I can recommend the Yammy amp
I have the older '671 model but it's a capable beast with 6 HDMI inputs plus analogue and composite and stuff. Running mine with Pioneer 5.1 surround speakers (it'll do 7.1, I think) and an active sub and it's a tip-top unit still for maybe 4 or so years old and it still receives firmware updates from Yammy, too.
Re: More words
Gesticulation / Gesticulate
Banks jobs are alive and well
Though quite why anyone would physically try to rob a bank these days is a mystery.
However, that didn't stop some enterprising numpty from trying it locally recently. He got nicked when he tried it a second time on the same chain of banks in a different local area.
Still it's potentially easier to defend against cybercrime than three big guys with baseball bats, for El Reggers, at least, maybe.

But at least they INVENTED the process themselves, instead of buying someone else's works to use as a money stick to beat other real innovators with

This is far cheaper...
That given the RF terrorgasm they're putting about and the long-since availability of mods for existing routers, that they'd have some fecking statistics to back up this FUD by now, wouldn't you.
That they've produced no 'unauthorised spectrum wibbly wobbly interference' figures to accompany their blatherings kinda suggests it's not happening or not happening on any scale that's even worth investigating.

Has worked for XBOX/Playstation for years. Loss-making product is a well-known business strategy that's got nothing to do with the here & now. It's to do with the there & then possibly decades down the line.
Re: Ferrari, Bugatti, etc.
Not much point taking on the likes of BMW/Audi/etc when your answer to their £35k car is £47k (30%) more expensive for the same or less. Not in that market, no sir.

Re: Let's make a deal!
I suspect the existing arrangement is working so BO will take the opportunity to look a little less rubbish by saying he won't mandate it with that 'conversation' running along the presumably well-established lines of 'You know this security of yours, OH! What a delightful photo on your desk, are they YOUR children..?'
(Or the alternative of 'Those two hookers you used whilst on that trip to Seattle. Yeah,we have the footage')

Re: Common Lego !!
I'm horrified by the racist overtones in this, to be honest.
That all white people should be stereotyped as buccaneering, murderous thieves and looters is, frankly, monstrously offensive.
Re: Didn't work for me :(
I have my phone mount in the car arranged to video every journey I make (well when the phone's in it, it's not a camera itself, before someone points that out).
Not cos of plod but I am a bit fed up of other people driving into me over the last few years and then lying on their claim response. Spose I could turn GPS on in the app though no idea how admissible it may be in court to challenge a spurious/speculative speeding charge. Anyone ?

However, any suspension of Safe Harbour would add a bit more defeat to the data extradition now, surely?
Dear Downvoter, that is we call a 'wry comment'. It is not meant to be taken as a factual statement of opinion.

Re: Pritzkers statement
'Course she's heard of it, that statement was likely more for US public/media than the EU public cos we're all (medi)evil over here and deliberately attacking US interests, almost (but not quite) like terrorists.
Noam Chomsky had noted three or four categories of government labels for states like 'ally', 'friendly', 'cooperative' and 'rogue' which roughly translates to 'our bitch', 'can be relied upon with correct incentives', 'asks too many questions', 'bomb them'.
We're (EU, not the pathetic UK gov't) not quite rogue (yet).

That's OK, we've been deeply disappointed with the USA for decades.

Re: Good reason not to deal with Apple
Being 'a bit technical' I get, from time to time, people saying 'How do I get my phone/tablet/etc to do that, I saw it on a mate's phone/tablet/etc'.
Sometimes they saw something on an Android and they want to do the same thing on an iThing, something it may well be capable of.
Being, however, of a curmudgeonly disposition I just say 'It's an Apple device. No clue'. Sometimes, even if I know how...

Having Googled for these two women I think I know where the Arnie got the inspiration for the 'creepy grin' in Terminator Genisys.
Maybe I'll even post that on their site under their name for whichever bimbo it is that looks like the joker.
Re: Demoted it would seem and they expect him to be Mr. Cheerful?
Presumably if he were able to get a better job then he would. If you don't like the job you're in get another one unless you're so unemployable in which case be thankful that someone will actually pay you.
Perhaps he feels Apple or Intel should be kicking his door down to employ him and 'more fool them' if they haven't got in touch yet, because he's above looking for a new job and feels he should somehow be headhunted. Despite being about to have no job and no prospects cos he'll have a 'special' reference to give to prospective new employers, saying 'His name is xx and he worked here from yy to zz'.
If it gets too 'interesting' Gillette will buy it and bury it.

More like just putting href="sms:0123456789" into an A tag - doesn't work on Android, they don't allow the number to be pre-filled if I remember correctly from trying this (legitimately) a couple of years ago.

As is the repeat connection timeout thingy which I don't remember the syntax for off the top of my head... something to do iptables marking new connections I think

Re: "The facts and the law don't matter, it seems."
If a monkey can hold (C) then presumably it can be prosecuted for unauthorised access to a computing device (the digital camera) or the misuse of computing equipment laws as it's gonna be easier to prove the camera should be treated as a computing device for sure.
Haul PETA in as co-conspirators / incitors.
In fact have the monkey testify that it wasn't attempt to plant a virus in an attempt of cyber-terrorism, then you get the terror laws in on the act.
Maybe subpoena the monkey?
See if any lawyer wants to claim to 'represent its interests'.
