This is happening all over. Nursing, university tutors, IT.
The biggie is university tutors. PhD students often have work to offset fees and living costs. The unis get funding per student based on these costs. The uni then underpays the student. This is really common with female Asian PhD students. The unis skim the top off and treat it as income.
Or that Steve Gibson of Gibson Research, was a popinjay, a chalitan, over his claims of the wmf security hole.
Everyone seemed to trumpet Microsoft's butter-wouldn't-melt explanation that they simply didn't know, vs Gibson's deliberatness claims. Including El Reg.
All those everyone's seem very silent on the matter in this post wikileaks world.
Of course, now we know MS were virtal agents of the NSA & CIA.
Gibson was likely right.
The industry press silence is deafening.
The earth's diameter is 12742 km, so the missile could reach nearly everywhere just about.so the 10000 km range is significant. US is 8800 km away and Australia, a US lapdog, is 9977kms away so that would definately need to be hit if the balloon went up.
Not withstanding Oz is a major source of uranium.
It would unfortunately not stop the most horrific product of Australia. ...Foster's beer. As that's made globally now:(
The large bomb disposal robots we have seen in news and films are different to a bomb carrying robot. The latter are simpler, smaller, quieter and designed to carry a payload guided by remote operator who can then trigger the device. These are designed for purpose - to Kill.
Another example of militarization of police.
Gallileo is significant. As with competition it drives up features and lowers cost.
The US GPS system had a flip switch, that, during the first gulf war, rendered the system uselessly inaccurate to the public. To the point if you were lost in rugged country it put you at gross risk.
No surprise then, the US is preparing by undertaking to not reduce accuracy in times of conflict.
Regardless, Gallileo with be sub metre accurate.
The US is not at all happy about Gallileo, but havent figured out what to do about it.
Just for thesakeof a little honesty, this is less about security and more about banning a platform that provides competition to apps and games. We saw this on iPhone and Android.
Now that there is the chrome store flash to to much competition.
Html 5 on mobile does not function like a desktop browser. Performance is sub par. And they still banned flash. The security argument is just the selling point.
But we need pc chips to differentiate us from the filthy console morons. Innovations in games come from keeping the bar high. If it's just dependant on rehashing games for the mentally retarded console crowd then Jelly Dash or whatever those console idiots play will become the technology to aim for.
Real gamers will lose.
Re: Great looking but...
I know right. My new house is an older one with just 2 plug outlets in the bedroom.. One for bedside lamp and one for electric blanket.
But I want to run my clock, charger for my phone, and a TV. One day I'll get a house with those plugs. Till the it'll have to do without.
Mountain rescue need to shut their pie holes and rescue or bugger off if they don't want to do it.
For all the rest that wine about people needing rescue then I, as a taxpayer, resent having to pay for sports injuries sustained by their snotty children on a Saturday morning. Certainly not for some 14 yo horserider who is inexperienced and snaps their neck. Parents place their children in danger. They should pay.
The average subcutaneous (under skin) fat depth for a US grain fed feedlot animal is 3 inches.
Contrast this with paddock roaming grass fed beef such as in New zealand which is 1/2 inch.
In fact the lean beef issue is so great for the US they import lean beef from countries like NZ to mix with their excess beef fat for the beef burger industry which is monstrous in the US.
So I would be in intrested to see how this could disrupt said beef burger industry.
As a company Apple needs to die. They are, as it turns out, the worst of the worst.
It is somewhat fortuitous that Jobs is dead. While he was visionary, much like Hitler, or Pol Pot, much of it was in all the wrong ways.
Although Job wasn't no1 in vileness. I'd rank the list at No3: Hitler, No2: Jobs, No1: Pol Pot.
