Foxconn: Our hiring freeze has nothing to do with iPhone 5

Suicide Nets

With all the new suicide nets, maybe they do not need to hire new employees at such a great pace. Just recycle the jumpers instead of replacing.

Company you never heard of builds 3.4 petaflops super for DOE

Supermicro motherboards. I think I would pass on that. I have had 3 GPU servers built with Supermicro boards and all 3 needed the motherboards replaced before I could get them to boot reliably.

You mean an nicer artist's rendition. The Reg image is not a direct image. At least the Independent has the original data image.

YouTube app wrenched from next Apple iPhones, iPads

paulej72

No longer needed

Why would Apple want to support the YouTube app anymore. When iOS first came out Google did not have HTM5 working with YouTube so any iOS device needed a special app to be able to play the videos since Flash was not available. Now Apple is better off not redirecting YouTube anymore since it work and gives the users a better experience as they will not have to wait for another app to start before they can see the latest lolcat.

Now will they go and arrest the girl for having taken child pornography pictures? Or how about and ASBO?

Thumb Up

Thanks

I looked for this page and never found it. Verizon's site sucks. I am updating now. Hopefully I will not regret it.

I am still wating for 6

I have a 9650 that is running 5 and I am still waiting for 6. Verizon or RIM have not made it available for my phone yet. I probably be at the end of my 2 years before I see any of the newer versions.

Microsoft rallies IE6 death squads

paulej72

34.5%

This is probably other browsers using IE6s browser string so that sites will be rendered without the dreaded please use IE6 junk. I bet there are a bunch of Chinese Browsers based on other technologies that all say they are IE6.

TiVo calls time on ageing set-tops

paulej72
Joke

Lifetime Service

You all did get "Lifetime" subscriptions. You failed to notice that "Lifetime" meant the lifetime of the service which TiVo just killed.

I always figure "lifetime" means the the lifetime of the device which could be 5 minutes.

Feeler Gauges

Also if they are screwed together you can arrange several adjacent to each other to use as custom sized gauge.

PS: we need a light bulb icon for those eureka moments.

Microsoft finally says adios to Autorun

U3 should still work

Paul 172

U3 autorun will still work as U3 sets part of the drive to look like a CD to the OS. The autorun is from this protected cd image if I remember correctly.

I would think that this could be used by a virus as well.

Apple preps CDMA-GSM 'World iPad'?

paulej72

Cheap parts

I think the reason we are seeing this is that it is getting easier to get radio modules that have both CDMA and GSM. If the part is the same size as older versions and cheap enough, why not have a iPad/iPhone that can do it all.
