Re: ABOUT TIME!!!
Oh and an app-specific firewall along ZoneAlarm lines that lets you ban calls/wifi/data/bluetooth/gps/location/etc access on an app-by-app basis.
So do I remeber this correctly...
1. Apple and microsoft become chums
2. Apple chucks out Gmaps for own malformed baby
3. microsoft sue google over maps
All the same, I think Big G have more mapping sueball ammo than either of the other two. surely it's a bit like punching Mike Tyson in the hope you knock him down by hitting a previously undiscovered weak spot in the hope he doesn't punch you back. Ever.
You know what?
If the PC vendors told MS to get stuffed MS would drop it. Talk about cart before the horse.
Well if it's a .co.uk
Tell Nominet to nuke it.
He really thinks online criminals will care?
Instead if a crim knows where you live (if your banking has 'change my details' such as name & address, then they would also be able to identify you coming out of your house.
Apple won't need genuises soon
Just a sign on the counter or a pre-recorded message saying
"You're holding it wrong"
Will suffice for all ailments... Lily The Pink would be proud.
Completely Uniform Network Topology
Terabit Wan Access Technology
Wide Area Network Knowledge Enterprise Resource System
Secure Haptic Interface Touchscreens
for a few ;o)
Re: Climate change
My thoughts exactly... the funding's hard to get cos the Warmists are so darn good at shilling for the pork so they can fund shilling for pork for a while longer.
Re: Apple have already won
Surely the reason people would buy a Galaxy or other droid tab is exactly because they DONT want apple - in my case I'd just buy nothing if what I wanted were unavailable. If you're OCD enough to have to buy something regardless of whether it's what you want or not then actually, apple is the perfect place for you to be.
Well. Least shit, anyway.
Re: Apple has peaked
Because, if the professional guessers, whose job it is to be far more right than wrong day-to-day, were wrong using their normally-pretty-accurate methodologies, well, that would mean your iThing no longer has the cachet that made you buy it.
Which is a bit like your house losing value after you bought it. Perhaps more like buying Levi jeans cos the advert was shiny and made you feel like you'd be dead cool wearing them only to find out the following week that everyone was now buying Diesel or Soviet. The perpetual peril of style over substance.
The cachet of your status symbol may decrease as well as increase...
Re: @John 104
Presumably by being anti US foreign policy... makes you a traitor and entitles your god-damned pinko-commie subversive shit-hole of a third-world nation to be nuked back into the stoneage. There's freedom in them thar nukuler bombs, yeehaw.
Quality riposte from KDC
Boot firmly in PM's jacksie. Like him or not you'd do the same given that opportunity on your plate :o)
American Dancing Bear ... conjures a perfect PT Barnum characature of the US Governance
I thank you
(Or Nipponium if it has to be -ium on the end)
Maybe they can get Google Maps back on it now
That is all.
El Reg gave the V5 phone 90%
Which seemed a bit odd to me as that's extremely high for anything and we already know it's really a bit of an iphone 4s+ spec-wise. Syndicated from a fansite review perhaps?
Snazzy new hardware with less functional software, Shakespeare's Birthplace has been eradicated among other places, apparently, in the new ios6
Only cos they can see they're plainly in the wrong even to the most patriotic of juries
Re: MS and not Apple......
Maybe on mobile stuff the app store is a way around that, and you don't have to buy an iThing, you could have Sammy, LG, SONY, etc ?
Multiply by 1.6
Means that $170 for 48GB was wrong though, That's £170 = $272.
170 dollars for 48GB
Is that actually dearer than a PAYG mobile data tariff per GB?
Re: Keen to use it as a media player
Bitstreaming? From the DLNA machine you mean? Might check MediaTomb's capability there, then.
Mind you I've just plonked OpenElec XBMC onto a Raspberry Pi so don't really use the PS3 for that any more ;o)
Keen to use it as a media player
Well. Apart from that Cinavia thing which hobbles it for playing back your own DVD/BD rips, of course, via a DLNA server...
I was going to add more but my typing got muted after 20 mins had elaps.......
And the gamma ray mega radiation kill thing?
When it decelerates? Or was that a different FTL mechanism that caused that?
Re: Warp is not a linear scale
I thought Warp10 was transwarp or is that when you turn it up to 11 ?
Wow MS and Apple really are chummy these days
Watch out for monopolistic activities taking place near you soon
If they have non-UK servers though...
Then they're exempt from having to store data, surely (under UK law, at least).
The handlers of any data from UK until the point it exits the UK would be caught of course but that wouldn't be Twaddler's problem, presumably?
Stick your server in Eire or somewhere like everyone else.
Alibaba were going to be saying something that implied it was Android when it was really only mostly Android and not running an official version which would be passing off as Android when it wasn't really?
Who knows, there doesn't really seem to be enough information to say, not that it'll stop some demographics having a go ;o)
Errrr Dragon Dictate, Naturally Speaking, etc?
Like Geoff above, this was one of the first things that came to mind.
At least it'll be easy to invalidate, I guess, let apple waste the money ramming it through USPTO
Cue the ranters
A prize for the first one to post that Lewis Page is a crazy denialist.
The prize? Your own sense of smug self-satisfaction.
You do know that Lewis personally pays all these scientists to 'discover' this stuff in his endless quest against Warmists, right?
From the sky...
Right, what's it going to do, shout 'Hey! Up here!" in Farsi to get targets to look up ?
People do look broadly the same with a scarf/balaclava wrapped round their head, too.
Re: Almost right
Mind you 1,000 less jobs in the public sector is also £35M less tax burden on the Council/State with public sector wages being a tax revenue burden rather than a tax revenue source.
Someone somewhere does know, though, that they're giving the bullet to a lot of people in an area that's not blessed with shitloads of technical jobs, all the same, while painting it as positive to people who don't know how this stuff works under the PR veneer :o/
It's think it's very refreshing
To know that somewhere in the UK there's someone thinking as far ahead as sixty years in their budget. Most of the time you're lucky to get sixty seconds. Coincidentally does their IT planning bod have a name like 'Nostradamus' ?
Not that I'm the type to say told-you-so
Which I totally am...
But perhaps my prediction from earlier in the year that apple's nose-spite-face
hatred litigation with, competitors will bite it in the arse is on schedule.
So. Now. If this plays out as it looks like it could, will apple end up having to buy Sharp (or fund Hon Hai's acquisition) because they're too proud to go cap-in-hand back to Samsung who seem to be the only
innovator company who can provide the technology, quality and quantity, assuming they're tooled (and maybe licensed if they didn't invent it) to make sensor-in-pixel panels.
Samsung must have enough memory patents
That a portion of that money spent elsewhere still comes back to them, anyway, through licensing
Climate science is 'accepted science' now?
If it were the discipline of chemistry it would still be trying to transmute lead into gold, it's got a long way to go to be 'accepted' in the same sense as modern day accepted sciences like physics-ology, chemistry-ology, etc. Climatology is still in its infancy.
As a 'science' a lot of its raison d'etre is to find the flaws within itself, not promulgate itself as the ultimate truth or find interpretations of results to support political agendas.
