Who decides what is harmful and when? If it is legal it should be publishable. If it is harmful it should be explicitly illegal. 'Legal but Harmful' is an open door to ban anything the group currently in power (or in power in the future) don't like.

Re: Start Stop
I'm always worried that stop start causes extra engine wear.
All those finely ground bearings require a certain amount of oil pressure to protect and cushion them from the huge forces of exploding petrol / diesel (enough to move a ton or two of car rather briskly) and also stop them moving metal to metal. The pressure is created by pumps driven off the engine (actually part thereof) and dissipates when the engine stops. So every time you start it there is extra wear. This becomes much worse if you load the engine before oil pressure has had chance to build e.g. from a "clutch down - start - go" cycle.
Start stop is really a bit of a con. Its greenwash for the motor industry to show government that they are reducing the emissions from their vehicles, while at the same time hiding that they are consuming more resources.

Re: Actually, I've found Virgin to be pretty good.
Mine was Eruobell then Telewest vefore it became Virgin. I just have the slow connection so that 100Mbits Down 10Mbits Up. It usually exceeds this. I have never had a problem I needed to call them about so can't comment on customer service. The price is a bit steep though.
She is a Doctor not a data scientist. This article says nothing about her fitness to be a GP. It just shows that specialisms should be left to specialists. The whole argument is specious. Assumption should never be taken as consent. e.g. 'I assumed you consented to give me access to your bank account'
I am not sure I agree with you there. If you swap hydrocarbons for electricity you'll need an awful lot of the stuff.
Currently there are 31.7 million cars and 4.2 million LGVs on uk roads according to the rac foundation.
Average EV battery capacity is 62kWh(apparently).
Given not all of these will need to charge every night let's say half. That is still 982GWh of electricity on top of what we currently use. I doubt we will have the generation capacity for that and our European allies will not be able to top us up, as they do each winter, because they will be struggling too.

Re: Is that right?
Sorry I don't get your point..?
There are 2 cars lets call them L and W.
L is unlocked and has the keys in the ignition.
W is locked and the keys are far away.
They can both be stolen but which is vulnerable?
Yes, you could pick the locks, or smash a window, but I know which theft my insurance would pay out on.

Re: The future is behind you ....
Actually, radio is inherently analogue. Even when you have created your digital multiplex you still transmit it using an analogue process because those radio waves are um... waves. How much simpler to just modify, say, the amplitude or frequency of one of those waves.
For AM all I need is an oscillator and an amplifier. Feed in the signal I want to transmit to vary how big the output is and Robert is your mother's brother.
For PWM its even simpler because I only need to transmit two states (big wave & small wave at the same frequency)
For FM I just control the frequency of the oscillator with the signal I want to transmit. This is very wasteful of bandwidth, which is why it is restricted to VHF.
No Computer. No complicated electronics. To transmit a DAB Mux I need all the stuff you mentioned PLUS one of the above analogue processes.

The BlackBerry in your junk drawer is now a collectors' item: TCL says no more new keyboard-clad phones
Boo Hoo :.(
This makes me very sad. All I really want is a replacement for my Q10 but a bit quicker and supported by apps. Just got a Nokia 7.2. Its a great phone but I miss the keyboard and it doesn't fit in my pocket.
Hopefully, when TCL's contract is up Blackberry will re-enter the market with a real iPhone killer.....but I'm not holding my breath.

I completely disagree with you on the failure of these computers. They did really well when the curriculum was about teaching programming. The change to MS-DOS came with Windows 3.1 and a change to teaching how to use Microsoft Word and Excel.Ostensibly because these were skills relevant to business, but I suspect because the kids were better programmers than the people trying to teach them.
I'm seriously falling out with the idea of a smartphone. I have constantly upgraded to get more features and different ways of connecting to things.
First it was a small phone. Then synchronizing calendars, contacts and To Dos over a wire.
Then email and integration with Exchange and cloud services. All this costs me money in data plans and roaming charges
Now I'm seriously thinking about having a phone thats just a phone. Small, light, battery that lasts for a week or so between charges and only pay for the (tiny number of) calls and texts that I use.
I have a tablet which can handle all the other stuff on WiFi I don't need to pay for. Why do I need a smartphone?
Re: Pathetic lawsuit
That is not what he said, or really what the law suit is about. Samsung have copied the look and feel of the iDevices, and he said he likes the design elements of Apple devices enough to shell out his hard earned.
If you look into it, everything that Apple have innovated already existed before, and they copied it. What Apple are really great at is packaging other peoples' innovations in products people want to buy.
