How is buying 5g equipment from a Swedish company supposed to benefit America?
You didn't think this through Uncle Donald.

Has anyone got any comments on using in-screen fingerprint sensors?
How do people used the front sensors? Just tapping it to check the time while leaving the phone on the table?
I find the one on the back of my current phone very easy to use one-handed. Picking up the phone and once it's in a usable position the fingerprint scanner is in a 'natural' position for my index finger to touch the pad. Of course if I then need to do something useful I need to touch the screen anyway.
While I'd like a launch tower to go with my Lego Saturn V I don't think I'll be getting one of these.
I'm not a Lego* fan and the Saturn V was the first Lego model I'd ever made aside from a very small Star Wars Land Speeder.
I was most impressed with the internal structure of the Saturn V. I know the fuel tanks were probably only there to add structural strength to the model but as I say, I was impressed.
This tower doesn't look like it has a 'wow' factor. Just a slog of clipping girders together. That was the reason I didn't get the ISS model.
* It's not the fault of Lego. I just don't have the ability to knock-up anything from my imagination. Minecraft is something of a dark art too.
"You never ever ate the peanuts on a bar for good reason."
Pah! That's just a rumour spread by men so they can eat all the peanuts without worrying about women pinching them.
I can't actually remember the last time I was in a bar with free peanuts on the counter.
Does Beverley Pilkington still appear on the display boards?
"Keeping with Dell tradition, the device is highly configurable "
Nope, I can't get a number pad on the XPS that otherwise took my fancy. HP's Envy are the same. Just the spec I want but no numeric pad.
I can live without the optional travel case and compact charger but I want numbers to the right of my keyboard!
"they want to believe that they can Beat The System."
YOU can beat the system and I can show you how.
Have you ever looked at successful people and wondered how they got where they are when they are less talented and capable than you?
I used to be like you; hard working and talented but going nowhere fast. Until one day a friend 'in the know' told me the three easy steps to success and untold riches. The three easy steps I can now reveal to the world for the FIRST time.
Send for my book 'How to Take Money from Those Who Don't Deserve to Have It'
Follow to the letter the easy 3 step instructions inside.
Watch the money roll in.
Send a postal order for 4 pounds 11 shillings to this address......
Don't delay....This offer won't last forever.
I've downloaded the Android version and have received the update, presumably to add the missing test feature.
As for whether it does the job it was build for is another matter. There's no indication if you've been in bluetooth range of another phone. Probably not an essential feature but I'd like to know if my phone has been handshaking with others.
As for it draining the battery, I turn the Contract Tracing bit off when I'm at home or otherwise segregated from the great unwashed.
I can't see nVidia being too worried about this. They sold all their cards in a few seconds. Isn't that the business they're in?
As for 'fans' wanting to pay £40,000+ for one. Write out 40,000 times 'I must learn to be patient'.
(Yes, there are 21 bids for a graphics card that costs more than a new Jaguar F-Pace.)
I flew my Viper MkIII out to see the Voyager probes. The game has them farther out than in real life due to it (the game) being set in the future.
Even at many times the speed of light it takes a rather long and boring time to get to them from Earth. Strange to think you can 'hyperspace' in seconds to the nearest star system to save you the bother of the long haul back to Earth.
I played the video at slow speed and it looked to me as if it was the eyelet the lock was connected to that broke off.
Why didn't he wave the broken padlock in front of the camera? Most YT videos take 20 minutes just to say 'hello'.
Still. Bluetooth 'security' for a padlock.
But, but, but it's DANGEROUS!!!!!
You can't expect a council to condone anything DANGEROUS!!!!!
How would they explain to the grieving relatives of some stupid arse who got himself or herself (or its-self) mown down that it was just a bit of fun? Councils aren't there for fun.
I read the online version and yes, they do a healthy line in criticising the Government. They also have a number of partisan feminist writers who come out to play at the weekend.
I expect to read several articles about our favourite Baroness (and that's surely a 'sexist' title these days) defending her from the brickbats thrown by males commentators.
Three hundred quid? Bleedin' 'ell! That'll get you a decent 8k capable graphics card.
I can't get my head around people wanting to play 8-bit graphics games. I can remember the disappointment of what appeared on screen as compared to the illustration on the box. 'So the red and blue blocks are supposed to be Superman, and that green square is Jimmy Olsen?'
I think I'll give this a miss and spend £200 on a graphics card and the rest on a nice Scotch whisky.
A friend of mine did some DJing in the late 1970s and he was in possession of a rather impressive power amp. I possessed some rather inferior domestic lo-fi speakers.
In the interests of science we sacrificed the speakers by turning up the amp power until the speaker coil burned out.
I'd have to agree that clipping is more dangerous to speakers because they made a hell of a lot of noise before melting. As in 'I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW LOUD THESE SPEAKERS ARE!' 'WHAT DID YOU SAY?'
Good job but I prefer the look of the original. This one needs a bit of a steampunk makeover. (Or cyberpunk. Or WWII punk?)
I was going to ask if anyone knew how it came to be called 'bombe' but I got off my lazy arse and googled it.
But you can still support them in these totally non-discriminatory ways
"More and better internal career development and coaching programs for women
Putting in place resources and opportunities specifically for women, such as reserving training and research money for female scientists, as a way to make jobs more attractive to women."
My favourite camera brand gone to the great darkroom in the sky. *sob*.
I can still remember holding an OM1 in a camera shop in the early 1970's. Compared to the Exakta RTL1000 I was toting around the OM was like a tiny jewel. I didn't get an OM1 because by the time I'd saved up the OM2 was out and that became my first OM.
(I did get an OM1 a few years back from the Tat-Market. It was sold as for spares because the mirror was jammed up. Not jammed but the mirror lock switch had been turned and was performing as it should. )
