The judge should ... put all of Samsung and Apple patents in the public domain
Yeah and maybe demand they give all their phones away for free.

This is like Terry Pratchett's assertion that the rich can live for less than the poor because they can buy boots which cost 10X as much but last forever while the poor have to buy cheap ones that only last a year or two?
If you hard-boil them then it's a whole other sandwich - equally toast and fried/poached/scrambled egg or even toast & soldiers.
However I hope your loaf doesn't go mouldy...
Yeah who'd have thought Google would be as evil as to try and make money from their software.
Sci-Fi has been suggesting that for decades, or at least that we'll speak a special dialect when conversing with computers.
You probably should stay off the internet if you're that paranoid.
It's quite amazing Apple have damn near half the entire smartphone market in the US.
Normal people do not buy a phone based a on a list of statistics. It would be like buying a car purely for it's bhp and 0-60 rather than things like ride comfort, styling. etc.
Clearly you have insider knowledge of MS patent portfolio in order to state that MS are FALSELY claiming people owe them money?
Surely everyone puts a screen protector on their pricey smartphone anyway so the smeariness issue is moot?
I'm very tempted to upgrade from my 610 but I guess I'll wait a bit. At this end of the market, it does sound a very good deal - for a basic smartphone apps are less of an issue I would imagine too since that's not what we want a budget phone for.
Without going off?
If the game's costing $8, it's not too unreasonable to buy it on a whim if reviews are OK (are there any?)
Loads of people who would buy a full version if they had no other choice, would still pirate a free copy. That doesn't mean every pirate copy is a lost sale, more the reverse - people used to pursue cheap imports in the old days in the same way.
Those who simply want to pirate will not buy games, but many genuine would-be buyers are lost when a free copy is so easy to get.
Making it hard to spot you're wearing them is a way off but you can already buy a hidden camera that lives in a button if you want to.
If you wear them when naked it will be able to tell if you do...
Yeah, I mean your Android phone is just a constant barrage of targeted advertising, all over the homescreen, during phone and video calls, etc.
Glass is just another Android device.
WP is objectively a great OS, certainly not pants. People who don't know what an OS is probably shouldn't use the term.
There were rumours the PS4 would be like that too. They are merely rumours.
For social justice surely.
You need to learn about the reduced section and when the fill it up. I know a married couple who lived off £10 for their groceries as their regular life, and it wasn't even like they were just surviving, they could rustle up quite nice meals.
"By living off just £1 per day for food for 5 days, you will be bringing to life the direct experiences of the 1.4 billion people currently living in extreme poverty and helping to make real change."
In many of the poorest countries, £1 would buy you 3 meals... hell in some countries you could buy 3 beers with £1!
Maybe that's how you treat your pets, but not the rest of us.
Don't be silly. He has such an important life, those 20s could be used posting a sarcastic comment on the internet. People need to live more relaxed lives...
Isn't the point that you don't have to load an app?
How often do you see people paying with their phones? I never saw anyone... barely see anyone using NFC on their CC either although it's handy in MCDonald since small payments need no pin.
I never really understood why Amazon have their own branded credit card. It doesn't seem to fit in with their other products and they seem relatively focused on their target markets (unlike Tesco for example). Other than a bit of extra cash, is there some good business logic for doing this?
You mean shifting from crummy local Windows infrastructure to scalable, efficient open-source stack?
When Ford buy all the showrooms and prevent any builders buying new ones, wait and see.
Might is right eh?
String/rope/wire routinely hold hundreds of Kg and things costing far more - the mast on a yacht for instance.
Eunuchs have historically been employed in brothels and harems, since they can be trusted not to touch the merchandise.
I think they're both equally asinine.
Great objective reporting...
Easy to say, harder to do when you're talking about big amounts of data. Even if you have a copy, getting it into another setup is a big job because data volume has increased far faster than upload speeds.
They could but they make tons of money from AWS as well. It would not do MS any good if their AWS customers got huge price hikes because migrating to Azure might be no easier than porting to Linux and staying on AWS without needing to migrate data.
It's anti-competitive to lower their prices?
It's a bit low but I could do with the cash if he promises not to talk too much.
Maybe he doesn't think it's right he should kow-tow to other's customs, that is hardly an unusual view amongst nerds - as is general contempt for social convention.
I never said it was perfect, only that there are possibilities here. In theory clever software could detect things with some degree of usefulness, it doesn't have to be perfect.
(in a techy marketing way at least)
Like seeing what you're watching based on your hashtags and tailoring ads for stuff in the show or deemed likely to be of interest. Advertising tailored to you based on what you're doing RIGHT NOW is pretty powerful potentially.
£5.99 is the monthly subscription, HoC just became available like every other show.
They make it easy to cancel though. You don't have to phone some pushy salesman to get them to allow you to cancel, which is my pet peeve for free trials. Not as good as those trials who let you pre-select not to pay when you sign up, but not bad.
Before people feel the need to tell us how streaming doesn't suit their needs, can I just jump in and say we already know that, and you can save your time.
Laptops seem the ideal place for hybrid drives, which appear to work wonderfully well.
Yes I wasn't being sarcastic... if you are happy with cheap bulky laptops then good for you but there's no need to tell the world you don't like slimline versions. I would rather spend £500 than £1500 myself but so what, both are available.
FB is compatible with playing outside and using emails but it would be a pretty crap parent who deliberately tried to stop their kid being up to speed with this decade's technology. Just because you don't get it... your parents probably thought having a personal stereo was equally terrible.
Is this just the same old "only stupid people use FB" dross that you felt compelled to spew, or a specific critique on Home?
If I was a big FB user - it was the main thing I did on my phone - I'd probably welcome better integration.
As for iOS, you are right BUT sometimes big players get special rules/exceptions, for instance WP has built-in Twitter/FB/etc functionality (which you can ignore). It is unlikely IMO though.
Sorry Dave but it's a good job you are a wage slave rather than an entrepreneur. You just have no clue
a)You get to earn about £10k tax-free. That could cover your expenses to work like travel and clothes, meaning you are then taxed on 'profit'.
b)Equating a job and a company is asinine in the first place.
c)"A billion dollar company IS making massive profits, or it is on the way out anyway." Balls it is. A $1bn company making profits of $100m is not any more profitable than a £1m company making profits of £100k.
d)Some companies run on a margin of say 10% - they manufacture and sell on so they have vast costs and thus very high turnover without that big profits. Others have margins of 70% or more if they are a service company. If you tax on turnover, you kill any company which actually makes anything.
