more opportunities to build amazing products
Any word on when they're going to build one?
The one that got away
proper parliamentary scrutiny
In other words, is the BPI kickback large enough
Re: Council in cahoots?
Do you think she might have a den at home with oak-panelled walls, a fluffy cat and a map of the world with blinking lights on it?
** Jealous! **
Distress & Harm
Right. That meal looks like toy food you give a 5 year old to play at cooking with on their Little Tykes play kitchen.
Distress & Harm caused to the councillor's wallet which was getting a kickback for awarding that catering contract to the cookery clowns that would net him/her the most moolah, most likely.
Re: Any lawyers present?
It'll be the council's property so presumably they can say that, yep.
Re: Alternate headline?
Edited. I obviously still have issues with an old headmaster ;o)
I for one...
Hope she damn well keeps it up
Food-fail school retaliates with spiteful ban against nine year old
In fact I think I'll share it just like that.
'The value of your investment may go down as well as up'
Because to admit you're shit would affect the share price EVEN MORE
You also need
Don't pay people if they're striking, tax unions higher.
That should sort most of that aspect out ;o)
Oh and importantly... remove all obvious safety labels like 'caution: sharp!' on new kitchen knives, 'May contain nuts' on bags of nuts. Let's eliminate people too stupid to work that shit out for themselves.
See Apple DOES listen to its customers
But only when over 85% of the installed base request a feature...
Sir Ranulph Fiennes
Could possibly give that Janke fellow a spot of training on avoiding getting into so much shit!
Re: That's part of
Is that the reorganisation where China appears at the top of every list as a 'favourite' ?
Re: We could have had this years ago
Actually, thinking about it, perhaps it's like an extension of Godwin's law....
Over time any given system of government will turn into a cynical self-serving police state spouting Nazi-esque proaganda as to why they have to do the things they need to do.
Re: We could have had this years ago
Maybe we just lost WW2 **really slowly** then
I suppose you could...
Send some kind of FOI request to the company for all the info they have on you giving only a postal address for response.
100k of stamps has to cost quite a bit.
Just switch to an alternate app repository
Oh. Wrong operating system. Sorry.
Amazing how fast Apple will bend over rather than stand fast when it suits them.
The Starbucks loyalty card even pops up on the lock screen whenever one is walking past a Starbucks.
Nice. Of course you can turn location tracking off in preferences, right? I mean you know when you're in a Starbucks, you don't need your phone to tell you, do you?
Mind you these are apple users we're talking about I suppose, they don't seem to believe anything unless Cupertino tells them it's so. Like location tracking being a 'real innovation' .. right.. no-one ever heard of a fucking TomTom? Oh maybe not, didn't apple just 'invent' TomTom maps, too, this week?
Gimp icon. Cos, well.
Re: Easy to reject a call - big deal
The Mr Number app on Android rejects all 'unknown caller' calls automatically for me... works a treat.
Can be set all sorts of ways.
Yet my wife's Galaxy2 had ICS made available to it by Vodafone. It's 18 months old.
Re: Only us geeks care about OS versions
Don't most iThing owners use IThingTunes ?
Doesn't that push/enforce updates on the devices as and when?
I think that means apple upgrades the devices rather than 'most users'. For Android it's the carrier's decision, oftentimes, to deploy an update as they have to rebrand it, e.g. Vodafone needs lots of Red bootscreen crap and voda-specific apps, etc. In the event an update comes available it's still the user's choice to apply it, also.
Re: Simple security
Absolutely. Your average webserver only needs :80 and :22 visible to the world anyway and MySQL should be bound to 127.0.0.1. If you need a separate DB server then put them on the same private network and only expose the webserver to the world.
That marketing.apple.com re-supply that pie chart this time next year so we can see how many devices they 'obsoleted' from ios6.
Apparently all ipad1's for a start, and I'm willing to bet only the 4s phone onwards gets #6 which is maybe why they released that incremental 'meh' version of the 4, to obsolete the rest this year with a new ios to hopefully force the shiny pavlovian massive to get the V5 phone so they could spout hyperbole.
Re: Are Apple shooting themselves in the foot?
Yeah shame about Nokia though I spose it's largely of their own doing by ploughing the wrong furrow
Still have a 6230 upstairs somewhere which'd I'd expect to work perfectly if I charged it. Oh, and it can 'see' phone numbers in SMS messages, too.
Buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters...
We thank you, Douglas Adams.
Re: Are Apple shooting themselves in the foot?
I know at least six people personally who are essentially saying 'Fuck Apple, they're like bloody crybabies, I so don't want anything to do with them any more' and going SGS3/OneX for their next phone.
Probably doesn't help that I keep calling their phones CryPhones, either ;o)
Plus others (mostly dev types to be fair) who're considering Transformer Primes for potential laptop replacements (including me) without even giving a thought to an apple tablet.
Re: The [Apple/Samsung] is better than the [Samsung/Apple] you own now
The note was really nice, too big for a phone though, imho.
The people I know who've tried an SGS3 are gobsmacked by it, apparently it's not just 'rather quick' but 'instant' response as far as UI response goes and that was from an IT guy who knows what 'latency' is ;o)
Mind you, quad-core 1.6GHz - you'd bloody well hope it had a 'prompt' interface response!
Might get one next week as I'm due an upgrade from VodafOne2 though I may hold on till the blue ones are shipping, if I can, don't really want white.
We've known about the 10M preorders for a month or more, too!
Re: Stupid Apple
@Charlie - Damned right.
The US phone isn't the same as the UK phone, different CPU for a start isn't it? So crapple are basing a US ban on a different device to what would be entering the US, surely?
Complete and utter Database 101 fail
Crybaby Apple cries like a baby
Refuses to innovate, insists patent lawyering is valid business model for foreseeable future until A. N. Other Corp invents something new they can use in their other-peoples'-tech mashup products.
Mind you, we don't really need to read any reviews any more do we? If crapple seeks a ban on something then it's almost certainly worth having over one of their products.
Re: lost sale?
Yep, it's the
Apple Streisand Effect
Didn't Samsung recently thank Apple for the free publicity in Oz?
Prior art va any Apple tv patent
The Sharp Aquos on my living room wall. I humbly invite Tim Crook to come and check its corners for roundness and its bezel for blackness. and it screen for screeniness.
My kids used to make noises like Apple do now. When they were about 6 months old and dropped their Pooh/Tigger/Piglet beany toy.
Mind you my kids grew up over the last ten-fifteen years, Apple didn't.
They should simply change it
To cover cookies that can track your behaviour outside of the website it was set within, or allow cookies from a TLD to be excused while browsing that TLD.
Surely that would just let normal everyday shortlived session cookies do their thing while 'dealing with' cookies that track your wider behaviour from stuff like FB & Google
Re: Might one enquire...
Still ongoing, presumably.
Apple are busy finding one of their lawyers who can be do something other than patent litigation most likely.
In the meantime...
Apple sues the soon-to-be-ex employees for trademark abuse...
Whilst cackling maniacally.
Get Zuckerberg to fund it
I'm sure it's worth it to Zuck the Suck just to have robo-controlled satellite-style stereographic space pics to
sell make available on his shiny new Instagram. So long as it takes square pictures, of course, and you like your speace pics with a 1970's look.
Mind you Failbook has just plumbed a new record low in price so perhaps he's tightening his belt...
I'd rather see
Trollco's suckered in with a whiff of easy cash then thrashed soundly and very expensively in the courts to the point where they all take up a different job altogether and just fuck off. They don't produce anything, they're just a financial burden on the economy.
