There are other AI natural language processing approaches that are not based on machine learning type pattern matching. I am much taken with
It's still arguable if the program understands anything. But the deeper we dig into "intelligence" the more that seems to be so for human, IMO.

I suspect more and more people do really expect just that. I certainly do. And especially for complex ones (i.e expensive ones) like scanners or printers with very specific functions. An OS choice doesn't give the manufacturer a licence to determine what hardware you should choose. The ever onward strategy of the OS companies is a business choice, they want to generate more revenue. It's worked well for them; I see no problem with requiring some of that revenue to be dedicated to maintaining functionality.
Keeping security patches entirely separate from feature patches might be a good start.
It's the "Danger:savage primitive lifeforms in stellar system" beacon, placed, as per convention, on the poles of rotation of the largest planet in the stellar system.
Generally when the life forms figure out how to turn it off, they are advanced enough to not want to argue with the lifeforms that turned it on a long time ago.
Can we nominate presidents for assassination ?
There's a really big swimming pool visible on Google Earth, that might be retractable, about 200 klicks south at MAr-al-lago club on the coast in West.
It's a 100 miles I think. There might be one spot somewhere in the US that is that far away from all airports.
When and if functions that are offloaded to the cloud, such as voice processing and image processing, are handled entirely in the local device, I will become more interested in using said features. Privacy is a major selling point for me!
When I had a student job building radio Telescopes for the Physic Department of the University of Tasmania in the 60s, I remember being told about whistler research and listening to sounds just like this, particularly the second recording. I don't think it is a new research topic, although the satellites weren't available then...
I seem to remember that the UK imposed the same ban, following the US precedent. I've heard nothing about it since. Is it still in force?
.. when the US does away with net neutrality?
will my access to US sites from Europe be affected (well sure) and how ?
Unisys is incorporated there. As is Dell. I stopped lookign after those 2.
Could it be that the servers are out of reach of any regulator or other authority , that makes this an attractive proposition for some?
Trump isn't in that top 1% of the 1%.
Not yet he isn't. Give him some time
I know a few horse owners who spend a lot of time shovelling horse shit in paddocks. Seems like another opportunity for these developers
So the Trump administration leaks a possible new security protocol and what happens? It dominates the news and deflects attention from other newsworthy issues, such as Trumps FBI director and his NSA head dissing him in a public, televised forum. And revealing he may have had links to Russia during his campaign and that he was lying wrt being wiretapped by Obama. And his candidate for the supremes is in front of the Senate committee just now.
I commend the description of the "goat and the cow" in https://extranewsfeed.com/when-villains-arent-super-f5646d81db6#.zdmm06qtq
It's the dilemma faced by all adults trying to deal with an undisciplined, truculent toddler, real conversation is just impossible. Only 46 more months to go .....
You'd need way more than 45V to reanimate a lowland paca.
But, a sustained 45V might cook one nicely in short order.
That will be a self correcting problem. Expect Canadian and Mexican hubs to become popular.

You forgot to add... "and make Europe pay for it!".
It's on youtube
the actual drop starts at about 19 mins.
Upvoted as thanks for that link. It is pretty well spot-on in my experience (40+ years).
Dr Who would look daft dressed like that. Er, even more daft!
Reminds me of Cyril Kornbluths "marching Morons"
Wonder story that appeals to all BOFHs and ananbes
Your mortgage is £35 a month??
It's for a phonebox
To anyone who has endured as an employee of a large corporation, it's obvious why El Reg is blacklisted, at some point a senior manager took offence at something on the website and The Register was a added to the "Do not revive" list. That worthy has probably moved on, been disgraced or died, but the listing remains. Large corporations are not flexible in this matter. Executive dignity must be preserved at all costs, even at the risk of being pompous.
Won't that be illegal after Brexit?
.... change shape and colour every new software release
.... have controls that were invisible unless you swiped left (with 2 or 3 fingers) on the steering wheel (or left , or something)
... not have a speedometer as it would clutter the user interface
.... an entertainment centre that only played music available on iTunes
... have a unique charging plug
Perhaps music isn't as subversive :-)
Great website, thanks for the link.
The flying wing thing cruising at 90,000 feet is way cool. But the laser connection from the ground station to the plane would seem to be dodgier. I can't imagine that airline pilots will be too keen on them; they will need significant power to be detectable at 90K - more I suspect than the lasers that pen laser waving idiots around airports are using. And then there's the weather ...
MacOS, the original on from the 80s, was implemented largely in Pascal, and the reference docs were all in Pascal form. The best IDE and compiler I ever worked on , Think Pascal, was a brilliant piece of UI work, unmatched in IDEs to this day I think.
Apple then discovered C and seemed to think it was superior, but I didn't see much evidence of that at the time.
I bought 2, one for a friend with extreme hand problems and one for me to maybe extend its capabilities for the friend, if it worked out. It's slightly irritating, it kept wanting me to re-sync my gestures. My friend had problems using ti also. In the end its a bit too limite. It does work to pause videos from the lounge though.
Myo didn't live up to the potential as optimistically predicted by its Kickstarter campaign. I've not had a great run with Kickstarter projects, at least this one delivered.
It would be rational to preserve the investment made to put all this expensive junk in place, by collecting the non functional bits into a junkyard, inside a big net in the back yard of the ISS. Maybe you'd need separate junkyards for each space power..
Interesting side effect of the misconception you describe, research into alternatives
I guess this is an opportunity for the Feds to control iron distribution too.
