Re: pig-headed anti-corporate shill @TeeCee
I agree, it was supposed to be a witty, post-modern youtube-comment style putdown, not an actual mathematical proof....
Re: pig-headed anti-corporate shill
pig-headed anti-corporate shill > pig-headed corporate shill * 100
Ok Tom, if you're really 13 I guess you might think that they settled out of court because they were innocent. The reality is they settled because they thought they'd lose in court. They probably thought they'd lose in court because they had agreed to do something illegal. It might not be so, but that's the simplest reason....
It's not that freetards think settlements mean something they don't. it's you confusing "not found guilty in court" with "didn't do it". Those two things are very different.
Re: Waiting for "Kinect: PRISM"
I'm typing this really slowly. I should be able to play a video game without the console watching me. That's too much to ask for?
Re: The alternative is having to write software from scratch for a single platform
No, the alternative is decent browser integration and web apps that work across devices and platforms.
Re: There's no end to the confusion a fool causes in the world when he opens his mouth
or starts typing....
Oooh, can I play too!
It's spot the words that aren't in the article time!! hurrah!!
How about "relevant comment", "insight" and "tired, scratched old record"...
Re: Also a standard USB keyboard would also probably have worked just fine.
There's one usb slot. The install image is on a usb stick. When using a usb hub the boot drive doesn't work. So a standard usb keyboard didn't help. It's all in the article....
Downvoted for being able to count. Nasty...
Re: This is such a non-issue, I'm bored.
This is such a non-issue I can't even be bothered to post about it....
Re: so many software companies are in it for the quick buck
And Google highlighting vulnerabilities in other people's software will surely be beneficial for Google. But they're playing a long game so a quick buck isn't what they're after. Putting the fox in charge of the hen house again....
(And it's "too many" not "to many")
Re: Perhaps a little research ?
yeah, maybe start by trawling through the internet to find the specific command line needed to extract the package and installl it?
nuked, you've been posting here for nearly a year and only just noticed that apple users are referred to as fanbois?
Did they really say..
..."shot across the bowl"? Better than one across the bowel I guess...
Re: I agree about the hotspot,
Try using it with multtiple monitors, that easy to find hot spot becomes a precise pixel of cold spot that's easy to overshoot, findable but not intuitive or simple.
Re: As the single biggest war criminal of all time
No. He isn't.
Re: Their organic search is the best of the best.
But their search results have got worse in the past couple of years, especially since they stopped allowing you to specify a really important word with "+". A few years ago they were the best of the best, now they're a poor imitation of themselves.
(still better than the other search engines I've tried though, though it pains me to say it.)
Actually, having read your post I can see the argument for monitoring peoples communications...
Re: Your pr0n downloading habits are probably of zero interest to anyone other than Google
Oh well, it's probably ok to get rid of any right to privacy, because it probably won't be abused. There is no way terror legislation would be used to randomly harass people, probably.
Re: run around like a headless cat
it's chickens that supposedly run around without heads.
Re: and what are you supposed to do with the keyboard once you've unplugged it
Or take it out as a tablet and then use it like a laptop when you get back home?
Re: as soon as a robot becomes self aware
Cool, science has proved that consciousness is just a really fast processor and some smart software. When did that happen?
re: I don't get the arrogance of a lot of you.
Yeah, someone like you wouldn't....
Re: Smarter developers...
... test on all popular browsers.
MUST SAY, I THINK I'M BEGINNING TO DEVELOP EADON-ITIS HERE.
Re: 88 Clicks as of 9am this morning...
You think they did this because they thought it would get a massive number of respondents?
Re: Well done everybody.
Re: Apps schnapps.
I believe the idea behind the app was to integrate more tightly with Windows 8, allow live tile support or some such feature. Not something I'd be interested in, but not something a device agnostic web app should be doing...
Re: Uh, who'es the idiot?
The one who cant spell "who's"?
Re: no matter what massively misinformed people on the internet might suggest
You cite no references for what you say and then you imply that people who think differently to you are stupid. You look exactly like any other misinformed internet person.
re: a case of shouty arse
It's fucking endemic around these forums!
*sigh* once again, the irony....
Actually he was illustrating how one person's "do gooder" is another persons "good bloke making a positive difference". It's not that tricky to understand, but it's good that you keep trying....
Re: are you seriously suggesting we euthanise irritating people?
Fuck it, he's a dick, but he's OUR dick!!! At least he puts a name to his posts so it's easy to ignore him...
Re: I can't believe you said that!
Well you obviously have a degree in spotting sarcasm...
I can't believe you said that!
How dare you! Just because my life is an empty meaningless pit does not make me a crackpot! That is so OFFENSIVE!!!
Re: Quick Eadon!

Ner ner ne ner ner! My country's bigger than yours!!!

Re: Was out with a full sized DSLR last weekend and nobody gave a damn
Sweet! The police have obviously stopped harrasing people for taking photos then!
Re: I don't think that's because they're still justifying the $1500 outlay to their spouses
You single by any chance?
Re: headline grabbing hyperbole
That's what I come here for. Judging by your upvotes it's had the desired effect of getting the phandroids all batey....
Re: Two years too late
no, it wouldn't, it would be just another android in a sea of similar devices.
Youtube does HTML5.Apps are no longer needed.
Wow, gun jumper! HTML5 implementations on the different handset OSs (and manufacturers builds for a certain Googly OS) are way too inconsistent to be claiming apps aren't needed. If you know your market and target the most popular devices you can cover just them, but fixes for one renderer can break another, and as soon as you start shipping device specific stuff you may as well be developing device specific apps.
It is definitely the way to go though, I think we just need a few successful HTML5 sites to push the manufacturers to agree on exactly how the standards should be implemented....
you don't need Win+D. Use escape, the classic "Get that full-screen shit out of my face now" button! That's not user unfriendly!
Re: fixed that for you
Ah, one of those helpful unix bods you were just talking about!
I don't get it.
When I get into work I boot windows 8, the stupid metro thing pops up, I hit escape and I'm in the desktop. From there it's pretty much 7, all the things I use every day are docked to the bar at the bottom of the screen just like 7. From a user perspective Metro is shit, but it's not exactly getting in the way. I don't really see what all the moaning's about...
Re: They may struggle with that one
Have none of you been watching Apple vs Samsung? Why would prior art be an issue?
Re: I may be dead wrong
You are. The idea that political activism is tied to a particular operating system is genuinely pathetic. Real activism requires you to get out there and do something, no OS required.
Good use of, commas though.
