Re: "NSA's "intent" to get specific figures on the number of attacks prevent out in the next week."
Well they defiantly helped things in Boston.
and the data given to GCHQ certainly helped prevent the recent attack on a soldier in London.
Data recovery costs?
Sure from a couple of servers, but no workstation should have any data worth recovering on.
Format and shove a fresh Image on the workstations and worry about a couple of servers later.
Good to see even the efficient Germans can manage to employ time and money wasting morons in the government.
I agree I'd much rather have this feature, it's something really missing IMO.
I've never dropped a phone down the toilet or into a bucket of water so that feature is neither here nor there for me.
I wonder how long those flaps will stay attached anyway, considering most would be getting this on a 2 year contract.
We have people that need jobs and too many tasty animals roaming around the countryside.
Surely this should be a self solving problem, the government could also make a quick buck on hunting licence fee's.
or we could all continue eating suspect meat from the supermarket???
I'll feel like I'm in death race or something, driving over things in the ground to get power-ups.
Chinese laws clearly forbid hacking attacks
Chinese laws clearly don't apply to the military
Re: And how much will BT be fined?
A good and proper gumming by the ASA has been delivered.
Not enough for you?
Re: I do not want to sound like
"RE-Retribution was the first time I felt as though I was watching a movie of a game. Seriously contrived environments (nazi zombies) were mostly to blame for that."
They were Soviet Zombies in RE weren't they?
Nazi zombies appeared in 'Iron sky' and it's rip-off 'Nazi's at the centre of the earth'
Both were better than the recent Resident Evil film(s)
"Kubodera offered no explanation for how the tentacles had been severed"
but noted that they were delicious.
Race To Infinity
My Village won.
Still no fibre.
They've not gone after everyone, as Apple have.
Seems to be a decent way of getting money in the door, doesn't seemed to have hurt their reputation or bottom line either.
Get out while the gettings good
I'd rather take the millions now than wait and hope they're still there later.
US Patient Office
Where they employ those too stupid to work at the DMV
People In Glass Houses
Something about stones.......................
Whatever they've been drinking.
Re: Good deals?
LOL, you what??
The workers are the first people to get stiffed.
It's a desperate scramble to pay off creditors and larger shareholders, then the management bolts out of the door with the remaining sacks of cash - leaving the poor workers stranded on a sinking vessel.
Re: Tragic waste of research of course
You can't move them, it's not like they're a box of books.
The mice will be severely immuno compromised and as such require specialist care and a extremely well controlled living environment.
They will also be mutated with any combination of human or other conditions, as such they can't be moved anywhere without being sacrificed.
Poor planning is the problem here, generators and spare desks belong in the basement - not millions of dollars worth of sensitive experiments.
Re: Kind of ironic
The compound on trial won't be the exact same compound extracted from the vine, it will have been modified to give greater potency and fewer side effects.
The compound found in the vine may be only moderately effective and present in trace amounts, it also might only be active if injected.
So going to see the 'herb man' who grinds up a few bits and pieces into a tea probably wouldn't do you any good.
Whats not to like here?
The main problem is you have two objects but you can only ever use one at a time. If I'm going to carry a tablet around with me it would be nice for it to work independently.
It seems like a good idea on paper, but in reality you have a phone and a ten inch square of plastic, or a tablet and no phone.
For the price it can't be far off having a Nexus 7 and a GS3
Re: Nice review
I'd like to see a couple of snaps not taken by a professional.
Hand the camera to the nearest joe bloggs and see how well the pictures stack up.
I've seen sample shots for alot of mobile phone cameras, they never look as bad as the ones I produce.
The kitchen sink, the company pet and half a packet of polos found of Elops desk.
Re: Move House
No thanks. Most people live in the country to get away from morons like you.
Now pony up so we can have some speedy internet.
Re: Peugeots + electrics =
You can run it off chip fat, or engine oil, gearbox oil or any oil of siliar consistancy.
All with the correct Bosch fuel system of course, and only legally chip fat/biofuel can be used on the road.
If they were able to stream moveis currently available at the cinema then it's a great idea.
I'm sick of the rubbish (Cinema Experiance) excuse the industry bleats at the public as justification for not rolling out a streaming service.
The 'Cinema Expericance' shouldn't involve emptying your wallet for a couple of tickets, and then emptying it again for a few snacks.
Last time I went to the cinema I took one look at the prices for everything, and realised we could go out for a nice meal for the same money - so we did.
Re: Its a good game....
Old games consoles need old screens.
The low res poor definition provided by an old CRT telly will help smooth some of the rough edges and textures making it much easier on the eye.
Goldeneye is a good game because it's a good game, graphics are irrelivent it's still a blast.
You get 720, but can explain why it's predesessor was called the Xbox 360?
"It wouldn't have made $440 million and certainly not in an hour."
This a hundred times over, it's not some simple two way street that Knight went the wrong way on - there's no possibility the system could have made money as fast as it lost it.
The story has made news because of the impressive amount lost in such a small time because of bad IT practise.
If they had good IT practises they would have tested outside of a live environment, implemented the system and made small amounts of money over time.
Re: Nothing will change
It's the NHS, of course nothing will change.
Tar and feather the upper management - so we can easily identify those who've failed.
Is the defendant a resident of California, or the USA?
Do we now have to take all businesses to court in their home town whenever we have a grievance??
of course they are assuming the identity twitter have on file is real, so there is someone to actually sue here.
Come on Samsung, you've gotta up your game and 'make' the two products seem so alike.
"How does that make any sense? It's not the first time they've lost sales due to rumours"
It's not like they do anything to quash the rumours is it, unlike everyone else who releases the odd detail.
They're victims of their own success, there's no sympathy for them.
Value For Money
Samsung usually provides this in spades with other tech, they can't get tablets right tho.
This is overpriced and far too late to the market, it should have been kicked last year as a refresh for the tab 10.1, not now as the Tab2.
Indeed, and if Google get the superior Nexus tablet to the market first there won't be much of a reason to buy a Kindle Fire - unless it's priced very well.
You you do know you can tether the tablet to your mobile phone and use that connection - it's quite easy and just as quick.
It also means you don't need to pay for another mobile contract, you buy one decent one and use it for both tablet and phone.
So the non-3G tablet is not only cheaper to buy, but also obviously cheaper to run.
That would be a corner of Science where we have absolutely no evidence to base any theory's upon making everything just someone's opinion, or more often something they saw on tv or read in a Sci-fi book.
They key word there being 'Fiction'
and I'd hardly call the UI cumbersome either, maybe because it's very much like the playstation - but as soon as I switched the TV on I knew where everything was.
on screen I had options of BBC I player, lovefilm or just normal TV.
They broke the law and sold the Chinese this technology on a promise they would get a lucrative contract out of it.
The Chinese took the tech and gave them the finger on the contract.
They were played like a cheap fiddle, the fine should have been much larger to hammer home the stupidity of the people in control.
The review didn't really get very detailed on it. Sure it can loop video and the reviewer got a couple of days out of it.
but all the android apps it uses require emulation, so there's always extra processes running which must drain more juice than the ARM chips.

List's don't mean much.
