Weapon of War???
There isn't actually any solid evidence in this that these weapons were ever used in warfare rather than just for hunting.
Re: Nice troll
Rape was uncommon, even unheard of, in hunter-gatherer tribes because the levels of promiscuity were so high that no one really felt the need. It's only once people started getting agriculture, property & religion that some idiot decided people needed to get all repressed.
I presume this is a way for Google to steal patents from people.
I will miss Flash for one reason. All the shite "interactive" websites and animated ads will be harder to block in the future. No longer will the 'disable plug-ins' button be so so useful.
Set your browser to pretend it's mobile safari and the BBC will give you the non-flash version.
Ford used to try doing this kind of crap all the time, people always got round it.
I think that smaller chips are more susceptible to radiation damage as well.
You do realise they had to launch this thing a little while ago right?
Re: Go MS! - Actually customers should come first
"Incorrect. A company such as MS should be looking after the shareholders"
Well theoretically looking after the customers means they want to buy your product and then the shareholders are happy.
Regardless of the rights and wrongs of the case itself surely that is contempt of court?
The main problem with the iPhone correction is it keeps trying to take out my swearwords.
You can't patent something that's been published in an academic journal.
Given how many people make impulse buys of new gadgets and leave them sat doing nothing in a few months this isn't surprising. For this to have any real meaning you'd have to compare this survey with other products.
I think that point was there to try and head off a load of pointless bragging from Fandroids.
What's with the fahrenheit, are we in 1923 or something?
I've avoided Game ever since the manager of the local store treated me like some kind of moron because I wouldn't buy his stupid extended warranty. Even if he was right and the extended warranty wasn't a rip off, treating your customers like crap is a great way to make sure they don't come back.
Being as it's Sony then you'll need special power convertors that cost more and only work on Sony's stuff. They'll also sue you if you use them to look at non-Sony products and put a rootkit on them for good measure too.
If there are more Android users than iPhone users how can using Android be not following the crowd?
How I Met Your Mother
The most damning result of the survey was that Android users generally like 'How I Met Your Mother'.
I'd have to agree with that. A lot of people seem to find it hard to separate the wonderful, benevolent overlord image they have of Google from the reality that they are another major multinational corporation like Apple & MS. Everyone has a favourite technology company, that doesn't mean they are your friends or your fairy god mother.
even more dumb
their point doesn't make much sense to me as employees don't normally get admin rights on their computers anyway.
WAIT BUT IT IS MORE
WHAT ABOUT YOUR ELECTRICITY!!! WILL APPLE PAY FOR THE MONEY IT DO COST ME WHILE I DOWNLOAD IT?????
WHAT ABOUT MY INTERNETS COSTS FOR TEH DOWNLOAD????
WHAT ABOUT MY DINNER ON THE DAY I IS DOWNLOADING IT?????
APPLE NEED TO PAY ALL THIS OR ADMIT IT COSTS $1M FOR LION REALLY?>?!!!!>!<$!
We are not entering a Maunder Minimum. Lewis Page says so, but the scientists he refers to do not say that. It's wild speculation.
Of course particle physicists aren't too stupid to understand climate models. However, they won't have the full appreciation of all the details as that takes time and effort, time and effort they'd rather spend on particle physics.
"No. However what I will say is that under UK law, if a front door is left open and you walk in, you cannot be charged with breaking and entering. "
If you steal something when you're there you WILL still be charged with theft though.
This whole thing is basically a personal rant about not wanting to pay again. It's a total red herring. Unless you are in some strange 0.0001% of consumers who's paid hundreds of pounds on apps (if this fictional person even exists) then financially this is irrelevant. If a new phone is more than £50 cheaper than an iPhone you can probably buy all the apps again and have some change left over. If people buy a new iPhone instead of a new Android/RIM/WP phone instead this won't be the reason.
I have a couple of games for PC and now I have an XBox, should I call EA & MS up about giving me another free copy? Or should I stop, think for a minute and not whine like an ass.
Maybe, but then if Apple are happy to let you put an app on up to five devices and the app vendors are happy with that too I don't really see the problem with one copy for a family.
No ice age
Frank Hill didn't say we'd be heading into an ice age, in fact he said:
"We have not predicted a 'little ice age', We have predicted something going on with the sun."
"the authors of the work seem to use PGplot for their graphs."
No, it's IDL.
XCode still doesn't have a FORTRAN compiler though.
