...no profit sharing with your retailers
Don't forget the shareholders, either
Re: 1.3 billion?????
I'll do it for 7.5 million, conditional on a copy of the requirements first.
No will to be Good or Creative
Both of which are ample qualifications to retrain as a corporate lawyer ;o)
In other words
It's worth up to an additional $1800/hr to Apple to make life difficult for the $1100/hr guy they don't like.
Which in of itself both justifies the guy's $1100/hr rate and his being there.
So, is what's really being said here
That Android is more desirable than Win8 for people on those kinds of machines but the Manufacturers still can't afford to piss of the Hand of Redmond just yet so they're keeping Win8 on it cos of the subsidies or something?
Re: Nice thought, logical ideology, BUT...
Or even limit the damages you can claim to a multiple of the amount of product revenue you have made in which the patent is employed.
Oh, you don't make anything? That's unfortunate...
Re: Nice thought, logical ideology, BUT...
I'd have thought being liable for the sum you're seeking from the defendant (to be paid to the defendant plus costs) if your troll case goes against you would be a simple, effective remedy for many cases.
Of course, having to declare the sum you're seeking in your filing would then be mandatory if it isn't already.
Actually, to be fair...
I resent people who are stupid enough not to question shit like this in the first place.
They deserve SnatchChat
Re: Oh honestly...
You can guarantee SnatchChat won't be telling anyone about this but I have have withdrawn my buyout offer of 45p.
They'll need to find a new buyer now. That $3BN is looking like a huge lost opportunity now, I bet, along with my 45p.
That's his job cos Apple were working-broken within the law, getting them to work within the law by definition means he'll be making life difficult. It's corporate rehab.
There's more money in price-fixing.
Unless you get caught.
Apple really are like a small over-privileged child with rich parents and an over active hubris gland.
I hope they die on their arse. Well, we're allowed to dream.
Trolls outsourcing trollery to trolls
Quality. Structured trolling.

Does it fly and have two spikes and a drill bit ?
Re: Perspective from Target Shooting
Yep, I suspect VP8 was testing the defences and calling out the behaviour of the other 'interested parties'.
Now their hands have been shown Google should hopefully do a mopping up with VP9 by comparison. Everyone forgets that Google usually plays a much longer game than other co's so a strange move now may well be a litmus test for a larger move in the future which has 'learned' from today.
Re: 4x is coming this year to a screen you can afford
13" at 4k resolution?
I can't think of many more pointless things. A 32" monitor on your desk instead of 2 or three 1080p ones, though, yes, full steam ahead please!
How inept/lazy/both are they?
Like it's something on the level of integrating quantum gravity into the system to just remember the last time an IP made a request and then deny it again within a certain timeframe.... AS YOU CREATE THE INITIAL CODE.
It's a fifteen minute job. I wonder if they even hashed & salted passwords if they're this hopeless.
Re: That turned down $3bn ...
Yep. Worth about 45p now.
In fact I'll offer them 30p cash right now. Take it or leave it, one time offer.
Re: New Inquiry.
And Elvis, Hendrix and Jim Morrison.
The fact that Madeline McCann may have also worked for MI5/6 and was just undercover as a small child should not be overlooked and perhaps an investigation into abduction by terrorists and/or state actors should not be ruled out.
Especially cos there's no evidence for any of the above, either, which makes it extra double-plus shifty, of course.
Re: Self driving Audi?
Indicators will still be an option, too
+1 for right-horn-handbrake :oD
Re: Rockstar claims to be independent from Apple and Microsoft
(2) Which Rockstar seem more than happy to prove themselves. Nice little business you have here, shame if someone was to bust it up.
Re: I am jacks complete lack of surprise
I stopped the Sun exploding last week.
That's all I can say though, everything else is classified.
Only the Anonymous ones
Re: "colorably different"?
I think Samsung should get the word disbefudgingly into their copy and then claim it's whatever they want to mean based upon context.
e.g. The new iphone 5sg+ (when it comes out after the 5sg) will be disbefudgingly similar to Samsung's proprietary [insert thingy here] and therefore we should be allowed to get stabby with Tim Cook
Of course, what's allowed for a US country under the country's legal protectorate ain't necessarily gonna wash for Johnny Foreigner
Re: You're banning it wrong
No less tired than apple trumping the same old shit out over and over.
corner's round enough cap fits...
I notice it was
Anonymous Coward Apple Cultist posting again
Thwarted bomb attacks
They've also prevented at least four alien invasions, three asteroid strikes two Bond ultra villains (and a partridge in a pear tree, cos, well, it's festive time).
Like the bomb attacks, though, they couldn't provide proof cos it's, you know, all classified an' stuff, innit.
But it's true. Honest it is.
Re: They would say that
Oh I dunno. They could always fess up and shut the business the same afternoon
The GC could be modded to have wording such as 'Any clauses deemed not to apply to any sovereignty by such sovereignty shall automatically not be enforceable against that sovereignty's people anywhere in the world against any other sovereign state.'
Kinda like 'If the USA doesn't think that bit applies then it does't apply for all Americans wherever they are and whatever they're doing'
So. We can all torture Americans without redress from the USA (other than bombs, as usual), because they think they can torture others.
Yeah but it's a Mac
So unless you can find really expensive super trendy tape no-one's going to do THAT to their prized look at me gadget. Plus you have to then answer people saying 'what's that stuck on your 'puter?
'Oh, errr, people can spy on you using your Macbook camera'
I'd be amazed if they WEREN'T making one
OCD-dodgy-swivel-eyed-bastards that they are.
Like who the hell seriously sits down and design a land mine that pops out of the ground to waist height and then goes off... This is the fucktard mentality of these people.
Of COURSE they are working on it. It gives them hard-ons.
Re: Am I reading this corectly?
I'll take Deckard's original over Solo's replica any day.
Maybe one won't have the click of death
I thank you.
Nothing to hide, nothing to fear
Presumably the information doesn't support the political climate agenda.
And people marvel at how there can be 'climate sceptics'
Do you think, possibly...
That no-one gives a flying feck about Apple and their expensive tat any more as it's becoming increasingly retro compared to everything else
Re: Commentards are xBots?
Agreed. The article does read like a clutching-at-straws last grenade to diss SONY and try making PS4 look crappy.
I'm surprised it can't do MP3/CD and maybe one or two of the other things which generally get taken for granted these days but everyone knew from the get-go that previous PS games wouldn't work and that it does the sharesie recording thing all the time (it's a feature, geddit?), it's not really a surprise that the controllers don't either and it's not as if it doesn't comes with one in the box - you'll have to buy a second one if you want but big deal.
When I think about how I use my existing PS3 all of these things are complete non-issues. My XBMC Raspberry Pi does everything else _better_ than everything else and is a button-press away on a remote control.
As for pointing out that it won't have analogue out for TVs, seriously, WTF? You may as well complain it doesn't have a UHF out socket and black-and-white contrast mode so you can watch shit on a fucked old Bush valve TV in your gran's attic.
Bit of a whiny non-article. I await the XBOX version for 'balance'. That should be a giggle.
Don't the new controllers have coloured lights on the back so they behave as player-identifying Move thingies? That's one incompatibility right there but agreed, it'd not be a huge thing to support the PS3 controllers, you'd think.
Perhaps margins are so tight they are relying on the second controller purchase most folks will likely make to help make up.
They make more than cameras, y'know...
You do know, right?
Typed on my VAIO which, to be fair, is an epic machine and was bought for the spec not the SONY label.
Re: 'Perhaps the NSA simply just doesn't trust its friends in Europe. '
Not as little as its 'friends in Europe' trusts them.
Yup. Undervalued my backside.
But I get what he's trying to do...
Extract the cash while it's there, then the corp value can tank as much as it likes.
Re: We are considering cancelling cable
Re: You can bet
Which is exactly why making their own content and cutting those assclowns out of the loop altogether is an excellent way forward.
Re: More efficient than the BBC then
Use a tablet or laptop. Bin your TV.
Surely PixelSense is prior art from 2001
I'd have thought it would in MS's interest to get it invalidated as they'll be liking MT functionality on Surface?
Just stick your phone on vibrate and put it under your pillow.
If you're wise enough to have a recent-ish Android phone then just turn Block Mode on for e.g. 23:00 - 06:00 and no errant plonkers will disturb you with their notifications between those hours.
Cancel the alarm simply by placing the palm of your hand on the screen (with gestures enabled in settings)
Friday pint for all.
Re: "voluntary solutions"?
Precisely. I don't go to the cinema because of that 'ripped off' feeling as you walk out 2 hours later.
Ahh, MPAA, how Kettlesome is thy Pot
If "The MPAA is complaining that Google leads people to infringing links"
Then why are they doing their apparent damnedest to encourage people to go search for them in the first place.
La-La-La fingers in the ears indeed.

in bloody America, was there actually anything Italian in it ?
I concur with your vexed stance.
I know what's causing it
