Turns out Apple holds a patent on the idea
This is my nomination for tagline of the week.
You owe me a new keyboard ...
... this one's full of tears induced by your terribly sad story.
Pedant alertIf the true distance is approximately 0.1 miles then 1 mile is not only imprecise it is also inaccurate. A rounded value of 0 miles is much more accurate even though it has the same precision as 1 mile. On the other hand 0.1 miles is both more accurate and more precise than either 0 miles or 1 mile. The precision implies by quoting 0.10956224649966498 miles certainly exceeds the precision of the measuring device used and is therefore inappropriate. However, they may be nothing wrong with the accuracy of that figure. Mine's the anorak with the train timetable, notebook and pen in one pocket and a camera in the other.

I, for one, welcome our new high-energy overlords!
@I tried this ...
You, sir, owe me a new keyboard!

I put up with adverts during F1 on ITV and I rejoiced when it came home to the BBC.
Even my missus has starting watching it and swears she enjoys it!
We already get the minimum Sky package but there is no way I'm paying £12.50 extra per month to watch the other half of the season.
So, do I watch *some* of races or none of them?
I honestly don't know at the moment but I'm erring towards none of them.
However, a road-trip to Hockenheim using the German autobahns would cost less than Sky Sports and definitely appeals a lot more!
No key? RIP!
Surely, it is now illegal to "forget" the key(s) for any encrypted data?
Using the RIP Act 2000, the courts can legally compel you to remember.
