The biggest issue with this idea...
would be the fact it's likely to be the likes of Google that would buy it <shudder>

I hardly being prosecuted for tossing off in public a puritan value.
...key government figures don't want this to happen,.
So by opening the UK DC, MoD is a now a new customer. The issue is?
And any PLC has a legal duty to the shareholders to return as much profit as possible to the shareholders. The CEO could be jailed in extreme circumstances for not doing so.
Renationalisation, so that service takes precedence over profit, is the answer.
Says someone with rose tinted glasses.
Trains were shit,smelly and extremely unreliable.
The issue isn't who runs them, but how they are run.
Tories will run them on a bare minimum
Labour will over-staff them and be at the whim of the Unions.
"Doesn't this somewhat undermine the Southern plan to remove conductors from trains?"
No this underpins it. He had to give up because he isn't allowed to run the train without one.
It's not an common thing to actually run trans in the rest of the country without one and the argument of the conductor having a better view is a little lame, the driver gets off backside, presses button to close. Doors ether close or don't, driver gets back in and pulls off.
It's not like the old days when you had to physically check the doors are shut.
". I know, sounds "normal" to you, maybe because you use Windows and are fine with using other computers to download ethernet/wifi drivers "
Don't think I've done that since early XP.
Updated ones, yes, but working ones? Nope.
Just checked the "blog" for Birmingham. Ideas for Christmas and Valentines in there. So they may want to update their site before their logo. To me, that smacks of a business that's shut down.
" This signal could take the form of a flashing blue arrow, perhaps."
Well that's a few million quid for starters.
Next they'll be giving out the names of the people in charge of MI5 and GCHQ !
Many later Business Compaq's switched to LS120's, but I think I was the only person that actually used them, as Many preferred ZIP drives.
Maybe the The Reg could some journalism, instead of re-posting crap about sniffing wi-fi signals.
"The only thing that will be moved will be the shell corporations and a whole lot less money will come into the Irish and UK banking sector as it will probably move to some other offshore entity."
I think that you'll find that London is one of the biggest tax-haven loving, money laundering friendly, shell company loving places in the world.
"I am presuming that 'democratising the internet' does not extend so far as Mr Corbyn using Virgin Media .. given his recent experience with Virgin Trains."
Would that be where he ignores 50 high speed connected houses in the street and goes to try and use it in the shed, in the overgrown garden, using a wet bit of string?
"Time for Auntie Beeb to make this a game show - Drone Wars"
Airmageddon - CBBC
Although not quite Robot Wars level of violence.
Of course, most EE contracts are capped, but lets gloss over that.
I wish I could upvote and downvote at the same time.
While the last part is valid and true (although the use of present tense when describing Google and Facebook as startups is a little confusing), the first part is utter bollocks.
"This is also incorrect. "but you're only going to get it if you're running one of the newer models of the firm's Nexus devices.""
Factually correct. If you are running an older (by old, read still perfectly functioning and usable). Nexus you are not going to get the update.
Agreed, look at the grief MS get for dropping support after a decade!
Depends if its the basic free office (which has been around on the web for years) or a more advanced version.
Isn't that the same for most companies?
The OP was correct. Often rotting carcasses or infected animals were thrown in to spread disease.
Wiki has some answers, but been many other sources quoted for this:
Operation Phoneupthearse. This is not America.
Not sure about you, but I was on about the issue of smuggling contraband in via an old donkey.
I thought as a general rule, operational names were supposed not to be related to the subject.
I guess this runs in parallel to Operation Phoneuptheass
Are you implying they have been waiting for an excuse to gather more data?
I do think MS, Google, Apple and Facebook are in a competition to see how much personal data they can gather, before being pulled up on it, only to find a new way of getting even more info.
"> legal obligation to report information if they suspect a crime has been committed
There is no such thing.
"Confidential medical care is recognised in law as being in the public interest. However, there can also be a public interest in disclosing information: to protect individuals or society from risks of serious harm, such as serious communicable diseases or serious crime; "
54. Such a situation might arise, for example, when a disclosure would be likely to assist in the prevention, detection or prosecution of serious crime, especially crimes against the person. When victims of violence refuse police assistance, disclosure may still be justified if others remain at risk, for example, from someone who is prepared to use weapons, or from domestic violence when children or others may be at risk.
56. You should participate in procedures set up to protect the public from violent and sex offenders. You should co-operate with requests for relevant information about patients who may pose a risk of serious harm to others
I agree, but I think the fact he thought he "may" of raped someone means the GP has a duty to report.
Most sexual abuse is carried by someone known to the victim.
Therefore impose this to everyone that has contact with another person....just in case.
yes, but they can't be arsed about those, no money in it.
..is that what the button in Iron is for.
...I know that girls email address. Now I can find her physical address and wait for her.
No joke icon, as is the sort of nasty thing that could happen.
...where in the graph is NEVER?
"Just be glad they didn't ban him from taking a dump, eating or breathing."
That's next on the cards.
Yes, but it's best to have a crap password for sites that don't employ any sort of security, such as posting on tech website forums.
Like many will say here, it's stating the bleeding obvious.
Password1! = Great

I have 4G around 80mps on a BAD day and I live in Worcestershire
But then again, I can walk to the BT exchange and mobile towers in less than 2 minutes.
Nokia have been doing carrier equipment for a very long time, along with Ericsson and Huwawei.
See, Google once again copying Microsoft.
So you have to use Edge, on mobile, to qualify?
And give up all privacy while doing so?
You mean Chrome on Android doesn't do that?
Oh sorry forgot, they are all as bad as each other.
"And I wont mention the one Vauxhall Zafira a friend got in to that had on one side the Uber sign and right next to it the sign for a local cab company. Again, against Ubers rules."
Many of the Cab company cars are also Uber drivers. I often see both markings on the cars.
Ah the "knowledge".
Is that the bizarre thing where I can't get a cab to go from one side of a bridge to another, yet somehow I can get a taxi from Birmingham to Worcester, via to other two other towns on the way, with no problem at all?
...I'm highly offended my the video I haven't watched and a demand everyone is sacked, just after being forced to make a pointless apology. I demand that it is removed from YouTube and it's the BBC's fault that the migrants are forcing us to have bi-weekly bin collections. You want to see what videos like this do to house prices!
So things like light bulbs that can only use the vendors own after a firmware update was forced on the users
Or the baby monitors that are hacked and spy on people?
Or how about the door locks that have such poor security you can open them without even touching them?
Ooo how about the cars speed and steering controls than can be remotely controlled?
"Your car is a big expensive IoT "thing" that needs connectivity and it needs it globally."
Your right, for the last 100+ years it's been completely impossible to travel to another country without the car being completely rebuilt. That trip to France was a nightmare, the engine was stripped down, the wheels had to be replaced and a whole new interior was fitted, just so it would work. And then I had to do all the same, just to come back. Nightmare!
Oh wait, no it worked absolutely fine.
And prat tell, what will be the resale value on the car when it no longer works because it's running Android version and google dropped all support for it in 2018. Your SatNav no longer works, the in car entertainment refuses to play and the remote start doesn't work with any phone made after 2017.
Welcome to pointless tat.
You may have more knowledge than me but the quote...
"and further invest in key priority areas such as security, IoT, collaboration"
Kind of show they are not culling the IoT shite.
That technology already is available today and has been around for a long time. It's called a Taxi.
We are NOT going to make hardware again, but several vendors are. We will be supporting the hardware and design development for at least the next 5 years.
Then we wouldn't have this crazy situation where no one know if there will be another phone out next year.
There are several nice and original Chinese phones out there, but there seems to be no decent advertising or commitment from MS.
This way we can all continue to enjoy free websites. (Except the windows user's who get pwned)
Just for balance.
..it's a great way of finding our what pointless bit of shit our directors will want, without knowing what it exactly is and how we will use it.
