Re: "200,000 F" - Who converted the ºK to ºF for this verbiage?
Degrees Kelvin???? Go to the bottom of the class. It's K.
Sounds like the NIH 1998 redefinition of overweight from 27.8 to 25 BMI, and similar for obese. Same has happened here on the correct side of the pond, again no reference to it in the alarmism.
It'd better be <= 1600 watts.
No more Wogan?
So with all these billions of devices slurping up the EM power contained in RF, will there be anything left for my venerable wireless to receive?

If their suncatcher is producing power, why do they need a light on?
Nope. CP/67 was the forerunner of IBM's VM. Ran on S/360
Re: Deiberately missing the point???
In the UK, gas and oil belong to the state. See https://www.bgs.ac.uk/mineralsuk/planning/legislation/mineralOwnership.html.
Ownership of the land above it is irrelevant.

I'll see your III/4 and raise you III/1 at Hartree House in Bayswater. There was LEO II/5 just across the corridor. Aah, happy days.
Bit late aren't they?
About 90 years or so. Met Office discovers NAO. Hold the presses.
They might even get round to the PDO and AMO in another 10 years.
"Quid pro quo, paid-for software would deliver £1.6bn in additional economic value to Blighty's fragile economy, "
So instead of spending £1.6 bill on other things it is spent on paid-for software. I make -1.6 +1.6 = 0.
Or is that unpaid 1.6 bill just kept under the mattress?
Looks strangely familiar
Have you got a stash of issues of Eagle?
"The scientists estimated the figures by running a model based on a new cat murder algorithm. The research authors described themselves as stunned by the scale of the bloodshed they discovered."
Discovered? Discovered??!!?? They discovered nothing. The model which they built produced the numbers which their parameters were designed to do.

"However, these deadweight costs vary depending on what type of tax we use to raise revenue. A handy OECD chart is excerpted here"
last but 1 para on page 1. That last word 'here' should be a link to the OECD chart.
Re: People tell lies on surveys
Yup. You can collect peoples' answers until you're blue in the face. It's their revealed preference that doesn't lie.
Are you going to take this lying down?
Never mind all this acronyming. A major upgrade to Lohan is clearly needed.

More than that. Why connect them to the net in the first place?
CEO must be a fan of the golden age of Sci-Fi. Eric Frank Russel's short story 'And then there were none'. I commend it to the house.

Reminds me of a spoof storage device from the early 70s that was going to replace disks – spherical storage. Complete with its own set of hardware instructions. I can only remember a few, no balls, twirl balls, and of course, all balls
I see a gap in the market. A Recovery Service to protect against Recovery Service disaster.

".. 34% of the world's biomass " A widely acccepted figure is that +70% of the biomass on earth is bacterial. (citations if I can find time) Add the claimed USA blubbermass to that and it doesn't leave much for any other fauna, flora, fishes, fungi, .....

"Utilities want to deploy smart meters because the technology will simplify the process of ........ controlling supply at times of high demand"
Sorry, but yes, you have. Neutrinos aren't affected by a wave guide such as a fibre optic cable. They stop for nothing and nobody. Their path is a geodesic. With only occasional exceptions they pass through matter as though it doesn't exist.
Taking the piss on a country-wide scale
Yeh, right. Fondle slabs. A supply of (paper) notebooks and pencils would, I suggest, be more useable.
"..black holes careening into each other"
Beached black holes having their barnacles removed?

Lemons? Lemons?? If one adds fruit, it is a slice of lime.

Aah! CP/67. I remember it well from my days at Big Blue. Another of those not-quite-official products that kicked the arse of the mainstream offerings. And so became the grudgingly (to the suits) acceptable VM/370.
