This is wireless charging with fruity lock-in
Inductive resonant coupling? Sounds an awful lot like a radio style tuned circuit so they'll not be able to do it for at least two reasons...
s/without/with/ financial penalties <-- oops
Yeah but we don't need a press which demonises innocent members of the public who were in the wrong place at the wrong time, chases and hounds people even when they're on holiday just because they're shiny in some way (royal, rich, famous, ginger, etc).
We need a press with integrity instead of cynically pandering to the lowest common denominator and without painful financial penalties to ensure it's literally not _worth_ risking publishing drivel and bullshit they will continue to churn out dross to the slack-jawed dribbling masses that seem to inhabit the UK these days, all the the expenses of someone else's misery & suffering, usually.
What you're on about by the Tony Bliar example would be an 'overriding public interest' and I'm fairly sure that would get by a judge, although perhaps not MI6...
Kate Middleton's tits, however, are not.
As ever it's down to money, so kick em in the pockets cos if it isn't (literally) worth publishing something they won't.
'When I become PM' I'll introduce penalties such as
Oh and when you leave school it's to do further education, an apprencticeship or the bloody army, in an effort to stem the tide of feckless lackwits.
"I would like to express my gratitude for the detailed and diligent work of Lord Leveson in creating this report and now that the obligatory report-making hoop has been jumped through we can toss it aside and carry on with business as usual with a few vague rumbles of agreement on some of the points raised."
My new Samsung series 6 TV is pretty good, really, excellent picture, very skinny and so on.
Niggles being... remote control shoulda been bluetooth and have a trackball/qwerty mode and the DLNA isn't really DLNA, they Microsofted it so you need to run a Sammy meeja player on a PC. Epic fail, that one.
Though my XBMC Raspberry Pi handles all my media with elan via my Android phone as a remote anyway
And Zen, the big round 'puter also from Blake's 7 IIRC
Plus companies like to promise ridiculous timescales, figures and other things to simply get a big name customer onto their books by hook or by crook.
That's direct sales of Amazon-provided items as opposed to stuff that comes from Amazon via Billy Boggin's Amazon 'shop'
That would sound more like that figure, maybe.
What clown would ever downvote the suggestion that an artist is paid solely and directly for their own work?
Maybe the MAFIAA are trolling El Reg.
Well, yeah, but Cubby Brocoli's family won't personally sell me a Bond Box set for Xmas...
... will they?
I did buy How To Destroy Angels' latest 'An Omen' release direct from the HTDA site on principle.
Buy Second Hand. Starve them of revenue.
1. If you are an business of at least a certain size, or operating under the brand of a business of a certain size you are required to have a registered UK branch and offices.
2. If your turnover vs profits quotient is less than 1% (say) then you're not allowed to claim back your VAT.
So, it'll cost you your VAT clawback to cheat the HMRC by claiming your outputs are really close to your inputs when you're a known large organisation (or a convenient subsidiary of one) which is raking in money but claiming it all has to go to the licensor of the brand you claim to be under.
You get the idea, I'm far from an accountant which is why I pay for real ones ;o)
Friday pint for everyone
Before they make that 'theft', too.
Which is why I never use torrents.
Even though I only ever hear of people being nicked for it rather than ever knowing anyone nicked for it.
Still don't get why the MAFIAA are going after the downloaders rather than the seeders/providers of the files. I guess it's easy to punish customers as they're in the same jurisdiction as you, normally. Is it now an offence to download (C) material as well as distribute it in the USA or if they spot your IP on a torrent swarm do they just punt out a scary letter in the expectation you'll roll over thinking you're bang to rights.
$60 a month? Feck.
I just ordered Fibre upgrade and that's just £20 (~$32) a month for 40MBit plus around £14 (~$22) for the phone line and I have no problems with either the ISP or the phoneline.
And UK is usually expensive compared to many other countries, to boot. Perhaps not.
Have a pint by way of consolation.
Why does that fill me with no confidence whatsoever...
Something Microsoft would never do over something like maybe Android phones with mystery IP in them.
I wonder if they make around $4Bn a year from that trolling they'd never do.
All those inconvenient scientists LP keeps linking to, I guess they're all froth-mouthed denialist heretic lunatics too.
If nobody questioned anything then we'd all still be banging rocks together in caves. Which is presumably what ended the last ice age, I suppose, cos, you know, it couldn't possibly just be nature could it.
Pint for TeeCee for being willing to assume climate heresy might not actually be heretical.
Presumably all the delegates will be walking to Doha from wherever they are, not driving around in V8 limos/4x4s and definitely not running any aircon or having ice in their drinkies while they're there.
Because, you know, to fly there, be picked up in a luxury motor and then retire to their aircon hotel rooms with a Montrachet in a bucket of ice would be, well, disingenuous.
That is all.
Biting the hand that feeds you
But yeah. money going one way or another.
Do you think this will be covered on the BBC?
Aliens will just think we have a twin moon, natch ;o)
But I'd put a fiver on a deep-space quantum-entangled probe relaying data almost instantaneously.
Who the fuck ever thought they'd hear a phrase like that spoken seriously in their lifetime, too?
Don't let the facts stop you foaming at the mouth for some free publicity
Given the price tablet makers bend customers over for on flash memory I'd think he had a reasonable expectation for 80% of that storage to be usable at least. Losing half of it does seem unduly excessive.
Nobody 'gave' him 32GB memory though, did they. He paid for it in the price of the device.
I think even you would be pissed off if you paid for a 1TiB hard disk and found you could only use 512GiB of it.
You confused, innumerate prick.
If it's his IP it's his right to do wtf he fancies with it, surely?
But not anyone else's right.
After all when you have to pay for a Gold account to access your already-paid-for SKY/Lovefilm/Netflix/etc accounts how is it going to be any other way.
The XBOX actually got turned on over the weekend after about a year... because Halo4 isn't available on PS3
When they have the R35 ??
Can Sammy now put that on stuff? Can imagine a certain irked fruitmonger if they could
'Buddy Jesus' perhaps as in 'That's karma for ya' ?
For stuff like MAFIAA activities, censorship, etc...
Perhaps the old Monopoly face-behind-bars jail image or a taped-over mouth, etc
For, well, when various states/organisations are riding into people's metaphorical towns shootin' their sixguns in the air...
My first thought.
Greenwashing your information for you.
UK business owners are writing to Ed Quilty to seek guarantees of indemnification against any actions brought against them should this make its way into law.
If not, perhaps they should be.
That's Karma for ya.
Unsubstantiated but someone in the office today was saying apple had been told to fork out for sammy's legal costs in the appleogy-gate proceeding because of their overly childish approach to it all...
Anyone else heard this?
Which cannot now be trusted to be 'impartial', presumably.
Agreed. Remember though, a clip round the ear is assault and that'll get you thrown in chokey.
Which is why we have Chavs...
Perhaps if the kid were a soldier it'd be OK...
Just like it's OK for Omid Djalili to make jokes about Iranians but not for me.
Hopefully his lawyer will tell him to claim it was an act of protest against war and the CPS will have to sod off and find some real criminals to prosecute.
Or just as likely, Apple realised they'd have to pay something to HTC for something HTC owned which was being used without permission so decided to settle instead of lose publicly in court.
Is because the climate change Chihuahua's would be shown to be correct.
Which would make people who use phrases like 'Climate Change Debier Attack Dogs' seems a bit, well, like Apple fanbois or Creationists.
Oh, and it'd embarrass the Government immensely which is more likely the reason for the judgement.
It's also about time a distinction was drawn between Climate-sceptics and Anthro-sceptics. The former being folk who deny the bleeding obvious and the latter being folk rightly suspicious of the lobbying from a darn lucrative industry.
