Re: I have heard the movies on that site are a bit saucy
Indeed, 69 varieties of sauce.
Get mine too while you're over there.

But if you use your left hand it feels li...I'll get my coat.
Although their numbers are impressive, I would bet they have a huge amount of electronics, megapixels, and CPU power that would never make it into a real car, where every milliwatt counts. Furthermore, I would guess most of their efforts is towards a technology demo - making it into a product is not an easy job, as electronics and code needs to be made failsafe, handle all the edge cases (what happens when you get snow on your camera, for instance) and all these other boring aspects that Google never seems to be very good at.
Read ISO 26262 and MISRA-C guidelines, for instance, if you need an antidote to the Google hype.
Most Japanese phones come with a full Felica chip, not a cut-down basic NFC like Apple, so have more smarts. I use my phone as my season ticket and ad-hoc rail ticket, to buy my morning coffee at a convenience store, and can easily either set it to refill from my credit card automatically, or manually with a quick password entry on a phone app. I just say "SUICA" at the checkout, the staff press the right button on the till, and a quick bonk and it's all over with no drama.
Fortunately, http://homeopathyisnot.science is still there!
http://www.ITaughtTaylorSwiftHowToGiveHeadToMy.horse is still available
"We're sorry. You appear to be in a country where Google Domains is not yet available.
You may search for domains, but you will not be able to purchase a domain unless you have a U.S. billing address. Learn more"
I then looked up my own domain, and it recommended ".kitchen", ($30/y) ".maison" ($50/y) and ".glass" ($30/y) along with the usual com/net/org options. No thank you. Although I might cybersquat on http://www.theregister.pub...
Perhaps Hershey's should use the following warning label:
Hershey's chocolate. WARNING: This product may not contain chocolate.
Regardless of the power button placement, buttons for gears means you have to take your eyes off the road, although with an automatic I suppose gearshifts are minimal.
Oh well, at least their UI designers resisted the urge to implement gear changes by tracing the appropriate H pattern on the touchscreen.
The NORKs did this, basically, last year:
"another [...] depicted US soldiers and President Barack Obama burning in the flames of a nuclear blast."
I didn't know that Zuckerberg went to Harvard, but I read that question as meaning "Which was the first university to have an official public presence on Facebook?" not "Which university's students was Facebook first made available to?"
As the task gets closer to being complete, the colour changes then, as the diagram in the story suggests, there is a sub-display that shows, for example. how behind schedule a task might be.
I can see it being moderately useful for project planning - for instance, highlighting something is, say, 20% behind schedule with only 10% of the allotted time left but not highlighting when 20% behind but still 60% of the time left.
Whether it is patentable, of course, is a completely different argument.
I'll probably get depressed if I search, but I suspect their new line will be "Fookooshimar Fallout caused the virus to mutate!"
Not to give it to my granny for her to wear.
Just this week I moved up to the Tokyo region, so needed to pay my train commute. Rather than spend 500 yen to buy a Suica card (Oyster equivalent) I downloaded a Suica app to my Android phone, charged 3,000 yen to my card via carrier billing, and Bobbu-san was my uncle.
Penguin as the Suica mascot is one.
She HHoffered HHer HHonor, HHe HHonored HHer HHoffer, so all night long it was HHon HHer and HHoff HHer.
...it doesn't quite work right yet? I'd put my money on the second, as reviews I have seen have said that people were allowed to wear it, but it only ran a looping demo.
At Japanese rounders games in Osaka Kyocera Dome, you can summon a beer-bearing bird via an app that uses Bluetooth LE in your seat to locate yourself.
(In Japan, baseball stadiums have beer girls who wander the stands with a barrel on their backs, ready to serve those in need of refreshment.)
Surely a better headline?
I thought you meant Father Jack - now that would really be fecking awesome!
Just checked the US6788199; in the introductory summary blurb it says:
> The transceiver, also referred to as a tag, is battery powered
Oops. US7148801 also mentions that there is "usually a battery" with active RFID tags. Therefore neither patent involves the battery-free concept. There could, of course, be a pending application, but...
A couple of years ago I read a story in the Telegraph (?) where the reporter was the human control for the Turing Test. The thing I noted as odd was that they were primed to pretend to be a computer, so it was really more a test of which was better at pretending to be what they weren't.
It's amendment 19 of the US Constitution that she's swearing on, which is about female suffrage.
Quite ironic, though, since she was appointed, and on the basis of her being a big fundraiser.
I don't think Visa would claim that "only" one in five fraudulent card uses are undetected or Lloyds that "only" one in five bank robbers got away with the swag, and of course the other 4 out of 5 have disappeared empty-handed into the ether or alternatively came back the next four days to see which would be their lucky day.
Given that Japan has had smileys for so long, there will be no need for text speak; I predict it will be either:
INCOMING! *frowny face* *mushroom cloud* *pile of poo*
Or the option for Shibes:
So ronery. Much boom. Wow.
Dogecoin is going to the moon!
Browsing Google+ (yes, some people do actually use it!) I find rather a lot of animated GIFs that appear to take up a lot of bandwidth, and also have a habit of autoloading. I always feel that said GIFs are actually larger than the video stream they were built from...
All he needs to do is mention his modalities and how his parents were killed in a plane crash.
Your's In Christ
I expect, indeed I will be disappointed by the lack of foresight by the scammers if it doesn't happen, to see a story on El Reg on the 8th talking about evil redirects and fake popups appearing on XP users' computers mimicking the illustrated message box.
I also expect El Reg to publish a bunch of pics of the message box on ATMs, traffic signs, supermarket tills etc, etc.
That's water levels on site, as would have been obvious if you hadn't used "..." to omit that information, and of course, who would be drinking on-site water anyway? Japan's standards for drinking water is 10 becquerels per litre of cesium, lower than most of the rest of the world.
Presumably Mrs Slocombe was upset because the person ran off with Glass video of her stroking her pussy.
"He's not dead, he's just pining for the fjords"
The rest of the world includes South Korea and Japan, both of which are downwind of China, and indeed here in Osaka, Japan today we got our first-ever PM2.5 warning to avoid going out without a mask.
Here's a PM2.5 site - as you can probably guess, red and black markers are not good!
As is the recording light, the main reason being to prevent upskirt photos and other pervie behaviour.
Funnily enough, a recent survey found that at least one in five smartphone photographers here use silent cameras apps.
...I would bet that when you get to the PC login screen it sends an SMS/IM to your registered phone, which picks this up and switches on your microphone - it's not going to be constantly listening.
Furthermore, it would make sense to also have a configuration option whereby you could also require your phone to be unlocked before the app activates.
"I'm the world's fastest queuer for the iPhone 6, and I've got email in English from Brazilian and UK news sites. Wish me luck as I have to reply..."
It's all a bit slangy, so no wonder Google Translate falls down.
And can I suggest an NSFW tag on his Twitter feed as he is now showing his chocolate willy there.
Olleh would appear to be KT's (Korea Telecom?) brand:
In Japanese, but relatively easy to understand:
8 GB RAM seems generous, and 4 USB 3.0 ports, 1920x1080 15.6 inch screen, and 10.5 hour battery life.
Keyboard is 18.4mm keypitch and 3.0mm keystroke (travel?)
According to their own web store, with a 10% discount coupon it is a pension-abusing 197,820 yen, or just a tad under 1,200 quid.

It reminds me of an old joke:
A woman walks into a psychiatrist's office and says, "My husband's crazy! He thinks he's a chicken." The quack says, "Why don't you bring him in to see me?" "I would but I need the eggs."
Almost all the major air conditioner brands do in fact now have infra-red sensors in them to detect when people look hot or cold. And Sharp's Cocorobo (Roomba-alike) speaks to you and will on command trundle over to the air conditioner to switch it on and off.
"Here I am, brain the size of a planet, and they ask me to turn down the aircon. Call that job satisfaction?"
Suck the poison out and whatnot.
A FaecesBook puppy-fancier commented "I've not used it before but the thought of wiping up with paper covered in butter is a bit off-putting, yet intriguing."
The recollection of stories and rumours from my youth about "butter dogs" (I don't recommend Googling it) popped up on reading that...
Maybe it's like the stupid IRC trick of telling the newbie to hold the ALT key then press F4 to activate the sekrit menu?
Shouldn't we be talking about overriding the GPS signal to guide it safely to our own destination? If the Iranians can do it with a military drone, it shouldn't be much problem to knock up a Raspberry Pi-based solution?
This seems like a great variation on the crane game - shoot one down, win a mystery prize if it doesn't shatter into millions of pieces on hitting the tarmac.
Black helicopters as I reckon they'll need the armed escorts.
