How long before
I becomes a tool of movie studios and record labels.
And file formats.
Re: Give it all to us ..
Kill broadcast TV Win, Win.
With cable/sat TV and cell phone providers often owned by the same people it's a double win to get people off broadcast TV, not only do they get more mobile space, they get more pay TV too.
I expect the brown envelopes are flying.
No garbage can for us
Triad is centered on
two one main design principle: We thought it looked cool.
Re: Did the BBC just troll people?
"suspension of disbelief finally broke that a lizard could transfer oxygen back out of its blood and into its lungs in order to then breathe that oxygen into a human."
That's exactly what can happen. If you fill your lungs with oxygen free gas (like helium at a party) the oxygen in blood will defuse from your blood back into your lungs, and you pass out in seconds. There is no active transfer going on in the lungs, it's just diffusion from higher concentration to lower.
If anyone wanted a giant iPad
There would be sales of giant android tablets (much like the smaller androids were selling well before the ipad mini was released) but I've never seen one outside of a showcase.
Book a hotel...
Your going to let Siri pick one? Will it pick the cheapest one? The one that gives Apple the biggest kickback? Will it look it up on some rating site to pick a nice one?
Will you yell at Siri if it picks a rat infested dive with broken AC?
Will Siri post of fancebook
Begging for extra lives for candy crush?
Will your friends phone automatically supply them?
But didn't that Orlowski guy say Kickstarter was crap?
Guess I'll have to go put in a few $.
David Irvine, who yesterday likened “metadata” to a telephone directory.
A telephone directory that lists every call you have made or received.
You could get a surface, they already have full screen video ads (both the MS solitaire and weather app have them for example).
I wonder who has the patent for full screen video ads on a mobile device.
Re: Dazed and confused
Apple used to be very responsive to their customers. Back when I had an Apple //e for example.
Re: Buying HP
For the past few years it's been all "what can we do to make the stock go up today" and next week was too far away to worry about.
People working on new ideas for products that will not ship for a year or two? Axe them we will just buy a company when we need new products.
Lawyers get all the money, big bosses get get out of jail free cards.
Everyone else pull my finger.
How about the lame surveys posted by SEO companies to make it look like some crappy facebook page is getting traffic.
So the LED lasts the life of the car, or until the fan fails?
Or will the headlight just turn off when it overheats?
Can you replace the fan, or only the full module?
Re: They've got you...
But they have to make sure, so they will take your computers, phone, and just to be sure your toaster. You might get them back some day...
If he did sell copies of a cam video on facebook (not sure how you would do that, it's not ebay) he should be in trouble for gross over charging.
I expect the 700,000 number is the normal pulled out of their ass number.
Re: Too Late Now
Even if (a big if) this applied to automatically triggered photos, the National Geographic article would still be copyright and add value over just a bunch of photos.
I remember a story (think it was National Geographic) about a chimp that was taught to use a polaroid camera. The actual low quality photos (that would be public domain) were a very small part of the story.
It's still not luck
" They are all "lucky accidents". A wildlife photographer once told hme he's lucky if he gets one good action shot out of 50."
If you give the same camera to Joe on the street you would need luck to get one good shot in 1,000. It's not luck, it's just hard.
Luck can be involved, I have a photo with bird feet at the top, and cat paws at the bottom. It was just a bird when I started to press the shutter, but I still pressed the shutter not the cat.
Re: Seems to parallel the Orthodox Jewish Sabbath rules
When ever a rule inconveniences someone with power, a loop hole will appear.
Marxism my ass
It's pure capitalism, and it's not new.
Most stuff is created by many but owned by few. And the few work hard to make the rules to their liking.
How much do the session musicians behind a boy band make when a song reaches #1.
What do the staff of a startup get when it's sold for billions? Often a pink slip.
Life +70 copyright? Yes, that's for the poor starving artiest.
The US Patent system? All for the inventor right?
Re: Network Distributed Credentials
Then you get things with hard wired "secret" passwords for the convenience of the makers support people.
Re: @Velv - Architecture should rather scream
"why are you paying these imbeciles ?"
Because the last one kept telling us we couldn't do stuff, or that we had to spend more money for stuff we didn't need. This one is half the price too.
Re: Trying to get app COUNT up
Look at the RT app store.
Half of the "TOP" apps in most categories have less then 10 reviews. Most of them are bad reviews.
Re: never going back
You can gold-plate a turd, but it's still a turd.
Re: Will they even bother with the plasticy iPhone 5C?
Just stick some diamonds on it.
Re: Excessive damages
I think they use it to calculate drug value on the street too.
No it should work great, like windows 7 on a netbook.
So how much apple stock do RBC Capital Markets have?
Pump and dump for the big boys? All legal of course.
I think they will need a backdoor
I'm sure the cops will want a universal pin so they can investigate any evil people they see walking down the street. Maybe 8008 would be a good one.
Or they can just try 1234 as that will work for 80% of people.
The same asshats that
Modify their pickups to produce thick black smoke screens for fun, will be able to add a second button to send fake messages to cars behind in the smoke screen.
I have not seen the Tripp Lite cables before, but I see they have a load of them available now, and they do look just like the new amazing coming soon apple cable.
Re: Rag tag
Would you have to stack them if you were making fun of a Fox news story?
I have not seen one for Windows 8, but I expect it just says "something happened".
how many times it had paid for an exorcist, psychic or religious healer...
If I had reason to believe they were wasting money on that type of crap it would not be a strange question, just one they would not want to answer.
"many requests were also for information that was freely available on council websites"

Re: The big problem up there
" going to be moving at much the same speed and general direction."
Expect some stuff is in a polar orbit, and some is equatorial orbit.
I once found someone in our office selling customer email addresses to a spammer, I only found him because he as really stupid. Someone at booking.com could be out to make a little extra cash on the side by selling info.
Re: The NSA has users ?
And they don't sell them, they trade them with other spies. They want to collect the whole set.
You don't even get free email or cat videos how can you be a user?
"The seven Cook & Co staffers worked at the Apple Store in Fort Lauderdale, and are accused of working with phone thieves to exchange 600 stolen mobes for legitimate handsets. Police estimate the alleged scam netted the gang's leaders more than US$500,000."
So 500,000 for 600 phones... or $833 each?
Or is this the "for every one we found we guess there are 20 more" type math?
You can tell how long a sale person has worked for a company by the size of the number on the end of their password.
Re: "Best is cheapest"
Even if the battery was cheaper Lasts half as long, costs 1/3 the price. They also have to pay someone to go out and replace the battery, and I expect that costs more then the name brand battery.
I have seen an A cell a 1/3 A cell a 1/2 AA and an F cell (you can find 4 inside a 6V lantern battery). B cells exist but I've never seen one.
Re: Free parking at a dead meter?
Same in Canada, people would stuff the slots with crap, then park for free so they went to broken meeter = no parking.
"You hear that? Pilots use it
But they use it to fly the plane, not send stupid tweets.
I expect this would be safer then the idiots who text and tweet now with their phones despite any laws.
But not as safe as people who keep their phones in their pocket when they drive.
How about Adobe Reader, it keeps trying to install chrome and make it my default browser, they should totally block that!
Less hazardous yes, cheaper no.
They will do anything they think they can get away with for cheaper.
Stop using hazardous chemicals in the final production
Where they were not using them before.
Will continue to use them where they are using them.
In other news Apple has also stopped using Broccoli in the production of it's iThings.
Wheeler is just going to do what his bosses tell him to do.
Yes it's been done
"No doubt sound will get reprocessed to multiple channels too - if it hasn't been done already."
Yes it's been done. Yes it's been done to things that really don't need it. Like a DVD of old 40-50s cartoons with 5.1 sound.
