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.
I'll take your 100mb ZIP Drive...
...and raise you a LS-120.
Now there was a format. A "High" capacity drive that could still read 1.44mb diskettes.
Re: No Problem
Define Evil, it's a question of semantics.
Hitler / Stalin / Pol Pot all probably thought they were doing the right thing.
Re: Offline functionality...
I use NavMan...seem less insistent on spending an hour to go back where I came from if I choose to take a divert but can't stop to re-enter the information. I also prefer the less cluttered interface.
It does have it's quirks, but less than Googles
Re: Why use Helion...
Ac I'm not even a Linux user, but you really are boring the pants off us.
You may not even bother as posting as AC, you posts are so predictable, it's easy to figure it from the same, dull, repetitive low level postings. Heck if you were to take a Turing test, I'm pretty sure you would fail as a human.
Seriously, I've heard off-shored call centre staff stick to a less rigid script.
"If you think about home automation, a lot of those individual applications have been around for years ......" he said "You know about the security side........,"
At which point is wee'd myself a little.
Re: Given its a stealth designed aircraft
The MG-25 could in theory intercept the SR, as it would be rare for the SR to being flown at full speed for long, and certainly armed with a AA-6 Acrid missile, it could take out a 71. Only problem is the Foxbat may be completely knackered afterwards.
All theory of course....
Ok I hope it's bit more unique than this:
"...powering on a device by disabling or immobilizing the button with a lock mechanism."
Like my electric razor then?
Re: Over compromised?
I suppose a compromised chip seems attractive from afar but is it also a demonstrable lack of commitment and will it cost too much?
A bit like when they started making a 64 bit x86 compatible device. That never caught on, unlike the "pure" 64bit Itanium which was a runaway success.
...just been a little bit sick.
Come the revolution, marketeers and patent lawyers 1st.
....all the people having a go at the NSA have done EXACTLY what they wanted, you are all talking about it, after all, no such thing as bad publicity.
If it had been extremely hard to crack, I doubt it would of even made the Tech websites, let alone mainstream media.
Smart arse twaters: 0
Next week, more bait traps.
"or our cloud data and traffic searched for adverts... any of them could do it."
And we know which one it will be...
One problem with Tor
The weak link is the exit nodes....people presume these are the "good" guys. Yes it's scrambled and goes through loads of relays, but if you own enough relays and own enough exit nodes, it's not beyond the computing powers these guys have to put it all back together.
Of course they will say...curse those drug dealers and terrorists using this darknet, we can't find them if they use that...snigger.
Have to agree.....
Tax Disc, perfect.
Renewing my garden waste collection, what a joke.
Go to waste collection, read instructions.
Choose "sundries" from small list of services.
Enter ID. Now is that the customer id or the reference ID? Neither are recognised, still no matter can still pay.
Now choose my address from the empty drop down list......sigh
Enter the fields manually.
Postcode can't have spaces...sigh.
Click pay and all seems ok.
Now enter email for receipt of payment (why didn't you ask fo that when entering all the other details).
So it sort of works, but boy is it so badly thought out.
Now don't even get me on trying to find the school term times and teacher "training" days. Yet to manage that.
But being a bloke....
...he's bound to claim it was actually 7 atoms thick...
Re: Not easy
Soldering? That's welding for girls.
Re: If the UK is really that worried about backdoors...
UK isn't worried, hence much of the UK back-haul runs over Huwawei.
No, NO, NO!
I'm sick to death of going to the "News" sites to see crap like.
#Breaking news in @London, Today #InLondon a #tubestrike has occurred. @TFL say #theywanttoreach an agreement.
Al-Jazeera is the place to go if you still want proper news.
Tweaks every 16 seconds....dead easy in a live, large datacentre.
Drive fail, rebuild RAID, drive fail rebuild RAID, drive fail, rebuild RAID.
See a tweak every 16 seconds.
I have a call from 2005 for you, something about a credit card technology?
Re: In other news...
"In other words, Microsoft has learned their lesson from the IE brouhaha, and now make sure the technologies they want to push are so insinuated in to OS functionality that they can not be removed."
You are getting the two horribly mixed up. .Net is not trying to push out the competition order to get revenue / market share gain, it's a key part of the OS that many MS technologies rely on.
Will you be voting UKIP then?
Just look at the comments and answers section and you have all the material you need. Granted most would be illegal to produce.
Re: Locked Phones
Well if you're locking your phone, you're either peado or a terrorist. Don't believe me? Try refusing to unlock it in the UK.
That old chestnut...
But [NSA whistleblower Edward] Snowden has made it more difficult for law enforcement to hunt down the wolves," he added
Yes because they were so good at getting them before this....so c'mon, out of the several thousand banking Trojans that have been created, the 10's of thousands of victims,and the millions of pounds been stolen, how many have you crim's have you caught and prosecuted BEFORE Snowden?
Wonder if Connie is still about.....
....and if you don't know who Connie is, ask your dad.
Re: At times because of management's bad choices, not always because of the job
I feel stressed looking at your rant...my eyes, my eyes....
"Not to sound bigoted here, but there's nothing wrong with giving someone a slap now and then if they deserve it"
To right! I personally think you are a class A prick so please send us your address so we can all give you a slap, as you clearly are asking for it.
Clearly they haven't been recommending well enough if still on XP
Re: Sorry - not where I live
I've never got the reason why buying from farm shops is dearer than the supermarket.
You've cut out the transport, the packaging, the middleman's cut and the retailers cut and a mass of other inline losses.
Re: Adverts on Gmail?
Would that be the Adblock Plus that Google doesn't allow on it's Play site? And you know what Google and commentards say about downloading from untrusted sources....
Re: Lost all faith...
"blocking websites carrying out illegal activity"
Blasphemy is a criminal offence in Pakistan, so you've fallen over there haven't you?
