So gastronauts in both senses then?
Would have been really nice to know if any of these do iSCSI and whether they have apps for backing themselves up to cloud storage services.
Presumably so a future firmware update will enable the vehicle to auto-pilot.
Almost all broadband connections in the UK could support VoIP calls provided there was end-to-end QoS and presumably there would be more bandwidth available for IP if the copper didn't have to support traditional voice calls anyway.
If BT/Openreach can remove the need for twice the amount of equipment as is really necessary, surely that would make maintaining the network easier to and therefore more reliable?
Well someone had to :p
Nice to know you're listening though d_(*J*)_b
Thing is, Windows 10 is not only for PCs. The device market has flourished and therefore PC sales are diluted, stands to reason. I'm looking forward to Xbox and PC sharing an OS, would love a Surface and am quite tempted to get a Windows phone. So there's four potential 'sales'.
Whether my fridge will ever join that collection is at the moment a mystery, but a router with Windows 10 IoT might be quite interesting.
Reading through this thread makes me suspect people with iPhones often don't have a sense of humour.
As far as I am aware, DrayTEK routers appear to be immune to most if not all of the recent router pwnage flaws I've seen.
Interested in your experience with the Alpha, as I have 3 S2's. Do you love the Alpha too? :)
BT's plans would be put at risk? Perhaps that's a good thing.
Erm, GoDaddy are doing SSL certs for £3.99
"Apple and Google don't have coercive power. District attorneys do, the FBI does, the NSA does, and to me it's very simple to draw a privacy balance when it comes to law enforcement and privacy: just follow the damn Constitution. And because the NSA didn't do that and other law enforcement agencies didn't do that, you're seeing a vast public reaction to this."
A politician said this? I like this guy.
Wave 1 - OEMs and Retailers and the £300 laptop buying general public gawd blessum
Wave 2 - Service Pack 1, enterprise churn on a 'thoroughly tested' deployment
Wave 3 - Service Pack 2, anyone who understands Microsoft release strategy
Maybe 10 is 8.1 Service Pack 1, so we won't have long to wait for Service Pack 2, although I hear Service Packs don't exist any more, but patches will be delivered in waves!
Do these make sense with Economy 7 doing the charging?
I wonder what's in Musk's battery tomorrow?
'MS-DOS was lacking other features, too, that many would now consider unforgivable. After typing out an incredibly long command and realising there was an extra letter at the very beginning, all you'd end up with was an unusable chunk of text.' - a bit like when you've composed a txt or email then realise you have a spelling error and are sadly using an iPhone instead of a phone with editing capabilities.
Thanks for the heads up here, I just bought an x220 off Ebay last week and according to Lenovo's Battery Utility 2015 tool, I need a replacement. Here for the installer if you need to check.
I'm pleased about this, as batteries are never warrantied by Ebay sellers, so I'm getting a brand new warrantied one from Lenovo!
(Just found out the warranty is only 90 days. Still, better than 0 days I suppose)
Well perhaps he means that Device Guard isn't mandatory?
What strikes me about that successful hover and land footage, is that I'm so used to seeing scenes like that in CGI, that that footage doesn't look real!
Perhaps not, but Mulder has and he's back soon!
Maybe they should just go all in an merge Intune with Office 365.
If Windows 10 is 'free' for consumers anyway, just chuck a bit more on the price of Office 365 and give biz customers 10 with it.
Wonder how long was left on his sentence and why he turned himself in?
Perhaps he had to do something and needed to be out to do it.
'spose I should go read the Beeb article.
What's kinda really annoying about this at the moment, is SOHO/SMB NAS' have such poor cloud storage support. Why is there no app on ReadyNAS for OneDrive for example (or Azure)?
You suspect wrong, it's free for the lifetime of the device.
Most consumers get Windows for 'free' anyway, with their purchase of hardware, so basically what they're saying is, for this version of Windows, free upgrades.
'primarily in order to uncover threats'
Evidence that they have found ANY?
Weapons of mass surveillance
I don't think it's so much a privacy issue actually, this is an abuse of power issue.
That's something everyone should be concerned with.
But then, to quote Smith: 'Billions of people just living out their lives...oblivious'
Err, so does <!DOCTYPE html> prevent this?
I would say that the Walton family controlling more wealth than 40% of Americans is bordering on evil.
That's just one example off the top of my head.
Here's another. If you had a wage of say $20,000 per annum, buying an apple for you would be the equivalent of spending 400,000 dollars for Warren Buffett.
(I understand Mr Buffett to be a sensible man and this is not a personal attack on Mr Buffett, rather an observation of a messed up system (an opinion that he may well share))
I do not like the capitalist system.
I also do not like psychopaths.
The perspective is, both groups cause harm.
That's debatable :D
You've hit the nail on the head there me ol' fruit.
If small businesses had enough bandwidth, they'd jump on the VoIP bandwagon sharpish. More lost revenue for Bastard Telecom.
It also amazes me how wasteful of money BT are. I worked in a business centre in a large town just outside Glasgow, which was supplied by a 200pair cable from one exchange and a 50pair cable from a different exchange. The 200pair was so congested (imagine @40 broadband circuits through that) and the frame in the business centre was the old solder type.
There was a BT van in the car park there every week at least, without fail. They would come in and fix the complaint,only to cause another fault for a different tenant. BT engineers no longer carry the equipment to properly terminate with a solder connection, so they just wrap it around and hope for the best.
Last time I was in the frame closet, I noticed an Openreach engineer had scrawled on the wall 'pure quality' (a common colloquialism in those parts)
Indeed,it feels like Uncle Reg is actually trolling.
A redesign WITHOUT being responsive??!? Srsly wtf?
I'm no web design guru, but even I could make this site responsive in about 5 minutes.
Another network fail, you'd have thought they would have learned their lesson with the PSN breach. Maybe $400,000 wasn't enough.
"I was just wondering if you could tell me when things would be back as there's people wanting to work."
Fuck that one really grinds my gears!!! No fucking shit, Sherlock!
Couldn't you do iSCSI?
Well Schmidt did say he welcomed promises by international leaders to crack down on tax loopholes.
This is one way to do that.
Guess you don't read Reddit :D
A home fitted with solar PV and a ground source heat pump, would surely require very little in the way of fossil fuels, if any at all. And that's achievable right now.
Regarding the cost, it's a simple supply and demand argument. When plasma TVs first launched, they were around £4000 each. Driven by market demand, this fell to £400 pretty quickly.
If ground source heat pumps and PV roofs were mandated on all new build, the price of installing it would plummet and therefore be more accessible to retro-fitting for owners of older properties.
So if each domestic property was self sufficient (including charging cars, at least for the daily commute), then attention needs to turn to industrial processes. Again, if the large sheds that businesses live in were covered in PV, a large amount of energy requirement would be removed. Converting industrial waste into energy is already being done by various companies, I believe Sainsbury's have a store powered entirely by food waste. There are a good few countries that have close to 100% renewable electricity generation through geothermal or hydroelectric.
I'm far from being an expert, but these things I can see with my own eyes, so I refuse to believe it's not going to be possible.
I'm sure saying this will probably prove unpopular.
I remember this story when it first came up.
I hope Apple get whipped for this. It's blackmail and deceitful.
See my remark below.
I'm not a marketroid, promise! :D
As long as it's 20p per day on a daily basis, we're fine. That or buy £10 worth of credit and use it at a rate of 20p per hour (40p for premium).
Let's be generous and say the average Netflix (for example) viewer watches 1 hour per day.
At £6 per month, that's 0.20p per day, or 0.20p per hour.
So if all content providers were to,charge, say 0.20p per hour for their mainstream catalogue, or say, 0.40p per hour for blockbusters or what they class as premium content (the BBC colour TV license is almost exactly 0.40p per day), then it wouldn't matter if we needed multiple subscriptions to multiple providers.
If however, they all charge £6 per month, someone's going to lose out somewhere.
The consumer will lose out through being unable or unwilling to pay for access to all they content they want to watch. Some content providers will lose out to others because they're not in the viewers discretionary budget.
If providers harmonise the price per minute watched, they could also sell that to other service providers in bulk, similar to existing agreements such as MVNO etc.
Fragmenting is a bad move and will ultimately lead to a loss in revenue unless the price is harmonised at an affordable rate.
The thing with all these similar products, is the upstream bandwidth available behind them which is where cloudy solutions prevail.
So is the polo-neck the normcore of the hipster?
How about Google pushes the industry to standardise the HTML and CSS allowed (or not) in an email?
Then EVERYONE sending an email can make sure it's formatted to convey the message on whatever device displays it.
If email really still is relevant (and I think it is), then why the fuck this hasn't been done long ago, I just can't fathom.
Browsers are now, by and large, accurate and consistent, why not the same for email renderers?
What if you reskinned the doors, wings, bonnet and boot with carbon-fibre? That bonnet alone must weigh a tonne.
Also those bumpers look damn heavy and I bet the headlight glass is 2 inches thick :)
Keep the seats though. One can go TOO far!
Is there a completely ad free option yet?
I guess modded ROMs will become a lot more popular then?
Besides, there is already regulation for unlocking a phone tied to a particular network, so presumably that legislation would be extended to this method.
I wish the stable release auto-updater had a checkbox to allow milestones too.
(can't be bothered to flash ROMs manually on all my devices)
