hasn't it been official since November 8?
Uber's reflexive resistance to regulation makes sense, given
Silicon Valley's assumption that rules apply only to everyone else that it's Uber.
I also went looking. Learnt a lot about liberty ships but nothing about why their gun barrel might be so special. (Also discovered that NASA has a secret space navy but I'm calling citation needed on that one.)
it's an old and reliable launch system. A clue to why it's not more widely used can perhaps be had by watching the video and comparing the size of the rocket to the size of the aircraft that's carrying it.
I'm sure I detected something approaching a syllogism in Trump's dialogue.
that goldfish do in fact have a decent memory. Now a certain politician I won't name because I have apparently used up my quota. . . Suffice it to say that the value you want is in the order of 5 Tr.
the correct terminology around here is 'todger'.
El Reg's standards are slipping.
I wouldn't trust a car that cost that little.
In any case how is this different from the glory days of MS Flight Simulator? I'm pretty sure there was a lot more than $4000 worth of add ons for that.
Cheney was running the US, Dubya had the good sense to go off reading children stories about animals. Now Pence has to run the country while convincing Trump that he's really the one doing it, all the while stopping regularly to duck the orange one's curve-balls. Add to that the fact that the Republican party chose Cheney but Trump chose Pence and you've got one mega-omnishambles coming up.
Why not use conventional capacitors? It not like we're talking about large amounts of energy or long cycle times.
Trump will fix that.
why didn't he just rent a Michael Bay movie?
No one says N-A-S-A. On the other hand as far as I know ESA is always pronounced E-S-A. That's enough to justify using/not using the definite article. Of course, that probably means that we should write 'Nasa' but i imagine the agency - like my spellchecker - objects. (They can't do much about the pronunciation, though).
"license the dataset"
Isn't that a bit like fencing the sea.
I find Google's voice recognition perform exceptionally well in noisy environments. I've had it recognise simple commands in situations where the traffic noise was so bad I couldn't make out my phone's reply.
They'll decide you're speaking Arabic which remember they don't understand and send the Trump Troopers around "just in case".
Just harness people's love of battering the buttons at on-demand pedestrian crossings.. Hit the button 20 times or you don't get to cross. Hit it 50 times and you actually get to cross 5 seconds sooner.
"At some point, people need to wakeup and realize you can't solve social problems with technology."
Social problems are rarely solved by anything else. That there are literal slaves toiling in the fields of Alabama is not because people in the 21st century are better than those in the nineteenth but because we have mechanical harvesters.
And if you pay attention you will see that Captain DaFt didn't mention any of the things you list.
considering that I only read the articles about the weird sex criminals in Bootnotes.
Thank goodness I know what a 'Dob' is because I'm already scared enough as it is.
is that in the years since it was created it has changed from satire to a handbook.
The difference is automotive safety standards are a bit more than vague suggestions.
it's not a replacement for the Note, just a big phone.
Looks like Davros to me. Then again if you painted Davros orange and gave him a stupid wig. Might need to do something about the charming personality though.
Then I realised: Due to IP laws anyone how intends to outdoors nearby during the event will be required to wear a blindfold. Not to worry, they will send you one free. Just go to their website next Friday morning.
"Stupid story" Definitely. Keep 'em coming folks.
Let me introduce you to my sword.
Obviously Pastafarianism - it's the one with the strippers.
40 degrees in St Kilda and I think it was only September.
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.
