Doppler Radar Used By Police To Determine Home Occupancy

deniable Re:Interesting (139 comments)

It's likely because the Radar is active and requires the police to transmit thus reaching into the dwelling. Passive like thermal just requires them to sit outside and watch. Some lawyer is making money out of this.

The Open Office Is Destroying the Workplace

deniable Re:Well duh (420 comments)

Good open-plan uses more space than closed. You need to put space between the pods for noise reduction and traffic flow as there's no pre-defined 'corridors'. You also have to add space for break-out areas and extra meeting-rooms. You won't win on real-estate.

Out With the Red-Light Cameras, In With the Speeding Cameras

deniable Re:Does a Cop or Computer Issue a Ticket? (335 comments)

They use mobile cameras here, moved a couple of times a day. At one point they had to put a cop with the camera so charges would hold up. They changed the laws and an approved tech can sit with the camera now.

What's the Future of Corporate IT and ITSM? (Video)

deniable Re:I'll toss in some predictions myself... (50 comments)

Exactly, MS are already covering these with Intune. Given the BYOD (Support your own crap) fad, they're already looking after non domain-joined devices running multiple OSes. Apple and Google don't need to get on board.

Being Colder May Be Good For Your Health

deniable Re:How do people survive at 75 degrees? (234 comments)

I'd be happy if they'd specify if 0 degrees is east or north, then I'll know which way to rotate the house.

Being Colder May Be Good For Your Health

deniable Re:International translation (234 comments)

I'll be happy if it drops below 25 by midnight. Dropping to 19 means sealing the house and cranking the AC to 11. Then again, we have a cool change, 39 today and 29 tomorrow. A low of 18 should let things cool down overnight.

Microsoft Is Building a New Browser As Part of Its Windows 10 Push

deniable Re:So Windows will be shipping with THREE browsers (248 comments)

Immersive IE, the metro/ modern / Windows 8 store style Windows app version is slated to go away in Windows 10, so there'll only be two browsers. Given MS and their complete inability to name things I expect the difference will be IE / IE for business or IE / IE Express but I probably need more coffee to get more confusing.

Microsoft Is Building a New Browser As Part of Its Windows 10 Push

deniable Re:Start over = new bugs + old bugs (248 comments)

Last month's security update that broke dialogue boxes in older SharePoint sites comes to mind. Mission critical web-app that nobody wants to pay to fix forced a roll-back.

Microsoft Is Building a New Browser As Part of Its Windows 10 Push

deniable Re:WHY GOD WHY (248 comments)

I'd say Linux is the most used OS, specifically the Android distribution. Ignoring that, variety is good as long as people stick to standards. Microsoft is no longer the clear number one, so they have to play along as well. Even they don't insist on Windows these days. Look at the supported platforms for Office.

Microsoft Is Building a New Browser As Part of Its Windows 10 Push

deniable Re:WHY GOD WHY (248 comments)

For the same reason they developed WebKit in the first place when Trident had 'won' the browser wars. It prevents a mono-culture and makes everyone play by the standards. Do you want WebKit to be the next IE6?

AirAsia Flight Goes Missing Between Indonesia and Singapore

deniable Re:Escort (275 comments)

In addition, the escort might (given ROE / oversight) be able to deal with external threats. For on-board problems all they could do is watch.

Facebook Apologizes For 'Year In Review' Photos

deniable Re:why Facebook? (218 comments)

You can filter out 'authors' but not subjects. There's not a lot of point now. For example, everything today was done by Timothy. Filtering authors is the only reason I'm not still an AC.

More likely it was Adobe products. Cheaper to fly to LA, buy a copy and fly back than buy it locally.
