DAB not mandatory in new cars until 2022
20 years after that should be the minimum for consideration of analogue switch off.

Aside from the vague "ways to reduce browser fingerprinting", this is all in the name of security (mainly protecting against CSRF), not preventing tracking. The only way rivals will be hobbled is if they don't add SameSite=None onto their cookies before the new Chrome setting becomes live.
@ Lost all faith... "Because [Netflix] do fuck all when it comes to Radio, Websites, Current affairs; in fact anything they can't buy in several months in advance."
If you needed a licence to consume *any* BBC content then your argument would stack up, but most of the stuff you mention doesn't require a TV licence.
I tried this once - it responds with a message along the lines of, "We'll call you back later".
Some time later, a human calls you up saying you requested a marketing call. It's all to get around the TPS "survey" loophole - which I informed the human that we both knew was the case. He said, "Why did you press 2 then?", to which I responded, "I wanted to know what company to avoid giving any business to."
"In future, we might expect the market to evolve to a point where it is very expensive indeed for motorists to obtain insurance cover for vehicles that are not autonomous."
Why? The number of non-autonomous accidents should reduce in line with non-autonomous motorists.
In addition, "insurers would be free to exclude or limit liability", but this would be the same as is now for unauthorised modifications - there's a bit on your certificate of insurance that says that nothing in the policy prevents liability for third parties, so they'll still have to pay out, but try to recover the costs from their customer.
Santander's login differs depending on which bank they took over that you used to be with. I locked myself out once due to their telephone banking system asking me for a field I don't have on my account.
The customer ID length being "unknown" would be very weak security by obscurity.
Storing hashes of each 3-character combination of your password (along with the necessary indexes of the characters) is pointless - it vastly reduces the attack space to brute force your password. Once you've got the first three characters, attacking another hash that re-uses 2 of your now-known characters is simple, and so on.
They do have 2FA, but only when you want to perform some action. A bit like lazy vs. eager password entry on sites like Amazon. Works better for me than one of those stupid calculators that you have to carry everywhere.
Admittedly, it's not providing much security when the second factor is calling the same phone that the app or website is running on.
I think you may have misread the line as:
$path = $path == "\/" ? substr($path, 1, strlen($path)) : $path;
As it is, the code is equivalent to:
if ($path == "\/")
___ $path = substr($path, 1, strlen($path))
I'd equate that to "no else action".
"MOT test is being upgraded to ensure that all emission reducing devices originally installed are still present at the test. So you would need to reinstall the DPF and EGR for it."
But will you? I don't see much reduction in the fitment of aftermarket HIDs, despite the lack of self-levelling, supposedly now checked for as part of the MOT.
iOS 7 introduced the big UI flaws - displaying the "last view" snapshot image when an app has to be restarted due to being booted out of memory, despite the app being configured not to.
And Safari temporarily displaying the "last view" snapshot of page when navigating back, only to replace it with the current page when it doesn't reload within 2 seconds.
In both of these situations, the screen's just showing an image, but there's nothing to let the user know that.
"Please, you do not know what you are talking about. They are bringing specifically modified cars, with overinflated tires for example, different clutches etc to the test"
The EU test *allows* the manufacturers to do this. It should not. If Apple were *allowed* to claim its iPhone 6 can hold 40Tb of data (5TB?) then you can be sure that it would.
The test is to blame.
"My hire car managed 28.8mpg on diesel . Don;t believe what the manufacturers claim"
The manufacturers don't claim the MPG figures, they're the real result of standard EU tests.
OK, they game the system to get an astoundingly impossible result, but that's the fault of the test not the manufacturers.
"But IE offered "multiple tab browsing" by putting each new tab (each new window) into the taskbar at the bottom of the screen -- a break with standard (and very successfull) Windows design of putting application menus on the application window, not on the main screen."
IE conformed to the Windows 95 "document-centric" ethos - each separate document was supposed to have its own window and button on the taskbar; it was Firefox that broke the rules. Tabbed IE now has the horrific mess of a single window and multiple taskbar entries, similar to Excel and its dreadful MDI window left over from Windows 3.1 days.
"Get it all for just £30 a month for the first six months."
I've no idea how much that would cost me.
Ofcom should not permit this type of thing without the advertiser also saying what the cost after six months is, and preferably the contact length too. And it should include line rental in all prices, which I bet it doesn't.
