"Everybody's talking about the weather but nobody's doing anything about it."
Charities aren't allowed to get involved in politics as such.
I hope it turns out to be one of the "Great Firewall" advocates.
The customer is king
Remember, Facebook users: you're not the customers. The advertisers are the customers; you're the products.
speeding fines = tax on stupidity
The cameras are painted yellow. There are signs ahead of them with camera icons. The only legitimate gripe speeders might have is that speed limits are not as well signposted in the UK as they are in some other places (USA, for example).
as the Bard of Salford said
"I've seen the poison letters of the horrible hacks
About the yellow peril and the reds and the blacks
And the TUC and its treacherous acts
Kremlin money, all right Jack
I've seen how democracy is under duress
But I've never seen a nipple in the Daily Express"

"Why aren't we as good as Gmail?"
Must be all that dog food. (Gmail's servers run a real OS, don't they?)
method to asymmetrically authenticate a message
AIUI, the private key has to be accessible during signing, right? So it's in the camera.
the usual rip-off
Looks like the usual British rip-off wi-fi that costs (per hour) many times what I pay for a high-speed wired connection at home. Airports in Eastern Europe: free wi-fi. British airports: rip-off. British hotels: usually rip-off (the big chains are the worst; independent ones usually include it in the room rate).
the point is to make up for the market's deficiencies
The purpose of public broadcasting is to cover the gaps that the market won't. Remember that the commercial operators' serve their customers --- and the customers are NOT us viewers, but the advertisers.
The BBC hasn't helped its own cause by pandering for ratings, though.
give them books instead
Brown (or at least his advisers) should read Aric Sigman's _Remotely Controlled_ and aim to *reduce* kids' screen time. Give them books instead, and encourage their parents to read to kids too.
Doesn't clearing cookies interrupt this?
as required for landlines?
"...as landline companies are required to give data to home phone directories."
Huh? My land line isn't in the phone directory.
