They'll only make a hash of it.....
Absolutely, but if Intel are sending in a lawyer as their representative/advocate (as the article suggests) then she might be better with experienced representation accompanying her.
Guiney confirmed she is representing herself against the legal briefs hired by Intel though she has no formal training in the profession.
Regardless of whether or not her case has merit, this would appear to be a brave/hubristic strategy on her part?
As a Sales Director at Intel - unless they withheld all of her salary/bonus since she started - it's not like she couldn't afford some legal or HR-specific tribunal representation/adviser in there with her.
With tribunals though I don't believe that she would be on the hook for Intel's representation costs at least if she were to lose the case so it's not quite like a court.
Those votes are for comments, not the article to which they relate though...

You can (optionally) leave Shazam on in the background so it is always listening/ready.
If enabled, this gives a real-time excellent backchannel back to advertisers as to who is watching which advert and when (sometimes there are even explicit Shazam mentions in TV adverts - "Shazam to see special offer").
Combined with knowledge of a user's mobile number (likely to be known due to many online subscriptions) then you have precisely-targeted ad feedback mechanism for sale to the highest bidder in your ad network.
1) How on Earth do you make Money identifying Songs for People? More to the Point how do you make 40million doing that???
Nothing crazy - just referral fees to iTunes/Spotify etc.
I don't think many people will sign up.
They will not just have to pay for their child's desk use, but other desks in the classroom, all other classrooms in the school, all school office desks and also all desks in use in any of the other Oracle campus office buildings too, whether occupied or not.
mix your phone with the gease
It would probably fly North for winter if you did that? That would confuse the GPS tracking until Spring.
Isn't Scotland (at least currently...) a little too far from the Equator for launches to be efficient/economical/competitive?
Maybe they were drug mules?
..of a car which can perform like an Audi RS4
Many people may not want to pay the related premiums for that kind of performance - it will be interesting to see what the insurance group will be!
If they dialled down the power delivery a little then they could probably reduce the insurance group considerably.
At least to start with the repair costs will be unknown by the insurers (e.g. for battery pack damage) which could lead to an inflated insurance group regardless of performance.
"..surely most of the staff TUPE across to the new contractor when a customer takes their business away?"
If moving to a Cloud IaaS/PaaS/SaaS platfom then there may be nowhere to TUPE affected staff in infra/storage/networking/support roles, hence significant redundancies would be expected as those contracts expire.
..and fabulous sequinned uniforms for the armed forces
That might be construed as a mortar attack and lead to retaliation?
A Yatch has several slang meanings (as per UrbanDictionary at least) as well as being a mis-spelling of Yacht.
Who knows what else Larry wants on his yacht.....
Sinnet is Tennis backwards - egatnavda nozamA ?
May I just say "Fnar! Fnar!" and "Ooh, Matron!" at this headline. Even El Reg could not do better:
Or your glass is twice as big as it needs to be?
Probably based on the Southern Hemisphere having 20% / 80% land/water ratio.
Therefore the part that is not the equator or Antarctica is even smaller.
Whilst Winter is applicable to the whole non-equatorial Southern Hemisphere, we can assume that the bulk of iPhone X users are on land (as indeed for the Northern Hemisphere), and not in Antarctica.
Therefore as far as iPhone X users go the statement is likely to be accurate.
Geographically however - what you said.
..without a very good excuse
...like "I'm a drug dealer/forger/the KLF looking for a light"?
Daft question here:
If the gates had to be closed to keep the sea out, then at any point they were open, it would have flooded - drunk gatekeeper or not.
If the tide had to be in for the gates being open to matter then surely he would just leave them open then to let the tide go out and everything unsubmerged, but damp.
(I am also sometimes referred to as a legend - I am getting old and no-one really believes in me any more....)
Absolutely - I'm not sure whether the article is saying "Duh! Why are they testing anti-icing if the temperature is 9°C!"
A statement that "temperatures on the day averaged about 9°C" tells you nothing without knowing the altitude of the drone, its airspeed (i.e. airflow over its flying surfaces and hence chill) and whether icing conditions were prevailing at that time (e.g. humidity).
Also - being pedantic - the period of the "average temperature" is important too - it could have been 9°C for 24 hours, or 0°C for 12 hours and 18°C for 12 hours or any other combination....
They may well have proved that the airframe is prone to icing, and/or the deicing does not work (twice!) but the fact that they are saying nothing implies it is more stupid than that (e.g. out of fuel, batteries ran out on drone, flew at negative altitude over the sea for too long, wings on back-to-front).
You might be on to something - "fail fast and fail often" seems to apply here
Isn't that why €500 notes are being withdrawn from 2019 and (I believe) banks in the UK don't handle them?
£50 do look like they will remain in circulation though
Yes - like it said in the article....
Armature I have seen worse
Rumour has it that even that avenue is being closed off as only Skype Mobile 8 will work with the Skype servers at some point.
The desktop Skype remains untouched as yet on Windows (so you don't have to install the W10 Store Skype App) which matches the Mobile version.
The design motif to my mind is like the guy in the Skittles advert (milking the giraffe) has eaten too many, vomited into the bucket and then the giraffe has crapped rainbows on the resulting steaming heap.
The new Skype Mobile version is crap on its own (smiley option with each message - really?)
Let's see how it goes
<Typing a TXT> The June update for Skype Mobile is completely s.. (shit, shocking, stupid, snapchat wannabe, so bad I installed it)
Good point - is the autonomous cloud database actually a Mechanical Turk/Romanian/etc.?
Edam it, surely?
I've emailed Ed Witten to find where I can get strings small enough to fit the violin needed to accompany the lament here.
Curses - otherwise I would buy one and strip out the flash drives ;-)
I presume that $10k is for the unit only and not the Flash drives?
The engineering perspective is that the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
Pretty please get Lewis Page to comment!!!
With the 120Kg max payload, anyone with the balls to get in to one of these would need a second drone to carry them....
Ditto for Nokia X6 - it was shit but Nokia thought it was equivalent.
I drop-kicked mine and then jumped up and down on it as it was so awful.
There may also be a level of self-regulation of robot numbers here since at some point there will not be enough people to buy whatever it is that the robots are making also - therefore fewer new robots will be needed - i.e. peak robot.
The taxation argument can be applied to other new technologies (e.g. electric vehicles) since if fuel taxes/duties diminish due to lower consumption then they have to be raised elsewhere. However we know that governments frequently "innovate" creatively on the taxation front...
“It should always be possible to find out why an AI made an autonomous decision,” says Winfield, referring to it as “the principle of transparency”,
I'm not sure that this is possible with some aspects of AI/ML, since the algorithm is honed by the AI/ML itself and may not be transparent/apparent to its developers at all even if logged in a black box log.
I recall reading something similar recently in relation to this - may have been to do with Machine Translation where the AI/ML was able to translate directly between 2 languages it had not been specifically trained on, via triangulation.
Is Precinct 13's password OK because they used a salt on it?
It is surprising that they have not noticed for so long - wouldn't you have some kind of heartbeat monitoring set up to check that the site is alive/accessible externally?
(On a slightly pedantic note: 5-month anniversary? That's not even a thing..)
"Learn how easy it is to move your Oracle Solaris–based workloads to … Oracle SPARC–based cloud solutions"... running Linux.
...and on top of crappy OVM.....
Indeed do remember - 20MB hard drive in a PC-AT supporting a group of 30 people (started work in 1990 at a Big 6 accountancy firm).
The Internet was only available in black and white then - and they switched it off at the weekends (your recollections may vary............).
Great typo in this context!
