"After sending that information, I thought I had been hacked"
erm no, you were not hacked. You sent them your details, that's the complete opposite of being hacked.
Re: All very true, but..
Doesn't really work though does it, if the right brothers had been able to buy an already functioning plane them maybe your argument would hold up...
I've never understood how it's good for the consumer to split the packages up like OFCOM insisted they do.
If Sky have all the games I pay Sky to watch them, if (like now) Sky & ESPN have the games I have to pay Sky & ESPN to watch what I could have watched with Sky if they still had them all. The BT deal is the same thing again. This isn't competition.
Competition would be multiple broadcasters having the rights to the same games so I could choose who I wanted to buy from, thereby makign it cheaper for the consumer via competition. All that has happened here is that Sky still charge the same for less games and someone else charges again for the rest.
Re: @ AC hypocrites
strange... My Motorola V3X had a seperate GPU.....2006, did the Iphone still trump that?
Re: I would like
The S3 mini ticks most of those boxes.
My battery lasts 2 days easily. Granted I don't make too many calls but plenty of emails and web use.
Nice size for my hands and pocket also.
the fanbois jumped on this quick.
I suspect once Apple "innovate" these same features they will suddenly be great and needed, just like the "we don't need a bigger screen" arguments....
Re: An apple a day....
they probably have a patent for "looking at a screen and it doing things"
that will pretty much cover it....
Re: move along please, nothing to see here
bet there were a million new patents last year even though (nearly) everything has been invented...
Re: I do it myself
erm... he's 23. Dopubt he's got any homework to do.
How about just kick the lazy bastard out of the house to make the point?
Have they not heard of Apple?
if there is one firm willing to go to the expense of a full blown trial it Apple!
Re: angry much?
facebook doesn't do any of these things. "People" do these things, liek the old saying, guns don't kill people, people kill people.
Sure facebook may make it easier, but it doesn't do it.
You telling someone that x is a peado is no different to you typing on facebook or twitter that x is a peado, it's still on you, not the medium you choose to communicate it.
I think my 5 year old could undestand that, can you?
Re: angry much?
" Still think I am odd"
but what if the jugde said that they couldn't show the prior art to the jury, then you might get some stupid judgement, giving stupid damages. Could even be in the region of a billion dollars!
I know, I know, that would never happen....
Aston Martin are already doing it
it's not a mini, it's a toyota iq. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_iQ#Aston_Martin_Cygnet and they only sell them to people who already have an aston. Something to do with emissions legislation or something.
Re: "Knowing the average rugby player"
Nothing wrong with water, just that most rugby players I know would rather be drinking beer with their dinner.
"Knowing the average rugby player"
I'm guessing you actually don't know any rugby players. The "average" rugby player is a reasonable man, they may make a mess occasionally but will clear it up before they leave, and pay for any breakages.
I'm not defending these guys (they sound like twats), but in many years of playing rugby I've come across very few twats amongst my team mates and opposition.
These guys clearly were not "average" rugby players (I believe it said "ex" rugby player anyway) as they were drinking water FFS!
why would him being on the board of Apple have any bearing on Google bringing out a phone OS?
Were they supposed to cancel plans for it because Apple made a phone? Do you really think that he saw they were making a phone and then said "why don't we do that too"?
If so you really need to stock up on your tin foil
they do, once a year. And they queue for it too!
Re: Standards and Prior Art
Apple have just patented "method for steering a vehicle", it describes a means for a vehicle direction to be altered based on user input.
It may or may not have rounded corners...
Re: Absolutely Wrong
except of course it wasn't Apple who threw away the keyboard, it's the trend the market was taking, hence why LG got there first.
They may have had a resistive touchscreen, and it might not have been as polished but it was before the iPhone.
The real problem is Apple fanatics rewrite history so that Apple invented everything...
would not get aroused!
fail, because my typing skills did.
If I write a novel, which I release online (or offline) which is about a detective trying to hunt down a rapist/killer, as part of the novel is describes what the perp has done to his victims. Most people would get aroused by it (which I believe is required?) but some might.
Does this then mean I have produced obscene material?
This is utterly ridiculous. Another "well meaning" law to be abused.
Isn't it time we reboot the matrix?
Re: Part of a larger problem.
except of course that you can't just refuse. To avoid jury duty when selected you have to have a pretty good excuse.
Is your excuse "I don't like oiks"?
looks like Jasper Beardly to me...
Re: Hand goes up
this is the thing that gets me, how do yo know it'll be better for you?
How can you say you'll probably get one based on the fact it's better than the others (even when qualified for you) when you can't possibly know that it's better. This just shows that you have preconceived ideas of what it'll be.
With no confirmed specs it's impossible to know if it'll be great or shit, but 80 million people are apparently ready to part with a large wad of cash to own it...
Re: Yes you can replace the battery
no "you" can't replace the battery. Apple techs can for a lump sum.
It's not the same thing.
Re: Everyone makes mistakes...
and the talented ones move on very quickly. I've always thought that if an IT tech has been working at a school for a reasonable amount of time they can't be that good....
Doesn't cover everyone of course, but as a rule of thumb....
"I have worked hard on possible solutions to get the players repaid. Returning today is part of that process"
Will paying back the millions he stole be part of the "process" as well?
Apple filed the patent for it yet?
Re: Aussie tax
there is the cost of getting it to the destination as well though, it may be cheaper to get it to the states (larger volumes?) than to other countries.
Re: Damn cookies
are you perhaps clearing them? I click yes once and it hasn't bothered me since...
Re: a new low
except then you'd be extridited and put on trial for providing them with something they could use for something....
Re: And on, and on, and on.
I doubt Apple produced the first "clamshell" design laptop/notebook. Idf they did they'd be sueing every other maker of laptops for the "look and feel"
A quick google shows laptops with the screen over the keyboard being produced at least a couple of years before the first mac portable.
Just another case of history being re-written to suit Apple. They invented breathing don't you know....
So the developer get 70%, google take the remaining 30%. 20% goes to the carrier 5% to google, what about the other 5%?
iOS users may download google maps, but what if Apple kick it off the app store for duplicating what they do?
Re: How about because
because of course millions of school children needing the apps wouldn't create a market for them....
Re: Only time will tell
how much money has youtube actually made though? last I saw it was costing google millions a year.
Re: Football isnt needed in a pub.
maybe, just maybe...
Me watching football while you stand next to me cannot be a direct cause of you getting a fatal disease
You smoking next to me can be a direct cause of me getting a fatal disease.
cue the argument, don't go to that pub then....
What about bar staff that need the job but don't want to die of lung cancer?
Seriously a lot of smokers really are selfish bastards.
How about this argument, I like punching people, it's my choice to do it, if you don't like getting punched don't stand near me?
Re: How many customer relationship managers does it take?
I agree, it really pisses me off when I get called a customer for something I have no choice in.
Besides, I don't buy anything from them, they just take my money so I don't have to go to prison (for not paying them).
It's basically a protection racket.
Re: May come as shock
as opposed to running anything you like on it and not having to jail break it first?
missing the point I think
adblocking will just stop you seeing your friends in an advert, it won't stop you being featured in ad that your friends see....
calm down dear
before you pop something!
a fan of his, but how can he face charges that he hasn't been charged with?
doesn't actually do much to stopping distances really, it helps you keep control of the car by attempting to prevent the wheels locking up. If at all possible you should try and steer around the obstruction, rarely possible I know.
You do tend to see people lock up quite a lot though, they stamp on the brakes and hope for the best because they panic.
Much like the lady in the brand new golf that slammed in to the back of me yesterday.....
Stop, because she didn't..
the "rich" already pay a larger proportion of their income (ok, maybe not the mega-rich as their accountants get round it) and it's still not fair.
The problem seems to be that anyone earning over £40k a year gets labelled as rich by anyone earning under £40k.
The thing I don't understand is why it is seen as fair that anyone should pay a larger proportion of their income than anyone else, just because Wayne Rooney earns more than me does that make it fair he pays a larger proportion of his income than I do? if we pay the same proportion then he still pays more than me. To my mind the best way to help the economy is to let people spend their money not take it and spend it for them. Tax the things we buy and raise needed cash that way. It seems to work elsewhere, just none of our politicians have the balls to implement it.
I grew up in a poor family, it didn’t make me think that others should contribute more than me, it made me want to work harder to get the lifestyle I wanted.
I might even get there one day….
