“We have recent revised our prices and also increased our service levels and we do not envisage making further changes due to the abolition of the carbon tax. Although electricity is a meaningful component of our Data Centre operational costs, it does not form a large enough portion of our overall Managed Cloud costs to warrant a price reduction in itself.”

Re: What happened to the right to remain silent? @John G Imrie
Wasn't it either you, or the other person who uses your car, if you weren't driving it that day? In the real world?
Maybe it was the person on the other side of town who has the same car as you with the same plates
Not exactly easy to clean

Re: Industrial use.
something like I describe will eventually arrive and make the service engineer's salary a lot smaller.
I'm sure you can find someone to pay that
Is it ok if I use that?
Oh dear, I guess you didn't like Latin.
I didn't either, but it taught me a lot about language structure.
Different people have varying apptitudes for various skills and one size fits all education is as useful as one size fits all shoes.
Re: arehole (sic)
I doubt it is possible to teach everyone how to code, we have enough trouble teaching everyone how to spell. Cheap shots aside, I think it is you who is missing the point.
Everyone can be taught how to kick a ball, but you'd be mad if you thought everyone could be a professional footballer.
I understand what you're trying to say with regard to teaching people how to think logically and I agree that it is more important to teach people how to think rather than teach them how to pass exams but I think you're failing to grasp an important issue.
You think teaching to code will teach logical thought process because you're interested in code.
Those that don't have that interest will gain very little.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for putting coding on the syllabus, but an expectation that you can teach everyone to code is not only delusional, it's dangerous.

Re: Is your privacy worth nothing?
This is tantamount to a postal worker arriving at your front door, opening and reading your mail in front of you and taking some notes before handing over the torn envelopes.
I agree with your point but there's an error in your analogy.
It would actually be like a new postal company that would deliver your post without monetary charge on the condition that you granted them licence to not only look at every item you send but also every item of post sent to you regardless of whether the sender of that item had paid for delivery or not.

Collecting all this data isn't helping fill this swimming pool.
We have to carry on collecting this data because people will be really angry if the pool's not full when the sun comes out.
"we have not identified a single instance involving a threat to the United States in which the program made a concrete difference in the outcome of a counterterrorism investigation"
The report's authors were split on their views, however. Rachel Brand, who served as assistant attorney general for legal policy at the US Department of Justice (DoJ) between 2005 and 2007, said wrote in a dissenting opinion that the bulk data collections were legal and warned that if there was another major terrorist attack "the public will engage in recriminations against the intelligence community for failure to prevent it."
Drown your sorrows?
How long will it last?
They'll find a loophole, a way to work around it, or the law will miraculously change.

So: develop the calibration app; install the calibration app; run the calibration app.
Watch as apple produce a similar app and remove yours from the store
"the companies already have this option at no cost by having your call automatically answered and playing their own recorded message."
As soon as everyone's used to hearing custoimised rings, you'll be able to move them seemlessly into a call they're paying for without them realising the calls been answered....
Actually, I wonder if there are any crafty bastards playing ring ring down the phone at me until i hang up?

Re: Think of the children
Normalising having to provide your finger prints for services is pretty scary if you ask me
integrated capacitive fingerprint sensor will build legitimacy for the technology in mainstream consumer electronics, although privacy concerns are bound to raise their heads in these newly paranoid times
The first half of that sentence translates as
Look into my eyes, not around my eyes, into my eyes. You're under. Giving your finger prints is a good thing, look how secure it makes your phone. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could do everything by touching your finger against a little pad. What could possible go wrong?
The second part is both understatement of the year, yet also subtley phrased to make you think that those concerns are ludicously paranoid.
There, fixed it for you
