Of course the FTC has no power to stop Facebook requiring users to accept an updated terms of service (that allow them to resell data) in order to continue to use the app.

Facebook! WHY! MUST! YOU! DESTROY! EVERYTHING! WE! LOVE!
Remember how everyone said HTML5 was going to destroy the appstore?
Website require the app is downloaded every time you want to run it, mobile apps are stored on the device. That is the major advantage.
Thats why about 30% of the popular non-game apps on the appstore are just JS/HTML in a app wrapper a-la phonegap.
This will just mean that phonegap apps can have pretty graphics - not that browser apps will suddenly decimate mobile apps - although some nefarious websites might try and harness your GPU for a giant bitcoin mining grid :P
You troll, you
Russell Howard good news? That alone justifies the channel :P
Its so much easier to just put up a message, like ITV has, saying "We need advertising revenue. Please dissable adblock to continue to use this page."
My experience from playing the first 12 levels of the game was the the combat (meele at least) was atrocious.
I found it to be a rehash of tired MMO idoms with dull questing and sub standard fighting. A massive dissapointment after being exposed to the refreshing take GuildWars 2 brought to the format.
I've heard that the endgame is meant to be a lot better - but I CBA to grind to the end and I'd rather save my monthly fee for steam sales.
Have fun trying to achieve anything in japan as a non-resident foreigner.

Not MtGox's fault
This isn't MtGox's fault as the article implies, its a flaw in the bitcoin transaction protocol that allows transactions to be duped and hijacked - and thus effects all exhanges.
I'm guessing that someone tried to/successfully pulled off a rather large heist and MtGox had to foot the bill for it.
Their radio silence when they shut down trading causing bitcoin's value to bomb (allong with the russian announcement), was unfortunate but is entirely understandable given the nature of the exploit.
Cant help but think the author of this article should have put in a bit more research. Here's what the bitcoin development team had to say in relation to MtGox: http://www.businessinsider.com/bitcoin-developer-responds-to-mtgox-2014-2
Its on a computer, THAT MEANS IT CAN CRASH !!!!!!!

No email verification
I just had someone sign up for a skype account using my email address.
Turns out, they don't require email verification to set up a new account associated with an email address.
Might be a prudent first step.
Only one question...
Is it optimised for my raspberry pi?
This revelation has the terrorists quaking in their fur suits
It strikes me that theres something amusing about bitcoins:
If they keep on going up in value, then who the hell is stupid enough to spend them.
But is no one actually buys stuff with them... then its just a commodity - not an actual currency.
I bet he looked at what's happening to doom 4 development, /facepalmed, and said "this is the new duke nukem forever, isnt' it - I'm going to go do something cool"

Re: Pitbull photo
Its worth noting that all except the 290 are rebraded 7000 series cards.
the 280x for example is a 7970 with a slightly lower power draw.

Re: New Option
What, like my corsair c70 with an asus sabertooth MB and hydro h110i cooler and radeon HD graphics card?
Its pretty easy, and it works pretty much flawlessly - more flawless than windows sitting on the other disk. ;)
...and that apple sticker i got with my iPod stuck on the bottom of the case makes it "apple branded" hardware... doesn't it? :D
The only thing is you need access to a mac to buy and download the OS to a usb stick to install it.
Its disappointing to see them go with Mobile graphics again, and desktops shipping with half a gig of VRAM is pretty wtf in this day and age.
Spec wise its almost an upright laptop with a larger screen.

"Some 11 million people have now used Apple's new iRadio service, with the most popular song being Hold On, We’re Going Home by American rapper/singer Drake. "
Tsk tsk, calling a Canadian an American.

Wait a sec, the thing is the size (and style) of an 80's VCR - and STILL requires an external power brick the size of a, err, brick.
Re: If i upload something that i don't own
>what happens when facebook sell it?
You're liable :P
told you so
"After his release, 67-year-old McAfee told reporters, "I'm free. I'm going to America." He said he plans to catch a flight to Miami.
Guatemalan immigration officials have already escorted McAfee to the Guatemala City airport."
We all know what happened
/cough/ bribe /cough/
No doubt he will be on a private jet to america before not to long as the Guatemalans look the other way.
fail both ways
Either way, HP have failed big time. If they did inflate value their company by 9 times its value, then HP's due diligence was woefully inadequate. If HP has managed to destroy the business in the relatively short time they've owned it - that too is a masive fail.
We all thought the purchase was pretty over valued - seen as a desperate move on HPs part to reposition itself in the corporate services sector, along with the announced closure of its hardware business.
So i recon that its a bit of both, and HP is just going from one misjudged cockup to another.
This is old news, what's a better story is how easy access to private and public social media made the secret services lazy and drop the ball a few years back.
this is a 2+ month old news item... is the news that slow at the moment? How about.... erm.... mcaffee cooking freebase bath salts and murdering someone (allegedly) for a new story?
You think facebook's stock plummet is bad, lets take a quite look at groupon, trading at $2.73 last i checked - they were initially priced at $20 and started trading at $28. Quite the fall. It still beggars belief how people thought it would ever be worth that much.
Now he's gone...

Re: The point is..........what?
It was briefly leaked on their store
$500 for the 32Gb model
$600 for the 32Gb model with keyboard case
$700 for the 64Gb model with keyboard case
$120 for the keyboard case on its own (ouch)
Delivery on 26 Oct for pre orders.
It makes you shell out another $120 if you want to buy the keyboard cover ($100 if you get it with the device at time of order)
So i guess it provides enlightenment... of the wallet.
I think equally importantly the question should be asked, "Is this going to prevent me from downgrading my OS to win 7"

Re: I'm so surprized...
thats apple's as well
no seriously, it is.
I'm guessing this $199 price point is for Microsoft employees getting a generous 30-50% discount it being announced at a MS employee only event.
