...given the privileged background these two come from, $65m is probably regarded as pocket change.
Anyway, if I was them, I'd be dumping those stock-options very quickly...
A smarter boss?
I don't think such a thing exists.
Reminds me of the old adage-
'I thought you everything you know. However I didn't teach you everything I know.'
First thing I did...
...when I got my Google+ account. Interestingly Zuckerberg had not switched it on at that point.
A policeman who doesn't abuse his position to go after people who have done wrong to him personally???
And then have those same people fall down the station stairs 'by accident' a couple of times.
Isn't this the site that screwed over all it's regular writers?
when it sold out to AOL???
I'm amazed it's still going.
Another reason to buy any mobile but iPhone...
The ability to make and receive phone calls- and once the call is taken, the ability to finish your call when you decide, not when the POS decides the (strong for every other phone) signal is too weak.
Same with the WiFi. I was out with 3 iPhone owners and had no problem hooking to 1 of the 11 available Wifi hotspots my Vivaz picked up. The iPhones could not even find 1.
...it doesn't help that Groupon demand you give away at least 60% discount and then take 50% of the money. AND hold on to all the money in the event that the customer does not use their coupon even though it's the retailer taking the hit.
The cleaner unplugged it
I remember once client screaming and cursing me over the phone threatening all forms of abuse at me because one of his systems was down and if I did not do something about it now there would be legal action, I'd be sued for lost revenue etc, etc, etc. So after a 2 hour drive to his office I walked in, looked at the computer and then plugged it back in and powered it up. I then just turned and stared at the client.
I then I sent his boss an invoice for a half day, emergency onsite maintenance with expenses with "Problem" filled in with "System unplugged" and "Resolution" filled in with "System plugged back in"
the article is a little light on detail.
for instance- who was infected by the malware? The bank or the small business? If it was the bank I don't see how they could accuse the business of failing to secure their account credentials as it was their computers at fault.
But the downside is...
Once you've given away the keys, can you really complain once your data is hacked and mined? At least when you host your data locally you have full control over access and control. Once you give that away, the best you can hope for is than the cloud solution provider you choose will pay up on massive data breaches. Though they probably won't because they'll have that covered in their EULAs
I see your point...
but I don't think that Apple have introduced such a long delay between submitting an App and it appearing on the App store simply to concentrate the minds of the developers- I do think it's because they are overwhelmed. Though there does seem to be some evidence that paid-for Apps do get priority over free Apps.
But to look at your point from the otherside. What about a scenario where a developer releases an App only to discover that there is a critical vulnerability in it and can not get a patched version out in a timely manner, leaving all his App clients compromised until Apple pull their finger out.
Made me wonder too...
Is there such a beast as a 'popular gamer'?
...a black line?
re: Smart (ish)
I wouldn't call it a 'fob off'- more along the lines of habeas corpus
My tuppence worth...
If it is true that this is just black propaganda then it's incredibly inept (so yes, it's very feasible that it's a CIA op). Given the source of the information, none of the fundies are going to buy into it, even if it is true.
What they should have done:
1. Have a low level official drop the story on a semi-respectable blogger (preferably non-US)
2. Wait for the story to go viral with all the ensuing 'what are the US military not telling us!!!' hysteria.
3. Drop a copy of an official looking inventory of said stash on Wikileaks.
Do not tackle the huge company who can afford very expensive lawyers and who can therefore blow your crappy little patent-squat out of the water.
Of course, the correct response would be to tell Lodsys that you do not know how many of your customers are US based.
Yet another- 'Make the people who work do more work and compete against each other- we don't care because we still get cut a cut from the winner' concept. Stick this in the same pile as Freelancer, Coder-For-Hire, oDesk et al.
Rewrite for the video- "Hi, we're the organ grinder. We don't have any monkeys right now but rest assured with our 'we will fuck them royally' business proposition, we'll have them dancing for you shortly. And the best news- if you don't like a particular monkey, we will shoot it in the face for you"
I think we might have a couple in the storeroom (we where a Psion distributor once upon a time).
Quantify "0.07%". While it looks a small number it could be quite significant if we knew what value the percentage was of.
Funny to see the old Psion Series 3 alongside
as this was the first platform that I knew that used the term App (even the extension .app)
Food for thought...
Last time I stored a large amount of coordinates, I applied an algorithm to them to change each set by a random (but re calculable) amount- This was in order to stop people nicking the data but at the same time make those that did want to pinch it believe that it was stored unencrypted. I never thought of injecting false data (Las Vegas)- I must add that to the next version.
the data only tracks where the iPhone was- not the owner. So if you are off to commit a crime, leave your iPhone at home. Voila! Instant alibi.
