The NHS is supporting some repurposing studies.
I love hysterical posts like ST's. . They always follow the same pattern of taking an extreme example of something and conflating it with the whole of something.
Whilst that pattern has worked successfully for many extreme politicians and the Daily mail I'm not sure it's one I'd choose if I wanted to act all holier than thou.
Have a bag of fail good sir.
Isn't the only question worth asking whether they work well in the real world?
Yes but blinding someone is against the Geneva convention whilst merely killing them via crash or exploding vehicle or a plain old bullet isn't for some reason.
And apparently you can do anything you want if they are enemy combatants.
Maybe he prefers pdf bloatware to getting borged?
Don't forget a number of personal data leaks that have been reported. And the fact that Parallels want to scalp me if I upgrade the OS.
What OS X builds > than Yosemite exist? Not supporting Mavericks is pretty shite IMO.
I think your safer assuming a commentard was being commentardish and carrying on regardless.
inquiring minds want to know
In fairness to Apple though (if I must) - if they did it they would have had the guts to launch it as a singular flagship product rather than just one turd among the many that they are throwing against the wall to see which sticks.
(Trolling the fandroids and making a valid point - can today get any better?)
Due to the gutless cowardice of the rest of the Western world I think he'll die in Russia. The most criminal part of the whole affair is the fact he'll probably die early and alone.
I just hope some future generations truly recognises him for what he's done.
I wouldn't be convinced by anything that starts with the premise that the US and Europe are similar.
When someone does a "Clarkson" on Gordon11 up there - please don't get me by mistake.
Wasn't this where Rimini claimed that they could use their Customers Oracle licenses instead of their own?
Serves them right afaik. Never try to use a companies own license against them. Especially when the have a metric f?cktun of lawyers on standby.
Oracle have never subscribed to the big fleas have little fleas view of the world.
So its your users fault? Great customer attitude there Albert.
Indeed - that should be the trigger phrase that activates the distress mode - like OK GOOGLE.
"Leave me alone or I'll call the ROZZERS" <autodial 999> it wont actually prevent you getting a good shoeing but at least it will be caught on tape.
From a certain perspective it is their money, they are certainly the custodians of the particular symbol that acts as a proxy for money today. Whilst money is the rewards of our production, without a centrally supported, underwritten currency you end up with barter or bitcoin, neither of which have much to recommend them atm.
They done necessarilty own the "value" it represents, but they certainly have a role to play in its dissemination and up take.
Gemalto also make those smart cards you can use to log on to a pc too.......
With the Ruble down the toilet?
Putting aside for a moment the fact that Big Data is just the buzz word / consulting revenue earner du jour, I do wonder how "predictive coding" (new one on me) is distinct from the big basket of analytic and data science techniques that have always hidden under the auspices of those horrid words "Big Data".
Since traders in particular are monitored up the wazoo already I can almost guarantee that every major bank has been mining that data for a good few years now. Whether its any better than state surveillance at spotting bad behaviour is another question entirely. :)
Its also worth noting that some of quantitative techniques that underlie the Big Data hypegasm have been being used on Market, Trading and Risk data and decisions for at least a decade - with decidedly mixed results.
Charlie uses scrivener to a point afaik.
If I can misquote Churchill :
“It has been said that capitalism is the worst form of democracy except all the others that have been tried.”
Proper hollandaise isn't that tricky, check out Delia's easy hollandaise and foaming hollandaise recipes. It helps if you have one of those hand blenders with a whisk adapter, and just add the butter a dribble at a time. If it starts to split you can usually recover it with a blitz from the whisk unless you are completely ham fisted. Don't forget a splash of white wine vinegar and a couple of pepper corns for the poaching water.
Eggs benedict is my get out of jail free card with the missus.
Copy paste ain't entirely flawless - more so if formatting is involved too. Can you imagine what a pain in the arse it will be if even 5% needs tweaking.
"In the UK, these keys are in theory not much use anyway. That's because the exact same warrant would be required to use these keys within the UK as would be needed to order the carrier to do cell interception "
But isn't the point that if they have the encryption keys - they potentially dont need to apply for a warrant in the UK. Is there any oversight thats checking that haven't abused these keys on British nationals, or are we just meant to take their word for it? I take your point they may be fractionally more circumscribed than the NSA, but their previous form leaves me very doubtful.
Also presumably they dont have controls over where the sim cards end up so have to do some sort of polling/monitoring of Networks to determine who has what key - i.e. yet more indiscriminate data collection.
And you decided not to use the "Send Corrections Link" why?
Or does he just spend time pontificating?
I want my TOE dagnabit!
Google: only we should be allowed to remote search servers. robots.txt we've heard of it.
Eh? What you see as bias I see as fulfilling it's mandate to mock anything IT related. Looked at the masthead AC?
That they priced HANA out of the market - it's a compelling product but usually priced eye wateringly even by oracles standards. SAP may have captive market in ERP (gawd knows why) who pay through the nose but they have never really tried to outcompete MD and Oracle in the database space. I Think they aspired to be another Teradata when there's only room for one.
That's somewhat out of context. A meteor Tsunami certainly didn't wipe out the dinosaurs - of the 4 elements it was mostly Earth and Fire i.e. Ash and Debris in the atmosphere.
Grow the fuck up.
You may not agree with their methods but the fact remains without them and people like them the path to a Total surveillance state becomes a little bit easier.
I've signed up even with the small risk that I'll end up on some shit list somewhere.
Try Faerie Tale by Raymond E Feist, well before Urban Fantasy was cool - this was a good spine tingler.
I think they could go it alone with the right team:
Hey presto instant iCar.
I don't think it's particularly self evident - he sounds like chicken little to me.
The proportion of the Internet worth keeping is tiny. The formats involved number in the low thousands the technologies in the same order of magnitude. All that's really needed is some auto tagging so that photos and personal data can be retained and Facebook posts flushed down the digital crapper.
A good point well made. Even if those answers on stock exchange were generic and templates (which they aint) you will still need some creativity to apply it to your current problem even if it's just replace $company name.
And that's before you factor in the fact that you need a continual source of new answers.
AI is coming to our careers but it's over a 15-30 time frame.
Tim might say that given that the Cap on H1B's has been reached continuously for the last few years then it indicates many people are actively choosing being a H1B 'slave' to working elsewhere.
Nice rant btw.
I love how this one always comes up. IBM's very own instance of Godwins law.
The problem with voting for UKIP is that the average politician is too thick to distinguish between a vote for UKIP as a protest against the mainstream parties policies versus a vote endorsing UKIP's policies.
Net result -> Tories lurch right to UKIP lite. Labour lurch even more authoritarian/nanny statist, whilst pretending to be lefty.
I'm probably going to vote LibDem - on the off chance they get the balance of power - generally they will act as a moderating influence on the big 2, but not carry enough weight to implement their more loony policies. Filter out the policies that appear to their core voters and they are actually surprisingly sane. For political values of sane obviously.....
No-one in their right mind would work for crapita. I have a friend who does - he's generally rightwards of genesis khan and even he deplores their behaviour.
at the very least its set it back about 5 years
Down voted for facing to realise boffin is one of those rare words that's both hilarious and a sign of respect in spite of seeing it one million times.
Also down voted for searching and failing to notice it's polar opposite - Trick Cyclist.
That won't stop the PHB's doing something dumb for show.
This was running on TPF?
The Os and the age is right.
Would explain why there were different limits in different parts of the system not easily visible to each other.
Real programmers write OS390 assembler in 4k blocks.
and this is just the declassified version! The classified version of the disc is solar powered, self-reading and auto backs up to secure storage on the moon. (the moon landings were real but were a smokescreen to cover the installation of the data centre.)
Beat me to it. Given the average life expectancy of even enterprise IT kit seems to be in the 5-10 year range better make sure some of that 1000 year lifetime is devoted to our post-apocalypse descendants/alien archeologists re-inventing Blu-Ray-XL players.
"Wouldn't grey" = "soylent grey" autocorrected!
Assume for a sec that we stumble through the next century or so without wiping each other out or eating the old as wouldn't grey, there will probably come a time where we have the technology to eliminate most kinds of work but will not have the technology to support a post scarcity Economy. Then unless there is some kind or support of the unemployable lower and middle class the world will go to hell in a hand basket.
