Buy Batteries from eBay
Buy stationary from Staples
Buy Equestrian equipment from Sweaty Saddles
Are these Ads Correct?
...but this looks like it has the key thing missing from many I look at these days...Fun.
More like a porcelain seated cubicle.
Guerrilamail is your friend.
This is no different to audio in Audacity and many, many other programs.
You open a file, say a Wav, it then become a project file once you start using it, so you can do roll backs, layers, cuts and pastes.
Once you are finished, you "export" the project file to a flat file.
So in that point, they were a little late in rolling it out.
So you swapped one corporate data munching behemoth for two others. Well done.
OpenDNS is really poor at blocking adult content.
"it was really easy"
Was that it was really easy to get around?
Don't believe me, just search for a certain lady parts in Google Images and see how easy it is to get around.
I'd highly recommend K-9 protection for pc access.
For mobiles etc, it gets more messy, although MS family filter does an OK job. Not sure if there is other stuff for Android or iPhone that you can't get around in 5 seconds
"letting fanbois use Apple Maps to find their way around public transport networks."
Is that in the same as Here Transit on Windows Phone?
Labour held a far larger majority and they couldn't push this shit through when they tried.
OK humble pie time.....your right it needs location services on.
Ok thanks for sharing that. Feel free to choose your alternative Global power abusing Corp to run instead.
Cortana is dependent upon GPS.
No it's not.
But if you expect it to remind you to pick up the eggs on the way home, get the local gigs, or to tell you top leave for work 30 minutes early due to a traffic jam, then yes you do.
And if you don't like it, it's not exactly the hardest thing to stop using.
Yes, because they have never offered Office on say the Mac or iPhone.
I'm amazed it doesn't simply ask you to download a form and fax it to them.
Yes my cheap as chips 535 does the same....and has a better Sat nav (Here) than the dreadful Google maps, can easily send and listen to texts should I wish to, makes and receive calls and plenty more.
Oh and it works with the Hynundai I have now, but unlike this system, it also works in loads of other cars without having to reload their system.
"as well as being readable in text-only format, more people should IMHO"
You mean doing what the law requires? That would be novel,
totally agree, you should never be gear shifting in a corner (or braking for that). If you are, you got it wrong. ESPECIALLY in a rear wheel drive car (ones without the drivers a Muppet electronic aid).
...if it's a "sports" car...we'll have less of this 10 to 2 driving and a little more 1/4 to 3 if you don't mind.
I have a list.
Seven Style Kit.
That would be the Sochi Olympics, where Vlad, just so happened to have a very expensive holiday home pretending to be a goverment department?
Sorry been done.
You need to add "mobile device" somewhere in the patent to make it new and original.
"We expect most remaining government devices using Windows XP will be able to mitigate any risks,"
I'll put the ICO on speed dial, so we (the tax payers) can pay the fines
I once had to walk through a very dodgy area to do some work. Where did I put my laptop? Aldi carrier bag.
Well what happens is:
The youngster takes a nude selfie of themselves with no intent of passing it on.
This is uploaded to the 3rd party server, and they in turn distribute the child pornography to the parent upon request.
Actually, that gives me an idea...off to Internet Watch Foundation to get them to block it as a potential distributor.
"mSpy is the leading monitoring & safety application in the market for responsible parents."
"mSpy is the leading monitoring & safety application in the market for overbearing, untrusting, paranoid and controlling parents, whose darlings are likely to end up in rehab for crack abuse due to the lack of being allowed to be "just kids""
"While it’s positive to see that staff at ULCC have got the system back up and running, over four hours of ‘complete shutdown’ is not an acceptable time-period in most businesses cases."
DDoS are not that easy a thing to defend against, even some of the biggest names have been wiped out, but this is not exactly a obvious target so being out for 4 hours is no major surprise.
Yes you can take precautions, but it is a risk vs cost basis.
No but the Windows ones do.
"It is unknown how Android versions above 4.3 are affected. Google has been contacted for comment."
I think it will go along with the lines:
"It's fixed in the latest version. We are not going to fix any phones prior to this version"
Granted it will be about 200 words longer, but that will be the general line.
...something called Adobe Flash wants to run on my system????
"When Spotify takes away listener choice it gives itself more control over who gets paid for the music."
Or conversely, it may help promote artists you've never heard of, a bit like Amazon has done for me on many an occasion and therefore actually creating more choice and more artists that get paid.
"Enforce a complex unlock password on the device, and make sure it auto-locks after no more than three minutes of inactivity."
Would anyone like to point him to XKCD?
That's fine, so long as they only take out people under the age of 40 with beards.
""It's not every day you get a cow getting shot in a field nearby"
I think you may be a little surprised how many cows (and sheep) do get shot in a field.
"With Office 365 you can make sure your data is only stored in a specific region. Europe for instance."
I take you haven't been around for the last year? Location makes no difference.
"Regular sample recoveries are a good idea."
You mean you don't have the luxury of restoring data for people on an almost daily basis...lucky you.
TLS? This is the the internet of things, you can take your stinking security and shove it. Open Source and Open Access, that's the way to go.
Love Timmy, aged 21 & 3/4, fresh from Uni.
"These problems arise because users *don't* think of a PC in the same way as a car."
yes they do....
do you check your tyres for damage each day? Do you check them for pressure each week? When was the last time you checked the oil and water levels? How about the wheel alignment and tracking?
Walked round and checked the bulbs?
None of this is required on a test, but still pretty essential stuff people ignore.
"User is browsing really dodgy, NSFW sites which they know darned well they shouldn't be looking at"
Or maybe just a run of the mill compromised server perhaps running a 0-day exploit?
Nah doesn't fit in with your "all users a stupid and should be treated with utter competent"
"and they've just put me onto a faster broadband only package - but for £12 per "
They've been screwing my parents over for years but not letting them know they are on a crap, expensive service (been on them since the Telewest days)
Had a running battle over how new customers, even after 12 intial discount period still get better deal than they can.
Online bod offered an even worse service than if they simply upgraded online, but you cannot get like for like package with new customers, making an upgrade extremely difficult to compare.
Final part will be the canceling the service method.
..it's WAP? Remember that kids?
Also anyone find it ironic that internet.org itself is so image heavy?
Do you have a quota on stock images you have to use in a year?
Could you not get a photo of the actual kid, if you do insist on putting pictures in every article?
If you sent a screenshot, you most likely exceeded the 10k mail attachment size you had in those days.
it's Microsoft, not HP.
...but the versions of Solitaire from Vista onwards are not the same as the earlier versions (trust me my dad complained about it all the time). However you card run the old version by getting an XP machine and copying a few files across and running them...also works on Linux in WINE.
You've clearly never run a website of more than a few pages.
Could you imagine how many people would need to employed for the likes of the BBC or CNN, where pages are added every few minutes?
BTW many search engine do allow you to add pages manually to make sre they get picked up.
...give it a year and wait for our Government to mandate this.
