Training the AI to spot paedophile priests?
Re: Didn't the IBM R&D division...
I imagine crystal scanners are difficult and crystals that get handled would become very difficult to read even then.
I advise people not to touch HP printers
For two reasons:
1. Stupidly expensive ink.
2. We have some expensive HP printer/scanners at work and when monitoring NTP network traffic three devices were transmitting leap second packets.
Yes, it was the three printers.
With what resources?
Their computer systems are antiquated, give them the tools to do the job.
I like it!
is what take El Reg from extremely good to great.
IBM hasn't been IBM for a very long time
I visited the San Jose site a couple of times in 1999 and that was the IBM I know.
This is some corporate parasites.
Re: something missed...
The surprising thing is that Gorusch is that he was appointed during Trump's reign.
Fully committed to the law and ignores the politics.
Ghurknas, Afghan interpreters were betrayed as well
By some unspeakable pieces of shit like this.
The US is the biggest hypocrite on this subject.
They steal any technology they can get away with, hide subsidies for favoured industries/companies and, just like now,
During the Reagan era there was COCOM, a coordinating committee on technology export with the idea of making it difficult for foreign manufacturers to get certain parts thus protecting US manufacturers of high tech products.
Except, as usual, someone got clever. I designed a product using 4000 series CMOS and there was a standard shift register and suddenly I couldn't buy the RCA part without filling in piles of forms. Solution - buy the same Toshiba part.
This also meant a number of US equipment manufacturers had problems exporting because straightforward products used COCOM controlled parts.
Sorry, but I've been the for interview and frankly the way they behave is disgusting.
HR are like scared rabbit's the electric wheelchairs they are required to have were tucked in a corner with flat tyres. It went downhill from there.
makes more sense
Blood spilled from another US high school shooting has yet to dry – and video games are already being blamed
Re: So WTF is wrong with the US school system?
Bullying and abuse by staff is accepted.
At Columbine the sports 'jocks' even got away with rape because the staff persuaded the police to ignore them.
In this case the kid wasn't good at sports so the sports staff bullied and abused him giving the green light for other pupils to do the same.
It has been noted that he didn't shoot at pupils he liked.
No one is asking why he did it
There is a bullying culture there amongst the staff and particularly the sports staff.
Exactly the same happened at Columbine including persuading the local police not to investigate two rapes carried out by their favourites sports pupils.
Fix the culture or face the penalties.
The US empire is slowly crumbling
Or maybe not slowly.
Did the monkey ask a lawyer to do this?
PETA - patronising animals.

A true El Reg comment
Cloud-surfing orgs under attack, Microsoft antivirus for Chrome, Windows 10 S bypass, non-RSA gigs, and more
I have added the Chrome extension.
Keep fixing it
Until you break it.
The opposite of KISS.
Qualcomm deserve to lose out
They abused their patent library for years, rigging license costs for force out competitors and have been fined for it.
If you work there start looking around as their attempts to diversify don't seem to be paying off yet.
Whereas as the FCC

Switch On And Duck - the basic approach to AI.
Mobile as the emergency option?
It sounds reasonable.
Plus if the cable duct is damaged beyond use POTS wouldn't work.

Don't know about Mars but you're definitely from another planet.
Moto C Plus
The idea behind the Z2 is the same reason I bought a Moto C Plus recently after I couldn't get a usable replacement for my S3 Galaxy Mini - I want a phone that does basic phone stuff.
The 4000mAah battery means less charging which should help extend battery life and it came out in July last year so should be able to buy batteries for a fair while.
What brave new world
This would have made Aldous Huxley tremble
Pai is shamelessly corrupt and the Republicans protect him since they make money out of it.
Re: Unstable operation coming soon...
Assuming contact details are correct.
Bunch of petty autocrats
WIPO, EPO and so many others.
About time they were woken up.
Another bargaining chip
Re: "This is what OVER-regulation looks like! #ditchcalifornia."
Like the battery fire on that 787 from Japan
The Home Office
That explains it and matches my dealings with them a couple of times.
NOT the front line staff, they were great but privileged gits further back.
Re: Still reeling
It could be considered 'passing off' so there is an argument.
Because 200 lb rugby players aren't much good at this stuff.
Losing how much?
Uber lost $1.5 billion in the third quarter of 2017.
What happens when they have destroyed the competition in various areas?
Just like getting people to Mars.
Without oxygen, water, volatile or organic compounds - oh, and radiation shielding may not be too easy.

It's nor Broadcom
It is Avago Technology that took over Broadcom but use the Broadcom name so US politicians don't catch on.
I used to work for Broadcom and resigned after yet another disaster BTW.
Re: How do the NOIs appear in the accounts?
Worth trying just for laughs.
can't pass the buck this time.
Re: Given an IP address can be spoofed by a printer theses days you'd better be careful about that
Did you read the bit about getting a unique identifier for the PC plus the MAC address?
Even if you solve the technical issue, all you need is to get at someone who has access.
El Reg at it's best
There is the just plain daft side then when it counts there is bloody good journalism.
This combination is what makes The Register my favourite online rag!
The main weapon is
A Clusterf*ck bomb.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
No! It's Captain Cockup!
I'm waiting for GPU malware.
A brief history of Celestica
Celestica are one of the big three contract manufacturers including Solectron and Son Hai aka Foxconn.
Cleestica as created in a novel way - IBM built the worlds most advanced and automated plant for manufacturing PCs and made a loss because of the layers of management so sold it - to some of the managers who then started selling the PCs at IBM a good price.
I worked for them in the UK on a range of projects for six years.
Fix the title
It is obvious
Ah, the US
Look at Kansas over the same period. Same thing, same effect and Trump has signed the Tax Bill for the whole country that does the same thing.
