Cisco is ready to axe workers at its Ubiquisys small cell unit

cupid stunts

“When Cisco moved in they found a product with little useful documentation, no version control and sloppy test procedures,” our source continued. “The due diligence could never match up with the real products.”

And Cisco paid 310 million spondoolies for them? I need to get into the startup business.

AMD looks at sinking sales, gulps: It's worse than we thought

cupid stunts

Re: Pity

Unfortunately 'good enough' may not be good enough here. If I'm looking at a new pc, core i5/i7 jumps to mind. Rightly or wrongly. I suspect it's the same with a lot of pc buyers. I want amd to succeed. I think they need to spend some $s establishing a 'brand' line of chips in the minds of people.

This Changes Everything? OH Naomi Klein, NO

I was broadly in agreement with you until this:

'This is the point at which you should be thinking of Patrick Stewart as Captain Picard doing the facepalm.'

Don't you dare tell me what I should be thinking, I can work it out for myself.

Best Bacon Sarnie in London

Very simple question. Who (cafe/restaurant) does the best bacon sarnie in London?

For this purpose, London counts as anywhere within the M25.

BBC goes offline in MASSIVE COCKUP: Stephen Fry partly muzzled

'The BBC has stayed silent about the continuing glitches. It's been nearly 12 hours since Auntie updated its users about the outage.'

Good. Hopefully that means they're concentrating on fixing the issue(s) rather than web2.0rrea.

Re: "Providers have no reason to retain the data"

'Exactly, so if the government insist on the right to snoop, then they must bear ALL the costs of keeping data beyond the very limited time period that the ISPs may need it'

So by extension, *we* must bear all the cost of allowing our glorious leaders to poke their noses in where it's not required or warranted.

David Cameron wants mobe network roaming INSIDE the UK

Assuming you mean 100 yds. There is a way round that of sorts, in that if you're fairly near a big town, you can get a PAYG sim from $provider_with_mast_in_area.

Would there be a market for a non-network provider to build masts in these hard-to-reach areas, then charge network providers for use?

100% driverless Wonka-wagon toy cars? Oh Google, you're having a laugh

cupid stunts

'A huge amount of trivial human labour....So while it clearly makes sense to have robots doing deliveries...'

Maybe true, but the examples you cite are relatively difficult for Robots to do. Authentication of people can be relatively tricky, depending on the method used. Also how would a robot identify who an 'appropriate' neighbour is, if you're out?
