...fascist little country
Would have been a hell of a lot more interesting if...
ZOD had stood for Zone of death.
Err...not sure 'the planet' is at risk...
...more like the infestation crawling all over it!
Re: Red herring design
Yeah, let's just stop thinking of ideas and get back in our caves.
Re: sad really
What would you do if you were sat in the sun, drinkung a bud, with lots of balloons and helium close to hand?
...very aerodynamic to me! look at the shape of those spoilers!
Stand back everybody
Why exactly is this such a bad thing? If you're getting something for free you have to pay for it somehow right? There's no data that's likely to be on my phone that i consider private enough such that it's a disaster or an outrage if anybody looks at it.
Just throwin this out there...
The message was spotted during an unrelated search....
Agree with all the 'stupid' comments. Only a dick would dick around with security these days.
What on earth was the search (The message was spotted during an unrelated search...) where this tweet was spotted? Was someone actually going through his twitter timeline??
High enrgy atmospheric particle...?
What happens when one of those hits me then???
For a country as bureaucratic as the US of A...
...it seems entirely appropriate to create a law for this!
Only one mention of the effects of the storm....
Can't believe no one's taking the effects of a big violent storm into account. You're all talking as if the plane was in the dark or in cloud but basically flying smoothly (in whatever direction!). A big t-storm would be throwing the biggest of jets around like a paper plane.
If you thnk that you've just been thrown to the left when you've actually just been thrown to the right you're going to have a very hard time believing any instrumentation telling you otherwise. Also, if you know you have some systems/instrumentation failure how do you know that anything any instrument says is true?
And that's all without the psychological effects of increasing stress.
I think the consensus has come round from blaming the pilots to realising how goddam awful some of the design was. The pilots biggest error was not seeing a potential danger and just avoiding it. Once they became embroiled in it, it was only ever going to be a bad day in the office.
Is this the beginings of a digital thumbprint type system...?
....someone's already got the movie script writer involved in describing the moment...
Completely sh*te story though.
I only read this because...
....you said it would be the shortest review ever!
Call me cynical...
...but my 8Mbps service, which I've had for years, now only delivers @ 3.5 on a very good day. It's got noticably slower of late. Oh, and I've also been bombarded by mail from BT trying to flog their new Infinity broadband.
They wouldn't, would they...?
When I was a lad...
....one place I would have loved to have gone to was the R and D labs at Sony.
Now, Sony is becoming a by-word for a big company that's completely f***ed up. Sad, when you know how they started, and what their ambitions were.
don't think the feds are saying they can't speak freely are they? And surely, free speech comes hand in hand with free reading what people have said..?
A sensible article, sensibly reported by El Reg, with sensible comments to follow.
I like it!
Employer monitoring emails
So... should I send a card to my employer, who routinely monitors and reads emails, whether business or personal? They see it as a source of information about employees.
Or should i just get an iphone and email through that?
Are there any official figures to say how 'productive' airport security has been? How many people have been caught trying to tak bad things on to planes?
