Re: Prior art??
I claim patents on the colours of the rainbow and all the shades in between.
Re: Not Adventurous Enough
An elevator to the moon would be more feasible.
It would take 7 years to build the China bit, 10 years to build the Russian bit, 9 years for the Polish bit, 8 years for the German bit, 12 years, including 2 hour lunch breaks, for the French bit and then 100 years for the English bit.
If you can't beat them.... Tax them.
"so it could be argued the malware mostly preys on the foolish using basic social-engineering trickery."
Pretty much accounts for 98% of the users. They do after all have an Android phone as well.
Re: Look at the up-side
They can rename it 'The Surface Cuboid'
It will probably be as wide as it is fat.
Re: Any surprise?
Correct, I have the first retina screen iPad, why do I need to buy something new!
It is patented though!
Exploitation learned from Apple perhaps?
Re: Bloody hell.
This is just sleight of hand and mis-direction, while everyone focuses on this they are moving something in by the backdoor....
They release something like this just to garner interest and advertising.
They have patented 'deception'
Re: When you think about it...
It is so much hassle to think of something so inane, uninteresting and downright boring to publish to the rest of the population in the hope that you'd find some empty headed yokel that might accidentally follow you and be interested in what you have to say.
The bottom line is that no one cares what you have to say, it's all about self interest.
It's easier to not tweet than to tweet. I prefer the simplicity of silence.
Up voted for being honest.... With all that overtime you earn you'll be able to book a great holiday while signed off on the sick.... through stress.
I can hear a symphony of violins playing in the background....
Because most of them are worried their jobs may be outsourced, threats of redundancy and that they are being asked to do more with less and for longer.
They do not have a monopoly on stress, pretty much everyone is in the same boat.
Yes and the bribes allow ten times what is 'found' and seized to continue their journey.
This announcement is just window dressing.
It can be black or white or any colour, it will be multi shaped with wires that may or may not run through, around, over or past it. It is multi-functional and may or may not have attachments. It also has many purposes yet to be defined.
Patent number 2947654/235/23-89164.
It says everything there is to say about banks.
As it was paid with money stolen from their customers I suppose they didn't really care how it was spent just so long as they could off set it against tax...
What do you mean they hardly paid tax themselves, just used customers money instead.
Re: 'Camera Failure' pop-up error message
Your probably correct when you talk about Apple patenting the pop up, not surprising really when you consider that Samsung likes to follow the leader.
Fingerprint reader anyone...
Re: Doesn't matter who "invented" it
Yes it does, he was British.......... our Tim
Then the US stole it and took it over. Americans like to re-write history usually by using script writers making films.
Why not let the US have oversight, like they do across the world.
Re: There was twice as many Samsung phones but the headline mentions only iPhones?
4x iPhones, 4x iPads, 8x Galaxy's.
This equates to '5 cases'?
Not exactly a Master Criminal more an opportunistic individual budding businessman.
I'm sure I played it on a large coffee table kind of console at the local pub.... Unless it was the beer clouding my memories?
If it's as good as their watch it will be crap.
Old Boys Network
If I remember correctly Kim Philby got his job on the say so of one of the top security Knobs because 'he knew his people'.
It just goes to show how ingrained this kind of thing is and how so many of the top jobs go to those in 'favour' 'friends' 'advisors' etc
They try and tell you this kind of thing doesn't happen but increasingly in the upper echelons this is being promoted. Jobs for the Boys, old school tie, friend of the family, mates....
To top it all they are trying to select Tony Blairs son to stand for a Labour safe seat in the next election.
Nepotism at its worst especially when you consider Kinnocks son has also got into the act.
They are all at it, establishment established practices.
Re: Fair dues...
No one buys them.
Having been a victim
Having been a victim of lost luggage on a short break to Greece, my luggage holidayed somewhere in Spain for 5 days before being returned to me the day before my break ended, it would have made no difference to me knowing where my bag was. I still didn't have the bag.
On the plus side there was the compensation...... Paid for the holiday and a few new items of clothes.
A spy satellite is a spy satellite.
Agreed, they know everything, these figures are being used to placate the population into believing there are controls in place.
We all know there are none.
Did they not?
Did they not consider testing them?
Previous battery snaffu's were relatively easy to rectify, unclip the old one and replace with a new one.
Built in is a little more complicated, replacement please.
Re: Finally some sense!
He's been inside long enough to claim remission of sentence.
He may be entitled to a little compensation though.
20 million would be fair I think.
Re: Could not have timed it better
The point of this will be?
Won't make a difference if someone is already living on Mars.
You do realise that he is not dead, he is just in hiding and lives next door to Elvis.
Re: population growth
They breed like rabbits in my house........... No wonder they all have smiley faces.
Anyone remember that loss making French Tyre factory that had to close down due to lack of productivity.
Some American was asked to put it right and get the business into profitability.
The French Unions vetoed every idea he put forward.
Slightly longer working week? Non.
Cut back on breaks? Non.
Up productivity? Non.
Weekend working? Non.
Increase in shift hours? Non.
The average worker in the factory attended 5 days a week, 7 hours per day.
During each 7 hour working day he had 2x coffee breaks of 30 mins and a 2 hour lunch break.
Total productive time was less than 4 hours per day because another 20 minutes was wasted getting back from the breaks.
So the average 'working day' at the coal face so to speak was 3 hours 40 minutes or the equivalent to 18 hours and 20 minutes.
It's only because they are so paranoid.
Another wind-up story.
Just like the NSA and GCHQ
Rubbish, just poor airmanship and an excuse to mitigate the insurance payout.
Re: And people complain about the ... @JiatcH
I wouldn't worry about Amazon in the same light as the NSA or GCHQ.
When they send me 'recommendations' or what interests me they never get it right, most of the time they recommend what I have already purchased and at other time they come up with the most bizarre suggestions.
Amazon intel is severely lacking.
I've heard it all before, 'breakthrough' 'revolutionise' 'wonder product' etc etc
Then in the next breath they will state 'we can see this reaching the market in say 2055, it will be amazing'.
Don't hold your breath.
Fantastic new for all 23 owners of the handsets.
I'm more concerned about how the US has an influence in it, at least China and Russia are more up front about their interest in taking over the world. The US is just more underhand but has the same goals.
Probably looking in the wrong direction, am I right in assuming Samsung slabs are made in China?
Re: Next up..... Increase in big business profit
Increase in big business profit, increase in big business tax avoidance, decrease in the amount of tax big business pays.
I'd have no problem with this if Microsoft, Google, Apple and their ilk actually paid a fair amount of tax. They don't so why should I subsidise them?
Re: "Someone must pay a cost".
We all do, not only the fact that we pay for the service, but we have to put up with terms and conditions that we have no control or say over, we also have to put up with price rises without real consent (it's in the one sided terms and conditions) and to top it all, we never get the speeds or service we are promised.
It wouldn't be so bad, the fact that we pay, we don't mind paying, as customers that's what we are happy to do, but the least the ISPs could do is come good on the promises of speed and when we pay for unlimited it should be a proper definition of unlimited without any caveats.
I think it looks as if some back handed deals are going on.... Also I always thought that the accused is allowed to see all the evidence against him or how else can he defend himself?
Isn't it funny that the US is screaming out against Putin and the Crimea when they can't even get their own house in order when it comes down to justice.
Looking for cheaper labour to maximise the profit, it was only a matter of time.
Watch out if you are a gardener...
Re: Iraqi wasn't a threat - wow!
The USA would see a threat in an empty room.
Re: Stay tuned...
In 10 years time he will be a foot note on Wikipedia.... Died in an unexplained car crash 2014.
Just like politics, people tend to have short memories.
