>Re: Ad-BLOCKERS are a protection racket??
As he explains in the statement rather than the link bait headline.
Ad-blockers which charge companies to be on the white list are a potential abuse.
Imagine if BT installed a network wide system that replaced the ads that were paying for the sites with their own ads - there would be much grumbling on el'reg
Netflix is worth $40Bn. Isn't the BBC content better than Netflix? What if they were global ?
The research will also be available to any civilian makers of supersonic cruise missiles
The major limitation of the seaplanes here is that they can only land in daylight.
Jolly difficult to make landing lights on the water
So an airport that can only operate form 8:00 to 3:00 in winter is a challenge
That's exactly the point = here teacher have this computer.
You can either use the Linux install that you don't understand but is something complicated to do with hackers, or you can use Windows(TM) along with all this educational support material produced by Microsoft(TM) and their Official Educational Support Unit (TM) in accordance with national curriculum standards.
Is the teacher who falls for this going to go - aha but windows10 IoT preview isn't really the same core API as windows on the desktop, I am being fooled by the Microsoft name linked to a bunch of fake educational material. Or do I just click on the use windows box and get the same IE Window that is shown in the teachers manual.
Repeat for school managers, PTAs, boards of governors, local authorities, dept of education and all the other idiots involved in schools
Because the RPi is aimed at schools. Schools, non-computer teachers and support providers "know" windows.
So instead of having this new scary Linux thing just install W10, use IE to connect to a website showing you a picture of what a science experiment would look like if you ever did one and WOW - you have increased the number of computers in school, taught everyone computer science and are now teaching them chemistry at the same time.
About 30% of the people I work with are aspie/ADHD/etc. These are the ones designing surgical robots.
The others are mentally handicapped, but in these enlightened times we can't cal them morons or idiots - so we refer to them as management/HR/marketing.
So they use more energy, so they aren't lard-arses, and that energy comes from food made from sunlight and CO2. So it's free energy with a health benefit that reduces global warming !

There is a big jump in the number of women in those fields in Norway.
But it has had a bit of a backlash - the news is full of groups of photogenically news friendly 21 year olds who just graduated with degrees in oilfield geology/offshore engineering/etc and none of the class received any job offers.
Here in Canada they are being laid off as mining/oil projects are mothballed. The normal last-in first out means that most of the people kicked out are recent/new grads, which means more women, so the news is full of how women in STEM are the most likely to be dumped.
I live in the PNW the American beer here is now very good - assuming you buy beer and not fizzy gnat's piss. They do seem to think IPA is the only craft beer, and it's a lot more flavoured than an IPA back home but very nice.
Or more cynically./ They are better than BudMillerBerg - but are they really so much better than Black Sheep or Theakstones, or are they just more media-savy than a bunch of Yorkshiremen
What he did would be a crime if anyone else did it and would be terrorism if a less-than-totally-white teenager did it.
And he deserves the same sentence from the court that I would get if I hacked the police computer to do the same.
Way back in the early days of all this data protection act a senior plod used the PNC for the same thing.
And he beat the other guy up. And he got off.
On the brilliant interpretation that he hadn't used the computer, because he didn't know how, he got his secretary to look up the details.
Doesn't matter. If a hobby site with no income has to suddenly find a couple of grand to get a lawyer to respond - then they are out of business.
See we don't need none of them foreign criminals coming over here when we can have proper British criminals from Spain.
And as the recent Hatton Garden robbery showed - our criminal pensioners are prepared to work for a living rather than demanding hand outs.
The commonwealth song contest ?
Israel and Turkey still have to suffer it - so probably not
>Just as long as the figurehead isn't Mel Gibson. Maybe Jeff Goldblum?
Benedict Cumberbatch surely ?
Visa waiver is for business or tourism, if you are form a visa waiver country (eg UK) it is quite hard to get a business visa - which means that any visit to a customer is always a crap shoot if they will let you in.
If it does apply then a bunch of people in the security/oil/engineering businesses that have been to Iraq would be banned, along with a lot of journalists and news crews. On the plus side, presumably Bush/Cheney/Blair will also be banned.
>what is preventing the FBI from rolling their own iOS update
That it would be outsourced to CapGemini,be delivered 10years late and $10bn over budget and not work ?
Somebody already did that.
US TV broadcasts a live subtitle data stream for the deaf. Somebody rigged up an arduino to decode the stream, look for the text "kardasian" and mute the sound for a second.
The study conclusively proves anti-alphabetism where people with names at the beginning of the alphabet get lower bids than those later
Except we already have ways of getting to orbit which this can't.
It's like promoting a step ladder as an aircraft - because it allows you to leave the ground.
It is worrying and it is fixed in the new iPhone.
That is the real concern about this case - it sets a precedent for banning the fix.
It would make it illegal to make HW that didn't have holes
1, The trick is already plugged in the iPhone hardware crypto unit
The data on this phone can be extracted by normal chip reverse engineering HW
2, Not just that. If Apple are required by the US to break the crypto HW in the new iPhone then they will be required to hand over the crack to every other government if they want to sell there.
So to the complexity and obfuscation of the legal profession we are going to add the simplicity and clarity of government electronic data transfer standards and have it all documented by offshore contractors.
Been tried and studied and the machine built.
For minor operations it helps because it does less collateral damage, less blood loss, so out of hospital quicker. For major operations it all depends on the ICU/nursing care afterwards. If you come off the table alive - your recovery depends on how you are looked after, not the number of decimal places in the surgical precision
>A rising tide does not, in this case, lift all ships...
No - but your life expectancy, standard of living, access to education, healthcare, diet etc unemployed and living on benefits in the UK now is higher than almost all workers 100 years ago.
> Honestly what have they to gain by weighing in at all either way?
If they don't support Apple they tell a billion potential customers that an Android phone will hand over your data to the cops but an Apple one won't.
Especially interesting if you are a phone customer in China, Russia, Iran, most of Africa etc
Only its overseas sales - suppose all its sales were overseas ?
The ultimate sacrifice would be to move Apple HQ to Switzerland and take $gazillion out of the US economy. Then have Microsoft, Google, Facebook etc follow suit when they are ordered to do the same thing.
Amazing how compliant the US government can be when you mention the recession word
He has a large number of troops, almost unlimited supplies of electricity and the authority to ex-judicially execute US citizens anywhere in the world by drone strike
This order is effectively telling them to make a patch to add a vulnerability.
The concern is that they can then be ordered, perhaps with a secret gagging order, to roll that patch out to every phone
And a few hundred million new cars that are going to have fancy graphics, and millions of smart TVs and billions of IoT devices that will want pretty UIs without running Windows10.
The market for this is anything that currently has an LCD display.
Unless you are on one of those non-microsoft platforms.
I hear they have computers in pockets these days
> And let's say it: Fortran is totally obsolete as a language and no computer scientist uses it.
That's because computer "scientists" don't need to solve real problems.
LISP is very clever, but try modeling a thermonuclear explosion with it.
"computer science - solving yesterday's problems on tomorrow's hardware"
>I wonder if part of the reason Apple is taking a hard line is because Cook is gay.
I think there is less of a knee jerk reaction to always support the government among the average Apple/Google employee today than there might have been at IBM 20 year ago
It's a company beholden to national regulators and is now going to have a hard time saying that it can't block hate speech / dodgy pharmaceuticals / piracy / etc
>seeing some of the websites that radicalise people
For me it's any time I need to deal with a bank and have to do all that prove-your-identity / know-your-customer crap to prove that you aren't a terrorist
Laboratory experiments also have problems holding a couple of kg of hydrogen together long enough for it to fuse - so the idea that the sun exists is laughable
But it's much more important for 50% of the population to go to university to do media studies and everyone pay fees rather than a small minority do science for free
"blows open astronomy".
It confirms something that have been predicted for 100years and believed by most astronomers for ages.
Nice bit of engineering though
Wasn't blaming the HSE, I worked in mining here in Canada and the safety regs are very strict (much more so than the USA)
But claiming that the accident rate drop is due to them is like me claiming that the rate of deaths due to Viking attacks is down to the local council's new CCTV system. 1st millennium, no CCTV - lots of raids. 2nd millennium, CCTV introduced - fewer raids, 3rd massive surveillance - no vikings.
Is that due to HSE or to the loss of the mining, fishing, quarrying, steel and other dangerous industries?
The HSE has done a lot to make dangerous jobs less dangerous - but there are a lot fewer of those jobs
I think the Wookie was only hired as a polically correct requirement to have a minimum number of visible minorities as spacecraft crew
Only the US: So just the NSA, CIA, FBI, Secret Service, TSA, DHS, INS, DEA, IRS,FCC, 12,000 local police depts, Army, Navy, Airforce, Coastguard,
Assuming nobody leaks any information to any unauthorized 3rd parties.
