the other 70% are what Google and Bing want you to see not what you are searching for
Words fail me to describe how stupid you just made yourself look. You've completely failed to understand the entire premise of a search engine.
What happened is that you don't know what it means, apparently.
Re: Great Lesson
It still seems odd then this would be one mega-suite, rather than one for the IPO and one for the information non-disclosure. They seem very different things.
Re: Great Lesson
If the IPO hadn't broken they might well have made a decent 1-day trade.
Serious question before all the FB haters wade in.... why is/would FB itself be liable for failures in actually processing the IPO and making trades through the exchange?

Re: @AM @Thomas4
Which is pretty stupid, considering that an estimated 55% of the US is into gaming in some degree.
What a great strategy: Let's find something that the majority of the country like and then alienate that part of the electorate.
Liking gaming and liking MMOs are very different. Liking gaming and wanting a politician to spend hours a day on WoW are very different.
Re: Yeah. Right.
What's ethernet got to do with it? We don't have ethernet connections to our ISPs and it's clear online streaming is where the people at the top want things to go.
Re: 4k Monitors
The new MBP monitors are close to 4k so that's some definition of mass-market already. But since monitors always support a whole slew of resolutions I don't see them all moving to 4k en masse.
That bacon looks over-fatty to me, and too much of it!
Not had a toasted BS for ages though, tempting.

You don't even know it's not Nokia making the own-brand phone.
Re: Microsoft have come a LONG way in a short time
Yawn WP7.5 UI is pretty nice. I've got a phone using it AND an iOS device so I am actually entitled to compare unlike most here (Android I cannot comment on as I never used anything newer than 2.x)
Apple get away with it fine in iOS. Unless MS are alleged to use their position in desktop computing unfairly they are fine.
Note that MS don't have anywhere near a monopoly on browsing on Windows anymore, which surely puts them in a safer position against claims they are using their IE-desktop dominance unethically.
It'sa closed platform, there is nothing illegal with that. Closed systems have been around forever... games consoles don't even let you install software on them that's not approved centrally (without some messing about).
Mozilla developers describe as "streamlined, modern, and beautiful"
I thought Mozilla didn't Mike Metro?
I tried this a bit, it seemed a lot slower than using IE9 for some reason. And appeared to muck up presentation slightly.
I'm confused, am I supposed to go to the "give it a go" page from my PC or browse their on my Lumia phone?
Wouldn't an Air-based one be nicer?
Re: It looks nice
>>I'm not despoiling my fast, simple and beautiful machines with such an intrusive and bloated stack.
It would be terrible to use all those CPU cycles to make your life easier, I agree. What are they thinking, that computers exist to automate tasks or something?
It's almost like he didn't read the article.
Re: Successful as Silverwotsit
Silverlight is still gaining ground for video-streaming. Netflix uses it (a pretty damn massive user) and Blinkbox switched TO it only a month or two back.
Re: Dear Microsoft
But when we're using it in every other mainstream language it's nice you don't have to learn a whole new way to program just to make a crappy web-app.
Damn right. It's time they simply agree to support a new language natively in browsers rather than keep flogging ways to make using JS a bit less crap. The ECMA version in AS3 is pretty nice.
I'd love it if C# was chosen (the core functionality anyway) but I cannot see that happening.
Re: no thanks
I think I'll go with whichever is best thanks.

I'd like that with typical touch-screens. I miss tooltips!
Re: Song Great, Film Crap
The last couple of films have just been generic Bourne clones IMO.

Re: Is the love mutual?
You mean your OS can't run 32 bit apps in 64-bit mode? That's pretty tragic.
You'd think tech-savvy Linux users wouldn't be confused into thinking this was a privacy issue, since the overlords made it pretty clear they do the search and pass on the results. What was the comment... "you don't trust US? We have root already, you implicitly trust us"
What to do with it?
>>from a company that sells 5 million £500+ phones in three days?
When they sold 5 million phones in 3 days, their share price dropped. Last earnings release, they broke records but share prices fell because it wasn't as amazing a new record as predicted.
Quarterly earnings statement is October 15th. Trying to cover bad news?
No. I wouldn't watch it.
Re: Off Topic, regarding "Retina"
I haven't bought into the hype... I think the retina resolution on the iPad3 and MBP is already TOO HIGH. So while Apple probably did well to raise it higher than it was, trying to beat Apple isn't worthwhile... focus on adding more visible features.
Re: Off Topic, regarding "Retina"
Apple have arguably pushed it (DPI) to the level beyond which improving further is a bit pointless. And remember it's only on the phones others have caught up, which Apple brought in ages ago. iPad3 and new MBP DPI still smash the competition (I don't know it's particularly useful but it's one area Apple have a clear lead, still)
>>My, aren't the fanbois sensitive this morning...
I think it's more the fact that this joke is several months past its sell-by date.
Re: Nice photoframe?
Is Retina trademarked or anything? It doesn't seem to have a specific definition but does that prevent it being trademarked - I assume not?
Now games and video can suck the battery dry even faster. Soon we'll be looking back upon having to recharge every night as "the good old days".
Back to work in 1-2 weeks?
Prioritise your child you silly woman!
That sounds about right to me.
>>Um...how do you know it's Android fanboys? Seems like you have your own set of irrational prejudices...
You really didn't see the sarcasm?
I was just about to say the same - this thread just shows the hilarious nature of Android fanbois. And much as they like to claim they're simply "the educated ones", downvoting every comment about someone owning a WP device just shows they really ARE fanbois with just as little rational argument as the iTards.
Either that or they're Google shills. Yes, probably that.
So this will definitely NOT improve coverage then?

Maps with cruddy data that you can avoid with a different app or using Safari.
Getting hundreds of millions of people to uninstall in some unsupported fashion to an earlier version. Cue hordes of bricked devices and mass hysteria!

You're clearly a tasteless trucker who just wants as much meat for his £2 as possible.
