Satnav blunders blamed for £200m damages

Giddy Kipper

Re: No kidding?

You're old-fashioned.

But really. A minute *behind* the vehicle? Surely you would have shot straight past Sainsburys by then and possibly ended up in the nether regions of Matalan. Have you ever tried a journey of more than 180 seconds from your house using the new fangled technology?

There's your problem ...

"you have got to integrate what you are doing with your internal systems, so your Oracle accounting system, your SAP system. There's a lot of internal integration and interoperability required"

@MrCheese

You appear, yet again, to be reading/commenting in the wrong publication. This fine journal, in the main, reports on matters relating to IT and the issues affected by such.

You will find there is much other reporting going on which would suit as a vehicle for your brainspurts.

Perhaps if you started here; http://goo.gl/I3f1u and left the rest of us to ponder our HDD supply chain quandary.

Thx.

Motorola sharpens smartphones with revamped Razr

Giddy Kipper
WTF?

Erm. Peter.

MATERIALS: SUPER STRONG, NOT SUPER SIZED

Thin no longer equals frail. We made the MOTOROLA RAZR with KEVLAR® fibre, while Corning® Gorilla® Glass helps the screen stand up to the scratches and scrapes that are bound to happen. Spilt coffee? Caught in the rain? No problem. This phone is protected with a splash-guard coating — even the electrical boards inside.

Please. Just try a little harder.

BBC Freesat tech switch zaps HD channels from 'old' boxes

Giddy Kipper
Boffin

From SatCure.com

On some Panasonic Freesat TVs, Auto retune does not get the updated

BBC HD channels. You have to set the TV to shipping condition then

switch off then switch on. After retune, the two BBC HD channels appear.

(Thanks to John Beniston for pointing this out.)

If you have any other kind of satellite receiver, you will need to

check that it is capable of receiving a DVB-S2 signal. If it can,

then you can use the following parameters to tune manually into the

services carried:

Satellite: Astra 2D tp.50

Frequency: 10,847MHz (vertical polarity)

Modulation: DVB-S2, QPSK

Symbol Rate: 23.0

FEC: 8/9

(Thanks to Denis Martindale for digging out this info.)

Brit expats aghast as Denmark bans Marmite

Giddy Kipper

What amused me ...

... is the fact that the scientist who first discovered this lovely product whilst working for the brewery around 1900 is the great grandfather of a relative of mine.

@Robert E A Harvey

Robert dear boy, the picture you have quoted from the Mail is not a depiction of goosing which is a pinch of the buttock.

What appears to be going on is something which goes by many names - a Tony Bologna being one of them.

@ amanfromMars 1

Given your bollocks generator has not improved syntactically, grammatically nor in content reference or applicability for some time now, perhaps you could refrain from posting your inanities until your planet-sized brain has made some fundaMental modifications to the Dragon-32 (C42) based software you are utilising.

Either that or just go and scare the Mail readers.

That is all.

Thx.
