Wintel 7 machines freeze out iPhone

James O'Brien
Troll

I need to ask here?

How many people are going to come out of the woodwork blaming Apple for this? Personally I do not see this as a failing of Windows 7 more so something in the design of the P55 chipset and the drivers for it.

/Troll because you know they will come out of the woodwork on this one.

Palm Pre evicted from iTunes (yet again)

James O'Brien
Pint

Nice to see your back from vacation Rik

As much as I tend to butt heads with you over your fondness for Apple I will agree that Palm really should give up. Though At the same time seeing this kind of fighting going back and forth between the two companies is rather humorous.

You will tell us when you know what Palm did this time to gain access and how it was blocked I hope?

Virginia corrections officers on 'dog fondling' rap

James O'Brien
Joke

Ok This wont be posted more then likely but here goes

Virginia Department of Corrections: Dog Botherers

Are we sure this was an attempt to start a new reality show?

"Grimes reckons Beasley will have a hard time making the charges stick."

Umm eww? I didnt need that image in my head Lester.

Though this does bring to mind the scene from NL: Van Wilder where they did essentially the same thing with a dog and eclairs.

"Thompson's lawyer, Terry N. Grimes, said his client "plans to plead not guilty, but admitted to fondling the animal". He explained that his client was told by the others: "If you masturbate your K-9 unit, you'll have greater control over it."*"

Yes this is the way we make a dog behave, turn it into our sex slave. . .Next we will have a video from them of a dog running around in a gimp mask with elecrodes clipped to its balls.

Though I must say. . .Can we get a playmobile re-enactment? :P

DOJ widens anti-trust optical drive probe

@Bassey

Well I would tend to agree with you on this but. . .

The browsers are being investigated because someone (Opera) somewhere have bitched long and loud about M$'s bundling of the browser with their operating system. For some reason this is seen as anti-competitive due in part to the fact that M$ currently have, oh damn, I just checked and IE isnt the top browser anymore.*

http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

They only have 40%** market share and supposedly FF has 47%**. Guess its time to have Opera look at Mozilla for illegally making a browser that competes with theirs. . .

Well this is certainly interesting.

*Cant be 100% sure of the statistics but they cant be that far off.

**Rounded up because Im being lazy

Apple sexes up Time Capsule

@DZ-Jay

First of all I will say this about the poster above you, i smell a troll. What with the burning of fingers and what not while its on.

But your comments always make you seem like your not just a cultist but a preacher in the church of Jobs. Look at how fast they are failing for people and the fact that Apple is pulling their usual act with removing pages and posts from the forums about this. Get real and once you pull your head out of the clouds you might be able to see that Apple only cares about one thing....green.

"The only use I see for it is to get some semi random math content onto your site.

Just use Google. Atleast that way you have a good chance of having a result returned. At school the bloody librarian here came in for a lecture and the bloody moron hammed up this hunk of junk like it was the end all cure all. Searched for "Dark Matter" and got jack shit for a result.

Judge rebukes copyright enforcer in ringtone case

James O'Brien
Happy

A judge?

That isnt a complete dip? THAT WORLD IS ENDING THE WORLD IS ENDING!!!!

/end spaz mode

On a side though Im glad they lost this. All it is, is just another instance of the music industry panicing to reverse the tred as of late. Continuing to make as much money as possible just because they feel they deserve it. There is no way a ringtone (crap quality, usually only a few seconds of a song and not the whole thing, is already paid for [USUALLY] unless you make your own out of a song you already have [that which you already paid for. . .SOMETIMES] constitutes a public preformance (unless of course its a preformance of how fast you go from sane to muderous rampage because it absolutely sucks and keeps going off, therefore making a beat down a preformance).

Chances are they will appeal this ruling and keep the case going on for another 20 years.

Also, am I the only one who wants to read ASCAP as ASSCAP?

Or more so this word

"his"

Methinks Kelly is a she boss. Though I will agree with you on that one. I think this fine young lady might be getting kickbacks under the table to talk up OpenOffice :P

Snow Leopard data-munching bug predates Snow Leopard

James O'Brien
FAIL

@@first ac retard

Or should I say The First Cowardly Cultist of Jobs?

See the thing here is yes there are a lot of bugs, but the problem your failing to recognize is that Apple is always about it just works (except when it doesn’t or was this the almighty disc cleanup feature?) , therefore his comment was not out of line. Anytime there is an article about an OS (and I will say I'm no saint here) there is always fanboism to no end in the comments. Personally I try to bash all of them equally.

What makes this bug even worse is the fact its not easily reproduced, and its a rather bad one to have floating around in the open. How long till haXors figure out how to reproduce it and have some fun with the Apple crowd? Not everyone backs up and although Macs are in a lot of ways superior to Windows I cant recall the last time I logged into an account on Windows and had all my data deleted on me. And how many people who own Macs got them just because they heard how good they were and don’t know the first thing about using a computer short of surfing pr0n, checking email and playing games on Pogo?

Think about that anyway back to the regularly scheduled flames and I reiterate what I said in an earlier post.

Need more Disc space? There’s an app for that!!

Microsoft yawns at Google's chillerless data center antidote

James O'Brien
FAIL

Hmmm good argument

"If you're offloading data like that, essentially that would mean you would have to have a second data center with the same infrastructure somewhere else," he says. "And while each one can be energy efficient, you now need two of them. So the net is actually energy inefficient. You need a lot more infrastructure."

Will say this is actually a good argument for the efficiency crowd. Not to mention the cost of multiple data centers. Also the question being raised about the links being cut. What happens then? Does Google mysteriously load shed to the cloud? Oh wait. . .FAIL

Great concepts on both ends but in all honesty I think M$ is actually onto something here

Why do I detect a load of BS in your statement? Dont get me wrong, locking the item in the bin just makes sense. As for the fair market value who decides that you or the company? Fair market value can be anything you want it to be. As for the biometrics you have a mule do it for you. Boom done, and not everyone has a drivers license. Nor does it have to be legit.
