Re: But that was yesterday...@florida1920
Not that they could get through to them....
All you important stuff with us, we never let you down, nothing can ever go wrong........
'I told you not to use the kettle!'
Who'd have thought it
Who'd have thought it, wasn't Capita the company everyone wanted to work for?
The BBC tend to lie to everyone when it's all about self preservation.
MP' are just the same, they lie too when it's all about self preservation.
Having spent many many holidays on my Gandmothers farm as a child I became a dab hand at milking cows, and
having dealt with real cows, their foibles, attitudes to milking and occasional grumpiness and foot stomping I think the idea is a stroke of genius. It's so much safer for the children than a real one. Instead of a minefield of red tape and compliance with Health and Safety legislation, he only needs to have the thing PAT tested.
It was the geese that gave me nightmares, they never took to me.......... I really don't like them you know.
I for one like the flattened minimalist style, through that doesn't take away the fact that this guy is a self publishing prat. Still it worked for him didn't it.
There is always someone who will jump onto the political correctness bandwagon, someone who will find offence in some comment or situation.
These are people who just go out of their way to find offence in some form or another without looking into the context of the situation.
While such things should never be condoned the rule of common sense should be applied, but unfortunately the PC thought police are now firmly established.
Yesterday I heard a woman speaking on Radio 4 who wanted to take the Bank of England to court for not having enough women represented on the back of bank notes. Her tone, the way she made her point did her no favours.
There are more important things to protest in this world.
It doesn't matter where you live, what nationality you are you will be subject to American Law, even if you have broken no laws in the country of your residence.
The only country that has shown any backbone and has said no to them recently has been New Zealand.
Exportation of Laws to other countries?
I think the reply from the Chinese Government will be a simple 'go fcuk yourself'.
Having travelled to Germany while my case took a holiday in Spain might have been avoided.
Nothing worse than being the last person standing at the carousel waiting, as it stops and watching as the cleaners come and and start sweeping the floor.
HOW TO CIRCUMVENT THE SAFEGUARDS
NSA: hi GCHQ You might want to ask us if we have any information on Abdul Smith.
GCHQ: hi NSA, do you have any information on Abdul Smith?
NSA: Come to think of it, yes we do, would you like it?
GCHQ: yes please NSA.
10 minutes later.
NSA: hi GCHQ, do you have any information on Abdul Smith?
GCHQ: what a coincidence that you ask, we do, would you like it?
NSA: Now that would be fantastic GCHQ, yes please.
How to circumvent the safeguards.
Confused? They try to make you.
Re: How ironic
Yes, and you must never embarrass the people in charge, they don't like it at all.
Dig deeper and you will find, 'Made by US Gov, Trademark 'Prism' copyright US Gov' stamped on it somewhere.
Re: "... grist ....tea leaves and dove's entrails ..."
He's making a meal of it because he has no idea what will be announced, he has to fill in the white space with something, anything...
No point in speculating, Apple only 'leak' information for their own benefit, it's all choreographed. Don't ever thing the leaks are ever 'accidental', they play their cards close to their chest.
Let's just see what they come up with, there will be plenty to slag them off with on Monday.
Re: Sadly @TheVogon
'You know Xbox One already broke Pre-Order records, right?'
Yes but they didn't know the terms and conditions until today!
There will be fools who will want to buy it, all three of them.
Once you get to a certain age
I used to love fixing my old Alfa Romeo when I was 18, messing with twin carbs,, adding an Ansa exhaust alloy wheels. Getting it to go faster, making it louder.....
Then one day I wanted more comfort, a quieter car, got fed up with oil dripping on my drive, getting rid of rust....
I just wanted something that was quick, quiet, worked and was so reliable that I just needed it serviced once in a while.
That is the target market for the iPhone, it's for the 'been there done that and had a wild time, got a,career, a new car, a house, now I've got kids I want things to work and be frustration free' market.
I visited London last week, after a 20 year break and reminded myself why I left. Once you get to a certain age....... I don't need that kind od S*** any more.
Isn't this the kind of thing they wanted to do here after the Leveson report, state and celebrity control of the media.
The media lobbies didn't fill the brown envelope enough.....
We will find out soon enough that its been going on in the UK for sometime already.
Lets not be pedantic, if the Pi is really supposed to be a find it out for yourself kind of thing then you might as well ban any website that promotes a help page.
It's ridiculous to suggest there shouldn't be some kind of 'get you started help'.
When you learned to drive a car did someone hand you a set of keys and say, 'off you go, get on the roads and learn for yourself' or when you were at school did you teacher sit there (well one or two might have but weren't they di***) and say 'find your own learning material and choose a subject, learn it yourself.'
Show someone the way first.
Would this mean the end of Win 8 phones?
Plan B, keep throwing out devices until something finally sticks.
Re: Human swarm
With so much data on me being processed by all these businesses, why is it that I have absolutely no interest in the advertising they target me with.
Pretty much says all there is on the matter
It will be bought by the same kind of people who drive round in 'look at me, look how good I am' electric and hybrid cars. I'm sure we will see celebs and other pontificators using them as crowd pleases...... Though behind closed doors they couldn't care a s**t.
Let the Welsh put the Germans in their place,
1-0 to them I think.
Rich people think that Laws are made to control the little people...
The fine should have been more that just pocket change and a spell in prison might make him realise what an ar*e he is.
This guy is a knight in shining armour
But his enemies have big guns.
Re: How long...
They'll just claim they need it for anti terrorism measures, though how they will be able to see through a burka confuses me?
Re: Yes, but...
Simple solution, only use Apple adapters and don't stick it into an unknown hole without using some form of protection, otherwise expect to catch something,
Involved in the development of,
Win 8 mobile?
Sounds like he has had one smoke toooooooo many.
Accounts for a lot it does.
Re: Not sure
The true differentiators between tablets are quality of materials, logo and price. (Without switching it on)
The ordinary man will know that if it feels cheap and plasticky it is not from Apple.
The ordinary man will see the Apple logo and know it is from Apple.
The ordinary man will be told the price of the tablet, choke and realise it must be from Apple.
The ordinary man will by something cheaper ........
So the courts in 'coffee shop capitals of Netherlands' do have a point.
Re: I'm reassured but
Wouldn't be surprised if second hand machines appear in UK airports.
I've been there, in the 1980's and believe me when I say the place is only fit for mad dogs and Englishmen.
A 60 day stay? The man needs to be certified.
Absolutely... It might make them try a little harder and work faster.... Those that exploit them rely on the fact that we don't hear about them for months.... When it's too late already.
Re: Excuse me, but...
This is still expensive, especially when you consider the full fat 32GB is only £50 more.
A more realistic price would have been £150.
I though Senator Conroy
Was an old codger who thought the Internet was used in catching fish, which would account for his idiocy.
Instead, and without surprise, I find he is one of those generic younger politicians we find the world over, in every corner of the globe who have absolutely no idea about anything.
It's very worrying that nations are being run by these people.
Research or Tax fiddle for big business?
It's also a way to mitigate taxes in Europe, don't be fooled with the altruism, it's all about money and how to avoid giving it to the tax man.
Are made using advisors from all the large worldwide accountancy firms just like here in the UK.
HMRC/Governments are advised by companies such as KPMG and PwC so it is inevitable that loop holes and clever accounting practices are built in to the rules.
Both KPMG and PwC and others have permanent liaison staff with the Revenue departments.
So basically it is all bent from the begining, built in to the system from the ground up to benefit large corporations.
Tax is not meant to apply to the rich or big business, it's there only for the little people to pay.
Go get a 360 when the price drops.
Sort of defeats
Sort of defeats the idea of using Win8 as a touch screen operating system if they are bringing out a dedicated mouse for it?
Is this a sign that it has been a fail?
Before Scott set off for the Antartic he had a rented office in London?
Truth be told, this Mars thing is just pie in the sky, next thing we will hear is the recruitment for a Big Brother style program that simulates a trip to Mars in the confines of a cellar somewhere near London. It's all about publicity for the program that will be.
Finally the light of common sense has been lit.
Read the story
And just yaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeedddddd.
The only people who care about this must have sad, insignificant, inconsequential and unimportant lives.
It's not the ones we know about that are dangerous, it's the ones we haven't seen yet that pose the real problem.
And his mates outside already have a device that can replicate this and steal the info....
He's just getting things ready for when he is released..
He'll wish he had kept his mouth shut!
Re: Good idea
One technique I use, when asked to press 1 etc I do nothing, just talk to myself then wait for a minute as the phone connects me to a person. Some call centres have caught on to this and disconnect, but many do not and assume you may be disabled and put you through to a person.
