So this magic system can tell if I'm on the motorway or the road passing over it? I'm impressed.

"They also say it will reduce road congestion."
How does it do that without tracking a vehicles movement and periodic polling?
Or I can summarize a little differently.
Power hungry wanted more power, without any form of oversight, election or mandate, on the pretext they were filling a gap in governance.
In the real world, we would call this a dictatorship.
"the Android Studio IDE, to escape from the Chocolate Factory's near-impenetrable Beta compound."
I thought Beta = public go live for Google?
it only stop being beta when it a) generate enough advertising stream to go live, or b) generates little advertising revenue and is canned.
(best to sound that you're in a foul mood). I can't help you know . I've just got the kids to sleep,and you've just woken them up, thanks. <hang up>
Seriously it works all the time, even if it's 3am and it's a top director.
...wow a ship laying phone lines almost 70 years ago, somehow is tied up with GCHQ today?
Next weeks head line.
GPO are terrorists as exchange used in 1947 handled a phone call made in 2013 to a convicted terrorist.
Shame, it could of been a interesting article without the crap.
Or by default, maybe it should be unticked? Opt in rather than opt out.
otherwise this lot would be in trouble.
"...blizzard in Reykjavik during the Winter Solstice...."
Iceland is one of the biggest users of "green" energy out there, with most of it coming from geothermal and hydro power.
So lets flip your argument, "so unless you can use hydro damns in the middle of the Sahara, then why bother."
See how much of a dick you look now?
was to post endless pictures of meals and cats. Seriously people, it's a fucking cat, the fact it's sat on a shelf / sofa, table, window ledge or anything else, does NOT make an interesting post, it's fucking boring! As for showing a plate of food, really, I don't fucking care...really and I don't give a shit you are having a meal at <insert restaurant> with someone I've never heard of!.
I've taken my girls (3 & 6) to the natural history museum twice, we haven't even seen the dinosaurs yet. They love to spend their time with the the fossils and the geology section.
Our favourite museum is still the Think Tank in Birmingham, some of the exhibits are a bit battered now, but most things are hands on and the outdoor science garden is fantastic. It's more geared for younger kids, but even teens seem to have fun. As for the adults, they can usually be found making the arch bridge in the garden, or looking at the pumping engines.
...Ooo I've had iPods for ages and never had an issue.
This is is going way back
"The competition case is examining whether Apple tried to lock down its iPod and iTunes market in 2007-09."
"Perhaps Unk did it while he waited for his elder sister...."
Is that the brother and sister who were taught by their mum? A renowned landscape artist who specialised photo-realistic landscape watercolours on large sheets of bleached paper, which were burned after a week in homage to the gods?.
"and tend my rapidly whitening beard."
I give it 30 minutes before the wheels are swiped.
I'm the lawyer from ICANN and my clients demand you hand back next years business plans!
Apart from the pointless bit of this....the losers get a share of the pot? Based on what?
If I'd put a bid in for the names for a quid each, would I have walked of with 4.4 million?
....this sums it up nicely.
No proff reding on the Reg these days dedlines and al thta these dayz.
It does seem somewhat bizarre that a government with a hundreds of billions of tax payers money, a well-compensated leadership, and more staff than you can shake a stick at would be having so much problem paying a few <insert local currency>.
I only tend to wear a watch when it's impracticable to have a phone with me, such as in a swimming pool. Not that swimming pools don't have clocks, just I'm so short sighted I can't read the damn things.
The other main time is when I go out, because it looks nice.
Did you actually read that article?
The laws were SPECIFICALLY drafted to stop him doing this, a bit like the ass hole ones banning protests near the UK Parliament in order to try and get rid of a single protester.
From that very article.
"But while the law itself doesn’t technically ban outdoor feedings, it raises the bar for groups such as Abbott’s in a way that makes it almost impossible to clear"
and as for
"but doesn't provide job johnnies or facilities to wash."
"..... the requirement that he get a port-a-potty should be moot since a public restroom is nearby and he says volunteers wash their hands before feedings and use gloves."
This is Australia not France, I believe they are still suing over LeApp Store
The just don't give up do they?
In 2011 to 2013 they LOST the right in the USA to block Amazon using the term app store as it was generic, yet here they are, still trying to fight for the name.
Just give it up will you!
Odd haven't RedHat been "charging" for "free" software for years?
If Linux wasn't so shitty, you wouldn't need RedHat.
See works both ways.
Well if you run nightly backups and say they stop at 6am, and your server drops dead at 3pm, you are talking almost a days worth of emails lost and because of the fact they were received, the customer would of not received any bounce backs.
So in our case your brilliant "restore from back up idea" would of meant about 150,000 emails being lost, with potentially millions of pounds worth of business.
While he works on the issue,the server would of been down so people would of got rejection noticies, so not such a big issue.
So feel free to restore you 5 emails a day from over night back ups, but it's not always the best. Often you have to run with the issue.
Of course hopefully you would have a active / active set up, but even then it's often better to fix then "restore".
I doubt anyone knows it's there!
Think you are missing the point, The point is NOT to use iTunes at all.
No, you're wrong it's better for the world!
We'll just gloss over the blasting of rock, the huge amount of fuel and energy required to transport and process the rock, the huge amounts of water used to keep the cutting blades cool and then the amount of fuel used to transport these to the shops, then the energy that would be used to chill the water is still used to chill the rocks.
No they ARE better, honest.
"Also, my Atari ST was better than your CBM Amiga.
Who am I kidding..."
it was when it came to PRO music (not shitty trackers).....
See fanbouys, we've been at it a LOT longer than thou.
....could be the Church Of England asking for funds for a new church roof from the locals whilst sitting on BILLIONS of pounds in stocks and shares.
..we apologise...waffle...inconvenience...drone...credit check...blah blah blah?
Agree, have a friend who says a bakers near where I used to live doesn't make "proper" bread, despite making it the same way for almost 200 years, but the gluten free, soy and rye seed with a dash of olive oil and ginsing is "proper" bread. I think it's because that baker has a beard, NHS style glasses and uses "products" in his hair, oh, as well as charging 10x the price.
Cadbury introduced the "new look" bar just after they paid a shit load of cash for the Olympic rights, and coincidently dropped several grammes in the process.
...had one of those boxes, the Pump Street one was divine, but some of the others tasted no better than Tesco value milk chocolate. As they are "artisan" brands, I guess I'm not supposed say that am I? Next I'll be saying people can't tell the difference between Aldi wine and Chateux overpirced or super-mega oxygen free, white gold cables and a coat hanger.
Emperors new clothes, never!
Still, jealous? Me? Never!
Oh, so that's why it won't power up.....thought it was strange to put it in the oven until golden brown.
The right to bear arms!
Still could be the UK where you get thrown in gaol for not giving out your encryption keys.
I like Proton mail's idea.
"Sorry officer I've forgot my login details, here let me reset my password...".
They you go officer, full access...ooppsie did I not mention they delete the mailbox on a password reset, ahhh shucks.
"...Hence why today's small cars are so much bigger and heavier than yesterday's."
Odd my Hyundai i10 is tiny and still got 4 out of 5, mainly being marked down on things like lane assist and "other"
Really? Do the people work for free, get beaten and are refused the possibility to go home?
So nothing to do with slavery then.
"Your are correct. I had forgotten that you Brits had given up your right to protect your home and your family decades ago. Some States have done that in the U.S.. Easy to spot as they have the highest crime rate."
Remind me again who has the highest number of firearms related deaths, the UK or USA? In fact let me help you...Deaths per 100,000
...the weather underground (no, not the 60's terrorist org). Only because it includes our village weather station that is usually pretty darn good.
"Queensland has since banned IBM from doing any work for the State government"
That's how you stop suppliers screwing you over, not just go, oh have a £100,000 fine, but don't feel to bad, here have another £5 million worth of contracts (that will actually cost £15 million).
Holy Crap, I know Google were planning this giving you answers before you type, but screw me, they managed to type a whole post before I got here!
Wow, such a compact and simple to use system. I'll let my parents know so they too can use this easy to set up and use system.
...there a hundred and one cheap no-name android boxes out there that can do this perfectly well.
PS Google. On 1st boot. how about ask for region like most other kit does. Not hard is it?
"UKIP-per William Dartmouth said that national governments should decide on what can and cannot be exported and that it should not be “farmed out” to the Commission."
Yup because the the UK has such a good record on this.
Now, where did I put that form to send some combat jets to Saudi?
or an under resourced system running at 100% cpu....
