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
Re: Sadly though
They have their own theme tune, though...
Dumb, dumb-dumb dumb DUUMMMMMB
Re: How many americans
Popcorn icon still needed!
He's right, it is the best Apple phone thing everrrrrr
Just not the best phone thing everrrrrr
Re: Another surprise feature
You must work in marketing or something...
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.
Fine in the UK
And even broken it'd still be better value than XBOX Live Gold which I discontinued.
Maybe they have a dicky server in a particular region or something.
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)
Re: Very strange
It probably wasn't the Swedes that faked it, the USA probably handed them the damned thing and said here's your proof to go with the victim we provided earlier.
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.
Re: Use a bot?
Or the fact you arrived at the store from a pricebot should indicate you're not an easy sell and warrant a lower price automagically :o)
Re: That is why we use a clean browser for purchases
Except you'll have logged into Google Wallet or whatever to pay thus accessing a bunch of historical data you don't have the ability to delete...
I'd have expected £15 at least based. Not that I need one.
Re: Couple daft things about the "organic" label.
Sell it as 'Completely Natural' then - cook up your own thing.
'Completely Natural(tm) Fresh Strawberries'
We grow our strawberries using Organic methods with no pesticides...
Not saying you're organic, just natural and using similar methodology. When supermarkets call Salmon 'Loch Kiel Salmon' and there is no such Loch in existence, as 'Loch Kiel Salmon' is a brand name, not a geographic description of origin, I'm fairly sure you can use such grey marketing to be honest instead and get round paying the tithe while getting your message across
Actually organic stuff does have an advantage
If often tastes better than the vat-grown muto-crap that comes out of most supermarkets.
At least, if the fruit & herbs that come out of our garden is anything to go on...
Mind you if you're on a health-kick you probably don't care about what your food tastes like as you're busy avoiding stuff like butter, cream and bacon sarnies.
Keep a generation gap
Try wearing a cap - The Specials AKA
Not forgetting that the chav generation cycle is about 14 years, too.
Re: BitTorrent = Honeytrap
Unless you set uploads to 0 bytes/sec of course.
What it presumably shows
Is that apple know Samsung (in this case) have grounds to sue them and are expecting it. Presumably for not stumping up IP cash. Again.
Cos everyone can tell that someone with an IM name like 'Steve' is Jewish. What a cocksmoker.
If he'd maybe been called Isaac_Goldstein1845 then yeah...
I wish. It's more like bloody guesswork in the UK unless you're lucky enough to have a local practice with a properly good old-school style Doctor.
All you get is hmmm.. let's try you on this and come back in a fortnight and we'll see how you're doing.
You'd be better off with a 1d20 and a potion of healing from eBay
Yes. Because that is pretty much what 'Live' means.
However if you're able to download a whole live event from beginning to end, check it then re-transmit it in realtime with the actual event in this spacetime then Google would dearly love to talk with you.
Re: Film Studios
Only if there's money in doing so
Re: "Is it just me..."
Perhaps it's because the ithing5 will look like an S3 that they're laying the groundwork to try banning the S3.
Interesting that they want to 'deal' with Google, though. Is that because they want to go to court saying 'Awww but we TRIED to talk to Google but they wouldn't accept our offer of 'fuck all' for the patents'. Or, they can see they'll take a massive kicking in court cos someone finally has them bang to rights for blatant and willful abuse of Moto's IP.
Re: iPhone 5 will be great
So presumably they know it will be poop which is why they are suing
Re: Apple might have handed Xmas to Samsung early
Maybe they could just redefine 'Christmas'
Priest: Our saviour Steve, who died for our sins, and his Living Disciple Tim who both did verily beget all things inventionable upon the face of the World... Let him who denieth the innovation be put to the Holy Sword of Apple and not be suffered to pursue business further. So let it be written, so let it be done.
And so forth
Apple might have handed Xmas to Samsung early
If Sammy get going now with a 'Buy one before it's banned' campaign then apple might just find that they're not selling ithings because everyone bought an S3 early. Think about how many banned singles used to get to #1 in the charts.
After all, apple's noisesome tactics are usually a great indicator of what you should consider buying, they've given Sammy so much free marketing already.
"Operation Enduring Freedom"
Otherwise known as 'Freedom From Above'
Now I'm not one to say 'told you so' but...
Well. Actually I am.
Are Sharp the only guys that can do the sensor-in-pixel thing?
That would be funny although apple would make a counterbid for sure and that would be worse if they got hold of Foxconn (which I suspect they already have, in the boardroom).
Would make big sense for Sammy to own their own assembler though, given the range of stuff they produce and the range of stuff Foxconn is tooled to produce.
That was my first thought about Foxconn/Hon Hai's (?) interest in Sharp.
Sharp are another co that failed on yield for retina display panels, though aren't they? I thought (IIRC) only Sammy could get the yield & quality for those, ironically.
Personally I give apple until the end of the Xmas season 2013 before they embark on the downward slope unless they actually invent something of their own (meaning technology not different combinations of other peoples' technology). We'll see, anyway.
Did no one yet mention...
That perhaps, just perhaps, some lawyer looked at the Motorola patents and told Tim Crook
"My Liege, my Overlord and Glorious Master, we can't bullshit or countersue our way out of this one, they have us bang to rights for blatantly not paying for their patents in everything we make and they can prove we've known about this for years and even have recordings of the laughter. We must do a deal"
British government willing to see sense
But unfortunately is completely unable to think clearly with Yank Cock stuck so far up its arse.
Special Relationship. 'Special' as in 'Special Sauce'
All the real innovation really is happening in The East isn't it.
While the yanks all try to 'monetise' their IP - e.g. have lost the ability to invent new shit.
I bet training Taiwan/China/India/etc to make all your crap for slave labour prices seems a really clever idea now.
