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
See the icon
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.
It's a people problem
Arrogance and, in the end, boredom and laziness. That is what enables social engineering attacks.
People have walked into NSA buildings without having to show ID on occasions.
4k or 4k?
There is a big difference.
H.264 on a limited profile or H.265 to UHD standards?
There is a lot more to it than pixels.
Good time to buy
Since ARM based servers will make a big dent in that market.
Don't buy Intel.
There goes on-line dating of any kind.
So all this anti-gay stuff
And they have shared toilets?
Private companies are involved
And the data includes health details, POST CODE and NHS numbers.
I handed in an opt-out form and my GP wasn't surprised (was seeing him about something else).
Does me plus a 1-2 week battery life.
How to hack a police car
Yep, hackers have the best tools and criminals have the money to pay them.
Click, try to stop in a high speed pursuit and CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let's give some credit
for a positive step.
We give them Hell for negative ones after all.
And this is the reason
I avoid HP.
My Epson R300 still works, it caps the cartridges correctly so I can come back after six months and use it.
Much longer and I may have to replace a cartridge at the exorbitant price of less that £2.50.
Oh what brave new world
Aldus Huxley saw this coming.
