Re: Mozilla is as stupid as any big company.
Just like MS did with Windows 8.........DOH!!!!
How to tell?
I could be a 70 year old, a 40 year old or a 10 year old. How you gonna tell on the internet?
Let me guess AVG has something to flog that will "help"?

Re: Where have you been?
Working, how about you :P
"Those who decide to remain on the Windows XP platform will be pretty much defenceless against these attacks unless third-party security solutions, such as Network-based Intrusion Prevention System (NIPS) and Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) are in use"
Is anyone actually using XP, or in fact any version of windows, without a software or hardware firewall not made by MS between them and the internet?!?!?
Woah there, you'll progress to bigger sticks and bigger nails, and soon, you'll make a stick with a nail so big, it will destroy us all!
WOW, IE won't render a competitors search engine correctly !!!!
On a completely unrelated note, not in the slightest way linked to the above, guess we will have to use Bing instead.
Wasn't this from the same company that wanted standards for browsers then blew it off when it actually happened?
Ahh come on, he did screw up by inventing the nuke so he's just trying to get his heaven account back in the black again :)
Makes you wonder why they bothered with the COO position if they are going to look elsewhere, presumably they will start at the local crazy house?
Re: WOPR: Today, ze home - Tomorrow...
He is serious.....and don't call him Shirley
How about Justin Bieber as the Dr ;)
Thirded, having seem him play Khan and Sherlock I think it would work really well, but I guess they won't use either of the main Sherlock characters as they couldn't write them out nor fulfill both filming schedules if they didn't.
Re: Good luck Lester...
Wish you well, although Fried-Egg Sarnie would be a great name for a future Android OS :)
"In the US you'd have a hard job actually finding a car with manual transmission, unless it's a sports car imported from Europe."
Oh come on, don't pull that, the corvette is available with manual as are some US manufactured VW's and Subaru's and that's just the ones I've seen myself and I live in the UK for 49 weeks of the year. Just because most US buyers pick the auto option doesn't mean that manual doesn't exist in the US.
not Johnny 5, phone 6 and Shakin 7 ?
"The guys that attack me do not attack my technical analysis, they attack me like you have, for perceived personal failings, i.e. ad hom attacks."
Hmm, where is my attack on you, quoting a response is not an attack on someone. It is listening to what someone says rather than just ignoring them to carry on with a sermon.
At no point did I say:
"Eadon isn't going to listen to anyone else so why should I listen to Eadon"
"The reason I am not popular here is that I know exactly what I am talking about from a technical POV, I know my onions."
If you aren't going to listen to anyone else's point of view, but think that you are always right, then why in the hell do you think anyone is going to listen to a word you say.
There's three types of people, those that don't know anything, those that know their stuff but also know they don't know everything and those that think they know it all, but demonstrate time and again that they really don't have a clue.
Options 1 & 2 are easy to get along with, option 3 isn't, as they have a steadfast belief that the world is wrong and they alone, are the only ones that are correct.
But what happens when an option 3 meets another option 3, PARADOX!!!
Yes there are a ton of others you could have had, but the 10 you picked were all bang on as far as I'm concerned, all ten have swallowed up their fair share of my time (actually probably much more than that).
Killer Instinct Arcade would be on their if it was my list, the only arcade I have ever 100% finished (even with eyedol) but it's your list not mine so 10/10 :)
and you shouldn't post if you can't read.
I am aware of why they got the low frequency block, but not why the sort order came out with three nearest to the TV frequencies.
Now did Three pick that block or did the other ops dig deep into their wallets in order to put three in the most painful spot?
....for the BOfH is back from his Christmas hols, was starting to wonder if Dilbert had managed to eliminate another competitor.
Re: LG TV
Bought in the Jan sale in 2012, so guessing 2011. Doesn't show in the premium features menu anymore.
Don't have a lot of choice right now, since LG hurled lovefilm at us Netflix is no longer a choice, unless I want to watch it via a smaller screen on my Xbox, as they removed it from the dash to make way for lovefilm.
Lovefilm is ok when you get it going but the LG app is awful on the LW650t, it takes 2 mins to load the app (sometimes more) from the dash and forget trying to browse, better to do that on your pc then jump straight to it on the TV. That said, once it gets going it seems fine, so far no pauses even at peak times.
Re: Wonder how much tax HMV paid
"Amazon avoiding taxis is equivalent to a very rich murderer getting away with it due to a technicality that can only be revealed by a horde of blood sucking parasetical lawyers manuipulating natural lanagage and bending the legalease until they get their vermim off the hook."
Really?!?! You honesty think that's a good comparison, WOW, swinging wildly and making stuff up is very hard to counter with facts, so I'm not even going to bother.
"It doesn't make it right, it makes it 'legal' in a very loose sense (before the loop hole is plugged and deemed illegal a week later)."
Last time I checked legal means legal until it is made illegal. When it is I'll be right behind HMRC for bringing a court case, until that point it is still legal, despite popular opinion.
Re: Wonder how much tax HMV paid
So, if your line of argument is correct then, no doubt, when HMRC last contacted you advising you of your tax code you contacted them and asked them to jack it up a bit as you felt you were not paying enough tax??
Doubt it, no-one wants to pay more tax than they have to, if a company does then that means less money to go around (one of which is less/no pay raise), but I'm sure you would accept that without moaning right?
Re: There is another fun assumption floating around..
"It is possible to block editing when you generate the document, but I have only ever come across 2 docs that were protected that way."
and those can be quickly removed with any number of PDF security removal tools, both online and offline versions :)

Re: re: Citroen press release about Charles Peugeot
You're right, that so much funnier than my comment!!
Reminds me of the Citroen press release about Charles Peugeot being appointed Sales Director for UK.
Good to see product testing is alive and rotting nicely in it's grave ;)
Re: If you're not pulling together...
Hmm, that's remarkably accurate......food for thought indeed.

Looks like it's not just Samsungs, reports on XDA include HTC sets too. Only Jelly Bean can save us as this problem is on ICS and Gingerbread. The Apple congregation are going to lap this up :)

Simple trick, look at the author, if it's Lewis you know it's going to be flamebait, that's what he writes.

Re: A bit too much misinformation
But I'm glad they put that passage in first though, at least I got rid of my lunch at the start of the article.

2 channels ?!?!?
You were lucky, we had 1 channel and it was only black, it broadcast for 2 minutes a day.......but we were happy!!!

Re: small sample
"400 people in Minnesota, New York, and California, and in China and Korea"
80 people per area?!?!? That must have taken 5 researchers a little over a lunch hour to do, wonder where the very briefly set up camp?
Not to mention peepz are supposedly ready to hand over cash for an iPride 5 without even having seen any kind of spec? Wow "owned" is the only word that comes to mind
Re: Kindle Fire will arrive in the UK and Europe by "late fall,"
Meh, got bored of waiting and bought an Acer A500 instead. There's generating interest in a product and then there's just being lazy and taking potential customers for granted, oh well.
Well if you auto approve updates and download all products then you got caught napping didn't you. Tsk tsk.
Calling all lawyers
Isn't this illegal interception of e-mails? Didn't phorm do something like this and get crucified for it?
Re: Assuming it was charging at the time
True, but it has bothered me for a while that you see chargers with higher and higher current outputs. If they shipped this with a beefy enough charger it is possible it could have burnt the tracks. Whatever caused it, it had to have been plugged into something at the time, either the charger or it was tethered.
