O2's customer service department is much better than any of the other networks, so as an O2 customer, I don't want 3's customer service.
Constituencies always elected members to send to parliament. That has never changed. What changed was the gradual introduction of the party system. We had one group of MPs that supported William of Orange in the English Civil War. The other side called them "Whigs". Another group supported King James, and the other side called them "Tories". The Whigs eventually became the party now known as the Liberal Democrats, and the Tories eventually became the party now known as the Conservatives, but are still frequently referred to as Tories. The Labour Party arrived on the scene much later on with the extension of voting rights to the working class.
It may be an irrelevant statistic, but it is what the sample measures, then they try to extrapolate from that to number of seats. This works if there is a uniform national swing, but in this election, there wasn't a uniform national swing, or even a uniform regional swing, there were 650 different elections each with swings going all over the place. In one seat there might be a swing from Labour to SNP, and also swings from the other unionist parties to Labour. In another seat there might be a swing from Lib Dem to Labour and another swing from Tory to Lib Dem. Elsewhere you might have swings involving UKIP and the pro-EU parties.
Server 2012 has ReFS, which is Microsoft's answer to ZFS, though probably pointless on the desktop.
They were owned directly by Murdoch, but he sold them to Sky last year. He owns about 40% of Sky.
Sky does offer a phone service. I have it on my PSTN line.
My car has that, but the generators are only activated when I press the break pedal, so some of the kinetic energy gets recovered as electricity rather than being wasted as heat in the break pads.
Windows 2 introduced this amazing thing called overlapping windows where you could make the windows any size you want and put them anywhere on the screen. Do we really want to go back to the days of the original 1.0 release of Windows?
There are two problems, one of which you covered, and the other you didn't.
If you want to find out the Return on Capital Employed, you need two things, you need to know the "return" ie profit, which can be subjective, and you also need to know the "capital employed".
You dealt with the problems in calculating profit, so I won't go into any more detail on that. But what about the problems in calculating the capital employed? If you travel on an airline for example, you might think that the huge plane that you are sitting in is a large part of the capital employed. After all, you can't run an airline without planes? The problem is, these planes are not on the airline's balance sheet, or very often, on anyone's balance sheet. David Tweedie, chairman of the International Accounting Standards Board, has declared that one item on his bucket list is to fly on a plane that is on someone's balance sheet. Companies do not like putting assets on their balance sheet, because that increases the capital employed, and therefore reduces the return on capital employed.
Even if you did wear your watch on your right arm, it would still require an awkward movement to get the front of your wrist on top of the card reader. It might actually be slightly easier to rotate about 30° and do it with your left hand.
But you would want to get your trade in at the last possible moment before the trading window, and have processed as much as possible of the new information available at that time.
For example if Mark Carney announced 10ms before the trading window that interest rates had been increased to 7%, some people may be trading without knowledge of that development, others would know about it and would be offloading their shares and bonds to people who didn't know.
The gives more opportunities to high frequency traders by taking advantage of developments in between each of those minutes.
It is generally easier to get unlimited minutes than unlimited data, so VOIP is only really useful for international calls, for use on wifi when abroad, and on wifi when you have no phone signal.
And of those 11%, most of them will probably want something that tells them what time it is rather than a smart watch.
Saw them in the Apple Store yesterday. Not that many people looking at it, certainly not compared to the 5k iMac when it came out. I had a quick look at it, and found it unusable.
I was sceptical about the iPad when it first came out, but I'm using one to type this comment. However, unless there is some really radical change to the watch, I will continue to use my iPhone as my timekeeping device.
Yes, because every operating system these days ships with a web browser, and it would be very difficult to download Firefox without one.
I think is is, but buy your smart TV box and your screen separately. You can replace a £80 to £100 smart TV box every couple of years to get the latest features and keep the screen for 5-10 years.
1920 x 1080 on a 5" phone screen is not the same as 1920 x 1080 on a 27" desktop monitor, and websites need to present themselves differently on the them.
However, they don't need to present the phone version on a 9" iPad, the desktop layout may be more appropriate there.
The minimum wage would be nearer to 45 Rupees per hour than $15, but your point is valid.
You don't have millions of people at an individual voting district, you have maybe 5000 people.
Open USB ports and default admin passwords were never acceptable. WEP encryption, I might be generous and give you that one.
Maybe the BBC could sell you a licence to watch their stuff. I've no idea if you would take them up on the offer, but some people certainly would pay it.
"as soon as practicable" means "never" in politician-speak.
You are comparing real life energy usage on the electric car with laboratory emissions on the Porsche. Real life fuel economy is typically about 1/2 to 1/3 of the lab figures.
Have you factored in marketing and distribution costs? Getting the part from the factory gate to your reception desk costs the same regardless of whether it is flash or spinning rust.
The television receiver isn't "installed" if you only use it as a computer monitor. That is a long established principle since the days when people were hooking up their Acorn Electrons to TVs. Of course, nowadays, you can use your computer to watch the live streams on iPlayer, and you need a TV licence for that. You don't however need a TV licence to watch the on-demand streams.
No, they are set by default to install automatically. I changed it to manual because I don't want my computer rebooting itself overnight when I've left it doing something.
That was advertised on the App Store as a new free thing you could download and install, not in the update section.
As I understand it, you use the normal phone app to make the call, rather than for example O2's ToGo app, but it doesn't hand-over between mobile and wifi networks, or even between different wifi access points on the same network, Same as Skype or any other VOIP service I've tried.
My commute is about 43 miles each way. The first 40 miles take about 40 minutes, and the remaining 3 miles take anything between 20-80 minutes, usually about 40 minutes. I don't have charging facilities at home, nor is it possible for me to install them, so a fully electric car is a non-starter. For those last three miles, a hybrid could make a difference.
If you are in really busy city traffic, it could take half an hour to drive one mile. With a normal car, the engine will be idling most of the time, burning fuel and not doing anything with it. In a hybrid, it will come on occasionally to charge up the battery, and the rest of the time, it will run on electric power. Electric cars are always more efficient than petrol at 0 mph.
522 days of congestion charge over those 3 years would cover it. Some people will do that.
But no congestion charge, which could make a difference.
99% of the software available in your preferred distro's application repository is probably crap as well. What matters is not the percentage of crap, but whether there are sufficient non-crap applications to do all the things you want to do with your hardware.
Must be useless if it only costs $1000. I give you http://www.futureshop.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=7383#.VSBqOhikqrU , an absolute bargain at only £7,599.95 (approx $11,340). It features "Composilex 2 insulation technology, which minimizes the triboelectric noise produced by conventional insulation material", whatever that is.
The advantage is that it allows them to say it is cloud based, a very important word in the buzzword bingo, and nobody will take you seriously if you don't use clouds.
Chorleywood white bread, lots of butter and bacon. Absolutely no sauce whatsoever.
What the fuck do you think it means? Read a bloody dictionary.
You can't expect them to understand something when their livelihood depends on them not understanding it.
"Clouds" are located in real physical data centres with actual human beings running them, many of them readers of this website.
Yes but El-Reg isn't going to miss the opportunity to put a double-entendre in there.
But more problems with earthquakes if you are in a part of the world where that is something you need to consider.
Diginotar were bankrupted in similar circumstances, so yes.
And if BA doesn't supply the flight you paid for because they went bust, you get compensation from Expedia, if you bought a hotel stay at the same time.
Expedia is regulated as a travel agent, and the airlines they sell tickets for are regulated as airlines.
There will be Dublin rules, Limerick rules and so on, not a single set of Irish rules, and certainly not a single set of EU rules.
Most taxi firms let you book cabs over the phone by making a voice call. Why should it be any different if this one lets you book cabs over the phone by using an app?
Halifax and Bank of Scotland is the same website with a different logo. My login details work on both and it shows both my Halifax account and my Bank of Scotland account.
My statement is that standing for parliament on an anti-BST platform isn't going to help, because they don't have any control over the matter.
As it happens, when the EU harmonised the rules, the adopted the British rules across Europe.
British pints are bigger, 568ml, but the American ones are smaller, only 473ml of refreshment.
