Safety authorities to hold hearings into Boeing 787's battery woes

FAIL

A tenth of that?

"Boeing reported to the NTSB that the likelihood of its batteries failing was once every 10 million flight hours, but in this and a second case the batteries caused problems in less than a tenth of this time"

Er, yes. 1 million flight hours would still be 41,000 + days of flights, or 114 years. I think the Boeing has been 787 has been flying a little less than that!

Facepalm

Wonderful

Can I just vaguely remember reading something about us running out of IPV4 addresses? I mean, doing this with a spare /24 in those circumstances would be a waste, wouldn't it?

Thumb Down

Still beaten by Richer Sounds...

Yeah, $6,050 a square foot is fine, but Richer Sounds is still around 5,500 GBP per square foot... And 17,000 GBP per square foot for the London Bridge store.

Apple seeks cooling fan patent for iPhone, iPad

Coat

Think competitors

Maybe the idea isn't to use it themselves, but to beat those overheating Intel powered phones when they come out? Charge them a $1 or $2 licencing fee per unit?

AIIA takes the ‘Australian’ out of price-gouge concerns

Kitschcamp

Yeah, but have you tasted the limes here compared to the ones off the shelves in the UK or Scandinavia? I'm more than happy to pay the price for food that tastes *this* good!

Re: Strange...

Can't say I'm surprised, really. The set top boxes for Canal Digital are bloody awful! How they were ever going to deliver on that platform I did wonder.

Bit of a moot point for me, though, now. Have left the country and now got TiVo again :) I think that makes it a near 12 year unbroken run as a customer now.

WTF?

Strange...

Canal Digital already had an exclusive deal with TiVo for Scandinavia. So that's an exclusive with ComHem and a deal with Canal Digital?
