Remote controls with their own screens? new?
Not quite a new idea, Nintendo were pipped at the post by the Sega Dreamcast by a mere 14 years or so.
Nice try though :)
The HP v Autonomy spat rumbled on this week, as Hewlett-Packard continued to maintain that Autonomy had "inflated its value", leading HP to slurp it up for an unwise amount of money. HP has said that it had to write down $8.8bn on the acquisition and alleges that Autonomy shuffled the figures to make itself look good. Former …
' he needs "sunlight and fresh air". '
Tough, the whining little maggot shouldn't have gone running to his mates and simply faced the music if he had nothing to hide!
Let me try that at work, "Hello, it's me I'm not coming in to work today as I ballsed up the main batch process and I am now hiding in the Papua New Guinea Consulate in central London as I think you might be angry!".
And the "chronic lung illness" is part of it.
Here's the scene, policemen standing around outside the embassy when a doctor and an EMT come through carrying a stretcher.
Minutes later a thin blond man comes out of the embassy on the stretcher, wearing a oxygen mask.
Police run over, much commotion, arrest blond man there and then, doctor objects to mask being lifted etc.
Police get in ambulance and all concerned driven to hospital.
When they get there, EMT breaks off , goes to a quiet place and removes "Mission impossible" style mask, revealing The Assange, with dyed black hair, dark fake tan and a goatee.
Quickly jumps in a waiting vehicle and speeds off to a beach where a zodiac/speed boat/french fishing boat crewed by Argentinian special forces is waiting.
Boat whisks him out to sea where they meet up with a container ship bound for South America.
The Assange is inserted into a pre-prepared container with living quarters / septic tank / water etc. all self contained, and seals are affixed showing it was consigned in Spain 2 weeks earlier.
A month later he appears in Ecuador.
The "doctor" mingles with the hospital staff and disappears.
The man with pneumonia (the real EMT sans disguise) turns out to be a disposable foreign national with a now much enlarged bank account to make up for the time he will serve.
Good idea, but I think it's too complicated.
How about through the window into a harness hanging from a helicopter with a winch? Then out to sea to a Ecuadorian registered ship outside UK territorial waters.
The helo would be violating airspace restrictions for 2 or 3 minutes whilst over central London, but "they" can hardly shoot it down - even if a Tornedo/Eurofighter could be scrambled and sent to intercept in time.
It was done and failed miserably; the 'bag' was over sized and didn't pass inspection, was opened and inside there was an unconscious/pharmacologically comatose 'patient' and an Israeli national/doctor and I think one other. The 'upset' member of diplomatic staff whose 'bag' it supposedly was ("that ain't my bag baby") flew like the wind, leaving the haul to be discovered.
It will not happen, least of all with the T-ray scanning of today... ...unless the 'bag' is lead lined, in which case this will be deemed to be inadmissible and sent straight back into the embassy.... ....after a long delay, in the hope that the 'contents' of the 'bag' run low on oxygen.
