Sounds like Nancy Pelosi
According to Fairfax, the government says the treaty text will only be made public after it's been signed.
Sounds like Nancy Pelosi's famous comment on Obamacare.
We have to pass this to see what's in it.
Is the Australian Government taking lessons from the Democrats now?
what else is in the bill
Anytime a bill goes smoothly through Congress there is tones of pork, set asides and hiding agendas.
Where was Icahn when Apple needed money?
He didn't invest in the company when it needed cash. He is what used to be called a sundowner. A tramp who showed up at sundown hoping to get a meal without doing any work for it.
I still don't understand how he has so much power when he has so little stock.
@ Will Godfrey, they were not convicted of rape
They were found guilty of delinquency, hence the two year sentence, until they become adults. This means they are not convicted felons.
This just seems like an extension of the original coverup. This whole deal of covering up for H.S. athletes is very common.
Another article to get you blood pressure above safe levels.
El Reg needs to do a better job of getting their facts straight.
You mean like the old Star Trek episode "A piece of the action"?
Sometimes fiction does mirror reality.
Re: It should be Snowden's head @ Mr. Damage
What war? War has never been declared.
El Reg doesn't seem to have a problem
This is supposedly to stop nasty comments. El Reg doesn't seem to have a problem.
I wanted to make a simple comment on a site and they wanted a google + password. Google wanted my phone number. Not a chance
But at least Facebook made money
Say what you want about Facebook but it was making money at the time of the IPO. Enough to pay the taxes of the employees who had stock and then some. It is now at $47 and change.
Twitter hasn't made money and hasn't come up with a plan to do so.
Can anyone say dot com bust
@AC 8:01 Thanks for the link
Very interesting. Their product will also stop 9mm's. Stopping .22's and .40's is almost useless.
As for the price though check out the price of a good Wall Street level suit. I don't think it is that far off.
Re: Wait a minute @ AC 17:43
Why don't you just hire an American? I have worked with many H1-B visa engineers and I am not impressed at all.
The thing about the H1-B engineers is they are model employees because they are afraid to speak up. 100 hour weeks on straight salary no problem. Overlook a safety issue. Sure. Environmental concerns, not their problem. If they lose their job they 30 days to find a new one or they have to leave the country.
The reason people hire illegal immigrants is because they can treat them like dirt and pay them less. The H1-B Visa employees are only a small step up.
He made a bunch of money off of Netflix
I noticed he didn't ask them to buy back shares.
Re: A little more back ground (What no anti-fox protests?)
Considering how many anti-fox people there are on this site I am surprised I don't see 100 down votes. A lot of us listen to fox because we are more likely to get information instead of bombast.
The commentaries on the youtube link are definitely are definitely more intelligent than the comments about grammar that have been posted here. Not that they make any sense since the original post was deleted by a moderator.
There was a similar case in Steuben Ohio that anonymous also got involved in. The local pop stations use nationally syndicated hosts for the morning shows. It was interesting how many teenage girls called in and supported the guys. There is an error in the story below. They were not convicted of Rape. They were found to be delinquent and sentenced to the youth facility.
Thanks for the link. I will continue researching that.
Down vote for including the dog.
Re: Am I the only American who wants U of M to lose?
No but my Sister is.
@ac 14:31. don't count on it
Couldn't find the later article where the appeals court stated that California laws don't stop at the border.
Am I the only American who wants U of M to lose?
Bringing the whole trailer down and not lending tools just makes them look like a bunch of jerks. They are probably staying in the best hotels too.
Am I the only who noticed the computer was an iMac?
I guess the old Microsoft guys know what a good computer is.
The weather sites are going crazy
Dr. Jeff Masters also said of climate gate " So he hid some data, so what".
The above quote is as well as I can remember but I would say it is 95% accurate.
Beer, because I need one after this nonsense.
Re: The Republican Dream@ecofeco
Oh, you must mean when they ended Slavery and passed the 13th and 14th Amendment.
And the GOP doesn't understand why they lose elections
By no means am I a Democrat, but this just irritates the Hell out of me. This is a budget discussion and it needs to stay on budget issues.
Dodd-Frank bailout fund. This is a legitimate issue considering they are discussing how to spend money they have rather than just printing more.
Net Neutrality?? That is a separate discussion.
Stay focused on the job at hand.
But can he win the America's cup?
The book is just like the furniture in the article.
Pricey. $70 for a used book is high.
Is it because of Ballmer
The Stock Jumped after Ballmer quit. Did this push him to number 1?
But the NSA will have your pictures!!!
OH NO! the NSA will have copies of your favorite pictures!
Hey Apple, why can't you do this?
I just forwarded this to Apple to ask them why they can't make the iPhone here.
This complaint makes no sense
Ok so let us take the tinfoil approach and say this will give the NSA access to my fingerprint. Between previously working for the Government and having more background checks than I can think off, they already have it multiple times.
So it is proprietary, so what? That seems to be the basis of his complaint. All smartphones have a way to enter a password. I doubt they are using the same open source software.
Ok so Apple is pretty much a closed shop. There are other vendors out there. It doesn't mean the NSA isn't deeply imbedded in those too.
You are right a larger screen would be better. It is just that ipads are too bulky to haul around a fab all day. I walk about 7 to 8 miles a day in the fab.
A phone you can clip on to your clean room belt.
i worked for various OEM vendors for over 25 years. Machine Technology Inc, Silicon Valley Group, DNS electronics/ Sokudo. Do you even know what I am talking about?
I am working direct now but all of the vendors I work with come down with their phones and nobody says anything.
Some fabs told us what phones to use because they had repeaters inside the Fab for that carrier. We had phones because they were more useful than pagers. Sometimes we would have to call the factory, it is a waste of time to leave the fab to do that. At first they tried to keep out the camera phones but after awhile they gave up. Too useful. We all signed NDA's anyway. I had access to the control charts which are much more important than a picture of a piece of equipment.
I am sure that there are still some Fabs that don't allow phones. I have supported plenty of sites that did Government work.
Who did you work for, and how long have you been out of the industry?
It is affordable and useful
I am buying a 5S because it has functions I want like a better camera and better processor. I maintain Semiconductor processing equipment and I use my phone constantly for work. Be it videos of how a tool is running, pictures of equipment failure, documentation and procedures.
Go to the iTunes store and look up engineering apps or graphing calculators or any other scientific things you want. With the faster processor they are only going to get better and better.
I plan to write it off on my taxes as a work tool.
If you want just a phone you don't need it. Get the 4s for free with a two year contract or buy somebody else's.
So does it still qualify as a paper airplane?
Does El Reg really think they will get a reply
Is there any reason El Reg thinks MS holds them in any higher regard than Apple?
You are right.
Every place you work has a uniform. It might not be official but it is still a uniform. You weren't wearing the uniform. I have been in the semiconductor industry for thirty five years. How you dress matters. And you don't dress well. The phrase " Hiding behind a tie" was a common comment. People who dressed well were not respected. They dressed well to hide the fact that they couldn't do the job.
I have worked with research managers who wore t-shirts and torn jeans. With his Phd, patents and papers published he could dress any damn well he pleased and he wanted everyone to know it.
Re: Interesting Chips can be made in USA too.
Samsung has a large manufacturing facility in Austin, Tx. Maxim integrated has a fab in San Antonio, Tx that makes a lot of phone chips.
I am not sure where the chips come from for this phone but I wouldn't be surprised if some came from Texas.
Re: Time Is Precious
So do you turn the sound off so the guy in the next stall can't tell your co-workers what you were really doing?
But can it handle a rollover like this.
Re: Cryptonomicon called.
I hate it when I understand an obscure reference like that. I must say I liked the first half of the book and then it got old.
Mines with the "boiler plate" contract in the pocket.
Re: instant fail Sulfuric acid and 50% Hydrogen Peroxide.
AKA Piranha. I used to use it when I had a different job in the Semiconductor industry. It gets very hot and will destroy anything organic. It was used to clean the wafers before certain steps.
By accident one day a worker mixed Hydrofluoric acid with 50% Hydrogen Peroxide instead of Hydrochloric acid. It attacked the ceramic bath but didn't eat through.
How did he mix them up? He didn't speak or read English and grabbed the wrong bottles.
Newegg. Never heard of them
I work with a number of people who work very hard finding the best electronic prices, They compare notes all of the time and I have never heard Newegg mentioned.
Makes me doubt the rest of the survey.
Re: What have the Romans ever done for us? @AC 12:32
Maybe you need to read this book. The only thing the Romans gave us was the modern concept of a standing army.
Bush isn't in office anymore. Deal with it.
It is not inner city. Schools in the area run from 100K to 300k and higher with the new Subdivisions going up.
Yes some of the subdivisions have high crime rates but for the most part it is not bad. I can walk down my street at 2am and no one will bother me.
Let's waste even more money.
The School system is 1.3 Billion dollars in debt. Yes that is a "B" and not an "M". My property taxes are more than a payment on a good mid sized car.
And these kids and idiots made how much we they sold it?
I should be so young and stupid.
Re: But did you damage
One thing Range Rovers can handle is water like this. It is on reason why I never take my Honda Insight out in the rain in San Antonio.
Only my Landrover.
