You're right. Bad Reg should have checked this.

FTA: People have already enjoyed "machine learning" (sic) in the form of data detectors
Surely that should read: People have already "enjoyed" machine learning.....
"Then what's the basis for calling it "IPA" when it's not actually destined for India?"
Because IPA is a style of beer. It's no longer brewed for export to India, but the style is popular and the name has stuck. I very much doubt that Porter is drunk by many Covent Garden market porters these days either.
You call yourself Homer, but I rather doubt that you've written any epic Greek poetry lately. Perhaps you have more in common with the yellow Duff beer drinking variety.
I'm trying it now. Can't figure out how to import a certificate into it, so that I can use it for work. Does anyone know?
Take a look at his list of 'achievements' on his site. I wonder how many of them are fabrications - petersage.com/about/
A simple solution would be to put your router in a faraday cage
Did you read the actual patent? It describe using the phone's camera(s) to determine whether it is the driver who is using it.
However, it's not Apple's job to enforcing the law. Why aren't they suing the police for not catching this guy before he killed someone? After all, that is their job.
I'm working on a robot cleaner that *does* go through your stuff and steal things. But only very occasionally, so that you don't suspect it.
But, oddly enough, the Sky News website seemed to be very much pro-Remain. Go figure.
Yesterdays judgement contained the following statement, "The 2015 Referendum Act was passed against a background including a very clear briefing paper to Parliamentarians explaining that the referendum would have advisory effect only."
So Parliament were told that the referrendum as only advisory whilst, as you state, the leaflet that went out to households suggests the opposite. So someone has most definitely been misled.
Given my experience of Siri, it would either answer, "Sorry I do not know what France is" or else, "The capital of France is a large city".
Siri - artificial stupidity at it's finest.
I'm not convinced that removing the headphone jack is a smart move, but how exactly is Bluetooth 'vendor lock-in'?
So what kinds of 4G speeds are Reg readers getting?
According to the Speedtest.net app on my phone, I'm getting 42Mbps in Isleworth (West London).
I looked into the TomTom action camera, but they've completely failed to cater for the needs of a huge segment of action camera users - namely helmet cameras for bikers and cyclists.
Though even GoPro haven't really figured that out either. Surprisingly, it's another British company, Drift, who seem to best understand what helmet camera users are looking for. I see so many bikers and cyclists with helmet cameras in London, that I find it odd that the manufacturers are neglecting this segment of the market.
Has cause of death been established? As the BBC article states that he'd stabbed himself and a dog with a knife, the headline could just as accurately have been written as "Man dies after stabbing himself".
Until there's an autopsy, we really don't know if he died as a result of the taser, or a self-inflicted knife wound. So perhaps we shouldn't be making judgements based on what headline writers want us to think.
I'm thinking of a song by the worlds most ultra-cool dwarf....
Boys and girls, I think you’ll find
That my pants will blow your mind
Look at my pants with the eyes in your face
My legs are covered in outer space
I've just downloaded the iOS version. It looks excellent. I'll definitely be using this.
"BBC Micro Model A of 15 years ago". The BBC model A was introduced in 1981. Clearly history (or simple arithmetic) is not the authors strong point.
"Micro:Bit’s two ARM Cortex MPUs are descended from the Risc chips of that old Acorn machine." Again complete inaccurate, as the BBC micro used the MOS 6502 processor. It was the later Archimedes that used the first ARM chips.
I don't dare read any further.
I very nearly downloaded Transmission for my Mac this weekend. The reason being that I've just bought a Pi 3 for my 7 year old and was downloading Raspberian. There's an option for downloading via bittorrent. Since the http download was going very slowly, I considered downloading Transmission and using that instead. In which case, I'd have ended up with this malware on my Mac.
There are other open source projects (Libreoffice springs to mind) that provide torrents for downloading, so there are certainly legitimate uses for installing Transmission.
So I hope that you're downvoted to the pits of hell, where you obviously belong.
Order a Spectrum by March for delivery by September. It's like 1982 all over again. At least this time Sinclair isn't claiming that this is '28 days'.
And then forgot to test the edge-case.
So have OS X and iOS. So what's your point?
The article is four and a half years old, so I guess that, back then, they couldn't have predicted Microsoft's rape and murder of Nokia. I'd imagine that it didn't occur to the analysts that Microsoft would just throw away such a potential advantage.
This is less about the analysts being muppets (though some certainly are), and more about Microsoft insane decisions which have destroyed chances in the mobile market.
It has been pointed out by a number of people elsewhere, that this payment story is a nice misdirection to divert people's attention away from the real issue which is that TOR isn't secure.
"The secure random keys and initialisation vectors generate information from the libc rand() function, and are seeded with the current system timestamp at the point of encryption. This information can be easily retrieved by looking at the file’s timestamp"
I guess that these muppets failed Crypto-101.
Yes, and maybe Islamic State might use them for terrorist attacks too.
#sarcasm - in case that ain't bleedin' obvious.
I can hear it crawling in my ear tonight, oh Lord ;)
Really would prefer not to have that song as an ear-worm.
I'm pretty sure that I heard that some time in the late 80's, or possibly early 90's.
Upvoted from my Linux desktop ;)
I learned the miraculous hangover-curing properties from a Scottish colleague. If there's a bottle of fizzy orange-coloured gloop on my desk, then my fellow code-monkeys know that I've had a good night.
If he thinks that streaming audio is "the worst quality in the history of broadcasting", then he's obviously forgotten all about AM radio.
And obviously we all need ultra-high fidelity to fully appreciate Mr Youngs guitar feedback and distortion </sarcasm>
Much as I love his music, I think he's totally off-base with this one.
That's the problem with Nadella. You have to run everything he says through the Corporate Bullshit to Plain English translator.
Apple is lowering prices for Apple. There's little chance that they'll lower prices for us.
According to the Financial Times (and they should know), these coins can be spent in Belgium, just not anywhere else in the Eurozone. Thought it's not expected that people will spend them, as they're primarily collectors items, hence the €6 price tag.
As Mr Newton once said, F=MA. So how much would the weight of those five adults impact the 0-60 time?
Also, whilst I'm happy to launch a vehicle at full thrust with just me onboard, I wouldn't want to do it when carrying my own ankle biter.
A 0-60 time of 3.2 is ONLY deeply impressive for a tin can on wheels ;)
Any reasonably sporty motorbike can equal or beat that. Though it would require an extremely good rider to launch a bike that quickly. I suspect that it would be a lot easier for the Tesla's driver.
Unless it uses interference patterns of light to create 3D images, then it isn't really holographic. I wonder if Microsoft could be censured for false advertising.
Though you don't have to use the hubs internal wifi. You can connect any wifi router you like to it.
The main reason that TV uses this spectrum is historical. TV's tend to be large, heavy and fixed in one place. So it would make sense for their content to be provided by cable, satellite or internet, and use the broadcast spectrum for mobile devices.
Of course, in practice this will be difficult to achieve, but it may happen eventually.
For desktop *nix, OS X is so far ahead that I've given up hoping that Linux will ever catch it.
Though for server *nix, OS X is a complete non-starter.
Much as I love Linux (and use it all day long at work), I still reluctantly pay the 'Apple Tax' and put up with the almost non-upgradable hardware for my home machines, just so that I can enjoy the best deskop OS.
Depends on how famous you are.
What about using something like the Suzuki GSX1250 (Bandit) engine in one? It's certainly not a mega-powerful race engine at under 100bhp, but is an absolute torque-monster with around 81 lbf·ft (108nm) at just 3,750rpm. I was once lent a Bandit 1250 and it's a cracking powerplant for road use.
My 2.7 diesel s-type Jag with an auto box reports an average of 35mpg. In contrast, my previous 2.0 manual diesel Mondeo would average 45mpg (and get up to 60mpg on motorways).
It sounds as if the EU testing needs some rethinking.
When they shot the moon-landing photos in a studio, not only did they forget about the stars, but they also brought in a huge fan to make the flag flutter.
That's the only possible explanation ;)
I can only imagine that these trolls are blessed with the similar good looks and intelligence as other, recently convicted, internet trolls such as John Nimmo and Isabella Sorley.
Send the Americans a cask of London Pride. That should help to even the odds somewhat. Though most of their team would be too young to drink it.
I'm not convinced by this. Us 45-year olds have grown up with technology, from the Spectrums, BBCs, Ataris and Commodores of our youth, though the PC era to todays tablets and smartphones.
My 6-year old is pretty technically savvy (and can leave me in the dust at Super Mario), but there's no way that he could match my tech skills.
"Firefox is well-behaved these days regarding memory"
I came in to work this morning and found my (Linux) PC almost completely unresponsive.
top showed that Firefox was using 95% of the 12GB ram and, including swap space, a total of 17GB.
So about as well-behaved as a ravenous sabre-toothed tiger.
Bans don't work unless they're enforced, and I don't see a lot of that happening in London.
I was riding over the Brent Cross flyover this morning and passed a woman in a car who was holding her phone in front of her face and texting. When I hooted her, she put the phone down and gave me the finger. I was tempted to wait until the traffic stopped and then conduct a little experiment on whether a car wing mirror could stand up to the impact of a fist in a motorbike glove. Decided against it as there was another biker behind me and I didn't want to hold him up.
