I guess Orlowski has never been to a music biz conference. The delegates look pretty much the same as the PP members in that photo.
AC/DC music has never been sold digitally before
Did three decades of Compact Discs pass them by?
What part of the phrase "taking the piss" don't you understand?
Mozilla exists to make the Web a better and more open place. Google exists to make more money for Google.
If Mozilla gets less coverage in the non-tech media then the answer is simple: put a stupid cartoon on their site and change it regularly (works for Google) or change the boss to a polo-necked plonker that thinks he's Jesus (still works for Apple).
Any slightly competent UI hacker could remove the CC: field from the Compose window. There may even be an extension already available with the similar functionality.
...I wonder if the photographer (MobiusCo) or the model (Mercedez Lee) were paid by GoDaddy. That image doesn't appear to be available via MobiusCo's online store.
Yeah, technically it's kind of filtering
It's filtering. And anyway, the weirdos will just use other distribution channels.
internet service providers will be required to block some content
How is this backing down from Net censorship? It looks like mandatory filtering to me.
How about hiring Gary McKinnon? He sees to know his way about their systems.
...with more yet adverts and intrusive corporate branding.
The only enrichment happening will be the pockets of the Zeebox execs.
Yes, 15 minutes of ads to an hours programme. Says it all really.
Only 15 minutes? Luxury.
I guess that you're not in Australia where the commercial channels can slip 25 minutes of adverts in to a one hour slot. Just imagine a imported BBC programme with a running time of 59m 20s and then have 25m hacked out. It's sacrilege.
Fox is having a bad week. I did laugh.
I thought serious people stopped using that word in the 90s.
The .it admins do have a sense of humour though. They allowed fuckw.it and likewise the .at admins allowed arseh.at
Candidate for oxymoron of the day.
At the risk of being seen as a bit of a swot for Albanian linguistic fluency I can tell you that "Enhance the image of the note." is Automjeti im është plot me ngjala.
"Users typically rely on photos for storing information,"
Never take photos of your passwords.
...I whittled all my crap down to the absolute essentials* when I emigrated. Overseas shipping costs tend to concentrate the mind somewhat.
*The books, LPs, CDs, cassettes, VHS and V2000** tapes still weighed in at over half a tonne, IIRC.
...what they all said above.
...but he appears to have massive, titanium-plated testicles.

Those pesky law things again. They ruin everyone's fun.
If you're going to sail about the oceans proclaiming that you're enforcing the law then you better f**king well abide by the law yourself. That's how laws work, innit?
Yup. One question, though : who the hell do we vote for?
I'm fairly sure the Pirate Party and possibly the Greens are against it
You need a better trademark lawyer. There's plenty of prior art for TIFKAM.
Can't believe it took this long for someone to cite the lyrics to The Good Ship Venus, and then mess them up!
I can't believe someone didn't get the joke.
'Twas on the good ship Venus,
Owned by a bit of a penis,
The figurehead wasn't a nude in bed, it was deliberately omitted as it spoiled the clean, white lines with minimal visual intrusions and personally overseen by Sir Jonny Ives. Blah, blah, blah, Jobs is God, etc.
"Like Japan, Singapore, and South Korea, the Gillard Government is investing in super-fast broadband because we understand how fundamentally important the digital economy is for Australia’s continued economic growth and social well being," Conroy said. "This will enable Australians to import high quality Asian porn much faster than before."
I talked to the NBN folk a few weeks ago and it looks like we'll be getting our fibre in around ten years time. You'd think an area prone to major natural disasters combined with unreliable Telstra infrastructure would be nudged up the waiting list a bit. Apparently not.
It was a day trip and really effing dull. Don't bother. It sucks.
This is obviously just a cheap Chinese copy of an iFish that Steve Jobs created millions of years ago.
Old men who try to wander round visiting young women for a chat are viewed with suspicion by everybody of course.
This is known in science as the Savile Effect.
...by Orlowski. Who'd have guessed?
Andrew, you should also be asking why Thatcher didn't ask more questions when Savile was a regular Xmas guest of hers at Chequers.
You also realise that questioning Savile's behaviour was much like asking if Mother Teresa watched porn, don't you?
...Barry Nelson in the 1954 version of Casino Royale and David Niven in the 1967 version of Casino Royale.
They just want their pr0n delivered more quickly.
Can we start with the mail and text exchanges between Cameron and Rebekah Brooks?
...what are these adverts things of which you all speak?
We will not be enslaved through coercion, but by the lure of convenience.
Excuse me while I steal that for my quotation file. That is excellent.
...I'm kidding, of course. It's Sky and they are a useless bunch of c**ts.
It didn't put an end to it. I had a call on Friday here in Aus.
You know there are more to staff costs than salary, right?
Yes, I know. You know I didn't even imply what you think I said?
each member of staff at Facebook's UK division cost the company around £275,000
I think I know a way that FB can go into profit...
...didn't Churchill's grandson get a multi-million quid handout from the lottery for all these papers and now people are expected to shell out again for access?

I know what pedantic means and I know what good TV is. Channel Ten has never troubled good TV with so much as a glance, let alone any money.
