Re: nah mate
Bizarrely, it's now called CIF not JIF.
A genuine Windows topic and Eadon isn't here to tell us how crap it is.
I'm going for a preemptive FAIL!
Re: but which has the bigger installed base
You beat me to it.
I upgrade my system every 2-3 years rather than buy a new PC.
Who seriously buys a new PC every year?
Re: Its not very anonymous is it..
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING?!?
My career as an MP is over.

Yeah, he's a real stand up guy.
Microshaft... the plot you have lost.
Winblows 8 - DIRE!
Outlook - A shabby version of gmail.
Skype - Can't stand it!!! WTF was wrong with Messenger???
Office 2013 - One system wonder subscription model with no new features of note.
If self-destruction is Microsofts game-plan. Then, they're doing it right.
Re: Alternating Succuess
I had to re-read, I thought you were describing Star Trek movies.
You are currently downloading 'Game of Thrones - Season 3'
If you provide a valid email address we'll send you a FREE court date.
We'll thcream and thcream and thcream 'till we're thick...
So, Google came up with an excellent search algorithm, developed it, advertised it, gained the trust (to an extent) of it's user base and climbed to the top of it's class while all the other search providers scoffed and sat on their laurels.
Now, when these former giants of the internet search world are pathetic shadows of their former selves, they think it's unfair that Google advertises the products it built on it it's own success.
This is a real 'toys-out-of-pram' moment.
Re: Smash it with a hammer now, it's the only way to be sure.
I missed the the first bit and only read 'it's the only way to be sure.'
Regrettable, I nuked the entire site from orbit.
Re: Can we check one thing?
Trust fund to avoid inheritance tax?
Isn't that standard practice now?
My wife and I are in the process of doing the same, we refuse to let any government profit from our death as they have from our life.
'soon we will be in a police state!!!!'
Regrettably due to the cutback and restructuring of the police force, we would more likely be a Community Support Officer State.
Well, that's enough information from the blog...
I'm for jumping in a car with a couple of mates, nipping down the the GeoLocation and confronting Plumpy with some intimidating behavior and greater numbers, before recovering myself a shiny new MacBook for immediate wiping and resale on eBay.
DRINKS ARE ON ME LADS!!!
Re: Nice, but..
Is it really invasion of privacy though?
It is, after all, his laptop.
Surely he can access his own property as and when he sees fit?
Would love to see Film4 pick this up.
What gives ANY company the right...
...to tell us what what we can and cannot do with a product we have purchased and own outright?
Getting real sick of big business telling us that it may be ours, but we have to do what they say.
May I be the first to say...
"At the event it announced two easy-to-use and lightweight (50g) personal training strap-ons."
Re: Uh... No.
But the one Archimedes created was unique in the sense it had rounded corners.
Re: Let us not forget the Perfumed Garden
...and a non industry standard connector.
If Archimedes was an ancient Steve Jobs, all of his accomplishments would be based on other peoples work.
Atheist. So technically incorrect.
This is a copy and paste, because I have popcorn in the microwave...

It is time for us to recognize as a society that there is no such thing as an atheist. Let me help you understand why this is the case.
Do you believe in Leprechauns? Probably not, because Leprechauns are imaginary. Yes, there are lots of books, movies and fairy tales dealing with Leprechauns. People talk about Leprechauns all the time. Leprechauns even have a popular brand of breakfast cereal. But that does not mean that Leprechauns exist.
We know that Leprechauns are imaginary. Why? Because there is no evidence for their existence. Despite all the publicity Leprechauns get, normal people dismiss storybook creatures like Leprechauns as myths, and rightly so.
If you do not believe in Leprechauns, what are you? Are you an aleprechaunist? Of course not. You are normal. People who do not believe in Leprechauns are completely normal.

"A 'final' office action does not signal the end of reexamination at the USPTO, much less the end of consideration of the patentability of the claims under reexamination. Rather, 'finality' is primarily a procedural construct that limits the right to amend claims and introduce evidence as a matter of right in reexamination."
Da Fuq did I just read?
Do they have The Architect from the Matrix working for them?
If so, I'm taking both pills... and grabbing some popcorn.
Chrome > IE6
The business I work for, (large worldwide insurance company) has ditched IE6 for everything but our intranet. Chrome is installed for everything else.
Isn't that like...
'Although our lasagnes state they contain beef, customers should expect 'moderate' amounts of horse."

Re: Good on him
The app isn't that great IMO.
But I agree. Good on him!!!
That'll upset the Apple Cart(el)
Looks like Macs have finally grown in enough numbers to warrant the attention of the evilnet.
I'm betting this will put paid to the ancient 'we don't get viruses' boast so often chimed by the minority.
American Intelligence - That old contradiction.
They finally caught him from a FaceBook update which read...
"Heading back to China with more secrets from those US Capitalist Dogs. LOL!"
...and the fact he was carrying a dangerous looking bottle of mineral water.
The other evidence was circumstantial and missed by the authorities on several occasions.
Riiiiiiiight. Because their delivery drivers need more efficient routes to deliver cans of Coke.
Not mapping military installations at all. No sir, not us.
Re: Or worse?
I agree. I picked up 2x Huawei Ascend G300 running Gingerbread for the Kids at Christmas.
Less than £100 each, upgraded both to official ICS and in many benchmarks outperforms kit twice it's price.
Even an old HTC Desire running Evervolv ICS still cuts the mustard as a decent Android Phone.
(once you sort out extending the system memory to an SD partitiion)
The wife's Samsung Fit I'm planning to upgrade shortly will probably have similar results.
You most certainly can teach on old phone new tricks.
I got a letter from VM yesterday warning about potential problems with a 115V PSU for my StupidHub.
It informs me to unplug the StupidHub, call them and they'll send me a new PSU.
Did anyone else get one too, or is this just their way of relieving network congestion by getting us all to disconnect?
I just had one.
Will have to torrent it when it's ripped.
Otherwise I'd have to buy an X-Box and a Live account as well as the movie itself to watch it.
Films like this kill the industry!
Huawei are pretty good in my books. Got 2x Ascend G300 for the Kids and was VERY impressed with it's speed an functionality compared to more mainstream brands of smartphone costing £££ more.
Re: T A R D I S
Thanks there, Captain Obvious. We forgot for a second.
American company... made in China.
Are they friends this week?
Dust. Anybody? No? High in fat, low in fat? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust. It's actually very low in fat. You can have as much dust as you like.
$ony PS4: Made of fail.
Sorry, I have been a devoted $ony fanboi since the PS1. Owning a fat, slim and the same with the PS2 and the PS3. I didn't mind too much when they excluded PS2 titles from the PS3 (with the exception of my original release 60GB) but I won't be buying this pile of crap.
I rip selective Blu-Ray titles I own (not download) to watch on my media server and Cinavia has killed this device as a media server. But the killer for me is an incompatibility with PS3 games some of these are £50 a pop for Jobs sake!!!
Filling up my XMB with pay-to-use video apps I never wanted (and can't remove) and a complete inflexibility when it comes to what the user wants sees me heading for the exit on this release.
But I think the biggest con is it doesn't matter how pretty it looks, if the gameplay isn't there then what's the point. Yet another COD or FIFA??? Look at that high resolution blood, wasn't that worth spending all that cash on exactly the same shit in a different package? I think not.
The industry seems rife with forcing what they want on us and not what the customer needs.
THE LINE MUST BE DRAWN HERE!!!
If they don't allow PS3 backwards compatibility and remove Cinavia with the PS4 they'll be struggling again at the end of the next business year.
They should opt for a subscription model like Office 2013
The more we use it, the more they pay US.
Re: Yes I'll get downvoted but....
They have a society specifically set up for this??? Sounds a bit extreme.
Is it run by a small Austrian guy with a unique mustache?
Now let's get to work building some large pointy structures to house our newly reinstated Egyptian Gods.

Best advertisment ever...
... for switching over to Open Office.

It would seem better than some reg hacks.
The Daily Mail... sorry BBC have sexed up the report as a child pr0n app.
At his rate, by the end of the day, I think this lone app may actually be responsible for 9/11
