No no no and no. Why would the UK be chained by the EU? Companies selling to the EU yes but as a country applying to global trade and actually participating in the world... no.
China can set their own standards because they're a bloc of a billion people. The EU because it's a bloc of 500 million people. The US because it's a block of 320 million people. 65 million people don't get to dictate standards. The UK was a part of that standards setting process across the whole of the EU and helped set standards that were convenient for it. Now it does not have a say in that.
Why? Are you suggesting we stop selling to the EU and cut them off in some sort of nationalist nuttiness? Sorry but I cannot agree with your nationalist view, why would we cut people off when we can trade with anyone who is interested? Or are you saying the EU is so petty and childish that they would cut us off? If so then why do we want to be chained to them?
My nationalist view? How do you think the UK will make products from materials and parts which travel three times across the Channel if it's out of the single market and customs union? How do you suppose that it will supply materials and parts to other EU countries? Answer: It won't. There will be customs tariffs and trade will be slower due to customs checks... useless when it comes to JIT economies. Distance is still important so why is it in the UK's interest to make things more difficult to trade with our neighbours if we can't trade just as easily with distant countries?
Not the EU? Thanks for clearing that up. So the Euro has nothing to do with the EU (Euro clearing threats + various banking threats). Oddly these threats do seem to be insular in nature by threatening to retreat from the world into the cartel borders. Almost nationalistic if the EU was to be one nation.
Are we talking about businesses or the euro? This article is about businesses relocating, not the euro. The UK had the good sense to opt out of the euro yet as part of the EU it could sell euro-based financial services. If it leaves then it can't sell euro-based financial services and if it goes back in then a euro opt-out won't be an option.
Yes. How did we live without the EU dictating standards?
You don't think that the UK helped set some of those standards? Standards setting wasn't uni directional but it will be now because the UK will be forced to follow the EU unless the UK wants strange more-expensive cars, TV, telecoms, etc...
So not an EU success then? Is Germany now the only example of success? I guess it helps when the Euro forces their currency to be artificially low while at the same time artificially too high for Greece. The success of a country through the destruction of others is not really a success story.
However the EU is good for the UK as it is 42% of the UK's exports. Leaving it will be the wilful self-destruction of the UK.
And based on your time scales above how many months are these businesses needing when the EU seem almost desperate to accommodate their move?
It's several different countries touting for business, not the EU. Ye gods.
All of this depends on if some accommodation over residency or citizenship is sorted out. Nobody can plan anything, everyone could be flying back after B-Day and applying for residency from an embassy in London and waiting for a reply, something which an entire company can't afford to do.
Not the cleverest of ideas to leave the EEA, but then again the Tory party was never a meritocracy.
And (again depending on the model, I'll give you that), it is not that difficult to enable root via recovery.
There you go:
Given that on Android you can often wipe the lock screen PIN/pattern with ADB and Samsung phones were caught storing the fingerprint in a world readable file I wouldn't trust it that much.
With the WM version you still need to log in with your password before confirming with your phone. The iOS and Android versions just let you confirm with your phone without any need for a password.
The WM version is more secure... logging in requires something you have and know, versus the other two versions that just use something you have (don't get it stolen).
There's a lot of two factor authentication that isn't that, what they mean is they've just shifted authentication to your phone.
But the fact that MS couldn't be arsed to update the app means WM is still dead.
Including IBM itself with PC/2.
And after it was shown it was a) bad behaviour and b) a regression, he locked the issue.
And then some people wonder why systemd isn't liked...
Trump probably owes him the election result.
Buffalos often have an official ddwrt build, from that you can update to a newer ddwrt build from their website or put openwrt on it.
I do like the way the first two build numbers have the same release version and then the next two build numbers are lower than the first two, again with the same release version. Reassuring, that.
This is when they had that bust up with Mobileye and decided to bring the software in house. They dressed it up as an Enhanced Autopilot with features to be rolled out in the future, what it meant was a new AI had to learn everything again from scratch and some features that were working before the update were disabled in the meantime.
So people can legitimately have a routine which includes cash machines, petrol stations, and vending machines so they run the risk of getting locked out paying with PIN (the only way) because they've got a fingerprint card.
That's if a fingerprint card is useful anyway. Presumably if someone's security minded they won't get a fingerprint card and if they're not then contactless will do for them and they will never use it over the Internet because card issuers won't force their customers to buy USB card readers as it'll just drive them off.
Fingerprints have advantages and disadvantages over PINs but being better than a PIN is not a particularly high bar. Customers don't find PINs easy to use and they are not particularly secure.
So how do you get a fingerprint scan if you insert the card into a cash machine, petrol station, or vending machine slot?
You're not going to be able to forget your PINs because PIN will be a fallback in these places. You will, however, be more likely to forget your PIN if you use it less.
Oh, and fraudsters will use the PIN of course. Or magstripe. Or an online gateway which requires hardly any info before taking payment.
Yet Android still can't manage low latency audio, and you'd expect a full grown up OS to be able to do that.
The iPhone's functionality may be restricted or cut back, but the fundamentals underneath are sound. Multitasking was limited for apps for a reason, that reason being battery life.
Oops, I knew what I wanted to say but it went wrong somewhere before typing.
Well it should be OpenBSD, the best of all the BSDs. That'll bring the debate to a close on this thread.
iOS started off as a cut-down version of MacOS which itself is based on OpenBSD. Your problems with it are you don't like the launcher and there's no external memory card support, so you don't like what they're selling, not that it's out of date.
I wouldn't buy one either.
Forgive me if I'm less than enthusiastic.
For when the blood splatters aren't real enough.
How many versions of WebKit and Blink are there out there?
It shouldn't be a problem to develop for Gecko too if you stick to standards, it's not as if Firefox is like IE where you need to design a page again for it.
So much for code signing.
There was a Google Play Edition of the S4, sold only in the US.
Presumably some kind of deal with Google helped Samsung management change their minds, but when the deal finished they went back to their default belief that throwing shit at a wall and seeing what sticks works.
In other words, a factory reset, which is probably grounds for the marigolds.
Some MS hipster geek boss will come out and supply a mobile phone VM running on Windows 10 for Insiders connected to Skype for voice and Azure cloud for Continuum to prove it's not dead.
Meanwhile in the real world, it's dead.
How could Google force OEMs not to sell Android phones in Russia? AOSP is open source and every internationally recognised court which deals with trade disputes would find against Google.
Presumably the housemaid takes care of everything.
Business which knows nothing about what it's getting into except it wants to do a shiny app thing goes to 3rd party who proceeds to sell them snake oil.
... as a software update by concatenating text messages in base64 is a rather expensive option.
All of those have ended up with non-payments to licensees and manufacturers getting rid of stock directly to recover money.
What's the moral? If you want a Spectrum emulator connected to the TV use a Pi, if you want a handheld one run a homebrew emulator on a Nintendo DS.
Maybe the Spectrum Next will manage where everyone else has failed.
I think the VCs (all hail the VCs) decided that Canonical could be another RedHat, which is okay I suppose but hardly cutting edge. It's doubtful they understood the potential of Unity if it were executed properly.
I think VLC is technically illegal in the US because it plays DVDs with DeCSS.
When VLC is outlawed then only outlaws will have VLC?
VideoLan could safely make a no DVD version since that's another thing that's been dropped in the endless quest to make laptops paper thin (and cut costs).
No, that's not a situation you want to be in... Trying to do your work and then you get other things piled on top from the hard of thinking.
The final version of Vista (with the platform update and so on) is more or less Windows 7, but was mercifully spared the GWX malware.
The main problems were drivers and hardware power, both of which solved themselves. And, with the benefit of hindsight, it's not that bad compared to Windows 8 and 10, is it?
Anything that doesn't have Play Store isn't shiny. A manufacturer can't just have Play Store, it must all the gapps and follow Google's conditions.
A manufacturer can set up its own app store but good luck attracting developers.
nVidia do control their own chipset, unlike others which are left to the mercy of Qualcomm and MediaTek who decide they're not going to produce updated drivers for older chipsets.
Is another company slurping my contacts and call history a selling point? I disabled it. If someone calls me selling stuff I say I'm not interested, hang up, then add them onto the blacklist.
As of yet I have not been offered an update on Storm.
But if I am I probably won't accept it. Where's Privacy Guard? It's cold outside the Cyanogen house, wondering the blasted windswept hills of Android where highwaymen roam free with impunity and rob travellers of their data. And do I want another highwayman (Yandex) suddenly appearing on it? Probably not.
Lineage has builds for Wileyfox phones, at the cost of having to wipe everything and restoring from backup. I may do that when they've got a stable build and I've got a weekend (should this really be necessary for a modern phone?).
That's GSM 2G where you can fake any base station and the phone happily connects to it, Amadeus where you just type in a PAX and get all their data, WWW which was invented by a Brit, and the EU which is made up of 28 countries, two and a half of which are francophone.
Your point, if there ever was one, is lost on me. There are bad projects everywhere.
I don't know about up to date but the traffic data is available from the menu you get when you tap the bottom-righr button.
Cold, poisonous gravel for food? Luxury. When I were a lad we dreamt of cold poisonous gravel for Christmas dinner. Etc.... Etc...
Alternatively use Here Maps (now unfortunately called Here We Go) and download the whole continent if you like.
