You think it's not been done yet?
The best scam is where the mark doesn't realise it's a scam. This happens a lot!
DDoS attack..... As funded by the USA.
The market in small tablets and e-readers is becoming saturated with many higher end devices failing to reach their potential.
Damned if you don't
Damned if you do
A way to put the blame on someone else
The Government attempts to distract the public by blaming google for doing something that is perfectly legal.
Is this a bury the bad news day?
Re: Google to alter search results to hide PIRATES
Does this mean any blog, any tweet any mention of pirate sites in news articles, tech sites etc will be demoted?
If El Reg runs an article mentioning said sites will El Reg find itself on page 99999999999999999999?
I cannot see how this will effect things if some blogs ' try xxxxxxx site which as a proxy for xxxx'
Or will you be punished just for blogging 'had a look at Rapidshare'
Oh dear this just will not do.
Censorship is already here.
It doesn't need extra Laws, because lets face it, how many times have YOU wanted to say something but have not said it for fear of any repercussions?
It is called self censorship because in the back of your mind you don't want to offend someone just in case they 'can't take a joke' complain to the police and you get a knock on the door and prosecuted for hurting someone's feelings.
Recently a celeb withdrew from a social media site because she could not cope with negative comments.
I'd say don't put yourself out there if your skin is that thin.
If I have offended you, well tough because you can't like everyone.
The next step...
A built in Sim!
A slap on the wrist emphasising just how serious the offence was.
Sneaky leaky and it is all still supposition.
It will happen and it will happen more and more.
As systems become more complex there is more to go wrong.
Maybe they should have put a sticky label on the plug 'do not remove from socket!'
They real desperadoes
How far will Facebook prostitute itself is the race to put money in the bank.
Facebook targeted advertising
Facebook fake users
Facebook harvesting data
Facebook advertisers ripped of by fake pay per click
You name it they will do it for the cash
There used to be a time
There used to be a time when policemen knocked on the door and asked, politely, if they could come in.
Bit of an over reaction here don't you think?
Based on a military principle
It has to be soldier proof, or in this case Mars proof so
Keep It Simple Stupid
The more complex the more to go wrong, that's why rifles only have one hole for the bullet to come out of.
It's a safety feature.
It just goes to show
It just goes to show how hard hitting this recession is that phone users are so short of cash that they cannot afford an iPhone and have to opt for the cheaper Android alternatives.
They just cant afford to prosecute 99,000 copyright infringements. It would take the courts a thousand years to get through the list. And the courts would have to pass on the fines so it wouldn't even make any money.
This was seen to be coming a long time ago.
Re: could be important to compete?
Will this mean Linux will finally come of age when all the manufacturers dump windows in a temper tantrum?
To be completely safe it is advisable to carry you mobile phone in a lead lined case and to use it only one in six months. Failure to follow these instructions may lead to injury.
We hear this all the time over
Butter, alcohol, suger, fast food, eggs, milk, smoking etc etc etc.
Health warning everywhere, if we followed all the advice we'd lead extremely boring lives.
Re: Next stop
Classic, 'we're eating.... People!'
Anything for cash
Anything for cash hey Zuck!
Facebook must be desperate for the cash, so how long before children get involved in the gambling.
How secure will your credit card be?
They'd sell their own Grandmother for profit.
We should judge them by our standards.
Children are just that, children.
All of them deserve a good childhood and protection.
If judging others by our standards causes some embarrassment to the governments and companies involved then so be it, the hope is that this will finally change lives for the better.
While to some fans the new assistant is a bit of eye candy, sadly she has little acting ability.
It appears the parts that failed had 'Made in China' stamped on them.
Even Russia has got into sub-contracting on cost issues.
They should say it as it is
Say what they want us to hear
Then there would be no confusion.
There's an awful lot that public bodies don't want you to get your hands on.
Not one skeleton in the cupboard, but millions just waiting to be found.
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.
