Re: good news about Microsoft?
Is C/C++ and Python an exotic dev language? Its using the oft used QT set for the interface elements... The DEV environment isnt that difficult, there are even multiple options. It did have a App store... I mean.. did you even USE this phone you are talking about?
Re: I want control
I know the N900 is, not sure about the N9 but I presume so. With the N900 Nokia was even kind enough to bind the x-terminal application to a shortcut(ctrl-shift-x).
Its pretty much Debian with a Hildon(desktop) layer on top.
... I have no words for my own failure. I must have read over it. Twice. My humble apology for confusing you, if I did as such.
You are correct James, strange that that is omitted in the main post though..
Re: And in the Microsoft World
... You think Microsoft is going to convert XP to ARM? And aim at a developers market that is largely based on Linux, thus they would also need to create their own toolchain? The development costs would be through the roof and profits probably rather low. They are a software company after all.
Exactly. I was wondering where the video-out was. To me this looks more like a Arduino on steroids then a replacement for the Raspberry PI, which has the advantage of being a whole computer with IO headers.
I dont think you are being downvoted for being correct, but for being wrong.
As far as I know the retailer is responsible for as long as the expected product lifetime. So if the product can be expected for 4 years then the retailer will have to deal with the warranty. They may send it back without giving you a replacement, but you can still send it through the retailer.
Also, wouldnt Corsair cover the postage costs? I know other product manufacturers do so, although I never have had to deal with Corsair warranty thus far.

And so is the internet! And roads, blasted roads used to transport booty! You know, lets just nuke society as a precautionary measure. No content, no humans, no piracy!
He didnt hack anything since its still his own property he is accessing.
Invasion of Privacy: You might be right there.
Copyright Infringement: I dont think so, he is the author of the images and thus he owns the copyright.
Threatening of Public Officials: I dont think he did, he only warned them of his own action, in no way did he wish/promise harm on said officials. Unless you mean exposing their inaction. Which really, if you are a public official then you can expect your actions to be scrutinized by the public.
Anyway yeah. Something might be dodgy, but still he has a stronger case against the suspect then the suspect against him. I dont know how the law regards taking photo's with your own equipment that has a recording indicator(laptops have one of those active lights) in the house of someone else. Take note that the suspect has taken the equipment in himself and was aware of the possibility of recording(taped over webcam at first). I wonder if the removal of tape indicate consent?
Not a lawyer so its all a wild geus, I'll as a mate of mine that is.
No tulips this year
So far the flower fields have been dry and arid looking(well everything has in the surrounding area) due to the persistent winter. Now that we have had rain and sun again there is a big chance the flowers will come through soon. Although not in time to parade them around for the German and Japanese tourists:
Re: Pilot can regain controll
Many planes still have a good old 'analogue' instrument backup. Offcourse a ILS approach might become difficult nor is VFR plausible under all conditions. So control is to be taken with a grain of salt I suppose.
Re: Knew It Was Coming
Jetliners are notoriously bad to jump out. What you would need is a old 727 with the staircase in the tail. I believe a hijacker once used that to escape said plane.

You seems to be right concerning market share. Xbox has about 47% in 2012 according to Micrsoft(zdnet said NDP).
Although that is US market share. This chart:
Would suggest that market share for the PS3(45.1%) is higher then the Xbox(32.7%).
Some of the games selling more on the xbox(see first link):
http://www.vgchartz.com/game/43311/tom-clancys-ghost-recon-future-soldier/ - 1.22m(XBOX)
http://www.vgchartz.com/game/43310/tom-clancys-ghost-recon-future-soldier/ - 0.74m (PS3)
http://www.vgchartz.com/game/51771/far-cry-3/ - 2.20m(XBOX)
http://www.vgchartz.com/game/51770/far-cry-3/ - 1.95m(PS3)
So yes, the xbox seems to be outselling the PS3 in games on those that I checked. But the PS3 has the bigger marketshare. I wonder what that is a about. Maybe a bigger second hand market? Or is it indeed so that the PS3 is a blu-ray player in many households?
Re: "Can you take a look at my computer?" they ask
how about:"sure, make a picture and email it to me"?
Nice! I just read your demands for safe passage into your estate, brilliant. I have a t-shirt that has the formula of the airspeed of a unladen swallow, would you consider this cheating?
Well, I do think its what they where on about since astronomers call them moons anyway. But I can see where you are coming from though.
Hoorah, civilized discussion!
Yes, I think this explains it quite well:
I find this passage interesting:
"Eventually, minimoons break free of Earth's gravity and resume their paths around the sun. This happens at about nine months for the typical minimoon, but some of them may orbit Earth for decades, researchers said."
Agreed, he is actually quite right. Yes he has his moments, but then again who doesnt? I find this whole thing predominantly silly.
We do have multiple moons! Well satelites is a better word, but still. Multiple big rock like objects orbit earth for a while, before either crashing into it or getting flung away into space.
If that doesnt satisfy your definitions of moon then thats fine, but that would also exclude Phobos and Deimos from being a moon(Mars' his moons).
And I refrained from voting on the count of 'woefully confused'!
Re: Brings a new consideration to the phrase
Boltar, banning wont make it happend les either, especially if it happend before.
You also have to keep in account the fact that some crimes are not viewed as a crime by society in large(gambling, drugs use, alcohol use etc).
Re: Get a games company to do an enterprise system...
Actually, any gamedevelopre worth its money would have specialized people on staff for such things. Or they would get them in from the outside. Plenty of companies have shown that they can manage such a release just fine. Remember, this is EA, beancounter run gamedevelopment.
Didnt the USB issue have more to do with ghosting in the keyboard matrix? Proper mechanical keyboards dont have that problem though.
One thing I do know is that the PS2 version doesnt have a buffer, but is that really a issue with the current USB speeds? Doesnt it more have to do with the hardware itself?
Re: First Direct
Isnt this expected? Since the RIAA probably googles at lot for these sites and links for it.. The Google filter bubble probably thinks the RIAA is happy with these results and decides to toss up some more to please the user!

Good news, you can now sod off and do nothing!
Re: 365/2013, radio ads
Pray tell, do they include the license on the outside nowadays in physical shops?
That would be nice Ken, it should come with a severe punishment, maybe fully invalidating the license from that point onwards?
Re: Took a bit.
The ear, it always gets me!
Took a bit.
Lets just remove the fact that ships are bound to a sea, and unlikely to be found in space. If said ship would be found in space, then the gravitational attraction between said ship, and a particle of snow(how did it get up there and what was it thinking?!), and ruling out any annoying gravitational body's in the area, then the attration in newton should be 0.00000275436 over a distance of 182.2 Smoots when using the averaged Smoot for 1.70 Meters.
Or in Micro Newton: 2.75436646909
Also not that I used the unladen ships weight.
But, we should launch this ship into space, just be sure!
Re: @ukgnome 70's Maths question of the day
I think you got canned there...
Re: Skull and crossbones
If you go that far, why not the whole way too the ArrPad?
Re: I'm interesting
Now then, batshit insane is one of the better types of insane, have you ever smelled cow dung, or for that matter stood in it wondering how you got wherever you are that you may actually traverse through cow dung?
What are we on about again?
Re: Cue enviro-tards...
There's even some sort of 'turn of your lights' day if I recall. I do remember seeing a very informative video on light pollution, energy use etc made by a local skywatchers group at a uni. They made it for the board of directors with the argument that there was too much light on the campus. It made a good point about costs though. Bloody expensive lighting up the local neighbourhood, especially without any use 99% of the time. And yes, I know I spend a part of almost each night outside.
Re: Cue enviro-tards...
I have a hughe disdain for light pollution. Us skywatchers loath it, and I have to travel a significant distant to get some view on Andromeda. No backward watching for me :(...
I think its mostly skywatchers though, never saw many environmental activists going after the light, they have more important priorities.
Re: I even used one as a server
What the author means is that the only off the shelf linux laptop you can buy is one with Linux Ubuntu from Dell.
And yeah, I agree with the article, its a bloody shame...
Re: Any other supernova candidates?
Can I have both?
Re: All about the money...
About your saying, I think it's more apt to apply it to the companies, if you would be looking at their behaviour.
Oh well, its not as if we had any plans with that billion anyway.
Re: Any other supernova candidates?
I cant wait either! My body will have decaded by then, and I doubt they will revive me in time..
So, we must find a way to speed up this cataclysmic event!
Re: yeah, bring back the draft
Paris, because I thought what you mentioned was some sort of disastrous battle, alas its merely a training ground.
Re: Sales lost to
No offence but I've been hearing that same sentence over since the first WP7 devices. I'm not holding my breath, its not as bad as the linux-on-the-desktop-year-anyday-now thingy, but yeah....
Re: Cheaper way
Actually, just for giggles I decided to check the Facebook shareprice... And amazingly it has been climbing again to 30$, up from a low of 17 something I believe... Bit of a WTF moment, because someone is seeing something in it, or its just a bubble.
Re: Where and by whom?
Everyone rushed out to buy it after seeing Startgate SG-1!!
Re: You honestly think
Next you will suggest the armed forces should take out a knife when running...
Re: Elop's 3 strategy pillars for Nokia have all failed
Well, the Nokia shares appear to be on the down again:
Peaking in August and its been slowly on the decline again ever since. So yeah, you should have sold half a year ago when it peaked. Or, ride it out anyway ti'll the end, the shares arent worth much, and it they manage to turn around then your a happy camper, if they go down all the way, then well you lose.
Re: Have any of you actully attempted to use any of Dyson's products?
Aaah yes, one of the problems the imaginative lads at Landrover havent solved yet..
