Re: It's basically a licence to print money
Not even governments can be trusted with that kind of responsibilty!
Fixed that for you
Re: So when this thing goes haywire...
No, we must take off, and nuke the site from orbit... It's the only way to be sure.
Whatever happened to the good old fashioned method of writing on your wrist, under your watch?
Kids these days. Pheh.
>not exiting consumer market - just 'refocusing'
Exactly like an army doesn't retreat, just attacks in a different direction. Preferably away from the enemy.
Is it me, or does it remind you of an Alienware laptop? - Overstyled, and overpriced.
This'll be cracked in 3....2.....1.....
Well, Dr. Who was fun while it lasted.
As if I don't already have a complete fake persona for this kind of idiocy.
Marketeers, say hello to Ivor Pseudonym. Hes honoured to make your acquantaince.

Don't you mean wHil wHeaton?
Unless he hasn't actually got control of his chair/voicebox, and it is all being operated by remote control by some nefarious black hat...
Re: Wembley Police (Met) have made the same mistake
They're the police, since when did the law ever apply to them?
(Regardless of official lines spouted by the head honcho)
Re: Ah, brings back memories
Yeah, but you had to trudge through 3 feet of snow to school, 7 miles away, uphill both ways.
Then, you had to go and work a 27-hour day down the coal mine, just to buy your family a single potato to eat.
It weren't all sunshine and moonbeams, sweetheart.
No, that's far to easy to guess. It must be something highly secure that no-one would guess, like 1234#...
Personally, mine are indestructible, given my propensity to massacre them after a few months usage, so these seem like they wouldn't las a week.
Plus, mine have braille-type bumps on the left 'stem', which comes in handy -- I don't even look at them any longer.
Wasn't that to do with the Americans, and their little "Hurr durr everything runs on imperial because we say so" issue?
Only if C.M.O.T. Dibbler exsists in MeatSpace.
I've said it before, and i'll say it again...
Why the HELL are these connected up to a web-facing network? Sounds like something even a secondary-school student would catch as a security risk.
Fine, keep it on an intranet, with maybe a VPN login if you really need it, but this? It just smacks of slap-dash development.
Yes, because American laws really apply outside the US, don't they?
I got that email...
It was so badly done, it's a wonder even those few fell for it.
If only we had a reuseable craft with a large enough bay to fit a satellite in. We could just nip up, grab it, and have it back down to the russians before beer 'o clock.
Probably built in someones shed.
Is it just me, or is the CSF2 held together with that old stalwart of British engineering -- string?
That is all.
It has begun.
"Do no evil" has morphed into "Do evil, but only surreptitiously".
We all knew this day would come.
No, no, no, no, NO!
It needs to be directed by Uwe Boll.
The title is required
It was the Cyber-Police!!!
You cannot stop Judgement Day!
You can only postpone it!
*Climbs into bunker*
Wait, are those...
I would like a PSP 2 with two nubs, an L2 & R2, and enough grunt to play PS2 games, perhaps backed up by a store selling PSP 2 ports/versions of said games.
Does this have anything to do with all those books they scanned a while back?
Just a thought.
"PayPal has shut the account WikiLeaks used to take donations, saying that the site violated its terms of service."
"Amazon claims its decision was not in response to a government inquiry, while EveryDNS said it booted WikiLeaks because of heavy DDoS attacks directed at the site"
I am just waiting...
...Waiting, until they find an 'excuse' to 'accidentally' delete their DNS records.
Long Live WikiLeaks!
*puts on sunglasses*
Initiating Mobile Phone Tracer...
Gold. Pure Gold.
Keep up the work, or I will hunt you down, and turn you into a christmas-themed hat made from simon-skin...
If they get this patent, all my dreams for awesome laptops with touch-screens are going flying out the window.
I just hope the patent troll/hideously-deformed-creature/overweight-american has enough common sense to turn it down.
Who am I kidding, of course they'll approve it. *Mutters, contemplates murder*
Im a bumpkin, with broadband (Or so they claim ... 2mbps/20 does not broadband make.)
They even had the cheek to ring up and complain that I was using what I'd payed for!
You just can't win.
We can rebuild it...
We have the technology.
Big Brother is watching from above...
National Geographic, The BBC, CNN, and CCTV will provide coverage of this historic race.
This is my title. Happy now?
"a pledge to delete British data "as soon as reasonably possible"."
As soon as we can get all the useful bits from it.
Kill it! Kill it with FIRE!!
I have handled one for a few days, and I /still/ can't work out what it is for.
It is basically a giant iTouch, anything that i can do on it, i can either do on my iTouch, or my laptop. As far as I can see, apple have created a niche for their product where one didnt exist.
How is this possible?
We are all living under one massive ConDem Nation.
I initially though that this would be a version of FB where you had to buy a USB scale set, and if you went over a certian weight, you weren't allowed to log in.
Provides an incentive to lose weight, I think. You heard it here first!
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
"a 1 millimeter gap in the interface between the antenna and the boom"
"For heavens sake Smithers, This isn't rocket science, its /brain surgery/!"
...Even use Yahoo! anymore?
...Please explain to this poor lad how a belt works?
Wibbley Wobbley Timey Wimey ... Stuff.
"What this means is that we are using an analogue connection from BT..."
So it'll last about a week before it breaks then?
All i can see happening
here is a series of nasty head injuries.
As soon as the battery gives, so does the gyro, POW - faceplant.
(Speaking from personal experience - even at 7mph onto grass, it hurts like ****)
1. Buy Taurus
2. Flat Battery
3. Head injury
is entirely what the bloke is getting at.
Besides, haven't you ever tried to take a cat to the vet? you have to roll it up in a towel.
Anyway, what about a good air gap between it and anything else, including the hackers themselves, and all portable media? Closed system. <Zerograv=ON>
What a muppet.
"a determined adversary will always - always - be able to penetrate a targeted system."
Not mine you won't.
Not when its encased in foot-thick concrete at the bottom of the ocean!
Or, to be more realistic, a nice fat air gap between the net adaptor port and the Cat5. (simples!)
