because cisco might argue with you there
dont drink the apple flavoured coolaid my friend
"Apple is contesting the decision on the basis that Gradiente failed to make use of its trademark within the five year window, states the Journal."
ok so the brazillian company applied for the trademark in 2008, they made it in 2012 - thats 4 years... is apple hoping that their lord and savior Jobshova will change spacetime to make their statement correct?
does physics actually matter in a universe with apple in it? is the answer to that question 42? seriously the world according to apple make no sense.
looks more like an iphone than the galaxy s does.
how long before apple sue i wonder?
"The first hints that Samsung was looking to Tizen as a possible replacement for Android came in June 2012, when the mobile maker sunk $500,000 into the Linux Foundation, which oversees Tizen development."
not so much, try googling LiMo - you know... what Tizen was called before it had a name change, or simply look at the Tizen Wikipedia page. hell just check your own archive http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/01/26/limo_founded/ from 2007 no less
gotta admit though. its a lot closer to the truth than what american schoolchildren are taught about how al gore invented the internet using a series of magical mystery tubes.
Re: Macturbate / mac-tur-bayt (verb)
and i thank you sir
for proving my point so well ;-)
Macturbate / mac-tur-bayt (verb)
v. to pleasure oneself through the use of an Apple product.
Once Mike gets the new iPhone he's going to macturbate for a week straight.
If whilst macturbating to your new iDevice you do not get irrationally excited and pompous, you are holding it wrong.
(should be added to the register lexicon imho)
its obvious innit?
apple has altered the male usb connector 'just enough' to claim that its a different and 'new' product
now they will patent their 'new' usb end using their favorite sympathetic court of law
stand by to see them suing the ass off of every single manufacturer out their next year for making usb ends too similar to apples "original and innovative" proprietary design.
its what theyve done with everything else and its made them a fortune, why stop now?
oh he'll pull it off alright - but having to land and spend 12 hours recharging every 100 miles will be a pain in the ass
Re: Super fast planetary formation - why?
your comment is way too sensible, the holier than thous will be salivating at the thought of jumping all over it just to feed their egos
is it just me or do some "scientists" seem to completely dismiss obvious and simple ideas for the most far fetched ones?
dust around stars disappears! must be super duper fast planet formation!!!
or maybe just a migratory planet(oid)s orbit caused it to drift through the solar plane which contained the dust causing a large portion of it to be scooped up to the planet(oid)s surface due to gravity, something we can infer from accumulated evidence happened many times in our own solar system setting a known precident.
NO!! MUST!! BE!! SUPERFAST!! PLANET!! FORMATION!! MUST!! HAVE!! CRAZY!! THEORY!! TO!! GET!! MORE!! FUNDING!!
Re: "petty and unprofessional"
that the new definition of honesty then? nasty hurtful and mean?
guess you use the wikipedia version of the dictionary then
stupid buggers screwed win7 as well
i have been having this exact same issue but with .net4 patches (KB2600217 & KB2656351) since monday
always on pc is NOT free
just me or was this idea touted a number of years ago?
2005 to be precise
giggling like a schoolgirl on nitrous
lol Al Gore?? lolololol
series of tubes! rofl
isnt this the exact same rumour that was flying around for the last 2 versions of iphone?
i was interested in it before from a materials standpoint only to discover that the phone was standard kit and only the lil pokey thing was liquid metal - next will be the rumour that the entire samsung galaxy s3 will be entirely made of gorrilla glass, oh wait they said that before too
those korean guys have some imagination.
"and feature Siri-like voice commands........"
ok so it'll only take commands in certain american states, and then only to direct you to the nearest old folks home when you ask it where the nearest chinese restraunt is located?
colour me excited
Re: scientists need to go back to school
i gather the 'Fail' icon was for failing to see the point, your link is to an entirely different event, which i might add was never misrepresented as being a natural explosion.
scientists need to go back to school
large marine creatures do in fact have a tendency to "explode" re: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/3437455.stm
land mammals have a more porous skin allowing gasses to seep out and not build pressure - marine creatures on the other hand have a much thicker hide with a lot less porosity allowing pressure to build until the creature splits or even explodes.
ill be happy when they make a mousemat that charges my wireless mouse as i use it - those buggers eat batteries
other than that im really not bothered until they can keep devices charged WHEREVER you are (a la teslas wireless energy ideas) or better yet keep electric bikes and cars running nationwide without the need for enormous battery packs and 13 hour stop offs to recharge every 100 or so miles.
that would be a proper technological advancement - but remember the priorities, wireless mouse = first pls.
im still waiting for someone in power to ask the question - why arent all the highlevel americans (including white house politicians) who supported, often openly, the IRA being shipped to gitmo? people who had limited associations with organisations classed as 'fringe' are being targeted by 3 letter organisations so why not those in power who support(ed) actual terrorism?
of course the answer is that it benefited the US gov at the time by destabilising the UK (thanks both bush bastards, bang up job ya did there, hope you both burn in hell tormented by all those who died) but how is anyone supposed to take anything the amercians say seriously when such hypocrisy is so plainly open to view?
no they dont
creative had that goin on years ago with the 4 icons at the base of the screen for their devices
own work and designs? LMAO
apple only wishes it was their own design
have a close look at this and then tell me jobs shat out the ipad in a cloud of diamond dust and unicorn vomit.
i pray for knight-ridder to appear in court when apples lawyers are in full flow and introduce themselves with a polite "excuse me, heres a summons you arrogant tossers."
or perhaps i should just email a copy of that story to the judge concerned and laugh as apple sinks in flames.
i think youll find that there is NO evidence that duggan fired a gun - NONE
the evidence the police presented in their defence has crumbled around their own ears already - the bullet found in the police radio? came from a police issue mp5, as usual theyre covering their own asses
the modified pistol found at the scene shows NO signs of having been fired and there are huge inconsistancies as to where it came from or that duggan was even in possession of it
i can see their point...
i mean its obvious computergames are the cause, police killing an innocent and then beating the shit out of a minor are both much less likely to be flashpoints for violence than a computergame.
besides its not like the police would want to move blame away from their own actions is it?
a company called "autonomy" has already done this (and released a preview iphone app with an android release in the works) called "arusama" http://www.aurasma.com/
paris, cause if anything needs augmentation its her - shes got a face like a battered trout
apple buying glass cutting machines?
not so likely, glass used in curved screens and lenses is moulded then ground, not so much with the cutting
personally i think this is great news, perhaps now that SSD's will eb made and used in much larger amount the prices will finally start falling making them more accessable to the average consumer.
its only ever when big business makes moves like these that prices ever drop for the mainstream.
doesnt el-reg have a vehicle capable of landing on other planets?
and its made from paper to boot (you lot missed out on publicity/advertising there, foolish)
all it needs is a means of getting there
stick a paper plane on a rocket - fire it at mars and voila, hell you can do it with a bouncy ball
just cause something 'can' land somewhere doesnt necessarily mean its a good idea or serves any real purpose beyond publicity
He's not so much moving tech or engineering forwards as reusing 20 year old tech - the original submersible was designed and made in the early 90's, not that you'd find that out from the press blurb on the whole matter and the only real upgrade is the re-enforced pressure hull added in 2005 - just check it out under its original project name of 'deep flight'
in fact they did it years ago - and better
they built a version of the shuttle (called the buran) which flew autonomously and had a greater payload capacity (than shuttles themselves even) and flew it in 1988 - america is once again behind the times somewhat in space flight
not very well explained
its not that they cannot prove that Manning gave the material to Wikileaks (and therefor Assange), but that they cannot prove that Assange actively helped/assisted or coerced Manning into doing so.
a subtle but important point.
"the Guardian - also late to the story"...
hmmm yes the guardian is so late it beat you to the story by a full 3 months, but yes they were indeed 'late' as i have seen this story floating around for at least a year
-12? try -20, Northern Ireland IS still part of the UK you know, much as you mainland crowd try and ignore us when your not overcharging us for stuff
Ok let me get this straight - - if the current US governments response to North Korean aggression, which is to send in carrier group of one carrier, 3 destroyers, a missile cruiser and at least one nuclear attack submarine (on top of the 28,000 US military forces already in South Korea) for some hardcore posturing weakly disguised as "training" is 'showing a lack of backbone' then what exactly is a proportional military response? Another long drawn out war that cannot be won and is nothing more than a sinkhole for money supplying her corporate cronies?
Someone should staple her lips shut for 3 damn good reasons.
1.. that mad tart will start a war that will end humanity with her lip flappin if given just 0.00001 percent of a chance
2.. she would make a lot more sense if she simply said nothing....ever.
3.. i would find it terribly amusing to see if such a well practiced mouth breather could work out that its possible to breathe using their nose before asphyxiation set in.
Paris, cause she knows what a mouth is for, how to use it. not to mention that its impolite to speak when its full ;)
we want pics...
or it didnt happen
she needs to do something with that face, she looks like a bulldog licking piss off a nettle
the reg needs a section dedicated to these mishaps methinks
did this one also take 7 minutes constant on a slowmoving, non-evading target at close range?
useless until it can take down something small and fast like a mortar or missile NOT a drone
btw - if they really wanna test it wrap the target in shiney reflective tinfoil and see if it still gets burnthrough
dumb as a rock
"We only use information that is publicly broadcast. It doesn't involve accessing the network to send or receive data."
really? so if the 'phone' doesnt recieve any data from your router (re bssid) then how is this information helping the phone find its co-ordinates? inbuilt crystal ball that guesses its near your router?
i for one welcome the arrival of beings who dont give a shit what the latest celebrity douchbag ate on some piss pot jungle island - that alone proves their advanced intelligence - if they in turn eat the celebrities.... BONUS!
he just doesnt want them to recognise him for what he is -
a dalek minus the outer cover that can only repeat 3 sentences over and over and....
if it really is like the heavier fractions of oil then one use would be fueling large ships
marine deisel is very (very) thick, almost like tar - in fact a lot like tar as it can easily become a solid and must be heated to 'thin' it slightly for pumping to the engines
theres a huge market for that if it burns well enough
surprised you didnt add the live webcam link so we can all watch the event
theyve (verizon) been providing business solutions here in the UK for some time, residential and wireless were only a matter of time
yay for the day when the rozzers come knocking on my door.
"sir we have reason to believe you are in communication with foreign terrorists"
"sir we have evidence of thousands of emails from well known nigerian terrorist finaciers which you contrived to hide in your spam box to discourage investigation"
'you mean spam?'
"come with us please sir, you have no rights to silence, legal representation...blah blah"
best delete all those "grow your penis now" and "if you send me £x ill pay you £million when i get it from wherever" spam mails, wouldnt want them to be considered links to terrorism now would you?
so just your average politician then? ;-)
the 'life support systems' in a cessna are wings and an engine. yup i can see why that would be unecessary extra weight.
idea - kick general atomics and their $3.3million pricetag in the balls and just fit cessnas with the avionics and sensor gear. they can even be outfitted with missile pylons. shitload cheaper (cessna caravan can even be bought with the sensor package pre-installed) in purchase, shitload cheaper to run (parts cost next to nothing and are mass produced), and with spare cockpit space used for extra fuel tanks theyd beat the loiter time for predators/reapers.
but they dont look as "cool" so itll never happen
legal order to disperse?
surely you mean 'illegal order to disperse', as the right to assembly is guaranteed in the united states constitution. add to that the illegal detention of uninvolved students in their dorms and the intimidation of other uninvolved people trying to get home or pass through (constitutional right to free movement) including criminal assault of all the above through use of batons and tear gas (a chemical weapon no less) effectivly an illegal imposition of martial law as the governer of the state nor any acting official in government or the supreme court of sufficient standing declared a state of emergency.
its not some wannabe anarchist with a laptop and a mobile phone that should be in court.
