Can be dried and used as a fuel.
Maybe needed soon in the UK (lucky there are still peat bogs).

Re: Olé olé olé
I never saw any good justification for OLE in Powerpoint. Surely an image of the spreadsheet (maybe JPEG or PNG) would be fine. I have never seen anyone use a spreadsheet to actually calculate anything inside a powerpoint presentation.
Something like a Mul-T-Lock maybe?
You mean Carbon fibre–reinforced polymer? As in a carbonized Polyacrylonitrile in an epoxy resin?
Sounds like plastic to me.
Sadly idiots are plentiful; idiots with that sort of cash to throw around less so.
I still think it is a crap business model.
Re: eco-friendly lead-free solder, heh?
Surely it depends on which lead-free solder you use. There are many options and it is up to an engineer to pick an appropriate one and verify the process that solders components to the motherboard. Both are Apple's responsibility.
By the way - anyone know which solder they chose?

Re: Strange correlations
easy: cheese gives you nightmares - nightmares get you tangled in bedsheets!
Its easy to dream up reasons for correlations if you try hard. The trouble is that it doesn't make them correct.

You need a distributed Beowulf cluster of oldies!
Much cheaper than MET office hardware and will run on tea and biscuits.

There is no interoperable SIP, Skype is a proprietary protocol
Doesn't that date from the 90's ??

global versus local
Global is great for commodity stuff but (to get back to the bookcase example) we went to a local firm to get one made to fit in our specific house.
If local business wants to survive they will have to go for tailor-made solutions to specific needs. If not going full-on Jermyn Street at least to alterations to jeans (I can never buy ones that fit).
Re: Elephant in the room
Don't shoot an elephant with anything less than a hunting rifle. It pisses them off.

As William S Burroughs said
sometimes paranoia's having all the facts
"But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor."
So the government has an easy fix to increase happiness - make everyone poor!
... oh that explains everything
I have seen several adverts from the last 10 years where I am given no clue about what the product is.
Occasionally it is not even clear what the product name is.

Does that dog have a bazooka?
It was originally on the list of possible names
Later popularized by the Marx Brothers
Qik not on windows phones??
Do I understand this correctly: Microsoft have Qik on most other smartphones but not windows phones.
Is there some problem with developing for a windows phone?
I'm waiting for The Bongster to comment on it
Yes, the EU commissioners are just a bunch of Talking Heads

Hmm, maybe it's just me, but I am don't feel any need for an 'insane' level.
Oh wait - it's for the USA market - my bad

On a serious note: I downloaded this and was planning on trying this out until I read about this keylogger.
NO WAY am I willing to 'try out' a known keylogger.

'Real wealth' is having enough material resources to maintain health and comfort.
That can be an estate, a marketable skill or POWER TO FORCE PEOPLE TO OBEY YOUR WILL;
It isn't getting the latest 'shiny'.

Just how much better is HEVC
I wonder when a codec is 'good enough'?
Is it much more compact? Or much better dynamic range? or what?
