One Part of the Article is Wrong
Turbines require less maintenance, and are more reliable than piston engines, typically by at least a factor of 10.
Could I have that translated please?
What is the American equivalent of "right munter?
Well, They May Be Right On This One
IT is famous for over promising on schedule cost and savings.
So, a Dot Com Crash Profiteer Has Been Made a NASA Advisor
Oh, this has epic fail written all over it.
You Have No #@$ing Idea How Hard it is For Me Not to Swear About This
Microflaccid's ribbon really REALLY sucks.
How Do I Short This Idea?
Seems to be to have been tried, and failed about a gazillion times now.
I understand that Symentec is a computer company, and what the word "goodwill" means, but this appears to lose all meaning when the two are juxtaposed in a single article.
I'm Shocked to Discover that There Is Gambling Going on in This Establishment
Your winnings sir....
I call BS too
Too much current required at 110v single phase.
Well, if they get the patent,
Then patent trolling becomes prohibitively expensive for other patent trolls.
A Tempest in a D-Cup?
What can I say....Men are pigs.
AOL Drops Usenet?
The endless September is finally over!
Ummm...He Might Be Roman
There is a school of thought that believes that Arthur was a Roman, and that Avalon was in fact what we now call Avignon, France.
So How Many Gig is the Download
Acrobat Reader has become so bloated.
At Some Point, A Network of PS3s Will Solve the Big Bang
Seriously, the GPUs our there are beginning to look like super computer nodes.
You are missing a point.
Specifically that this was concealed from it's users, that they are still lying about it, and that it effects other applications, Lotus Notes for one.
If they have a problem, the sensible solution is to improve their (pretty crappy) network architecture in the long term, but in the short term, they need to have a competent strategy (phony packets ain't it), and they need to be straight with their customers.
I have this image of some bird done up in a Goldfinger getup.
This is bat%$#@ insane.
When you look at those cases, like that poor school teacher in Connecticut sentenced to jail for basically having a spyware infected computer, and the fact that it's law enforcement who doesn't get the basics of how a compute works and screws it up, this is insane.
This is like requiring that the person performing the autopsy to be a cop.
They don't need to be a cop, they need to be a pathologist.
No Bribery Involved That's for Sure!
After all, we know that the Nigerian government, and Nigerian business are among the most scrupulously ethical in the world.
It's clear that Microsoft has been throwing around like a sailor on leave.
I'm waiting for the underwear version
And then the "Porn Star" play at home game.
Can you say patent troll?
Good, I knew you could.
Actually, it is the job of the Supreme Court
And the patent court to evaluate patent standards against the constitutional reason given for patents and copyright, "to promote the useful arts and sciences."
This Report is Self-Serving Contractor Agitprop
What happened was good, old fashioned mission planning and intelligence.
This is a defense contractor feeding a story out to generate business for themselves.
The Israelis determined where the sites were, how and when they operated, and set up the strike accordingly. Much less high tech than BAE's "Suter".
As to high tech, I would remind everyone that that F-117 Stealth Fighter that got shot down over Yugoslavia happened because it flew the same route, at the same time, 3 days in a row.
I go into this at http://40yrs.blogspot.com/2007/10/interesting-if-flawed-analysis-of.html
I want the recipe
Seriously. It's a true 5 alarm sauce.
Yet another Bull#$@! Patent Helping the Big Guys
IP is there to promote the useful arts and sciences, not to maintain monopolies.
IP law is out of bloody control.
You Know That This Will Be a Force For Evil
It will be a way to make people attend teleconference meetings while doing Yoga.
Yet another sanctuary done away with.
Lefties are Craxy, huh.
Well that explains why my left-handed wife married me.
You are wrong
You say, "the income generated by the levy has been negligible because AHRA does not apply to the new generations of technology, including personal computers and MP3 players."
There has been negligible income because the levy, and the mandatory copy protection technology, killed the digital tape recorder by making media and hardware too expensive, and reducing sound quality.
Story Misses the Big Point
It's that the 3 Dorges Dam is a bloody ecological disaster.
If this Were any more clever
You could put a tail on it and call it a weasel!
It's not about prudery.
It's about meatspace casinos and state run lotteries not wanting competition.
A Backdoor to Hardware DRM?
Just wondering if this is a back door to getting DRM hardware installed on people's machines.
I would think that this technology might very well be a way of locking down machines at a later date, so that people can't back up DVDs and CD (and there is that whole Bit Torrent thing).
This Article is Better Than the One In Aviation Week
In that article, the writer drew analogies between ion and Star Trek, because both drives glow blue.
