Re: Access to the Open LV dataset...
Nothing could induce me to lower myself to this level - Although I can Siemens will crumbling from here. Just glad I have the capacity to resist.
"standard Android experience"
Knocking Samsung into a bloated, cocked hat.
Lemme get this right
Mozilla will soon track what you look at today, yesterday and last week, in the vague hope that you will have forgotten what you were looking at and offer you more of the same, almost the same or a bit similar, in the vague expectation you will find it interesting.
So, pretty much similar to the banal crap one gets from mindlessly ad-tainted Google "intelligent" search results which are anything but intelligent (We saw you searching for such-and-such and here are some ads for things our marketing idiots tell us are a bit like it) plus Google's and Amazon's mindless advertising (look for a widget and get pursued round the web by idiots assuming you want more widgets and widget-ish things).
I thought Firefox was popular because you could nail on AdBlock, UBlock Origin, Ghostery, NoScript etc., specifically to prevent this kind of crap, crass presumption. It doesn't take a mindreader (Mozilla's or otherwise) to work that out, shirley.
What would a search for "coffin nail" now return?
Re: But then comes the big problem: the bill.
Other way round, please. Who's going to PAY for fixes when hospitals suffer attacks?
+1 - it's also a wonderful thing to get away from Samsung's bloatware. Makes the S3 almost a pleasure to use.
I think all one needs to do is
"and limited learning ability"
It IS blond, after all
There ARE PLENTY of users THAT stupid

You unutterable BASTARDS!
All of you!

Re: Are you spying on us?
And us. We're rebranding - AND being all "digitised". Heck, we've got Orifice365, Shouty sorry, Yammer and intranet applications that are about as quick as a duck swimming through concrete after it has set and as comprehensible a an EU directive
What about "leverage" as a verb?
One rather hopes Google has stamped on that
Re: Oh dear
Just watch the film "Idiocracy" - and think of Trump's America.

Helium is tricksy stuff if I recall correctly.
So, How Long does it take for the helium to bleed out?

Re: Also does the censor program...
Gartner has predicted a backlash.
Dear Gartner. It started years ago
Thanks for floating this with us
I'll get my coat. Just plucking it out of the air.
Random Number Generator - at least is the unending stream of comments about their billing and customer service on Social Media is to be believed.
A couple of family members have had to endure the unmitigated disaster that is Vodafone. Based on the evidence so far I believe the throttling is yet another manifestation of Vodafone's barrelling incompetence, rather than malice.*
I thank $deity of choice that i am not with them myself.
* though I wouldn't put it past them to be dabbling in that as well.
Unfortunately being thick enough to give pairs of short planks a run for their money doesn't help.
Re: We've got modern technology now, how about an official bong app?
Isn't there a bell end that keeps tweeting already?
I recall an incident some years past, in which Mrs Marmite and I were looking round Hallgrimmskirkja (Big and very impressive church in the outskirts of Reykjavik, Iceland). We had ventured up the tower and were admiring the view from just under the bells. Our timing was a little bit off (or perfect - depends on one's point of view), as we had arrived on the floor just as time was approaching the top of the hour.
Now, Mrs Marmite is a seasoned bellringer but it still frit the shit out of her when the bloody big bell above her head gave its first godalmighty bong. A most impressive reaction ensued, in which both feet left the ground together
One got a severe arsekicking for laughing one's head off.
As a sidenote: Hallgrimmskirkja is a perfect example of how great a concrete building CAN look, as much as Coventry Cathedral isn't. The organ is pretty impressive too - looks like something off Star Wars. Must go again sometime

As opposed to "making America grate"
words, words, random letters
We’ll be reaching out to the US Army
What's wrong with just: " We’ll be ASKING the US Army" - unless you are an HR consultancy reject.
For some reason that quite made me chuckle and I can't understand why
I'm off out
One has to wonder
How do you know about Arabian Stallions or their dildos?
How do you know about strawberry flavoured lubricant and that it comes in tubs?

Re: Have you read the blurb on their blog?
Whadya mean "Buzzword Bingo" The word "leverage" wasn't used ONCE in any context, let alone as a verb. The announcement was obviously writtem by a rank amateur.
"both leveraged insecure SMBv1 shares"
Please, can we stop the reject HR consultant buzz-speak? Whats wrong with "both used insecure SMBv1 shares"?

Fanfold paper hurts
Ah yes, long time sinceupon I worked on high speed line printers. One was test run but without the tinsel thingy on the paper exit. Picked up a wedge of printout with one hand, went to flick the perforations with the other to get the tear off started and got one hell of a belt. Data 100 that was, in Hemel Hempstead. Part of CDC, if I recall correctly. <waves at any old lags>
