I came *this* close to buying a Mk2 dev kit. Kind of glad I didn't, as I'd like to see what the competition has to offer before investing in a VR/AR system.
Congratulations guys. Braver than I.
The Laundry Files are great, a cross between the action of Ian Flemming, the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft and with a large dollop of well informed geekyness!
Horses for courses. Good article.
Now, the question is, how to present this to a PHB who's heard the word "object" somewhere and thinks its a really good idea. *shudder*
Indeed, there is a part of me which likes this, as I own a Surface 3. I will keep an eye on this development. ('scuse the pun.)
Oh just one more, I can take it. I mean, I can give it up whenever I want. It's not really a problem. They just released Hearthstone for Android. I needs it man. Cut me some slack. (etc and so on.)
In the land of the Freyja, no one gives a Frigg.
I'm doing a small DC uplift at the moment (just 60 racks). Replacing under-floor cable non-management with lurvly new in rack structured cabling (fibre and copper). Makes a massive difference. New server goes in? Just patch to the sides of the rack, rather than running new cables under the floor.
Once it's all migrated to the new racks, we can rip out all the old crap and there is tonnes of it. I would take pics, but it's a bit of a no-no.
Geo-Blocking has got bugger all to do with "Cultural Diversity" and everything to do with "Maximizing Profits".
But the table is spanning across the page, running behind the adverts, so I can't read it.

I'm still waiting for a decent wrist slab. The current generation is still a bit, well, meh.
"Waaaaa! decryption is hard."
It's not impossible to break a single target, but that's not what he's after. He wants mass, unwarranted surveillance. This is just sour grapes, not a legitimate argument.
Yet another story, with cool science bods NOT inventing my personal jetpack!!!
It's almost like they're not interested!
'Fraid not old bean. If you select Deleted Items and (depending on your version) select "Recover Deleted Items" you'll see that even those ones "emptied" are recoverable. Depending on your Exchange config, they can be in there for 14 days. It's known as "deleted item retention time".
Oh, and yes it does get backed up.
As hardware converges, it seems to me, that the only differentiator will be in who's walled garden you want to be in. The design philosophy behind these Samsungs seems to lean more towards the walled garden than in the past. Lack of SD and Removable battery was this very differentiator, now, sadly not.
If by little chance you mean the same chance as finding a straw in a haystack during haystack building week in Haystackia.
Agreed that the US needs a political shake up. However, UKIP? Saying what the public think privately? How do you know what the pubic think and furthermore, privately? Do you work in the doughnut?
That on Wikipedia, that the US mobile market is used as an example to define what an oligopoly is.
No. It'll be much, much worse. They company can sue the government, in a court of arbitration, which will have the power to interpret and void a sovereign nation's legislation if that legislation damaged "investors" potential profits. So the FCC would be up shit creek, as would the EPA and in the UK, all the "Off-X" entities. Investor-state dispute settlement is fucking scary.
Well.. some of the money. For example, BT group have a D/E of 0.7 meaning for every £1 of investor's money they have borrowed another 70p, to fund the groups activities. But you're right, of course, I'm not sure about the UK, but in the US, if a CEO failed to get "Shareholder Value" (Read, increased share price, dividends, or performed a buy back of shares) with profits, then he can and in some cases have been sued.
So the landowners don't set the prices, the government does? What happened to the cold hand of the market?
And where do you think the savings will go to?
1) Infrastructure, albeit unprofitable rural ones.
2) Passed onto the customers with cheaper prices.
3) "Shareholder Value" and "Executive bonuses"
If the manager wants to view/chat to a particular person, Skype/Facetime etc?
If the manager is just monitoring "the workers", CCTV or equivalent?
If he wants to wander round, "showing the face". Bloody well go there!
If the kid told them, before the hack, that "x" exploit was open, but they ignored him and did nothing, with a reasonable fix time, then they have been negligent and in my opinion, should be liable for their own security costs. (Bearing in mind, the kid does now have a criminal conviction over and above their sueball.You can't sue a burglar for the cost of a security system, after leaving your windows open.)
If however, this was a straight black hat hack, then yes, he should be liable.
It doesn't state if this was the case or not.
Thinks that the warning about, students, transients, married women and the like was willfully ignored, due to voting demographics. To me, this smacks of gerrymandering. That or they are completely incompetent. Either one is mildly depressing.
Very cool, but you're supposed to be working on my bloody personal jet pack!!
Ahh there will be beer, say no more!
I've read and re-read most of them down the years. Being a D&D and fantasy literature fan, the Colour of Magic/ Light Fantastic really tickled my funny bone. I do remember looking forward to each book, to find out which story arc it would be for. I think he wasn't considered "literary" for the simple reason, his style was fun and accessible, without a degree in English Lit.
Very sadly missed.
Nah... it's the bloke from the GoCompare.com site!
"Congratulations, you destroyed the internet from selfish ignorance!"
Wow, your ESP is awesome, posting without the use of the internet, on the internet.
The most corrupt organizations on the planet are ANY organizations that have a monopoly/oligopoly of power.
For example, when it had a monopoly of power, the Roman Catholic Church ran roughshod over those who dissented and screwed the populace for tithes and the like.
As proven time and again, corporations, who by definition are there to "maximize shareholder value" will stop at very little to gain a monopoly.
We invest our supposed representatives with the monopoly of power to reign in these tendencies. These, in turn have been corrupted, by the fact than in our society, money = power.
It all depends on the business, of course, but I suspect most businesses will have some functions they'd rather keep on-prem.
For example, the contract I'm on now receives vast quantities of raw data over time which then needs real time analysis, conversion and then passing to a production facility. The compute costs alone would make your eyes water if it had to be done on a public cloud. Not to mention the security and IP implications of chucking it off site.
Archive, yes. Web front ends, probably but business critical 5x9s functions, I doubt very much.
Very sad news. His books are wonderful and I've managed to convince my daughter to read them, she loves them too.
Since it was a DNS issue, I doubt a mirror would have helped, as the redirection to said mirror also uses DNS.
For copying a song.
Co-incidentally it's the same length of time you could get for manslaughter or large scale fraud.
Didn't you forget the:
(cue: Won't Get Fooled Again, The Who)
It's actually the other way around. It's the gravitation on large scale structure of the universe that they noticed that led the scientists to conclude that there wasn't enough visible mass to account for it and in addition Dark Matter accounts for about 28% (approx.) of the total matter/energy in the universe, but coupled with Dark Energy adds up to the 95% you mentioned.
... and as I understood it, the Higgs bosons very quickly degenerated into the Higgs Field soon after the Big Bang but before the "quark soup" period of inflation. This would lead one to suggest it's the integration with the field rather than boson, that gives particles their respective masses.
I use the same caveats as you and would welcome a better explanation from a learned commenter.

Awww, you're no fun! Let him play!
I shall peruse it with interest. Nice find.
I'd just like to be on the record as saying, that I thoroughly enjoy reading your contributions to whatever topic you pronounce upon. I try to find pattern in the verbiage and do find occasional lucidity. Please ignore the vulgar cretin ACs and don't stop posting.
The Commentard Uncertainty Principle.
The Higgs Field?
Yes, those buggers. (MS and FB are other examples)
Not necessarily, for example after the heavy bombardment period (approx. 600mil years) after the formation of the earth, with nill oxygen and very harsh conditions, life emerged on Earth. Similar conditions (with liquid water oceans) existed on Mars. Combine that with the somewhat speculative exchange of organic materials from meteor strikes, then it's not inconceivable that life could form on more than one place. Not impossible, I may point out, just improbable.
Get them in and they might learn some science! (I know, I know, fat chance)
Each to their own and the more choice, the better. Personally, I run a cyanogenmod android fork.
Very cool stuff. (Granted, a supernova is something like 100 billion deg K, but you get my point)
It has to be the hard water version, to get the strength correct (along with warming the mug with a little hot water first).
Have an upvote. I despair at the standards of El Reg. In my day the "I for one..." obligatory comment would be at least in the top three comments.
Can you link to what you mean?
I thought the Shannon Limit was to do with Bandwidth/Noise/Error-Correction ratios. I'd be interested to learn more!
At that sort of speeds, could we finally see a reason to ditch the landline once and for all. I mean, even 150MB would put most fibre/cable installations to shame. Alas, I doubt the technology would make it's way to deepest darkest Somerset anytime soon.
