% Accuracy.

Perhaps they should forecast as a percentage of likely-hood. Like "there is a 70% chance of precipitation in your area this afternoon", or there is a "60% chance of a severe winter", then they have some wiggle room and can never be wrong.

That's how they do it in the US..... Just to stir up you haters.

Phones should be sold like cars.

Once you buy it you own the damn thing. You can buy gas and spares from any number of places.

The same should go for phones - buy "regular", "mid grade" or "premium" service from where you like on a day by day basis. No Damned contracts.

Might see some price wars. Whoopee!

Rights commission slams police DNA database advice

Coltek

@David Wilson

Of course they would not frame you.... Would they?.... All I was saying is that the burden of proof could be shifted by just asking if it could have been falsified..........

Your move Sherlock.

DNA can be falsified!

http://www.news-medical.net/news/20090818/DNA-evidence-found-at-crime-scenes-can-easily-be-falsified.aspx

This makes the database useless. The DNA that they hold can also be falsified to make it look like what (or who) they want it to be. Surely this is a good defence for anyone accused on DNA evidence.

I rest my case.
