To spend 10½ hours a day picking items off the shelves...
So the journo is happy at the 12 hours a security guard does keeping his office safe?
Or how about the person packing the same item into a box, day after day?
or they postman that delivers the same little packages, often in lousy conditions, day in day out?
The person that put the manual in the glovebox of a new car, day in, day out?
Some jobs are shit, but they do have a choice, they can leave and do some other shitty (and often much worse jobs), or have no money. Or they can go to night school, learn a trade and move up the world in the job stakes. Plenty of choices, some shit, some good, but just because some writer thinks anything more demanding than lifting a latte in Starbucks is to demanding (another shitty job), maybe they should the real world.
BTW speaking from experience, I used to do 12 hours in a label making plant, often getting covered head to toe in glue and paper. But I retrained in my own time, worked hard and got the fuck out of there, incidentally for a lower paid job, but which I knew had better prospects.
...just rename your SAN(s) to "Private Cloud" and the bean counters and CIO's are happy again.
Re: US state department funding?
Err and you think this is not being used as a means to spy on them by the US?
That is about a naive as thinking a huge amount of proxies are not run by government agencies.
Ooo I need to patent something....
A device that when told to do something, or decides to do something itself, on a scheduled or non-scheduled basis, makes another component or components, which may or may not be separate or may or may not be integrated within device or another component of the system. It may or may not need electricity or mechanical input to function, but may or may not also be powered by an unspecified action.
There that should do the trick.
Of course they haven't hit back....
...they are calibrating their defence shields; every strike allows them increase it's effectiveness.
Re: Why is this even news?
To get the Linux trolls biting.
Re: Unusual Case.
But remember this has been proven of Linux as well, with 10 year old plus bugs popping up....
Re: Take it out and shoot it
"doesn't have any AV, doesn't have any virii or malware either"
How do you know it doesn't have malware if you have no A/V?
Re: If it's such an offence. Then why hasn't Peaches Geldof been arrested?
Because it's with the CPS and they will then decide. If there is no risk to the public, you don't have to race round and go kicking in doors.
Re: All tech specs and religious tendencies aside...
"The first gen device was the Atari 2600"
Actually that was classed as 2nd gen....most [people state the Magnavox Odyssey a few years before was 1st gen home console.
Re: All tech specs and religious tendencies aside...
If you think that, then you are more gullible than most.
Re: so everyone will get to pay then
" if someone loses their phone there will not be much incentive to call in to report it stolen,"
Customer: Hello, I'm not paying the bill, my phone stolen!
Operator; Can I have the crime reference number?
Customer; Oh shit. Err no honest it was.
Carrier. Oh we believe and so we are disabling your SIM and bricking your phone. Enjoy.
Customer: Huh, my phones just gone dead?
What a stupid statement
Re: What could go wrong
You need an least a capital in there, so I think you'll find it's Password123 and maybe if it's really "complex".
Dear Google Search Engine.....
can you tell me about Margaret Hodge's tax avoidance and expenses scandals please?
What's that, suggestion? Do I mean "Hypocrisy"?
Would that be the one that spams you with featured ad's instead of a 404 for mistyped URL's?
The one when I was checking a content filter I proved utterly useless after 30 seconds (image searches resulted in about a 75% "success" rate)
Re: Excellent Article
Why just Apple, as pointed out, works on Andriod just as well...
Re: $299 vs £350
With a bit of jiggery pokery, I work that out about 459 US Dollars without VAT.
Re: Even the dumbest porn-addicted teen...
If it's going to be DNS based, you don't even need that.
Re: Google Analytics / Google Ads
Well, done, you just proven that you are out of touch with the rest of the real world.
Feel free to keep hiding in the broom cupboard.
Re: Cheaper Insurance too
They tend not to insure as it like a 17 year old driving a Porsche.
Value of car £40,000, insurance £60,000.
Gah! It's turning into the bloody Daily Mail here.
Now what is this twearking that this Miley Cirus is doing?
"who obviously doesn't feel that suing the military will make it harder to sell to other defence forces."
Well given the choice between giving it away for free and probably going bust or suing them, it was a bit of a no brainier.
Re: Wait, Koh again?
No she did work for Apple! They read it on a forum, or a blog, maybe it was in a newspaper, or was it that bloke in the pub/
AC, I'm a Windows user, but you really are a complete prick (yes we all know you are the same AC time and time again).
Can't see Server 2012 running a set top box, can you?
"We know the spam issues made it hard to use the new system at first, and we’re excited to see more of you getting involved as we’ve fixed issues. New features like threaded conversations and formatted comments are coming to life, thanks to you and your fans."
See, that is an example of utter bullshit right there; spam if I ever read it. Next he'll be selling me investments in a Nigerian king's shoe empire.
Re: It's all about the money
No this may come a HUGE surprise to many out there banging on about CE marks, but wait for it........
China is not in the EEC (not EU, different things)! I know craaaazzeeeeee. So local products, even decent ones, may not actually carry it.
Still at least they can rely on a the Kite mark eh?
Freecycle people don't get 200k of government (read our) cash thrown at them....
Not the only ones....
No Darwinism is where you kill yourself, not where you wipe out a couple of other families in the process.
"Those who have seen it could not make a copy, or take a copy away with them. "
Take a photo, bang it on the internet, move it around a few times and hey presto, instant orphan work, for all to republish.
Re: They said it; it must be true
Well maybe you should actually read it. It seemed a reasonable assessment and pretty balanced.
But then there is a BIG problem with the open source community, it's this elephant in the room. What! Someone DARES criticise us? LA LA LA I'm not listening.
Saudi driving test.
My cousin passed his about 5 years ago, sounds about the same, think he may of had to turn the car as well, but that was pretty much it.
Re: What about "phone only" extension wiring?
You'll need an ATA for those.
from cheapass Grandstreams to rock solid Pattons / Audiocodes.
Pay your money and take you choice.
Not investing in MS
Is that because he fucked up with Yahoo and got in a strop when MS didn't buy them out as he had planned for?
Here is what I would do.
Check external cable.
Send back if not resolved at your expense
It's not my job to fix your dodgy work.
Re: The reasons the team quit
Maybe they should move away from open source and get some MS products in, such as Word. They seem to have a better spell-checking solution than whatever they are currently using.
Re: The cloud is only vaporware and it never will get any better....
Hell I've been there, hit a typo, took out a phone system for 4 hours on Christmas Eve, just me and a security guard left on site...
Back Up? This was the NT4 days.....the 4 hours to manually rebuild would be far less painful than uses a backup in those days.
My ZX Spectrum is so cool and far more compact than your crappy C64...
Sorry reading these comments I was transported back, but then it was in the playground, not the playground that is now the comments section of any internet article.
"But the study also has implications for education policy here in the West. Why educate people in science and technology if other countries are going to reap the reward?"
Take look at who are taking those courses at some of the biggest Uni's and you'll find the vast majority are not of British origin.
Re: The ultimate recliner
A heater, you wuss! Fingerless gloves and a flask of tea is you're only warmth...
Ahhh is that the one were you buy the kit and if you don't cough up a usage fee that cost pretty much the same price as the kit, year on year, your network shuts down?
Re: EZ Tag!
So how does it detect those that haven't paid?
Re: Interesting thought...
it's a bit like the 5% of the population have X disease, 13%, have Y disease, A number have been a victim of <insert> abuse, B number will be traumatised by something they read online and C will be bullied at work or home.
You add them all up and the UK has a population of 6 trillion, most of whom have at least 23 illness at any given time
I estimated that based on a survey of 2 people.
Re: It takes ages for the operators to put out an OTA update...
"If so then the problem of operators not updating surely only effects the Android phone in the report."
You clearly have no history of Apple patches then have you.
Search for "Apple finally patches" and see what you get
Re: Home Users
If you want to have a solid cheap home version, just get a normal desktop and bang Drive Vaccine* on it, with a unprotected space for documents etc.
Pretty much bomb proof desktop.
*Others are available. In the old days, you just used Microsoft's Steady State, which is not available for 7 / Vista / 8
Re: VDI sucks at the best if times
What do you think a VDI is if it not "server based"?
Re: That's some battery
Devil in the detail.....
Will they swap out when you only get 90% of the original mileage on a charge? 75%? 50%? Or does it have to be completely dead.
Hot on the heels of this one...
Odd how he never reported it....
How naive are you in the world politics? Let me enlighten you.
"Should the UK (and others) be giving £100 millions in aid..."
I'll rephrase that so you understand the bigger picture
"Should the UK (and others) be giving £100 millions in bribes, to allow them to fly military missions over it's airspace, attack residents in it's borders and allow large western business operate with impunity whilst treating the country like a dumping ground"
Now hope that helps clear it up a little.
Re: The problem with BT's attempts to buff up their brand...
BT were one of the first of the biggies to rebrand, formally being British Telecom, yes I know, not very imaginative.
Still they could pretend that they are owned by a lovable beardy bloke, even keeping his brand name.
