I am not sure if the author is taking the piss, or is being serious.
I hope he's just taking a piss because he's been watching too many spy movies.
" If you can't tell the difference between what these idiots were doing and why the NSA "hack" then I can probably interest you in a great family holiday camp investment in Akmolinsk....."
Ok, so explain us why the NSA "hack", and why would it matter?
They were/are breaking the law too, "why" they hack is completely irrelevant.
Re: I think it could be quite interesting.
"WP8 is arguably MS' best product right now, though unfortunately one of their worst sellers!"
Can one save an SMS draft now, or it's still a feature missing from WP phones?
"A very poor one then. Lumia sales are increasing at over 30% a quarter and Nokia were expected back into profit before the end of the year..."
Hehehe. This is cute :)
"Might the story have been just a little different if the girl, or one of her mates, had got a nice eyeful of bleach and permanently lost her eyesight? It is not really as harmless as this article makes it appear.
Even some of the vids on youtube comment about the damage this type of 'experiment' does to anything near by, simply because you are spraying a harmful corrosive substance around."
Make sure to cut all the trees, drain all the rivers, hermetically close all drains, block all roads, prohibit cars and motocycles, forbid sports, ...
I mean, someone might otherwise get hurt.
I really can't undestand what the fuck happened with humans in past 20 years. It's as if whole race turned into retards overnight.
Re: Router Genuine Advantage update check?
My Ubuntu desktop sends some data back to their servers every day.
Should I call FBI?
"The Pirate Bay made considerable profits from directing users to artistic material - but failed to pay the artists."
Hahaha. Next thing you know, torrent sites will be stealing candies from school kids.
Re: Nokia need to put out Android phones
Yeah, it is a real hit, especially with indie developers.
Re: You wont find it on IOS
It would appear that you don't understand why 0-day exploits are so expensive these days, and what they are used for.
Hint: you don't need Apple to install a trojan.
Jesus, humans are screwed
I honestly can't believe that I am reading how making things pretty is now considered to be 'innovation'. As an engineer that spend most of his life actually innovating things, I can only spit on current state of humanity. Humans are definitely turning into brainless retards.
Re: Apple's values are important. Seriously.
"Lost its soul? Hardly. Apple have stood their ground and avenged the mistakes of the past (e.g., Microsoft Windows, Apple's dumb licensing deal).
Apple redefined computing (again) and this time no one is going to screw them by making cheap, ghastly knockoffs."
As someone who has been using computers every day for past 32 years, I am dying to find out how exactly Apple "redefined computing (again)".
Re: A friend of mine works for Samsung
[quote]But Samsung really are just a cloner. It says it all that Apple's patents were all software and Samsung's patents were all about boring shit like chips. All of the innovation is in the software, the chips are just the mechanics.[/quote]
How do you even breathe?
"I got a WP Nokia a few weeks ago - I think it's great. When you say "I hate Windows" do you mean you hate Windows desktop so you refused to even try a totally different OS because it had the same name, or that you tried and hated WP?"
This is why some people don't buy Windows Phone: http://my-symbian.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=44034
Personally, I don't like iOS and/or Android either, since they are crap as phones.
That's why I still use E72.
P.S: I mean, even my old shitty 30$ Samsung phone has 'multi select/delete' feature for SMSs. How Microsoft could release a phone without that basic feature is beyond me. Unless Lumia 900 (only one that I haven't tried) has that feature, in which case I'd laugh even more.
Re: Ah, the usual anti-Sony fanbois are out in force.
Your wall of text would be much more interesting if you had any idea what you're talking about.
Unfortunately, that wall of text looks like a product of 100 monkeys hitting the keyboard.
I really liked the "it was not Sony, it was Sony's lawyers" part.
Are those "1000 executives", by any chance, 16 years old?
Wow, This is cool.
Honestly, watching a civilization collapse, in real-time - nothing like it.
Of course they are not confident with their product.
I mean, just look at how bad Galaxy S II is, they must be ashamed of it ;)
Do you think using meme "FAIL" will make you look edgy?
I regret reading that wall of text, to be honest. Waste of time and brain cells.
Ok, I am dumb
And I thought that US patent is valid in US only, not in Australia or Botswana.
So I must be missing something, I just can't figure out what it is :)
"I'm confused. You can have a 3G phone, pay for a license to make and sell one and still have the license holders come after you for more?"
You are, indeed, confused. If Apple was playing nice, Nokia wouldn't need to sue them 2 years ago. You know, sue them because Apple was trying not to pay royalties/license feels like everyone else in the phone market.
To Apple, IP is important only when it's Apple's IP.
And it's not important when it's someone else's IP.
"Did these Android phones exist on any drawing boards before the appearance of the iPhone? No. Did you want a smartphone before you saw an iPhone? No. Admit it, you love Apple's products. That's why you want a clone of one."
The only real 'surprise' with iPhone in 2007 was the fact Apple has developed an OS which had great touchscreen support. And that's it.
Their 'unique look' dogma is retarded, pretty much all the touchscreen phones around that time were already getting shaped into 'rounded rectangle' - just remember HTC WM5/6 phones. But hardware required to run WM was not small enough to make it fit into smaller/thinner case, and touchscreen support was crap, so front buttons were still a must (mostly because of WM limitations).
Apple used most advanced hardware at the time suited for their custom crafted OS (which allowed them to be 'flatter'), and good touchscreen support (which made it possible to get rid of the buttons on the front).
Just look at bloody digital photo frames (most popular example these days) from 2001 and 2006, and tell me if you see a trend.
Not to mention that you should look at some 2001 CRT TVs and compare them with LCDs later on. Then wonder why is it that LCD TVs looked so 'different' (because they could and it was a logical/natural step). Do you think that lack of buttons on LCD TVs/monitors is because everyone is copying iPhone, huh?
Then look at GPSs and many other things that progressed to their 'minimalistic' state. I also remember seeing digital watches progressing from bulky 'blocks' to thin flat screens.
Because that's natural.
And that's what pisses people off. Someone trying to take the credit for natural progress.
What's next? Icon grid being Apple invention?
Ok, that EVE reference is a killer :)
Just put him in damn chopper and transfer from point A to point B, and save people from "I am so important, you'll suffer now" charade.
When did these idiots forget that they're supposed to serve *people*, not the other way around?
