Re: Fascinating case, more on popehat
It's more serious than that. If an agent of the copyright holder made the files available for download and advertised it on pirate sites, then the people who downloaded them obtained them legally.
How many flying cars were there going to be on the road and in the air by the year 2000?
If I'm able to have the car drop me off, and then send it away to a car park, or back home; and summon it back to me when I want to go home myself, then I will definitely buy one.
Re: Wait a minute
Yes, I assumed boyfriend or husband as well.
Re: lower limit?
13 is a bit old for that. They will probably be too big to fit up the chimney by then. However it will be very useful for anyone looking for a career in delivering newspapers and adverts for takeaway pizzas.
Re: Main beef with LinkedIn is the SPAM
The website asks for your email password, and then spams everyone on the contacts list. If students have emailed you about couse fees for example, then you will get the spam.
I don't think it really matters where her hosting provider is. If she is living in the US, she has to comply with American laws.
Some do have microphones, but most don't. It isn't so easy to pick up a conversation from all the background noise and other conversations.
I don't understand
Surely the NSA can find out everything that is going on at Groklaw by visiting the site just like anyone else. It is the sort of thing they do, and it is called open source intelligence. BBC Monitoring in Caversham do it for the UK authorities.
Re: NFC does make more sense
It's really simple though. All you need to do is go to
Print out the pdf
Install the Google Goggles App - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.unveil
Or whatever the equivalent is for your phone's operating system
Carefully cut out the code for the time table you want, for example if you want to go to London, it is timetable number 7
Open Google Goggles, and scan the QR code, making sure your phone doesn't see any of the other codes before it gets to the one you want to scan
Tap on the link to open the website
Tap on on the link to download the pdf
Select which app you want to open it in, eg Adobe Reader
Scroll down the pdf until you find the train you want
What could be easier?
Well, maybe you could install https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.hafas.android.railteam
and tell it where you want to go. There are other apps. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.em.pubtran.london is better if you are travelling within the London travel card area, but otherwise Railteam seems to be the best.
Re: Retail Win 8
If they sell it with a new iMac, then surely that is fine?
Re: Fanbois taught to use a GIMPED Windows...
To be fair, does anyone use OSX Server? www.apple.com and www.icloud.com for example both run on Linux.
Re: I predict this will come to nothing
In that case, you should put XP or 7 on it. Nobody uses Windows 8.
I am an accountant. I have a MacBook with Windows XP running in Parallels so I can run all my Sage stuff on it. I chose it because when I compared Macs with the equivalent spec PC, the price was actually pretty competitive. I also have my Adobe stuff on it, not in the Windows VM, for playing around with photos.
Re: Way cool
This is about people using Safari on their iDevices. They probably had no agreement with Google at all.
And it is the court that sends the summons, not the claimant.
It means that for example you can pay a subscription to access "the cloud" hotspots, but most of the hotspots it gives you access to are free anyway.
Re: Could it be ....
In Excel you can have more than 256 columns and 65536 rows on your spreadsheet.
Accounting just want to tick off a list of fixed assets to say they have seen them.
Ask for a numbered list of the assets they want to audit, and put numbered stickers randomly on the kit to match the stuff they want to tick off on the list. If you want to really impress them, pick some very old stuff on the list and tell them it has been scrapped.
Re: Holy undergarments
YouTube accounts for something like 98% of all video on demand, and video on demand accounts for quite a bit of total internet traffic, so 40% isn't that surprising.
They are a boy-band who upset their fan base of teenage girls when wishing Laura Robson good luck at Wimbledon.
Well of course. When websites ask for my address, I give them the address of the local rubbish dump, so they can send the junk mail directly to them rather than have me redirect it via the recycle bin outside. That's when I don't pick Afghanistan as it is the first country on the list. In any case, by the time the password arrived in the post, people will have forgotten why they wanted to visit the site.
Sign up and they send a password through the post? That would verify the address.
This is not an EUCD takedown notice. That would be issued to the hosting provider of the infringing content. They, however, are probably not based in the EU, and therefore won't respond to EUCD notices, or in the US where they would respond to DMCA notices, the US equivalent.
This is an order to ISPs to block access to websites using the same technology that is used to block access to child porn.
O2 shows a message when you visit the site which says
"The page you're looking for has been blocked.
We're complying with a court order that means access to this website has
to be blocked to protect against copyright infringement."
Other ISPs show a very similar message.
They would have a case for taking libel action against the ISP for claiming that the site was involved in copyright infringement when they are not.
Re: Keep in mind.
Aren't they broadly the same size as Koreans?
Usually you need to pay extra to cover things like cash and jewelery. Gold bars would come under that section.
But remember that the same unit of currency, whether a Dollar bill or a Bitcoin, can change hands several times in a year, so you are not measuring the same thing.
Certainly, money passes through my account on a monthly cycle, most businesses are the same so I could potentially see the same money back in my account two months after I spend it.
Re: Maybe not
I think what Jobs had was vision. He had the vision to see that a tablet computer should be different to a desktop / laptop computer. It should have big icons arranged in a grid, only show one program on screen at a time and so on. Of course he relied on other people to turn that into reality, but while the iPad / Android style UI may seem obvious now, nobody else saw it before he did.
Re: The purchaser has to know the PayPal account ID and password first
I'd say two factor, because presumably if you know the password, you can install the app and set up the account on any handset you like. I don't know if they use SMS or an automated phone call to tie it to a particular phone number. That would make it 3 factor.
Re: I remember when
I remember that too. Driving around with MS AutoRoute print-outs on your lap wasn't much fun.
I've just looked, apparently they still sell it. I would have thought it had long since been replaced with Bing Maps.
You could say the same about most companies. They don't sell software, or at least they don't sell much software. They sell adverts. People mostly go to Google to search for things, so they sell adverts related to what people are searching for. Yes, they do other things like email as well, but it is mostly classified adverts.
Re: Tu go or not Tu go
It does pick up my existing contacts on both my Android phone and iPad.
You can ask for a PAC code to port your O2 number to Three in the usual way. If you do that, it will stop working in TuGo, but maybe Three has a similar service that you can use with it.
Re: Having our cake and eating it too
Yes, PC World, or at any rate Currys which is owned by the same company as PC World is the UK equivalent of Best Buy. Best Buy own Carphone Warehouse in the UK which also sells Apple products (iPhones, iPads and some laptops and accessories), so you can use them as an example as well.
The cruical point here is that there are two different Apple companies involved. A wholesaler based in Ireland, and a retailer based in the UK.
Apple want to set the wholesale price between the Irish and UK companies as high as possible, so that more profit is made in Ireland where the tax rate is lower. When selling to PC World or Carphone Warehouse, they obviously want to make it as high as possible so that they make the profit rather than another company, but if they set it too high, then they will sell kit from other manufacturers instead, so the negotiations will lead to a fair market price. That is the market price that HMRC will expect Apple Ireland to use when selling stuff to their own Apple UK retailer.
The UK retailer is responsible for paying for the shelf space and PFYs in just the same way that PC World and Carphone Warehouse are responsible for paying for their shelf space and PFYs. Apple has "Geniuses", Carphone Warehouse has a "Geek Squad" and PC World has "Tech Guys". Yes, I agree that the Apple employees do know more about their products than PC World or Carphone Warehouse employees.
If Apple decides to spend more money on better trained staff and fancier shelves in a nicer location than PC World, then that's up to them, I don't see why that would justify a discount from the wholesaler. What does justify more money from Apple is that you can take your PC World bought MacBook to the Genius Bar at an Apple Store, and they will fix it under the terms of Apple's manufacturer's warranty. PC World only fix their own stuff under the terms of their Coverplan warranty, which they charge extra for, and I don't recommend anyone takes it out.
Re: Having our cake and eating it too
The thing is, how much do they sell it to PC World for? They aren't going to sell it for a £1 margin. The shelf space, and the cost of employing a PFY to sell copies of Norton Antivirus along with it cost a lot more than that. Once you have that, you have a fair wholesale price for the laptops entering the UK market, and HMRC would expect Apple UK to pay the same price.
That didn't keep Bernie Madof or Allen Stanford out of jail.
Re: In this case the distinction would not have mattered
People decide, by voting for candidates with those policies , to give money to the government in the form of taxation, so that it can afford to do the things they want the government to do for them. They decide that a fair way to split up the bill is based on ability to pay, so they introduce an income tax.
If you do some work in return for a bag of carrots, that is the same as if you did work for money, and then went out to the shops and bought a bag of carrots with that money, so it would seem fair to tax it in the same way.
 If someone stood for election promising to abolish the NHS, benefits, road maintenance, and all the other things the government spends money on, how many votes would they get?
You have to pay the Blackberry Tax in addition to the Microsoft Tax, so it is always going to be cheaper to only pay the Microsoft Tax.
Re: Why go to all this trouble...
Wallmart's UK division, Asda, certainly doesn't sell firearms or ammunition. In coutries like this where getting hold of firearms is a lot more difficult, people may well be interested in something like this.
I use it so I can watch TV on http://pluzz.francetv.fr/ and similar sites without it making racist comments about my IP address.
The problem is that Apple's cash isn't actually stashed away in Ireland, it is stashed away in Texas, but owned by an Irish company. Irish tax law says you pay tax if your activities take place in Ireland. Apple Operations International's activities take place in Texas, not Ireland, so it pays no Irish tax.
US tax law says you pay tax if you are an American company, no matter where you are based in the world. Apple Operations International is an Irish company, so it pays no US tax.
The Bible has Jesus's exact lineage back to Adam, and we have a reasonably good idea when he was born. Not 1AD. The bible says it was during the reign of King Herod, and King Herod died in 4BC.
They teach it in Religious Studies, and they teach a variety of different religions.
Of course they don't think the world is 10,000 years old, as God created it on 5th October 3761BC, about 5773 years ago.
Re: Burden of Proof
If he paid by card, they could trace him entirely from cctv records, because they would know which card was used in that till. I'm guessing he thought about that.
Re: "dish liquid"?.....
Washing up liquid. Fairy liquid (other brands exist)
Re: Burden of Proof
He had the Lego things, very probably they were stolen, but were they stolen from Target? He could have, and probably did steal from other stores as well.
Re: More likely its the survey is trying to provide too many decimal places
I still sometimes deploy virtual machines with XP, because it works fine for what I want it to do, and the hardware requirements are lower than for Windows 7.
XP was the current Windows product up until 7th November 2006. At that time, Tiger was the current shipping OSX release. The last security update from Apple for Tiger was on 10th September 2009. The 9th November update was Leopard/Snow Leopard only. I think 7-8 years support from Microsoft is pretty reasonable.
What do you mean by "cloud"
Most SMB's use "cloud" services for their email, and were doing so long before hosted solutions became known as cloud solutions. Back in the days of dial-up, it was the only way you could do email.
