What's silent but violent and costs $250m? Yes, it's Lockheed Martin's super-quiet, supersonic X-plane for NASA
So quieter than our LG dishwasher then.
This is the exact situation that the Homer Simpson "Doh" meme was invented for.
My favourite segment was the suggestion that we are considering building our own satellite network. Just. Can't. Make. It. Up.
Not sure Neil really understands the Nyquist - Shannon sampling theorem.
This is the result of some seriously impressive hardware and software engineering. You've got to take your hat off to them.
Thank you to Liberty and everyone else who has been opposing this, unsung heroes all of them. And the general public won't even be aware that this is going on.
Looks like El Reg is off the Christmas card list then.

"painted frisbees" - I knew it!
She knows full well that what she is demanding regarding encryption is impossible but she also knows that her core, target voters are ignorant of this.

Well done! Excellent music reference.
If you want to see a full-on, Apple fanboy/girl down voting frenzy then I suggest you head over to Ars Technica - https://arstechnica.co.uk/gadgets/2017/09/iphone-x-hands-on/
Just mentioning Samsung get you -100 :)
If this falls apart and he walks free then I hope UK Gov will be all over our allies like a rash. Bet they won't though.
This will be used in years to come as the text-book example of stitching up like a kipper.
If he ever returns to UK soil I would love to hear his opinions of the current UK Government.
Genuine question - In his line of work is he likely to have anything incriminating he could use as leverage?
Hello...Amber...are you there? Hello...Hello.....
And not a peep from Amber "necessary hashtags" Rudd.
Now if only someone would invent a charger that could be placed at work or at home. They could make a fortune ;)
So the Scandinavian system works efficiently and is cost effective. This 100% guarantees that UK gov will totally ignore it and bodge together a proprietary heap of junk for 4 times the price. Kerching!
74 countries hit by NSA-powered WannaCrypt ransomware backdoor: Emergency fixes emitted by Microsoft for WinXP+
According to Amber Rudd XP is not secure and the NHS needs to sort it out, although they aren't going to get extra money to do it. Meanwhile getting IT advice from Amber is like your Nan asking if you have heard of "the youtube".
Re: Who to choose?
I've been looking at our constituency result from 2015. Tories ~20,000, Labour ~ 17000, UKIP ~ 8000, Lib dem ~ 900. My wife and I have spent the best part of an hour trying to decide whether to vote tactically. Clearly LIb Dems are they way to go if you are anti-brexit but I'm not certain they could claw back ~ 12,000 votes in a constituency which has always switched between Con and Lab. So if it's tactical we have to vote Labour which would be really painful given their current shambolic showing.
