>>Lie detectors are not 100% accurate
Never mind 100%, lie detectors are a completely discredited technology...
You don't have to show ID to buy alcohol, knives or solvents unless you look underage. Also, I've never been asked to show any sort of id to book into a hotel in the UK.
Last time I claimed JSA (a few years ago now), I don' recall having to produce id either (but I could be misrembering this).
Also, there's big difference I'd suggest in having to own a passport or driving licence (i.e. photo id) and just having proof of residence (e.g. utility bills.)
Why do people keep buying grossly overpriced Apple crap?
>>The problem only affects extraction using Windows’ own File Explorer.
And who in their right mind would ever use that....?
Another writer who doesn't know the correct usage of "literally". Heading should read "AI's next battlefield is the battlefield..."
I buy stuff via Amazon all the time. I also never get any emails from them suggesting I might want to buy something. Perhaps that's because I don't retain cookies after logging out from Amazon.
I'd also point out that it appears to have escaped your notice that a huge number of companies sell their products to customers via Amazon. It's just not Amazon themselves...
>>Adland’s self-regulator, a private company with no basis in law
Gave away your bias there I think.
Would be interesting to consider whether Apple's tocs on this (and how they market and sell the movies) comply with UK consumer protection and advertising laws.
Remind em again why I would want to sue Google Chrome as my browser of choice?
I think it should go back to these schedule times now (along with all the other crap that passes for programming on the 10 million other channels)
>>As Reg readers will know, HTTP 500 is the code for an internal server error.
Well, if we know, why are you bothering telling us....
If you steal millions, you're hardly poor :)
What about the DWP which still insists that some documents be faxed to them...
Or as well as our obesession with handing public services over to private companies so that they can make their shareholders large amounts of cash...
Gosh! Who would have thought something involving Capita could have gone wrong....
You don't know what you're missing...
I'm confused (not for the first time!). Why did he go the police?
>>The platform confirmed to us that its corporate attorney has written to RCL seeking reimbursement from the company
Oh no! The lawyer has written a letter. Lol. They'll be trembling in fear....
*discards letter in bin*
Anyone can be photogrpaphed in a public place without their permission being sought first. There is no legislation preventing that. If the subject wished to claim that his "right" to privacy was breached then it's open to him/her to sue the photographer (as this chap looks set to do).
In The UK you can take anyone's photo in a public place without their permission. You can subsequently sell it or publish it if you wish,
Well Mr Scotsman...
And....what exactly is the ICO doing about this flagrant breach of the Data Protection Regulations?
You can't have a "final written warning" if you haven't first had a written warning :)
In the interests of pedantry, it would be remiss of me not to point out that the French defeated Austria Hungary and Russia at Austerlitz and not Germnay which then was largely Prussia, Bavaria and a host of small principalities. :)
Just like 90% of the population under 30 I suspect... ;)
I wouldn't mock too much given that Brtain has probably had more military defeats over the years than the French. Strangely enough you don't tend to hear about them in Britain...
The other fun thing about Agincourt (and Crecy) were that they were French defeats but the French not only won more battles (which again we don't tend to hear about in UK-land) during the Hundred Years War but won the war overall.... :)
>>To be fair to Brundle, Su is probably recognizable only in the tech world,
Soooo, no story here then really?
Moving on to actual news...
Spot the usual uninformed comments by Englandphiles. Most of which miss the fact that if Scottish taxpayers are paying for the Scottish broadband roleout, they shouldn't then have to pay for Englands (in effect paying twice).
>>A Frenchman? Running away? Gawd, you don't say
Does Dunkirk ring any bells with you. Been a popular film about it recently - you know the Brits running away and abandoning their French ally. :P
>>The clue's in the name.....
Well done for being today's inbred racist troll. No go away and take your shite with you.
I'll stick with Firefox thanks.
what is? The photo?
I think someone needs to read up on copyright law. The photo in question is certainly NOT in the public domain (something users of Pinterest need to learn...)
Meanwhile, the UK regulator is perfectly happy with Microsoft and it's Windows 10 info-hoover. Why are we not surprised...
I don't understand who this is aimed at. Surely any retro games fans who want to play C64 games will already being doing so - via an emulator on their pc?
>>steered Renault into bottom of the F1 league
>>the Renault team – running 7th out of 10 in the 2017 Formula One Constructor Standings
So which is it? Or to put it another way, does no one double-check your articles before publication?
Instead of blindly saying "fair use" I'd suggest that you actually read the legal definition of it. The allowed useage is not as broad as many people think it is.
The USS what? "Ponce" I hear you say? PONCE! ...
>>he videos are usually such poor quality that they look sketchy on my 6" phone screen, let alone a 40" (or bigger) tv.
Perhaps you need to be more selective about what you watch as plenty Youtube videos are 702 or 1080 HD. :)
Yet more VR rubbish that will never sell enough units to actually make a profit. B
As we are never ever going to have true AI - yes.
>>Are the UK regulators ICO just plain stupid, or being paid to be plain stupid?
The UK privacy regulator has always been feeble and showed little interest in actually protecting individual privacy.
And her aircraft are where....?
White elephant alert!
And what happens if you could afford them when they were born (nice job etc) and subsequently lost your job or became ill and couldn't work any more? Or if you're in a low paid job? Are you suggesting that only rich people can have children?
So no it really isn't that simple except for dicks like you...
>>As good as human driving
Or as bad?
>>Users, meanwhile, don't seem to be buying it. Many are flocking to the site seeking to download as much music as possible ahead of an anticipated shutdown.
And how exactly do you know this? Oh wait, you don't do you...
>>will we see a queue of drug dealers outside their local council offices
Not outside Council offices you won't as local Councils have nothing to do with the laws surrounding Canabis et al :)
yeah that'll work just like it does with Pirate Bay...
Except that (as far as I can see) there's no suggestion of UK ISPs blocking access to porn sites which don't comply.
I'd take a quick guess that at least 95% of porn sites are operated by non UK companies situated on websites outside the UK and who's ISPS are also non UK.
How will they be able to enforce this?
