I bet I can get far greater bandwidth by UPS Van than most countries can afford.

Nice to know, so. you'll have one of the older Keeloq equipped cars or, prehaps, one of the older still non rolling code RFID chips as immobiliser/remote unlock then?
Both heavily compromised and exceptionally easy to circumvent.
Now, be extremely careful what you leave in your boot.
I'm sorry, your hardware does not meet the minimum requirements to install this malware, please consult the Hardware Compatibility List and upgrade.
If they managed to get a working knock-off then I'm hugely impressed, that's really no small feat but I suspect that what they managed to get going was a laptop/notebook board with separate Radeon compatible GPU board with heavily modded firmware. Again no small feat but slightly less impressive.
Food for a quid a day, that is easy.
*everything*, now that's a lot more difficult and I'll be following this with great interest.
Did I misread it or...
WTF happened to a write protect jumper on the board that ties the /WE or WE line so it cannot be written to?
(Yes, I realise most BIOS are now in some sort of serial flash but even so... )
Catalysts can be 'poisoned' by improper use, malfunction, impurities, reducing or eliminating their effectiveness. Manufacturing costs and security of supply are also important so yes, the cost of a catalyst can be important.
Another problem with precious metal catalysts is that they are attractive to thieves who will realise their value and potentially take advantage.
Says the man who has no clue as to the diversity of systems and benefits controlled by said systems.
It's not that UC is so complex, it's that the current range of benefits and systems are and they don't 'talk' to each other in any kind of sane way, the nasty old legacy systems are tied together using people and paperwork.
Simplifying that sort of rats nest is not an easy job. Simplifying and implementing a replacement on the scale of the UK benefits system is an horrific job.
TA is a wonderful series and I have, as a 40 something year old, enjoyed them immensely. As has my ten year old daughter.
I will shed a tear if I finish the book as I did when I heard the news but I'm mulling over the idea of buying it and keeping it, unread, on a shelf, so there's always one more book
Mains lead, USB plug. Simple.
Bye PTerry, see you on the other side of the desert.
Apple are in the marketing business, they understand the value of something as ridiculous as a $17K product because it generates headlines and column inches.
Like all bullies, trolls and other attention whores, ignore them and eventually they will go away.
Can only speak from my experience with Wintel laptops in the ecosystems I work in, they do get upgraded, more RAM, larger HDDs or even retrofitted with SSDs.
It's not a 'small' ecosystem but is rather narrow so it may be untypical.
Weren't Apple the ones who soldered in an SSD?
'Apple has told The Register it is investigating the pocket bomb allegation.'
Apple talked to El Reg!
TLA's have the ability to infect the firmware on a hard drive, run hugely effective tightly focussed attacks against persons and companies/countries of interest so how are organisations like Gemalto able to say that?
Internet. Kittens. Lasers. Unicorns.
What more expalantion do you need?
'OK, here is my question: Given that God is infinite, and the universe is also infinite, would you like a toasted teacake?'
He refers to a daily cash withdrawal limit via ATM of $1000 from any account which means it doesn't make a jot of difference which or how many ATMs you use but I would posit that anyone with several million in readily available funds in their account could have a much higher limit making both your points void..
I'd vote for anyone who proposed refitting the Houses of Parliament with chairs like the ones in The Simpsons Family Therapy episode.
It'd make BBC Parliament worth watching.
When has that worried any political party, we soon forget the lunacy of the last bunch, the ones who tried to mandate ID cards for every citizen, the ones who introduced RIPA etc.
They're none of them innocent in the continual erosion of our liberties, our rights and expectations.
Not a single one of them.
This election has me terrified, I am in fear of my government, past, present and future because they're clueless fuckwits, lead by the nose by populism, by the spymasters, by anyone who has a loud enough voice and they're scared of not being friends with those people.
What we need are true, honest conviction politicians who aren't afraid to make the hard decisions and not be seen as popular.
What we have are a bunch of career idiots who live or die by the opinion polls and we are to blame, the X-Factor generation who believe that a pretty face and a few nice words are enough.
But they're not limited to simplex by hardware, a quick look at the datasheet for the Nordic chip will tell you it's a transceiver so the only thing stopping key exchange is firmware...
Waste of time, the chances of anything coming from Mars must be a million to one
Because they'd never find a rock big enough to knock the poles in with.
Well of course we will, we need a way to use up all that free energy from the fusion reactor that's due any time now.
I was going to type up a witty and incisive comment about the media spin and management, the tie it in with a comment about how Steve passing has changed everything, again.
But I just can't be bothered.
Apple, be careful, you could have someone's eye out with that dummy...
32.9MPG out of a 362HP supercar.
It's pretty damn good.
Nothing to do with Iceberg lettuce being a great way to clean up contaminated land...
You laugh, and I hope it's not an urban legend now I mention it but I seem to remember a story about a semiconductor fab failing an unusually large number of wafers on the night shift because a security guard was using an oven to bake pizza... Apparently the pizzas were contaminating the wafers.
Quite what the chemicals used to process the wafers were doing to the pizzas I shudder to think.
(yeah, I know)
Quite surprised it's not running OSX though
No need to worry, just wait for the next keynote and the iSculpture 2S
That'd be a Flush drive then?
Pretty sure Trevor Bayliss suggested something very similar in a pop science/documentary around the time his clockwork radio made him famous?
I should probably add, my name is Clint.
They wouldn't let me have C11NTS for some reason...
If an insult falls and nobody understands it is it really an insult?
Apple have probably got a patent on using glue to hold phones together.
As another commenter pointed out, Apple occupy the high end of the market.
The problem with being there is that it's not an unassailable position if you remain static, people will copy your style, they'll make their own quality products to rival yours and they will eventually out innovate you if you don't continue to create new product for new markets.
Unfortunately Apple now seem to be chasing the lower end of the market and cheapening the brand instead of adding more value or creating new. They need a visionary to inspire them, a new Jobs and they've not got one.
I foresee some very tough times ahead.
Umm, so that's 15 Watts? Bloody hell.
Dear lord that's not only ugly, it looks bloody childish too. I could forsake a couple of seconds a week for something that looks nice and wearable.
Stop that, it's silly.
You are Goatse and I claim my five pounds
He can always ask his pre-teen kid what it's all about, apparently they can access everything on their smart phones.
A true model of responsible parenting.
Sounds like they need a lot more health and safety inspectors, here, have ours, all of them, keep them a while...
It was just trying to find its mum...
Agreed, just discovered Nambarrie tea, it's awesome stuff.
Nambarrie Tea. Deliciously strong cuppa.
So you're saying San Francisco would have fewer fat people if the city had more guns?
Makes sense I suppose, all that exercise running away from gun waving right wing lunatics would soon get them in shape.
