Are you REALLY that stupid? Do you have a bloody clue about immigration other than the shit UKIP and the Daily Wail print?

Say you are, I don't know, a member of the opposition in some war torn country run by a depot dictator. Your husband has been hacked to death and your daughters raped

Do you:

a) Apply to the same government in order to get a travel visa, then wait 6 months for the UK to respond to see if you are allowed in finally get on a plane, which of course has the same security teams that ruined your life.

or

b) get the fuck out of there.

Re: Good or Bad?

So what do you propose? They should get £50 per chip produced? Does the same go for Qualcom, Samsung, Intel,Ericson,Texas Instruments etc. Your £500 phone now costs £50,000

At then end of the day, it's only a single component of a much larger package, Yes it's important, but so are most of he other bits that others have had to design and get to work together.

"when my infant son Veer fell off a bed in a hotel in rural Vermont, and I was concerned that he might have a concussion."

So what you do, if you think you child has a potentially life threatening condition, is to look it up on Google and see that it's ok, he's only got malaria or find that "Little Joey" fell off the bed because it turned out he had a brain tumour or somfink and that like, 300 hundred of her mates yeah, just like, thought Urrrggh it was part of being like a toddler like.

Hint: if you think you child has a potentially life threatening condition, go to a fucking hospital or at least a doctors.

Re: Wait,,,,What?

Yes, but you missed off "Zero known users. Zero known apps

Facebook, twitter, instagram, candycrush, LinkedIn...of course many of those are happpily bundled in standard the People App...well that's 90% of user needs fulfilled.

Here blows Google / Apple maps out of the water. Lumia cameras better than anything Apple and Samsung offer for even close the price (the app itself is way better). Mixradio another great one, oh of course Cortana.

Still have to use my Samsung from work for my gas / electric readings, so it does have some use.

Why would you want to drop a tool pallets onto a small touch screen when you could by a full blown touch screen for a fraction of the price?

As for things like MIDI, part of the issue is, especially Android (yes fandroids this is a fact) is that Apple have the edge as they control the hardware and software, so the timings can be tightly controlled and given a known config. MS could do this to an extent, as most phones sold are the Lumia's but for music control, Android is out.

Re: Really...

Any privacy legislation will be as ineffectual as the UN.

To right, the 10's of millions of refugees helped by UNHCR would agree, as would the millions of kids helped by UNICEF, and what about all those people helped by UNAIDS, pretty sure they would also agree, lest we forget the millions of people helped by food aid? Of course the ITU have made it impossible to make even a single call between Europe and America, let alone get hold of someone in Japan.
