If you are not trolling, then I can only think that you struggle with mental arithmetic. Do you really mean that you have to work out what 5 x 4 or 6 x 6 are every time you need to use them, instead of just knowing the answer?
That is the point of the exercise - not wasting time working out simple multiplication every time you need the result.
>>how can you be spanked for non-complience when you have no control over the code being used in the iframe?
To quote from another article:
"But the ICO will consider that websites will be responsible for all cookies on their site: even if the cookies come from third parties – for example from adverts provided by an advertising service. Sites that host advertising need to talk to their advertisers about what cookies the advertisers are serving up and then pass that information onto users.
"It's a complicated chain, I know," said the deputy commissioner, saying that they were in talks with advertising bodies about standards."
So, it's All Your Fault, even when it isn't...
>>The studio said it had reset passwords and sent emails out to all affected online role-players.<<
For a data breach that happened 2 years ago! I think they might as well not have bothered, any compromises will have taken place ages ago.
Talk about closing the stable door... the horse has bolted, found a new owner, and sired three foals by now...
>>Well, some of the patents that he cites contain prior art relating to gestural control. I think he's going to have a hard time claiming credit for inventing it when his own patent citations weaken the case.<<
But he's not claiming he invented it, he is merely saying that Apple's implementation of touch gestures infringe on the patent he was granted.
Yes, the Internet, not the World Wide Web. Don't mistake the one for the other. So for the Internet yes, definitely Hayes et al should get a mention, the advent of comparatively cheap, accessible commercially available modems made the difference in terms of consumers ability to access to the networks, which was the real start of the internet.
I rather think the main point being made here, is don't expect internet services to be a get-rich-quick scheme on which to base the country's economy. It seems that someone in the present government, or civil service, has Had A Thought, and decided we can become great again by writing lots of Apps.
Unfortunately, Britain / UK has always been famously bad at providing long-term investment capital for new ideas, hence the loss of so many engineering and other skills. I think it's true to say we could have been world leaders in a number of manufacturing or engineering niches, not least of which being computer hardware and software, had real venture capital been available.
I think that, in order to make it "sleeker" one would have to make it longer and wider - and therefore heavier - and so would lose it's nippiness, manoeuvrability and comparatively low price tag, as well as it's "almost-a-moped-but-better" credentials. That said, I have to agree, it's not pretty.
cock - male bird specifically chicken (see rooster)
capon - a castrated rooster
wattle - a fleshy growth under the chin of a male chicken
comb - the fleshy appendage on a male chicken's head
spurred - the rearward toe of a chicken's foot is often called a spur
coop - a place where chickens are kept
because you just know that the average punter (who has enough trouble remembering One pin, let alone two) will at some point type in the wrong one, or, more likely, will not remember the alternative pin at the crucial time due to brown-trouser issues.
If I had a FB account I can't see any reason why any employer should expect be granted access to my login details, they would be welcome to view the public profile, but why should any employer require your personal login.
As mentioned elsewhere some high security employers may require a vetting process - access to your bank statements etc, but even then, they wouldn't ask for your online banking password, would they?
I cannot see why any employer anywhere would think they have any rights to any personal login credentials, to anything. Would you give your employer your google mail account details, or your ebay account details?
Chimpanzees are of the genus "Pan" which is normally agreed to have two distinct species: Pan paniscus (the Bonobo) and Pan troglodytes (the common Chimpanzee).
Dogs, however are all considered to be a single species, Canis familiaris.
The distinction is due to the amount of differences between the DNA of the types, and also whether it is genetically possible for different types to interbreed - in the case of dogs, apart from sheer physical incompatability any breed of dog can produce viable offspring with any other breed of dog.
This is not believed to be possible between robust and gracile chimps.
