Choices choices choices
I don't know which of the two I dislike the most. Probably Dotcom because he chooses to behave that way.
Cyrus is merely a puppet, albeit a very rich one.
As for the Xbox, I have either become too old or I have seen too many of the same games for far too long.....
Re: video adverts
Only 5, please for the sake of sanity publish them.
Yes, that represents about 99% of the web but they are looking for the other 1%.... Unfortunately they have to monitor 100% in order to achieve their goal.
>Just give people self driving cars already
Couldn't agree more, I can't think of anything more chronophagous than having to drive. Removing the human element from the equation would definately improve the situation on a whole.. Think aircraft here, something like 99% of accidents are meat-bag related.
Intel - Smintel
Intel have been the 5000lb Gorilla for such a long time that it can only be healthy for the market in general that they lose some of their position.
Intel were/are worse the MS for imposing their manner of doing things......They have been far to dominating..
MS are also feeling the same pinch, good , it was long overdue.
Intel and MS both have some excellent products but they are both in dire need of eating some more humble pie.
Google and Apple also need to take into account the same scenario because it appears that they are heading down the same path.
Faceslaps all round
Will they also give a quick round of faceslaps to all if those that are stupid enough to click on the damned links...

Re: ...pointing to his history of charitable work....
OK, I know that this is the Independant and not the high court but even if only 10% of these figures are true they pretty much speak for themselves.
Re: What we really want to know...
Yes, that's why I don't mind people calling me big nose..
Does that include returned/failed units
18$ is approx 5% of the manufacturing cost, therefore only 1 in 20 units needs to have a problem and then they start losing money.(again)
Blue Light of Death anyone.........
He represents everything that's wrong.
I don't understand why currency should be taxed.. Is it not the goods that you buy with it that are taxable ?
As long as this does not turn into yet another method for the bankers/traders of Bitcoins to get rich at the expense of others then I don't see much of a problem.....yet....

>The prediction will come as some relief to insecure male Apple lovers
WTF is an "insecure male Apple lover ",
a : Is it someone that is having an affair with a timid, red fruit eating, man.
b : A slightly schitzophrenic, masculine fruit that lacks confidence and whose alter ego is a Don Juan character.
c : The opposite of a coke fueled, masturbating female apple......
Re: Interesting thought...
Ah-ha, now we know how IPSOS get the results......
I can't think of anything better for creating "tension" within an aircraft than having to sit next to a twunt with a telephone stuck to his ear for the full flight.
Or worse still, sitting in the middle of 2 twunts......with telephones. ....ear....flight.
Re: After thought
Wow, whatever happens the Architects are the winners.... Good to know that they do actually plan it out.
Do the architects also plan ahead in terms of what will happen to all the infrastructure when Facebok loses it's popularity ?
Re: Frankly ...
Can you give a good reason as to why they are not worth employing ? I presume that it is not their only skill set and in general most people list all, or a good subset of their current skills.
Are you really a "Corporate IT Recruiter" , you appear to have a very negative attitude which doesn't really fit in with the requirements of the job.
I wonder how much that Texan business-twunt will pay to kill this protected animal, all in the name of preservation of course.........
Dear American people
You are getting seriously fucked over by your own government, they are creating a shitpile that you will be cleaning up for years.
Amendments, what amendments, your government is simply saying "fuck the amendments, we do as we please".
The American governement has become a disease, let's hope/pray that it doesn't become an epidemic..
Slavery is coming back, in fact it's already here, to the good ol USA, have a quick look at this nice little wealth distribution vid
Knee jerk reaction, of course it is but what the fuck else is it going to take for people to wake up...
Re: Personal introspection
@Kristian : I have a feeling that you did not understand my post.
Morgan Stanley are criticising others for being too fat and too ugly, it is kind of irrelevant who they are criticising because they themselves are guilty of the aforementioned problems.
Alternatively ..............."Pot Kettle Black"..............
Morgan Stanley is too fat and ugly to bother investing in .........
Retina is dead, long live the Vagina
What we need know is Vaginal not Retinal....
Now that would make some interesting news.
Sarcasm is defacto for all posts..
There is just so much wrong with that last reply.
Your AC status says quite a lot about how much "critisicm" you are willing to take here.
Re: So the T&Cs of Apples web site
@Steve : Yes I agree that they should not be allowed to make money from Apples data.
@Test Man : I don't understand how "scraping " would change the slighest thing for Apple, Scraping requires nothing more than performing normal requests to a web page, this is not a DOS scenario. It's not like they would have been doing 10000 requests per second. A 100 requests per day maybe...which is derisory at most.
Re: So the T&Cs of Apples web site
Steve, this is data available on public websites, all they did was aggregate the information...
It's not hacking, cracking or theft. I honestly can't think of a worse place to display "compartementalised" data than on the WWW....
Some alternatives that might let him win a darwinian award.
I have always considered personal plates as being in the same line as Go Faster Stripes, or furry dice....
Words from a prophet
And so continueth the endless cycle of consumerism.....amen..
I couldn't agree more. I worked in the private jet industry for several years and our clients used their jets as a means of arriving fresh for meeting, they would "sleep" in their aircraft..........
Business is done on the ground between two people, face to face......... not in public.....
Doing "business" in public is more about being seen to do business rather than actually doing business.
Public decency please
It is not legal, nor very polite, to piss, shit or spit in public places because it really does annoy a lot of people. Everyone I know adheres to this principal.
I consider that someone yapping on telephone is extremely annoying and I am convinced that the majority feel the same. Why are there therefore still so many fuckwits that can't or refuse to understand that is a fucking pain for anyone that doesn't want to hear it.
Then we are going to give people the right to do that in a damned aircraft..........
I can see the next stage though, Optional, but expensive, Phone Free zone seats...... Easyjet must be preparing their website as we speak.
Re: Golden Rule
>Very familiar, but what one has to try to do is to make those co-workers and bosses, who stand behind the person who has to enter a password, to voluntarily turn their head.
Normally I would make the situation into something funny. If I am at my desk or someone elses for that matter and I need to enter an admin account/password I will ask anyone watching if they are an "undercover agent" trying to get a hold of my password by watching my fingers, always in a light hearted tone. I can't think of many/any occasions where they didn't realise what they were doing and immediately look away.
Re: Shocking - up-to-date software avoids the problem
>If you are running critical production devices on Win XP or Win Server 2003,
That would be about 60% ( probably more) of current megacorps then.
Re: Some missing elements
or maybe Richard Stallman was taking out his revenge
Some missing elements
They failed to mention that a bearded youth wearing a tshirt, with a evil faced green robot printed on the back, had been seen running from the shop just minutes earlier; holding some lighter fuel and a box of matches.....
All new employees in my office are given the same boring speech.
It doesn't matter who asks, never ever give your password to someone else, not me, not your immediate boss and definately do a "friend". Yes I have the means to change your password but no I do not have the means of knowing your current password ( Except when I look over your shoulder and follow your fingers - corporate policy makes this a little difficult though - 9 chars min, 3 different types). If you give your password to someone else then you accept all reponsability for any and all of the resulting consequences.
Giving your password to someone else is like putting your finger on the trigger of a loaded gun.
Why not add a little bit of nipple too.........( fnaar fnaar)
Depending on ones cultural background I presume that the image would be acceptable in Japan but unacceptable in Britain. Theresa May would have it classifed as Porn/PaedoBearImagery.

I couldn't see any "corrections" link, so said he taking on the roll of grammar nazi.
Re: "How the fuck do these people sleep at night...."
>Otherwise caring and nurturing Nurses / Doctors were known to smother / overdose patients that were deemed unworthy.....
The question forebades: What was a worthy patient ?
Re: Before anybody suggests it is confined to the US ...
Isn't Jeremy Kyle a spinofff form the Jerry Springer kind of shows..
How do the NSA manage to hide the resources ( hardware + flesh) that are required to stock all of this information? This must take huge amounts of processing power, they must have their own seperate power grid.
I can't even begin to imagine the storage + indexing facilites that would be necessary in order capture Googles data, Providers data, Telco data, World VIPs data (ok the last one is small). There must be literally thousands of people working in these facilities. The NSA make the stazi look like absolute amateurs.
How the fuck do these people sleep at night....
Re: Before anybody suggests it is confined to the US ...
Yes, and as we all know, America produces more trash per capita than anywhere else in the world.
Ever increasing standards
How do you increase the intellegence of the average American familly ?
