i felt i needed to edit the title for your comment:-
itunes and windows really sucks
I tried to download it, and I think the songs downloaded OK, but everytime the 8mb LP element downloads, I get error -23. At least the poor thing tried to download it everyday since Friday, so A for effort.
over hyped 4chan users meet their match
So all these 4chan users who boast about being the master of the internets and untochable because they go through 7 proxies have finally realised that actually they do depent on a ISP. The last laugh i think is on them!
I think you miss the point of apple...... i think the notebooks they offer are fantastic and although more expensive, keep their value and are more stable. I mean you dont moan that a mercedes brand new is more expensive than a ford, even though they essentially do the same thing. also what features are a generation back?
apples pros are:-
strong stable reliable hardware and software with great customer services, when i phoned the uk helpline i got through to the us with a guy speaking clear english and was very helpful.
compared to ms's helpline where i got through to a guy in india struggling to speak english and was just reading off of a screen.
become an apple user before slating the systems! i have to use both MS and Apple and can say that i think that apple are a better overall offering
I don't think this is new news, i know a plethora of people who have had dodgey advice from phones for you. i have avoided the shop for a few years because of this. Damn scammers they are all a bunch of cowboys!! (off subject not to reg. i would appreciate a cowboy image as i think this would be appropriate.)
apart from your example being plain wrong as there are more than 19 games a season in the prem and man city are in the prem and have been for several years.
i think the argument is how can you trademark a numeric score or stat? i mean can man utd trademark 9-0 for their record score in the premiership match against ipswich?
also what happens if another team goes 19-0 are they in breach of trademark for calling it 19-0??
problems with it in school
this can only be a step in the right direction, all too often in schools etc. people are taught "how to make a access database" and not "how does a database work". The former approach limiting a user to use a single piece of software more often than not Microsoft based the latter allowing for general use of a technology....and inevitably more flexibility!
firefox standards compliant???
I think somewhere down the line people have deluded themselves that firefox is standard compliant! when it does not pass the acid 2 test itself! the only standards compliant windows browser worth downloading is Opera. However having said that i use FF just due to its user friendliness and its ease to develop in due to the plethora of extensions available.
