Does anyone have a list (or know where to find a list) of the APIs we're now allowed to use?

Does anyone have a list (or know where to find a list) of the APIs we're now allowed to use?
Looking at this story, I'd say the USA is pretty much controlled by IS.
This weekend I played an arcade game with the activate windows message permanently visible in the screen corner. Maybe there are some of those on mission critical machines that should be looked after better.
In the middle of the night, the Office PCs will spring to life and shout
I remember Ade Edmundson getting in trouble for saying fart on Wogan. A few years (ok, maybe decades) later and Saturday morning kids telly were doing a sketch called fart attack.
Give it a few decades more and kids TV will be saying fuck, while some currently innocent words will be banned instead.
No mention of taking groups of people for a week in orbit. If he can get people to Mars for 200k, he should be able to manage that for a reasonable price. Currently people pay tens of millions for a quick jaunt to the ISS and Branson is asking a small fortune for a few minutes of sub orbital flight.
Page 3 quotes lots of "Key Facts" like these...
Between mid-2015 and February 2016, Twitter had suspended over 125,000 accounts
globally that were linked to terrorists. Google removed over 14 million videos
globally in 2014 which related to all kinds of abuse.
So how can they say they're not doing anything against terrorism.
A quick web search shows Micron sell 2TB 2D Flash. Compared to that, what's so good about 500 Gb? Write endurance maybe, but SSDs now are good for several complete drive writes per day for years.
If all the contacts can be placed at one edge, a staircase formation of 48 layer dies with data and address busses running up the steps could be huge capacity. So why are we still paying much more for ssd than spinning rust?
When will people learn that there's more to a JPEG than a pretty picture.
With the incoming snoopers charter, all of your internet connection records will be stored on a database that only the government and a select few hacking groups have access to.
The whole story summed up in half a sentence.
These are probably just junk genes. Things only get evolved away if they have a detrimental effect during the useful lifetime of the organism.
Thanks. Excellent description.
This seemed to slow down much more, almost stop even, long before landing. The others seemed to come in really quick, with the brakes on full right up to the touchdown.
Something about never giving unexpected callers access to your computer.
I know most Reg readers would know this, but maybe casual Googlers will land on this page too.
Look we've made our unobtainable chips better.
I know it has its problems, but I kind of like hangouts. I expect in a few months it will be deprecated in favor of their new toy.
Found this while checking out the link above.
One of those draggable 360 degree videos, so you can see the rocket approach. Worth watching if you like this kind of thing.
It's not rocket scien... oh wait.
Go for it anyway.
Aren't they the same person anyway, just using a different name depending on the type of story?
As far as I know, the only design decision made for cost reasons was to make all of the engines and fuel tank segments the same. Which is why these rockets are the same thickness all the way up, rather than the saturn 5 with each stage a bit thinner. But I doubt you'd save much weight by changing that, you still need the same size, only the shape changes.
As if bringing something the size of a 20 storey building travelling at over 7000kph over 100km high down onto a boat named "Of course I still love you" doesn't sound crazy.
would get my vote if the page worked.
Does anyone else tend to find targeted are are usually for the thing they just bought from Amazon.
I can see a lot of people didn't get all the way down to the comments button at the bottom, but I found some nice nuggets of interesting information between the chip numbers. Please don't let the lack of comments put you off this more technical side of the news.
Sounds to me like someone has a patent on phase change memory, so they want to pretend they're not infringing.
What happens WHEN (not if) some of this slurped data falls into the wrong hands. Though to be honest, I think anyone who wants it is "the wrong hands."
That would look better if the screen was black without the goggles. Working at a monitor that looks off would really confuse people.
EDIT: before anyone mentions it, I know it wouldn't work that way, but it would look cool if it did.
Reminds me of this...
LISTER: OK, OK. What's Holly spotted?
RIMMER: An unidentified object.
LISTER: You mean a rock.
RIMMER: It might not be.
LISTER: They're always rocks.
RIMMER: Mostly they're rocks, I agree, but maybe this one's different.
LISTER: Rimmer, there's nothing out there, you know. There's nobody out
there. No alien monsters, no Zargon warships, no beautiful blondes
with beehive hairdos who say, "Show me some more of this Earth thing
called kissing." There's just you, me, the Cat, and a lot of floating
smegging rocks. That's it. Finito.
Sorry, can't get the formatting right.
So it detects when it's stood still idling and runs in low performance low emission mode. When under normal use you get decent performance but a bit more emission. Surely it's a pass. Unless you ban them from varying the engine map for different situations. In which case we're back to carburetors and even then only if they have a manual choke.
I know this is diesel so the carb bit doesn't really apply.
I guess its possible to have an RFID reading washing machine that reads the washing instructions and runs the appropriate program. However I can see it going wrong in so many ways. Like complete refusal to wash any of your clothes together because the instructions vary in some negligible way. Washing machine noticing a neerby dishcloth and putting your best shirt through the ulta-violent don't give a toss cycle. Levi recommend aerial, you can't use persil for this garment. Can't contact the server at Levi.com, please try again later. Etc. Etc. Etc.
though Imon-line now, I tried off- line. It seems exactly the same.
Using it to write this is taking ages though.
I think it needs more language Knowledge. It could also used better word suggestion system that knows what letters can get missunderstood.
overall not as bad as I expected, but very slow compared to typing.
If Peter Jackson is so keen on multi part stories, can we have another episode of Braindead (otherwise known as Dead Alive) please? However please don't try improving Bad Taste, you'll be doomed to fail on that.
Lose the fixed nav bar and it would be OK.
Fixed content is a waste of space, especially on small screens.
Looks to me like at least one big planet near the star, then some small ones before several more big ones. I suppose this kind of fits with the high number of very large known exoplanets that have close in orbits. Though that could also just be down to big close planets being much easier to detect. Apart from the big close one, its a bit like our solar system too.
My biggest conclusion is that I want to see more images like this.
But it looks like it would be bloody good to use. To me, function wins over form in a phone.
I remember reading that the plane is made from nylon. Why do you need to mount the antenna outside?
Does the PS4 have this functionality? I see a lot of comments about the PS3, but not 4.
Does anyone know whether they're planning to bring the first stage down gently again?
I'd bet a lot of solar cell research is very similar to evolution anyway. If a formula works, try tweaking it a bit for the next batch of cells. If a formula doesn't, work very well, drop that line of research. Give it a few billion years and they'll have it cracked.
I guess size makes a difference. TV size displays need big machinery to make them. I also suspect that there'll be X defects per square yard of screen produced, so the bigger the screen, the lower the yield.
Google for tectonic plates and you'll find lots of maps showing where the boundaries are. It looks like the long line to the USA would cross one boundary, and that will be well inland. It's also no a particularly active boundary from what I can see on some of the pictures.
That reminds me of the EHT dance. Everyone knows the moves and the words but doesn't realize it. Then one day tinkering with a car, you get a shock from an EHT lead and the information comes magically to hand.
The dance involves jumping up and down while slowly spinning around and violently shaking the shocked hand while trying to put it under the opposite armpit without stopping shaking it.
The words (shouted in time with the jumps) are Bastard, Bastard, Bastard.
Everyone I've ever seen shocked by an EHT lead has reacted exactly the same way.
Is it just my machine, or does Vimeo not work in Chrome?
There must be some research that can be done in 5 minutes of zero g. The alternatives I can think of are 30 second bursts on the vomit comet, or full blown orbital flight. One may be too short, while the other may be too expensive. I expect this would hit the sweet spot for something, I just can't think what.
Just remembered drop towers, but they give really short times at zero g, comparatively cheap though.
Dodgy shift key, or very expensive tablet.
Just sell them our magic filters, you know the ones that will take out all the porn, and include backdoors into them. No undersea splicing required.
Google or NASA could afford a 15 million computer n their own. Presumably this is a joint research project and the new toy is just a tool that they'll be using.
