14 sailors die aboard Russian cable spy, er, ocean research nuke sub after fire breaks out


"Earlier today America's Vice President Mike Pence cancelled a scheduled trip to return to Washington, DC, but so far there has been no confirmation that the move was in response to the Losharik disaster"

I don't understand the link here

$30/month email upstart Superhuman brought low with a blast of privacy Kryptonite


Sales droids love this kind of service, despite the fact that the mailing lists they buy almost always contain a few honeytrap addresses and so get us on various SBLs

"I sent 50,000 emails this week and I have 30 read receipts to show they have been read - that's worth at least XXXXX $£"

Hot desk hell: Staff spend two weeks a year looking for seats in open-plan offices


"They found conversations between staff fell by 70 per cent when they moved to an open plan space, while emails increased dramatically."

Open Plan does not equal hotdesking. I have never worked in anything but an open plan office and find that sometimes the numerous conversations can be very distracting.

Open plan also allows you to see if someone is actually at their desk so you can go and speak to them, not like the cubicle farms the yanks seem to love so much.

Re: Not helping themselves

The only reason I download movies is so I can have a digital copy of a DVD I already own so I can watch it from various devices around the house should I wish to.

Yes I still keep all of my DVDs too as SWMBO likes to be able to just "put a DVD on" as opposed to pressing a few buttons on the remote.
