Comment Re:Provide your phone number for extra security? (Score 3, Interesting) 147

My bank decided I did a suspicious transaction because I was away, and used a UK (my homeland) website to buy something. They sent a text to my UK phone (running software to reply by SMS saying"my phone is out of order, send me an email") . I did not know about this, so they blocked my card.

I asked if it was possible to advise them to use a different number if I was away. They said NO.

If you look at the graphs of weight versus health, for men, after a high risk of death if excessively thin, the risk increases slowly with weight, until they are one kilo past the "obese mark", then it rises rapidly.

for women, after a high risk of death if excessively thin, the risk decreases slowly with weight, until they are one kilo past the "obese mark", then it rises rapidly.

Clearly it is not the weight that kills, but the label obese that kills.

Disclaimer: I routinely suspect medical science is bullshit, based on the fact that the most obvious conclusion from properly analysing the results is that the authors dont have the slightest clue statistics.

However, now we have more than 7 apps on our phones, PLEASE, PLEASE can we get rid of those *&^% stupid icons and have drop down text menus instead - EVEN WHEN ITS IN PHONE MODE.

If I wanted to learn the meaning of hundreds of icons, I would leant Kanji - its been tested as a UI for over 4,000 years, is used by several billion people, and is far more useful than some idiot phone UI that will be replaced in about 18 months.
