NOAH then MOSES .....
.... followed by the JESUS machine that enables rescue workers to travel safely across the surface of floodwaters.
Any suggestions for the meaning of this acronym?

Do HMRC charge the pub for the usual tax and VAT on the amount registered at the till and then charge him for adjusted capital gains tax when he converts then to pounds - or does it count as a foreign currency transaction (assuming he declaes any of it)?
Do HMRC have any idea how to deal with this?
Pink Floyd didn't get paid for writing their songs and composing their music. They only got paid when they produced something so good that people kept on wanting to buy it and listen to it. What was it that you did umpteen years ago that was so good that it still has value to people and why didn't you have the foresight to keep the IP to it?
If a US citizen doesn't have a valid US passport, that would make it very difficult for them to get back into the US from a foreign visit. However, it would not stop them entering a foreign country if the government of that country was sure of their identity and was willing to let them enter.
Now that they've got their presentation options sorted out so it gives headlines and not a glossy magazine format with giant pictures. The website is very good (clean and simple) but the Android app still has some glitches. Note: Feedly does some kind of in-page browser rendering which can cause problems if you want to do detailed stuff in Android.
I gave up on Newsblur after many problems with updating feeds and read counts.
"Indians working for the country’s outsourcing giants in the US have contributed more than $15bn in taxes and social security payments in the past five years."
If they were replaced by American workers, they would contribute more than that $15bn and not take money out of the country. That's the point.
Wouldn't it be easier to make a hard/software PDP-11 emulator that was power plug and I/O plug compatible with the PDP-11? It would be a lot smaller for a start.
(In the late '70s, as a student engineer, it was my task to boot up a Nova-820 (?) every morning by setting toggle switches and similar retro activities. Ahhhh, those were the days.)
Testing a range of mobile phones using software benchmarks, you can probably only measure battery current; unless you do some tricky attachment of current probes onto very fine pcb tracks or chip pins. As far as the user is concerned, the only thing that matters is battery current, which determines life before recharge is needed.
Actual chip power measurements would be useful for high power desktop and server applications where heat production (and dumping) is a very important factor.
When I clicked the final link, to the review of the coffee shop, on my Asus Transformer, I managed to read the first two sentences before the browser shut down and I found myself back at the home screen. Is this an example of emergent intelligence tryng to protect me, or itself perhaps?
Jony Ive and a team of Apple engineers lock themselves away inside Apple headquarters for a week and have pizzas delivered. One week later, they emerge with a 'newly developed' set of icons and maybe some UI tweaks that are well thought out and generally accepted as very good indeed.
Tim Cook announces, "See, we listen to our user's concerns about usability, clarity and compatibility, unlike SOME companies who make changes."
I have one of those shaving brushes, but I bought it from the Body Shop so I'm sure that it (and most) are made from artificial fibres that have been coloured to look like badger hair. Besides that, consider the difficulties involved in combing a badger and gathering the hairs, etc.
However, if an area doesn't have decent quality fibre/cable, then the telcos have probably decided it's not worth laying it to that area. So why should a mobile company built a mast there and run backhaul to it?
I'd agree that high mobile data rates are not much use to most people under the present data charging tariffs.
"Foundational to NetApp's data protection strategy is the ability to take numerous, space-efficient snapshots without incurring a performance penalty and thus adversely affecting users or applications."
.... but it's one of the clunkiest sentences I've seen recently.
