Those presenters on their video feed were all so ready to move on after the 'failed' link, it's almost as if they'd practiced it that way.

Don't need a bomb, just need to be programmed to home in on jet engine intakes.
Re: lack of gravity has wore on him well
Looks like Christopher Reeve did after many years sitting back in a chair.
Re: Tech Coordinator
Your fourth word said it all.
Shame no Sennheiser and AT.
Review would have been much more valuable if you'd included their gear despite no advice from them or freebies.
I know getting ignored isn't good, but those guys are in a minority of makers that have pedigree(*) . I want to know how their stuff compared, even if you do have to spend some money to find out.
(*they have made studio-grade stuff for years. I know that doesn't mean that everything with their name on is 'proper pro')

And oops I read the PDF therefore my nexus must now be destroyed.
Re: The Internet of Things summarised
We get through quite a lot of nappies in our house at the moment, and I'm thinking that the regular dose of electrolyte to all these could be exploited by means of some electrodes and regarded as a source of free energy. So WiFi repeaters, Bluetooth speakers, hands-frees, weather telemetry, covert listening devices could all be built in and just waiting for an IOT brave new world. And it's really green because you can't see all the batteries you're chucking away.
(NB I know reactive and expensive metals will be involved. We'll gloss over that detail.)
Hey, Google! What does "Schadenfreude" mean..
Looks like apple crumble that has been left out in the rain.
Cut off all antennas and short the connections;
Re: Cast your minds back
Agree that TVs should be dumb - though I disagree as to just what constitutes dumb. I'd keep the castability itself in a separate £20 box that can be thrown away when it is no longer supported or desirable. If the Firefox box were able to command the TV's sound or input selector too then that's about as smart as I need.
Hmm. Proving that your autonomous, "intelligent' robot software makes for an intrinsically safe system sounds like a lot of expensive fun. Time to get into the approvals business I think.
Re: Either you photoshopped your current profile photo
And did you then colour in the eyes with a blue felt-tip, or are they truly as azure pools of -er- blue stuff?
The motion of the platform will be modelled in the flight controller and used to inform the flight plan for a big chunk of its final descent. There will be aerospace-grade inertial sensors on it and systems akin to those used for autolanding a military aircraft on a carrier. So the problem isn't so much the motion of the platform per se, rather it is the irregularity of the motion and consequent uncertainty in projections of its position over time. (Periodic motion OK, jerky not so good)
Well done with the good launch and improved target practice - here's hoping for a good landing next time. Though I rarely laugh as loud as when I first saw the jaunty angle of contact last time round.
I really hope their piss filtering system takes out caffeine. If it doesn't they're all going to be permanently wired until they either retire the iss or purge the water for fresh.
(Don't know how much of the caffeine in a coffee gets absorbed by the drinker, but it isn't all of it)
Happily, that's how we came by ours. Its only redeeming fearure was that it wasnt quite do damn expensive.
The emperor's new hoover
He does well for a person who has un-invented so many perfectly good things.
We have a vacuum cleaner that doesn't pick up visible dirt, whose flexible pipe contracts in a most annoying way, that makes a bloody racket, jams up with hair and that is now held together with gaffer tape.
Just give me back my Hoover please.
Salesmen have taken over the world.
Re: Galileo ... at condescension of the USA
Hey if the Chinese or Russians decide one day they don't appreciate these systems they'll knock them all down. Difficult to do without sabotaging your own space kit though. The USA, like everybody else, would have to think hard about that point before they start pressing buttons.
Interesting about the Sony modular thing. Two problems with it -
No product or product line exists for long enough that you would ever get to reconfigure or upgrade it to be different from how it was when you bought it.
Sony disappeared down the bog long ago. Today's eevblog video # 719 briefly tells the sad story. (Sorry no direct link - I'm working on a device that is making it impossible)
And I had a cold last week. It made me all snivelly, it was awful.
Is this piece news, or interesting somehow?
An item on LinkedIn constantly, desperately trying to trick us into giving them our email account details would have been briefly interesting. Or something about their latest attempt to get us to log in for some small, false reason.
Re: Emote-words Bingo
I think he's pretty much been using it as a way of publishing his life-story.
Re: So wait
What they're rightly concluding is that he was a crap pilot, and that that's presumably why he crashed.

Re: The English Patient
The trouble with The English Patient was the hype. I was taken by girlfriend and I had never heard of it so had no expectations and I quite enjoyed it. In a bored and confused sort of way.
Spawn. Only film I've ever walked out of.
Scream 2. Where I learnt what it is to knowingly not care who did it or what's supposed to be happening.
only question is...
Will it be Google, Amazon or < insert other evil... > that eventually hollows it out and uses it as their evil headquarters?
"to keep the cost down, the stylus will be an extra."
Yes, this way it is cheaper and people give you less money.
Re: Sky surveys
It's cold outside...
Re: Let's be fair here
If a welded steel railway track can survive being bolted straight to the ground, so can a pipe. Sounds a lot like a conventional pipeline construction most of the way.
Hand him to the Americans. That'll be a laugh a minute for him.

Glad you were put back together and it worked out OK.
Re: Competition and choice
Every time I hear of Choice in the NHS I just hear Blair in Monkey Dust talking about "Education, Education, Education".
It is tribal short-term politics and nothing more.
When Ilford come out with a smartphone I'll get one.
Mine's the one containing a couple of feet of FP4 and a good slosh of ID11.
They must have (quite reasonably) taken the view that the departure of Badgerline bus services signalled a descent for the west country into a hellish, corrupt and godless state that can only be put right with a bit of scribbling.

Well really I was alluding to the fact that the annoyed person named is not a chap.

Re: Now we KNOW where the Sony hackers got "G.O.P" from
Such shameful accusation belches daily from the corrupt western tongue of the whining liberal.
She wouldn't have learnt the right lesson.
He would have proven his point, but only to himself.
