Re: Just as well...
The desperation is strong in this one.

Exactly. Get Vint Cerf in whilst you're at it - if it wasn't for him, none of this would have happened.
Memo to Uber: The horse bolted because you left the door open.
Oh for the good old days of J2ME.
Others sat out the war safe and sound in jail in Blighty, whilst their fellow nationals risked their lives for them.
What a shame. Such a nice guy.
Mind you, his father was a coward, his son a drug pusher and his brother a sex offender. Now his fiddle during the great corruption exposure is all forgotton, it's time he was left alone - after all, what harm has he done to anybody?
A high profile Google employee said that to me at a conf last year - off the record in a bar - but I thought it fascinating to see what these big data companies thought of each others antics. I somehow managed to resist any smart ass quips about it dodging the tumbleweeds of Google+ on its way there.
Hey you never know, perhaps Skype and Hangouts will become one? Hmm, thought not.
You'd not ever see the black part that way. The matter is being sucked in all round it in 3 dimensions. If you were anywhere safe in its line of sight all the matter in front of you would obscure your view of the hole itself, in fact probably making it a bright light as it all heats up on its way to oblivion.
You mean it's still automatically adjusting itself to the shape of your trousers each time you pocket it?
So Samsungs Android sales start to tank, just as microsoft start thrashing about with their Loonier phones and whining once again about how the next version of windows will solve mankinds problems.
In other words, they really, really need someone else to make the smartphone hardware their garbage can ruin ...
Android ICS has already been ported to the Pi, but as it turned out it just about fit but with no room for apps and clunky performance. Both are addressed handsomely with this new model. Can't comment on how iOS or Windows Mobile works on it since in this IOT crazy world their owners wisely stuck to their closed source model...
"Hi! I see you're tying to view a standards compliant webpage any quality browser released in the last 5 years has no trouble with, but you're using instead a microsoft browser. If you insist on doing this, you now have 2 choices - you can either see it quickly, but with totally broken alignment and horribly chosen fonts, or slowly with that the other way round."
If it can be used for the sole purpose IE is, that is to download Chrome on a new Windows install, it'll do fine.
Correct Dave. You see, microsoft are so loved they actually need a reason for people to loath them just to get real.
Congrats and get this down yer neck lad ----------------------------------------->
They are wriggling really hard now though.
Lumbered with an appless turkeyphone? There's an ugly rumour they will try to fix that by leeching even more from Android than they already do with their extortion racket. Jeepers, if that isn't recognition their own mobile comedy efforts are over I don't know what is.
Hey, and thanks to the pair of you who actually did write a native windows mobile app but you needn't have bothered, actually.
That's the real issue. No-one is going to use the new extensions - web users won't recognize them as addresses and they are all stupid money anyway. Since all the decent .com domains were bough up 15 years ago, and even the vowel-dropping variants 10 years ago, unless you really want xsqgglyfy.com or whatever, the only real business is waiting up to a year for renewal time and seeing how much you'd save transferring over.
its time for every other registrar on the planet to invest in new underwear.
I'd like to know if it's compatible with WinRT :-)
@Jim 59 And so it begins.
Apple invented the smartphone.
Microsoft invented the computer.
Google invented the internet.
And we all lived happily ever after in whatever la la land we're told to.
You still talking about Win 8? If they are prepared to ditch everything they know, your reasoning applies to any of the modern Linux distros.
@Dave steady on now. Even his colleagues from the Church group etc are all on Win 7. Should they ditch theirs too? You know how long it takes for them to get used to it?
Agreed, unless the person requesting support had spent a lifetime helping you. By telling them to avoid Win 8, I am helping him - its just the nasty way ms have stacked things up so those who don't know about the emperors new clothes tell him otherwise.
Not from ms, but from us poor IT admins for friends and family. I had someone this Christmas asking what laptop to buy from PC World - a good family friend in his 70's. I told him to try to get a Win 7 one so that I could help him set it up when he got home and with the occasional err, "hiccup" he will inevitably encounter. So he tried this and at the store was insistent he didn't want the hated Win 8 on, and was told straight it wasn't possible. In the end he was totally bamboozled into getting one with excellent hardware, ruined by Win 8 - something even Vista would have been an improvement over. So what the fuck do I do when he asks me for help? What do I advise others to do who ask the same question?
Lower would be to have branded this as a Microsoft or Windows phone. Someone there isn't that stupid - Joe public at this end takes one look at these and knows nothing about how Nokia was raped and murdered by them, so just sees this years new Nokia phone.
At all the Android extortion fees this Chinese company must be paying them.
Lets start 2015 off the same way it's always been, eh suckers?
I'm sure you've discussed this internally and the outcome is "no", but since I'm involved in making the same decision for various sites I'd be really interested in your reasoning.
So if quality browsers are unaffected what's the problem? You also gonna sort out that scrolling glitch on Netscape 1, and how about the lack of images in Lynx?
We pay for his time, we pay for his second house ... did we even pay for the app itself? Some enterprising journo should look into his expenses, if we did that would be an even bigger pisstake than this at first appears.
