I already have my opinions.
Ridiculous, has anyone here ever heard of someone forgetting a password?
Which reminds me, I recently came across some old text files encrypted in vim. Can anyone tell me how to read them before the feds knock down the door.
Not just the UK, in my brand new apartment in Brazil all three showers had drainage points in the highest part of the floor. Must be something to do with being in the southern hemisphere and what Brazilians thinks of as down is really up
They did it on the balcony floor too!.
Mathematically impossible, baseball bats pshaw! The politicians think that they can solve any problem with a new law.
I am shocked by her suggestion. Pulling out is not a good method of contraception. She should be ashamed of herself.
Reminds me of the old millionaire's adage:
"If it flies, floats or F***s: rent don't buy
I am not sure if kernel development will be able to continue when the millennium generation arrive, they will faint at the first message from Linus and demand a safe space
So the solution is to monitor your baby with a webcam, they have good security ... err ... I'll get my coat.
Putting on my pedant's hat: yes a minor can enter a contract but not all are enforceable. Only contracts for necessities are binding.
I hope it does not have rounded corners, Apple already invented them.
At least it wasn't one of Putin's cyberlackies :)
It is probably a bit drastic to move to Brazii just to get good sports TV. I can get the golf majors, Tour de France, F1, Wimbledon, most important rugby internationals, loads of European soccer including live UK Premiership matches and loads more. Over half have commentaries in English too. Pity I don't get most Brazilian footie :)
If you talk like Prince Charles hice is singular.
Wow, Google have a hot line to the White House. Who would ever have thought that?
Electric cars will be using all the world's electricity long before 2040 so plan to get rid of your toaster, computer, lights etc and live in the car.
What about BASIC?
I would think that the people involved would know about EXIF data and be clever enough to edit it if they were trying anything dodgy. So my verdict is they are guilty of sloppiness rather than dishonesty
I bet they hacked that as well.
If you look at the source of their home page you will wonder how it got as big as it is. The statistics were:
266 Lines 42018 words 194,501 characters and 194502 Bytes.
All that to show a graphic, a few icons and a dozen or so words. Yes, I know it is a bit more complicated than that but ....
"Curious - that's me too, and it's been like that for years. Anyone else?"
Does anyone use it any other way?
You mean you will be unhinged?
we have been told about data security.
There are gazillions of web pages telling us how to safely dispose of hard drives. Everything from multiple overwrites to break them into a thousand pieces, heat them to 1000 degrees, grind them to powder and put it all in a safe for the next thousand years.
Now it seems that all one needs to do is run rm -rf as root "you just nuked your entire company.”
I think he meant 'viscous'
I think I had better upgrade my password from password. How about Passw0rd Job done :)
You should try living in Brazil where pull is 'puxe' which is pronunced 'push'.
I wouldn't give two cents for one of those
Just my 2c
I can see why they are trying to get this treated as a medical device: the doctors will be very keen to drum up a bit of extra business dealing with gunshot wounds.
That is a a very old chestnut and virtually without foundation.
The company will sell its products for what the market will bear and as long as the costs of production show a sufficient margin the product will be made and marketed at a price. If a company's overheads are so high or its turnover so low it cannot make an acceptable profit it is ready to be sold, reorganised or wound up.
It would have been much more accurate to say:
Yes, but every shareholder is paying for that.
"We'll happily take our 8Bn U$ as a fine since we made 20Bn U$ in sales we otherwise wouldn't have made"
That's what Ford thought when they did a cost/benefit analysis and decided that it would be cheaper to kill a few people than fix the design fault in the exploding Pinto. They were wrong.
Can you imagine an American jury deciding on punitive damages against a foreign company fraudulently selling a product (diesel engined cars) that American manufacturers don't make? How many zeros would you like? BP are handing over 50 billion to avoid the jury lottery and legal costs.
Time will tell but I very much doubt if VW are forced to pay at least the last ten years' profits earned in the US.
"Everybody writes something so cringingly crawley about Assange or full of vitriol.
I have yet to meet anybody who doesn't hate him however"
I think of him in the same way that I think about Margaret Thatcher. Lots of good work done in the early years before they went mad
Profit? hmm. Maybe the boffins posting in this thread can work out the cost of the paint. While they are at it calculate how long before it explodes/collapses/bursts into flames.
Excellent article which has opened my eyes.
Sadly not even El Reg readers seem to care much. So far 13 comments and none of them upvoted more than ten times. It is going to be very hard work to persuade anyone of any importance to take up the banner.
Spoken by someone under the age of 50. I recently started to collect my pension and for years have had trouble using small screens. They only reason for me to buy a 5.5" screen is because I cannot find a bigger one.
Incidentally I was all ready to order the Idol 3 based on this review until I saw the last paragraph. If I wanted a fixed battery I would have tried a iPhone. My wife is never without two spares for her Galaxy S3.
Yes, like all the tech love expressed here for Google Glass
You forgot to mention taking finger off screen :)
I don't know about using Marmite as a lubricant but Vegemite has its good points when used as thermal paste
Reminds me of a pal who is a consultant gynaecologist. His reply, when asked for free advice at a social event his reply is:
'I could not possibly answer without making a thorough examination, if you could loosen your clothes and lie down on the carpet I will do what I can'
""The US has a law that requires anyone that has this data to report to the government ..."
Of course they don't, they don't need laws, don't need anyone to report anything the NSA, CIA and friends just barge in and take whatever they want. I doubt if China behaves any differently.
OMG! They killed Kenny!
The really rich and cool bosses just take $1 pa just to show how trivial a few million is.
Buffet, Page, Bezos etc
Well he would, wouldn't he?
FAST should be congratulated for being so worried about protecting children against dangerous toys and horsemeat. It is a calumny to suggest that they are at all concerned about the revenue of its members.
It was a case of who blinked first.
I think they are happy with the current deadlock
Wow, that would be expensive! But:
Dyn offers a 14-day free trial, after which Dynamic DNS Pro costs $25 per year. ®
Still, even at $25 pa there are alternatives.
I can be a pedant too. I think you meant to say:
Teach a (hu)man how to fish and (s)he will eat for the rest of (her)his life.
Even then it seems to imply that humans are female.
