I suspect the collective noun for 'Sheeple' would be 'Demographic'
I spent most of last year having to deal with WP. Its guts look like it was coded by a 12-yr old.
Multisite backup and restore to another instance? Forget it, had to code my own.
By Xmas this year there will have been around 9 updates to WP (I'm reliably informed by the WP bunnies I previously worked with) - that is a nightmare for any admin of a large installation.
Concrete5 FTW (www.concrete5.org)
Seriously. Never looked at anything else since I discovered that.
iPhone owners must be so proud of Apple's latest and greatest
Not For Crapple devices under any circumstances. Like larger screens.
The Frontline Morale Destroyer aka Warbeast (Death Machine 1995 with Brad Dourif, Rachel Weisz)
M.A.R.K. 13 (Hardware 1990)
Indeed, do not underestimate their gaily-garbed bell-jingling and stick-clacking jaunty ways...
In fact if there'd been an aled-up Morris Troupe (collective noun?) in the pub in Shaun of the Dead the outcome would have been far different.
Does that mean if I watch porn I'm a pornographer? Where's my Aston Martin and tacky Pools winner's mansion then? If I watch BBC news, perhaps I'm George Alagiah or a foreign correspondent.
I'm off to watch Alien to see if I turn out to be Ridley Scott...
Not in 4.4.2 sadly, Google removed something that made it happen
Not to mention that the whole thing sounds like a cyber Ender's Game
Not giving up your PIN Sir? Jail for you, then.
I'll see your 'mobile device' and raise you....
"In a public lavatory"
Drafting a C&D to George Michael as I click Submit...
Maybe they're going to become a CA
As per subject
I'm too busy with my mind's red pen correcting the English in that article.
3/10 poor effort.
IIRC, prior to said holiday (with David Geffen in Italy?) he had exactly the opposite stance
Presumably he is not the subject of a court order that was served on him to not provide such access?
Unless his name's SKY or Mr British Telecom, etc
"Nah, playing Destiny"
Left out the best response:
Destiny for PS4!
That USA is apple's main market?
Perhaps the droid/other market share abroad has grown so large that it's not worth funding the litigation (won't someone think of the lawyers??). Plus 'abroad' doesn't have the USPTO and all 'specialness' that entails... (They ditched all the non-domestic battles they didn't think likely to win without that particular 'specialness', perhaps)
A possible sign of El Reg's "Peak Apple" ? Surely someone didn't just simply sit down and do maths of all the lawyers' bills vs revenue/potential gains, that's would be too, well, sensible and non-thermo-nukuler.
Perhaps start sending them to judges, coppers and politicians
Expect most of them will likely delete them as duplicates...
Unless you've not checked your email/IM/SocialMeeja within the last X hours...
Add 5% to all their car exports cos the Yanks will still want Mercs, Porches, Audis and BMWs.
Fund the program from that and make the Yanks pay for for their own countersurveillance
It's maybe more likely that many people held off buying a tablet until they were higher-powered (as they are now) and that such a demographic of people, being more circumspect and probably thrifty couldn't see the point in spaffing a wedge more cash on an iThing when a droidThing does the same and cheaper, lighter, waterproofier (in the case of stuff like the Z2, at least).
Chances are they already have a droidPhone too (statistically) so logically a tablet would also be a droid so they could have familiar apps. Then they start using the internet on it as a tab is way more handy for webbyness than a phone.
So the stats increase.
In favour of whom, exactly?
There's one that can be trusted more?
I don't have so much of a problem with the data sharing to be honest. There's a certain sense in it like motor insurance/tax/licensing/mot'ing already does.
It's the fucking data collection that needs reigning right in.
That'd Nukuler, surely ;o)
The US offering newly be-rubbled countries 'rebuilding' aid provided, naturally, by US construction corps who go in, milk all the money out of the country and then bugger off leaving them newly be-skinted as well as be-rubbled. Then they have to go to the IMF or World Bank (or whichever it is this month) and beg for money on terms dictated by powerful western nations (to not point fingers any further).
It lumps one into that demographic...
That's cos you can get a NEW PC for $450...
That's quite the stuff-up
There must be some Dark Art to making shit break _that_ comprehensively
Donde esta la cervesa
In Soviet Russia....
Can't believe I read it all, too.. .and understood half of it still...
So they'll be against us...
No change there ;o)
uk.gov just did that...
When the TPIT or whatever it is gets ratified and (especially American) corps can sue (especially non-American) govs for doing things that injure their precious profits.
So, you buy a fourpack of coke in the supermarket which says Four for £4 and because you don't check the POS display when paying and your card gets billed £30 you let it slide?
Right. 'course you would.
They're regulated by the FSA in the UK AFAIK
But calling it a 'feature' sounds like bullshit to avoid paying the bug bounty, I can't see how any court would allow a greater amount than that authorised to be vindicated. Well maybe a Nigerian one...
Great lying of phone on screen
'Hola' makes you appear to be in the US for Netflixesque purposes (or anywhere else you choose for that matter)
Bloody useful on a phone or tablet, has a Chrome plugin for PC, etc
Not that it makes him wrong...
Evidently it's still more financially attractive not to do that, despite their whinging about how they're only able to afford the one Bentley this year...
Proof, in of itself, that they're not skint else you can bet there'd be an epic digital dissemination system in place already if it were worth five dollah.
If Destiny PS4 preorders are running at nearly 1/2 million (maybe just USA alone - http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/) and say half those people (conservative) downloaded beta last weekend but shared one code with a pal then that's 500,000 x 13GB downloads (about 6.5 PB off the top of my head). If a gaming co can handle that - and there was very little outage in EU Beta here - then the MAFIAA have no excuse.
An SSH connection? A VPN?
Or just the common or garden variety of unobscured Torrent traffic. It also implies they're guessing as to what's happening content-wise on your connection, too, though presumably they're not allowed to packet-inspect to see if you're downloading Ubuntu or Transformers (so you can delete it without watching it, natch)
It was Tensie's hand..
So they say...
I hope the Leics plods prepared for a sudden rash of 'false positives', then
Here's the others who voted NO:
I have the Alpha, watched the boys trying it out, didn't even bother myself after what I saw.
I was expecting serious jaw-droppery, at least visually at the very least. Will check out the Beta (have a pass for that when it's out) but freebie game (well, kinda freemium) Warframe kicks its arse and have only spent about £12 on it for well over 200 hours play so far.
If the Beta isn't a serious advance on the Alpha (not expecting it to be) then I may well cancel the pre-order.
Just ban the USA. "period"
