You could say in advance that the poll was non-binding
That way no-one would overreact if the result sounded a bit stupid.

There, fixed it.
We're not all on Cobol yet, you know!
I don't see why not.
Rather than having to hit three keys deliberately, it should have been a single key, in the early days assigned by the manufacturer to any of the Function keys but as software got more sophisticated, remapped randomly on startup so you never know which one you're hitting.
I've got the next best thing on my Chromebook with the power key adjacent to the backspace so I hesitate before erasing any rubbish I write.
All the major supermarkets where I live have such systems and avoiding them would mean going to smaller ones where the volumes are lower and hence prices higher and product turnover lower. While I don't like the loyalty card model, I don't have your moral courage to avoid them while paying more for less fresh groceries.
Surely UK only, specifically England & Wales.
No, the customer is the one with the hole in his chest, the end user is the one who served him with it.
Bypass the middleman?
Ideally making it impossible for a human to definitively say whether the enterprise is compliant or not by invoking every possible exception to and alternative reading of the regulations, then the only thing that could beat is is a better AI auditor.
Soylent Blue is Auditors!
Does "X" know about...
How do I answer that when I have one friend who knows about it in the sense of having written THE book and being on the international standards body for that technology and another who knows about it in the sense of hearing a man talk about it down the pub and parroting what he heard?
surely no-one english needs an english degree?
Britain over the next thirty years will need larger prisons to house the EU sympathisers and ethnic minorities but on the bright side building and staffing prisons don't require staff with degress, just clean racial pedigrees.
a) that's your governments policy
b) any influx of British students enrolling at UVA won't increase, it will come to a complete halt
It's a pain in the arse trying to find which application is using which storage device at the best of times, let alone using a pair of dowsing rods.
If only for the flirtation with Ms Moneypenny
*I'll get my coat, it's the one with the PPK and exploding belt buckle
not a good thing in this case.
Most people will be OK with commodity hardware, I don't see it taking off big. It's nice to have another outlet for Power PC CPU though.
I can't understand why, if the UK government mean to leave the EU, they haven't triggered Article 50 and I can't understand what the EU Commission hasn't invoked article 7 to suspend UK voting rights.
Is their intention to postpone any departure until after the next national election and allow the incoming government to reverse them?
Is that a euphemism for tax avoidance?
Xiaomi and others have phones that are as well put together as iPhones, exceed every iPhone spec and have a UI on their Android to make it work in a similar manner to Apple. They've even got the supporting accessories.
Micro-kernel architecture, scalable from embedded systems to phones, tablets or desktops?
Surely that's Blackberry QNX, why re-invent the wheel, especially when the old one was so smooth?
never was there a more appropriate time to say that...
I can't see the logic, OK no-one is going to invade Iceland but it's a bit isolated. South Korea, great place, lousy neighbours. Canada, Norway, Sweden, Finland, cheap hydro, low cooling costs. Singapore? I suppose for APAC it's there, Australia or Taiwan but New Zealand should rate at least as well as Iceland, shouldn't it? Meh - is it based on who's spent the most entertaining the people who composed the report?
We (I'm Irish) may have a different government next year that we have this year, whereas I'm pretty sure Erdogan will still be President of Turkey by then.
Of course whichever shower we elect and whatever their platforms will work together to make sure nothing much changes, especially not corporate tax rates or inward investment programmes, while the Turkish government may drive tanks into your data centre and nationalise them at any instant. You pay your money and take your chances.
Iceland? Volcanoes, redundant routing options, geographic dispersal, availability of sufficient skilled workers, both construction and operations especially? I'd need to see C&W's raw data and idea of what a risk really means before committing (and I'm waiting for my download since before starting this comment, perhaps from a Turkish data centre).
This article is tree falling in the forest
Time to get those solar power satellites into production and move the cloud hosting sites above the clouds*.
*I call it SkyNet - any better suggestions?
I've been in a number of organisations which grew by merger and acquisition. That usually means they're focused on integrating the new and not refreshing the old. It may also mean the controlling part of the organisation is sweating the assets on it's subsidiaries. Sometimes that goes catastrophically wrong, say a bank has a few aging mainframe systems at it's core and minimises operating costs on them by finding cheaper and cheaper support options (looking right at you RBS) but quite often it just means a lack of flexibility and a veneer of new user interfaces around a stable but obsolete core, every one of which makes its it harder to change that core and every year passing takes those who know how to change it out of the skills pool. Once the problem is expensive enough, everyone may recognise it but the cost is really too high to bear "right now".
"It will ship in a few weeks for €449 (assuming the Euro currency still exists in a few weeks), making it one more ridiculously low priced flagship - saving some £100-£150 over an equivalent Samsung Sony or HTC. "
That assumes the English Pound doesn't continue to fall rendering Euro purchases too expensive.
It's illegal for a bar owner to allow anyone to _pretend_ to have sex with a buffalo _inside_ the bar?
So go all the way or take it outside?
If you use one of the other cloud vendors, you'll have services about equal to those offered by AWS two years ago. If you used AWS two years ago, that would be what you already have and you probably haven't had the business case to bring in the new bells and whistles.
As with any DR situation, going with a 2nd cloud vendor may need dropping off some of the niceties when you fail over and then fixing forward. Personally I think it would be worth it if a cloud vendor disaster happened (say the parent company's billing and data centres were in a Eurozone country and your currency just tanked against the Euro, or their Data Commissioner ruled your laws insufficient for data protection for EU citizens) to be able to move to a local cloud for local people or a US based one.
Because each layer down you go runs 10 times slower than the one above?
Not thermionic. The world needs a CPU that doesn't rely on this new fangled electricity.
That's a great idea, why don't you design a system that can do that and sell use of it to others online?
You'll need a three letter acronym and a catchy buzzword to market it though.
The article is saying keep your data in the EU unless you either don't need to or have a good reason not to (gambling or money laundering) but don't decide on the UK until it decides on the EU. After that I lost the thread of the argument, why not go with an existing cloud supplier hosting in Ireland?
I'll take that bet
Apple makes 2/3rds of it's money outside the US, which is a declining market. The PR boost in the growth markets of China would probably make it worthwhile
Although legally 18 year old girls may consent to have sex with me, experience shows they seldom do.
Working blind and getting the crap beaten out of you on a daily basis? Sounds familiar
Google shouldn't react to the flood of new content by letting a moribund site drift down in the rankings.
You should have had your tunnel built in Switzerland and shipped in once complete.
The Unibroue beers are nicer than anything else produced in North America.
Who can we ask?
To pay extra for a box
Might be a nice desktop
You don't want the communists getting hold of that!
That always terrifies the clergy...
