Why the S2? I bought mine because it was *NOTHING LIKE* an iPhone. Puzzled.

WAR ON PORN: UK flicks switch on 'I am a pervert' web filters

Dante

Re: pop up

The pop-up will be really clever, like, and you'll have to put in the account holders credit card. What could possibly go wrong!

Samsung vs Apple: which smartphone do Reg readers prefer?

Dante

Re: nah...

Fuck me you're tiresome.

So summed up, if it doesn't do what you want it to do due to walled gardeness - you're doing it wrong!

True, but not how you think :)

DoJ to Kim Dotcom: We never asked you to retain files

Yes, he may be a cock but in no way does that excuse what the US Gov have done here.

Google's ethics, cosy UK.gov chats under Westminster scrutiny

Re: The internet does not do competition

I would hazard a guess that the part which was created via the Google cars was actually created by Google.

Uh-oh! Kim Dotcom is back with a brand new Megaupload site

Re: aka stolen

Think the key word there is "previously".

The guy is a cock but, really, the whole thing with the US and Mega Upload stinks.

Xbox SmartGlass hits Android ahead of schedule

It should

I managed to install it and have a mess around with it last night.

Apple: Blue-shirts can fix iOS Maps in their spare time

Re: Didn't take long...

There's more reasons to dislike Apple than petty OS tribalism.

'What was Google going to do, force Apple to change its mind?'

Dante

Re: "We think it would have been better if they had kept ours."

I've read (although I can't remember where) that Google WERE willing to license the turn-by-turn, but Apple refused the conditions - I think it was greater brand visibility and *think* deeper API integration.

Key evidence in Assange case dissolves

Dante

Re: @Acx

"Condoms also contain a spermicide which may have destroyed the DNA so it could be that the chances of retrieving a usable sample were slim to start with. Hardly reason to claim evidence tampering."

Sooo that's why murderers wipe condoms around the crime scene before making their escape!

Re: That verdict was bloody brilliant

Jury awards Apple $1bn damages in Samsung patent case

Dante

Not what I'm saying... I'm saying that software patents stifle innovation... would you like to live in a world where BT held the patents to hyperlinks?

Dante

I don't care for both the corps involved, but the fact that software patents were upheld (scrolling list bounce back, and phone number recognition are the two I picked up on) is a mortal wound for innovation.

Shame on you Apple.

Re: More to come

I find it quite disturbing that you use the word "disrespectful" makes it sound like we should all be grovelling in front of our Corporate and US governmental masters.

Google ditches the bits in the bottom of the box

Dante

Silly on google's part - probably the only reason I actually log into my google account. Can't use google+ here at work so thats a no-goer.

Just found this though http://code.google.com/p/dropthings/ I'll have a mess about writing my own replacement.

Re: So why wasn't this guy extradited to the US?

It seems you only get extradited to the US when the "crime" is only a crime in the US and not in the UK.

Virgin Media's latest throttling rules

Dante

Re: download at a different time

A big selling point for digital distribution is instant - having to stagger getting a crital patch for a game until the ISP says it's ok to do so is not good.

In theory that would be cool, but in reality it would only be the claims of big corps which would be taken seriously.

PETA claims anti-Mario campaign was a joke

Dante

"Call of Duty, where characters shoot and kill animals, or in Dog Wars, where players have fun fighting and torturing dogs, it sends a dangerous message that this kind of behaviour is acceptable"

Really, it doesn't.

Shit like this angries up my blood and that's as a veggie for over 20 years.

Twunts.
