The whole thing
is gloriously, wonderfully daft!
It makes life worth living!
Re: Bom bom bomb!
That only works if the probabilities are dependant in some way which they weren't.
Satellite phone with a data plan.
THat episode wasn't about the plot
But about the characters and this bit was to knock people out of their groove which it did.
Also if you watched the bit after that the important part about the veil came out. A bit metaphysical but nicely done.
If you missed it then tough.
The keyboard is mightier than the idiot
Shows them up for what they are - rabid.
Good to see satire is alive and well.
Not so much NCIS
as Abbot and Costello.
These places are nothing like they are portrayed on TV.
Comcast literally abuse their customers - and CS staff.
Now who is spending money lobbying politicians so they can do it to more people?
Not where I would expect a book review
but very enjoyable, particularly because of the the involvement by readers here.
Many thanks El Reg!
I have ordered Ancillary Justice - if you don't try you never know if you like it.
I've read books where someone keeps throwing things in to sound knowledgeable then put the book down.The Coriolis effect is always there so why would people be thinking about it like that?
I must be getting old
I can remember when football was about sport
Out of their depth
The PM demands an answer, doesn't care if it is right or what it will cost someone else.
Add people given the job who are completely out of their depth plus I have to wonder about how Irvine got that job - a good intelligence officer wouldn't spout crap like that.
OK, I'm not.
They have better sense than bother with the kind of people who think aliens would bother.
A nice piece of op ed
But frankly rubbish.
You are going on about one demographic and using that to push a point of view.
It is mostly listing equipment which is pointless.
There will always be different market segments yet you are trying to ram one down everyone's throat.
So, the Swiss police
Are at the beck and call of anyone?
The right stuff
Then and now.
What ARE you on?
This is a rant about MP3s on one hand and idiotic audiophiles on the other.
In fact you mix them up in the same sentence.
Good audio is lossless - either PCM or with lossless compression.
As for "10 per cent of a CD" do you mean 1.6 bits/sample or are you discussing frequency? Is this with dithering?
"carpenters don’t know how to do that" is just patronising. I suggest you visit Kef and find out what happens in the real world.
"Only IT will break the sound barrier"? IT look after PCs, server and networks. To lump all the specialities involved in creating sound systems under that is just plain insulting.
Err.. materials science for example?
This is why I opt out every time.
Apple a legal company?
Yes but not a moral one.
Well, it saves dealing with things like innovation.
A standard port you say...
So a standard port with a standard protocol.
I see a market for an in-line item that 'corrects' the data going to the spy box.
That can be removed if needed of course.
They are choosing a good path - build up business with a reputation for reliability.
Keep on with long term projects of course but I don't think they need to overreach.
Re: A fool and his money are easily parted.
This reminds me of a competition between myself and another engineer to find the worst spoof audiophile product.
The problem is that we found spoofs then people wanted to buy them!
"Their expertise in porcine aerodynamics is unparalleled"
I remember when I was first traumatised by directional speaker cable. Fortunately for others there wasn't a chainsaw to hand.
Rabies catches Putin.
That's the image I have Apple now.
Glad I'm on Vodafone.
One click during the system configuration procedure that will be done remotely.
I have to agree with David Austin's point about supplying to non technical users though.
Simply not found guilty.
Anyone who sticks 'crypto' at the beginning of a word sounds like a 15 year old who wants to impress a girl at school.
Of course, given the failure rate on them he won't take any responsibility for deaths or injuries amongst users. But that is the usual cowardice of these people.
No, not by Apple but from people who are wrong stopped from using items they own.
Silicon roundabout at its' err... best?
Usual entitled self indulgents think they are above the law.
Frankly if you indulge in Bitcons you deserve to get Bit.
Reaching the limit?
I don't think anyone has a realistic plan to go below 10nm for general semis in the near future.
Going to launch from
Yeah, there could be a problem
Russia's economy is collapsing, albeit slowly, because of the massive corruption.
I mean on a scale larger than the economy of many other countries.
In 10-15 years they are going to start needing economic aid.
That is Apple these days.
Petrol stations, anywhere with a gas leak

Re: If it's not unlocked, I'm not interested
The AT&T mention is about approval nothing more.
The modem is suitable for all networks.
Not a surprise
Yes, from the same civil service that brought you the NHS IT cockup (and the one before), Universal Credit which cost nearly quarter of a million per registered user and more!
Oddly enough there are consultants on all of these projects getting (if I remember correctly) £3,000 a day! The same ones again and again.
Manchester or London?
London is good to visit but to live? No way!
Plus well done for sticking with it.
Yes, I believe they could be guilty under British law. I wait with baited breath.
You know, such as military vehicles which have been using this for years.
'whole world's supply'?
it's 2014 and 4G isn't rolled out yet, nor have many of it's features like voice.
Yes, voice still has to go over 3G.
Please checked your facts
1. 'spent' not 'spendt'.
2. Freeview Connect has been in the Freeview specifications for three years that I know of and by definition is open to all manufacturers.
There are fees for access to documents and test suites from the DTG but these are reasonable.
There is no manufacturer exclusivity.
Russia doesn't need Bitcons
Want a currency that is falling, is used in large for a black economy?
The Ruble is here.
Would you trust it?
Currency that isn't backed by anything, no security standards and no comeback e.g. bitcoin traders that disappear (if they even really existed).
Oh to hack that
It won't take long, you only need to distract them for a couple of seconds.
Too much automation makes people vulnerable.
If you aren't clear about what it is to do how can you make a choice?
It seems to be about trying this or trying that.
Given wages levels in Australia I have my doubts about this in the long term.
In the short term there are grants and software is portable.
