RE: train driver.

It couldn't be that perhaps the current systems are deficient or anything else *other than* willful negligence?

I mean, I was reading this as a tragic accident so far and didn't know for myself that he was proven guilty of anything yet. Thanks for saving us all the time to find out.

Guilty. 79 dead already, what's the death of one more amirite?

Why the Apple-Samsung verdict is good for you, your kids and tech

Re: Identity stealing

Dude. I’ll bite, just because it’s better than doing work. But I’m entirely ignoring the first part of your post.

* Apple didn't invent black, in electronic devices or otherwise. It’s a colour that generally doesn’t offend the majority, just like white.

* Icons to launch apps, square or otherwise, are the tried and tested method of launching apps (easily) since OS’s evolved from console apps, though I do remember XTREE. Icons are hardly Apples.

* SSung also didn’t choose to implement icons that: flash red and blue randomly, positioned roughly in a grid concentrically, disappear as you go to select them, have the icon default shape of a Torx security screw head with a triangular, multi-coloured background while swirling everything across the screen like stuff in a fishbowl so things overlap and you can’t select the one you want… breaths… probably is because while certainly distinctive - it’s stupid and would piss people off. Not something you aim for when you want them to buy your crap.

It’s hardly *novel* to opt with using square app / web link icons in a square grid on a square piece of screen real estate. There is loads of prior art to prove that too.

No it won't. Most SE QLD local govts already use specialised mobile, devices for traffic infringements.

Apple admits iPhone battery suckage, promises fix

6th

I supplied a title anyhow.

I thank you el reg for just reporting the news. Sure you make up units, but you didnt this time at least jump on the everything-gate bandwagon. Thank you. It's just a glitch in a dam iphone - not a presidency ender.

Just came from http://www.theaustralian.com.au/australian-it/apple-admits-to-iphone-4s-software-bug-that-drains-the-battery/story-e6frgakx-1226184443383

A fairly normal article until you get assaulted with "Antennagate" and "Batterygate" ... really? That's as stupid as "Utegate": http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/utegate-cops-put-malcolm-turnbull-in-clear/story-0-1225744498449

Watergate was a long time ago but the stupid Baby Boomer reporters here won't get off it. Stop smoking those things and stop making lame, unnecessary, words up and then injecting them into your report.

This whole wordgate affair smells of a ripe conspiracygate.

Enigma

wasn't connected to the internet.

I agree with your first sentiment - no need to connect it to the internet. I disagree that it's invulnerable to attack if it's not though.

Cuffed Oz bank Trojan perp aiming to bleach his hat

Title

Knew what he was doing was wrong and illegal. Nothing different to picking someone's pocket but much worse cause can/do rob them broke with potential to dip in again and again.

He would have known the risks and moral slant of his actions, I have 0 sympathy for this scum. Lock him up already.

& only "developing" "gaming to excess" @ 14? n00b. No wonder he turned to a life of crime :)
