This is not a stylus. It's an Apple Pencil. Completely different thing, you see. Just keep drinking the kool-aid.

and we should still use AT keyboards and serial mice, or at a pinch PS2. We don't want any of this new-fangled USB nonsense.
What happened to my 20" disk platters though? They had their issues, but we could work around them. You could easily lose these 2.5" disks, you know.
Also, bring back 2.1mm jacks for low voltage power. They worked fine for my grandad; no need for anything more convenient.
AA batteries are fine, but why not keep powering portable equipment with PP9 lantern packs?
Things change. At least they're making the rack bigger so that any 19" kit you've got could be fitted with a trivial adapter bracket.
The link they click on doesn't have to be in a comment.
The example in the article creates a malicious link in the comment that they didn't mean to post, but only as an example of something that would pass the basic sanitisation that wordpress performs.
Were they really relying on a 64(ish)-bit RNG to never produce a collision, or where they also checking that the output was unique too.
Personally I would never sign-off on the former because Murphy's law will kick in at some point. If something has a 1 in a billion chance of going wrong, it will do so 9 times out of 10.
You're missing something... America is simply Russia's puppet (apparently). Any advances America might make are attributable to Mother Russia. Funding a presidential campaign is far cheaper than funding all that messy R&D
"The FBI threat is a threat, I didn’t do anything illegal," he told The Register. "I didn’t break or hack anything. Everything was open."
You may well be perfectly innocent, but you probably shouldn't plan to travel to/through the USA unless you want a particularly prolonged stay. The have form for detaining researchers who embarrass them.
Let me guess, you drive an Audi?
The radio has a speed-dependant volume (marketed as gala effect), so it has a speed pulse input. Being German, they work natively in SI units.
The first generation of it used a dedicated pin that delivered a pulse, the frequency of which indicated the speed. Later iterations used the CAN bus which also negated the need to enter a PIN after changing battery etc as it keyed itself to the serial number of the dash ECU.
When working locally, you bring your own lunch from home. Total cost to you, maybe £2. When travelling somewhat locally, you (probably) get fast-food somewhere, probably costing £5-10. When staying away, you will be expected to eat a proper meal in the evening, which means a restaurant and the costs inherent with that vs cooking your own meal at home.
You're not really claiming the cost of the meal, but the difference in cost compared to eating your own food. As it's not practical to assign a value to home-prepared food, that's assumed to be £0
The government devised porn filter is yet to be proven effective. I wouldn't use it as an example of "see, they can do it" because within about 3 seconds of it being deployed, it'll be bypassed.
OK, it's probably the same in the social networks will manage to skirt around any equivalent law, but that's presumably not the point you were trying to make.
and why wouldn't they be sending through talktalk? The user cannot change their password, so no risk there. Any SPF or DKIM that talktalk might apply will automatically pass.
OK, if the account gets closed down then they'll probably start sending the same messages through a 3rd party, but as things stand there's no reason to do so.
Allowing people to sue and/or fines won't achieve what you expect.
It'll simply lead to a higher rate of companies being declared bankrupt.
Big companies will undoubtedly set up a plethora of small companies that you 'actually' do business with so that they can be wound-up as needed.
That ~23 cups per second claim is rather dubious...
According to their data, they have 140 litres of water on board and it uses 1000 litres in 25 minutes. Therefore it has a runtime of ((140/1000)x25) = 3.5 minutes = 210 seconds.
210x23 = 4830 cups of tea per tankful.
140 litres (remember, the tank capacity) / 4830 cups = 29ml per cup. That's slightly less than 2 tablespoons per cup. If someone served me that as a cup of tea, I'd be mightily disappointed.
It also generally works out cheaper in the long run to buy a system like this rather than building your own, running in the necessary cables, tweaking it when it doesn't quite work properly and eventually giving up and buying the commercial version anyway.
Don't worry AC, we've all been there. Firewall rules on colo servers, VPN to customer sites, etc etc.
Sometimes you can cobble together something to get you back in, sometimes you have to phone up and eat humble pie. Sometimes you can just put it off until you're next on-site and fix it discretely.
So, because the number is non-routable, you assume that it will be routed to a miscreant. Rather than realising that it can only connect to a service provided by the carrier?
The key here is that you dial 333 from your '3' phone. It's not an incoming call with a spoofed number. All carriers in the UK operate similar shortcodes.
The builders that built my house decided that the best way to attach the shower to the wall was the grip-ring of a push-fit fitting and rely on the water pipe to hold it in place. No screws needed.
Surprisingly it lasted about 3 years before it jumped off in the middle of the night and sprayed water everywhere.
Girlfriend panicked. I calmly turned the water supply off and went back to sleep.
5 minutes work in the morning with a power drill and a couple of screws sorted it properly. And lots of cursing of the lazy bastard builders for not doing that.
