Eh?

Can someone translate this into understandableish:-

"ESA researchers estimate that a one million second point source observation at 511 keV using a gamma lens would be 100 times as effective as current research techniques."

What happened to the rumoured iPhone nano?

That would be an excellent companion for a iPad3 wifi, as long as it allowed tethering.

You see, I only want a phone for calls. Even 4" displays are too small for web, email etc, so I use the iPad for that.

"rebranding Foxconn kit"

Are you just trying to be inflammatory?

Foxconn don't design any of the parts inside, that's down to apple, samsung, qualcomm etc.

All foxconn do is solder, clip and glue the bits together.

The same is true of almost every company. Even the silly morgan car company of whom Harvery-Jones said "if they could grow the trees for the wood they use in the chassis, they would do that"

So just give it up, eh?

Re: How to generate classical random bits from lolcat fluctuations

Too complex.

The simple solution is to attach a piece of buttered toast to the back of the cat. Throw the cat in the air and see which way it lands.

Oh-oh

Who writes this subhead shit?

"Foxconn-rebranding biz "

Either the writer of this is a total numpty, or has been tasked by the head Vulture to keep El Reg on the wrong side of Apple PR Dept.

Neither of those possibilities are in any way a respectable way for proper journalists to operate.

Re: Re: The most intelligent reaction I can think of

Well, no.

If they were at all competent, they would have done these tests before they published their ridiculous result.

I hope they don't lose their jobs, but if they do, there's plenty of work for them in the Cold Fusion field.

Foxconn allegedly hid underage workers from inspectors

amanfromearth

Re: "underage workers of 16-17 years old"?

Yet the chinese government who made those laws appear to have no interest in enforcing them.

Whilst I give credit to Apple for getting involved, surely it's the government should do this?

Third of Blighty stuck on snail-speed broadband

Science will fix it

What we need is a better Neutrino detector. Then use NeutrinoNet for transmission.

If they can travel through 750km of rock at light speed, then surely no problems for home broadband..
