But why are you evaluating the fitness for purpose based on the far end of the usage curve? Thats the ending point not the starting point. If you get to a solution that works reasonably in summer but only partially well in winter - providing the econimics stack up its still a win.
oh really? A can of "fat" coke contains 139 calories ~ 7% of the lower female GA daily calorie allowance. Thats not counting those people who drink diet coke.
Whilst Im sure there are a few gluttons that guzzle many cans a day - I hardly think you can hold it up as a posterchild of bloateryness.
Care to restate your lazy post?
Disclaimer I think the stuff is vile - but felt the need to call out a commentard throwing up a lazy claim.
Now if he/she/it had conducted a rant about palm syrup they might have been on firmer ground.
If they are genuinely still open for consultation the we start up a petition on the govt moan portal whatever it's called and lobby all our mates to sign up to it. Get the Reg to add it as a note to this story and it should for the ICO a fright.
I would have thought so too. I suspect it's that the figure cover both the corporate and consumer market hence apples mostly consumer sales are dwarfed by Windows corporate sales. Would be interesting to see pure consumer market numbers.
I think you've missed the point somewhat - since twatbook is so new there are no social cautions about using it - hence people have dived into it willy nilly. As social media matures as a concept so will our treatment of it. I wouldn't be surprised to see managing your online identity taught alongside sex ed and home ec in schools some day.
It's not about a binary choice between using social media and not doing so - it's about giving everyone - kids included - enough information to make a conscious and informed choice over if and how they use it.
Indeed - ban these sick filthy programmers - sounds suspiciously like paedogrammers to me.
Now I have the choice of David Cameron or Eric Schmidt knowing my grot perusal habits.
Scilla and Charybdis.
I bet that so called analyst feels pretty dumb today (Mon) as Apples China Mobile deal is now all over the press.
Lets hope the morons gets his ass fired. Not that Im an apple fanboi just hate stoopid analysts.
Doubt it - don't forget this is the company who had all their seeds and algorithms stolen for their RAS tokens and still managed to bullshit their customers and keep 90% of them.
I think thats a bit unfair. He obviously approached Nesta in good faith and only realised it was Arts focused when it was too late.....
Though I suspect its more cockup than conspiracy on this one.
Upvoted for a classic Friday afternoon post on a blustery monday morning.
In fact for less than the £99 you can probably get a waterproof case for your phone and take it swimming.
Anyone whose reading the register and who hasn't been through their own fault finding exercise beforehand shouldn't be on here.
I make no apologies for being more methodical than the average hell desk script.
Just about when I got unwillingly switched to Sky afaik.
Shows ok on speed tests but the minute you put any files of any decent size to upload it dies on its arse.
Rang the hell desk yesterday but got caught out telling porkies to hurry them through their fault finding list ;)
"Do you have only 1 pc connected on a wired cable"
"Me...yes yes" Looking at my ipad and wireless printer. (I had tested earlier with wifi on the router disabled)
"Him - just logging onto your router"
$100's millions of dollars profit? Care to post some proof of that?
No? Thought not.
Get over yourself.
4 years ago was way to late if you take that point of view. Do you think these are all recent developments? Marconi was probably tapped on his second long distance radio transmission. Spooks will be spooks and will have been adding capability incrementally since Marconi's time.
The key issue isnt one of legislation per se - but one of Spooks failing to comply with existing legislation or twisting it for their own purposes.
The piracy party has a massive image problem in that anything meaningful it has to say on digital rights is drowned out and invalidated by its blatantly freetardisd main agenda.
Im reminded of the British army approved method of using your 3 allotted squares whilst on maneouvers.
Fold 1 square into quarters, tear off inner point, open square, place finger through resulting hole, wipe, use torn corner to clean finger nail......
Downvoter hang your head in shame.
When the State Department realises it will allow people to bypass the the western worlds own censorship regimes.
No doubt with an "Paedo/Terrorist/Criminal" excuse.
agreed 505 are at fault here for deliberately releasing a crap game in a cynical attempt to recoup some of their costs. Either they didnt have testing cycles and a QA process or they did and ignored the results.
I think you mean Frontier : Elite 2? Or which version of Elite are you refering to? afaik there was only 1 bug in Elite on the Beeb which mean the last Thargon hunting mission wouldnt end if you took them out with a smart bomb.
/<Elite and proud of it>
Technically the money could have been used for a multitude of purposes. I suspect you meant that it would have been better used within the company rather than distributed to shareholders.
Did you see the error bars on part of that article? 4.9 +/- 2.6 so an error margin of around 50% then.
That gives me great confidence in this research.
I really dont get wireless light bulbs - they have no need to be. Infact if you wanted a light bulb that could turn itself on and off when reacting to your prescense all it needs is a IR sensor and a light sensor. Both of which have been around for donkeys years. The fact that no-one has made a killing selling them already suggests the market doesnt exist......
BT, Voda, etc - please tell me which law forces you to comply with a request to apply a wholesale tap to a piece of fibre?
Failing that show me the court order.
Failing that release the emails showing what the quid pro quo / threats were.
I just knew Googling Juergen Teller on Google images was a bad idea - but I did it anyway.
The IT police are coming for me......
When just putting Kingston Telecoms or KCom would have done?
And did the fairies come along and partition the new drive and install Win 8 onto it for you? No? Perhaps you shouldnt make pointless comparisions then.
Last time I checked apple controlled neither the price of RAM or the prices of SSD's. So your point was exactly???
Hang your head in shame german security services. Maybe shortstuff wanted a date?
In fairness some thought seems to have been given to these laws - well more than in the UK at any rate. The fact that in general (ignoring this case for a sec) a lot of this is treated as juvenile "crime" at least offers a way out without the horrors of permanent attachment to a sex offenders register - suggests that there was a modicome of sanity and common sense present when they were written.
Not to say its perfect, and of course in this case could be abused to get the Jocks off, but at least in general someone had the bravery to say - lets not permanently criminalise kids for sexual exploration.
No offense but my predjudices around a Phd would suggest you are far too academically inclined to deal with the insane vagaries of UK.plc. I'd respect you but I wouldnt employ you.
Now if you were in Germany you would be laughing - most of my colleagues over there are Phd's.
Double standards - probably - but unfortunately true.
Luckily the chances of my doing any interviews in my current job are slim to none, and in the past its been 90% offshore workers.
You must have a very narrow definition of programmer. Even if there is little product development in the UK (and I think there is some). Nearly all the Pre-Sale's consultants at Oracle would fall under programmer/developer in my definitions.
Good point but you need to be careful with that list. Many of those are small "Emea HQ's" for tax purposes.
For instance afaik the Oracle site in Ireland is smaller that the one in Reading Berks. A quick glance suggests many of them also have UK offices. Oracle, Microsoft, Amazon are all big employers in the Thames Valley, as are Intel are in Swindon and Winnersh. Symantec at Oxford.
And those are just the ones I have driven past.
And too be fair - by the end of the classic series it was crap - johnathan Nathan turner has to take a lot of the blame.
I spat cake - have an upvote!
Downvoted for not checking your facts - he broke with them years ago.
Plus on his worst day he's a better writer than Hubbard ever was.
The true meaning of the hippy speech slid right off you didnt it? Just like the Hippies in Greenpeace - I wear my commentard label like a badge of honour. Infact I'd happily swap my silver badge for a "Commentard of the 2nd rank" banner.
Has anyone else read Accerando by Charles Stross? A big part is around auto generated corporations and the fun that can be had with them.
Huh? Thats a very tenous connection. I would say the only reason the climategate hackers should come forward is if it can be shown that they edited or selectively released the docs. Of course to prove that - there would have to be full disclosure from UEA Cru.
If the hackers motives were nothing more than setting data free they have nothing to come forward for. If they were more malign I would wholeheartedly support their detection and prosecution.
But since its the climate researchers work that is being used as a stick to beat the world population and to drive unprecendented levels of change - it should be clear, open and examinable from every angle - especially if the IPCC reports can be shown to be "sexed up" post the initial scientists submissions.
If we are to have any faith in the process we must understand it warts and all. I'm sure there will be jackpots in there for the deniers and embarrassments for the warmists a plenty - this should mean very little in the long run - as long as the process is shown to be honest.
It made more sense to keep the image there - maybe with a note as to what people are looking at and the phone number of the local plod.
Who knows - the next person looking on GE may actually have been in the area at the time and have their memory jogged.
Care to quote a source for this?
"More folks sit on their asses and take government tax money than work in this country"
Also are you Matt Bryants Red Neck Cousin-brother-dad?
Is that true? Werent some spy sats nuclear powered? Or are we talking about the difference between a Reactor and Radio-Isotope source?
And a golden goodbye.
He ends up as CEO of.
I suspect the only thing worse than finding out you are fired - is wandering into work and finding out you have been bought by Crapita. Some of the stories you hear from reputable sources about them would make your hair curl.
And since when has the average teenager been able to afford apple products anyway?
Apple may have been an aspirational choice for them - but very often they end up with BB or low-mid android.
A recliner? I bet you call your man cave a rumpus room or similar. Real men shiver in their sheds with only the faint warmth of a green house heater.
