NORKS: FBI's Sony Pictures' hacking allegations are 'groundless slander'

tempemeaty

I'm not taking the NORK Bait™.

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)

"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.

FCC bigwig grills Netflix: If internet fast lanes are so bad, why did YOU build them?

FCC commissioner trying to change the argument?

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.

Re: Screw OneDrive, when are they gonna fix WINDOWS????

"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.

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?

Lawyers mobilise angry mob against Apple over alleged 2011 Macbook Pro crapness

I hate to say it but....

Apple in this case has not acted like a premium product company. IMHO Apple has done this to many times. Anymore of this kind of abandon the customer and it's product tactic and Apple will permanently damage it's reputation. Do they want to continue to be the Rolls Royce of computers? I know how Rolls Royce dealt with a defect. I know of an instance! It was replaced on the spot. Why? Rolls Royce doesn't make defective products and their reputation for best car manufacture demands it. You can't maintain that reputation any other way.

Microsoft brings the CLOUD that GOES ON FOREVER

Quick everyone give up you're non-cloud office software

No? Okay. We'll use bribery. Here have infinite storage. Now will you? LOL.

Personally I wouldn't use it. When Microsoft rebranded Hotmail to "Live" email service. It came with 20Gb storage and the promise those who got it that way could keep it if it changed. I then got it early on when it came out that way. At a later date I suddenly I found it reduced to 5Gb when it was only supposed to be new users sign ups getting it with that reduced storage size. Nope, I don't trust their fluidly adjusting storage limits.

Apple's OS X Yosemite slurps UNSAVED docs into iCloud

tempemeaty
Bronze badge

The Universe of things...

This is Apple's challenge right now. They keep leaning in a direction that may be considered by their customers unwell for them with regard to the handling of their personal data. Apple makes self serving decisions handling customer's personal data that does not have their customers best interest truly at heart. Apple wants it's customers in the cloud. Perhaps they have convinced themselves Apple's way is right because it's Apple's way to assume it knows better. Then suddenly Apple finds itself targeted for data. China is battering their servers for a way in, putting Apple and it's security to a test. Is this is the universe's reply? Is it the Karmic wheel? If Apple insists on continuing this course, can they expect not continue to become a increasingly bigger data target?

My next predicted move for major corporations in America is that they will start relocating every part of their operations they can offshore to escape the US Gov's corrupt data grabbing hands.

Google, not as trusted...

Someone I know observed how interesting it was that Apple used Bing and not Google. They expressed the thought that it was telling on how Apple felt about Google with any kind of user data. Something to ponder.

@ Mike Bell, Good link. Thanks for providing it. Perhaps Apple hasn't gone all the way to the dark side just yet.

It's nice to see Apple didn't release these only for the latest version of the OS. They have had a bad habit of abandoning previous versions and not fixing issues they were released with. This really is refreshing to see. More of this and I could be persuaded to stop keeping one foot in Linux land.
