But to be fair, you have to ignore the bloody massive warning box you get to enable Macro's AND the one to enable downloaded content but yes people are that dumb.

The 435 sorted the forward camera issue and is a very good entry level phone.
" guess the difference is, apple phones are £800, the nexus 5x and 6p cost half that and destroy the latest apple offerings"
And my Nokia cost £50 and supports up to 128gb...
So whats the excuse again?
Re: Error 500 - Internal Error
I haven't had that issue at all.
Re: You know how this could have been resolved?
It's the populations that are disarmed and helpless that have the problem.
I love how people such as yourself love to ignore the facts.
"The study, which was released Wednesday, shows that gun owners committed only 259 “justifiable homicides” involving a gun, compared to 8,342 criminal gun homicides in 2012. This brings the ratio to about 32 criminal gun homicides for every one justifiable gun homicide."
"Packing heat may backfire. People who carry guns are far likelier to get shot – and killed – than those who are unarmed, a study of shooting victims in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has found."
"A recent meta-analysis concluded what many people already knew: the availability of firearms is a strong risk factor for both homicide and suicide. But the study came to another conclusion that is rarely mentioned in the gun control debate: females are uniquely impacted by the availability of a firearm. Indeed, the study found that women with access to firearms become homicide victims at significantly higher rates than men."
You know how this could have been resolved?
Well, it's the NRA's stock (ahem) answer to all gun problems in the the USA.
Stop with the cyber...
....otherwise I'll have to roll my NT4 box back to 23:59 December 31th 1999 and then you'll be sorry!
Re: Never mind the fines, think of the SAVINGS
" Give me any good reason why you need such software in testing?"
The same reason you may run a jet engine at 150% of it's required maximum power, the same reason you may want to run a CPU at 80% constantly , same reason you may want to run air conditioning at 5 degrees c.
You then can set a benchmark to compare your real world results against,
This may of been set to test the engine, and NOT the emissions.
Re: @Lost all faith "..........setting up a new company outside of Europe................"
Notice I said "some" morals quite deliberately.
All morals go out when to comes to the arms trade, where the general consensus seems to be if we don't sell to them, someone else will, so we may as well make the money.
"... Hacking Team chief exec David Vincenzetti expressed support for the idea of setting up a new company outside of Europe and away from the reach of tighter export controls....."
Let me translate that for you
"....Hacking Team chief exec David Vincenzetti expressed support for the idea of setting up a new company outside of Europe and away from the reach of people with at least some morals"
...on how these no-namers are a year down the road.
I bought a no-name tablet which was not bad at the time (about a gen behind the big names), but after a year, the battery was shot, would only charge via USB (and not the power supply) and then the screen went wonky.
It would be nice to see a "used" review somewhere, where devices a year old are reviewed.
I does have an over-ride of sorts. It keeps smashing the oiks car until its is no longer touching it.

Re: @sabroni (was: ::yawns::)
No you didn't Jake, you said anyone that needed it already has it and has since 1980.
And your method is cumbersome and awkward for 99.999% of of NORMAL people. Protonmail has made it piss easy to use, hence they are ones supporting it.

Re: What is it with the reg...
Are they? They both involve copyright protection and enforcement.
What is it with the reg...
...one article is moaning how a photographer (and photography in general) is being bullied by the likes of Wikipedia and how they are eroding copyright, then another article appears to sympathise with a guy ripping of someone's design for profit?
Re: It might because because its early so I apologise
So if you designed something, you'd be happy for people to rip it off and make money for it?
What happens if the jet ignites and give someone major burns, hows that for the publicity?
What about if there a suddenly 20 million knock offs on the road and it becomes boring and no longer "special?"
As I said it's one thing to make it for yourself, but another to sell it for profit.
Agree, the issue was not the fact he was copying it, the issue was he was copying it and selling it.
I once wrote of to a mega-corp to see if I could make a copy of something and take it to shows. They willingly gave me a "free" licence, with plenty of terms on it, including non-resale or not for profit clauses.
The issue with the Beeb..
...is it doesn't seem to be full of yes men.
no one with the balls (high enough up) to simply go...sorry, that's just crap.
I can imagine they sit in endless meetings, seeing what the latest buzz thing is, going Oooo we need some of that, oh and that, and that...
Hey but I like Ballet, can we add ballet to it...good idea,
I like jazz....Ooo ok Jazz Ballet, great idea, but we need the kids to like it,
OK Jazz Ballet with a rapper, streamed on Youtube with a live twitter feed,
But what apbout the older demographic? OK Jazz ballet with a rapper, streamed on Youtube with a live twitter feed, filmed in a statley home....
But won't that seem elitist?
Good point....OK how about....Jazz ballet with a rapper, streamed on Youtube with a live twitter feed, filmed in a statley home with a community choir, ooo full of black kids in hoodies?
What about a positive image for women?
Jazz ballet with a rapper, streamed on Youtube with a live twitter feed, filmed in a statley home with a community choir, ooo full of black kids in hoodies and women in the background doing manual labour?
Hold on, it the year of coding.
Well that easy.....
5 days later....
So we agree....
Jazz ballet with a rapper, streamed on Youtube with a live twitter feed, filmed in a stately home with a community choir, full of black kids in hoodies with plenty of women (not in any way dressed in a way men would find appealing) in the background doing manual labour, with an interactive app, so the audience can vote which Celeb joins in with the cake baking being simulcast in a remote African village full of refugees.
Next on the agenda, shutting down the extremely popular and highly regarded Cbeebies and CBBC channels due to funding cuts.
day 2, put it all back because you found all your staff can no longer work.
I'll do it..
....just like many other directors in the Public sector, I'll take the cash, fuck everything up and blame the underresourced staff for not working 23 hr shifts.
Then take my golden parachute of 10x my salary.

Yup the land of 5 9's or better. One day the rest of the computing world will catch up...
Just checking uptime on our last bit of legacy kit....yup 2000+ days. A lightning strike mean't we had to take it down for 15 mins to replace a power unit...no no, don't get me wrong it was still running, but the sparky didn't like working on live kit, otherwise it would be about 3000+
Re: how many of the MEPs were from the UK
They'll be even less (read none) if some people get their way.
Ok compare us to Romania
Creaking infrastructure, large countryside but still has dense conurbations.
"According to a top made by Bloomberg in 2013, Romania is ranked 5th in the world and 2nd in Europe in terms of internet connection speed, being surpassed by Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan. Average peak speed 37.4 Mbit/s. In Akamai's The State of the Internet Report covering the fourth quarter of 2012, Romania came 4th on average peak connection speed by EMEA country/region."
Re: Not completely mad
"Now I wonder which of us is evilest?"
The one that tried to get off with the receptionist of course (yes think about that one).
I'd actually see ad serving more like the following (using a pub, this time).
You go into a pub and the beer and food is fine.
The pub lets a bloke come in every Friday to sell some some fruit and veg and takes a tiny percentage of the takings
After years of nothing happening, the bloke unknowingly sells some apples laced with Arsenic.
Is the pub owner liable for letting this bloke use his premises to sell his goods?

Re: Weasel words
Why ancient: See the other Reg article about Android malware being used:
"The trio say the attack builds its network of customers by tricking them to install malware that gains root access on some 308 different handsets running virtually all versions of the Android operating system from Gingerbread (2.3.4) to the lastest stable Lollipop (5.1.1) build."
I'm with you (as posted there), I'd love this malware code that can root, seemingly very easily.
Re: Google Play immune?
Play has had plenty of compromised Apps in the past, so don't feel left out if you own an Android device.
Is there a way...
...I can get of of this app that roots your device so easily. It's a PITA to do on most phones.
Many companies also forget their legal requirements
A dining table is not just unsuitable because of family life.

Regulations 2 to 7 apply to protect users, whether they are employed to work:
(a) at their own employer’s workstation;
(b) at a workstation at home; or
(c) at another employer’s workstation.
There are also rules around chairs (must be movable) and other furniture,

Climbing a mounting only to come back down again; kicking a ball into a net, only to have it put back into the middle; turning cards over to go snap; making a cake that costs 10x the price of one from a shop; writing a program to run on a bit of hardware you built, that performs worse than an off the shelf one for half the price.

"and a new "nightstand" mode to display a clock face while the Watch is charging at night."
A watch that shows the time.
I'm stunned at this "innovation"
" if you want redundancy have two machines in one location then use them to "hit off" against each other, "
This room has big boys in, you may want to think about being so clever.
we have 1000+ servers (excluding VM's) across multiple countries. You may not want to "hit off" (whatever the fuck that means) for that many servers , for the sake of an LO module.
Explain to a customer why you have to travel to godforsaken land land to press a power switch because the server has become completely unresponsive and it will be up again tomorrow once we've pressed the power button.
Guess you've never heard of 5 9's SLAs?
