Apple's days are numbered and they are becoming increasingly desperate in an attempt to direct some kind of attention onto themselves as they realise consumers don't want orwellian 1984-computers which tell them what they want and don't let them do their own thing, no matter how shiny and white they may be.
"We just realised nobody wants our OS, so we'll say nobody needs it and hope it comes true"
One problem I can see...
When you turn, wouldn't everything slide off it?
Analyses what you've eaten and delivers targeted adverts.
Not Windows' fault
The problem there is known as 'human stupidity' - ie. opening random email attachments.
Do people really still fall for that?
I can't take that guy seriously...
His surname is actually Borg!
Resistance Is Futile.
What about this one?
Not at all, I thought exactly the same thing.
FAIL city indeed.
Read the latest issue of Sniff Petrol (out today)
I never allow any site to use flash without a good reason.
I assume this is DNS based
EVERYONE should get their DNS directly from the root servers or run their own DNS server. It's becoming the only way to avoid censorship and interference with your connection.
Yet another reason to ditch Vermin Media too.
Put a laser weapon in one? or maybe some missiles? Even just heavy objects with sufficient heat shielding not to be destroyed in the atmosphere and sufficient mass to make a small crater of my target?
Just wondering, you know...
TPB sold out and is soon to die. All these idiots are just wasting their money.
I was probably voting for him before ("Democacy is being allowed to vote for the person you dislike the least" - he may be an idiot, but less of an idiot than Brown or whoever the lib dem leader is this week), but this has increased that chance significantly.
firefox has jumped the shark really. Personally, I am only using it until something less bloated is released, developed by people who don't chase the latest 'ooh shiny' useless feature that make it look ugly and reduces usability.
I hope there will be options/addons to disable all the crap they are adding, and not another Firefox 3, forcing users who don't like the useless bloat to wait a year for them to fix it...
Aliens. Must be aliens.
The invasion has begun.
I , for one, welcome our new alien overlords.
(finally, a chance to use this icon...)
No, UAC continually nags you every time. Noscript only needs an initial 'mark as trusted' for trusted sites, and 'mark as untrusted' for analytics sites, ad sites, etc.
Office out, Openoffice in
So it seems like time to go 100% Openoffice when Office 2003 is too old. I was still hoping M$ would give an option to have a normal interface in office 2010, but it seems sadly no.
Where can I get one?
And how much money do you want?
They finally gave us features to completely disable that completely shit URL bar.
This happened last month.
Admittedly an impressive one, but thefts are not rare in EVE.
@Richard - the bank is 100% player run and owned. There is no official bank service in the game. Money most definitely is finite, even though they have a lot of it.
@Anon "Laissez-faire or double standards" - buying ISK via time codes is a lot more expensive than via 3rd parties. It is also well controlled so there is no chance of scamming while all the chinese gold farmers will just take your money and never send you the cash, or infect you with a keylogger then clear your cash out.
@Feef - scamming, metagaming, etc is all within the rules, he only got b& for selling ISK for IRL money, which is not allowed.
Any site that stops hiding my password...
Will be a site I stop using.
Loving the new icons
But I still think the dead vulture should make a return.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents?
More like the The Nanny State Society for Pointless Nagging and Interfering.
Since when have we used non metric units, miles excepted? As far as I know, America is the only country not to use metric.
I don't even know any non metric units apart from miles and a very rough idea of feet.
I have a better idea
We can swat PETA members instead. They are even more annoying than flies, and I bet more satisfying to swat.
Mine's the one with the PETA member swatter in the pocket.
Opera sucks anyway.
Big piece of bloatware. I would rather use IE.
Firefox is still the best browser, despite huge and fairly numerous issues
Well, to be honest, that's fucking stupid.
I use firefox, but I Fdo use IE occasionally, if the copy of windows 7 I buy doesn't have it, first thing I will install after FF and NOD32 is IE.
Same for Windows media player.
Also, what about people without internet access via another PC? how are they going to be able to download an installer or whatever for IE/FF?
"And if there's anything an Apple product can't be, it's tired and unexciting."...
That is all.
I would love to get hold of an electric guitar version for myself though.
Now we just need to wait for phorm to die.
April Fools Day
Something tells me everyone here has been epically trolled...
the mor(m)ons just don't use the internet if that offends them.
their outdated superstition offends me, so I just don't subscribe to it.
As if I care
Adblock Plus FTW.
Allow me to be the first to say...
@ 'legal question'
@Which ISP will definitely not go down the Phorm route?
IIRC, Be are safe. They are the only ISP really worth considering anyway, with Sky coming a distant second, who afaik are also safe.
Well, electric cars are so crap you could probably keep up by running, or just driving behind it at 40mph until it runs out of battery after 30 min or so.
That URL bar improvement is well known, except it still searches in titles, still searches bookmarks, still searches from the middle of a URL rather than just the start (e.g. if I type google then I would expect it to match google.co.uk and not a website with google in the middle of the URL, or in the title)
@ anon 'meh'
I am in exactly the same position.
Does anyone care?
...Didn't think so.
BitTorrent can be run on ANY port, I assume they will only sniff the default port.
The data sent and received has been encrypted for years anyway.
Just print everything in 1point text.
Or don't print it.
Is the Awful bar fixed yet?
I am still using Firefox 2 and will until it either gets too old (change browser) or they give an option to disable it in Ff 3.
Well, at least they are easy to return
surely the entire point of the macbook air, when it fails then you can easily send it back to apple.
Explains why people are pirating XP but not vista.
"Apple encourages the widespread use of multiple anti-virus utilities"
Great way to reduce performance and cause conflicts between them.
Also, I see apple recommend norton and mcafee... Looks like apple need to do some research into this 'security' business...
Also, it seems the end of mac fanboys' smug 'macs don't have vulnerabilities' is ending at last... Of course macs have vulns, just until now nobody has bothered to exploit them. Windows is possibly more secure due to regular patches.
Ah, that explains it...
"Tavares also predicted a long-term shift to communal car ownership."?
More like Communist car ownership, am I right?
Never going to happen.
"aims to reduce consumer security"
Got that right. Give away your personal data, not to mention only one login to compromise to gain access to everything.
