Our team has grilled Burger King about the situation to learn how the spam came to be served and, critically, if a security compromise was the cause.

Why on all earth do we allow these cross-cloud single points of failure to happen? It's not hard to imagine a disaster (see icon) or even "just" a hurricane or flood that would take out a lot of civilisation's compute and everything that relies on it.
 Trying to work out who's responsible here is quite an effort. Maybe the UN should compel governments to ensure large spaces between the companies' bitbarns.
The UK Ministry of Defence has also confirmed plans to replace a British F-35B that fell into the Mediterranean following a failed take-off from the deck of aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth last year, according to the UK Defence Journal.
The fast that it's newsworthy for the UK to replace a single aeroplane says a lot about how under-resourced the UK forces have become....
I had this ongoing battle with a German-educated recruiter. He was obsessed that you needed a Master's in order to get out of bed this morning. I kept pointing out that in many other countries (like the UK) most people don't bother with a Master's as an Honours degree is considered good enough.
After much tooing and froing, we managed to get the words "or equivalent experience" in which is better than before...
“Bank of America is providing iPhones to all of its financial advisers so they can instantly access client information and provide timely wealth management advice from anywhere.
Although Wealth Management is a problem I‘d love to have, I can see that you‘d like the expensive person to put more thought into something that may cost you zillions than just a half arsed response on their phone…
I'm 99.9999% certain that the records from the Royal Free Trust would not have been useful to this project. There's a huge difference between "patient X visited and we diagnosed Y" records from the RFT and the protein sequences and structures that you'd use to make models like these.
I'm not defending the slurping BTW just pointing out the difference.
But this is what AI does superbly. While big pharma may gripe that DeepMind and AlphaFold AI didn't spit out a list of drugs that they could exploit, the value to researchers seems immense, on the order of the full sequencing of the human genome.
If these public models "spat out molecules" in public then we* couldn't patent them and therefore sell them! This in turn means that they wouldn't get developed as why would any company spend millions on trials and getting approvals for drugs that they couldn't sell.

I still find it very funny that Kent was one of the highest regions voting* for "taking back control of our borders" and now they've got it they're finding it completely sucks for them.
* Apologies to the 41% of Kent voters who saw this coming....
I mean, stealing national secrets with a usb drive smuggled out in a short (coffee cup, lip balm, pack of smokes) who would ever imagine that that could happen to secure government, tempested and air gapped devices ?!?!
Any competent organisation would have blocked USB discs by now...
I have a mate who lives in France and had a van which was on its last legs. He was about to scrap it, but for some reason he thought he'd pop it on an auction site to see if someone wanted it for parts. Apparently the bidding went mental as it was the last generation of Citroen(?) vans which didn't have all the electronics.
It turns out that the vans get exported to Africa, repaired and then get used pretty much for ever.
