Call forwarding? Hardly revolutionary.
Ring desk phone from iPhone, desk phone rings.
In what way do they want it to be more seamless than that?
They have done and do. They just raise the version number and push it out again and it is downloaded and installed despite you expressly hiding it.
Windows 10 update roll-out not going quite as planned due to people being put off by data harvesting, phase two of data harvesting underway...
Just as well or they'd screw that up for the rest of us too.
From the tone of your post I can see you haven't actually tried to rock up to an Apple store with a broken computer and see how long you have to wait...
If you don't want to throw away a morning or afternoon waiting for a Genius to tell you what you already know (it's broken) then you can always book online and wait days instead.
One thing is 768 vertical, another is 16:9 which nobody had the cheek to sell you 10 years ago.
If you want some stats...
Until China stops exports to the US in retaliation... I wonder who will blink first.
Sound icons con tabs are coming soon and you can set Flash to clixk-to-play already.
We are recovering your files from our Utah data centre.
I can't help but notice the heavy presence of the word notary as as if it were a guarantee, which usually indicates some kind of charlatanism is being practiced...
The Red Kipper flies at midnight?
So how's the fingerprint stored? Because Android doesn't inspire confidence in this area (see recent security flap for one model which stored them in a world-readable file).
And what about false positives for HTC's generous fingerprint recognition?
Also dual SIM phones which sacrifice the SD card never seem to cut the mustard, you lose the SD card and it might be restricted in some other way (2G only/no data).
It seems any improvement in Flash is done first by Google and second back ported to NPAPI and ActiveX. So yes it is a bit embarrassing.
Well actually you're not far wrong, it's letting a room privately to someone. If you do that you must be on the tourist register and you must meet minimum standards which basically don't allow you to let a room privately in a flat to someone, you've got to set your flat up as a pension.
And you can't get on the tourist register now anyway because the new mayoress says there is too much tourism. But instead of restricting by zone she's knocked it on the head completely while a study is carried out.
Let's read it and see how they've managed to screw up security yet again.
If Grandad's not live on the Internet then he's just a malformed HTML form away from being it. Perhaps that's the next lesson...
What Android needs is an option on the security settings screen which automatically sets everything to their most secure settings, or simply not offer them in the first place.
In fairness to Google they should bin pattern unlock with Android M.
The local economy benefiting is not the same as a couple of locals benefiting. Just because the local signmaker is the mayor's brother-in-law it doesn't mean that that EU funding's done anything useful.
The economics of why they couldn't hire a professional translator despite having a huge budget. Or cultural working practices which allow bodge jobs like this.
Not AI. Who said AI has to understand the world using human language? The original Terminator used 6502 machine code and still managed to wipe out a load of humans.
Net neutrality and QoS are two entirely different things, you can have net neutrality with or without QoS and vice versa. It is important not to confuse the two. Net neutrality (or lack of it) is billing concept, QoS is a technical concept.
The best solution for the surgeon is a network with QoS so video has priority and with net neutrality so their connection isn't throttled for not paying the Mafia fire insurance.
Also worth noting "best effort" is a technical term which can be found in many telecoms engineering manuals and RFCs when referring to QoS. Once you get into the wonderful world of cablecos charging for content and so on then of course they redefine everything as suits them, including QoS.
I think it wasn't till OSR2 or something that Windows 95 had built-in Internet access with Internet Explorer.
If you wanted the Program and File Managers back you had until Me, you could run them or change the shell in the ini file. So you had about six years transition if you wanted. It wasn't like Windows 8.
MS just copied the best ideas from the Mac, the Amiga, and the ST and ended up with system which was actually quite usable. Nobody could argue that it was worse than Windows 3.1 or DOS.
Unlike Windows 8...
Somebody post the permissions...
I give it three years before Google changes the calendar API and Samsung doesn't update the fridge.
But isn't that time to post on El Reg? There is such a thing as market saturation.
As the other two gentlemen said, it's about the EULA and what is uploaded to Redmond.
"Buy now before we foist Windows 10 on you."
Something tells me that the current MS under SadNad wouldn't be too disappointed if it went that way.
On the other hand Uber just hopes to operate illegally in countries to gain critical mass then hopefully that will lead to the law being changed so they're legal afterwards.
Stick with the browser and the plug-in (I hope you mean add-on not NPAPI plug-in), who knows what the desktop client is up to.
It's not a social platform, it's streaming radio. People either listen to adverts for free or subscribe to not listen to them... anything else and they're getting ideas above their station, certainly if they think they've got a right to upload people's photos and contacts.
(station... did you see what I did?)
Holding down power/power + volume up/power + volume down for 10 seconds usually gets you a reboot if it's frozen.
Use the web version of Spotify so you're not using the desktop version which can get much more information from your computer, in a private window so it can't get to your Facebook profile, deny location information, and log in with a Spotify login instead of a Facebook log in.
Log into Facebook from a non-private window and change your Facebook password. If you use a Spotify account linked to a Facebook account then unlink it, if you log in directly with Facebook and want to carry on using the free service then open a new Spotify account.
In the longer term, look for another service.
And those of us who never linked their Spotify account to Facebook or used a Facebook account to log in can sit back feeling smug.
Isn't this what Orwell warned about?
Posting shill? Post anonymous.
If we're talking about the corporation then how about an alphabet of flaws?
A moonshot of flaws...
Something else identified with Google. A beta of flaws, a hipster of flaws?
So your anti-scam idea works except for the kids, the old, the mentally ill, the parents who don't have time to keep on top of all the latest scams, and probably a few more I've forgotten. So basically it would be perfect if the world were full of young single people who were mistrustful of everyone and are gifted with the ability to distinguish between a legit advert and an advert which looks legitimate but is full of lies.
In the end, without regulation, what you get is lower consumption not higher consumption because nobody can believe anything.
This book has eight old weird tricks that make regulators angry...
If you want to really want to disable Pocket included with Firefox, then go to about:config set browser.pocket.enabled to false and just to make sure it's dead set these keys to empty strings...
You weren't aware of the antigravitational properties of freshly awarded diplomas on young ladies? The effect has been documented in the UK press since about five years ago IIRC.
Psychologist Emma Kenny recommended: "Do not study psychology. You'll be reduced to eating out of bins and selling soundbites to anyone to make it through the next month. Forget the fucking iPad, if how I'm professionally prostituting myself in this press release doesn't make you want to study, nothing will."
Here's a qute from someone on Hackers' News which spells it out...
"Oh, come on. Just connect your Google router to your Google fiber connection and connect to it with your smartphone or laptop running a Google operating system and Google browser. Visit your Google home page (using Google's DNS servers, of course) to read your Google Mail, or perhaps catch up on the news with Google News, or use Google+ to see what your friends are up to, or get a little work done on Google Docs. Should you do some Google searches and end up on some non-Google sites, don't worry - you're still safe under the watchful eye of Google AdSense and Google Analytics. What have you got to be so paranoid about?"
It's got BSD, POSIX, and X11 if you install the app. How much more geeky do you need?
