Re: So XP becomes abandonware in a few months
No. Abandonware is a myth. XP won't become public domain for decades.
Time for both the boss, and simon, to read that little document they signed about computer security when they started....
The Beer analogy would only be fair if in drinking the beer, I left you with more beer in your glass than when I started.

Re: Blackberry who?
>>>I assume t-mobile have to run a BES type server/application layer to support the blackberry users? If so, then it's a wise choice to reduce the number of BB users to a minimum so that they can turn off the servers and save money.
Once upon a time thats pretty much what happened, it was called the Blackberry Prosumer Service, and basically meant that Blackberry were constantly polling and repelling everyones POP3 Account.
However I understand in the meantime something has changed, such that newer Blackberries no longer need access to the specific blackberry internet service that BES and prosumer ran over.
>>>"What puzzles me more is that T-Mobile US did not speak with us before or after they launched this clearly inappropriate and ill-conceived marketing promotion,"
Well why should they? Blackberry has made a point about being as far away from the end device user as they can.
Obviously Apple aren't in the Automotive business... But other than gadget to vehicle hookup, could their interest maybe be in Tesla's work in batteries and energy use?
Okay Glass..... Stop being Creepy!
I would gladly buy her a pie, not just for the great consuler lead work that she'd done, but also for the simple fact it seems she's able to tell the difference between a shepards's pie and a cottage pie.
Re: It should be blocked by the anti-trust authorities
>>>The merge between AT&T and T-Mobile was blocked, and T-Mobile is now offering cheap deals that are disrupting the market.
Which happened because both companies had an overlapping footprint.
This situation does not occur in the Cable market. A TWC customer can't move to Comcast if there is no comcast cable.
So um, what was the consultants fee to locate that £2000.
I'm guessing more?
Next time pay on commission.
They're not promoting it as an ISP-neutral platform.
It seems you've learned political code, so someone learned to code...
They already run BSD.
>>If that is true, then a supposedly superior Apple hardware build running Android would change your mind.
I have no idea how you got there from there. If the issue was with Android, then I dont see how simply slapping an apple badge on it woudl change things.
January. Admittedly it was better than the last time I held one about a year earlier.. the experience going from me tapping 2-3 times (and then makin things worse) because it was long enough for me to presume a failure to register to taking just enough time to make me wonder if it had registered my touch, but still seemed very slugish when compared to iOS.
Ive never been a fan of android. maybe its the devices that I've had in my hand, but when I've had them in my hand I've always found the interface to be frustratingly slow to open things and otherwise respond to me.
Anyone else notice this, or is it just me?
Considering all the ASA seems to be able to do is say "Please don't run that ad exactly like that again", I think he doth protest too much.
Re: Where's Linux and MacOS on the graphs?
Yes, where is OS/2 on a WIndows Market Share graph?
Anyone remember that story about a month ago that said the small dip in XP proved it was on its way out....
Wondering what the small increase in XP means... everyones coming back?
>>>Let's hope that article points out comparable remote access features are baked into major operating systems, making Crossloop and LogMeIn less-than-stellar examples of innovation or value-adding. Let's also hope that article points out that cloud services cost actual money to run, and that without cash flowing in even the small sums one can pay to rent a server these days can add up to unrecoverable bills
Lets hope we can find a writer working on a weekend who could write said article. Oh wait.
Well if they have saved lives, and Snowden had really done damage, I'm sure the PM can point to some events that have been foiled
The difference is neither ABC or NBC own or operate that Channel.
Both "Streams" are KSBW which is owned by Hearst. They contract with NBC and ABC for the content.
This is a "Duoploy" in US marketing terms. Its not the same thing as two local broadcasters with seperate local broadcasting equipment agreeing to split one frequency.
it looks like what Jon Pertwee's doctor would have worn if the Brig didnt let him off the base until he "dressed normal".

What can we say... Economics is for people who couldn't understand real Mathematics.
Re: "without contributing to its upkeep"
Low paid jobs that we then subsidise more in tax credits than we get in revenue?
I would have thought that a better gauge as to which politicians are discouraging investments in Britain might be to listen to what Unileaver and Nissan are saying publicly - UK in the EU or we go.
"O2 updated their T&C's today so that anyone who signs up on a new contract agrees for their tariff to rise in line with inflation"
That has been a standard provision of Telco contracts since the year dot...
I've said it before, and I'll say it again...
The Problem with Clouds is there's nothing holding them up... they're supported by nothing but hot air.
HSBC the bank that doesn't let poor people, sorry, non premier customers into many of its branches?
I guess that makes sense. Both have a commitment to ignore the rest of us.
Re: LOL ROFL LMAO
>>>Hmm, not convinced. As you say yourself, tulips are very different to Bitcoin. When it comes to being a currency, store of value, means of transaction, Bitcoin have all sorts of advantages that tulips completely fail at.
The difference being that Tulips actually have a practical application that will allow it to store some value and allow it to be interchanged. A bitcoin is nothing but otherwise meaningless data, that only has value because someone is dumb enough to pay for it in real currency.
Re: LOL ROFL LMAO
No, its funny cos its the same shit happening again.
At least you could eat or plant a tulip bulb.
In other news, the bank of Netherlands iis now accepting Tulip Bulbs....
Re: The real problem is people like real cash
No thanks. At least with the Dutch Tulip bubble you could eat or plant the bulbs.
Doesn't make sense?
You know what makes even less sense? Adding another annoying stupid non interconnected messaging system to the Internet?
Bravo to google for actually settling on email.
But, um, there is proof of time travel
Given that XP saw a 3% market share drop, not even a tenth of its installed base, shouldnt the headline read MS Shops dont ditch XP for new years?
sounds like a loose loose situation "Herp deep, you're spending too much on new features" "Herp derp, this lack of new features cant compete"
Economics is just another word for bullshit
Here is a man who has caused millions, if not billions worth of damage by his actions. Made countries mistrust America on whole new levels and did it for no other reason than trying to make the world a little better place to live in. Will they learn ? Ever?
If I witness a crime, is my testimony what sends the criminal to jail, or the criminals misconduct?
So much for "If you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide"
Re: If this is going to be regulated...
Indeed... That would make sense, and only be what everyone else did years ago.
Sadly, UN resolutions of this sort aren't binding and can be flouted without consequence.
This is just why you have to laugh at the conspiracy nuts who are convinced the UN is the start of the NWO. They just have no clue as to how ineffectual and powerless it really is.
The contents not there because the people arent there, and the people arent there as the content isn't there.
Time to scrap it and start again.
Yeah, Im on the fence too. This kinda product is needed to blast some of the fixed gender roles we still haven't fully exterminated... so on that basis I think it sounds like a good product, and the song seems to be a perfect fit... I want them to be successful at least in selling the product.
But they used the song without permission. thats a deal breaker.
I really hope they do settle in some way that protects the beastie boys rights, and get this product out in the hands of impressionable kids.
I dunno, for windows 8 free seems like fair market value
I think the writer really underestimates how bad the courier companies really are... they're no more reliable than a drone today.
Why destroy? Surely there are better, practical uses we can put this otherwise working tech to. Give it to a charity or something.
Okay, might not work for everything, but it seems such a waste.
A way to get stuff, without having to rely on DPD (Don't Plan to Deliver), and the other mugs amazon uses.
Re: Tell you what. Mr. Vaizey...
Re: What a fucking surprise
I actually saw it, and didn't think it was propoganda at all. It seemed to be a fair biography of the other guy who setup wikileaks and isnt the arrogant gloryhound that assange is.
It was even fair enough to show him at the end slamming the movie.
In my experience, if someone doesnt want you to see a movie, then you should see it. I thought it was very good.
I'm really not impressed with this child like behaviour on MS's part. Whilst I agree with their gripes about google and the chrome book; this whole campaign seems very immature.
