To be fair to BB it's less a descent and more a return, as noted below for a long time on El Reg they were known as Lawsuits In Motion rather than Research In Motion (RIM) for their agressive assertion of some of their patents. Keyboards and some blatantly prior art around pager functionality springs to mind.

I run teams remotely in Pune, Dublin and the US and my company has about a dozen offices in Central London most of my work is by Conf Call and VC. Working from home means I can actually do more and still be home quicker, its win win. Sounds pretty innovative to me.

Re: Fake news? Shurely shome mishtake?
BBC Journalists knowing sweet FA about technology. Colour me shocked. But to be honest quibbling with such an obvious puff piece is a bit of the level of handbags at dawn.
Re: Just a google bash?
The clue is in the name. Donors choose. And it's corollary Beggars can't be Choosers.
How is this different to o any other donation where the item is goods or services not money?.
Agree they are dodgy as fuck but their money - their rules. If you don't like it dont use them. Whether or not the education system is sufficiently funded has no bearing on the issue.
Its funny that culturally people (particularly in the US and UK) are willing to whine about what their state systems are like but as soon as someone suggests a tax rise to pay for it they get voted out of office There are plenty of countries in the world that have a different balance of taxation and state funding (like France and the Nordics) so you pays your taxes and takes your choice.

Re: When R/C hobby models now come with autoland, these folks are simply pathetic.
Whats that got to do with it? They are simply variables that should plug into the same auto landing module.
The characteristics of landing will be different but only in the details. The same basic flight parameters have to achieved.
Agreed - we need them to do the research before we can build the space wall to keep the Martians out.
Re: Criminal Enterprise
Out of curiosity - what makes you think that the Republicans in general and Trump in particular will be any better?
Or is that just a high faluting way of saying you fancied a change?
Re: Interesting idea..
@stuart. Thats the X1 range. I have one at work, feels odd, its an LCD based on that switches between 3 or 4 different sets of buttons. Function keys, display volume keys and some other stuff.

Re: Liberty Global are gougers
Agree - I had a note saying that I was getting a free 200Mb speed upgrade, 9 months before it happened. During that 9 months I then got 2 price rises before the "free" speed came on line.
Im only still with them as the BT line has rotted away and needs re-running.
Re: Always a one-sided story
You've completely missed the point. The plaintiffs are alleging that statistically speaking women are invariably ranked downwards in the their performance reviews compared to men. If its true that can only be the product of bias either conscious or unconscious. "sides of the story" dont come into it in this case as its potentially about all females not the expecations of one or two.
Of course that doesnt rule out demographics and other measures impacting the underlying populations but its certainly not worth dismissing it out of hand.

Technically they aren't nuclear reactors, but nuclear batteries or radioisotope generators. They use the heat generated from nuclear decay rather than nuclear fission.

As much as it galls me to call for the same thing as Ted Cruz another year ensuring ICANN can act a bit more honestly isn't a bad thing.

Re: Cue loads of people saying...
Really care to estimate how many pieces of a drone actually have the size durability, and density of a set of keys? Answer none.
Can we stop the daily fail hysteria now - I thoughtt El Reg was read by critics also thinking engineer scientists and programmers.
Most drones are likely to have the same impact as a bird strike - ie minor inconvenience to passengers and major inconvenience to the poor engineers who have to replace the engine.
If you wimps really want to scare yourselves try googling lightening strike damage or drunken pilots.
Re: Sorry, but . . .
Any drone capable of reaching those heights is either a remote controlled plane or has a fail safe RTB mode when it loses signal.
Re: Michael Brown
You're missing the point slightly. The problem with the USian rozzers started the minute it became acceptable to shoot someone running away from a possible crime. The rest of it was a slippery slope.
Re: I interviewed there last year. . .
I'm interested in knowing how you assumed they were all Hindu's? did you ask them all their religion? Or was this a veiled reference to the colour of their skin?
Quote from wiki "Traditionally, Hindu men wear a dhoti kurta and women wear a sari. The clothing of Hindu people varies depending on the time of year and the area in which they live."
So how exactly did you tell?
Most of the US's allies have been complicit in rendition including the UK so your point is?
Re: ICANN is an example
Regardless of the validity of the rest of your points maybe you should actually check the makeup of the ICANN board before indulging in your casual racism and/or ignorance.
The vast majority are resolutely first world. Even the Egyptian guy is a British citizen. I can't think of any country that holds the moral high ground on corruption.

If the TLA's wanted to shut TOR down then stopping its US Govt funding would be far simpler.

I rather suspect that this is HMRC trying to reduce the burden auditing of millions of small companies to a few hundred thousand big ones.
Its worth noting that the Empire review is virtually the opposite of this one (4 stars). The main similar criticisms being the Baddie and his motivations.
Crawl back under your rock scumbag.
There's a flaw with this article
It assumes we knew and cared what this fad was in the first place. Having read the article I'm not sure I'm any clearer on that point.
Probably if you are going to rant about something better make clear what you are ranting about otherwise its just noise.
Fixed that for ya
Just rebrand it
data.care Sellafield - sorted.
Her wikipedia entry suggests Catalyst has form for medical media scare stories (cf Statins episode). Unfortunately the doctorate appears valid.
Is this the Aussie equivalent of BBC Horizon (preferably the 1990's vintage) or a science-y version of C4's Cutting Edge (UK Investigatory news program full of graduates from Daily Mail school of reporting e.g. LIFE KILLS YOU, CANCER IS GONNA GET YOU, PEEDO's ATE MY BABY)

It would if there is no trail to them. Post a copy to a mate every month.
Firstly I have no idea what Mainframes "cant do real time" even means. They were the only way of doing real time at scale for years.
Secondly DevOps and Agile are methodologies and philosphies - yes there are some great toolsets as enablers but you could knock together a continuous integration framework for JCL if you really wanted.
And lets not get into how long Linux has been deployable on a mainframe.
Someone let the PHB talk to the press with out a minder. The whole article was semi-intelligible bullshit bingo.
Re: Pay Per byte
You've missed the point that I addressed specifically in my comment. Consumers don't have the technical nouse, time or inclination to identify bandwidth heavy sites and neither the sites themselves or the ISP's have any incentives to help them do so. Or are you somehow suggesting that consumers will all run out and install bandwidth monitoring apps and actually bother to use them. If you believe that then I have some AV to give away free that still wouldn't get installed by a big chunk of consumers even if their bank details depended on it.
Re: Pay Per byte
Fail. When the consumer is the one who pays by byte how on earth does it promote good code use on sites? There is no financial incentive for the site to change and bills dont have enough resolution to identify individual sites for the consumer.
I for one

This is interesting
No evidence to suggest whether its TeamViewer or Talk Talk whether the ultimate fault lies. (Or possibly both).
Its entirely possible that the spike is just due to the number of Talk Talk consumers who have needed remote support, making them a stastically significant part of the TeamViewer attack.
Its also possible its due to an existing or new leakage from Talk Talk or a union with thier dataset and what ever is the source of the TeamViewer dataset.
Glad I un-installed TeamViewer a few months back due to its persistent nagging behaviour.
Re: I've used the BA boarding pass app
Actually a worse idea (and I think this is on BA) is allowing Mobile Safari to refresh the QR code on their Mobile site BEFORE checking for internet connectivity.
This happened to me at LHR from memory. Security control was in a no-reception zone.
TBF I think this is Apples stupid assumption rather than BA's.
I'm more concerned
By the fact that RSA have never admitted the full extent of the breach and just how compromised their tokens were during that period.
They SHOULD have gone bust for the shameful way they handled it where protecting their company was more important than their customers,
Good job no one tried to kill the VP
That would be going off Topic
Re: Hmmm ... of course if the advertisers *pay* for the data usage ...
Probably not because net neutrality is a bit of a non-issue on the right pondian side. far less huffing and puffing goes on about it.
Don't forget that the US operators effectively brought it on themselves with all the dodgy dealings they got up to like super cookies and bill stuffing. Plus that fact that there is less historic cross fertilisation between Cable TV operators and network operators over here. i.e. by and large the UK network operators don't think about gouging their customers in quite the same way.
Just look at the comparative prices for connections. (yea yea I know the US is bigger and they alledgedly gouge the cities to serve the country folks. Not.).
