Isn't it Interesting
That reporting in the media still has that air of desperation and hysteria, so they are able to sell more papers or online adds. Really makes you think that nothing in the media business has changed in 13 years
No, what I was trying to say was don't accuse Microsoft of trying to manipulate markets when Apple has been caught doing the same thing and Google has been caught manipulating search results for their own benefit.
I've used ipads, Microsoft tablets and Android tablets. They all have their area of suckiness
I really don't give a fuck what you use.
They can say it sucks without ever having seen or used one because they are IT Gods. and so everything they say must be true
Re: It has come to this
The sneering derision come from ifans and fandroids. These people are fucktards who think that no-one else is allowed on their patch. They themselves can't play nicely as they sue each other into oblivion about rounded corners swipe to unlock. If they are the future of computing, god help us all.
Grow up little boy, competition is good for everybody, even from companies that have tried to manipulate markets to their own benefit (I'm looking at you Apple) and squeeze the opposition out.
And yet, here we are, trying to limit how they do their job and then complaining how ineffective they are at doing it
Re: In other words
I think you don't understand what the article says. Labour was the party that wanted to implement a "Great Firewall of Australia". Luckily there was so much noise that they had to run away and hide the idea.
Re: Science? Tish!
Which is much better than the off-with-the-pixies labour party who wanted everyone to believe that the world was going to hell in a handbasket and they borrowed money to fund their donations to other countries. For christs sake, they couldn't even decide who the fuck they wanted to lead them and then they called all of the labour politicians back to Canberra (at taxpayers expense) to hold what was a laughable election for a leader.
At least the two Labour PM's had the sense to resign from parliament, eventually. One was labelled the worst Prime Minister ever (she set the female movement back 50 years) and the other one was a standing joke, even amongst his own party. He was worse than a sheila when he announced his resignation yesterday. All showmanship and no substance. Talk about cry me a river. He was a person who divided the party and was only interested in how he could advance his own career at the expense of others.
Labour lost the election because people were sick of the infighting, lack of policies, and the lack of general direction. They handled the minority government badly and allowed minor parties too much say in the running of the countries
Labour lost the election, get over it and stop moaning.
Fuck Adobe and their shit software. It took a security breach on their own network to wake them up. The sooner they disappear the better off we will all be
Re: We can all agree that
Rubbish, no-one should be forced into Open Source. It should be good enough that people see it as a better option than its competitors.
Sounds like a lot of sales speak, something Linux has avoided until now
You forgot your <sarcasm>. tag. Some people here will think you're serious
Re: <3 Apple innovation
That part I have no issue with. Its all the crowing from the fanbois about how great Apple are for giving away for free what is essentially a service pack, something that Linux and Windows users have gotten for free for years.
When the next version of OSX comes out, people will be charged money for it.
Re: “talking through her hat”
I agree and I used to be a volunteer
Re: @Andy Prough
and IOS and OSX
Inapp purchases has raised its ugly head. It will be interesting to see what the capabilities of the "free software" is and what you will have to pay for extra functionality
Good, I hope its soon. Assange is nothing but a self serving, self promoting git
Microsoft doesn;t charge for service packs, Apple does
In 1882 Australia, then a lowly and rough-house colony, defeated the motherland England at cricket. Wags in Blighty published a fake death notice for English cricket, declaring its Ashes would be taken to Australia for burial. The idea caught on and the two nations have competed for The Ashes ever since.
And the Poms have been sooking about losing that game ever since
Re: Rupert will save us all !!
Remember the filtering debacle the Labor government tried to foist on us. Their version would probably require we submit to their filtering because they own it. Remember it was "to protect the children"
The best thing to Come out of the election
Is that Assange didn't get a seat. He is a self serving egotistical moron who believes that everyone's private information (except his) is fair game. He wants the whole world to be run as he would like it. We just got rid of one egotistical moron in government. We don't need to replace him with another.
Re: LNP policy
Stop chanting slogans. They make you appear stupid and uninformed, while not adding anything meaningful to the conversation. Name some things that the Research Organisation have produced to bolster your argument.
Didn't think so
The issue with the NBN is that the government controls the company that will run it. We have a company at the moment that people loathe, that was once owned by the government and then privatised, except that the government still has a 51% share in it and still can't run the fucking company properly.
Remember the Internet filter, the Government will use the NBN as a lever to get it in place finally (can you say NSA). Let private enterprise build the NBN equivalent
unticked the wrong box
Re: Dream list by dreamers
They just did, and they won
Re: Grey importing??
don't threaten us like that or we'll continue sending Neighbors and Prisoner
And how is this different from many of the other apps on there that give you the app for free but charge you to use the backend services
I think AI will reach its potential when the soccer robots fall over after a collision, grab their ankle and roll around on the ground. We will then know that it has reached the intelligence of a Division 1 soccer player, which is probably around the 10 year old mark.
Re: Yesterday was more important
Whats a duck doing running that fast
Why not keep this investment in US jobs
Or a good scotch
Vodafone should just die already
Moved all business services away from Vodafone a few years ago. Their service is crap, their corporate billing system is crap and this new service will be like putting lipstick and a dress on a pig
Then obviously you have'nt been keeping yourself up to date.
Only tourists and people who don't know better buy fresh fruit and vegetables from Coles and Woolies. The locals get their fresh food elsewhere. Maybe you all should get out of the cities and actually take a look around Australia. Sydney is for tourists and fools.
typical poms, whinge, whinge whinge. You must have been shopping in the city. No-one pays $3 for a lime, unless you're a tourist. At least we can get fresh vegetables and decent food here, unlike in old blighty, where the food is stodgy and so are the people.
Just as well
And its about time. There are numerous layoffs of IT Workers happening and been happening over the last 6 months. Get the ones made redundant working and then start thinking about bringing in outside workers, not before. The skills shortages that businesses have been bullshitting about is rubbish, all they want to do is offshore for cheaper labour and not invest in their workforce. Its now coming back to bite them in the arse as consumers don't want to talk with people who they can hardly understand
What a great idea. I have my wife's number on my mobile phone under wife and I press the button and it calls her. I don't know what her mobile number is and I don't really care, I can reach her easily. If I have an accident, all someone has to do is to look for wife on my contact list and they can phone her. As I am nearly 60 years old and have a few friends who are older, having a service like this that they can just call their son or daughter would make their lives really easy. Its also a really good idea if someone could pick up the mobile and easily contact a relative of the person who owns the phone in the case of an accident. I don't live in the Uk, but I see that a service like this would have many benefits.
