Think it could be simpler
to build a smartphone flip case with a bluetooth keyboard embedded in the front cover. OK so two batteriess but more choice of phone etc.

Well, that would be an employee benefit. Lots of companies have them (free gym membership, health car etc.) No VAT fraud there but you are meant to declare the value of the benefit as it is taxed (PAYE) as income. How much toilet paper can you get through? Seems there are more important tax frauds going on.
> By the way Jimmy Savile was never charged with anything, does that mean he was never guilty of anything ?
Yes, in the criminal law sense. But there as been an enquiry which pretty much wiped out any doubt that he would have been found guilty were he alive.
Dead bodies don't get tried because 1) they can't defend themselves and that would weaken the legal system if that was allowed, 2) they can't be punished in any way 3) they would smell worse than the judges

It should be backed up somewhere, possibly a disk/tape/usb-stick in a fire-proof safe. If the key is pass-phrase protected the pass-phrase should be backed up too (post-it note stuck to the back of the picture of the queen you have in your office).
Absolutely, that's why embassies have their special legal status - to protect the citizens of the embassy country from being persecuted by the host country if they disagree with the host country's policies.
Under the established protocols in a spat the embassy staff are told to leave. If they didn't have that protection they would end up in prison or executed and no-one would want to be a diplomat.
The Ecuadorians are perfectly within their rights to shelter Mr Assange for as long as they like but as he is not a diplomat he cannot get to Ecuador under their protection. Instead he will have to leave and be arrested or die in the embassy. I'm fine with either as a Brit that believes he has skipped bail and should serve jail time for that.
About time to ditch Moore's law. It was invented by Intel and used as a stick to beat the competition into submission but it is trumped by Scotty's law "Ya cannae break the laws of physics Jim".
It's not a law, rather an observation of past performance. I could come up with a law that states the Dow-Jones must rise by 10% every 3 years but it wouldn't make it happen forever, nor should it be a goal.
As a Christian I am offended by the complainers. They don't represent me and so don't deserve to label themselves (apart from uptight wankers). I don't take my religion too seriously, God I do, but the church and the people who work for it don't get any special respect.
What would Jesus have done? Probaly that's why there is a bite taken out of the lovely item.
Agreed it's bass-akwards. I'm contracting at Cambium and their many of their wireless backhaul products have a POE enabled extra port to allow the customer to add a video camera pointing down the mast so you can see who is climbing up to steal the kit.
It operates just like VHS or DAT tape with guard bands between the overlapping tracks so you don't have to write the whole of the rest of the disk when you change a block. You do have to rewrite the rest of the disk up to the next guard band though so that's why it's no good for random writes. I guess the host managed part is to manage the bands of overlapping tracks in a virtual way so as to not limit it to behaving exactly as a tape.
Be interesting to know if they fake read-after-write checking. Difficult to read just behind the write head without picking up the field from the write head and fooling yourself into thinking the media is written correctly. Any further behind (like a second head on another arm) and you have to manage the rewrites that occur. Bit like turning around a ship.
