We have one recourse left.
"So what platforms does the virus infect? Windows, Linux, Mac, Solaris, Android, iPhone? All of the above?"
Yes. This. Please.
"4Mbps to 25Mbps"
That means I'm already not getting Broadband. LOL.
Of course the fact that Cox cable charges for 1mbs what other ISPs charge for 5-12mbs is an over priced joke on it's low end customers.
I know of someone who got hit for infringement of some song because of a printer going in the background.
Who is on the boards of all these big corporations?
Is this Google attack on Microsoft just a set up for the purpose of making us feel empathy towards Microsoft in order to soften the blow-back from computers users/population/us when Microsoft begins the ramp up to introducing Windows 10 as well as OS as a service?
No Microsoft. It is not your PC!
Having to keep a stylus with the device is an additional material realm burden and takes away from the experience. If a technology is sufficiently advance such things shouldn't be needed to enter data. Only exception I would consider a stylus for is the fact that fine point pressure and angle control is needed for artistic endeavors on the device like emulated paint brush and pencil work.
It makes sense. The deity ISIS married the deity Osiris in Egyptian mythos. Now Google's Earth satellite company(DigitalGlobe) can marry up with the NASA Osiris capsule program in space like a reliving of the deity marriage experience once again. Just keep a watch out for Seth... LOL.
Google Translate is hilarious. I've copy-pasta'd enough Japanese into Google Translate to know their technology to translate things is far far away from ready. What it usually gives me these days is unintelligible combinations of English words that add up to nothing.
He wants advice where to go next? He shouldn't be asking that should he? LOL.
Actually, I would tell him nothing. I wouldn't want him discovering and then ruining anything I actually care about. ( -.^)/
Microsoft wrecked Skype enough that I welcome all alternatives.
"shouldn't it be on a Sony article ?"
HAHAHAHA...! Good one!
It's my belief that another good mobe OS is needed. I think the Asian companies have the balls and follow through ethic to get it done. IMHO most western companies don't...other than Google.
All the hackers wanted was money. That was their thing in the communications with Sony before the media brought up the NORK idea in it's speculations.
Of course the hacker and the US Gov are opportunistic predators so both glomped on to the NORK thing.
(just my useless two cents)
You sir get a cookie for noticing that one...and restoring my faith in humanity a little...
I was shocked at how quickly they jumped on the conclusion of it supposedly being NKorea. Bottom Line. I don't believe ANYTHING from this US Gov. anymore so forgive me if I'm strongly doubtful.
"Why does a packet from Netflix "cost more" to deliver to me than a packet due to downloading an ISO image from Debian?"
EXACTLY. Thank you wub.
Only thing I would find awesome is if Windows 10 ran as well as other operating systems I've used.
"The real problem remains tho: Region locking. Remove that and you'll see your sales go up."
It's region locking that stopped me from getting into gaming. The only games I found interesting and possibly fun were ones for sale only in Asia outside the US market. I guess I just don't think like the game companies say I'm supposed to. Their loss. I found other interests.
I was thinking the same thing. e-ink is one of the best things I've ever seen for reading text. Have another up vote!
Netflix pays for infrastructure because the ISP's are unwilling to build the upgrades needed to keep up with the rest of the world. IMHO, FCC commissioner is looking for excuses to collude with the ISPs. I Think the fully corrupt FCC commissioner is looking for an excuse to shift blame and pave the way to kill net neutrality allowing the fully corrupt USA ISPs have it their way.
I don't think there are any directors who can pull off the kind of atmosphere we get in the original. I don't think they can think outside the box enough to. m(_ _)m
If Transparent Aluminum can stop a 50Cal bullet, then it's got to be pretty good at resisting ground impacts. I would love to see if this would work well instead of all the glass being used.
Just a question. If the phone's battery over heats or catches fire, how will this new Gorilla Glass 4.0 react to that?
Fire symbol? Because fire. d(<.<);;
That happened to my neighbor! It was a plate or bowl. It suddenly exploded and he was picking shards out of the kitchen wall for months.
It was smooshed by an update. A performance update to be more precise. Well at least it's back up again.
"About 1% of us"
I agree. ~1% is true for Linux global OS market share statistics.
Sorry if I wasn't completely clear. I mean that in all sincerity. When I say "us," I mean those who read The Register. I could be wrong but I get the sense that the readers of the The Register don't all fit the statistical norm.
In jnemesh's defense. How many of us are using Linux or some other OS because of our dissatisfaction with a number of different aspects of the Windows OS?
That is my name for this weapon.
After you go to war, if you silently drop warheads from an orbital platform there is no incoming rocket to detect. By the time you think you detected something it's already to late.
A flattened cube of dark matter?
A holographic penguin projector?
Yup, "bait-and-switch" is exactly what I'm thinking too.
A large wave of retail point of sale security compromises this year right before a soon-to-be-coming preplanned roll out of a biometrics authentication system.
Third world hardware for a third world nation.
I wonder if it's build quality is to shitty to bother loading Linux for use as a e-reader. It would suck to bother doing that with it and have it die in a few months of use. That thing could be just a huge waist of time and money.
Kind of like the old Italian Mafia.
Sorta like AT&T, Comcast (etc) saying, "Aye you, pay me extra money for safe delivery and I'll see to it I don't lose some of it along the way or break your knees...capiche?"
It's amazing how much the head of the FCC wants to get away with colluding with the industry the FCC is regulating.
It's disappointing to see Apple engage In such petty pedestrian back stabbing behavior against customers.
How is this going to look to potential customers who may have wanted to buy a future Apple product?
"No, it's success. This way you are much safer."
HAHAHA! Thank you.
Who's computer is it? Forcing updates is unprofessional and totally unacceptable.
It looks to me like Apple made things worse for GTAT down the line than it looked like they were going to on the onset. I hope GTAT recovers.
Is everything the corporations do now about getting tracking and monitoring data on all of us. It's getting to seem like they are relentless in their pursuit of it.
Yeah, drug dealers like to give you the first hit for cheep/free. It's just a way to get you started. They know once you commit you'll then become to dependent on it to stop. (Just my worthless two bits)
When I saw the images of them using their iThings instead of the product placement Surface-Things I laughed for 5 minutes.
I would love to see another company make a product which gives you the kind of experience that makes it hard to put down or stop using it. Why is Apple the only company that can even approach doing that?
"Buying a whole new machine just to change the RAM is plain wrong"
I agree. That is wrong. I expect better from Apple.
Corporations don't respect their customers or those customer's data. Perhaps Russia is ahead of the curve on this one.
Yeah, about that AT&T logo...
Hows that for an alternate title.
I agree. MS isn't doing anything to help the PC industry here.
Maybe this will help us continue to move friends and relatives into Linux or Mac as we each see fit for their needs.
...If it isn't broken Microsoft has to fix it until it is...
