"It's GOOD to be BAD!"
Pol beats off police abuse.
Just goes to show that the rich and powerful are not subject to police abuse. The gall of police to try it on pols shows their arrogance.
solution is lateral thinking
I think that people should not be able to issue their own password but be able to receive randomish but memorablish passwords without great entropy to their email address on request. Three password or other failures would cause account lockout until some procedure is followed - possibly as simple as requesting a new password to their email address. This will solve a massive range of problems but introduce other problems which I think might be lessor.
nice and about time!!!
so ironic that a man who could expand his mind to conceive that time was not constant everywhere, had difficulty to believe that things truly happen randomly at the quantum level

You are projecting. Also you are an ankle-biter.
can an inspector tell if it is driven by a human or not after being in a car with a blind between driver and passenger for one hour - or something like that.

Oak can be nobbled by US forcing its citizen NOT to sign the page. I wonder if that could happen.

"Then he can offer himself up for justice for his sex crimes"
seems you are a uk/us gov shill since you willfully ignore the fact he has not committed any sex crimes. Ever heard of INNOCENT UNTIL PROVED GUILT you primitive?
fcuk the law
since uk has adopted european laws we need to adopt european attitudes to the law which is fcuk it instead of respect it.
Re: bilious commentards
Bullshit. Slums in india are VAST. Slums in UAE are non-existent. And emiratiis are no more hypocritical than most of the world. You wanna hate arabs? Pick on any other than the emiratiis esp. Dubai who are golden by comparison with the primitives in the rest of the region. You have no ffing clue.
I think most of the bile here is based on incomprehension, ignorance and fear. For example the prat who has so much to say about the subject but is so clueless as to think the country of Bahrain is one of the states of UAE. If you want real shockery go to the slums in India. Nothing like that exists in UAE. Even Islam is relatively tolerant in UAE. But I guess people will just hate on all Arabs regardless.

Buying them off or compensation for loss of real business basically.
as we know from snowdon, the state engages in social disinformation big time. hence all the helpful shills presenting their "opinion" here

This article is trying to settle down the frogs ... jostling uneasily in the pan as a rather hot bubble wells up.
More a VVM really.
It virtualises the local kernel not the local hardware so it is more a virtual virtual machine. Cant run another OS though.
full marks to subeditor for clickbaiting

Re: I find Apple hardware extremelly good...
ubuntu buggy? - bullshit
Re: Probably the death knell of the "industry"
actually google said something like "java api is industry standard therefore we can use it" ... it appears to be the judge who spun it into "popularity voids copyright". The judge here looks like they have "owner instinct" not "user instinct"
Privacy for the masses including thinkers and whistleblowers is mor important than catching bad guys I think. Police think everything is a nail.
Re: Starting point of graph is deceptive to unscientific brains
True what happened a million years ago is irrelevent. What happened OVER the last million years IS relevent because it shows to the common man that any correlation in the last 100 years is chance. But you are a believer and in denial over the lack of warming in thr last 20 years so you willfully missed my point.
Starting point of graph is deceptive to unscientific brains
Move the starting point of the graph to 1 million year ago and you will see how ludicrous it is to conclude co2 causes warming. Warmists are in denial over the lack of warming in the last 20 years.
Re: atheists are experts at NOT following consensus
@dan ... I dont ignore any evidence at all neither recent nor past ... there is loads of historical evidence about huge climate changes before modern era that cannot be ignored and the changes is massive compared to recent changes which also cannot be ignored. but your smarmy sarcasm is typical warmist bile
Re: atheists are experts at NOT following consensus
"GW = science, belief is irrelevant.GW = science, belief is irrelevant."
the style of most warmists indicates that that they are fervent followers of a cult
Re: The takeaway . . .
"The point is that all these positions, including those around climate change, are the positions held by the majority of scientists in those fields."
arguing that most people believe in something therefore it is correct is circular logic. the same goes for warmism and for evolution. for example ... 100 years ago if you were an atheist going against the trend that nearly everybody believed in god. THINKING atheists are skeptics. FOLLOWING atheists are just credulous believers of another type.
atheists are experts at NOT following consensus
I dont believe in god and I dont believe in warmism ... both crocks of shit ... historical cycles in earth observables dwarf those in the last 50 years.
Re: No news
Buy his way out? Who is he paying? His lawyers? Whaat a sneeaky trick!
could be blackmailing the decision makers ... in this case either the judges or those who control them
surveillance isnt about the average person
please remember that all the domestic spying is only to target whistleblowers or other contrarian influential people of all kinds. what kind of a society we end up with if the historical influence of such people is severely curtailed is anyones guess.

why start at 1970? look deeper. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/60/Five_Myr_Climate_Change.png
fb has a file on everybody
clever joining of data from places you wouldnt believe means they really do have a file per fleshy body and you even if you are not on fb. and fb is just one collator for the nsa and friends. info is power
It isnt climate scientists who claim 99.9% of climate scientists believe in agw ... it is warmist activists -a big difference.

"If you REALLY have something to hide from the NSA et al, you probably shouldn't be doing it in the first place. You DO have a right to privacy, and that should be taken seriously, but you absolutely need to get into perspective what the real threats against you are."
True, the average man has no need of protection against NSA/GCQ but whistlenblowers DO need it. For example we have the apparent suicide of a government employee in UK over leakage of damaging information about our governments involvement in Iraq. OUR SOCIETY DOES NEED PRIVACY!
Re: Global climate "science" isnt science
I think you missed the point.
Re: Global climate "science" isnt science
Actually a lot of astronomy is hypothesis. It has made a lot of predictions which can and have been tested with further observations. Climate "science" predictions from the 1990s on the other hand have completely failed. viz. lack of any global warming over the past decade.
Global climate "science" isnt science
because you cant experiment on it like you can with tadpoles and atoms and god help us if they could. climate science is just observation really.
I think China has vastly more to gain by spying on American corps than vice versa. Much US tech has been developed because of their strong capitalism and legal system. China is a primitive pick pocket by comparison regardless of their economic boom. If and when China starts generating new tech then they will have our true respect.
Re: And Eric Schmidt's climatological background is ... What, exactly?
model != machine and climate scientist != physicist
We analyze the evolution of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming (AGW) in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, examining 11 944 climate abstracts from 1991–2011 matching the topics 'global climate change' or 'global warming'. We find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6% endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3% were uncertain about the cause of global warming. Among abstracts expressing a position on AGW, 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming. In a second phase of this study, we invited authors to rate their own papers. Compared to abstract ratings, a smaller percentage of self-rated papers expressed no position on AGW (35.5%). Among self-rated papers expressing a position on AGW, 97.2% endorsed the consensus.
They are spinning ... lying. The study actually found that 97% (of those who expressed any opinion) had an opinion that humans are to blame for SOME global warming. ***SOME*** COULD BE ANY TINY FRACTION.
asteroids dont spiral down
asteroids like anything else in free fall are satellites that orbit ... and orbits are ellipses not spirals. the only way for something to spiral down would be for it to lose kinetic energy somehow but that doesnt really occur in space.
face saving formulae
a raft of face saving formulae to enable the mass of non-activist scientists to jump the bandwagon in some partially dignified way before it crashes will speed the demise of warmism.
whats next after AGW
AGW will not die out until the next stupidity can be invented and implanted in the masses brains. Be careful what you wish for.
when you hear a dog talk, you dont criticise its grammar
Actually the standard of driving in Dubai compared to the rest of the Arab world is fantastic. Slip out into the other emirates and the standard plummets. Rulers want Dubai to be the Singapore of the Middle East and really have done miracles over the past 3 or 4 decades to civilize the place - partially by using western, often British in older times, consultants in key government positions. Hats off.
