Didn't you know the internet is for porn?
Surely you knew!
In other news...
Fox News reports the US Department of Homeland Security has issued a bulletin to other law enforcement agencies declaring the Liberator “impossible” to stop and a source of “public safety risks”.
THE SKY IS FALLING!
I'll just grab my coat and be off.
Once you find them I only have one question. Can you ride them?
"His stated aim has been to turn Sony into an Apple-like business that can provide users with content and hardware to consume it on."
But Sony Entertainment creates content to provide. Apple just takes thirty percent of the revenues from the content that it provides. Sony needs to find the trick to getting the consumers mind-share back and mending some of the bridges it's burned with them in the past.
Re: I really get tired of this bemoaning 'evolution instead of revolution'
"so can we please stop this 'oh company X has lost its way - its new phone doesn't even have time travel!'"
I believe that's the Mark 40 you're thinking of.
Oh look, a banana. I love bananas.
It's comments like that...
"I can't see Google transforming Android into the kind of slick experience you get on Windows Phone today."
That make me curious about what I'm missing.
But it's said ignorance is bliss.
What freetard are you:
I hope I'm one of the good ones.
"The political classes might want to think about fixing the problem with old-fashioned guns before going after the futuristic ones. ®"
But then they couldn't say ridiculous things like "I plan to introduce legislation that will ensure public safety and stop the manufacturing of guns..." in an effort to garner votes for their next election.
Passing laws to stop someone from misusing such innovations is futile as anyone who plans to use it for nefarious reasons won't be too concerned with breaking the law.
What's in your pocket?
The four Windows phone users will find this useful.
Re: A premature death?
"Er... It's ESA we need to thank actually."
I think I see the problem here, you're not an American, are you?
So what you're saying is....
"“Gamma’s software is entirely separate, and only uses our brand and trademarks to lie and mislead as one of its methods for avoiding detection and deletion.”
Fowler stressed FinSpy does not affect Firefox. “Gamma’s software is entirely separate, and only uses our brand and trademarks to lie and mislead as one of its methods for avoiding detection and deletion,” Fowler claimed."
It sounds like Gamma's software is entirely separate, and only uses Mozilla's brand and trademarks to lie and mislead as one of the methods for avoiding detection and deletion. Do I have that right?
Re: Duel use
Space Telescopes at dawn?
So I won't be allowed to own one either?
Re: too late
"if we're lucky they might struggle if there are stairs / pylons in their way."
No one would design a weapon that can't go up stairs!
...But let me just fetch my sonic screwdriver to be safe.
Re: @ mutatedwombat - Raspberry Pi Phone
Don't feed the Eadon, kids.
If FirefoxOS can give me a "cheap" backup smartphone that has a great battery life I'm interested. Otherwise I'll wait and see what what Sailfish has to offer. Of course ideally one of these would reach feature parity with Android, meaning it could replace my primary device.
Before you know it....
There will be hooded old men, who practice hokey religions telling us these are not the WIMPs we are looking for.
Someone left an ancient weapon in this pocket.
Rise of the mach... I mean network
Someone tell Google I'll gladly pay them one dollar to light up some fibre to my house.
Re: Yea more netbook junk
"All a Chromebook is, is a netbook piece of junk."
First which make and model? Second is that based on build quality, quality of software, or some other metric? Further would you rate it better if it ran Windows 8 or iOS? And finally what would you rate the Surface/iPad if they ran ChromeOS?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Re: Good news
"No more Microsoft tax."
You must have missed the last paragraph of the article. Microsoft will take their pound of flesh, whether by 'innovating' or by lawyers.
Cheers to Friday.
In mother Russia...
Stocks trade you.
I'd hate to be kicked out of that house.
<~~There is only place to board after that and I hear the little green guy snores.
Re: Galactic Greenfagging
"Fleshbags worry about "lethal gamma rays" if the engineered fission reactor in the neighborhood has a little hiccup or if food is being sterilized by passing it along a fews of cobal 60 or some nasty job in a federal office warns darkly about "dirty bombs"."
Or when a Gamma powered scientist, in an agitated state, flings a Volvo through their high rise in the middle of the work day.
Boffin because you wouldn't like him when he's angry.
"Researchers at the Max Planck Institute are trumpeting as a breakthrough the successful teleportation of quantum information over a whole 21 centimetres."
I remember when I could get my girlfriend exited over half of that. Boffins are such size queens.
Paris. The queen of size queens.
Anti-virus not included?
I suppose I'll be expected to upgrade my blu-ray collection now.
"And then there's this trivial limit called "c" "
Looks like someone already found the bottleneck.
Boffin because I'm tired of those blasted laws of physics holding us back.
How is that fair
"and its contents will be of major interest to anyone running massive Linux-based infrastructure clouds."
So this won't be available for my Azure based solutions?
Could it be!?
"Although Kim Jong-un normally likes to broadcast videos of himself trying out the latest Nork military tech, Pyongyang has not yet commented on the cyberattack claims."
Could it be that the illustrious Un is just a script kiddie and they fear we'll find out?
Because I assume he's smart enough to push a button.
Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. They are fast, faster than you could believe, don't turn your back, don't look away, and don't blink.
Mine's the one that's hiding the forth coming <quantum> tag.
"It might be a dumb mistake on your end that this happened in the first place but in the end its still described as someone breaking into your house."
I don't believe it's breaking and entering. Maybe unlawful entry followed by burglary of a domicile.
That's just my uneducated opinion though.
Is it too soon to order my "I bought an array from HP and all I got was this lousy mug" mug?
"A 'final' office action does not signal the end of reexamination at the USPTO, much less the end of..."
It's not final, until it's final, unless it's final... and all that?
Even Paris knows when she's finished.
Re: I smell a business opportunity!
Why not make use of a time machine so your message is received before it is sent? People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big bowl of wibbly wobbly timey wimey... stuff.
I'll take my coat, you know the one with the key.
So this is how we're taking down China? After their first apt-get dist-upgrade they'll be back to the stone age.
Story of my life.
I gave a girl tadpoles and she wouldn't even swallow.
Paris, because she knows what to do with the young pollywogs.
If you wanna be elite...
You gotta do a righteous hack.
Yarr, we'll be taken the booty and the baby wearing it.
So now we have to worry about quadcopters stealing our babies?
...You know, if we had babies?
"can this thing actually fit in your trouser pocket ?"
Who needs pants when you have a phone like that.
I will be needing this coat though...
The real story.
Wait, North Korea has a tech blog?
Now we can get back to the business of creating mobile devices?
From accessing computer systems for five years. Unless you're in prison, of course.
I'll wait for the next elevator.
Have you tried turning it off and on again?
“Is this the way you’re meant to interact with other people? It’s kind of emasculating. Is this what you’re meant to do with your body?”
Good question, Sergey. What does my private data tell you?
