I'd be worried if we were still using Java in the 22nd century...
The Barclays banking app isn't too different - it too doesn't claim to like running on a rooted phone (which the Android layer on a Jolla phone appears to be). It can be worked around by renaming or removing 'su' as that is apparently the guilty party.
Nope.. as of 14:29 it's still there for all to see.
Pint, for obvious reasons :(
And one you can't block people on either.. in fact they catagorically state it's not possible because it "goes against the nature of the site". Good if you want to harass someone you've blocked on Failbook, as I found out the hard way.
Maybe it's mission is complete and it's returning to it's base: Vulture Central.
Who else read the Dr Strangelove lines in his voice? lol.
...well the newest series of BB is due to start tonight, so they must still be in for madcap wastes of time?
Windows installations could also bork the device in the same way.
Problem is, if you use another OS, you have the problem of getting a decent app store going, and employing an Android runtime to get the decent ones - which is what Blackberry tried in BB10 and Jolla did with Sailfish. Both didn't go well - why bother with a phone that has a compatibility layer when you can get one that runs everything native?
Would be much less hassle, and increase greatly uptake if they went with something that runs Android apps natively.
If you can create a new mobile OS, and combine it with an app store that can rival that of iOS and Android, *and* convince devs to port their apps to it, you'd be in business. Which is what MS tried with Windows Phone and that didn't go all too well either.
They could potentially go with Cyanogenmod as well. I'd go for one if that were the case.
TITSUP? More like SNAFUBAR
Sadly making the trade illegal will do nothing to stop it.
There was an issue a few weeks ago where AC posts were given the wrong icon I think. Maybe that's reared it's ugly head again.
Windows 7 works fine with UEFI - so long Secure Boot is turned off. It also refuses to boot the installer if SB is turned on. Saying that, 8.1 and 10 work fine with SB off. My box dual boots Mint 17.3 and Win10 Education (it was free via Dreamspark). Both of which play nice with Secure Boot. However there are two reasons I don't use it - I can't be bothered derping about to get rEFInd signed so Secure Boot doesn't throw a wobbly, and it doesn't like my Radeon 6850 X2, even with the GOP ROM flashed onto it.
It's happened on the weather report already so I don't see why not.
Don't some .govs just make the figures up anyway?
And shouts of "experminate!"?
They even managed to port Sim City to the Beeb (though from the C64 version).
You should check out what some of the newer sourceports can do with the engine. My port of choice is Zandronum, paired with Brutal Doom.
Accurate figure, if one assumes the install files of the shareware version, which came on 2 HD floppies. Fully installed it's around 5MB - and the retail version is pushing 11MB (going on the basis of DOOM v1.2).
I've never seen that happen... mind you I use rEFInd as my boot loader. The only thing it defaults to is that last OS it booted.
Payment taken in advance, of course...
A spellcheck wouldn't pick that up. A grammar check, however.....
Ice Weasel is just Debian's rebadged version of Firefox. Aside from the icons and name it's functionally identical, so that will go the same way eventually.
And when you do have to go up to the surgery chemist to collect emergency medication after being told half an hour earlier they're booked solid for the next three weeks - you find the place bereft of patients.
Add to the fact there have been various news articles in the past few months alluding to the new £1 design.
Will the improved version be known as the iPhone SE/30?
So what they've basically done is resurrect Services for Unix and change it to Linux?
Overclockers is pretty good too... the last few items I've bought from them came with a free mini pack of Haribos...
The Model B also had the 6522 VIA, which was needed for timings, such as Elite's mode trick.
The Modal A had a cassette interface, BNC composite video out, and TV out - that was it. A base Model B is identical to a Model A except for the extra 16K of memory and the VIA chip. Everything else (Econet, Disc, Tube, et al) were optional extras that required soldering.
Nor Chromium, unless you build it from source with the relevant stuff in.
Wrong - a virus is small and efficient in what it does... Windows doesn't fit either of those criteria.
The Android app isn't much better... open opening an article, the ad loads first, and half the time it doesn't bother trying to load the actual article afterwards. Ads load first time, every time though...
And back it will come, with a slightly different name - ad infinitum.
It was munching on 2-3 megabits of RAM?
Tactical Nuclear Penguin. . That is all.

*I know the actual quote refers to 12345 but hey ho.
True, but the Classic style cases make for good iPad mini docking stations. Now if only one could add a bluetooth module to an Apple Extended Keyboard...
It's the "IBM Model M Keyboard" of the Mac world, in regards to its longevity, sound and feel.
Made even better when you drop in the ROM from a IIcx (or was it the IIci?)
"Although advertised as a 32-bit computer, the SE/30 ROMs were “dirty,” containing some 24-bit code, meaning it could not run 32-bit applications without new ROMs (which Apple never produced) or a software patch. To use the SE/30 in 32-bit mode, you need a free copy of Mode32 from Apple (search the page for “mode32”). (You only need 32-bit addressing if you have more than 8 MB of memory.)"
Originally it was going to be known as the SEx (SE, because that's what it was, and the 'x', denoted that it had an '030 processor. It can also munch 128MB of memory, you can find a sufficient number of matching 30pin SIMs.
Would that be a MtM* reactor?
*Marvin the Martian
Or dried on Weetabix.
Shirley you mean "Tlump"?
The only military link to the clock method I can think of is that 6 is whatever is behind you (ie. "watch your six").
It's when the gangsters start to talk like politicians you want to worry.
I'm thinking one reason Virgin approve of the merger is because BT may decide to terminate their access to EE's mobile network. I mean would you supply bandwidth/spectrum to a direct competitor to one of your products?
Classic Shell works just as well in Windows 10.
I recall that if you logged into KDE as root on an old Mandrake distro, it warned you that you were logged in as root and you could do anything you liked, and the system "would do absolutely nothing to stop you".
