..google can track you, no matter where you are.
If you want to use a pizza analogy, then the buying a pizza and not eating it is wrong.
Closer would be an all you can eat buffet. The shop offers a pig yourself stupid for £9.99
The pizza maker gets paid per slice eaten.
Those that make good pizza's get paid well.
Those that make crap pizza's, not so well.
Doesn't seem so unfair if using that analogy does it?
I thought that, but it's not books that are sold, just subscription models....I think
...it will filter out the utter dross that is out there.
I sort of get the idea behind it..if you write a great book, that is 500 pages long and everyone reads the whole book, why should you get paid the same as someone who writes a load of crap that is 50 pages long and people can't get past page 2.
So I sort of get it, but then again, I can see the argument against it.
I'm going to sit on the fence on this one.
I dunno, some people may just want to use that stonking great screen in their lounge instead of a little piddly one on their lap.
And I'd hardly call and I7 with 16gb RAM low end
Depends what you want, but a reasonable Mico-ITXboard running an AMD processor (these can be happier to run fanless) can be had for a good price on eBay these days.
Build from scratch, as the 2nd hand prebuilt ones go for a premium.
Would that be the single version that is, for example, Mint:
Cinnamon No codecs 32 Bit
Cinnamon No codecs 64 Bit
Cinnamon OEM 32 bit
Cinnamon OEM 64 bit
MATE 32 Bit
MATE 64 Bit
MATE No codecs 32 Bit
MATE No codecs 64 Bit
MATE OEM 32 bit
MATE OEM 64 bit
KDE 32 Bit
KDE 64 Bit
Xfce 32 bit
Xfce 64 bit
So glad only one to chose from....
Oh silly me I forgot LMDE variation of MINT.
MATE 32 Bit
MATE 64 Bit
If Santander or any credit company are reporting you for a single missing payment, then you need a better bank, most won't report until at least 3 missed payments.
You have no idea how it works do you?
I bet most people didn't even know Apple were launching a streaming service, now they do.
"And that's why I know some IT managers who've banned Windows Phone altogether."
That's because they are idiots that listen to the likes of you.
Nokia 635 (personal phone), got updated again at the weekend (already running the latest version)
Samsung S3 (work phone), still waiting after how many years? Despite huge amount of known Vulns, it's still waiting for any updates.
Both on EE
Tell me which is the more secure again?
Any website running on unpatched software.
"Frankly, I'd settle for an easily available board to make it ITX compatible."
So why not buy and ITX system ad have done with it...sheeezzz.
What is point to point?
0 - 100 - 0 and back again, your right a GTR is the one you want, but not the one you are thinking of:
But you may want the new improved model:
Not the massive database breach they discovered a week or so ago that they failed to notice for a year or more.
And how is Google better?
Both are advertising agency obsessed with tracking your every move.
Maybe for a sales bod, but for me, and most techies in this office 15 to 17" please....and then it's a struggle unless dual screened up.
"he specs are usually awful for the price. "
Really? So £199 plus £30 rebate for reasonable spec HP laptop is bad?
I use Wiki, but have not donated. Until they are more transparent I have no intention of doing so.
The same reason I don't give to 90% of charities that I would otherwise consider.
Going by the figures it was some time ago, when fibre splicing was an art form and often done from cab to end point. And who says it was their land?
We've had ISDN's take weeks to fix in the past.
...clearly, as always the case round here, people like to slag something iff they don't have a fuckign clue about.
1. Cortana is EASY to turn of. You click the button.
2. IT DOES NOT NEED YOU TO TALK TO IT. You can just type.
3. IT DOES NOT NEED TO TALK TO YOU. It can pop up alerts or just sit there as a live tile.
It is simply a organiser with a simple interface, so you can be reminded you need to go to a meeting in 30 minutes and you need to leave now, or pick up the milk on the way home, or the local boozer is doing a 2 for 1 on Loopy Jacks Ale.
Don't like it, don't use it....it's that simple people.
I like it, so I use it, but it doesn't spend half the day talking to me.
How to remove?
Click the button to turn it off....
But I guess your used to a 3000 word cmd line?
I think you missed the irony.
...on looks alone.
Granted the 200 speakers you seem to need these days will still be pig ugly.
Bang on cue.
Two down votes after 9am (until this point), along with all the ones slagging off Google. Well at least we know how many accounts they have now.
..loads of negativity towards Google and no downvotes at this stage?
Is the PR department running late this morning?
I think Java has now switched to trying to default your home page to yahoo.
Yes I know, we'll give up our extremely successful multi-billion pound business, write a Linux distro from scratch and give it away for free.
Yup sounds like a great idea.
Really are people on this forum that naive / stupid?
"Expect the ad agencies to come up with "ingenious" new ways to bypass ad blockers and the like some time soon"
A 30% cut of revenue slung Apples way should sort that little issue.
...but what gets dropped?
We hear from hundreds of different self vested organisations and groups about "this NEEDS to be on the curriculum" but in order to do these hundreds of other things, hundreds of other things need to be dropped.
Have it as a Lunch club, or after school club fines, but a core skill? Really?
Or get a short-throw projector that turns any whiteboard into a touchscreen for about $1,800 (or less)
Have you used them? Thought not. They are shit.
I agree, we have those interactive white boards with projection onto them.
Apart from people using standard markers on them and the joys that brings, they are just crap.
....so long as i can listen on ALL of his calls, y'know, just in case someone is going to attack him.
And VULN discovered in 3...2....1
Yes it Tech Website 2.0, where knowledge is what you heard off a bloke in the pub. Wouldn't be so bad, but it's KERB FFS.
So just to clarify, it's Flash Networks and Bharti Airtel that are alleged to be involved in this this Ad injection, and Flash Networks lawyers, but not Bharti Airtel laywers, have issued a cease and desist order, to prevent Flash Networks and Bharti Airtel being named. Additionally the laywers for Flash Networks, but not for Bharti Airtel issued a take down noticed for Github, where a screen shot for the the alleged Ad injection by Flash Networks and Bharti Airtel could be found.
Flash Networks and Bharti Airtel have yet to comment to The Reg, who have asked Flash Networks and Bharti Airtel for comment about ad-injection that Flash Networks and Bharti Airtel may be involved in?
Is that correct?
Yes, yes he does.
So your Linux box has never had any updates?
If not, please unplug from the Internet now.
Or are you one of these asshats that think <insert OS> can do everything better than every other OS.
It's the other way round, in the People app, all your contacts from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Hotmail (outlook) and some others are in one place. So for example, if I need to phone Uncle Fred who I've never called before, so happens to have added his phone number in his Facebook account and shared with family, hey presto, I can call him. And that Techie I need to get hold of? Bugger don't have his details to hand...oh yes I do, he's shared his email via LinkedIn.
It's actually bloody useful at times.
Apart from Lego these days is more like build what it says in the instructions and that's pretty much it.
I had all three, a couple more and I would of had the Village people.
...and unlike LEGO, it's still pretty much the same as ever, updated, but still the same principles.
My youngest daughter loves her Playmobil Car and Caravan set and plays with it almost daily.
EASY, put the firmware chip in a socket, to 'fix', replace the chip in the socket with the fixed version.
And how do you do that when the hardware is 2000 miles away?
And if there is a bug in the firmware, how is it fixed?
What does HTTPS have to do with IPv6?
Looks like someone needs to learn how to download software correctly.
This is an IT site, not MumsNet.
Now if you were to rant how download sites bundle it with a load of crap, people would back you up.
Have an up vote for this bit...
"el reg s not nice to use from a phone..."
"It doesn't matter where someone is, I can message them, call them, video chat them, or incite them to a group video chat. Nothing else offers this."
Add whiteboard,arrange a meeting, desktop or programme share and email and you then you have Lync,.
Worse than the bloody Nazi's they are.
Yes! I Win.
I live in a village in the midland and can state they do do this. The difference is you may not notice, as we lost power lines. So they hooked them up after the break and power was restored. However unless you saw the bloody great containers in a field, you would be none the wiser and just presume the lines were fixed.
BTW, relying on power being shipped in is not a DR plan, but just a bit of one, for one scenario.
