re: I've not had Android crash on me for god knows how long now
My Android phone just rebooted itself in the middle of a tune on the way to work this morning.
Ewww! Informed comment!
That's interesting. If companies can't make money out of generating electricity then the market clearly isn't working and things need to change. Nevertheless, the answer to that problem isn't "open up the infrastructure to the internet".
Re: C:\> autoshill.bat
For the hard of thinking, you don't need to use your "real" name to have an account here. Accounts allow other users to see all your post. If you want to read all Youngdog's posts you can. Posting anon means you can only judge each individual post, even if you find a sequence that appears to be from one anon.
It's really not that difficult to understand.
Re: @ turtle
You can read as much as you like into my simple answer to the simple question. I didn't ask him to be more balanced, I merely suggested that it might be a reason for him to mention the positive feedback theories.
Check my other posts (just click on my name) you'll see your name calling is unfounded and just plain fucking rude.
Re: Why the fuck would he bother?
In order to appear less unbalanced?
I like it!
And it's provoking a reaction, so it MUST be art!
What claims? That the research is 50/50 funded by the government and the industry? That came from here: http://www.o2.com/cr/resource/independent_research.asp
Whether that information makes you cynical about the results of the research is your call. It certainly makes me less confident of it, but maybe I have a bad attitude.....
Don't confuse "pilton pop festival" as it's known around here with the town of Glastonbury. You've got a whole load of psychic bad vibes heading your way now!!
I went to the MTHR website to take a look at their findings. They seem very clear on who's involved in the research, but less clear on who's paying for it. Googling for "who finances the MTHR" doesn't turn up much, but does have a link to a page on the o2 website that explains this research is paid for 50/50 by the government and the mobile telecoms industry.
Could you find two more trustworthy sponsors?
Re: Never mind that!
Never mind that!
Can I wipe it and put a Proper Linux on there?
I get it!
Android is great because it's open source. You can take the bits you like and leave the bits you don't. Except, when someone actually takes it and does something the googletards don't like they bitch and moan like there's no tomorrow....
Never mind that!
Can i wipe it and install a Proper Lin.... oh.
Re: "Get back here and explain your actions to us"
Agreed. Sounds a bit like whataboutery though....
What are you using to rip? I rip every CD I buy with EAC (and lame for the mp3 encoding), I definitely have some Warner ones (though probably from Taiwan if that makes a difference) and I ripped them with no issues.

Re: Paranoid schizophrenia
Or maybe you write off things as paranoia when there is more rational explanation?
But if it was one tourist..
...with thousands of cameras all over the town you were on holiday in, able to piece together your every movement for the entire holiday, it would be fucking creepy. Individual glassholes may not be an issue, but Google getting the feeds from millions of these things is well beyond creepy and into sinister.
It's bad enough that they know where most Android phones (and their users) are most of the time, but that's something you opt in to when you take their services. I haven't opted into that and I don't want them spying on me.
Re: Who wants to be part of a society where individuality is shunned?
You're setting up a new society?
TMobile aren't the end device user.
What are you talking about?
Re: a tacit admission that they were wrong
>> the two agencies decided to settle the case with no admission of guilt <<
They made sure they didn't admit anything.
Re: This is a problem how and why does it need to be "solved"?
It's a problem because Google are also competing with other services and push their services over competitors in their search results.
It's kind of like when Mshipped IE with windows. Surely someone could have just made a better browser and it'd be successful? (Well, I guess it would be if you stuck it as a "improve your internet" link on the top of 90% of all search results....)
So, was the EU was wrong to hassle MS about IE? Or is it just Google that are sacrosanct?
Catch em all
Surely you need to trade with Pokemon Blue to get all 151?
Pointy birds, oh pointy pointy.
Anoint my head. Anointy-nointy.
Re: Cannot for the life of me understand why the author was miffed at the lack of SD card slot.
Because he's got something on an SD card that he wants to copy to the mac?
Re: Even now there are really no games to play for the wii.
It's wierd, the wii is villified for all the shovelware, yet peole still say there's no games available for it. There are loads of games to play for the wii. Ones I've enjoyed include: Animal crossing, Endless Ocean 1 & 2, House of the Dead: Overkill, Kirby's Epic Yarn, No More Heroes 1 & 2, The Last Story, Another code, de Blob, Deadly Creatures, Disaster: Day of Crisis, Excite Truck, Ghost Squad, Let's Tap, Little King's Story, Mushroom Men, Okami, Opoona, Pandora's Tower, Pikmnin, Ravin' Rabbids, Sakura Wars, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Sin & Punishment, Trauma Centre, Wario Ware and Xenoblade Chronicles. Download games I've liked include the Art Style games, the bit trip games, bonsai barber and Lost Winds.
Lots of the boxed games can be picked up for a pittance these days...
Re: Internet banking in don't do it over a public wifi connection shocker!
And how many internet banking customers are completely unaware of where their magic internets is coming from? You can't make a consumer product like an online banking app and then expect users to know when it's dodgy to use it. Well you can, but it'll end in tears.....
Re: if your bank does something really stupid.
Yeah, like that'd happen!

Re: The smouldering wreckage that is Windows 8...
Considered opinion seems to be that 8.1 makes it a lot better. I'm still running 8 mind, there's always some bloody essential app i use for work that claims to be incompatible when I run the upgrade checker exe,
Not really sure why you're finding it so difficult though, don't you just click on the desktop tile oince you've booted and stay there? I had to rewire some file types to not open in stupid metro apps when I first got 8 but now that's done I seldom see the start screen and I spend all day running it....
Re: A bit like Microsoft and WindowsXP then, Doc?
If you think 14 years and 4 years are the same thing, then yeah!
Re: Keep that up for a while, and what happens to Android?
The 98% of the market that still use Google's services mean it's pretty much unnafected?
And the "get me coat" icon is for shit jokes.
Oh, I see what you did there.....
Re: my trade is mostly quick-and-dirty...
then you should get on with JS!
An eye for an eye always has been always will be..
.. a childish response that results in conflicts escalating and dragging on for years. You don't stop bullying by being a bigger bully.
Never mind that, can I wipe it and install a proper Linux on it?
Never mind that!
Can I wipe it and install a proper Linux on it?
Re: Hasn't anybody learnt?
I'm sure Google will stop with this silly ChromeOS nonsense now you've cleared that up.
Thanks. No really, well done.
Shame on you!
Re: Never mind that
Can I put Windows 8 on it? What about XP?
Not another Googlehatefest! How will they cope?
Re: Actually, they say "do NO evil"
Actually the google motto is "don't be evil".
Re: That's interesting....
If you've got sources...
(or tickets for Googlehatefest, it sounds awesome!)
Re: a lot of bile for a minor permitting issue.
I think the bile is for the "We don't have to follow the rules like everyone else" attitude, not this specific infraction.
Re: Resilience is a great thing when leveraged properly.
Resilience is a great thing when used properly. FTFY.
Re: No, they were lying.
Thanks for clearing that up. No really, well done.
Re: "...the non-profit military contractor..."
Maybe they just like killing people?
It's not ironic. Threatening someone with violence is not the same as insulting them.
Re: I'd click the "block" button.
And after they'd signed up another 10 times would you still be so calm and rational as the threats to anally rape you turned up? And another 20? Would you go on indefinitly receiving abuse, just hitting "block" every time?
Re: and can only be about damaging investment into the UK.
You sound paranoid and delusional, you really think this is about frightening off investors? You genuinely believe that Amazon and Google will pass up on millions of pounds of profits because Margaret Hodge was mean to them? Bizarre.....
Re: Unless Hank is your nice local US government spook
I thought it was obvious that I chose the name Hank to indicate an american. What exactly is your point?
