Re: I'm unclear
@Omgwtfbbqtime - You're welcome to the Liver but I should make you aware that it is only available on an 'As Is, Where Is' basis and that, as I am not a doctor, I cannot guarantee that it is operational or that the mileage indicated is an accurate reading..........
Are we saying that the time has come to crack open eachother's skulls and feast on the goo inside or not ?
I could do with an answer fairly soon as I have a hair appointment tomorrow and would rather not waste my time if it's all going to be ruined by skull cracking.

Re: tax avoidance may be the legal kind but
Who decides on what constitutes 'fair and honest' ?
The government (why not make it a legal requirement) ?
The public (who on the public) ?
The newspapers ?
All these recent cases of tax avoision should be laid squarely at the door of the legislators who have failed to make adequate legislation, not at the door of the companies who do exactly what they are supposed to do - maximise their profits.
Re: a very smart team of political operatives
What happens to the old one ?
When we get the new 'Ampere' defined, what happens to the old one ?
Does it get a nice retrement home ?
Do we then refer to it as 'GrAmpere' ?

Wait - people go on here from home ? Really ? Wow.
Re: Be secure - Use non-Windows.
From the article:
"Browsers execute a script from a malicious server when folks visit the affected site, the DoL's Site Exposure Matrices microsite. The infected script collects information including Flash versions, PDF plugins and MS Office versions from users' systems. Captured data is then uploaded to the hackers' server, AlienVault discovered.
The malware also checks if the target's system is running antivirus programs like McAfee, AVG or Sophos. If it detects the popular Bitdefender free anti-virus program, the malware will try to deactivate the AV suite."
Where in there does it make reference to this only affecting windows devices ?
OK, chances are that most visitors will be running windows in some form, but surely that's because windows is much better than that *Nix garbage ?

We need to stop trying to remove all distractions form cars and start removing people from cars who can't demonstrate the ability to drive safely despite all the available distractions being present.

Has anyone seen Eadon ?
Seriously, I'm getting a bit worried now, is it time to start sending out search parties ?

What are the efficiency losses for a battery system, though (I have no idea) ?
Would the flywheel provide better performance in terms of the conversion loss for the power going into / out of storage ?
Platform Lock In....
.....is only really relevant if you have paid money for apps from the store.
I suspect that at least half of users (like me) only ever use free apps which can be downloaded again for free from whatever other app store a new 'phone supports, so you are not really affected by any kind of lock in. I suspect this even applies for people who have cheaply paid for apps (I would not be particularly bothered about spending a few quid re-downloading a good app again for a different OS every couple of years). It's just not a big enough cash loss to be a major factor in choosing a new 'phone.
Now that most of the major OS's support most of the 'essential' apps that most people want, the platform difference is just not a relevant factor any more (who cares if one app store has 2,000,000 apps and the other only has 10,000 as long as both have the 10 or so you actually want ?)

You need to start setting your alarm a bit earlier to keep up with the competition.
Just think, if Thatcher had never existed we would all be millionaires.
Admittedly that would be because we would have had 25% inflation for the last 30 years though......
Re: migrating or copying emails?
As in my other post above - the e-mails that are being re-downloaded are not ones where the user has set the POP client to leave them on the server after download - they are ones that have been supposedly downloaded and deleted but which were actually moved to an 'All Mail' folder instead of deleting them and which have then been re-downloaded after the transfer to yahoo (but ironically are not visible at all on the yahoo web client interface).
This 'All Mail' folder in google mail is not specifically hidden but is not at all obvious unless you go looking for it on the web access interface for the google mail client (so people who always access via a POP client will never even suspect it exists, whether they have set the client to delete from the server on download or not).
Not actually the case. I use Sky e-mail via POP (why ? because their IMAP service sucked arse also but that's for another day) and had the e-mails set to be left if they were checked by one of the mobile devices (phones etc) but deleted when my main PC downloaded them.
Google, however, decided that what I meant by 'delete' was actually 'move to another folder called 'All Mail' which you can only actually find by searching through sub-menus and contains every e-mail you ever received or sent from this account and then keep them for slightly longer than the human race is expected to exist'.
It is this normally unseen folder that is being re-downloaded when the changeover happens - so the normal user checking their google account online would see an empty inbox just before the transfer then get everything ever (including, amusingly, shit that google had filtered out as spam without even letting your POP client see it at all) downloading to their POP client but still not visible on the new Yahoo account online.
So overall, a really well executed plan......
Buff Stewie, that's why.
"The team is now looking for guinea pigs to test the system"
I'm not sure that many guinea pigs have 'phones......
My chinchilla Jeff might be interested, though. I'll ask him when I get home (although he does have a record of attempting to consume consumer electronics).

Re: CYOD over BYOD
Exactly, it's like a company car scheme. The employee gets a widget / car they would not otherwise be able to afford and the company still essentially spends the same as they would have anyway on widgetry / transport.
So financially for the company it's no different but for the employee it's an attactive bonus to continued loyalty to the company (i.e. if you leave the job, your phone / car goes too).
OK, this is our last chance.
We must now all unite in our dream of bringing back topless darts.
Elephant in the room....
The fact that there were 50,000 bone fragments from 63 bodies suggests to me that there is a very obvious conclusion that seems to have been missed:
Stonehenge was where prehistoric britons used to go to explode.
I've never understood the point of Bristol either.
Re: Money to burn
If we are basing how much government investment sould go into an industry on it's contribution to technology then how about :
High speed internet - porn industry.
Good video compression - porn industry.
3D video - porn industry.
Mass storage - porn industry.
Re: The customer defines value
Absolutely. The truth is that in the modern world, an album or movie is simply not worth £10-20 a pop. The market needs to adjust to this reality and come to terms with it. Being a sucessful rock star or movie producer does not mean you should automatically be a millionaire (although as with most other similar industries, being an unsucessful one does mean you should be dirt poor).
Yes, more freetards go down the free / illegal route because it's consequence free but I suspect that it would be significanlty reduced by having a service that only costs ~£10 a month and gave you access to everything you wanted.
It needs to be easy, convenient and cheap otherwise the legal paid model will never outcompete the illegal one.
That's not how I read.....
It might be just me, but when I read something off the screen (whether it be 'phone or monitor) I tend to keep my eyes pretty much on the center of the screen and scroll the text past them as I read, my eyes only tend to go to the bottom of the page when it has reached the bottom of it's scroll range, so I'm not sure how this would work out.....
