It's a Xaiomi, so the OS will be MIUI, basically a near vanilla recent Android build with extremely regular updates.

Sure, we made your Wi-Fi routers phone home with telemetry, says Ubiquiti. What of it?
Re: another workaround to this
There's also an annoying problem that if you trigger a firmware update from the controller, their access points don't update and just stay disconnected until you reset them if they don't have a NATed connection on their default (not VLAN) interface.
Discovered this the obvious way.
Great news, cask beer fans: UK shortage of CO2 menaces fizzy crap taking up tap space
Weirdly if the beer is flat, it's most commonly caused by scale deposits picked up in the glass from the glasswasher.
Beer recipies have continuallyt changed over the years (eg. since 2011, the strength of a lot of them have gone down and some have been reformulated to used a mixed gas instead of pure CO2).
To prevent the most common cause of flat beer, the glass washer needs to be regularly cleaned, a water softener needs to be fitted which needs regenerating or regular maintenance (depending on type), especially in hard water areas.
(It doesn't help the weird idea that a lot of bar staff have, that if you want a pint to be fizzy, they need to beat all the gas out of it whilst they're pouring it).

A simple HTML tag will crash 64-bit Windows 7
This all seems familiar.
I remember about 12 years ago a small bit of html that put 4 iframes in a page that referred to itself, managed to take down a Windows 98 machine, a Sun OS machine and a Solaris machine, only machine I tested it on that didn't die was an HP-UX machine running netscape. (The netscape process died).

10Mbit Upstream Trial taking the Mickey
It does take the mickey a bit having 10Mbit upstream and 200Mbit downstream trials, when in some areas 2000 premises are sharing 9Mbit (total) upstream.
They should fix their network before trying to dazzle people with pretty headlines and waving their collective willys at BT.
Dell accidentally sells 140,000 monitors for $15 a pop
Not if there is a disclaimer, something along the lines of advertised prices represent an offer of service and do not constitude a contract of sale etc.
I remember a similar thing happening years ago, where the machine cabe with a 19in CRT screen, if you downgraded to a 17in screen £35 was taken off the price, if you downgraded to 2 x 17in screens, £70 was taken off the price.

Did TomTom test Microsoft's Linux patent lock-down?
Big FAT patent ....
How secure is MS's patent in this respect anyway?
I can't for the life of me remember what it's called but there is a principle in IP law that states that you can't enforce a patent that is designed to fit a product (like you can't enforce the notion of a jacket).
This was used against Nokia when it tried to protect it's patent on snap-on covers.
Surely if the codebase for FAT support doesn't come from Microsoft, then it is merely made to fit an MS product and the patent isn't enforceable.
Or am I missing something?

Wired Car Kit, To the E61i owner
I am also a happy e61i user (well I'll be happier if the battery lasted longer), It's worth noting that the lack of a POP port does not stop anyone being able to make a cradle for it.
The E62 only has a USB port on it, and with the correct kit can be used with a nokia car kit.
Although in all honesty, the sound quality of our (nokia) bluetooth kit is as good as any wired car kit I've tried.
