Don't worry, the UK is ahead of Australia still.
Soon, Nigeria will be ahead of Australia as well.

We,, the article says that the Jeeps in question are Wranglers - I think this is one of the less expensive models. According to the Web, the highest list price (no discounts) for a Wrangler model is $ 37k. The lowest is $24 K (again, without any discount).
If you can take a $ 37k vehicle apart and sell its stolen, used parts on the black market for a profit of $ 30k, then either you are a Trump-like sales genius, or the buyers are 100% mugs.
Why hasn't the ever-interfering EU (at least that's what my Brexiteer mother calls it) harmonised premium rate numbers, in the same way they harmonised mobile to 07 numbers and emergency calls to 112?
Where are the interfering, busybody Eurocrats when you need them?
I'm already paying about $10 more for 25 mb/s NBN than I was paying for (approx. 16 mb/s) ADSL. And that's with only a fraction of my previous quota, and no PSTN-type phone, so I have no phone service in a blackout.
So I was far from tempted to go 100 mb/s, especially as it is unlikely to provide much benefit to many websites due to congestion elsewhere in the Internet. This goes double for overseas sites, i.e. those I visit the most.
At least in these incidents, cabin crew did the sensible thing, involving a bucket of water.
Not like the bunch of losers at Southwest with the Note 7 who evacuated the whole aircraft over one smouldering phone....
" the operators' lobby Mobile UK said if roaming were enforced, there'd be no incentive for operators to build infrastructure."
Unless the operators were told to charge each other extortionate fees for roaming on each others' networks, while still providing such a service free to customers.
I think we'd then see a sudden surge in infrastructure creation.
"What I had hoped to find out in the article was: How did they find out this was a problem?"
The did tests with dummies, according to The Economist. The Economist also reckons the main problem is the helmet, rather than the seat itself.

Never seen an article on this site with so many typos...
"we are going to change who we are providing the services too"
"did our best to broaden our broaden definition of immediate circle"
....plus the odd grammatical error. The word "university" does not have a capital letter.
You're getting almost as bad as the Grauniad or BBC, El Reg!
The article says the X boson is 30 x the mass of the electron, and that it decays into an electron-positron pair.
This implies that it loses 28 x electron masses when it decays. That's a lot of energy emitted - surely it should have been easily detectable previously?
I suppose I have succumbed to some fundamental misunderstanding here. Can someone help me out?
No need to challenge Microsoft in the courts if you bought through a retailer. In countries like Australia, UK and NZ, the retailer is responsible for what they sell.
In the UK, I successfully got a refund on a PVR when the electronic program guide it used was scrapped. The box was more than 3 years old, but I argued it was now effectively useless. I was given a refund without any quibble by the retailer (Boots, of chemist fame).
