But you've got $1M invested in future research, diversification, hardware or infrastructure rather than $650k profit and
Re: It was named after the explorer Juan Ponce de León
Assuming jigawatts is a bad pronunciation of gigawatts, at the expected top end of LAWS powers it's about 8000 (8066 to be precise)
Open source high impact terminator
The fact it's probably not actually open source is a minor detail that should troll the stallmanites every time it's mentioned.
Don't forget the ketchup
This is just a reflection of the new entrant to the market (Android) competing effectively on price and growing the overall market significantly. Nothing significant has been taken away from Apple, although I'm sure there will be people who have moved from iPad to Nexus or Kindle.
Wait a couple more years until the market stabilises and then this kind of information will be much more meaningful.
I hadn't heard of any of them
Thanks for the handy heads up to some new torrent sites.
WoW is for carebears
Now if he'd played Eve I'd have been impressed. The scale of betrayal and infighting in Eve still pales in comparison to local poltiics though

Re: What legit TOR traffic will a company ever use ?
What you've just discovered is "churnalism", where the journo copys and pastes straight from the original article without applying any intelligence.
Post-Olympic normality is resumed.
Sorry about that.
My post olympic normality was resumed when they put the spice "girls" and a bunch of "supermodels" on the stage at the closing ceremony. A finer collection of talentless oxygen thieves in one place than I thought possible.
Re: PLease tell me he patented this
A method - perfectly good for patenting (although arguably weaker than other patents). Also, he has an example of how you would do this - again perfectly suitable for an "instrument" type patent which strengthens the original one.
Re: Rule Britannia anyone?
Which is lovely, but if we keep giving great shit like this away we'll always be at the mercy of the banks to create wealth, and not make the money we're capable of from a high tech industry
PLease tell me he patented this
Otherwise, he's a fool
Can you even claim copyright of a tweet? I thought there were certain barriers that had to be overcome for something to be considered copyrightable?
Stop giving these guys airtime.
Does this make a mockery of the fact that the injunction bond recently awarded in the US to apple was only ~$90M?
I thought that was way too low.
Saw this and checked my spam folder to be greeted by...
Well, that's me sold. And it's not as though malware on android is not known or anything is it?
although the iBrain does carry a USB port for uploading.
THE SINGULARITY IS HERE.
ARM or x86?
Slide 9 - colour me surprised!
I find this a bit wierd. Nokia claimed/pledged/promised they wouldn't file patents against Linux kernel and now it's being used as evidence? How about google's pledge not to do evil?
These aren't contracts. They're public statements of intent and hence are only valid until they change their mind.
Re: Oh FFS!
"I was immediately taken aback by the San Diego's 4in capacitive display, which wows with a resolution of 600 x 1084 pixels and 16m-strong colour palette"
Reads like it's straight from a press release.
I'm all for reading reviews that have a bit of personality, but this reads like you were given a script from Intel!
Don't allow two letter domain names
Which means dreams of ba.cn as a marketing site for gods own food will have to remain a dream
100 teachers over 3 years?
Honestly, google are getting a load of great press over this but that's 30 teachers a year compared to 24,000 schools. Drop in the ocean Eric.
With respect (always a good start to a comment) that's horseshit.
I've had a lumia 800 since practically launch, and while the battery life stank to high heaven for a long while, it's pretty much on a par with my other halfs iphone 4 now. The UI is slick - never had any stutter or sluggishness at all, reception is great - and I'm on three, which is always a coverage challenge... As for Apps - sure, there are less there, but apple and android practically had a three year headstart - what do you expect?
Re: Can I...
"If you want something to happen you sue."
Errm, isn't this what he's doing?
"which makes one wonder why O2 wants any of the old analogue TV spectrum at all"
Breakneck speeds, low latency and excellent coverage with less base statiosn would be the obvious answer.
I found out the hard way what BT consider to be a bad enough line to get out of the contract. I moved house and am at the end of the exchange, and would be getting 3Mbps from a 10Mbps line. Apparently it's only bad enough if it drops to 0.5Mbps...
Not enough to cancel the contract which has 12 months left to run, instead I pay £130 to install at the new place or £170 to buy myself out.
Re: What about overall growth?
Teens on social networks grew from 73% to 80%: Growth of 9.5%
Teens on twitter grew from 8% to 16%: Growth of 100%
Who needs graph reading skills?
The reason they want attractive women in space is probably the secondary benefit of presenting them to the population once they've returned. Nothing says "study hard" than a hot woman being heavily marketed by the Party
I'd like to see them try and buy ARM to lock in that supply. This would spark a massive bidding war and my shares in ARM would go thorugh the roof.
How fragmented is the LTE spectrum?
I wanted to see how badly fragmented the LTE spectrum was and so came up with some pictures rather than the usual unreadable tables you see.
FDD is not good. TDD however looks well organised and well planned - wonder why.
All I can see are the 512 MB ones at that price :(
Coverage is not a right
@dafydd - there comes a point at which is is not economical to put new sites in to cover the last people. All operators make different decisions about that so I suggest you either check out which is best for your area, get one of the gateways you mention or suck it up
We're in the age of user generated content and there's nothing on youtube? For shame :(
Low power GSM
There were a load of low power GSM licenses bought a few years ago for 30k - surely Ubi or fon can buy one of those and then build there own modern (simple) GSM / GPRS core with a roaming deal with one of the big 4 operators for national coverage?
small internet search specialist in "Microsoft please buy me" shocker.
Anyone know what the LOLA instrument on LRO resolution is? I was wondering whether it would be able to resolve what's left of the lunar landers, the buggy etc.
Just checked back on this review.
Regarding Noise - this is practically silent. I've had Eve-online running on a 42" LCD and 720p content running and I can't hear it at all. I'm not even convinced there is a fan in there and I do mean that.
Just a shame that boxee and iplayer aren't playing nice at the minute :(
Boxeee media centre
Got one of these as a boxee media centre, and so far, with the caveats on file formats above, it's working great. A bit disappointing that MKV is not supported, but you can't have everything.
so if there's no data link, how do you update the speed limits when roadworks are in place?
This feels to me like FUD on the part of TPB.
Two scenarios here:
1. The prediction is right, and they can claim it was pre-judged, a sham trial etc. Loads of publicity and potentially a mistrial
2. The prediction is wrong, they're innocent - who cares?
Smart, if slightly underhand move by TPB

That's all we need. Jonathon Ross back on TV, even if he's not swearing
off for a ride
I'm sure he'll accidentally give his family the wrong date so he can have those 5 seats and his lovely lady all alone up there
Prosecuting the customers
so if they do this to any household who fileshares, will they actually have any customers left?
