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: Is it wrong...
Just need a talking Trans-Am to go with it!
Re: "Failures", surely, not "Fails"
Speak as one for yourself only then, you Limey :p
Re: Perhaps it was lost in translation
Oh, and pics or it didn't happen...
Perhaps it was lost in translation
She can't have been the first to misinterpret "La petite mort"?
Stick the Special Brew and leave predicting the future to someone else. Or wait for Apple's version of the future 6 months after it's happened.
Re: No sale here, either.
Asus Transformers. Problem solved.
Here's your coat Facebook
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! :(
Still not sold as advertised, so should be able to return it for refund or replacement, right?
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?
Yep, he's my boss's boss.
Oh and this adventure will not include a third apology in any form. It'll be a fucking huge fine and maybe some clink time for Cook if it has to go around again. When will you fanbois learn that Apple's Reality Distortion Field doesn't work outside the walled garden?
I disagree, we haven't even HAD the apology that counts - i.e. the web page.
Only once they've actually published it and they've proven that they are going to heed the court's instruction CORRECTLY can we decide if it 'all worked in their favour'.
Re: The part that I don't understand...
No, all the things the Germans judged on had already been decided by the UK court, so everything they spouted was completely wrong and should be ignored.
I don't believe this is the publication by Apple
It doesn't have rounded corners...
Contempt of Court
The biggest thing to happen to iPad since the iPad (mini).
They should count their lucky stars
That they get a second bite of the Apple.
Now can they swallow their pride soon enough to get the new apology uploaded to their site in time?
17%? Be right back...
Just nipping out to buy 5 more phones...
I love UK Power Networks :)
Re: Comprehension Fail, Lewis
The introduction of widespread 'DIY energy generation' by all the solar panels on rooftops across the country actually incurs cost to the distribution networks as well - the standard model of energy flowing only one way is disrupted and this change needs to be managed, implemented and calculated on the grid.
This costs the distribution network providers as well, as you've then got to design a system that will handle it, fit relevant hardware for metering, costing etc and this will cause charges to rise.
Although it's greener it cannot occur for free!

Re: Bloody good show
I'm sure they will cope; they seem to put looking after number 1 ahead of looking after number 10 at least.

Re: Little known fact
Got mine last night, using the amusingly titled (and fictional) "Uncle Bubba's SupaDupa PC Emporium" as the vendor, where of course I had purchased the MONSTRO 9000 model.
£15 later and it's installed on my spare SSD, and terrifying me by downloading pictures I had forgotten I had uploaded to a Skydrive equivalent in 2007...
Buy your copy today!
Re: Jar Jar Binks vs Eeyore
Oh my god, Eeyore as C3PO and Piglet as R2-D2. I am seeing light at the end of this tunnel.
Re: What's with the hobbit
I thought it was Tom Cruise? :)
I'm pretty sure
That I blew up more than one of those things in X-Wing...
But can it play Crysis?

Not to be confused with Damaged Parcel Delivered or Drop it, Hide it, Lose it.
Well Apple are certainly hating UK law at the moment!

Not as cold as Mr Waters is now!

I think we can all agree that a slot to stick your expansion inside is the most important aspect. And in tablets too...
Re: @AC Here's a test
Oops, now the faceless horde will know my name!
Re: @AC Here's a test
We would be enraged with offence if we held any provable beliefs or were of any measurable minority/majority/individual interest group, but we are Anonymous and you shouldn't accept anything said as truth, as you are completely unable to verify anything we say, so for all intents and purposes we shall remain utterly ambivalent to you.
Is this any different to the motoring industry? Does the garage on the corner have a regulator?
How about the carpet fitters, where is their regulated body?
Can we expect to see a regulator for my local hairdressers, I mean how do I know how qualified the guy with the scissors really is?
Re: Please do
I wish they'd given more notice
I would have prepared a speech!
Reality Distortion Field at work
Nothing more to see, go back to your worship.

Re: Speed of sound
But then Ickypedia also say war criminals make suitable wedding guests, so take that with a pinch!
Re: Torrents ? Pah @ AC901
Ok, explain why they still have Sky Living 1 if shows are produced purely on viewing figures...
Re: Torrents ? Pah @ AC901
They've already seen it - he just said he pays a subscription service to SKY for which they pay FX, so that they might show the channel which carries Dexter S7 in 2013, which they have already agreed to be paid to Showtime in order to secure the contract...
On top of that, he is paying for an additional service to receive something he is already contracted to have licence to view slightly sooner than the whim of the first service provider.
So erm, what was your point again? Money paid to the 2nd service should somehow belong to the 1st, even though the 1st is already getting their contractually obligated slice of the pie from the first payment he makes and they have no cost involved in the 2nd service at all?
Exactly the same case for my degree as well. I always begrudged it, because it doesn't encourage you to do the best you can in some respects.
