...in a world of rising food prices, what we need is more agricultural land turned over to Biofuels.
Hint: If you are unaware, this is one of the major reasons crop prices are so high and as corn is also a major live stock food, why meat prices are also high.
A good balanced article...
...here is the reason they are doing better.
Investement in the long term.
They have been pouring money into education (go to any UK Russell Uni group and see how many PhD students are Chinese, and have been for many years), into research and into acquisitions. It put nearly every country to shame.
As for the pathetic US proganda of Ooohh it's funded by the Chinese army, so who cares, NASA, Lockhead Martin, Boeing, all bank rolled by the US military, but I don't see anyone bitching about that.
Re: Whats missing
And you think that stops the gullible?
Some people are so blinkered by new builds and a scared of a bit of hard work, they overlook the older ones, with bigger gardens, better areas and a lot better built.
I know this for a fact as where I live houses back onto the M42 and near where I used to live several years ago they are virtually under the M5.
Yes the old area is a crap hole:
Re: The application suggests nobody wants office space on the scale IBM will vacate
Don't forget Standard Life's and RBS's lovely offices as well.
Because, being the grumpy cynic that I am, they wanted to get there "Advertise x number of items for free" campaign under way before driving traffic to their site for their password reset.
Good old bury the bad news with the "good"
... it will be nothing like the current situation in 5 years time, but neither is it like it was 5 years ago either. That's the thing with technology it keeps changing.
Still I'm glad these people have solved the minor issue of moving 10's of gigs of data up and down from the cloud each day.

You mean this?

Anger management courses are freely available. I suggest you take one little child.
Can we have a "you need a hug icon?"
Re: Harden your browser
Install SRWare Iron.
To be fair...
..it's obsolete and if your stuck with it, your either on XP, so we all know that's unsupported or server 2003, in which case, WTF are you doing surfing dodgy websites?
Ignore the lowest and the highest and you may get a better idea.
Re: And you thought...
Erm yes it is more secure.
This hack is just a (huge) Tad more difficult than copying a mag stripe and a bit of a scribble.
you can get a static IP with BT.
Re: Just needs one test case
So if BBC news says your a paedophile on the web, publishes your photo and address, then it's just hearsay and is inadmissible.?
"I only want broadband"
Feel free and get one, they are out there. Costs are the pretty much the same though so you may as well have the voice as a back up.
This is about as newsworthy
as what you find on Yahoo.
XSS flaws are standard programming protocol for Yahoo.
It most likely will be unpatched. End of life tends to mean that.
99% of people can uninstall.
Re: Happy to have EMEA
EMEA is a standard term, along with BRICS which makes that one look puny.
...above ground level or terrain level?
Some thing tells me by the time you've flown over 30 odd cars, following their profiles, you may feel a level queasy....and the school kids will love the look on you face as your nose spatters into the top window of a double decker bus.

I use SW Iron, can't say I found any content that doesn't play.
Re: Any downsides to not supporting DRM?
You'll find that your browser stops displaying shit loads of content.
So the Yanks don't sanitize the water from the reservoir before drinking it? Euuughh.
Just so glad that fish don't shit and poo in it.
Excellent and your Open Source equivalent is?
At least this My-Pad is better designed than the Amercian One
I mean, just look, talk about a lack of taste. Now pass the sick bucket.
Re: More importantly
The flip side is you could be waiting 24 hours for it to get the, if at all. Text is a best effort services and is the 1st thing to be dropped under network load.
Re: Cue the Next Controversy
See my post above, they make no difference that can't be gained by an ill fitting one. Most good swimmers (females at least) wear swimsuits that are way to small for them...
Re: From the archives (2009)
And debunked later on:
....here we go again, my games console is better than your games console...nah nah na naaah naaaaahhh.
What time does scholl start, I think some may be late.
Seriously, grow up.
I love the comment here.
I you provide real world example how people actually LIKE the new interface, you WILL without fail, get down voted, because as often proven, "techies" are so set in their own bloody mindset, everyone else has to listen to them, as they now best.
And that ladies and gentlemen, is why IT gets such a bloody bad name.
In our office of "Techies" of about 80 people, network guys, server guys, programmers, telecoms, support. The VAST majority or people actually prefer Win8 once they have go use to it.
And in the youth club where we put in some win 8 machines next to some 7 machines, the Win 8's are far more popular.
So just because YOU don't like change, doesn't mean everyone else doesn't
And roll in the downvote
Re: Things are hidden :-(
@Bert...My WiFi is set up with MAC address filtering (so the neighbours can't use it to download pirate grumble flics).......etc etc...
The issue isn't Windows, it YOU. If you rely on a MAC filtering, which is SHIT, instead of WPA2, then, trust me, no OS is going to help.
So another company...
...that will be completely fucked up by Yahoo.
Cue the usual (mis-informed) post...
...about how they legally have to maximise profits.
And a better upside...
..you don't have to have a bloody charger with you at all times....
14 hours talk time
Approx 15 DAYS standby.
...sorry, unexpected old bag in the seating area.
Re: This wouldn't have happened...
Pah we know Speecy's are rubbish and that the BBC MicroB is a proper home computer....
(Yes I was a speccy owner, but I have to provide the same load of juvenile bollocks still spouted today, just to keep us on track).
And whilst ranting.....
...will it magically reduce the 3 -4 hours round trip it takes via public transport down to the 1 hour by car (which would be better if the $%^&*() buses didn't stop every 10m and reduce the price by about 75%?
Yet they still bloody bang on about how great public transport it. Try living NOT in a city.
..but it will it tell us the trains are still on running time despite not having them for 3 days the last heavy snowfall?
Certainly the rail companies were unable to do this. Simply due to the fact they were reaching that last point of the auto update system but getting no further and going back, so to the crappy automated system, they looked like they were all ok, in fact many were running 20 minutes ahead.
According to his lawyer, the sweetener wasn’t in a written contract,
and he told me he'd give me a billion dollars. All my mates heard it as well.
And it will be in realty...
..the same as every other concept car out there.
They look lovely until you realise you can't actually turn the front wheels due to the tyres catching the arches, so it ends up being the same as every other car out there.
Re: Barmy (@Psyx)
If they can't do the time they shouldn't do the crime...
Just remember, Ghandi, King and Mandella were all convicted criminals.
As a side note, the ThinkTank in Birmingham is building a new Spitfire exhibition and wants objects and stories related to it.
Are they interested in multi-billion pound Tech industries, or Phama's, or Military installations? These use routers and firewalls as well you know?
Ok I may be going mad..or something changed
But I got my 8.1 from Windows update, so has something changed?
I know this because I nearly choked when I saw the size of the download.
the US could do a much better thing than worrying about gadgets in cars.
Stop producing such utterly crap cars! Seriously, I've driven many US cars and the only half decent ones are the ones designed outside of the US, even then you fear at any time the door may fall off.
Re: I'd love to see them try this in Australia
I'd love to see this in the UK, where huge chunks of the country struggle to get 2g, let alone 4g.
No, the flight plan was submitted correctly, but the automated system didn't have that high a figure in it's system, so it tried to guess it.
No manual error here, it was fully automated.
A 10% increase over a few thousand processors it not exactly a small jump.
If your that paranoid about this, don't buy a "smart" TV.
There, not that hard was it.
And those that lock their phones to only install from Google Play are a bunch of mindless sheep.
