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!
We need your input on this thread: http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2013/05/08/cdorked_latest_details/
Funny, you're normally so quick to post on any story that's linux related...
Ner ner ne ner ner! My country's bigger than yours!!!
For fucks sake, they said this place was getting juvenile....
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.
Re: Can't see the downvote
votes. Mentioning downvotes is like a red rag to a bull round here.....
re: People with responsibilities
Responsibility? I think the word you're looking for is greed.
Re: I am actually humbled at just how accurate my predictions were
Humbled? Really? You sure you know what that word means?
Re: don't let me stop you, feel free.
You're the one claiming that it's fine on a modern browser. Do you now concede that you have no idea whether the site works in Chrome?
@JDX Yeah, loads of benefits claimants know about Linux.
Why shouldn't people on benefits know about Linux? Are you being a pompous dick?
Re: I realise that's not the disaster we'd been banking on.
Disaster, Banking. On a story about benefits! Ha ha, like it, very droll.
Of course, a form appearing is all it needs to do....
Bloody lefty propaganda, eh? Even the logos red! It's like the fucking bbc round here!!!!!!!
>> the correct approach is to report it without the lurid "we're all gonna die" headline <<
No. Stupid headlines are part of this site. If you don't like them, don't read them. I think they're one of the best things about the Register, I particularly enjoy the way they get various fanboys in a lather...
Re: isn't what I call music. Not even remotely.
So what. You don't call it music but millions of people do. And Vlad's attempt to somehow separate "tribal drums" from other forms of music just shows the ludicrous snobbery going on here.
What both of you seem to be saying is that you think about music, and when you think about hip hop it doesn't make sense to you (plus you only seem to have heard ganster rap, a popular genre but by no means all that hip hop has to offer). Try feeling your music instead of thinking about it. Maybe these other forms will start to make more sense to you then.
Re: "No. Because I'm not an idiot."
You are a bit up yourself though.
