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?
Best of British to it!
Not that big of a deal
baristas rich, successful, desirable people aren't they?
Marketing never lies, after all.

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.
When their mortages are reliant on grants for saying the world's ending.

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.

We'll wheel out our nans to gum them into submission!
Come & give Granny a nice kiss...
Don't care that.....
While they have the ability to bomb 'freedom' into you on a whim.
Re: If I ruled the world
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???
Foxconn and Apple would seem to richly deserve each other.
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)
Re: Most excellent!
Tell us all you're joshing, surely?
Every fanboi that checks through that list will come across one of the items and think...
Yeah that's awful tat but you know, that one thing is actually kinda cool, I might just order it...
Petty, petty, petty
Presumably he's not supposed to leave the country either. The Embassy is technically Ecuador, is it not, 24 hours a day?
I wonder how long after the phonecall from the USA they came up with this one. Anyway he's fleeing persecution now, and I'm sure UK.gov needs that 200k badly.
No mention of Ice Cream?
I used to build my centre forward up and just have him muller through the opposition in a straight line all the way through to the goalie then slam the ball in for good measure :o)
There was a throw you could do to bounce the ball of the electrifier so it went along the side through any opponents and round the multiplier loop, too. Most effective!
Must have destroyed 4 Kempston Pro joysticks.
Ice Cream, Ice Cream!
They need SONY & Samsung in on that too
Else it's going nowhere.
Obviously not Rooney
He can't read or write, can he?
dragged kicking and screaming
Of course. By the CIA after having his tequila spiked with GHB. OK, maybe just 'unconscious'.
"Strewth, mate, imagine my surprise when I woke in in Guantanamo"
It's a rape case on paper (that's already been chucked out once then reinstated, but that's just the documented part that people can see). The Yanks want him out of sheer embarrassment and spite cos Hell hath no fury like a Government that failed to keep a secret which got out.
Re: They'll be fine...
Oh yeah cos Apple 'innovate', we all forgot that one, if that's what you call rearranging other people's innovations in a different order and charging 30% on it.
They also need
To make the fecking homescreen(s) on the S3 rotate when the phone's held in portrait mode.
You know, like IN A CAR IN A WINDSCREEN MOUNT!
Jeepers you'd think they'd have nailed that one by now. Tried a bunch of other launchers (had one on the Desire HD that did this) but didn't like them or they displayed stuff a bit oddly, and I actually quite like Touchwiz.
Re: Streisand effect
Yep, I think we're deeply in the realm of the Complete Fuckwit Effect
more opportunities to build amazing products
Any word on when they're going to build one?
Secondhand market - boohoo
It's legal. Tough.
As oft-mentioned, you don't see BMW sobbing like a girl because of Autotrader.co.uk
The one that got away
If you have that many friends and family members to hang out with then WTF are you doing posting on a thread about Nvidia Chip Drivers? Go live the dream.
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)
