What are they doing about the root cause oif the problem, the Smog?
Several years ago, Great Britain funded a study to determine why the head on a mans’ penis is larger than the shaft.
The study took two years and cost over $1.2 million.
The study concluded that the reason the head of a man’s penis is larger than the shaft was to provide the man with more pleasure during sex.
After the results were published, France decided to conduct their own study on the same subject.
They were convinced that the results of the British study was incorrect.
After three years of research at a cost of in excess of $2 million, the French researchers concluded that the head of a man’s penis is larger than the shaft to provide the woman with more pleasure during sex.
When the results of the French study were released, Australia decided to conduct their own study.
The Aussies didnt really trust British or French studies.
So, after nearly three hours of intensive research and a cost of right around $75.00 ( 3 cases of beer), the Aussie study was complete.
They concluded that the reason the head on a man’s penis is larger than the shaft is to prevent your hand from flying off and hitting you in the forehead

Aren't condoms sold in relation to the countries statistics.
ie : An Asian "Large" condom would be the equivalant of a very small Scottish condom. ( We wear Kilts for a reason, lol)
And just what do you think that your girlfriend or wife is actually thinking about whilst you are "nuptualising"....
Laurel and Hardy used to make people laugh, whereas this pair of arseholes just want to make us cry.
"I spent the majority of my time clearing snow from around the doors and external equipment to prevent us from freezing to death."
You've just made my day, beers all round...
Resulting in huge amounts of taxpayers money being thrown into the wind.
Fighting piracy by these means is about as fruitfull as shoveling snow around the north pole.
On a more positive note, the fat cats at the top of these Acronym ridden agencies continue to earn small fortunes..... regardless of the outcome the boys at the top retain their jobs.
When you read the procedure it does not seem very possible to "accidently" enable this option especially step 5.
I can't blame MS for this one...
My car also has a semi-hidden menu that I learned about from a web forum BUT I choose to read up on the items before changing any of them. Blindly following theses kinds of procedures is often a recipe for disaster.
Isn't it strange how quickly friends become enemies when money is involved.
Question : how does he know about the technical details if he wasn't part of the original team ? Was he genuinley part of the team or did he "manage to obtain a copy of the details".
Where is PETA when you need them....

I would suggest that what is most important is not one's capacity to code but one's capacity to reason logically. Anyone can learn to code, reasoning logically is another matter.
As an analogy, when I learned to speak French, I did not become Moliere or Hugo.
That definately wouldn't be on par with what the coders in my company earn then.....
But off-shore workers produce some quirky software that didn't quite meet the specifications and asking them to make the relevant changes is like trying to skin a live whale with a plastic tortoise.
Said manager then leaves company or worse gets promoted according to the Peter Principal .
I can hear the bullets being inserted into the magazine already.....click, click, click.
Will the first accused please
face the firing squad enter the accused box and swear at on the bible.
Lawyers and anyone even remotely connected to Finance.
Ok, that seems a bit more logical. I initially understood it aas simply being Apple studying the habits of their customers within the premises.
>instead of wandering around for 10 minutes then giving up, wandering another few minutes finding someone who can help and finding it is one aisle over from the first place you looked.
Agreed it really is a pain in the arse in the larger stores trying to find some specific items..
I do not know about other Apple stores but in Geneva the store is a relatively small affair, it is a T shape.
As you walk in there are the usual Macbooks, or whatever is A La Mode du Jour, on either side of you as you walk in. Then you arrive in the main area which has four large table upon which are spread the usual Macbooks, Ipads etc...
On the edges there are some more shelves/tables with some Imacs and in one corner there is a stand for accessories and on the opposite end the Macbar or whatever it is called.
In all honesty, it takes about 1.2 minutes to see the whole affair and everything just seems to be repeated/spread about everywhere.
It always appears that there are more apple staff than there are customers. It's genueinly a very boring affair.
I can't even begin to imagine the point of activating such a system for such a small surface. I can only presume that the Apple shops are much larger elsewhere but I can't for the life of me imagine what they stock more than the tiny Geneva shop stocks and what could possibly justify the requirement.
Let's see what happens when someone brings out a Synthetic Polymer printer. A la Glock.... Now that will be interesting.
El Reg is an important tech site that helps us keep track of what is "useable" and what is not.
Anything that has been released from Github, less than 1 day ago can be considered as "useable"... albeit not quite bleeding edge.
Bleeding edge would require access to the source files, the compiler and the compile button.....
Everything else is Obsolete Tech...
Anything Apple is by default obsolete unless you have direct access to Steve Jobs expired brain waves ...( the next S version or C version is never far away). Apparently Apple have patented Steves brain waves and are currently preparing to store them in a special vault within the new
anus loop building.
Even an El Reg article of less then 10 minutes old should be considered as Obsolete News...
Agreed, the irony is unbearable.
That's a long time to wait for the power company to react, where do you live , Alaska or the Hebrides ?
Why don't buy yourself a small 30 minute UPS ? ( Unless of course you have long power cuts)....
I do not think that the comms are subsidised, what is definately true though is that competition between the operators is very dynamic and it has been for several years. The service, speed, equipment is pretty much the same for all operators, so the only difference that gives them any advantage is low prices.
The watchdog has also ensured that it is very easy to change providers and this has proved also to be an excellent opportunity for the end-customer.
Anyone in France with a television must pay a TV licence of 131 Euros per year, I dont have a TV so I do not pay it, but they are now thinking about making anyone with a computer/connection pay this licence.
20Mb ADSL line ( Orange or SFR France) ( Land line is include din ofer with free calls to most of the world.
= 32 Euros per month.
Mobile telephone ( I make very few calls -- 20 Euros per month).
I don't have a television ( everything worthwhile is available on the web - as far as I am concerned)
Total = 52 Euros for internet, Landline + Mobile.
Which is slightly better than 408$ .......
See title, for me far more difficult.
In the tube stations they could do what some of the French underground does, full length, full height plastic barriers. The barriers have doors which open only when the train is at a standstill and close before the train moves of... It avoids all of those meat-bag accidents....
Here is an example of a barriere
The stupid will eventually remove themselves and hopefully without any collateral damage..
Wouldn't it actually be better for the species as a whole to allow these people to continue using there devices whilst walking, or sleeping , or bathing or whatever it is that they are doing.
As long as they only risk killing themselves, then I am fine with the idea.
I miss the days when social networking involved going down the pub to have a pint and simply chatting with whoever was there. Why does "social" have to involve gadgets...
I met up with my brother this weekend through a familly gathering, he is a farcebook user and he explanied to me how one of our cousins is extremely chatty with him on FB. The cousion keeps him up to date with all the family trivia etc....
Funnily enough when they met, face to face, in that same social event this weekend they didn't have a single thing to say to each other....
If it has to be tactile then shaking hands is fine, if it has to be written then handwritten letters are fine, if it has to be said then talking face to face is fine...
El Reg is the exception though as it is not really Social Networking, it's just the Reg.
If they are only interested in certain people, 5 Billion signals still represents a hell of a lot of people, even at a 1000 signals pers person that still represents 5 Million people per day.
Totalitarianism is here and it's probably here to stay....
So men were designed to be the hunters and women to me the mothers... I think that nature has known this for a long time already.
There is nothing intentionally derogatory about the above remark, so please abstain from the usual PC diatribe.
Of course there are exceptions, but they are after all just that, exceptions.
When I first read the title, my immediate thoughts went to HP and Canon, the greatest scam artists ever....
As long as the future CEO agrees to take away that , or at least give us a choice, damned TIFKAM interface he would get my vote ( If I had one that is).
If they can detect it, then it won't take them too long before they manage to commercialise a "solution". By announcing something like this they are preparing ground for future product development.
>But the security company warns that ARM and MIPS flavours of the Linux worm may be available,
What does that mean "may" be availabe ? There "might" also be a new supervirus capable of destroying mankind. There "may" also be no need to purchase anything from Symantec.
>so why are bitcoins so hard to grasp?
Because there is nothing tangible.
If you want to send me some of your Gold Soveriegns, Krugerands, a kilo of the finest Columbian marching powder , I will be happy to recieve them from you. There is not a lot virtual about them.
I fell into the same trap....
Then I suppose that M I4 NGE, is not available either
I learned to speak Hebrew many years ago, it was far easier than trying to understand some of these plates
I still can't see what the following are TR14 DDS, LU63 FER ( Lucifer ?)
and what's wrong with SK14 NKY ( Skanky, I presume)
And this takes a fair bit of imagination SP14 STK.....( Spastic ?)
The only one that was remotely intelligent was HU63 NOB .... As it used both of the numbers, whereas the others only used one, or required the fusion of the the two....
Someone at DVLA has a very OR16 NAL job...
Agreed, this is a very American publicity method; knock down your client's product rather than presenting your own. It always make me wonder what they are hiding….
Yep. there is a learning curve which I feel is necassary before heading out into the deeper waters. I mentioned hanging about for a week but usually it is much longer. Some of the XDA threads easilly run into hundreds of replies/posts amongst which you have to try and filter out the fluff and hopefully manage to find the hidden gems.
If modding was so easy and without problems then XDAs forums would be empty, but they are not....
( There might be other forums but I always stuck with XDA, there are some very talented devs over there)
I have been a follower of Cyanogen and XDA Devs for a few years, I am(was) also a programmer ( from assembler to VBA), I also have about 20 years experience in the PC/IT industry world.
I have also modded numerous phones... from CM and various other flavors.
BUT, there are times when even I am a little confused about what to do when things go wrong.... OK I know how to use forums and ask questions but it can sometime take a while to know who to trust. There are a lot of newbies on the forums with a lot of "newbie" advice..... dangerous.... I usually hang about the forums for a week or so before beginning any knew modding in order to pick up on whats good, bad and ugly.
I am not sure why but I get the feeling that releasing this kind of tool to the general public ( there are a lot of numpties out there) is not such a great idea. As long as everything goes OK, why not, but when the shit hits the fan, and it will, there will be several very angry people thinking these b****rds have ruined my phone. ( yes they will be wrong but they don't know that).
Most of the mods are non-destructive but that won't stop a lot of people panicking and no-one will be around to help them...
I am not ranting or complaining about CM or modding in general, I've used/followed them far too long for that, I am just imagining the scenarios that will undoubetdly unfold.
If there are no NSA, Google, UserData being sent to third parties hidden procedures then I want one.
If it is a good phone, can do maps and the web then that's enough for me. Looking forward to seeing the evolution, thumbs up for the guys taking on this venture. I wish them success.
How about the Americans stop snooping in the first place... there solved.
When you have muppets like Cameron et al that are happy to share our data with the Yanks then there is no point in suing anyone. The yank lawyer would just turn round and say that they had permission form GCHQ or other European agency anyway.......
Sounds more like a lawyers wet dream than anyhing even remotely serious.
Don't Apple don't supply a charging cable when you buy an Iphone ?
Did this rumour come from Assanage himself, news about him has been a little quiet of late ? Snowden has taken front place is stealing all the limelight.
That's very nice of them, do they also supply some Uppers for the heartbreak....
