US Homeland Security installs AI cameras at the White House, Google tries to make translation less sexist
And the next 7nm laptop processor will be designed by In, er, AM, um, Qualcomm: The 64-bit Arm Snapdragon 8CX
FYI: NASA has sent a snatch-and-grab spacecraft to an asteroid to seize some rock and send it back to Earth
Re: Not actually immortals
Immortal skin is almost here, maybe the rest will follow:
Looking forward to the Great Andromeda Strain Outbreak in 2023 then...
See this, Google? Microsoft happy to take a half-billion in sweet, sweet US military money to 'increase lethality'
They made a pig's ear of that
Other than amazing sound quality, the best thing about (some) Sennheisers is that you can replace any part when it fails. After years of having to throw away great headphones from other manufacturers because of a mysteriously located cable break, or sonically obliterated driver, broken headband, lost and inexplicable tiny plastic part etc... I got some HD600s and haven't looked back.
InSight can drill 16ft! I do hope they drill into a mercury tooth filling, thus confirming humanity's Martian origins:
I'll be impressed when the resolution is high enough to resolve cans of coke and beer on the seabed and plastic bobbing on the surface because Trash>Global Climate Chaos (till it finds a higher state of order which will be less human friendly) is more of a threat to life on earth than any military (Mutually Assured Destruction will never happen).
Re: Yeah but...
With regret, I admit Xiaomi The Money! timing for offering lower price "flagship" imposter phones is good - Android phones are at the arse end of their product life cycle... unless phone designs supply more of what buyers want - whatever that is... or what the big phone manufacturers make them want ("People don't know what they want till they see it" - Steve The Christ) by developing new flip/fold/larger/smaller etc devices, it'll be a battle for the Android sphincter. To extend the product life cycle, Android OS needs to evolve to offer a more effective, desktop-like experience utilising larger screens than it does now. I hope they tank but it's unlikely, Xiaomi The Money! will drive Android phone prices down and probably kill Jesusphone sales.
Xiaomi The Money!
...they completely took the piss by offering a total of "1 or 2" phones for £1 in dodgy nationwide competitions where it was impossible for anyone to win, except "Xiaomi The Money" staff
I hope they sink without a trace
Let's have a look-see, Pure. Sales, up. Staff, growing. Forecasts, beat. Projections, rising. Profit... oh look at the time, gotta run, cya...
I use a SIM router when Virgin Media Fibre craps out and I must say it's nippy even on 4G, reliable too. Also very cheap at £10 a month for "Unlimited" - 6gb full speed (network sharing allowed), the rest at 256k (no network sharing, which is when the SIM goes into the laptop), which is fine for email and general browsing - from Giffgaff (O2 will pull the plug on their Giffgaff brand if it threatens their offerings too much)
Did you hear? There's a critical security hole that lets web pages hijack computers. Of course it's Adobe Flash's fault
"The notoriously vulnerable plugin has long since been surpassed by HTML5"
There's still a lot that Adobe Flash can do which HTML 5 can't, and with less CPU. I just wish Adobe would reprogram Flash from scratch, because any UI design that anyone can dream is/was possible using Flash.
Maybe this one will break the downvote record... Is there a prize?
Re: Giving the vendors a choice will give the users a choice

We asked the US military for its 'do not buy' list of Russian, Chinese gear. Surprise: It doesn't exist
EE, Virgin Media hit with £13.3m fine: Squeezing users for fees for early contract termination not OK
Lol, this guy got stung for £240 after 7 years:
I haven't requested any change from Virgin Media for years and I only use their slowest fibre broadband. They keep upgrading my broadband speed (with a price hike shortly afterwards) every few months.... automatically starting a new 12 month contract, therefore I'm perpetually subject to an early exit fee. Bastards.
Russia has figured out the pattern in large Prime Numbers:
...and they have all your passwords is belong to us now.
Does this have a keypad on the front? It should.
I miss my 9210i, despite feeling like a badly designed and largely ineffectual baton to fend off muggers with, it was a bloody useful all in one portable office at a time when nothing else came close in terms of size... maybe the success of this will prompt Nokia to create a new Communicator.
