To be fair, the article does say "less toxic", not "low toxicity".

To be fair, the article does say "less toxic", not "low toxicity".
Promotion on The Register works! I had never heard of "Urban Airship", but now I have! Honestly, I would have guessed it was a band name, rather than a mobile push notification services vendor.
4. Methods that rely on proximity rather than a fingerprint would work with gloves. Some proposed methods are a ring. If your opponent can get that from you, they could probably take your finger as well.
5. If having a "smart gun" leads you to have an "accident' with your firearm, you should not have a dumb one either. Not a good argument.
7. If you don't properly maintain your firearm anyways, you won't maintain the "smart gun" feature. Not a good argument.
"So it seems that HP bought something without looking at it with a microscope, then found that it was not quite what it thought and so sues claiming fraud."
This is called blaming the victim. Buyers have some responsibility to limit possible harm, but the seller has the ultimate responsibility to not lie about what he is selling.
I wonder what Google puts on the W-2 forms it files with the IRS? No employee name, no address?
I really hope you meant "jigsaw puzzle". Not an actual jigsaw.
You know, I didn't know that mods could edit posts...
The Reg puts "ANALYSIS" labels on some articles. Ones like this should be labeled "NO ANALYSIS", perhaps.
This implies that Intel did no testing, the hardware manufacturers did no testing, and the ISPs who provided these boxes to their customers did no testing.
Some modern TVs let you plug-in and use a regular USB keyboard.
Assembling your website at view time has become the default. I run noscript, and it makes apparent how horrifying the modern web has become. Fortunately, many sites achieve good functionality even if you limit the 3rd/4th/5th/Nth parties. Those that don't, don't get my traffic.
You get a better surface with a door blank. Good size for a desk as well, you would probably have to cut down the full size OSB. Our desk is a door blank, some angle iron under it, all across two short filing cabinets.

"complicity" doesn't mean what they think it means.
the state of being an accomplice; partnership or involvement in wrongdoing:
complicity in a crime.
The problem here is that a phone that is off is not very useful.
That cow seems rather clean for an article about "Dirty COW".
Wikipedia has a section on the combat usage of the Phoenix. Does not look like a success to me. It also was not very long range, only 190KM.
My understanding is that the constantly in flux kernel interface is deliberate, to "incentivize" vendors to have their driver maintained by the linux kernel team. If you don't submit, then your customers suffer.
"cul de sac" is used "in the states" to refer to dead ends that broaden out into a circular shape (bag-like, perhaps...). I spent some formative years living on one, and it wasn't a "classy upscale gated" suburb, but was a suburb. It takes room for this kind of application, so you're not going to find it urban areas where space is at a premium.
"Instead, that data is displayed as text in an image that can be easily read by a person but not pulled by bot."
Seems the fail is partially at the WHOIS service end, in using a font that is ambiguous.
You'll note that AMD is a founding member of the OpenCAP Consortium. If CAPI was staying POWER specific, then why would they be involved?
Perhaps they have sensors to detect falling over and/or down?
@Apprentice of Tokenism
The issue here is that the BUG_ON was apparently used for debugging. Linus thinks the machine could have continued operation. This should have been a warning message, not a "pull the plug" scenario.
That is even scarier! Are not half the stories on El Reg about how data center backup generators temp to fail at the wrong time?
Personally, I find it hard to keep track of all the possible verb tenses. What are there? 12?
I found that this article was poorly designed.
Must have been even more exciting if you were red-green color blind!
AIX's goal is forward compatibility, which it has mostly achieved in my experience.
On the zSeries front, the platform has mostly grown by accretion, so lots of old program code will still function, with minimal porting work.
Any foreign tax paid is deducted from US tax paid. So as long as the US rate is > the foreign rate, the actual US rate is irrelevant. Apple pays no US tax on foreign earnings until those earning are brought back to the US as profits. With this Irish tax configuration, it pays no foreign taxes, either. Best of both worlds!
Well, doing a Power On Reset (POR) is basically a reboot. Can take some time to come back up, though. Some models even have a nice big reset button on the front! It is just labeled "Emergency Power Off" (EPO) instead.
These days, you IPL individual partitions (LPARs).
What jurisdiction is this?
I wonder who selects the photos? That must be an interesting job...
Yeah, I thought this was going to be about the game, which my pre-smart-phone-era phone had. I feel misled.
@ Pascal Monett
Even without AV, the OS should block this. Windows UAC will query for writes to system files, but I can blow away the MBR without any question? On a related note, I was surprised when the BIOS update program from the manufacturer ran fine without Windows asking for user approval of any kind.
"Can Microsoft really put GPL applications in their 'windows store' without breaking the GPL ?"
Why not? They just need to make the source available with the download.
re: 'WTF is a "204" database anyway?"
The google-fu is weak in this one...first google result:
"department managers were allowed to view information, including names"
I'm not sure that being able to see the names of employees in other departments is a security issue.
"Having created a basic "private" blockchain, then marvel as - after some time - you run out of currency."
This is a feature of bitcoin, not the blockchain itself. Corporate use of blockchain is not going to be for currency, but making transactions verifiable and non-refutable. As noted, "private" blockchains do not make sense.
So Spotify is saying this exact thing, that Apple is placing restrictions on competing music streaming services.
The article seems to gloss over this, but backfeeding power into the utility grid is going to make people very upset. And possibly dead. If your disconnect/transfer switch device is known to be problematic, why was it allowed to be installed in the first place?
@ Lee D
You can get silicon car radiator hoses, that should last longer than the commonly used rubber hoses. The environment in a vehicle engine compartment is also, hopefully, much harsher than a data center.
Microsoft has a bug bounty program:
max payout is $100,000 (US dollars). $100,000 is greater than $90,000, yes, but you can only get it once, then MS fixes the hole (probably). If you "sell" the bug on the black market, you can sell if multiple times.
The problem with that view, is that without the "speculation" creating a secondary market for "used" shares, then who would do the initial investment? A car analogy: what would the new car market be like if selling your car was impossible?
Just where are you and the TV transmission tower located so that airplanes are a regular issue? For most of the country, this would mean that the airplane just crashed.
In God we trust. All others pay in cash.
As we all know, no rule or law on the books, by itself, prevents anything at all. Rules and laws show what society has agreed what is OK behavior, and a consequence for such behavior.
Regarding point 6, these AMD "cores" share a lot more than just the FP unit.
As far as I know, Intel does not sell hyperthreading as more cores.
Did you click on the "ACME Splaffer" link? I think it is fully in line with the Register mindset.
This isn't a "WebSphere Cloud". They are probably client owned and operated servers running WebSphere. WebSphere is "middleware', not an application in and of itself.
Lithium ion batteries in their device are safer than those that are loose, as the terminals are not going to get shorted accidentally.
