Re: Selection guides?
Actually yes I find the data sheets on both comapny's sites to be very useful and easy to read.
The Churchill Stalin story is interesting. But did we have to have the bit about the royal who wanted to marry someone he couldn't? Just leave that crap for ITV please.
Re: RFC 6238
I wouldn't trust anything I read in Ars comments. Their commentards are an ignorant and unintelligent bunch of reactionaries. And, the articles aren't much better really.
Re: Don't buy an Xbox One
Lies. MS have said that an internet connection is not required so all you are is a fud spreading FUD.
Try parenting your kids for a change
You wouldn't leave them unsupervised on a city center street so you shouldn't leave them unsupervised on the internet. You are supposed to watch your kids at all times, not leave them with the TV or Internet while you go off and drink a bottle of Merlot.
If two Wii Us is a "decent percentage of global sales" then Nintendo have a lot more to worry about because they've sold very few consoles indeed.
Last month Wii U sales were reported at 3.45m world wide. So he accounts for 0.00005797% of global sales, which is less significant than a rounding error.
custodian of this stash, on behalf of his former partners in crime
More like custodian of this stash, on his own behalf. Maybe that was his plan all along? The various operations were just covers and his partners patsies for his money making plans.
Ratner moment? No
Ratner screwed his own business by saying it sold cheap crap. Murdock sold MySpace years ago so this is nothing like a Rstner moment at all.
I suspect BT will not be happy at losing all that revenue on their local call rate numbers.
Will cause more problems than it solves
GPs surgeries can already send prescriptions direct to pharmacies but whenever my gf uses that service something goes wrong. Like it takes 3 or 4 days for them to get the prescription and get all her medicines in at the pharmacy. Or the GP forgets to add one of her many medications to the prescription requiring another round of phone calls, etc. Or they put the wrong quantity or the wrong type of pill (she finds it very hard to swallow some kinds of pills). It is faster and she is more likely to get the correct medicines if she or I pick up the prescription, check it before leaving the surgery and take it to the pharmacy ourselves.
This might help for people who go to the doctor and get a prescription with one item on it a couple of times a year but for the long term sick with regular large prescriptions it will make their situation worse.
Re: Let me get this straight.
10 years sentence for £55m fraud so roughtly £5.5m damage = 1 year sentence
So £13m damage = 2 years 4 months
By your own reasoning maths says it's pretty much proportionate.
A phone with no Facebook or Instagram? If it had no Twitter app as well that would be enoughy for me to buy one!
Re: Wait a minute, there's a penguin pecking at my ankle.......
Ah yes I had to update her indoors' Fedora netbook last night too. 303 updates!
Now that one took it's time.
Re: Ah yes
Oh yeah all evening. It took me 5 minutes to patch both my Windows 7 boxes at home last night.
Oh woe how my evening was wasted.
Re: Sad to see them go
I'm in exactly the same boat with our head office having no FTTC, no Virgin, etc and BT have been putting the install date for FTTC back 3 months every time it gets close for over a year now. Bonded ADSL was our only option to get a half decent speed. For the moment we'll stick with BeSky but as soon as they drop the bonded product or we can get FTTC we'll be off.
All the yoof I know have switched to iPhones or Android in the last 12 months. Looks like they use Facebook / Twitter instead of BBM now.
If WinPho is so slick it must be the market leader, right?
Will they ask for my inside leg measurement or a chest X-ray?
Yes because they need to know which other people they can match you with to create a Human Cent-iPad.
Is that some kind of tool for penetration testing if you're worried about Scandinavian hackers?
Pens should be banned
You can kill people with them and everyone can afford a pen.
Also scissors, cutlery, stones, bats / rackets / clubs of all kinds. In fact ban everything because you can figure out a way to kill someone with almost anything.
Apparently they even made a profit last year. God knows how.
I watch ITV chennels for an hour a night for 2 weeks of the year - the IoM TT coverage on ITV4. There is nothing else worth watching on any of their channels.
For someone who is chief executive of probably the world's biggest internet company it's incredible how little he understands said internet.
Re: Pegged out...
Didn't you hear his god awful accent in the previous movie? He did the worst Scottish accent I've heard since Mental Gibson. His wife is Glaswegian. I hope she took the piss out of him mercilessly for it.
Born in 1973
"Orci, Kurtzman and Lindoff were all born in 1973... repeats in the early 1980s... Star Trek: The Motion Picture... kids who’d grown up on Star Wars... on one side the folk who preferred the more cerebral sci-fi of the five-year mission; on the other, those who just wanted more space battles."
I was born in 1973. I saw the original series before TMP and I saw TMP in the cinema. Aged 6 I think, and a huge SW fan, I preferred the series. I found TMP slow, boring and pretentious. I was much happier a few years later with Wrath of Khan, even though it did scare the crap out of me with the brain eating bugs and made me cry when they killed Spock. Wrath of Khan is still the best ST film imo and still evokes the same emotions in me all these years later.
So don't assume anyone born in 1973 saw the ST films first or that we prefer them to the series.
I wrote a Spectrum version in BASIC using a custom font for sprites. I had the numbered commands but incorporated the named quadrants and animations for the torps and phasers. I also included 3 dificulty modes that changed the size of the galaxy. I gave it away to everyone at school, in some cases as a swap for a copy of another game.
"What happens if you buy a device for an employee and they leave the job a month later?"
Then you give it to their replacement as has happened everywhere for years. Duh
Re: I find these whole debate a Joke !
I've had plenty of jobs and never once have I been asked to show ID. If a prospective employer asked for ID then I would turn down their offer.
I read their blog post yesterday and the whole thing looks like an advert covered in link bait to me. A day after a game was released by a new, independant studio that no one has heard of before there were 214 legal players and 3k pirates? If they hadn't released it on torrent themselves a cracked version would not have been available and there would have been no pirates and probably less legal players as well.
"you'd need a suspicious bulge to house the NFC reader"
Because my Galaxy S3 is sooo suspicious and bulgey. Who would notice the guy behind them at the ATM using his mobile? Just pretend you're using it to talk or text and no one would be suspicious. You probably don't even need to take it out of a pocket depending on how you write the card snaffling software.
Re: $10k is not a bad number
"They experience the outages, the bad performance, the poor support, you name it."
They are using the wrong cloud. I haven't had any of those experiences with Rackspace or Office365.
Re: Simpsons Tapped Out comes to mind....
I thought of the Simpsons game and several others too but note the exact wording - "may not modify, replace or update its own APK binary code". The Simpson's game has had a number of updates through Play as well as within the app itself recently. I'm guessing that the in game updates are data only, like new buildings and characters. Any actually new functions, like whacking snakes, have come with the updates through Play.
There is a limit on the size of an Andoid app install, 50Mb IIRC. So any app that needs a large amount of data, like a map or some games, downloads it on first run.
Re: Stupid question
Only if your rod was poking a spherical cow.
The Forever War
Great book. All fans of SciFi or war fiction should read it.
Even their cheapest pairs are better than anything from Beats.
"new trick is a chat feature baked into Google Drive that allows users to click on a file to initiate a chat with anyone else viewing it at the time"
Docs has had a chat feature for years.
Where's the book Pete? Still no sign of it.
If this data goes through my boradband connection then security will not be an issue because I will not connect it. I don't want some useless data from the fridge stealing bandwidth from my online gaming, watching films, etc.
If a secondary connection is provided specifically for this purpose then I'll just disconnect it anyway because it's none of their business what devices I have turned on in my home. If they make it a legal requirement to have it connected then it'll just suffer some unfortunate but seemingly accidental issues.
"a number of UK.gov websites - including the ICO - that use Google Analytics from Google's own servers"
Not on any computer I use they don't.
Say NO to Google Analytics, install Ghostery in your browser!
Granny Smasher awarded!
you have killed 50 grannys
What kind of idiot
What kind of idiot installs an update for an app via an advert in another app rather than through the standard update mechanism in the app store?
Oh yeah the users I have to support probably.
Who's laughing now bitch!
Invasion of Privacy
Threatening Public Officials
That's a nice series of offenses this guy is building up. All because "he woke up on Oxford Street... to find his Macbook Pro had gone, along with his credit cards". So he got so wasted he passed out in the street while carrying an expensive laptop? How does he know he didn't give it away while he was out of his face?
Re: This is not rocket science...!
Wow in future they're going to do basic testing. Wtf where they doing before?
Re: to answer the headline question
So it's better to cause more people in the world to starve and increase any climate change caused by burning fuels in order to make industry think about not using oil? That's some very stupid logic right there. Are you a Grenpeace member?
