Fine, they can't "take money from his account"
They can, however, purchase goods using funds in his account
Dearest friends and family,
If you are reading this message, I have some words that may shock or distress you and for that I am truly sorry.
I have changed to using Bing for my searches.
I've tried lapel mounted cameras when cycling - great shots of the ground.
And when I have a radio mounted on radio loops, it swings all over the place (Yes, TETRA clips have less swing on them than fabric loops).
Hand aiming the camera allows for the exact shot to be taken, I suppose.

I have had eBay offer to sell me Wales before now.
The "beloved" XP is the same OS that had a load of problems when it came out?
Companies not liking the Fisher Price interface.
Applications not working due to the differences between the 95/98 and NT kernel and application compatibility not being good enough for them.
How many of these people clinging to XP were clinging to 98 for the first few years of XP's life?
How many were clinging to WfW, rather than going to this new Windows 95 thing?
I've been in a Merc Sprinter with runlock.
That got into a possessed mode where I could not turn it off; I was able to select a gear, raise the handbrake and apply power with the keys in my pocket.
Luckily, there was an isolator switch. Failing that, chucking it into 5th and trying to pull off should have stopped it quite nicely.
As people have said, think outside the box to find ways to regain control.

Hello, yes... I want the number for Hoomv.
Is the the first time we've heard here of the ICO fining someone other than a local authroity or the NHS?
You're right. I'm going to start a petition and get fame for a cmapaign against this.

Isn't that the 3rd alfane? Between efane and bufane?
So... A default value of "I do not consent to tracking" is good, and a default of "I consent to tracking" is bad, in the eyes of the EU.
How is Mr Apache, who's name I can't remember, going to take this?

Microsoft is calling the audits Software Asset Management (SAM)
Can this new Microsoft Sam say "honestly, the wasteman crotch goes soi soi soi soi soi soi soi"?
Evil Linux dropping support
How can you people support an OS raising its minimum processor requirements a whole generation?
It's an outrage to think that they can just axe support for the 386 like that!
Where will it end? The next version requiring a 486 with 487, not just a plain 486?
The line must be drawn here! This far, and no further!

Woo shiny Yay
I take it going forwards that badge assignment is going to be automatic from now, rather than El Reg staff having to hack through the assignment process every day/week/month/when they remember.
AC stuff should count towards your score, or the My Posts page should be updated (You have 100 upvotes, 20 downvotes total. (AC 10 upvotes, 19 downvotes)) Actually, that'd be pretty cool to see anyway. Do people react better to me or my mask?
OR AC could still show the right badge for the commentard. AC, gold badge... "Well, I don't know who this was, but we can narrow it down a bit!"
Vodafone's thing will react to "I want to talk to a real person"
Will they put the tannoy speakers in there too?
"Hey look at this!"

Yep. Linux is flawless.

That makes sense.
I thought that it seemed a slightly low penalty for something that stands against the very notion of the court.
They do insurance along the North Wales rail network.
Something which the home market would use, like AV should be tested on something which OEMs are going to provide.
Whatever your views on Windows 8 are, there will be a lot of Windows 8 machines on the field from new hardware purchases.
If I were making a game (not the Big Game of Twenty Thirteen (TM), but Simulator-game Simulator) or a niche app, I might consider holding off.
If I were making a potentially widespread app (AV/Backup/PowerLink/etc) then I would want to try and maximise the coverage.
An AV causing BSOD is more likely than another app doing a BSOD, since it pokes around more than Notepad, for example.
It is though another non story: Developer didn't prepare for next Windows launch, Developer gets bitten by incompatibility.
Re: or record how someone connects manually for the benefit of other users.
So, this thing which connects to OPEN wifi will broadcast the WPA key, since open points have WPA keys.
I'm confused by your logic.
It's going to autofill in the O2 WIFI/The Cloud/whatever forms for you. Nice and tinfoilhatless.
Like that's ever stopped them!

"Woah", I hear you call. "Nothing is better than an iPad Mini? Doesn't that go against your list?"
Nope. Having "Nothing" is prefereably to having this iProduct.
I'm surprised that Apple haven't already patented it.
It's the usual thing: Companies have had loads of chances to test compatibility and even devise new shiny versions: "Bob's AV - For the NEW Windows!" (costs 50% more than the last one)
Instead they wait until launch day and go "Oh. Need to fix this, then"
Ten... More Apple iPad Mini alternatives
1: Pen and paper
2: Chalk and pavement
3: Crayon and wall
4: A turd
5: Jamming pencils in your eyeballs
6: Licking the third rail
Actually, this is harder than I thought. I'm running out of ideas!
