Re: Blinkers and cherry-picking
Exactly, I bet they think they're great because people are taking 30 seconds out of their work day to call them, I bet they think because people call them out so often that they must be right.
The opposite is the case on all counts, we mock them both because they are so petty, vindictive and childish.
Re: Another tiresome fingers-in-the-ears tirade
You seem to think Lewis and Orlowski actually read the comments and listen to feedback [as opposed to what they actually do, not read them and post what they feel like]. I wonder if they are in fact the same keyboard warrior, screaming brainless drivel at all who have open minds.
You know announcing a Seagate partner on the same day an Apple hard drive failure rate of 1% was announced is the exact opposite way to poke fun at the issue.
Or the Apple community, there isn't any time for romance with all the Baristing going on. Not that there would be anyway.
Re: Every time...
You really think Orlowski is anything but an idiot?, he completely ignores the facts repeatedly and deletes anyone who disagrees with him, having had 4 comments deleted on his posts for posting opinion with reasoned facts as to why I feel he is incorrect.
The man is a joke.
Well said Wil Wheaton. Funny fellow, well worth a read, certainly more relevant than any anon poster.
Re: Britain's IP laws...... We are all Criminals
I don't think this counted the payoffs politicians and courts receive in America, only looking at the exact letter of the law, which may explain how it ranks so highly, yet in reality is easily down with us. With the RIAA and MPAA paying out hundreds of thousands to buy their own justice.
Notice how on the positive side [America removed] it is largely countries on the grow, both technologically and intellectually like India, yet the bottom list shows countries in decline, like us in the UK.
They rolled the dice and it has come up as Snake Eyes.
Toodles RIM, it was great knowing you, then annoying, then absolutely intolerable.
See what I mean when I said the entire Pro-Apple anon poster thing is just one person who patrols dozens of tech sites.
I know people get paid a lot, but "Futurologist" is a horrible title, it just screams "False" though, like conspiracy theorists and such.
To think, there'll still be a hardcore of naive imbeciles who'll still buy into the chocolate factories lousy, blatantly incorrect lying propaganda.
Fine them massively, they absolutely deserve it for their guilt and condoning of this from the CEO down.
You'd think on a technology site there wouldn't be so many pathetically naive cretins, but alas here we are, yet again people like Mr. Young and Richard Jones keep posting, sad really.
This is supposed to be a growing, expansive and generally intelligent industry, yet the dregs are still plentiful.
Does anyone else think people like Boris S and the Anon posters that poison every thread about "COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS" are just paid trolls who spend time 24/7 indexing these types of posts on dozens of sites and blogs.
Actual people don't actually hold those kinds of opinions, they're paid PR slutpuppies, and nothing of value.
Do we get a final act with people dancing around him with different coloured crystals instead of having proper treatment?
Go FTC, please remind Google that they have to obey the law and not steal information without user consent and conduct business anti-competitively.
Hopefully they can [finally] do something about these companies ignoring the law.
Re: Just as the best phone mankind has ever seen gets announced next week!
But Apple do have rounded corners and people in a big glass shop who fawn over you when you enter, enforcing the loner, dorkish sad sack stereotype that absolutely exists among the cult.
I have an awesome idea.
"We're suffering a brain drain and a widening skill gap in technology, specifically in IT, so we must cut CompSci funding and put it into boneheads playing a shitty version of proper rugby"
Watch out China, the Florida Quarterbacks with Ha><><0R your Gibsons.
"Same reason why folks watch Fox news here ."
Because they're racist and are annoyed that intelligent society has largely progressed beyond such things so instead cling onto the idea of Political Correctness instead?
Re: what i dont get...
He has a massive stake in Fox News so obviously he's shit in the USA, given that FN are the news equivalent of bowel cancer for deception, lying and attacking America.
It's a shame he's lived three decades longer than his welcome.
Re: If it would be
Apple has a near monopoly on stupid consumers so it wouldn't surprise me either.
Welcome to 2007 Microsoft. Awesome move by the giant, pioneering a service nobody wants, has no reason to use and will be region specific.
Get the Metro and Ribbon interface on it and I guarantee it will sell like a glass of legionnaires disease.
George C. Scott in collusion with the Illuminati, in connection with Josef Fritzl, in league with the Decepticons, who have very close ties to Nestle who are clearly in bed with Dwight Eisenhower who is financially supported by a grant from the Chubb group.
El Reg can you please correct the mistake in your headline and article please.
From blatant fraud in Australia to ignoring Chinese patents and rulings to trying to ban competitors products everywhere on earth.
I will believe it when I see it, so far Cook you have proven to be thoroughly Jobsian.
Re: Essays on their own are the problem?
Lazy teachers and lecturers too busy protesting their own pensions then justifying their jobs. Self serving at its most damaging extreme.
If I had that money I'd be balls deep in some serious patent litigation.
E-Mails cause paedophilia. FACT.
Therefore everyone sending them is guilty until proven innocent, the records lost, rendition for 4 years in Libya, then an enquiry which will prove your guilt.
Has anyone questioned why he is still protesting his innocence despite being absolutely guilty and completely implicit to everything from hacking dead girls cellphones to harassing dozens of others?
The grandstanding is hilarious. Sean O'Connor et al are a right good bunch, keep it up lads, you sound like the lone Daily Heil reader at a conference of legitimately intelligent people who keeps yelling fundamentally moronic things and getting laughs at first and then people feeling slightly embarrassed when they realise that's what you do think.
Looks pretty legit, it'd be nice to see him take them all to the cleaners, Apple especially though.
Do you ever notice that those lunatic religious sorts who hurl abuse at people in the streets get "bless" and a hail mary pass on their bigotry but people asking for fair and equitable and reasonable treatment from society are accused of "PUSHING IT INTO FACES" like feminism and lgbt rights, neither of which is pushy at all yet always heralded as so while religious nutters who want to inflict pain on people get away with it.
Good. Your photos are terrible anyway.
Didn't realise there were so many mugs perusing the tech sites. Apple must be thankful there's millions of Charles E's out there.
Re: Calm down
But, and this is a big but. The emperor was always evil, and his intentions were always the same, an argument could be made that those corrupted are worse because they knew the right path before choosing the dark side.
It's a big issue to go into.
