The issue is money. Quel surprise.
Mind you the chap is running a commercial venture so he did kinda make a rod for his own back. Licensing fee would be the way forwards, though, all the same, you'd think... that way both parties make luvverly mmmmmmoney.
Sems to me, that as a digital camera can be substantially demonstrated to be a computing device that if 'the monkey tooks its own photo' and that it can be treated 'on an equal basis with a human under law, re copyright' then that naturally extends its rights to be arrested under the computer misuse act or maybe unauthorised access to a computing device. Citing PETA as a conspirator.
That's some 'pork' barrel ;o)
The difference is likely that Google is an American Co., therefore unable to commit sin
Does not blocking 3rd party cookies defeat this crap?
Though I totally agree you shouldn't have to know about it and have to go and do it.
The computer's bust.
Incidentally, my Liege, this is how we know the Earth to be banana-shaped
I'd not be surprised if somewhere things like paying for > £100 of shopping in Tesco (for example) with cash was 'logged' in some manner for subsequent 'retrieval'
It is now called Ecky Ecky Ecky Fhtagn ....
Pint to whomever can spell the last 'word' of that. Pint to me for getting a Cthulu reference into it.
Hang on... Leicester, of similar geographical De-Montfort-ness as the Snow White & Seven Friends ?
No coincidence, surely?
it's more the converse of that ...
If he lived in the US he'd probably just go to Walmart.
At last, an El Reg Story NOT about *Trouser* Snakes
Now being a Brit I accept that I don't have an all-encompassing knowledge of firearms, we don't seem to need them as much over here but this doesn't seem to work...
magazine, semi-automatic, revolver
Magazine I can settle with (thought that was a 'cylinder') but are revolvers semi-auto? I thought that referred to how the next round was chambered from the firing of the previous one?
Well it certainly seems to work with money for American
Impressive is charging $150 (~100 quid) for 96GB flash when a 128GB USB3 stick is 21 quid.
Not impressive is a horrific colour choice of shiny, shiny-shiny and 'monochrome beige'. Presumably informed by how spangly it looks on camera during product placement shots.
Alexander the Great...
Ahhh Time Bandits
Which by definition would surely be a disproportionate sentence?
Presumably that's OK though if the Law is doing it.
Fhtagn Fhtagn, etc
I bet Fujitsu, Honda, Samsung, etc would happily sponsor if a non-yank were needed.
Wouldn't it be a lot cheaper to install VLC or Transcode ???
Obviously missed something here unless these guys can do something ultra special the above can't...?
Paper clip and/or a screwdriver
YouTube internet access are still going to be able to see the rude words filth
Pah. It's probably pkzip.
Might hang onto the perfectly trusty Sammy S4 for another iteration yet, Sammy having failed to wow me with S5 or S6, I was looking forward to the Z5 specs. Bit of an anti climax but battery life is appealing assuming it's comparative to other 1-day battery life claims for other/earlier devices, hence double.
Does that mean if we don't know who Alan Cox is we shouldn't use (say) filesystems or maybe linux?
I thought a large number of US Co's GAVE China their IP to ... errr.. build it for them nice n cheap.
Many of the tech bigwigs doing the heavy thinking at places like MIT also seem to have mostly Asian or 'Eastern Bloc' names, too, on the published papers...
Not to mention that a false flag op on the internet is a (relatively) simple thing to carry out if you have gear hacked in the right locations. I'm sure everyone trusts the USA, though. At least, as much as they trust China, anyway.
One of the debunks proving we visited the moon being that the astronauts came back with lunar rock that's identical to rock found on earth. Awesome.
Neil Armstrong's face is another debunk bullet-point, lol.
Can't work out if the huff is secretly working FOR conspiracists or not.... there's some quality drivel in that post, good for a giggle.
Mind you, weren't lasers 'guessed at' not so long ago ?
They're pretty good at this guessing game, has to be said.
That's changed, too, by the look of it...
Will take you to what you get when you enter an email addy, plonk any email addy you like on the end there, as far as I can tell. Not received anything in my inbox yet so perhaps the 'Clear yes/no' is already long gone in favour of hoovering emails up.
Aren't there various laws about that carrying some stiff jail time, especially when it results in deaths?
If I were impact team then I'd really be hoping I could walk the untraceable pro-haxx0r walk as well as talk the guff right about now.
I assume you don't have any kids. Whilst I agree completely with your point, by 8 months you can clearly see a lot of human cognitive behaviour in your offspring plus personality. Language is already beginning to form, albeit at a rudimentary Neanderthal-type grunt for bikkies, shout for not-pleased, gurgle for pleasure kind of way.
I'd actually say 2 months absolute maximum, based on experience, possibly even from 8 months in utero although you'd not be having meaningful (in your sense) communication with a human that small.
And not paying out 1/2BN USD would surely help those profits a little
Well Martin Budden seems to have solved that... take a planet/body/thing which has amino acids on it. Hammer it with some meteors/asteroids and you get peptides. leave it a while to develop into more life-y stuff then thwack it with a very big asteroid, spraying some of that stuff off and into space.
Repeat over billions of years and million-to-one chances happen in their thousands. Life only needs a few hundred million years to go from soup to people.
Hardly beyond imagination.
Oh dear oh dear.
I just scan-read that as Golden Vagina.
Time for a little lie-down perhaps.
Card co's will let you store a unique token which is associated with a card within the Card Co's sytems so you have not personal card data to hold. That's one way of potentially rebilling without having the card details.
Depends on what it is...
Ebay, Dabs, misco, RS, Wickes, locally if practical
Or perhaps perpetuate it...
Largely an oxymoron, surely? Duty to the shareholders n all that
Does mean a fellow employee, though, regardless of your day-to-day or social interaction with them. Even the CEO is 'a colleague' though generally the work relation would be taken to be somewhat closer than that, say between goods-in team and the top brass
Most of the papers I've seen reported by El Reg that emanate from, say, MIT have 'immigrant' surnames on all that excellent work which is, presumably, advancing US interests.... Not that they're not necessarily x-generation of such but they ain't come from 'round here, so to speak.
Merely an observation. Cake / Eating conflicts?
As per title
But it's a bit of a last resort thing. Better on a tablet but you're still constantly zooming to read stuff, etc
I like(d) MS's own RDp client until the latest update just slings out something like Error 0x4 and fails to connect to the Win7 Vbox headless I have running on the (Ubuntu) server at home... so switched to Afree RDP (from memory).
Might well try Parallels, though
"Cultist" or "Fanatic", probably
