I had a Suuntu watch with a sapphire screen. Just grazed it whilst walking past a pedestrian bollard and big scratch on the face. Never believed the hype about scratch proof glass and now had the proof!!

The main problem as I see it is that 3D printers can't print in a mixture of colours, or even multiple prime colours. That and the size of the finished articles.
The problem with infrastructure (like pumping stations), is they should not be anywhere near the internet. They should have dedicated cables to the head office. More expensive? Of course. More secure? Definitely. Then you only really need to worry about the head office security infrastructure.
But the big question is why it's even an option to make it public? Imagine if the banks let customers transactions available for all to see?
Minor problem here. If your network switches are MAC-address locked, pulling a PC (or Chromebook) and plugging in a new one would (in a security conscious setup anyway) would then lock out that port. So now the end user has to tell the network guys which port he's removed the device from and what the new device's MAC address is. An everyday thing for the computer department, not so for Fred in Accounts !
Well, little does he know, I also post myself looking at p0rn sites on those same p0rn sites. Anything to get my ratings up I say !!!
When the computers were brought down by that virus, I bet fax was the main communication system used between hospitals.
They were infected. Very difficult to then thwart the attack. Think horse, bolt, stable door.
And if this has even a smidgeon of success, next it's politics.
The big elephant in the room though is that targeted advertising just doesn't work.
If blokes want to get their 'target' in the mood here's a hint. Be nice to them. Buy flowers/chocolates. Don't come home drunk demanding food on the table. You know, the basics.
And the other way I've noticed Johnny Foreigner speak into the phone is to use a earpiece to listen but speak into the mic whilst holding the phone like they're eating a chocolate bar. Best of both worlds?
$5 million in lost wages? I'd work for Huawei for that kind of money.
So, at last. A blockchain system that actually will make money :-)
Do you trust the average unemployed PFY to install fibre? Dream on.
Do you think all the local authorities will let their roads be dug up to lay the fibre without a hitch (especially in built up cities/historic towns)? Dream on.
What about the islands, mainly Scottish ones admittedly, who'll lay the fibre (specialist boats aren't cheap or readily available).
They need to do it incrementally.
Shot themselves in the foot methinks. But I'm surprised Basho was going through $1.5 million a month. Seems a tad excessive.
The Immutable Blob would be a better film than my indie release The Immutable Bob where no matter what drugs he took, he didn't transform into gold :-(
15mm calibre weapon. Er, is the laser beam 15mm? If not, it's not a 15mm calibre weapon. And it looks like it was cribbed off YouTube - lots of 'laser assault rifles' on there, all bursting black balloons (white/light coloured ones are too reflective it seems)!!!
Who can hold a weapon perfectly still for a few seconds whilst it's burning your enemy?
And to counter it? Wear mirrored Ray-bans :-)
Re: To follow shortly...
Taranado - if sharks can do it, why not giant man-eating tarantulas?
Imagine a patent on organizing computer files being used against online shopping sites. Oh, it's still happening
Looks like they're breaking my (patent pending) patent of trolling large companies on the internet for large sums of money for using basic technology in the hope that the judge/jury are technically illiterate and find in my favour. Who needs Wonga when everyday is my payday !!!!!
Re: Tracking perpetrators is hard, said Troy Mursch
Wanting to make sure you're not caught?
I wonder if the banks will absorb the extra costs and give lower bonuses to the execs or look at stopping free banking for the general public.
And have NSO Group changed their firing policies so when they fire someone they show them the door straight away? I mean, that's IT Security 101.
I wouldn't have thought a plane doing 5000 km is 'regional' - that's more trans-Atlantical.
You'd think that Israel would have anti-virus software on their soldiers smart phones/tablets considering the current climate in that part of the world.
I think someone needs some 'Sage' advice on doing updates !!!!!!!!
"potentially fungible data centres"- now they sound like fun places to work!!!!!
And no doubt you've asked nicely to get one for a long term 'review' :-)
"killed more than 1,110 Americans from Alaska to Hawaii" - that's a lot of Americans in the Pacific.
"TPP's SystmOne software". Well, if they can't even spell System properly, what hope have the patients got of a working system?
Why does a 3rd party survey service need mobile numbers let alone date of birth? Oh yeah, they doing a survey on data mining.
Any chance that this will improve Vodafone's internet speed or is this just to get the backroom boys excited?
So, developers are going to miss out their (northern) summer holidays trying to find out what's not going to work on their current apps? Thanks Google.
All very well talking about notches. But what about phones that now want hugs?
3 days? What if Google decided at 6 pm on a Friday before a bank holiday weekend? Come into work on Tuesday and find Google have deleted everything. Nice.
Not bad price for free software !!!
Not new news. Had trouble well over a year ago with them and decided to upsticks and move all my domains to Google. No issues with them (touch wood).
And you need a powerful computer to decrypt *any* encrypted/secure time source, NTP or any other proposal. There go precious milliseconds.
And if your ISP is anything like mine, latency sucks, so I'm happy if my computers are just showing the correct date !!!!
If only there was a law banning morons.
I seriously hope that's $7,500 per person else Google, Facebook etc will be breaking the law every day and not notice it on the bank balance.
Manufacturer makes 5%. Resellers then add their 50% markup. Good for publicity but that's all it's good for unfortunately.
It's a slog to chase £1 billion? How effing lazy have those effing a-holes become?
Why did they store email addresses/passwords in one place and useful info like credit cards in (presumably) another database? Haven't they heard of normalisation?
Another excuse to manufacturer iThings in the USA!!!
That'll please Donald who'll no doubt claim it was down to his brilliance !!
Advised by Google or Advertised by Google ?
SP02 meters currently shove red light through your finger tip to see how much oxygen you have in the blood stream. I've always wondered why it couldn't be tweaked to see sugar as well. It's just another 'thing' in your blood. Any thoughts?
When the insider trader gave back the $75,000 who got the money? Was it the SEC or the actual people he robbed?
If they withhold their number, then you have to listen to the scum to find out who they are so you can then complain to the ICO. Surely in this day and age, there must be a better way of complaining?
You can't opt out of Windows 10 user data grab unless you install something else and in the real world, the muggles know no better.
Big three areas ... and Android not there? It's the sole reason for Chrome browser beating IE.
When she gets out and has the obligatory TV deal, will it be called The Reality Show?
Yep. Don't want to look like the Chinese when we hand over a prisoner (student Otto Warmbier) who dies when he hits US soil.
