Re: Calling Tim Cook
Haters gotta hate, eh?
Really? Can you point me at some references for this?
Might be a valid patent, might not. On the other hand, Samsung has enough money to encourage this kind of aggression as a barrier to entry for new Android companies.
Re: The Wild-West days are here again
Interesting point. There's only two problems: (1) by the time a government decides it wants these it will be too late, and (2) their usual contractors would take 20 years to build the array, and fail anyway.
I take it that reading comprehension is not your strong point?
Re: Obviously ...
Would this also be 11 year old battery tech, perchance?
Not sniping, just curious.
Somebody's going to be annoyed
So it's not only Apple that screws up when choosing names, then:
Nice, and well deserved. Now when do Alice and Bob get an award for all the hard work they've put in all these years?
He deserves a coveted SPG T-Shirt as a fellow traveller, surely?
Gasp! So Adobe's odd policy of charging more for downloads than boxed media finally bites the big one.
I'm astonished it lasted this long. Welcome to the nineties, Adobe!
The real crime here would be putting ketchup on the bacon. The adding sugar business is a slippery slope - before you know it you'll have gone all North American and embraced maple syrup.
Tasty brown bread, no butter, lots of bacon. You know it makes sense.
Just wait until the upgrade - that laser will be awesome once the illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator is attached.
Re: Oh come on
Actually, killing VBA on the Mac back in 2006 was a porting issue. Lots of gnarly assembly language was involved. You can find the details here: http://www.schwieb.com/blog/2006/08/08/saying-goodbye-to-visual-basic/.
Re: Koch brothers takeover of IEEE?
Put a sock in it, will you? Leave the feral politics and zealotry at the US border and give the rest of us some peace.
Twisting the knife
Here's an awesome teardown of PHP for those who haven't seen it yet :
Re: Its not just opengl
Now that's just missing the point. Spectacularly.
Mono is useful only if your app was written for WP7 first. That's not exactly useful for (a) existing apps or (b) people writing new stuff that want to target markets where they'll actually make money.
It would have to be unregistered, and always topped up with cash. Use plastic once, and the connection can be made.
So Ballmer's throwing another bunga-bunga party? I'll never be able to look at his red sweaty face in the same way again...
Looks like RDP is only for non-Home versions of Windows if I read things correctly. Which is a shame, as I'd love to stop using VNC with a Mac.
I think you've picked a nice metric to see if Microsoft has fixed its internal warfare. In order to port Office to ARM, they'll have to port the UI to Metro (if I've managed to make sense of their roadmap).
The Office group refused to port to the old Windows tablet PCs, after all.
I knew you could do it -- an article about Apple that didn't include "fanboi". Way to go!
If you ask nicely, maybe Ms. Lohan will agree to model for a custom Playmobil figurine. That way, we'll have Lohan on Lohan to play with as an acronym...
Apple Mail works nicely with Exchange if you use the DavMail gateway:
I gave up on Entourage when Microsoft pushed out an update that would crash it on random mouse clicks and left it like that for weeks.
Oh you tease
Mentioning TechCrunch and "solid sources" in the same sentence? Awesome!
So... time to return the favour and write a H.264 plugin for Chrome then?
Ugh. Those are some pretty appalling prices. 49 squids for a Sony A300? Hop over to eBay, and the going price is closer to 200. A fool and his money, eh?
All is explained
So now we know how the dinosaurs died -- not enough oregano in their diet.
A quick grope around the Internets found this: http://www.scribd.com/doc/35072457/Jackeey-Response. It's not totally convincing -- the device info and phone number should have been hashed.
The action now moves to the hardware side. After all, one reason Apple's fond of H.264 is the battery implications of moving to a software codec on iPhone and iPads. I wonder what's going to be available in a year or two?
I wonder if they've remembered to encrypt the control link this time?
The Benny Hill version
You're right, it does work better with Yakety Sax. Try it with the right soundtrack:
Ah. ACPO. So the investigation is being done by an outfit that was set up to be immune to FOI requests. Now isn't that comforting?
How about making the iPhone version cache web pages so we can read The Reg on the tube?
Gotta be a fake -- I can't see a Clanger anywhere.
It's Amazon's fault, not Bookeen. They've decreed that you can only have one DRM system on your device.
Can we have a Playmobil crew?
