"ongoing, evolving, useful, and pleasurable experience "
you're in marketing, right?
"David Pogue cannot tie own shoelaces".
I mean, seriously. This is point&drool stuff. There's a special needs school down the road from me where the kids made an app using this as part of a charity challenge.
"police should shoot"
or Daily Mail reader. You decide.
"has recalled Parliament after three nights of rioting"
I always wondered what MPs did on their holidays.
my Android tablet gets the same issues.
Oh god, you still didn't read.
1. Compromise one client Mac.
2. OSX Server pushes updates.
3. Compromised Mac steals credentials from stupid insecure update protocol.
4. Compromised Mac pushes compromised updates using stolen Server credentials.
5. All other Macs blithely accept this.
Just stop defending Apple no matter what. Everyone is wrong sometimes.
The software. Not the hardware. You don't have "iPod software like the rest of the world", you have the disgusting bloated scumware known as "iTunes" which is, incidentally, the major reason why I will never buy an iProduct.
Shirley shome mishtake?
"You got a hat store for a hat"
Actually, that makes a scary amount of sense.
Nobody likes supermarkets.
that 2012 sees not only the end of the world (alleged) but also Windows 8 on ARM and Intel, which has, er all the software. All the software ever.
If your "apps" argument is correct, that will be the end of any other tablet OS. Let's wait and see.
I think you nailed it.
If you ever find there's a massive budget pouring out of IT and nobody will say where it's going, SAP. It's always fucking SAP. Which is, as everyone who had ever actually tried to work with it knows, shit anyway.
SAP salesmen must have the best cocaine and hookers on the planet. There is literally no other explanation.
The EU...subsidises farmers.
Not really. Not effectively, anyway.
On the continent, it subsidises small farmers and co-operatives to maintain a standard of living and the kind of countryside that proves so popular in, for example, Provence and Tuscany.
In the UK, it subsidises giant factory farms (because these were the emphasis of Government in the post-war austerity years and now are the only farmers rich enough to matter to politicians) and provides grants in order to help City bankers turn small Provence/Tuscany type farms into golf courses and leisure spas. It also levies fines where ancient forgotten footpaths are not disabled-friendly and, should you happen to produce enough milk to make a profit, it fines you double that profit.
Enough. It's bringing my famer's son side again, and the associated massive risk of suicide.
Oh, I dunno
There's quite a lot of evidence.
I fully believe that Uncle Rupe didn't know. He's a businessman who specialises in growth, mergers and acquisitions. He doesn't get involved in celeb news stories (although remarkably, his papers all seem to read his mind on political stories).
Little Jim, however, is the one who has to sign the cheques for the News of the World which means either he does a shit job or he knew.
"Anyone know if"
"Anyone know if multi-tasking, copy and paste or user-ringtones are available in Windows 7 Mobile yet, or is it still pretending to be a really bad iOS from 2006?"
Yes, all three are available.
Now fuck off.
Oh, I don't know
Berlusconi is probably kicking himself right now.
I do not think this word means what you think it means.
Hint: "little grandmother".
Not my experience
Hotmail used to be an absolute nightmare to control UNTIL MS bought it and tried to make it respectable. Their admins not only acknowledge spam reports from corporates but also always gave me nice blow-by-blow update mails on the steps they were taking to deal with it. Usually, only the first mail was automated; the others came from guys doing jobs.
Which is kind of nice.
Bound by an O2 contract, no signal in the house, O2 won't do femto.
This means I can go buy a Voda femto, hack it and all our problems are solved!
"The fact that some contractors spend years and years in a single place is something the ISC might like to examine..."
I did that. HMRC got very unhappy about it and I had to quit. My bosses got very unhappy about that but 25K would have looked good given the tax take that Revenue wanted to impose.
Never a more deserving case
What, can anyone tell me ISN'T wrong with the The Da Vinci Code? I can't find anything.
The plot is lifted straight from "Holy Blood, Holy Grail" which is a load of unjustifiable crap invented by two conmen to sell theories to women who don't feel that the Bible is girly enough, the dialogue is APPALLING, the research is non-fucking-existant - he gets the layout of the Louvre wrong when they even have a map online for fuck's sake - and as for "symbology", what is that meant to be?
Semiotics for people stupid enough to buy Dan Brown books?
Wait, hold on..
General Dynamics have lawyers and money. HTC have lawyers and money (and, in the case of using Android, a pretty good hook inot just using Gooogle's lawyers and money and they have so much that they have a big money pool to swim in).
This makes it seem unlikely to me that these patents are indeed worthless or fake or whatever it is that you can pretty much always expect El Reg commentards to call them. Put it this way, in order to make somebody pay blackmail, you really do need to have something on them.
No, it's not better. However, as is argued far more clearly than I can manage in _The Holocaust Industry_ by Norman G. Finkelstein (c.2000) this kind of numerical inflation cheapens the memories of those who died and is used a lever by others who cynically wish to profit from the whole thing.
My granny (who was pure Romany, had a sister and both parents die in the camps and was not one for political correctness) used to spit furious invective about the Jews for continually whining about the whole thing and proclaiming themselves to be the only victims. Whether fairly or unfairly is not for me to say. All I know is, the facts are there. Making it look bigger than it was is either lazy or cynically manipulative and I won't sit back and watch it go uncorrected.
