Samsung turns screws on Apple, hikes A6 processor price 20%

Dirk Vandenheuvel

Re: I wonder..

Chinese companies will pick this up in the next few years. Samsung has everything to lose, not Apple. Hardware manufacturing is easy.

And that is why a monopoly by Samsung is a bad thing. Everybody that doesn't like Apple will be happy, untill you all have to pay more for your mobiles/tablets/microwave ovens.

Wow

Kinda funny to read another head-in-the-sand article about climate. I guess we will leave the problems to future generations then... that has worked very well in the past.

How politicians could end droughts FOREVER: But they don't want to

"the supply of which is effectively infinite"

Yeah... I think I have found the flaw in your plan. How many times in the past have people used natural resources as effectively infinite? Look what happened there.

There is also no such thing as a free lunch.

Fail headline

Headline is wrong. They are melting but new extra ice is formed at the top of the mountains and that compensates (probably from more water in the air).

New account of Flight 447 disaster published

Dirk Vandenheuvel

True...

It is very weird they continued to pull up. You natural instinct in a stall is even to go down and increase speed, your body can usually feel a stall. All very strange. Then again I have never experienced a stall in a big plane like that, maybe you don't feel it.

Errrr??? I guess it depends on what you would describe as "extreme".

What about the almost total wipeout of see-life during the Permian–Triassic extinction ?

Is this article a joke? Energy is still WAY too cheap. Our whole planet has become addicted to cheap energy and we are doing silly stuff as a result.

"It is super safe! ". People have said that about all secure payment schemes in the past, you underestimate the creativity of people who steal and the technology available to organised crime to deal with this new electronic payment system.

Reminds me of the 80s... where games consoles used to wave bits around to pretend they havd more power than a less endowed competitor.

Oh well.. I guess there will be idiots who will want a "QUAD CORE!!!!" phone.

I got an SSD last year as a boot disk and I will NEVER go back. The best thing that happened to my PC in years. W7 boots up in just 7 seconds. PCs should come standard now with SSD boot disks IMHO, it just makes the whole "computer" experience so much better for all users.

Microsoft updates Hotmail to deal with grey spam

Dirk Vandenheuvel

It is an email client people... what is "relevant" or "not relevant" about reading some text from other people on the planet? Seriously.

What seems to be relevant is the need for internet people to be "edgy" and "emo" about just anything nowadays.

At least Hotmail is not an excuse to ad-spam me (yet).
