Why on Earth the patent offices wherever they exist, don't provide a probation period where an individual or a company could fill an objection online against a filling patent PREVIOUS to examination?
Thats because you never heard about Brazilian wax I suppose...

"and drives innovation
I'm sorry but, by innovation from Microsoft you mean what? Being around 2 years behind the others in terms of features and functionality?

Two possible answers
"PrOn ath the BBS"

Re: BAD idea
"Imagine dropping one of those buggers in a busy pub. 30 fiddly little parts scattered across the floor.
Train platform droppage: also bad."
What's the difference compared with the old feature phones that after a drop? And what happens to a shiny last generation smartphone after the accidents you described?

"Everyone is replaceable and that's why you have to maximize the companies profits to remain within the company. Just showing up to work each day is NOT sufficient.
They they are so valuable, then they will be working again soon...else the unions need to build their own company and employ all those workers."
You are talking about the crap of CEOs that plague the world, right?...
Privacy and respect
Whatever happened, how did it happened, EVERYONE has the right to their privacy and been respected. Period. All the people that cross my life can be confident that I'm a trustworthy person. I expect from other people to respect boundaries to. What's up with people to not understand this??
As a father of a lovely girl, if one day a prick do something like this to her, the pig can be assured that I would record him being sodomized by a horse.
P.S. Girls must start making videos too, maybe after some jerks watch online that they can be exposed as well, this trend would stop...
You are thinking medium-large companies, not individual-small businesses.
@ Kristian Walsh
For an individual or a small business, bulk licensing its to expensive (and check the rules here http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/licensing-options/open-license.aspx)
"In addition, unless you have a volume licence, you can only use Office RT in a non-profit business environment. Redmond is expected to detail a roadmap for Office, including Office RT, in the next few days."
"In the 2520, Nokia has actually developed a grown-up computer that makes RT viable in business for the first time "
XOR. Without any doubt.
Re: 2hrs 45minutes and still not done !
"If you aren't patching your base install image, you're doing it wrong."
The scenario was a joke but just to please you, imagine that the box was needed to test a new setup, something that never happens right?
Anyway, I can have a new desktop configured with my full setups at home in 1 hour using linux and that while with an eye at the TV. I wont see myself waste such amount of time with windows, I have better things to do.
Re: 2hrs 45minutes and still not done !
It was a joke but you still dont get it. If you had to make a fresh install, while you wait for the updates on windows, you would have a linux box installed, updated, configured and ready for the user. Heck, even installed at the user's desk...
Re: 2hrs 45minutes and still not done !
"Yeah after a fresh install you've got a 600-700Mb update-fest, but most normal people leave that run overnight instead of sitting there watching a progress bar"
Boss: I need a desktop with a fresh installation, ASAP, FOR YESTERDAY!
You: Yesterday?? You mean *tomorrow* right?
Boss: Yeah, tomorrow you dont need to come over!
And from the Taskumuro's article, Elop's vision that the US market was more important than the rest of the world and that the MeeGo team had no N9 sucessor with LTE support, thats a non argument. Which model from Apple supported LTE? iPhone 5, released in 2012, September. Which was the first Lumia to support LTE? The 820, relesead in 2012, November. Elop saying that the N9 was inferior to the 2007's iPhone its an infamy and a utter lie.
Nah, they choose the Bosch component because it was the only one who could fix the iMaps misdirections.
I can't stand Nokia stories anymore, to much bitterness now. Its to sad see great engineering f*cked by ego-management. In the end, its the beancounters who destroy a company.
I suspect that the other option for CEO was Bill Gates...I recall the rumours about a angry Bill when Nokia did everything to stop Microsoft to enter the mobile phone market. Later, the same Nokia accepted to be on bed with Microsoft just to not give Google more power. We know which decision proved to be more successful. Tiresome.
proprietary device drivers
"The recent vulnerability in the Exynos5 chipset in the drivers used by the camera and multimedia devices creates a hidden Suid"
That's the problem with the closed nature of the device drivers...
Hey Elop, time to another Burning Platform Memo!!!
Sell, sell!! Buy, buy!!...
Nuff said :-)
"Android's growth has been spearheaded by Samsung, but the manufacturer is now seeing its share of sales across the major European economies dip year on year as a sustained comeback from Sony, Nokia and LG begins to broaden the competitive landscape," he said.
Yeah...Samsung its losing market to Nokia...And Android to WP8, but lets forget that Sony does only Android phones and LG favours Android as well...this paragraph its hilarious :-)
I will not downvote in order to annoy you.
"Are you out of your mind?? We're done, leave tomorrrow!!"
"Wait, please! Here, take these shares, they are nice right? Right??"
Since I favor Bluetooth over Wi-Fi, maybe using the VDP profile (see https://developer.bluetooth.org/TechnologyOverview/Pages/GAVDP.aspx), streaming the display content to the car would allow the wireless operation that you want. If it was a Symbian phone I know that the battery would last longer but the OS it's now history...
Convergence for me will go well beyond the smartphone thing, the Cannonical idea of having your desktop on your smartphone along the usual features its the next mobile computing, IMHO.
"I just hope that if something like this does happen the manufacturers will come up with a standard cradle/fitting so that all phones from all makers can use the same kit."
Maybe, but right now they insist in having an Apple connector and ignore Android, providing an USB connector only...
You can always charge wirelessly your smartphone's battery but, like it did happen before, having something so close to your privates that can explode, I don't think its a good idea...
We will see convergence with smartphones, not some dedicated hardware. I imagine pluging my smartphone on a dock and the car interacting with it, not the way around.
Worse than the fanboys are the winboys, and oh boy, they think they are better than Eadon....
""the hardware looks great, but I'm never using Windows, I wish it had Android"
Where I implied that ma'boy?"
In a substantial proportion of your previous comments."
Care to point them? I'm really curious because if I wanted a different OS on the Lumias it would be MeGoo, or maybe you think that's same as Android...
"Can we please deal with the fact that Nokia runs Windows Phone and get over it"
I couldn't sleep well since Elop tied Nokia to Microsoft...sigh...
I can always use an abacus...
I was teasing about the fact that Andrew being so supportive about Windows Phone OS, spent almost the whole review talking about the hardware, which I've stated already many times that its what differentiate Lumias from the "horde" of Windows Phone offers. So, after saying that...
"the hardware looks great, but I'm never using Windows, I wish it had Android"
Where I implied that ma'boy?
"if you don't like it please put a sock in it"
If you jump the gun so fast, I think its you who are in need of a sock...
So, the Lumia 1020 its a nice phone because 95% of its appeal came from Nokia superb engineering and not all that much from the remaining 5% from the OS?:-)
"Apple's 2 year design cycle looks blisteringly fast in comparison."
Design cycle?? Entertain yourself with this video and Apple's "design cycle" LOL
"it compared itself to luxury carmakers Mercedes-Benz and BMW in a blurb posted on its new online retail website:"
Mr Tim Cook's Reality Distortion Field its hilarious! I'm sure he knows that BMW and Mercedes innovate and change the design at each new generation of their car lines...
Everyone knows that a kitten's photo would be more effective among Mac users :-P
Its understandable that the reporter take the N9 for a Lumia. The microsoft marketing droids tried hard to pass the idea that the first Lumias were the original design...
I suspect that the acquisition of Nokia was more due to bids that were made from other companies than Ballmer's "brilliant vision"...let's face it, contrary of what the reporter says about Nokia selling well, it only looks good compared to other WPhone OEMs. And without the marvellous image tech, what's left on a Nokia Lumia compared to the other offerings on the WPhone camp?
Microsofts needed more Nokia than the opposite. As for the internal changes announced by Ballmer, if he says that he didn't planned stepping down from CEO so soon, I wouldnt be surprised that the changes were pushed by someone else.
Re: Blah blah blah
So cool an US corporation having the means to store fingerprints! That way no need to wait to someone visit the US to scan his/her fingers and eyes! And so easy to make silicon replicas and put you on a cooked crime scene!
Yeah, call me paranoid and publicity sucker...
Re: Affordability my arse
I'm sorry but you are wrong, its arse free.
"The iPhone 5C, he said, is "highly recyclable," featuring arsenic-free glass,..."
P.S. "It's manufactured from a single piece of hardened polycarbonate and is available in five colors: white, pink, yellow, blue, and green." For a few seconds I thought "Nokia!", I wonder why...
Re: Getting your imitation in first?
The reporter is well know for his fanboyism :-)
"Samsung is not a great innovator, yet it’s certainly one of the world’s greatest imitators."
He prefer to forget that Apple imitates also, otherwise, why launching a Mini iPad and an iPhone with a bigger display? :-)
"its upcoming Android-based Galaxy Note 3 VLP™ (that's a Very Large Phone)."
Yeah, with the Notes Samsung was a really imitator, not creating a new market themselves with inovative software...:-)
And the best gem in the article:
"This is certainly how Apple would have done it, and it’s how all the other smartwatch makers - established brands and startup alike, including Qualcomm - have approached the market. "
So, if it was Apple presenting a "smartwatch" (whatever its that...), it would be pure genious and inovation! But because it was Samsung, it's an imitation of others...
Re: "Oatmeal Beige," and "Rose Gold"
You can't use the Champagne word! It's "Fizzy White Wine Color"
"But if copyright laws were used, how would MoS go about it? Copyright has become significantly weaker in the digital era, as the law has failed to keep pace with technology, eroding the ability of an individual to protect their property."
Can the reporter explain us how in the old days of the K7 and CD, the copyright was stronger in protecting property compared with the "digital era"?
Re: Finger on the trigger
"Ah yes, you mean like how Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG, etc. stopped using Android when Google bought Motorola ... two years ago ... ?"
Like one said already, totally different. All the OEMs were well established with Android offers. I think the reasoning at Google was simple: if Samsung(from times to times they threaten with other routes, I wonder why...:-) ) and many of the other Android partners abandon ship, Google would have an hardware manufacturer at the backyard to keep things going on. Right now, with Motorola they have a place to play with different paths and create prototypes. If the OEMs can't differentiate their Windows phone offers (UI) and Nokia mastering the black art of miniaturization of cameras on mobile phones, what's left?
I will repeat myself again because the "DIFFERENTIATION" argument its used often and more after Elop used it. It's uter crap.
