Re: They may struggle with that one
Because video is video and that's it? I'm not saying that prior art doesn't exist but just saying video existed before doesn't cut it. WAV files existed before mp3 or wma but does that mean the latter 2 are just copies and not worthy of protection? If quicktime and facetime started to use the patented technique in their videos after the patent was granted then they deserve this. If they used the technique before then I agree with you. Does anyone know the methods used by quicktime and when they started doing it?
Huawei are definitely an up and coming company in the consumer market but they still have to make it easier for the uninitiated. I have had their media pad tablet for at least a year now and it was a decent bit of kit that easily competed with the samsung galaxy but for half the price. Small snag is when I want to update the firmware (and I had to since the first few were very buggy) it meant going to the website, downloading the file, putting it onto an sd card, booting up, installing, clearing sd card and then reinstalling every app and setting I had. Compare that to HTC's notification on the phone, download, reboot done. But I think it will come and then the big boys will have to watch out. At least the US has already prepared: Ban that awesome phone from the US because it's Chinese spy tech!
Re: Couldn't Samsung...
They could stop supplying but if you ran a company would you turn away over $8 billion of business?
so not only is it a waste of time
because there is no reason to follow it even if there was sanctions they could just contract it out to a private firm and avoid it anyway. Pointless political headline scoring.
Maybe you're not familiar with tor's original supporter the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory? I highly doubt militaries are relying on it solely but I imagine it's a very good tool in an arsenal. Particularly if you need deninability.
Because there isn't enough product placement and bias to apple already in films/series. On the otherside it would be a better way to spend money instead of on lawyers
That would depend hugely on what country you were in now wouldn't it?
Have to agree. This is just FF trying to blame MS for their failings. Chrome has managed to catch up to them in a short time where as they seem to reckon they can only get people with the EU screen. I gave up on FF years ago and moved to Opera but now FF is my 4th browser of choice after Chrome and IE9
Did apple touch you in a delicate place as a child? I'm by no means an apple support and have never purchased their products but your hatred of them is as bad as any fanboi's devotion. And that said on a reg comment!
it does work that way
Andrew Jones, that's basically what will happen. Some companies will register names like .microsoft and keep them for themselves. Others will register names like .cymru then sell it off in the same way as .uk or .com
are you trolling
or genuinely clueless? Most drupal modules that are heavily used, particularly the ones in 7 are professionally built by drupal shops for customers who pay for that functionality or sponsor modules. That's not including all the google summer code projects and acquia modules. The you have the more simple side of it. Modules at best generate snippets of html code. There will be nothing in that code (since it will be match xhtml standards) that does not already drop into html 5. So that point is invalid anyway but since drupal seperates mark up out of modules into templates and theme functions even if some did need changing it would be very easy to do and the community would do it if the original module writer does not.
since moving to Norway
I haven't used cash in an eon. The assumption here is you will use a card or you will get a dodgy look from everyone like you were trying to barter. Even if it's as little as a £1. Bout time the UK caught up with the modern world. A card is far easier to use and more secure.
Can someone explain the logic behind their reasons? Surely a cheaper BT means that there is less money and incentive for BT to upgrade systems, less incentive for people to set up their own networks and make it harder to compete? Surely the more BT charges the quicker it becomes cheaper to set up your own service, not the other way around?
