Re: Before the knee-jerk "PC gone mad" comments start in earnest...
Odd I'm sat directly one of those strange women in IT things your talking about (way more of a techie than me) two desks in front are 2 more women, to my left another, and across the room, 4 more. We have about a 70/30 in this office.
Now go to your local hospital, tell me the female to male nurse ratio, or how about social work, or primary school teachers, or carers, or even till operators at Tesco's.
We can try to battle "stereotypes" all you want, but a lot of it is simply the fact men and women just simply want to do different jobs, so lets live with it.
I for example class myself has a bit of a problem solver, which makes me a shit therapist. I do this job, to fix problems and puzzles, not to give people hugs and make them feel better about themselves.
The sooner people realise genders DO actually want to do different roles, the better we'll all get on.
Yes there is an issue with sexism and were it exists, but trust me, spend some time with a bunch of nurses when they've had a few vino's and you'll understand it works both ways, way more derogatory than this.
Oh and by the way, there IS a boyfriend version of this...
but to keep the balance:

Re: solving the wrong problem
Excellent idea, that'll mean Google, Yahoo, facebook, Twiiter and MS will go bankrupt within a week.
Well trolled Luke....
Clearly everyone fails to look up your name and see you are a ranty, shouty little child.
Re: Just nuke it from orbit
This can help....
SATA’s fastest speed is 12Gbit/s currently. PCIe v4.0 provides 1,969 MB/sec per lane. Gen 3 provided 985 MB/sec per lane.
One unit of measurement PLEASE!
Re: Why Taiwan?
you just want someone that thinks differently.
In Asia for example, dual SIM mobiles are the norm, in Europe, they are not. In the UK top loading Machines are rare, yet in Asia very common and so on and so on.

Some obscure look and feel patent will no doubt rear it's ugly head.

That's £50 more than some people on here.

Outlook is free.
Re: This is why I like my old BMW.
Yup, that's why YOU are the easiest way of gaining access. Lot harder to disable an immobiliser than the owner.
It's "bimmer" for a BMW car. A beamer or beemer is a BMW motorcycle.
Never, ever heard of bimmer. Most be a local thing for local people.
Re: Need they an app to stop wheels exploding
Your fault, your driving in the UK. BMW wheels and pot holes don't mix.
No idea why you got a down vote, either the Joke icon wasn't obvious enough, the joke was so bad it deserved one, or proving the point, geeks have absolutely no sense of humour..

Would that be the European union that so many in the UK don't want to belong to?
Still we can always leave and sit on the sidelines singing Land Of Hope and Glory, pretending we still have some influence in the world.
Simple Answers are always the correct ones.
GCHQ isn't WEEE compliant and doesn't have a permit for the local council tip. So they live it to the guilty* party to dispose of.
*Guilty until they decide to you are innocent.
Ah the Utopia vision
"This could include anything from intelligent monitoring of parking spaces in the city to networked bins which signal when they need collecting,"
And now back to reality
"This could include anything from intelligent monitoring of parking violations in the city to networked bins which signal when they have the wrong items in, or exceed the households weekly allowance allowing an automated fine to be sent"
Can't belive i'm this late to the comments and no XKCD
This is nothing new, well except the location
Lettuce (and many other veg) is often grown in huge production lines, that slowly shift along to be harvested, or under "perfect conditions" that's why modern fruit and veg is so bland.
Grow your own carrots (can be done easily in a pot) and compare
Want proof of mass production?
...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.

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

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.
