Re: Stelios & EGM
He's probably right. After all, he'll have been on the receiving end of the odd bung so he should know.

Royal Mail Legal Services, the successor to previous incarnations of Post Office Investigations, is recognised by the MoJ as a private prosecutor. They're probably more clued up than the CPS and certainly present cases with evidence gained under the same rules as the police, which is where most of their investigators come from anyway.
"So far there has been no suggestion that any individual from the Post Office or Fujitsu will face criminal charges for their part in the scandal."
Both the Judge and the DPP have referred information regarding the Fujitsu witnesses to the Police for investigation. In the normal course of events I would say that would be the end of it, but with an annoyed Queen's Bench Division Judge pushing things along I think some sphincters will be twitching at Fujitsu. This isn't a case of a corporate fudging the game but investigating individuals for perjury and perverting the course of justice. Convictions for either inevitably attract prison sentences.
Caller ID masking is an important part of many businesses communication arrangements, for preventing callbacks to outbound-only call centre teams for example. It's a service offered by all telcos and a major benefit of VoIP. It's not really spoofing until it's used dishonestly.
The company's most recent accounts show it was a dormant company at the time of the offences, so it was trading improperly anyway, and I bet its net worth hasn't increased from the nominal £1 share that was issued on formation. The ICO must know that prosecuting firms like this is only going to cost taxpayers with no prospect of the fine ever being paid.
My NaffWest small business account was a remote office somewhere daan saaaaf with no contacts so when they decided to get rid of our pesky accounts instead of hiving off Williams & Glyn, they did a deal with a handful of banks to take on those accounts, including Starling, whose £1000 no-strings bribe won my affection.
The point here isn't the reliance on a single sensor which is bad enough, but the complete omission of MCAS from the pilot manual, simulators, or the fairly simple but also undocumented method for regaining manual trim control.
Where else do Boeing have safety critical systems that are unknown and undocumented for the operator?
I thought everyone who was in the know, knew that harvesting our data to provide targeted advertising at a price was everything Google was about? In return we get a fantastic search engine that feeds the harvester, Maps that are great but record our every move, email that scans our words, calendars that track our days. All free. Not.
I had a similar experience - solved by uninstalling the app and installing v2.95 - the last stable version - downloaded from APK Mirror. It still displays the new dashboard which must be generated server-side but 'looking for device' just takes a few seconds. Notifications are still borked though.
Never mind all the technical stuff. I've flown in all sorts of semi airworthy heaps but their lack of sophistication and pilots that could fly instead of being flight computer operators meant the risk was negligible. You'll never get me in a 737 Max and I expect that goes for the rest of the world.
