That Samuel L. Jackson has become a spokesman for the campaign.
I'm surprised no one brought this up.
He probably told the Flight Attendant "It's alright, I've played a pilot."
Friend of mine ported his iPhone app over to the Android Marketplace. Within a day, pirated copies where showing up.
For a .99 app.
Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks, oh my.
Not a patent - a copyright big difference.
Umm excuse me but
iWeb isn't tied into mobile me. It is a very rudimentary site builder that can publish to mobile me or be FTP'd to any other provider.
There are lots of service providers out there who can provide the space (and probably for a lot cheaper).
I'm sure everyone who uses iWeb on Mobile me can do the 5 minutes work required sometime before the end of June next year.
I guess someone is pissed they couldn't get that iPad 2 they wanted... or maybe a white iPhone.
"They've hit on the idea of escape"
Monty Python has known this for 40 years.
Remember when the Pre was supposed to be an iPhone Killer?
The TouchPad will meet the same fate as the Pre with that kind of lead time. Anyone wanting a pad isn't going to wait, to many options will be beating it to the market.
For those worried about "the cloud".
There is always pogo plug which provides cloud like usability, however you own the storage and have it located locally.
The only drawbacks are it isn't offsite backup and the horrible pink colour.
The Airplay speaker systems on display at this years CES make this already obsolete.
read many Taiwanese manuals of the years I can only assume MeMO is a misspelling of MeToo.
Title, we don't need no stinkin' title.
Read the article again, it's 1.5 million phones shipped, not sold. For all anyone knows there could be 1.49 million sitting in carrier warehouses (though I doubt it).
What are the SALES figures Microsoft? Better then the Kin I hope.
Misleading Headline of the Year Award goes to ...
The headline suggests that Apple hacked the Macbook.
Can we expect a funeral march for Firefox and Opera at the upcoming Beta launch?
(I'm not disgusted with El Reg but the tombstone fit.)
Title, we don't need no stinkin' title.
It has to be Aktuh and Maylota if you wanna dance with me.
I purchased my iPad and CCK the first day they were on sale here in the Great White North.
I would argue that the ability to purchase single tracks and not a full CD which is 90% crap is a huge advantage.
PRC suicide rate is 13.9 people per 100,000 per year.
Foxconn reportedly has 330,000 employees.
This wouldn't even be a story if Foxconn wasn't an Apple supplier.
"Playboy editorial director Jimmy Jellinek said he hoped Friday's "newsstand event" would remind readers that while the internet's all well and good for perusing smut, there's nothing quite like a hard copy in your hands."
Who reads Playboy with 2 hands?
Mines the grimy raincoat.
I know nothink, nothink ...
Hogan could have been a hero if he just turned the phone into the damn bar.
Any chance on a Colonel Klink icon?
In the middle of "Tech Central"
The DA must prosecute for no other reason then "pour encourager les autres".
Search eBay for iPad
and you will see this is a good thing.
Nothing wrong with preventing profiteering.
Kind of like el Reg turning the rest of the world into "The UK".
I would imagine ...
100% data recovery from a drive hardware failure is probably next to impossible.
Cheaper, easier and safer would be a basic backup strategy.
Much ado about nothing.
Back up, only change I can find is the release of Aperture 3.
Where do these ideas come from.
I really would like to know where the idea that iTunes is a DRM heavy environment?
The second that members of the PPMA (Pirate Paranoid Music Assoc.) allowed it DRM was gone from iTunes music. I have both ripped CD's and iTunes downloaded music and neither my iPod nor iTunes knows the difference.
There may be some DRM on downloaded videos as I don't download video using iTunes I wouldn't know. I do know that any DVDs ripped using Handbrake work no problems at all.
There is no reason, other then some musings from some winer from Adobe, that ebooks will be any different.
Just a reminder, Microsoft is the king of incompatible DRM, not Apple (See Zune/Plays for Sure).
P.S. I am still boycotting Amazon.ca because after 3 years they still couldn't be bothered to work out an MP3 download deal with the Canadian PPMA.
" If the plane is not full, they can get a refund"
If the plane is full there is no second seat for them to buy?
"Apple's right on the money, then?"
Post hoc ergo propter hoc?
Probably not, but I will bet that in 97/98 there was a discernible uptick in the use of Jack, Dawson or Rose.
"I bet Kelly has been down in the dumps, cause your not a full fledged reporter until you get a commentard being a 'tard about one of your stories."
So she has popped her commentard cherry then?
Thanks for the nice slow one over the plate.
Paris 'cause ... yadda, yadda, yadda.
Sounds like extorsion
"By refusing to agree appropriate terms for Nokia's intellectual property"
Sounds like Nokia said "pay our exorbitant licensing fee or we will sue your ass."
On the other hand, this wasn't filed in East Texas so it must be legit.
I love Fridays
Sorry, but it has to be said:
It could have been worse, she could have been puffing on a dwarf.
Paris because ... well do you really need me to explain.
Any chance we can get this judge to move to east Texas and start hearing some patent cases?
They could use some common sense judiciary.
No Kindle Luv
It would appear that Canada has been lumped in with the likes of Pitcairn, Cuba and Iran.
No Kindle for you!
Fixed it for ya
Kindle is currently only available to buy in the United States of America.
The Kindle is not available from Amazon.ca. ironically, lots of Kindle accessories are available, but not the device itself.
One of the 2 reasons I am currently boycotting Amazon.ca. The other is the lack of MP3 downloads as per Amazon.com.
7) all of the above.
Nothing new here
Dr. Evil developed this years ago, except he called it a frickin' ATL.
No title required.
Actually a lot of HP PCs ship with a trial version of Office these days. Come to think of it my Mother-in-Laws new Gateway has it too.
We will see what we see
Back in June the same moles were saying we would see no Mac announcements at WWDC.
I'll wait for the event thanks.
As far as there being no "target market" for the Mac tablet, it seems to me the nay-sayers thought the same thing about the iPhone before it was launched.
Wouldn't you know
I guess I shouldn't have been ignoring all those enlarge your johnson emails.
One does wonder ...
How many of these whiners have their mobile number in their email signature.
What about SSD?
The article doesn't mention WDs SSD plans.
That is where the future lies.
They could have got a bargain
They should have bought 69 sent songs ... if they could find any.
Penis now too small?
Why I hate Wikipedia
Although obviously this is an "Aren't I great" Wikipedia entry, it does shed some light on what the patent is about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Winter2009/Michel_Vulpe
Saving Pre Ryan
On d-day? Really?
It's not just the battery.
I have one of the affected units. I'm more worried about the super-heating hard drive catching fire to be frank.
"PETA's sealing protest begins Saturday, April 11 at 1 PM EST."
A little late to the party, considering the hunting of baby seals has been outlawed since 1987.
"But according to the Comentards on El Reg she should have killed him! What if it was you who kicked her vicious little dog?"
According to PETA, reason enough.
