“ARM sold 9 billion units in 2012"
Being picky, but ARM sold F.A. units; they are an I.P. company, not a manufacturer.

"That's the printer's job, not mine."
No it fucking not.
A printers job is to reproduce the original as closely as possible. If your proof is shit, so will you print.
Was a printer for a decade and had my fair share of dickhead designers to deal with.
Re: The government itself is guilty anyway
I stand corrected.
However they are certainly not premium rate numbers by any stretch of the imagination.
We need a humble pie icon!

"99% of the time it's better in Opera. The only people that couldn't possibly like Opera are those too closed minded to try it"
or those behind a proxy that want to use wildcard exceptions. Yes this fucking shitty bug that's been around for years (well it was a few months ago at which point I've given up trying to use it). Seemed they could never be arsed to fix it, so not fit for a lot of corporate use.

Re: And Yet
Lars, a little education goes a long way and by education, i.e. don't class reading the Daily Heil or Fox "if you are not white and own a gun you are a commie terrorist" New as education.
Welcome to the comments section of the Daily Mail, knee jerk reactions without actually readin past the 1st paragraph.
The concept is the ability to sell to another person (everyone is saying this is Amazon selling the items, but it will actually be end users via Amazon) and make to sure the original is destroyed.
So for a REAL world analogy, you have a CD (yes physical). and you sell it in on eBay. eBay takes a cut, you sell the original and the original is "deleted" i.e. you no longer own it.
If you rip it / copy it, that's not the same and not what they are trying to do, this is merely to pass an original copy to another person.
Should it be patented, well thats another arguement, but please before the rants, understand the concept.
I'm off to Wired, t's getting more like the Daily Star each day around here.
Ok I knew I heard this before
Ignoring the fact the Beeb reported this 2 days ago...
Similar research from quite a few years back, although not quite the same.

Re: "illicit competition violates the American sense of fair play"
I pee'd myself a little.....
How are those import restrictions going then?
Citrus fruit from Argentina, steel from India and Italy, Car parts from China and on and on...
How's the WTO case about external hosted gambling sites going guys?
Yup many of the other parties involved are also guilty of there own trade fixing, but don't pretend that you play fair and don't pretend that the US are involved in Industrial espionage and dirty tricks.
So stop locking people up without trial, torturing people and pretending it's not actually proper torture, lift all your trade restrictions, stop using spies (including spy satellites), blowing people up in other countries that have FA to do with "war on terror" and then, and only then, claim the holier than thou crown, but until then STFU.
Re: Ah the Woolworths syndrone....
Followed, read and understood the link. An internal memo, went to another internally. Nothing showing it went externally, from the evidence, it went to Ballamer, then what?
Also check the fucking dates. Memo's & accusations 2000 / 2001? Story 2002.
What has this to do with Netbooks?
Oh c'mon, we're all going to miss going in, listening to some shite death metal blasting over the speakers, trying to guess which category your artist is this week, paying £17.99 for a CD because it's non-chart, waiting 10 minutes to be served by some collage student in aforementioned death metal t-shirt, then going home and breaking the CD case trying to get the f'ing security tag and shrink wrap off.
How I do much that wonderful experience.
.if you'll excuse the pun. What about the large percentage of us who already have to wear glasses?
I thought the same, to lazy to do a proper search but..
"According to the Vision Council of America, approximately 75% of adults use some sort of vision correction. About 64% of them wear eyeglasses, and about 11% wear contact lenses, either exclusively, or with glasses"
I'll fix the quote...

"Hey, buy a house. It's only got one bedroom and the price is the same as a house with FOUR bedrooms, but hey, you can build an extension!"
I agree,lets you your brilliant analogy, one in fact true to my actual house buying (not all of us live at home with mummy)
You can have your big house (tablet with storage) in a shit area (Andriod); or a smaller house (Tablet with less storage) in a nice area (Windows). You can upgrade your house, but you can't move.
See even your own stupid analogies are full as backward as your thinking.
Re: UK users?
Well done Eadon, you got the price right this time, still missed out the bit where I pointed out the utter failure of another City to roll it out.
6/10 for effort.
Well who's the prat that can't read? They've rolled out the update to try and fix an OLD issue.
Unless you happen to search 3 months after it's released "Is there an issue if I update my phone to IOS where my wifi gets greyed out?", they may be completely unaware. I know if I update a device months after release I don't spend night after night panicking something might go wrong.
Out of X million sold, seems a few hundred may have this issue.
And I don't even have an iPhone (or any Apple devices), nor am I likely to buy any, so I'm not even slightly biased

We're still waiting for the independent citation for this "fact" you keep banding about.

"how many times have I correctly told you that AV software doesn't work"
So no anti virus software has ever picked up any malware?
Good, on that basis everyone should remove it immediately, as you say it's not needed, and there have NEVER been any detections, ever!
I feel much safer.
Next week folks, remove seatbelts, air-bags and crumple zones from your cars as not crashing is the best method of defence.
The great thing about standards...
...is that there are so many of them.
Re: Fascism / Communism
Odd, where does it mention the Government ANYWHERE in this article?
You do know courts != government don't you? In fact they often keep government in check.
"Twitter said it obeyed the laws of the countries it operates in, but insisted that only a US judge could order it to squeal."
Ok, lets take this apart:
If a court of law in a country orders you to hand the information and you fail to do so (saying only US courts can), then you are in contempt of court, which is an offence, ergo, you are not "obeying the laws of the country".
So let me amend.
"Twitter said it obeyed the laws of the countries it operates in, except where it suits us for either financial or propaganda purposes.
Re: Accounting Tricks
God you really are prick Eadon.
Windows doing fine thank you very much, but business not so well?
Well as Server 2012 is pretty new, Lync 2013 has just been released and Office 2013 is due, you'll see the business department picking up over the next half.
Tou may be able to get 2010 the upgrade to 2013 for free (yes Eadon upgrade for FREE), many will still wait as they won't want to do a double roll out.
Oh an Munich was 11 MILLION you prat..
Oh and on the flip side, let's be balanced after all.
"Munich's experience sharply contrasts with that of Freiburg, another German city that ventured down the open source path. Last week its city council decided to dump a combination of an outdated version of OpenOffice and Microsoft Office 2000 and switch to Microsoft Office 2010.
Compatibility problems and underperforming spreadsheet and presentation programs in the open source office suite aggravated and frustrated employees left the council's hopes for OpenOffice unfulfilled, it said. These were important reasons to contemplate Microsoft Office, which was the only viable option, the council said."
I'm in shock!
Someone actually uses Google+ by choice!
..HP, IBM, Cisco et al will bung a few quid to the US congress and magically these servers will be a national security threat, the the other sheep nations will follow suit, blindly following their lead, without a shred of evidence to back this up.
Re: Simpler option...
...but a stupid one.
Take you are aware very few businesses make any profit for the first few years (maybe as long as 5 years), of course you are, because you've done some research on the subject before posting?
So whack on a turnover tax and 99% of those would die in the within first year.
An example of why the High Street / Malls are dying
On Sunday night.
I ordered 2 books.
Transferred money into my kids savings accounts.
Booked a weekend break for the family
Ordered a part for a washing machine.
Or I could of....
Waited to Monday lunchtime go to a repair shop for the washing machine part (who would of ordered it from that same company)
On Tuesday lunchtime go to a branch to transfer money.
On Wednesday lunchtime booked the holiday.
On Saturday bought the books (provided they were in stock)
A week later, pick up half the stuff I couldn't get the first week.
All of which would of cost me twice the price.
This is the real reason it's keeling over, not the lack of stupid free wifi offers.

Re: maybe firefox should follow suit?
Don't matter how large your screen is, it's the resolution.
A 150" screen at 1366x768 is the same as a 17" at 1366*768.
"but this forum doesn't email me every 2 days to ask why I haven't been on the forum. "

Search for Pico ITX and thou shall find (been around a lot longer than the Pi), but do cost more.
kicking VoIP and Skype.....maybe using email address like Apple do.
Wow if there was only some sort of Session Initiation Protocol using a standard codec,bit like G711 that could connect to some sort address like firstname.lastname@example.org
Luckily seems Apple got there 1st with WebRTC following close behind.

Re: Win-8 is Hideous
I have no idea who would want to own a computer (of whatever form) with such a ghastly UI.
I agree, Ubuntu with unity is butt fuck ugly.
Re: What exactly is good about it?
Yet the Metro & Maestro was very popular and they were shit as well.
Excellent, can I go home now as I no longer can do my job.
Re: Does it work on Linux?
Well if you're visiting websites on a web server with Java enabled in the browser, then you should be taken out and beaten with a ferret until you are very sore indeed.
Time to leave, but where...Gah!
been with them from pretty much the day they launched by us, 100% uptime, never had to phone up for any issues, never, not once!
Sky / Virgin and several others charge almost triple the price for adsl where I live, Orange are shit (sued them for failure to deliver service), just leaves BT really: <Insert Deity> help me!
The issue isn't really the plugin, it's the f'ing 8.1mb file size to see a 2 page document becuase some numpty has directly copied a photo from their camera in it.
Does this get over that?
Re: Feed the children Microsoft crack whilst young....
I agree, teach them using Open Office and Linux, then when they hit the real world where 99% of businesses use MS Office they will be as useless at that, as many other things you teach them in school.
This Mr Teacher is what happens when people live in the academic world and not the business world, they live in a fantasy utopia that lives in the land of theory and ideal scenarios and not reality.
Don't worry happens at universities as well, if not more.
I'm happy for them to have a mix to open their eyes, but to exclude MS completely is just a stupid, stupid move.
