At least the Stagefright workaround is easy: disable auto-retrieve of MMS msgs in any app you use for messaging.
And ASLR mitigates the Stagefright vulnerability, too.
Mango of baguettes? ;-)
They should have a little vase on the dash with a plastic flower, like the VW Beetle.
But unlike the Beetle, it should squirt water at the driver randomly.
Following the budget he's spending a year dead for tax reasons..
Air bubbles are not the huge risk that Columbo would have you believe, I was told when I complained about the huge air bubbles in my infusion line...
Part of my route to work was a walk from Kings Cross to Charlotte St, past Tavistock Square.
I remember we suspected it was more than just electrical problems on the tube.
And then from the office we heard the bus go off.
At midday they sent us home, and we walked with half of London it seemed, to Finsbury Park, where the trains were terminating.
Methinks the pic has been nicked from another story!
... an extended warranty with that...?
Or do the headline and first paragraph say opposite things?
"the drink of losers"...
or 12 year old winners
Bundaberg Ginger Beer!
used a photo of Australian traffic lights...
Room service, of course
The reporter didn't look it up because the world ended in 2012, silly ;-)
They float in the air. That's cloud computing for you...
It says the opposite: "[RAID]disk failure likelihood during a rebuild increases with rebuild time"
If I understand correctly, more advanced filesystems like ZFS (and I suppose this "SmashFS") are much quicker to rebuild, because they know to only rebuild the data which was on the dead drive (and not the whole drive). And so they stress the remaining drives less.
Which begs the question - how is OneBlox better than the likes of ZFS and BTRFS, etc? (ZFS is designed to scale out to Zettabyte scale, hence the name)
"I can do experiments into the behaviour of soap bubbles in gravity right here - I'd have more trouble doing experiments into the behaviour of soap bubbles in zero gravity.."
not strictly zero-gravity. gravity up there is roughly 85% of gravity at the surface. The ISS (and its contents) is perpetually falling towards the Earth but missing. ;-)
By meddling - do you mean dabbling?
19" alloys... got to put the rackmount servers somewhere, I suppose...
Won't somebody think of the children?
Editor's choice? etc?
follow the links?
I originally read the headline as implying that they were deciding not to encrypt emails as a result of Snowden...
Still, it got me to read the article...
"No, Cheesoid! Not petrol, cheese!"
...perhaps the reward system is working against timely reporting?
Vector graphics is the term you're after
"With so much (and very expensive) high-tech stuff in orbit, how come there's no sign of Malaysian Airlines MH370?"
There was an article about this on El Reg recently. Basically the plane disappeared in a boring part of the world, spy-wise, and is now hidden from satellite view by 4500m of water..
Ah, so that's our word for schadenfreude. Cheers!
...ought to be directed downwards to take off, no?
How many guesses do I get?
Am I the only one who thinks the Nest Protect carbon dioxide monitor is going to go off every time I use my SodaStream..?
Perhaps, I think google+ can.
But they couldn't stop anyone taking a screenshot containing the photo, and cropping with an image editor.
Any photo of you on the internet will serve. So staying off fb wouldn't help
FB profile pics are just a mask, which might look like the person who owns the account. The cops might have realised this if the picture of a giraffe was used. Or they might have wandered down to the zoo with a step ladder to ask some questions...
When the local bank was robbed by clowns, did they visit all the circuses in town looking for the culprits?
...do a controlled de-orbit while it still had the juice for it?
keep looking, it's there (at least it is now)
They might, but Apple wouldn't.
The carbon contained in a building's structure is not going to be in the air.
Timber is great from this point of view
Quite a lot if it will it be made of reinforced concrete?...
is the 2nd of 2 options, the 3rd of 3 would be the last.
Or on roundabouts - never know whether they're going to exit before you, or carry on round in front of you...
Why would the head surround the beer?
Even if the container were spinning, the head would form nearer the centre of rotation, no?
Cone of Silence. And it never worked. The occupants couldn't hear each other, but everyone else could hear the occupants
I'll get my trenchcoat...
Homophones are on the rise in Russia
Da, comrade, I'll get my coat
