Surely they missed a trick here:
Defence Imagery and Geospatial Organisation (DIGO)
should have been
Defence Imagery aNd Geospatial Organisation (DINGO)
but with the US government in shutdown due to toys out of pram, isn't now a good time for IT to leave the embassy, get sent to Sweden, sort that out?
I know I will get lambasted by the small minded for this but...
What about windows phone 8 device?
(There are possibly more of those out there with NFC embedded than Blackberrys with NFC...)
anyway, there is no such thing as a fish. doesn't exist.
Re: sod that....
Reg Article in a few years time.....
Decent developers are hard to find and too expensive...
Developers lock in major problem and massive unpredictable cost for companies .....
And AC comments:
sod that.... just buy an off the shelf system ... hell of a lot cheaper then paying for developers
What works for some, doesn't work for all. Thankfully as a company, you can choose which way to go.
Ivan Anywhere - been there done that!
a colleague in Canada came up with this around 2005 to 2007.
Re: The list of non-dangerous creatures in Oz:
Welcome to the University of Woolamaroo.
Look, you being called Michael is going to cause a bit of a problem...
Do ya mind if we call ya Bruce?
When are Nokia putting this on a phone?
The latest PureView?
should they ask you for your name and credit card number on this site too?
single point of failure
i remember the "single point of failure" complaints made when Vodafone had a similar outage last year.
I will repeat what one person said....
if you are that concerned about single point of failure, why aren't you carrying around an O2 and an Orange phone then?
network down for a day = a day of getting work done.
Is anyone else reading ice faires as ice fairies?
I see what you did there!
Game of phones.... very good (for the day after a 4 day weekend).
but who does that make the stunted dwarf in your mind then?
I seem to recall that when siri first made it onto the scene a lot of people asked a lot of dumb questions to the phone. What is the best phone being one of them.
The response is what you are seeing in these articles.
This was months before this "scandal" arose
I am guessing that they finally flipped a switch from "joke response" to "actual search", then this news item hit, so they flicked the switch back.
(honestly not an apple fan, have to use the products and they suck)
One speaker/lecturer handled it brilliantly....
This was at university, but similar situation.
Guest lecturer at front giving interesting talk. Guy(male) at back (long black hair, slightly high pitched voice) asking annoying questions.
After question 5 he actually raises an interesting point, but lecturer is frustrated, so says
"The girl at the back has made a good point...."
no more questions, lecture continues uninterrupted.
Re: Ecosystem and accessories
Couldn't agree with you more.
a SmartPhone is one where the battery last more than 1 day/2 days
iPhone/Android/WP7 are all dumbphones, but perhaps great pda's
Ecosystem and accessories
I may be wrong but...
With a quad core processor, decent screen, decent battery life, and connectivity options (wifi/BT/NFC), there really isn't much further you can take the hardware on a handset.
And so it will become more about the accessories and ecosystem rather than the handset itself.
With ideas like Ubuntu for Android, and the Asus padphone, the apps available in your app store of choice, cloud storage solutions then the thing in your pocket will be more a personal processing unit than a phone.
Whoever is best placed to take advantage of that will be the one to succeed.
Space Penguin anyone
I recall an old online game called space penguin. this just feels like a bit of a rip off.
A few jokes I heard recently
What do Nokia and Apple now have in common?
No more jobs
Steve Jobs' text was meant to say: "I reign as CEO of Apple". Damn you auto-correct!
When I saw my girlfriend playing football for the first time I knew she was a keeper
Tablet OS comparisons from one manufacturer
Are Acer trying to provide reference hardware that runs all of the different flavours of Tablet OS so you can see which one you prefer?
I look forward to putting Nokia Tyres on my car in 5 years time
Mobile phone to landline, only the mobile can end the call
When on a call that is mobile phone to landline, only the mobile phone can end the call.
I have had accidental calls before to the home number and no matter how many times I hang up my phone, it doesn't matter, as soon as I pick it up again the call is still there.
from the 50's
Perhaps the cop was straight out of the 50's where they used use Electrocution therapy on people with perceived deficiencies?
RE: didn't a UK company/university already do this?
it was a Dutch company
didn't a UK company/university already do this?
I seem to remember seeing a video about 6 months ago showing just this same idea, but in colour and up to 60fps video....
Just tested the route from my work to home.
Application ignores the mostly flat national cycle route path (on footpath next to a main road) 40 minutes, in favour of the quiet roads that take you up 3 extreemly steep hills (and back down the other side), 240 minutes
can't wait to see one of the meat-bag players try to tackle something with solid metal legs and no pain receptors!!!
£26.65 per day
4 hrs (as some have mentioned this is how long the place is open for per day)
26.65 / 4 = £6.66 ph
I think we have stumbled onto something here!!!

porcine portfolios.... is that a Porkfolio?

US PTO won't go away
Blanket approve all patents = lots of lawsuits = judges, courts and lawyers busy and employed and paid large sums of money, which gets taxed....

The people that made the 'oversight' won't be changed by voting in a new government.... it is just the bosses of the bosses that would change.... and as you rightly say, in name only
Competition Commission anyone?
"Deutsche Telekom is talking to Vodafone, France Telecom and Telefonica. An anonymous source told the FT:“If we’re lucky, we could end up with a three-horse race.” "
Vodafone.... France Telecom (owns Orange), Telefonica (owns O2)....
would have thought none of these guys will be allowed to buy it due to competition/monopoly problems
