Any company who wants their people to sit at their PC and actually work rather than "Being social" will avoid Win 8 like the plague.
If Sci-Fi films have not been lying to us, then his skull will be the first to be crushed under the metal heel of a marauding, plasma rifle wielding, kill-bot.
If politicians started treating our tax money with respect instead of dabbling in derivatives and spotty mortgage plans, maybe they would not be so desperate about having to get funds.
Five gets you a tenner that they will mismanage any funds they do track down.
Strength of character will always triumph.
Well done you.
"one wonders if yet another mistake has been made that will cost the US in the long run."
America is shooting itself in the foot so often lately that you have to wonder just what sort of idiocy is around the corner.
A judge who actually uses common sense!
Excuse me, but I need to keep my eye on the window. The pigs will be flying by at anytime now.
So one of the biggest PC manufacturers may stop making PC's?
Well, Nokia stopped making their own phones and look how well that worked out for them.
Google should adopt a system of open sourcing any code they feel is unworthy of commercialization. If they kill a project, then open source it for the masses. Just because they can't make it work, does not mean someone else can't.
Reporting on a company that refuses to call you back must have been the biggest challenge a reporter could face. Yet, you handled it well and still got the facts out there.
All the best in your future endeavours.
The only acceptable setting for these types of things is OFF until I decide to turn them on.
Don't know why they were surprised it landed in the UK. The TARDIS always lands there.
"politicians blamed IntechGeoTrans for not sorting out the problem, but the company claimed it inherited a system in a state of chronic disrepair."
Funny, but that's exactly what politicians say when they take over from an opposing party. Can't they accept their own form of BS?
33 seconds in shows what strike six looks like.
I am concerned for the person wearing it when it catches fire. All Apple products do eventually.
I don't recall Mr. Cook dropping any law suits since he took over as Apple CEO in Aug 2011.
He could have calmed tensions post-Steve and negotiated with Samsung with mutually beneficial terms. Instead he continued, and some would argue increased, the vitriol.
I bet the hackers were on the hunt for another kind of bush.
During the RIM meltdown last year we invested in GOOD Technology that supports iPhones and Androids. One of the things they are raving about in the new phone is seperation of business and personal email. This is already part of GOOD and we use it effortlessly.
Even if the BB10 is perfect (and from what I see, it isn't) we are not going back to BB devices. Too little too late, I am afraid.
To the best of my knowledge, Microsoft corporate web servers still run on UNIX. If Microsoft cannot trust their own OS using IIS to run their own public facing web site, then why should I?
Gentlemen, it is now Pub O'clock. Have a decent weekend.
That's OK, we can use Facebooks search engine to...
Oh, right. Never mind.
...and the encryption key for the archives are kept on a £1 USB key.
"The aircraft has an inert gas system in the cargo hold to counter fire, but the FAA decided similar systems weren't necessary for other areas of the aircraft."
So, of course, the airlines assumed that fire can only break out in areas with fire extinguishers. Being at 35,000 feet is a tad inconvenient for those folks stuck in the back end.
Those who forget history, are cursed to relive it.
Can't we all just get along...?
I suspect a Google vs. Microsoft war in the mobile phone arena would be similar in scale to China vs. Tibet.

As long as there is an image of Morena Baccarin down the side like an old US WW2 bomber I will support the program.

If you actually read the article, it is a balanced overview giving KIM.DOT.COM's version of the story. The truth always lies between the versions supplied by both sides.
"Current Xper IM systems do not use this version of software," a Philips spokesman told Dark Reading.
"Current" meaning anything coming off the assembly line from now since they patched the hole last last night.
If the UK Gov keeps turning the tax screws you can expect a curtailment of such investments in the future.
As a side note, has anyone experienced flipping on a light to see cockroaches scramble for cover?
OCP sounds like something from Robocop.
"I'd buy that for a dollar!"
Was $30.64 at opening this morning in anticipation of the announcement. It is now falling back down since the press conference. Says it all really.
Re: New record for High-Altitute Ballooning?
Members of the SPB have been investigating the advantages of blow up technology for many years. Usually after too many brewski's in Soho.
Boffins. Is there anything they can't do?
They turned it off and on again.
Hated being forced to use UPlay to play games and I refused to buy any game requiring UPlay due to this. Glad I didn't.
Steve Jobs shouted worse things, more often and he is considered a god to some.
Linus is right. Only his outbursts are reported. However, they are usually justified and grounded in reality.
I think asking Apple to pay 53% more than what the company is actually worth is appropriate.
After all, Apple charges their customers unreasonable amounts as well.
'Software patents' should be considered what they have been for years, copyrighted code. If you write a piece of software that does something and I do the same thing independantly they should both be allowed. If I copy your code to do my project that is a copyright infraction and I should be punished.
Apple (et al) are pushing for software patents to cover concepts and ideas instead of specific code copyrights. Why? It comes down to the merger doctrine which essentially says copyrights cannot cover ideas. This was reinforced by the Apple V. Microsoft GUI law suit where the courts decided "look and feel" cannot be copyrighted.
So here they are doing it with patents instead. No software patent should stand.
Only goes to show, encryption delays access to information. It can never stop access due to its very nature.
"Whatever's dampening Ethernet switch sales is in full effect in the United States, China, India, and Western Europe. Latin America, Japan, Central Europe and Eastern Europe had single-digit Ethernet switch revenue bumps, but sales in Asia-Pacific (not counting Japan) were down 3.5 per cent year-on-year; in the United States revenue slipped 6.4 per cent and in Western Europe it was even worse with a 10 per cent decline."
Whatever's dampening? I guess the article author has not experienced the global financial melt-down of late. Hate to break it to them, but all sales are down save for doomsday bunker supplies. Those are booming.
Fair and reasonable judgements coming down from a California court at long last? Wow...
BTW, saw the Google Nexus 10 this morning. What a machine. If you are looking for the best Android tab on the market, start there. Better res than a iPad Retina to start.
Re: I dunno
@pixl97 - Yes, it would. Burglars have been suffering back strain from carrying the larger 3.5" equipped DVR's out the back window. The slimmer drive would mean they can now carry three units out to the van instead of one.
Speaking as someone who has been involved in a military air crash I can tell you coffee cups made a horrible dent in skulls when moving at speed. Keeping bags, purses, music players, tablets and other crap people bring on-board secure is common sense for when the excrement strikes the rotating impeller.
Re: Apple Share Price ....
AAPL Stock Price on Jan 1st, 2012: $401.44 (Adjusted Close)
AAPL Stock Price on Dec 13, 2012: $529.69 (Adjusted Close)
Total gain: $128.25 per share for the year to date.
iPhone 5 released 21 Sep 2012. AAPL Stock price on that day was $696.91 (Adjusted close)
As shown above, AAPL stock closed yesterday at $529.69. Total loss per share since iPhone5 intro of $167.22
Given there are 940.69 million shares, that loss equates to $157,302,181,800. 157 Billion dollars is one quarter of their company value gone in two months. I see no reason why the stock price will not continue to decline as their customer base dries up.

Folks, no technology, platform or software is secure if used inappropriately.
