Now he's decided to ship a Linux distro after all. Good MS times!
Re: Looks really impressive
"Look up the General Belgrano."
Presenting a very small engagement from two decades ago may not be helping your argument.
Attacking the methodology of a paper is very far away indeed from an ad hom.
What the ICO needed was a more hands off approach and an increased unwillingness to follow up on complaints. Thanks government, I'm sure no industry lobbying took place there.
No. They are likely to say that they are investment notes, as indeed the SEC have already said in several cases. A court is unlikely to argue with the SEC regarding this matter.
Blocking gay and lesbian material but not heterosexual sites is also arguably a breach of the Equalities Act.
Yes, most companies just lie about their practices or aren't aware of just how casual marketing are with the databases.
The manufacturer of the charger, assuming the power output is out of spec. I'm glad I could clear that up for you.
If Google Maps is not best in class, what is? OSM is the only thing I can think of that comes close.
Re: Undecided as yet
If you actually care then install a custom rom without gapps.
So to be clear, the complainants broke their own legal commitments and were presented without any criticism of that or their views? Good to know where you stand.
Actively managing their patent portfolio.
How the mighty are fallen.
Re: change the world and toss off the devil.
"Now, you've had a lot of offers of souls. Just wait a moment and listen to this option..."
"Murdoch admits snooping on OWN FAMILY in spy shock" ...*blinks*...Sorry, I thought I was a Sun sub for a second.
Re: Hey Microsoft - here's an idea
There is no commercial use (or, indeed, any form of use) restriction in GPL at all.
Re: KitKat, grey areas and clear English
On existing devices? Well, I'm glad that won't result in an extremely predictable class action lawsuit.
Re: Thanks El Reg
Sony, oddly enough, are now becoming one of the most FOSS friendly phone manufacturers.
Re: And the first step towards Skynet has been taken...
Why involve a pilot at all?

...you're already implementing the logic routines in neurons, there's no inherent barrier to doing it in silicon.
Never is a long time.
They've got something rotten in their very core.
Re: Do I hear the sound...
No, by this point there's merely a suspiciously large pile of hot metal filings on the workshop floor.
Re: Seems pretty hard to make back the price of a $100 phone
How stupid of them to value a stock that increases in value instead. Idiots!
Re: Is it water proof?
I'd like to think they are smart enough to have a membrane (waterproof) speaker. They aren't expensive these days.
It was very, very good for video processing. I'm actually surprised that people aren't doing bitcoins on them, but I guess Moore's law comes to us all.
Re: Great display tech, not so sure about the watch.
It's pretty clear that this is a proof of concept product; Qualcomm don't do channel conflict so they'll be trying to licence it out.
Re: All your phone are belong to us
Or just a sandboxed VM.
Re: All your phone are belong to us
I downloaded the apk out of curiosity. Requested permissions include network and GPS location, identifying other running apps, changing connectivity, connecting and disconnecting WiFi, changing WiFi settings, full network access and sticky broadcasts.
Good thing there's no attack surface for 0-days.
Re: No perp???
"a nice bit of double jeopardy"
That is not what double jeopardy is.
Yes, of course. Stating the reason for blocking is not a moral commentary on the reson for the block.
Serious technical chops. Serious weight with the OEMs and publishers, too.
Re: Seems Irrelevant
I believe Google Fiber is a gigabit. Other ISPs will also be that fast before 4K gets big.
"I don't think my Chrome book uses X11 (though I don't actually know)."
In the very best tradition of Reg puns, I thought.
Re: "the Winfanboi niche"?
There are also wide-eyed idiots with MSCEs who incorrectly think they know everything and MS is best.
Re: New Job
Sure. Lulzsec demonstrated an unusual amount of skill at penetration. I'm sure he'd be popular as a pen tester.
Re: iSheeple are easily fooled.
In fairness to Apple, the non-VM iOS does seem a bit less cycle-happy than Android.
You don't need to bring the capital in; the company can just borrow inside the US whilst securing the loan on the capital that never entered the country you are borrowing in.
Re: I can't imagine Steve Jobs
No, of course...unless a competitor had launched it.
Although I think it's unlikely, the chances of it got a lot better after Valve ported the Source engine to SDL and OpenGL (with better performance even on Windows).
Re: Kind of an odd stance from MS
I won't hold my breath for the apology over the original statements (or indeed the complaint to the EU) before they bothered to actually write an app.
Re: Neil Mawston is clearly a pillock
They are making a WATCH. What do you people want, blood?
Re: UK already has an open map
Apple's OSM data was another licence change before this one. It's *really* old; so much so it was obsolete even before the Apple Maps launch.
Re: NZ Has No TV Tax
"Even the cry of "BBC does the best costume dramas" has been lacking of late seeing as ITV has Downton Abbey."
Re: To fix the problem
You almost certainly don't have her kind of expenses either, and I'd hope that you wouldn't think that her children should be paying for the (I would argue) foolishness/possible mental illness of the mother.
"The feature stops being of any use if you have so many tabs open that the icons all accordion together and disappear, so the usefulness of it will depend on your browsing habits."
Given that this is in alpha I'd imagine this will get tweaked.
Re: Red Hat still caring?
"Reads as if Red Hat is trying to help Microsoft during Microsoft's struggling times"
I'm not exactly an MS fan, but I have to say that maybe everyone except Apple would kill to be in what you consider the 'struggling' position of MS.
Re: Quite frankly.....
Linus rants for good reasons, yes. He's actually quite reserved; I recall being in an IRC channel in the mid 90s when someone was debating kernel design with him and heavily implying that he was an idiot at every turn in a really remarkably condescending way. Linus conceded the point at issue and left.
After Linus left the other people on channel told the person who the user account belonged to. Some level of amusement occurred.
Oh, and a bonus quote:
"Peck v United Kingdom (2003) 36 EHRR 41 Mr Peck was filmed on a public street in an embarrassing moment by a CCTV camera. Subsequently, the film was broadcast several times on the television. The Strasbourg court said (at p. 739) that this was an invasion of his privacy contrary to article 8:
"the relevant moment was viewed to an extent which far exceeded any exposure to a passer-by or to security observation and to a degree surpassing that which the applicant could possibly have foreseen when he walked in Brentwood on August 20, 1995.""
I repeat to you, get your legal advice somewhere qualified.
