Imagine how low unemployment would be without those immigrants stealing British jobs
Great isn't it.
There are important stories on sims being hacked by spy agencies and laptops being sold being sold with pre-installed malware.
What does the BBC trust us to comment on? Pictures of food.
So Rory's problem with email is, primarily, unwanted content?
I have to put up with Ads I don't want to see when watching TV and listening to the radio. Are TV and radio broken?
I have to put up with junk mail coming through my letterbox. Is the postal service broken?
I have to put up with Rory's articles. Is the BBC News site broken?
Since the advent of engine immobilisers thieves can not longer "hot wire" cars to steal them. Instead they break into the owner's home to steal the keys, often threatening or assaulting the owner to obtain them.
A crook who has no objection to roughing up a car owner to get his keys will have little objection to taking a penknife to someone to obtain their implanted chip.
Seriously bad idea!!
"Can anyone point me towards a good technology column"
"This is about a communication tool being taken away from people who need it"
Yes, for 40 MINUTES!
Nobody is going to die if they can't use Facebook for 40 minutes. I use Facebook, it can be a useful tool, but the world would not end if it disappeared and never came back.
Some people (and reporters) need to get some perspective.
Oooh, Facebook down for 40 mins. Armageddon approaches!!
How about reporting on something that is both more serious and interesting? What about the changes China has made to their "Great Firewall" that has been using a flaw in the DNS system to redirect requests to other sites and, in some cases, bringing them down:
Can someone please explain why my teeth are different to every other part of my body?
If I develop a problem with any other part of my body I visit my doctor and it gets treated "free at the point of use" on the NHS.
If I get a problem with my teeth it's time to remortgage the house as I cannot find an NHS dentist, and even if I could its still expensive.
I see the Ministry of Truth is waving the ban-stick with it's usual zealousness.
There is more to technology, even IT, than smartphones, tablets and "social media".
Someone please tell Rory
Serle was a fool, Nosey Matrron. His Chinese room intended to debunk the idea of machine intelligence, but in showing that you couldn't tell tthe difference between real self awareness and a simulation, he only succeeded in showing it didn't matter. If it looks like a duck and behaves like a duck, it IS a duck.
A lot of people posting references to sci-fi tales of evil AI. Take a look at Frank Herbert's Dune, where compuers are outlawed and most people live miserable lives subjugated by an elite ruling class, or Ian M Banks "Culture", where people want for nothing in a society where artificial life (Drones and Minds) live in benevolent harmony with us. I know which I'd prefer.
There appears to be a lot of confusion about what is meant by AI. It does not mean "self aware", nor does it mean "Artificial life". It can mean no more than the ability to make decisions based on statistical analysis. Driverless cars are barely closer to beecoming self aware than a house brick.
The stupidity of our Government and our esteemed Home Secretary never ceases to amaze me These two were known to MI5, yet they did nothing with the excuse that there was too much data. What do they now propose, gathering even MORE data on EVERYONE.
Obviously the best way to find terrorist needles is to create thousands of new haystacks, rather than lookin in haystacks MI5 already know they are in
I wouldn't trust a 'kipper to run a bath, let alone the country.
***" who, but a very sad hipster, would stuff a huge phone into his impossibly tight jeans and sit on it?"[RCJ]
As opposed to the regularly sad hipsters who rush out and buy overpriced Apple gear WITHOUT the tight jeans?
FYI, have often accidentally sat on my Note II ( which looks almost identical to a 6 Plus BTW) when I forgot it was in the back pocket of my not-so-tight jeans to no ill effect.
How about the "Technology Correspondent" actually reporting on technology?
This is like a motoring correspondent reporting on choosing the best supermarket.
Hoping for a "Yes" vote.
I certainly don't want more of my tax £ going north of the border due to the Three Stooges' pathetic bribe attempt, and I can enjoy Salmond's discomfiture as everything falls apart around him with a satisfying sense of schadenfreude.
I used to be in favour of Scotland staying in the Union but this latest attempt by Cameron, et al, to bribe the Scots with MY taxes has changed my mind.
If this bribe is what it takes to stay, then I'd rather you went and took Salmond with you.
So good of the BBC to allow us to comment issues of such world shattering importance.
People like to talk, discuss and argue about current affairs. These "new" methods of obtaining news give them give them the opportunity to do this.
"Traditional" outlets like the BBC deliberately stifle discussion (why IS the BBC only enabling comments on the most bland and inane articles?), so is it any surprise that people are moving away from them?
Wow! Most of the spaces in my local area cost more than the local authority car parks, and aren't as conveniently located.
Good for people wanting a safe place to park their shiny new Jag, etc, but not a lot of use for most people.
Nice to see the BBC is letting us comment on the really important stories again, by the way...............
Do the BBC realise there are "smart glasses" other than Google's?
Welcome to the Streisand effect.
A well known and well documented phenomenon on the World Wide Web where any attempt to remove or censor information merely results in it being more widely known.
Tools like the Xamarin platform and Forms are advancing at quite a pace, enabling developers to build for the main mobile platforms (iOS, Android and Windows Phone) using a single shared codebase (90%+) in a single language (C#).
Is is no longer a choice question of developing for iOs OR Android, you can develop for iOS AND Android).
