Yep, stick it to the little guy. How noble!
You mean you're done doing that after making the worst possible changes you could?
"And it would have required ZERO DESIGN SKILLS."
Which, coincidentally, is exactly what they have demonstrated here.
total agreement. I thought someone had deleted the CSS.
Ditch all the random pictures in the middle of the article list
set the size and position of article headlines to be easily scanable with the eyes.
LOSE THE OBNOXIOUS POPUP MENU
No story should take up half the screen, I don't care how good/bad your cromebook printing was
Honestly, we could probably do without the righthand menu.
for the love of all that is holy, make it scale dynamically to width.
Would like the contrast between clicked and non-clicked articles to be back to normal.
Look at the bright side, we now know if we don't like a film we just need to make threats against theaters to shut it down.
In unrelated news they are doing another bad Star Wars film.
Except for the last one, those where covered by the article. You did read the article before commenting, right?
Yes, it was clearly on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard'." Can't imagine how they missed it.
But I'm declaring this one "not evil"
"I suggest you read up on it, greed is one of the seven deadly sins and being sin is thus classed as evil. Your literary ignorance knows no bounds."
So is envy.
Personally, I like hubris. I think that's my favorite deadly sin.
You're acting like that lack of safety is "news" or something.
works fine on crome for me.
I am a little out of date though
"Actually it makes sense. How many people do you know who'd willing act like your typical troll if they didn't have anonymity? The tactic works. Case in point: google Curtis Woodhouse Twitter Troll."
Except that it undermines everything TOR is about. They might as well close up shop and go home.
Why would you want that piece of trash when you can have QNX?
That's ok, a lot of people don't survive the killing fields of Chicago's summers either.
I've never understood a right to privacy in public. I mean, it's public. That's kinda the opposite of private.
"Oh, I don't know. Maybe they could listen to the radio or watch TV or buy a fucking newspaper.
How do you think?"
Why would I do that? It's 2014, almost 2015, I can have a collection of à la carte news at my disposal for free, covering multiple perspectives on an event.
You can wade through a two-hand tall stack of periodicals every day if you like. I'm happy having google do it and collate it for me. If some pissant publisher doesn't want google showing their headlines, that's fine, I'll just not read them.
The difference is they actually asked people what they want, and appeared to have listened this time around.if no major changes happen, 10 looks pretty good at this point.
(I have a machine running the preview)
It's not about value, it's about cool.
A Lego watt balance is vary cool.
can I get 4G, please?
I'm not convinced that the offending parts of Title II wouldn't apply. Once we say the internet is covered under Title 2, I would expect all aspects of Title II to come into force, not just the ones that make us feel warm and fuzzy.
I've yet to see a compelling legal argument that says why all of Title II wouldn't apply without gutting and rewriting it. You may think it's nonsensical, but a nonsensical law is still law and courts will try to enforce them as best they can (rather then trying to just "unwrite" something that's been on the books that long).
agreed, these are definitely criminals. for crimes against the English language!
If you're not a "Homo type thing" what, praytell are you?
Homo Sapiens want to know!
I'm suspecting you're a fanboy trying to discredit legitimate issues.
My email is now FUBAR. 2/3s of the time I get a never-ending bar and a message telling me it's retrieving my messages, along with a complete inability to see my calendar.
My Battery life has been halved. I'm afraid to spend even a day anywhere that I don't have a charger. I have no idea what I'm going to do when I go to my sister's for Christmas. I'm really hoping it's fixed soon.
This all worked just fine on Kitkat.
Merging Mail and Gmail.
I could deal with it if it actually %@#$ing worked. 2/3s of the time it just gives me a blank screeen with a bar "retrieving your messages" and makes my calender show nothing.
Unless you're using gmail, the gmail.app is crap.
I'm not sure "do they still exist?" is exactly the best defense in an anti-trust case...
I looked up the political leanings of the Ft. Lauderdale commission. There is only 1 Republican on it, and that's the same guy (Roman Catholic) who tipped the balance in favor of a resolution in support of gay marriage.
You might want to reconsider some assumptions.
Pretty sure those are already illegal... along with consensual acts from adults who look too much like children and non-consensual acts (maybe consensual too, I start to get confused at this point) of drawings (can a drawing consent?) which appear to be youngish-looking.
"In whose opinion is Google's opinion wrong, and why should we believe them?"
Think about that question a little more. When we ask Google a question (where can I sign up for an email account?) we want Google's opinion. If we didn't want Google's opinion we would ask Bing! So when we ask Google this question, would you expect them to say "gmail sucks"? Of course not, they think gmail is fantastic, and that's a legitimate opinion.
Some agree. some don't, but I would only be shocked if Gmail DIDN'T rank at #1.
Why would NZ shoot him down anyway?
Clearly the US would do it.
"I reckon you could get crowd funding to start producing that...."
I'd chip in a couple quid.
You don't have to have been a facebook user to have had your information analyzed though.
I do not, nor have I ever used facebook. someone takes a picture which I am in, they tag my name in the picture. That image is not able to be cross-referenced with anything anyone has said about me in facebook's DBs. That's not even taken into account if they where to choose to sell it, where it can be cross-referenced with someone else's DBs.
You shouldn't have to actually be a FB user to get in on this.
"Put a bullet in the little traitor."
You'll hear no complaint here, line the NSA against the wall!
I feel the same way for the opposite reasons.
On the one hand, if you ever seen a BSA audit, turnabout is fair play.
On the other, it's the IRS.
Possibly because he's a Russian author and the Russians have laws about "homosexual propaganda."
(as much as I, or maybe even Sergei Lukyanenko may dislike such laws (I don't really know his sexual politics) dislike such laws, they exist (In fact, not having read the book, that is stands out may be considered a subtle commentary on this situation).
the first one is much easier to type, although I think most just type whatever they're looking for into the bar at the top, let the browser forward it to google and let the chips fall where they may.
That kinda confirms my thought.
"Oh, that looks good, shame I have resolved not to give EA my custom"
Thanks for the comment (have a thumbs up), It helps my resolve.
Google kinda supports this nickname... i mean all their OSes are named after candies.
"it stopped being justified anger after three days of constant bleating. Its a game, many people should just get over it, get a refund, get on with life."
I would agree, except they are denying refunds. FD is being scummy with this whole deal.
"Will the 'net connection be required to actually run the game even in Solo Mode though?"
Yes. A low bandwidth internet connection will now be required. Originally this was not supposed to be the case.
elReg bender cookbook for me?
I need to try all these.
on the information superhighway, so when is my ISP going to stop charging me?
we keep sending "whiney and warbly signals ... for no discernible reason!"
Last I looked (just now) they are still stupid-priced. I haven't seen any serious marketing for them (honestly, until I looked I thought it was still invite-only). Combine with the fact that it makes the most anti-fashion statement ever (I mean really, it doesn't take a genius to make the boom cover the entire front so you don't look like a complete doofus), only a handful (okay, maybe it's some pretty large hands) would ever sell.
Without any kind of promise of a userbase, of course developers are going to not waste time on it. I know people think writing code is all about heart, but honestly, most developers still have families to feed.
Big bussness can't take your money. You can give it to them, but TAKING it is the purview of the tax-man.
I'm glad I wasn't alone in this thought
Really? Mine's been getting vary crashy lately. I'm strongly considering replacing it with a nVidia Shield (or another device which supports gamestream).
How many places can I actually get google fibre in? It's not "9 metro areas," it's 3. Those 9 may or may not happen for reasons Google may or may not be able to control. I stand by my statement that it's only available in 3.
But let's forget that right now, even IF we give them the nine, it's still COMPLETELY USELESS if you are not in one of those 9 cities.
New York: Nada
Las Vegas: Zip
New Orleans: Ziltch
Those are all major metro areas, Google isn't even talking about any of them, let alone those who aren't in a metro area. Even if we assume that everyone Google is in talks with becomes a completed roll-out RIGHT NOW (and I think everyone can agree that's... unrealistically optimistic), it's still such a breathtakingly small percentage of the US that it's not really worth talking about.
I stand corrected, 3 cities.
Justifiably, the actual content from the ToS and what the "privacy basics" page says is completely different.
