Re: AC @ 12:49 - Google vs Microsoft
What about TypeScript?
Re: That's great...Orange
I'm not sure you understand -
Google pay Orange for fast connections.
Google stop paying, Google stop getting fast connections.
Have I missed something?
"embedding the censorship alert function in the HTML of its home page"
Can anyone explain how they did this?
Re: Spectacular Graph
and will finish in 2032....
Re: What comes to mind...
The issue is
the word is slimeballs?
Perhaps we should send Len McCluskey over there to sort it out.
What about the hand-carved C64?
Apparently this is the first police officer arrested under the investigation, all the other arrests have been journalists. I guess they must all have been getting their information from this one woman, either that or the investigating team has a massive conflict of interest.
I hope the courts make an example of her in the same way as they did the rioters.
...cue loads of freetards explaining how this is a conspiracy by MS & Apple to stifle St Google, and has nothing to do with Google stealing ip from technology companies to try and sell their adverts.
How on earth did they all fit?
That's why we use DB2.
The difference between Apple, MS & Google
With Apple and MS you are the customer, with Google you are the product.
Raising an event is now a side-effect?
erm... it does...
That's the point, Metro is for phone and tablet but it also works on the desktop, On the desktop you can switch to 'Desktop' mode when working and 'Metro' mode when you want to check your position on the Angry Birds leaderboard.
So you can run the same software on your phone on your tablet and on your desktop.
Google don't make money from selling Android.
I really wish the media (yes that means you!) would stop giving these morons the attention they so clearly want. Ignore them and they will go away.

"So, what you're saying is, the only reason people don't buy an iPhone is cost?"
Where did he say that?
FYI - Windows8 can run in 2 modes: 'Metro' and traditional desktop.
PayPal must be delighted...
Google are anti-competitive
Microsoft and Apple are engineering companies and they need each other - Microsoft need Apple to keep the monopolies commission at bay and Apple need Microsoft to provide MS Office on iOS and to make them look 'cool' in comparison. Apple and Microsoft have lots of patents because they have created lots and lots of new technologies over the years.
Google are an advertising company and their sole aim is to get as many people onto their systems as possible. Unfortunately due to their dominance in the advertising market they have crap loads of money which enables them to force their way into any market they want by trampling over the opposition. The only anti-competitive behaviour going on at the moment is being done by Google. Of course they want to get rid of software patents because without them they would be able to take over the world without giving anyone a dime.
What are you on about?!
Do you have anything to back that up? Anything at all?
you're quite right...
iFrames were first introduced in Internet Explorer in 1996. In 2006 Microsoft were granted the patent for the basic Ajax technology which they invented.
how is the joke meant to go?
Stand by for Nokia launching legal action - "selling stuff in shops is OUR idea".
not as funny and I've never seen a Nokia shop anyway so it doesn't work.
Lighten up... IT'S A JOKE!!!!
"Access secret files, password hunter1"
article (a) is a scam site and article (b) is an April fool. You are a muppet.
This should look good
in Google's antitrust case...
put up with what? The problem is that Microsoft are not being clear about the future of Windows development. We need to make decisions now but don't have the information needed to do so.
cunning excuse for murder?
All they need to do...
..is create a smartphone that actually lets you make telephone calls while you're still indoors.
I misread that but it still made sense, v.g.
Business & Students??
Business & Students seem to be the main 2 groups of people who would actually need specific installed software in order to do their work.
This makes sense for home use, but I guess the money is not there.
You missed the point
The point is that *you* should taste the food you are giving to your dog == *you* should use the software you are giving to your clients.
Saying 'eat your own food' is stupid because if you didn't you would be dead.
'...we expect a resolution for all users in the near future. Please note this time frame is an estimate and may change.'
change from the 'near future' to the 'far future'? 'to never'?!
A JOKE. Please try and get a sense of humour, you're giving the other WP7 users (both of them...boom boom) a bad rep.
Couldn't happen in the UK
The police actually followed up the crime report by going to a nearby pawn shop. That's beyond the call dude.
If you think that's slow, how long has the HTML5 standard been kicking about
only person ever?
erm... Roman Polanski?
Please could you list the people who have actually been harmed/killed as a result of his leaks?
can't believe they only made her pay $17 million...
Offices in Ireland are their *European* offices
"When we compete for jobs and investment we are competing not against the European Union, but against countries such as Singapore, Israel, India and China."
Utter bullshit, they already have factories/offices there, the ones in Ireland are to serve the EU.
As someone once said...
"If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place."
It is written...
and it's called Muphry's law.
is that you?
I think Google should have to setup an escrow account used to compensate all members of the U.K. whose data they intercepted.
Roughly $20 billion ought to cover it!
"Windows is known for being vulnerable to attacks by hackers and more susceptible to computer viruses than other operating system"
...but there's a crack team of Microsoft developers just waiting to put that right just as soon as Chrome OS gets released!
That's a bit like saying...
Volvos are crap because there were 2000 road deaths in the UK last year.
if you think you are a scientist you are sadly mistaken.
