Is Bosch a charity-charity or an IKEA-charity ?
>How is hmrc going to enforce its demands in China?
Are we still allowed to send a gunboat ?

The raspberryPi was aimed at schools.
It was aimed at fixing the problem that CS in schools is now click on icon in Word to bold a word.
It was aimed at the; it is a offense to touch the school PCs without explicit permission, it is a violation of the schools service contract to do anything on the PCs not aligned with keystage 2 subsection 3 para 4 of the people's central curriculum.
So Microsoft make a few phone calls to their friends in government to "develop enhanced curriculum support" - and all those Pi in schools are suddenly limited to running Internet Explorer to access Office365 to click on an icon in Word ....
Office and Server - same place they always got money.
The only thing that has changed is that somebody has realised that if everyone starts running this cloudy free stuff then sales of Office and Server sales might be hit so we have to do something to compete / dump freebies to protect our monopoly on the desktop.

Santa uses XP ?
> Few charities have an overhead anywhere near as low.
Few charities have armed forces they can send after people who don't "contribute"
If the strong EMH were true there would be no need for insider trading laws or quite periods or restrictions on spying on competitors - since it would all be in the price.
Not wanting to go all Delia but - Olive oil in curry ?
>why httpS for recipies?
Or North Korean hackers. Suppose N K discovered food......
We are fortunate in Canada to be limited to two monopoly providers with the government careful to keep out competition.
This is necessary to protect and promote Canadian culture.
With all these choices of good quality low cost services isn't British culture doomed?
The fip side of no-byod is that if you want me to receive company email or phone calls when I'm not in the office then you issue me with a company device.
If you expect me to carry a company device then I am on-call, and I am getting paid for on-call time or I'm getting time off in lieu
The rule won't apply to the bosses shiny malware infested personal laptop - because to claim back the VAT it was officially company property (like his car and children).
Sorry - I'm an optics engineer. Printing a pattern with details 1/40 the wavelength of visible and repeating the pattern accurately over an 18" wafer for 100 layers is definitely on the tricky side.
14nm is around 75 Silicon atoms across.
We can build machines in massive quantities for a few $ each that have parts small enough that we need to worry about how many atoms.
We did this about half a century after inventing the field of semiconductors.
Isn't that just fscking amazing ?
and we use it to watch cat videos .....
So this replaces "fluoridation of water is a commie plot" with "net neutrality is a united nations plot" ?
I just upgraded to a Moto G - I thought it was a flagship !

No need, they will be shared with various commercial partners in lots of countries with no data protection laws - so no need to lose copies at all.
I think they did aswell.
But it does represent an extension of the FCC's scope. If they don't simply regulate the spectrum but also the data and the business model do they get to decide matters of traffic shaping, DNS redirects, VPN blocking and which content is delivered?
That was their defense - they didn't do anything "RF naughty" they sent perfectly legal packets to everyone's phone.
That's easy, the tricky bit is if you want to sell in China or the USA.
So which is safer, a single common backdoor that you give the key to dozens of different agencies in a hundred different countries - or a 1000 separate backdoors each allegedly known only to that agency.
Oh come on it's IBM - they would never had any profitable relations with slightly shady governments.

You have been selected to get a Windows CE phone instead of an iPhone because we need all phones to be equal.
>So, we all do half a job, or a quarter of a job and still have a high standard of living but (hopefully) a higher quality of life
Yes, that's why programmers today don't work that awful 9-5 lifestyle of our parent's and grandparent's generation.
That Linus is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. ... And it absolutely will not stop, ever - and when it reaches you it will stuck a finger up and insult you ..

Zero users - the ultimate security feature.
I find 'geometry' very offensive
A domain investor has more expensive lawyers than the people who want the domain.
A cybersquatter has less (and fewer) expensive lawyers than the people who want the domain.
Or inventing a 2week "grace period" where you can register a domain name but not pay anything.
Which allows network of pairs of squatter companies to shuffle registrations for millions of domains between themselves without every having to "invest" a cent.
The world probably relies more on standard metre, kilogram and ampere than on ICANN but I don't think a team from NIST or the NPL are flitting between plutocrat love-ins on $1m salaries
They did. Unfortunately BBC rules call for any character in a period drama to be played by an actor of appropriate superiority.
Since the 25 year old Turing is an important character he is played by Derek Jacobi who looks 60 (and apparently has done since birth). A pivotal scene has the aging colonel explaining to the young wippersnapper that he should forgot all this youthful sex business and get down to some serious maths. Unfortunately the aging colonel isn't an important character and so is played by a very junior actor who appears about 1/2 the age of Jacobi.
That might be how the Germans pronounce it - but there was a war on you know !
>The figure is over £350 per taxpayer.
That's not bad - I would have expected the government to pay more than that for a PC - I expect thy got a good deal at Tesco.

The British empire was mostly a search for nicer weather and better food.
That's why we gave America back.
How we ended up with Canada is anyone's guess
Surely tracking police 24/7 is the only way to keep them safe from terrorists?
Whereas in the British Army they become an officer the moment they are put down for the correct public school?
I think the point is that in Silicon Valley everyone joins a startup because it guarantees you will be a millionaire by 25 ;-) In the UK, or US east-coast there will be a queue of big corporations offering you a technical job, and a bunch of banks offering you a loads-a-money job. In France you will be given a government job for life.
In Israel I think the choice is much more limited to army, start your own company, leave.
It works both ways. Back in the 90s I was trying to hire super-computer modelling experts on fixed civil service pay scales, so every new graduate got hired as a senior scientific officer. Then to pay them more we had to up their grade even further. It meant that high level meetings were a bit bizarre - because meeting attendance was by rank there would be a single 50/60 year old veteran from each other division and 20x 25year olds in T-shirts from computer modeling.
A friend in the army made Lt Colonel very quickly for the same reason, he was a communications expert and everytime he got a job offer from industry they would promote him to up his pay.
I assumed the caller meant that Cameron was ...
>It is supposed to be standards compliant and should therefore not need any hacking to get it to render correctly
So it won't work with office365 then?
So now I have chrome for web browsing.
New IE for office365 and sharepoint
Old IE for all the legacy stuff form when IE integration was the once and future way.

Do giant space rocks cause cancer or cure it ?
Will a trillion ton asteroid impact affect house prices?
Was Diana hit by an asteroid?
Are giant asteroids caused by climate change?
Instability on metals markets as trillion tons of iron-nickel delivered early.
> a pair of Crutches despite the use having a huge plaster cast on one leg.
I assume anyone with a crutch would be immediately targeted by an airstrike - haven't you seen "Day of the Jackal"?
Forgive my ignorance (I always rely on the paparazzi to take my photograph) but wouldn't the point of a selfie in such circumstances be to project your own head out into the path of high speed cyclists and have the stick pointing back toward the crowd ?
In which case the resulting decapitation would seem to be an automatic self solving problem .
>An AI will not have much in common with a young lady's behavorial logic.
Obviously, one is a sometimes quasi-human being with occasional flashes of rationality which most scientists and mathematicians will never understand.
.....and the other is one of their valued colleagues
Uber creates value if there are people who want to pay for a ride but can't find a cab and with Uber they can and do. In the same way that deregulating telecoms allowed people who wanted to pay for a phone to do so without waiting 3months for the GPO.
If all it does is create an arbitrage market for 100s of resellers undercutting each other to offer a specific ride then it might be good for some users but it's not clear how much value that creates in the economy.
> having both a line and a telephone outlet box on the wall marked "BT".
Offer to connect a mains cable upto it and ask them if they can see it at their end.
That's what I suggested to NTL when they claimed they didn't serve my postcode - in spite of an NTL box on the wall with a bit of coax sticking out
