI augmented with a guy that has a fake facebook profile.
This should help those who think its real.
Plus he's been uploading videos for over a year on this project and his first one was titled 1 of 14.
How did he know he was going to make 14 videos before his first successful flight unless he had a friggin time machine.
I wonder if the missus would like cash in our mortgage deposit in exchange for a 3d tv.
Can't wait to upgrade my SSD to a good old HDD.

Way back in the Mid 80s Apple had the Deathstar blueprint as their logo.
I'm rooting for a combination of space/time dialation at and inbetween the two sites.
Compliance Storage?- Centera by EMC.
Storage space issues?- De-dup - any of the top storage vendors.
Policy/culture issues? - deploy vitality training highlighting the cost savings of weeding old data.
when it bursts it will launch
Someone has taken the KSC tour a little too seriously. :P
