Improbable: YOU gave model Lily Cole £200k for her Impossible.com whimsy-site

No, no. That's the "supermodel". I know what you're going to ask and yes, I cringed a little.

Apple granted patent for two-faced iPhone with wraparound touchscreen

This is a stupid idea!

Until they actually produce something similar and, to our surprise, it sells, then it's a great idea and, like, so totally obvious.

London's King of Clamps shuts down numberplate camera site

BrownishMonstr

...except the current weight of the HGV.

It is possible to calculate the weight assuming the following is known:

  • Model of the HGV
  • Characteristics of the HGV suspension springs, such as spring stiffness, original length with no cargo
  • Calculating the length of the suspension spring is precise and accurate

By calculating the force:

Change in Force = Spring Stiffness x Change in Spring Length.

You can find the mass of the cargo:

Change in Force = Change in Mass x g

Divide Force by g (~10m/s2) you could calculate the mass of what's inside.

Two guilty over 'menacing' tweets to feminist campaigner

Thumb Up

Re: Don't get it.

I was going to say "Quite surprised no has up-voted you yet." but then I checked the post time and it wasn't that long ago.

"Because the individual did something important and isn't a white male" is still, of itself, a form of sexism.

We, as a nation, go in one extreme to balance out our previous equally extreme but opposite position. It is a shame. We are sexist to men just because our nation was sexist to women. We are racist to whites just so non-whites can't shout racism. We can't seem to find a middle ground until it's too late.

It shouldn't matter what gender, race, etc the individual is, or isn't.. Only what the individual has done. Until we can get to that point, our society is still irrecoverably sexist.

Completely agree. We should treat each other fairly, which to a large extent means equally but it's not always the case. But I think our country is also, to an extent, racist as well as sexist. I mean racist to whites. I've never tried it but I'm sure if I, with my ethnic origin being Pakistani, played the race card I'd get much more sympathy even if I was in the wrong. That's not to say people aren't racist to non-whites, but that racism to whites wouldn't be treated equally.

Looks like Google may ask you to PAY for YouTube music - report

Mushroom

Re: And where will all this money go ?

To be fair, with the exception of VEVO, most of the other music videos are from 'fans' with the obligatory 'I DO NOT OWN THIS. COPYRIGHT BELONGS TO X' admission-of-guilt written somewhere near the video.

I suspect it's an opt-in for users like VEVO---or something like that.

BOOM, because, I like b-bombs.

Julie Larson-Green: Yes, MICROSOFT is going to KILL WINDOWS

BrownishMonstr

Name Change?

Sigh, Windows X RT is confusing the average user with Windows X. So they could call it Windows Phone X, but then saying a tablet runs Windows Phone is weird because it can't call. Unless they call it Windows Mobile, for stuff that are mobile, but then that will confuse people with the older phone OS and again, most will think you can call from it. So maybe Windows Go.

Unsupervised Brit kids are meeting STRANGERS from the INTERNET

BrownishMonstr

To be fair, they don't make "dumb" phones like they used to. The ones now are, perhaps, designed more for the ageing society than any other and if you can remember what it was like in school, you wouldn't want a phone that was ugly and uncool.

Terrorism

Obviously the blame lies with the terrorists. If they were clever enough to find alternative ways into the airport, other than the front door, the management would find the entrance a risk. Still, I doubt the Taliban or Al Qaeeda will utilise the chance until it's too late, obviously a stupid bunch of people who like to claim failed attempts.

Re: ISP can chose what they want to supply to customers

1. Looking at porn is not illegal.

Unless you're under 18. Not that that stops them from seeking porn, willingly. They say it is to stop them from watching extreme porno, in which case maybe it's time they should start using the TV License to fund some non-extreme porno and give this to the ones going through puberty, maybe via those SexEd lessons.

Flying in the US? Remember to leave your hand grenades at home

BrownishMonstr

I can't tell if you are trolling or not? Whilst at college, those who studied Law, or something, went America and all brown-skinned men were randomly selected for the security checks. So either skin colour has something to do with profiling, or all middle-eastern looking people look shifty,

...its all about cultures...

Wait, wouldn't that be offensive?

But, of course, you are trolling, right?

Microsoft - do you really think you can take on Google with Nokia?

BrownishMonstr

Re: Finger on the trigger

Regarding Android, the OS doesn't cost money for them to integrate it, but integrating Google Play and other Apps does.

I doubt they'll leave as they might be paying MS for royalty fees to use android and might get a deal on licensing WP.

Sony sets dates for US and Euro PS4 unleashment amid Xbox heckles

BrownishMonstr

Is the price difference due to the PS4 being so bloody ugly? Who the hell designed it to be that depressing? At least the Xbox has a modest look like the rest of the devices sitting under the telly.

Not that I'll buy either, maybe. I want a PS4 just to play Battlefield 4 with a friend, who will no doubt get the new console, and the Mirrors Edge sequel by myself. But I can't justify the price for a console, that doesn't seem to be that much better than its predecessor, just for two games.

2 in 5 top Brit biz bosses expect IT dept to drive 'technical innovation'

BrownishMonstr

UK lags behind.

"56 per cent of business leaders in Blighty believe the UK 'lags behind' China and the US in technology innovation."

Would this be mostly because the UK is much smaller than the two, in terms of businesses, wealth and people.
