Re: The Cause Of His Symptoms
what if his neighbour hadn't been able to afford a lawyer, or hadn't looked sympathetic in court, or was a gender/skin colour/race that the jury didn't like - then he would have won and the laws of physics would have been determined by the precedence of a case in some backward US state.
Re: The point is..........what?
> how is WinRT more secure than iOS
By limiting connectivity to VMSNET running over Token ring the potential for virus infection has been greatly reduced.
In addition, binaries will not only have to be signed but they can only be installed by typing them in from listings printed in the back of magazines.
The use of weak passwords have been prevented by the removal of 'p' 'a' 's' 'w' 'o' 'r' and 'd' keys from the keyboard
Re: All that's missing
I propose a new reg unit of redundancy speed to replace the venerable "Osbourne"
I was going to suggest the "WebOS" but I think Win8 (also known as WinCE-ME) might beat HP's best efforts
Re: "A[sic] unencrypted stick amnesty by the force's data controller.."
It does become a bit of a scape-goat job though.
It's like the Met's race relations office.
1, Some copper beat up a black guy it's on the news.
2 Ok, fire the race relations officer
3, Whose next on the list to be race relations officer ?
Re: They have "Greater Manchester Police branded memory stick"s?
>Do you also advocate criminal charges against anyone who loses a company USB stick, or just those who work in the public sector?
If it harms people - ye. If I take home a list of people's credit card numbers and pins and lose it then I should get the same jail time as if i had gone round and robbed them.
Get drunk and smash a window at work = arrested.
Get drunk and leave a list of all the undercover MI5 agents in a strip-club = laughed off.
Truecrypt = more than one syllable, that mean they would need a fast-track graduate intake
Finding one of those who didn't do media studies is tricky

>He should even apply to win a million dollars from James Randi for his talent.
Everybody who can do this is presumably already working for the NSA
If you can detect a wifi being on in another house you should be able to detect a Russian nuke sub
Re: Inquiring minds...
>There have been enough cases where complaints were made about new mobile masts...
>Only to then discover that they hadn't been powered up yet.
So that's premature hyper-sensitivity disorder ?
Re: Wish they
You should see Volvo's spaceprobes
Greater Manchester Police Force have paid a £120,000 fine
Greater Manchester Council Tax payers have paid a £120,000 fine - basically the people whose details were leaked have paid for it.
The capsule apparently has it's own supply at 8psi as you said and is replenished with LNO2 tanks.
8psi of 100% O2 is ok for a 3.5 hour trip.
My guess is that capsule would start off with air and then vent as it rose until it reached 8psi then continually flow O2 and vent to keep it at 8psi - that way you don't need any CO2 scrubbers and you can gradually off gas the N2 to prevent decompression sickness.
Interestingly the parachute has a way of automatically cutting off the backup - if it deployed accidentally it would slow his descent so much he would run out of suit O2 before he got low enough to breath.
Re: Lightweight Pickup?
Actually it's the total capacity of all the drinks holders filled with 80oz giant-super-slurpies
Re: Seriously though...
Or the Eu, with a central bank, central currency and an open market have made it perfectly practical for an independant NI or Scotland or Basque country.
After all the previous arguement - you have to be part of Britain or the nasty French/German/Spanish will get you didn't work out too well.
Re: A sad end
Toyota sponsor the science centre
Presumably Chevy, Dodge, Ford could also have sponsored a science museum but prefer to back monster truck rallies and NAscar rather than a bunch of poindexters who probably believe in evolution 'an all'
Suit is pressurised to 3.5psi with 100% O2. So ppO2 =0.24 atm - that's slightly higher than sea level (0.21atm)
On the otherhand this could be a good thing
If makers were forced to licence this patent in order to add DRM then
1, they are unlikely to automatically add DRM
2, it's very hard for governments to mandate or industry to lobby for DRM if they means you have to license this patent
Imagine if somebody had patented region coding on DVDs (well they did but they were part of the DVD consortium)
There is an advantage to there being a specific law
A clever lawyer can get you off.
I wasn't talking on a "cellular telephone" - I was making a VOIP call on a data network
I wasn't making a call I was recording my voice on the handset
I wasn't making a call - I was talking to a voice recognition app on the phone which was sending a text message.
For extra points match the (successful) excuse to the celebrity
Re: Don't take their phone away - take their car.
Because all the studies (including this one) show that using the bluetooth hands free is just as dangerous.
It's about as effective as saying you should impound all the cars that don't have a St Christopher hanging from the mirror - they choose to buy a £40,000 car and don't bother to invest in the protection of an omnipotent deity.
Re: Mobile phone use
And the cause of this is the texting?
If they didn't have the phone they would otherwise have been concentrating on the traffic with test-pilot like focus?
Or would they have been doing their makeup, playing with the radio, looking in the glove box for sweets, reading a magazine, chatting to a friend in the car, turning round to slap the kids
Since there isn't a specific act to ban any of those then they can't pose any sort of serious hazard to driving
If Google is found guilty over Google Maps,
It will have a quick look through all the patents it owns on buying Motorola
Find one about using radio waves to send information and have MSFT's windows8 mobile pulled from stores
Exactly how does UEFI protect me?
I buy a MB from an unknown cheapest supplier in China, they claim to have implemented UEFI and installed a genuine copy of Windows8 - and it must be genuine because otherwise UEFI wouldn't allow it.
That's like the international Association of Crack Dealers claiming that their new secure crack pipe only allows pure crack - and my local crack dealer then sells me a crack pipe and crack and it must be pure because otherwise the crack pipe wouldn't work!
Re: You know what?
It does pose a problem for GPL3 software.
If you distribute some GPL3 software - such as a bootloader - you also need to distribute the keys to require it to run. This is the circumvention measures (anti-tivo) clause. This was canonical's problem with Grub - if they used Grub they felt they would need to release their private key as part of the GPL requirements.
If I read it correctly this is a work-around where you have a lowest level bootloader that is signed ( but whose key you don't have and so can't replace ) to boot Grub or any other unsigned bootloader.
Re: @Ragarath - Small correction for you.
They allow multiple keys on Intel but not on Arm.
They feel they can get away with only allowing a single OS on a tablet/cell phone because Apple (and every other cell phone maker) already do - but if they locked all the world's PCs to be Windows only the anti-competition people would be round sharpish
Re: Yes, but was this reported by inside sources that have been reliable in the past??
It was a man that works down the chip shop.
He also swears he's Elvis
Re: Seriously though...
But it has removed the "we haven't had a war with Spain/France/Germany for 20years - it's about time we did" from the last 1000 years of history.
Although whether this is down to the Eu or Oppenheimer is a bit more debatable.
Time for a subsidy?
Since Facebook is on it's uppers and so many people rely on it as a vital part of the local community shouldn't it receive the same sort of subsidy as other local services in rural areas ?
Re: Or get the ESA to do it...
And all the commercial partner would have to do is ensure that an equal proportion of each component was built in all contributing countries and that the first crew were French.
If you think Nasa is a bureaucratic bunch of pork-barrelled politicians you haven't worked on anything with ESA
Re: So instead
Only the 100th in Canada, things move a little more slowly there
Re: EFF = Energetic Frivolous Fools
Indeed, requiring a warrant before you spy on your own citizens. Ridiculous, they'll be wanting trials before the sentence next.
The whole point of having the right to bear arms is so that the government can have the right to enter your property whenever it wants.
1G used analogue variation in power to transmit calls
2G used digital signals to transmit calls
3G used IP packets to transmit data
4G used vague handwaving to transmit marketing bullshit
5G will use nuclear physics to actually manipulate inter-atomic bonds to send data at almost the speed of light between copper atoms. Billions of these copper atoms will be contained in a new atomic metalic fibre only slightly thicker than an optical fibre and be connected directly to each handset in what the makers a re calling cord-to-handset technology.
[x] something more sinister
A secret sinister plot by the Irish intelligence agency to take over Google and !Yahoo! ?
Re: FTTH is a waste of time
Out here in the colonies, I'm 10km from the center of a city of 2M people that is allegedly the high tech hub of the country.
I pay $35 for ADSL 5Mb down / 0.5Mb Up and achieve exactly half that.
I could pay $70 for cable and get 15 Mb down / 0.5Mb up
For "cultural and security reasons" we are limited to a choice of one telco and one cable company.
So having fibre to the cabinet and then copper into your house limits you to what Gig-E?
I can see why Silicon roundabout has failed if I can't have 100Tb/s to my netbook
If only BT had delivered ATM to the house in the 90s Facebook would have been British.
But if you are an American company who only pays tax in Ireland on their earnings in the UK you can expect a bit more red-carpet treatment.
How did they know the Swedish accents were authentic?
Because they sounded like the chef in the muppets or because they sounded like the plumber in the movie they watched in the 70s?
I think the Swedish academy of science might need to look at a more secure authentication program.
Although First Direct having it's call centre in Leeds was a good test. Unless nigerian scammers have learn't t'tak proper like wot ar do sithee.
Re: Manned spaceflight
So the whole purpose of the ISS and Nasa was to provide an incentive for commercial airliens to offer free-fall fun trips?
And WWII was justified as a publicity stunt to promote Vera Lynn's latest single
Re: Racism? Really?
And yet they are happy for Canadian government emails about NAFTA negotiations to be passing through a US server
Re: Standards should be open and free.
Certainly if you submit it to a standards body.
Pretty much all the companies on the list have been guilty of promoting some format to ISO and then once it's official announcing that they own some patent on it.

What data will you collect = that's classified.

I would do this for £1.5bn - leave the cash behind the tree in the usual place and never contact me again
The systems and their software will be made in America
Remember this is the 100th anniversary of the War of 1812 when the US attempted to burn down Toronto (a laudable aim) and then got their butts whipped
>obvious we need a benchmark for Quantum Computing now.
As long as you promise not to measure it while I'm working
Re: Recently declassified?
Actually the whole of Canada is a disinformation campaign run by the NSA
A whole country like America; where everyone is thin, polite, have guns but don't kill people, grow their own drugs and have free healthcare? How can anyone possibly fall for that.
