...the police will be round with a sledgehammer to smash it up.
I really hope you are joking and not that stupid?
You don't have to use Java for HP's these days, you can use .net as well.
Feel free to choose which one you want to lock into.
"running an app that uses its camera to scan a QR code printed on a fabric care tags. This QR code contains all of the care information for that article of clothing,""
So the picture of an iron with some dots on is too hard? Or the machine icon with a 30 degree symbol.
Sledge hammer and nuts.
I think that is the issue, the hard reset is not working.
Just to balance things, I've had the same with an Android phone where it "died" with the little dead robot and the button combos just failed to work.
...those that don't care for the pro's of Geo-blocking will download the content for free and they all lose.
They need to sort something out.
" 5+ year old Macbook in to them (failed HDD) and they replaced (and re-installed OS X and showed how to restore from Time Machine)"
They removed a removable part. That is not what is being discussed here.
" In the latter case, as an obligatory minimum treatment requirement, batteries and accumulators should be removed from the collected waste electrical and electronic equipment. "
Make sure you dump your old, kit, especially if not working, at your nearest Apple store.
So if someone had photos of themselves having sex with minors, or killing someone on a video, but in each case the victims face was covered, they couldn't be charged?
"...but I prefer to buy devices where I can actually patch any vulnerabilities and recompile the firmware."
And for the other 99.999999999999% of the worlds population?
So your saying, you are going to follow your local stores just in case there is an offer you may want that day?
Talk about noise.
"...use of digital tech such as mobile, social media, cloud, big data,while 41 per cent say they are not using any of them."
Yup the local green grocers, newsagents, farmer, butchers. They need all those, especially big data.
One day we will wake up and go "where did it all go wrong?"
Lets not forget the outrage caused when Win8 ARM devices were secure boot (Intel versions it was optional).
The OS is not so relevant as before as here is the KEY bit:
"NCR reckons it went back to the drawing board – to get off the upgrades and support treadmill and a thin-client using Android was the answer."
Thin client. So almost any OS would have done.
Work-Force Management for Robots.
Next same patents but for autonomous Taxis, Lorrys, trains and so on.
Why would I want a 120 landfill Android phone that has millions of useless apps and costs £60 a year after year one (in addition to mobile contracts of course)
Why would I want an os that is so inflexible I have to change to what it does.
Why would I want a phone that's going to superseded by a new one next week and this one bargain bin landfill?
Do you really need it on a phone with a 5 inch sceen? Really?
So long they get the lag down, it's a bit of a non-issue.
I really like the Winphone GUI, it feels weird at first, but once you get to it, Android and IoS feel so damn clunky. There are still some oddities, but I find it the "nicest" to use by far.
And Microsoft gave it's browser and "standards" dominance on it's desktop and made it hard for others to compete. What was the issue there?
I don't think the issue is the release of patches, but the sheer size of them.
..I keep getting to
""The App Store ignited an app ecosystem that is simply amazing, forever changing the lives of customers and creating millions of jobs worldwide,""
I then have to run to the toilet and vomit.
pay over and over to get the service, or pay once and fix yourself.
Ah yeah the old CapEx vs Opex rearing it head again.
...to store all the animated gifs, flash videos and pictures of Kim Kardashen it uses to fill it "news" pages.
I thought that as it states that the critter died....well if it did indeed bounce off, I'd expect it to have some nasty bruising, but not much more.
As posted above, I've and ITX with this (total cost about £60 from fleabay for the bits).
The Lite version is OK, but is it is light. For example, torrent sites are not blocked and porn is hit and miss. So for torrents, feel free to manually add about 100 domains, to minimize the availability. It's a bit of a workaround rather than a fix. The paid for version is quite expensive for a annual running cost and is not really suited for this size set up.
I'm still setting it up (this is a new set up, but used it in the past), so will need to try this little known trick (Google really do hide this)
Turn on SafeSearch VIP
To force SafeSearch for your network, you’ll need to update your DNS configuration. Set the DNS entry for www.google.com (and any other Google ccTLD country subdomains your users may use) to be a CNAME for forcesafesearch.google.com.
We will serve SafeSearch Search and Image Search results for requests that we receive on this VIP.
I've never had an issue on the many machines I've run it on, however I have found that you should allow the home page onto the allowed list as it can be laggy to start with.
..Is this a registered charity?
If so you then can get yourself along to TT-exchange and get yourself some stupidly cheap licenses.
If you DO decide to go windows, what about K9 protection on the pc's? Dead cheap, hosted in the cloud and rock solid.
you could get Untangle running on a micro-itx box (dual NIC's required) and install the "Lite" versions + say webcache addon. Although the content filter is nowhere near as good as say K9's unless you use the paid for versions, it still does a much better job in my experience than the like of OpenDNS family filters, which is piss easy to get around.
It's all bollocks. If they fail to meet the targets, they'll just pretend it never happened or it's because of <insert opposition party>
How about this.
For everything we fail to deliver on, each person that voted for us can punch me in the face.
So you have no issue with the Police rocking up and rifling through your cupboards and drawers, just in case y'know?
Just modify a couple of pixels (not together) in a couple of frames slightly, each unique to the release.
Not sure how compression would affect it though.
A bit like the yellow dots on laser printers.
...how much will the time-share cost again?
Slap a load of bad ass hydro-jets to the platform and get this into place...pronto!
Read all about it.
"Investors" want to asset strip and sell off business for quick profit.
Or is this pretty basic schoolboy physics?
Push you had slowly on a thick liquid it goes in easily, smack it hard and your more likely to break your hand then go in deeply.
You may be surprised to find a huge quantity of lettuces are not grown in fields.
Here is a typical lettuce "field"
There are loads of examples of large data centres outside of the London, heck, just look at the telco's.
It not hard to Google (oh look Ireland, Finland, Belgium and the Netherlands) and find loads out there from a few dozen racks to a few thousand.
If anything the one place in the UK NOT to put a DC is bloody London.

Can we have a Muppet icon?
"Leaving aside the fact that I'm paying for a contract, which I would assume would require me to be 18 or older, my operator still enabled it by default ...".
It's been a "legal" requirement to block Porn on mobile phones for a long,long time.
"The difference between this and the other types of payment service is that the merchant does not see your card details. Thus they can't track your shopping habits! For the likes of Tesco this is not good. I will very surprised if they sign up for apple Pay at launch."
Yes I'm even more surprised they accept that "Cash" thing, I mean that doesn't even have a unique WiFi / Bluetooth signal that can be tracked around the store.
"What is the point of dodging the tax then?"
To kill off the competition and to strike deals to return some of the money, but only if the government promise to reduce the amount of tax they have to pay.
..much different to the thousands of other extensions and apps out there?
I agree actually, those covering their faces in the west are clearly out to cause trouble and deserve everything they get.
...an estate car without fold flat / double flip seats.
Why do manufacturers still do this? You load up a few items and create huge stress points at the fold.
Because it's not an Audi or BMW?
Crap how did you find out the Admin password to the internet?
"I want a super 7 with no tech"
I dunno, some 7's (and their relatives) can be quite high tech. Carbon Fibre bodies, dual engines, even leccy ones if you want.
Still having a cheapo 7 style car destroy a Porsche or Ferrari around the track is always fun.
You don't need an electronic handbrake for hill start assistance.
My car has hill start assist without it.
If you take your child to the zoo or any of the other activities mention when you've called in sick, then you're an idiot...
And most likely to be unemployed shorty afterwards.
