I can still remember buying the very first copy of 2000ad with the red 3 pronged spinny boomerang thing on the front. Oh how I wish I hadn't opened / read / used it.

As much as an MS fanboi that i am,

why do I get a bad feeling about this.

Much like UEFI, I cant help but feel this is a way to tie folks into something further down the line.

Like the app store for example..

Not to mention it will ultimately be cracked....

Or am I just being old and cynical...

Re: He did not commit the other crime

Can the police not be trained to shoot at his lower leg, AIR, the cop fired about 8 shots. Truly hope all 8 hit their target because one stray bullet is capable of taking out an innocent passer-by...

Its like fucking idiot drivers on the road, they seldom consider the consequences their stupidity will have on others...

Re: He did not commit the other crime

And given he was seen placing the Taser next to the "perp" and then claiming the "perp" stole his Taser and run off with it, did little to help the case. As I recall, it was only the fact that a passer-by was surreptitiously recording the incident that the cop’s testimony could be proved false. Else this would have been a "his word against mine" and AS the perp was black and the cop was white then the fall out could have been a lot worse. One less trigger happy and corrupt, lying, deceitful plod off the street.

I am still so glad we dont routinely arm the UK dibble...

of the American police to shoot first and then try and justify doing so, this bloke is lucky, especially as he continued to approach the officer in a combative "mood"...

Another vapour-ware

battery story...

Its gonna be at least 3 years (IMHO) until ANY of the improved battery tech that's been touted for the last 5 years will be ready for the market.

I have some NiMh AA cells that are almost 3000mAh. That's a phenomenal power density for something as big as a little finger. Especially as its re-usable.

That needs doubling, anything less is a waste of research £$€......

Not gonna hold my breath for this. Umpteen battery improvement stories later and not a bit of useful kit has entered the consumer market...

Smart meters are a ‘costly mistake’ that'll add BILLIONS to bills

cornz 1

This:

the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has refused to publish them, citing commercial sensitivity.

So, the upshot is this, the vast majority of the public will be hoodwinked into these meters because the government will dare not see another IT project fall flat on its arse...

They will do EVERYTHING in their power to complete this roll out.

How many times have independent scientists shown the government true stats only to have them brushed aside or removed from office....

They are coming. Be prepared to defend against them... Tinfoil at the ready...

The very fact

that "Apps" are something new to them, is indicative of the pace at which these bodies seem to trundle along. There is no wonder the UK IT infrastructure is the turgid mess it is in at the moment.

They seem to operate behind several iterations of the public and technology.

Ship out all the old cronies who still believe that travelling over 30 mph will kill you and replace it with some younger blood who have a vague idea of what it is they are talking about.
