...for the Louis Renault homage.
I imagine like most people reading this, I've never used either of 'em.
Anybody care to fess up?
"In addition to suggesting possible jobs, Microsoft said its Resume Assistant will offer improvements to users' résumés by looking at the LinkedIn profiles of those with similar job titles and examining how they describe themselves and their positions."
AI plagerism, anyone?
They have to an extent, in the Paris Metro, which is a step up from low speed lines like the DLR - 1 line (14) was designed to be autonomous from birth and line 1 has been converted, with line 4 in progress.
Obviously it's not like converting a main line (no deviation from the route) but it's a start.
More to the point, why shouldn't they?
Unless they have something to hide of course...
Oh but it is a problem, due to the Le Touquet Treaty - that allows UK Customs officials to make border checks on French soil.
As a seperately negotiated agreement that can be terminated at any time by either party with just 2 year's notice, it represents a massive potential curve ball.
If the French do the pull the plug (and they have every right, due to the lack of support over the Calais migrant camps by HM Gov) it WILL be chaos.
And if the Br-idiots think leaving the EU will solve the problem all these frightful illeagals* just wait...
Take it from someone that crosses every six weeks.
It's things like this that make me relieved I don't have children - I genuinely feel for any parent that has to deal with this sort of bollocks.
And who's fault will it be when (not if) the first evidence of misuse by innaproriate adults comes to light?
Not Zuck's, that's for sure...
Except the current Mac Minis - predidcatably - cannot be upgraded of course. Unless you are particularly brave with a soldering iron.
I would say "Apple take note" but they are busy studying sales figures.
Polaroid stopped making the peel apart film some years ago but Fuji carried the torch until they ceased production early this year.
Still got a few boxes of the Fuji in my fridge. Quality compared to the modern Instax stuff is wonderful, lugging around 3.5 kilos of attached Mamaiya less so.
I think it's the fact they are effectively making the data collection mandatory - and holding the users of expensive products they have shelled out for hostage.
Terms of the privacy statement are almost immaterial - users should have the option. it's the whole Thin End Of The Wedge argument.
No, we'll be too busy giving Google sweetheart tax breaks and other big business friendly "advantages"
Shirley this is something Talk Talk can use as a USP in their advertising?
What UBER needs more is a morale compass...
...with Jeff Sessions on speed dial?
If some people are unable to comprehend why we on the right-hand side of the pond complain about the rape and general bastardistion of the English language, there is your answer!
Let's see how many downvotes I can accumulate for my temerity.
"Factors such as typing speed, vocal inflexions, facial recognition and proximity to familiar Bluetooth devices and Wi-Fi hotspots would be used to calculate the score"
So, for this to work, some or all of these factors have to be enabled. Naturally the increasing data slurp is just a coincidence...
You see this is why you should never use your ISP's email - set up your own somewhere else with 123-REG for instance.
The thing that gets me as said before is, if users WANT something like this, you would expect them to gravitate towards Twitter etc. to feed their desires.
So apart from a little navel gazing, not quite sure what the point is...
Whatever, if the person responsible doesn't have the cajones big enough to admit it was shome mishtake, at least move it to the right column. Hell, even flowing it across the main content horizontally would be an improvement. As it is the proximity to the "Don't Miss" div is enough to kill it with fire.
Last commercial passenger flight landed at CDG last week.
747 was also my first flight - PAN AM, LHR to JFK in the early 70s. Bissfully unaware of the mechanics of plane design as I was, the sight of the wings flexing on take off certainly grabbbed my attention...
Too. Much. Irony.
..when you consider how many people are preferring to BUY WIN7 licences...
IIRC it was Mike Rutherford that wrote the lyrics to to Land of Confusion..
As for the group's masterpiece it's between Foxtrot ot Selling England for a lot of people.
Although I have a soft spot for A Trick of The Tail - first album of theirs I bought. First few bars belting out of my old Dad's Tannoy Lanchesters - I was hooked for life.
20million Dollars to terminate his contract... start a crowdfunding exercise perhaps?
