"a good pr0n investigation"
Is that like an in-depth analysis?
I read (at TechTales I believe it was) a story about a company with a 2+2 naming pattern in which the two first letter from the last name would be first, so John Doe would have email@example.com. Alan Anderton was not amused.
If you have read the Stephen King book "Under the dome" you know whom I speak of.
Google translate (the app) can translate the text on those buttons from a photo of my screen showing the picture in the article.
Wouldn't that be an obvious solution to a tech reporter; to use an automated translation service?
...she was off her dried frog pills.
Mine's the one with the Terry Pratchett book in the pocket
Obviously it has to be an embedded system, with an ARM Cortex-M type of processor.
You know, with a "Hard fault handler".
Looks within pétanque regulations (70.5 - 80 mm) to me.
No, an HePoo cam
I assume this box must be placed near the TV, with an unobstructed view of as much of the living quarters as possible.
lens remote eye must be kept clean!
Icon for obvious reasons...
From Electrek (El Reg's source):
"Apparently, the problem wasn’t due to a lack of knowledge on how to handle a crashed electric vehicle, but because of the state of the wreckage. Ronald Boer, a spokesman for the firefighters, said:
“If the car was on four wheels, the fire brigade normally has no difficulty to turn off the batteries. However, this car is completely destroyed, hampering the recovery. In this situation, you never know what can happen.”"
I suspect milk floats don't go off country lanes at what from the pictures looks like "adventurous" speeds...
It is somewhat lost in translation, but what is meant is if anyone was around and was offended by it rather than appreciative.
In other words, Google translate made a ham of it...
...the bees thought it was an F/A-18 Hornet?
Icon for obvious reasons ->
There is always someone on the customer side who "needs" to be able to connect to the SCADA remotely and view status. Quite often people who think security is limited to a high fence and not telling anyone that the code on the electronic lock is 1234...
" the TR0UB4DOUR range"
I think I know what you mean, but could you explain that expression? I feel like there is a joke I am missing out on.
But only if you add it to a commercial database, if you read the verdict.
...so I'll just get my coat
...for scale, obviously.
"The German state attorney's office ... had received complaints from people who had raised the issue anonymously"
One call from Munich and one from Stuttgart..?
Same thing across the Sound (i.e. southern Sweden) since 9 or 10 this morning.
Search The Register for nominative determinism for more examples.
Is it just me, or does it sound like the (anonymous!) journalist intended to send this to his or her partner, and accidentally published instead?
To us, at my company at least, a thermostat is something which has two states; on or off (i.e. "not warm enough" or "warm enough" if it is set up for heating).
Controllers are our devices which have a regulator (of PID type) for calculating a suitable output, proportional to the difference between set point and actual value.
That is why I made the distinction, even if everyday people don't.
They surely do.
I work for a company in the building automation industry, and we have such products.
You would simply set the Set Point to 22.5 degrees and the dead band to 2.5 degrees (although that is an unusually large dead band).
This is of course not a thermostat, but a room (or zone) controller.
...the eco-friendly version, Soylent Green!
No beating around the bush there...
...what did the fox say?
Did you just make a Tom Lehrer reference there?
I am sure there are a number of tricky situations that prevent a really self driving car for quite some time.
The first one to spring to my mind is the north of Sweden (and neighbours of course) during winter, where the entire road and the road banks are white except for the occasional 1.5m tall, 350kg moose lurking by the side of the road waiting for a chance to jump in front of your car and subsequently through your wind screen.

It might be good to point out that Melodifestivalen is the Swedish "qualification/election" for ESC.
As far as I can tell the app was commissioned by SVT (Sweden's equivalent of BBC) and Christel Tholse Willers works for SVT, not ESC.
"För att avskräcka de andra" if you want to discourage or "För att uppmuntra de andra" if you want to encourage.
It should be noted that there is a difference of opinion between the young man and the city council whether he actually cooperated when the breach and malware was discovered.
Oh, and it should be "kronor", not "kroner" for the plural of the currency.
The Nespresso pods are recycled as metal containers.
Once your country has a functioning recycling system, it is no hassle at all.
Living in an apartment building in Sweden, I just take the Nespresso pods and other metal containers out to a small recycling house next to the house where I live and put them in a bin for metal. The plastic, newspapers, cardboard, glass and food leftovers all have separate bins.
I like how you think!
Also, since the statistics are gathered by the European Commission, there is no data for Norway (or any other non-EU country).
I -think- this is the press release which this article is about, if any body wants to dive deeper into the charts:
Internet of Toys
Is that a Spoonerism?
-The name of the political science professor is Ulf Bjereld.
-The translation of @framtidsminist would be "future minist", misspelled on purpose I suspect.
-The ending qoute is incorrect; "Det är inte konstigt eller ovanligt att finnas i sociala medier. Det är det omvända, att inte finnas där, som börjar bli konstigt" becomes " It is not strange or unusual to be in social media. It is the opposite, not being there, which is becoming strange."
...the (NSA) director's cut!
If the photo was taken in Indonesia, why isn't it a question about what Indonesian law says?
And from there, international copyright treaties?
Morpheus, is that you?
And why are these suited gentlemen approaching my cubicle wearing sunglasses indoors?
Would this make the tinfoil hat brigade reconsider their choice of head wear?
"The Russians managed to get a grip of Foton-M4 on Saturday, after they lost control on 19 June."
According to thrustworthy [sic] sources (Wikipedia, HuffPost etc.) it was launched on 19 July
...and it's not even pub o'clock yet!
I suggest also considering the use of the compiler as a search function when you do a change in an API (in a project which isn't too large).
I.e. if you change the number of arguments to a function, instead of grep'ing for the calls to the function, you compile and then go to the places the compiler has pointed out errors.
No 3D-printed model?
Swedish Spotscale has a similar idea:

Out of professional courtesy.
Same reason why sharks don't attack lawyers.
