I see no mention on their site of an API to allow you access the device with your own software.
This seems a shame, as there are lots of ways I can think of using this, but I would rather tailor the software to control and access the device myself.
Re: Am I reading this corectly?
Yes, just not spelling it correctly...
Never mind all the fluff and flurry about the NSA / other foreign intelligence services, Office365 has been shown to be unreliable at best, with a number of outages this year, as well as losing various client's data.
What a good idea to entrust it with government internal communications, how long before they break it?
Ah, young Master Bates, come in, come in...
Maybe they misheard his name, and think it's Bill's son...
Ernest Doku, telecoms expert at uSwitch
I just wondered, is his wife called Su?
Lets face it, there's not many websites, or news outlets, who could manage to include references to a famous thought experiment and a mangled quote from Shakespeare in a single article headline about a comet.

Anatomically incorrect, Shirley?

Maybe he and Vint Cerf should have a chat about whether privacy is a good thing...
Silly old Hector...
Gosh, that takes me back.
I had a Hector's House annual when I was little.
So, once they go public, will they have a shareholders AGM?
Interesting how the US "justice" system works....
Compare and contrast the two statements:
The US Department of Justice notes that "the charges contained in [today's] indictment are merely allegations, and the defendants, including those charged today, are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty."
"As alleged (...) these defendants were packing bags to the brim with stolen cash, destined for the cybercriminal organizers of these attacks," claimed US Attorney Loretta Lynch.
"Today, we have sent them packing once again – but this time, to jail."
Yep, nice presumption of innocence, there.
"Eddies in the space-time continuum"
Is he? How nice...
So, was preparing for this announcement what caused the outages last week?
"god of see-through toilet paper, Azal."
I could do with some toilet roll - or kitchen roll - now.
Researchers led by Olaf Thalmann of the University of Turku in Finland used prehistoric genomes
First read that as prehistoric gnomes, strange how my mind works...
Re: Cybermen = Borg
You appear to have it arse about face - the Cybermen predate the Borg by two decades at least, and in fact there is a case to be made that the creators of the Borg were influenced by Cybermen. (erm, not BY Cybermen, you understand, just by the idea)
Also surprised you didn't mention The Androids of Tara - a very recognisable remake of The Prisoner of Zenda, so recognisable, It spoilt my enjoyment of the original broadcast, to some extent.
So, he wants to take car powered by a humungous battery of cells which object violently to being short circuited, and sink it in water...
More power to his elbow, I say.
According to Boston Dynamics, Atlas is a high mobility robot designed to negotiate difficult outdoor terrain.
Ah, there's your problem, right there...
It should have been designed to negotiate tricky indoor terrain, you know like highly polished lab floors, loose rugs, spilt cups of coffee, that sot of thing.
Newsflash... Windows Home editions do not contain a Remote Desktop (Terminal Services) server. This has been true all the way back to XP.
That's not the bloke that owns EasyJet is it??
I wouldn't take design advice from someone who paints aircraft like he does :-)
Joking apart, that gets my vote as well, excellent

Re: MS FTW!
Is that you, alter-Eadon??
As my Lord Vimes says above, the term global web crime lords could be applied to many people, although not quite the ones Mr Archibald is thinking of...
Theresa May, David Cameron, Keith Alexander for instance?
What are they going to do with them? If a retailer is offering buy-back on an item, It's usually because they can sell them on to other folk, but I can't see this being a viable option.
Maybe they think sufficient people will use the money they get from the buy-back to put towards a new purchase?
Re: Land Rover. We may not own the company any more
Hence we can blame the faulty Jags on the Indians who own and run it, not on the UK ex unionised car workers who killed the industry by producing Austin Allegro's and Morris Ital's
Are you a greengrocer? Only you seem to have a problem with apostrophes...

At time of writing a whopping one-third of the world’s millions of PCs were still running Microsoft’s 13-year-old client operating system
I would be intrigued to know how many Windows 2000 desktops there are still out there in daily use. I know a number of our clients still run it.
Re: This is just a certificate for fascist snoopers
Mr Godwin, I presume?

You managed to get the word "PODULES" into a headline!
So you have a problem with anti-spam blacklists, and yet you say that you run your own email server - so just what anti-spam protection do you use on your server then? Or do you just let your users sort out the shit themselves?
the world's first 3D-printed, rocket-powered aircraft
I'm not trying to cast aspersions (or, indeed, nasturtiums) on the SPB staff, but is that really the case?
It just surprises me that, as 3D printing has been around for a few years now, some enterprising amateur rocketeer or RC plane enthusiast hasn't already done this?
The LOBBER was a definite highlight, those of us on the chat were beginning to worry that you'd set up the camera in the wrong place...
so that Britain could send out a pair of Supermarine Spitfires to sink it.
What a complete load of bollocks, as if they would send a couple of Spitfires. It took 3 heavy cruisers, four destroyers and 14 Fairey Swordfish to sink her.
I hear Balmer is looking for a job. He says hes worked with mobiles before.
No, I'm sorry, but he doesn't meet the required standards. The article clearly states
Technical expertise in the underlying engineering and physics would also be highly desirable, and some knowledge of the wider telecoms and networking field is essential.
On that basis alone, he's got no chance...
"You have a woman's hand, milord! I'll wager these dainty pinkies never weighed anchor in a storm."
Oh, and shouldn't it be Low Orbit Hydrogen Assisted Navigator now, I can't remember.
Never mind the quality, feel the width!!
Oh, and how do I get to type a whimsically slanted bang?
I really. really hope you were doing it deliberately, otherwise your Fail is immense
I think he did the old "running along the back from one end to the other" trick whilst the photo was taken...
Unfortunately, whilst a nice idea in principle, it is becoming clearer as more information is released that the underlying infrastructure of the current internet has been fatally compromised by the efforts of security services worldwide.
I can't see that there will ever be an internet which is free from the possibility of such interception,apart from starting again from scratch with new hardware, software and cryptography standards untainted by government interference, and this is not a feasible or practical solution for the internet as a whole.
The national broadcaster is milking the anniversary for all it's worth
Oh God, it's going to be soooo naff!
