"For The Win," an American sporting term, I believe.
No brown ones?
Our testing was much more extensive, and covered Space Quest, Leisuresuit Larry and EA Golf. We had to be certain those machines were /absolutely/ compatible....
Re:Buy a laptop
Why buy a laptop if you've already got an iPad?
I wonder how much Windows Phone's success will be linked to Nokia's? If Nokia fails in the US (or elsewhere), is there enough support from other manufacturers to make WP7 viable? Will Microsoft just buy Nokia to prop WP up?
>>> "Remember, every time you use Google, a puppy dies."
What a knob.
"Every time you use Bing, you don't find what you're looking for."
So, this whole "cloud computing" thing can be felled by a bolt of lightning? Is there no redundancy built into this rubbish at all? Wow.
Let's see an end to this cloud nonsense, ffs.
Yeah, because Windows has the whole "security" thing down pat.
Ahhhh, poor Google.
So why was Google also bidding for those patents, then, and would this guy be bleating and whining if they had won them?
Hey, it looks like you're drowning. Would you like help with that?
- Yes, I'd like to call for help
- No, I'll drown

If you choose Yes, you'll be prompted to upgrade your life jacket and fall in again.
The guy has a Zune, but all his music was on PlaysForSure....
Same reason people would buy a Nokia Meego phone - they wouldn't.
How much money?
Apparently it doesn't /need/ to generate any money - the people behind it just grab a chunk of that "investment" for themselves:
>>> Half of that money is understood to have been dished out to staff and shareholders at the privately-held company.
So they'll all be quids-in even if Twitter tanks.
The ball is made of wood, apparently.
I can haz fonecall?
Aren't Microsoft the ones trolling companies with a patent on the Progress Bar?
Karma's a bitch sometimes.
>>> Messages with the same subject line are grouped together iPad-style too. Apple calls them "conversations", although since they don’t include your replies, these conversations are a bit one-sided.
I believe there's a hint on OSXHints describing how to add your replies..
>>> If I want to run Adobe InDesign CS5.5, I do not want to call up LaunchPad, flit back and forth between screens until I find a group called ‘Adobe Creative Suite’, click it to open it up and then hunt through the 20 or so programs in there to find InDesign, especially when I also have to distinguish between InDesign CS5, CS4 and CS3 (not to mention CS6 in beta) on the same computer.
Well don't bloody use it then. Did you have Steve Jobs holding a gun to your head forcing you to use it? And if you can't be bothered to rearrange your icons into usable groups then you only have yourself to blame.
I'm sure my cat is monitoring my communications. I just can't prove it.
Wait - there are Windows tablets? I genuinely had no idea.
What other types of Winphones are there?
See the years along the bottom of the carbon graph? They're aiming to cut the same amount over two years that they just cut in one year.
It's all just waffle.
Sounds straightforward enough then...
Yes, Microsoft killed the netbook
Steve Ballmer was really quite public about his intention to make netbooks much more expensive than they were at the time by increasing the ransom - sorry, price - he charged OEMs for his shitty software.
So setting aside the fact that many people didn't know what they were getting when they ordered a Linux netbook - which is a different problem entirely - yes, Microsoft killed the netbook. The price of this Chromejunk thing isn't relevant to that fact.
That bloody comb-over should carry a few extra years imprisonment, too.
>>> But my money is on Harper Finkle a character in the Disney Channel sitcom Wizards of Waverly Place.
You know...... I can picture David Beckham watching Disney quite a lot.
Harper Seven - isn't that Latin for "My parents are both as thick as posts?"
Being Scottish is nothing to do with race.
Please learn the meaning of the word "racism" before post[ur]ing again. Thank you.
Heard him on the radio. He was as slippery as a slimy, eely, slippery thing.
>>> ...and if Einstein was right with his General Relativity Theory
Let's face it, he probably was...
>>> Though, again, Wi-Fi would be sufficient.
Well... not in an area without Wifi coverage - you know, like most of the world.
Off to good start, then, this Google+ thing.
>>> Indeed, Xboxes have long been known to leak users' IP addresses...
Who makes those things again?
Oh yeah. never mind.
>>> HP ... needs only tell 15m tablets
They better start selling paracetamol then...
>>> "There's a reason why we'll do almost $70bn in revenue this year and we'll make over $20, whatever, $26, $27bn in profits," he added.
"Because our customers are stuck with our expensive junk products whether they want them or not." he continued.
Do some research, ffs
Look it up - optical cables are coming down the pipe and will be compatible with existing Thunderbolt ports.
Oh, sorry, facts getting in the way a bit there. Pay no attention.
...the port can also handle forthcoming optical cables - and the "gubbins" for sending and receiving the optical signal is also in the cable. If the gubbins were in the port the port would not be compatible with optical cables and you'd be whining about that instead.
Read up on the subject.
>>> - algorithms can use the sound of keyclicks to guess [...] what is being typed.
Is that claim actually supposed to be taken seriously?
Ooooh, a private plate Range Rover... * yawn*
... "Everyone just bursts out laughing when they see it and it's unique."
They're all unique, genius - that's kind of the point.
>>> The company said today that 200,000 people had tested the beta version of Office 365 since it was released in November last year.
Lots of people test all of Microsoft's software, but it's still all a big pile of shite.
My bandwidth cost has NEVER decreased, and I can pick up a 1Tb hard disk for £40-50. Nuff said.
Our IT supplier wanted £90 for a GPS dongle I can get off Amazon for £15. Anything like this has failure written all over it.
The factory where my father used to work categorised employees as "Cost Units." I wonder what these robots will be classified as/
Heh heh heh
Eight and a half billion dollars.
What a crap article.
Re: Attention. We Interrupt This Programme with a Dose of Reality...
Pipe down, you, you'll make the trolls cry. Coming in here throwing facts around. Tsk.
>>> That would be Apple fanbois, I believe.
Not when they're on two year contracts they don't.
Apple have been quietly patenting a lot of ideas which might relate to this, like an iPod which links to your fitness machine at the gym to record your workouts, etc. It did take them years before the iMac would pair with stereo bluetooth headphones though.
