So nothing like those floaty scanner things in Prometheus?
Those little widgets looked so cool.

You'd probably want to stipulate that you died in a heroic way as well. Such as rescuing baskets of kittens and babies from a burning orphanage. (You don't die in the fire, but tragically after rescuing the last singed kitten.)
I'm guessing that it would be slightly easier with one of those powerful 2W green lasers.
I completely agree with you. There's just one problem.
This legislation will be written by lawyers. A profession which is still passing documents around by fax machine.
I've no idea. It seems a little silly to me to have a law to cover a specific case of a manual that details how to commit a very specific crime.
Why no legislation on burglary manuals? Or Murder manuals? Armed robbery manuals? (Maybe it's the programmer in me, but why not create an abstract law regarding the dissemination of criminal techniques in manuals and then have a concrete implementation for each crime?)
Is this law really going to accomplish anything? I'm no criminal mastermind, but I don't think that criminals go on to the internet, download a "paedophilic manual" and then start practising.
That's the evilest thing I can imagine! :')
All non-trivial software solutions have holes. See The Halting Problem.
That's not actually a bad idea... Let's hope that this device has a decent API and a USB connector.
You could have it sync up with a movie of your favourite grumble flick, or you could have it vary the grip, frequency and length of strokes.
How are you supposed to fit it all in there?
There's only 4" of stroke there. It doesn't seem like nearly enough.
The children of the future will be paying for things with old websites I wrote years ago. It's kind of beautiful in a way :)
Johnny the tackling alzheimer's patient?
I took away the opposite opinion when I'd finished reading the article. It seems that a womens biggest problem is in fact other women.
Have you seen the way some irresponsible drivers treat horses on the road though?
It's not the intelligent self driving car I'm worried about, it's the irresponsible human drivers on the road that I worry about. There are already people that display a ridiculous level of hostility to people that use Google Glass, I dread to think how they would react to the Google Car.
This is incredibly personal and sensitive information that they are giving away.
Maybe it's time that the Data Protection Act got an update.
Coat with the locked iPad in the pocket...
So essentially, what you're saying is: It's ok to run a url aggregator as long as torrent files aren't the only thing you're indexing.
Did London annex Poland while I wasn't looking?
Yes, I want a laser controlled bee cannon.
(If the bees could wear little laser packs as well that would be great.)
Or has Cortana discovered a more subtle interpretation of the three laws of robotics?
They'll be making it a criminal offence to not just hand over passwords next...
Fortunately for the market, it's full of people not in their right mind that would quite happily sit and watch a feature film on a 2 inch screen. I've seen them do it on the train.
It works on a delicate balance of caffeine and alcohol.
It would make the pictures of my junk more interesting for a start...
Good point Number 6!
Can American courts compel a citizen to commit a crime in another country? I can't wait to find out the answer!
Hey! What about your booming Crystal Meth industry?
I'm going to have to start getting people to leave me messages on Viber.
I wish I worked for Google. (or Apple, Intel, or Adobe)
Are the authorities sure she's human?
I need to know for a friend.
Upvote for expression.
Would you be interested in buying a bridge?
#yes, #but #you #can't #have #a #modern #site #without #hashtags!
It's slow. So slow. The interface is awkward and difficult to navigate. It looks like someone has decided to use pretty much every single transition known to JQuery to display, move or hide elements (and there's no way to turn it off.). It looks like one of those Web 2.0 websites where every flashy new technology has been used just for the sake of it.
There's no verification of users. Yes, you can create an account with bogus credentials and then upload anything you like. The entire site is full of schoolboy errors like this. I don't know about you, but for £200K I expected more.
No one likes Comic Sans.
Can be taken as the gospel truth.
Probably one of the few communication methods left that aren't under constant surveillance by the NSA.
AFAIK, and IANAL: There is precedent set for using the function of a system, even though such a function may not be intended behaviour. (Old Bailey trial 3 Oct. 1973)
However, taking the information gained and using that to circumvent a security measure would be contravening the act.
Disclaimer: The above is pure speculation. Again, IANAL.
That's even worse!
Rupert Murdoch thinks he's relevant and has something to contribute. Yet the man continually demonstrates his ignorance every time he utters his opinion.
Two MPs enter!
One MP leaves!
How about trial by jury for MPs?

I too was wondering if there was any swelling.
But he's just gone an squandered a ton of public money, so he's got to say something.
Has El Reg journalism sinking to the lowest common denominator?
Can you replace facts with wild speculation if you phrase it in the form of a question?

Bacon and tomato sauce surely!
