BT = Bloated Trolls
The implementation method should be patentable, but not the concept.
The current patent system would theoretically allow the Wright brothers would be able to sue NASA.
I seriously doubt the gamers would have used 600 different phones so data analysis for multiple calls from a phone number would have flagged up gaming before it became a cultural habit.
..cos Britain is off the research list.
My biggest chuckle today. Cheers !!!
Phage research is currently active. Nothing old there.
There are a lot of people on this thread who do not have a clue what they're talking about.
I have seen a single 6 mm nut take out a gas turbine engine.
All it takes is one blade impact and you get a cascade back through the remaining 6 to 20 compressor & turbine disks each willing to contribute further broken blades.To make things worse, modern ceramic blades are more brittle than stainless or inconel blades.
I, for one, certainly do not want to play russian roulette with sudden power drops.
The director Mr Harri Mattias Jonasson lives in Sweden.
Maybe they might agree to a swap for Assange ?
THE CROOK IS IN SWEDEN.
SWAP HIM FOR ASSANGE
"the Accenture-built system couldn't handle names with apostrophes (O'Dwyer for example)."
Not able to handle apostrophes in 2012 ?
What amateur wrote that database?
"The taste for the hidden has not played an accidental role in the distortion of practical democracy."
What a remarkable and true statement. I had to re-read it multiple times to savor it.
Very true when it comes to Irish politics. e.g. Irish Water :), or for evolution in US politics when it comes to how convenient interpretations of the constitution are being enforced....and hidden.
A Return-To-Home function kicks in when the drone loses the controller signal.
That should be achievable by jamming the controller frequency and effectively creating a clear zone around the fire. It does not take much to confuse the interpretation of control packets regardless of encryption. Emergency services operate on different restricted frequencies. No silly nets or free-for-all gunfire.
Drones without a return-to-home function should be made illegal.
I think the biggest problem is the states, is control of how the laws are "interpreted".
There seems to be a trend now in the US, Australia and the UK for deliberately vague laws that allow unforeseen wide scope due to convenient interpretation.
Overclocking DOES reduce the lifetime of a processor.
One of the causes of transistor failure in a processor is due to electromigration within the junctions. This is a function of voltage. The design lifetime is modelled for a specific voltage range.
Increasing that voltage, e.g. in overclocking, results in a shorter lifetime. QED.
I'm not sure about the impact of higher frequencies but I can certainly surmise that there is a non-zero negative effect on capacitor stresses and inductive effects.
Removing the facilities-based provisions is similar to Local Loop Unbundling; a good thing indeed.
it is common in Europe but not so common in the US because of monopolies (!).
It will introduce more flexibility in packages and specific savings as these smaller providers pursue niche markets.
However, those changes will also need controls on the charges imposed by the facilities-provider.
Extrapolation from a regression curve is suicidal and mathematically naiive.
That is an INCORRECT statement based on false assumptions.
Global oil reserve/demand reached tipping point in 2005.In the long t erm oil prices WILL go up.
Yes we should have diversity in other energy sources including nuclear but barring a disruptive technology breakthrough in fusion, the financial models of solar/wind/wave are going to get ever stronger.
NOTE: the travesty of subsidy -driven corn alcohol production should not overshadow alternative energy technologies.
Fracking is a self-limiting resource and is just a temporary disruption to the current model of speculation and supply/demand economics.
REASONING: The world passed the reserve/demand tipping point in 2005.
Production at oil fields around the world is declining between 4.5 percent and 6.7 percent per year.
Production at shale gas wells can drop 60 to 90 percent in the first year of operation.
The current spate of supply from fracking will quickly hit diminishing returns as the shallower reserves are depleted and extraction from deeper strata becomes more capital intensive.
In a nutshell it's like a fire sale of the family crockery when the family silver is already sold.
The Android API fulfils the same functionality as the Java API without using the same code.
My impression was that copyright should be the details of the implementation, not the generic idea, specifically referring back to the Phoenix BIOS "clean" vs "dirty" teams.
This reminds me so much of the Iraqi Minister of Propaganda spouting lies about "driving the Americans back across the border" whilst the yanks were kicking ass in the background.
Future truths rule !! and Black is white indeed :)
IT services were outsourced to India.
I have one word to rubbish your claim - GINGERS !!!!!
I am getting megalomaniac hints of 2000 AD here:
I AM THE LAW !!!!
Keep up to date !!!
A US court has given yanks the right to pillage data anywhere in the world :)
That's what happens when the marketing & PM types make it to the top without a counter-balance of technically trained/experienced executives........all clapping each other on the back and using accounting stunts to massage dividends.
Innovation my ass, more like ennervation.
I so rarely get to use that word :)
White, nerfed and no SD card..........sounds like an iPhone to me !!!!!
Patent Trolls violate the original spirit of patents.
(1) Non-practicing entities should lose the right to enforce a patent; USE IT OR LOSE IT !!!
(obviously with the exception of the original inventor).
(2) Similar to hardware patents, software patents should only cover the method, not the result.
(if software patent logic was applied to the Wright Brother's airplane, the trolls would be able to sue Boeing for their 747).
Better to compare the USA to Canada and don't allow subjectivity to cloud the issue by comparing the USA to dissimilar European or Asian cultures.
A lot of the USA/Canada factors are broadly similar including gun ownership ratio,
However the gun murder rates are very different.
Conclusion: It's culture not gun ratio that is the issue.
I thought "liquify" was quite witty since I wouldn't class this as a normal windup with concrete assets.
Take away the noise and it's just another pyramid scheme...suckers !!!!!
"kobayashi is the lawyer?" would have been quite sufficient !!!!
A thorough HAZOP analysis would have identified this as an issue at the design stage and it would have been added to a pre-flight check list.
At least, that's what engineering professionals do in the pharmaceutical, automotive, manufacturing, building design, medical design and, God forbid, aircraft design.
What happened here ????,
The troll's should only get compensation if they originated the patent or are actually producing goods via that patent.
That keeps innovation rolling.
I can understand that it is inaccurate to extrapolate from only a few years data.
However, in the longer term, climate warming DOES lead to an increase in the frequency and intensity of storms.
That is basic thermodynamics e.g. the Arrehenius equation.
Also, ironically, the term "debug" originated in the context of aircraft engines.
"The related term "debug" also appears to predate its usage in computing: the Oxford English Dictionary's etymology of the word contains an attestation from 1945, in the context of aircraft engines
...except that they're smart enough to establish plausible deniability i.e proxy reviewers.
Put some critique about login bypasses in the Apple wiki and see how long it survives :)
GPS spoofing of marine vessels was demonstrated last year.
It is just a brute force attempt to smother ARM based equipment.
I wouldn't touch this item with a 10 foot pole.
You didn't put it simply. You just wanked off your own ego and didn't clarify squat..
I didn't bother reading the paper, but did I get the impression that the researcher just wanted to add two more sets of parity bits to increase the probability of complete recovery?
A Patent originally existed to protect the revenue stream of the inventor / licensee / manufacturer.
IDEALLY it should lapse if it goes out of production, unless the company can prove that they have used OR genuinely plan to use it in future products.
If ghoulish is Iain's theme, then he should get a pacemaker installed.
Classifying internet comms as standardized telecoms is the start of the slippery slope to bypass net neutrality.
To me this is just marketing BS.
What's the use of a 2.5" for a non mobile device. There is a MTBF penalty for the higher areal density.
Who needs 12 simultaneous video streams at home and do you really believe it will be stutter free sharing 100MB/sec ?
That 1MB cache looks wrong. It should be 16MB.
I used 3.5" Samsung Spinpoint 1TB, 5400 rpm drives years ago. Silent, cold and lower failure rate that the equivalent 2.5".
My 82 year old parents now know the difference between Phishing and Phreaking and have already hung up on one of these chancers..
Then it would be an Apple product.
Is there any way to remotely access the phone when it goes online, similar to the Computrace function on some laptops ?
Having a reputation for being able to kill stolen phones would surely reduce their attraction to the "second-hand goods" market.
<<<<That's actually extremely straightforward. The expansion is a feature of the metric on cosmological scales, which we're taking to be Robertson-Walker - that is, expanding sheets of flat (or spherical, or hyperboloidal) 3-space. >>>>
I take that to mean that the space-time grid stretches less within galaxies because their internal gravitational attraction between "stars" resists the stretching ?
