The 433Mhz band
The 433Mhz band is licensed as low power frequency band.
It is also common to use 868Mhz for wireless sensor (LTE interference is now a problem in that frequency). I don't know about car keys.

I don't rush into getting into new standards. I only got me a HDTV three years ago along with blu-ray player since they do give better image in HDTV then DVD players. The difference is that many DVD players are analogue (scart connected) while blu-ray players are all digital (HDMI).
As for upgrading to 4K blu-ray. I might do so in about 10 to 20 years. Since there is limit to how much resolution they can offer people in the long run. I don't think it is going to a lot above 4K.
I continue to use VHS and DVD. Even if they are old standards. VHS being analogue it doesn't has the sharp image of digital image. It does not look bad on HDTV if the tape is not damaged.
Now there is peak mobile (device) at the moment. When it is going to end I don't know. What I do know that once it ends there is going to be a lot of free spectrum around.
As for PC. I don't think they are going away. What might happen (and in short of has) are people living without computers and internet at all. I don't have any numbers that are new, but for Europe (EU) in 2012 that was at 73%.
Denmark is planning to turn off its FM broadcast signals in 2019. I don't know why since not many people in Denmark use DAB or DAB+ radios and few cars have them installed at the moment (far as I know).
This won't apply to cable companies in Denmark that send FM signal over cable.
You should have installed FreeBSD or some other variant of *BSD. Linux is a mess today and that is not going to change any time soon.
Disclaimer: I am currently running Gentoo Linux, but I am working on moving to FreeBSD or PC-BSD as a desktop in the future. When that happens depends on the amount of money I have. At the moment that change is long distance away. I hope that is going to change.
I've been getting annoying Google Adsense video ads that auto-play with sound in this article. I want to know if anyone else has been getting this also.
As for Turkey, there chance of getting EU membership any time soon are now far, far away and the distance is increasing at the moment. This blocks are against EU law and values (far as I know).
Meters are placed before the fuses (or circuit breaker) in the house. So they are not in place to stop this from happening, this is according to what I know about house electricity at the moment. As for the smart meters exploding, the electronics in them are clearly weaker then in there older analogue power meters (higher level of complexity).
I don't see the need for this. While 2G (GSM) is currently being used the usage of that old standard is dropping, since many users have moved over to 3G and LTE connections already. What is the problem is coverage, that has nothing to do with spectrum.
Current mobile bands are today, 800/900/1800/2100/2600Mhz. It is my view that such coverage is enough and steps should be taken in order to start phasing out 2G slowly. That would free up 900/1800Mhz in Europe for 3G and LTE. It might happen naturally as thing advance, at the moment, it is not doing so.
As for usage in 700Mhz. I think that UK is the only country in EU that is planning such usage at the moment. Rest of EU is going continue to use this spectrum for DVB-T/T2 broadcast signals.
Friend Zone was invented when standards that cannot be met did go into force. It might have existed in some form all the human history. I just can't back that up with any data so that is going to remain a guess at best. Social demands today are based on unrealistic standards, both for men and women. Men also put women in friend zone, you just don't hear about it. Since often (among the population) women have more chose then men.
As for this banning of the booth babe, this is in fact "political correctness" gone completely crazy with power. What this mean is those trade shows (disclaimer: I have never been to one and I might never been to one) are as about exciting as building with nothing in it. While there are those how remain against this they should not force there view on others as is being done here. Being that U.S is the home of puritanism that left Europe in the 17th century, since nobody listened to them (and they wanted to control people) this is no surprise as such to me.
The most sexist people that I know of are those how often (not always) claim to have the best and most correct and highest ethics around.
As for me. I don't care what people do for long as they do so with there own free will. If they are being forced and that is something else and needs to be stopped.
I got this email message also. I had assigned Twitch its own password, but the email address is shared among several thing. I don't plan on closing down that email address unless I start to get massive amount of spam emails.
I did change the password for security reasons. I don't remember if I logged into Twitch on 2 and 3rd March.
I don't know how fast material degrade in space. What I do material in space does degrade with time. If any reptile type of civilization was in place all its monuments on Earth are long since turned into dust.
As for space, there is always a chance something might remain, while not in working state, at least in highly degraded state. If this actually happened I don't know, the interesting fact however is that it only took the human race around 10 million years to evolve to current state. So this might have happened more than once and more than twice. Since 65 million years is a long time.
So the IT v2.0 bubble goes on and on. While this man has plenty of money to spend it is clear that he is going to loose it once the IT bubble implodes in on it self.
As for his worth. That is going to be a subject of debate after the oil (in Saudi Arabia only) and IT crash in few years time.
Of many bad things on the internet. Google is the worst (they might even be worse then Paypal). Google Adsense for instance is now so difficult to get into that it is almost impossible. Unless you get tens of thousands of views pr day. Youtube is getting worse and they are slowly moving it towards subscription model.
Google search is now getting rather useless due to the filter bubble that exits. That filter bubble is preventing good results appearing in the search results and it is now also heavily filled with advertisements and sponsored links. There many more things that I could count up. But most people get the idea what I am saying (I hope).
Too much reliance on the internet is dangerous. One day *poof* the server that you need to use is gone and never coming back. Making your operating system useless in the process. That is a rather bad future for users.
The internet bubble v2.0 collapse is going to be massive (on a massive) scale. I don't know what the effects are going to be in the long run, but it is going to be something.
I used to live in Denmark for two years and seven months, then I had to move back to Iceland. After one month and two weeks living in Iceland I am ready to move back to Denmark. Sadly that won't happen for a while, but I am going to make it happen in due time.
What most people don't understand about Denmark is that the culture is a bit different, since it is in Scandinavia (Denmark, Norway, Sweden) and part of the nordic countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Faeroe Islands, Iceland + few others). As for the culture in Denmark, you get used to it and most people integrate into it properly.
This type of law is in effect in Iceland. The data must be stored for six months in Iceland. Authorities demand the data to be stored for "security" reasons.
UK is a member of the EU. That also means it's a member of EU customs union. When you shop anything from other EU member you only pay local VAT (Amazon charges at the VAT rate in your country) that is charged by the seller. If you shop outside EU the import rules that EU has set apply to that you bought.
>Sounds like your using BT. Ditch them and get a real ISP!
Not in the UK, but living with my parents for now (until I get my own place again) and they only got bad 3G connection with download quotas and that is the best connection they got. Iceland in general has download quotas (in downloads outside Iceland) and I do consider that a bad thing, but they are worst at Siminn that now has download quotas on every (inside and outside Iceland) they sell and in many places (smaller towns) the only way to get 50Mpbs speed to is to deal with them. There largest package has 3TB download limit, but it counts both UL/DL in it, so it burns up fast for any active internet user.
Since I don't have any streaming option available to me (limited bandwidth, download caps and so on). I do hope they release it on blu-ray soon so I can buy it.
No wonders flash drivers don't last. They are using quartz for clock/cycle thing. I wonder is there is anything that can be used instead of quartz that last longer and is more stable.
@ Ledswinger, I didn't find anything about smart meters and them being requirement by EU regulation. What I did find was this thing here.
"(27) Member States should encourage the modernisation of distribution networks, such as through the introduction of smart grids, which should be built in a way that encourages decentralised generation and energy efficiency."
If you can point me towards the article that says smart meters are an requirement it would be helpful.

When the current IT bubbles implodes it is going to hit the current social networks hard. Mostly Facebook since it is based on weak foundation and always has been. I don't know if anything is going to replace Facebook or the social network as we know them. It might not happen, or something else might appear out the chaos the IT bubble v.2.0 crash is going to bring.
I still haven't got past episode two. I don't like this new "what-ever-it-is" in the episodes. This was bad in the last series, but it is unbearable now. Somebody (the writers) is clearly doing a job that he does not like or care about, but wants the pay-check for it anyway.
While I won't ignore the current season. It won't be on any of my favourites lists.
Until that streaming service goes the bankrupt path. Should happen soon, when the I.T 2.0 bubble goes burst. I am sure that is going to happen soon. Since that bubble has expanded high and wide over the past few years.
What about killing something like GSM, a outdated technology by any standard today. It uses 900/1800Mhz.
Mobile doesn't need anything from 700Mhz and up to 2600Mhz (with gaps in it). They already have huge amount of spectrum to use. In fact, this is what they got already.
I think that would be enough for everyone if controlled in reasonable manner.
Whatever you do if you get arrested. Don't talk to the police, it cannot and does not help you in any way. Play a chess in your mind or something while being arrested.
I am not a lawyer. This is just a common sense.
@ Anonymous Coward
"I think you'll find the density would indeed change quite a bit if you managed to [...]". Now you have to explain this claim to me. With data, please.
I did not find not the explanation I was looking for, but this is close enough. Teaspoon of white dwarf stuff has the weight of around 5 tons.
This is just regular old physics. This diamonds are heavier than the diamonds you find on Earth, since in each one of them have more carbon molecules than in diamonds found on Earth due the gravity and compression that they did undergo when they where formed in a core of a supernova. That density is not changed even if a peace of them would be removed from the surface of a white dwarf (I don't see how that would be possible, this white dwarf has the same gravity as our own sun).
It is also worth noticing that this white dwarf is orbiting a neutron star, even heavier and more dense star then the white dwarf.
You can read an science paper on this subject here.
This also means that the diamonds, or crystallized carbon is also dense. A piece with a size sand particle having the mass of a two or three buses (maybe more). Not useful on Earth at all and not even is space. A size of pebble would have same gravity as the moon.
I once had a Myspace account. It has been deleted long time ago. I did try once to re-lunch my Myspace account. It failed and it got deleted again.
It is going to stay that way. I don't plan to return to Myspace any time soon. I also expect a lot of accounts to be deleted in next few days and weeks with this email campaign taking place.
@ adnim, It is already considered suspicious if you are not on-line if you have been that in the past. A pregnant women found that out in the U.S some months ago. There was a news on this on BBC News few weeks ago. I don't know if it was covered here at The Register.
The general assumption seems to be that everyone is on-line on the internet if they can. This applies mostly to the younger generation. There are some people who are not on-line due to economic or social factors (this is all calculated by the NSA and other spying organizations around the world). In the U.S at least there are around 35 to 50 million people that are not on the internet and never have been on the internet. The number is around the same (in counts of %) in the EU.
As for Facebook, that platform is already dead. I have noticed a sharp drop in postings on it over the past few months. It is my best guess that this drop started around 20 or close to it months ago and has been continuing since. People don't delete there accounts right away, but I think Facebook has just gone the MySpace way and nobody noticed it yet (at least, not many people anyway at this point).
I am sure as going to drop Facebook soon as I can, in the same manner as I did when I dropped MySpace when it died few years ago. MySpace still exists, it just doesn't have so many users today as it did on its peak.
If you want smart TV (I got one). Just get one that doesn't have a microphone or camera installed. That is the simply way of avoiding this issue.
According to DR Nyheder the plea about not using TNT did not go that well. The map of Denmark has been so good as destroyed by 10.000 players taking a poke at the Minecraft server hosting Denmark. The traffic was so high at one point that the server crashed. I hope the creators of the map of Denmark made a backup copy of it for an hard reset in the future.
There are pictures of the damage in this news. Its in Danish.
Denmark is not Baltic. It's Scandinavian, there is an difference in terms of culture. As for the map. Many people need bigger hard drives before they can download the map.
I've been getting a lot of spam in recent days. They are not from AOL but rather spam-bot registered domains that have no function and no content. The IP address range also suggest an new spam bot network that is currently working overtime pumping out spam emails.
I can't afford Windows 7 for my gaming usage. I have one computer running Windows XP doing other things (recording earthquakes) (that's two copies of Windows 7 that I would need to buy). I would move it to Windows 7 if I could, but I can't. No money. That's why I am sticking to Windows XP for few more years at least.
I live next to Germany in Denmark. In Denmark the VAT rate is 25% on everything. While it is only 7% on food and 19% on everything else in Germany. The price is also lower in Germany then in Denmark.
There is however no limit on how much I can take with me over the border. Unless its soda (coca-cola and such) or beer. Since that is limited to 250 Liters on person according to EU rules. If it goes over that you have to pay toll of it and maybe VAT. For normal person it is not an issue since most people don't shop that much. But there are people how buy way more then the rules allow and if they get stopped by customs they loose everything they bought and get a fine here in Denmark (a big one).
EU rules also allow VAT free shopping for up to 300€ from none-EU countires that have borders with it. I checked the rules some time ago.
Here in Denmark, were porn is legal this is not an issue. It also doesn't appear to do any harm to any children far as I know.
It seems that O2 UK is blocking everything on the internet when "parental control" is selected. It includes my blog sites that are about nothing else then earthquakes and volcanoes, O2 UK own websites (why not) and BBC News website and more. I all I think about 99,9998% of the internet is blocked by O2 UK parental control filtering.
This is in my view nothing else then sneaking censorship into the back door. I thankfully live in a country (Denmark) where such things are not going to happen I hope. As for UK, they are already down the path of censorship in the name of saving the children who later grow up to be fucked up adults as an result of overprotection by the society.
We don't have a clue what is in the Oort Cloud. But I am sure that the Oort cloud contains more then just icy comets and minor planets (Pluto sized). While I don't think there are any gas giants in the Oort cloud there might be ice giants and earth sized planet there. The problem is finding them, since out there it is pretty darn cold (around 3 Kelvin).
This leak is bigger then just all SMS from the year 2008-ish until the website was hacked in November. It also contains ID numbers of Icelanders how did place orders with Vodafone IS and more. The biggest story is the SMS leaking, but there is more to this. They also stored passwords unencrypted in the SQL database that did leak.
I had my old and inactive email leak in this leak since I have been doing business with Vodafone IS in the past. However nothing else did leak that I am aware of at the moment.
So we have 11 miles walk each day. That is for the rest of the world (how uses metric) around 17 km. That is a lot of walking and that is a lot of strain on a person. Regardless if that person is in a good shape or not.
I also wonder if Amazon have not heard of an invention called the wheel. It would improve performance to just to add motorized carts for the employers to work with when they go and pick up orders.
While I have not worked in a warehouse (since none-existed where I used to live) I did do jobs that where just walking around and cutting grass. Total km over the day was different depending on the, but the longest was often up to around 20 km. But then I had to drag heavy bags and land-mowers all over the place to cut the grass.
Good luck with Síminn, they don't like to provide answers if you are not a customers of there and even then it can sometimes be difficult (I am a customer of Síminn in Iceland).
What The Register can do is to contact pfs.is and ask for answers there. They are the monitoring body for Iceland communications and rules. They might provide some answers by asking Síminn the right questions that needs to be answered in this case.
If you need to wash your eyes with soap after watching some women I got some bad news for you.
Thanks for the tip. This is just a bug in the list on my end. Consider it fixed. I just can't edit the comment above to fix it. This is also work in progress, since I do not have any clue what is coming our way in the next 50 years. So this classification system might need some re-write as things change.
So Google now has an Class 1 A.I, maybe Class 2 if it is advanced enough. While this is currently no threat to human as is it is important to keep track on this since you only need Class 4 A.I to create havoc.
I have my own classification system, since the one currently in use is outdated and does not grasp the scope of A.I computers.
The basis is this. All A.I levels are able to learn something (maybe not Class 0) at some point and advance as such.
Class 0 A.I is dumb as a rock.
Class 1 A.I can tell cat from a tree, and a face from a road and so on. It can also beat you in computer games and such things. It can adjust it self within it's limit.
Class 2 Can organize colour after wavelength. Tune radio and monitor television signals and more.
Class 3 Can build stuff from the ground up. Blueprints and everything.
Class 4 Can control network flow, machines and learn to limited extent.
Class 5 Can make executive decisions. When it needs to and for any reason it wants.
Class 6 Can maintain it self without any human interaction.
Class 7 Is an terminator like robot and can build one if needed. Can control anything electronic when it feels like it. It is still bound by it programming to extent.
Class 8 Is smarter then a human being. Is no longer limited to it's programming or other computer like limitation.
Class 9 Can solve quantum problems and start nuclear wars.
Class 10 Can exist in a quantum matrix that it build it self.
Class 11 Is smarter then anything in the known universe.
Class 12 Is smarter then anything on Earth and probably in known universe. It should not exist like anything above Class 9 A.I should not exist by anywhere in the universe (it might, we don't have a clue what is out there).
Class 13 Should not exist. Is undefined as is.
While I am no neurological scientist. I have long since figured out that human I.Q is based up on layers of functions. This can also be done in computers to get human like function (with all it's flaws and issues). My definition list is just my own work.
It is odd to let boys of same ages as the girls face charges like this. Since this is child on child, not adult against a child (that is illegal). While this might be something that parents need to discuss with there children. This is not a matter of law, cops and lawyers.
What I think happened is that someone got drunk with power and is now sending lawsuits to anyone with naked pictures of under-age girls, even if the person in question is an under-age boy or even a boyfriend of that girl.
It is about your flight angle (10 to 20%) and your distance from the tower in question. This mostly just works with GSM-900 rather then GSM-1800. Since GSM-900 can travel longer distances then GSM-1800.
They where actually worse then today's companies (so far, it might not get any better). For instance the East India Company ruled what is today's India, Pakistan and other countries. You can find details on Wikipedia under "Company rule in India". They also had there own set of laws, as do companies in the U.S today (and UK). Companies having there own laws is not so popular around the world today and never has been.
You can find laws related to East India Company on archive.org under "The law relating to India and the East-India Company; (1855)".
This restriction is because MPA and RIAA do not and have and do not want to have any understanding of technology. You can forget that this people want to understand the internet and how it works. All this people want and think about is greed and nothing else.
