I bet comets are crap sent out of the spaceship by the little green aliens
Where I live, when we don't understand something, people says "that's chinese for me". I wonder what's the chinese version for this..."that's german for me"?
1. This "Tsar" uses an iPhone, otherwise he will be aware of the Android feature.
2. I'm all for the selfie, but only if the mandatory selfie is a pennis or a vagina.
Distracted reporter or
mishaving autocorrect? It's Jean-Claude...not Jean-Claire...
Just for big guys?
I have little hope that small players/startups could have access to that nice millions...but Europe can have good alternatives to the american offers. And with lower operation costs, like installing the datacenters in Scandinavia or in the Baltic. The Baltic countries are a good place since they can buy cheap electricity from Ukraine and help the later strengh their economy.
Re: Another week...
Because you are a pro, right? LOL
"And keep all the people inside dry."
And nauseated in a mountain road.
" And warm."
Gore-tex and electrical jackets, electrical grips and seats.
" And have conversations."
Bluetooth intercoms. If you don't like other people's music you can have your own. You can share music and phone calls. And even better, you can talk with your fellow riders riding their own bikes.
"And a stereo."
"And stay alive."
When you take a shower do you use an helmet?
Why the cars reviews? And more important, why are motorcycles not reviewed?
Re: "mainly used against women"
"Because most blokes wouldn't care."
MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH, sure sure!
"So which half of the equal sexes is wrong - blokes should care more or women less?"
I suspect that you are one of the kind who love to say the word slut...
To *any* person is, take photos of the other person or no photos allowed at all. It's a shame have to give this advice of course, but there are to many immature people out there. But having photos in your possession maybe it would work as a good deterrent.
"We’ve known for years that Microsoft makes more money from Google’s Android than Google does itself"
There is multiple ways to see it. OS license sales maybe, but Google sales tablets and smartphones with a profit, not to mention the ad revenues. But as for hardware sales, we can also say that Google makes more money from their hardware operation than Microsoft will ever made :-P.
As for the other Android makers, HTC and Sony are a strange case. HTC makes great hardware but hit by lawsuits, bad management decisions and alienating their most loyal costumers by not updating flagships models were to much. If they colaborated more with outside developers they could have done better.
Sony...they do colaborate with external developers (freexperia, fxp) but releasing a barrage of high-end models every 6(?) months it's crazy, makes any costumer staying always in doubt when and what to buy. Why Samsung has a great success with the Notes? Software...
Just a note: I've been thinking about how one of the android makers could get away from Google and even if I'm of the opinion that it looks almost impossible for now, Samung, with their deep pockets maybe have a chance. A partnership with a cloud player (Akamai for example), a share of that 19bn that they spend in marketing to lure developers and revamp the hog that is TouchWiz, who knows?
I for once
don't mind if Vodafone gets its way, but only if they stop peados from using the roads. Peados drivers are the worst scumb on Earth because they make me arrive late to work.
Yep, nonsense induce more nonsense.
Nice try...but the thing is, people *have* the choice of *using* a normal delivery and a fast delivery, paying more it has nothing to do with net neutrality.
I hope to be wrong, but the tone that Andrew put between a engineering major and the other majors it's very worrying...or is it that he is surprised to see non tech people be more vocal about net neutrality?
There are trolls and trolls...
"Rackspace just wishes that more companies would follow its example and fight patent trolls in the courts, rather than caving in."
When a company like Apple fills for laughable patents and love to be a patent bully, there is no hope for othes to follow the example...
Someone did say "Naked king"? :-D
Andrew is one of them.
"It isn't just Apple that looks a little less miraculous today – the entire consumer electronics industry looks a bit tragic and battered"
Dear Andrew, you are plainly and utterly wrong, as for the other makers that is, but trully right about Apple.
Examples? http://motorolaara.com/ and do you remember this video that people mocked at? The Samsung Youm? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7vZtZw-JxM
Samsung will make bendable displays, be assured of that. And if Google kick their buts off, they will revamp their software, there are so many ways to do it...
I don't know how is it nowadays, but my Nokia 5800 Xpress shamed any music player (be it Apple or whatever) in the market, between 2009 and 2012. I even recall one of my colleagues miffed when we compared the same music at the same bitrate and with the same headphones and he found that is beloved iPod was beaten :-P
I can devise harmless torrents files that get concatenated with...whell, you know what :-P
"So how will the three people in different countries learn about a secret warrant served?"
Easy. Just set up a user login (not canary of course :-P), and only use it to send an harmless email like "meeting at 8pm". Or even better, just use that login to sign in and sign out into a dormant server. The server in turn will email the 3 person. Done.
When will they learn that a smart TV without a remote with a proper keyboard its idiotic?
Trying the netbook hijacking will not work
Since 2006? That reminds me a colleague of mine who loves to use one of the production AS400 to test code...but sometimes he gets his punishment, like spending a whole weekend reverting the results of his stupidity :D
Educate the public
My experiments on educating my friends and fellow works showed me that only the ones that really appreciate their privacy where interested in my advices. For the rest it was something like:
"so, you dont mind that someone from the law agencies read your emails, listen to your conversations,etc,etc?"
"of course not, I don't have anything to hide!"
"but that's the point, why spying on you if you are a good citizen?"
"thats to find criminals and terrorists and paedos!"
"but you are not none of these...*sigh*...ok, so, if you dont have nothing to hide, can I access your email? As a good friend of yours I'm concerned that you one day can kill yourself"
"I see...so, you mind that me, your best mate, who you know would never do anything against you, have access to your email, but care nothing if some dude, because wears a government badge, access it at his/her will?"
Between "reality" shows, talent contests, brazilian and brazilian-style soaps, the 10 mins comercial breaks and the news that some footbaler has a new g/f, what's left? Not to mention that the money that governmens provide 99% of the time ends in the same old producers...
"most likely due to the complexity of the equipment and reverse engineering required.”"
They plugged the lighbulb counterclockwise?
Re: Well, well, well. I perfectly well understand that the expression "allies"....................
Everyone knows (our at least should be), that what in fact happened its that the german banks were the ones who got bailled out, not the other way round. At what cost? Public debt on that countried skyrocketed.
Re: Somewhere along the line PEOPLE get involved
"then there will be a home-grown skills shortage that will thoroughly stifle tech progress in China."
Each year China have new graduates in the thousands, do you really think there will be a shortage?
"Why? Because the first thing an IT grad/professional in China does on gaining a few years experience is start scouring the global job market for opportunities. "
You are making assumptions from a non.Chinese perspective, you are not considering how patriots they are for example. And Im not aware of any trend about hiring Chinese graduates in the West.
Constrainsts vs Bloatware
"An application developed to deal with the constraints of the 80s and 90s, or even early noughties, would never take full advantage of the new platform, he argued."
Yeah, make sloppy code, no problem, if there is any performance issue just throw up more resources on it ...
"A 20 year old bug has been discovered in an algorithm so pervasive it's used in the Mars Curiosity rover, cars, aircraft, Android phones and a string of popular open source wares."
And iOS and OSX as well. There, the reporter was distracted I'm sure...
Where I live, sometimes I have the impression that the cellphone companies are not competitive enough, but after reading an article like this...my former telco provides a VoiP number even in the most basic tv+phone+internet package. If I connect to their network from abroad, using open wifi, I was able to call for landlines back home for free...
"You will be able to access popular apps such as Groupon, Netflix, Pinterest, Candy Crush Saga and Minecraft – all available for direct download!"
Something's wrong here...no Angry Birds??
Like your mouth sometimes, but...but...but...nobody cares!
Maybe FB trialled "Unlike" and it went badly wrong?
"My latest supply chain check indicates that.."
Let me guess: he warmed one of his fingers in the hole where the sun never shines and put it to the air to check the wind.
Re: Not renewables...
"Germany having announced "Kerntechnik nein danke!" is now in a stew over Russian gas - they are using the EU to try to block the South Stream so Russia will have to continue to supply Ukraine and thus Germany"
The germans (read politicians and industrials), dont give a shait about Ukraine, they have the Nord Stream already http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nord_Stream .
And its interesting to know who is onboard...http://www.nord-stream.com/about-us/our-shareholders/
Wait a minute...
A brit national using an EC directive to get results on a court? The same country that is so Eurosceptic (when its convenient)? Whats next, Eurobonds?
Is it me or I'm reading it as Nudity?
When I see someone proposing something to me without given the full story I tend to think that there is something wrong. Maybe they have good reasons to not given further details, but Im entitled to my reasoning as well so, I think its not me who are in the losing side.
"Piously, he reminds the audience that it's something America would never do: “We nearly are alone in the world in not using our intelligence services for the competitive advantage of our businesses.”
Oh man, I almost wet myself on this one :). Was the interview given after lunch?
I'm sure that I'm not the only one in thinking that all this rubbish trend about collecting information from your body it will produce tons of hypochondriacs....
I just imagine myself heading to the parliament with this marvell with me...
Re: Dear Europe
Because voting in the traditional parties are much better...
Re: GPS is shite ....
"Because I can, I stick my Nokias GPS "here" drive app on, most journeys. It invariably chooses the "wrong" route."
You can't badmouth Nokia HERE here...the software now runs on windows phone and its "perfect"...:-P
Re: GPS is shite ....
"I've been using Satnav for over a decade, first using Tomtom on a Nokia N70, and it is far from anywhere near capable of finding the truly quickest route given the time of day and day of week."
Make a test with Sygic and let us know how it went :-)
That's what all the Americans need, and a good kick in the teeth to Comcast et al
"Damage caused by privileged users is the most extensive, the hardest to mitigate and the hardest to detect as it is done by authorised users doing things they are authorised to do,"
They are talking about the likes of CEOs and CFOs cooking the numbers?
"They are often very technically savvy and have elevated access to systems making it easy for them to cover their tracks ... cases of fraud and theft by privileged users often go undetected and unsolved."
Like what happened at Enron and Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC ? Yeah, a bunch of DBAs, Network ops and Sys admins criminals...
"About a third of respondents said access right policies were well defined and controlled by IT."
Well trained and well informed companies?
"Organisations had been defrauded by staff stealing real estate client lists, patient health care records and corporate intellectual property."
Yeah, a gang made of DBAs, Network ops and Sys admins...
If, just if...
the courts were entitled to half the money the lawyers get paid in patents cases...you know, for the hassle, paperwork and the taxpayers money spent so they can have a court of law to annoy people...zZzZz uh?? Damn, I was dreaming....
"God alone knows what the real truth is."
The truth is that its the best Youtube channel ever!
