Free Libyana: Gadaffi networkjacker speaks!

ShaggyDoggy

Remember

Gaddafi used ant-aircraft guns fired horizontally into a crowd who were doing nothing more than shout slogans and wave placards and flags.

Then calmly said that they were all on hallucinatory drugs, as if that somehow made it all ok.

Well fuck him off.

iPad maker goes Brazilian

ShaggyDoggy

Third world

It hasn't been "third world" for, oh, over 40 years, except in the media.

It's actually "majority world" and "minority world".

Guess which one we are in.

UK.gov opens Red Tape Challenge regulation-slash website

ShaggyDoggy

"revoke any legislation that has not been sucessfully prosecuted in the past ten years."

The idea of laws is that they PREVENT people from doing Bad Things.

Therefore a successful law will NEVER be prosecuted.

Fail.

Yuri Gagarin in triumphant return to London

ShaggyDoggy

heroes

I have two science heroes

Yuri Gagarin - he really did venture into the unknown with the great possibility of death

Enrico Fermi - similar as he stood next to the first ever atomic chain reaction, anything could have happened

Very nice statue - what a contrast to that other statue in the news this week

BBC-led RadioPlayer arrives at last

ShaggyDoggy

Failure points

1. Only UK stations

2. Only 'major' stations

3. Only 15 presets (what!!)

4. Sound quality is piss poor

5. No 'record to disk' facility

Of course you can record it by recording 'what you hear' on your soundcard but it would be better to have it inbuilt.

Apple's 'App Store trademark': A farce of Jobsian proportions

ShaggyDoggy

The Apple Store

I'd like to see them try.

If I set up a store selling apples (fruit) and called it The Apple Store, Apple Computers would have to show that a normal reasonable person would mistake a piece of fruit for a computer.

Ceci n'est pas une pipe.

I've figured out (groan) why a 500 day counter has 5 digits.

It doesn't go to zero, it goes to a display of "TODAY"

5 digits

Why, in all that's sane, do they have a CUSTOM-MADE clock for a 500 day count, that has 5 DIGITS for the day number.

Amazon jumps the gun on free clouds

ShaggyDoggy

Copyright

How will they be able to tell if

- I downloaded it legally from a pay-for service

- It is a freely given track by the artist

- It is my own work and I own copyright

Oh wait, Sony BMG says it's illegal therefore off it comes, sonny, and that's one strike.

Tested

Just tested this out.

Uploaded an mp3 file* to my Amazon cloud.

Then copied the link and pasted it into browser.

Yes you can play it directly with Winamp, and therefore anything else probably.

The big drawback is that you have to sign in to your Amazon account to listen to it or download it.

So It's slightly less use than a 4Gb memory stick, and less instantly available too, and definitely less portable across devices, which is, erm, where Amazon came in.

* I own the copyright
