Re: EU Are Being Vindictive
I'm sure they'll let the UK pay to use it, if it's a key part of our defence.

Can't wait to welcome all those expat English people back from Spain; and the folks on Gibraltar, of course. I wonder if they can pick fruit?
I believe Clinton apologised for the mail server business.
Facebook is already in a PR tangle. I think they would be loathe to fan the flames by blocking a browser for offering privacy settings. More interesting will be if Mozilla follow suit.
As an old parent, with parents now in their early teens, parental controls were extremely useful, and not really a question of 'outsourcing'. The kids knew they got an hour a day, and didn't complain when the 5-minute warning appeared. What exactly is the problem?
> Some of it brings the limit up to legally requiring storing certain personal data for 25 years after they were last a pupil.
But you should store it until the pupil is 25.
Keep a log of those people who have successfull requested deletion.
If you restore a backup, re-run deletions from the time of the backup.
That log would be covered by legitimate interest.
I suspect El Reg mischievously took that quote from part of the press release and grafted the 'speaking of job cuts' bit so that we would all grab our pitchforks.
Having at least one contact for the domain sounds to me as if it is fundamental to the business of running the domain, so the lawful basis for collection wouldn't be consent - it would be contract:
* Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract you have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract.
Consent would be required for public display of the data.
I get pretty sick of the 'managers are arseholes' mantra. My wife's a hospital doctor. She's very glad that she doesn't get stuck with the shit that the managers have to deal with.
I disagree. It's calling Serena Williams a great tennis player.
From what I can tell, you hire that lot for 3 hours and then churn out 60 x 2 minute video using the same actors, costumes and sets. Boom, job done.
Lots of jokes when FaceID was first launched about your partner being able to unlock your phone by holding it in front of your sleeping face etc. I've no doubt the unfamiliarity will be a barrier (TouchID was similarly a bit scary when it first launched).
I don't have plans to get an X, and I'm not saying the system's good, however I don't think it is surprising that people are wary.
I've been running the beta in on a 2017 standard iPad and all the split screen and multitasking stuff is really good.
You need an iPhone - but you don’t need it with you. Handy if you’re canoeing or going for a run or whatever.
Apple requires you to have a passcode in addition to TouchID/FaceID
... horrible implementation
I'm a heavy Trello user, so downloaded this yesterday. It's written in Electron, is pretty laggy and when I last looked, was taking up about 700MB of RAM. Alerts are nice, but that's about all it offers me. I'll be sticking to the browser
I’ve been having a back and forth with HSBC about the text messages that they send you, if they believe that your card has been compromised.
You get a text from a random number, purporting to be from HSBC telling you to phone another random number urgently to discuss your account.
That number isn't a publicised number. Moreover, even if you search for it on the HSBC website to check if it is legit, nothing turns up.
I’ve had several arguments, but am unable to get through to anyone who seemingly understands.
Yes, I understand that you may not want to publicise the number on the site, but at least arrange things so that if a customer checks, the search function returns a page saying 'yes, this is a legit number for the department'.
To add insult to injury, HSBC keeps sending me marketing brochures explaining how important it is that I keep a look out for phishing attempts.
Is there anyone? FSA, ombudsman who would be interested in this issue? It’s only a matter of time before someone is spoofed and loses money.
... what actually locked you into your beliefs that climate change is a hoax.
> Regardless, the subject (CAGW) is in effect, an apocalyptic religion.
Well, a religion except for the whole issue of it being based on sound scientific evidence and observation, of course. The faith-based argument is the one that says that the greenhouse gases that human activity has been generating isn't having any effect, despite the evidence that it is.
A really nice article Simon, thanlks for writing it.
Very strict rules about 'science only questions' - so, I presume this was just the mods deleting stuff that didn't follow those rules.
So, to be clear - you're fine with a president firing an FBI head, simply because he is change of an investigation that may prove politically embarassing, and refuses to say he will be loyal?
Should the new FBI chief be required to swear an oath of fealty to Donald as part of the confirmation hearings?
Are you not the least interested in finding out how Russia tinkered with the US election?
Lets also not forget that Apple's beta software tends to be pretty battery-heavy, but then gets better optimisations before release. So it could well improve fairly rapidly with age.
Except of course - how are you going to get those images to the doctor's desk? USB stick? Mmmm. Two entirely separate PCs on each Doctor's desk on two separate networks?
I'm still astonished by the number of people who use Whatsapp -which demands access to *all* your contacts
Still upset that he took all your guns?
... oh wait.
So the Trump campaign Website still has the pledge to ban Muslims up. The order bans all travel apart from from 'persecuted religious minorities' aka Christians. It is a policy carefully constructed to be a Muslim ban and only someone incredibly naive would think otherwise.
Is this the same NCC that used to be the National Computing Centre?
Did they actually find out what they thought, or did they just see a bizarrely skewed interpretation a la pizzagate,
What is it about Trump fans their love of capital letters?
Gove's education policy was a prime example of his 'experts? What do they know?' Core belief (another school governor)
One thing that may give you pause for thought. While the system was indeed pump-primed by showing its neural networks passed games, it has apparently improved substantially in the last few months (since its games against the European champ) through the simple expedient of repeatedly playing itself .
Every reputable journalist will approach the subject of the article if it is being criticised and offer the chance to comment yes - that is exactly how it works.
Yup, any schools using London Grid for Learning for connectivity are having a bad time right now.
I seem to remember with the Apple IIs, you had to also open them up and push all the RAM chips back in with a satisfying crunching noise as they tended to walk out of their sockets after a while due to thermal expansion.
Never had any problems with Mail.app, Safari or indeed iPhotos/now Photos. iMovie does the business for simple video, assuming you are happy to assemble in linear fashion. Pages is pretty good if you want simple and effective Newsletter layout, for everything else there is MS Word or Indesign.
So in summary - the Apple apps are just fine for everyday use. I think the person destined for the 'shortbus' is probably the person who makes such a meal of them.
No, I'm not going defend iTunes.
It really is possible to set up an iPhone so that it doesn't Hoover up your details.
It's nice that you trust your VPN provider so fully.
I would *hope* that Apple would check and pull any apps from the Store that use this exploit.
> I have no idea why commercial camera solutions can't record to a NAS and you just log onto your NAS to see the pictures taken.
I think the issue is simply that there are advantages in having off-site storage for security images. Your NAS system is fine until someone walks off with the NAS or burns the house down.
The move is to do with data legislation, or Dropbox attempting a little tax avoidance. Comments?
Hang on? I've got 10.10.3 running on a 2007 iMac with 3Gigs of RAM. I agree about the stupidity of the new 21" iMacs not having accessible RAM slots, but if you've got one of those, it wouldn;t have shipped with less than 8Gigs.
It's here for download https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1804?locale=en_GB
Not exactly sure what you mean by 'babysitting a GUI app'. The Appstore pretty good at resuming interrupted downloads. Sounds like you want to be angry for the sake of it.
... Whereas you could be quite reasonably angry about them not providing patches for Lion, Mountain Lion and Mavericks.
> not sure how "startup" became a synonym for "new"
They aren't synonyms - as can be seen from the way that the article applies startup to a 2008 company.
Hence startup is a state of mind. You're the one confusing yourself.
It's been a few months since I wrestled with trying to reset a mail password on Virgin, but it used to be hilariously bad. The system disallowed my choices for being too long, then for having a space in, then for having the wrong kind of punctuation in the wrong places. Amateurs.
Quite often on long journeys, its nice for the wife to be able to channel surf or put some music on or whatever, while I concentrate on the road. This looks to be impossible with this set-up. Yes?
Personally, I think Newsnight did it on purpose to see if they could give the reg staffer some kind of smugness-embolism.
Did Kelly survive? That's what I want to know.
That make me yearn for the dear, departed 'rate this article' widget, so I could hit '1'.
> No. What caused their downfall was being forced to do what Microsoft wanted.
No. Their downfall was already well underway by then.
