Boffins: Searching for ALIENS is like looking for PIZZA among students

Gazareth

"It's like college students and pizza. If you see pizza in a room, and there's also college students in the room, chances are the pizza was freshly delivered, because students will eat the pizza quickly."

Well, apart from the half they keep for breakfast.

Sonos burns its Bridges: Our home-grown Wi-Fi mesh will do

Gazareth

Re: No, not quite

I was going to say this too, although the article does go on to say the Bridge is still needed if you're going for the 5.1 setup.

I might be able to free up a plug & ethernet socket now!

Re: accidents waiting to happen

Yep, it's not easy to see in the pic but there's a button on the front that you need to hold down before pressing the top for hot water. Don't remember the metal ever getting hot enough to hurt/scald either.

Re: Are we sure it's a selfie???

No mirror in sight, eyes focussed on the lens, not taken at an acute angle, no duck face.

Pretty sure Schmidt also says his own results aren't that useful. The numbers are more or less plucked out of the air.

IT mercenaries and buy-to-let landlords are my HEROES - here's why

Gazareth

Re: Loss of long term renting

Sorry, that should have been:

Re: Black Sheep is not a Peter Jackson film
