They already grammar different
They proberly spel diferent to.
Isn't progress wonderful!
My Youtube app...
...is called a web browser.
Re: Yep, I agree
Another delighted Nexus 4 user here. Plain vanilla Android is a pleasure to use - whatever moves OEMs to cover it with their crapware is beyond me.
Media pleads with Microsoft
"Stop making shite."
It's a verb.
No sympathy. Apple's approach to privacy is well-known; you use their shit, you deserve all you get.
How about "suppository"?
No - it's you Brits and we Australians who can't spell it. It's aluminum. Some of your scientists decided to change it just so it'd fit in with other "ium"s.
Please tell me that the fscktards who bought them got 20 years.
Spelling check required.
An honest business operation gets banned while millions of shady and dodgy scams prosper.
How long before they're on sale on ebay for $400 each?
Is it open source?
If not, I wouldn't trust it as far as I could throw it.
To be fair, Google's done a Microsoft. Chrome is the default browser on Android, so the vast majority of Android users (which means a significant majority of phone users) are using Chrome. So these stats don't reflect user choice; as far as IE and Chrome are concerned they largely only represent the default.
If I was a) stupid enough to buy an iThing and b) stupid enough to give it to a child who accessed this dross, I'd say "Get the money from my two year old. If he doesn't pay, take him to court."
I think those were the right idea, although these would be more accurate:
Re: Selling stuff is hard
If it hadn't been for the stroke of genius of locking in their crapware on all new computer sales they'd have vanished up their own collective fundament years ago. Now they're faced with a situation in which people actually have to make a *specific choice* to buy their shite, and guess what...
Good to see them finally learning something from Linux.
Right thing, wrong reason.
That is all.
Long awaited Internet Explorer?
We have a new oxymoron!
Re: @Nick Ryan: You are surely not suggesting that there are companies out there........
"Nobody could be that stupid could they?"
They're running Windows. So yes, yes, they could.
Only In America - numbers 1,531, 1,532, 1,533 and 1,534:
Texas school requires students to wear RFID tracking tags; said school expels student for refusing; student's objections include that the tag is "a mark of the Beast"; court upholds school's right to force students to wear them and expel said student.
Well, if you own the government...
The missing tentacles were undoubtedly harvested for "scientific research".
The same thing happens with chord charts. Many, perhaps the majority of, chord charts on the Internet are wrong - sometimes egregiously so. But most of them are identical, so clearly they're copies of the original wrong chart.
Bugs in Cinnamon?
I upgraded from Mint 11 to 14 with Cinnamon a few days ago. So far, so good. I haven't spotted a bug yet.
Using "pled" should be considered as big a crime as credit card skimming.
Re: Compute time was billed at around £750-800 per hour
"Surely time is a noun. Wouldn't that make compute an adjective? More specifically, since it is based on a verb, a participle adjective?"
It's a noun used as an adjective.
Compute time was billed at around £750-800 per hour
"Compute" is a verb. The word you're looking for is "computer", which is a noun.
Lie down with dogs...
...get up with fleas.
Re: All very bizarre
"Compute" is a verb.
"In my view the Rubicon has been already crossed and the press are already subject to a statutory framework and a statutory regulator."
Not working very well, is it.
Re: as a Mac user i am an unfortunate user of itunes 10
iTunes is an abomination.
A couple of times when I've been tempted to create an account, it starts asking all kinds of idiotic personal questions which I flatly refuse to answer. I don't have to go through that shite to buy anything else online.
