Well considering the Yanks are seriously broke financially, I guess they are thinking of new ways to
extort legally make money to contribute to paying back this debt.
The iPad never caused any injuries, they have rounded corners.
Don't know about you guys but I'm getting seriously tired of all this shit coming out in the name of progress.
Then perhaps I'm getting too old.
surely you've mistaken the cloud for Microsoft...
Wow, so there's money to be made out of uncle Toby's hemorrhoid records - you learn something new everyday...
Apple to sue?
They surely must, this thing has rounded corners...
Are they trying to steal Oracles Java "fixes" record?
Re: Dive bar early AM + high tech 1-percenter gadget, what could possibly go wrong?
Similarly to a), there are twats born everyday and it will be repeated.
Re: Needs more zombies/survival horror.
Don't add Dayz to anything as it will never be released and will become vapourware.
"The Mac Pro is a high end professional computer aimed at people who like to do more with their machines than just look at porn and chat on Facebook."
Perhaps rename it the Mac Pr0n. They should have shaped it like a dildo too for added pleasure...
Yes DIY basically explains the mess most IT departments are in and it's usually driven by the IT managers masturbating over the latest product to come out of Redmond. Why the fsck are these managers always going on about change management and adapting when they are the last bastards that want to change anything?
Thankfully, there are some good guys about that are willing to take the plunge and change the way they do things in the name of progress and lower TCO.
Re: Smart kids in the UK are making better career decisions too
Yeah, most are actually avoiding a career in IT - now that's a smart move!
I hope these bastards aren't checking out my xhamster activities...
Microsoft..., weren't they something to do with computers at one time?
Wonder if I can patent the patent trolling concept?
If Apple are proud to be American then perhaps they should move the assembly plant to Cupertino and wave goodbye to China. Give some of there own people jobs, lots will thank Apple for it.
Apple will no doubt be suing the Iranian doctor as "Time Machine" is a trademark of theirs.
WTF - No iPads?
Looks like Steve Jobs has failed to sell God his Apples but, then again God has had a thing against apples since Adam & Eve.
I think it's a custom to give a cash gift to the subject of the Bar Mitzvah. So it's more $$$ to MS then.
I assume if Azure is Jewish then it's had a Brit Milah too...
Re: OLPC failed
Actually the OLPC did not fail but, as you stated, MS got involved and turned it in the Surface fondleslab which in turn failed.
"we might find out if NWA 7325 is a valid sample or just an offshoot of another galactic flash in the pan."
I had a "galactic flash in the pan" first thing this morning and feel much better for it...
Typing emails using MS Word is a serious crime in itself and should be punishable by death.
I had a shirt years ago which said "British made is best" and the label inside it said "Made in China".
Scientists announce they can make the Sun shine out of CEO's arseholes.
I think I saw those blokes hovering around the roadside cabinet near my place, no wonder my bloody internet is so slow - bastards!
One phrase which is guaranteed to make me tune out is "our mission statement is...". In other words all the bollocks they value in their company culture but never live up to - pack of twats.
Free WiFi for a month, isn't too bad and could be far worse like BR offering free sandwiches for a month.
Re: Better to...
Or, use the Microsoft/Adobe method which is give some fashionable clothing away to schoolkids on a regular basis, get them hooked on your product line and then once they earn a living stop the freebies and say u can have this dress based on a yearly hire cost but you're not allowed to let other people wear the garment or make alterations etc...
I guess no one would buy clothes under that crass way of doing business, shame about the idiotic managers out there that do this exact thing but with IT
Words, words, words...
We all know that the word "Google" is derived from the word Googol which is the mathematical term for the number which represents the yearly total tax avoidance for US corporates worldwide.
Ah Farcebook - you just gotta love em.
NetBSD - it runs on anything...
The "NetBSD Toaster" takes on a whole new meaning...
Windows Blue - the spot on the ass of IT
Do more with less
Saving the world with two million - obviously they've been to too many Microsoft presentations...
Re: Microsoft splashes coat of paint on Windows 8 comms apps
I actually thought it may be Clippy getting a revival.
"It looks like your trying to write an operating system..."
Re: @PushF12 (was: You can't go home again)
"Debian's just fine. BSD is just fine."
FreeBSD is fine, just trying adding a binary package in version 9.1... What were they thinking when they released this version, they are in the middle of converting to PKGNG without a convenient way to add packages in the meantime except for building them from ports of which some are broken anyway. No wonder PCBSD have decided to do things their own way.
And as for Slackware, it has its place but never as a modern distro to lead the Linux world - reality check done.
He probably wanted a bit of a challenge. Lets face it, the average Windows user PC is about secure as Swiss cheese.
Not sure whats worse, their partners bribing officials or the way they indoctrinate young kids to use their shit software via educators who aren't educated (or don't care) about software freedom.
I think there doing just fine, leave them to rot...
Wonder if the Linux Action Show / Techsnap will feature the GoDaddy troubles seeing as it's their main sponsor?
Re: Let's hear it you labor-voting lefties...
"By the way, I am a higher rate taxpayer and consider it my duty to pay the "full" amount. To find creative ways to avoid paying tax, while not necessarily illegal, strikes me as immoral - I do believe there is such a thing as "community"."
I'll raise a glass to you sir!
I remember in the early 90's before I left UK, sitting at a dinner party with my wife's relatives and some of their friends during which most of them went on the verbal attack about dole bludgers etc then, proceeded to talk about their tax fiddles with great laughter and merriment . It pretty much disgusted me and I couldn't wait to get away from that dinner party.
What a bunch of assholes they all were!
Live by the cloud, die by the cloud...
Liferia or Newsbeuter rules for me.
Oh COBOL, reminds me of a friend who went for a programming job years ago. The interviewer ask him what he knew about COBOL and my friend was up front and very honest with his reply'
"The only thing I know about COBOL is that it is an anagram of BOLOC!"
Needless to say, he never got the job...
Only a complete cu__ would do a thing like this.
Irony is that if they halved the price of their overpriced movie DVD's etc, then they might have 50-100% better sales.
Facebook - whats that again?
Never used it, never will. Social networking sites are so last decade...
April 1st gets earlier every year...
Pretty typical example of the Google gaydar in action...
Re: Too late
Welcome to a better future :)
I can see this being one big shit of a journey...
