Let the fanboi flaming commence!
The Fire is good for what it's supposed to be: an E-Reader. Works great for that. A tablet, the Fire is not, although it really want's to be. Amazon would do well to have the next generation figure out what it want's to be when it grows up.
An IT journalist that doesn't have a decent laptop. Your credibility is shot. Further, you couldn't get your workload sorted out before heading out for vacation? Should have filed this clap-trap under EPIC FAIL.
Seeing as how useful the United States Naval Submarine Service has been in the last 11+ years of ground conflict, and how successful they have been in thwarting at-sea piracy... I think I can see where there might be some budget cuts in the future...
Car catches on fire? Oops, sorry, you signed on the dotted line, we're not responsible. How on earth can M$ get away with this fuckery?
Made in the USA.
Nice to see a private company literally putting their own money where their mouth is.
Is it a marketing ploy to get people to upgrade? It wasn't broken, but M$ just had to fix it.
Probably cheaper than using kids to shovel coal...
Then again, it's Apple. They'll get around those pesky anti-slavery laws somehow.
Probably running some form of Windows.
And yet they wonder...
Why big companies send their facilities offshore. He's just pandering to the right-wing base in Iowa, but it will likely come to nothing.
Snakes at the Walmart. Why hasn't Hollywood thought of this?
Re: Englican or Ameriglish?
Smart people can sort it out.
You lost me
At Paul McCartney. He has a dog in this fight? Christ on a crutch...
What happens in Vegas...
Hookers and blow all around!!! That will keep them distracted.
Couldn't have picked a better place.
If they were looking for remote, they got it right. Not to mention it has not 1 but 2 airports (?), and by all reports from my friends that live in "The Land of Enchantment", they could use the jobs.
"If there was a government backed program to educate parents on how to monitor their own kids on the interwebs then I am all for it..."
Sadly, that won't happen. Too many mouth-breathers.
Think of the children! I thought the US was bad about being a so-called "Nanny State"... Sounds like you folks in the UK have your mothers looking over your shoulder while you surf the internet. Let me know how that works out for you.
People still use this shite?
Oh dear. Maybe for a very small business, as for me, I don't like software playing nanny. A task in which Symantec excels.
What is this fuckery? Next they'll try to say that it defends against cyber-terrorism. That'll do the trick.
Used to be fun...
But it seems as though all the Zynga games are more like work than play. One thing that really put me off was I bought my wife $20 gift card, thinking that she could use it on multiple games. Wrong. Good luck Zynga. Maybe if your games didn't require constant feeding with our hard earned cash, and having to add total strangers as friends to get new things, you'd might be doing slightly better.
Good luck with that...
I doubt even mighty Micro$oft can bring down the Great Wall with a trifling $1,000,000 lawsuit. Better off building an update that crashes non-registered versions. I'm sure the kids at Redmond are well trained in that art.
Politics aside, the JSF is going to be a White Elephant, regardless of what flavor it comes in. A S/VTOL, supersonic, stealth, carrier aircraft?
I can't possibly imagine what could go wrong with that.
But they were Irish. They'll make more.
This Just In
NASA reports that early attempts to make "Moon Shine" on the ISS were successful, they are continuing research into other spirits with the help of scientists from Scotland.
Kickin' it Old School
That's what I like to see. Don't sit and whine about the system being down, use what does work and keep the mission going. Albeit somewhat slower...
What old Sheriff Joke will do if this travesty actually becomes law? He tends to annoy and offend (and threaten) people on a daily basis.
One of the most important things that makes the WORST movie is how much money was wasted in "polishing the turd".
As for me, I voted for "Snakes on a Plane". Imagine sitting in the production meeting, and people actually agreeing to that premise. Although, perhaps there should be a separate category for movies that involve the most improbable scenarios on an aircraft.
Re: Could have had it all
As late as 2000, the US Army was still using the Commodore for weapons training (Weaponeer). The kids didn't know what to make of having to put a cartridge in the back...
Just feeding on their own. Good.
Like a cockroach
AOL just won't die. I didn't think that anyone still used iM, at least among my grown-up friends. That's why they have phones. To call people.
Just for laughs, it would be EPIC if Yahoo! bought them out.
Windows 8 is going to suck loudly if they're already trying to sell it. Who are they kidding? They did the same thing with ME (remember that?) and followed up with Vista (if a software company has to offer downgrades...), and then instead of improving a product that is perfectly serviceable, they announce that there will be no more support for XP. Suck it Micro$oft. My Linux is working just fine.
Re: CIO - Essential role
"the advent of cloud (which is really nothing more than a distributed data centre!)" is spot-on. I'm not really sure why everyone is knocking themselves out to put their collective data "in the cloud", there are a lot more options that can be kept in-house. Just because it's the "NEWEST BEST THING EVER!!!" doesn't mean it's all that good.
Is this what it's come to?
Sounding the death knell of Micro$oft? Thank you Captain Obvious, because I would have never imagined such a thing could have possibly transpired.
Innocent people don't normally fight extradition.
Smells like bullshit. If a company is in the business of security (such as it is on the interwebs), they should know full well when they've been hacked/attacked.
They likely knew about that when it happened but covered it up to keep selling their brand of internet snake oil.
Those idiots at DARPA dismiss "Joe Snuffy" as being at best incompetent, at worst some country bumpkin that wandered into the recruiting station and managed to spell his first name correctly. I know for fact that the most efficient way to dispose of bad guys is a lot of direct fire, bluntly applied.
If the assholes at the top grew a pair of balls and started prosecuting the war as it was intended, there would be no need for some "magic bullet".
Windows 98!!! My stepfather whines and cries and shakes his fist in the air because he had to upgrade to XP. I don't know how you're making it work, but well played sir. Well played.
Nothing to see here, move along
You've "Jumped the Shark". On the plus side, this is one more thing that I don't need to read.
That's mighty white of them.
