Passwords? For online banking? Is it 2005 again?
Intelligence created by humans could likely be a little human - vicious, egotistical, etc :(
And you know exactly how many people the limit is?
We already sustain 10X more people than would've been possible in the past, I see no reason more breakthroughs won't continue to increase yields of existing land AND enable farming of land previously untenable (deserts, oceans, etc).
He probably installed W8 and then got frustrated because tapping the screen didn't work - thought it was like the iOS update which added waterproofing functionality.
Just imagine how unfriendly a Linux robot would be.
It's their site, their rules - as long as those rules don't contravene laws. Just like on El Reg, they can decide to remove stuff that is posted for any reason they wish.
I think El Reg just wanted to post the image themselves - now who's hating the hero image?
"In the Navy"
Just how falcon heavy is it?
Clean design with space between things is hardly modern BS, it's graphic design 101.
BTW are you complaining about desktop or mobile - I feel people should always stipulate.
They're in 14nd place with three million dollars. Where will eleventy million put them?
Come on El Reg, at least tell us what he was banging on about - in a thread about a card game - that was bad enough to delete twice?
"Over the next decades the challenge will be for people to develop skills that cannot be displaced by machines", he said.
"The world we are creating is an opportunity for mass creativity. Those are the sorts of jobs that we need," he said.
Or, the challenge will be for societies to get over this notion that everyone should HAVE to work. If machines can do all the work, people should be freed from work not pushed into doing something new for the sake of it. Why bother using labour-saving technology in the first place if we don't want to save people from labour?
Officials who can lean on the prison governor.
Just comes across as a smart-arse to me. Although not really that smart given his life is utterly under the control of the government.
So global climate change is only happening in some places, that is to say it's not global?
In all fairness he probably does deserve it based on company performance - he's in charge of a company which has grown in value incredibly under his reign.
I was under the impression some WP8.x devices would support W[P]10 although I cannot remember where I got that impression.
"Write once run on any device" doesn't actually mean all devices have to have the same instruction set. Even with Apple, you have to compile your code multiple times to build binaries compatible with 64bit & non-64bit hardware and sometimes more - it does this automatically and packages it into one big file but you can see it compiling 2-3 times in one of my projects.
So W10 could still support x86/64 and ARM in the same way as long as they have all the APIs - Visual Studio would just build multiple versions which get uploaded to the Store, and your device automatically downloads the appropriate one.
Maybe it was in theory worthwhile initially - although Winsows Phone would probably have been better - but as El Reg showed only this week you can now get a full Win8.1 tablet, that actually runs OK, for £100! So where's the place for a cut-down, budget version that costs more than the real thing?
Is it a glass table?
Yeah, nobody at MS uses computers for their job. They don't count as 'real people' when it comes to knowing about computer use-linked RSI.
Really very similar to the super-cheap W8 upgrade they offered (£25 IIRC) except it's totally free this time rather than almost free during the promotional period.
Where is your medical degree from Jess?
My Lumia phone IS my sat-nav.
Not if it works he hasn't!
And now I really want curry. You bastards.
...and thanks for all the F***
I'm still waiting for it on my Lumia 1020. At least I think I am, nobody has told me it's available or that I have it installed, and voice recognition is only good enough for "phone mum" or "call 0123 456 789".
If it was 32GB maybe, since many Win8 tablets ships with 32-64Gb SSDs. For a travel-PC that spare 90Gb will do nicely, we forget just how much space ONE gigabyte is when it comes to storing documents!
Seemingly both incredibly daft and actually quite cool, in a nerdy kind of way.
I think all of us were BORN with dainty fingers. They just didn't stay that way.
It's almost like the world of technology changes over time.
America's the best country in the world and if you don't agree I'll shoot you with this gun I am entitled to own.
In an American's eyes, a Canadian would view the opportunity to relocate to the US of A like a winning lottery ticket!
Gates was known for being pretty tough too in the early days, but more on the technical side where you might get ripped apart if your proposal wasn't thorough.
Well they both left already didn't they - X-files went on for something like 9 series and at least one of the main cast left well before the end. I only watched the first few series but I'm told it went down the Lost route i.e. crap.
I'm not sure - being lashed to the point they have to stop so you don't die, allowed to heal so they can repeat the process, TWENTY TIMES, many might prefer death. He's surely likely to die from the punishment and/or spend years in agony.
It was pretty soft really, all things considered - like it was coming down sideways.
I recommend reading "The Light of Other Days" (SF novel) as a "what if privacy disappeared" thought experiment. It's quite apt. For that matter, the Culture universe (Iain M Banks) - which is often depicted as a free-thinking utopia - shares this concept although it's not really a key theme.
The implementation was undeniably ugly but there's really SO much promise to the concept. Maybe not for every-day use - that depends on fashion as much as utility - but for many, many learning and educational uses.
I have a few great app ideas but it seems a bit pointless to work on them with nobody to sell the apps to :(
They've stopped selling the prototype version and moving the development team out of the "pie in the sky department" into a real division - that sounds more like gearing up for a real product to me.
Yeah, the 1020 is flipping amazing not just as a camera but for video and audio. When you record a live band/gig on it, and play it back in your living room, it actually sounds like you remember it!
The picture even shows someone half-way through trying to make a bacon roll-up.
I guess you could grind up crispy bacon and mix it with tobacco. I'm hereby registering "Pigar"
So you want to the EU to dictate tax rates to member states?
You pay tax on profit. Paying 2000 salaries costs quite a lot :)
Yeah, every country uses the same technical standards.
Using an open-source tool in preference to their own product? Ouch. They used to use Perforce for Windows OS development as well during the VSS era.
That seems a poor argument, regardless how useless this particular product is.
With baby crap that's all you need to sell, sometimes... play on the worried parents' insecurities about their ability to look after the child.
I think you're overthinking this.
