WTF is a warfighter? Was there something wrong with saying military?
Simpleton Bush language still smouldering out there.
Such a shame...
..that the acronym couldn't work out to PICPU.
When it comes to Symantec, I'm not sympathetic.
The information fell into the wrong hands when the police got it.
A bit early to buy visittropicalgreenland.com ?
I do not understand the frenzy to update. No OS X release has been useful until after the 10.x.5 release at minimum. Up to then it's beta-land.
"We are liaising with the police and highest level of cyber crime authorities."
That is reassuring.
Re: I wonder...
It's like the one in the US: To Protect (the wealthy) and to Serve (warrants on poor people).
Do I hear a bell tolling faintly?
Not just an Acquisition...
but a confession as well. The idea gauge reads empty.
Angry Flappy Birds
What happens if one of the drives fails physically? Let's say we want to try the freezer trick to grab some data, can it be stuffed in a case and mounted externally after being formatted that way?
Did anyone else notice another anniversary coincident with this one?
One of the stumbling blocks to resolving that other anniversary is that more than one shooter was possibly involved, yet only one was apprehended. For 50 years there have been arguments about whether the shooter acted alone, yet physical evidence of additional shooters is sparse.
Was a Tardis near the grassy knoll that day?
Why didn't Snowden understand the vulnerability?
A little anecdotal data point: Last summer I was commuting into Miami. Over the course of two weeks I saw the same Tesla car 4 times in traffic. Two of them on its own power and two of them on a rollback. It's surprisingly large in person, nice looking. But the rollback frequency is reminiscent of 80's Jaguar ownership.
Why do people even consider this before the .6 revision is out?
Replacing Facebook is idiotic, I agree. Better to host my own site with info I can delete and change at will, and avoid free services as much as possible. There are these things called search engines that can find me anyway if someone wants to look me up. I can type short blurbs if I want to be succinct, without signing up for yet another service that limits my characters for me. I can have private pages that stay private and can be removed.
This is all dependent upon my not being egotistically bound to artificial stats about how may people are paying attention to me. Which are mostly set up to drive the user to produce even more free content. Or have trolly articles with half-baked conclusions. Like certain articles on certain tech sites, say.
File Browser Question
Is it possible to have a column view in Nemo like OS X?
Will they throw in a free Zune?
No non-competes in Cali...
Who's being a third-world country now?
A bot that responds to a Doctor Who reference with another?
Would it be called Re:Tardis ?
"- the Obama administration will deal with it."
Objective historians agree...
Make it a ball-shaped dingus
That way, when they drop it, the metaphor will be doubly appropriate.
Re: Look on the bright side
Those tweets were the first time anything REMOTELY funny has been published online under The Onion name.
Yup, got it.
Cloud Reliance = Idiocy
or Suicide, I hear the rate is rising int he US. Must be middle-aged corporations as well.
Re: Kicks to the what now?
Also a congregation...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Curb
"This is just another sign of a long, slow decline...."
Exactly, I read it as a death knell.
Safari, the short bus of browsers
That is all.
"...based on its 2012 revenue of $US50 billion, it's about 1 hour, 13.5 minutes of the Chocolate Factory's income."
So make the fine in hours of enforced downtime or revenue from that time. 24 hours might have stung a bit.
No Mention of Pinguy?
I'd think it would be a top contender for a beginner/switcher. Rarely takes any explanation when I've installed it for folks. Just put the stuff they want in Docky and let them at it.
Good to see that Dell is taking his own advice and giving the money back to the stockholders. MS is getting into integration with hardware. Sounds like the way another computer company does things. And we saw what happened to the clones.
"Silver Lake’s portfolio includes Avaya, Go Daddy, GroupOn, Skype and Zynga"
Sounds like a death knell. Maybe they should call themselves Mercury Lake.
Broadwell played him well
Got access, wrote book with his info, outed him for free publicity. Well played.
We keep looking at habitability from the wrong end. We need to suss out what makes us what we are, and implant that in a body that has fewer stringent requirements for survival and doesn't age, something that can use anything as fuel, has a long sleep/hibernation mode. Once that is done, the universe is our playground. The way we think now is like going camping with raw eggs instead of hard boiled, and working around that rather than exploring. Mammal bodies are ridiculously susceptible to allergies, viral and bacteriological attacks, and maundering behavior from chemical imbalances. Time to move on.
In general the database-driven iApps are frustrating to anyone above a novice, or anyone who wants to put media files on something besides an iPod. I'm using all 3rd-party apps, why spend for another Mac? Do some reviews on better Linux lappies, Reg.
Re: This is not an ultra book
But is is shiny!
Menace always needed...
Linux, the new communism.
Another word that could be used is FCC Complaint.
How does it feel?
Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you ?
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.
How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone ?
Is this about patents?
Was Ive's mum scared by an Altoids box while she was carrying him?
If you were an evil guy with lots of henchmen and you wanted to destroy the US, all you'd have to do is get Republicans elected. Selling natural resources for cheap (fracking), cutting the financial legs out from everyone, encouraging ignorant obedience, helping the psycho 1% hoard even more in whatever game they play at that level...no nukes needed, no terrorist tricks, just get Repubs into office.
...accusing someone of overcharging for something.
Re: Zynga board games lol
And Oligopoly... or is that hitting a bit close?
Maybe the answer will show up in a round of Casual Chase.
Jonah Swallowed By Own Whopper
Headline for sale...see title.
3. Buy a proprietary connector just to be able to save your work to another drive.
Maybe Apple can release something that doesn't look like it was designed by someone whose mom was frightened by an Altoids tin while she was carrying him.
Oops, no such luck, just a boat...
Sadly the museum was taken over by the kind of folks who would think this was a good idea some years ago, causing a real flight of knowledgeable docents. The flight path of the "paper" airplane parallels that of the institution.
I wonder if the FCC personnel that approved it are now working for LS. This might be a perfect case for illustrating the issues that result from the revolving door between US Gov and Industry.
