I moved to Apple for the SE, long time Android user but the android alternatives back at the time were very limited in number due to the trend of phones getting bigger.
I'm intending to return to Android in a year or so but the iPhone SE has been superb for me personally, just a shame it runs IOS.
Search for a USP, which unfortunately for apple means innovating, something they have never been that great at. Samsung and co though.. well they love having a go with random stuff and typically make a better job of it.
This was an unwanted addition and Apple know it, but they can't possibly admit it.
What do you do with people out of area who aren't on the hospital books but have been referred to them from other hospitals because they don't have the facilities locally to treat them? This is incredibly common and one of the reasons the NHS has national systems.
You're idea looks great on paper right up until you actually know something about how the NHS works. There are centres of excellence around the country who specialise in specific types of treatment. You'll even see patients referred cross-border if there's a need into NHS Scotland and NHS Wales.
without AMD, NVidia would chuck out even less optimised cards/drivers each year. They need the competition to keep them pushing as lethargically as they are.
If AMD folded, you'd have one major supplier of gaming cards and the tech would barely move in the next 10 years except to make them cheaper to manufacture (without passing on the savings).
Waitrose near my work has spaces with lines, but the lines are basically different colour monoblock which changes to the same colour as the rest when it rains. So being in the UK this means for the next 9 months or so it'll be a demolition derby in there, happens every year.
The guy who built it was on the radio this morning. Apparently he gets <700Kb download but companies are busy running a fibre cable down the middle of the village but not allowing anyone to tap into it.
I'm sure many of us have been in this situation, makes you wonder if the rural broadband millions companies have been getting for years are just being used to run the big cables through rural settings to urban centres with zero benefit to those who's roads are dug up along the way.
You mean the company who deployed it to the location and which conventiently goes bust shortly before the clean up is due to start?
If we're using technology like this companies should pay a levy for clean up etc which is then refunded with interest IF the money isn't used to clean up their mess once the site closes.
You'd end up jailing innocent people.
We need out financial regulators to have tie-in powers with the police to enable seizing of company assets/e-mail servers and accounts quickly, then using that along with paperwork to identify the guilty parties. Not simply jailing people because of their post within a company.
In every company there are good and bad people, we need to ensure the good ones remain to change company culture.
Throughout history mankind has applied technology in unexpected ways, advancements don't always have an immediate and obvious application.
Look at the guy who created suction pads or the chap who created the process for moulding shapes from synthetic rubber. Voila! the suction dildo.
A masterpiece of engineering.
As an avid gamer I'd say it's dependent on the game. Games which stream in content to RAM as you play such as Star Citizen will benefit from this as it generates smoother gameplay. Those which typically front load like Fallout 4, GTA V etc won't.
It's more complicated than yes/no though as much of this is dependent on how much RAM the computer has, less RAM, you'll likely benefit more from an SSD than otherwise.
"With Unmetered Mitigation, we’re breaking the industry’s practice of surge pricing when someone comes under attack. It was an easy decision for us because it’s the right thing to do."
In other words, they are big enough now to offer it when competition may be unable to and they've milked the metered mitigation cow to death.
Were? How recent was this?
Absolutely attacks can be minimised, but that goes back to my initial point about how ICT can deal with it when it happens. I could lock down my own infrastructure far tighter than I have but that requires approval to do it and will require some money to be spent, money that many councils etc don't have to spare.
Any organisation can be hit by ransomware, it's how quickly and effectively they deal with it that shows the underlying skills and understanding their own IT department have of the tech they are using IMHO.
For this to drag on for weeks makes me think they're reliant on outsourced support in some way either for infrastructure or backups.
"not having completed the 10 steps"..
That doesn't mean they wouldn't comply with them if they did. Does national infrastructure need to comply with every standard and recommendation going even when that would literally be impossible as many contracted each other in minor or major ways?
You need to look at this from the SNPs perspective. Rural farmers are far more likely to vote tory or lib dem than SNP. Stir it up against the current evil-tory government is a good thing for the SNP.
It's win-win because if the tories got ahead and tell BT to do it the SNP can say the tories are making a monopoly on the poor disadvantaged farmers, whilst themselves doing nothing to help.
Even with Rizen you'll see better performance in games but it particularly shines when streaming or recording too. Having more cores just generally keeps things a lot smoother.
The problem I increasingly have with Intel isn't core, it's locking down functionality on boards artificially behind paywalls purely to market them as different models. That's why my next CPU will be AMD, right now I've got an i7-6700K which is no slouch for video processing but there's little reason to head back to Intel and pay the premium.
However as we don't know where the problem is, either with Marcus or the authorities I'm minded to side with him, innocent until proven guilty and the narrative we're getting from the authorities doesn't make a huge amount of sense for anyone in the infosec world.
It's almost as if they are simply squeezing him for info for other cases, put pressure on him, prevent him leaving the country and see if he'll squeal on any contacts he has.
"Which turns out to be not much of an impediment. In practically every application which offers both a point and click as well as a keyboard input (like AutoCAD, for example),"
Ex-draughtsman here, worked on DOS versions of AutoCAD all the way to Windows 95! Keyboard input was the way to go, mouse in right hand, left hand mashing various keys to manipulate what I was drawing at the time.
Yes there were GUIs especially in 95, but they were almost always slower unless buttons linked to macros we'd setup for snapping at pre-set distances etc. At all other times typing singular keys was quicker as the mouse pointer could remain on target.
EU standard is 230v plus or minus 20v, with mainland Europe being 220 plus or minus 10v and the UK sitting at 240 plus or minus 10v. The EU standard is written so that it just gives the range used in such a way that any electronics kit sold to an EU customer should be safe anywhere in Europe
^^ UK voltage has been 230V plus or minus 10% for years.
I waited 2 years to grab a domain I'd been wanting for longer than that. When it changed ownership and wasn't being used I thought it was just a matter of time.
If you want to keep them, renew them. If you spend too much time shopping around someone like me may well have been waiting.
"All your data is protected and backed up in our military grade encrypted UK based data centres"
Are they actually owned by the company? Otherwise this simply isn't true. More likely this would be appropriate: "All your data is protected and backed up in the military grade encrypted UK based data centres which we rent rack space in."
Apparently it's great for customers because:
1. You don't need to physically touch the device to login and check balances etc.
2. It's more secure than finger prints.
3. It's just jolly bloody great.
OK well let's see.
1. You can login accidentally just by f*cking looking at it.
2. You still need to physically access the device which is in your f*cking hand to do anything in the app.
3. It can be bypassed using a photograph and a contact lens and as camera get better..
This is how healthcare tends to handle clinicians. Sadly it doesn't extend beyond that so we end up with the best staff going into management and making an **** of it. Many of the dreaded NHS "Middle managers" I know were fantastic in their fields and the only option to progress was to move out of it into managing the staff working in that field.
Then they themselves can no longer contribute anywhere near as much.
But at least it gives more exposure to Linux. I know two of my friends kids will be all over this as it gives them a way to tinker with Linux more readily without annoying their windows obsessed dads until they get their own PCs. Both currently use live linux CDs to mess about.
