Is because a Windows person has fixed it
"Do no evil"
And, lobby for the redefinition of 'evil'
or an electric towing vehicle?
In the 30s' there were races with tethered aircraft flying round a pole - might be fun to reinvent this with electric planes
Check if he's wearing size 13 DMs
Yet want to charge (a lot) extra for wifi. So far my one man boycott hasn't brought them to their knees. One day...
Or, as I prefer to call them, consumers. Which is absolutely fine, but does contradict the point made by the article. And that's my point. It's a bit like the difference between making a music streamer from a Raspberry Pi or buying a Western Digital. One is more fun and more configurable - but you have to read the docs. The other is a consumer product
The Ark? Do you also believe Linus created Linux in six days and had a good kip on the seventh?
I'm no Windows advocate (my first comment prefixed it with 'perhaps') but it at least goes some way towards a coherent design.
Linux does many, many things very well but the article talked of 'fit and polish'. Just to give one example of the lack, linux font rendering still makes everything look like it was knocked up by the bloke who sign writes for kebab shops.
That is undeniably true - just as it's also true that the Linux distros do not have the 'fit and polish' of OsX and perhaps of Windows. Where 'fit and polish' means a user experience that's been designed by interaction and usability pros.
"the Linux desktop hit a level of polish and sophistication that quite frankly, well, surpasses what's available from Windows 8 or OS X Yosemite"
In much the same way, once I had resprayed my Vauxhall metallic turd brown, fitted some leopard-skin seat covers and halogen headlamps, it's easily as good as a BMW. After all, a car is just a vehicle to get from A to B, via KwikFit and Halfords.
That way, texting drivers could be alerted to the presence of something else on the road apart from them
If you wouldn't mind unclenching, the arcades would like their moles back
Wouldn't that be Flay, Spay or whatever that new Facepointbookpower MsThing is called
£175million? Imagine only spending that much on Universal Credit. It would have been a disaster!
I attended a presentation she gave the other day - i think it's safe to say she can read. I haven't had the same direct experience with other Ofcom heads but I wouldn't be surprised if she went through Ofcom like a dose of salts
No, one eye still uncovered. Can't be that.
Please explain why she looks like she is unable to read. I don't get it.
Really? Please explain
Exactly. I suspect she is smarter than most of us commentards
Why wouldn't she?
Comment posted from your FairTrade ethical PC? Oh no, it can't have been, since your comment actually exists.
Oh, it's SCO
What's wrong with the new open access movie distribution mechanism just being trialled by Sony? Coming soon to Warner Bros, et al
I once had an IBM keyboard encrusted with toast crumbs.
No harm done
Dear Payment Card Industry - get stuffed! What will you do if I don't comply? Force me to use PayPal instead? Hey Mr Foot, meet Mr Gatling Gun.
You are the people who invented the laughable 3D Secure standard. Your complete failure to come to grips with security is just one factor that will lead to your inevitable and sudden doom.
You have actually acheived the impossible and made Bitcoin look like a viable alternative.
In the name of Freedom!
Say no to DPRK Takedowns!
I have given it 30 seconds of my time. That'll do for me. It's very easy to use, because it doesn't really do anything. Or perhaps it does a lot - when they get around to producing some docs, we might find out.
So that's how Thomas Pynchon makes his real money
My bonus, obs
I'll have you know Babs regularly used to give me piggy-backs down to the off-licence when we needed to top up on gin, Vimto and Capstan full-strength. Of course she was stronger, back in the day, when she was still combining the singing with the part-time hod-carrying. And, she was still a bloke then...
The Danes don't want me to sit on on Barbara Streisand?
I hadn't heard of Voga.com. I'm off to look for some furniture
Yeah, that'll work against BitTorrent
It's true that, under the Basic Income system, people might raise a few bastards to gain some hundreds more quid in welfare income. Compare that to now, where you assemble several thousand bastards, call the conglomeration a consultancy, then syphon off hundreds of millions in welfare income.
Rather understated. Once you get into hundreds of £millions, surely it's a bit bigger than a car crash?
This is more like running the Toyota assembly line directly into a rail-gun and targeting the output from Nissan dropping onto a giant trampoline.
Only less useful...
Careful with that common sense - are you trying to bankrupt the IT industry?
They've saved nothing. That's notional future savings. The real sunk costs have already swallowed more than that.
In a nutshell, we've blown the budget on a busted system, but look at all this lovely pie in the sky.
At what point will Ian Duncan Smith be publicly hung, drawn and quartered for his disastrous mismanagement?
Does it go, 'pew-pew, pew-pew-pew'?
So, Juan was the ponce. Who was Leon?
If you have kids who print homework in colour, it's actually more cost effective to just give the teacher a £20 note
We should be allowed to contribute to specific body parts. The size of each part in the finished sculpture will be related to the amount contributed.
Google advertisers will love it. More demographics to target
Job security, that is.
Alternative theory - being a nutter causes cancer
With the advent of driver-less white vans - will the Union Jack industry go out of business?
Perhaps it can - if the road passing over the motorway is pointing in a different direction to the motorway ...
