By paying his corporation tax? Or by going back in time and changing his father's tax planning?
No doubt you have full copies of his tax records to indicate he is not a person but a corporation paying VAT in Luxembourg?
Re: The iWatch is coming! Ergo The Microsoft Windows Watch 8 Pro is coming!
You don't need to upgrade a WP7 phone, you just wait a year for the free upgrade. Like 95% of Android users in fact. The only people who reliably upgrade their mobile OS in bulk are iPhone users because Apple virtually force you to.
But clearly the point is, the circuit can be killed so the strategy works!
Re: Windows 8 computers are safe
You still used a hashtag.
prompted a flood of established users to flee
Or less politely, idiots.
Re: Windows 8 computers are safe
If we've started putting hashtags in comments, that's a new low.
Re: "Inspire the Next Generation"
Children are the next generation of adults you silly man.
That may indeed be you. Having your own company means you only need to take money out as needed so you can avoid seeing your personal bank balance getting so large you start frittering it away.
Looks like you got mentioned:
Re: Whats the point of a touch UI on a desktop?
People probably said the same about the mouse and GUIs once ;)
Actually, some of the Linuxtards on these forums probably STILL say it.
Windows 7 sucks. It seems good to ... have not stepped outside the Windows microcosm
I've used OSX 10.5->10.8 a fair bit and I still think Win 7 is better than OSX.
It's still sales for MS. Many businesses skip a version anyway to save time & money, as long as they are buying Windows what does MS care... and many businesses will wait 1-2 years for issues to be discovered and fixed so we might be on 8.1/Blue by then and find they start switching at this point.
Who knows, if MS are going the Blue route maybe a business edition will allow even more of the Mettro stuff to be turned off as a policy?
more trouble than it's worth
Get your contracts reviewed and insurance against investigations through PCG and you're set. Many also get PI cover.
Definitely still worth going Ltd.
If NPAPI is proprietary how come it is supported in WebKit/Chrome and was even supported in older IE.
Not being able to grasp the point under discussion and going off on a technical tangent is a typical nerd failing. Only nerds would find it ambiguous what was being discussed.
And we do have a standard for running native code on different platforms - it's called an application. No reason to run it through the browser at all, unless of course you are trying to turn the browser into the OS and show that you don't need anything else... hardly a coincidence it's Google doing this.
Having said that, plugins are a pig and NPAPI is pretty ancient, but browsers are moving away from plugins already.
Love the downvotes for what are entirely objective comments, based on the entirely factual nature of the iPad Vs Pro hardware.
Re: 'the launch should have PayPal and its ilk very worried indeed'
No. All they have to do is get businesses using it and people will learn quickly.
Well done for missing the point, nobody said NaCl and ActiveX are alike technically (I know exactly what an ActiveX or NPAPI plugin is since I've written one). Rather that they are both attempts by dominant browsers to force standards on the world.
So now we'll know exactly what it is that wipes us out
Re: Map Of Reality scale 1:1
It's almost like if you want an amazing service, you need to give something back.
It is a fair comparison, although I'm not sure other browsers were/are allowed to implement ActiveX even if they wanted to? PNaCl seems a dumb idea to me, you could just write a desktop app, so I can't seem other browsers wanting it really. It's technically very cool but I don't want every app to be inside the browser.
Pro is a whole lot more hardware for your money than iPad. Plug in your monitor and keyboard and it is a real computer.
Strong anticipation that it will FAIL maybe
Loads of people seem genuinely interested in Surface PRO, while simultaneously laughing at Surface RT.
Windows 8 has the biggest ecosystem on the planet, apart possibly from Windows 7.
how the privacy of netizens USING the gizmo will be protected.
How is that an issue... it's just another Android device like your smartphone. The difference is surely about the privacy of those in FRONT of the glasses, not those BEHIND?
If they can roll it out to other nations this really could scare PayPal... to get money to people overseas PP is often the easiest (and even cheapest) way, but in many countries PP isn't able to link to local bank accounts. If Google can overcome that issue, you could see freelancers switching to it in droves.
It is processed rather than being dumped straight on, generally speaking. Raw human sewage is not used due to disease risk.
Re: Not so sweet
If you like O2 and hate Sky surely you should want Sky to get gouged for the extra £20m?
Anyway I don't care about that, free BB is a great deal so why cut of my nose to spite my face?
Re: Another Plusnet refugee
The BBC fractured the rights, they could just have let it go like they do other things costing too much.
Re: Murdoch may be evil
A company is a legal entity.
Why would O2 be desperate to keep you when they're losing the contract? Free BB & £200 on my mobile account is a brilliant deal for a 12 month contract which Sky will honour, after which I'll either leave or expect Sky to offer some crazy good deal to keep ex-O2 customers.
Re: An El Reg survey?
Surely the results are very location dependent... we find O2 excellent for speed and stability but others find them slow and crap.
Re: Oh no!
O2 had unlimited usage and were charging £5.99 a month IIRC... hardly bad.
Re: I'm going
Haven't plus.net always been part of BT? They are consistently #1 in customer satisfaction polls year after year.
Sums up the Reg audience
Google complain on behalf of content creators, Google who are famous for putting millions of books online without permission, and everyone sides with them because the other party is MS.
Well done everybody.
Not leaving, Murdoch not a factor
In fact we just moved house and I was anxious to get the new contract signed before the takeover was finalised because O2 offered me free broadband for the contract duration (12 months) AND £200 credit to my mobile account. They also said they expect Sky to honour the terms/price of existing contract terms so most likely we will stay with O2/Sky for the 12 months and then move to Plus.net who were the obvious choice until O2 made their free internet offer.
Re: great hardware... rubbish OS
We're not all teenagers who want to hear Gangnam Style or "someone with a 10" knob got a text" every 5 minutes.
there have been few major changes since 2009
A bit like MS Office then...
(Microsoft still doesn't support music sync over Wi-Fi.)
I'm sure Zune is always telling me I can set up my device for wireless updates.
Re: round objects
One assumes ecosystem == appstore? But many smartphone users are not very interested in apps, it is not something we all consider the main use of our phones... I have a few but mainly it's the web-browser and email I use.
