Re: "Google has been ordered"
Eadon I'm all for free speech but as Uncle Ben (the Spiderman version not the rice fella) says with power comes responsibility so how's about you become responsible and stop fecking derailing threads with your anti-MS agenda, its getting boring.
You don't like MS, we got that the 70th time you mentioned it so I think you can leave it alone now.
Beer because its one of those days when a cold one is necessary!
Proper Risk Assessment
An upvote Sir purely for having your tongue so far in your cheek it is practically coming out of your ear.
... you have made an assumption about the original poster Lester so its rank hypocrisy to then criticise someone else for making assumptions about your circumstances.
For what its worth I applaud what you are doing and you're damned if you do and damned if you don't try to highlight these issues.
Brew everywhere... :)
Nothing to say but...

Having had a long and interesting conversation with the Junior Home Office Minister who was running the debacle for Labour at the time I can tell you that not all of the Labour party were on board with the scheme (including the Junior Minister) but most had eventually accepted it based on the time honoured system of 'you let this slide and we'll back something of yours we're not too keen on' next time.
It was also quite an eye-opener as to how ignorant of the issues around ID cards many senior Labour figures were at the time of the policy's introducation. In fact their whole rationale was the old maxim 'if you have nothing to hide what's the problem?'
Where's the 'Any' key?
Ah the old ones are the best..
Re: Kids should NOT be allowed.
You conveniently ignore the fact there are 13/14 year olds who are more rational and competent to make decisions than a lot of El Reg's estemeed commenterati but there are also 20 year olds you would trust with a can opener, especially not in space or on its fringes as the decompression would be a bitch!
Surely a role as US Liaison for LOHAN beckons for Caleb?
And a beer raised in his honour too.
Apropos of nothing why did the company make an FOI request for this information when it is already publicly available on the ICO website (although good luck finding it on the abomination that is their new website)
Missed the obvious gag here...

Re: Jony Ive?
I'd reckon that while Jony isn't on that list for salary he is hardly on his uppers in terms of share options etc. If you actually looked at his total benefits package rather than his salary he won't be far off the top earners in the Orchard.

The main problem as I see it...
... is that the press, particularly the tabloids in their various guises have blurred the distinction between 'in the public interest' and 'interesting to the public'.
Just which no-mark footballer is boffing whichever Z-list reality star may be of interest to some but there is certainly no public interest argument. How exactly does it benefit the public? The simple answer is it doesnt as a general rule (lets be honest there will always be exceptions) and the sooner the tabloids go back to making this distinction the better.
Re: I'm actually all for this
Also I can't remeber for certain but there might have been specific provisions for cloud computing in the new EU Directive.
Don't forget that the current DP directive is thick end of 20 yrs old so isnt fit for purpose any longer given the advances in technology.
Re: I'm actually all for this
The problem for the EU is that DP authority is derogated to the members and it is for the national DP authorities/governments to control.

Re: I think theres a bit more to it than risk free and saves money.
New releases on Virgin Movies on Demand usually become available at the same time as the DVD release and are at most a fiver which is for the HD version.
That delay isn't the fault of the providers (Virgin/Sky etc) it is the studios and distributors who only licence the films for 'release' as PPV when the DVD hits the shelves.
The fact is this model works for me and I suspect a lot of others. I have a small child and limited childcare so mgmt and I dont get to the flicks very often so it works for us. Also a trip to the local multiplex would cost best part of £20 if not more for tickets and munchies whereas I can replicate the experience (without the f**kwit youths in the foyer) for less than a tenner at home albeit with the slight inconvenience of waiting 6 months for the film to be available.
Also is my viewing devalued by waiting to see the film? No! Other than the LoTR trilogy I can't remember the last film I have seen a trailer for and thought 'I MUST GET TO THE CINEMA TO SEE THAT'.
I went to the ICO Data Protection Conference this week and one of the keynote speakers was Francoise Le Bail, DG for Justice at the European Commission and essentially Reding's deputy.
The gist of her talk was that while the original directive was very prescriptive they understood that national governments felt it needed tweaking and were already negotiating with various governments to amend the directive.
The revised version is due out in the next couple of months.
Re: Confessions of a search engine Exec
You've obviously been nowhere near a TV in the last 10 yrs if you think My Little Pony is the biggest TV phenomenon in that time...
- In the Night Garden
- Spongebob Square pants etc etc are all bigger TV phenomena that MLP

Re: Rules 1 to 6 - How not to get crap tea.
I would dispute Rule 1, after 15 years my wife (non-tea or coffee drinker) makes a more than passable brew, albeit with bags.
Lord knows what I'd get if I let her use loose leaf tea!!
Now where did I leave those rich tea?

Doubt he will be cutting Ambulances as he has no remit for the NHS...
As for the fire service LFB is bloated and in dire need of restructuring. Whether BoJo and the Assembly will do it properly is an entirely different kettle of fish.
Re: The NHS and electronic patient records...
Oh I know all that, I used to work for the NHS, I was simply referring to the fact that the last concerted attempt to do what Hunt wants was a collossal clusterf**k!
The NHS and electronic patient records...
What could possibly go wrong?
Has the fiasco that was the NHS Spine totally passed Hunt (I prefer The Today Programme's pronunciation) by?

My favourite was 'Midvale School for the Gifted'.
For those not familiar it depicted a child trying to enter said school by pushing on a door marked pull (or vice versa as my memory isn't what it was)
