Also in the its not new camp
I seem to recall that BeOS had this and being impressed at the time as to what a useful idea it was
To use "Go!" by Public Service Broadcasting as their music, would have been awesome
"Sadly for those hoping it's an alien probe"
I thought you got those after you were abducted!
ah the costs of buying abroad
Rather than helping out UK ship and airframe builders
and key recovery when a user forgets the password to decrypt a laptop.
Well normally 'they' have kept your plain text password in an unencrypted file or database to allow 'them' to do this
Re: Chrome Desktop App
Many thanks for the tip, useful for other sites too, I was just going to suggest detaching the tab, but this feature I had not see before is v nice

Is still American date format, just not MM-DD-YYYY and is still an abomination
As ever, only useful on the desktop to windows and mac types, lets hope rclone and insync keep working as alternatives
This would have been the smartest move, to re-introduce simple tariffs like that, but there are no plans in the pipeline, no plans for instant payments, just the 'budget' plans that help the electric companies more than the consumers
Re: Kids, eh?
Surely you can just say to the computer running the mail client. So you only need a good SSH and terminal app
weighs 45 pounds
wow, seems excessive for a LED screen what is essentially the same size as 2 normal monitors
$9B for only 5M users, no one is going to make that money back!
Re: Please keep it simple
I hope its an 8 track!
Re: Software properly written for Windows 2000 would work on 7 and later without issue.
Its just developers; being pressured to fix the problem rather than providing a solution is a way of life for developers, companies do not want to hear that I can patch in 1 day or fix for the future in 3 months, beancounters etc will always go for the 1 day patch. There is no longer a 5 year plan, or a 3 year one, hardly even a 1 year one, everyone is agile fixing what is in front of them right now!
Not not going to get any easier
If a third party that has an interest in getting a particular political party into office then they too can do advertising, this may not need to be tracked as gifts and payments to the party, so potential for lots of abuse of the system - as the Observer/Guardian article shows happened with Brexit targeted adverts. Not sure how this can be avoided or made illegal, we are all entitled to our voice, if I happen to have more money than someone else then I can force my voice to be heard in more places and more loudly.
Don't forget this is not just FB and twitter, all those tracking fake news articles that get linked from almost all websites as well as the news companies themselves are included by this type of activity, even having ad blockers and such like makes it difficult to get away from it.
There are plenty of apps that give you a terminal and the ability to 'run' a linux environment, try https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.termux, plenty more available, some require root and some do not. Not all linux tools are available, certainly not GUI ones, but some can then be run within Xvnc or similar, a reasonable smattering of command line tools are available, perl, python, vi etc. However there is limited access to storage, which does make some things more difficult.
Definitely worth a few hours of investigation/play
Is that a projection or do they know the future?
essentially regulate almost all computers
and computer type equipment
good luck with that!
Mix of google/facebook
Surely its apple?
New tariffs is said to be a benefit
From the smart meter website
Innovative energy tariffs Using the data collected on when and how households are using energy, suppliers can create more competitive time-of-use tariffs with cheaper prices for off-peak use.
We used to have this, it was called economy 7, worked great, cheap electric at night for washing machines and storage heaters etc
The other benefit is the end to estimated bills, never used to be a problem, if they got it wrong I would ring up and get it changed to an accurate read bill
Less dark matter/energy
If there is more real stuff, then there must be less of the unreal stuff then?
costs us millions
Surely she means costs us billions?
Available in the UK
It would seem like it is anyway, they have a UK accessories page for it (in the article) as well as having a pre-order page http://shop.samsung.com/uk/galaxy-note7-black/.
Shame I don't have any spare cash
PIN number, its just PIN or do the printers have helpful LCD displays on them too?
Re: Actually in many cases
I'm thinking that this solution is not targetted at you, but at all the others who have different requirements and abilities to solve them
Poor keyboard support
Does not like a UK keyboard @ for starters, then tab ordering is not respected, if they cannot manage the basics, then I am not surprised that more complex sites do not work
One to watch but not use, for ages maybe
Though if you are wanting to use your phone for VR, then more pixels is a benefit. VR on the one plus range is blocky at best
I would like to know
how well electric cars manage driving down flooded roads, how deep water can I go through etc
And suddenly their minds go
“They’re at a point when they’re often outperforming the boys and somehow in their minds they go, ‘this isn’t for me’.”
So its the girls fault? Rather than teachers/parents suggesting that science and technology are not areas to be studied by girls?
aliens sending messages
may be easier than gravity waves
icon, cos it matches
Mods/add-ons don't work
For consumer experience, if I buy a £600 phone and then add on £400 of extra projector, camera etc and then find that in 2 years time they will not work with my next phone I will be a bit annoyed. Hence people are a bit wary of buying into this tech
A tech startup called Shittr
That must exist, surely?
Maybe for a bluetooth or wifi connected chamber pot to analyse ones stools?
Re: Gaffa tape
Surely for problem callers, they always have the carpet tape ready to hand.
And the carpet of course, and the bag of lime, shovel etc
Now we have Pi Zero
for £4 is this device still relevant, sure it has a bit of bluetooth and some LEDs and is lower power, but is that enough to convince schoolkids that they should become software developers or electronic design types?
Can we have some for Wales and Scotland please
Surely the telcos want to get on board and properly give 100% area coverage rather than 95% people coverage
Maybe google are not good at searching
in google search google "data processing business" gives 19700 results
in bing search google "data processing business" gives 2.8 million results
Re: UI design
There are many andoid forks, some are supported by manufacturers, who generally will not do it themselves due to the cost.
Cyanogenmod, Oxygen (from oneplus), AOSP etc are ones that can be easily found
They too cannot provider reverse paths to copies
Down-scaling a lossless image format, will lose information and the original cannot be rebuilt
The Readers Digest organisation is going to be in for a lot of trouble
Still does not compete on price
Why would I get this, rather than a £4 raspberrypi zero plus a bit more when you factor in a SD card or get a standard arduino?
In many cases the power draw is not such a big issue, the ease of software development is.
Also falls into this category, free to use, though not free to get their code, yet, they suggest that at some point it will be properly open
https://telegram.org for those who cannot google
Those chicken snacks are nasty
Really, you are better off skipping that part of the in-flight food
Re: One way mirrors
I thought pilots all wore 'cool' mirrored sunglasses anyway
Lock based on bluetooth proximity
Surely thats not a feature? This is in the realm of additional software to add to your system, not a feature of a the laptop itself.
Blueproximity works well on all my linux systems already
Ah floppy disk stories
I used to write software for pharmacies, in the old days and this all ran along with the data on 5.25 inch floppies.
When asked to send in a copy of their disks we often got photocopies of the disks or a floppy disk stapled to a covering letter, obviously right through the disk itself, just to make sure! Other disks came in glued together with paint, glue and who knows what, also the backup disks that have never been used and so blank were sent in to be used for data recovery and disks stored next to their TVs or CRT screens.
USB drives are not as much fun.
Getting my coat cos its almost knocking off time
Could contain the plasma, no need for filaments. Would be hard to get the field into a nice cylinder though
Nearest thing to a light sabre icon
Which Government gets the keys
If back doors were somehow enabled to give the government access whose government would it be? Yours, mine, USA, UK, France, Germany, Russia, Egypt etc.
Obviously these would be shared between friendly governments but the friend of my friends government may not be my friend. For starters google, apple, microsoft etc would have to hand over all their keys to pretty much every government in the world.
Re: meaningless buzzword soup
The is no 'F' in team either, in most cases where people raise the 'I' comment
Sorry we slurped all your data for a while
But we've switched it off again now.
We may share it with our friends in the NSA if they ask for it or maybe they already asked for it and this is how we collected it!
Potential for the conspiracy people to have a field day with this, though as ever human failures are the most likely cause
But then, if you buy one of the other pi's (or beagle bone etc) then you have to buy them then too.
You buy them when you buy your new desktop computer or monitor too, though often the price is hidden in the overall price of what you buy.
A list of people who should be onsite fixing the issues. Some of the workers sure, not all of them and certainly none of the management getting in the way asking is it fixed yet!
Had this happen a few years back, massive fire took out most of the factory, the recovery crew was 30 odd of our 250+ staff, none of the directors were allowed on site as it was essential staff only and they would not be contributing to the actual recovery actions.
Flame icon, cos thats what happened
