I thought today us and the French would be announcing we were aligning with the Germans. 
 

Or Frogs and Krauts as we used to call them. 

Not been proven to work consistently yet has it? In its Infancy? Unless I’ve misread stuff earlier. Happy to be corrected as if it’s got a 100% success rate then we just need to join them as you say. 
 

two days old. Fingers crossed

If anyone else has any experience of working with apple you will know they are hard fucking work. More secretive than the KGB them fuckers.

Peice on Outside Source just now, seems loads of countries have various issues with their track and trace apps, some glitches, some trust issues

Get the feeling when it does finally launch there won't be much uptake

So Apple are the issue. The app works in its base form but Apple are restricting the use of Bluetooth linking when the app/phone is not active. 
 

ao Apple then benefit from having the cheif bargaining chip and will only relax it for their own apps. 
 

who knew  these sort of things happen in the big bad world. Very surprised and disappointed the government and the company developing it didn’t see being held to ransom on the horizon. You would have thought Apple would put there commerical interests slightly behind public health
 

But Hancock and Boris out 

They knew about the Apple Bluetooth issue weeks ago and choose to plough on regardless.

It’s exhausting, these things are not new; do people just defend this sort of stuff just to be contrary? I hope so, because if they believe it then that’s really scary.

ive genuinely tried to give folk the benefit of the doubt at each step, so when the potential fatal flaw was identified I hoped they'd come up with a workaround. I know app development somewhat and am sure there were devs promising they could sort it and deliver better than the apple google solution.

Thing is, if you do go your own way it needs to work. Clearly it didn't. So yes, pull the plug and go to the alternative, but someone somewhere has to take responsibility for the decision making because it's appearing to be seriously flawed.

if it was that tricky a development proposition they could've adopted a twin track approach and developed each app simultaneously, it's that critical to getting the economy up that the costs aren't really a factor in comparison. 

As it is, it feels like on this or on the timing of lockdown etc that there's an impulse to be radical and look for big wins. I'd sooner there was a much greater attention to small details and steady progress. I have no problem in seeing briefings conducted by boring, dull, competent people making no promises they can't back up.

He doesn't say hes an expert

Hes just repeating what we all knew -  except bozo, Hancock and dildo (remind me of her credentials again) seemingly

I'm guessing he doesn't restrict his learning to chris green and conservative woman. :)

Apparently doesn't work properly.

Relies on a shit load of Android users being nearby to stop iPhones bluetooth from switching off.

" iOS apps are forbidden from using Bluetooth for long after they are minimised. To keep iPhones registering contact events appears to require either the user to constantly remember to reopen and refresh the app, or stranger still, sufficient Android ‘herd immunity’ among app users, where a nearby user of a non-iPhone, if in range, nudges nearby iPhones to not fall asleep, and to keep listening out."

Here you go BD. 6th of fucking May. 
 

Absolute clowns.

That was probably when Cummings was explaining why he was roaming around the country testing his eyesight so Boris didn’t know what to do. Another tenner for Mr Esco😂

Yes.

Or people can tie a carrier bag tightly around their necks, that works too. Better than bleach injection.

Works better if I do the tying of the bag and select the patients myself as well. Call it a clinical trial. 
 I’ve drawn up a select trial list off here. 7 people funnily enough 😁
