Too may of the above comments seem to miss the point. WTF has this got to do with delays????
I'm not usually paranoid but are these posters shills?
It is to do with someone posting something on twitter, which is legal and not defamatory, but only negative and then being threatening with being denied boarding. If true - and I trust the reg - then this is absolutely damming. Like giving a bad review to a film and then not being allowed to go to the cinema.
That is all.
It really, really isn't going to happen
Driverless cars isn't going to happen in any meaningful way any time in the next 100+ years (during which time the car itself may be replaced) - apart from possibly on motorways.
I refer you to the speech recognition debacle, always 10 years away, always looks likes it works, never works well enough for people to actually use it. If it worked smartphones wouldn't have screens would they?
If driverless cars worked, cars wouldn't have steering wheels. Ain't gonna happen.
You can't catch Malaria from the Internet.
I think you'd have to be extremely naive to think that Facebook interaction is not able to monitored by the NSA et al. Leaving aside that there may be NSA backdoors put their by FB for the NSA at their insistence and FB wouldn't be able to legally refuse to comply or tell us about (or at least that what they'd be told - as for the actual legality...). Furthermore it's also eminently possible the security services have the root keys for all the trusted browser certificates and can use PRISM to slurp up and de-crypt the data.
It's clear from the Snowden leaks that the Five Eyes want to be able to intercept arbitrary traffic on the Internet and they have made considerable progress in doing so. Do you imagine they would limit themselves against intercepting HTTPS traffic?
I suggest a new tactic R2
Let the Wookie win...
The clue is in the D in WWDC
@AC: 22:05GMT: Erm... I think "law" is the keyword here isn't it?
"The system is a conspiracy theorist's wet dream"
Well it isn't a theory is it?
70 to 46 support calls a month????
In an administration responsible for a city of 1.3 million.
Don't hobble the NHS
Since most profit making organisations choose to pay for software platforms when they could choose Free or Open source software do you not think there might be a case that there are some benefits to the MS platform in the round to large organisations?
"Besides, they'll probably just break the law and have him shipped out in secret from Sweden"
Just keep fighting that straw man Windrose. I noticed that in your first comment you also used the voice of your imagined opponent. Easier to do battle with a caricature is it?
You imagine that somehow that the justice system is susceptible to only errors of noise ("mistakes") and cannot systematically fail or be corrupted. That is the most extreme kind of magical thinking.
I can but speculate, however maybe if you'd read more of the leaked information that Assange has helped bring to light you might find the claims that he is being "got at" more credible.
"huge, humiliating, multi-government stitch-up job"
Yes, that is exactly what I for one think it is. And it's not remotely funny. Where is the mention of it being hidden? It's not hidden, it's happening right in front of your face and you still can't see it, because far from being the smart and savy chap who laughs down his nose at people you are in fact a naif.
Do you *really* imagine the US are not going to try and extradite him from Sweden in way they could not from the UK?
I can't believe I had to get to the second page before someone pointed out that google are likely considerably more interested in things other than this bloke's opinions, however interesting he thinks they are.
If they messing with what's-his-name's google ranking then they must be spending 100,000's of man hours messing with everyone's. I wonder if Mr Stagecoach even knows what an algorithm is, let alone a search one.
Maybe he should read this - http://www.google.com/explanation.html
Which is exactly what Google are planning to do eventually according to this article!
The datacenter that Apple are building could run private a cloud, either Azure, or possibly AWS or both in conjunction or instead of the public cloud.
MS Server OS
In my experience whilst it's not always true of the client OS the server OS improves with every version.
2008 R2 is "built-on" windows 7, but in any case Windows 2008 was still a lot better than vista.
Native VM guest replication would be very useful indeed for hot backups without third party software.
Commercial TV and Radio
Whatever the arguments one way or another, I'd rather any arrangement without adverts to any arrangement with adverts.
My time is worth much more than commercial TV and radio are selling it for, and that's enough to win my support for the BBC,
