Did the clueless family of the deceased contact Virgin Media to cancel the account before ranting on Facebook?
Re: Negative marketing wont work
"IIRC the Atoms are made with more advanced process (3D FET) than the ARMs."
You do not remember correctly, the Atoms on Intel's 22LP process haven't yet launched. Intel SOCs currently lag the state of the art at 32nm.
elreg lost plot as per usual.
Let's put surveillance cameras and drones everywhere just to stick it to this arsehole. That will show these hypocritical google evildoers who's boss.
A better example would be Microsoft's Enterprise, Operating System, Office, and CE business units.
If no tax dollars have or will be spent on NBN, and we're ripping up the coax and copper to prevent competition, how is this boondoggle being funded? Reduced service quality and monopoly rents?
Oh that's it isn't it, NBN is the Telstra model. Reduced quality and monopoly rents.
Re: He is almost as stupid as Geoge W
Grenada was a "proxy action" against Reagan's poor polling.
Ronnie saw Maggie strutting around after shelling the Falklands and decided he needed to demonstrate his military might on a barely inhabited island in the middle of nowhere as well.
"I am not evading tax in any way, shape or form. Now of course I am minimizing my tax and if anybody in this country doesn't minimize their tax they want their heads read because as a government I can tell you you're not spending it that well that we should be donating extra. "
Re: NBNCo plan to grow ARPU steeply
"Worse than prices rises is the fact that NBNCo are building a fibre network, while at the same time predicting that 50% will connect at 12/1Mbps."
What's worse is that 90% of customers could be immediately (within 2 years) serviced by 100Mbit/100Mbit VDSL2, with fiber hooked up on an at request/need basis, ala Google Fiber.
Instead we have a decade of infrastructure stagnation for the majority of customers who sit on obsolete and abandoned ADSL/Cable and are not connected to NBN fiber. Meanwhile Labor delays the build out as it tries to massage the expenditure numbers in the budget.
"Google sold their stuff in every country except France, in France they gave it away in order to eliminate the French company"
That is not a factually correct statement.
I'm going to pronounce it as "squiggle".
Re: Perhaps if Microsoft shared a little love around
The reason is that Google pays a per user license. They're not paying Microsoft to make email work on non-standards compliant Microsoft phones.
If Microsoft wanted the could offer Activesync royalty free to Win8 phones. Boom, problem solved. But what they really want a scapegoat in the antitrust trial they just lost.
We demand you pay us extortionate fees to make your free mail service work on our shitty non-standards compliant clusterfuck because Antitrust.
One of the yellowest articles i've seen on this site. I suppose you don't want to make a substantive allegation because of the defamation laws?
The purpose of this "flexible learning environment" plan is to reduce staff (who are contractors, almost no tenure at UWS and UTS) contact hours. You're essentially being enrolled at an "on premises online diploma mill."
Re: ITU to stay in the first couple of ISO layers
Too bad they planted it on the wrong summit. X.400 and X.500 are never, ever, going to be the dominant standard except in countries where use of SMTP and LDAP carries the death penalty.
H.323 merely demonstrates the simplicity, superiority and ease of use of SIP and IETF engineering standards in general.
No parenting needed.
The solution to this problem is the same as the web.
Are you over 13?
*"Yes, Buy Apps"
I'd just like to point out that 20Mbit (2.55MBps) is where Netflix throttles it's data connections to Google, not what the link is capable of. There's no point buffering half a movie that might not be watched on a well commissioned gigabit link.
Re: Google worries me
That's just IP Geolocation. The databases are public knowledge, every time you connect to a web service you're telling the service provider, roughly, where in the world you are.
Re: No, Miss Koh, you are not.
"Both will end up as wasting the time of the general public."
The public are wasting the courts time by granting millions of dubious patents. "The People" are the villains in this case.
Re: Ass hole
"What a load of crap. So I suppose all those television, radio, computer, cell phone, and you name it products that started life here in the good ole USA were NEVER made here?"
Most were made in Mexico, Japan or south east asia. No one has historically manufactured the volumes Apple needs.
Re: Bitter and dangerous people.
"The problem with most of the major companies today, MS, Google, Apple is that they all want a "large" slice of all the pies but when they dont manage they become bitter."
That is a media narrative. It's a problem with hack journalists and the impressionable idiots who read them.
Re: Taxing rich companies that can afford it?
"Personally I'd deny them access to the vital infrastructure which they aren't contributing to. Roads, rail, electricity grid, gas supplies and so on."
They pay the national grid connection charge at their datacenters. Data also does not use road, rail, gas supplies or "so ons".
Re: Consumer vs enterprise?
Google Drive assumes a certain amount of duplication and over subscription.
Re: Broadcast only while in the air
Rolls called one of Qantas's A380s over Jakarta when the compressor on their inboard engine blew up and took most of the wing. From the interview with the pilot, they asked if the engine had blown up and if the wing was damaged.
How about build an engine that doesn't fucking explode next time Rolls.
Re: Very simple
Violation of recent free trade agreements. Australian produce would be immediately blocked from EU, US, and Japanese markets.As a commodity exporter Australia has everything to lose in this game.
Re: So why not something along the lines of
"1. If you are an business of at least a certain size, or operating under the brand of a business of a certain size you are required to have a registered UK branch and offices."
Withdraw from the EU or stop whining.
Re: Does the FCC even have a role to play any more?
The supreme court has already ruled that radio waves aren't speech, so they can claim all they want.
Zune was an extremely flawed media player in it's first iteration. The hardware (besides it's color palette) was excellent, well ahead of ipod. It had an extremely expensive 802.11g/bluetooth chip for music sharing, but only official zune library songs to other zunes. You couldn't buy music over wifi or sync your album between pc and zune. That was a lost opportunity.
What really killed zune however was playsforsure. If you made a Microsoft DRM investment earlier, say on a Sansa media player, it forsurecouldntplay on your Zune. Fool me once. Shame on you.
Re: Power consumption?
Atom SoCs are using the same amount of power as ARM. That's 1x the consumption of ARM.

"You have to do the same thing for any alcohol at the same time.... And the public gets to view the records of all pollie's drinking habits.....

"That said, CEO Dell piped up and said that the company has one customer that has bought a total of one exabyte of storage capacity from Dell."

The businesses will now know better to not rely on those evil western devils email services.
" It all reminds me of the new Samsung TVs with the stupid voice and gesture recognition control. WTF is the point when you can still switch channels or change the volume quicker by pressing a button"
Gestures aren't the point at all. How else are you going to get punters to pay for putting the NSA's surveillance cameras into a television?
I see the Asus 10" Atom tablet as ideal. A laptop with a full version of Matlab and TeXworks (and not a locked app store full of useless skeuomorphised desk calculators, burn in hell Apple) for class, and a 500g slate I can watch movies on and read webpages with on the train.
At $599 incl keyboard dock the price is right.
""Coffee, milk two please."
You've correctly asked for a small (they call it a short and for the purposes of upselling don't put it on display) filtered coffee, with milk and two sugars. Starbucks will always, always understand this and will be happy to serve it and pocket the $1.90 gross margin.
Re: Fair, Non-discriminatory. Don't get the issue
Motorola doesn't have to re-offer Apple FRAND terms once they've refused them. They can deny Apple access to 3G patents Apple has claimed they don't need and won't buy, and is now saying they've willfully infringed, or they can charge the spoiled child any non-FRAND amount they choose.
