and dont forget the 30 years war either. (catholicism vs protestantism/lutherism
Communism is a religion
you forgot Muslim expansionism and the Crusades.

Re: British TV drama is NOT crap, merely rarer than hen's teeth
I am so glad to see that someone else shares my distaste for Torchwood's gayness. Especially when they converted Ianto from weird sexual taste (Cyberwoman) to weirder (Cap'n Jack).
OTOH, I have enjoyed both seasons of Sherlock (all 6 episodes!) and have recently enjoyed the complete David Tenneant years of Dr Who and am working my way through the 1st Matt Smith series.
Re: "never letting your kids be photographed in a uniform of any sort"
Wouldn't it be better to simply not post the pics on the various social media sites?
There have been reports that Huawei raided NorTel's servers stealing all their IP, so yeah, I'd call them a thief? Have you not noticed that a huge amount of counterfeit goods comes out of china? So yeah, I'd trust them as far as I could toss the whole country.
I'd guess that's why they call it Rocket Science
let me get this straight
These companies allowed their patents to be included in a standard, and they were included on the basis FRAND. The companies then demanded a higher license fee from certain companies and complained when they didnt get it.
If you agree to allow your patent to be included in a standard on a FRAND, you should set your royalty at a certain amount and it should be the same, and remain the same for everyone who uses that standard, no matter how deep the other pockets are.
If you are not happy with that either dont allow your patent to be included or dont whine about it afterwards.
I am amazed at how far behind the times the UK is.
I dont think Canada Post has any dedicated post offices anymore, they've contracted it out. It's hard enough to find a mailbox to post a letter. However, pretty much every standalone pharmacy has a Canada Post outlet, many with delivery boxes for rent so you can use them as your mailing address. Each of them is generally open until 9pm and on Saturdays, and most of them on Sundays.
If you are not home when delivery occurs, then they leave a note which says when it will be available for pickup and where. I've never seen a line up more than 5 people long for pickup or drop off.
Re: Depends on the claim
Is RRP the same as MSRP - manufacturer's suggested retail price?
22.5 million dollars? The US debt is in the TRILLIONS, that's an extra 6 zeros behind 1 million.
this is 22.5 million dollars:
This is 1 Trillion
22.5 million dollars is a drop in the bucket for the US's financial problems.

250 Grams is actually 0.55066079295154185022026431718062 Lbs, that is a bit over 1/2 lb, not 1/4 pound.
"After the bitter civil war in China ended in 1949, the nationalist faction retreated back to Taiwan, but no peace treaty was ever signed between the two sides and many on the Communist-ruled mainland still regards the island as their own."
Surely, by the same logic, the Island government could consider the mainland as their own as well?

so wot's "Wcitleaks" then?
Also, if YouTube shows up faster than other sites isn't that just an indication that Google is paying for a bigger pipe to access the internet?

Yeah, see "The Mouse on the Moon"

Re: Double standards
Wow, 1 for you and 30 for me? That's way worse than 1 for you and 19 for me. There could be a song in that.
even after the IPO, F***berg will be the largest/controlling shareholder( over 50%), so the board will do whatever he wants or it will be replaced. and if the majority of the shareholder wants something, he gets it.

so what's the difference between these offerings and megaupload?
Re: Wide of the mark?
My son was in the same situation. I was glad that he discussed it with me before proceeding to deposit the cheque and that I was able to convince him it was a scam.
and not only that
but because the atomic time is disconnected from the UTC, approximately 528000 years after that, a new Pope Gregory will have to re-adjust our dates by 11 days again.
Have any of the other tablets managed to achieve this?
Apple is in the middle of the 2nd release of their tablet. Samsung, Asus, Acer and I am sure a lot of others have all released them, HP has one based on WEBOS. Have any of them acheived this? Nope.
The cryptographic engine is the key reason people buy RIM eqipment and this has shown that they can migrate it to a different OS.
The market for playbooks has just exploded.
Did anyone here hear about the G20 Thugs aka police who assaulted peaceful demonstrators in the Safe Demonstration area, and people who were standing around watching peaceful demonstrations? Yes, there were bad demonstrators dressed in black, but they were few and far between and certainly did not represent more than a tiny minority of those who were demonstrating. Cops were caught on film assaulting people and the other cops were "unable to identify them". Freedom of expression etc is fine as long as you don't piss off the authorities.
Pending other information
The article stated that it was stolen from his yacht.
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
basically, that way it possible for people to learn that there is a vulnerability and a patch available to correct the issue, should they not automatically do updates
Admittedly there will be many more who never do both
or because you have ,000's of apps that all have to be tested before you migrate anyone to >XP
I have no desire to lose my cell phone and end up with a $5,000 credit card bill.
Patents are supposed to be a government granted monopoly over the specific implementation of an idea.

If you're smilin' you ain't panicin'
Municipalities surrounding Vancouver are sending in Safety Inspectors to review excessive use of electricity in homes. Usually with police officers sitting outside in their police cars. if they "notice" any evidence of illegal activity they can then go outside and report this information to the police, who immediately bust the homeowner. If there is no Pot found, then the town charges the homeowner for the inspection. Upto $5200 'cost recovery' for a 1/4 hour of work.
Indications of illegal cultivation include spilled soil or fertilizer, empty rooms (it was preped to be painted for a soon-to-arrive baby) and other items.
Also, if I were a pot grower, I would keep guinea pigs in a shed, heat them excessively and after the cops came and vetted the place, switch to growing pot.

It is a limitiation to Governments
An acquaintance of mine was the manager of a Vancouver outlet for a major electronics retailer. Two of his biggest complaints were "buyers' remorse" whereby the customer bought an expensive item, took it home and either his wife forced him to return it, "you spent how much on that?" or he realized that he had indeed spent too much on the item. The second was purchases of GPS units on Friday, followed by their return on Monday. Restocking fees, which the Owner refused to contemplate, would have gone a long way to eliminate these behaviours.
This is a Ctrl-C title
Many places judge the intention rather than the fact. In Canada it is unlawful for someone to depict someone underage in porn, even if the person doing the depiction is over the age of consent. If a reasonable person were to view the image and come to a reasonable belief in it's accuracy, that is all that counts.
Don't European networks have peering agreements? If the networks are receiving a substantially higher level of traffic than they are sending, then surely it is not unreasonable for them to bill the transmitting networks for that overage without regard to the source of that overage?
Big Bro 'cause he's watching what we watch.
Not sure what evidence the pizza was
Reading the article, I fail to see what evidence the Pizza order represented. The police arrived at the suspect's home - not the site of the crime, so they already knew he lived there. The pizza was of no use proving that he actually lived there. The suspect had already decamped, so the pizza supplied no information as to his present whereabouts. So what's the point?
Welcome to Walkerton On
Any one interested in this process should review what happened in Walkerton, Ontario where farm runoff infected the watersupply and a breakdown in the management of the watersupply caused half the population to fall ill and the deaths of 7 people.
This is a BAD idea.
Re: Doesn't that cut both ways?
I think that you are misinterpreting Lewis's point - if the point of buying A400Ms is to avoid dependency on supplies of American parts for the Boeing aircraft, then this is a fail because there is so much American content in the A400Ms. Additionally, those American parts are subject to American Export controls - which will limit the foreign governments that the aircraft can be sold to.
eliminate the "eating pork meat" and the rest of your frowned upon list would work (except possibly a plumber's vertical smile :) )

It's ok when a US patent troll goes after a Canadian company, but a Canadian troll going after a US company...

Please recheck your arithmetic 560/60 = 9.33mi/l, or 6.66 L/100Km - about the same as my 4cyl Corolla on the highway.

I used one of those to work on a PDP-11/45
it isn't 45!
The western boundery between Canada and the United States is the 49th Parallel. East of Manitoba it presses much farther south. Indeed most of the population of Ontario lives south of 45 (which passes through, among other places, Bracebridge Ontario, home of Santa's Village).
