So why the big Apple sign outside the store?
I'm still going to call it Windows 8.2...
Nothing wrong with Windows 8.1 that a few hours practice and a mind willing to accept change can't fix.
Could it really be businesses don't want to spend money on training their Minions considering they got that free before when personal would train themselves at home?
Course not..... :)
Blind Cave fish?
No eyes. Plenty if Genes.
Are IOS developers gonna learn how to spell?
Re: Now you can lose 8TB of data in one shot instead of just 4!
Let me guess, you bought your domestic Seagate drives at the lowest price you could find and discovered they got shipped to you in bubble wrap bags?
And you have the cheek to blame Seagate?
Owner of the camera obviously.
Freelancers often take photos by leaving a camera on a tree overnight. Does that image belong to the passing animal? Course not. Belongs to the owner of Camera.
If a person is hired to do a photo then there will be contract between him and say the BBC.
So all images become the copyright of the BBC as agreed by that contract.
If the BBC only ask for limited use of said image, then copyright remains with owner of material.
Surely the video was published on YouTube?
Therefore YouTube is guilty and if you share links to that page, you're guilty of promoting it?
What's the problem?
Haven't we been here before?
I've not seen this video and quite honesty I don't want to.
A good while ago there was reports of an American getting beheaded on video and I stupidly thought I'd try to find it. Well I did and I had nightmares for days afterwards. My fault I know. But who cares what accent these murderers have. Just stop them OK?
Is there any other kind?
Re: is that what ElReg sarcasm looks like
Several years ago scientists invented a glass coating that doesn't reflect light.
Saw it on a BBC programme about the London Natural History Museum.
You shine a light on it and it only shows you what is underneath it.
Odd how this site and others completely missed it.
Several companies are bringing out products that use it.
Why not look at the 400GB SSD RAM sticks?
Kate should put up some Infrared lights on stage. The audience won't see them. But all the cameras will! :)
Should have read the Battery review Web site
5Gbits? Only 5 measly Gbits...?
Slow day or drop in Hits hmm?
Re: New batteries...
That's no big deal. They swapped Lead acid batteries for Lithium.
5 years ago we were promised x4 capacity batteries using nanotechnology. Where did they go?
Norwegian blue dinosaur anyone?
Time to re-run that campaign to get Mr Spielberg to make T-Rex fluffy! It's only good science!
Time to dig out my Valves. I knew there was a reason why I kept them.
When I got my Internet account found YouTube Web site was blocked.
Well that was that. Turn off my ISP filters. Why bother with this kind of lunacy?
Goodness. My phone runs faster and has more RAM!
Re: Composite Output
Maplin sells two types of 3.5mm leads with 3x RCA. A Sony or Panasonic lead. So at least 2 standards. :)
Re: What IS Flash?
Do people seriously still use Adobe PDF Reader!
Let me reexamine the year on my calendar...
Let me guess....
It's 10Gbps over 30 metres of straight wire with no corners or other cables next to it...
Yeah, that'll work in the real world...
Real people don't know how to use Windows.
They just want to know where to wave the mouse, when to click and which mouse button to click.
The other 1% (ie us) know how to work our computers regardless of which OS it runs.
To tell if your workforce is ready for Windows 8, try this. Move the taskbar to the right-hand side and see how long it takes for them to figure it out.
If its more than 10secs. They're not ready.
If it takes you more than 5secs to figure out how to do this. You're just playing at IT.
You can make a diode out of a piece of coal and a wire.
Colditz prisoners did this during WWII.
So the hundred of thousands of species of animals, plants, fungi and insects just came from where exactly?
Well, maybe then you should review their products in future?
If you're sensible, you add a OpenDNS and a Google DNS line to your router...
Let's see how long Samsung takes to fix it's Galaxy S3 Flagship phone of 2012 which sold millions!
We're counting Samsung...
They've been saying that for the last 10 years....
Re: Suitable punishment for him
Make it an Acoustic modem and you'll have a deal! :)
Well, he'll now have his pick of jobs for life.
Re: How the sale went down
Well, you'd cry otherwise wouldn't you? :)
Re: Ubiquitous passwords
Last shop that did that was Tandy.
They got very upset if you refused. Needless to say they are no longer trading...
I suspect Foot Warriors from Brontitall...Hopefully just an advanced scouting party?
Do players still play the Mod?
It's so full of hackers and cheats, it's not worth playing.
Can I just get a phone or Tablet with enough RAM to deliver consistent performance of my current quad core? 1GB isn't enough by a long shot. :(
Google is trying to do the right thing.
Software and 3rd party developers would enjoy a far superior and cheaper platform. Users would be able to pick up any Tablet and just use it.
Hardware Tablet developers would just have to concentrate on hardware design and not be bogged down by software fluff that may impress a corporate CEO but means nothing to their customers.
Let's get back to hardware reliability and leave the software fixing to the people who care about fixing that.
Surely everyone benefits?
Due to the shape of the loch (you don't call them lakes laddie!) it is common to see dark standing waves on the surface long after the ferry and other leisure boats have gone past. The water is always murky as its full of peat particles and floating trees that have been blown down in storms.
So don't get too excited yer eejits!
Nice to know that my new phone that I'll buy next year is already obsolete before it's launched yet.
Such is progress. :)
Just need to encrypted the Syslogs next. Oh they can't...
Just rename this company to 'kaled' and we have the birth of something sinister? :)
Re: Is Windows 8 fundamentally broken?
Windows 8 is just fine. I don't know what all the fuss is about.
I've used computers since the Cambridge Mk 14. So I'm well used to using all OSs across all hardware patterns.
People would tell me how wonderful XP was. But it had such a horrible USB stack. I lost count of times it would mess up and don't get me started on its lanmanger system. Awful!
Windows 7 was a welcome improvement. But Windows 8 is even better.
People just need to get their 'finger' out and adapt.
(Oh and read up on how to use it might not be a bad idea?)
Re: This issue occurs because ..
Errr...Windows 7 is a version of Windows NT. Most are.
Cute. But it's sorted which is the main thing.
I remember when XP came out. Someone discovered a HTML help file bug within a month of the launch that could nuke your computer if they so desired.
So people, don't condemn a OS for bugs. Or we'd still be using Windows 3.1
Re: Good for the *whole* web
And just how do we get this improved encoder into every graphic program?
Re: Low bat
Maybe they run off 6x D cell Duracell Ultras with a free bunny thrown in?
