This was the week when the Oracle v Google trial over the Chocolate Factory's use of Java in the Android OS rumbled on, and the jury didn't help matters much. The jury started deliberations last week, but were stuck by the weekend, though Judge William Alsup encouraged them to keep trying: If there is hope for reaching a …
That would be 'their' persuit!!
Is persuit the opposite of hirsute?
I can only hope you simply forgot the Joke Alert icon.
<-- It's this one, in case you missed it. ;-)
That would be "their" "pursuit"!!!
"Call Corporate Of Apple and tell them to stop there persuit!! Blow up there phones, Spam there emails, call there Administration! Do something to get our point across. "
Dear Lord! Never mind Apple call an English teacher pronto!
"Call Corporate Of Apple and tell them to stop there persuit!! Blow up there phones, Spam there emails, call there Administration! Do something to get our point across. [verbatim quote]"
Perfect spelling of "their" too...
And where do you stand on "persuit" ?
Are you kidding me??
There (location). Example - There is an error in your HEADLINE.
Their (possession). Example - Their editor must be really good.
Bonus: The "w" in the word "quote" is no longer used; it has been replaced with the more efficient "e."
Great first read of the day. Thanks.
Re: Are you kidding me??
Here's another definition: "Whooosh" - the sound of the joke flying over your head.
Hilarious ........that should be " their pursuit"
Learn to spell, A grammatical error and two spelling mistakes............and that's just the headline
Someone didn't read the article?
...some advanced muppetry going on here - and that's just the comments!
What are the last four paragraphs going on about?
I came on here ready to jump on my high horse about the headline....
Then I read the article!
I feel so let down :-(
Beer 'cos I've just got back from the pub

Come on commentards, how can you analyse the headline for every grammatical error yet NOT notice the bloomin' quote marks!
Their you go!
I think most of them are already off work / on their way to the pub. So the commentards showing up here are probably the junior ones, anyways.
Please, be gentle with them.
BTW, juniors - notice how I did not use one's :-)
A bit misleading to pick a badly written comment on the discussion part of a site, and make it look as if the site itself is run by illiterate fools.
Hmmm, pretty much completely wrong about the Google v. Oracle case. The jury didn't decide that Google infringed on Oracle's rights. The question posed to them was a conditional 'if APIs are a protected right, did Goggle use them'. The jury could only answer "yes".
But the judge still has to rule if APIs are protected by copyright. Long practice and precedent says that they are not. If they are not, the question and jury verdict is moot.
Call Corporate of Anything
and ask them to donate to our skools,
Actually, you cannot because that is not a pre-recorded choice.
A live person at a call center - unless truly dedicated to customer service - will, like the proverbial monkey, bang at a keyboard and suggest one thing after another until something works or you both drop off the line from ennui...unless it's crossed their time limit where the person now transfers you to a supervisor who...will, like the..... /nodding off now
