Re: Bit pricey and it'll be a few more months until it's out but...
The Atom X7-Z87xx processor is actually quite good.
Why not look up specs and benchmarks before condemning something?
I think spammers work on a 0.0001% response rate or lower!
is that a PS2, USB or bluetooth mouse it captures? I guess the latter for the IoT connection?
Re: "Do you pay "rental" for the electrical supply cable coming into your home,"
OTOH the concept of "line rental" on a mobile phone is complete BS
I'm surprised they don't have a special charge called "base station maintenance" or "tower antenna maintenance" instead of line rental.
I suppose a cork is too simple a solution?
I have a Sony phone which has a magnetically attached charge coupler, much like the old Apple magcharge connector.
It's quick to connect, doesn't lose power like Qi, and the phone is still waterproof. You can still use the microUSB socket to charge if you wish.
Such a shame Sony dropped this feature, when instead it should have become a standard.
I used to go to the USA two or three times a year to visit relatives and for a holiday, spending thousands each time on a hotel, car hire, subsistence, gifts etc.
I started to cut down after "9/11" because getting into the country made me feel like a criminal, even though I am middle class white european male to the 4th generaion with a UK passport etc.
I've not been in three years now, and I estimate it's cost their economy over $15000... and counting.
I know there are many others like me. I've heard of Chinese companies trying to send people to do trade deals being turned away, and spending millions in Europe instead as they are welcomed with open arms.
Surely His Highness Donald and all his business owning buddies would want the tourists's money rather than turning them away in droves?
new TV show
Trump is a big fan of Reality TV. He clearly wants to remake an existing show but with a new twist and a new name, a program to reveal peoples' secrets, and it will be called "Stasi In Their Eyes."
I'll get my coat.
Skylake was so last year, Kaby Lake is here!
same socket though, so hopefully a firmware update will allow Kaby Lake CPUs to work.
Synopsis: When a mysterious misshapen orange troll rises to power in the near dystopian future and declares war on common sense and logic, a group of unlikely heroes rise to combat his insanity and spark rebellion.
Ah, one day they'll make a movie about this. Trump Wars Episode 1: Rise of the Park Rangers it'll be called.
Credit to my daughter who said this when we chatted about it.
Re: The Forbes article on this suit
Well, yes it is. If you're a business and want things to run faster, it costs more money. You either make it faster or wider (more parallel operations). Oracle chose to charge more if you do the latter.
Re: So the fires were the result of...
It's the tech bloggers masquerading as reviewers.
I'm sure many only get to keep the phone for a short while, maybe a matter of hours, so never have to live with the deficiencies, or see the beautiful device crumble or its shiny finish strip away over the a few weeks of use.
Re: Not proven
Even cartoons can be considered, legally, to be child porn
Why is it that a man who's not been convicted of a crime now has all his details plastered over the internet?
I'm all for prosecuting people who do horrible things, but the due process of the law is innocent until proven guilty.. and not trial by media.
the smart toothbrush is far more useful!
it should also receive fewer stars because they're not repairable. may your deity have mercy on your wallet if you didn't buy Applecare and your mac dies.
it's called an air-gap firewall. stops phishing, viruses, pr0n etc.
and in other news: farm yard workers, who report that the horse already ran away whilst the owners are busy locking the stable, are to be prosecuted.

These devices are all made in China and either flown in or come by boat in a container, probably to Rotterdam and/or Harwich.
There shouldn't really be more than 10% variation across Europe.
If you do try to buy the phab2 pro smartphone off one of the Lenovo European shops, they'll only let you enter that country as a shipping address.

Anyone who wishes to use that phrase must pay a licence fee; the licence fee is £1 or $1, to be paid to the Cancer Research charity.
Re: Fancy that
I disagree. There are many environments, usually in the work place, where playing with your mobile phone would meet with frowns or worse, but discretely checking a watch is not even noticed.
I feel sorry for Cory Sindelar, imagine having to scrape by with just $150,000 in the bank? I'm sure his family will have to cut back this christmas or something, maybe fly business instead of first.
Re: Here's the full list...
I've never used a Draytek vigor, apart from the simplest DSL bridges, which didn't leave me angry at their crapness.
Theresa May seems to think that all UK citizens are potential terrorists and paedophiles.
My theory is that people tend to think other people are like themselves, that they mostly share the same ethics, morals and attitudes.
What does that say about May?
Re: Solder not Socket...
May your deity give you comfort if your 2016 Macbook Pro develops a fault and you have no warranty, as you'll be throwing it away.
"Repairability 1 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)"
this reminds me of how Toy Story2 was nearly deleted
12 percent oc statistics on the internet are entirely made up
I recall one reviewer saying the new Macbook Pro is really a Macbook Air-plus model. If they'd called it that, people would be delighted.
Join me, in the Campaign For Actual Real Tabs - CFART!
I think tabs, hard tabs, should be used as god indented, or intended, and stick with 8 columns. That's the default, it works, and as long as you don't f**k with your editor settings, everybody sees the same.
If you want anything else, use spaces. And again, everybody sees the same thing. A good editor can use any number of spaces for indentation, so if you're going to d**k around with the editor's configuration, use spaces and make the editor do all the work.
The worst messes I've ever seen in source code are when muitple people have used hard tabs and defined them as different shifts, but all done it differently.
good guys Belkin, instead of suing the people finding these faults and thus suppress the knowledge, they fix it.
if I was in the market to buy IoT stuff, I'd be putting Belkin at or near the top of my list.

Re: C'mon Aussie
It's just capitalism at its worst.
BT have no real competition, and inherited a truly national copper based network, they can make decent money without upgrading the infrastructure. Why should they do more than they do, it's just good business?
Of course, it sucks to be stuck with a monopoly supplier.
Some Eastern European countries have amazing national fibre infrastructures, but their phone systems were so bad they really had to start from scratch and thus leapfrogged nations like ours.
I've always thought Twitter is mostly pointless. It's generally been a write-only medium, with a few exceptions of some people that others find interesting.
There's nothing on Twitter that doesn't exist on dozens of other online services.
The fact they've never been able to make it a commercial success, and nobody wants to buy them, hasn't surprised me in any way.
That said, Twitter has some pretty clever tech to handle the volume of tweets
Here be K/Comodo dragons!
If I were an ISP, I'd rather have a small share in the huge btopenreach and easy fair access to their network than try and build my own.
Re: We soon won't need them
We will have jobs. once all the european mainlanders go home, there will be plenty of unskilled farm jobs available, restaurant staff, cleaners and other manual labouring jobs.
It will become economical to grow food in the UK again because of the week pound hence more farm jobs.
Fuel will go up, as it's priced in dollars.
The good thing is we'll all get fitter and healthier from working outside, or because we'll be walking or cycling more. And being poorer, we'll be eating less, which is good for us
I don't see why importing the work of remote labourers shouldn't incur the same import duty as physical goods. We pay VAT/tax on insurance and eBooks and digital music.
Just as we have switched from importing physical goods for music and video to digital, and other services which incur VAT, so companies who outsource workers to other countries and then operate their business remotely should incur import duty on that imported work.
Re: "a 32-bit DAC, part of a burgeoning partnership with Bang & Olufsen"
you don't need better than 16 bit DACs for playback, provided you have a variable gain headphone/speaker amp on the output so as to maintain the noise floor.
anybody who claims to hear the difference between a 24 bit DAC vs a 16 bit DAC, when fed through the same analogue amp and speakers is either a liar or an alien.
El Reg partially fixed it.. correcting aybe to Maybe, but still left the trailing M.
Re: Independents such as Entanet aren't much good either anymore, bottlenecks everywhere.
I'm with Zen. That doesn't happen to me.
I think ISPs should only be able to charge you the actually achieved line speed, not the "up to" speed. They can recover the costs from BT OpenReach for the quality of the line.
So if you have an "up to 80M" service and the line can only do 20, you pay only 25% of the normal rate, and the ISP gets a refund from BT on their costs of renting the line.
Re: For whom does OFCOM work?
I think the analogy of buying a Ferrari and complaining about the roads is a poor one, because the two aren't the same.
Perhaps a better one would be that of of buying a rail season ticket with a guaranteed seat on the non-stop express every morning, only to find the service is oversold so you don't get a seat or get bumped onto a later slower train would be better.
How about BT stop jacking up line rental and using the money to sell their broadband cheaply and pay for sports deals, and thus make their competitors less competitive and bolster their own services?
