You'll have to explain to your friends its still recording what they say even though they haven't invoked Siri - maybe that subtlety hasn't filtered through to them

Hey Siri, are you still recording people's conversations despite promising not to do so nine months ago?

Boris celebrates taking back control of Brexit Britain's immigration – with unlimited immigration program
Re: No, the UK was never in the running
Of course it would have been. UK is/was the springboard for most countries to the EU (nissan, honda etc). And according to Musk himself, he said Brexit was the a reason. No-one in their right mind would plink their business in the UK when they would be subject to tariffs to reach the 500M in the EU, cheaper to put into the EU and export to a puny 60M in the UK - even brexiter Dyson went to a country that had a trade agreement with the EU rather than do it in UK.
A load of ignorance about charging etc in the article and comments
Lots of the posters need to do some research instead of guessing what charging times are ( e.g. 4-8 hours is overnight slow charging via the home electricity), the National grid has said that EVs do not pose a problem as most EVs will charge at night and help the grid when its quiet. All LED streetlights can be converted to also be a charging post. Rapid charging will only get better and faster as time moves, remember its taken 100+ years for fossil cars to get to this point of being sort of economical/reliable compared to their first 50 years. Just a few points for you to be getting on with - try Youtube channels like FullyChargedShow for more information.
Brussels changes its mind AGAIN on .EU domains: Euro citizens in post-Brexit Britain can keep them after all
Re: What about .europe ?
"after all it's just the undemocratic, corrupt EU we're leaving" i see you are one of those brexiters that has no clue about reality. Post your proof about your claim. If you want to try the "it hasn't posted any accounts" lie, research the EU website first. (sorry, i know its against brexiters rules to research as it teaches truth but try it) The UK is more corrupt and undemocratic than anywhere in the EU i.e. it allows a minority government that represents less than 50% of the population to vote, it allows a corrupt referendum to stand, it allows government ministers to blatantly lie, etc etc

European Commission: We've called off the lawyers over Ireland's late collection of Apple back taxes
give it time, electricity will be taxed as petrol revenues go down, they will need to make up the shortfall somehow.
As solar appears on more and more roofs with their own battery storage there will be less and less call on the major grid power generators (and also more turbines). the problem with nuclear is the time it takes to safely build one and the time and horrendous cost to decommission it at end of its life (and would you live on the land of a decommissioned nuclear power station?)
Musk has only just started selling the tiles and you might need to do some more research on their "capability". You charge at night when its cheap and low demand, you don't need a supercharger at home except in very rare circumstances. All chargers can be inter-connected via microgrids and managed by software so the power is given out evenly and/or stopped if necessary. And those EV batteries can also be part of the grid supplying power back to it in emergencies. Powerwalls etc are a one off cost which will pay for itself whereas buying and burning coal, diesel, petrol is a continual cost. Plus its still early days in the move the renewables so any challenges will be mitigated.
"I said that the weak pound was more due to low interest rates than brexit and only the other day the pound gained back some lost ground when the bank of England talked of interest rates being raised." considering the rates have not gone up in 10 years, why did it take so long to devalue? No, its was the brexit vote that crashed it. And yes, interest rates going up will raise the value, personally i prefer lower interest rates but a sterling value based on the strength of the economy and investment.
Re: Markets are mostly psychology
Check out the population of the UK compared to the EU THEN check the deficit figures and see who needs who more based on the percentages. Anyway its the UK buying public who can change the UK trading deficit by spending their money on UK produced goods only (have fun with that).
Re: Don't worry
"(why does the init system need to do DNS lookups?, shakes head in bewilderment) " - well, if you knew anything about it instead of replying on the ignorant posts of trolls, you'd know that the "init" part does not do DNS look ups. Any binary with a "systemd-" prefix is part of the project and completely optional.
Yep. just shows that the anti-systemd trolls don't understand that systemd was not awarded this "lame" award for being hacked, it was awarded for a difference on opinion with which the presenters of the award disagreed. It would have been different if they had been able to create a hack. Hell, who'd expect the antis' to work that out anyway.
Re: Crowdsource hit
we've already had one MP killed because of a right wing nutter over brexit/immigration issues, there are plenty of nutters out there that will take on the challenge to earn £5K ro run over a non-white woman who is vastly more intelligent than them. Thats why you cannot make posts like that.
systemd-resolved is optional, any name prefixed with "systemd-" is an optional executable within the systemd PROJECT, not the systemd binary. Common mistake made by soooo many trolls that people who do no research before reposting then perpetuate. There is only 1 binary at PID1 and that is systemd, its easy to check if people could be bothered.
Re: what's fascinating is how the SystemD fanboys react
They can still run their scripts on a systemd box if they really want to, they just have to learn to configure it. systemd was written primarily for the VM and container users where they need to shutdown and reboot rapidly. Having a totally standard way of running a system no matter what distro you use was also a target. What computers are for if not to make repetitive jobs and life easier and consistent.
Re: "pid 1 does DNS"
Why can't they write their own for their own project? Why would init use a DNS resolver? Explain why, as you say, there are a multitude of DNS resolvers in Linux. Why is there not only one, why are there many? To cure your ignorance, you really need to do some research as to what does and what does not use PID 1 in systemd and also find out the difference between systemd binary and systemd the project, you might find some answers there .
