Re: AC Re: Lots of prior art
Unfortunately not: any invention/process/patent developed whilst in the employ of the M.O.D. remains the property of the M.O.D. - or at least it did when I was working for them during late 70s/early 80s.
Re: Well done dickheads
I used the NFU to insure my Land Rover Defender for 6 years (IT worker, 15 years no claims and clean license for 22 years) until they increased my premium by 100% at renewal time.
Reason: everybody drives 4x4s these days...bye bye NFailU.
Flash crash...two versions of flash active?
Go to chrome://plugins and disable the flash version that *isn't* \PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll
Just a database snafu...
...for branded email accounts hosted on the Google backend I suspect.
"Dear Google user,
We’re getting rid of over 60 different privacy policies across Google and replacing them with one that’s a lot shorter and easier to read. Our new policy covers multiple products and features, reflecting our desire to create one beautifully simple and intuitive experience across Google." etc
I've only just realised whilst cutting and pasting into this that it was sent to my ntlworld address (and subsequently fetched into my GAFYD-hosted address).
Anyone mention Zune?
The deluded Monkeyman talked that fail up too.
“The biggest advantage we have over Android is that you don’t need to be a computer scientist to use a Windows Phone,” he said.
500,000 Android activations worldwide every day - that's a lot of computer scientists.
Fake Mansell in spamvertisement shocka
@mansell_Nigel is the real Nigel. The Lion tweets, finally.
That is all.
And the Dext (Uk's Cliq) too.
MotoROFL lied and stated in public (CEO @ trade fair, Facebook status update, Twitter feed etc) all handsets on 1.5 would receive an update to <gasp> 2.0, but then announced the Dext (but not the US Cliq iteration of the same handset funnily enough...) would be stuck on 1.5, sorry about that.
F**k Moto, I'd rather suck the shit out of my dog's arse for a £10 bet than ever buy a Moto product again.
@Android OS nupdates
OTA updates for the Desire HD are carrier-dependent, here in the UK at least.
Unbranded DHDs worldwide got the update first.
Iran will not be allowed to continue developing its nuclear program under any circumstances.
Stuxnet + the assassination of the two nuclear scientists has set the program back years.
The alternative - military strike on the facilities right now - guarantees considerable loss of life right now and massive instability in the region right now.
Years ago ntl were blocking compromised cable connections [PCs] and redirecting web page requests to an information and resource page.
I found this out on a Monday morning, after a friend had left his laptop plugged into my router overnight on the Saturday...
Foobar 2000 => Airfoil => Airport Extreme =>
WiFi network => Airport Express => spdif => DAC of one's choice.
Control it either via VNC on your "lounge laptop" or via foo_httpcontrol foobar plugin/smartphone browser.
Streamed lossless over the network too.
Just when you thought Jobs was beyond parody...
...he authorises the release of an "update" to bias out the signal strength meter.
The anandtech piece explains that the meter does in fact offer a non-linear user experience in areas with patchy coverage, but the aerial design/reception issue does actually exist.
Therefore the "update" lives in that neat little crevice between fact and FUD, most impressive indeed.
Since the iPod Mk 1 was released, Apple have demonstrated a pretty impressive climb towards the summit of industrial design - until today.
This is not the beginning of the end for Apple's image, but certainly the end of the beginning.
Search doesn't search Trash by default.
Actually, it does:
"Deleted messages match your search. View them or go to Bin to delete forever."
And there was I thinking that "Audiophiles" had the market cornered in magic crystal/green pen/snake oil gullibility.
I'd LOL long and hard if lives weren't at stake.
"no discount on calls made over your femtocell, and data usage counts against your fair-use cap in the usual way"
At the LEAST, data routed through the femtocell should be exempt from the "f-u too" cap, upstream data backhaul isn't my problem.
Oh dear, still missing the point I see...summary disconnections are not going to happen no matter what Mandy states.
The point is that people who do not share copyrighted material will not get prosecuted for sharing copyrighted material., and any ISP are going to provide some firm evidence before proceeding with anything.
Stating that they definitely will disconnect just like that is the usual FUD-tastic Freetard posturing, which is hardly bringing anything worthwhile to the debate.
Erm, I said *prosecuted*, not *accused witout even a court summons*.
That most subtle of distinctions lost on you then?
Loving the Freetards' gotchas!
Which are about as plausible as:
"Well nurse, I was climbing into the bath you see, and didn't notice the bar of soap I must have slipped on - my kids must have left it there - and I really have no idea what that cucumber was doing floating in there either" lol.
I mean, has anybody ever been prosecuted for *not* sharing files?
And it's hardly likely that one is going to get nicked for catching up on the occasional missed episode of Holby City is it?
Drug smugglers, thieves and terrorists prefer..
As if we didn't know that already duh.
prior art already
My Dell XPS with fingerprint reader, I log in to my account with finger, have different applications enrolled with different fingers - and when Vista UAC prompts for Admin rights elevation I swipe the finger registered to the Admin profile...
@ Err... #
It's easier to use than to explain but...It's the gmail equivalent of a "folder" filing system that can filter a view across inbox/sent/archive folders, sort of like a category - and yes, an email can have more than one label.
Hysterical FUD, nothing gets broken...
Type your search string into your google apps-savaged Outlook search box and whack the enter key - and within a couple of seconds the results are returned. I'm not missing instant search here.
It is actually a pretty impressive achievement from google (aside from the continuous sync errors being returned during the initial mail sync - which can take a little while with a decade of .pst to upload lol). It's hardly surprising that MS are worried.
And what's wrong with Windows search on Vista anyway - it is blindingly fast and does what it is supposed to? Only a 'tard would get annoyed by a MS product actually working.
Been a while since I commuted to (or even lived in) London, but for anyone who hasn't used the Central Line @ Bank, the rail screech is SERIOUSLY PAINFULLY loud either in the carriage or on the platform, caused by the short-radius curved tracks.
Should've handed out earplugs.
Very rarely see less than 18mbps here...

Very happy VM customer here (I don't work for them and have been on the same length of fibre optic since ntl were known as Comtel :)
comprehension skills lacking?
Lols to all the FoxTard fanbois who can't read *...*:
"Cybercriminals have begun attacking a critical hole that Microsoft *patched in its Internet Explorer 7 browser last week*"...
I use FF myself but refrain from posting like a retard on teh Internets.
“The 'Browse Photosynth' functionality broke right after we submitted the app to the AppStore,”
So shite, sooo Microsoft LOL.
AND I'm a Windows guy with an office full of WM-powered smartphones...
IE7 => Protected mode in Vista = no vuln
Unless I've got that completely wrong - and protected mode is the default setting for the Internet zone security.
