Make no money for 3 days because no one in Glasgow is stupid enough to own Bitcoins.
secure his privacy
So Zuck wants privacy but all his little Facebook bitches can't have any.
What a surprise.
And now for something radical
Here's a thought... If you want some reform why not get someone who isn't a Lord, Sir, Dame or Baroness to do the job? Then they might actually understand things like independence, accountability and not giving all the jobs to their cronies.
Wtf is the desktop version of Gmail? They have a webmail version and several mobile clients as well but no desktop app afaik.
Re: Obviously, it's time...
The new tab page doesn't show the last 10 pages you visited. It shows 9 pages for a start. These are made up of the pages you visit most frequently, pages you've pinned to the new tab page and doesn't include any you have told it to remove from the page. And if you have to squint to see what they are you need to see an optician, one who specialises in coke bottle lenses, coz you have serious sight problems.
Re: How about fixing the UI to one that works?
A Firefox update has never broken a plugin, that interface was set back in the early Netscape Navigator days and has barely changed since. They used to break extensions on a regular basis but I can't remember the last time one of my dozen or so extensions didn't already work with the latest version.
I can't comment on screen reader issues and agree they should leave the UI alone but with the theme I use I haven't seen any of the UI changes in recent versions. I don't like the Chrome UI so my Firefox still looks like Firefox, main menu and everything.
Re: Oh, dear me...
Isn't that something you use to clean windows? (the glass kind not the MS kind)
Sounds like something you use to polish your private parts!
We really don't need shale gas, or to import as much gas as we do. There is still billions of boe in the North Sea and most of it even has the required infrastructure nearby.
Does it help with
maggots in your scrotum?
You name it, we generally build it
Except you don't. You license the designs to other companies who customise them and then build it.
Nice to see a company fellow understands the business he works for.
Far too creepy Tesco
This is the reason I refuse to use supermarket club cards. If you use them they know everything you buy from Tesco, use their bank and they know what else you spend your money on, use their mobile network and they know who you call, and now they'll know everything about you thanks to the spyware in their phone.
Are we sure they aren't a subsidiary of NSAGCHQ Inc?
Re: I could not agree more .....
Only £300 a half day? I have a £150 call out charge and then its £300 per hour!
(unless it's someone who I'm happy to help for free, not many of those)
Re: What excites me? ( Larhten)
+1 mate, payday it is.
Re: Cos its not a real sport...
Ya got it right there Mr AC.
There may have been chaos at the borders
But, it was nothing compared to the failure of grammar in this article.
In other news water is wet, the sky is blue and if you remove enough system libraries from Linux / OSX / Unix / BeOS / other OS of choice it will become unstable too.
If I wanted Chrome I would use Chrome, I have it installed alongside FF for Chromecasting sites that don't have apps and testing web sites. But I really don't like the Chrome interface. Give me a main menu, tabs, location/search boxes and a navigation toolbar so I can actually get some work done without having to spend time figuring out how.
While I'm complaining about browser UI make the refresh button bigger, it is far too small to use.
An article about the best 2 player games without a mention of Speedball 2 is no article at all.
Re: If I was an engineer at Nokia
You're over 3 years too late with your suggestion; see Jolla.
Re: So what?
The inference is that the FBI wanted to hack Iran, etc but didn't want to get caught so they enticed some civilians to do it for them. If Sabu hadn't suggested a list of targets that are all on Uncle Sam's naughty list then it wouldn't look so bad.
Re: Cue the bus fans complaining... (Psyx)
So you're saying Bernie Ecclestone isn't a real F1 fan?
Next ye'll be tellin' us ye don't believe that haggis have one leg shorter than the other.
Sounds like the kind of presentation where the organisers glare at me a lot for laughing very loudly at the presenters.
Re: The 1950s want their values back
Dude there is this thing called humour, if you don't know what it is might I suggest you read some other website.
Re: ..and soon will do heating control too!
What a great idea - a completely insecure protocol controlling my gas boiler. I don't think.
Re: Do what with an unauthenticated protocol
My first thought was using his house to play Tetris.
Good news for Zebra and their partners. I used to be a Zebra Authorised Service Engineer, they build some of the toughest, most reliable kit you can buy. Pricey but well worth it.
"Among the most glaring holes, says Ridge, remains the gap that exists between government agencies and the private sector in regards to sharing data."
Ah now I get it, the NSA were just slurping all our data in order to tell us how to better protect ourselves online. They're the good guys after all.
Could be worse
Better than GIS software maker ESRI. They have issued a statement saying:
"ArcGIS Online – No customer action is required as mitigations have been applied to all service endpoints and certificates are being re-issued across the platform as a precautionary measure."
So they claim to have patched their servers but by 16/04 they still haven't replaced certificates and they are telling customers they don't need to do anything when a password change will be required. The mind boggles at the incompetence of such a large company with so many government and military customers.
Re: Philip Lewis
My friends have been dropping dead since I was 18. What difference would being over 50 make?
This health monitoring crap is a fad unless you're a professional sports person. I don't need it on my phone and frankly don't want it if it increases the price.
Re: Soft landing on the ocean
The legs add mass and if they are not fitted exactly symmetrically they may throw off the centre of mass. There may also be aerodynamic considerations. Having them fitted will make the test more useful.
I notice none of the sample images show a person with facial hair. How do they propose to tell from a photo of fresh faced 3 year old me that from age 19ish I would have a full beard?
Hair styles look roughly similar also, apart from predicting some receding of the hair line. How would they cope with a person who suddenly decides to shave their head or who grows their hair long?
"predicting the content that a user is most likely to watch and pre-caching"
Such a bad idea. Amazon can't manage to recommend books I actually want to buy, what makes them think their recommendations will be any better for films / TV programmes? If it downloads things you haven't asked for then some people will hit their broadband caps and others may hit fair usage limits without knowing why. Personally I don't want anything that could use large amounts of bandwidth just downloading when it feels like it - what if I am trying to watch a stream on a different device or playing an online game at the time!
Re: But does it have to so ugly and chaotic?
I assume you are referring to the shots of the home screen, which will be only as ugly and chaotic as the user prefers.
Most of what you describe sounds like a TV with a Chromecast dongle plugged into it.
If you pay peanuts...
you get monkeys.
I have no problems getting an engineer from my ISP on the phone in minutes, through to a person at my bank after entering my details and pressing one key, etc. My secret? I don't pick the cheapest possible option for everything.
This is a bad day for Mozilla and the web
Brendan Eich is a very clever guy and one of the people who has shaped the web since its early days. His personal opinions on non-related matters have nothing to do with his fitness as a programmer or CEO.
Re: Using someone else's hardware and electricity?
Except you won't make anything at all. Bitcoin mining is basically a race to find the next coin. If you use shit hardware then the guys using fast hardware (ASICs) will always find the next coin before you do so you will make nothing at all.
Clearly you haven't used Chromecast. Best 30 quid I've ever spent.
Ad networks use a unique id plus your age and gender to target ads to you.
Wow, who knew?
Re: Double-tap to wake
Why doesn't my Samsung have double tap to wake? Because it doesn't need it. Just press the home button on the front to wake the screen and check time, etc. Single press, no fiddling required. Aren't physical buttons great!
The Galaxy S4 has an IR remote for most tellies too. If you have Chromecast it's very useful because you can change the Chromecast program and the main TV volume on the same device and not have to hunt for the remote.
number of Gmail subscribers ranges between 289 million and 425 million
How many hundred million of those are people who bought an Android phone, need a Gmail account to use it and have never used it for email?
I use my Android required Gmail account for contacting one person and only read it on my phone so I never see the adverts. All my other email goes through my other work or personal accounts. I refuse to put anything else through a system that scans everything I read/write.
Land of the free?
So much for that. Don't they have a constitution that is supposed to protect his free speech? Or is it just free speech that agrees with a certain part of the population that is protected?
Re: FruitExpert Launches Free* Online course in lemon see-sawing!
Dear FruitExpert please sign me up for your course in Full Metal Jacketing. I have no major malfunction!
So where is the age verification on Freeview channels like Babestation? UK children can see women and gay men wobbling their arses and taking their tops off free on national television. How is that right but internet porn is wrong?
The point is to see what happens to the comet as it approaches the Sun and then moves away again. Parking it in Earth orbit would not achieve that.
