Bring back netbooks!
Possibly if you've had a kidney transplant you will start seeing more ads for transplants and steak and kidney puddings?
"the US government dictates to the UK where supposedly British-owned aircraft will have their engines overhauled: Turkey, that well-known bastion of democratic stability"
Taking back control, innit?
The atoms which were formerly Hitler are getting older.
"played chicken there once too often"
I think that's called 'playing hedgehog'.
...you're not already interested in the persons at either end of the encrypted communication, why do you want to decrypt the message? If you are interested, why not capture the message before it's encrypted or after the recipient has decrypted it?
"We do NOT keep any logs that can identify or help in monitoring a user’s activity."
But, being unable to identify the culprit from the log data is not the same as being unable to identify the relevant log data for a known culprit.
"Some of us have a distinct antipathy to Lysenkoism"
You just don't, though - that's the problem!
It sounds a bit like the water industry to me. We are all told we must pay higher bills to pay for investment, but, so far, we don't seem to be getting the share certificates representing our investment.
@ John Brown (no body)
Is anybody claiming a 'right' to insist that you must eat tomatoes?
Don't tell me what to breathe, and I won't tell you what to eat!
So it doesn't contain any actual smoke?
Nobody said or implied that it did.

PS: I found that the best method was to stop buying cigarettes!
If passive smoking can harm people, how is vaping not going to do? I find the vapour from these machines extremely irritating, much more so than actual tobacco smoke.
In a few years we may find out what the effect of super-heating a mixture of nicotine plus cheap synthetic flavourings is.
MS Office achieved a dominant position in its field because:
1) Microsoft used its inside knowledge of its own operating systems to give Office a performance advantage over competitors, and
2) Microsoft leveraged its monopoly of the OS market to exploit that advantage.
Microsoft still gets away with charging inflated prices for its software because of the advantage it gained from using its monopoly to stifle competitors.
I'm sure that affects thousands of times more people than could care about not using specific shopping comparison sites (because, let's face it, historically all shopping comparison sites were useless crap that nobody visited more than once.)
Retrospective legislation to unpick PFIs and deal with the scum profiting from them would get my vote (and perhaps millions of others?) That would be a rare example of good populism.
Without regulation a free market is about as likely to persist as a vacuum at sea level.
...because closures and prototype based inheritance are just what you need in an introductory programming course.
It's amazing how many people think that 'liking the idea of refuting' something is the same thing as 'actually refuting' it.
