"How on earth can a misdemeanor add up to 2 years + $140K ?"
It sounds like they'll use the money to pay for the security upgrade they should have had in the first place.
This is something that our Dear Leaders in the UK would be very interested in for near-future crowd control when the general populace finally realises how they're being fooled. No implants necessary; it'll all be done via your Smartphone. Innit.
Quoting other utility suppliers: "They all say mounting wholesale costs are partly to blame"
Yeah, of course we all know how the electron market is really volatile, and BT obviously haven't bought enough in at the "cheaper" rate.
"power connector is a micro USB connector - they’re quite fragile. There’s no reset button on a Pi, so if you need to reset it then you’ll be abusing that connector quite a lot"
Or you leave the connector in the Pi and just switch it on and off at the mains?

" 'It can also performs dangerous operations' makes no sense"
From the Borat School of Jornalism. Obviolsy.
Slate and Stick? By 'eck.. that sounds like real luxury to me! When I were a lad we'd worn all our limbs to stumps down't t'pit and we had to call out the numbers to a crippled lad in't village who'd add it up for us. Tha knows..
Re: Staff Time
Indeedy .. I often used to use my Sony PSP2 as a wireless thin client and it had Skype bundled as standard. It's surprising what can be achieved with a bit of imagination and a web site formatted for a small device.

The Pr0n industry will love this!
All The Guardian has to do is to ask if the NSA could let them have their backup copy. Nothing works as well as a hidden, taxpayer-funded backup system..
Ah, there'll be a Linux hack in a couple of weeks..
Re: "...another upcoming Steve Jobs movie"
Nah .. I'll wait for version 2.
"it's warning users that if they don’t upgrade soon, hackers will lie in wait each new Patch Tuesday to reverse-engineer a full set of new vulnerabilities"
Ir depends on who those hackers work for, eh? #JustSaying
"I'm still mourning the loss of the AND (+) operator"
Yeah! I really miss that too!
Re: It is really the NSA!
It would be sheer coincidence that when Apple bring out their latest phone (the one with fingerprint recognition) that they (whoever "they" are) would then have been able to tie your location, speed, content, and something that would identify you to high degree of accuracy together.
Actually, this site needs a tinfoil hat icon.
Perhaps they should give it a new name
"Western society increasingly covers real bodies while exposing the plastic perfection at every turn, leading to an explosion in genital plastic surgery, for those who can afford it, and a plethora of issues around self-image for those who can't"
Have you watched pre-9pm trash TV lately? Gok Wan, Embarrassing Bodies, Botched Up Bodies.. Dave and his Chums need to address that first!
Re: Oh dear...
"5 wrong arrests are a tiny price to pay for fighting terrorism"
Unless of course it was 5 MPs who were arrested, then it would be VERY different?
Presumably this'll mean that all those fat bastards on mobility scooters will now be buying these cars because they can carry more cider and pizza.
It's a bit like Uzbekistan cotton - another ethical dilemma (for some). try Googling it.
Makes you wonder
.. why they don't go to Afghanistan? Apart from that naughty poppy crop it sees they have an incredible amount of mineral wealth tucked under all that arid landscape, including tin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daykundi_Province
After all, it's about time we had some payback for all the hard work and expense of subduing and liberating these people!
Re: Round of applause
I'm not sure how small/medium SMEs actually are, but given the price of commodity hardware and the increasing amount of robust DIY cloud software there must be more of an incentive to host your own?
Re: Have and have nots
It's jolly nice that you can afford to live where you do, and your lifestyle is good, but not everyone is as fortunate, often through no fault of their own. Are you an MP by any chance? Or a Council Chief?
You may also be aware that the current government is moving as much of its "services" onto the 'Net and we're all being encouraged to "do it online". Now in Dave and Nick's (and yours) comfortable little world this would be no problem, but if you're stuck in the end of a broadband no-go area you're going to be a bit stuck eh? Of course, no-one in authority considered this and over the next few years we're going to see the fallout.
Developers.. Developers.. Developers.. Developers..
"BlackBerry is actively encouraging Android developers to port their apps"
So why can't Blackberry developers produce some more apps? I know a PlayBook isn't a phone but I came across some pretty horrible examples of sideloaded Android apps attempting to run on something that's not Android, and of course they run very well on Androids.
Unfortunately Blackberry have *still* not got enough developers on board, and the lack of apps that aren't games will be what ultimately kills the company.
.. that having all your documents (of whatever type) in a vendor's cloud will make it that much easier for the alleged Security Services to monitor your data. No need for all those backdoors, dodgy plugins and the knowledge that not everyone installs patches when they're supposed to.
Due to running out of money after the last round of directors' bonuses we couldn't afford to pay the bill for this quarter. We apologise for the interruption to your journey and any inconvenience this may cause. We're attempting to source a couple of buses for you..
Re: But the staff
Maybe it's in response to all those NSA and GCHQ requests
Well i guess if you have a number of laptops in the house it'd be easy for them to use a backdoor to switch the built-in webcam on.
Right now, our Government scares me more than any bomb-backpacking jihadist. They not only watch me, but I pay them to do it!!
Re: No deleting his internet history?
Hey that's a good point - next time I delete an important file or bunch of emails I'll just call up the folks at GCHQ and ask if they can restore them!
Actually, why doesn't the government just promote GCHQ as a kindly SuperCloud with unlimited storage for British citizens' data? We're paying for it after all.
"discounted price" "their enduring popularity"
The 2 phrases that are beloved by punters and loathed by Transport Operators - no wonder there are problems with the system, and no prizes for guessing who loses out.
Re: I'm surprised

As much as the taxpayer can stand, +10%

"people still aren't buying old fashioned film"
Oh yes they are, and Fuji and Ilford are still churning it out. Kodak have lost a *lot* of friends by discontinuing some their finest films
I'd be more inclined
.. to use #ignore ,or, depending how outrageous the claim, #bullshit
Apparently it's different in NK - there is sushi, but you have to catch it yourself and deconstruct the fish. Simples.
Maybe they'll put it next to the Apple equivalent, then punters can choose the right product.
Re: You're not as special as you think you are.
Maybe I'm not "special" right now, but who's to say that I won't be in perhaps 3 months / 3 years when something I said online then becomes a thought crime? Will I suddenly be deemed to be sympathetic to a particular cause?
Will we really, honestly all that PowerPoint shite with the primary-school clip art and tada.wav?
Is it really worth preserving?
Re: Printing is Android's achilles heel
You're not wrong, and Ive the iPad is the same. On my cheapo Chinese tablet I can use the Brother scan and print app just fine, except that it uses shedloads of ink. Compare that with the iPad and I have to send it through some godawful PDF print thing which prints everything in barely-there grey.
One day eh.
Good luck with that then..
I wonder if the Chicago Sun-Times ever sends its correspondents into conflict/war zones? Good luck with trying to explain to the local warlord that "I'm a legit reporter - look at my cool iPhone which not only doubles as my camera /videocam but also my voice recorder". Still at least they'll be able to get in close.
.. they should throw some money at redeveloping that god-awful web site of theirs, then customers could actually maintain their accounts and not have to keep asking "help" desk to reset their login credentials. Bah!
Re: Nothing is secure
"And, frankly, one persons private data on a couple of machines at a residential address are hardly a tempting target for the hacker"
Unless that person happens to be [insert name of head of nation/MP/security service here]. Okay so Cameron lives at Number 10, but our MPs all have private addresses.
In five years..
Apple will have patented iMplants which will be surgically implanted to back-project data onto the retina - in the eye, not the display obviously. They're probably working on it right now, but they can't figure out what to do about the battery or the upgrade path.
And yes, of course someone will buy them..
