For someone who hates bad design...
...it's odd that his site is so difficult to use and understand what is being presented, especially when you expand some calls... This will be used by nerds only.
Reddit couch potatoes at home should maybe get of the asses
and help... instead of buying pizza für police officers. I'm not sure the first thing on the mind of police officers looking for someone who killed an 8yr old kid and a fellow police officer is not whether they should buy some stuffed crust for their lunch or not.
Also looking at the posts, I find it dubious that any police officer would find reading areddit post easy to follow or useful to do... people were complimenting each other on their hair for crying out loud when they ID themselves in the photos.
Re: golf clap
... don't worry. In a few years there won't be any ubuntu phones or firefox phones.
Normal people -, over 90% of teh market aren't interested in buying a phone because of the OS. They buy it because their friends recommend it, they buy it because of what it does, not what drives it, and they want their phones to look and function like before or like they see on their friend's phone.
Ubuntu will fail because no one but nerds use it, and FireFox will fail because no on is interested in FF except web developers and nerds. Yeah FF may have a huge market share but normal people couldn't care what they use, they use it because it comes with computer (or because somef friend/the company IT admin installed it), and even then if IE is still there they use that... it' not important to most people and most people don't even know what a browser is or what firefox is. They are not going to care if Firefox is the OS of their next phone or go out of their way to buy it, if their phone has it they will use it - till it doesn't work the way their old phone did and then they will take it back to the store.
There will be loads of this happening with these new mobes
You might think the girl was an idiot, but even your beloved ubuntu fails with real people who aren't working in IT. The same will happen to the ubuntu phone and FF phones.
Google said it would not dispute the fine...
... beacause paying their lawyers to appeal would cost them more.
145,000... looks like the googleplex will have to do without a snackbox for a week.
Re: Klingon Vs Welsh
Well, unless all 1000 are on the forbes rich list, I can't imagine that the spending power of the 1000 or so 40yr old vergins who have learnt klingon is greater than that of every welsh speaker.
Also if these virgins are anal enough to have learnt a fictional start trek language, how many are going to be worshipping christ? They are probably all follwers of what ever god klingons follow.
What's next? Shakespear in Romulan? LotR in elvish?
You can get the bible in klingon for kindle
but welsh is an unrecognized language?
I guess it will turn out that one of the boys is the son of the police chief...
Glaring eh? I've been using FF since version 3 and have never ahd need of this glaring ommission... obviously not important, and that's why it wasn't done before.
So basically the push all tge positive comments to the top in an attemp to bury the negative...
... the lives of people in china aren't bad enough... they now have to use Linux. The poor sods
"f privacy loss when you're out in public"
and when people are filming in public without asking the people first use of these glasses can expect do get beaten up and the glasses destroyed.... peple have a right in public space not to be filmed.... expect some serious glass-rage soon - ironically probably posted on youtube foor world and his dog to see.
The outside world is for everyone not just people who want to upload fail films to youtube.
History will repeat itself
... these things are dead before they have even be shipped. It will please ubuntu / linux nerds but they're the only ones who will want it.
Re: Holodecks aren't just about processing power
Ok smarty pants... how are they going to achieve that? Or make it possible for two people in the same room to travel at the same time to opposite parts of the world?
From my understanding oh holodeck technology....
...much of the material in the holodeck is really what it looks like... they use replicator and transporter technology to do that... I can't see that coming anytime soon.
Re: Holodecks aren't just about processing power
Yeah but how do they solve the biggest problem... letting move about in the holodeck like it it is the whole world when it is only the same size as a toilet?
Are are people just going to simulate toilets with their holodecks?
Re: Holodecks aren't just about processing power
No, if intel are making them you'll have to watch a 3d "intel inside" jingle before it starts generating you room... then AV vendors will start paying for intel to but holographic AV crapware in your holodeck... and then everything will turn blue when the american built piece of shit crashes.
Re: a pole?
You seem well versed in the tradional methods ;)
And hell's angels... and Stonecutters.... and The Nohomers... basically anyone who wants to sound more intellectual then they actually are.
Wikipedia is edited by nerds, most of whom haven't any more knowledge on the subject sthey edit then a 'tard.
Their one goal in live seem to be to revert edits made by anypne who isn't an editor.... wikipedia should really redesign the interface if they want anyone to edit it... is there anyone on earth who understands what they see when they view the history for the page?
Re: Having something that sounds like...
Sadly some mobs of working class did just this during the last pedo revelations
the music was just sh!t
Having something that sounds like...
...paedophillia on your phone or tablet is probably not something most people would want... tracks as apps? Tracks should are tracks and played in a music player, they don't need their own app
Shock asset stripper thinks his shares should be worth more!
The writing is on the wall for DELL and other computer builders... more and more people want tablets and smart phones... very view people actually need a laptop or desktop... by the time this asset stripper realises this, he'll be wishing he sold out for Dell's offer now
I missed the announcment that...
...the site was even opened... it doesn't say much for a site if you first hear about it through it's shutting down announcement.
So what exactly did this ex tory mp have to do with the site?
That's the best the medium quality imager can muster?
I'm sure I have seen that comet film in old episodes fo doctor who....
I was expecting something more impressive, like the blue comment in the listing picture :(
Re: "consumers didn't understand touch-based laptops"
Consumers understand touchscreen... what they don't understand is why they are so expensive, or why they should pay hundreds more and have worse specs... apple only got away with that by exploiting idots that think price = quality, and they could only do that by not having cheap good quality hardware in the first place, sadly MS has been helping to flog cheap hardware for decadeds by giving away windows and offering OEMs discounts to bundle windows with their hardware.
Fuck the states
We should only give a shit about what america wants when america starts giving a shit about what we want... and amis can't understand why they are despised and why the world burns their flag
No wonder captain janeway...
I always found it strange that as well as being olympic athletes, starfleet officers are also fluent linguists, quantum theorist, artists, navigators, musicians, theatre actors... and they can all rewrite the starfleet operating system and write computer programs... now we know why ;)
And americans wonder...
...why most of the world thinks they are idiots
They charge too much...
...MS doesn't have the quality perception that makes it worth paying so much for so little.
Youtube is becoming unwatchable
If there not playing the youtube anthem they play audio thta is just as bad.... and now films have a gazillion popups over them tryijng to get you to watch films you don't want to see to increase the uploaders view count, then there are the comments... a prime example of diarrhea that the anus of the internt can produce when you let commenttards air their views plus you need a google account to do it which if you forget to logout lets google track your searches when you go to google.
I don't subscribe because I don'T want agoogle account tracking my searches targeting adds on pages with films plastered with links to the uploaders other films, but if I did wouldn't pay for them - I would just stop using them
If anything fuck5up starwars
it will be either anal fans complaining that "that's not what happened if the last film", or it will be because disney own it... they fuckup everything and their films seldom do well outside of the USA because of their sickening US family political correctness... I'd be more worried about what disney instist happens in the film than the director having once directed a star trek film... on that was successful and appealed to people who wouldn't know if helmsmann pressed the greenbutton to go to warp in episode #34 or the red one, and whether it was the same red or green button that he pressed in the film.
Why is it that...
...american gun nuts want to shoot guns and kill people who threaten the USA but very few sign up... and the ones that do soon start crying that they shouldn't get involved... because it hurts when they get shot.... and that they (the troops) should be brought back to the USA.... where guns don't hurt people.
hmm... "the only way to stop a bad man with a gun is agood man with a gun"... so what happened in 'nam? Iraq? Afganistan? Were all the US soldiers bad people?
but why are they paying pb....
...when youporn is free?
This didn't need doing...
...everyone knows why female characters wear less clothes. It's because the graphics are created by male 30 something vergin nerds who believe womeon would have worn chainmails bekinis in the middle ages had they been allowed to have fought. You just need to look at the desktop wallpaper of gamers/net admins and the like to see what they think of women. I haven't yet seen asysadmins desktop that doesn't have a picture of woman wearing a bikini while shooting guns. Nerd desktops are no different than mechanics wall calendars. These are the people making and playing the games, it's no wonder that the women in the game look like they do...
Re: And this is the problem,
I don't know what version of windows 8 you tried but I find the metro interface great, an dthe desktop too, I have no problem using both and before you wet yourself with the deslusion that I don't use it for real work, I do.
I'd like to see....
...how responsive and snappy their html 5 site would be if they actually had to get their data from the same source as the app and take into account all the things the app does. The people at facebook have about a billion users, I'm sure there no how to make html 5 apps,and there are reasons why they couldn't get there html 5 app to work the way the fasterbook does.
People here who think that facebook doesn't know how to write an html5 app should first try and make one under the constraints, restrictions and requirements that sencha didn't need to work under.
ExtJs sucks balls compared to jquery and the documentation is shite. Instead of claiming to know more about app development than facebook they should concentrate on improving their own stuff... banning that self righteous anal arse user that goes by the name of "Animal" from their offical foruns might be a good start to actually getting people to bother learning extjs
... tha someone who works for the organisation Anonymous gets caught by being identified by his handle and social networking presence.
Why do all govenment websites...
...look like they were made in 1999?
It doesn't work because some dick in government contacted it out to their sister's husband's brother's one-man IT company (based in the backroom of the 2nd house) instead of finding a professional company to do it.
I'm a filer
I hat a full inbox and have loads of folders. I dislike tagging and have never had a problem deciding which folder to filter something into.
My boss is a piler, his gmail inbox has 9000+ unread emails in it, he never deletes anything. I delete stuff all the time, and I get about 10 emails a day on a busy day. I find it funny that people brag about getting hundreds each day and how many gigabyte of mails they have archived.... you knwo your a nerd if you even think about how much email you have archived.
Just don't use it, I don't. Why waste time at that shit site? If you can't meet with the people you know or ro scared of long distance calling costs to phone, they aren't your friend.
...he is wanted for installing crapware on newly purchased computers
