Well, they have to have a "revolutionary" new feature to sell on the 6S, don't they?
Firefox lost me when they updated every thirty seconds and killed my add-ons. I have no love for Chrome, but it works and is relatively simple.
13MP camera takes magnificent hi-res shot, then gets uploaded to FB and converted to 640 x 480.
Would someone please post the "proper" heterogeneous mix of color, gender, age, religious belief, political leanings, and sexual preference in the "perfect" company please?
If we don't know what to shoot for, how can we ever know when we get there?
After passing DRIP in three days, MP's are skipping Parliament bathroom breaks. They're afraid they'll go to the loo and come back living in a Kratocracy.
Re: If it aint broken
It's revolutionary new security to make them even more secure.
It does rain on occasion. Nice to have a PC sitting in the corner to cover the dead time.
Would be nice to have Grand Theft Auto 5 though. Not out on PC yet, despite computers being more profitable.

"Amazon just launched a Fire phone, which came with a bevy of cameras including four tiny ones and LEDs that can track the position of the owner's head and tilt images in response – a tech Amazon calls Dynamic Perspective."
Never had someone slap my phone away saying "Can't see that at all. It's the wrong viewing angle dammit!"
Now they are just inventing stuff to keep their programmer employed. Here's a tip. Make a phone where the phone works plus emails with texts / email arriving consistently and I'll be happy. All the other multimedia crapola is unnecessary.
Why say it was needed when current powers are adequate?
They are politicians. They lied.
Re: Why 128 bit AES not 256 bit?
Why AES at all???
How about a non-American government generated encryption method instead?
Congratulations Apple, good luck with that. I've promised to never step foot in an iStore so I won't see your design for myself.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Can't wait for the first Foxbot to slash its own hydraulic lines. That'll make 'em take notice.
They were there, but noticed our interest and *poof*.
You're also on the list if you read this article.
Delete your cache now and put on a tin-foil helmet as soon as possible!
Makes sense as Lindsay Lohan is obviously the only bikini wearing blonde in California.
We won't know for sure until we go there.
It's a lie we just don't believe anymore.
Last Saturday was Snowden's birthday.
I hope he can spend the next one back in the states with a Presidential pardon in his pocket. He has exposed chronic and continuing abuses in constitutional power and deserves to live his life freely.
Isn't a massive slap until he cries traditional (and deserved)?
Re: And what's the real subtext here...?
"Pressure from US lawmakers" makes me wonder if governments will have the ability to brick phones if they feel threatened. Would the Arab Spring have come about if the governments had this power?
Is the US fearing an Arab Spring and trying to build in a kill switch to serve their interests?
Will this be like Iron Man 3?
I suspect I'll be even more disappointed.
Re: Cloud security
Are we nearing peak Facebook?
Barnes Wallis is the best boffin example I can think of. Developing not one, but a string of innovative aircraft and weapons that shortened the war by a significant amount.
A boffin typically struggles against an ignorant establishment working on ideas seen as a waste of time by superiors. When proven right, he or she will get a curt acknowledgement and then be shunned for showing up the embarrassed "senior staffers" who thought they knew better. After they take some credit for themselves, of course.
Innovation, determination, and a desire to make things better with science is my definition of boffins. They could work in a multi-billion dollar corporation or a shed.
Boffins succeed in the face of endless, "That'll never work lad/lass."

"Alienware to release Windows PC. Comes with Steam pre-installed."
And only for a 35.00 quid fee for doing so.
Apple - We support and embrace competitive practices with apps,... until we offer a product, then any similar apps are banned.
"The lawsuit is without merit and we will defend ourselves vigorously," Genevieve Grdina told Reuters in an email.
The next words spoken @ Facebook... "MONEY FIGHT!!!"
Which is why...
I save my Word docs as RTF.
Wanting to keep up with fanbois demand, the new iPhone will have hand lotion and tissues dispensers mounted on the sides.
That isn't a Steam issue.
Sorry Vince, but that's software licensing. If you want to play Half Life on two Steam machines at the same time, then open a second Steam account and buy a second copy of the game for the second box.
I'm not aware of any games manufacturer who lets you play multiple copies of the same game (and serial number) on multiple machines at the same time. To them, that would be piracy and frankly, I would agree.
I pity the man. He's going to have a target on him the rest of his life.
Re: Since When?
I use Zalman coolers on all my high end machines and they work a treat. Don't forget that a decent thermal grease is needed as well to ensure successful mating to your cooling block, no matter what manufacturer you go with.

Only piece of electronics on earth without an NSA backdoor built in. Priceless.
@Panicnow - You say that like it's a bad thing.
Fixed it for you.

bestjetpilot is a crappy password.
Be3tJetP1lot! is much better.
"personally I can't think of a more brutally entertaining way to spend this coming Bank Holiday weekend."
A lady who likes FPS's??? I think I just fell in love. Want to get together over some Far Cry 3 multi-player? A little dual-play Splinter Cell? I'll be a gent and let you plant the first Claymore mine.

"Hello, your current home temperature is 42F. If you wish to increase this temperature to a habitable range, please wait while this informative six minute video demonstrating a radical new cleaning solution loads from YouTube."
"Feds want to know where $250m budget went following botched Oracle project"
I wonder if the invoice with a line item for "Carbon fiber racing sailboat hull" could be a factor?
Those drones will need cameras for proof of delivery so there is a whole bag of worms opened by them recording aerial video in residential neighbourhoods.
Everyone who bought a Surface 2 will snap up one of these. So that's what, two or three thousand people?
Buy that Microsoft stock kids.
What you fail to grasp is what Snowden talked about is what he knew about. He was not privy to everything and the shadows go a lot deeper than what our brief glimpse into the secret world reveals.
"So what is the point in these continuous revelations of diminishing scale? What's the agenda? What's the end game?"
To answer your question, liberty and freedom from tyranny. Ironically the same ideal that the USA itself was formed on.
We banned Windows 8 from the premises long before XP support ended.
"This 21st century burglary has to stop," said David Hickton, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania.
His statement was released the same day that this story broke.
The USA. Our surveillance is authorized by Congress (Mostly). Yours isn't, so it's illegal.
I was wondering why those "Russian" troops in Crimea had SpaceX patches on their shoulders,
GCHQ Approved - No one but us can read the contents.
Encryption does not stop access to information, it can only delay access.
Properly installed crypto with strong keys can delay access much more effectively. Enigma in WW2 cracked the codes, but they had a devil of a time getting into U-Boat traffic because the Kriegsmarine stuck to proper protocols. "Oyster" traffic was never broken by Bletchley Park as a result.
Brilliant achievement, but someone needs to look at getting decaff coffee.
