NSA/GCHQ worried they are going to be underfunded next year and decided to take matters into their own hands perhaps?
Ahhh for the good old days when an old spam filled email account and a password was all that was required.
They are still here except people use gmail instead of yahoo or hotmail.
Oooh I know the answer to this one, is it Microsoft?
A much more difficult question would be why?
Parkingeye and Crapita, a marriage made in heaven, or possibly someplace warmer.
Re: Same as normal...
Oh yes, but the thing I find really annoying though is that the copy is better than the original
Is it just me or does anyone else think 'NSA employee' whenever I read a post saying 'its their own fault they were spied on' or 'its no big deal really'?
I suspect NSA has both the means and the inclination to do lots of 'damage limitation' posts on forums such as this.
Or an I just getting too suspicious and cynical?
OK, I will follow that account but my finger will never be far from the 'unfollow this ejit who spams my twitter feed with shite' button.
Oh and to all those who will down vote me because I like twitter I don't care. I like twitter because, used properly, it is like having your own forum populated just by people you find interesting.
Hmmmm so why am I following the register you may ask, gawd knows
Re: Region Locking
Being old and cynical I suspect the reason behind it is to protect regional pricing, however way you look at it, there is no benefit to consumers from this.
I think Samsung is aiming to take Sony's crown.
Re: Region Locking
Unfortunately that doesn't appear to be true, from other reviews I saw a couple or three weeks ago the region locking is just that, starting it of with a sim from the region or country you bought it from does not seem to change that.
Re: Is it just me?
I was going with 'aromatic farts' but yes I can see where your coming.
But, for some reason, aromatic farts seems to work quite well.
I am starting to think that the 'iwatch' is just a red herring put out to send competitors of on a wild Goose chase.
I would find that quite amusing
'driver a better experience by letting them out into a cooling flow of air'
Having driving the route in the past all 'the flow of air' does is turn the cab from an oven into a fan assisted oven
Re: And it therefore follows...
You seem to be saying that like its a bad thing?
Where's the confused icon?
Thanks Nate, its nice when people confirm stereotypes.
Re: Unintended Consequences
I agree with all the above except he/she would not be on a bonus, you have to be much higher up the Servo food chain than someone who actually does work for a customer to get any bonus.
Of course this just means that those who do get bonuses exert tremendous pressure 'downwards' to make sure the numbers show the KPI's are met.
Re: They are going to make a fortune
Good idea, send me one please.
Until then I will just carry on using 'hide all posts from this ejit' button on anyone who causes such things to be posted on my wall.
Re: How very sad...
You don't have kids do you? Or more specifically you don't have daughters.
Well XP will be running on my old laptop for as long as I can keep it going, no other operating system plays nicely with Civ 3 (the Civ3 complete edition is by far the best civ)
Am I the only one that thinks the more Google has tried to make its search results 'relevant' over the years the more irrelevant those results have become?
Re: And if they fail in court ...
But it's only popular because those watching it don't understand what's good for them.
Re: Lovely hardware engineering
Your a bigot, biased fanboi.......
Although so am I
Every article I read on astronomy seems to remind me of this old joke....
A mathematician, a physicist and an astronomer are on the train from London to Glasgow, as they cross into Scotland the astronomer sees a black sheep in a field.
Ah ah says the astronomer, a black sheep, from that I can deduce that all sheep in Scotland are black.
No, says the physicist, all you can deduce is that in Scotland some sheep are black.
Actually says the mathematician all you say is that in Scotland there is a field in which there is a sheep, one side of which is black.
Oh look is that my coat.
Oh sorry, its been in the news for a week now clearly we should move on and talk about more important stuff.
Talking of more important stuff have you heard that some bloke I have never heard of is going to be in the next big brother house? I know its, like, wow.
NSA not getting enough info then?
Re: Can you listen to the cricket on it?
... but cricket on the radio needs to have the crackle and hiss of long wave reception, oh and the gentle fading in and out as well, if it doesn't have that.........
.........its just not cricket
Except its not just 9 companies, it is looking increasingly likely its 40 plus companies
Big blue smoke screen?
Re: Deceitful O2
I really don't think they have anything to worry about regarding damaging their reputation for being 'bold, open, trusted and clear'
Now if they were concerned about their reputation for being 'underhand shysters' that would be a different matter, although on reflection, I don't think they need to worry about that either.
Re: Anything you didn't know?
Actually he is a European white male whose parents haven't died of anything nasty who is now at risk of higher life insurance premiums
So, if I understand this, if stream a movie it will have adverts placed in it but if I pirate it, then it won't?
Except you have forgotten that most judges are that old that still photography is new fangled tech to them
I do believe the googlie ones search results are tailored to an individual and takes into account previous search history?
So if someone was to be always searching for pirate music sites the search results would be weighted towards showing pirate music sites.........
Or do I understand Google even less than I understand the music business?
Whoo hoo! I can't wait, I am so excited about this!!!
For the benefit of any American readers there may be a faint hint of irony in the above, just in case there was any doubts.
Re: Giving Puffery the 'oxygen of publicity'
Think you are confusing PR types and marketing types.
Is easy to tell the difference, marketing types are the ones you shoot first.
Seems to be enabled by default in the android app, which is nice
We going to have this everyday? Can we not have just one article explaining if you are relying on just a sat nav to find your way anywhere off the beaten track you are an idiot.
Perhaps you could then go onto explain how some mapping software is better than others?
Just a thought.
Anyone care to guess on the life expectancy of whatever they have put in orbit once the US militaries space plane is launched?
To be honest if you drive off a tarmac road anywhere in Aus, but especially in the outback without being properly prepared, which includes decent paper maps, you probably deserve all that Darwinism brings you.
Of course the data wont be available to just anyone, it will be stored securely in the cloud and managed by a subsidiary of an American company no doubt, so no worries there then.
Probably better if she told them both that neither of them could sell any phones until the case was settled.
