Mind you, just looked at FarceBork's shares and they're pretty fecked, too... $20.72
Is this a cheese shop?
Oh Yes, Sir!
I'd like to buy some Argyle Zynga Blue please....
It's a bit runny, Sir...
Facebook will probably buy them while they're going
runny cheap, then they can keep the money in house.
A rabbit... through the bloody cat-flap, to boot!
Take-downs and patent infringement suits aplenty when someone makes a driver to do this to keep the control freakery firmly in the red.
It's been in Android (or installable as Google Voice) for ages, think I had it on my old HTC Magic, so up to 3 years ago there. Apple have had it since the 4s phone iteration, so about a year if memory serves. Apple bought it from Nuance (IIRC), dunno where Google got theirs, I guess it's maybe derived from Festival/Sphinx for ASR/TTS, perhaps? Wouldn't have thought Google would bother writing one from scratch as there's so much FOSS groundwork done out there already, maybe they bought someone too.
Was that the bunch that had Tom Baker record a phrase containing all English vocal sounds so that BT could read SMS to you ?
More like time for it to hire competent staff. Twenty years too late is better than thirty.
Would all have been running software like this for years for their logistics ops, likely guys like Tesco, too for delivery and stock scheduling
Total assclownage from all involved
At least you didn't think you were getting an S3 and ended up with a 4s ;o)
For $80k I'd pick up the wrong one first and then go 'Oh my they are SO similar!'
Quite a lot I should imagine.
That has to be over a year's salary for most Americans, surely? Including the jury. Especially if you're offering 'opinion' rather than evidence as it seems she is, you can't really even perjur yourself.
It'd be about ther same size, too ;o)
Mind you everyone can always point to it when Fappleists shout 'biased' for any other fruity article.
So my Amiga A500 was really a Kurzweil K2500rs sampler cos it used a 68000 chip?
There you go, slap an NFC sticker on it. Twenty quid.
How do you know he is a witch?
(Thanks, Terry Jones)
The Chinese have sussed the value of the Fapple tax or mathematically, maybe, the idiot-squared tax ?
Or i<super>2</super> Tax? (Does the SUPER tag work?)
There's only one source the legal downloads can come from so I'd say Big Media had demonstrated it has no intention of moving into the third millennium to join its 'customers'.
Therefore they can't whine, having been given the chance, backed up with legislation. Would be nice if the French gave them a Gallic Shrug saying 'well, you had your chance...'
Is a Galaxy S3 / OneX to be honest.
Maybe the V6 device will get there.
Can't imagine that Pfizer, GSK or chums haven't given DC some 'encouragement' here, can you?
I wonder how many nice, cheap data processing centres they have in Bangalore or similar. :o/
I await my cheque from Big Pharma with less-than-baited breath
They forgot to make it hexagonal or trapezoidal.
It takes a bit longer than a month to bring a phone to market from no prior design, copying your competitor's newly released gadget, you know.
She'd get sacked in the UK for behaving like that, or, the political alternative here which is such public humiliation and disgrace that they 'retire'
Which in Koh's case could only be a positive outcome for the US judicial system, methinks.
That the inconvenient-to-warmist-agenda NOAA report is somehow Lewis Page's fault due to his (and the entire Register, natch) jaded and biased view on
global warming anthropological climate change.
Something's definitely afoot... one of those shriekers is usually near the top of the first page.
It's the mother of all eye-tracking tools on a massive scale so they know what part of the screen you're looking at and if you're looking at their ads or not.
She's made bizarre, seemingly incompetent judgements all favouring the same plaintiff, maybe it's the way the US legal system works but most judgements she'd made would be laughed away in the EU for starters and likely many other countries.
Outside the US she definitely appears openly biased.
Of course, as AC suggested, they should perhaps carry out everything as if they were that company....
Nothing to fear, nothing to hide, mate.
If there is then the inevitable appeal will take place anyway. Maybe Samsung can get it in Seoul ;o)
Failing that at least get that Oracle v Google judge on the job, at least he seemed to be able to demonstrate a modicum of common sense. Lucy Koh just doesn't seem to understand WTF is going on (which is politer than calling her biased, no?)
Then it's a pretty poor description
Is that Koh, being a bit of a fan herself, has already decided what the outcome will be anyway.
Is admitting you have a problem.. well done ;oD
To be fair Sammie wouldn't be filing this stuff with court if Fapple hadn't decided to spit their dummy out in the first place.
If they've paid nothing to Sammie for use of patents then they're surely in the wrong regardless and the question is merely how much.
I am beginning to get the sense that some of these 'thieves' of IP are actually paying out the rope with the small defeats so they can whip up a nice big arse-kicking down the line, allowing Fapple to paint themselves into a corner of their own making.
I did notice in that document...
"Samsung also manufactures Apple‘s A5X processor and is the sole supplier of the Retina display used in the new iPad"
So it's pretty much the Samsung Pad, anyway. Do you think engineers get reference code from 'the manufacturer' with those displays like maybe how to implement multi-touch, etc ?
I think it does music or movies or something....
Wow, that got a thumbs down.
Theresa May is reading?
A spot of restitution for Mr Chambers for the consequences of an utter failure in the British Justice system.
He's lost a LOT because of some officious airport twat(s) and an over zealous and now demonstrably inept judge.
Actually to be fair to the American cars they do look different.
Not in a good way, mind you.
LOL, Have you seen how similar VW, Audi, BMW and Mercedes look, especially from the back?
The Koreans probably think it's a European fashion thing.
The shareholders are all OK and costs are trimmed so profit's there, too.
Wasn't that the insane robo-mech-thing in Saturn 3 ?
I thought it was only the US and its 'allies' that were claiming is was a nuke material processing plant.
In which case it would be a proportional response to something made up by the people launching the response in the first place.
A bit like me calling you fat then, because you're fat, punching you. Regardless of whether or not you actually are fat in the first place. It's a proportionate response to a fantasy world inside my head not necessarily connected to observable reality.
Not that Iran aren't trying to build nukes, they might be, but it's the way the USA likes to roll - more than a little swivel-eyed, especially if you have oil.
Reflects how much they actually know about dealing with security, experientially, rather than what the marketing dept says.
At least MS has a lot of experience ;o)
Then presumably it's a trial about how much they owe in essence?
Perhaps apple thinks it should pay nothing because it's errr... apple. Am I right remembering that if a FRAND owner makes an offer then the recipient can choose to negotiate normally on the offer or not accept it, and, if not accepted then the license in question moves out of FRAND and into normal licensing negotiation?
Just seem to remember reading that in the past. If true then I should think Samsung can charge WTF they want by now, backdated. Not that any protectionist US court would ever do that, if even applicable.
Did the judge point out that deleted emails may well also be in the interest of Samsung's case, too, like 'RE: FRAND licensing offer... Fuck yourself, we are Apple. Love Steve' as well as 'RE: Tablets... yeah we copied you, so watcha gonna do now?'
Does sound like it was worded to cause prejudice against Samsung unless the judge explained that there were potentially mitigating factors down the line. Actually reads more like an accusation that a statement of fact in the article, at least.
I spose Samsung can argue that later if they want, too.
Federated Search techniques predate Apple itself.
Yeah, 'Federated Search', surely - a bog standard IT technique everywhere.
Presumably the 'beneficial licensing agreement' came with a gagging clause.
Scrub the lawyers entry it's devices sold not revenue on that chart ;o)
Just before AC points it out mid-flame.
Pity <li> doesn't work :o/
