If the only argument for your candidate is that they aren't the other candidate you don't have a good candidate.
Is he ever going to release his tax returns?
Not at all. Religion is a handy way to try and spread division, but there are plenty of non-religious nut-jobs around.
Foreign policy, by which I mean invading foreign nations, is surely as much to blame. Greed is behind a lot of our bad policy desicions.
How would you feel if another country's military arrived and destroyed our government? What steps would seem reasonable in retaliation?
ChromeOS is garbage!!
Web apps are cross platform by definition....
Only the Stallone one is a painful memory. The recent one is much more Dreddlike, he doesn't snog Anderson for a start!
Google claimed Android was only a mobile OS and that was one of the reasons they won the previous case. It's in the article:
Yesterday's courtroom arguments hinged around a peculiar legal argument Google had made in the retrial. Google had argued that the Java infringements only concerned smartphones – because Android was a smartphone system. This was an odd argument to make, since the code was copied from Java SE – basically, desktop Java – not the mobile edition, Java ME.
Oracle argues that when Google announced its Android app runtime for Chromebooks at this year's I/O developer conference, Google had undermined its own argument. In other words, Google had indicated that Android and its rip off of Oracle's copyright went beyond phones and tablets.
Of course! Google did it for our own good! How kind of them.
No it doesn't. Oracle don't want Google to change Android, they want them to pay for copying Java interfaces.
I quite like it. I find it's use of words makes it more easily readable. The editor/debugger makes working with it a lot easier than working with a batch file.
If you want to work here, don't get caught.
Pity it's noscript is so cakey.
Now this is targetted advertising I can live with. The site owner vetting the ads and ensuring they are just static images and hosting them locally. Nice!
It's in Bootnotes.
Whereas a crap connection isn't an issue for peer to peer skype?
As in install W10 on you Windows Phone (7, 8, 8.1) device. Not as in "replace the device".
A chorlton of work? A chip ton of work?
It's ok to swear on here you know! Might help you vent a little (more)....
"When Microsoft changed things up with the new ribbon interface in Office 2007, customers got a nasty shock and people clung to the ageing versions of their favourite suite."
That's some top quality advertising for Office 2003.
No woz! Sounds like a good purchase though I'm not sure what macs're like for Windows use (had to use a mac keyboard recently and it drove me to disruption!!) My boss at my old place used to swear by Macs in terms of them being robust machines so hopefully you'll get good use out of it!
Good old John Lewis though! Full refund over a year after purchase is sweet!
Dunno about making you an idiot, that depends why you bought it and what it cost you, but it sounds like you have difficulty spotting a joke.
Enjoy your laptop!
When I buy stuff online I expect https. When I read the news I don't care if it's http.
Is the Reg shop http?
Works for Apple.......
She indeed better looking, that what look for in first lady! Likewise president should funny hair and constantly contradict themselves. No fun if policy consistent from day to day....
Even better, one that causes you to wake in the middle of the night in a cold sweat! Awesome! I love the fear of global war!!!!
Not if the posters on here are anything to go by.
You're saying that Chrome did something wrong?
Wow. Downvotes incoming.....
...."for the life of the device" compared to what they did before, which was providing updates for the supported life of the OS?
The "innovation" is the bit where they don't market a new versions of the OS, just tweak 10. Previously they'd release a new version of Windows every couple of years. It's pretty straightforward.
Compared to Android offering updates "for the life of the device" is innovative.
Will it? What makes you believe that?
This will never be an alternative to a password, it's an alternative to a user name. That's the fundamental problem with this approach.
From the AC posting a Google sales pitch? What part of your post, specifically, made you think you'd better hide your name?
Probably, but there's no harm in listening to what people have to say before you discount their opinions. Always easier to argue from a position of knowledge.
And of course saying "conspiracy theory" is a great way to cover up a conspiracy....
So you're complaining about them developing new technology?
They try stuff, if it catches on or is useful they keep it (COM, .Net are still both going strong in Windows) if not popular or useful it gets phased out (eg. Silverlight).
If you're waiting for technology to stabilise for a bit before you learn it you're in for a long wait....
Different to what? Is that a random list of MS tech or is it supposed to prove something?
Yeah, funny how easy that is when you argue both sides of every point: I don't believe in violence but I'll pay your court bills if your beat up that protestor, I think it was right to go into Iraq but obviously going into Iraq was a massive mistake, women are pigs but some of my closest family members are women and they don't sound quite as insane as me.....
That counts as broadcast TV, you need a license for that. Should've stuck to the DVDs and iPlayer (not live streaming) and you'd be legally fine.
Ignorance of the law and all that.....
Well install a fucking Linux or fucking FreeBSD then.
Hey, if it's good enough for Google....
You might want to take a look at your keyboard, it seems to randomly capitalize stuff.
Why? Lots of people work more than one job, doesn't make them self employed.
We need eugenics, quick!!!
Yeah, we really need to breed more killjoys and stick-in-the-muds!
Someone needs to tell Google, because currently there's one drunken death in 2014 and another couple of drunken ones in 2009. Nothing about people getting stuck in the mud and drowning though, just stuck in the mud and rescued...
Still, it's a good story!
First generation pokemon games were released in Japan in 1996. That's 20 years ago. I wouldn't hold your breath.....
<pedant>Mice don't like eating cheese.</pedant>
(To be fair, it's cow calf puke, only a human would look at that and go "smack it on a cracker!")
Too angry about M$ douchebaggery to get to the quote from Google at the bottom of the article?
"the panel decided not to reward this report financially .... It qualified for the credit though – you'll appear in a Google Hall of Fame"
That's your answer to everything. It's a shit answer.
That's not stupidity, that's bowing to public opinion. They'd be stupid not to pick the most popular candidate, however mental he may be.
In Visual Studio I just select the lines I want commented and click the comment button. That gives me a consistent comment style (appropriate to the language being edited) with zero effort.
Isn't there a similar feature for Linux devs?
But this wasn't a rant about the content of the comments, it was about the structure of the comments tags. If the comment is useful but the format is slightly different to the other comments what difference does it make?
Yeah, they spin stuff in a lefty way, but personally I find that quite refreshing, and there's no reason to treat the 36% figure as being any more accurate than the 70% quoted in the Canary, which was the original point I was making.
I normally read the Guardian and Daily Mail websites for general news (and listen to Radio 4, obv.), the Canary is much more tabloid (and left wing) than the Guardian, but still not as mental as the Mail.
I take the lot with the same pinch of salt.
