That last paragraph looks like the best they can do is lose 300M in 5 years. Keep up the good work guys, obviously going in the right direction.

"I had not realised that an algorithm, programmed by an engineer, can, for example, take the decision to bin an application,"
Probably get better results than say - a busy HR person just binning the bottom two thirds of the CV pile. But heaven forbid, how can I go to one of my old school chums with my child's CV if it's going to be looked at by a thing that didn't go to a nice school.
I really must remember that the next time I go to pick up a badger
but maybe the priority should go to remembering to put on chainmail.
Re: Can anyone say "SCADA"?
Possibly because if you're getting the internet from a cell tower taking down the power to that tower also takes down your internet connection anyway.

Re: The Oscars are clueless
So your were all ready to go - as what? The carpet licker or the one with mental illness?
I heard some wise person once say "banks are just websites with a banking license". If Lloyds outsources the website what are you left with? A management team and some high street shops that you are desperate to get rid of?
What's to stop IBM getting a banking license and then offering to buy the Lloyds brand at a knock-down price?
Wouldn't surprise me if the type of horse got changed as the story got passed around as the real type is probably very complex (e.g. 3/4 Danish warmblood, 1/8 Haflinger, 1/8 donkey). Most people know thoroughbred means expensive, it's the Champagne of horses.
"face-to-face encounter, either in person or through other means"
I really don't fancy a face-to-face encounter without my person being there at the same time.
Re: @ It's understandable...
The English vocabulary has lots of words for describing sounds: treble, bass, midrange, soprano, alto, tenor, crackly, wow, noisy.
No, you can't because I own the trademark on 'Hey, gritters'
Thankfully it's only patents
It could be something important.
How does this compare to LDPC?
The post is required, and must contain letters.
Is it me?
I see phrases like "systems technology" and "electronic eye" and I think the 1960s are back.
One more thing, if their electronic eye is meant to detect cloud and route around it the plane will never get to Inverness.

Don't do that, your health insurance provider will work out how much coffee you drink.
Re: Put an x86 processor in the dock?
Yes, very sensible, except for licensing. Do you add a license cost to each dock in which case it may as well be a PC with a USB cable to access to phone data? If not then there is nothing stopping you buying a cheap windows phone and running Exchange Pro-Annihilator on the dock with no license payable.
On stuff that old the colour of an LED is usually visible, the prompt is probably burnt into the CRT phosphor. flashing I can't explain, maybe he was blinking.
I just tried "Show pictures of me Percy"
and got quite a surprise. Well done Google. Some of those photos weren't even taken by me and I can't remember it happening but hey, the camera never lies.

Because the PC will literally fall over when it spins up.
I had a V8 Rover P6 with soggy suspension. It used to rock side to side when you revved it.
Re: Who the hell...
Interesting that you believe in hell. Just saying.
Re: Many years ago...
I was there and heard the same story though never experienced it. Also jobs were submitted by undergrads on wads of punched cards (two elastic bands were the equivalent of raid5 and the smart ones drew a diagonal line in felt tip on the edge of the stack for fast recovery). Anyway the story was that you could stick several copies of the offending instruction in your stack and each one would cause a crash. Apparently there was no way to remove cards from the machine once they had got that far in.
I have been worried about what happens if the clever machines decide to declare war on humanity and this seems a great way to make sure the machines are forever busy fighting themselves in an endless and growing internal fight. It's worked well for people too - most psychopaths are now busy being patent lawyers although there are a few that are still roaming around as CEOs that need to be rounded up.
Obviously a very advanced being, most humans are still stuck with typing out non-functioning kernel releases full of buffer overflow and use-after-free exploits

You could make a fortune selling rides on that time machine of yours.
So by reckoning if you use all the cores it's £7,439.04 per hour. It will have paid for itself in 134 hours (just over a week). Doesn't sound like a bargain.
Not the vid, the chairs. Do they work when running on coffee splattered floors?

He'll be so dehydrated and sleep deprived it is a good thing he only concentrates on sales and operations, imaging the damage if he was in charge of product design.
Re: OK time for some logic-based thinking...
Traffic deaths are decreasing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reported_Road_Casualties_Great_Britain#/media/File:Killed_on_British_Roads.png and that's with traffic and population increasing. Must be all those speed cameras :-) or could it be Kevlar brake pads, radial tyres, jelly-mold car fronts and better road design?
Interesting how the value of the patent varied so much, just goes to show that value is speculative until the item is sold (or scrapped for zero as this was). There must have been some Dr Evil moments in the board room as they came up with this.
It's called "Ofcom Mobile Research"

All of them convinced they will never have to debug their code because they write it "correctly".

Re: So, to sum up...
Wasps taught humans how to make cheap paper, they get a free ride forever for that.
This is for contractors to public sector emplyees
so basically any tax paid by the contractor is a refund on what the taxpayer pays them. It really doesn't matter how you figure out the intermediate numbers the only thing is the take home pay of the contractor comes from the taxpayer. If this forces the contractors to raise rates to maintain their take home pay then the whole thing is for nothing.
Re: Why only IT?
only tax stupid people? Yes, there are a lot of them and they don't fight back.
Re: Bar none
No need to ban white trucks just ban matching sides and tyres. The lorry in question has big black tyres, no sure how the car sensors missed them. Pretty sure the victim missed them because he wasn't looking.
Re: Another negative for IoT
No doubt there is a processor of some sorts in there. It's program hasn't been designed well. personally I'd have it keep the schedule locally but allow remote updates and a time sync service in case the power goes off. Oh and a motion activated so the internets can see which of the neighbours cats is in your kitchen.
