And blackboard monitor
Exactly - we would be in much better shape if our universities concentrated on teaching students exactly what keys to press to make this year's model of a certain American router do the things required in the router maker's certification course.
Instead of wasting their time inventing anything new or educating students to invent anything new.
I just have two machines, one has wake on lan and a video camera to see the bios screen error messages on the other - and a robot arm to press the "any key" on the server that has decided to stop booting to ask me if I want to load default bios settings after a power glitch
Their main business is B2B
All that cheap stuff you can now buy in the UK is being sourced from Alibaba by UK distributors.
That's the real win, you no longer need years of relationship building, introductions, visits etc to become an importer/manufacturer with sources in China.
Blame N Korea for the breach and arrest the guy that found it for super-secret-cyber-terrorism
And compared to the range of body sizes between a mouse and a horse?
They probably aren't even that.
What with real neon nixie tubes requiring rather entertaining voltages most of these projects use a 7 segment LED inside a plastic bottle.
So why not an arduino. There is even a mini-arduino made specifically to sew onto clothing.
Currency may or may not be intangible - but money is.
The money may be represented by gold, currency backed notes or fiat but the monetary value still depends on someone willing to swap gold for something you can eat. The value is still dependent on people agreeing that gold has value.
The exchange regulates the sale because you are buying selling contracts in $US to US residents
It doesn't say anything about the freedom of bitcoins anymore than about the rights to own pork bellies
Didn't Sun once post alarm clocks to lots of Fortune500 countries as a "wakeup to switch to solaris" ad campaign - and caused havoc in mail rooms all over the city
Wasn't the French editor of the late lamented .EXE magazine stopped and searched for carrying a backpack on the tube in London and then subjected to the full "stand on his head and point guns at him" routine when they discovered it had ...computer cables ... in it ?
Remember robots are being designed and built by giant companies.
once they achieve full AI they wont rise up and kill us, they will hold meetings to discuss the new paradigm in light of the companies synergistic mission statement going forward.
Skynet will then begin to evolve at an exponential rate - but only in the rate at which it can generate Powerpoint presentations.
They were forced to update from stone tools to ones made of bananas - because we need to play catchup with another soft fruit technology.
It's certainly novel to have a labour party member as leader.
In fact somebody called Oscar could probably sue the academy
It isn't a coded second channel like the original military GPS.
The paid for service is differential correction signal - just like the ones you can currently buy for GPS.
What isn't clear is how Galileo hopes to monitise this when anyone with a fixed Galileo recover and a web site can offer their own free or paid for correction signal.
Why couldn't Loran be used globally?
All you need to do is march ashore, plant a flag, claim the territory and setup a Loran transmitter.
Any problems with the natives can be dealt with by a bit of cold steel - "they don't like it up em"
That sounds very close to what the Apple app-store demands or even Amazon's deal with authors for ebooks.
So everybody who sells stuff on ebay without their own corporation is an employee of ebay?
They should also watch out for anybody with a big white beard working away on a book about economics - they can really cause trouble
The principle developers of Tor for a decade were DARPA, ONR and the Naval Research Laboratory
The machine you bought on amazon needs something fixing - are IT allowed to bill you $300.hour consultancy, or are they expected to just fix it as a favor?
When you decide to do your own security and a virus takes out the system, or leaks data - are the IT dept allowed to sue you ?
Are IT allowed to bid on contracts to manage other firms IT if you are allowed to get external contractors ?
>so drop-down, unchanging menus is about the only thing she can apparently cope with
Imagine a car where an accidental swipe of the sat-nav could hide the steering wheel or brake pedal and take 10mins of rooting around menus to re-enable them.
There have been plane crashes where the same knob was used to set decent rate and heading, with the difference being a selection on a menu on another screen.
I went when it was first opened - they had one very impressive piece.
A giant yellow crane running along the ceiling of the big hall with a sign "not certified for lifting"
Obviously a metaphysical critique on the very meaning of a crane for which "I lift therefore I am" is the core of it's essential being.
A bit like that French painting with "this is a not a pipe" but on a giant scale - and more suitable for a non-smoking facility.
You don't need to recognise a computer at all - that's the point of the cloud.
Ability to recognise a cloud may be an advantage
Suppose Hungary was to deal with it's immigration problems by charging all of the migrants 1000eu for a Hungarian passport and then offering subsidised 1eu flights to Dublin. Think Ireland would consider that fair movement of people and services through the Eu?
We shut down all our industry to concentrate on selling oil to the US and coal to China.
And we did it with the most expensive to extract oil on earth - go Canada.
Perhaps some sort of "golf - just say no" campaign aimed at these poor children ?
>So there is honesty amongst thieves.
Not really - they have obviously based their extortion operations in Luxemburg as a tax scam
And why would you ?
Have you seen how much nicer the people from the Danelaw are, than those southern Saxons ?
It will be expensive for that many senior police officers to visit Brazil to search for the culprit.
It will probably have to wait for next years budget, perhaps Rio sometime in August ?
If the problem is that they are too big and still can't hold useful batteries why not make them even bigger but put them around your waist?
They could vibrate to let you know you have a call and you with NFC you can bonk the bar to pay for your drinks. I assume Texas Instruments will be the first to market.
No problem with the cut lawyers take on class actions - they are investing a lot of time+money up front for a case that may never pay off. A lot of these cases would never come to court if an individual had to pay lawyers to go up against a dozen $bn corporations.
It's that the fine was so small that it would almost be negligent for a corporation not to break the law.
There are also a lot of other people (like me) who lost money even though we don't work for any of these companies, because wages are set by market averages.
$415M, half goes to the lawyers. So the 64K employees share $200M = $3K each, or about the difference in one month's salary between what they were paid and what they could have been paid in a competitive marker.
So the industry really learned a lesson here - save $50K/year for your 100K employees over 10 years and be fined 1/1000 of the amount you saved.
>Won't work: The woman has the right to withdraw consent at any point, up to and including the finale.
Threesomes with your lawyer?
So we take in the nasty toxic waste oxygen produced by these evil trees and convert it into nice tasty carbon dioxide food for them.
I for one welcome our leafy overlords...
The ground support, data analysis and research cost is 2x as high for 2 missions and any design fault will fail in both missions
When did medicine start being science…?
>You would have the first backwards flying golf cart, but not in a good way...
Unless you had 2 equal and opposite gattling guns ....
Also useful in busy traffic
The big difference is that we had to throw away a scanner and a bunch of printers when windows7 came out. When everybody goes to w10 we assume we are going to have to buy new printers etc.
Still have a couple of XP machines because we have a $25K bit of hardware purchased in 2012 that can only be controlled from 32bit XP
And the subcontractor was testing loads of cable, then driving the "tested" load around the corner back into the works and testing it again - while shipping untested cable to the site.
We would have had the same technologically led massive economic growth but it would have been concentrated in the hands of a few lucky owners of a few massive corporations.
Imagine if half the country's GDP and the only growth industries were owned and controlled by a handful of people who when they can't control government can simply ignore them.
And there is no job locally for the other half, and when you are made redundant in the next round of savings - what is there locally ?
Nobody lives in London, or New York, because they like it - it's because you can walk out of one job and into another without the whole family having to move across the country
The US does at least have laws requiring the NSA to be legal.
In the UK there is no general ban on evidence obtained illegally.
It's only a problem if the police obtain the evidence illegally.
Somebody could trespass and report seeing a murder - the police wouldn't ignore the call because the person was on the property illegally.
eg, the new mini, the new beetle, the new fiat 500, pretty much anything from RangeRover
> I'm more curious about whats under the bonnet- than on the dashboard...........
Then you would represent a very small minority of <25year olds
The level of dissinterest in cars for young, educated, well-off, city dwellers is amazing.
