It'd be Darwinian for FB to seal itself of from
the internet competitors and suffocate to death.
One remains ever hopeful.
I can't imagine any right-minded person buying games online-only with the keys to whether or not they're allow to have continued access to said purchased game in someone else's hands. (Add Ultraviolet to that sentiment, also)
People do still pop round to see friends to play multiplayer on games that only one of them has got, too, right?
"...older versions of IE continue to be a real challenge for developers "
They could have just provided the raw un-spin version of that sentence:
"We're sorry so for ever making that hideous deformed shit, can we pay you for all your time we wasted while we cocked about like numpties with well-known standards?"
Re: Less social than worms
I've come to believe that the current generation (my kids, for example) are probably growing up with social media defining their scope of interaction with other humans which has the unfortunate effect of then bringing itself across to the IRL side of things, causing them, as a matter of course, to form what I call 'disposable relationships', instead of what we'd call proper ones, lacking meaningful discourse, engagement and ultimately loyalty.
Then again, they are also teenagers, i suppose...
We have also a family member who sends all their seasonal cardage via Moonpig. Cheers for that. I'd much rather an email/SMS instead if you're going to do that.
Please be arsed to pick up a biro and write in the damned thing and post it.

And leccy will be ten quid per kWh because of them.
Re: I am very dissapointed.....
Umm.. trying hard here... 'Trumped Up' statistics?
Re: Point of fact
Howver, amending your output to broadly align with government policy/agenda/rhetoric is exactly what a government agency does.
All those TLDR ACC types who don't see the irony in well-remnerated folk flying to a hot country to be chauffered to their luxury hotel in an air-con'd V8 SUV/Limo to crack open the bottle of complimentary chilled montrachet awaiting them in their suite.
Global Warming Climate Change (presumably the Anthro-variety as the natural kind is bleeding obvious to all but the most special-needs)
Not that you shouldn't crap on your own doorstep, you'd think that was obvious, too. Pollution reduction is a worthy thing in its own right and patently of benefit to all, politicising it with ACC guff is just disingenuous, verging on fraudulent.
Mind you, anyone know how much 'consultants' get paid to advise on ACC in Whitehall? Might be worth a career change.
Downvote away, always good to get a measure of how many entrenched beliefs you've challenged of a day.
Perhaps this could be applied to NRA members too?
Re: Let's hope they price the "goods" appropriately.
A copy of one Britney Spears tune 'shared' is roughly equal to that.
Let's hope they use Antigua's metrics instead of the MAFIAA's when calculating, which if they're clever will be very small :o)
WTF would anyone downvote that?
Likelihood of a failed connection manifesting its failed-ness via a software upgrade is slim, and would likely have shown up in other software versions, being a physical defect. Not totally impossible I spose, all the same if the software maybe ran something hotter nearby.
That really is a massive fail
It's not like they don't know the damned hardware or anything.
Antennagate was a moronic design flaw but this is mind-bending in its why-the-fuck-did-they-not-test-it-properly-ness. Or even the why-change-shit-which-aint-busted-ness.
(Any chance of a boggled-mind icon?)
Resisting without violence?
Classic. Passive resistance is an offense in the Good ol' US of A ? (Or just that state?).
Not submitting obediently and cooperatively.
Re: Not the revolution you were looking for
At least 'for', 'loop', 'while', etc don't force most people to learn a new alphabet as well as remember the syntax...
Someone has too much time on their hands, or needs a girlfriend.
They had to put something in to mollify the IPCC arch-diocese or be labelled crackpots/heretics.
Bring forth the ducking stool
Warmologists with torches & pitchforks, non-IPCC-approved science turned me into a newt, etc, etc
This _is_ a Transparency Report Shop, isn't it?
Oh YES, Sir, absolutely, Sir
Good, I'll have a transparency report for Skype, please
It might be a bit runny, Sir...
The runnier the better!
Ohhhhh. The cat's eaten it.
Re: "so the models are evidently wrong"
Which would be fine if the anti-common-sense Inquisition didn't spout these models as gospel and denounce all else as heresy.
But they do. Which is not science, it's politics.
Super! Maintenant je ne dois pas penser pour une autre microsecond si on dit 'du' ou 'de'!
Merci, mon professeur!
"After expressions of quantity, the partitive is usually reduced to DE which is invariable:"
Can I at once urge all our French cousins to upload *shitloads* of pics to facebook. Thousands, please.
In other news, short Failbook stock now
Biere pour tout, parce-que je n'ai plus du vin :o(
Perhaps if MS had offered to underwrite purchase of all unsold units...
So the manufs could build the stuff in confidence of no stock liability.
Oh but even MS knew that would be a stupid plan.
So why'd these employees wanna leave
If apple are so godlike to work for.
Oh, apple weren't even in the top 100 best co's to work for, you say?
(P.S. need a worm-on-a-hook icon for 'bait')
Doesn't have the same number of devs as MS?
Bloody hell, they do a damned good job, then, or their devs are way better, or something.
Says more about MS, possibly that with x times the devs of Google they still can't get their shit right after 30 years.
Just volcanoes and people?
I'm sure volcanism (vulcanism, surely?) covers a bit more than volcanoes, maybe not, but it sounds like the sea is being completely ignored?
There is quite a bit of the stuff, after all.
If you're trying to show that ACC is real vs normal natural CC which the human race hasn't been round long enough to actually measure firsthand then just using volcanoes and people stuff (which presumably is the anthro data) sounds like fitting the data to the desired outcome to the lay-person.
If I wanted to show Jimmy Savile as a nice chap I'd produce a graph of time vs charitable funds raised. If not then a chart of time vs alleged victims and so forth. Whichever chart I produced would be dependent upon the revenue I thought it would produce.
So. Just apple then because they thought they had a better idea than fitting NFC. Which was to not fit NFC.
Meanwhile Rest of World moves on. Without them.
I had to go to hospital and have intensive psychological therapy due to my reliance on the media to tell me how to think and react to the world around me as I am utterly incapable of forming an independent thought for myself.
The very kind private doctor took one look at me and warned me I would need a prolonged course of very expensive treatment though he did refer me to his brother who happens to run a no-win-no-fee company who will be able to sue the BBC on my behalf for the cost of it.

Re: Journal of Mass Media Ethics
Well, more of a pamphlet .. ;o)
Do you have any light reading..?
Mother fined £12k for not locking bathroom door causing little Jimmy to cop an eyeful when he accidentally walked in for a pee.
Playboy + Hardcore ?
Re: What irks me about their argument
I suspect it's less about the swivel-eyed foamings of the NRA or public outrage every time these horrendous scenarios get repeated and more about how much money flows from arms companies to government.
That (imho) is what fuels the inaction of government to legislate.
Re: What irks me about their argument
Only cos they're not allowed to drive tanks into Gaza at that age...
What a bunch of fatuous assclowns
Anyway, I've been playing too much Mario. Off to jump on some heads now while I look for gold coins on the High Street.
simply wants to "monetize"
I'd humbly submit that patent suits brought with the purpose of harming a competitor's ability to compete in the same market as you would also be trolling of a particularly disingenuous form.
Yes apple, I'm looking at you.
And before the appleists (there's less of them these days, I understand, from recent news) shout 'Samsung' or whatever, don't forget Samsung et al launched COUNTER suits and RESPONDED to apple's attacks...
Try Canon for real service.
Faulty camera, model discontinued.
Replaced for free with current version about 3 models higher. Wasn't even an SLR, or a 'valuable customer' model like a 7D or 1D.
Did Italy not teach them anything?
Maybe not idiots. Perhaps Con-Artists / Chancers.
That is all.
I wouldn't trust either of them
But I'd go for drinks with KD...
Re: Pull the other one, DOJ
Plus a vote for torches & pitchforks icon too!
A Madame Guillotine icon for Bastille day :oD
Forecasting is notoriously difficult
What? The IPCC's crystal ball of doom might actually not be right?
Golly. Yet they tout themselves as the ultimate gospel of apocalypse (unless you give generously, dear lobbing targets)
