Private and Public
So many XP.ssssss...waste of public funds and personal information held by private companies in danger...
I never saw those commissioners complaining about the European companies that keep their businesses sucking Brussels subsidies by moving their factories toward new EU entrants. And lastly, they outsourced to Africa, South America and Asia. Parasites, in my opinion. Guess what, the majority are from Central Europe and Scandinavia.
Wait a minute...
This is being developed in Cupertino right? Because they invented everything on "mobile" right? Damn Google copycats!
Again, Nokia/Microsoft, I don't see them selling their top-notch phone for a bargain.
Also, setting a high price gives the impression of a premium product, but that doesn’t help much . If MS sold all their phones much cheaper than their rivals, the risk that Joe Public thinks they're cheap because they're budget products is zero, they simply don't care about expensive Lumias.
But Joe Public ends buying Lumias because they have the label "NOKIA", not because it has Windows Phone inside, not because the OS is made by Microsoft or because they have premium optics.
You're screwed whatever you do :)
Well, considering that Nokia/Microsoft are struggling to sell high-end devices running Windows Phone (the cheapish 520 beating them), maybe offering a different OS isn't such a bad move since the release of the X models got a lot of press attention.

Re: I don't get it
I'm not talking about the lunatics, but the coders. Not that there isn't lunatics as well among coders, but, looking at what they do(and did), we are talking about bright people, and, I suppose, highly educated. Maybe the NSA recruits only the most narcissistic ones...
I don't get it
Who are these people (at NSA), that accept to develop this kind of mass surveillance without having any issues against it?
Here we go again...
No one can stop these bonuses sucker addicts? If a company really, REALLY want to cut costs, it's easy. Just outsource the stupid positions of CEO, COO, CFO and all the fraking C*s!! Oh, and cut the board to a 1/5.
They should have despicted a lesbian couple as well!

"Microsoft's information-by-radio Spot watch technology will now not hit the market until early next year rather than this week. And some of the software giant's hardware partners may not even ship product then."
Funny, Google delivered their software and the partners their hardware...
Re: Stay tuned...
"Millions of voice "cuts" are extracted for long time storage as part of a system called MYSTIC that's been running since 2009, according to the latest tranche of leaked documents from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden." in El Reg
"The National Security Agency has built a surveillance system capable of recording “100 percent” of a foreign country’s telephone calls, enabling the agency to rewind and review conversations as long as a month after they take place, according to people with direct knowledge of the effort and documents supplied by former contractor Edward Snowden." in Washington Post
Re: Stay tuned...
"I believe that Snowden has already "spit out" everything"
I don't think so...what about the last leak of a whole country mass surveillance?
Of course the term was unknow, they knew it by the acronym MSIRP...
Re: Apple just isn't world class in security, and never have been
i recall an NSA memo where they say something like "iPhones are marvellous devices that provide plenty of information", which means, at least to me, that the NSA didn't need the help from Apple. But soon the iboys and igirls of this world started to use imessages, the DEA http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57577887-38/apples-imessage-encryption-trips-up-feds-surveillance/, complained about the encryption.
If this leak about Tips have some accuracy, I recall Nokia doing it for years on their symbian phones.
instead of the car makers play together to standardize things and lower prices with the OEMs, no, they go the Apple way...why is it that this recalls me a not so distant distribution/sales book agreement?

Re: I invite the US and the other 5 eyes partners...
Of course not, but Russian and China don't turn to media crying wolf that the Chinese were lunching attacks into to the "free world" like the US Gov like to do.
Re: I invite the US and the other 5 eyes partners...
On which ground? Ass to ugly? Anyway, when people get affraid to speak their minds, that means there's no guts anymore. But hey, if you like modern versions of STASI, then you must be very happy.

Re: Very cool
I whish more people stopped with the nonsense that schools must transform the kids in some kind of Einsteins or daVincis, As in any other job, there are directives to follow, and because of the bureaucracy that the Governments love to impose, less flexibility and time to be "creative". As a parent, it's ME who must encourage my kid to use the "tools" and knowledge that schools provide. But I guess that people think shows like x-factor, Big Brother,etc,etc, are more "creative" and better "models" for kids to follow.
P.S. try to be "creative" at work and see what your boss thinks about that.
Re: Very cool
I wish more kids had enought interest on science, arts, whatever, so more schools could encourage their interests.
Oh come on!
Think of the poor shareholders, they get none from this pile of cash as well!!

Re: @ Destroy All Monsters
" you toss him out of the plane and he's not going to find his next job as easy as the techie who has head hunters calling him 24/7"
Do you know a guy by the name Setphen Elop? That kind of CEOs are a must have in any head hunter list. Imagine this conversation:
Board director: "Hello? I'm speaking with <head hunter>?"
hh: "Yes, how can I help you sir?"
Bd: "We need a someone to be our new CEO. As usual, the person to be hired must be clueless, stupid, ignorant and who can carry all the blames if something goes wrong, because its the board members who are in charge you know?"
hh: "Sir, you are a lucky chap, we have 3 great names to recommend: Léo Apotheker, Stephen Elop and the cherry on the top...Steve Ballmer!"
@ Destroy All Monsters
"People who assume there is some magic entitlement to "lifelong job protection" are just fscking confused about the whole thing works. They generally are also union members and believers in the nanny state."
You must be a supporter of the golden parachutes and the obscene salaries that CEOs et al are used to. Because they really deserve it right?

Re: "Having faced down the totalitarian dangers of fascism and communism"
" I don't think that modern day Portugese would be overly happy being called Hispanic"
Not because we would feel insulted but because it would be a sign of ignorance from the person who was saying it, and we love(not) ignorants :)
But we do feel insulted when foreigners insist talking in spanish with us (especially the spanish people, the fact that we kick their arses many times in history don't help I guess eheheh). At least, unlike most of the Americans who visit Europe and intoduce themselves as Canadians, we don't go abroad and say that we are spanish :-P
finger to you sir...
