UK joins growing list of territories to ban Boeing 737 Max flights as firm says patch incoming


Re: An already safe...

Already safe....apart from all the dead people.

China's loose Chang'e: Probe lands on far side of the Moon in science first, says state media


Conspiracy theory........

Will they be able to use the rover to travel to the US moon landing site on t'other side of the Moon and confirm if there is a flag planted there, lunar rover, footsteps, etc? Or have they used the same place on Earth to film this? ;)

I'm surprised they could access those sites in the first place.

Apple in XS new sensation: Latest iPhone carries XS-sive price tag

A £1.3m prize for a plunging share price at BT? Not so fast...



It seems likely that performance will take a further hit once the news of further price increases for customers arrives. I'll be saying goodbye to Infinity after using it's service from the time it was first available to me.

They also need to knock off the cash guzzling sports and mobile phone stuff.

Britain to slash F-35 orders? Erm, no, scoffs Lockheed UK boss



If they have any going spare I could probably use one on my commute. The VTOL ability should be useful for that. All the press pieces say they're easy to fly so let's try it out.

Sort your spending habits out, UK Ministry of Defence told over £20bn black hole


Procurement process

For projects where we are purchasing a number of 'items' e.g. submarines, fighter planes, etc. I do not understand why they don't have an initial contact for the first of the type to establish cost and then contract for further units as required. As opposed to the current situation where they don't know what it's going to cost, we order a batch upfront and then BAE (or whoever) pass the cost on to the taxpayer for their costing mess ups. Also fixed price contracts, obviously.


A truly excellent plan....

....apart from the small detail that it is completely impossible.

It's March 2018, and your Windows PC can be pwned by a web article (well, none of OURS)

That's exactly what a nefarious hacker would say to lull us into a false sense of security.

Oi! Verizon leaked my fiancée's nude pix to her ex-coworker, says bloke


Where's my compo!

Verizon must have some sort of activity logs that would show exactly how these photos arrived on the ex's phone? My guess, the fiancée sent them to the ex.

P.S. Pix or it didn't happen.

Kentucky gov: Violent video games, not guns, to blame for Florida school massacre


Not this again...

How many more studies do there have to be that show that video games do not cause violence before dipshits like this senator understand that they do not?

Arrrgh! Put down the crisps! 'Ultra-processed' foods linked to cancer!


Absolute risk

The absolute risk values would be useful. 10% increased risk sounds scary but if the actual risk of getting a given cancer is 0.1% are you bothered about a 10% increase?



They just listed my entire diet!

Dori-no! PepsiCo boss says biz is planning to sell lady crisps


Not eating the bits at the bottom....

is madness! You get all of the extra flavouring down there. Granted, I don't lick my fingers after eating crisps while I'm at work.

Long haul flights on a one-aisle plane? Airbus thinks you’re up for it


Size matters

Presumably a place of that size can be serviced at a range of airports too, not just the larger ones.

We're cutting F-35 costs, honest, insists jet-builder Lockheed Martin


I'll take three!

Well, it is only £90m per plane.

Twitter breaks bad news to 677,775 twits: You were duped by Russia



1. Russians,

2. Social media posts,

3. ????

4. Election victory

Seriously, I've yet to hear a coherent explanation of how the Russians 'interfered' in the US Election or EU Referendum to such an extent that millions of people voted one way or the other.

Great wankers

I'm personally impressed that the UK manages to be second in the visitors chart after the US. We must be punching well above our weight for our population.

The male suicide rate in the UK is about double that of women too. I believe the majority of homeless people are also male.

World Vasectomy Day: 15k men line up for live vent-blocking


A poke, 2 snips and some smoke

I may well get a vasectomy next year, never had the paternal instinct.

If you can please consider supporting the Vasalgel (injectable polymer plug, non-hormonal, 10 year+) contraception for men. Looks like a good, potentially reversible, alternative to vasectomy.

There is also another product called 'dick click' out there that looks interesting.

It would be good for men to have more than 2 contraceptive choices - condoms or not shagging!

BT hikes prices for third time in 18 months


Lack of alternatives

I actually like the Infinity service but I'm sick of the price rises. However, all of the other providers don't seem any cheaper once you add in the line rental and activation fees. There's also no Virgin Media or FTTP to where I live.

Remember when Internet was very expensive when it was first available but gradually came down in price, I long for those days.


No, I got the same offer but it's because I've been a customer for 2 years. (I've actually been an Infinity customer for 4/5 years but only 2 at the current address.)

Oddly, they'd only just given me an "offer" to pay £3 more than my current bill a month for the same thing.

Resellers on Surface: Yeah, go ahead and kill it. What do we care...


Surface Book 2

They just announced a Surface Book 2 (https://www.engadget.com/2017/10/17/microsoft-introduces-surface-book-2/) so chances of killing off the line don't look too high.

Also, the channel saying "nobody makes any money" misses the point. MS launched these to show that PCs, laptops and tablets running Windows didn't have to be ugly or beige with the intention that other manufacturers would follow the design cues. So they're not necessarily running this product line just for $$$$.

Sole Equifax security worker at fault for failed patch, says former CEO


What a load of rubbish...

So their IT team doesn't know a patch is available without someone sending an e-mail about it? They don't have patch management software? Individual software packages don't alert IT about patch availability?

More likely scenario is someone was told not to apply the patch for one reason or another.

BYOD might be a hipster honeypot but it's rarely worth the extra hassle


Re: Millennials - CYOD

Yes, definitely. Always thought CYOD was a better alternative. I think a lot of employees either want some sort of Mac or other people on Windows PC want something above the bottom of the range offerings that companies usually get on bulk purchasing / framework agreements.

Ducks ding dongs in face of stiff competition


Re: No you haven't heard it all, yet

I'm going to gently rock back and forth while holding my knees now.

The plus side of that video was it had some cute baby ducks in it. They didn't fully compensate for the horrors though.


Temporary penises

I've heard it all now.

As AC above says, how does a duck have a 7 incher? Would they be able to take off still?

What do you call an all-in-one PC that isn't? 'Upgradeable', says HP


How do the 7050s perform? I'd like to get one for work but will wait to see if there is a Coffee Lake refresh.



I like this idea about being able to upgrade parts of a computer. Imagine a world where instead of being in the monitor stand the PC gubbins were in a separate box to make upgrading even easier. I think it may be some years off but imagine the possibilities!
