Uninstall maps then reinstall it when you are past the border.
Two words: False Positive
Copying is ok when we do it
Just not when Samsung does it.
I think he meant
totally not about seeking journalists to reveal confidential sources in relation to information that has been obtained legitimately. Although if that happens in the cells we definetly won't mind.
I believe Reality et al. invented gravity at the Big Bang event circa 13.7 billion BC
Re: Immersion reading...
Narration good, Reading good, combination bad. Much like molten lead and sex.
Do these companies ever even pay out? or do they just keep appealing and counter claiming forever.
Pump and Dump ladies and gentlemen
Pump and Dump
Yeah that's a good idea, lets have a massive button that calls the police as soon as it's pressed and is right next to the 'call mummy' button.
Security, encryption and surveillance technologies
Uncle Sam is the last person I'd recruit to develop encryption for me, they don't exactly have a great track record (limiting key lengths, demanding 'spare keys', developing industrial sabotage viruses etc).
"nic, for Network Information Centre, is often considered the default left-of-the-dot domain"
nic.org is an old folks home.
nic.uk doesn't exist, neither does nic.co.uk
nic.us looks like a legit agency as does nic.com (although their site and logo are pretty fugly).
Have I misunderstood the article or what?
"immediate, ongoing irreparable harm that Apple is suffering,"
Why stop there how about:
"immediate, long term, archival, multi generational, ongoing, irreparable, fiscal critical, patent infringing harm that Apple is being brutally, painfully, permanently subjected to, causing great suffering, financial loss and IP destruction."
Or they could just write <insert QQ here>
Think of the CHILDREN!!!!
So can we finally shelf this research area and start worrying about the asteroids and colonisation.
Simple route to car security: replace all Wi-fi, NFC,bluetooth etc with a single USB port next to the stereo. Then put a massive padlock on the door and paint it chrome (the car, not the padlock).
How many more sentences do I need for a funding proposal?
RE:Sammy knows it'll get an appeal in Texas.
Well even if that is the reason, it's nice to see more producing going on rather the typical bankstering professions that don't contribute anything useful to the world.
Re: Fools and their money
50% discount = £10 paid by customer
50/50 split between groupon and merchant
Merchant gets £5
Pretty brutal, only really viable for stuff that is either way over priced in the first place or retailers willing to handout 'freebies' for advertising.
"This isn't about sharing technology, it's about establishing a strong corporate monopoly which keeps out new innovators with our combined patent portfolio. Between our patents prohibiting the use of the letter x or i and the patents on white plastic we are confident we can establish a decades long hegemony" Apple's intellectual property licensing director Boris Teksler did not tell the San Jose court.
RE: Re: Why?
Apparently you can. Meltwater volume is 2.6% more than that of the displaced water according to Noerdlinger 2005.

Re: People who like to complain about non-renewable energy
Or you could get a sense of humour?
People who like to complain about non-renewable energy
like to complain about other things too. It's like everyone one of them has their particular solution in mind and none of them are willing to consider others.
I propose we build nothing but:
nuclear power plants in the UK
solar power plants in Australia
Geothermal plants in the US
Wind power plants in Russia
Coal power in China
And tidal power in Germany (as a punitive measure for all the wars they've started).
Then we can see which population dies off last and conclude the most effective power source.
25% of income
I'm pretty much ok with it after all it goes to making the country a better place, building roads, paying teachers etc. I'd like to see less going to the military though.
What his take on it was while he was still alive? It's very easy not to sell out once your dead.
Black hats have more incentive to work together
What with all being in the same office of MI5
In the future
People will say:
"Company X couldn't have started in America due to the USPTO fiasco of the early first millennium"
Didn't Microsoft have an tech demo of a double sided tablet (book like). How exactly is this different?
If you are considering legislation, stop it. Then go look up existing laws and see if you can find one that covers it already. If you still can't then go and find 10 laws that are outdated, bureaucratic or authoritarian and get them stripped from the books. Once you have gotten rid of 10 retarded old laws you can have 1 new one.
Vote Thomas18 today, for a less bureaucratic / more monomaniacal tomorrow
X*0.29 = 50
= £53.56 * 100,000
= £32,883 per employee
Then there's advertising revenue, but that probably covers the estates costs, travel expenses, extra coffee for the machine.
Guess there's some greedy people at the top.
Re: When I'm in charge
Fortunately, in addition to getting to invent new laws, dictators can use common sense and make arbitrary judgements to deal with people who like to 'get around' existing ones.
"I have never"
Wonder if we can get a list of everything a lawyer has claimed never to have done. I sense a FOI / court records brewing.
When I'm in charge
software will only be licensed for as long as it's maintained. Don't want to maintain it any more? then you got to release the source so someone else can.
Alternative buisness strategy:
Kickstarter Patent/Copyright Trolling
For £100 you will get 0.01% of any settlements
For £1000 you will get an official Proview IPAD (registered trademark)
For £5000 you will get 1 free spurious patent
For £1,000,000 you can choose the next lawsuit
For £10,000,000 you can buy a [a class="hide"]judge[/a] tshirt
Re: Arresting is over the top but...
The police aren't the same as the mental health services. The police should only be involved if someone is actually violent. I'd say a written warning and a recommendation that he seek some counselling is more than sufficient for a first offender.
The company sells this kind of info out the back door anyway, the only crime here is that they didn't pay the company for it.
That's either an epic failure in marketting or the worlds first honest police branch.
"Sony will replace the system for a fee"
Ha ha is the fee the RRP of a PS vita?

I hear you can catch a virus if you hold it wrong.
Truly a great day for patent trolls everywhere!

[...] the Home Affairs Committee makes three recommendations, all of which are aimed at remedying perceived imbalances in the treaty:
1. US prosecutors should be required to establish "probable cause" of the alleged offence in a UK court, which is the same information threshold that UK extradition requests must satisfy in the US.
2. US prosecutors should be required to present an evidential case against defendants so that the evidence can be tested in a UK court.
3. The proposed "forum" bar should be introduced into the Extradition Act 2003, which would allow the decision about whether a matter should be prosecuted in the US or the UK to be taken by a judge in open court after listening to the defendant's representations.
References, or it didn't happen
Re: US extradition.
If we want to extradite people we have to provide evidence, the Americans don't.
The crime 'Eddie' committed happened on UK soil, targeted a UK company and was perpetrated by a UK citizen.
Did you read the whole article? it says that experienced techies weren't able to remove the battery without puncturing it. That means it cannot "be gotten apart safely".
Green is not only about assembly and disposal it's also about how easy it is to maintain. Apple products are designed to last till 1 day after the warranty and be as un-user serviceable as possible.
Hence the big black mark.
We have yet to hear back from Cupertino.
Heh who didn't see that one coming.
Or you could just buy a coffee maker with a scheduler... they cost about £10 more than the ones without.
