"I pay $5 a year for 20GB ..."
I pay nothing for 30GB because I have two Google accounts (15GB on each Google Drive). Is that $5 a year your gateway to further free allowances?

Does this have anything to do with the spread of STDs, as was recently covered by an El Reg article?
"The majority of material in a chip is support. We only use less than a couple of micrometers for everything else, ..."
Isn't that true for silicon base chips as well? Silicon is not poisonous.
If the cellulose base degrades, doesn't that release the gallium arsenide (etc) active components? If a silicon chip is disposed of, at least the metals and other compounds are safely and physically locked into it.
It may be that the driving force behind this development is the energy and other costs of manufacture, especially for short run batches of specialist devices.
Just to satisfy my nerdy curiosity, I tried to sign up to The Register as 'Jake' but it told me that the user name has already been taken. So, either there is a 'Jake', or (more likely) usernames are case insensitive for signup purposes - but not for posting or reference purposes as jake has so definitely indicated. He once corrected me about his name but I accept that names can be regarded as highly personal.
(Yes, I need to get out more.)

"As to whether parents should ban the mobile phone at home, Prof Beland told us: “I cannot answer this question with our data.”
Meanwhile, a Daily Mail columnist and wife of a senior UK politician has made the obvious connection that seems to have eluded these so-called scientists.,
Will there be any controversial sex scenes?
"Wijgergangs also highlights another advantage of the Z-Wave spec - by using the 900MHz frequency, rather than ZigBee's (and WiFi's and Thread's) 2.5GHz frequency, the spectrum is less cluttered. And that can translate to significantly less power usage as it reduces the number of retries needed to send data."
So, if every (future) device uses Z-Wave, there's your messy orgy right there.
There would still be an eventual discrepancy because Earth's rotation speed is _continuously_ slowing down. There is nothing 'sacred' about the defined caesium standard, but it is very stable and accurate and easily reproduced by scientists all over the world, which is why it's used.
"This would switch the blocking on by default, targeting Google, which the mobile networks want to encourage to share revenue."
Imagine if the Post Office demanded a percentage of the value of goods shipped from Ebay purchases, because "ebay and its sellers are making a lot of money and we should have some of it".
"To make the calculations, the client’s data is loaded into the secure hardware in the cloud, where the data is decrypted, processed and re-encrypted."
Doesn't that mean giving the 'cloudy box' your encryption keys? Or maybe the cloudy box sends you a key that you use to encrypt your data first, before sending it off. Anyone?
Is this of some significance in the Chinese belief of the meaningfulness of numbers, or have all the 'cool' dot-com names been taken already?
. "Interestingly, Chinese consumers are even buying tea from the UK."
Ah, the cultural imperialist spearhead force of Tetley Tea Folk. The Chinese have no idea what they've let themselves in for.
