I'm just glad to see that Apple hasn't lost touch with it's customers in these austere times.
It's a phone, with a PDA function and if it wasn't for Android being the satanic love child of Google, we'd all be using [them] instead.
Some marketing plonker must have done too much coke methinks.
Surprised that Wales isn't included.
For those of you who aren't aware, Wales is a nation that's a part of the United Kingdom and has over three million inhabitants.
Admittedly it's fairly dispersed, but Cardiff would have been a good place to start and it's not much further than Bristol.
Welsh assembly; you toothless tribe of final salary pension-drawing elves, you've failed again.
Now that's classy!
Top marks for style, and... a steam roller too.
£2M profit in 3 months?
A company the size of VF only gererated £2M in 3 months?
Is this a misprint or will shareholders be baying for a new CEO before long?
Protect your expensive kit/drives now..
It's easy to do, take some tin foil, wrap the device, then earth it.
Admittedly, you iPhone won't be much good while wrapped, but you can spare all of your kitten pictures and "jazz film" collection.
Ad vendors use complex algorithms to ascertain the maximum "pod" length that can be run before a viewer will simply go elsewhere.
We only have ourselves to blame.
Nice work El Reg!
It's only 9am (ish) and already there's 5 pages of comments.
Ad brokers will be rubbing their hands with glee.
How about running a story with a headline "Linux is better than Windows: Official"?
I'm excited to see where Mr Moffat is taking The Doctor.
...providing that there's absolutely no "love interest" nonsense.
I think it would devalue the show and potentially be the worst thing to ever happen to Dr Who since that John Barrowman spinoff.
Re: do we really need to simulate this?
I'm not a nuclear physicist and don't know which type of plutonium they pulled out of Windscale back in the 1950's, but it's certainly one or the other.
As nobody set off any old nukes, the AWE need to understand if they will still reach the critical mass to cause a chain reaction... or if they'll open a vortex into another dimension where beasties and people much scarier than the fat Nork bloke (with the bad hair) live.
You may as well just hire a wedding DJ.
Corporate gigs are the worst place to enjoy yourself either as an attendee or a performer.
This old chestnut?
Unless they can buy a tier one broadcaster and simply use their assets it's not going to work.
According to The Independent, Three has gone tango-uniform today.
Delightful news; I'm really happy for the team that made this a success.
Finally it makes launching tings into orbit a bit less expensive and who knows, perhaps India will start to plan for reaching further than just high orbit.
Re: Seems like Google features from 2013
Yes, and their maps are ok (ish) too.
I can only guess the worry of some of the medical students about calling their parents...
Re: The world turned upside down!
It's all gone covfefe.
Re: So that's why
Sky won't be toot worried, they know most users consume their advert-ladened "premium" content off of their satellite service.
Forgive me for posing such an obvious question, but I thought all you Linux enthusiasts were able to fix anything.
Is there an underlying problem that prevents you?
I'm reminded of that scene in Blazing Saddles where The Governor demands a "huurumph" from those in the room to protect their phoney-baloney jobs.
I wrote my MP about this and received a "stock" answer.
The problem (as stated many times above) is politicians do NOT understand the world we all live within and they don't want to either.
If only Android wasn't Google...
Hang on... isn't all that expensive x-ray hardware supposed to find explosives inside stuff?
Or, are they worried that someone will be able to penetrate the avionics (of the aircraft) and crash it from a command line?
Re: Maybe they should consider going over to Linux?
Customer is king.
Someone wants to spend many millions on my software and requires it to run on (let's say) an obscure BSD variant, I'd make that happen.
If I didn't, someone else would and that would be money on their balance sheet and not mine.
As a fail-safe, just ban all air travel from anywhere except Israel (of course).
Re: Hmm, bugger off, government. I didn't elect you, and I don't respect you
This is how it works.
"Or are they selling the collected data that's the essence of personalisation?"
We aren't getting any younger.
Where better to test these systems, but on a really challenging route into The Capital.
Getting through Oxford is bad enough, but if they can manage Jericho to Elephant and Castle (reliably), I'm in baby!
Considering most drivers on the south-bound M40 are already on auto pilot, it won't affect anyone too much.
I'd be on the front row (to be a passenger) providing that when the door opens you're greeted with a "Welcome to Johnny Cabs".
How long before Last Week Tonight runs an ad in the Washington DC area (on Fox News) that says:
"Ok Google, show me evidence of man-made climate change"
Shareholders demanded cost saving.
I'm sure they are all delighted with the result.
Content is king
... alway was and always will be.
Apple will need to 'land' a major OTT publisher at the very least to make Apple TV really work.
Re: Churn factor
Sky 1 does make some linear television (in the style of a bad ITV franchisee from the 1980's).
I take your point, but I'd hardly put Atlantic in the same bucket, Sky 1 is a mixed entertainment channel... although entertainment is a subjective term.
Sky's biggest weakness is customers cancel their contracts - especially during the break between football seasons.
While Sky has all the box set and films, they still haven't made the breakthrough with normal television entertainment. A cursory glance on the overnight data shows that even E4 gets more viewers than Sky's 'flagship' Sky1 channel.
My only hope is the one day, El Reg hacks will be running the Daily M*il.
It's still pretty impressive.
I'm still amazed by the dynamics and how they can take exactly the correct amount of fuel into orbit - and still have enough for breaking and landing.
Some clever people working for Elon.
Re: This is nothing
Nothing wrong with Groove Armada.
You may also wish to register a complaint with ITV directly about this.
Unless you're on a terrible access network, somewhere rural or on a saturated ADSL, there's no real reason you shouldn't be able to watch live linear content in pseudo HD.
Blimey, this really is the stuff of nightmares.
I took my daughter to Wagamama on the Thames Embankment last week.
When I got home I had an email from them asking for NPS ratings.
I thought I must have used my phone for something and logged into their free wifi, but no...
Phones off from now-on.
Re: OTT, it's the future lads.
Wasn't meaning to disparage the Kodi platform.
I was an XBMC user for years and found it very useful.
Re: Not just the BBC
Do you have any proof of this?
I know World Service is paid for (or used to be) by a grant from The Foreign Office, but GCHQ? I think you're mistaken.
Is The Telegraph message board closed again today?
Because then it would not be The BBC, it would be a commercial broadcaster...
oh, you're being a troll..
Not true, the prototype had a DRM.
This has nothing to do with if the user is a verified LFP, it have everything to do with the rights 'deal' negotiated with the content producer or rights holder.
For instance, certain sports are available via television (UHF, dSAT, cable), but the rights don't cover IPTV.
The usual reason is the additional [rights] cost of publishing content to the internet or that other distributors have a deal to charge for that content online.
That stock picture looks like one of The Chuckle Brothers, was this a concious decision?
Whoever closed this deal must have the biggest expense account in the history of direct selling.
This kind of thing happens all the time with governmental procurement and it's not going to stop.
..to the team that obtained funding for this 'study'.
I wished I'd stayed in academia, it's much more fun than all this real stuff.
Good work India...
You can shoot a ballistic missile out of the sky, but you still have children living on railway lines and nearly 30% of your population lives in poverty.
I suspect the MOD is trying to get a bigger budget for its UUV programme.
Most of would pay...
for the ability to see exactly what we want.
I have a paid subscription with a non-UK OTT sports provider that shows all PL football matches.
I'd rather not have to mess around paying some dodgy 'gas-rich' country's broadcasting arm money, but I like football and they have a service I can watch it on.
The rights holders only have themselves to blame, people will always find a way to get what they want.
*I also have Sky and BT Sports subscriptions.
