Can someone just clarify US Law....

..this was the property of the Casino.

The casino thought something odd was going on, therefore invited the police into the property.

Do you actually need a warrant in this case?

Re: Funny...

Personally 95% of my clothes don't have stains. I've learnt to eat and drink.

But do you need the whole scoop, even with 2 young kids in toe, you find that it's easy to use a 1/4 the amount in most case. yes if the spag bol has decided that it's natural home is the school shirt, your going to need more, but day to day stuff, it's fine to use much, much less than recommended for most people.

That's why most eco washes are near the 3 hour mark now, it's more about soaking than washing.

Ah Dave again.

Book2park CEO Anna Infante said it recently had security experts remove a malicious file.

So 1 of 2 things then?

I called Dave, that bloke that helped me get Angry Birds on my iPad and he ran an antivirus program and found a file, so we knew we were OK

Or most likely.

I've find some malware, removed it and I suggest we do a complete and full audit using a 3rd party that specialises in this. You should contact the customers to let them know so they can look out for an suspicious transactions.

So you found the malware and removed it. Ok great. la la la laaaa

"but here in Germany it would be an offence to publish a photo, let alone a nude photo of somebody without their express permission."

It would be impossible to publish a picture of say a public protest, a football match or a concert.

Can you explain how permission was sought for everyone in this picture?

People are missing the point...

...you wouldn't buy a 365 JUST to use with a tablet, it would complement your other kit. So in a meeting, do you presentation from Powerpoint, scribble some notes in One note on the train, email a word document etc, all sync'd to 365. Then go back to the office / home and jump on your laptop and tidy it all up and create the next batch of stuff you need.

If was a mobile worker I could see the real benefit, but I'm not, so don't really have the need, but I can still see where it comes from.

I read it as free to install for the 1st year, i.e.. if you are an early adopter, it's free. If I recall they did a version of Win7 for the first 6 months or year that was heavily discounted.

Re: It's the app store, stupid

Good Point:

I hear-by ask that Microsoft start using Adobe and Java to push out their browser and having it automatically be installed and set as default browser every-time the aforementioned programmes do their updates.

Wouldn't surprise me 50% of the Chrome install base was done this way. My parents have chrome installed and they have no idea what it is.

Hi I see you are using a MS browser, it may be a modern one fully capable of rendering the page correctly if left untouched, but the web dev is still making it render as a ie6 / ie7 compliant, therefore it will be completely screwed.

They don't care much about initial sales cost, the money these days is in after market sales. So even if they make a small loss, if someone buys an app or buys some music, they start to claw it back.
