Yes, Google can afford to lose $9bn in Motorola sale. But did it really?

Himalayaman

Do we actually care if some evil (yes I know) big fat corporation lost a few billions???

Sinclair's ZX Spectrum to LIVE AGAIN!

Himalayaman

This is a scam... this is not a remake of a Speccy, just some stupid BlueTooth keyboard and apps running in emulation.

If this was a real Speccy remake with just an HDMI out, I would bite. Now? No thanx.

Sinclair’s 1984 big shot at business: The QL is 30 years old

I loved my QL... one of the first things I wrote for it was a cross assembler to facilitate programming on my Speccy :)

Why 2014 might just be the year of the Google Chromebook

They are selling better because Joe Average has no clue what it is and it is cheapo.

Android, Chromebooks storm channel as Windows PC sales go flat

I wonder how many people will be amazed that their brand new Chromebook is basically a paperweight, albeit a rather cheap one.

Ugly and low battery

Didn't Samsung get the nota? When you want to upgrade an existing product (a watch) you don't destroy its main features.

Did people really expect Snapchat to work like that for very long? There is no way that transmitted bits/bytes cannot be intercepted and saved.

Smartwatch makers: You need apps to beat Apple

Himalayaman

Maybe they should think about hiring an actual designer. These monstrosities look like something from the 80s. If Apple ever brings out a watch, I bet people will buy it for the looks, not the apps/features.

Hey mobile firms: About that Android thing... Did Google add a lockout clause?

Re: So in other words

Yes and MS paid a lot of money in fines. Time for Google to pay up.

Sony sucker-punches Xbox on price, specs, DRM-free gaming

Himalayaman
Holmes

Sony running themselves into the ground

I guess that is what you get when a company like Sony starts to think forum posters are their customers. They have a business to run and, while their stance is brave, it will also be financial suicide. In the end the X1 will probably offer a more satisfactory way of managing your games to the iPad generation. Who the hell lends out disks or puts them on ebay anyway nowadays? The future is digital!

Monitor-makers ponder Android-powered touch screens

Himalayaman
Holmes

The nonsense continues...

And manufacturers keep on putting Android in any device in the hope they can make some money and become a bit more like Samsung.

" For about twice the price of a conventional monitor?"

Ha that explains things.... gg

It is just a matter of time before Azure overtakes Amazon. It just is a much better service.

Microsoft carves out 'niche' in tablets, says numbers chap

TBH... probably 70% of those Android tablets are 50 euro plastic devices made in Chinese sweatshops bought by people who think they need a tablet.

Linux in 2013: 'Freakishly awesome' – and who needs a fork?

Himalayaman

This also baffles me. Does that mean there was a lot of shit wrong that they need to change all the time? BSD has a much lower code churn.

Himalayaman

The fanboys are out it seems. Not a surprise ...

Anyway... this looks more like a cross deal since Foxconn also owns quite a bit of patents.

I wonder if it would be possible to get your hands on one of these? I used most of the 1980 machines, but never a Lynx. Hmmm... maybe there is an emulator?

Himalayaman

"that would seem to be the effective end for the dream of a renewables-powered future for humanity"

If true that would also be the end of humanity.

"The only zero carbon, scalable, power-efficient solution is Nuclear Power"

True... but ofc you know we can't power the earth for very long (we will run out of fuel rather quick) with that unless we get fusion going soonish.

Re: "Mother Earth is Angry and Punishing Wicked Mankind"

It is called an eco-system.It has build in systems to compensate... just not for very long if things get bad. Melting polar ice for example has been able to keep global warming in check for now.
