in Soviet Russia ...
Meteorites crash into. ...
Crap, I did something wrong there.
Icy what you did there.
Re: its not exactly very usable
What are you on about? Front doors are frequently outside bars.
Re: <probably mistaken pedant>
But what is that in blue whales?
he makes a fair point
.... But in order to avoid this all he has to do is to separate the 3 measures from 1 vote into 3.
That way shareholders can let their views known about the 3 measures independently rather than the carrot and stick they are trying.
Re: Go ahead, Offend the Atomic top brass. Make their day.
" business to the mushroom cloud..."
ICBM what you did there.
Re: Time to think beyond Desktop OS
That works for Apple because they control both hardware and software side of things.
Eventually some new shiny bit of hardware isn't going to play nice with the older os and you either have to hit the forums to find a solution or upgrade.
Re: Big updates?
Where do I begin?
Next you are going to ask that the proposed application launch menu should not take up the entire screen....
are you serious?
Did a tech review on el reg really just suggest that "a better solution still would be simply to ship the thing formatted to Fat 32".
Sure compatibility is a consideration, but the difference between FAT32 and NTFS goes a bit deeper than 4GB files.
Re: Hydrogen is not a fuel
All fuel sources have inefficiencies. It is however as you point out inappropriate to consider it like you would a hydrocarbon. It is closer to steamin that it is a material that is not easily procured without putting in your own energy to create it.
It is actually fairer to compare the technology to a battery. Except one that is about as far from practical energy density as you can get. For a practical range, you need to liquify it which wastes even more energy. You then have to truck and pump the volitile highly compressed gas to a service station and accept that you can't completely contain it so
I guess it is lucky that the fuel cells themselves are not made from large quantities of very rare materials..... hmmm
Re: A bit of client-side malware is needed
That said, it would seem rather trivial to add a fake random jitter to such responses from the server. This would prevent this attack vector.
Re: It's all about Linux
One could make the same case about googarolla.
Re: Please Jobs
" Time to rise from your grave and put a stop to this."
Great, then they can sue Jesus for inventing the resurrection.
The problem is that you need to be a special copyright mathematician before you can hope to understand how that works.
I for one can't wait for Apple lawyers to argue that having rounded corners doesn't make it materially different to a rectangle with squared edges.
Re: Prior art ?
To be fair, I have not seen any other place of worship with this sort of layout.
Re: Battery near ear
But unlike these glasses, your phone's battery is nowhere near your head, especially when you make a call.
Re: Time for a change
I, for one, welcome our new ninja monkey overlords.
Re: TFS and VS
That seems entirely irrational to me. How could anyone possibly think any of Eadon's posts are even slightly trolling.
Pi = 3**
**for sufficiently large values of 3.
Re: Rip off
They need that for their tax bill
Re: The only tablet
Perhaps Apple could patent my new invention?
You see, what if there was a small hole in the side where a small plastic card about the size of your thumbnail could be inserted. This card could internally contain some solid state memory where files could be stored and read.
The customer could simply purchase such plastic cards with their desired capacity. They could call it a micro SD card.
Ahh, don't tell those folk at Samsung who definitely have no similar offering.
Furthermore, transferring large files could be done at over 40MB/s. Actually scrap that last point. I see no issues transferring 100 GB over Wi-Fi.
Re: American law does not acknowledge the existence of the phablet.
No, tablerobes are a bit more triangular than phablets.
No doubt, but there is that small issue of a flaming battery pack being ejected somewhere inconvenient.
Like whilst parked on the tarmac or flying over populated areas.
Re: "Power cars..."?
" you shouldn't use E-15 (gasoline with 15% ethanol) and car makers are saying if you do it will void your warranty"
Going out on a limb here, but perhaps better advice is to restrict yourself to the fuels your engine is engineered to work with. The same reason that you should not use petroleum in a car designed for diesel. Brazil use 85% ethanol blends.
When I first heard it I too thought it was a ridiculous request.
Then I remembered that this is a request to the same folk who think rounded corners are an invention and slowly came to realise that using logic is not a good predictor of the outcome of such cases.
of course Apple invented the fridge
Rounded corners, check
Re: I thought that flogging had been banned...
Maybe sp1 with a start menu?
I can dream can't I?
Re: crypto is intense
Your password would be used to decrypt a volume keywhich is used for your files. All changing your password does is to decrypt your volume key with your old password then generate a new encryption for the same volume key based upon your new password. The bits of your encrypted files doesn't need to change. At least that is how tools like truecrypt work.
Re: UK stats
Samsung also make phones with different OSes, so the 35% there isn't only Android.
There is no point in setting up a factory like for accessories when I know that both of them are happy without a fancy cover.
Re: TWC, sir, your proctologist called, they found your head
This should be settled in the true American way. Patents at six paces.
And according to latest modeling, they could be as little as 3 years from 2016.
Re: Is it just me....
How many double decker buses would be required to ..... No hang on, I think I did it wrong.
Re: Facebook accounting
It's all good.
I can reveal during the same month I deliberately only read el reg using google cache, so it averages out.
Re: greetings from Austria
Greetings from Oz.
We watch amused when news of imminent doom because the temperature hit 30C days (Sydney was 45.8C yesterday).
If it is only about the lack of typing, then surely something like typescript is a better option.
Another VM just sounds like JVM, Flash, Silverlight etc and will end up with the same problems.
I am pretty sue that shark optometrists have been doing this for years.
There is a term called a cap which pretty much means the exact opposite of what the word means in any other context.
Basically a $50 cap means you cannot spend less than $50. Crazy.
