Electronic tech v Oil
Apples v Pears
Until of course Exxon have another oils spill......
That my friend is the next step.....
You might as well hand them over the keys to your house and let them sleep with your mother, girlfriend, sister and wife.
I think not.
So does this mean...
So does this mean that the Government will drop its green energy plan that no other country appears to be bothered about, except Germany, and help to reduce our fuel costs and lower taxes?
No, the great European Sting is climate change as it gives them an excuse to fleece the population with higher taxes, which incidentally are not spent on reducing CO2.
Agreed, fly by wire has been around since the first Airbus, it is a mature technology.
My car has electric steering, the connection between the steering wheel and steering rack is by wire not by by a mechanical or hydraulic connection. In 6 years never a murmur.
However, the carbon fibre technology is untested, the fuselage or wings might not readily show strike damage, whereas with a normal aluminium construction there would be the warning sign of rippling.
The first of its kind, cars,, aircraft, engines etc usually have teething problems and over the years these get iron out. Unfortunately there usually has to be a disaster before the faults are found.
Not to be an American't......
Then it is not just a battery problem...........
A design too far perhaps?
I hope not.
What do you mean Scottish Power has 2000 followers.
Do these people have nothing good going on in their lives?
He wants exclusivity simply because he needs the advertising revenue. Sharing with Twitter waters down his income.
Will Samsung follow suit?
Imagine imagine if
Imagine if Twitter added a button to report offensive tweets?
Every Tom Dick and Harry will be complaining about anything that doesn't suit them.
It will mean that twitter will have to employ a million moderators to manage the swamp of inane crap that gets published.
Privacy? Free speech? Opinion? Bloody mindedness?
Human Rights to be allowed freedom of expression?
I wonder how many times they request information from other Governments, I wonder how many times they get it?
Profits not as good as expected
Expect sign of relief from Microsoft when the discounts on Win8 stop 31 Jan
Expect less take up of Win8 after 31 Jan
20% additional service charge if you produce an Android phone.
Now while he is inside
He can educate his cell mates in the fine art of computer crime.
An ice cube melts in the oven
Ice cube in a glass of 30C water melts.
Why are ther no icebergs in the Med?
Yes but all big company bosses have these fundamental character traits, or may be I should call them flaws?
SPEED IS NOT EVERYTHING
Yes a Ferarri would be nice, but I'd be satisfied with a family estate car if it would get me from A to B in a reasonable amount of time.
This fixation on speed when Speed is not everything, a decent connection for everyone would be nice.
Re: Views vs Thumbs Up
Who do you think you are kidding Mr Dotcom?
If you think we're on the run,
We are the boys who will stop your little game.
We are the boys who will make you think again.
'Cus who do you think you are kidding Mr Dotcom?
If you think your infringement is done?
Mr. Yank goes off to town
On the 8:21.
But he comes home each evening
And he's ready with his gun.
So watch out Mr Dotcom,
You have met your match in us.
If you think you can push us
We're afraid you've missed the bus.
so who do you think you are kidding Mr Dotcom?
If you think this Yank is done.
Consumers of Samsung products no longer occupy the high moral ground.
Do you think that they will take a moment to study the Samsung device they bought and consider the plight of the people that put it together?
Just for a moment?
Look at the figures and you will see there is next to nothing in it between Samsung and Apple. If you consider that Samsung makes 50 products to every one that Apple produces the ratio suggests Apple is more successful per device than Samsung.
The markets were expecting this so I will bet that many traders are getting their hands dirty and making mega money by short selling the stock.
Looks like the money will now be sucked up in administration costs, office costs, and expenses cost while they bicker over the small print.
A desperate move to drum up some interest in the new OS and phone.
1.Landlords must address the fact that they charge over the odd and reduce business rental costs
2.Councils must reduce the unreasonable business rate charges
3.Utility Companies must offer reduced charges for businesses
This will allow shops to become more competitive.
If they are invisible how can they be pink?
They finally admit their aggressive stance!
So this is justice American Style.
Most people, with the exception of Fanbois do not see the value in buying an over priced ultra book when a normal laptop at half the price has better features.
The consumer is more canny and less likely to be mugged by advertising.
The American dilemma
Allow violent hack and slash, shoot and kill films and video games.....
Allow nasty death videos on You Tube.....
Disallow the odd titty, bare bum and nipple.....
The mentality of the American amazes me.
And I though Apple products were expensive!
Re: They have arrived!
Looking for gullible investors......
Quick way to make money
1. Promote asteroid mining
2. Promise short time scale get rich quick scheme
3. Rake in the investment
4. Buy expensive houses and cars
5. Extend time scale ask for more investment because they are so close to starting
6. Rake in more investments
7. Buy more expensive cars and houses
8. Extend timescale ask for more investment
9. Investment dries up
10. Go bust, retire on proceeds bought from investments
Mandoff would be proud of you.
Then maybe it's time to innovate and spruce up the iphone interface.
They will make gentlemanly agreements with the rich to pay back their taxes on the understanding that there will be no prosecutions.
The little people, who are easier to go after will be convicted for anomalies of £10 or less.
That's how it works, one rule for the rich one for the working man.
She's probably right but
She's probably right but who the hell is going to take any notice?
Would you listen to a bunch of MP's that spent years with their snouts in the trough and tried desperately to prevent the publication of their expenses, not to mention the MP's who tried to find 'work arounds' directly after the scandal to continue to fleece the tax payer by renting houses from each other and claiming expenses from them?
It is up to parents to resolve this issue ( I'm one ) and not for the Government to nanny me over it. Yes there are parents who have no idea or don't care, the majority do though and I for one won't be dictated to by a bunch of thieves.
The real reason
Manufacturers were heavily into promoting Ultra Books and the like, which most consumers saw as an over priced product that provided less for more.
The consumers, Fanbois excluded, have become more cost conscious and tech savvy and are not as easily conned.
Is really a Yellow Canary, who would have thought it?
Some people live in a virtual reality bubble and will believe the hype then invest their life savings into this venture.
Someone will make money out of it, but it won't be the investor. Let Bernard Mandoff be a warning to all.
Look like a real knob in these, but could they catch on and become a fashion accessory?
It would only take a few celebs seen out with them on.
I suppose it is an attempt to make the phone a more desirable proposition, though you might be better off selling them with a years free supply of petrol.
