Re: "none of them have had any security problems"
the other answer could be you are riddled with issues, but you are blissfully unaware. Like the people that say, "I've never installed AV and not ever had a virus", well how do you know?
Re: Obvious problem, obvious solution
We've had Infinity (in a village) for almost two years and it's been rock solid; well it would be if it weren't for the 10 power cuts a year we tend to get, but even I can't blame BT for that one.
Re: pip pip pip pip...
Prestel on a ZX Spectrum via phone coupler....it's the future! Granted the Trim phone was a bugger to mate up
"Although I've got a Gillette razor. Mach III Turbo, don't remember how many blades its got"
Hmm that's a tough one, if only there was some sort of clue in the name.......
Head over to Yahoo, go to the comments section on any article (best if it involves one of those foreigner type folks) and you'll quickly realise why.
Surely the collision avoidance (braking) systems being fitted to cars now are far better than just a buzzer that will drive people mad in built up areas.
The car 100 metres (sorry yards) ahead is stationary, brake, stop, avoid, oh god your going to die!. Oh sorry it was in a parking bay on the side of the road.
Response to HP (and others)
as you have been accused of tax avoidance by your very own government, in response to you request for some UK tax refunds, FUCK OFF.
It does seem odd to be going after Apple though, as I'm pretty sure they didn't design the microprocessor in the A7.
Makes no difference who designed the core, they designed and sell the final product for use in their own devices.
Re: They don't even know for sure
If Apple knew about the patent and COULD work around it don't you think they'd have done that already? You're making contradictory arguments.
Why are they contradicting themselves, how about....they could work around it, but thought it easier / cheaper to just ignore the patent and go ahead anyway and worry about the consequences (if any) later.
...thinking the dots on the map represented prime strike targets?
Is it me.....
...or am I just really missing the point of this?
Why would I NOT purchase something online then randomly go into the same shop. Maybe clothes, but surely if I wanted to try them on I'd go to the shop in the first place....and what if it's not in stock?
Or is it like Argos ' ring and reserve? Or like buying online with Toolstation or Screwfix?
Please, someone dumb this down, it may be Monday and all that, as I really can't see the point of this, other than to try and sell you something you didn't want.
Re: Hey, microsoft, I have a serious question!
But they won't let you anywhere near it anyway, as a rabid antiMS person, I'd doubt anyone would trust you not to release the code for the greater good.
We will pay the £10,000....
...just as soon as you send the money for our latest Ponzi scheme, errm sorry Kickstarter investment opportunity.
Re: Just wish
it would knock around 12% of the price too!.
No it wouldn't, not in anyway. These would have to be custom runs, special orders, different from the mass market, ergo, effectively cost more. Same way non-standard colour schemes for cars very often cost more, as they have to set it up, just for that one or 10 off, as opposed to huge batch runs.
Re: Optimal solution?
Surely the optimal solution is to stop having wars?
Sorry, not a financially viable option, do you know how great wars are for the gravy train.
Re: It's even worse than that......
Why do they need to receive updates?
if it's on a Private network (many still use ISDN & dial up analogue lines) you have no need.
I have a XP SP2 machine hooked up to ancient Nortel Meridian. No point patching it, it never touches the network, so it far more secure than ANY internet facing machine, be it Linux, Windows, OSX or Unix.
Cash registers etc.
They will be using XP Embedded and are NOT affected by the desktop EoL:
"Extended support for Windows XP Embedded ends on January 12, 2016." (Wiki)
Windows XP Embedded Service Pack 3 11/14/2008
Support ends 24 months after the next service pack releases or at the end of the product's support lifecycle, whichever comes first. For more information, please see the service pack policy here .
Ignore Jake, most people do, comes across as a 60 year old grey beard with the attitude of a 13 year old.
I saw it once, just seemed like a bunch of ads for average looking games and apps. That was it really.
Re: Why, just Why?
No space in GOTO on a speccy, go sit at the back of the class.
Some please explain to me why you would buy a fake spectrum keyboard, to play emulated games, on a TV that won't look the same, when you can pick one up for about the same price as this fake keyboard?
@ Tom Dial
So you claim pharma's of racketeering, but as GSK alone, spend about $6 BILLION a YEAR on research, if they don't patent it, how the fuck are they supposed to survive, when some dodgy pill factory nicks their formula and sells it for a few pence?
Ban patents, forget expensive innovation.
Re: Rare pragmatic response
Yup then getting people complaining that it doesn't run on their 9 year old P2 with 1gb of RAM.
Re: re: NEVER purchase anything made by HP
Kodak? Good luck on that one. If you see one, it's old stock.
Re: Sure smells like apple innovation in here
Let me do this one again, extreme yes, but it gets the point across to the less educated.
I'm at home and accidental, or through hard work, discover a way to make a home cold fusion reactor for £100, paving the way for cheap energy for everyone.
The prototype will cost £10 million to make, for some reason the bank won't let me lend that much money.
So I send my idea off to robdogbastards & co who think it's a great idea, say thank you very much and go ahead not only make the prototype, but make billions of pounds when it goes into production. However I'm left penniless and suicidal.
Now if I had patented it (this is the point you need to grasp), robdogbastards & co have a choice, they can offer to buy the patents for a hefty sum, or they can go into production, and I sue the living daylights out of them. So in theory, I get my my money.
That's what Patents were invented for.
Google copying Microsoft
Yes, they also can make videos that make you want to vomit.
Re: Enough already.
"Remember when we all dreamed of having head up displays that showed cool stuff, "
Eeerrr no, actually I can't.
They could learn some lessons....
from the Black Country Museum and the Canal Trust, two adjoining, yet separate museums, who advertise and sell tickets for each other, with a simple path between the two.
Re: Is this the same Israeli researchers that seem to be flooding the news with FUD?
Back to you Kermit.....
"but both the mobe-maker and Google determined that the problem lay within Android"
Re: Is this the same Israeli researchers that seem to be flooding the news with FUD?
Would this be the same FUD Samsung and Google have confirmed is an issue?
NatWest to ensure the send out mails correctly.
Reader to ensure that they set up minimum payment as default direct debit, that way you never miss a payment (unless you have no bank funds).
Re: Incoming lawsuit from Canonical?
Yes because OneDrive sounds so similar Ubuntu One it's easy to get the two mixed up, maybe I'll see if my 2 year old kid gets it mixed up, if not then you will clearly know your levels of comprehension.
C'mon, make up your fucking minds people, do you want silly pointless lawsuits or not....it sounds different, get over it.
Rabid Linux down voting expected.
I don't know.....
...£200,000 sounds about right for an original inkjet cartridge these days.
Re: So what you're saying here
You think those are bitcoins you are working on.....meh, that is mealy the cover story.
Re: No announcement of the problem
Maybe they don't have 24/7/365 twitter writers, maybe it was their day off and they were using Facebook instead, or maybe Google+, or even a blog, heck maybe they shared some photo's in Pinterest whilst syncing it with their Flickr accounts ...who knows.
Still glad after 30 minutes your entire would stopped collapsing and you could return to you instant gratification.
" the option to install applications from non signed sources. "?
I guess you mean "installation...other than play store" and by that that you may mean anyone that want to download from say, Amazon?
Re: What ever happened to the old connection options on Android?
Right Click on USB device > Eject Device.
However if you've altered settings / installed device syncing software, you may not get this option.
Re: "impair the quality of internet access services"
Net Neutrality isn't really about if voice or video have bandwidth priority over email, it's all about content of the same type and how it's delivered.
Google (YouTube) say, if you get a stream from YouTube and another from iPlayer, if you give us priority, we'll bung you £50million a year.
Sky Broadband give top priority to any Murdoch owned site over others and even throttle those of rivals.
So it's not about what you speed up / slow down, but WHO you speed up / slow down.
From the article:
"the proposals define 'reasonable traffic management measures' as activity such as the blocking or throttling of communications to combat serious crimes like the distribution of child pornography."
There, not hard.
Re: And end to VOIP?
Go back, read, comprehend. Post....
Oh BTW if you think that you have end to end QoS on the open internet, think again.
Re: Less time for the real thing
Evidence to back that up?
Bearing mind she has been arrested & convicted multiple times before, so no first time offender.
Go here, more up your street.
Interesting that this article doesn't bring up the thorny issue of advertising.....
Already exists.....It's called Channel 4.
Re: How many???
Why? Thousands of stores, each doing thousands of transactions a day + online transactions. Not hard to get that figure.
Re: With that habit, the hospital could have arranged for her a special
Incorrect: From the NHS:
Additionally, a liver transplant will also not be offered if you are:
abusing alcohol – most transplant centres only consider a person for transplant if they have not had alcohol for at least three months
abusing drugs – most transplant centres would only consider a person for transplant if they attend a drug rehabilitation course and remain free from drugs for at least six months (some transplant centres will accept people who are currently taking the heroin substitute methadone)
Hmmm at 1st I'd say WTF, but it was applied for in 1999, about the same time "Wi-Fi" was founded. So yes it well may of been fairly unique back then, but it's so vague, it should of been struck down on that.
Re: Has Simple Air ever actually made anything?
Going by the one page website, no. Troll is the word you are looking for.
Re: Hang on a minute...
It is not just predictive text, it is also allows for error correction and put's the predictions in a separate area, not in an in-line drop down or type ahead.
So despite having a Samsung myself, I think Apple are correct on this one.
So they are charging a fortune...
....for a basic 2 factor authentication? Something many banks and email providers do for free.
You should not be charged this amount of money, just so they can follow a simple procedure.
I help run a small Charity and, bar a few paid employee's, the rest are working for gratis. Doesn't stop us having to raise a few hundred thousand a year for Rent, electric, gas, rates, equipment, rubbish disposal, training, statutory legal obligations and on and on and on.
Oh do shut up and learn about trademarks.
And probably about a million other ones.
