Was briefly enthused...
At first, I thought I could buy one of these and stick it on my home network and then be able to use my PC or Raspberry Pi to graph the sensor data over time.
Did they just roll back to the previous day's data?
It's shocking that people have seen money go missing. I mean, being unable to use your credit card or withdraw cash is obviously bad, but you can get around that by keeping credit cards from more than one provider. Seeing your wages vanish is another thing entirely.
Re: Don't stand too close
I suppose that is true if you ignore solar PV, hydro-electric power plants, wind turbines, diesel generators, etc...
What about keeping XP?
I've got an NC10 that I still use for programming during my commute. It came with XP and I run Visual Studio on it, which sounds absolutely horrific, but works well enough. Building is slow, but just writing code is fine, so I can upload it and do my builds/debugging on my desktop when I'm at home.
So what about sticking with XP? As I understand it, the idea is that Microsoft will stop supporting it, so there will be no further security patches and that's the main concern. Is there more to it than that? Can the netbook be kept secure enough to continue working on it and include some minor web access in that or is it really curtains?
In other words...

My passenger took the photo, your honour.
Because otherwise, companies could just pick out an employee and force/bribe them take the blame even if many more people were involved in the crime.
Re: As any fule kno
But 'graphics' comes from the word 'giraffics' as the first image on a computer screen looked a bit like a horse with a very long neck.
'employee representatives may want to take legal advice: “If they don’t have the benefit of that, they are left probably for the first time in their lives with a set of issues they haven’t faced before..."'
PS2 introduced DVD to the masses when dedicated players cost more than the games machine. PS3 did similar with Blu-ray and also introduced a platform that could be updated with new apps, adding things like iPlayer and Netflix over time. PS4 offers a hardware upgrade that will make the games look better (and potentially run smoother), but adds nothing as obvious beyond that as the previous two generations.
I hope it does well, but I think it might see a more gradual uptake than the PS2 and PS3, despite Sony having managed to reign in the cost compared to the last iteration, which had a huge launch price.
The day one sales are impressive, but possibly more indicative of efficient logistics than mid to long term demand for the machine. I'm just saying it's early days and probably too early to draw any conclusions.
Re: 20/20 vision
I believe the dev-kits came with some optional lenses you could swap in and out to adjust for basic sight problems.
Re: First example?
The force coming from the sun hits the sunward facing side of the asteroid fairly evenly. So if the asteroid is asymettrical, there will be a greater force to one side of its centre of mass than the other. This will cause it to spin.
Re: Am I misunderstanding?
From the way this article's written it sounds more like the edges are just rounded off a bit. Maybe this isn't even part of the visible display, but just the glass bevel bending around the sides of the phone. I'm not sure what would be so innovative about curved glass, though. I mean, drinking glasses have managed to have curved edges for hundreds of years.
Re: East coast of the US
What? It's November.
Re: Fast horizontal elevator?
The Channel Tunnel seems to work fairly well, though. You're underground for about half an hour (roughly!) and there are windows, but there's noting to see through them.
Just stick a TV in the capsule and blast the passengers with adverts for half an hour and you'll be fine. :)
Re: That's not the only thing that doesn't make any sense
Is it because when you get that much dust and put it really close together it's combined mass exerts a large enough gravitational force to melt it into a big lump?
Re: Too soon.

Re: Turned our oldest LCD TV into a Smart TV
That's interesting about Netflix being better when watched via the PS3.
I have a Samsung Smart TV with a PS3 connected and I found that Lovefilm is the opposite. ie. using the Lovefilm player on the PS3 results in a far inferior stream than watching it via the Smart TV app.
OK, it's not THAT interesting, but the point is that if you have more than one way of accessing these services you should test them all because you'll end up with different results, even on the same screen.
Re: "Orbiting nothing"?
It's probably orbiting the centre of mass of the galaxy anyway.
It must suck to be you, Mr. Coward.
1: Don't use the self-checkouts. If they want me to do it myself, it should be cheaper, as I'm not paying for the cashier.
2: If there's no other option, try using the self-checkout.
3: If it doesn't work at any time, just leave all my shopping on it and walk off.
Comet of the Century
If it's a bit of a dud let's hope it ISN'T the comet of the century.
Re: Nothing will make airships viable.
It has the advantage of being able to compensate for burning off fuel by gradually allowing air into the envelope too.
The road past Teakettle Junction, heading out to Racetrack Playa is perfect for testing this. There's a good long stretch that's like driving along corrugated iron, with corrugations about a foot apart. I've never vibrated so much in my life.
Re: "Not for weapons, honestly"
Well, there was that time they used an ICBM to shoot a defunct satelitte out of orbit, causing a right old mess in the process.
Re: Blaming the victim?
The bank is legally required to give you the money back. It's then up to the bank whether or not to try and pursue the person who stole it.
No, he means facebook can keep selling access to users to advertisers. The archive is used to keep those users returning to facebook so they are available for sale.
So, seeing as the NSA has access to GMail, this means they can wipe all Android phones at will, right?
Re: Bankrupt - No wonder
I think you thought Greece was literally an island.
Re: Why bother ?
Because it gave the intern a chance to learn about working with large datasets whilst doing somethng creative with the OS data in a way that makes it accessible to others.
Better than spending the summer fetching coffees and printing out emails.
No, the Earth's rotational period is gradually increasing as angular momentum is transferred to the Moon. However, it doesn't slow down at a constant rate and events such as earthquakes can cause the planet to spin faster.
No possibility of them deliberately overstating the problem and you guys missing the sense of humour then? :)
I remember looking through the data files and finding that it was dead easy to adjust all the driving and handling characteristics of the cars.

Wait a minute...
Is his whole argument that the software that comes with Hadoop clusters makes it a bit easier than writing your own software to run on a bot net?
"At time of writing, however, it's unclear whether the newspaper had turned itself into the Information Commissioner's Office."
Re: Get rid of images of people
We should get rid of images all together and just have plain banknotes!
"Such clues are, apparently, too subtle for the great British public who need real-time displays of their spending before they'll drag themselves off the sofa to turn off the unused shower."
The trouble is that the utility companies do all they can to hide these clues by averaging bills over long time periods, etc. ie. Over the last ten years or so, my electricity and gas bills have been the same each month for a year at a time or maybe two or three years. They just don't show the diffrerences in using the clothes dryer less for a couple of weeks or making an effort not to leave any lights on. It's all smoothed out and hidden away.
I wonder what started the argument.
Maybe the host took ages to move instead of going to the fridge for more beers, causing his guest to remark, "Get us another beer, would ya? This one's gone stale, mate."
Here's some for you.
I'm on my third iPhone 5 because I've had to return two to Apple due to hardware faults (looked like the video RAM for the camera was faulty).
From this I draw the conclusion that the iPhone 5 is not as well made as the 1 or the 3GS I've had before.
"Google's Android-powered Glass works by beaming graphics into the wearer's eyeballs"
I thought it displayed them on a little screen.
Re: One thing they still have to sort out....
Surely this is something that QA should have piked up! We can't fix bugs that haven't been reported, you know.
Now they should work on getting rid of the meat from the carrier as well.
Re: Earth Meteorites on Mars
I'm speculating a bit here, but isn't the likelihood of Earth meteorites on Mars lower than the other way around, what with Mars being further out from the Sun? ie. It takes more energy to get there.
