"Now, if someone could do something a bit like an oversize psion series 5 where I can use a touch screen and then a keyboard for those email messages and put it on a desk, and ... you get the picture."
You mean like coughing up a tenner for a Bluetooth keyboard, maybe a touch more if you want a stand built in?
He's doing a great job of pushing the boundaries and proving where the flaws in the system are by exploiting them for his own profit
Re: There's more to it that that...
>> Maybe, but your washing machine/tumble drier/dishwasher all have selectable 'wait X hours' modes which do allow for this kind of usage.
Yours may have but my ten year old washing machine and tumble drier definitely don't unless I use an alarm clock to tell me to go down and press the start button
Re: Yet ANOTHER Trump story?
Cheers for that. Yup, zooming in confirms lots of space at the back of each of the sections as reported but the image also demonstrates why the Donald would view it as full from his point of view
Just don't get it too accurate in case of incriminating yourselves
Re: Android Pay on millions of un-updateable devices...
For extra convenience don't even bother looking at your bank statements
Probably thought he was doing a test restore but had the wrong database active
Re: stick notes ?
Why does the mind boggle? Many people struggle to remember things, even things they use every day for years. I have a friend who can't remember his wife or kids' names, drives him nuts but he just can't do it.
Malware developers go full service
It looks like they're trying to make sure all options are available for their customers
Re: No, just no.
>"Councils make money flogging their (compulsory) electoral register"

Which sadly means nothing as the scumbags can still access your records from the registers taken prior to being able to opt out
I've always found it to be that way too
Every time you get put through to the outsourced centre you get a script monkey with zero-to-dangerous knowledge and no intention of being helpful
Every time you get through to the UK based centre you get someone who is knowledgeable about the subject and helpful

Given the following reference to heavy petting I'd presume it was correct first time
Having 'bought' the hardware on the cheap in the liquidation sale
Re: But I'm more curious, if they're so shite, why you're with them after five years?
In oh so many areas of the country they're the only network available as the others 'focus on' (i.e. only cover) dense metropolitan areas so they can claim, quite honestly, that they cover over 90% of British homes.
The last 5% have little to no chance of ever getting a signal off anyone except O2.
Re: As a 950 XL user
Only had one for a couple of weeks but very happy so far
Agreed on the big improvements recently, a few more of those and it'll be great
Wonder how much they've 'updated' the software, could be interesting
With banking it's even worse though.
As a customer I need to be absolutely sure that everything works perfectly. Any glitch, bug or issue will reduce my confidence in the bank as a whole rather than just the software.

Re: It should never have exsted!
Except that still wouldn't work as according to US law the US govt and state authorities have access to any data held by a US based company.
The only way to make the data safe enough for EU laws under current the current US laws would be to store the data in Europe on servers owned by wholly European companies. Those big US companies would have to spin-off all their European activities into totally independent entities.

Re: Are these really "counterfeits"?
Except the whole root of the issue is the counterfeits are dependent on FTDI drivers
I'm sorry, but I just couldn't finish the article.
Are the editors on strike or was this a case of publishing the first draft?
"Tech firms jobs, local spending and taxable revenue to a region for governments."
"In Europe, The Ireland is favored by many ..."
Surely there should be a mechanical backup that prevents the temperature going beyond an acceptable range. You know, just in case.
When will management and the bean counters learn that there is rarely any real saving from outsourcing?
Yes, it allows them to move the location of the costs on the balance sheet but the final result is so often the same - more cost and a poorer service.
Re: Almost as good
Had my 1020 since release and still very happy with it.
Best small camera I've ever seen and it has a perfectly well-behaved phone attached :)
Not quite sure what wizardry Nokia put into the battery management that allows it to outlast new phones from other manufacturers even though it's well over 2 years old now.
I will be very sad when it needs replacing.
Re: The US govt are more concerned by illegal drones than guns?!
Drones might kill people so have to be regulated just in case
Guns definitely kill people so their owners are too scary to regulate

Is it a requirement that there is a chance of having your name mistaken as Tony Stark to be on the panel?

Surely both sexual harassment and bullying in the workplace have operational relevance as they impact the efficiency of the affected team members.
It has to be something that could embarrass the company, or could worry investors, but did not happen in the workplace.
Re: El Reg well and truly trumped by the Catalan dioramists!
I did specify only for emergencies - meaning specifically Playmobil shortage type emergencies
Re: El Reg well and truly trumped by the Catalan dioramists!
More Playmobil is always good

Re: Why wasn't this noticed by the compiler ....
Even if it was compiled the compilation might have been completed before the real error occurred - the change to case sensitivity in the API. Everything coded prior to that point would have to be retested (and obviously wasn't). That should have been a red-flag kind of change (not “a minor update to the Compute Engine API”) - alert everyone and make sure you have a pro team on standby for the implementation.

People talk, to each other, while consuming programming? What is this crazy talk sir?
Excellent tie-in between the two there sir :)
Re: Sky v Virgin Customer Service
I've heard this quite a few times but never experienced it - every time I've called Virgin they've been helpful and the issue has been fixed within the next few hours.
*2) we live in an age where 24 inch wide screen monitors have been the standard for any office for at least the last 10 years.*
I wish, At most of the sites I've worked at in those same 10 years large monitors are only for managers and users - developers have to make do with the cheapest 14 or 15 inch monitors available :(
Hmm, my xbox never asks me if I want to 'share' things, maybe because I don't have Live Gold
Re: Cloud CRM providers
You can't absolve someone of legal liability.
That's like shooting someone and then saying you're not guilty because your mate Jim said it was OK.
I can see your point if you're new to the genre but I already have most of those tracks for Rock Band ;)
If Rock Band 4 can take the genre back to where it was with Rock Band 2 before adding in new complexities it'll be on a strong footing going forward. Simply returning the campaign mode is a huge help. As much as many of us liked the hyper-realism additions to Rock Band 3 many more found it frustrating and felt that the the fun had been removed.
Re: "Lyft denies any wrongdoing by its employees."
Robert is correct

Re: Er Guys...
Like most here, I assume, I have a different primary email but the stuff I route through NTLworld / Virgin seems to been coming through OK so far
Is the world ready for a lego babbage engine?
Yes, yes, I really hope it is :)
