Local TV, really?
Local news is bad enough. Cat stuck up tree, or granny receives award for serving 50,000th cuppa at community centre.
No one will watch it. Bloody Cameron and his ilk. Need shot.
Re: Security Issue?
"Why do we need a password on our home FAMILY computer that only we use?"
Re: My iphone is tracking my every movement...
"The Location Tracking icon appears in the upper right of my iPhone's screen even though *all* individual apps have Location Services disabled.
*They* (the 'Them-They' They with the capital 'T') are tracking me.
So I'll have to spend the evening driving around to places that do not interest me in the slightest, to throw Them off the track."
Best way. Throw them nonsense.
"I have a shirt that tells me "Do not iron while wearing" I have peanut butter cookies that "MAY CONTAIN NUTS"."
All because of our litigious brothers across the pond. Their evil ways rub off on those who don't want to earn a living in the UK, and go scrounging for money.
"seriously you think Google are the only ones to have tracking cookies... it's just that Safari is such an insecure browser that they are easy to write for!
get a real browser and then you won't have the problems :)"
Does it matter what tech you like? You're all being tracked no matter what you do.
Apple is shite, thats it.
Maybe, just maybe, people are starting to recognise the Apple spit and polish is actually bollox and Apple could not innovate its way out of a paper bag.
Re: Some sense at last
EPIC FAIL for using the word lefty.
Apple shares dives at lower revenues.
Hardly surprising that Samsung are forecasting the same.
I love it. NFC forum have to push its capabilities because joe pleb hasn't got the imagination to think of its capabilities.
The plebs have to wait for Apple to find a killer application for it before it goes mainstream.
Shocking state of affairs.
I'm sure that NFC security was the LAST thing on their minds.
"set up an easy system for people to report offensive tweets."
Really, thats very subjective. All tweets are offensive to me! Your don't hear me crying like a little girl.
Honestly, I'd sue right back.
fixed that for you
"An iPhone is the last thing in the world that you need, if you really wish to end your loneliness"
Honestly, what a bunch of wankers. We all know that iFolk are sad followers, but this takes things to new depths.
I'd rather have the feeble minded become catholic than islamic.
Sorry, but time and time again its the islamists in the headlines for their extreme actions.
Which would you prefer, a bomb or a bake sale?
Tho, I'd much prefer all to be educated and not brainwashed by religion.
Re: Romans 16:17-18
For those who have never, and never will, read the bible, WTF?
Quoting fiction now?
Re: Gentle voice of reason! Do me a favour.
"Or to put it another way, too much information is counter-productive to the aims of religion.
Or to extrapolate, education is the enemy of religion."
Yup! The muslim exteremists are an excellent example of this.
They fear that once the individual has the knowledge, they start to disbelieve.
Netflix is for the cheapos in society who don't want to pay for Sky!
"or a Windows user I would suggest a usb stick with Linux for banking transactions."
I've been banking online for years and years on a windows machine. NEVER EVER had a problem.
Though, I have at least 1 brain cell. 1 more than the average PC user tho.
Re: Windows Kiss of Death
"Now, if they all just switched to Linux, it will all be sweetness and light and we can love one another and the world again."......until "software nasties" are written for 'nix machines.
(I hate twenty-teenagers)
"which leaves us in the comfortable realm of idle speculation.
This is just guessing of course"
What a NONE STORY! Thanks for that WASTE OF TIME.
Re: To our continental friends -
Cameron is the UK's Bush!
Re: Referendum is not very likely
"the chances of the Conservatives winning the next election are not very big."
Don't bet on it! The fuckwit British electorate have put us in this position to start with.
I never underestimate just how selfish/retarded the British REALLY are.
Cameron: "If you don't do as I say I'm not playing"
Europe: David, you lost the election remember? You aren't Prime Minister any more""
Let’s hope so, because the blues are steering us into the dark ages! I don’t trust the UK population to know what is right or wrong. Look at the mess we are in right now! UK last to recover from the largest theft of funds seen since the last time the bankers put us here. Well done Dave!
Pulling out of Europe makes the UK look like backward, tempered kids. It’s just inconceivable.
"The current government with obsessed with Smart Meters, convinced that once we know our 1KW heater is consuming 1KW of energy we'll immediately turn it off"
I'm not a cyber-mug. Now't on me guv!
"Developers can allow users to log into their applications using Twitter or Facebook using the OAuth authentication standard - which saves the user time as well as minimising the number of account login credentials he or she needs to remember. But certain miscreants are abusing the security feature to implement workarounds which violate users' privacy."
Good! I hate it when people try to cut corners.
Re: Pot, kettle
"How can MS say it's the fault of the OEM's for not producing hardware at launch when they're only shipping their own Surface Pro in February?"
Cause Ballmer is a w*nker with no idea. He'll bring them down. Get rid now.
I stil like windows. I get what they have done with the start screen, some how, 1,000,000's have missed it.
Too stuck in their ways to change.
Re: Consumers don't want it.
"consumers are voting with their wallets"
Of course, because the consumer market has always been their largest??
Ballmer can't bully the makers!
of course they do!
That led display doesn't run itself.
Re: More proof
"More proof - Sheeple can be led most anywhere."
the AC can not be justified, ever, but I have to say well done for highlighting what most can not see.
Re: Why this video works...
"Americans love an easy dance craze (usually so they can do something at weddings). Gangnam Style's simple dance moves can be easily copied (see also The Electric Side, All the Single Ladies, and the Chicken Dance- otherwise known as the Birdie Song to us over here)."
It ain't just the 'cains that love easy dance crazes. Dads have to have something to attempt to dance to.
You know your a pleb when you enjoy this shite.
Every year the Plebs go crazy for generic crap.
This is it!
Re: If this happens
"how long until these companies go "This is too expensive" and shift their business elsewhere?"
You make £1M and pay 20% tax.
You decide "this is too expensive" and move your operation. Lost jobs, lost revenue. Yeah?
Lost customers, the market in which you earned £1M is no longer open to you.
So your decision to move your operation elsewhere cost you 100% and not 20%.
Re: Re Capt Blue Bear
"whilst my brother, who effectively worked for the Government, has pots of money"
AH! I see! That's where the truth lies.
Re: We are not doing anything illegal or immoral
This whole Jesus/religious story you are preaching is fiction! Let’s stick to the facts and not waffle on about wastage or how tax is spent in ways you do not approve of.
Schmit and his kind need to be brought back to earth, because they are definitely not living on this planet.
Avoiding tax is no different than stealing from you. Tax pays for our public services. No tax, no public services.
I was raised believing that we must pay our own way. There is NO ONE out there with responsibility for your care. You work, you pay your tax, and you consume public services. Schmitz et all need to rethink their position and pay their fair share.
Morality isn't dictated by the bible (what a farfetched piece of literature that is), it is dictated to us by what we feel is right or wrong. No one would say that rape was a moral act. Tax avoidance is just as immoral. The majority of sane people believe that.
Trying to avoid your burden doesn't make you clever; it makes you anti-social and a SPONGE, a drain on society. These actions make you lower than a snakes cock.
Re: what we all love.... I <3 BOOBS!
What the F is all this shit about?
What a twat!
"T&Cs, which says users will not use the service “To post or transmit, or cause to be posted or transmitted, any Content that is libellous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, offensive, profane, or that infringes any copyright or other right of any person;”
Apples T&C's mean you can't use your phone for any kind of fun, unless you think facebook updating, twattering or downloading 1000's of fart app is fun.
Parents are responsible for censoring the web.
Why haven't they turned on protections such as a blocker at the carrier level?
There are numerous solutions available, but parents haven't got a clue!
They are solely to blame.
I'm sick of hearing the same old shite on the site.
WinPhone8 is great. I don’t care that the world is full of sheepish "people" who have no opinion of their own, following the crowd and waffling the same crap time and time again, with 99% not having any hands on experience.
The first person to mention apps needs killed. Who cares the Crapple App store has thousands of USELESS and CRAPPY apps? A few useful apps is all one needs.
Skytech and the college were extremely embarrassed by the affair.
He should have known not to go anywhere near it once he'd reported it, and certainly not check that the hole had been sorted. That was not his responsibility.
Still, expelling him is too severe and clearly demonstrates just how embarrassed Skytech and the college were. No one likes to have their weaknesses highlighted, especially by a student.
"Humans like sitting down, the connected chair cometh I reckon.
Ive is at it right now."
It'll be a pile 'o shite then.
Re: You have got to be kidding
"Google rings would really single you out as a nerd and a plonker, flash it in a bar 'hi babe I'm connected' will probably single you out as the guy to avoid. You will never have sex and you will be alone for the rest of your life."
"does nothing to remove infections from compromised drones - which are, don't forget, innocent users' Windows PCs."
Innocent users? They are not innocent.
Ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law.
If these "innocent users" kept their PCs up to date and knew how to use the internet, thoses botnets would not take hold and cause disruption for everyone.
Innocent my arse.
I hate hypocrites
The kiddies watching the tweenies would not have a clue what all the fuss daddy was making was about.
Too many "think of the children" around.
Shame they don't take that stance when it comes to protecting them from drunken and violent daddies.
We regularly hear that the app stores are the driving force behind mobile OS's.
Lovely phone, but no apps, ain't going to go down well.
Only sad, fopish, iFannys would tell their "i"device they love siri.
