Couldn't all the powerall's in the local neighbourhood be shared via a local microgrid to help normalise out any sudden peaky demand from a house?
correlation does not imply causation
weirdly enough they planned to do this in the 1930s
For a solely desktop user what is the advantage (other than longer support time) of upgrading to 8 from 7?
Server 2008-> 2012 yes, lots of benefit - but how is 7-> 8.1 going to improve my computing experience?
Is this in any way related to the delays in rolling out high-speed broadband across the UK???
Perhaps they think this will mean we can all go back to using 56k modems...
...sue her for my "pain and suffering" caused by reading about her stupidity?
the blackcurrant tango ad from a few years ago.
...Accept No Substitutes!
er..... rather than looking at your Windows phone can't you just look out of a "window" for that?
... it buying Facebook shares?
oh and Classic shell
for those of us who believes GUI's peaked at windows 2000

I'm originally from the channel islands and have many friends who work in industries based on LVCR.
Yes it is a loophole but the main problem is that they are ONLY applying this restriction to the channel islands - almost borderline racism and also quite stupid -> the companies will just move their operations to other countries e.g. Hong Kong or Switzerland and continue to exploit the loophole but now from places that DON'T put buy from UK suppliers - don't forget 95% of the islands' internally consumed imports come from the UK - i imagine it is the other way round with Hong Kong!
oh dear.... oh dear....
I'm using this nice piece of freeware
to make my win7 box look like win2k so I can actually get work done efficiently - let's hope they can create something similar for win8
Our new carriers are supposed to come in at £7b for the the pair (and may rise) - $6.2b = £3.9b, so why the hell didn't we just buy a pair of far more capable (toilet aside) Nimitzes?!
8 hour batter life, runs windows 7, fits in your pocket reasonably well
I reading this page on one now
"Windows 8 will retain the - optional - ability to perform a full cold boot, loading and initialising the drivers and services from storage."
What's the odds that Windows Update will require a cold boot after every time it runs?
surely that means you have far more chance of running up against an enemy with identical planes!
which even Wikipedia lists as " widely regarded as a hoax" - oh look, what are those pretty black helicopters doing outside? Aaaaargh.....
Why are their faces blurred out? Are they secretly claiming disability benefit or something?!
didn't holding back on the upgrade from Polaris to Trident costs huge amount of money in the end because the Yanks had moved on and they had to reopen all plants and assembly lines to support Polaris for us?? would be silly to make the same mistake twice
whatever you're spending on hardware/software you generally need to spend 10-100x more on marketing to make it a success.
It's VERY difficult for small sites using shared hosting pass all the PCI tests which means they often have to plump for pricey (and OTT) dedicated servers...
... the Viliv n5 - see http://www.dynamism.com/notebooks/viliv-n5.shtml
a windows pc you CAN fit in your pocket (if they ever launch it...)
Isn't the symbol of Britain supposed to be a Lion? So why not a that?!!? It lends itself well to merchandising etc. Or is the real problem that you can't trademark a lion...
for a story about siphoning??
Slow day at work guys?
.... all the major terrorist masterminds reveal their plans on Twitter beforehand - can't wait to see the next James Bond... "The Spy with My Face(book)"?
IE6 is better than IE5 ;-)
none of his arguments against Flash would seem to apply to Java... which is ALSO banned, surely they're just worried about revenue loss from apps running on Flash/Java so bypassing their app store?
er..... there are 24 hours in a DAY -> 44miles*24 = 1056milers per day -> 23ish days of flying
2 points always interest me about FOSS though...
1. what percentage of programmers contributing in their spare time have full time paid jobs in firms selling proprietary/closed software? i.e. if all software became FOSS tomorrow would the economic model be self-sustaining?
2. there now seems to be a large degree of awareness in the business community about "free software" HOWEVER this has the trickle down effect that they then translate this to mean support and other professional time based fee should be on a lower rate than for traditional systems! i.e. the rather illogical "this software is free, why are you charging me to put it on my computer argument?"
... b'stards. That is all.
simply ship him to Iraq and place him in the middle of a mine field with one of his "detectors" and place his big pile of money on the perimeter...
... how people say we defeated communism - and yet almost half the world still live under such a regime!
the launch delay is due to their printer breaking down as they try and print "iSlate" labels to stick over all those Newtons they have left in the warehouse??
You do know that Viz cartoon must be 15 years old now!
the UK should reduce the rate of corporation tax to be just below that of Eire - companies flock to UK, tax income actually increases overall, unemployment drops, problem solved.
isn't a fact that a large proportion of people in the US who have bought one of the cheaper netbooks with Linux on have subsequently returned them as they didn't realise they can't run their windows software??
In which case what will happen when they try and run ANYTHING other than the web browser on this new Chrome OS?????
all well and good.... but following the link are you telling me I was constantly extracting the fiddly aeriel on my Motorola in the early 90's all those times FOR NO REASON WHATSOVER??!!
bye bye MySQL :-(
Class action potential?
is that really a necessary feature on a jet-powered go-kart?
oh and keep it away from the producers of Top Gear, lest they get another great idea....
