>Since when has George Soros been associated with espionage activities?
Bill Gates is now a good guy, Maxwell is dead and nobody can take the idea of Beardie Branson as a Bond villain seriously so he's all that's left

How are we getting into space these days?
Dedicated ebook reader = cheap, charge lasts months, can read in sunlight
Phone = have one anyway, always with you, keep it charged, But small screen can't read in sunlight
Tablet = already own one or buy $50 cheap slow 7" one. But poor battery, can't read in sunlight
Dedicated ebook tablet = expensive, don't already own one, poor battery, don't always carry it, can't read in sunlight. Why am I buying this?
Careful - somebody in dear old blighty just got nicked for doing that sort of thing.
That's why lawyers would advise you to write to the owners of all websites requestign permission to access the site and read each page.
You can find the address of the company on the web site

To unbolt a stop sign I have to visit your town and be visible on the street by the stop sign with a spanner for a significant time.
To do this attack on all and any city in america I just need to be one of a billion anonymous people sitting at a computer in a country on the other side of the Pacific.
Tricky not to mess up though.
If it's exclusive and hard to get, nobody has heard of it, employers don't demand it, so nobody gets it.
If it becomes too popular, people don't respect it, so good employees don't bother doing it.
But you thought those shots of laser guided bombs hitting buildings were cool though?
Kill one person and it's disgusting evil video, carpet bomb a jungle killing 1000s and it's the background to a pop video.
Or, according to one Snowden leak, read the Linux Journal
But an allied general shooting a Vietnamese prisoner in the side of the head is an iconic moment?
Does it come down to which side is getting killed ? So Watching "Das Boot" is a war crime
I'm available, but it's going to take some photoshop work to make my "rack" look anything other than fat and hairy
And you are posting this on a social media/networking site aimed largely at old fart computer geeks ?
Remember the Steven Lawrence case, where after the police got a wrist slap they sent undercover agents to befriend the family of the victim in the hope of digging some dirt to get revenge after the enquiry?
Might have made somebody a little touchy
Given that the disciplinary punishment for shooting a suspect while in custody is generally not being allowed to choose the chocolate biscuit with you tea for a week - the dismissals are a bit of a shock
Thefts of more than x100quid get counted as major thefts in their statistics
So they halve the number of burglaries by diligent policing but a 1000 people get their iPhone nicked and the local paper runs a story about 1000% increase in major crime and the Chief Constable feels embarrassed down the lodge.
Stop people nicking phones and it doesn't matter how many burglaries there are - your stats go down.
0000? that's the sort of password an idiot would have on their luggage (or their nukes)
Serious bands with real lyrical and musical ability didn't go in for these sort of publicity stunts.
They just released an inflatable pig from a powerstation
They were doing our corporate video last week on a Canon 5D
They still shout "cut"

The issue is that you can't drop something from the ISS to earth.
The ISS is in orbit doing 7km/s 'sideways' if you drop something it is also doing 7km/s sideways.
Everything going 7km/s sideways is going to stay in the same orbit.
If you want it to go down you need to reduce its sideways-speed
You could just halt yourself and then fall gently (assuming you had a parachute) but to do this you need to get rid of the 7km/s. One way to do this is to have an engine capable of reaching 7km/s the other way. However a moments thought will realise that this is the same size as the rocket that it took to do the original 7km/s - which you would have to carry with you.
This is the reason for doing the spectacular "re-entry", it is to use the Earth's atmosphere to burn off that extra speed rather than carry the fuel and engines needed
Do they have to separate recyclables and organics into different coloured spacecraft?
They both use the same password - F***OBAMA
Would dragons be repatriated to an independent Scotland?
If it's the aircraft carriers that can't have a catapult to launch planes and can't land VTOL ones - we have all heard it.
Another clever trick is to release the FOI data to everyone - I mean you can't have too much openness and transparency can you?
This means that a real investigative journalist that spends time tracking down a story and finding out what information to request, is then scooped by red-tops running out a quick story of the scandal - before the detailed story can be written.
>Why does this need to connect with the car systems?
Tricky to show the information from the dash without asking the car for it.
>just cut out all the other crap.
Like speed, engine warning lights, fuel ?
>So how is this different from BMW incorporating a HUD i
This doesn't automatically award points for each red light you run and each Audi you overtake.
>Neither do they have the potential for a facebook app to interface with their HUDs.
Not yet, but for $WTF million each on a F35 you expect some options package
And they need to recruit a new generation of younger recruits
The obvious answer is to call in an airstrike
But if you were trying to find which of 1024 cups had chicken feed under it - then 1024 chickens are probably more effective than a single elephant

Apple paid 3Bn for an online music catalogue that had a much better deal with certain record companies than they could get. And a whole new segment of the music buying market that thought Apple was too white, middle aged and middle class
Berlin spends half its money promoting the city as the startup capital of europe.
And then warn that next year they might kick in your door if they decide that your blogging app qualifies you as a broadcaster and there is a 250K Eur fine for being an unlicensed TV network.
So you raid the US office and with a super-secret ninja court order force them to tell the other offices that everything is OK
>The service provider can't tell you that a secret warrant exists. But it can stop telling you that >everything's OK
But if a SWAT team are pointing assault rifles at your head and getting the orange jump suits ready for a long stay in gitmo - you are going to click the everything is OK button.
When I were a lad the only way you could get experience on a computer (other than a ZX81) was to go to university or get hired by someone like ICL. Now I can hire kids with experience on industrial grade OS/ database/ languages that they gained in their bedroom.
They can also prove it to me by showing actual code in the world rather than a pointless certificate from nowhere I have heard of.
That's the cynical reason behind the free online courses from MIT/Stanford/etc
Who would you hire, somebody that had contributed to a bunch of opensource projects, had some apps on the app store and completed a set of MIT/Stanford CS courses on their own - or an ICT graduate from the Noweheresville State
So why would you run up a 50K student dept going to Noweheresville State - returning IVY league to its original monopoly position.
I heard of a startup near Seattle that is selling something called a microcomputer which will be small enough that you can have an actual computer in your own office
The point of safeharbour wasn't to protect your data from the CIA/MI5/KGB it was that in the Eu your medical records can't be sold to insurance companies or tabloid newspapers. But a foreign company could claim that this was legal in Liberia or Panama or where ever it is registered and do this legally.
The safe harbour provision was to show that the US company followed the same rules as an Eu one. In the same way that we have joint agreements to allow the US to claim that a US airline is safe to land at an Eu airport and v.v.
Given the pitifully small fines for most corporate naughtiness compared to the payoff for breaking the law you could claim that any director that stayed within the law violated their duty to the shareholders and so acted illegally.
Sorry that should have been "class-action".
The "clash-action suit" was an ill fated attempt by the seminal punk band to launch their own range of fitness wear
You own $x of stock,you hope the payout to you is $x+y
The company has a lot of cash in the bank and could afford to pay off a few troublesome small shareholders to avoid a clash action suit if the big institutional investors agreed
What if you are reading a story from the 19C and need to know what a wiffleplonk is ? Removign it from the dictionary because it is no longer in everyday use rather defeats the purpose of having a book explaining words you don't use everyday.
The reason for including binge-watch is so that in 100years when we have the plot for TV series automatically downloaded into our iBrain we can understand archaic blog entries from the early C21
But if you were to load a malicious paper roll into the onboard player-piano couldn't it be compromised ?
Speaking as a topologist - a women and a donut are identical
It's called RPN because it was invented by Jan Łukasiewicz.
IVY league colleges have already been accused of having an 'asian quota' just like they had a Jewish quota in the 30s - in the name of equality.
