I think the actors were for filming segments of footage for use during the tour, not presenting the tours themselves.
I did the old tour with two 9-yearolds and I can say they got very bored unfortunately. Definitely not suitable for the younger consumer. I enjoyed it but I did feel it was a little slow in places. There was an element of is/is not colossus viewable today which I found a bit confusing. In the end we saw it.
Changes definitely welcome, but being sensible about it is also welcome.
Re: Tie in ?
I was just thinking the same. Or even if it's a case of I lose functionality because I don't have the "right" phone. I can't stand paying for something that I can't use. Hopefully it will be a dealer option, especially on the Merc.
Personally, I think the reason PC sales have flat-lined is because the requirements of your average home user hasn't changed in years. Surfing, social networking, youtubing, etc... all fine on a 4+ year Laptop. If you are not too bothered about HD content, you can go back even further. The one I use is 2 years old and I have never had it using more than 50% CPU. (Granted it is using a quadcore i7)
Using Ubuntu Desktop, by the way.
I was pretty sure that Ubuntu makes a strong showing in Google's offices.
I agree with the first commentator (upvoted). You shouldn't plan to have more than one RC, although you can have as many as you like.
According to wikipedia... "A release candidate (RC) is a beta version with potential to be a final product". If you are planning to have three of them, then numbers 1 & 2 can't be a potentially final product". I am not saying Wikipedia is gospel, but it's my understanding of the term and I would suggest the understanding of the first commentator. If nothing else, the name - "Release Candidate" - should give the game away.
Hmmm 8 downvotes. Harsh.
Well, if BT subvert DNS, then I am glad I don't use them and never will.I didn't imagine an ISP would do that.
Shame on them, not shame on me.
If it's using DNS, then Ubuntu users from 12.04 onwards won't be "protected" as Ubuntu uses its own local DNS server, as far as I know. Maybe different in later versions.
Re: I wish we ran on RHEL (or any GNU/Linux for that matter)
"When we get new customers and they are on RHEL or whatever, they have to install Windows."
I am surprised you get new customers that are on RHEL, in that case.
Culture can only change from within in my opinion, so keep at it and good luck!
"In the months ahead, other courts, no doubt, will wrestle to find the proper balance consistent with our constitutional system."
Months? American courts? He's hopeful.
Re: And why aren't they going after this group??
The entire UK police force is too tied up with investigations of investigations of investigations about plebgate.
Ahmen to that!
Well. if Apple thought they could issue a killer blow to Samsung's mobile aspirations, it is coming all too late.
Surely, the outpouring is also travelling in the direction of the spin at the point it left the influence of the object itself? So a spiral effect could be reduced to a point of being not visible to the naked eye?
Just guessing. Might be bollocks.
Obviously the author should of interviewed Bezo's wife for the book.
...which two companies are most of the probation services going to be outsourced to? Just for fun.
Incidentally, some probation staff are/were on strike about that very thing today.
Re: Slave labor is big business in the USA
Slabe labour or simply repaying one's debt to society? Or even just repaying the high cost to keep them in prison?
Mythical man month...
... only really applies when the people in situ know what they are doing but they are just doing it too slowly. Now, if you have a bunch of fuckwits in-situ (no idea if that is the case) , then getting non-fuckwit people in can only help. Of course, if it has just been designed badly, then neither fuckwits nor non-fuckwits will be able to fix it.
This trolley with sweets on it... I bet there weren't any Kitkats on it.
Just for the record, I won'r be buying BackBerry and that is because it doesn't fit with my strategy.
Just incase you were wonderin'.
I am wondering what the taxi drivers will make of this (there are enough of them in Milton Keynes.)
"anyone remember the early days of Slackware?"
Pretty much every longtime linux user. Ah, how I miss recompliling the kernel just to get the network card to work, etc, etc...
I've enjoyed reading these articles to a point, but you know when you start reading them that they are always going to end in tears. To read about the sweat and tears and knock-backs as all a bit heart-breaking.
I think secureboot is permanently on on RT tablets. I don't know if the secureboot can be gotten around on the RT tablet. Other tablets are available.
If stuff was being bought at an inflated price, then surely that's the buyer's fault, not the seller?
Arse-pocket shaped would be much better.
Re: 5S and 5C impressive for different reasons
You mean like Google's face recognition... sometimes I pick the phone up and it naturally unlocks when it catches glimpse of my handsome visage.
Re: "Document-oriented" database?
Exactly how Lotus Domino stores stuff, it would seem.
All I can say is....
try dealing with LMBCS
apple should buy more of its own shares... Icahn's shares, to be exact.
Maybe because MS jumped in bed with Arm, Intel feels they should look-around for themselves.
Takes me back to the late Nightees when lots of software used to do underhand things like this.
Just because you can trust the software doesn't mean you can trust the hardware, so unless both software and hardware were "open" and verifiable, then surely you are still at risk, even with open software.
I think it was Carl Sagan that said something like "If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you first have to invent the universe."
I use free and open software out of choice, but I am no fanatic.
At the prices Apple charge, I would expect the phones to be jewel-band.
As the icon says...
To be far, I am not sure if devaluing a cert is a good move, either. You'll surely piss off the people that got it when it was at its hardest.
Interesting to see that MS sees its educational budget as another marketing budget. They should be paying people to do their exams, then shouldn't they?
I would guess it was something along the lines of having previous for drink/drive or similar.
Same old, same old.
I think the dual boot point is totally lost in the article.
I read the dual boot aspect as...
"Try Ubuntu as a phone platform and y'know what if you don't like it or no one does any apps for it, you have an awesome Android phone for not much money." Far less of a gamble for people than Ubuntu only.
"Liquid Metal". What's the phone's model number.... T-1000?
If he makes parole in 11 years, one might consider that a result, given he was looking at 90 years or even the death penalty.
Slow news day...
She talks about being burgled and not being able to stay in the house another night.
Well, we were burgled. And we stayed in that house that very night... and every other night after that. It was our house and its where we lived - no burgler was going to take that from us.
If the NSA get round to having the tech and the will to decrypt my emails, then all I can say is I hope they enjoy the cat pictures.
And not releasing for tablets because that might eat into the Surface sales?
Nothing to worry about on that front, MS.
"If companies implementing standards cannot rely on FRAND commitments," ... "they will be less likely to participate in standard setting, which will drive up costs for consumers and reduce the pace of innovation."
And when companies find their patents undefendable just because it's part of standard, you might find those companies less likely to participate in standard setting.
Surely the Reg didn't reject us because we used a bit of sarcasm against an article? If you applied the same principle to the articles themselves, you'd have nothing to publish!
Yeah, this was my second attempt. I re-read the house rules and I couldn't see what was wrong with it. I added "Oracle" and resent and hoped for the best.
Breaking News, Read all about it - Oracle website maintenance performed.
That struck me too. Have an upvote.
I am with you on this. He has a vision and the means to realise it. I can't imagine why anyone would knock him for that, even if you don't agree with it.
