The Alt key to the right of the space bar serves as Alt-Gr in Parallels.
And the auditors. Components are only opex if they replace an existing broken one.
Do I really want to know what sort of wife you have if it is possible to collapse on her and the dog at the same time.
If you are 65 in 2039, you could well have taken out your first pension in 1992, so I would imagine that if there is a problem, someone would have spotted it by now. Most people these days taking out pension policies will be retiring after 2038.
And when you swipe it, it tells you that you must use the chip, so basically the slot is there for American tourists to use.
In technologically backward countries like the USA maybe, but try presenting a mag-stripe card in a shop in Europe and you will get some strange looks.
If all their employees worked in Bhutan, and their products were all sold from a Bhutanese hosted website, then yes that would work.
They have a service company branch in the UK, and the Irish or Lux company pays the UK service company to do some work on their behalf, at the same rates that a third party outsourcing company such as Serco would charge.
That only works if you are non-domiciled or non-resident, otherwise if you take the money out of the company anywhere in the world, you have to pay UK tax on it. If you are non-resident in the UK, you are probably resident somewhere else and will have to pay tax there.
If you can justify your claim that an independent 3rd party would pay £30k per year for your logo, then yes you could do that. In reality, they might pay at most £300 as a one off fee for logo design. Starbucks has to pay lots of money in advertising and sponsorship to make their logo as valuable as it is.
If you work in tax, there was loads of very useful information on the hmrc.gov.uk website.
You can pick up an N54L for about £170. That's the model that was current about 2 years ago. I have the N40L, which is the previous model to that, and have absolutely no problems with performance.
Government websites generally work very well in lynx. They are very good at ensuring their websites comply with accessibility guidelines, and compatibility with lynx is a good test of that.
I had some fun with Google Translate yesterday. In the middle of a list of countries, it had "Fruit salad". Macedonia is the Italian word for fruit salad, as well as being the name of a country to the north of Greece.
Here, local services are typically 85-90 mph, intercity services are 125mph and international services are 300km/h (186 mph).
Given that 70% of all Euro denominated transactions worldwide go through the City of London, I don't think the fact it isn't our official currency is much of a problem.
You should say "White British/Irish", as discriminating against other whites, including "White Irish Traveller" is not PC.
The problem is that Bitcoin is so thinly traded that any more than about 100 BTC in naked shorts would lead to a short squeeze and cause the price to shoot upwards.
They had barcode scanners in 1996 when the first one opened near me.
It is not the browser or software per se that is the attack vector. It is the fact that they accept returns from anyone without verifying who they are.
HMRC had the same problem in the UK, on their own website, with people filing bogus tax credit applications. Now you have to ask for a claim form to be posted to your home address. It seems the state governments in the US are thinking the same way.
Just like we are all using Windows 8?
Microsoft does have competition in the operating system market, it is called Windows 7, and costs nothing because it is already [probably] on your computer.
You could still communicate with them over Wifi on the LAN without an internet connection. Burglar alarm, I can understand why you would want it to display an alert on your phone while you are out. Heating, why on earth would anyone want to change their heating settings when they aren't around. Yes I know there is the idea that you can turn it on half an hour before you go home, and if you are going to be late, you can change that, provided of course that your delay is of a type that allows you to know exactly how late you are going to be with 30 minutes notice, and also that you are going to be in a position where you can get on your phone and do something about it.
In that scenario, they are not moving from Android. Though it could the case that they are moving from Chinese landfill Android to iPhone.
In London, Über are just another minicab operator. There are loads of them around. Addison Lee is the biggest, they are cheaper than Über, and they also have a mobile app to book their cars.
Depends, if you use an offensive word in English, then it should probably translate it into an equivalently offensive word in the other language, and if you use a politically correct word, it should.
However, Google is nowhere near as good as a skilled human translator, and it works by examining already translated texts, so maybe I'm asking too much.
One reason, the Mifi has a bigger battery and you can leave it in your bag. Also, if you are abroad, it is probably easier to buy a PAYG Mifi and load it with credit than put a new SIM in your phone and end up with a different phone number.
That's fine for running fibre between cities. There is already quite a bit of that. This is for more local connections.
With a web-based chat service, you need to contact the other person off-band to get them to visit the web page before you can call them. Chat services need to run in the background all the time if they are to be of any use.
I'm going to call it O3.
We get lots of manhole cover explosions in London because UK Power Networks doesn't maintain them properly. That didn't happen when Électricité de France owned them.
If you are comparing it to American cars, anything for sale in Britain is going to be small or very small.
As an example, the smallest car Volkswagen sell in the US is the Golf. Here, the smallest is the Up!, the next size up is the Polo, then there is the Golf.
If snow on the windscreen was the only problem, then why didn't he just pull over somewhere safe and clear the snow off the bonnet?
You would have another domain pointing to the English language website.
Not completely automated, but take the actual monthly mortgage payments for example. In the past, the homeowner would have gone to the bank counter with a pile of cash, it would be counted and put in the safe, and all the ledger cards would be updated manually and new balances added up. Now a computer requests payment from another computer, and those computers update the ledger tables in the database automatically. Things like working out the interest were really complicated for a human to do, but no trouble at all for a computer.
Unless the fact that you paid taxes was a USP that encouraged more customers to buy from you. Companies do sometimes spend more money than the minimum necessary for that reason, for example by buying Fair Traded goods, or signing up to the Living Wage.
That still leaves the problem of companies in different countries that have the same name. You could solve that by having for example .de.us.inc for Delaware, .ph.inc for Phillipines.
I would have had no problem in paying $25 to upgrade to Windows 8 if it was an improvement on Windows 7, but it is more of a downgrade than an upgrade, so even if it was free, and as I had a Technet subscription at the time, there was no marginal cost anyway.
One of the great things about Windows 2 back in the days was overlapping, resizable Windows. We seem to have somehow lost that in the TIFKAM side of Windows 8.
Does anyone dual-boot these days? I'm sure it will work fine in a virtual machine.
But they could sell a subscription for maybe £145.50 per year and make quite a bit of money out of it.
Microsoft's remote desktop app works quite well on the iPad. You can use the screen as a trackpad to move the mouse pointer around, and use much the same gestures for clicking, right clicking and so on that you would use on a laptop trackpad.
He is basically comparing the track-laying cost of his project with the entire cost of a TGV or Shinkansen type line. The track-laying cost is I suspect, a fairly small proportion of the total cost.
That's roughly the same distance as between London and Paris, which takes 2h 15m by Eurostar. Would the benefits of an unproven technology in terms of reduced journey times outweigh the additional costs and uncertainties, when compared to a technology that is well established and widely used throughout Europe, Japan and a few other countries?
But the lines that already exist are running at full capacity, and the trains are seriously overcrowded. That's why we need a new line, and if you are going to build a new line, you may as well make it a high speed line.
Lots of people do run Linux these days, on smart TVs and similar, not so much on desktop computers.
Indeed there is, but the point is that most of them could be avoided if there was a reason to avoid them.
I pay for stuff with my credit card, a taxable transaction, then at the beginning of the following month, pay of the credit card, another taxable transaction. I could half my tax bill by paying by debit card instead.
Lots of companies in other countries have money in UK banks, so much so that more Euro denominated transactions take place in the UK than in the rest of the world put together, and more US Dollar transactions take place in the UK than in any other country. Those companies could reduce their tax bills by not using British banks.
Then I don't think you will find that 0.35% is anything like enough to cover the government's budget.
It would cost more to upgrade an existing line to take double decker trains than build a brand new line. HS2 will be built to continental loading gauge so will be able to take double decker trains.
Another problem with double deckers is that it takes a lot longer for people to get on and off, so they have to wait longer at each station.
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.
