They've achieved levitation
Forgive me if I'm underwhelmed. In Shanghai they do that every 15 minutes.
Snark aside, good for them, but it isn't really any kind of news.

this will presumably make life a little bit easier for for future attempts. The idea's not dead - it's still around in the form of clip-on hardware which, in my opinion, is the right way to do it. Google's approach was simply far to ambitious for far too little potential gain.
People have been arguing for decades that mines should be illegal for exactly these reasons. If anything adding AI makes an autonomous killing machine less problematic. Killbots probably wouldn't be blowing children's legs off decades after the war is over.
Literally in the middle of reading this I turned around to find my toaster flashing its three blue lights at me. It's never done that before, honestly. OK, more of a BLOD (blue leds of death) than a BSOD but if were going small I think that beats a watch.
It would be surreal if it wasn't so dystopian.
Of course Apple users buy apps. They need to show they can.
Google simply need to promote it as feature not a bug even if it goes against their corporate DNA.
They had to stage that 'failure' when they found out 46P/Wirtanen is in fact penis shaped.
I've heard her father was bad and mad as well.
the Ukrainians weren't in a position to nuke the shit out of Crimea and/or start WW3.
you clearly don't have enough.
None of these people deserve not to have windows on their machines.
El Reg linking to itself 18 years ago. I feel old.
It's digital according to the press release. Presumably it's not "Audio over USB" because it doesn't use the USB protocol but just provides a digital audio stream.
It's just a matter of selecting the correct RAID level. That's why the Soviets failed - RAID hadn't been invented then.
are more stories about people been woken up in the middle of the night and telling the caller to call someone else.
Fortunately, I'm more of a .net person.
The problem with these sort of surveys is that you get two buttons - "I'm satisfied' and "i'm not dissatisfied".
Time to start checking for giant maggots.
It is after a couple of pan galactic gargle blasters at the eponymous burger bar.
The principle that underlies all cosmology is called the cosmological principle. What do you expect them to call it - Fred?
since it only relates to the question of whether Cruz is a US citizen (which presumably he is). The real issue seems to be that the US constitution requires a presidential candidate to be a "natural born citizen" and no one quite knows what that means. (Popular understanding takes it to mean born in the US but legal authorities tend to think it includes all children of citizens regardless of where they're born.)
Two weeks at base. That'll make for a boring episode.
Unless, they get into some wacky hi-jinks with some cute furry creatures.
since I live in Australia I expect my local council would just issue a littering fine.
"As long ago as Reagan's Star Wars SDI imbecility, engineers were pointing out that it's much easier and cheaper to harden missiles against lasers than it is to produce vastly powerful beams which can track and sustain power-on-target against high speed projectiles."
Easier and cheaper - yet in the end it was more than the soviet Union could afford. (I'll leave it open as to whether that was the intent or just a post-hoc justification). Yes, there will be counter measures. Russia will probably afford them, Somali (or whatever county's next on the list) pirates probably not.
The moment someone works out how to vape it I'm in*.
Can't be done unfortunately, because chemistry.
"Ever seen the time estimates for a copy operation?"
You've got the wrong end of the stick. Messing around with the fundamentals of time is the only way they can think of to fix the problem.
The glory days of the BSOD were the Windows 9X era when the mere failure to think MS approved happy thoughts would prompt a VXD* to pull a blue screen. That really was Windows fault.
*What do you expect from something deliberately (and awkwardly) named not to sound like a disease.
So pronounced "booty".
Nothing sophomoric here. This is sold gold back-of-the-bike-shed humour.
We don't have warp drive for the same reason we don't have a time machine they (or it since they're the same thing really*) are pure wishful thinking.
We don't have a practical fusion reactor because climate change doesn't wear jackboots and therefore no one is willing to fund a new Manhattan Project.
*See Destroy All Monsters's post below.
Means the galactic economy is picking up.
The tourists should be arriving any day now. Time to start learning how to make a really good Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.
but he has to say "Damn these electric sex pants" at least once. Shouldn't be too hard working that into a Bond flick.
You've been face to face with John McAfee. You have my sympathy.
is by the creation of an industry standard attachment. (If you've ever tried using a phone with a power bank hanging off a USB cable you'll understand why that's a good idea.) Sadly, I can't see that ever happening.
to fend of attacks from that building that melts cars
Yeah, successful "hacking" requires not getting caught. It's kinda important.
"As for the Reg article, thankyou for a well considered and written piece."
Seconded. This stuff is important. Keep at it.
Get an astronaut to swing it around on the end of a string.
He's asking me to explain this concept of a "new spacecraft".
but I wouldn't mind putting Mint on it. (That surprisingly isn't any sort of double entendre.)
but it does have password1701. Also Picard 4-7 Alpha Tango (you wouldn't want anyone using that one).
But if you copy and paste the url it works fine which pretty much defeats the point of the block.
I have an FX6100 in a four year old motherboard. I just hoping AMD get Zen out before it dies.
The problem with all such attempts is that it's not possible to tell if an individual particle is entangled by looking at it. Any attempt to read the particle's state will simply ensure that it is no longer entangled. (It won't even tell you if it was previously entangled just that it not any more.) Entanglement is something you have to detect statistically.
Look up the "no cloning theorem". Short answer:no. Slightly longer amswer: no, that's just the way quantum stuff works.
making death threats is not a crime I'm glad I don't live there.
I read that as 'Swedish Pokemon team' and was quite disappointed to discover that Pokemon hadn't been made an Olympic sport.
