NSA: We'll delete the evidence of our crimes, just as soon as you look away
autocomplete in search fields = send more data to Google or others
Readability in sunshine is one of the major benefits of e-ink. They will probably have a coating that reduces readability, but the technologies involved have advanced since Kindle 1.
But seriously, who will be the first to hack these?
You just won the Rotting Wooden Twig of Fail.
*downloading 400 GB intensifies*
I notice a big Texan engaged in a drive-by downvote.
The incident has caught Congress' attention. Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX), chairman of the US House of Representatives' Committee of Science, Space, and Technology, has issued a formal request for details of the case, saying the matter is of "great concern."
Mr. Anti-Science Science Chairman smells blood/meth in the water/air, prepares to pounce with budget-cutting axe.
The most courageous use of the new gTLDs yet.
The address is meaningless and has been meaningless ever since search engines like Google got good enough to find quality content related to keywords. Now people don't even think about addresses. You do it right, you are using a search engine, an in-browser history search, or hyperlinks.
It's like giving an advantage to a certain IP range. How about nope.
Too bad we can't get a new square iPad nano, put a wristband on it, and wear it as a cheap Apple Watch
iPhone = NSA tracking device
iPod touch = maybe not much of a tracking device especially if Internet access is turned off
Stay down, SourceDice scumbags.
The "Other" segment itself doesn't look particularly lively, though. Its revenue of $1.70bn was up a respectable 6.8 per cent from the same period a year ago but down 2.6 per cent from Q1. It was the second sequential quarter in a row in which its revenue declined. As always, though, wondering how Google's technology business is performing is just a hobby
Compare that hobby with AMD's $942M.
Moore's law is over! Intel is still king of the hill!
It's hard to be surprised. Shifts to Si-Ge or nanotubes are expected to keep chips shrinking. Cheaper EUV is needed to make these nodes easier.
Forget about when we will shrink to 3 to 7 nm. The real questions are about 3D STACKED CHIPS THAT AREN'T TOO HOT. If we can do it with NAND, maybe we can do it with CPUs.
It's less of a tracking device.
It could be like the "island of stability". Very fast decay for most pentaquark/etc based compounds, with a mythical stable configuration yet to be found.
When are we going to see stable "atoms"/molecules/compounds made from unusual quark configurations?
Yup, this is a BS Google scare.
"Pair bluetooth headphones with the watch and you can use it independently of the phones to listen to music you've download to the watch."
It's an iPod Nano!
El Reg, the official tech news rag of #TO2015™.
Does Vine mean 1280x720 for iOS users? 1080p is "Full HD".
"none of that laundry list fits into any recognised mental illness pattern"
"Looks to me like an old-fashioned psychopath"
Although no psychiatric or psychological organization has sanctioned a diagnosis titled "psychopathy", assessments of psychopathic characteristics are widely used in criminal justice settings in some nations, and may have important consequences for individuals.
wot's that, some kind of "crime"?
>He avoided a stretch behind bars after the court heard the teen suffered from a mental illness at the time of the web assaults, had dropped out of school and shunned his family, but had later showed "complete and genuine remorse."'
It's a true defense. At least 2/4 to 3/4 of it anyway.
Getting cuffed at 16 probably helped too. He picked the right time to go black hat, and can expect a lucrative career in the cyber realm soon, making more money than you make.
And there's another number floating around: 32 million current, former and prospective federal employees potentially compromised.
Archuleta couldn't handle the mess.
If you work for Hacking Team, reply right here.
"Let a thousand flowers bloom," Postel was keen on reciting, meaning that it was not the job of those running the internet's infrastructure to decide in which direction it should grow, only that it should grow unencumbered and in its own way.
Sadly, Postel died in October 1998 and the company that took over his role, ICANN, did not adhere to the same philosophy. It has taken ICANN 17 years to reach the point that Postel and many internet originators wanted to reach within one year. But we are finally there.
Yes, I'm sure Postel wanted to see ICANN grabbing hundreds of millions of dollars in this sudden organic growth of the Internet's infrastructure (totally not a TLD/domain extortion racket).
So what, hotels, conference centers, planes etc. will be signing deals to offer Microsoft's pay-to-access Wi-Fi routers now? Like GoGo inflight interwebz but in more locations? I guess MS saw some high margins and decided to bust into the inconvenience market.
"I cannot wait to see the real close-up images."
You can wait 1 week I say
The ride never ends.
Even worse, it doesn't have QWERTY.
I guess the predictive software makes up for it.
What a world!
It's a mecha
Isn't this like Zune "squirting"?
These e-ink readers are also cheap enough that their strong points and low price point are enough to make you want to get one. You can go cheaper than Paperwhite, and the features from the newer Kindle models seem to trickle down yearly.
More storage would be great for the pure e-readers. 250 KB to 1 MB of text per file is a starting point, but throw in some pictures (generally in PDFs, or perhaps the comic book formats mentioned), and the size per file can climb to 25 to 100 MB. I don't expect many non-comic books to be that big, but some can be (cookbooks for instance).
It's time to double storage to 8 GB at least, and maybe to 16 GB+ to coincide with a switch to color e-ink in a few years.
We will eventually create human children without a proper human womb to grow them in.
As for the learnt behavior, you can try to teach them with robots or sock puppets, or let them start from scratch. Will they have any non-Russian predators?
"Whether or not we should re-introduce an elephant species in its more-or-less original environment? Well, we're talking about the siberian tundra and taiga."
You don't say?
End of days? Nah.
El Reg was doing some pretty serious reporting on Second Life 8-9 years ago. What happened with that?
It is very hard for the Tribunal to remember the names of two organizations.
We hear this meme over and over again, as if it should be accepted.
Is Amnesty International a foreign government? No.
Was it even suspected of a crime? No.
Now we are supposed to accept that the NSA/GCHQ can spy on foreign governments and every citizen of every other government on the world. And when they can't legally spy on their own citizens, they just swap info like it's baseball cards.
How about no. At the very least, try to defund these activities.
The claim that people will die because of this snooping is believable compared to the tripe the US and UK governments regularly roll out.
However one factor may lower the body count: because of the Investigatory Powers Tribunal's little "accident" 10 days ago, the corrected record may reach less people. Some probably tuned out when they heard it was an Egyptian and a South African organization being spied on.
Make fun of the random bot killing while you can, MrDamage.
You are a meatbag that will soon be obsolete.
There is no helium in the Toshiba drive.
HGST's helium drives come with 5 year warranties.
The warranty is 5 years for HGST Helium drives.
This Toshiba drive is not a helium drive.
