Re: What is it with Apple I auctions?
There is a sort of deadline - in the sense that the current high value for these artifacts is very likely to be ephemeral.
They're riding a price bubble that Damien Hirst would be proud of.
Re: MPs: Lying, thieving, corrupt gits who think the rest of us are stupid
they are scum. and this creates a highly dangerous environment, where democracy looks seedy and opens the door to extremism.
why not go back to the time of Socrates and select the government by lottery?
Re: To eternity and beyond...
i just googled "space related deaths" and was informed that, as of 2013, there had been only 13 fatalities. This includes *all* Soviet programs, moon landings, ISS, Space shuttle etc.
Beardie's activities have to date killed four people (this latest accident and 3 in a 2007 explosion).
That doesn't seem quite right, on balance.
Re: human endevour
i get what you are saying, but it's naive to compare deaths caused by a deliberate act, such as 9/11, to deaths caused accidentally.
it's also disrespectful, I think.
there has been sustained criticism, from within the industry, of their use of nitrous oxide based rockets since the explosion in 2007 which killed 3 people.
on the plus side, Justin Bieber is booked on the first flight...
fantastic article. I love dub reggae and have never heard of Rupie Edwards. Life is so unjust. The best are often unacknowledged.
Lived in Dalston (Sandringham Road) in the 90s - can't go there now.

All your cables are belong to U.S.
But might have been more accurate to say Silk Road was like eBay, rather than Walmart.
Very interesting read though.
those copies of the 'Daily Mail' are not for reading...
Re: I'm not worried
Applying the Bekenstein Bound equations to the human brain, you get a maximum information content of approximately 2.6 x 10 power 42 bits.
This represents the ammount of information necessary to emulate a human brain down to the quantum level.
Not possible in 2014 but inevitable at some point in the future and maybe not too many years away.
AH, THE PARADOX THAT IS THE U.S.A.
Founded with righteous principles of freedom paramount. Now creeping towards totalitarian status and yet still the birthplace of TOR and printed handguns and Silk Road Market. I love it and hate it in equal measures.
Re: off topic, & i apologise in advance
thanks. I get why it wouldn't work now.
off topic, & i apologise in advance
I want to decloak a tor hidden service.
if I have the ability to scan the entire intenet, won't I eventually discover the IP of a machine that serves the hidden service I'm looking for?
it's about time the emperor, I mean fanbois, learnt they are not actually wearing anything at all
Re: SOMEONE PLEASE REBOOT REALITY
Not to mention that utter cunt, George Osbourne, ripping off, with no discernable sense of irony, dialogue from "Trainspotting". What a fucking cunt.
SOMEONE PLEASE REBOOT REALITY
As if box-ticking bullshit like this is not enough, free speech itself is under attack (see Theresa May's speech today).
I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more.
totally agree. there is no good reason not to use FLAC. unless you are forbidden by the likes of Apple.
This article is more of a call to choose operating systems that do not lock us into proprietary file protocols.
Re: And all completely irrelevant to us right-pondians...
nice try. as far as they are concerned you are obstructing access. even if you genuinely forgot the passphrase, you're looking at some serious bird. basically, you let them in or go to jail. simples.
I'M NOT BEING FUNNY BUT...
what the fuck is the point of minecraft?
seriously, please can someone explain?

apparently the iPhone 6 plus has an undocumented feature - a flexible screen (and a flexible body). quality.

How, Mr. Pie, do you reconcile the paradox of Apple producing the most beautiful object in the universe without the almighty Steve running the show?
Re: So.... any revenue and profit numbers?
man, you are so right. the markets are hyper-pumped on surreal QE wierdness. BUT there's a HUMUNGOUS correction in the post.

Branch and Unplanned Snagging Heuristic
Hats off to Fenke et al.
Top patchery and looking forward to seeing it hewn from the living cloth.
tor will be around long after Putin has been consigned to the dust-bin of history.
off topic, but does anyone else find the new iPhone ad (crayons are dangerous) particularly nauseating?
Re: top tip
"Dent in MacBook inversely proportional to dent in Wallet"
apple owners, rather than risking lethal software updates, just buy new kit every few months.
oh, i forgot, you already do that.
LOHAN is starting to take on grown-up dimensions and excitement levels are rising fast!
Re: Police declined to explain how they "snared" the suspects
they claim to be monitoring and interdicting people using tor. I don't buy that. tor is still pretty much opaque to law enforcement.
and whilst I'm glad they've busted a load of perverts, I'm also glad there are parts of the internet that are truly free.
Re: The advert
could not agree more. unfortunately today's breed of corporate marketing drone will never risk anything remotely creative. it's incredibly frustrating for ad agencies and incredibly boring for viewers.
and how banana republics start.
"the higher, the better."
fair point. market share is not everything.
i still think the herds are growing bored of apple's shiny offerings though.

Re: smashing idea, but...
when you arrive deactivate the system and let your dog patrol the garden then re-arm it just before leaving.
might need a larger dog, however.
according to zerohedge it was venture capitalist Tim Draper.
even some news websites "borrow" uncredited thumbnail images for the top stories ;)
Re: Compensate the victims
i think they mean victims of crime in general.
btw, they still have an additional 140K BTC that belonged to dread pirate roberts and which are not yet being auctioned off.
Re: Doing it wrong.
of course they're doing it wrong - the federal government never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity.
Re: Sowing confusion
well said. another example, closer to the source of this story, is the web of lies built around uri geller. lies that certain powers found quite useful, and certainly encouraged.
Re: Russia stop-over
precisely. he is in Russia through necessity, not choice. important to bear that in mind.
