Re: needs shake-up in own apps
It's hilarious that Apple strongly recommend that you do not design 'Portrait only' Apps and then go and break their own rules- The Camera App is another that only works in Portrait too.
I don't understand why this is considered 'new' research.
The film 'Kinky Boots' gave a concise reason for the appeal of high heels; To wit: "That they presented the buttocks in away that indicated the female was available for breeding"
You could say...
that this technology LED the way for some amazing innovations
Re: doubleplus like
I noticed that I got a "Team Leader" endorsement the other day from someone I've never worked with.
Re: Second Life?
"perhaps a followup study could measure correlation between % skin and beard length of player."
and length of time player has lived in parents basement.
"who reserve the option of denying GPS service, though this has never actually happened."
Are you sure about that- I'm pretty certain that there was quite a few outages during the first gulf war. Fortunately civilian GPS was in its infancy so it would not have received a lot of notice. However the company I worked for sold surveying solutions around GPS and I remember a lot of disgruntled customers.
Re: Just a bunch of wiggly lines?
The civil service are the puppet masters- Anytime a 'new' government is voted in, all you change are the public faces- the puppet masters are still there with no change.
Re: Public sector
From what I've read- while basic wages have dropped over the last 5 years, those of the 1% have increased 16%

I think the City was counting the chicken before it came out of the hen's bum
Re: That yacht looks terrible
my guess is that Jony Ives and Philip Stark don't design many yachts.
Merry Christmas everyone (screw the divorce lawyer)
But good code...
...is an artform. In fact I'm trying to get the local Revenue Office over in Ireland to recognise me as an artist so I'll qualify for the Artist Tax Exemption scheme...
"UNDER HEAVY FIRE FROM DASTARDLY, MUTTLEY AND REST OF VULTURE SQUADRON..."
that's a kick in the Arris for Motorola Home.
Re: More retarded nonsense. And CIA under Barack Hussein Obama orders behind it!
I presume when you wrote "More retarded nonsense" you were referring to the mindless drivel in your own post.
I've always said "Guns don't kill people, Americans with guns kill people".
Also, does anyone else find it ironic that Kinder Surprise Eggs are still illegal in the States because they are considered a serious hazard to small children...
Re: Ha ha, MS software...
Sounds like the Dublin Bus tracking system. The only system that can compress 20 minutes into 2 minutes.
today it considers it a "goodwill military outreach program."
Fair play to them and Merry Christmas everybody

The Finnish mobile firm *mist* now hand the crown to Samsung
I'm just back from Gotenborg with the children- I decided to take them there to visit the Christmas markets because my plan to take them to Belfast had to be dropped because of the Union Flag riots there...
Re: No love for DogPile?
My thoughts precisely. While not a search engine in itself, it aggregated results from all the other popular engines which was more likely to throw up what you were looking for. I'm trying to remember the name of the tech-search engine it also referenced, which was the best for getting results for programming related enquiries...
Here you go...
"Big Blue reckons that the future holds tiny sensors embedded in computers or mobes that will "smell" if you're coming."
Fixed it for you.
Here's an idea...
what if it's a chimera- designed to take other satellites out. Then North Korea can just say 'whoops- sorry, the satellite entered an unstable orbit and accidentally took out a spook spy cam'.
...one of the first Anonymous actions that I actively approve of.
Re: The Artist's themselves are kinda too blame...
True- there is always an exception to the rule (Billy Bragg also comes to mind). The downside is the 'artists with integrity' percentage is so low that it doesn't even feature as a blip on the record labels yearly profit forecasts.
Re: Angered down in Anchorage
Certainly appears to be the mindset of the head guy at Pandora:
The Artist's themselves are kinda too blame...
...it seems that most artists are only in the industry hoping that a record label will drive a huge dump truck full of money and tip it onto their front lawn.
And then there are the 'artists'; in which case it's the managers that are hoping a record label will drive a huge dump truck of money...
The Real Story here...
...is that some people are still using CorelDraw and Quark.
Though never a Delphi programmer (a C/C++ programmer from the Turbo days) I just haven't bothered updating since XE1. I remember that they threw in RadPHP (or whatever it was called) for free- I looked at it once and never again.
Re: Stupid people always want something to blame
It's no even an off-the-shelve Tom-Tom in some cases- it's whatever piece of SatNav crap Lidl/Adli last had on sale.
I did it a couple of years ago when QR codes first appeared. My QR code just redirected to a website that had the message "stop buying useless crap"
Howard The Duck...
Finally available on Netflix!!!
Do chess games count???
For the sheer WTF- Psion's 1k ZX80/81 Chess.
Yes, and Loderunner

Let's start a petition to get this as the official theme tune for the new film
Re: US Patient Office
You forgot: Crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
The list seems very confused.
Motorola screwed over Psion, effectively killing them. Now Google are screwing over Motorola. Karma's a bitch...
Re: "Apple's aura of perfection..."
Agreed- My iPod 4th generation has run like a shot donkey since I've installed IOS 6. It sucks (and not just the maps) and there's no way back to IOS 5.
Re: Secondlife Is still Alive.
The main fail of SL is it is shit (as pointed out further up thread). The only people that are still there are complete saddos who are trying to convince themselves that it will become relevant again.
and as for "IOS ease of use" my 6 year old daughter had absolutely no problem finding her way around a Galaxy Tab the first time she held one.
Re: Don't talk to me about...
I seem to remember that they short two of the pins in their un-serial cable.
Re: An Adventure...
yeah, I think we need to get Gil the Arm on this one.
Re: Ipad as generic name for tablet
my six year old has asked for a Samsung Tab 2. She thinks it's more superior to mummy's iPad.
in some cases, quite literally shit.
Facebook can't even be trusted with people's day-to-day information, do you really want them getting your credit cards details as well???
Re: Mind you, there are still authors having great fun...
ah, the story that's going nowhere and taking ages to get there. Populated by identical characters but with different hairstyles. All available in 3 emotions (but mainly angry).
