Re: Apple - maybe not down the rabbit hole but they are certainly up some other hole of their own!
Your tree will only be infringing if it starts to manufacture and sell electronic goods (or jewellery or some other stuff) and brands them with a leaf design like the one in the trademark application...
You do realise that Nike have trademarked a tick, the post office (along with many other companies) have trademarked a colour and some fashion label has a trademark of a crocodile? You do realise that a trademark is not a patent?
Geeze, as someone else pointed out - the level of stupid around here is rising.
I believe the abuse is more like going to an 'all you can eat' restaurant and passing plates of food out of the window to your mates... but if you want to to believe differently then carry on.
Re: Virgin Media broadband outage - six days until fixed?
It could be hardware or infrastructure that's busted...
Who uses it? Anyone who is in a company with a sharesave scheme ... plus anybody else who owns any shares...
There are quite a few of us I'd imagine.
"I can confirm we have not announced any plans to expand our operations in India"
In other words the Indian job market is looking up.
Re: Brains not required
Well lets see if it gets thrown out then shall we...
And why should "stupidity" have no right to sue? Do you think that fraud is ok? Wait until someone scams you out of some cash and see how you feel then. Or does your ego make you think that you are too clever to be scammed? (admittedly the bar was quite low on this one but that isn't the point)
Re: "removing all the signs and lines leads to safer roads"
"That said its been proved removing all the signs and lines leads to safer roads"
Could you provide a link to the data / research paper. I'd be interested in reading that. Thanks.
"improvement in procedures"
that'll be doing some testing then...
Looks like the market for contractors should pick up a bit in Feb 2013...
re: It always makes me laugh...
It is a ruse. You'll also notice that it only takes them a few minutes to crack "military-grade" encryption.
i.e. message to all criminal types - don't bother with encryption as the police can crack it in about five minutes. It's ok to phone the police and taunt them from your mobile as long as you hang up before thirty seconds has elapsed - they'll never be able to find you if you do this...
EDI was/is rubbish...
...but only for certain values of rubbish. It's hard to get right (or expensive to have set up properly) but it is very bandwidth friendly - mainly due to it's pre-internet heritage.
Also, I'd be interested to see your really simple address definition.
Things like this appear easy until you get into the gory details (rural addresses, different international address standards, BFPO addresses, etc). Just writing a routine to reliably interpret addresses is non-trivial.
200-300 lines - you must be joking. Just Google "Hello World Cobol" - the first example I found was about 20 lines long (and at least half of the lines in this example were completely redundant).
What gets me is that BT thinks that pointing to "ongoing investment" is in any way an answer to the fact that actual speed is lower than advertised speed. I'm not paying for speeds that I might achieve in the future, I'm paying for these speeds now.
@MarkOne ...half truths?
It is only a half truth if you consider Opera to be a competitor.
Re: If you're unemployed...
You do know that some of us had a job before we were made redundant?
Oh, I'm pretty sure it'll be on the internet pretty sharpish...
I just took the test and failed...
I was only born here and have lived here all my life... quite well educated too.
Most of those questions are bizarre and have no relevance to living in the UK. Who the f*ck cares what other names the Church of England can go by, and why would I care how many hours children are allowed to work - if I ever have any children or wish to employ any, I'll find out. Maybe I should have followed my last job when it was outsourced to India - apparently I'm not fit to live here...
You mean like when you gave them permission by signing up to the terms and conditions of the Google application store?
It should also be pointed out that If you didn't agree with their terms and conditions then you don't have permission to access their store and so it would be YOU who would be in breach of the computer misuse act.
By my calculations that is over £66 per survey respondent!
They could have could have issued them a free ID card and paid them £30 for their opinions and it still would have worked out cheaper.
It would seem that Jerry York had worse health problems...
