Glasgow buyers don't take kindly to the stupid type of US shenanigans of apple employees running about telling people to cheer and scream, they'd be told to f**k off pretty quickly.

It was never serious
Safe Harbor was always a joke, the simple fact was the USA got whatever it wanted cos everyones greedy and the voluntary arrangement was just designed to be a catch all so no-one could be held liable.
How are they getting these apps onto Apples appstore if you need a valid developer license to publish them onto the appstore?
sign of the times
And to think we used to have actual data protection laws.
Re: Interesting law to apply
Welcome to modern debate, either agree with the mob or be shouted down as a heretic.
Band Wagons Ho
The police were morons and the school totally over reacted, but i'm more disgusted by the band wagon jumping, why is the president involved?
Very one sided arguement
She seems to assume only men would use such a device. As per usual anything men do is perverse but vibrators connected to iphones etc are just good clean fun for women.
Case appears very flawed
We cant deny the guy is a moron but legally this whole case seems seriously flawed.
1. He wouldn't have been able to buy the gun if the US authorities weren't pretending to sell it which should be entrapment.
2. He has been charged under firearm laws when he isn't in possession of a firearm, he has a plastic toy, surely to make this charge stick they would have had to send him an actual gun.
Under this system of law, if i advertise a nuke for £100 but only send him a broken down PS1, he is guilty of having WMDs because that what he thought he was getting...this may be good enough for the US/UK governments but it shouldn't be good enough for a court of law.
Sylvester McCoy was worst but it wasn't all his fault, he got some truly awful scripts.
seems a bit unlikely
Why on earth would the USA give up control of the internets main DNS servers?
I'd call it...
Unnecessary. If you need a pro device than an IOS tablet is the wrong tool.
I dropped out of my ICT teaching course when i realised there would be the minimum of the most basic programming involved, it was clear i would be teaching what basically amounted to MS Office for beginners; Incredibly I would also have had to teach things that were patently wrong due to changes in technology, I just couldn't face years of that. It's incredibly unfair to blame the teachers, the bulk of what they teach is dictated to them, they only have leeway in how they teach it.
Where are the hackers when you need them?
Maybe some friendly hackers could make a tool to overwrite the hard coded addresses with some localhost redirects.
4g isnt ready
4G is still far too patchy to be used on anything critical, as an example i live in an area with no 4G, despite being less than 100metres from the boundary of the biggest city in Scotland.
"I should have stuck with my original butterfly tattoo idea"
They shouldn't be submitting work electronically unless its multimedia based, idle teachers will be producing a generation of people who can't write.
Re: Only 30% a week?
Just the way the tech press works, anything MS does sucks while apple could release an iphone that sets peoples hands on fire and they would lawd it as a new hand warming system.
I attended a talk a couple of months ago given by the guy who spearheaded early xbox development, he said the sad fact was most of the team were men simply because women didn't apply.
You can't fix the problem with 'affirmative action', that's simply reverse racism/sexism where the best person for job is excluded because they don't meet your quota.
You can trust benchmarks about as far as you can fart them; Various big names have been caught adding routines specifically to generate fake results to popular benchmarks.
I think most windows users are sane enough not to even consider an apple watch, a pointless vanity object.
Microsoft....working hard to screw up your system, when a BSOD just isn't good enough.
That casing looks the same as the low end Panasonic 4k screen, except the Panasonic supports HEVC for Netflix 4k and it uses active 3d.
The nVidia 970/980 cards are supposed to have HDMI 2.0 out.
Re: Failure on a practical but also a political level
Hopefully BT will be punished when one of the low orbit grids comes online, i live about 50 meters outside Glasgow boundary...the biggest city in Scotland, and there's no BT fibre in my area.
If you choose to live in the arse end of nowhere then you run the risk of poor services. Elon Musks plan for a low orbit satellite grid should solve the problem.
It doesn't matter that facial recognition has been around for ages, all Apple has to do is file in US patent office and prepare a Californian judge to back it up.
Re: Tempting for devs?
It gives you a 'cheap' entry point for dev work; it also gives you full access to the IOS app/game ecosystem but allows you to keep your old phone which is very likely to be a hell of a lot cheaper than an iphone contract.
Seagate also got a bad reputation lately for the quality of their HDDs.
Re: Fast track to offense
The United States in general stands for racism, it's not as if the problems are all in Southern states.
This shows how much money talks in the USA, don't blame the guns...blame a flag for his murders. If the next killer flies the red white and blue will they ban that as well and just fly a picture of a fat man stuffing a McD into his face from now on?
Why are people surprised?
I am amazed that people are so surprised at this, contrary to anything Amazon may say about empowering authors etc they are in the business of making money; I'm only surprised they haven't yet tried to claim joint authorship of anything put on their service. We will probably see a lot of much longer books now.
Re: Take a good look
Murder , Extortion and Torture don't count when it's the US government doing it.
Re: oh Dear
Yes, how dare those pesky Scots try to control their own laws.
Well that tagline says it all, MS could release the cure to cancer and tech sites like this would berate it in preference of Apple releasing iTurd...a turd in a can.
It's a sign of todays rampant greed when only 6.5% growth is being touted as impending failure.
Give them a choice
Okay, if they want to block users modifying old games to keep them going then they should be legally obliged to support their online games; If i have bought a game with an online option then they should keep the servers for that game running for the next 75years until copyright runs out. Gaming took a downhill turn when the shysters in suits took over, they really do want to eat their cake and still have it don't they.
Why wouldn't the USA ignore privacy laws? They ignore all other laws when it suits them.
Is this the same Sony that recently suffered a major hack and ran about bleating that hackers were evil and it wasn't Sonys fault?
Isn't the velocity as important than the size?
Does this apply to politicians as well, or are they exempt?
Re: UK Govt are idiots
Not so stupid, I have little doubt they will have exempted themselves from this.
Have they actually tested this on roads that are NOT wide multi lane roads? How about country roads or built up European towns?
Re: The US justice system...
Try broken and corrupt.
It is now too late to stop the damage from climate change, the USA preferred to argue about causes rather than solutions. While we try to limit the effects we should be looking at new ways of dealing with hurricanes/floods and droughts.
iPlayer is usually ok; the real farce is virgins own TVanywhere service, it's a worthless buffering mess for me and i'm on 100mb.
Is this 2 way or is it designed to only benefit the USA as most of these treaties are?
The problem is that common sense takes a back seat when a shyster lawyer sees a loophole.
LG suck dong
I would never pay extra for another LG 'smart' TV, paid over £100 extra for one a few years ago and LG removed almost every useful app one by one, it now doesn't support any paid for streaming service.
The idea of a new zx speccy isnt bad, the problem is SOOOO many games are going to be unplayable on this since its missing all the keys; you're gonna sit at Press F1 screens forever unless it utilises some lame onscreen keyboard overlay.
Hopefully this pathetic loser will spend the rest of a very long life in a harsh prison.
Why are people surprised that a bunch of so called experts were wheeled out within hours? Modern news is more interested in being first with a story than being accurate.
