Re: Your better off printing a sling shot.
Wake me up when a 3D printer can duplicate itself.
Who am I to judge the reasons that another person has for picking their representatives in government?
But a government who wins the most seats where everyone votes has a good mandate. In a close contest or hung parliament this becomes important.
I think it crazy that so much money is spent just getting your base to attend a vote rather than convincing the electorate at large as to why you are the best man/woman for the job.
This is proof
Why do they let simpletons like this guy do copyright math? I mean an ebook file is smaller than an mp3. It should be a dead giveaway that the damage to the economy is bigger than for an iPod. The real losses could be as high as $16 billion per reader.
At least compulsory voting stops disproportionate influence going to a bunch of nutters. That said, the law states that you have to attend the polling booth and get you name marked off. If you truly don't care, just fold it in half and drop it in the box.
Re: Too late to switch again
I suspect there are a few billion "good reasons" to remain wp only.
Re: Oh Dear
Obvious troll is obvious.
Re: Microsoft's strategy is FAILING
No, I think Apple are selling toffee onions.
Re: MAFIAA fail?
That sort of theft would be at least $8 billion by my copyright math.
Re: You mean
No. It becomes innovative whenever it becomes supported by safari.
And of course that nail firing pin would look a bit suspicious too
Re: you mean a regular SMTP server...
Re: Cold start time setting?
Pretty simple actually, you just hold both the hour and minute buttons down for a few seconds until it flashes and when you press the select button it stops flashing and the seconds are at zero.
Re: It's worse than you think.
+1 good commenter. Would read again
pretty simple solution
It seems to me that they should just get judge Judy to decide who owes who what.
Re: Love it...
Always on by your definition of what they could mean is no different to the capability that all consoles have had for a long time now, even my Wii does that.
Clearly they mean a feature not present consoles don't have, otherwise it is hardly revolutionary is it?
If they proceed with a SimCity style always on connection, it will definitely be a turning point in consoles. It will be the end of the Xbox era.
Google play still has dosbox. It is also easy enough to install apps from other stores.
The ad block apps worked as a man-in-the-middle interception for all web traffic without an explicit permission token. I agree it is incredibly convenient for an ad business to be allowed to block an ad blocker but it is hard to argue that this technique couldn't be exploited by malware.
" A better comparison might be Bill Gates dining with the queen and not stopping eating when she does."
Damn, I didn't know that one either.
Re: Wow, screw Google
You are indeed a crazy operations guy.
I don't care if TIFKAM is kept, as long as you access it from a shortcut in the start menu that they reinstate.
a bit more to it
Bill Gates did an interesting talk on TED about it. His basic premise was that
CO2 = population x services each person enjoys x units of energy per service x CO2 output for each unit of energy.
Basically we have an substantially increased population over the past 50 years and with places like China and India modernising the average services per person has gone through the roof.
Energy per service has reduced slightly as has CO2 per unit of energy but not enough to offset the first two points.
Can it play Crysis?
Re: what I do ....
I am afraid that you have misunderstood the concept of an internet forum.
Re: This seems like the opposite of open source...
It doesn't even stop Firefox from visiting those sites. You just get a warning and a recommendation not to proceed.
Re: Windows Security Patches + Anti-Virus considered Harmful
Talk about missing from right in front of the posts. If there is an article with as much Microsoft fail as this you should have been able to get +40 rather than -40.
assuming this is true...
How does the exploit access the flight control system?
A pretty big obstacle would be to send it data at all without being somewhere where passengers tend to not be permitted to go.
I don't see what they did there.
Re: I'm suprised El'Reg didn't pick up on a story a couple of weeks back

Re: yes, but
I suppose you could brand your toast with images of cats.
Will make Eadon's life a bit easier.
unlimited has a very clear limit
It is the promised bandwidth multiplied by the seconds in the month.
If there is a restriction above and beyond this then just be upfront about it.
Re: One–ten thousandth of a human hair = ?
Marginally smaller than a blue whale.
Re: 9 out of 10 ???
Re: Misleading Marketshare Stats
So cars should only be counted as cars if they can compete with 5 series??
If BMW decide not to build sell anything suited to young girls without rich daddys that is their prerogative.
But I would point out that most of the cheapest droids would outperform iPhone 1 on any measure. Does that mean iPhone 1 isn't a smart phone?
Re: Fine, but......
More importantly, where does it come from.
Hint: check your windows license costs in 12 months time and let me know if you are ahead.
What a crappy idea
sorry, I'll get my coat.
100x the density also means 100x the theoretical throughput.
Different technologies have different characteristics that are good in different cases. SSDs for example are very good at not damaging if dropped. They have very fast seek times but write speed and MTF is far less impressive.
I have no idea if hard disk will go the way of the zip drive or not, but even if no windows pc ships with a spinning disk it is a bit unimaginative to ignore the whole technology.
so what you are saying is
That they have no hope of pinning him for any of the charges. Got it.
Your mind must have better logical reasoning skills than mine.
I don't see the fundamental difference between blocking the revenue of a developer who is ad funded vs blocking the revenue of a website who is ad funded.
In fact I suffer the same level of guilt when I leave the TV and make a coffee during those ads that are paying for that very show.
That said, I haven't installed adblock on my mobile yet. It lives on my desktop because websites were showing ads that got in the way, made a racket or otherwise consumed half the resources of my PC. On the mobile it hasn't been as bad.

Crap, I did something wrong there.
