Lords: New IR35 off-payroll tax rules 'riddled with problems, unfairnesses, unintended consequences'
Re: unintended consequences
Actually the lead on a rope was dropped to the floor and then the sailor holding it would hold it vertically and walk along the ship. The time was taken at two points and so the speed of the ship calculated. Swinging the lead was a shortcut so the sailor didn't have to walk to the start point. This was bad as it is less accurate leading to navigation errors (potentially fatal if it means arriving at the end of the sea too soon)

Amazon launches itself into retail IT with 'all the necessary technologies'. Not saying which, but you know...
Seems like the cameras are monitoring the shelves to see who picks up and puts back what and then assumes they walk out and are happy to pay for it. All very well till some ne're-do-wells realize the cameras are not monitoring them pinching stuff from other peoples trolleys.
Almost as hopeless as letting you buy watermelons at the self-checkout and not figuring out that it's a case of vodka and not a watermelon you've just put on the scales.

Re: oh no!
I have a LG-G5 phone with USB-C and it is bollocks, it is now so loose it falls out when it's on the car dashboard. It is very fiddly to get it in properly. Never had those problems with Micro-USB. Stick your finger on the cable end and you can feel which way round it is, then pop it in and it locks.
The IoT wars are over, maybe? Amazon, Apple, Google give up on smart-home domination dreams, agree to develop common standards
Does anyone know of a good IoT over mains wiring system? I used to use X10 but they are difficult to source now and the most recent ones I bought are crap. They also don't control lights of less than 60W so no LEDs!
I have mains around the garden but as I'm in Somerset WiFi doesn't go more than three feet in normal weather and some of the buildings are stone.
