Motorola may not have anticipated the reaction of biblical literalists
Or maybe they did anticipate them, and thought, "We don't really care what a load of batshit crazy bible thumpers think", and then got on with the rest of their day.
Has anyone stopped to think of the consequences of this to the IT industry?
We're going to have bleary eyed developers wandering around looking for coffee and snack food. They'll sit about all day at their desks producing quirky random code...
Hang on, are we sure that developers aren't on pot already?
Please put down your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply.
I think you'd better do what he says.
"You now have 15 seconds to comply."
Re: NASA wont
And probably starting up a ranch of buggalo before we've even got boots on the ground!
Re: As a nation (UK) sex has always been a taboo
I remember seeing more tits in Carry On movies from the 60's than anything else I ever saw on TV.
So we're decided then
The way to stop kids from accessing porn is to burn down all the hedges.
Re: For every nutter in the UK you get 5 in the US
Yes, but our nutters are British!
Re: Now what is the result if they are just fed ordinary tomatoes.
Are you insinuating that they didn't use a control group?
Never in human history have horny little teenagers... etc
No more so than the rest of the population that enjoys porn. If you think that a horny 15 year old doesn't have access to the same material, then you've severely underestimated the biological imperative to seek out sex that appears to exist in all young boys.
Too much time and money invested in worrying about the digital boogeyman
And not enough time spent by parents keeping an eye on their kids.
Didn't I say the glacier algae would be the first wave?
Maybe when the next zombie apocalypse happens, you'll listen to me sooner!
I've seen a ruggedised mobile phone used to hammer a nail into a wall.
You can get nigh on indestructible phones, but they are bloody expensive.
Corporate tax is not a moral issue
Oh it so is! Just because it's a corporation and not a person doing it, doesn't absolve the corporation (and the people that make up that corporation) of their moral duty.
Re: We should not meddle in things only barely understood...
If I followed that maxim then I'd never get anything done!
Re: Could she be riding on the coat tails
Well she's got no achievements or skills of her own.
Close your mouth Google.
It's going in the other end.
That is an obscene amount of money to spend on a toy
Feed starving children like Bill Gates? No, it's a V2 rocket for me!
We get to watch people die on mars on live TV?
I can't see how this could possibly go wrong.
Sometimes there's just no substitute for percussive teaching methods.
I swear by them!
That's going to be one big keyring.
This is news?
Someone ought to tell Miliband that he missed that bandwagon.
Re: The value of "IP"
It's a german robot. It's not afraid of a little weather.
Re: My manager has an ant colony in her monitor.
Awesome! How much do you have to pay for one of those?
Re: What is wrong with the downvoting turds lately?
I don't think that downvoting Eadon is that effective. I think he collects downvotes and downvoting him is providing him with negative attention. If people stopped reacting to his obvious trolling, then he'd get bored and go away.
Love is not a malfunction!
Why can't they leave software in loving, respectful relationships alone?
Re: Never accuse Murdoch
How has that guy escaped jail for so long?
Re: What happens when Humans no longer have to do anything?
You'll be used as a cheap source of fuel for those of us that have to maintain humanities metal overlords.
Re: So how did intelligence emerge in humans?
I believe that one of the prevailing theories at the moment is that our intelligence was a consequence of our ability to throw rocks at targets with a great deal of accuracy.
Re: driving exceeding certain criteria
Won't this foster a behaviour to game the system rather than drive safely? If braking harshly is going to up my insurance premiums, I may chose another evasive maneuver that may not be as effective.
How does being tracked translate to cheaper car insurance?
It doesn't seem logical.
Re: What type of information it can reveal about another person?
Presumably that would be any information that the person in question had made public.
Google bribes government officials
And the police do nothing about it. This isn't even the thin end of the wedge. Big companies do this all the time.
Then you shouldn't have turned off safe search then!
Leather Goddesses of Phobos
Another game title that came with a scratch and sniff card :)
Re: More importantly
There are boobs on the internet!?
So just turn autocomplete off on google.de
The problem magically goes away then.
Re: international dissemination
So like the 56-bit/128-bit encryption issue from a few years back?
Re: but let's be honest
Not only can I not afford it. But I'll never be able to afford it if my taxes have to keep subsidising big businesses that can more than afford to pay the tax they owe.
It's not your data though is it? It's theirs. But I get your point. They are making money indirectly from you paying for a service. Rather than make you pay through the nose for the service, they could be using this money to lower your bill.
Maybe you'll see a lower bill in future as EE now has alternate revenue streams.
(Yeah, I had trouble keeping a straight face when I was typing that)
Shouldn't the UK Gov start upping it's game then?
It's not like the government has to ask companies very very nicely for their taxes. Why can they not do what they do with the rest of the populace and just take the money?
The companies that pay too much tax can always claim it back later.
Re: dangerous precedent
There are plenty of files that are illegal to possess.
But I agree that plans for a weapon are not a weapon. Plans require a certain amount of expertise and tools in order for someone to turn them into something that works.
Otherwise, I'm probably in a lot of trouble for owning the plans for a Deathstar like battle fortress. That's got to be a weapon of mass destruction in anybody's book.
