Thicker ice is a sign of increased temps
Get Ready for some tin pot science
Re: Ah Sun Microsystems!
Sun never made the move from a bespoke systems supplier to a generic box shifter, you could argue that Linux and generic boxes killed Sun, but that would be too simplistic.
That leaves us with a problem that economics simply cannot solve .
China solved it by fixing their currency values so the labour and material values stay the same.
Re: nice surface
maybe they were to tired to think of anything
The rover is seems to have a better surface than most of the roads in blighty.
Win Win for Ireland
If they are forced to Tax Apple say...20% then they get $billions, if they don't they still get 2% for doing dam all.
"But, smugglers are not only reporting fewer sales"
Make me laugh. read it as "Butt smugglers"
My gran had that very sore looking
1.2Kg ..about the size of a kebab
Well What did they expect
They stop them hacking in for direct access and now they have to service every request.
What they need is a good SPY_API framework
How can you have subsidies of WE ARE ALL THE SAME COUNTRY
Use a Brick
Never fails to gain quick entry to a car. Not unless the neds/chavs are getting more tech savy these days
Legless twice on the same flight impressive
I was once on a plane to Turkey a few years ago when a two legged women got drunk and tried to open the door at 35,000ft and pished herself (must have been the pressure). Turned out she was banned from flying for doing the exact same thing the previous year. I thought I'd never she her again as she's be spending sometime in a nice Turkish prison. Turned out she was on the return flight after a great holiday and was again pissed.
Humans Next Step Hobbits ?
Well can only dream of a 3 breakfast society
Hats off to a stunning acheivement
Well done mate!!!
About time it had a quick reboot then !

Its Dead Jim!
Pity the app is wearing a red security top and never seen before
Re: Friends ?
Pppssttt...... EVERYONE is spying on EVERYONE else, even the Germans are releasing malware for they own spying purposes.
It's not spying that the issue its getting caught.
It's always Berlin what gives Threadstone issues.
there's a reason why semiconductor engineers like beer so much.
Because it tastes sooooooooooo nice and makes coding easier, well it did when I was a student, a jnr, a dev and a lead.
What ARE you talking about ?
What Steve Jobs didn't invent this
Come on he must have sent secret messages from beyond for this one.
I wonder if the hard grafting apple engineers ever got a bit annoyed with Stevie putting his mark on all the patents.
your guilty until you prove otherwise.
Re: Just how inedible are seabirds really?
They are still eating in many parts of the world, including Scotland, where we cover them in batter and deep fry them (ok I made the last bit up, we eat them raw).
Almost any salary in London is really not nearly enough to live on.
"He also agreed not to try to poach AWS staff for that six-month period, too."
Is there not a class action for agreements of not poaching staff between tech firms. I think this is bit heavy handed on Amazon part. This also would not fly in UK/EU.
Q: So how do we win the next election?
A: Well we give FB $100m and with use 50% increase in cat videos to our targeted demographic, showing bad news to the maybes.
Q: Will that really work?
A: Worked last time.
...and then try to run SCADA system on Windows machines - just how many points of vulnerability do you need?
Any OS is full of holes.
Re: Not Too Bad
Nope it was me, speed reading it seem is not my forte
Not Too Bad
Well at least they can still get porn,
Has you PC Speakers never chattered with Mobile phone interference ? This is the phone inferring with a subsystem within the PC (TV or radio) most likely the sound card. Now if you could develop this so it developed a buffer overrun on the sound system you might be able to inject data or code into the computer its self.
You also have to remember that Mobile phones are computers with a very broad RF broadcast range; so if you can find a common or range of common subsystems that can be targeted that chances are that they use the same chipsets such as USB, BlueTooth, Wifi, Ethernet. Just because they is no configuration of a sub system (eg network, wifi, IR) does not mean it is not powered, working and more importantly service by the OS.
Also think of other attack vectors such as a picture on a web site can inject code in to the client OS (very common).
First AC then DC so you get ACDC
Re: I want a robot......
I want a robot to key an eye on my first robot.
Mixed Views on this
Not good for lowly paid home helps (no job)
Good as I don't have to move to get a beer
I may never have to hover again
But maybe we should be getting more active not less.
Remember the first law of Robotics.....make money
So Self Patching Systems
How easy will a self patching system turn into its own denial of service attack.
How about adverts for.....
"Apple Powered By Microsoft (for now until we can ivent something better)"
iFanboys will be cheering until the next update. When they will be told to cheer something else.
Re: Stuff it can't hope to deal with
Cycle nearly ever day through a busy city as well as doing long country runs and mountain biking, and I'm also a motorcyclist. With drivers you can eye ball them and make eye contacts.
Stuff it can't hope to deal with
Drunks on road at 11pm
Buses / Taxis the raptors of the road
Filtering Motor Cyclists
Car Jackers; it will politely stop and open the doors, its the safest option
Trucks using the right hand lane to turn left
How will it know to stop for police or just pull over
Ambulances wanting past and you have to bump up on kerb
Will it think flash bike lights are the police ??
old tech Reg
can't you get "invent" an app and suck up all the data from the mob, meeting in person is soo old hat!
Someday the gravy train of climate warning will come to an end.
I am skeptic of warming NO!
I am believer of the bad science and doom mongering to generate research funds... YES!!!
What do you expect....
If you eat humans, there are a lot fatter than they were 60years ago.
Re: "...4.5 billion years ago...” Ramirez said. “A lot of things can happen in that amount of time.”
"brown dwarfs, which will burn for 10s of billions of years, but are hard to see because of their comparative dimness."
Even the sun has some dim cousins .....
Why make older cheaper 4's when you can make some very expensive 6's in the pre-launch ramp
Re: reason Apple scoops so much of the industry's profit
"Apple stuff is supported for longer and tends to get used or passed on an used for years."
Eh....No this is complete rubbish. Apple do selective upgrades so your older iPads / Macs can't install any of the software / apps in their store. The older versions of which will work on this kits is not available on their app store.
What is the World says "No"
Governments around the world make a very healthy income selling RF space to mobile companies;. And what if the said governments don't want an effective spy network over their lands.
The current Tory government in blighty (no its not a coalition, if you think it is; your just kidding yourself on) will no doubt say "YES" as Google has better access to no 10 than the current Tech gov department.
Does having your phone automatically login in twitter even if you don't use it count as an active user?
But.... Is it Giant Kitten Proof ?
You never know when a giant kitten is going to climb your post office tower.
How about a real waterproof jacket that doesn't cost £300+
