Change the targets
Go after the illegal drivers.
I'm sure a few lost driving licenses and heavy fines would reduce the number of drivers Uber have on their books.
Organised crime is in the wrong business
"Under its proposals, authors would be banned from accepting a one-time fee in contracts with producers ..."
What gives these people the right to tell authors that they have to sign up to their system.
If I wrote a book it's up to ME to decide whether to take a one-off payment or an annual dripfeed (less the collection agency expenses).
Hope the airlines grow a pair
The airlines should call the Mexicans bluff and refuse to fly there.
I'm sure that a campaign by customers to boycott anybody who gives up YOUR information would concentrate their minds.
Re: I sincerely hope
or the cash being donated by Bill Gates et al.
Stick to your guns
I hope he doesn't settle out of court and that it establishes case law in a "proper" legal system.
Re: Extend the mission time
Extend the mission time
Why not add a system to use the methane as a power source and extend the 90 day mission time ?
Just make sure you don't end up with ---->

Virgin Media's turn to serve to BT in ASA tennis.
Paris coz, well do I have to spell it out ?

Well done that man
Have a pint (sorry there's no milk icon)

Re: My prediction
Good luck serving the summons for non-payment
That explains why England have been sh*t recently
Well, I hope so, Blackadder. You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!
What else is out there ?
An elliptical orbit needs 2 focii.
One is the sun but what are at the other focii which cause the dwarf planets to come back towards us ?
"... allowing K-Glass wearers to check out restaurant menus and other information by standing outside and looking at the name of a particular eatery."
Rather than looking at the menu displayed in the window. Isn't technology great ?
Re: Chances of that?
Million-to-one chances crop up nine times out of ten.
Am I missing something here ?
Surely if it's an "unlicensed money transmitting business" then he's not covered by the Bank Secrecy Act ?
Design flaw ?
What about area in the middle of the chest not covered by the suit ?
Perfect job opening for 3 wise monkeys
Do you really think that the top management would listen to the concerns of the staff at the coalface ?
Besides which, saying that the emperor has no clothes could well be career-limiting move.
Re: Why the diificulty?
There's an awful lot cables going into Oman and UAE.
We're very friendly with both countries and have a long history of military co-operation with Oman going back 60 years.
Voyager is perfectly placed to see what happens at the edge of the solar system.

In other news ...
A bear goes into the woods with a newspaper and says "I may be some time"
Daleks again. YAWN.
And if they fail in court ...
you can be damned sure that ABC, NBC et al will be making the appropriate election contributions to get the law changed to their liking.
Yeah sure, U / A and K / E are so close together on the keyboard
MS, FOAD !!
That is all.
Re: Good job he wasn't a diplomat
He also visited Dachau concentration camp whilst with the RAF.
I think that might have a slight bearing on his feelings towards Germans ...
You single-handedly brought the cosmos alive for so many people and are owed a huge debt of gratitude by British astronomy.
There's a new star in heaven but the night sky is darker.
Re: Reader Question
Frank - as in zapper
@Chris W - Get your facts right
The Met identified the wrong man as their subject and given the bombings of the previous day were very jumpy.
After the shooting the police repeated gave misleading accounts to muddy the water.
Look at the photo on this page and tell me that's a bulky coat.
BBC reports that it's her PA. Is the noose tightening ?
Why not build a court house in Sadville so all these virtual war criminals can be put on trial.
Alternatively, just FOAD.

@ Brainless cretins ...
Tell me how to think for myself
Or to turn this on its head
Why not ban anybody under the age of 18 from accessing the web ?
That way the problem is with the parents to police (and has as much chance of succeeding as the ISP doing it).
That's you banned from the USA
that is all
Reminds me of a song
When Irish (brown) eyes are smiling ...
England are flying back into Glasgow
... that way they're assured of a hero's welcome
Fit somebody up like a kipper

Forget the meeting with David Geffen, the most pertinent part of the report is
" ... also envisage a more powerful, direct role for Lord Mandelson."
Lord Mandy is a power grabbing freak who created the current Government's love of having all power in Whitehall.
Taking it to the ECHR will tie the original case up in litigation for a few more years and allow TPB time to get even more MEPs and overturn the copyright law.
