Just did it
Cool as Steve McQueen.
Are we safe commenting on this?
I have to agree
Characters were weak and it was fluffy in the previous series.
This time they do anything to the script to be clever with the characters.
Get back to drama.
So the resources to deal with illegal firearms will be diverted?
Which is the greater risk?
I get it
This would mean following due process instead of hacking in whenever they want without oversight.
Named after the response from customers.
MP3s? OK for some stuff but try good rock music.
Complex with wide dynamic range, guitar prices are much better from CD (or ripped from a CD).
It depends on the content
I listen to Planet Rock with a 112kp/sec MP3 feed and sometimes I will switch to a CD track to hear the detail.
For some music it may not be audible but I enjoy the complexity and dynamic range of rock.
but a lot of work to achieve it.
Remember this happened when Reagan allowed massive asset stripping and someone snapped.
Land of the free?
In the US there is a thing called 'civil forfeiture' where goods - including dwellings with contents - can be seized and sold on the basis of suspicion of crime, no proof.
Philadelphia (a city BTW) seizes about 250 houses a year, police simply turn up and force people out of their home. That's it. Then everything is sold.
Small town police size the car and contents of people travelling through and sell them.
It's usually poorer people who can't afford to fight back and the Attorney General refuses to do anything about it because it would cost the police too much money.
It doesn't take one to despise Apple's attitude.
Re: Moon is a harsh mistress
You drop rocks from orbit, the gravity well on the moon is too high.
Iron Sky II
Oh, and Palin for president.
They get my vote

Re: Nvidia and Intel
Intel was Picochip in Bath actually, acquired via Macom.
Nvidia and Intel
Both modem business units are British start-ups that were acquired.
Add ARM and others, the UK does pretty well.
Hmm... the country with one third out population but ordering three times as many F-35s (if they ever work).
The country which alcohol fuelled violence getting out of control.
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.
