eBook - £5.99, Paperback - £7.99 ?
You have - "Price £3.59 (Ebook) / £5.59 (Paperback)"
Presumably not raging VAT as the eBook is 66% more and the paperback is 43% more (approx).
No worries, problem solved, Amazon has it cheaper than the publisher. Of course it does!
but not that good!
Shouldn't that be 'intragalactic' travel agency, not 'intergalactic'?
to buy shares in glove companies.
Someone begat and raised these pieces of crap. I say take them out and any family they have 2 generations either way to be sure we remove them from the gene pool. Christmas spirit can take a back seat after getting torrent-lockered. Good job I do regular backups to Blu-Ray.
Soitec, a French manufacturing company, says it has used techniques designed for making microprocessors to produce solar cells with a record-setting efficiency of 46 percent, converting more than twice as much sunlight into electricity as conventional cells.
There had better not be mirrors involved!
"Focused Sunlight", "Mirror(s)". If it isn't about 400W for 1 square metre of sunlight direct from the sky, get lost.

What use is a re-entry heatshield in the thin atmosphere of mars, let alone the wisp around the moon.
It should make a nice crater so we can find the landing site though.
Similarly, parachutes on Mars are so useless we use rockets to land, Good luck with them on a lunar landing.
So, how do these technologies help us get to either objective?
I work alone in my own IT company doing hardware and software.
What's to stop any female doing the same?
Hard to blame the workplace when you are the workplace.
There is plenty of absolutely free tuition and education at all levels available to all ages and genders via the web.
It must be due to their own preferences.
"IBM's proposed sale of its semiconductor operations to GlobalFoundries will be scrutinized by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. because GlobalFoundries is owned by investors in the United Arab Emirates and IBM supplies chips to the Defense Department." - http://www.computerworld.com/article/2837426/ibms-chip-business-sale-gets-national-security-scrutiny.html
I think someone has been misled by the English term 'Sweets' meaning lollies (as we Aussies say).
When I was a kid we had 'Ice Cream Sandwich' lollies where the Ice Cream between the wafers was replaced with marshmallow, so that too can be a lolly.
So I guess 'Liquorice' or 'Lolly'. If it has to be a dessert, I guess 'Lemon Meringue', because that's my favourite :-)

Just a fourth-hand acquaintance with contemporary_learning then.
What does he think education is? Politics?
The captain goes down with the ship and Whitman has decided not to let enterprise take PC and Printers down with it.
I guess all those phone boxes will be currently served by copper. I'll bet that Telstra find they CAN run fibre to these tiny premises, no trouble at all. - Fibre To The Phonebox!
And people should have the right to confidential communications on their Blackberry.
G.fast, reaches high speeds on <250m loops. Not much good for those of us 5km+ from the exchange, unless you think that using this for the copper section of FTTN will somehow magically increase the pitiful provisioning to the node that seems planned.
HFC is just FTTN strung on poles, how long are the copper sections from node to house and how does that copper used to connect dwellings compare to ancient telephone pairs?
FTTH has always been the only sane solution with any prospect of satisfying today's requirements for all users (not just city dwellers), let alone tomorrows.
So, not true then?
"...The word is defined by the Compact Oxford English Dictionary as "an item of unreliable information that is repeated so often that it becomes accepted as fact"..."
(It is not a bit of trivia)
And then a bit more, apparently.
Amazon should start their own publishing house and offer authors 50%. Job done!
Tree Avoidance, Real-Time
Not 'launching', 'continuing'.
Since when do we celebrate 45 years of/since something?
Usual periods for celebration.commemoration are 50 years and each century after the event.
With a special exception of 10 year intervals for marriage.
They are likely working for the Government as part of the research for how to make us believe all the bullshit that the politicians would like to tell us.
I haven't forgotten this - http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/05/29/science_and_maths_knowledge_makes_you_sceptical/
Now the psych boys have to show that they can make us believe this bit of "It's OK" crap.
The actual outrageous deed could have been anything at all for this purpose.
@Craig and AC, Did you miss this bit? - "The company has said that it plans to use Material Design to deliver A unified look and feel across ALL of its products, including phones, the Chrome browser, and even web applications like Gmail."
Can one UI ever really work well in different situations, or is Google having a 'Metro' moment?
Not enough attention to the audio. It's about time that Youtube imposed some kind of standards or at least ratings. Even just running a sound compression / normalisation pass over bad audio would make it at least audible if not comprehensible.
Obviously this is not a good thing to do to music, just for speech, but then music video's are *usually* not guilty of poor sound quality, barring live performance recordings.
After 5 minutes I was wondering if I could be bothered struggling with it for another 90 minutes or so.
The linked article does say that baseboard management controllers provide out-of-band monitoring etc, so the problem is really people not keeping their management network separate or firewalled. Then the protocol can safely be horribly flawed, if no miscreant can access it.
Now that everybody knows US networking kit comes with NSA-ware, whether the manufacturer is complicit or not.
"...that commitment seems like it has repeatedly been watered down."
It's pretty much homeopathic by now.
Let's hope that they didn't use 32-bit unsigned index values or they may find themselves more way-back than they planned!
I know that the FCC was in fact considering encryption on amateur radio, but I don't know how it panned out. Here is a Bruce Perens post on it in 2013 06 26 - FCC Considering Proposal For Encrypted Ham Radio
Strike that, I just found the answer, "No" - http://www.arrl.org/news/fcc-dismisses-encryption-petition
The last time I looked, all that stuff was strung between power poles above ground. Maybe they didn't get the ITU's report on protecting ITC assets against climate change, that advised - "Place telecommunication cables underground where technically and economically feasible, ensuring that they are appropriately protected against water ingress." - http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/04/30/itu_says_it_industry_must_become_resilient_in_face_of_climate_change/
Still 'economically feasible' kills it, can't go spending money on future assets.
"...Its acquisition strategy, the company said, has resulted in duplication, leading M2 to begin a consultation process to identify the roles that will get made redundant...."
Not "a process to identify roles that ARE redundant"
Accidentally told the truth there!
Don't forget Choherent which avoided '...IX' naming entirely. I mad several production systems for TNT using that! - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coherent_%28operating_system%29
"...revenues up by 16 per cent in dollar terms (10 per cent in UK pounds after adjusting for exchange rates)..."
How does changing the units change the percentage increase?
Windows 8.1 Update: The Reboot
I'm hopeful that the demands of the readers for realistic saturated colour comic (graphic novel!) pages might finally get someone to throw serious money into developing decent colour e-ink displays.
I'm impressed that they predicted that that 19 year old would be wearing a beret!
for a bastardised, 2009 vintage, originally optical, interface capable of 10gbps even then in prototype (over 30 metres of plastic optical fibre) with 100gbps promised - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightpeak
Come back with the original and I'll consider it.
If Intel hadn't done a cheaper shonky copper interconnect (promptly taken up as Thunderbolt by Apple, so we know who to blame), I wonder if we would all have a single optical + power interconnect for everything by now (like the Japanese have, but less pricey)?
"...could potentially lead to effective exclusion or discrimination against foreign service suppliers that are directly offering network services, or dependent on them”
Like Australians not being able to see content on Hulu or BBC web sites when they are supposedly promoting globalisation (so long as they can squeeze more cash from us). It's not like we don't buy a ton of their TV content in the first place, what's so hard about a bit of licencing?
I really think that a lot of overseas web sites don't remotely deserve being allowed to use "www.".

Bra Swell, eh? More for the implanted than embedded market then.
I do hope they aren't making inflated claims just to keep abreast of the competition.
