Re: Its just a phone
<Ring Ring... ring Ring..Ring>
I've had plenty of practice using both hands, no worries there!
As a single white 30-something male with no dependants, kids or disabilities, paying my private rent without Government handouts, tax breaks or benefit allowance and working in an industry without any significant subsidies, it's about time I got recognised for being SOMETHING significant other than a tax cow, milked to support every minority group going.
2TB was the storage of 2010. This is 2013, we demand 6TB+!
"While evidence of past harm can be considered by the court, the court cannot engage in counterfactual thinking and determine what might have been,"
If only this judge was involved on all those RIAA/MAFIAA copyright infringement cases, we might have seen some sensible outcomes instead of multi-squillion damages!
Re: Proof that capitalism has to be abandoned for the sake of the world.
Well the board of my two-berth submarine company is ambivalent about the situation.
Apple says we know where you are...
And that's right where we want you.

The article is funny, but you're not.
Re: Or the fact that [Donald Duck's] last name is one letter up the alphabet from a rude word?
No, MUCK <gasp>.
It's a very dirty word.
I agree. Is it a mere coincidence that the leader of the Catholic Church chooses this weekend to throw in the towel? The proof of life on other planets is now irrefutable, and all belief in humanity's special connection to God unsustainable. He's getting out before the mouth-breathers see these pics, look at all the donations they gave in church and then mumble "Hey, waitaminute..."
Re: wrong number?
The MAFIAA and chums would disagree.
All true God-fearing Americans who love capitalism and the persuit of $$$ would suggest that Nero (Burning ROM) would be directly opposed to their ideals, allowing heathens to make EVIL ILLEGAL CURSED COMMIE COPIES of their intellectual property.
Ergo, Nero is still a huge threat to Christianity!
Re: Parents are the problem
Great story, just clarify one thing - she wasn't your girlfriend's OLDER sister, right?
Neigh, neigh and thrice neigh!

Re: That's a lot of money...
Footballers are a particular bug-bear of mine, specifically their apparent immunity to criticism for performance compared to team managers. I don't understand a process whereby a player can be bought for X million, tied into a 3/4/5 year contract and perhaps not play more than 40% of the time (and perform poorly) but still be paid in full, slathered with sponsorship endorsements and generally worshipped, but a manager can be in a job for 9 games and get the sack within 2 months because the 11 players on the pitch were crap. The players still get to stay on though.
What's a suitable IT analogy? Buying windows 8 and installing it on a Dell PC but realising that you can't figure out how to make it playback your UEFA Champions Leage Highlights DVD. You throw it out.
Then you buy another PC from HP, install Windows 8 on it and get the same result.
Then you try installing it on a Compaq. Same again.
And then you tell your mates that all PCs are shit because they can't play DVDs...
Re: Baby Boomers
JimC, the generation BEFORE the boomers had been involved in a rather awkward little situation called World War II. I think it's a little harsh to suggest that they start coughing up taxes to pay for all the work they should have been doing instead of fighting off the Nazis invasion of Europe...
Re: Those huge arena events...
A university weekend LAN in Essex, with an attendance in only double figures, was more than enough to keep the 'dry roasted peanut' odour in the atmosphere. Not only do people smell after sitting at their pc for up to (let's be generous here) 8 hours, but working machines also smell.
PCs are not hermetically sealed boxes - dust gets sucked in, dislodged, blown around, PC components get hot, things start to smell - dead skin, hair, food, general heated stuff.
On top of that, consider the environments that these machines could have come from. No one runs their gaming PC in an airtight chamber, and not everyone has good habits. Even if only 5% of attendees are smokers, their PCs will still stink the place out as they heat up. Smokers make for foul PCs.
Maybe you ought to rein your neck in and get your own prejudices in check before having a hissy fit, huh?
Those huge arena events...
Never mind the skills on show, just imagine the smell...

He'd say something along the lines of "One born every minute".
Knowing the Jobsian bandwagon, Starck's design would be replaced by one slightly smaller which casts 10% more in 6 month's time anyway.
Re: 10 years.
Ahh Mr Reynolds, so nice of you to join us.
At this time of year...
...We remember a Man who thought nothing of his own freedom and instead sacrificed himself for the greater good of all mankind.
A man who looked inside, broke down barriers others thought insurmountable and revealed to all the true glory that we had all yearned for but never dared dream to experience.
Raise a glass to him.
Thank you Jesu...
WAIT WHAT?! SCARLETT'S JUBS?!? 10 YEARS?! <faints>

Re: Anyone else
I agree, it almost seems that she doesn't want to make any decisions. Could it be because the onlyrational one is going to cost a US company a whole lot of wonga?
If Chisu was feeling like scoring a massive PR hit, she could re-imburse daddy for the trouble?
Re: Great work raising the money...
I agree. Doctor's are clearly already at breaking point due to all the female patients having tests for anything and everything (thoroughly researched and evidence-based appointments only of course), and the threat of men actually making use of their services as well is a real problem.
I know that cancer research has a particular month of focus for each of the major cancers, but I'd never really noticed the men-only prostate and testicular cancers as receiving their fair share of public interest. A cursory glance at the telly clarifies why - Children in Need steals the thunder by taking place in November every year.
Why? the public prefer to give their money to kids rather than arseholes
Still seems shifty
Unless I can't count, for a business to only make 2.2 pence on every pound of turnover is pretty rubbish, right?

Re: Extreme measures
Just some Apple employees going the extra mile to support their 'shortage of stock' rumours. Enforced scarcity = enhanced desirability after all!
Re: So what is it like?
You barsteward! What has been seen cannot be unseen, and the icon is now tainted forever! :(
The little sprat was on BBC this morning, stating that he hoped to monetize the system by charging people to link to the stories that were summarilisationified.
I suspect this will see him in big trouble - you can't go charging for other people's content without licencing, right?
