What you want is the Intranet of thingsTM
If it was a KitKat wrapper, it would be obvious, as you have to rub it until the writing on the chocolate shows through, then slice between the bars with your thumbnail. If that isn't the way you open it, then a drug related investigation is entirely warranted!
If you are going to keep cat litter in your car, then make sure it contains some evidence of cat usage.
You wont have to worry about your windows fogging up, as you'll need them down to avoid the aroma.
Its more a question of replacing 4K full colour TV with 4K full colour TV with seriously reduced reception and usability cos 'new is better even if it really isn't'No its more like going from 4K back to SD, most of the DAB channels are mono rather than stereo and at bit rates that give audio quality up there with telephone hold music.
It wasn't until Freeview HD arrived that I got a better digital pictures than with a good analogue signal. The artifact riddled Freeview SD was awful even before they reduced the bit rate to fit in all the shopping and +1 channels. Maybe the difference between DAB and DAB+ would be the same leap as Freeview SD to HD, but as it isn't happening in the UK, leave FM the hell alone.
I think I'll be suing Enterprise for a chunk of that £400,000 to compensate me for all the cold calls I've received since I used their company.
"I want an *intranet* of things"
Couldn't have put it better myself.
IOT shouldn't mean send data to the cloud.
The real Achilles heel continues to be the Intel Management Engine embedded in all of it's chips. No one knows what it is doing, so you can't trust any aspect of the chip.
FFS, get a clue!
That's all I can say.
The physical security of the meter is strong,No it isn't, it sits in a box on the outside of my house which can be opened by anyone with a key from a poundshop.
The specification will include a range of compute and storage options, such as Intel Kaby Lake CPUs, Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics, 32GB of DRAM, a 4K touch display optionYes, yes, yes, hell yes...
and Windows 10,...no thanks.
I hated the Walt Disney UI of XP,Disney would be less infantile, XP is Telly Tubby land, and no mistake.
It wasn't until I followed the links in the obit did I realise that so much of what I love about El Reg was down to one man. A very sad loss to us all, and especially his wife and young family.
Just make sure you replace Firefox with Chromium on older systems with less than 4GB of memory, then you'll really see what it can do.
...a working quantum computer capable of cracking conventional cryptography, that is.
In the mean time I'll spend the time worrying about the myriad of crypto implementation weaknesses, that don't need magic quantum fairy dust dust to exploit.
I've also ditched Firefox on my systems. The performance of the last couple of versions has dropped off a cliff on my more modest and low memory systems which used to be ok, such as an old 2GB Atom netbook running Linux Mint and the 1GB Raspberry Pi 2's and 3's, but strangely also the company 4GB i5 laptop when using a VPN.
The performance on my 4GB i3 and 8GB i7 laptops is acceptable, but what finished it off for me is Firefox's failure to play BBC News video clips, unless you refresh the page a few times until it stops being a black rectangle.
Chromium's performance on all those systems is far superior, and BBC News clips play straight off, so its bye bye Firefox, which is a shame as I prefer it's fonts and rendering on many sites.
Recall the 7th fleet - but not too far.
You obviously haven't looked at a server class ARM recently, if at all.
I'm looking forward to when I can run RISC OS (just about ARMv7) in a virtual machine on top of a tasty ARMv8 chip running 64bit Linux.
Algae is for fish, not people. Stop eating this shit and get some meat down yourself.
Now according to my roman numerals chart, X is 10, and P means Million... so XP = 10,000,000.
That's not how Roman numerals work. XP would be 10 before 1 million i.e. 999,990.
...and for backups holding non-repeatable research data to be found well and truly borked.
If it's not repeatable, it's not science.
It probably works out at almost a buck per active account.
@blotar: My wife is a teacher and agrees 100% with you. Life is very difficult if you are one of the few non-trots that haven't left in disgust at way the profession is going.
Deploy the 7th fleet.
The WMF is well on the way to becoming the FIFA of free encyclopaedias.
Not even Microsoft have tried to shake people down for C#.
Simon said he'd mention security later, but didn't in any meaningful way. From the brief sentence on not having to configure the router, than means it's using UPnP to open up god knows what ports both outgoing and incoming, leaving it and your home network wide open to exploitation. So no marks for it, and no marks for Simon leaving such a dangerous option turned on in his router.
The train could make a difference, but also as you are travelling in the opposite direction you may well be using a completely different set of masts due to the call hand off characteristics.
I'll wait for the Chinese copy, and loose a zero off the end.
RISC OS used the far superior and logical method of Enter/Return moving to the next text entry field, rather than prematurely closing the dialog without all the fields being entered. If you did want to exit immediately, that's what the OK button is for.
Oh and while we are here, the buttons in a dialog box didn't always have to be OK and Cancel, leading to ridiculous Windows dialogs with great big explanations "Press OK to do this action or Cancel to do the other action", Where as on RISC OS you named the buttons "Do This" and "Do The Other".
We aren't even anywhere near ISPs working to make the situation better, they
can't won't even stop making thinks worse. Look at Talk Talk, they've been told 76,000 of their customers Wifi passwords are circulating on the internet, and they won't even tell their customers to change them.
Before you can even think about what refueling connector to use, you first have to grab hold of the satellite, which is extremely difficult if it hasn't been designed with any handles, and has protruding solar panels and antenna. It was difficult enough for shuttle astronauts to do by hand, so a machine is going to have quite a challenge.
What's needed is the camera equivalent of OpenWRT for routers, allowing the vulnerable firmware to be replaced with something more secure - as long as the camera has re-programmable flash.
After this mornings disappointment at the cancellation of Broadcom's Vulcan, we can always dream that this could be in a Raspberry Pi 4.
Yes but it's no Vulcan. I tried it out the Pi3 with an 64 bit version of SLES at the weekend. On a small C++ test program I got a 40% performance increase compared to the 32 bit code. The python version was half the speed though.
Damn, I was looking forward to having one of those in the Raspberry Pi 4.
Going in to a joint venture with China is a worse prospect than even a joint venture with Microsoft. With Microsoft you can expect to have your balls cut off and handed back to you, with China expect them to be cut off and then find cheap copies being sold everywhere before you can wince.
Microsoft says buying LinkedIn will help to address the middle class discontent that saw Britain vote to leave the European Union and America vote to leave politics as we know it behind by electing Donald Trump.
I've got news for Microsoft, I addressed my middle class discontent by voting to leave Microsoft long before voting to leave the EU.
Yes people are fallible when in control of aircraft or other forms of transport, but so are the people who design the software for automated vehicles. The difference being that if there is a human in the loop they can try to use their human ingenuity to try to avert disaster, if the computer is in control and the situation hasn't been thought of during the design process, there is no hope.
The Hudson ditching was due to bird strikes taking out both engines.You might be thinking of the Colombian crash, if you are thinking at all.
That would explain the deja-vu.
You expect this sort of thing from no-name Chinese camera makers, but a high profile company like Sony? Well I suppose their rootkit team had to go somewhere.
The point of the fiery destruction is that the probe doesn't crash in to and contaminate one of the major moons. But with all this diving in and out of the rings with a non trivial chance of collision, are the boffins sure that a debris cloud couldn't form that could eventually reach the moons?
If you thought the Windows 8/10 interface was a step backwards, just wait until you have to wear a clunky headset to use it.
They aren't forced to be a tax cheat in the same way you aren't forced in to childish uppercase name calling.
I'm pretty sure my smart TV has nowhere near room for a data set of 100GB, what gives?
