Which is great when the bus stops at the bus stop, and not a few meters behind it, because there is already another bus there.

Re: I wonder - North London commuters
No actually, it isn't, because that requires longer platforms, which depending on the layout of the station, and other stuff round about it, ranges in price from moderately expensive to virtually impossible.
Re: I wonder
Tax destroys economic activity. Government spending creates it, and some forms of spending create more than others.
Re: I wonder
HS2 frees up capacity on the West Coast Mainline for more local train services, so that the commuter trains for people who live to the north of London are less overcrowded.
Re: on both a 28k modem and a 56k modem
Provided your tax affairs are straightforward. If you have anything remotely out of the ordinary in your income, then you have to revert to a paper return.
Re: Single Volume?
What I like about the Seagate is that it can be used as a plug-in replacement, and it gave my older Apple laptop, which doesn't understand fusion drives, a new lease of life.
Re: Nobel gas bag
The Financial Reporting Council covers Ireland as well as the UK, and a lot of the accountants in Malaysia are registered with one of the UK accountancy bodies.
If it is a library, and there is somebody watching you use the fingerprint scanner, then it is probably a bit more secure. They will likely notice if you have a bit of balloon attached to your finger.
Re: Time accuracy
When I'm at work I can see the time on the bottom right hand corner of my computer screen.
Re: 2 year release cycle
You don't have to buy the latest model every year, and I suspect most people don't. However, when they do buy a new phone, they probably do want to buy the latest model, or have last year's model as the budget option.
So no, I don't think that would be a good idea. Next year, people who want to buy a phablet would have the option of last years iPhone 6+, or the Galaxy Note 5.
Would they be able to make a 4" phone as thin as the iPhone 6 and still have a tolerable battery life?
Same with the iPad. But does activation mean setting it up with a mobile data plan, or connecting it to the relevant app store?
Dropbox and Google Drive sync the entire folder. I believe the OneDrive feature he's referring to is something where you can selectively chose which documents you wish to cache, but still have all the documents appearing in the folder. Not available on my Windows 7 copy of OneDrive, but I read about it here.
It involved buying up all the bags of sugar in the local supermarkets and putting it into the concrete. That stopped it setting and gave them time to remove it all while still wet.
Re: Her choice
The only time you buy an ironing board as a present for a woman is if she is your daughter, and she's moving out to her own place for the first time. Laptops aren't in the same category at all.
Re: The rest of the story
But does it address the main security risk, that people are willing to visit a site like 例子.cn/saajkshkj/www.barclays.co.uk/ajsdklfjaksdjflkj and enter their bank login details.
Re: Amen brother!
If there are tractors or some other form of machinery on the paddy fields rather than (mostly) women, and those women are instead making something else, then we will still have the same amount of rice, or possibly more, and we have the other things they make as well.
Re: Reality Distortion Field
Apple don't claim to be the ethical choice. They claim that their products are better quality and easier to use than the competition, which you may or may not agree with, but has nothing to do with whether they are ethically sourced.
On the desktop, Bing is usually the default and most people do change it to Google. Often they have to ask someone who knows about computers to do it for them, but they do make the effort to do it.
Re: Frequently-revolting staff stomp off for three days
Amazon's mail order company is located in Luxembourg, and pays various logistics company divisions around Europe to fulfil the orders. That is how they manage to not pay any tax.
Re: none for me...
90% is actually quite low. Mine blocks about 97%, and if it was working effectively, it would probably be more like 99%.
Re: Never really understood
People have supplied something along the lines of [email protected] as the billing email address for Plusnet. They only use that email address for Plusnet, and have other email addresses for other suppliers that send them emails. That is the email address that is receiving the spam.
Re: Hang on
I did once buy a load of stuff from Tesco at 1p each. It was late on a Sunday afternoon, and they had a load of meat that was dated that day, and their choice was to either sell it for a penny, or pay someone to collect it from their bin.
Not if the money has been collected from the credit card, and the item is in a box with your name on it.
Re: Automation and freedom or not?@AC
Steganography would normally use features of the actual photo itself to transmit the message. It might be as simple as "a picture of a cat means 'yes'", "a picture of a dog means 'no'", or you could or you could change a few pixels in an inconspicuous part of the photo to send a coded message.
Re: From a customer's PoV
On the other hand, if you go to the local branch of your bank, they do need to know who you are.
Re: Oh boo-hoo, Chas Roy-Chowdhury
They do have a lot of cash stuffed under several shed loads of mattresses. $25.16bn of the stuff as of 27 Sept 2014 when they filed their most recent set of accounts - https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=AAPL
Re: They just don't get it
There are franchise and IP costs, charged to the Irish company, to move the profits even further offshore, so they don't pay anything like 12.5% tax on their profits. The Irish authorities are generally happy to allow 95% of the profits to be shifted in this manner.
And of course for things like Skype and Facetime, the limiting factor is the upload speed on both ends of the line, not the download speed.
Re: Typical households need 10Mbps
I think you will find that more people can get a BT (or Kingston) connection of some description than can get access to mains water and sewerage.
You are right, we read loads of reports that terrorists have been arrested, but apart from the 7/7, 21/7 and Glasgow Airport bombings, which were actual real terrorist incidents, has anyone actually been convicted. It usually goes very quiet after the initial arrest. One exception was the Castle Quay Shopping Centre plot, which was laughed out of court. That was widely reported.
It could buy 137061 Enviro 400s (non hybrid version), which if stacked on top of each other would reach a height of 589km which is 0.15% of the way to the moon.
The bus fleet in London is 8765 buses, most of them are Enviro 400s or similar. Some are more expensive Boris Buses, and some are cheaper single deckers.
Re: The damage is done anyway
Well the RIAA have got it in that respect now. Unfortunately the MPAA have not, and there is still DRM on videos, despite the fact that videos are more difficult to share than mp3s because they are so much bigger.
MOSS a success?
The first MOSS returns will be filed on 1st April next year. At the moment, all you can do is sign up for it, so it is a bit premature to declare it a success.
Re: Stop taxing profits
So if Apple Ireland advertises its latest Jesus Phone on Google Ireland, and British people see those ads and order the phone from Carphone Warehouse, who in turn get them shipped over from Ireland, how much tax does George Osbourne get from the advertising revenue.
Re: Security disaster in the making
I guess the .net libraries could be deployed via the Mac App store and the linux distro repositories. That would work the same way as Windows Update.
They have one photo where they know the answer, and another where they don't know the answer. You only have to get one of them right, but you don't know which one it is.
Re: Just popping over to Calais ...
The other part of the deal is that calls to numbers all over Europe will cost the same as a call to another phone in the same country, ie included in the monthly bundled minutes for most people so no marginal cost.
Assets is not the correct figure to look at
For a charity, the number you need to look at is "free reserves", which isn't a number on the balance sheet, but may be in the Trustee's report, or you can work it out yourself.
Assets that the charity needs in order to carry out its activities, such as the servers the site is hosted on are not free reserves. The cash is, provided it isn't restricted funds, but you need to deduct the liabilities and commitments from that.
 Commitments are also not shown on the balance sheet, but should be in the notes to the accounts somewhere. Where you have a contract with someone to provide services, and the money isn't due yet, because the service has not yet been provided, that is a commitment.
Re: Straight into a special account
Swiss bank accounts are no longer secret. They have information sharing agreements with the IRS and with the tax authorities of EU countries.
Re: Not a great network track reord ....
If Blackberry goes down, your phone becomes a dumbphone. If iCloud goes down, most features of the iPhone will still work. So yes, nobody is really using iCloud in the sense that most of the time, they don't need to.
Re: Can't trust the survey
And London, population 7375, is the smallest city in England.
Like London, Greater Manchester is much bigger than just the Manchester City Council area, it has a population of 2.7 million, making it the second largest city after Greater London with a population of 8.2 million.

Re: A joke surely
It is on the card that they put through the door without bothering to ring the bell.
Re: Even the regular 6 is too big
The fact is that the Galaxy Note was launched at a higher price point than the iPhone, and they managed to sell in reasonable numbers. It is normally very difficult to break the Apple price ceiling. That is why it was necessary for Apple to move into the Phablet market.
Most of the terrorist incidents come from animal rights groups, not Islamists or Irish Republicans.
Re: I seem to remember
I live in a flat (en_US: apartment), therefore ground source heat pumps and rooftop solar panels are not an option for me.
Re: It's the search verticals like hotels, cinema
If you search for hotels in New York, do you want details of hotels in New York, or do you want a list if websites that may or may not contain details of hotels in New York?
Re: Euro Jealousy
Bing is the default search engine on most computers, and people make a conscious decision to switch to Google.
