<Quote>It wasn't like it was widely available on UHD so no upgrade path. (BBC Iplayer: internet connection,smart television and if you were in the lucky first few thousand permitting. Also most TV's are hooked up via WiFi and we know what that can be like) </Quote>
People where buying new UHD and HDR HLG TV to see the new services that BBC were putting out .
I have my UHD HDR TV connected to 5Ghz wifi and not had a problem, sounds like someone needs a new router?
The signal was in UHD HDR is you wanted it on iplayer... The England vs Tunisia game proved to be BBC most streamed live event up to that date. BBC stopped access to UHD in the first half for a short period of time as they re-balanced traffic across our CDNs to optimise performance. Things calmed down a bit and they re-enabled UHD access at half time. BBC had just over 35,000 UHD viewers at this point but were shipping around 5Tbits of data per second across all services.

<quote> Can't the 'traditionalists' just add a teaspoon of sugar to it when they open it? I suspect that 'Irn-Bru Classic' will be on sale in the summer. </quote>
We'll be importing it from Algeria like they do with Mexican Coca-cola into the US....Yes IRN-BRU is a big seller in Algeria
Transport for London is facing accusations that its decision to revoke Uber’s licence in the British capital was politically motivated rather than based on safety concerns after it was revealed that the regulator was responsible for two out of the four failings it gave for cancelling the licence.
The capital’s transport regulator partly based its decision on the ride-hailing app’s safety record, questioning how the company obtained background checks and medical certificates for its drivers. But TfL is responsible for both vetting the backgrounds of all private-hire drivers in the capital and ensuring they are medically fit through its preferred provider before issuing them with a licence.
A group of researchers demonstrated that a number of existing facial recognition systems can be fooled by 3D facial models made from Facebook photos.
Facial recognition systemsstill have a certain margin of error, for example, trying to identify people of color.
HEI is still working out how many individual customers might have their names, card numbers, card expiry dates, and CCV numbers compromised.
Why would they have the CCV numbers? They are only to verify that I'm (the card holder is) in possession of the card and should not be recorded anyway.
I'm a UK license fee payer, I travel for work around the globe....funny I work in the TV and film industry.
So by what method are the BBC going to allow me to see the content I can legally watch, I'm going to have to install my own proxy server in the UK at home or as much as I hate to say "are they going to turn me into a pirate?".
Interesting who is part of the FAST. (Future Automotive Supply Tracks) is intended to help Volkswagen and it suppliers adapt to the “challenges” currently facing the industry. In particular, it’s intended to help speed up the implementation of technical innovations. No mention of google :-) http://cleantechnica.com/2015/08/03/volkswagen-choses-lg-electronics-high-voltage-battery-supplier-fast-initiative/
>>OLED's have died a death.
Hmmm no they haven't and its what is going to make LG display devision turn a profit in the coming year.
The biggest challenge for OLED TV sales was the high price tag, about double that of the trad set but as everyone in the Television and Film industry will tell you the adoption of this technology is at a pace in production and film making and its just going to drive prices down to that the more trad high definition set. over the next year or so.
At Samut Prakarn, Thailand (not Mexico) a 15.7 TBq (425 Ci) cobalt-60 teletherapy source was lost, attempts were made by some scrap metal workers to recycle the metal. During this time humans were subject to irradation by the source.
It was found that at the edge of the scrap yard the dose rate was about 1 to 10 mSv hr−1. The exact location of the source in the scrap yard was determined using a fluorescent screen which acted as a scintillator. This was held on the end of a long pole. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samut_Prakan_radiation_accident
most insurance policies have a "Single item" limit....mine is £3000 so any item above that limit you have to tell the insurance company and register the item with them. so i suspect she didn't register the gold with the insurance company who no doubt would have said "put it in a bank safe"...and a bank would have to tell the tax office due to the high value...money laundering rules etc. So no doubt she kept it out of the bank to stop paying tax on as capital gain. Hence keeping it at home and therefore wasn't covered by the policy.
BluRay and Sony XDCAM disk is similar and the XDCAM's hold either 23 GB of data (PFD23, single-layer, rewritable), 50 GB (PFD50, dual-layer, rewritable), 100GB (triple-layer, rewritable) or 128 GB (PFD128QLW, quad-layer, write-once). So no doubt this disk will be close to the variant you are talking about, but it will be used Professionally not on the consumer side as the article talks about Pro.
Got to say i travel "a lot" (280 days last year) for business and use the E-gates all the time at Heathrow, never had a problem with its a quick and easy way to get through the airport. I suspect if you first encounter them it might be a bit of a hassle but with anything to do with airports it about managing the flow of people.
Anonymous Coward.... the police or phone company will never just say Okay.....the phone company will do some basic checks...what date does you bill go out of your account, can you name 4 numbers that you call most frequently, what bank account details are they attached on the account etc before they will block the phone if your not giving then full security information.
"Microsoft Office for the iPad: Microsoft told The Reg late last month that reports of Office coming to the iPad were based on "inaccurate rumors and speculation." They were telling the truth – so far, at least."
I use CloudOn for my Ipad and can edit Office documents just fine http://site.cloudon.com/
Well seems the Belgium justice department have messed up in the ruling and mention all domains with www.piratebay.* but not tracker.piratebay.org etc....so looks like they have completely messed the ruling up

Well if you had a little bit of Google-Fu you see that Fixmytransport comes from the idea of
http://www.fixmystreet.com/ Report, view, or discuss local problems
(like graffiti, fly tipping, broken paving slabs, or street lighting) which is also run by Mysociety.
