Re: Only the imminent OnePlus flagship is likely to give it any competition?
The only problem with the Oneplus5 is the leaked price is $650 (£500), and that's probably going to need tax added on top. I really hope this turns out to be wrong.

Traffic Management Act 2004 (c. 18)
Part 6 — Civil enforcement of traffic contraventions
86 Prohibition of parking at dropped footways etc.
(1) In a special enforcement area a vehicle must not be parked on the carriageway adjacent to a footway, cycle track or verge where—
(a) the footway, cycle track or verge has been lowered to meet the level of the carriageway for the purpose of—
(i) assisting pedestrians crossing the carriageway,
(ii) assisting cyclists entering or leaving the carriageway, or
(iii) assisting vehicles entering or leaving the carriageway across the footway, cycle track or verge; or
(b) the carriageway has, for a purpose within paragraph (a)(i) to (iii), been raised to meet the level of the footway, cycle track or verge.
This is subject to the following exceptions.
(2) The first exception is where the vehicle is parked wholly within a designated
parking place or any other part of the carriageway where parking is specifically
A “designated parking place” means a parking place designated by order under section 6, 9, 32(1)(b) or 45 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (c. 27).
(3) The second exception is where the vehicle is parked outside residential premises by or with the consent (but not consent given for reward) of the occupier of the premises.
This exception does not apply in the case of a shared driveway.
(There are a bunch of other exceptions that all relate to emergency services or deliveries.)
Technically you are totally wrong. The law relating to blocking of a dropped kerb makes a point of stating that the homeowner may park there, or anyone with permission of the homeowner (but not for reward).
Of course, this is dependent on there being no other rules being broken like blocking the carriageway or yellow lines.
Technically if you can show the DVLA that you have a justifiable reason for requesting an owner search from a reg number you should be able to get it. They may require you to start the County Court proceedings first against 'The owner of XXXX vehicle' but it should be possible.
I thought MPs were just exempt from the act so their data wouldn't be stored.
What we need is a small program that visits random websites when your screensaver is running, similar to the old one that used to help with SETI.
If this database can be filled with so much crap data and junk it will be totally useless to anyone trying to access your data.
Yes, but it stops the locals being able to access it which is what I thought the goal was.
Would it not just be simpler to add a USB port or adaptor lead that would allow you to write the images onto a hardware encrypted USB stick? Tech that already exists.
Alternatively, if the encryption is actually done by the PCs CPU on the sticks, could a device not be produced that uses a lower power CPU like a Pi with a card reader/USB connector on one end, and a USB slot on the other end to slurp the data from the camera/card, encrypt it, and write it to a USB stick. Considering that these camera users already have access to power it should only need fairly limited battery life built in and be fairly portable. It would also mean that you don't need to replace all your existing cameras with new ones and the device would be able to encrypt any data rather than just pictures.
If you wanted to be even more secure you could have the decryption key stored on a third microSD and send that out via a different source or destroy it. A copy of this key could already be stored back at home so the data is impossible for the camera user to access once you have copied it and destroyed the key. Carry multiple preset key cards for each time you encrypt and the device could be designed to destroy the data on the key card once used once.
Another problem with the SuperHub 3 is that port forwarding doesn't work, I had to downgrade back to a hub2.
It should shut up that damn Katie Hopkins woman for a while, but I doubt they'd try to prosecute here.
Generally though, bloody stupid idea!
Edit : Just looked at the CPS Guidance "Communications which are grossly offensive, indecent, obscene or false will usually fall to be considered either under section 1 of the Malicious Communications Act 1988 or under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003." - Doesn't that pretty much describe the whole Brexit Campaign, or anything produced by the Daily Mail.
There is no way this is going to work.
+1 for another person waiting on a new tablet that is running stock Android so that it'll be updated (hopefully better than the v5 update on the Nexus7 though.
Well the way things are going, by the time this actually comes in we'll have left the EU and will instead continue to be screwed by the roaming charges.
"Skorobogatov says his set up could help Apple and others find hardware security problems and reliability issues, citing his discovery that some NAND chips from broken iPhone 5c main boards had specific blocks that had failed due to excessive rewriting."
What are the chances Apple already knew of this built in in fault and have not fixed it so that the phones have a maximum life span before you need to buy a new one?
It is going to be so funny when they have to drop these new planes because they don't work and then we end up with two carriers and nothing capable of flying off them.
Barclays give you a little keypad like a small calc that you can plug your card into.
When you login online you need to enter the last four digits of the card.
Put the card into the keypad, and enter you pin.
That then gives you an eight digit code to type on the webpage.
It does the same whenever you want to add new payments or standing orders etc.
Seems about as secure as you can get it so far.
Or the other problem I saw at a business is that they buggered it up once and now cannot work out what they did wrong.
1. Four figure code 1234.
2. In error somone press random number before typing in code 8, then type 1234.
3. System beeps after the 3 to say error but human continues to finish whole code and presses 4.
4. Human starts to type in code, but system already has the number 4 in its memory, RETURN TO 3.
Stop typing in code after the error beep, then start from scratch.
Or Leave system alone for 10 minutes so that it'll reset to zero and then start again.
"While airliner cockpit windows and engines are routinely tested for resistance to bird strikes, drones are a much tougher proposition – especially at typical airliner holding speeds of 300 knots or more."
Just out of interest, has anyone actually ran a test with a drone yet?
Or home made.
Not sure you can call it a fast jet carrier if the aircraft don't yet exist and every other fast jet cannot land and takeoff do to no catapults etc.
Still a bloody stupid idea ...
"If a patient says that they are have given up hope and are going to hang themselves and the doctor feels it is credible then the police will be informed."
Would they? I'm not sure they have the legal right (or requirement) to interfere unless they feel the patient should be sectioned under the Mental Health Act, and I think you can be suicidal and still technically considered sane.
"Admittedly not sure if they consented could be a grey area, but then again could be open to misinterpreation as he claims."
This may have been a 'grey area' right up until the point he was charged with another offence and this whole case went public. You can pretty much guarantee that if one of the prior 'grey area' partners had came forward to the police with a complaint the police would have tried to add that to the charge sheet too.
The fact that this has had so much publicity in the press etc means that you have to assume that these 'grey areas' are less grey now and were in fact consensual.
I would love AMD to pull a great chip out from somewhere that would really give Intel a run for it's money but they just seem to have given up, at least for games/desktop. This new chip with the multiple cores might make a great server chip or some other job.
Perhaps if game makers actually started using multiple cores for their games then we might have some real competition again, and with chips appearing to be reaching their limits of speed they might start doing it.
Personally I think AMD lost their way when they merged with ATI.
"We estimate that performance boost slots Zen somewhere between Intel's Broadwell and the Skylake microarchitecture in terms of single-threaded IPC."
They are going to bring out a chip that for most desktop users is slightly less good than Intels current offering, just give up now it'll be less painful to watch.
Considering that there appears to be a lot of people who, like me, are still happily running an old i5/i7 (2500/2600 vintage) Intel CPU because they cannot justify buying a new PC for marginal gains of the new Skylake kit, do they really think these people are going to be willing to switch to an AMD system that is 'less good' than the one they cannot be bothered with upgrading to right now?
AMD/ATI, whatever you want to call yourselves, you need to produce something that is actually better than Intel/Nvidia not nearly as good but £50 cheaper, because if that extra £50 means people will stay with good enough kit for longer they will probably just buy th better kit.
Just get a dogtag made up and wear it around your neck, any first responder with very little training will look for that. It will also go to the hospital with you when some idiot decides to remove your helmet.
However from discussions with doctors the blood type check is very quick and besides an emergency they will pump you with universal donor blood so it doesn't matter anyways.
They never did make a replacement for the Nexus 7 which for the cost was a great tablet at the time, only spoilt by the Android 5 update.
Exactly the same situation here, i5-2500k since they were first released, have upgraded to SSD and faster graphics over the years but the CPU and memory. I looked at the new i5 and i7 chips but thought what's the point.
Give people a reason to spend money and they might even do it.
Not sure how effective this would be against a large arti shell, probably not at all.
Why not just add a joke in the first 5 minutes and call it a parody?
It seems to work with the porn industry!
So now Adobe need to rework their current software so that it will not need Quicktime. But also anyone still running version 6 of their software, pre subscription model, won't get an update so will be at risk.
A nice way to pile the pressure on people who until now have been unwilling to pay for a subscription.
The problem would be how would you switch them on? You couldn't use the switch on the wall because you wouldn't be opening/closing a circuit because it's open at the main source. The best you could do is have the lights stay on after power is cut, but then they would also stay on after you switched them off as they would see the switch as a power cut. Otherwise you would need a separate switching mechanism that didn't rely on the wall switch and the mains, wifi perhaps?
A better solution is to just buy a bunch of cheap LED torches from Ebay and leave them in various places around the house in case of a power cut. You can get aluminium AA Cree LED torches very cheap now.
Yes, why do laptops have such crap display resolutions when a basic smartphone comes with a 1080P screen?
Perhaps if they want us to buy newer PCs then they should release new CPUs that are actually worth buying. A lot of the games available now are still playable on 5 year old CPUs, they need newer GPUs but so do the newer PCs so why bother upgrading.
Still running an i5-2500k at home and it does everything I need. Since this came out Intel have gone from 32nm to 14nm but the actual speed has gone up 200mhz, no increase in cores etc either.
Unless the PC goes BANG I can stay with what I have and be happy.
I would love to take part in these mobs if they were local. I'd even be happy to turn up later if I was at work and film for 20 minutes after everyone had gone home just to make a point.
How about illegal detention?
The only argument they could use to detain him would be a citizens arrest, but you can only do this if you know an offence was taking place which the police have confirmed has not happened.
The other one I would go for is 'calling the police and running away/wasting police time', there is no way the copper should have let them just walk away without pointing out to them that they were potentially breaking the law with their actions.
Perhaps including Spyhunter as a special 'one time challenger' in the next AV-test might show how crap it is and end the case?
I thought the FBI had already confirmed that they just wanted the data, the phone could stay with Apple for them to destroy or do whatever they wanted rather than any chance it being reversed engineered to do the same on other phones.
I wonder how big a fine Apple are willing to accept in order to not open the phone up, a million per week/day until the conform?
What are the chances that this will go quiet eventually, then Apple will quietly do what is asked behind closed doors (under threat of being taxed to oblivion). Then the FBI will put out a story that he coughed up the PIN or they found a piece of paper in the bottom of a box in his belongings and tried it.
Whilst I see the sense behind this idea, I am very concerned that based on Googles past updating experience this is going to make a lot of devices unusable.
The Nexus 7 is a good example of this, it worked fine up to Android 4.4.4 but when Android 5 was added to it the tablets became pretty much useless as they were so slow.
As the police is a public organisation and subject to FOI requests, along with the fact that you can FOI copies of video footage taken of you by the police.
Can a member of the public make an FOI request for the ANPR data held on their vehicle? I could understand the need to prove that you own the vehicle etc.
I just upgraded my WinXP Toshiba NB100 to Windows 10 Pro and it works fairly well.
Bought the Win10 licence online from Kinguin for about £13.
But the editor doesn't give the facility of redacting text, it lets you highlight. It even calls the tool a highlighting tool, which expressly implies that the text will still be there after you draw over it.
Could Acrobat be better? Yes but this is an error of the user not the software.
It looks like the latest versions of Acrobat do also have a tool for doing the job properly.
How can a company that appears to pay little or no tax in the countries it operates in be losing 0.5 billion a year?
Unless this is all one big con and the profits are being skimmed off by another company that sells 'services' to Uber.
Who cares ... ?
Anyone on the ground that may be under one of these things when it goes wrong and the crew do not have the skill to compensate for problems.
Agree ... you would have thought that this would be an obvious bit of additional information to include with the article.
I think the law only says that a unit must be supplied from the factory with sealed plugs, there are no rules stopping you from cutting them off and rewiring them. Especially useful when you don't want to drill 50mm holes in your furniture to get to a socket.
I would be happy to have a physical copy of my crypto key that is held by a solicitor in a sealed box that could only be opened with the authority of a court order. At least then you should know when it has been compromised rather than the Authorities being able to go on fishing trips electronically.
You have a lot of faith in the politicians to actually know what they are doing when writing the Bill, which I suppose might be true for a change.
But considering that there is very little detail on the website about what is going to be required when registering,instead there is just a note saying that the information is coming in December, to me implies that they don't yet know the detail. I suspect that they are waiting to hear what comes out of the FAA on 20 Nov.
A flight controller with GPS is not much heavier than one without.
So if I build a Quadcopter that weighs less than 1KG I'm fine, I then take out the KK flight controller and place it into a new build Hexcopter that weighs a little more than 1KG.
I register the drone now and get a number.
If I now replace the KK board with a highend one supporting GPS and other bells and whistles, is that the same drone or should it be registered again?
Registering a home built drone isn't like registering a car, it's more like saying any Meccano model over 300mm tall or wide must be registered. Bits break off and/or are replaced regularly as people fiddle with them. Might have been better to try registering the owners instead. Otherwise I can see the system getting overwhelmed with people registering each modification in order to stay legal, especially with the police clamping down at the start.
