The move to roman numerals (version 10 will be released as version X) and the requirement that every customer purchase a yearly Customer Care Package which does nothing except entitle the buyer to purchase the next major upgrade at a slightly lower price than buying it new; even though when you look at the numbers it turns out you would have saved a boatload of money by not purchasing the CCP and buying the next upgrade as new anyway.
This is just a true indication that so called 'Gaming Executives' have no awareness of the people in the industry. Hardly surprising given that the 'Executives' in any business these days are nothing more than accountants. Be thankful that they were not asked to list the top most influential games of all time, the top two replies would have been 'Excel' and 'Sage Accounts'.
Every mobile I've owned upto now have been Ericsson (plus Sony in later years). I refuse to buy Sony kit because of their extremely poor after-sales. My next phone will also be an SE. After that, who knows. I can definitely say it won't be a Sony.
That's what I meant- I listed the series higpoints that the programs seem to go downhill from; well not downhill from- but they never hit that same high note again. Still, Lineham/Matthews mediocre is 100 times better than the usual trash paraded as comedy these days.
There is nothing unique about what groupon delivers. Anyone buying this stock will only prove the old adage 'a fool and his money are easily parted'.
Besides which, if they waited around long enough, I'm sure they'll get an email offering them the same product with 60% off...
I thought Gozilla defeated him in an epic battle fought in downtown Tokyo...
Viz will be suing him for copyright shortly...
add that and JQuery Mobile and the majority of App development requests I get can be handled with a bit of web development.
The way I see it...
Apple never invented computers, smart phones or mp3 players. What they did was they simplified them so people, who where not technically competent, could understand and use them and believe themselves to be on par with the technically competent people who did not use Apple products.
The downside of this is that the average Apple user is unable to innovate mainly because they remain technically incompetent. And it's for this reason that they would slavishly buy anything Apple would have to offer rather than coming up with something better. It also explains that why, when they seen non-Apple companies making better products, they start chanting the mantra 'don't try- Apple have already perfected it'.
they should put that money into updating their GNSS kit. The System 500 that the surveyor is using is over 10 years old and practically obsolete now (it cannot handle the GLONASS constellation or SV32).
So scumbags being scumbags again...
I really hope a load of the Apple Faithful give them a really hard time.
It's being paid for...
...by allowing them to loan on my money to other parties and making a nice chunk of interest out of it. Also I'm sure my money (and others) appears in some line in their yearly reports, indicating some form of success in their business and encouraging others to invest.
And I allow the banks to do this with my money for free. So if the bank wants to make it easier for me to transact my money with them; don't be taking the piss and try charging me for it. After all, a house safe is free, available 24 hours and a lot safer (pardon the pun).
I had this exact conversation with my bank manager 25 years ago and have not been charged any transaction charges since.
It's 'not an option'...
...because according to Adobe, crashing your machine is a requirement.
Here's a video of the Major of Villinus running over luxury cars in an armoured vehicle:
Will that do?
Great to see that he turned up at the ceremony to accept his award.
A cytokine inhibitor would be very useful if a H5N1 flu variant did break out (like Spanish Flu) as most of the victims of it died to Cytokine Storm (a fatal immune reaction).
And they don't like you leaving...
I had no end of issues trying to wrest away, a domain a friend of mine had registered with them. He called me in because they made the whole process so complex that it needed someone with IT savvy to unravel it all.
'Generally, Facebook does not lie'
When satire imitates truth.
"We even did some statistics on the amount of use the statistics system got too. Zero per cent. No one looked at it - like we said they wouldn't."
Yep- that's so bloody true. In my case, I was able to unplug and decommission all the hardware involved and it was over a year before anyone noticed.
Care to elaborate?
"freedoms and rights of creators of content to be rewarded fairly."
I wonder if he would like to give us his definition of what 'rewarded fairly' actually means.
I think we need more metrics on this survey. Like how many of the respondents, who answered yes to allowing unwarranted search and/or torture, are members of the Tea Party, or watch Fox News.
Groupon work by forcing companies to sell at a 60% discount and then take 50% of the remaining profit for themselves (plus tax). And they also keep all of the money in the event that the customer does not use their coupon.
