the infamous Stroustrup 'interview'
Re: Yeah - but if I am a "common criminal" I'll definitely find another non-indiegogo to pawn
how do these differ from 24x7 mutts?
Comey does appear to have been a somewhat dangerous, out of control individual in a position of great power who abused his position. Mayben Donald learnt from him?
Let me commend this BBC 'Secret World' sketch (from several years ago) that includes William Hague (Tory politician) running a corner shop - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03kv277
and those nice people at the FBI only charge a percentage of the money recovered to cover their costs.... They even take it out of your account autimatically. Now that is service.
How did the Heron get in to access the fish tank?

The TSA (in the US) don't need more encouragement.
Oh, Shanna. Get out while you still can
before you are committed for fraud.
However, he said, law enforcement needs access to the “data they need”, and added that he wouldn't go into the technical details.
There is are many reasons why the the twat won't go into techical details.....
And despite the lack of hardware announcements – sorry, no augmented reality goggle
And no decent keyboards that don't fain at the slightest hint of dust either......

I don't think so although the phrase does seem familiar - probably a Douglas Adams quote :-)

That surely depends on whether the designer was a Star Wars fan or hater?
Re: Teslas don't LIKE firetrucks
Was the fire engine painted yellow?
I suspect that this is just part of an ongoing Amazon rearguard action on being forced to gather tax where it is due. Basing a levied tax on the shipping address really can not be that difficult and generally very reasonable.
It did eventually (and occasionally)

Re: keeping the water out
And taking the Underround story a little further.
When trains were updated, the maximum dimensions were calculated (important in tunnels :-)
Then new trains were designed to conform with the maximum. Unfortunately when the original train/tunnel pairs were designed, engineers had realised that they could push air through the tunnels to improve air quality. This was something that does not seem to have been documented (or the origibnal documents were not read correctly). The new designs, while not hitting tunndels were also far less efficient at the 'push' and air conditioning needed to be installed/upgraded to make up for it, at some considerable expense.
Interesting analogies with modern IT systems and requirements capture & analysis.

It might be more accurate.
Re: The more I listen to the EU...
Not really - just any business that wishes to do business within the EU
Re: Security is critical, but
I would not be covncinced of that - culpability goes beyond simply informing management, and where the federal authorities are concerned you might be in trouble,
Quite - a toaster is generally quite compact - althogth YMMV on their ability to toast and not burn.
Apparently a toaster-oven is a thing. I had to Google exactly what though.
About the size of a microwave, give or take.
well even with my 4 slice toaster it is an awful lot smaller than an oven (say small mirowave) - say 50% reductiuon in dimensions). That makes a lot of difference if you are lofting it out of planet (which obvioulsy also a major factor - but then only size is mentioned in the headline). My oven will toast but it is massive!
Re: No Char
Of course the problem is that the average Bratwurst is also pretty crap...
As do those on my ICL OPD
Re: No need for a shark
You might want to equip it with roller skates for the living toom though. (and maybey a muzzle and waterlung)
well take out the even more and you hit the spot....
Re: As long is there's no third party
Goernment == state agencies == (often) criminals == (frequently) Ad industry == (sometime) 'perverts'
In a phone interview, Jeff Talbot, public affairs officer for the Washington County Sheriff's Office, which has also been testing Rekognition, said while it's difficult to make a definitive statement about system accuracy because every photo fed into the system is different, the technology has proven to be useful.
"Anecdotally, we have made a number arrests based on this software in the last year," he said, citing various low-level offenses.
And in a quick statement summarises why the analysis of evidence should inlude at least a few experts :-) It's difficult, but anecdotal evidence supports our case. Really.....
Re: No Headphone Jack, No Sale
Well as I have happily given up a tangled life for wireless headphones, the lack of a headphone socket (accumulates dirt) doesn't worry me - although I agree that many people would want to konow.
Ahh - the 'hit it with a big hammer' approach to sensitive hardware
This has always struck me as odd because my own loos at home are notable for their lack of written instructions.
Ohh I think you might be missing a trick. I have a small bookshelf in mine - short stories in the main naturally, but War and Peace for the truly challenged.
Re: carriers sell the data to services
limited definition of the 'individual' though - they can not be jailed or given ther death sentence though (I might even support it for some corpoations)
Or read 70's kids comics (in the UK)
Well in the UK at least surely they are covered for this (other than accidental damage) under the sale of goods act for rather longer than Applecare?

I would suggest one of those chairs with a convenient opening on the seat (and a suitable receptacle below) - but that only if he had any shame

Oh and that *would* go on fire if the paper jammed.
One of HPs experimental high speed inkjet printers (never got into production as I saw it) was rechristened 'SteamJet' - and it did.

While the idea of sea mines probably invokes that scene in cult classic film Hot Fuzz**
I don't think so - at least not to anyone with any slightly broader knowledge.
Yes, with enough force, you could get them into the drive the wrong way round, it was damned hard work...
It goes along with many things. My much abused battery in an (old) MBP was misbehaving a little. I asked our admin to get it replaced. Not quite understanding the battery catch (as I said an old Macbook) she decided to use a screwdriver to help it out. She was extremelty competent in most things and certainly worth while bailing out.
The replacement machiune was 'siezed' by de Kops (I was away at the time and I never got an adequate explanation - even a plausible one) as to why our personal machines were searched. Being away, for, again, reasons that remain murkey even new (it was only 10 years ago), no one asked for or demanded a password or even tried to ask me. However they obviously decided that trying to clone or at least look at the disk (encrypted anyway). Some plod did the same thing - assuming the battery was a disk. Hum de hum. Obviously embarassed they paid up for my and five other machines with similar case smtoms without a peep.
Almost unbelievable... And the f***ing things even had screws to dissasemble them then.
Securing 1,437 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) “Probable Cause” Court Orders that would allow electronic surveillance, of approximately 1,337 targets, 299 of them Americans;
12,762 National Security letters that would allow investigators to obtain phone, credit, or financial records;
33 authorisations to use electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes;
77 requests for business records
Ok, so that deals with Trump, his administration and associates. Now what about the rest of the US?
