$9B for only 5M users, no one is going to make that money back!
I hope its an 8 track!
Its just developers; being pressured to fix the problem rather than providing a solution is a way of life for developers, companies do not want to hear that I can patch in 1 day or fix for the future in 3 months, beancounters etc will always go for the 1 day patch. There is no longer a 5 year plan, or a 3 year one, hardly even a 1 year one, everyone is agile fixing what is in front of them right now!
If a third party that has an interest in getting a particular political party into office then they too can do advertising, this may not need to be tracked as gifts and payments to the party, so potential for lots of abuse of the system - as the Observer/Guardian article shows happened with Brexit targeted adverts. Not sure how this can be avoided or made illegal, we are all entitled to our voice, if I happen to have more money than someone else then I can force my voice to be heard in more places and more loudly.
Don't forget this is not just FB and twitter, all those tracking fake news articles that get linked from almost all websites as well as the news companies themselves are included by this type of activity, even having ad blockers and such like makes it difficult to get away from it.
There are plenty of apps that give you a terminal and the ability to 'run' a linux environment, try https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.termux, plenty more available, some require root and some do not. Not all linux tools are available, certainly not GUI ones, but some can then be run within Xvnc or similar, a reasonable smattering of command line tools are available, perl, python, vi etc. However there is limited access to storage, which does make some things more difficult.
Definitely worth a few hours of investigation/play
Is that a projection or do they know the future?
and computer type equipment
good luck with that!
Surely its apple?

Innovative energy tariffs Using the data collected on when and how households are using energy, suppliers can create more competitive time-of-use tariffs with cheaper prices for off-peak use.
We used to have this, it was called economy 7, worked great, cheap electric at night for washing machines and storage heaters etc
The other benefit is the end to estimated bills, never used to be a problem, if they got it wrong I would ring up and get it changed to an accurate read bill
If there is more real stuff, then there must be less of the unreal stuff then?
Surely she means costs us billions?
It would seem like it is anyway, they have a UK accessories page for it (in the article) as well as having a pre-order page http://shop.samsung.com/uk/galaxy-note7-black/.
Shame I don't have any spare cash
PIN number, its just PIN or do the printers have helpful LCD displays on them too?
I'm thinking that this solution is not targetted at you, but at all the others who have different requirements and abilities to solve them
Does not like a UK keyboard @ for starters, then tab ordering is not respected, if they cannot manage the basics, then I am not surprised that more complex sites do not work
One to watch but not use, for ages maybe
Though if you are wanting to use your phone for VR, then more pixels is a benefit. VR on the one plus range is blocky at best
how well electric cars manage driving down flooded roads, how deep water can I go through etc
“They’re at a point when they’re often outperforming the boys and somehow in their minds they go, ‘this isn’t for me’.”
So its the girls fault? Rather than teachers/parents suggesting that science and technology are not areas to be studied by girls?
may be easier than gravity waves
icon, cos it matches
For consumer experience, if I buy a £600 phone and then add on £400 of extra projector, camera etc and then find that in 2 years time they will not work with my next phone I will be a bit annoyed. Hence people are a bit wary of buying into this tech
That must exist, surely?
Maybe for a bluetooth or wifi connected chamber pot to analyse ones stools?
Surely for problem callers, they always have the carpet tape ready to hand.
And the carpet of course, and the bag of lime, shovel etc
for £4 is this device still relevant, sure it has a bit of bluetooth and some LEDs and is lower power, but is that enough to convince schoolkids that they should become software developers or electronic design types?
Surely the telcos want to get on board and properly give 100% area coverage rather than 95% people coverage
in google search google "data processing business" gives 19700 results
in bing search google "data processing business" gives 2.8 million results
There are many andoid forks, some are supported by manufacturers, who generally will not do it themselves due to the cost.
Cyanogenmod, Oxygen (from oneplus), AOSP etc are ones that can be easily found
They too cannot provider reverse paths to copies
Down-scaling a lossless image format, will lose information and the original cannot be rebuilt
The Readers Digest organisation is going to be in for a lot of trouble
Why would I get this, rather than a £4 raspberrypi zero plus a bit more when you factor in a SD card or get a standard arduino?
In many cases the power draw is not such a big issue, the ease of software development is.
Also falls into this category, free to use, though not free to get their code, yet, they suggest that at some point it will be properly open
https://telegram.org for those who cannot google
Really, you are better off skipping that part of the in-flight food
I thought pilots all wore 'cool' mirrored sunglasses anyway
Surely thats not a feature? This is in the realm of additional software to add to your system, not a feature of a the laptop itself.
Blueproximity works well on all my linux systems already
I used to write software for pharmacies, in the old days and this all ran along with the data on 5.25 inch floppies.
When asked to send in a copy of their disks we often got photocopies of the disks or a floppy disk stapled to a covering letter, obviously right through the disk itself, just to make sure! Other disks came in glued together with paint, glue and who knows what, also the backup disks that have never been used and so blank were sent in to be used for data recovery and disks stored next to their TVs or CRT screens.
USB drives are not as much fun.
Getting my coat cos its almost knocking off time
Could contain the plasma, no need for filaments. Would be hard to get the field into a nice cylinder though
Nearest thing to a light sabre icon
If back doors were somehow enabled to give the government access whose government would it be? Yours, mine, USA, UK, France, Germany, Russia, Egypt etc.
Obviously these would be shared between friendly governments but the friend of my friends government may not be my friend. For starters google, apple, microsoft etc would have to hand over all their keys to pretty much every government in the world.
The is no 'F' in team either, in most cases where people raise the 'I' comment
But we've switched it off again now.
We may share it with our friends in the NSA if they ask for it or maybe they already asked for it and this is how we collected it!
Potential for the conspiracy people to have a field day with this, though as ever human failures are the most likely cause
But then, if you buy one of the other pi's (or beagle bone etc) then you have to buy them then too.
You buy them when you buy your new desktop computer or monitor too, though often the price is hidden in the overall price of what you buy.
A list of people who should be onsite fixing the issues. Some of the workers sure, not all of them and certainly none of the management getting in the way asking is it fixed yet!
Had this happen a few years back, massive fire took out most of the factory, the recovery crew was 30 odd of our 250+ staff, none of the directors were allowed on site as it was essential staff only and they would not be contributing to the actual recovery actions.
Flame icon, cos thats what happened
IT is becoming irrelevant as the workers increasingly rely on their own 'devices' and bring cloud services with them.
Business units specify and implement moves to cloud systems without involving IT, "who just get in the way and slow things down".
Sales gets Sales force, legal, HR, operations, finance all go to SAP, often as separate teams.
Developers code and deploy against AWS as IT cannot provide stable systems.
Legacy kit was virtualised and moved into the DC or a cloud provider years ago as IT could not
support the equipment.
End users all know their OS of choice and the applications they need to do their jobs, IT no longer
need to help out with Excel etc, the users are more expert nowadays.
IT may have to help out with HD swap outs and windows re-installs but thats getting to be the limit
of their involvement. Senior staff expense new high-end laptop purchases, IT only get
to specify laptops/desktops for low end staff, though often the finance team has the account
with a preferred supplier and just orders more of the same with hardly a thought about required use.
Phone systems are becoming virtualised and call routed to mobiles, no need for managing a phone switch and patching.
IT only need to provide network pipes/wifi, access to printers, service account creation (office365 etc).
The article really should be suggesting - Junk your IT job, before the company junks you!
The year of code will be over and another opportunity missed
Need to create a twilio script to do this!
Been in common parlance for many years, grexit for months and will be out of favour by next year!
For the new supplier to bid against? Meaning that its almost impossible to change
just rented for the period you need them and can fill up, get repaired etc when not being used.
Extends the Uber model a bit more, big companies will own cars - garages and the like but normal people less so, why bother it sits outside the house or office for 22 hours of the day
Pairs my computer and phone, means I do not need to wear a stupid bracelet and run windows
Its 4 fast cores and 4 slow ones, check out the Big.Little ARM architecture for the reasoning
Must have taken you ages, refrains from adding to the cow related puns
I know its a bit radical but that could also work
much like a password
yes yes people will use the name of their dog/cat/pet thing and they will be easy to guess but I guess some combinations will be more popular than others anyway
