Can we think of ways of making this an acronym though.
How about inserting a U sound GuDPuR?

Yes, the machine can render, but what I said was if you were using it for rendering you would no longer be able to create (AKA do work) because it was rendering hence making it an expensive paperweight.
If you were spending this much for a creative to work, you would want them working, not rendering.
You wold not be using a workstation for rendering. If you're stumping up this much money for a pretty PC you would have a dedicated machine rendering stuff out. If you didn't you'd not be able to create.
I do still remain confused about this sentence: Mainly true, but this thing is not really aimed at users of “productivity” software. Adobe tools are still productivity tools, just used for productivity in a different business than what you think the only productivity tools are.
When Microsoft decided to do a similar thing with IE10 (do not track) did they not get shot down and told it would be ignored?
I assume the firefox method is going to be more direct. Rather than a request it will outright just block the nasty practices?
Serves the ad slingers right IMO. Lets's hope they all start blocking it (hmmm Chromium)
From the horses mouth at the bottom of the piece you will find this enlightening information. Use it wisely and well.
Verity Stob is the pseudonym of a software developer based in London. Since 1988, she has written her "Verity Stob" column for .EXE magazine, Dr. Dobb's Journal and, since 2002, The Register.
If you were given 30 images of the fish in question and asked to compare I'm sure you would be 100% accurate.
It may take a while depending on the $animal and you may be bored out of your skull by then end of the process. But that is what this is, it's like the silhouette puzzles or a Where's Wally/Waldo). Your given the relevant info, you just need to study it.
To verify this I assume they had a human do so or how would you tell the computer got it right?
So, if it is not to apply globally. It is not actually a right to be forgotten.
Just don't let them see it in the EU or store it in the EU and pretend it is not there (in the rest of the world) when asked! Remember we don't like in a big world where people are allowed out of the bounds of their own states, and no one would dream of looking up the information that the courts have decided should be forgotten when they are out side said bloc/state!
Dabbs, you made an error in number 7. You wrote:
Beware of anything described as "AI" because this invariably means it isn't AI: it's just programmed that way. We should rebrand AI as PS = "Programmed Software".
I can see where the error occurred as the you saw the curl of the P thinking it was the B key you were pressing. We really should rebrand AI as BS!
Stolen is right IMO, taking something from somebody else without their permission.
It does not matter if it was in a publicly accessible place.
As an example your wallet is in a publicly accessible place most of the time when you are walking around. I bet you would still call it stealing if someone took it from you (probably not without a fight / chase if you noticed).
If it's not your's you have no right to take it unless given permission. It being visible to you does not give you that permission.
since the satellites' orbits take them in and out of Earth's gravity just a little
Aren't they always in Earth's gravity hence orbit otherwise known as perpetually falling? Otherwise they would be quite happily flying on to Andromeda or some such other far flung place.
That is unless another gravity hog pulled them in.
Came up on the first Google search so it must be right.
Acronym = Letters that from words
Abbreviation = Shortened word E.G. St, Dr etc
Initialism = First letter of each word and enunciated E.G. VIP
If I'm wrong blame Google, it's not that I'm lazy... honest!
They probably switched to DAB+ (AAC) which cannot be picked up by original DAB (MP2) receivers. Ofcom has said that everyone should migrate to DAB+, so in a few years you will hear nothing on a DAB receiver.
But when all the Dabby-ness of things was being debated, everyone in the know was saying mandate DAB+ but they decided to go with DAB. Now we are seeing what has happened because they did not listen. People purchased radios because they were told FM would get switched off. People can't get DAB+ but because they purchased a DAB radio don't understand why they can't get it, they got this new DAB thing that they were told to get but now it's not working.
To top it off they've now been told that it's because the thing they purchased in good faith, as it was to be the standard, is now a brick because everyone is moving to what should have been a standard, and they have to buy a new thing.
All they did with the silly awareness stuff and the lack of creating a proper standard for the UK was to confuse the whole issue and made people waste money.
Sorry rant off I'll get my coat.
I'm pretty sure most people, at least here on el'reg are not saying that the only way they check is if an email is properly written. An email having grammatical/spelling errors is just a big warning sign and the most obvious.
I've managed to get almost all of my users forwarding on messages of this type if they are unsure. And yes legitimate emails can come in with similar errors especially if you work with foreign companies etc. I've even seen some from British companies.
I've also got most checking links in emails before clicking and if possible going direct to the site and not via the link. This is much harder though, people going about their jobs want things to be easy. In their ind IT will clear up any issues... at least until I point out that the policy say they are to check these things first.
We can confirm that 10 customers have received discount codes which will allow them to purchase a Xiaomi device for £1.
There certainly were and the list is below:
Sam from Xiaomi Sales
Fred from Xiaomi Accounts
Sue from Xiaomi IT
Alex from Xiaomi Warehouse
Peter from Xiaomi Marketing
Anna from Xiaomi PR
Lilly from Xiaomi HR
Tom from Xiaomi Asset Department
Nancy from Xiaomi Production
Liam from Xiaomi IT (there are always more than one in IT, they swingle the database/code)
And there you have it the full list of winners. Their contracts of course state they cannot say they won.
Three may not, but they should not be the gatekeepers. If I wanted to use another service I should be able to. I pay Three (substitute any network here) for the connection, not the content. This type of behaviour is IMO anti-competitive / monopolist (IANAL don't quote me) and should not be offered free unless they do the same for every other streaming service.
Or as this is obviously a business due to the amount. Just pay the few quid it costs to have it disposed of properly.
On the other hand all Councils now actively encourage fly tipping IMO because they charge twice. First in your tax and then when you take stuff to the tip. Reap what you sow and all that.
Come on, the do not need to "rebuild the network," that's the point of FO. Once you have it in the ground and unless some builder goes through it or some other happenstance then changing the sender and detector is all that is needed.
Now, yes this may take a while to come down in price but saying they need to rebuild the networks is false. They first need to actually build a decent network which they continue to drag their feet with. And as for "paying for the investment" you see all them dividends and profits?
