Re: patents are for satan worshippers

So Cancer didn't exist before "thousands" of nukes were exploded.

Re: patents are for satan worshippers
Well done, never seen someone so ignorant of the real world in my life (at let's face it, there's a lot of competition on here).
Let take someone like GSK.
Their annual research budget is in the region of £4-5billion, not £4-5, or £4-5000 but £4-5 BILLION (a bigger budget than most nations as a whole spend on R&D)
Now scrap all the patents as some retard may think is a great plan.
So, for example the have spent £20billion on a cure for cancer over several years, and release a very expensive drug (even if they sold it for as little as £100 each they would never make the money back).
However little factory in Pakistan or China, decides to clone it and as they have spent FA on R&D can sell it for £10 a pill, pretty much stopping all sales of GSK's product.
So do tell, why on earth would someone like GSK spend billions on a product, when they know it will most likely put them out of business? As a result, we don't get the cures for cancer, HIV, or the next Flu epidemic.
So come on Genius, without patents, fix this issue?
Re: Said it before
Oh you are really total stupid or ignorant?
"Nobody is going to die because there is no FRAND in IP either. but it is there isn't "
So next time you call the emergency service for a heart attack victim using your mobile phone, connecting to the Mobile carriers network, which in turn may pass through 2 or 3 other carriers network, received by the operator, typed on a computer,sent over the network to the Ambulance station, who radio the crew, who jump in the ambulance and navigate to the scene to find you giving hearth resuscitation to "Staying Alive" on your cd player, which you learnt of your Digital TV.
Thank goodness there are no devices using FRAND in that little set up.
Free from grubbyment control?
Cough Cough .xxx domain anyone?
"...Crawford also pointed out that the United States was not the only government to oppose the .xxx domain. ICANN also received objections from Australia, Brazil, and several other countries."
Nothing to stop other carriers installing their own lines and BT have never had a monopoly on fibre, in fact they are helping break Virgins.

"The tramp: that's what he'll be when they let him out."
Except for the $200million in an offshore account they don't know about .
Re: But what about muh socialism?
"They buy stuff on which there is VAT"
No they don't, they are business.
"They buy petrol on which there is excise tax"
And claim it back as an expense (so a loss)
"Pretty sure their financial transactions are taxed, too."
Yes at other county's rates
...we'll point out that the multi billion $ failed to listen to a troll with a chip on his shoulder.
I'm sure they will listen to your far better design solutions.
I own no Apple gear, so can't put me in the fanbouy pigeon hole and as for:
Did you? Did you really laugh loudly? If so, maybe you should seek medical help, not just for your anger issue, but your inability to constrain yourself to inner thought.
The question is...
..will She Lose Her Love To a Starship Trooper?
Kids ask your dad.
"will allow the Nexus 7 to play host to multiple user accounts,"
Welcome to the 20th Century.
Never got why you can't do this on any of these things.
I heard a constant whine in the corner...
...which confused me as I don't have Virgin.
Then I realised it was the Wife.
Hey, someone had to.
Have we turned into 4chan/b on here?
Sound like a bunch of ill eductated morons in here.
Let's but my position 1st>
1. I'm an Atheist.
2 My wife is Catholic
3 One bridesmaid at our wedding was Hindu
4 Last week I attended a sheikh and Hindu Wedding
5 One of my wife's best friends is Muslim.
6 I am white.
Yet somehow, unlike a bunch of ignorant morons on this forum, I can magically distinguish between a bunch of self centred idiots pushing their own agenda's using religion as an excuse, be they Muslims or Christians and before you get the usual crap about Muslims be more violent, do a bit of history and look up the likes of the Crusades, Spanish Inquisition, Witch burning and the Puritans.
Every Muslim I know are disgusted by the shooting of the girl in Pakistan and as for getting married at ten, this is CULTURAL thing, not a religious thing.
So stop reading the shit on the web and go and meet people of other religions and you may learn a fucking thing or two.

Re: Sony Cdp101
From memory Sony CD players could hook directly into a Sony "Hi-Fi". I guess it was some sort of propriety digital connector, I think it meant the remote worked for the "Hi-Fi" and CD player. But it was I long time ago, so I may be wrong, but it certainly hooked into the Hi-Fi
PS <Snob Value> I bought Dire Straights on day of release. £17.99 and still have it, may play it for a toast to the CD player.
However as for lasting a squillion years as it was implied, I've noticed many of my earlier ones, the lacquer has started to yellow slightly and some really struggled to play on some devices a couple of years ago when I ripped my entire collection. Can I have a refund please?
Re: 3% VAT
"The VAT on ebooks and not on books issue is annoying though."
Going by the current state of European economies, which is the more likely to happen to balance the situation
a) Remove VAT on eBooks
b) Put VAT on "real" books.
Lost me there....
freetard poster child..."some tracks were given away for free, $5 bought you a compressed digital version, while vinyl options ranged from $10 to $300."
Since when has $5 - $300 been free?
In summary this entire slap-dash article was, one man/band decided not to resign to a label and go it alone, it didn't work out, so have gone back to a label.
As for the last bit... huge artist on little label, distributed by mega corp done good.
You mean like JM Jarre and Depeche Mode decades ago? A huge amount of indie labels use majors to distribute through, it's nothing new.
but there's an app for for men's stuff coming next
Is Item black, blue or brown?
If=Yes, then go to every clothing shop in UK
If =No GOTO TK Max
....for the Worcestershire force in discovering Earth's satellite.....
I take it you mean West Mercia, being as there is no such thing as the Worcestershire police force.
Well done for getting down voted for actually being correct.
Still this days the comments are so dull
Patents = Bad
Copyright = Bad
Micro$haft (or other variants) = Bad
Apple are either evil or the best thing ever
Android is either evil or the best thing ever
Linux = The best thing ever, suited for every job and is completely immune to any sort of attack.
Any idea what Tech websites these days have a level of intellect about them?
What? That makes no sense!
A closer analogy would be:
Someone was seen speeding in a car with the same registration plates as yourson this road at 22:03 on the 3rd of September 2012.
However they don't know who was actually driving.
In your analogy, it's up to the owner of the car to say who was driving, otherwise they are liable.
Way to generate comments on the reg...
1. Publish misleading headline.
Microsoft claims Windows Server 2012 is 'first cloud OS'
" is dubbing the company's first "cloud OS."
Companies First != First
Still we all know people on here read the headline and go into meltdown.
"What this means is that, on average, if AV doesn’t detect a piece of malware almost immediately, it likely never would."
"Stuxnet and its siblings have proved pretty conclusively that the entire security industry can completely miss a significant threat for extended periods,"
Don't these statements blatantly contradict each other?
The days where only a dedicated offlicense could sell cheap plonk, rather than every supermarket in the country.
Don't forget petrol stations, cornershops, chip shops, in fact pretty much anywhere.
And why not raise the offence for selling to under age kids?
Sell and lose license for 1 month, 3 times and iyour banned for a year. Far more effective than a fine. How can they protect themselves, be like when I was in the states, unless your clearly over about 50, you get id'd. They'll be a lot of bitching and moaning for a few months, but then if everywhere does it, it becomes the norm and people accept it.
Re: It's tyre not tire
But on the RIGHT side of the pond it is.
A robot getting blown up means it wasn't someone's son instead.
Tell that to the ten's of thousands of civilians killed on the "enemies" side.
I admire this guys stance, but to many racists, xenophobes and war mongers in this world for him to be listened to.
At the end of the day, war makes good business sense and that's what count in this shallow world of ours, not people, but money, greed and power.
Why don't radio hams just use IM instead?
We should of bought it from America...
"500 developers who've topped a million downloads from its own App Store, and three who've hit 100 million"
And between them made 97p
Anon in something worthwhile shocker....
I pumped the Volleyball (proper not beach) out via my cheap tablet to my TV resulting in several advantages.
1. I could watch the Volleyball
2. It was much better quality than my built in SD, despite my 3mb max speed.
3. Most had no commentary.
1. unfortunately when they did have commentary it was painful. As it's a bit of a minority sport I understand they have to explain some of the (simple) rules, but did they have point out every ruddy move? At least get the technical terms right, it's a spike not a smash (don't even get me started on calling tips, spikes)
2. The catch-up kept telling me to update my software and sending me to Apple for help. It's a ruddy andriod tab. Yet iPlayer directly works fine.
But overall, brilliant job.
Very easy rule to follow
Twitter / Facebook / other "social" site are public places, so if you not willing to say it in a public place, then chances are you shouldn't say it on there.
A better rule would to not allow sports people (especially overpaid sleb's) access to these sites.
Re: I wonder what 'Online' means in the context of the ruling
Under s1 of the Malicious Communications Act 1998
It is an offence to send an indecent, offensive or threatening letter or other form of electronic communication to another person.
Under s43 of the Telecommunications Act 1984 and Section 92 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994
A person who makes indecent, offensive or threatening calls to another via the telephone system network is guilty of an offence.
Funny thing this Internet, you can sometimes find the answers you are looking for by searching using a few key words.
Re: might have some benefits
I doubt it. They'll just pass the costs onto you.
Re: Why buy it
Because the DC is under their control, will be cheaper in the long run, *should* have better DR, upgrades are easier, onsite maintenance (should as replacing HDD's) is easier, backups are easier.
In fact pretty much the same reasons ever other large business in the world centralise their servers.
Sheez really need to break out the tin foil hats around here.
Trust me, far easier to tap into your standard phone lines than Skype, yet we seem to have been happy to use them for the last 100 years or so.
Re: Short termism?
Under UK law you can claim for a reasonable time for it to be "fit for purpose". Yes it's vague, but for example, if you paid 99p for a phone, don't expect a lot of recourse, but £500 for a phone, you could easily argue it should last much longer.
Here how most businesses work.
Customer: Hello, I want a refund / partial refund.
Customer: Can I have the name of your legal department, I wish to send a claim for compensation from the small claims court (it's not actually called that BTW).
Company: <insert bullshit>
Customer: Send of form to company:
Receive offer in post.
Done it half a dozen times, never had to go to court once. Think about it, are they really going to send a £100 / hour lawyer to fight a £100 claim.
Computer User - Non Technical
Says it all, 15 years in IT and wondering how the bloody hell I got here.
Treat the other person like an idiot or just f'ing lazy (especially sales) and 99% of the time you'll be right.
Seriously I get calls like, can I do X, can I do Y.
Here's a radical idea, bear with me on this.
If it says you do not have permission, then then no you don't. If it lets you. Then yes you do.
