updating it automatically
>>hopes to keep the OS up to date: by updating it automatically for its users
Not sure that's a good idea. Like giving out your root password to a chimp?
NET send from DOS SMB stack in the '80s
+ Windows 3.11 and greater
Just f**k off VMWare
Halve the price...

Give the new MS money to Open Source instead

Re: new format
All this stuff has nothing to do with CO2, artic melting, el-nino/la nina, cows farting or too many brown/yellow people.
It's Ming the Merciless screwing with us.
or Julian Barratt
The post is required, and must contain letters.
That is all.
>>Joining is pathetically easy
No it's not.
Apart from the link in the article being broken, there's absolutely no mention of memberhsips or how to join on the main website.
I was going to join right now. Today. But I'm not now...
Doesn't print properly
Ubuntu 12.04, FF19.
Views nicely but won't print an A4 sheet to scale :(
Nice try but not quite there yet...
Is this same (fictitious) Skills shortage we allegedly have in the UK?
Re: Sandy Island = R'lyeh!!
my thoughts exactly
Should Microsoft merge Office into Windows?
They should drop the whole office suite and start contributing to LibreOffice ;)
Homosapians have been waving theirs hands around for over 60,000 years - and Apple are now patenting it?
Re: I love gadget queues!
keyboard please - and a screen wipe...
Useless - all of them
They may work OK if you're on the top of a hill in the city but anywhere else - they're door stops.
Wait until the DAB coverage equals FM and then think about it...
clever. good example. well done
Re: Stupid or suspicious?
you might be onto something there...
useless in devon
I travel a lot around the back roads of Devon. Usually I don't get a mobile phone signal. So, I'm paying more for a new car with no benefit to me. Well done Brussels ⇐ knobends!
No doubt there'll be a a little wire from the battery to these things. No-one can track my whereabouts if I snip the wire.
Excellent Revenue Generator
Thanks UK government for helping small business!!
30mins to build a complience widget, 100 website customers at £100 per implementation = £10,000 lovely pounds for me.
Atmos. The firm that helped the Sontarans invade Earth.
Not sure I'd trust them with my data...
Mega City Iso-Cubes
That is all
Let's make existing version work properly before releasing new products that don't work properly.
Yes, I'm talking about the linux version that's been in purpetual beta for I-don't-know-how-many-years.
solutions people - please!
put the town's signs 10m in the air and round off the bolts so they can't be undone.
a fake webcam in day-glo orange nearby should do the trick
real coders use notepad
that is all
My (e)book is better than your (e)book
Windows 7 only.
1. Proper Computer Engineers use Linux and laugh in the face of Microsoft's purile offerings
2. THERE IS **NO** SKILLS GAP IN THE UK. Just useless agency sales reps with little or no appreciation of computing skills and moronic CIOs who won't read CVs futher than what ineffectual vendor certifications the candidate has.
Sounding bitter? Not really. I'm successfully self-employed after a successful career as a CIO
Re: Re: What?
>>but I'd call a three metre tall man giant.
Shirley that would be "sir!"?
Didn't Laplink did most of that a very, very long time ago? Was that a Norton/Symantec product?
Along with Bakunin's list (see above) there must be prior art...
Acronis et-al should just pull out of the US market until it's populance realises what a crock those Software Patents are.
What about those scammers calling old folks in the UK and telling them they're from Microsoft and their PC is spouting errors onto the Internet?
Where's a (cyber) policeman when you need one?
For as long as I've been in IT (some 25 years) in both "chimp" and CTO roles there has been this "skills shortage". It seems the only people telling us there is a problem is training companies and recruiters - ie people with a vested interest in scamming the public for useless courses or fictitious jobs.
Ask any of the current unemployed IT professionals whether there's a skills shortage!
Show me a company that can't get skilled staff (and I'm not talking about the poorly run ones who no-one wants to work for or pays peanuts or won't train their current staff)!
A big fat hairy elephant b*****ks to this survey. It's wrong.
As a successful professional web developer, it's one technology I've never learnt to code and now I'll never need to.
Don't knock Mr Tumble
He's a god amongst toddlers!!
also not surprised
Selling kit with a build quality of £50 for £500 to the customer is never going to be a good business model.
They should trying being more honest and sell their kit in the right price bracket!
good points well made
Don't ship to the US!!
I've said it before and I'll say it again.
Until the US citizens rise up and force a law change on Patents, do not R&D in, or ship your products to, the USA. They'll soon get the message when they can't buy the watch they want without a plane flight to Europe!
It's in a hanger somewhere in the Nevada desert along with the CSM and was reused for the fake Apollo 11 footage ;)
leave the birds alone and they'll leave you alone.. simple
What if Farquharson went into a Restaurant, walked up to the corner table and took a plate of food from a burly scotsman.
I think he might get twatted then too.
(tux because it's the nearest thing to an eagle)
Don't ship to the US!!
the whole problem will go away very quickly if we all just stop shipping our hard work to US customers.
No iPod Touch support!!
wot a pile of pants
Just stop selling to the US market
If all these non-US companies just stopped shipping to the US the problem would go away.
No litigation to worry about and (eventually) the dim-witted US citizen would realise they're missing out and force a change to the frankly stupid patent system.
Who was the knobhead that took the case to court in the first place? They need a jolly good pummelling
Until we can walk around a little Princess Leia appearing on our desks saying "Help me Obi Wan", then we WON'T HAVE 3D!!
Current "3D" is just 2D with a slimmer wallet, squinty eyes and a head-ache.
Good for us laptop repair companies!!
Acer = cheap tat that breaks quickly = more business for me fixing them.
Bring them on (but ship to the UK please, not other Europeans)...
also, to the Chinese/Hong Kong ebayers - please stock up on cheap parts!!
