Apple badmouthing of court's monitor proves it NEEDS him - judge

Alien Doctor 1.1

Yawhat?

You don't think Apple already have an highly paid team of shysters on retainers already?

There is no "in fairness to xxx" (whichever multi-billion company is in question at the time) - they subvert and pervert taxation laws, they overcharge, they (Apple) do not (unless forced to) comply with consumer protection legislation in whichever markets they operate, they are just not nice and too big.

I would love to see some of these companies broken up into totally independent businesses for their various "products".

Sorry, this was written after lunch (hic) - it probably makes no sense to anyone other than my shrink.

To fel with you! There's an NSA spook in my World of Warcraft

Oh well...

if they view my guilds' comments in Neverwinter then I guess there will be 550+ arrests on the books.

We're a small (only 550+ members, not all active) guild but love taking the piss out of each other; the enessay can read into it what they will, but we're only playing a fucking game - although I'm sure some comments about taking down the big bastards with my new missiles (most of us are running with the new hunter/ranger archery class) could provoke them into a first strike against Lord Neverember. Fucking Orcs - or should that be Norcs or Narcs?).

Apple tackles iPhone lock-up cockup with iOS 7.0.2

It shouldn't be too bad...

Aleister Crowley, Israel Regardie et al are long dead; any current form of the Golden Dawn are likely to be American imposters trying to run it like the money-making scheme called the Rosicrucians.

Re: Fat Freddy always gets burned!

@ someone talking about Fat Freddie - it was always the cat that got burned - one of the best cartoons was Fat Freddies cat falling several stories whilst saying "it's okay we always land on our feet" then the next panel shows the cat with concertined legs as he landed - classic - i laughed so much i dropped the bong, shoved my head in the bucket bong and swallowed all my stash in one go.

At least i could cope with it all those years ago - 30 years on and even passing a resinous pine tree gets me stoned.

Unhappy

I can't forgive them...

they made me redundant in the early 90's from the Bristol office when I turned down a move to Milton Keynes - the office wsn't closing then, I think it may have been constructive dismissal - but at the time I was so naive concerning the machinations of the IT industry.

German KIT v Fighting Seawolves in student cluster deathmatch

Alien Doctor 1.1

Seawolves

A quick wiki gives:

Early when the Stony Brook Campus was located in Oyster Bay, the team was known as the Soundmen or Baymen. Throughout the 1960s when it moved to its present location, Stony Brook sport teams were known as the Stony Brook Patriots. In 1994 as Stony Brook anticipated a rise to Division I in the NCAA the nickname of the team was changed to its present one today, the Seawolves. The Seawolf was said to be a mythical creature from the Tlingit tribe which brought good luck to those able to see it.

HP 'overcharged New York City by $163m' on 911 system

Where can I puke?

<quote>

"HP is committed to helping the city of New York build an effective and innovative 911 call center for the city’s greatest public servants – those at the front lines of emergency response every day. "

</quote>

I guess HP have been watching too many U.S. crime series and trying to buy in to the sickliness that pervades American politics: if you can't slag it off in public, talk nicely about it and no-one will know you're really sticking a finger down your throat and wishing you were European.

iPhone doc will detect cancer, diabetes - boffins

Oooops

Why I thought there were 14 days in a week escapes me - not having to have a regular INR would give me 1/14th of my week back.

Too many blood tests

After having had a pulmonary embolism in 2004 and then three more blood clots in my leg recently I have put on warfarin for life - this is a royal pain-in-the-inner-arm as I need to have INR checks on a weekly basis, which means half a day waiting at the doc's for the phlebologist to take my sample and send it to the hospital for testing.

Anything that would give me 1/28th of my week back would be very useful and means I won't end up with an arm looking like a smack-addict.

It still won't turn me an iphone user though - but hopefully the tech will be available to all - the benefits should outweigh any use by a company to patent it.
