Re: RIPA is obviously flat out unlawful and not a valid contract 'law'!
Why on earth do you think a criminal investigation has anything to do contract law? you gibbering commentary.

All hail the bofhstress!
And if it is a clue what about India or Pakistan at a push.
How do you know the model reviewed has the same version you do?
N5 user here with only minor niggles.
Downloaded Bluemail to avoid the Android mail app a few weeks before so no hassles on email for me. I don't use exchange however.
Niggly issue with headphone button not worning on insert until you manually play first.
No battery life issues noted - about the same.
No WiFi issues on 802.11ac
Eh? How is this one in particular the banks fault?
Mostly App related.
Headphone play button doesn't work the first time the headphone is plugged/unplugged. There's a big thread over the Lollipop bug forum about it.
My weather app no longer displays the temperature at the top of the screen.
They still haven't fixed that bizarre decision that prevents a vibrate "ring tone" when the headphone is plugged in. Thus if you happen to have the phone on vibrate when plugging in a headset you may miss incoming calls.
I would guess the main reason is that Income Tax payers don't usually have a fleet of high paid lawyers on standby.....
And there are less punitive international treaties on cross taxation of corporate revenues compared to individuals income. cf the US's crazy income taxation policies where it doesn't matter where you live.
To take something so idiosyncratically British and replace it with an institution full of more politicians or other self serving hacks just seems dead wrong. Checks and Balances with a hint of whimsy are good in my book.
Yes and No. We all know that Amazon are deliberately keeping ebook prices low to disintermediate publishers and thus each their lunch, and probably in the long term eat our consumers lunch as well.
Given that and Amazon seems to currently have the freedom to abuse its monopoly position with almost zero regulatory oversight we shouldn't be surprised to find desperate* people doing desperate things. Whilst 2 wrongs don't make a right (unless you are acting on a global level to destabilise countries **cough** ) it seems wrong that Amazon has the freedom to act with impunity just because its having a short term benefit for consumers.
At the same time I have very limited sympathy for the publishers. Where are my "doubleplay" combined books and ebooks like the Hollywood pigopolists do for "tripleplay" DVD's and BluRays?
Baen used to do a variant of this years ago but has stopped :(
*desperate for corporate measures of desparate (ie stoopid)
Stephen we love you dearly and are in awe of all your achievements but it would be really great if you could STFU about the Rise of the Machines as the lesser minds of the staff and commentards at El Reg have it covered.
Lewis is our John Connor, Lucy Orr our Sarah Connor and Andrew O is that conflicted cyborg with a Windows Mobile OS played by Sam Worthington whose name nobody can remember.
You get on with formulating a working TOE so we can bail out of this planet on spindizzies when the Toasters rebel.
All our Love - the commentards.
Of course that pint needed glassing - it looked at me bird all wrong.
How does that work if I only take my watch off at night?
As long as they haven't been blatantly microwaved, as a change I find them quite satisfying - caving in that crunchy puff pastry and mushing half of it in the pie.
Email apps are a dime a dozen for android - what makes accompli so special?
Indeed how can he be "broke" if he has use of a mansion or a helicopter?
I now will consider myself covered in 'glory'
For what values of 'run'. For example how many enable hardware acceleration?
Isn't called something a Banana Pi when its completely unrelated to the Raspberry Pi dangerously close to "passing off"? Since its some dodgy Chinese outfit I guess we shouldn't be surprised.
Personally I would avoid it just because of that.
Related: Is there such a thing as a plain banana pie? Shouldn't it be Banoffee Pie or Banana Bread? Or possibly Banana wrapped in foil with a flake inside and barbied?
Whomever created that graph needs to go away and consider what "total" means.
I'm tempted the buy s blackberry simply to support a company that actually seems to have turned itself around and whose managenent seem like they ate genuinely trying to innovate.
Makes a nice change.
"The Pre was ahead of the iPhone in some ways."
Kinda missed the point there AC.
PNR data was shared with the merkins 14 years ago when I worked on airline systems. I'm surprised the Canucks have only just tried to dip their snouts in the data trough.
They are effectively saying let's use the tragic death of a soldier to monitor everybody online.
Which is not only disproportionate its fucking scandalous and the people suggesting this should be named and shamed.
Common sense suggests that Apple plans lower sales for its phablet than its more mainstream phone, no doubt the plan to introduce two premium SKU's was analysed to death internally for the last year at least.
"What if I don't have a religion?"
Then both sides take turns burning you. There is no middle ground recognised by opposed fanatics.
Fortunately fanatics are the (bell) ends of the distribution curve.
4 lots of things can actually have a negligible benefit and sometimes actually be outweighed by the costs of managing the additional complexity.
I suspect you already knew that and were just "for instancing"
The alternative side of the negotiation word have been Apple knowing that the Samsung mobile sales tanking is hurting the entire group and that Apple could fill up both some of the slack demand as a result of Sammy mobile needing to scale back production, and are more able to withstand short term supply constraints by limiting demand in various markets.
Whichever way it went I would love to have been a fly on the wall....
AFAIK most of Nokia's patents are for "real" innovative things. Not button clicks.
Spot on on all counts. I too thought Apple had more sense than to produce a stupidly wide phone just goes to show you can never tell.
Another meh from me. Where's the value in the nexus line gone?
It's more a case of the isp's not applying encryption in the first place than stripping existing encryption.
The flag is what's getting stripped but that's not encrypted in the first place.
Whilst I agree with you on O'Leary being O'Leary I disagree with you on Ryan air using the same seat pricing models as their competition. Afaik they use a far simpler time based model.
Source - 5 years or so ago I was on the project that deployed one of these pricing models into the other Irish Airline of note - an identical system that was used by both BA and Virgin.
As with all things IT they didn't develop their own internal models they bought in a software package from a vendor that employed a whole gang of clever mathematicians.
Now maybe its changed in the last 5 years but knowing O'Leary's cheap skateryness I doubt it.
Now your employing Grad comment on the cheap - was an accurate description of how RA started their online booking site, but even that became outsourced to one of the specialists in this kind of thing, one of the more niche GDS players when such terms were still relevant.
Afaik you are also oversimplifying on the API front as well - whilst actual price calculations may be ephemeral - the inventory data their are based on certainly isn't (with the possible exception of RA in this case, as they never used inventory based pricing).
...to quietly get in line with the begging bowl once he gets steamrollered by Apple. Especial if Google weigh in with a default design for Android more in line with Apples than the GSMA.
Classic incumbent complacency. I give the GSMA to get a competing solution into multiple handsets and across multiple Telco's before the manufacturers each their lunch.
History has shown us that the mobile Telco's are pretty poor innovators and tend to lurch from fluke revenue stream to fluke revenue stream, more often than not.
the next year or so should be amusing. Must review my Voda shares.
When its the European parliament that is standing up for our rights over our own elected representatives.
In fact whenever a Dutch or German MEP talks they usually make perfect, proportional sense, far more regularly than the sorry lot of UK MEP's, never mind the European Commission.
No wonder half the tories want out of Europe. it both satisfies their anti European and authoritarian tendencies.
I don't see Voda's network infrastructure investment being up to the job of using 4G as a broadband substitute. Not after 4-5 years of under-investment
Remember when they used to boast (with some justification) about being the most reliable network?
Re timing. I've seen these trains running in early commuting hours on one of the busiest lines into London - 6.30am or so. Given that I don't believe there's much problem with getting them on the network.
They seem to be make good inroads into most of the financial services sector.
There is a stage when a significant minority are unemployed but the prevailing social and economic structures are still directly tied to the output of the remaining cash generating industries.
At some point we need to devise economic models that don't work on financial measures.
Because I believe I understand their motives the best as they appy to me. They want to chop off my head, convert me to extremism or something similar that's contrary to my lifestyle and beliefs.
Snowden I give the benefit of the doubt to - because I approve of his actions and on balance I perceive them to be positive.
The intelligence apparatus I trust the least - because they keep saying "trust us" then abusing that trust.
Quite a balanced statement from an Ex-spy though. Although since she is mouth piecing for MS we should expect she represents their views.
You sure about that? The colour coding was for a cyber gun which were blue in this episode, rather than master death ray red.
So why don't they spend more time pushing this that some of their other lunacy.
I don't know if you are being deliberately obtuse or not but its never touted as shining a laser in your eyes.
Its touted as a corrective medical procedure.
Your description is analogous to describing surgery as having your body cut open by a man with a knife, accurate but wilfully unhelpful for the case in hand.
Mr Ward is an opportunist shill and you are defending him why?
And I hardly think headlines chosen generally on El Reg for their humour value rather than their accuracy are comparable in the same category as some PR flaks.
Indolent by name and indolent by comment perchance?
Where the solution to it being hot has necessitated more than opening the windows (old people still have windows right), and/or cavorting nekkid.
How many 30c plus days did we get this year? Not many I can recall. There were a lot of high-middling 20's warm days which obviously pushes the average up but it wasn't a scorcher of a summer imo.
What an opportunist twat of the highest order.
You friend didn't look too hard. Its all over Amazon.
Apple would probably think (if they cared to) that the fact you haven't taken the plunge previously probably means you weren't likely to this time either. Therefore no lost sale.
Unfortunately for those of us who like that stuff - I suspect Apple will continue down the path of less and less user upgradeability.
I would argue that they are 2 different ways of contributing to the same goal - getting our race off of this planet so we can further continue the species. Only history will be able to judge to what degree each effort contributed.
For instance its possible that the shuttlecock device on SS2 might be re-used in the future on higher orbiting craft - we just don't know.
Indivual members of staff can be done over for all kinds of misconduct already - mainly financial such as insider dealing and money laundering.
The problem with doing it for IT staff would be making sure the responsible person got hit instead of some innocent foot soldier. Would have to be an un-writteb rule that it is applied at executive level eg MD.
