Dunno if I would want to go near it.....I saw that episode of Dr Who.
when working at a largish Engineering company (with offices in NZ, Aus, UK and Canada) and student in the head office read a (hoax) news item about a virus.
So he painstakingly went through and sent an email to all staff (all 1000+ of them, he didn't use the mailing lists) warning them of said virus. After the 3rd or 4th reply all to tell him it was a hoax the mail servers crapped themselves and our mail went bye bye for the rest of the day.
Surely the simplest option is for the guards to blow the thing out the sky with a punt gun?
Google won't let you create an account for an under 13 year old (which sucks as a parent trying to implement parental controls on the kids computer...it only take about 3 clicks to get to the weird part of Youtube. Microsoft does a better job in this space).
So if they did do multi-account in it, would it be able to respond to kids?
Shortly after the crash that killed the chap, I was having a conversation with an older gentleman, and he quite logically said, "if it's an autopilot, why would I bother to have my hands on the steering wheel and pay attention to the road, an autopilot is meant to handle all that"
And that's the point, calling it Autopilot means that people expect it to behave as an autopilot (regardless of what the manual says).
Because if Netflix don't abide by the regional content streaming rights them the content owners will take the rights away which means no content.
It's annoying and I don't like it but it's not Netflix who should be blamed.
I always enjoyed reading his articles and his wit.
He will be missed. *raises glass in remembrance*
My condolences to his friends and family
about a marketing chap deleted all his work because the confirm and cancel buttons were so close together......
If I'm going to do interval training using a heart rate monitor, I'm not going to be relying on my fitbit (charge HR), I'm going to be wearing a proper heart rate monitor (I need to replace my polar one but I'm not doing mtb racing at the moment so can't justify the cost)
The AC/DC concert in Auckland last year was picked up on the seismographs.
I encountered a tech site about a fortnight ago, it possibly had a solution for a problem I was trying to solve. It picked up I had adblock, and with no warning asking me to disable adblock banned our IP (so no one else at work could access the site without getting the same banned because you have adblock message)
This is the site: http://wsdlbrowser.com/
And their banned message http://wsdlbrowser.com/banned-by-adblock
looking at a hi re copy, you are correct, it looks pretty munted

That's why I stopped using it. It would generate a thumbnail cache of all your dropbox photos That you could not clear or move to the SD card which in my case would result in a 1.5GB cache.
As the article says:
"The German operator's T-Systems subsidiary will handle the data trustee functions, managing all access to customer data in the Microsoft data centres. “Microsoft will not be able to access this data without the permission of customers or the data trustee, and if permission is granted by the data trustee, will only do so under its supervision”, the announcement states.
Since Microsoft won't be in charge of the data, even an unfavourable decision in its US court case (in which the Feds want access to e-mails stored in Ireland) won't expose German customer data to American courts or law enforcement."
Now personally I don't like Apple *hrrawk ptui* very much (I don't own any of their hardware and refuse to even consider buying some)
But given they had their biggest launch (13 million units in 3 days) I don't think we can call it a legacy device.
(even though I will possibly rejoice when the kids stop buying them)
"Rather than uninstalling the Xora app Myrna should have simply turned the iPhone off. Work phone = work hours."
From what I can see she was required to be on call 24/7, so turning it off wasn't an option.
(that's in the legal filing the Arstechnica article links to)
Here I was hoping they would sign with NetFlix as NZ finally has NetFlix....now I'm going to have to jump through a number of different hoops to get an Amazon Prime account sorted
(yeah, I know not that difficult, but I'm lazy)
I understand the feds have evidence of him and his team actively making sure that any content on Youtube was to be ripped off and made available on the mega networks.
the summary of their evidence is available here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/192754949/Mega-Evidence
because the manufacturers perceive those who would want the dual sims to be poorer folk. The presume that anyone else would obviously buy two phones.
Which I know is daft, but that would appear to be their thinking.
So that rules out using it with any mountain biking in forests.
if something like this becomes a standard on cars (I doubt it)
How long before the car manufacturers decide it should display advertising if your car is stationary with the engine running? Or if it detects a car is following behind you etc.
Audi experimenting with AMOLED displays for the tail lights a while back......looked way better than this.
"Your figures presume zero capacity left in the batteries of cars that use the facility."
If the batteries have any charge left in them, it would probably be a good idea for the facility to do a discharge first as batteries still don't like constantly being charged from partly empty. Which means your cycling will probably take longer for a battery that isn't completely discharged.
surely they're taking the piss?
alright I'll get me coat and be on my way.
"Fingerprint reader anyone..."
The HP iPAQ H5450 had that back in 2002......
Yes some of us still listen to that.
I see the HTC One M8 has a FM Radio, so that might have just made my decision for me. (a small thing I know, but do use the FM Radio on my S3 a fair bit)
People estimating dollar values have a nasty habit of assuming if you didn't buy their product you would have bought mine.
The problem is I could have just as easily bought someone-elses product.
For example I am one of the few weird people who was happy with my WinMo2003SE to WinMo 6.1 phones....I only moved to Android after the WinPho7 cock-up....for me Apple was never an option worth considering.
The fact that I went with a Samsung Galaxy S was because it was better than the offerings that Sony Ericsson and HTC had at the time, likewise with my S3.
And now when my contract is coming up for renewal again, I'm looking to decide if I want the HTCOne, the S5 or if I'm willing put up with WinPho8 for one of those awesome cameras the Nokia engineers managed to squeeze into the Lumia 1020.
Although I do think it would be nice if he could also pay the people he owes money to before we put on the plane out of here.
I wonder what the flag for the Internet Party is going to be? That red and black one he has stashed away in his basement that Whale Oil mentioned?
It wasn't a bad app, and infact still works just fine on my old iPaq 3630 when I fire it up. That's what originally got me sold on the idea that eBooks were definitely going to largely replace hardcopy books.
In my admittedly limited understanding of bitcoins each bitcoin is unique (which is why mining them is taking more and more computational power).
How are fractions of bitcoins then managed?
Brilliant Simon. Have a pint on me.
or this one from Oakley?
I tried logging in to one of our clients this morning on IE11.....had to switch it to compatibility view (after I found the damn button) to get the site to render anything.
who didn't see that one coming.
The Trojan horse has done his work.
I will stick to to Kingsoft Office.
thanks for that. that was one of my issues with the update.
I recall a BOFH episode where they did something similiar.....
*has a look at his 3 year old Logitech headset*
Hmmmm, I see two very similar ones on there. the mute button even has a circle around it.
No, the Romans probably did record the Hatepe Eruption of Taupo in 186AD
"The Taupo eruption was at one time dated to approximately 130 AD based on 14C from carbonized vegetation enclosed in the eruption products. However, the 22 selected samples used to obtain an average date of 1,819 ± 17 years BP (131) had much larger standard deviations than the average date itself. Most if not all geologists now accept that the tephra or pumice fall from the eruption was far greater than previously thought, approximately 150 km3 (36 cu mi) instead of 14 km3 (3.4 cu mi). This means the event would have been visible from China and Rome. It was therefore posited by Wilson et al. (and is now generally accepted) that the meteorological phenomena described by Fan Ye in China and by Herodian in Rome were due to this eruption, which therefore can be dated exactly to 186 AD. However, recent radiocarbon dating by R. Sparks has put the date at 233 AD ± 13 (95% confidence)."
Meh, we took the kids down to Whakapapa Ski Field (on Raupehu) this winter a week after Tongariro erupted earlier this year. Apart from a bit of ash on the one road, and signs saying "no stopping due to volcanic activity" it was fine.
Of course the folk out Nelson way dealing with heavier ash raining down on their gardens didn't agree.
But that eruption was a small short one.
Jucy Rentals? Wicked Campers?
They're pretty cheap.
no more like they got pissed off with Hamas firing hundreds of rockets at their civilians in the past couple of weeks.
1.) Israel got out of Gaza in 2005....who was the US President then? oh right Bush.
2.) Ahmed Jabari got what he damn well deserved
3.) it's simple, you want Israel to stop attacking you? Stop attacking their civilians.
In Sderot civilians have 15 seconds from the IDF radar picking up Hamas rockets and sounding a warning before the rockets hit. In the week befor eIsreal took out Jabari they had fired over a hundred into Sderot.
I got myself glasses with an older pair of these frames about 6 years back for that very reason: http://www.parasite-eyewear.com/en/collection/optical/led-vision/scion-2/SCI289.html
They're light, comfortable and most importantly as the nothing sitting between your ear and your head you can wear big headsets.
Of course mine are getting old now and I can't afford to replace the damn things.
Didn't affect us on the otherside of the Firth either.
Curran is probably just wanting to distract the MMS from the coup going on at the Labour Conference this week,
According to this article, yes.
" Soon after he placed the order he said he received an email saying some of the goods had been shipped, and then other emails to confirm the order had been processed and his credit card charged.
'Two or three days later they came back and said the order's been cancelled because there was a problem with the price.'
They told him they would honour the part of the order they had already shipped, but later managed to intercept the courier package. "
And this is the reason I, the rare happy Windows Mobile user, jumped ship to Android.
My Windows Pocket PC 2003 SE iPAQ hw6500 phone can do that.
My Windows Mobile 5.0 HTC Touch HD can do that.
sure they've added a lot of nifty new features, but on some core features they generally seen to have gone a step backwards.
scroll down on the apple.co.uk page. Apple have made it so you can't see the text unless you scroll down.
using the basic idea, with bluetooth dongles to provide better granularity through the building
My Acer Iconia A500 has a full size USB port on the tablet. Chuck a Logitech Unifying receiver into it and you can use a mouse and a keyboard at the same time.
do you insist on quoting Florian Mueller?
His opinion's on Android are worthless.
