A million warning emails!
Let's be realistic here, its all about NUMBERS. How long would it take to investigate and prosecute 1,000 000 copyright infringements let alone 99,000?
Especially when the defence is, 'someone must have been using my wifi connection.'
It's an unenforceable Law.
A sane voice in a sea of insanity.
There have already been serious data crashes in the cloud.
If you own it keep it close to you, I mean would you buy an Aston Martin garage it in a lock up shed on an estate 200 miles away in the Gorbals and leave the keys to it on the bar in a jam jar in the Dog and Fukket?
The guy can see the future problems.
Re: A victory for common sense.
Well done with that, how often do we buy things to find that for the feature to be present some third party device or product needs to be purchased.
Accessory purchase is a real money spinner for a lot of companies, especially cabling and adaptors.
They like to have
An accessible open door policy.
The 12% are probably the most loyal customers AT&T have. Will they provide them with a free handset when the 2G switch off occurs.
Nope they will most likely stuff them into either paying more and paying for a handset or wave goodbye.
They may very well have a claim here, if they do it could be the end of Zynga and the beginning of the end for Facebook.
How far can you go to say a game has been copied,modes that mean all FPS are in the frame, maybe COD or anything you need to use a keyboard for?
We shall see an I hope this doesn't lead to numerous Apple v Samsung style copyright cases. It is not good for the gaming industry.
I have made a rocket out of two fairy liquid bottles, some double sided sticky tape and baking soda and vinegar.
Can I have a couple of billion dollars to develop my ideas?
Re: So its official
They backed out of it before they were made to look stupid.
Eventually, where there is a way there is a means......
Money money money
Money talks, everyone has a price.....
It's just a question of negotiation.
Expect it to be expensive and expect it to be late.
My unbranded HTC Sensation got the ICS update and is now a buggy shadow for its former self. Beware what you wish for.
The moral of the story
Dont buy a phone that has a promise of an update, only buy them with the update.
Sales would drop but it would send a message to carriers and manufacturers of the Android phones that the buying public wont put up with the delays. They might then learn a lesson.
This pretty much tells you to keep a local backup and not rely on a third party to keep your data.
Go on kick a man when he is down.
If you stick a 50% off sticker on anything it will sell.
It may not cause as much damage to the environment but it causes until damage to the brain, lowering IQ levels by up to 45%
Re: Here we go again @ AC 06.40
I think you have proved your theory down to the last full stop.
Won't be long
Parliamentary investigation committee,
'Mr Diamond at what stage, as CEO of one of the largest banking groups did you decide that investing in Ripemoff Ltd would be a good idea' asked Keith Vaz MP.
'Well Keith it was like this, we needed the cash right, we needed it quick cos you we're about to investigate us like'
'At what point did you realise the investment was a mistake?'
'We tranfered the money and then tried to contact this guy called Mr F Ewe, but his phone was cut off...'
'Silly thing to do don't you think?
'No way, it was a great opportunity to use other people's money to gamble a bit on the markets you know'
'Didn't work did it Mr Diamond'
'Come on Keith, like you never took a chance...'
Computers don't need replacing every year, in fact program's rarely tax the power of even the most basic computers unless you are a gaming fanatic, even then a 2 years old mid range pc will play the latest games.
The purchase of iPads are not instead of a PC, it's to compliment the PC.
So this story really makes no sense at all.
When BT updated the exchange where I live to fibre my broadband speed dropped considerably, BT is not my broadband supplier.
Since this upgrade I also get an unsolicited letter a week offering me BT fibre broadband.
Is something going on here? I think it is.
Is the fool
Is the fool the man that thought he could get away with it?
The man who bought the shares?
Re: Tim Cooks seven incher...
@ Chet Mannly
'Does seem a while since Apple produced something so radically different you'd call it revolutionary though.'
You may have a point, but while Apple have produced the definitive tablet all other manufacturers have tried to play catch up and none have surpassed the perfectionism of the iPad. This is not my opinion but the opinion of 100% of every review ever written.
While they may have lost a little ground with the IPhone since the introduction of some newer models from Samsung and HTC they still hold the crown for usability. However having lost ground does not make the iPhone worse than the opposition, it has just made the playing field more level. The introduction of the new iPhone and OS6 might change that. It might even make the old iPhone a better buy just on the update alone, something that Android updates if you can get them have never managed as they rely on better hardware to boost their standing.
I don't know what you think a more radical design should be? Do you have any ideas?
All you need is a CNC machine, get it to understand the code and you will be able to produce any piece and shape of metal. Now that would be progress.
Build your own weapons, from start to finish and I doubt it will be long in the making.
Can you think
Can you think of anything more boring than being on this jury, it will go on for months and months.
The only perk, a free iPhone at the end of the trial.
Long may this controversy last
Think how bland El Reg would be without it.
It would only be about tech news, sanitised stories and boring stuff about new laptops.
This gives it meat and two veg, this is what we want!
Maybe it's one of those mum and dad sort of companies? Maybe they actually treat you properly, consider you as a human being and realise that if you are happy in work you will be more productive?
Or they really are a bunch or cretins?
Re: But Shirley
Re: What about the Crown Court judge?
He was probably 100 years old and still used an ear trumpet.
This decision is already too late to have saved his career.
Googles two fingers to the authorities
Then don't just slap their wrists, make an example of them and give them a good caning!
Everyone knows the only way to get a ticket is to be a Games Organiser, Corporate entity or Politician.
Am I the only one in the world that likes a separate search bar?
Just goes to show what a mess legal systems that relate to EU law are in.
Be honest, this is because China is becoming too expensive and labour here is cheaper!
In another few years, they'll be thinking of opening one here in the UK, we have the perfect market for them, of artificially held down labour costs.
It's just a shame
That Governments will just take it on the chin, condemn the perpetrator but then do absolutely nothing to change things.
But the biggest fail is that after abuses have been highlighted the voter could change things but instead continues to sleep walk.
And still Apple products will be better designed and built, but so long as Amazon provides functional Tablets at a low cost who will care!
