Re: Is it just me
I remember lasers bein gdubbed 'a solution looking for a problem' - for a period of time it seemed you could apply a frikkin' laser to almost anything.
Downstairs where I'm currently working they have a big frikkin' laser behind a door marked 'Femto-second laboratory'. I think that's where they bottle really really small amounts of time for busy people who want to get things done very quickly... or something.
Re: Shouldn't have called it the "God" particle
In an election year, if SSC *had* found it they'd have called it the GOP particle...
Change of direction
It's all about military industrial for now. They're still world leaders in varieties of methods of spying on people and killing them.
And really, how far would Texas have got without reading any LHC papers to narrow their search, anyway?
I wouldn't mind doing a little monitoring of my own....

Re: Good Ol' Apple
But don't you dare say anything uncomplimentary about us in return. We'll fuck you up.

Not that you'd think it, based on how much we're raped for car insurance by fat opera singers and their ilk.

Once more, Fapple saved a rival company mucho advertising dollah for the coverage this gadget's received
Google should write them a thank you note like Samsung did.
Re: Copyright Infringement Capital Crime
Yep cos the politicians take kickbacks and are now owned by the megacorps unless they want a sudden change of lifestyle.
Even today with open political corruption as good as actually being a reality TV show we still make the mistake of thinking politicians work for us and not themselves.
A politician's only employer is the one with the biggest payout.
We are Apple
No. You are obvious and invalid. Goodbye.
OK, Labour, fair point
But it's still a shitload more preferable to what we're left with after your banking policies.
Re: Does that mean...
You're not referring to Luch Koh and her massive alleged hoard of Fapple gadgetry, surely?
I think the new plan is...
... based from news I read elsewhere, the plan might be to sue Google over patents under (presumably) Microsoft's background puppeteering instructions.
Re: Ye gods.
Actually, if the judge can be shown to own an pihone, ipad and maybe a mac thing of some sort could that be used to show predujice/bias?

Re: Nicely left out the progress being made
It's the Anthropogenic aspect people are questioning, I don't think anyone questions some natural cycle may be taking place.
Re: Illegal or not... The raid had the "desired" effect...
I'm not so sure that the NZ side didn't do a little 'fuck america' creative sabotage...
It's easy to envision the FBI/whomever charging in shooting their sixguns in the air but for the NZ side to screw up as well on something basic like a warrant?
Do NZ have black helicopters?

Yeah the gleeful sycophantic rubbing of hands whenever the 'Special Relationship' is mentioned.

Nice work if you can get it - be a Union boss
The Sun estimates that Len McCluskey gets £149,312 a year, made up of a salary of £97,677 plus £51,635 in benefits.
Yeah it's the SUN, but that doesn't mean they're far off the mark.
And add some interest back on, hopefully
As presumably M$ haven't paid up yet due to its 'ongoing' nature?

I hope they don't forget to descend the final ~7 metres or they'll do a 'nukular pillinger'!
They need to want to learn first.
Disagree with US policy? Own an iThing or a Ford car (etc, etc)? You helped fund them.
(Yes, yes to the pedants who're doubtless warming their trollflames, your Taiwanese PC might contain an intel chip, don't bother going there. Your iThing or Ford probably has Korean memory, too, and so on.)
"the customer's IP address may go on a register"
Errr.. DHCP ?
Nightly router reboots, etc.
Not. It gets MAC ones.
Maybe PC makers will start saying they don't get MAC viruses or something - marketing departments really don't think further than the next line of copy, do they. I guess that's why they're marketing depts though.
So, you open a web page hosted in the UK and that web page is now published in your country?
So, by extension...
You order a magazine from the UK which isn't printed in your country and as soon as it arrives through your letterbox it's published in your country.
Come 'n 'ave a go if you think y'er 'ard enuff
Did it read like that to anyone else?
They're gonna be offline by the weekend methinks.

Re: Canon/Nikon should step in
Looks like I got me an antifan.
Canon/Nikon should step in
And buy the lot, assuming they still can at this point, giving Apple a much harder target to browbeat.
"which claimed attorney-client privilege"
Which surely would also have been the time to decide whether or not that was a valid argument.
If you don't have to fork over stuff then don't.
Can someone give Texas their dolly back, it seems to have fallen out of the pram.

Plus who the hell would Hollywood pay their kickbacks to if no US senators had any influence over intertube policy?
So... hang on...
If say overnight you kittens decide to play pretend-its-a-mouse with your BD of Prometheus you're fine, because you can still watch the STANDARD DEFINITION version online?
WTF is that. If you buy a BD you want a BD quality download, too. I'm sure most people will think of it more as a cloud movie backup thing than a library. After all, they HAVE the disc, right? I get that maybe sometime in a distant Utopian future Big Media will allow online purchases of UV-only media (when they finally move their biz model into the 3rd millennium), sure, but that would make it even MORE important to have top-quality rips available, yes?
Sounds like a load of bollocks to me compared to other options of getting 'standard definition' movies.
Didn't another bank stuff up just the other day?
Quel coincidence... or is it
Re: Sat here waiting for my S3 to explode or do something
What an Appleist
Does Xenophobia extend to gadget preference these days? Like I give a toss about what you think anyway.
AC ... AssClown.
Re: Apple ploy, iPad proximity destruct code
I wonder, if you drop the phone on is bottom edge, if it beknackers the mic and could cause this...
Phone on seat or otherwise not in car holder, sudden braking... boof.
Not about to test on mine though you others feel free and let us know!
Sat here waiting for my S3 to explode or do something
Slow day, need some excitement. Bloody thing's just working properly, no smoke, flames or kabooms.
Most disappointing. Well, from the excitement point of view, excellent news from the not-having-to-get-the-bloody-thing-fixed point of view.
Re: Blaze or not
Those marks are almost certainly from sustained high temperature rather than an EXPLOSION!!!! as the case looks melted and the markings aren't as linear as you'd expect from a sudden blast of some sort, looks like soot from smoke not debris/shrapnel from a kaboom moment. Look a lot like the phone was vertical when it happened too as the smoke drifted upwards.
When a semiconductor goes boom it really looks like a tiny (or not so, depending on the component) explosion took place with straight lines radiating out from the centre.
My 2-penn'th, anyway. Been a while siince I fixed any blowedy-uppy gear.
Re: Nice try Apple.
Counters the Apple fanboi, in all probability ;o)
Re: The case of the flaming case
The 'Bad Apples', surely!
Assuming it was charging at the time
That would maybe be more of a charger fault for not being current-limited.
Of course it depends what it was actually plugged into at the time, going on the assumption it was, as it could be anything from the official Sammy charger to some hokey non-standard Chinese cheapo USB hub with its own crappy PSU delivering as much current as requested.
You really think we don't know Foxconn has >1 customer???
That's a huge fail.
On a scale of zero to Linked-in password storage that's right up there.
Utter lunatic assclowns.
You know what this is, right?
Yep. Innovation (as in the real kind)
