The 90s called and want their credit cards back. And my AMEX is 15 digits :-P

> Not quickly enough as for 1/4 second or so you are thinking "is it going to brake? Am I supposed to take over? Oh shit it's not doing to stop"
Almost 3 seconds pass between when the vehicle starts to move across, showing a stationary vehicle in front of it, and when the impact occurs. You may well be late, but any breaking is better than no breaking.
Good alert defensive drivers will get twitchy straight away; those with less experience and more so as they rely on auto-pilot in the future, less so... YMMV :-D
Woosh, there goes the point flying over your head.
The point being the difference between an Opal card valid ticket and an NFC paid valid ticket. The mechanism is exactly the same; the only difference is the the Sydney transport network adhering to the old fashioned requirement to have the whole ticket, which proves nothing. I see that they are catching up with a contactless trial (although they don't do daily/weekly fare capping like TfL do)
So if Mr Cyborg had had a NFC induction loop embedded in his skin and had been travelling on the light rail or ferries, he'd have been totally legal.

Not sure what country you are from TRT, but in the UK I can gain access to the Transport for London network by using contactless payment, and that inlcudes Apple/Google Pay from my phone via NFC. In this situation (which is likely to become more and more common) the actual card is immaterial. To ensure I have paid the valid fare, ticket inspectors scan the method of payment used to ensure there is a transaction. Having said that, if his card was cancelled and he hadn't tapped in, it is academic anyway.
I don't know how serviced offices like WeWork, erm, work. I presumed they mostly provided a desk, power, toilets, heat, networking. Having a monster like that would require either a semi-permanent desk that no one else can use or lugging it away into a cupboard every night, at more expense and effort, so probably not worth keeping it in this case.
> Lets hope that NK has better GUI design than that of the wealthy, technologically superior country that made this mistake. I don't hold much hope; do you, honestly?
The post 1st September 2001 system is actually quite clever given what can be spelled out and the amount of business generated by it, whilst still being similar to the old system. It is claimed that the new system was designed to make it easier to remember registrations in the event of an accident or crime but if I was a suspicious man I would say that whoever came up with it had one eye on the custom sale aspect of it. I can't think of any other comparable European system.
With the charging port tucked round the back, right near the hinge, even with the angled cable, it's a pain in the @rse. I like it though. I like I can check messages without having to get my phone out (at the dinner table) or easily see if whatever notification it is, is worth getting the phone out for. I also like making it a trusted device to smart unlock my phone so I'm not constantly doing it manually.
I have the stainless steel strap and it's a really cr@ppy design which has broken once, took six months to get a replacement from Sony, and now that one is on the way out, and I don't fancy my chances of getting another from them.
About 2km away
"I suspect the manned aircraft numbers are only widely available because there are people who stand at the end of runways counting these things anyway."
Nope. Because of jobs, budgets, shareholders and appearing to take a tough stance, these things are generally published.
"Shows the killing of a policeman as captured by a body camera."
No it doesn't. From the YouTube blurb (did you even read it?):
"Both officers were rushed to a hospital in Greenville, S.C. Police said both received non-life threatening injuries."
In fact, it doesn't even show the shooting and who did it.
You seem to be conflating the issue here. You say he could well be innocent? Innocent of what? Innocent of the suspicion of terrorism? That's not what he's been charged with here. He's been charged with withholding passwords. So, technically, on the face of it he's not innocent; he didn't hand over his passwords when asked and there is a statute in place to prosecute him as a result. Whether that's right or not is another matter.
"An external audit commissioned by Cage of its handling of the Emwazi affair is blunt in exposing the shortcomings of campaigners."
"In opting for a “lengthy argument” rather than a “soundbite” Cage was unsuccessful in “clearly articulat[ing] its distance from Emwazi’s actions to prevent any portrayal of them as ‘apologists for terrorism’ ”, the audit states."
"The review added: “These two shortcomings, along with a clear distancing from Emwazi’s actions, and the ‘beautiful young man’ comment allowed the media to easily portray Cage as being on the side of [Isis’s executioner].”"
"In response, Adnan Siddiqui, the director of Cage, said: “This review was difficult to undertake, however it was important to help us learn and develop.
“We are a relatively young organisation with a small team and a huge challenge but we strive for the highest professional standards.
“On this occasion we made mistakes and we recognise this. We will be studying the report carefully and looking to implement the recommendations.
“Despite the mistakes made, we feel our intervention still made an important contribution to the debates around security services’ accountability, and abuses of the rule of law in the war on terror.”"
