It'd serve wonderfully for much Oracle-related freude of the schaden variety, also
Re: RIAA concerned for artists?
To paraphrase the opening credits of UK sitcom 'Porridge'...
They accept artists as an occupational hazard
I found Glass quite useful, to be honest
As when someone in my G+ stream has a profile pic of them wearing Glass I know to uncircle them.
Apple make nothing that I want
Though I bet they don't believe me and I bet they think it's someone else's fault in any case.
If hubris had mass One Infinite Loop (or whatever their address is) would contain a black hole.
Not forgetting, of course
That everyone (naturally) has listening equipment and environments conducive to eking out the very lowest bits of resolution for their enjoyment.
You know, like non-rectangular damped rooms with KEF/Dynaudio/whatever speakers and pro-audio valve amps and so on (and on and on). Or whatever the current trend is for listening environments.
Not to mention the ears to appreciate it.
It helps put a little less money in the pockets of organisations like Monsanto ?
Re: "Intollerance(sic) won"
That'd depend on who you think's being intolerant I suppose.
The one chap who was discovered to have a particular point of view or the swathes of people vilifying him for for not holding the same point of view as them.
Pots and kettles
Maybe it's time for a new word to be coined.

Returning a laptop to PC World ruined this bloke's credit score. Today the Supreme Court ended his 15-year nightmare
1600% ?!?!?! Are Wonga having a Spring sale or something?
From Googling 'Wonga dot com apr'
"Our flexible, short-term service comes with a representative APR of 5853%"
Or issue stock commensurate to the scale of contribution.
Ah. But Zuck wouldn't own it then would he.
Refund the KS contributors twice.
As in second hand
So it's still for everyone else to solve
Other than the entertainment co's
Re: 60 W led?
Probably 60W effective

Am I the only one to realise
That if you put it into a monitor you can look at the screen and be looking at the person you're videoconf'ing with ?
Does anyone know if Samsung also make display panels?</sarcasm>
Also and excellent opportunity
To upgrade the fecking things to take card payments at the same time so save foraging for change in the first place.
+35 thumbs up
You can largely avoid Farcebook if you choose to. No such luck with GCHQ/NSA
Re: promises, promises
Change your info to rubbish and stop using the app. Chances are they don't version your data updates.
I thought The Agency were only remitted to foreign ops, this would seem to imply they'd been operating domestically...
And there I was, ...
Hoping this made Daily Mail readers a Darwinian thing
So... the value of stealing a currency which then devalues?
Bitcoin stuff gets hacked, coinage gets stolen, values plummets, ill-gotten gains become worthless (ish)...
Who benefits from stealing a thing that then becomes valueless?
The people whom that thing threatens - banks, governments, etc.
Ted - maybe that's what all the 'Dark Matter' is in the universe... that idiot's ego.
"a televised debate"
Because that would be the most professional thing a board member could possibly agree to do, right?
What an utter twunt Icahn is.
A curious effect though
Is that it was so believable which means most people think it's entirely plausible.
Which reflects on Apple and their public perception, regardless.
I can't think what it reminds me of more...
I'm going with Hellraiser as it looks like a dismembered body nailed to a wooden post
If anyone understood and sympathised with protectionism
You'd think it would be the USA
Perhaps Protectionism is like a fart - only your own smells good.
Who, other than Microsoft, and presumably Adobe to some degree, will be supporting this?
Or is it just another MS IE-only white-elephant clutch at some kind of ownership of online stuff to keep themselves seemingly relevant to shareholders?
Perhaps I misunderstood how and where it's supposed to work....
Re: Damn thieves
How about writing 'FIBRE OPTIC - NO COPPER' in very clear letters on the cabling.
Possibly in Romanian, also.
Cos Farcebook having your call data
Is precisely what everyone wants, right ?
They'll probably even store the calls, too, hence why they'll optimise the hell out of it to reduce data footprint
Re: Don't worry...
I think possibly that Warmists and their ilk are possibly like that idea about Tacheon pulses...
They travel backward through time so any science contrary to the beliefs of the Church of Warmology that has happened in non-warmist (e.g. 'our') past has yet to happen in Warmington-Upon-Sea and therefore doesn't exist, provoking the usual LALALALA response. QED.
I remember 30 years ago 'people saying' that if the sea level rose just 2 inches (5cm) then the world would end. Yet it rose over 3x that last century? Clearly there's a history of Sandwichboard-Wearing Doomsaying entrenched in the 'culture'.
P.S. Dont panic Mr Mainwaring!
As defined in the Bible of The First Church of the Science of Warmology (disclaimer to the sarcastically-challenged: conjecture)
Mind you, no one justified a war or massacre with Atheism (that I can think of right this second)...
There's a bazillion faiths and gods but there's only one non-belief. Mine's the one with Origin of Species in the pocket.
Re: Well humans where around 8000 years ago
You'd better check with Ken Ham about that, I think. Just to be sure....
I like the way they 'accuse' the government of trying to save money. Well DUH, they obviously don't read the news and are unaware that everyone's skint.
More like they're accusing the Government of conspiring to not give money to Microsoft.
HP Elitebook 6930P

Wow. 80 million man minutes....
Over 152 man years to update em all!
Re: It can be a grey area ...
Agreed, support in my mind (if it comes with a product purchase) expires with resale, like a car warranty.
Only the original purchaser gets the benefits of any bundled services. I'd expect to have to pay for a support contract of some sort if I bought secondhand and needed one.
"FAST is yet to come across any appropriately qualified legal advisor..."
Conversely, by their own admission, FAST must be unable to say that it is NOT legal.
That sword has two edges
Re: How about
Note to self: Add another 35 miles to expenses claim this month.
Just spotted KVM/XEN in the title.
Deleted the whole Virtualbox post, LOL.
So barter is illegal, then.
Great Googly Moogly
Who'd have thought that Twitter could be a crap investment?
Re: Just shows the monitor is needed
Yep. Nothing to hide, nothing to fear, right?
Re: Return to vanilla Android
In the Apple Cultist (AC) universe, maybe.
All I've seen IRL is people either sticking with ithings or ditching them for (mostly) Sammy or HTC, not ditching droids for ithings.
Mind you I work in tech, not marketing.
We've just been watching all the old Trek (amazing how watchable that stuff still is after nearly 50 years) and I remember an episode (The Enterprise Incident?) where Kirk pretends to go bonkers, crosses through the Neutral Zone into Romulan territory and gets nabbed by the Rommies on purpose so they can get their hands on the cloaking tech they didn't want the Romulans, seemingly, getting from the Klingons...
The Klingons had already used cloaking many episodes earlier.
In TNG, certainly, the Rommies used singularities to power their shizzle, though those Warbirds are of a significantly different class to those in TOS.
Surely this was already done
By Samsung with the NFC share thingy?
It's a bit rich for apple to patent an NFC thingy that's been done elsewhere when they don't even 'do' NFC, albeit the process might not be sharing a pitcure, it's obviously trigging a data-related action.
Though it is apple after all
Lawyers everywhere will be putting the bunting out, doubtless.
