Re: I am thoroughly confused by it all
I don't see anything wrong with looking at someone elses software and thinking "I can do a better job than that." and then going off and writing a similar piece of software.
If you're not copying the source code, it's not plagiarism. It's simply building a better mousetrap. For example, Dyson built a better vacuum cleaner, even though the concept of a vacuum cleaner had been around for a while.
Re: Won't fit a laptop ?
You can make it fit with a few taps from a #5 adjustment hammer.
It's no substitute for actually knowing stuff.
Re: Is this the same Rapport...
The Rapport software checks that you are using the real HSBC website and not a fake.
But what checks that you're using the real Rapport software and not a fake?
They obviously haven't thought this through!
My favourite way to destroy the planet
Red Rover, Red Rover
Will this rover be able to dust off and repair the other two rovers?
Re: Is it worth the effort to hack?
Everything is worth the effort to hack!
Even if it's just to see if it can be done.
This isn't just about pedos
That ruling could easily cover any fantasies you might harbour about punching your boss in the face.
Depraving, corrupting, or obscene
Yeah, That pretty much describes texting the missus.
That's a Nintendo DS!
That other picture looks like an Asus Transformer.
Yeah, you don't mess with kids, or cats.
Anonymous seem to really hate that.
"Those caught misusing the network will face disciplinary action"
Unless they're caught on a BDSM site.
These companies make ship loads of money
Why the hell to they need a tax break?
This is the cancer that is killing /b/
Fucking samefags posting unoriginal content.
Rather than a lengthy court case, jury trial and involving all those lawyers
Tom Daley should be allowed one free opportunity to punch the kid once in the jaw.
It's what would have happened if the kid had the courage in the first place to say it to Toms face.
Alcohol was a possible factor
No fucking shit!
To paraphrase the article
Don't buy Ubisoft software. Their games will bugger up your machine, and in the event that they don't, you'll be lucky if the games don't implode and stop working anyway.
"and then finding it is the reason for his slipping grades"
Correlation =/= causation
or something like that.
Re: No it wont...
The only way to tackle this is to change parents perceptions of what they are buying their kids.
You wouldn't buy your 13 year old son a porn movie would you? Likewise you shouldn't buy your 13 year old son an adult video game where he can steal cars and beat up hookers.
It's common sense really.
Re: Anyone ever think
I don't think you'd ever catch a lawyer acting so dishonestly.
If you're going on a job, remember to pack the right tools

Re: Just think
Re: odd out there
Have you tried holding a handful of antihydrogen?
Gamma rays and exotic particles everywhere. It's a total mess.
I thought that the ice melting under skates/skis theory had been investigated and rejected.
Any communication over an open connection has the potential to be eavesdropped on.
And this goes for Skype, MSN, IRC, Trillian, Habo Hotel, speaking on the phone on a crowded train, conversations at bus stops and many many more.
Bonus points if you can figure out how to have an encrypted conversation at the bus stop.
Re: Wrong end, guys
That has got to be a parody or something!
We can be sarcastic on the internet again!
This is obviously a spoof or parody
I thought that spoof and parody was protected speech.
Can't you just send this guy up with LOHAN and a box of matches?
So what are their plans should a wave of zombies start infecting the UK?
Surely that patent has to be in the public domain now?
Can you not get a 3rd party patch to fix it?
I'm sure that some enterprising programmer out there has made one.
At this rate
It would be easier to keep records on people that were entitled to live in the country. Like birth certificates or immigration papers or something.
What exactly is 218 patent?
From the article, I can only imagine it to be some sort of thumbnail.
I'm sure that it can't be that though, because that would be a patent of the bleedin' obvious.
Scientists with the best of intentions build jellyfish bio bot!
No.... This doesn't sound like the start to an apocalypse movie at all...
Still pissed off with ATOS screwing over disabled and sick people
And unfortunately, that's all I can think of whenever I see their name in an article.
As I understand it, just viewing your words and making a temporary copy of them on the back on my eyeball is tantamount to a copyright violation.

That's what they'll do. They'll call it something else.
