I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't come with an actual Dalek robot.
It probably wouldn't take me too long to build one though...
"I built something" he announced.
I have a hard time believing that he actually built the thing.
Trolls like Trolling
It gets better (or worse depending on your perspective)
There are hard drives that you can wipe remotely. And they will wipe themselves should they not be able to pick up a GSM signal after a certain length of time.
Putting one of these devices into a Faraday cage would actually cause the device to wipe itself.
Re: What? No KITT?
And the red light going back and forth. How could you forget that bit?
Technically, they aren't being evil...
Fiddlers who weren't too fussed about the copyrights of Nintendo
If I already own the cartridge, then don't I already have a licence to play the game? If I want to play Pokémon LeafGreen on my phone, I'm not depriving anyone of their money if I've already bought the game.
Re: I think you forgot the "S" after "METEOR".
I guess it depends on how big it is.
I bought the book. It's mine.
And if there's one thing that I hate more than anything else when I'm reading, it's someone reading over my shoulder Adobe!
Re: Voice recognition in fighters?
There's a big problem trying to get them to open the bomb bay doors.
Re: Cyberdyne Systems
"Court orders received - even if that number is zero."
It follows that if Twitter is suing the US government, then the number of court orders they have received is not zero.
Even if they can't disclose the exact number of court orders, could they disclose a ball-park figure? Something like "In 2013, Twitter received somewhere between 15,345.5 and 15,346.5 court orders."
If they are seriously expecting me to read the entire license agreement
Then I reserve the right to charge them for my time at the usual hourly rate. Why the hell should I have to read through 400 pages of legaleese just to use my own hardware?
"Copyright exception allowing them to make a private copy of a music CD"
I thought we already had that? Why on earth would there be legislation making backups illegal?
I can't imagine a more useless type of encryption.
I'd like Sir John Scarlett to name one case where that's happened.
I'm not saying that he's making it up, but fantastic claims like his need some sort of corroborating evidence.
Where do I apply?
I can't really do a worse job can I?
Re: Do they not read the news?
It also causes immigrants to come into the country to claim benefits and steal your job!
A system of tubes
If those tubes are pneumatic, then I'm all for it!
(Conceivably, if the tubes were large enough, you could use them to transport people, Futurama style...)
Re: no idea why anyone needs gigabit internet connectivity at home...
It's for downloading large amounts of "research material".
Even if James Comey got everything he ever wanted ..
And Google, Apple, et al stopped implementing encryption completely. What's to stop me from running my own encryption program?
If he were to make encryption illegal, only criminals would have any privacy.
I'm safe. I use a Microsoft Windows system.
I dread to think how many down votes I'm going to get...
8. He3 mining.
There's loads of it up there on the moon.
Maybe if they put an FBI Warning in front of every email...
It worked with piracy didn't it?
Why can't we all just get along?
Re: Get a proofreader.
It's still a level of journalism above a Daily Mail article. Have you seen some of the stuff they publish? It's tough to find an article there that doesn't have spelling and grammar mistakes.
Re: And here we go again...
Well you've obviously got something to hide, or you wouldn't be encrypting it!
Encryption just by itself seems to be regarded as suspicious by law enforcement bodies now, with absolutely no justification for that suspicion. The UK government fears encryption so much that they passed a law making it legal to compel a suspect to give up encryption keys.
Re: Sauce for the goose?
That was also my interpretation of the proposed "law".
They've invented a radio controlled boat.
How innovative! No one has ever done that before. How do they keep coming up with these fresh ideas?
Why do they keep lying when they are so easily caught out?
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.
