Re: Call Scooby and the gang!
M$oft is chasing the hybrid/tablet market just when revenues are evaporating. Instead of pretending that WinOS is the one platform to rule them all it should've just ruled each market long ago. Nadella is just delaying on technical grounds, repeating the mistakes of Nokia and RIM. Good riddance.
Software didn't change a thing
Germany still held on to the ball too long in their half, and didn't do anything with it. Duh!
Re: Conspiracy 101 - Deliberate?
The nearby Singapore Airlines flight is damned lucky. Both that and the downed MH colors are similar to Ukrainian military transport, white with blue stripe.
Ukraine could have prevented
After the aircraft is down we have all these news of Ukraine knowing about missile launchers, wiretaps of rebel conversations. Why not warn us before the event?
Build it and they will come
What virtual infrastructure do we really need now? There have been a gazillion experiments with Information Infrastructure now, the most successful being the Steve's Walled Garden kind. Why should the technopolis of Hawera need to be governed from Infinity Circle? I don't believe IBM's Smart Cities initiative is anything but PR, what do we reallly want?
Thanks, great video!
Beautiful shots, I always wondered what Nancy looked like.
Winner will attract DoJ antitrust action
DoJ and EU antitrust watchdogs are really cramping the style of the Big 3. Its a winner's curse for whoever comes out on top in the patent battles.
Re: Not a NAS but...
Any reason its on 24x7? Most modern PCs will sleep to save 'leccy
Enough Gold, what about bitcoin quaffing bacteria?
Call it E coli Mtgoxia for its ability to snag bitcoins from your wallet seated on the couch.
Headline is backwards - NSA copied crooks
Isn't the whole point of it that we paid for the NSA to protect us by closing holes in Internet security, and they turned around and kept gaping holes open so they could spy on Miss Indonesia's chatter. They copied cybercriminals' MoO, and screwed up badly.
Re: It is quite obvious
yeh, looks like a DQ cookie from a mall in downtown Pasadena.
Can't wait for PS5
16xPS4's on-die, can pay for itself in Bitcoin
Sounds like the million dollar toilet in the space shuttle.
G4 owner should've bought Apple stock instead
Think how many Xbox One's they could buy now if they'd bought Apple stock then instead of a useless G4.
No one brave enough to announce this at BB?
The consumer division runs itself apparently. Can't wait for the Black Monday price of BB10, say $80.
Re: Fire Sale......
Where is a Z10 on sale for $80? I might be interested, but I only saw $250 on kijiji. Only because Mozilla OS is not available yet.
Nokia becoming more like M$oft alredy
Paid billions to NOT do something. Nice gig, that will destroy Nokia.
I wouldn't buy a Surface if you paid me
If you paid me $250 I might.
Re: It always starts at the low end.
What year is this? XiaoMi is already worth almost twice Nokia.
huawei wants their money back
Paid good money to be let off the hook, where's the rubber stamp we paid for?
MSFT down 6% after hours
FXXK OFF BALLMER!!
HP Is a hasbeen museum
Put them out to Hasbeen's Pasture (HP)
But HOW to kill Steve Ballmer?
Changing deckchairs on the Titanic again.
Re: I look forward enormously to the restrained, thoughtful and cerebral debate we can expect.....
We need a People's Trial of Ballmer and throw him in the nearest live volcano for taxing our stupidity with the slowest Live Tiles ever imagined since the Commodore 64. Instead of axing workers why not axe Windows!
Amazing a 12 core for $400 smthng
Yanqui ingenuity proven at last, I don't think I could do that. And in a Braun coffee maker case, OK to that!
Re: This seems rather half-arsed
Why doesn't Ballmer bugger off ?
Ballmer desperate to copy Google
Why doesn't the fat tart think of smthg new?
Re: 140 laptops on board?
Intel CPUs make good space heaters apparently
Re: So is this per wavelength?
Telstra is a monopoly, so they can run fibre as slow as they want.
Bye Steve Sinofsky
Crazier than Marissa Mayer?
Certainly a strange bird, but in that polluted area its no wonder they migrate
Re: Gates quote
Ballmer is lowering the stock enough so those he and Gates can take Microsoft private.
Re: Quite so, and it blows their sanctimonious piffle sky high
Likely Steve Jobs got cancer from his time on the production line at Atari, like several others. His genius is to shift the production line elsewhere.
Huawei PR woot
Huawei hired the Propaganda Ministry who paid a lot of bribes to prominent lawmakers - problem solved.
Re: Gullible hacks...
Why does Intel keep adding cores when the performance increase is so minor, like 5%? Any more than 8 cores is utterly pointless without a complete design review of the bottlenecks in the Intel architecture.
Somebody please tell the book industry that the loonie and the buck are equal. On book covers they print vastly inflated prices for the Canadian dollar price.
Downer as Mr Fixit
Yeah.. would that work. NOT!!!!!
NZ is US colony, FBI can do what it likes
It shows how the NZ authorities care less about rights of their own citizens than the opinions of the FBI, who had a plane to catch apparently.
How Meg got her swagga back
1.9 million stock options would do it. I don't think she's that into webos
April Fool's Joke?
This is the guy who's in charge of the PS3 which has been completely neglected 4 years in a row, part of the cabal that has shrunk Sony to nothing, and now we hear he's being promoted April 1st? Surely its a good joke. There really is a plan to turn around Sony this century?
zero dollar RIM not exciting
I agree with YAAC, the market was not excited even when RIM recently wrote off their stock of Playbooks at zero, so half-off doesnt seem a bargain at all.
Jokes aside, my sympathies to those injured by some insensitive expats,
Waiting for Version 2.0
Is there no 0-day warez on it?
Vendors say 'watercooled', not 'soggy' drives
Why not convert a catastrophe into a plus? Drives with the 'optimal hydration' perhaps? or 'water cooled'? but not soggy , please!
low! power! without! Intel!
OMG, you mean SJ was right about power hog Intel not listening to the low power tune?
Silly old codger!
His nepotism also screwed up myspace.cn, which was even cheaper way to make money.
Apotheker maybe EU President next?
Looks like the EU is going to take a dive, maybe -40% just like at HP and SAP
Re: Readiness index?
Networking is practically a monopoly, and Canada will be ready for a modern internet experience when Rogers says it will be.
TEPCO high energy sports drink -now with Strontium90!
--- Powered by TEPCO ---
TheReg's talent for understatement is really being stretched on this Fukushima story.
The cost to Japan's economy is only one or two trillion bucks, its nothing really.
-- insert TEPCO ad here --
Huawei doth protest too much, methinks
Too much outrage, definitely. Who's doing their PR on this, Timothy Geithner?
- Stick a 4K in them: Super high-res TVs are DONE
- Review You didn't get the MeMO? Asus Pad 7 Android tab is ... not bad
- BEST BATTERY EVER: All lithium, all the time, plus a dash of carbon nano-stuff
