Where I live all the car parking spaces are the same size. Are they different where you are?
I guess you could argue having a child means you take up more space because there are sometimes parent and child parking at supermarkets.

How many of those 50 million are actually live accounts? When the Gov Gateway was first launched I created an account (I can't remember why, I think it was to do with car tax). Apply for a passport? Can't remember the password? You can't recover it, they'll advise creating a new one. Recently I created another (I'm not very good with passwords I hardly use), so created it through Verify, which works very well until I had to submit a tax return and sound that part of gov.uk only works with a Gov Gateway ID and you guessed I had to create another ID. (It doesn't seem possible to get the details on the account that was created through Verify).
Even the government website treats the gateway ID as a disposable item.
If they had smarts the government could begin supplying digital certs. Imagine, a government provided certificate that you can use to secure all your digital life. A lot of politicians would wet themselves at that idea!
No Netatmo? They have heating controls, controllable via their website.
For those that can't see the point of these systems, for years my heating seems to have been coming on for an hour or so through the night because the night temperature wasn't set low enough. Knocking down the temp .5C easily solved.
"The 125kW Superchargers work much more rapidly than the existing charging infrastructure for electric cars. While it takes seven hours to charge a Nissan Leaf or Citroën C-Zero on the three-pin plug systems they use, a Tesla S will charge from empty to full in an hour with a Supercharger. Drivers can find which chargers are available – and many of the charger bays have eight or 12 spaces – from a phone app and remotely monitor the state of charge of their charging car while waiting."
The Nissan Leaf can charge at 50kW, which charges from empty in 30 minutes. Charging a Tesla on a domestic supply takes all night. A Leaf can charge in 4 hours using a wall point.
"Musk says that Tesla is happy to open up the charging network to rival electric car manufacturers with provisos that their cars can cope with the rapid rate of charge and that they agree to the business model of charging the manufacturer a per-user fee based on usage rather than charging drivers for usage."
Tesla Superchargers are proprietary, and no other manufacturers use their connectors. The EU has also agreed a "standard" charging mechanism which manufacturers will be encouraged to use - it isn't Tesla's.
"Musk says that using superchargers will be free for Tesla owners forever. He can do this because the cost is all in the infrastructure, the actual cost of the electricity isn’t that great and it’s far better to build it into the price of the car."
Depending on which model Tesla you buy, access to the Supercharger network is included or not. The lower spec models you have to pay for.
Many of the gov sites need a ID, which first you have to register, then receive a user ID in the post, which you confirm receipt of, then receive a temporary password - through the post. Finally, you can apply to access the service you need.. and then find the website is down for maintenance, or you must send them more details in the post to complete your request.
Indeed, having left the iOS camp for Android, I now have several (relatively) high value apps that are now useless, but Apple have no method of transferring to another account as a resale (or even gift to someone else).
Similarly, purchases through the iOS VPP are locked to an Apple ID, which I'm sure many businesses will love once they try to migrate licenses among staff and find they have to repurchase.
Both seem against EU law. Anyone willing to take them on?
No, you have a subscription to use the facilities. The physical token merely identifies the subscription is valid, you didn't BUY the token. I'm sure if you look in the contract you'll see the token is still the property of the gym company, required to be surrendered on demand.
Except of course, isn't this exactly the same reason Google are being hauled in front of the PAC committee again? If the two guys in the US are setting up the sale, shouldn't the sale be attributed to the US authorities? Or have you set up some elaborate licensing agreement between the UK parent and the US subsidiary?
Well lucky you. Where I am, the maps are in black and white, and at awful resolution. Try looking up some famous landmarks to test out the fluff that is the 3D view, pick the suggestion the app gives you and "no results found". How can that be when it was the app that suggested it in the first place?! If you want to have public transport information, tap the icon to get some "suggestions" of other apps you could use to find what you need. Well that would be peachy if any of them actually had data on the transit systems around me.
I don't think it's an insistence that everyone thinks the same, it's more a group of people fed up with being treated like second class citizens pressing for recognition of their rights.
I have no problem with people holding a different view to me, I'm sure there are plenty of things we'd disagree on. I DO have a problem with people promoting their ideas in a manner or language that attacks me (posters on lampposts, leafleting, homophobic apps).
Describing my being as a disease which requires curing does not send a positive message, and I am not surprised there are people who "struggle" with their sexuality if they are being told there is something wrong with them all the time, and that is what I would like to see change.
