Adrift Keynesian wreckage, surely?
No, it's still cool.
You will rue the day that your employer lost business because some "user" was prevented from doing her job by your deliberate action. The computers are there for the business, not your personal gratification.
Or a babyfaced MS grassrooter who has never had to solve problems created by "productivity tools".
They are not calling for ISIS-style Jihad, what more do you WANT?
This is boilerplate lawyerse in case they WANT to do something later or something HAPPENS or someone objects to his DATA travelling out into the Internets and get no-win-no-fee attorneys on the case.
How far are they really going RIGHT NOW?
Woah. Just putting "Landesverrat" in print in Germany is bound to go down like a lead balloon with whirling swastikas.
1) Do you really think Obama writes a up a shopping list? He is handed a letter to sign by some gremium of sages.
2) He doesn't even mention 3D TLC flash: announcement
3) That the stuff around the tech has to be designed appropriately should be obvious to the meanest intelligence
In the end this is just another "industrial policy" effort like the 80's "Strategic Computing Initiative" (this one is even called "National Strategic Computing Initiative" again) which started as response to Japan's Fifth-Generation Computer project but veered off into supercomputing and weapons technology within 2 years. More here: Strategic Computing Initiative and Book Reference. It is very unclear whether this is going to help one way or the other or from where the money is going to come from given the parlous, if not cancerous, state of finances with the next recession looming. There will be bailouts to push...
How is that going to help?
Plus it is not about "figuring out part of". It's about the existence of smooth solutions. This has nothing to do with computation or even practical applicability. And you will have to await a mathematical mind, prize money or not. Maybe Terry Tao will have a lucky break in solving a it?

What can i say i love windows 10 and everything about it.
The only thing that comes to mind are crazed youngsters of various ethnicities and smartly dressed in suspiciously well-chosen hipster clothing dancing on-premise in a newly opened Microsoft Store.

This. And El Reg has gone down the way of crap design too (back in February, was it?)
Then again, one has to provide jobs to the army of people who think "web design and uglyfication" is actually a real job that is supposed to be remunerated.
The spacetime rift opened on 9/11 due to improper shutdown of a dark energy generator on floor 88 finally arrives in IT!
Every day is mandatory patch day and "This work will never be finished.”
It is also why toilet water rotates in a different direction for Aussies (counterclockwise) versus Yanks (clockwise)
You can also be certain that planetary coriolis forces are not going to affect your bullet outside a zero.centered error bar. This is not a fucking neutron star!
... for antidrone drones.
And +1 for using projectile weapons in anger, espically if "liberal" whining and manufactured outrage is increased by doing so.
The malware beacons to custom Twitter handles, where it scans for specific links and hashtags, then goes to Github where it obtains an image that APT29 applies steganography to, to decrypt commands, and finally executes commands on the victim machine before uploading to popular cloud storage services.
This makes as much sense as anything from "Ghost In The Shell: Man-Machine Interface". Can I have this explained, please?
but he should never have been put in the situation where human error was possible
I can't even fathom the confused state of mind that extrudes this kind of statement.
"Likewise the FAA should have been more insistent in its controls - ensuring a sufficient safety culture existed in the company."
Newsflash: The FAA is not in the business of "ensuring sufficient safety culture" (sufficient for what, anyway?)
And you know what would happen ... all the aholes would cry 'too much government regulation .. let the maket pace decided about safety.
Never trust someone who is into Big Government but cannot spell properly.
potentially racist information such as “Jewish”
TOP LOL! The ethnicity that must not be named?
More seriously, what if there is a big button underneath the desk that "DROP TABLE notices FROM customer_db" in case of a "raid"?
Pluto: Not even Moria-tier dwarf planet.
"Moved pyramid", rather?
"Yes, we aliens like geometrically simple habitations resembling heaps of stones laid done by architecturally rather uncultured hired peasants. It's an ancient tradition..."
There's a reason Sun put that "no nukes" disclaimer in Java.
That was legal arse covering (cowering?).
Maybe Sun/Oracle wants to say "our JVM and the sometimes mind-withering runtime libraries are not to be used for high-assurance tasks". That may be so. The Java language however, is not concerned by this. While Java is not exactly the best language for high-assurance programs, restricted Java is bound to be *better* (in the sense of more testable/easier to write and check) than restricted C/C++ code (like MISRA C) because the code can be checked more extensively.
But yeah, I would use an Erlang and its VM at least for the high-level parts of the nuke control ...
If you want the last word in speed you use C/C++ and/or asm regardless of what platform you're on.
I don't know what this even means.
"I have a fast hammer for people who are serially misjudging their skills and resources, so all the world must behave like nail?"
And anyone using assembler on modern CPUs needs to have their head examined. Seriously, go seek help.
For once an article without an irrelevant and irritating overly large fondleslab/ADHD-yoofcroud-oriented stock picture of dubious taste? It was relaxing like a warm bath with complimentary saké.
So we have some headlining with 10⁹ phones, revised to 0.95 x 10⁹. Is this indeed the number of devices corresponding to "any phones running Android older than 4.1"? If so, how many of those are still in active use and how many are
toxic wastevalued recyclable material?
I have the weird feeling the bugsies are getting better every week...
uncontrolled by the multi-nationals
I have bad news for you: until you can buy (duly regulated) nanoassemblers at Aunt Martha's "Homebuilding Goodies", those solar cells are coming from some multinational.
So do those windfarms
Finally a useful site on the Internet!
Also a bit steampunk-ish
just like diamonds it's held back to increase price ..
Well, I hear the Saudis are pumping like crazy to keep the price down (for not entirely clear reasons ... maybe to mess with Putin or Iran) so no...
Of course 8% of electricity used isn't the same as 8% of energy used - do you think your readers are stupid? 99% of road transport and 100% of air transport is carbon fueled for instance. Don't you think we realise that?
But that just
1) Makes the problem worse for all the investments in time and materials (which HAVEN'T gone where they would actually make sense) have gone into hard-to-maintain infrastructure that won't deliver; this is known as "malinvestments"
2) Means "8%" is actually shit-tier in terms of real achievements
It's like these end-of-quarter results "made more money than slightly under the worst year we had!" announcements.
Don't be a weak-willed individual akin to a bundle of sticks.
about £300 per year paid to companies like Google by every wage earner in the country
I do hope that UK companies also have customers outside Blighty and the Falklands?
Worse, Google don't really pay any tax anywhere either.
Seriously, citation needed.
That's right, some of that £300 per year in the UK is going into funding foreign pensioners, without it being taxed to help support the UK population first.
How much is "some" .. 0.5%? Any numbers?
Also note that this money supports people who might be on the dole without advertising revenue, so you ACTUALLY PAY LESS TAXES FOR DOLE SUPPORT! Isn't that great?
IT UPDATED HERE!
I don't think that reverse engineering is still allowed nowadays though. That's want the DMCA is about. And even if it were allowed, you might well run into patents...
Also, how does the copying lawyer trick work? Was there documentation on file ... ? If so, did Nintendo intend to publish it? Otherwise it would have been a trade secret and would never have left the Nintendo "IP Vault"
Nothing coming off the computer screen soon, mate. Even if the american flag can be seen on the space elevator in question (why not the flag of the Greater Co-dominium of Inner Asia, created in 8060 C.E.? I dunno...)
I dont't agree with the diatribe but I'm pretty sure it is not "outdated". Indeed the continuing economic wreckage of the Eurozone, in particular France, should show it to be very far from outdated indeed. The US is not far behind....

LHC might have found a 2TeV resonance corresponding to M-SUSY
Exceedingly unliked to be true, my good fellow.
Getting enormous flashbacks to the pre-Internet-bubble-burst merger mania.
Is money too cheap? Are expectations overblown? Is irrationality at hedge fund levels? Is that a black swan I spy? The truth will be revealed soon!
Deny the right to right to assert copyright in anything extruded from a state outfit. It has already been paid for in the form of tax money shifted to well-connected "friends & operators" and possibly excessive salaries to petulant civil serpents. End of story. Everybody wins.
The fact that state throws money out of the windows to pursue "copyright claims" using "terrorism" as a sort of argument should lead to guillotines being erected on public places and cleansing to begin worthwith.

The delusional loyalty and misplaced hope in comp.sys.amiga.advocacy and the magazines was pretty hilarious though.
Why so cruel?
Technically, moore's law means that commodity hardware (x86 PCs) always wins. What can only be achieved on custom hardware today will be done cheaper and better on standard hardware tomorrow.
The Amiga as the Lisp machine of home computing?
With the onset of the "AI winter" and the early beginnings of the microcomputer revolution (which would sweep away the minicomputer and workstation manufacturers), cheaper desktop PCs soon were able to run Lisp programs even faster than Lisp machines, without the use of special purpose hardware. Their high profit margin hardware business eliminated, most Lisp machine manufacturers went out of business by the early 90s, leaving only software based companies like Lucid Inc. or hardware manufacturers who switched to software and services to avoid the crash.
I can live with that.
