Re: "our wifi antenna"
That would actually be incorrect. That would be their satellite antenna.
The wifi antenna(s) would be inside the passenger compartment.

Indeed... I used to visit Guernsey, Jersey and Isle of Man for work quite a few moons ago, and I didn't think twice, my phone just worked and charged as it did back home on the big neighbouring island (GB).

You forgot - Was mentioned several times to the anonymous tip line too!
Amber Rudd needs to quit the sound bites, she just ends up sounding like a feckin' idiot. As do most politicians the moment they step out of their comfort zone of 5 course meals and floating duck houses.
The UK is about to go it alone from Europe, and the last thing it needs is more companies jumping abroad because of enforced broken encryption schemes.
IIRC, the iPhone finger print reader was good when it first appeared, but since then the competition has shot past it.
An iPhone owning colleague of mine recently tried out the Blackberry Keyone, and couldn't believe how good the fingerprint reader was in comparison to what he was used to.
There's only one thing they need to do to thunderbird... Get the filtering to work properly, it's insane... At least on my machine it is.
It worked a few months ago, and then after an update it stopped.
Telling Thunderbird to manually filter a folder works fine, it just won't do it when it collects emails anymore (which it used to do perfectly).
I haven't changed any filters in years either.
It's annoying, but hell, it's still the best email client I've got... Must have a dozen accounts configured.
Probably installing all the spy hooks demanded by various governments.
It would be either the entire hotel, or everyone called Michael in the UK.
And they'd still fail to find more than three.
He, probably quite rightly, feared that the moment he was in the custody of any country, he was likely to find himself on a plane to the USA either before or after the sentence.
All this nails through the hands/wrists business needs to be tested through strict scientific investigation...
Someone fetch me 10 sets of identical twins, 20 crosses, a bag of 6 inch nails and a big 'ammer.
"In March 2008, peers voted for the laws to be abandoned. On May 8, 2008, the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 abolished the common-law offences of blasphemy and blasphemous libel in England and Wales, with effect from 8 July 2008."
So scratch the blasphemy angle... This is all down to 'elf and safety, oh, and political correctness.
Bollocks to the lot of em, who wants nailing? I'll fetch me 'ammer.
Oh, like so many Android devices that get at most 1 or 2 security updates and virtually no OS upgrades despite lots of promises from the manufacturer/network.
Apple has a lot to not like about it, but the length of time that iDevices get updates is generally far better than any Android or Microsoft device.
That's because Apple are the only makers of Apple devices, and they refused to bend at all to the networks. They have complete control over what gets what.
A similar Android device would be a Nexus, which also gets lots of upgrades, because it's Google in charge, and nobody else has any say.
Unfortunately, most Android devices come from the likes of LG, Samsung etc... And they are your bottleneck. They're interested in the money from your next purchase, not the money you've already given for the current.
Someone should make a website with some nice graphs so you can see what kind of after sales service you can expect to get.
This saga brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "blown out of all proportion".
The total amount of dead animal used in the production of *all* the new £5 was less than 1 hoof!
The damn thing could still be walking about... With a limp of course.
And all this is justified because some nutter used Whatsapp just before killing 4 people.
What's the betting his highly encrypted Whatsapp message, which is the current excuse, was just a "Goodbye" to his family?
And he "only" killed 4 (no disrespect intended). The average road deaths in the UK is 4.7 a day... Every day... She'd be more justified banning cars.
Blackholes many adverts, and caches for 300 seconds iirc.
Doesn't need a Pi, it runs nicely on lots of the little boards.
Got mine running on an old Odroid C1 (Native 1Gb LAN).
If the batteries were quality, they would have had protection circuits built in. If the wiring was cheap it would have just melted like fuse-wire (a protection in itself). From the photo I'd say that battery went up properly.
I can't help noticing she was flying from China... If she bought herself a present of some new headphones over there, who knows what she was wearing (she certainly wouldn't!).
Sorry, but that just made me laugh.
I would suggest that in future the reporter just skips Farcebook and their comical operations department, and just create give an anonymous report directly to the cops.
I'll leave them to work out how to create an anonymous tip without being arrested by the cops for sending them the links/pictures, because I'm sure they'll be almost as comical as FB's muppets.
You can't just fire people like that.
You can, even in the UK with all the employment rights, and the ones we've gained from Europe.
It's called gross misconduct, and I would suggest that not running the backups and causing a potential loss of 3 days worth of business would qualify.
If you don't believe me, go and punch your boss and see what happens. That will qualify easily.
Diddo, although after many set which work once, get stuffed in a pocket, and then emerge in kit form the next time they are retrieve, my latest, a set of Sennheisers, are just approaching their one year anniversary of public transport use.
Oh bugger, why did I say that, I'm getting on a plane next week. They're going to disintegrate mid-flight and stab me with bits of frayed copper aren't they.
I wonder what it would score "spawny-eyed parrot-faced wazzock"
Any chance we could get that Russian submarine serviceable in time?
Sounds like a job for a ramping up rate limit...
Based on the number of non existent submissions over the previous 24 hours, add a slight delay to the process.
They could make it require an API key. 10 an hour is not throttled and is free, above that start charging, because I'm sure the "lawyers" will be charging their client for submitting x thousand DMCA requests even if 99.9% are complete crap.
Car (and IoT) manufacturers really need to be dragged into security training.
Just because you could make a certain thing possible remotely, you need to stop and ask "should I?".
Why would anyone want to unlock the doors via the internet connected ap? It's pretty unlikely that feature will be used by genuine owners anywhere near as many times as it'll be used by someone keen to steal the contents of the boot.
If you *really* must have keyless door opening, only support it over a short range communication such as bluetooth, or RFID.
Next, starting the car remotely... Okay, to prewarm on a cold morning it's nice, but you don't need to disable the interior alarm, or unlock the doors, release the steering lock, or allow the hard/parking brake to be release and a gear engaged... If those happen kill the engine and set off the arm. (Release of rattle snake from glove-box optional).
And don't forget to give the owner of the car a method of deleting previously authorised users/devices without requiring a visit to a main dealer.
Good grief... Whatever next, cash machines running windows 3.1.1...
if you think that's bad, you should see if via a RDP session! **shudder**
Press F12 and you get Chrome-devtools, although the window title very quickly changes to remove the chrome reference.
A bit of further digging (and the fact it has Chromium PDF viewer plug-in pre-installed) revealed it's based on Blink, which is a fork of Webkit used by Chrome/Opera, so it should render pretty much the same.
It seems pretty quick, and I rather like the look of the theme I picked, so I might actually give this a go for a while, although the coordinated tabs between my desktop browser and mobile browser is a bit of a must-have, so I'll have to see if that can be done.
Posted from my Vivaldi browser window.
It's either UPNP being it's usual helpful self (i.e. too helpful and opening up everything), or people with absolutely no clue what they're doing and routing ports themselves.
There is *no* reason 99.9% of the printer owning population of the world would want or need their printer to be visible from the intertubes.
The 0.1% who do should be the ones who have to jump through hoops to do it and have it done properly (VPN).
The IoT is going to be a lot of fun for some people.
i think you mean they're looking at it wrong.
NIC's really need to have a very fast link to the ARM core, otherwise they're just painfully slow.
Unfortunately most of the little arm chips don't have the necessary fast external bus for this, so they hang it onto something else, like USB (e.g. the Raspberry Pi). This work, but is terribly slow. That's why the Pi is still only 10/100, and can't get anywhere near the 100Mb/s ceiling anyway.
Some board have the required hardware in the ARM silicon, so they *do* have a fast connection (e.g. Odroid C2). They're usually easy to spot as the have gigabit ethernet, and certainly in the case of the Odroid board, really do deliver on network bandwidth.
So for a dual NIC board you ideally need to find an ARM with a pair of MACs built in, with the external connectivity to drive a pair of external PHYs at a good speed.
Yes, I'd love a fast dual NIC little board too.
Sensor equipped farm machinery does help feed the planet, and save the planet too.
For example, integrating the yield data during harvesting across a field gives fantastic information about how the soil quality varies within the field, and is used to vary the amount of nutrients put onto the soil at the start of the next growing season.
The result is higher crop yield and less wastage of fertilizer.
I feel your pain. I remember setting one up on a bank a few years ago... It insisted I used between 6 and 8 characters. No caps, no numbers, no symbols and objected when I had too many letters repeated.
I kept meaning to sit down and calculate the number of passwords that would then be left as valid to their system.
It's probably about a dozen! j/k!
But it's good to see that p455w0rd1 isn't on the list, so I'm still safe!
There are a couple which have me mystified though. On the face of it they don't look "too" bad, I just can't work out the pattern that has made them so popular.
Can anyone enlighten me to the blatantly obvious pattern which has whooshed right over my head?
I wonder how many servers are sending that?
I'd like a new tablet. My Nexus 7 (2013 model) is getting a bit long in the tooth, a bit battered and out of the support upgrade window, but I can't see anything to replace it with which isn't stupidly expensive.
So much so that when my mother wanted a tablet last Christmas, I bought her a 2013 Nexus 7, and she loves it. (I'm going to be the family IT support, so I might as well pick one I know!).
All the other tablets round that price point are landfill offerings from supermarkets, or attempted lock-ins like Amazon.
It's a little disappointing that 3 years ago a well made quad core, 2gig RAM tablet with a lovely 1200 x 1920 screen (and stereo speakers) could be bought for so little, and now you just can't get anything comparable.
What if the tallow was obtained from an animal which had died happily of old age. Surely then it's just perfectly green recycling?
I guess it could also be extracted from various human limbs certain religions deem it acceptable to hack off for various transgressions. I wonder if Saudi Arabia has thought about a possible export market?
Oh they haven't. You should see all the rules and regs that are about to come into full force.
The tobacco legislation does more to screw small, independant e-cig manufacturers, and juice suppliers, than anything I can think of. I have no idea how that could have happened...
Only huge companies will be able to work in the market... Oh look, here come BAT and Philip Morris.
Well of course they can now see stopping the burning leaf production, they've managed to push through all the laws required in Europe to push any small players out, and now they can dominate the vaping market.
Well certainly not competent... Honestly...
This is the kind of coding assumption which was laughable twenty years ago, now it's gross negligence.
Rule #1 of C programming is never assume the length of the data you are being given!
(OK, it's probably not rule #1, but it damn well should be!).
The rocket engineering expertise for both Russia and USA's space programs was provided by the Nazi rocket engineers they managed to grab at the end of the war.
Or able to read countless signs in a language they are fluent enough to argue in 5 minutes later...
So that's a fair bit of work for someone at Google maps to move half the country along a bit!
Don't get me started on the twats who fly on budget airlines... I always get stuck behind the ones in knee-high lace up boots who have failed to notice everyone before them has been asked to remove footware.
Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person with the common sense to unlace shoes whilst queuing and tuck the laces inside for a quick remove... Not to mention removing my belt and placing everything from my trouser pockets in my coat pockets, bar my phone, for a quick remove and dump into the trays.
I'm still seeing people having litre bottles of water removed from them at security, and they're still looking perplexed (despite walking past two dozen signs whilst queuing).
That would be the only hope...
Andrew's complete failure to mention which antiquated version of Android it ships with (which you will be forever burdened with) does not fill me with hope for the shipped OS.
Oh, I take that back... It's got Marshmallow according to the manufacturer's website... It'll never get an update mind.
Removing books is a bit knee-jerk TBH, anyone who has paid attention in a chemistry class at school (assuming those haven't also been banned), knows how to make something which will go *bang*.
Given the Chinese made gunpowder for thousands of years, it's obviously not made of anything exotic, which would be hard to acquire.
More exotic explosives are a little trickier, but still within the abilities of a backyard chemist. A few minutes on google and wikipedia would provide plenty of information.
And if all that fails, you could just smuggle a Samsung phone into your hold luggage ;-)
@Mooseman - They'd miss it by some 12 miles...
They're actually aimed at services on the M1...
If the cops are going to charge him, he should just withdraw his statement...
And let anyone who wants to contradict him come forward... ;-)
This uncertainty and procrastination is doing more damage to the UK economy than a leave or remain could ever do.
Whatever you're going to do, just get on and do it!
Just one Typhoon is loud enough thank you!
Pity we flogged all the Harriers off to the US Marines for spares, now that would enable some truly unique formation flying...
Spitfires? Whilst they would sound amazing, they're a bit too rare, old and delicate to start giving that kind of loading on the airframe regularly! They won't even let the BBMF fly formation in low cloud in these days, let alone pull any stunts!
Because one of the few times English has a gender for an non-living object is for boats, and they're female.
If you really want to go and start a noun gender fight, I believe Spanish and Italian share quite a few nouns, but disagree on the gender of the item.
You can see the sea. It's over there between the land and the sky.
I suspect the author has never used an Android device in his life... Notifications copied from iOS? Errr, I think he'll find that iOS copied them from Android, quite a few years ago!
Oh well, at least we know where all the Apple Fanboys have moved to since the Verge and Guardian started to escape the distortion field... Bad news for El Reg.
Or have we all just been trolled?
Bad El Reg... BAD!
