The discs last 1000 years
But how long do the reader writer machines last for?
What's 3nders game?
And how much will this app cost? If it's anything like other dating websites, women will be allowed to join for free while the guys have to stump up money.
£25 to £60 for a key?
Blizzard sold me a key for £5. What are these other companies making their keys out of?
The IDF is the most moral army in the world...
They're doing "sacred" work.
I guess when you're a member of gods chosen race then everything you do is moral.
Why spend all that time and effort
To make an inferior copy of the old WAP network?
One of the few defences against the Picard Maneuver...
Do they mean a Kindle?
Re: I smell something fishy ...
All these fish puns are giving me a haddock.
Re: I smell something fishy ...
I trout it very much.
Will any of us still be alive in the year 2313?
Because this is more fun than using the "Send Corrections" link :)
Penny from Inspector Gadget?
My first thought was Dick Tracy. Maybe I'm getting old.
Freedom and Justice for all
Not much chance of that with secret courts, secret warrants, secret evidence and the government going around conducting unlawful searches and seizures.
I got as far as Front Page....
Then I started getting flashbacks to when I was fixing websites in the 90's.
Use a proxy to get outside of the Virgin Network?
Like a pirate on a VPN? I don't want my name added to a government watch list!
Are these rules going to affect search engines "Powered By Google"?
I don't think that the European Commission has completely considered the knock on effects of what they are asking.
Since when was privacy suspicious?
Answers on a postcard please.
It's a bit much when the obligatory XKCD is in the article.
What's a commentard to post now?
"We wouldn’t stand idly by if paintings worth hundreds of millions of pounds were being stolen from the National Gallery." - Sajid Javid.
If people were going into the National Gallery and taking a photo of a painting to enjoy at home, nothing would have been stolen. People that visit piracy sites aren't taking the thing, they are taking a copy of the thing.
I like how the FBI get involved when it's someone famous that has their photos nicked.
Re: Not forgetting
Alien Vs Predator Requiem was better.
Re: Refunds are only sought for games that are not fit for purpose (i.e. don't run)
The "still in development" games are a bit hit and miss. Don't Starve was totally awesome, but some of the others are next to totally unplayable.
Nigger is in there, but Nigga is not. The list apparently penalises spelling.
And since when was clitoris a dirty word?
"could be breaking the law"
Sounds like the police are overstating their powers again. They really don't like peaceful citizens with cameras do they?
How do we tell if our universe is a hologram?
We look for the big silver H on its forehead of course!
My Starcraft II league rating is about to go up!
Goodbye Bronze League! Platinum here I come!
This article doesn't represent me or anyone I've worked with.
Phoummala Schmitt doesn't have a problem with IT Blokes, she has a problem with arseholes. This should be properly reflected in the title of the article.
We're going to need to breed some kind of Big Bird to take care of these spiders
Then we're going to need to genetically engineer some kind of enormous cats to take care of the birds...
Do The Times really expect us to believe that?
That people would just go on the internet and tell lies?
Copyright is a fickle mistress
Though I was looking forward to the monkey launching his own legal proceedings.
fAiling tO cApitalise tHe sEcond lEtter?
Quite possibly one of the most heinous crimes I've ever heard of!
Does Yahoo really go around taking screenshots of peoples desktops?
I'd like to see some evidence of that claim.
Re: SATA 3.2 ????
I've got an SSD in my desktop and the thing goes so fast it's a wonder that it doesn't end up travelling backwards through time.
Should have used Menshn...
Never had a problem with privacy on that site.
HSBC only got a slap on the wrist last time.
And they were actually laundering money for drug dealers and terrorists. I doubt that these "money service businesses" are going to be treated any differently.
Password fields need to be bigger.
I have to truncate most of my favourite pass phrases in order to use them as passwords.
Re: Siri ...
"Last year 15 times as many boys took the [Computing] A level as girls."
That's probably because more boys did the course than girls.
No more turning over a USB thing, then turning it over again to plug it in: Reversible socket ready for lift off
Re: Size Part 2...
I've always been surprised that the port labels back there aren't written in Braille.
Are those search results just removed for europeans?
In other words, can I still Google for a picture of Barbra Streisand's house from somewhere outside the EU?
I wonder if they could use other bacteria to detect other stuff?
Like hazardous chemicals or gold.
Re: if the US can be far behind then?
The US are way in front with episodes like the McCarthy era. Except that now they actually have the technology to do it properly.
A US patent doesn't seem to be worth the paper it's printed on anymore
They can regulate it
As soon as a politician can describe to me in detail, what it is that they are regulating.
I wont hold my breath.
Re: It'll still give...
Yeah, but imagine the peace and quiet!
Re: MD5 seems rather a bad choice
Especially due to the high number of hash collisions that would result from using that to identify pictures.
Isn't this just existing technology
But in an Apple product?
That should stop the problem once and for all.
Has Thailand finally solved the problem of people downloading books and games from the Pirate Bay? Because if not, I can see a bit of a loophole...
Re: If the public knew the truth about Company X...
Except now people are going to think, "Company X is having a secret tribunal, they must be up to no good."
Brain the size of a planet...
And they ask me to hitch hike across Canada...
I see the CLOP are throwing their weight around again.
Where exactly is their jurisdiction?
