    HTC Sales Are down over 61% in 2018

    I've had a couple of HTC phones, including my current one (U11) but I remember why I decided originally to stop buying HTC phones with the same issue cropping up on this phone. HTC are utterly useless at providing updates to the phone, even security updates are woeful.

    MIT Publishes Self Driving Morality Survey Results

    In many European countries you couldn't chose who to kill in a accident based on anything to do with age, gender, etc since it would technically break discrimination laws.

    MIT Publishes Self Driving Morality Survey Results

    You are actually describing how a human reacts, we in essence don't have this problem since we don't have the capability to evaluate, consider, take action and avoid before we have actually crashed but computers can but the ironic twist is that another human not actually involved must programme...

    Yes but it is EA so they'll still be releasing months of patches no matter how long they delay it.

    Researchers Say a Breathalyzer Has Flaws, Casting Doubt on Countless Convictions

    In the UK you have a similar system as Oldmanbal's state, in essence the portable machine is used on the roadside and if you fail then you go to the police station for a test on the table top machine.

    White House Calls for End to ISS Funding in 2025

    Funny how people rarely mention clamping down on all the tax avoidance and evasion methods used by people and businesses yet will rush to beat those with difficulties in life instead, the real ironic thing is you dream of being the former but are much closer to needing the later....that is the...

    Tesla’s Model 3 Has a Range of 310 Miles, EPA Confirms

    I'll take a guess these figures are based on living somewhere moderately warm but not warm enough so you turn on the air conditioning.

    Wal-Mart says it’s preordered 5 of Tesla’s New Electric Tractor Trailers

    Great showman as usual, might want to actually get what they currently produce going right before venturing on to other vehicles. I also question the 500 mile range, Telsa cars start to drop significantly once you decrease the outside temperature and increase the equipment use such as AC and all...

    Fast Broadband For All UK Homes And Businesses By 2020

    You seem to be guessing and forgetting that as a % of total population it would be like the US getting over 300 million citizens on the internet at 10mbps or higher, not that it matters because as stated this figure seems to change in the UK but least we don't have a single teleco in many places...

    Apple Watch To Be Sold At Best Buy

    My understanding of the initial situation was Apple only planned to sell it in their own stores because of the whole experience, at least it was the case in the UK. I suspect it'll change as sales slow and supply increases.

    Amazon UK Sellers Hit by Nightmare Before Christmas

    This was just covered on BBC Radio 2 and a seller who spoke on the station said he had been lightly hit compared to some, they held most their own stock so could cancel most orders but a few items are fulfilled by Amazon for them. This included a mobile phone where it had dropped to 1p and a...

    US Credit Card System Begins Complete Overhaul

    We've had it a long while in the UK and in essence you stick you card in the card machine and when requested enter your pin and that is it. The fraud from this system comes mainly from people fiddling with the card machines, I believe an added incentive to use the chip & pin system was the way...

    How AMD's Mantle Makes Games Better

    Certainly less dumb than a people who believe in they've not personally used or something that hasn't actually been tested by independent reviewers etc. Like all technology which arrives via demos, specs, abilities, etc by any company it is all hogwash and hyperbole until properly tested.

    The Gaming PC That Costs $13,000

    A lot of you really are getting rather silly stating how much you could build it for that you completely ignore the fact it is a UK company thus at the very least all the parts cost more and that price includes our 20% VAT.

    Core i7 4960X Ruined During Delidding Attempt

    EA Gifting Free Game to SimCity Players

    At the later stage you place the sewage treatment planet next to or near the water pump as the treatment plant cleans the water and thus creates ground water in the surrounding area. AFAIK the trade depot can have any of they from the start, the trade port has certain requirements because it...
