No. The BBC does NOT operate for the 'Public Good'.
It is not, nor has it ever been 'Impartial'.
It is heavily biased towards the establishment status quo.
It is, in effect, the televisual arm of The Ministry Of Truth.
I have to agree with some other posts on here: when he left the building, leaving behind his keys, badge etc with a letter of resignation, he effectively surrendered his authorisations for their systems at that point.
Anything providing critically important information to (or critically important signals from) the control & protection systems on a nuclear reactor tend to be duplex, and hard-wired using shielded & armoured cables. Most instrumentation still tends to be straightforward analogue devices.
A Trump whitehouse.gov WILL be a no-brainer...
why so many seem to be getting their knickers in a twist over whitehouse.gov being subjected to a DDOS attack.
It's not like they control anything of National Security importance from it, do they?
A Von Neumann Patent Generator?
where the sun don't shine.
Had two letters from our supplier, offering a 'free' smart meter, and requesting we make an appointment to have one fitted.
Both have been promptly recycled.
As will any further 'requests'
Oh, Do Fuck Off.
Think of all the traffic on the M25, squeezing down on 117 miles of roads almost constantly.
You should be able to recharge an entire fleet of electric busses for central London.
just how much the Duke of Westminster avoided in inheritance recently?
And how much tax corporations are avoiding?
Time HMRC sorted out the big fish first.
England & Wales only...
What Utter Tripe
that the world is going to hell on a hand-cart, this has to be it.
(It'll probably be an Apple iHand-Cart, patented down to the grain pattern in the wood)
There was one helluva stink in Scotland when various companies were castigated (rightly so IMHO) for pretty much telling their employees how to vote two years ago. This is not only in the same field, but standing ankle-deep in the same cowpat.
It's what you light yer fags with...
"it shipped 15,048 million units"
By that account we should all have two each.
First they debased the coinage.
Then they invented paper 'money'.
They did away with (almost completely now, does anyone still get one?) the pay packet in favour of electronic bank transfer.
They're slowly eroding 'cash'.
Remind me again, what's the interest rate at, and for how long now?
When you only have access to your credits electronically, how easy is it to be made instantly destitute?
If it were, prisons in the US would be empty...
Nothing like a little game of "Block the Zombie"
Spot the 'dead-to-the-world' target approaching on a busy pavement.
Stop dead in front of them.
The 'TGTBT' principle.
Therein lies your problem: once you allow the Police ,FBI etc. to take on the role of Law Enforcement, which belongs with the judiciary, rather than the law of deterrence, detection and apprehension of criminals, then the 'Judge Dredd' syndrome will take over, as can be seen.
The system whereby senior law officials are elected is deeply flawed and open to politicisation and corruption, with areas of criminality becoming 'pet projects' for DA's/Judges in the run-up to election time.
I am also continually amazed by the apparent reluctance of large sections of the US populace resistant to change in the 'Holy of Holies', the Constitution, given the regular reference to the various Amendments...
Before you ask, no, I don't have an answer to your problems, apart from suggest that you rein your police forces back in, de-militarise them, and remind them who's who in the 'Protect & Serve' relationship.
a leaky steam-powered vibrator!
Oooh. Feel the BURN!
Google will simply draw a line on the calendar, and mandate hardware compliance of all handsets beyond that. No reason that they can't stratify those hardware requirements to create budget, mid-range & premium baseline specs.
The big bunfight will be getting your components on the 'approved' list.
must come down.
They may not have nuclear capability, but a sufficiently large, solid object (presuming re-entry survival) is going to dispense quite a chunk of kinetic energy...
Get it on my car paintwork. Glass too, if wipers don't erode it.
Get blamed for everything else
Yup, Nexus forums awash with this one, looks like just about every car manufacturer affected.
Had some direct exchange with google, proffering the usual 'solutions', including Factory Reset (which doesn't reset the device to KitKat, so not a lot of use...) concluding in a distinct washing their hands of it.
Really pissed at having spent a shitload of cash on their 'flagship' device to have them piss all over one of the major functions (for me anyway).
certainly not inclined to spend my hard-earned with them next time round, but unless someone comes up with a better alternative that isn't apple or microsoft...
When they fix the clusterfuck they made of Bluetooth with the last update...
"We’ve spent a lot of time listening to what people using Google+ had to say."
Maybe try asking people who're NOT using it why not, and what would change their mind
for "sand" read "your arse" I think...
Not the main problem.
The main problem for anyone outside of a major city center and/or not on '4GEE' is that their signal and data speeds are, at best piss-poor, and nominally uter shite.
I have posted numerous 'complaints' on this on twitter, to be met with similar responses as those shown (can you DM us, PLEASE!!!) to just being flat out ignored.
Orange/EE give me the impression that if you're not a '4GEE' customer they couldn't really give a rat's arse what your reception is like.
and the only output is via the in-car audio system.
Seem to be pretty much covered in the copy protection stakes.
And lets face it, 'everyone' borrows (or at least used to) CD's from their friends.
Further death-throes of the conventional music industry model
And another cashfest for the lawyers.
Please define what a 'kms' is, as it does not appear to be a standard SI unit of measurement.
Always one ill-informed idiot:
The Scottish nobles were coerced into the Act of Union, not just by the disater of the Darien Project, but by the 'Alien Act' which, had they not acceeded, would have resulted in their property in England being forfeit.
Propagated by the results of greed on both sides of the 'union'.
Either way, all that shit was over 300 years ago. Some of us have gotten over that, and are looking to the future, not the sordid past (some seem unable to see past 1690). With the obvious exception of the recent, and ongoing, draining of ALL the UK's wealth into the coffers of the Tories and their cohorts. An iScotland will be the kick in the knackers the political system in the entire UK needs, but so many seem to be so afraid of initiating
Made I larf.
Thought you might have make it all the way back to the PFYs 'outburst'
"Synergy of Hardware and Information Technology, Business Admin Group"
They're just NOT FUCKING INTERESTED.
It's time that this sort of pointless statistic (they're ALL pointless IMO) was given the attention it truly deserves: NONE.
Bacon still tastier than Tofu
Organic or otherwise...
doesn't help when there's no (apparent) definition or standardisation for which way 'up' the socket should be.
If you have multiple devices, from different manufacturers (or even the same one), you can guarantee that you'll have some one way, some the other.
And as for plugs being marked, same problem; some one side, some the other, some not at all.
I call April Fool on that one.
Besides, my missus had a Ericsson phone many years ago that had a plug-in querty keyboard.
Not to mention all those other crackberry clones out there
Reciprocated: to move alternately back AND forward (or up AND down, if you prefer)
Professionally Upset By Everything.
If this person (gender has not been formally identified) finds 'lag' and 'jacksey' offensive, they're gonna be apopleptic over 'C*ckwomble', F*cknugget' & 'W*nkstain'
Worse than that, they have no contol over their use of the apostrophy. Grammatical heathen.
it's just that we've given up complaining about the rest of them as much because fuck all changes whether you do or not.
Though I imagine BT are no different in that respect. Different demographic perhaps?
But Our Lizard Overlords don't currently seem to give too much of a fuck about our opinions on anything. Can only see that getting worse instead of better (HMRC given powers to simply take what you 'owe' them from your bank account, without oversight; the steady grinding down of the NHS; privatisation of just about everything; a semi-militarised police farce (BoJo wants them to have unfettered use of water cannons); WorkFair schemes; increasing poverty and the 'wealth gap'; need I go on?)
If they think that they can get away with it, they will certainly try.
Making Google Glass 'cool' is the first step to making them Ubiquitous.
I predict that sooner rather than later, Our Lizard Overlords will decide that these are such "a good thing" that their wearing will become mandatory, then we'll ALL be part of the Survelliance State. Powered by EE of course (becoming Everybody Everywhere).
That said, they'll have to improve their network a shitload first.
