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.
Re: I'm conflicted.
Having walked round one on display I can say with some authority the answer your looking for is 'freaking ginormous'
Its nice to see someone picking up the banner the USA dropped. I remember watching the moon landings in open mouthed amazement as a kid, nice to think my grandkids will be able to do the same.
Been a long while coming though
Re: Some things shouldn't be plugged into the interwebs
Costs always seems to beat security although, of course, the bean counters never seem to factor in the costs of stuff being nicked.
Re: @Martin 47
That's the point I was making, same as speed cameras, they don't catch speeders, they record the number plate of a speeding vehicle.
Anyway onto more important topics, best offer for my magic beans seems to be a tenner for three, anyone want to better that?
$500 000 just to track where a lanyard is? Wonder if they will be interested in these magic beans I have for sale?
Re: I don't like this story.
Happily I am not particularly keen on either company
MS decision chain.
Tester 'its shit'
Low management 'its ony fit for use as fertilizer'
Middle management 'it will help things grow'
Senior management 'excellent, lets role it out'
Ah, Hmmmm can I say that, er, I quite like twitter? Used properly its like having your own forum populated by people you find interesting.
There is no way that I would ever give them anyone else's email addy though.
If I was a gambling man and thought I would live that long I would happily risk a few quid at the bookies betting that mankind will have a working FTL drive before the end of this century, I suspect I wouldn't get very good odds though.
Still wouldn't bet that in a million years a voyage of 13.3 billion light years would be feasible, although I am not going to down vote you because I admire optimism, however misplaced.
Bet Obama is rubbing his hands with glee at the thought of getting rid of texas
Re: Wasn't this more meaningful when...
Bloody hell, think of how much money you could have saved if you had bought one good smartphone, one good PC and one good TV instead of following fashion.
Kids leave home and go out and have a bit of fun! Shock horror!
Lol That's the sort of email that guarantees more leeks. Top man management skills
....... actually I think you will find it was New Labour which did that and it was you scum that voted for them.
Actually I think you are being unnecessarily wordy there. I prefer;
Yours sincerely etc etc
Re: I wonder how far it will fly?
I think you are forgetting about the heroic pilot they had on board, you should give the little hero full credit for managing to fly it back so close to the launch point.
Looks like the yanks have not appreciated this either.
Re: Now I hate Win 8 as much as the next man @AC 08:53
errr.... if anyone puts in a post that they are the person who likes marmite they will (not unreasonably) get my downvote as soon as I see it.
Who is going to be laughing a year from now? My guess would be Samsung with the googlie one acting as straight man.
Think your a bit optimistic there, personally I think 'they have sold it' is more realistic
What he actually meant to say is 'we are really going to show the world just how much bloatware its possible to put on a phone'
Re: Calibre is your friend
Exactly, all my ebooks, bought from whatever source are nicely backed up on it, we really do need a smug git icon.
Oh and while we are at it can we have a 'daft twat' one as well for whoever at Amazon thought deleting customers books from their kindles is good for customer relations
Re: Religion is the problem
Hmmmm its not religion, its the fuckers that use religion to increase their own personal kudos, power etc that is the problem.
If there were no religion 'they' would just use some other means to do the same thing.
In reality someone using their right of free speech to protest that someone else should loose their right of free speech opens the door to quite a bit of mockery, add in protesting against the 'age of mockery' and my irony detection meter is in danger of busting a spring.
The whole 'make the desktop more amazing' thing just about sums up why I am an ex ubuntfanboi
I initially turned to it from windows because that OS moved (for me) from one that enabled me to do what I wanted to one that I had to work around to get things done, and I moved away from Ubuntu for exactly the same reasons.
But hey, it was fun while it lasted.

Actually it actually seems quite good except it will only hold 5 books at a time, not entirely sure how much of a problem that would be though
Of course everything should be in SI units, that includes aircraft height, speed, etc etc Its not as if any pilot is going to use a reg article to navigate by is it?
Right I am just off down the builders merchant as I need a couple of metres of 4 by 2
