You forgot their 'hip yoof' phone the Kin.
@wolftone I was with you until you used the childlike argument that X is ok because Y is worse.
There are are still folk who believe that Win 10 does not spy them. Despite M$ declaring to the world that it does. I don't know if they are genuine or M$ shills.
So the spying part is fine... just get rid of the tiles? um, OK.
'..but hey, nothing's perfect, and it's FREE man!'
You sir have summed up the mentality of sheeple brilliantly. I heard the same defence used for Windows 10 use.
I switched to uBlock Origin when I heard that Ablock started to sell out. You can even use adblock lists in it.
When the heavens open your seats will get wet very fast and you will curse those gull-wings.
They look flash but are not used for good reason.
Avast! Just run it in Gaming mode = zero pup-ups.
Paying someone NOT to do something is extortion. Just like the' protection' rackets of olde.
You forgot one detail. The wires have to be curly or it is not a bomb.
Somebody makes a game pays the 'rights holder' money to use their music in it. A gamer posts segments of the game on Youtube but has to silence the sound track, thereby negating any chance of somebody hearing the music and purchasing it. This is one of the reasons I stopped buying music. The Internet is full of free radio stations. The sooner copyright abuse dies the better.
Only one crowbar? I have a wardrobe full of coat hangers. What 'am a gonna do?
All super powers fall. History predicts that. Let's hope this one is televised.
We have the Olympics to look forward to and now we have the 'other shoe' dropping as well.
I can't wait to learn the true value of 'free upgrade'.
'I thought the benefit of premium was that it didn't have this sort of marketing tie in'
SKY tv have a subscription and has been advertising to it's customers for years. Looks like someone a Spotify noticed that the average person is thick and decided it want in on the action too.
Windows 10 hoovers up all your data, so no privacy there. I'd guess other windows hardware will do similar.
People always squirm at medical breakthroughs, until it starts to save lives. All those who think it is wrong should carry cards saying that they refuse medical help if involved in an accident. I'm sure the techniques and medicines were tested on living tissue at some point. They are not killing or harming anyone and knowledge will further medical science. No wonder we had the dark ages.
I really wish that they would send the waste from the space station into deep space. That way we'll get a visit from aliens about our littering. Much better than listening for radio signals.
So they fail and you reward them by extending your Prime membership? That will teach 'em.
Because it is illegal to rip cds and put dvds on a harddrive, everyone is guilty of copyright infringement and liable for 10 years inside. I welcome it as I have no pension. I will need a roof over my head and 3 squares. It will be cheaper than living in an old person's home. I thank the government for its forward thinking. I'll be turning myself in for 'punishment' on retirement.
From Microsoft's own mouth. Dated July 2015. Read it and weep.
It would be a real story if the animals weren't cut up but used whole.
How does that craft maintain its velocity around the sun to keep it close to the earth? There is so much that can go wrong but still it works and send pictures back. I just can't begin to think about what it takes to put something like that out there. The skills and tech blows me away.
The garden of Eden. The snake, the tree and the Apple device.
A picture of girls on a beach makes women uncomfortable? Really? I think you need to lie down on leather couch and talk to someone.
I have a Note 3 with microSD and removable battery, why would I downgrade to an S6 without the features I value?
Has anyone ever been harmed by looking at the opposite sex? Last time I checked it was engrained into us to become interested in sex at puberty. How is picking a fight with biology ever going to be won? Why not educate children to not be afraid of penises, tits and vaginas or is that too difficult. I think all this censorship is to spare adult's blushes not the children's.
The Big Bang happened everywhere.
@ Sir Sham Cad you obviously don't play electric guitar. Marshall has built its empire on building amps that distort. A guitar amp that acts like a hi-fi amp and dosen't distort will sound shite. Tube screamer pedals and the like overdrive the amp to produce even more distortion. If you have a good valve amp you don't need any distortion pedals.
Half and hour surely and you just hit it to fix the faulty valve. Then when you finally switch off the screen should show a white dot for 5 minutes. It should also double as a space heater. That is a proper REAL telly.
Just forbid any one group having exclusive rights to anything. Then real competition would ignite.
Just look at the mess that the new music streaming services are entering into. Instead of offering everything, the customer has to subscribe to all to hear everything regardless of the price of each service. Services should be like supermarkets you can get everything from everywhere. If one upsets you, you just shop elsewhere. With Sky and co. you have no choice but abstinence.
A logey is when you hack up phlegm from the back of your throat and spit it out. You get more points the greener it is.
This is what happens when you rent things.
It is possible to log into ebay, Something is wrong with your setup. Constant crashing on Youtube playback is what has driven me to opera for video watching. If Opera wasn't sh shit I would switch to it as my main browser. But give it time and FF with roll out the red carpet to encourage change.
I don't understand companys that get big by giving the public what they want, suddenly changing tack and insisting on putting out crap that loses them market share. Roll on FF40...
I'm calling you out. You'd pay more? How about you pay for my licence to prove your point?
On second thoughts don't bother, I enjoy the exercise I get from ripping up the extortion demands.
Americans have been rewriting history since forever. Just watch any Hollywood 'factual' movie.
Remember folks, they was no yesterday and there is no tomorrow, only today.
Don't phones become obsolete in around 18 months? When the network G version changes what then? When you need more memory or an OS update in the future? Some people have the intelligence of a dead spider. Why? Because it's got 8 legs so it's worth emulating.
Now we know why they are pushing Prime so hard.
This is the new MS M.o. They say one thing, let it stew then come out with something different. In the real world we call it lying. When the Xbone was coming we were told that you had to sell your soul to make it work. etc. All this was back-tracked as people didn't go with it. This is just more of the same 'marketing'. You tell the world you are giving them an amnesty and Win 10 will be free. Let is stew, then tell the truth and expect people to still trust you.
I'll just wait for a cracked copy if I can be arsed to try out Win 10. I gave vista a miss and win 8 / metro. When the lies stop and the truth is know, i'll make a decision. but I will never use a rented OS.
Dimmer switches do not cut the power to the light bulb. It just lowers the power to a point that the light cannot shine. The light bulb is always 'on'. But having tinny tiny mono speakers in a bulb does not interest me at all. I've got two ears and quite like bass.
So now you are a (bad) mind reader with no sense of humour.
If you want to believe in a sky fairy that is up to you. I don't agree with brainwashing (religion) but everyone's life is their own and they should be free to believe in crap if they want to. I'm off to worship the chocolate teapot orbiting mercury whilst I'm still allowed to do so. Care to join me?
Whooosh!! Note the big brother icon on my original post.
I'm light heartedly pointing out how stupid this new law will be. It can be used to legalise or criminalise anything they want. If anyone disagrees with them and speaks out about it, then they are extremists and must be jailed. Only a Hitler supporter would agree to this 'law'. Only a war will get rid of it, like last time.
'Powers to close premises where extremists seek to influence others'
Does that mean all churches will be closed down? If so I'm all for it.
Surely the message here to all media providers is that the people who no longer buy infected stuff are protesting. If they were to pirate then buy, those idiots in charge would never get the message. Why insist that people watch adverts on a film they purchase? Why must they control everything even after you have paid your money. I never watch film trailers as they spoil the movie for me, so I will never buy a DVD or Blu ray. But by all means block all the sites, I'll still never buy the official product.
Even if things were dirt cheap they would still contain crap. For example a DVD where you cannot skip trailers and you are called the thief and threatened by the FBI for buying it. A rip is better, all you get is the movie you want and nothing else. So piracy will always exist as it provides a better end product.
If I ran a company that every household in the UK had to pay for whether they used a competing firm or not, I'd be 'good value for money' too. I'd also be a millionaire. I'd' be a billionaire once they started putting people in jail for non payment. Sounds fair to me.
Terra Nova by Steven Spielberg was binned after one series 13 episodes. Billed as the most expensive TV series ever. Fox at it's finest. The track record of Pox TV execs is there for all to see. They specialise in destroying sci-fi. God knows how they ever turn a profit.
This show is not about that. Pre-crime is dead. (soon coming to the UK) This is about one of the telepaths making his way after getting freed from the bath tub.
I just got a wooden ball carved with the note that Fox will murder the show, no matter how good it is.
