I think the main point is that the sacked guy posted it with intentionally restricted privacy, something I think the court failed to give enough weight to.
Had it been an open post then it'd be a non-issue.
Being honest with customers
"Buy an iphone4s - the battery life is shit but we're working on it."
Two. Way. Street.
Wouldn't sacked guy have a case for intentional harm against lick-arse guy?
The argument that sacked guy knew crapple's policy on free speech also applies to lick-arse guy as he'd have known this would cause trouble for sacked guy. Hence intent.
Loss of earnings, emotional distress and costs, methinks.
Hope sacked guy is reading.
I've got a printout here from a Farcebook page
Apple products are overpriced shit and it's hilarious how we can bilk the slavering Pavlovian fanbois for cash at every single product rev. Plus we stole all our ideas from Samsung.
... here's hoping
Chances are that doesn't matter
The data will still flow to a US server which the EU has been assured by all and mendacious US sundry that DP laws will be observed while EU purchasing habits are sold to US companies which have operating bases in the EU.
Fucked all the same.
On second thoughts...
YOU'RE USING THE BATTERY THE WRONG WAY
Still FAIL though
I do hereby move
That Fanbois should be renamed FailBois
Cos every Apple update so far seems to have contained a fuckup-101 which, considering they have total control of the hardware should never happen.
Fail. Boys. (or 'Still Amateurs', your choice)
By the sound of it
Facebook. Mobile. SHIT NO
I killed Farcebook running on my HTC Desire and reverted al its updates and wiped its data and cache. Why?
Because every time I use it the serially untrustworthy social network causes the GPS icon to come up on my phone.
Thank you for showing me Android. Fuck you, Facebook for doing it without asking me first, every single time.
In other, less reported news....
The WBC loons forgot to point out that God Hates Haters too...
The US patent system is so broken that it's actually a startup business model now?
Because there really are no expletives currently robust enough in the English language.
Maybe 'Patent Troll' itself should become the world's rudest insult, akin to 'Belgium in the Hitchhiker's Guide.
But then, what would you call a patent troll...? A *&%$&^%$&*"%, presumably!
They do have the right to restrict access to their gaming network however they see fit :o/
Hang on though
If they're charging, say, 3k per site and Marriott have 100 sites.. I'd think 300k would be worth making a call to the legal dept before stumping up a cheque...
It only take Marriott & Holiday Inn, et al to have a word with each other and split costs for further savings, too...
These trolls are fkd... if not they should be. With something rusty.
Congratulations! You have a choice of prizes!
You're a winner!
You may choose from :
An Aston Martin
Seriously, what moron would pick the poxy phone.
Gallardo? You JEST, Sir!
Sesto - Flippin' Elemento, mate, all the way! :oD (Should that be Sesto EloMental ?)
El Condor Pasa?
Iiiiiii'd rather be a sparrow than a snaaaiiiiilll
Do T-Mobile or Verizon currently provide iThings in Americaland?
What a serendipitous time to re-think that. Worldwide, even.
So in other words...
"a patch introduced by OpenSSL in 2002 to fix this very vulnerability was turned off because it introduced incompatibilities in software from Microsoft."
"This vuln should have been closed 9 years ago but wasn't because M$ couldn't fix their shit"?
Really????? Not that I'm surprised, mind you, but a public apology from Microsoft would still be nice, just because they'd hate to have to make it.
Two reasons I went Android
1. Can buy another handset and all my stuff works so long as it's Android
2. Really don't want to be associated with the demographic that buys apple stuff
Walled gardens have no doors
That's not consumer loyalty, it's the pain of moving away from a poor (imho) choice outweighing doing the moving.
There's quite a few appleistas in my current client's co have have looked at my Desire HD and said, hey, actually, that's a pretty nice phone, how well do you get along with it ? And these are gfx designers, hardcore appleistas.
It's actually qute good
It will likely force Apple to reveal design specs to peove (in apple's eyes) that they don't infirnge.
You know how apple hates spec leakge.
Then Samsung will probably wave some wireless patent at apple and tell them to go away and either write a very big cheque or stop making stuff that infringes their patents. Which is anything but a desktop computer and maybe the laptops.
Do you really think people like Samsung don't think sh*t through first or is that the best YOU could come up with ?
If anyone's been a bit hard of thinking it would seem (currently) to be apple themselves for thinking these tech giants would roll over on their say-so.
I think the phrase is 'countersuing' .. e.g. Apple started it.
UK readers got the image of that unlovely fat bloke from the %4000+ APR advert, now? Good ;o)
Still a payday is a payday and is likely a small bill for Apple compared to whatever paywalled-garden-ness apple want to build into their MicrosoftCloud.
And probably a result for icloud, to be honest.
The value of your investment may go up or down
The jerk's investment is underperforming. Unlucky.
I'm sure RIM are doing what they can to survive, this guy just wants to blame RIM instead of himself for making what turned out to be a shonky investment
They have to base their analysis on currently available technology and what improvements can be reasonably expected in it over the time frame.
It'd be more irresponsible to say that in five years' time there will be commercially available teleporting units available worldwide powered by residual energy from a star in a nearby parallel dimension thus solving the energy crisis and transportation issues in a completely free and non-polluting way.
immediate consumer harm
Big media, then.
Or they'll get nicked
Sorry boss, it just fell into the crusher, it's really hard to hold with the gloves on.

Grief as a marketing plan
So, did crapple sue Gizmodo et al last year as part of their marketing plan or did the genuine loss of a phone last year create the idea for a dull marketing yawn this year?
Only one thing remains to be decided.. who is more cynical? Crapple for building in suing and fucking up people into part of their marketing plan to make it look like not-a-marketing-plan or me for thinking they are that cynical (I wouldn't put anything past them)...?
I guess he votes will go fanbois thumbs down, not fanbois thumbs up... as usual. (fandroids? lol)
