Did I miss the article about Microsoft purchasing CCS Insight?
The problem comes when the other person thinks it is standard to swerve to starboard.....
What happens to driverless cars in tunnels?
Perhaps they should be integrating things a bit more and knock out a 27in retina screen iPad, or one with an attached keyboard so you can use it while resting on your lap. Now what could they call that? An iLaptop?
Re: Next: Immortality
If they offered the men penis extensions, would that balance things?
Re: Just a drop?
"Unless it's been changed I'm pretty sure earlier articles mentioned that it couldn't be deleted from the iPhone 6.."
Another good reason not to buy one....
I don't want it
I have to use win8.1 very occasionally. Last night I actually managed to get the screen split between desktop and mail app so I could see both at once. Very helpful but how the fuck I got there I have no idea....
...to Microsoft on the birth of your new word.
Must have taken a trained bollocksmith ages to come up with that.
We need hover boots. Been waiting far too long for them
Re: NO WIFI, LTE OR 4G: Not enough Battery!!!!! RTFLOL
.... until you discover they don't allow tethering and you get charged god knows how much per megabyte...
12 inch screen, 800g, keyboard...
Congratulations to MS for inventing...... the laptop!!!
Re: Truisms Spoken Aloud
I've always been puzzled about the word route and the American pronunciation. I recall a Mr Chuck Berry (a gentleman of the American persuasion) singing a popular tune about Route (pron. ROOT) 66 and yet, in conversation it becomes Route (ROUT) 66.
As for Huawei, I would suggest a brand name of Happle or Hamsung
Re: Standards of Service
oh, that's a troll is it? I just thought it was a dick head. Thanks for the clarification
Idiot analyst invents the netbook.
Gosh - no-one thought of that before
Funny old world
What are all these governments complaining about? They keep telling us that it is necessary to keep tabs on our every move and that 'if you have done nothing wrong, you have no need to worry'. None of these governments should worry then if they have done no wrong, but they are worrying quite a lot.
I bet these xp users are still pondering whether to update to the Nokia 3410 or stick with the 3310 as they cruise around in their Rover 75.
Will this be able to control the iHover boots?
Re: Radio Silence in Cars ?
Can you let me know the FM frequency of 6Music and 4extra then please?
That's way too heavy for the frivolously stupid. Their poor little wrists would probably snap.
Re: Obvious Conclusion
When you do, could you please not lay waste to Laos and Cambodia with your illegal chemical weapons again.
It's a brave country that uses napalm against civilian children.
... the psychedelic paint job one, had FUC100C
Re: Wait.... there's still work for Elop to do
You seem to have forgotten where he came from. Wiki tells us "During the 3 years Elop was Nokia CEO, Nokia revenues fell 40%, Nokia profits fell 95%, Nokia market share collapsed in smartphones from 34% to 3.4%, Nokia's credit rating went from A to junk, Nokia's share price dropped 60% in value and Nokia's market capitalization lost 13 Billion dollars in value."
Having completed Part A, the phone business (target of the masterplan) becomes nice and cheap - especially as only one buyer is interested - so M$ save themselves several billion on the purchase.
And now, the Trojan Horse returns to the mothership with a top position, huge salary and quite probably a generous 'welcome package'.
It reads like a Jeffrey Archer story - if it wasn't true you'd never believe it.
Nokia shareholders must be delighted to have seen their investment wiped out by this chicanery.
Obviously never heard of 6music
Re: Yes to FM switch off, but only if it switches off BBC radio.
Don't change the head, just get a Pure Highway. It's very simple.
There again, I am easily able to tell the difference between a classical music based station and a speech based station.
Blame Sky then - they were the ones that started all this pay pay pay for TV, so they get subscriptions AND have adverts to grab even more.
BTSport is not mandatory on the Sky platform. If you don't want to pay BT, don't.
Just keep supporting the utterly pure and respectable Murdoch organisation, you know, the one that paid £336m corporation tax on its £6.4bn income....
"RIP MotoGP on Eurosport :( Now only available on BT Sport."
Which is available on Sky (like eurosport is) and Virgin and is free to BT Broadband subscribers..In other words, a wider audience than Eurosport.
You had to pay for Eurosport, now you have to pay for BT,
If you had said RIP to MotoGP on the BBC, you would have a point.
MotoGP is now far bigger here because of the BBC's coverage (in spite of the crap commentators), not because of the French Eurosport's delayed coverage.
Football I couldn't give a free-kick about.
Re: One-sixth of nothing
If you can't plug anything in it does rather limit things. Ideal though for the user experienced in Battleships and Solitaire.
Apple's cash reserves - reported as $146bn - matches the amount of foreign reserves the US government hold.
I expect the next new thing to be the iAfrican Country
Re: And now the world waits...
MS service packs are only free up to the point when they get renamed as new versions. Windows 7 is Vista SP3, Windows 8 = Vista SP4.
If 8.1 was called WIndows 9 instead would that justify charging for it?
"Take the best tablet and make it better. "
Yes, the new Nexus is very good indeed.
Re: But slowly – FF IS supported!!
"they say as long as you have XP SP3, and latest FF, you will have no security problems..."
and they are giving a money-back guarantee as well
Re: Mini or Note, mini-note perhaps?
I prefer the name 'Zune4'
Re: Surely the issue
Similar situation here. I'm in a small market town in North Suffolk. BT fibre is available sometimes - 50 feet from my house there is 76Mb connectivity and has been there for 9 months. When I ask about being connected I am told it may be available in March 2014, some 2 years after the initial estimate. My only other option to get a line >20Mb is to use a satellite connection at £75/month.
BT's rollout is pretty crap but it is substantially better than Sky, talktalk or virgin who, in the first 2 cases will wait for BT to install the kit and then insist on using it and in the third case are not in the slightest interested.
A plague on all your houses until someone can bridge that massive 50 feet and get a bloody wire to my house.
A curse on your houses
Downvoted everybody for everything as I fell asleep halfway down the first page
OpenSUSE 12.3 has MariaDB as default.
Re: Fingerprint scanning less secure than a PIN?
I understand the 5S has just been awarded Product of the Year by the prestigious Rohipnol Users Group
Gosh! A two-position stand.
Mmmmmm a real crowd puller
Your wishes granted
I have the ideal smart watch. Phone/wifi/bluetooth/mp3 player/Android and it cost a few pence.
Just gaffer tape your smart phone to your wrist :)
All these companies seem to ignore the fact that women usually have smaller wrists and having one of these huge carbunkles on a dainty wrist aint gonna happen. Thats 50% of the potential market ignored. However, they will have their use as any male seen with one of these can be immediately rejected as a possible dick head.
Re: Fairly happy bunny
Wash your mouth out! Cox should be kept as far away as possible from F1. Coulthard and shouty man do a really quite uninteresting commentary but even that surpasses the fox shooter. I suppose he could replace the tedious golf-obsessed twat that fronts the Sky show with Hinge and Bracket.
Re: Not just football
Its a *nightmare* in a bubble car. Get it right ;)
And we haven't been told who will be commentating - it might suit them to have Cox/Parrish but we can only hope that it doesnt. Gavin Emmett & Nick Harris would be my choice. At least they can pronounce the riders names properly which cannot be said for Tony Moodily and Jillian Riddler who keep talking about the brothers Espaggro.
I just hope they can keep adverts away and not keep trying to flog us sanitary towels etc in the middle of a race
Well, knock me down with a feather
Sue sue sue
I saw a rainbow in the sky yesterday and immediately alerted Apple lawyers to sue <insert preferred deity> for blatant copying of an Apple design.
These bloody deities will do anything for a fast buck.
You have forgotten that it is equipped with the Infinite Improbability Drive.
Why is the sea curling up at the edges?
Yes, a $300 turd is far more reasonable than a $1200 turd, but it's still a turd.
Re: re small village in scotland
Small town in north suffolk. 19.5Mbs. Lovely.
50 yards away, 70Mbs but BT can't afford that vast length of string to get Infinity to me until Octemberary 2130
R5L may have improved but surely the best use for DAB is 6Music and 4extra. Topped up with a little R4, there's no need to tune any further.
Sod it - why not go for a 60inch plasma screen tablet. Now that's innovation!!
Is this from the Fourth Sector?
This thing you call windows
Do you still need to install third party anti-virus and anti-malware software on windows 8.
After all this time and all the problems with security, I sincerely hope so.
No third party (lack of) security software on my machines thank you, but they are running openSUSE, PCLinuxOS and Mint.
