The fact is, most of the population NEVER have a good idea, ever. This is followed by the fact that there is only ONE good idea in most of the people who are capable of having a good idea. Another fact is, most good ideas come before the 25th birthday. You, dear toad, miss one salient point, the first Apple was like moving out of a cave into a cabin. Woz was not replicating some commodity hardware, he was creating the very first home computer that you could buy from a retailer, power on, and use. Nothing but a pile of dollar bills was required on your part. Being FIRST is the hard part. After that it just looks easy.
Re: Upgrade, not for me
If you think win 8 is bad, just wait for windows 13, that is what you really want.
Re: Divide and conquer
World domination is just a matter of time. The last time I looked, Linux worked out of the box on more hardware than any other operating system. I can not recall where I saw the stat, but it sort of does match reality. For me, it just works. There is a thing called a "learning curve" If you are unlearned then you are free to ask, and you will be given the free knowledge. If you are not prepared to learn, then stick with what you think you know.
Re: That would be me then...
thanks, it works without js and doesn't pop tabs or windows. blekko is good too.
Why try to hit the asstroid? Why not just aim for earth and deflect that? Hitting the asteroid is hard, and as has been pointed out, it might come back when we are not looking..
If you are going to link to this floriated distortion of reality, please give some balance, link to an independant source, e.g. groklaw, or reuters or bloomberg.
Remember Korea and how one man got the telecoms? I think KDC is just at a loose end.
Re: Maybe more trouble for Apple
True, there is nothing on that ad saying which horse has spake.
why would anybody want to own facebook?
Timing is everything with facebook, you get good news, just before another shedload of shares are unlocked. Amazing gift. Monday is liberation day according to the WSJ. I am impressed, really. This means you can time the market. Buy one week, sell the next.
opal opal opal opal
opal i must learn to spell .
could be mica or something left over from the old impact. That event would have been bright and glowy. But this is in the dirt. I would go for mica followed by opel. opel would be interesting.
Re: Dear Apple - here is where you went wrong..
The bar chart near the end of her talk is the message. However Apple belongs at the very smallest end of that chart. So what gives? what have they set out to do? It is far more than "Android is an Apple ripoff" because the fruitcake's lawyers have always been buzzing round the trash. I think it is more like the wish for total control over a selected market.
It is all about who owns the backdoor that does not exist, and whose home owns the phone that never calls. If it's not A*merican, then it will be evil thru and thru.
The judge is also indicating that there might be a valid case against KDC. It aint simples. It looks like the judge thinks there might be an amount of intent to do bad things. Given the illegal and unlawful actions from the plods, the lawyers are going to have a picnic splitting the tainted evidence. I notice Key is stonewalling, does that mean more to come? The same non-answer to a number of questions indicates Key is either in damage limiting mode, or they have not given up. On the other hand, look at the free publicity KDC is getting. When the new service launches, there will be no shortage of free advertising. The world is about to be carpet bombed.
Re: Burn some Dingo's
Plural of dingo is dingos no bloody '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' needed. Unless you are burning bloody Dingo's bloody bones or burning bloody Dingo's bloody droppings. Remember do not touch that bloody ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' key. You make fewer bloody mistake's.
Google have NO problems with anybody forking Android. e.g. Amazon, sell a forked droid. Google have invited Alibaba to join the OSH. So once again, Google have no problems with Alibaba. The fact is that Alibaba is upfront promoting shit which breaks copyright and does not distribute the source for GPL software. Does Acer want to get sucked into that pile of litigation? Now tell us, who pays you to spread this crap? Does the name begin with A? or with M?
The pigs are deaf, blind, stupid, and believe they are descended from god. John Key is the minister in charge of the clusterfuckers, but that does not include the day to day things - like shooting children. He can't sack the retard in charge because that retard is already gone, leaving behind this pile of dung. If we just shut our eyes perhaps it will all drain away. Meanwhile Key has made his feelings known, and left it up to the sicko dicks as to their future. Me, I would not bet on promotions all round if ministerial approval is required.
Oh, how I hate to write,
This pig will not fly tonight.
If you do read this, Mr.Key, The best thing to do is to tell the FBI branch of the RIAA to forget it. It can only get worse, and you have more important things to do.
If the FBI thought the place was full of sheep, they were right. The scale of the KDC swat ops makes me think there MUST have been ministerial approval. In fact a deal this big should have had more than one minister doing the OK. Or else, we have a bunch of loons with guns and choppers loose on the land. So, who was it that thought this was a good idea at the time?
Tom Tom supplies maps to the masses, and the masses manage to map quite well. This problem belongs to the iThing. All antennas have shitty maps, why!! you only have to look at the other maps to see iXXX is not alone. And other bullshit like that will be running soon. Apple might even tell it like it is in RDF:: You are simply holding the phone wrong.
Re: @ "Since when is MTS an US corporation?"
Historically inept. The German bombs were all over Europe, The Japanese bombs were in Asia/Pacific. Perhaps you are georgaphically challenged? Whichever it is, I do believe it was Japanese bombs dropped by Japenese aircraft that lit up Perl harbor ???????????
It simply pays and pays to be vigilent. I wonder what evil lurks in them there chips. Turnbull? how did good old Oz manage to get a retarded GWB clone running for leadership? He has what might be called a "gift"
Re: Meh.. Will be overturned LONG before then.
I did. I watched it a couple of times. On that man's logic, Samsung software will not run on Apple hardware, so Samsung can not infringe. Likewise, Apple does not infringe because Apple software can not run on Samsung hardware. Now, you go and watch it yourself, please, from beginning to end. Thanks.
Check the forman on youtube? He is an absolute whiz. The prior art can not run on the Apple hardware, and the Apple software can not run on the prior hardware. Therefore they are incompatible. So the prior art does not count. Aha. Apple is not guilty of having prior art. (check)
Now, the question they should ask is if the Apple software runs on the Samsung hardware, and/or if the Samsung software runs on the Apple hardware. To help any member of the jury who might be reading over my shouler: No it will not. and No it will not.
So Samsung is guilty of wilful infringment patent by patent. (Tick lots of boxes)
Makes a lot of nonsense, but that is how Californian patent law works.
You think that jury decision will stand?
That was the biggest best waste of time since Oracle tried to tangle Google.
The problem is it was a jury, and they, no matter how nonsensical, take a lot of tossing.
Imagine, having to put gestures on an Apple phone before Apple does it, to invalidate an Apple patent? Yes I can, can you?
Re: hardware virtualisation support?
linux vserver piece of cake. With limitations.. it will only run Linux and only run the host kernel, but I have 11 VMs doing different things. It is good for overcoming library conflicts, like when you want to use XX, which needs libxyz, and you have to use libxxyz to run your day job. Just make another vm, and install libxyz along with XX. It also allows you to run Fedora, Debian, Slackware .... simultaneously in the palm of your hand. I run vncserver and dummy network module and hashify to save drive space. Almost native performance on the old AAO.
Re: Still using my £120 AAO first series
My original AAO SSD died, I replaced it with a CF card and adapter. I bought a set of flip cables, and away weee go. Do not forget the magic ferrite sleeve. Packets of flip cables are almost priceless on ebay. The adapter just fits between the MB and the case, I wrapped the tin bits in kapton. Speed is about the same as the SSD. A dual adapter and twin CF cards with software raid would work well too, but you might have to do a bit of plastic surgery. Some people use refurbed 1.78" disks, think ebay. I looked at that and decided the CF card was better for me. Similar cost. Just remember fake flash is rife on ebay.
"Why have a trial" ?????
When we can just go and lynch em. (before the weekend)
read my lips
I did not see the CP/M source code. tick
I ran a debugger on the binary tick
I made a workalike O/S tick
You could convert CP/M progs to DOS wearing a blindfold. tick
Then some schmuk comes along with "If you copy MY Basic, I won't get rich"
Look at the alternatives that have been presented to Samsung, and you have a deal made in Califorina. The choices are simples, you either pay us for the stuff we allow, AND you do not get to use anything we do not allow, or you can get your shafting from our Seattle friends.
Now which square has the goats?
If it were me, I would have been short on the 270 mil shares already. Time to party like there is only tomorrow.
I think he is sort of free to wander. The pigs claimed that he had a couple of NZ speeding tickets. He has lost a passport of three, but that is not "house arrest" You could try for a swim with kim and get it first hand. But stay away from the internets, they send in SWAT teams for being that offensive. The NZ pigs want to prove to the FBI that they are up to the task, hence the use of big guns against little children. This might also explain why he got residency but then they refused to allow him to buy his pad. You should note he has only been accused of criminality in the Hollywood dream factory, geographically that does not extend as far as Auckland, New Zealand.
The other side
The Samsung side of the suits is that Apple owe them for using THEIR patents, as in real expensive research derived hardware telephone patents, none of this "you copied our round corners" crap. It appears that Apple are going to lose unless Samsung is prevented from presenting any of their own supporting evidence. The fact that Apple is trying to ignore their Samsung bill is getting lost in all the weeping about rectangles and corners. Get real, Apple innovating? you joke. If this is the best they have, then I can beat them, and I am useless.
groklaw has a pointer to a number of places where you can get PD icons which look very very similar to the Apple and Samsung pix. Did Apple copy any of them? No. Did Samsung? No. They are generic with alterations according to the prevaling fashion.......... You just would not want to be seen on the street with yesterday's icon set.
expert witness says apple can't win
Apple's witness: industrial designer Peter Bressler, said this is like "compare peanut butter to turkey" when pressed about the design differences between PhoneA and PhoneS. In other words, PhoneA is N*O*T a copy of PhoneS. So, in my books that stops Apple's trade dress suit dead in its tracks. Go short on Apple, they just lost beeeliioons and beellions.
Bloomberg reports : The Elopians have bought $1M Nokia shares. Nokia has just gone up by the biggest % in 20 years !!! Meanwhile, about 80% of the shares than can be, are shorted. So look no more. Follow the cash.
Reuters reports a Nokia -- Goupon deal. Do we hear the sounds of pumping? Naa, they would never do a pump and dump on Nokia.
Re: @Mark . - that would be a "yes" then
Ok, make it look like a cane toad, should sell heaps. The problem is, as the UK judge managed to fathom, rectangles are not cane toads. There is no law preventing anybody from making a phone. The laws of reality say it has to conform to some norms of utility and fashion. Judge 1 rectangular cornering lawyers 0.
Re: @Mark . - are you terminally thick?
The point is that Samsung had NOT been sued during that period. Another point is that Apple did not save relevant emails either until the suit began. Pot meet Kettle
Friday. Sammy objected to Koh's apparent bias in jury instructions. Sammy drew the court's attention to the fact that Apple had not saved emails until (I forget when) which was long, long after they sent their first silly letter to Sammy. So the take now is that both parties have failed to preserve email evidence. In fact, given that Apple instigated the action, you could say their destruction is weightier. However Koh has put a different spin on it. now, the jury is instructed that both parties have fouled.
it is kinda like an Apple iThing, only tasteless, so they will have to give them away to get rid of the s**t.
