EDT to make a comeback (or my personal preference, EDT/TPU).
TETRA...is said to cover 99 per cent of Great Britain’s landmass v EE 4G network, per their own coverage map, looks to cover about 25% of the UK's landmass with indoor coverage, 50% with outdoor coverage.
Something you would absolutely want in the emergency services is a guarantee that your comms device is going to be able transmit/receive. EE are nowhere near this target, with a focus on population coverage and not landmass coverage.
" Many plan to never have their cars updated."
Lots of my friends who own affected cars have been talking in this way. Alas, the UK government is talking about making the recall mandatory, being policed via the MOT (i.e. your call will not pass its MOT if its not had the recall applied).
This is what I'd like to see Amazon offer, the equivalent service they offer for [most] physical CD's: buy the CD and get, gratis, the MP3 version. So, buy the book, get the ebook free.
Perhaps not so much of an issue for the UK, being an island, but when flogging off spectrum like this, how does the government / operators ensure there is no bleed beyond the borders of the country where the spectrum has been sold - or is it simply a case of don't expect a signal near a border?
What's that - you want your indicators to work? Please follow these instructions to side-load indicators.apk on to your car. This will need the following permissions - location, contact list, current call details etc etc
Really, the car is "powered by" Android Auto? So no proprietary ECU then, it's all done by Android? Or, as I suspect, the infotainment system is now Android based.
Does anyone have an idea why the new logo for Edge is a shower head over a wash basin? For reference: http://logos.wikia.com/wiki/Microsoft_Edge
So for films, does that mean each dialogue element could be referenced independently? So we could watch a film where we could choose the dub, e.g. Harry could be talking in English, but Hermione in Swedish?
All of the other issues aside, are they still releasing physical copies for review/translation etc?
I always thought the Scouting movement's motto was "Be Prepared"?
or even "Parlay voo AY MAYOR EE CAN", said very loudly, with no reference to English at all...
Quite a few years ago when I worked for a bank that was subsequently taken over by a Spanish bank, we had a UPS test one weekend. Everything worked flawlessly. Unfortunately, mid-way through the day on the Monday, all power in the building failed, knocking out the mainframes. Some herbert had forgotten to switch back over to mains power, and the generator duly ran out of diesel.
My favourite audio quote is the one from when the Mars Climate Orbiter was on final approach: "****, ****, **** - what do you mean they were using metric?"
Perhaps its showing what the speed limit is, rather than a snapshot of the sign it last read...? I've never seen a speed limit road sign with "mph" on either, yet that is on the HUD.
Well, if you must work from home...
I presume SAP have decided that all of the tooling that Sybase had when they bought them is not fit for purpose, or at least fit for this purpose?
For all those confused by Private Eye references, their glossary in each issue can be found on page 94.
As a first step, how about Sky allowing its customers to change the default DNS providers on their routers, so OpenDNS can be specified (rather than the roundabout way you have to do this currently, which families that just want a service out of the box are unlikely to be able to configure - i.e. an independent DHCP service running on a different machine in the house).
"Sony...can afford to wait and see what its arch-rival will come up with"
Right, because it takes no time at all to develop a new console?
I'm assuming that the 3G part of the MiFi isn't interfering with the signal, but the WiFi side of it is?
"All that's needed is some kind of OCR that can convert scanned sheet music into a midi file..." - what, like SharpEye?
That's the best chuckle I've had in ages
That spoke to you, as well. I remember using one as a pool car - very advanced for its day, even if somewhat gimmicky. Who would have thought that people would like to have "digital" dashboards and be able to have the car communicate with you?
...I'd love to see the expenses claim!
Oh, you mean the Personnel Manager?
Let's hope that NASA have remembered the difference between metric and imperial measurements this time, and that everyone is working on the same basis.
I'm assuming that the Nokia still comes out as top phone for inmates? What about for the rest of us, that want a mobile phone, rather than a cell phone?
...with micro USB?
They certainly need to do something at Disneyland Paris. It's all a bit tired now, or is that just me as I'm getting older?
...and I remember having a letter printed in Crash magazine - I was so proud. For some true nostalgia remind yourselves of the covers by Oliver Frey: http://www.oliverfreyart.com and Crash magazine itself: http://www.crashonline.org.uk
Many years ago, when I had a Saturday job in Dixons, I remember selling most of what is listed here: http://www.amstrad.com/products/archive/index.html
...with the RSI inducing "cheat" of using a table-tennis ball when doing the 100 metres!

...some reviews of products don't help - for example 3DTV's where you don't get any bundled glasses, and yet this doesn't feature in the headline price or perhaps get taken in to account in the final review score.
You wouldn't know of any reviews that fail on that test, would you El Reg?
Fantastic, now terrorists can deploy their own base-stations, which they can use to make calls on AND block GPS. Great, no risk of incoming missiles whilst planning something on the phone. Perhaps Afghanistan will see the first wide-ranging deployment of this?
This book contains commentary and analysis regarding recent WikiLeaks disclosures, not the original material disclosed via the WikiLeaks website.
Great - can we now be given the option to update our EPG's so that where a channel simulcasts, we can see the HD channel by default (e.g. I want to see ITV HD listed where ITV SD currently is within the EPG), rather than having to skip about the EPG finding the HD channels.
They may operate it much like any other company that takes your card info before you have used their service, and reserves/blocks an amount that _they_ consider sufficient to cover your likely spend (think hotels). Once you've finished using the service, they then apply the actual charge and [are supposed to] release the reservation/block on your funds. Problem is, these companies reserve/block far too high an amount, and it never seems to clear at the point you actually pay them. So whilst you think you've got x amount of available credit/balance on your account, your bank/credit card won't actually let you use it (because of the hidden blocks).
No matter how high the definition of a picture of a turd, it is still a picture of a turd. Exciting though, because now there will be more opportunities to watch a wider variety of turds in higher definition - although no doubt trying to use the same amount of bandwidth as the pixelated turd channels.
What's that you say, they want to charge you _extra_ for it?
...er, just after summer - so for all of you that might have been seriously interested at this price point to take your summer reading away with you, sorry.
This is a misnomer - when do you actually use Skype for voice? For me, it's when I'm travelling and want to make cheap calls home, rather than paying exorbitant roaming fees; I make those calls either from my hotel or a local café, to make use of free wi-fi - it would be even more expensive to make a VOIP call over data when roaming than it would be to make a standard voice call. The only other time I would be sat in front of my laptop anyway, and could make the call that way (looking handsome in a headset - at least its in private). Skype to Skype calls would be the same, and I'm not expecting to completely replace all of my telephony requirements with a single iPhone app anyway.
However, _if_ you didn't pay for the data usage, and only paid the call cost, and _if_ that was at the same rate that Skype charges for calls to phones (landlines or mobiles) then yes, I would use that whilst travelling - as it would be a lot cheaper than making the mobile call (and often quality is better as well). However, I don't see Skype having a relationship with every MNO to enable a revenue share arrangement, and if they did it's unlikely to be at their standard pricing levels.
I feel that you've really broadened our horizons.
Facebook = personal
LinkedIn = business
We need to educate both ourselves and our children about what 'public domain' means.
In response to some of Sky's early advertising around HD, I lodged a complaint with Advertising Standards, who bounced it on to Ofcom. My complaint was around the number of hours each month that Sky had HD programming. My argument was the same - that for it to be considered HD then surely it must be filmed in HD.
The response was:
"We would not dispute that much of Sky's HD output is up-scaled standard definition programming rather than content filmed in HD. However this material is still being broadcast in an HD format (720 or 1080 lines) and would therefore be correctly regarded as HD."
"Like we said, people are lazy. They don't go out of their way to use anything other than what they already have."
So they won't be installing Chrome in the first place. Which is a shame, when you think of what they'll continue to use instead...
Oh - thanks "Sun", for qualifying the article with a picture of gold; wasn't sure what it looked like.
OK, 64 now...
If one side of government is pushing to have snooping on our traffic made de-facto, in the name of anti-privacy, how will that co-exist with this legislation?
@RegisterFail - you're correct, this is exactly why we need Europe - in this instance. You might be arguing the opposite if HMG were resisting deep packet inspection of ALL traffic to benefit private enterprises and it got foisted on us by Europe.
