Re: Has (Style over substance)
You answered your own question
Re: Other sites have statements ....
Though payment in AUD might be the spearhead... wait for USD, GBP, EUR, JPY to follow, maybe.
Can you factory reset an iThing without external hardware? e.g. Power + vol down + home from poweroff on some (all?) Android devices. I guess not otherwise this might be mentioned as a last resort recovery option.
If the 'ware prevents you switching off your phone to do that you can always take the battery out to reboot it and perform a reset combo. Oh. hang on.

Hats and warm coats handed out in Hell, snowmen sighted.

Re: This is just stupidity
I actually suspect that Apple IS Sammy's advertising model...
Re: This isn't about phones looking like each other
Except they were ordered not to mention their F700 touch phone and were banned from presenting evidence based upon it.
And as for touching a screen I'd say that the touchscreen manufacturer would have had that code first, as part of their dev/reference material provided with the specsheets and other component collateral.
Re: Any relation
Will be interesting to see what it can recognise...
Will be impressed if it knows here Come the Fleas (White Noise)
Re: I would argue the situation was even worse
I can't even be arsed to vote. Even a 'protest' vote would mean voting for the novice buffoons instead of the grandmaster buffoons and I'd rather the slightly warped novices didn't get a crack at anything to be honest.
At the end of the day it all seems to boil down to corporate backhanded cash-for-policy anyway so it's largely irrelevant who gets in to wherever.
Except Sammy upped the price of iProcessors to Apple so they probably paid Samsung's bill for them by now.
Is it even profitable to sell in the USA any more?
Makes you wonder.
Automated piracy detector?
Can't imagine they'd want something like that to help out the average consumer, after all.
Re: Glenn touring the US?
... and he'd be right.
The one with some Noam Chomsky in the pocket (no, not kibbles)
Re: This not-requiring-Gold-for-streaming change ...
What, and take away a tiny reason to upgrade to XB1 ?
Re: Head screwed on better
Playstation+ is pretty good value for money, mind you... There must have been at least five big titles given away last year for the forty quid sub you pay.. stuff like Bioshock Infinite, etc and it covers both the PS3 and the PS4 at home. I binned XBOX Gold membership ages ago when I realised it was a waste of money for the most part. The '360 only ever gets turned on when my daughter plays Skyrim and I'm not even considering an XB1 at all.
Will be interesting to see if SONY get Gaikai working this summer for legacy games (and then get it working in EU)
Suggests coldness ahead. That's not gonna fit in.
No climate quango has 'reimagined' this as Interwarming Anomaly yet?
"just a nasty bully"
Oh come on.
If any nation should understand that it's the USA...
What a eramthgin
"refused to let the government watchdog see it"
Sounds like an FOI opportunity?
Cos if it's the NSA doing it then it's the National SECURITY Agency therefore not economic by deniability/definition/whim/etc
Mine's the one with the Noam Chomsky book in the pocket.
But aren't apple
Still supposed to actually pay something for the SEP IP though...?
Re: Has he broken any Chinese laws?
The Chinese will have laws for sure though a major mitigating defence in any trial would be
'But your Honour, look HOW MUCH it fucked the Americans off'
'You're right, young man. Case dismissed!'
All US interest. Even though the 'laws' are international they still can't be bothered to even attempt to phrase anything within the 'International Community' (of right-think).
It's Me Me Me as usual. Sounds more like a pretext to tie Iran together with China though so a new uber-evil empire can be created in the 'Hearts and Minds', blah blah blah.
I do hope the Chinese guy has a Hollowed Out Volcano or an Undersea base, though. For real. That would be most excellent.
No, that's the best part, I don't have to! Yes I've used MacOS and the only thing I like about it is 2-finger scrolling.
Makes my £850 core i7 8GB/1TB/2.2GHz (no flash) 1080p 17" VAIO I got Xmas before last look like stunning value for money.
Re: "And it’s an area where nobody has figured it out yet."
As in Apple did not invent it.
Just leaving this here for posterity when someone gets vilified at some point in the future by AC's (Apple Cultists) for claiming that Apple did not actually invent it...
Maybe for the odd patent trial judge, too.
Re: Oh wow.
I'm not so sure the W stands for 'Wristwatch'...
Re: Like, oh, 95% of the people on the planet
Or maybe they don't want to pay the Microsoft Tithe for FAT, keeping onboard memory formatted internally to EXTx or whatever
Re: Five servers down at the same time ?
I'm still trying to work out which branch of government can benefit from this, having instigated it to cover up some dodgy doings they want to carry out.
It'd serve wonderfully for much Oracle-related freude of the schaden variety, also
Re: RIAA concerned for artists?
To paraphrase the opening credits of UK sitcom 'Porridge'...
They accept artists as an occupational hazard
I found Glass quite useful, to be honest
As when someone in my G+ stream has a profile pic of them wearing Glass I know to uncircle them.
Apple make nothing that I want
Though I bet they don't believe me and I bet they think it's someone else's fault in any case.
If hubris had mass One Infinite Loop (or whatever their address is) would contain a black hole.
Not forgetting, of course
That everyone (naturally) has listening equipment and environments conducive to eking out the very lowest bits of resolution for their enjoyment.
You know, like non-rectangular damped rooms with KEF/Dynaudio/whatever speakers and pro-audio valve amps and so on (and on and on). Or whatever the current trend is for listening environments.
Not to mention the ears to appreciate it.
It helps put a little less money in the pockets of organisations like Monsanto ?
Re: "Intollerance(sic) won"
That'd depend on who you think's being intolerant I suppose.
The one chap who was discovered to have a particular point of view or the swathes of people vilifying him for for not holding the same point of view as them.
Pots and kettles
Maybe it's time for a new word to be coined.
Re: cut in two places?
Ingress and Egress
to the NSA, natch
Returning a laptop to PC World ruined this bloke's credit score. Today the Supreme Court ended his 15-year nightmare
1600% ?!?!?! Are Wonga having a Spring sale or something?
From Googling 'Wonga dot com apr'
"Our flexible, short-term service comes with a representative APR of 5853%"
Or issue stock commensurate to the scale of contribution.
Ah. But Zuck wouldn't own it then would he.
Refund the KS contributors twice.
As in second hand
So it's still for everyone else to solve
Other than the entertainment co's
Re: 60 W led?
Probably 60W effective
Re: Apple Innovates Again; first it was corners, now sticks!
C'est un lapin sur le patinoire....
Maybe Tim Cook's mother was a hamster?
Am I the only one to realise
That if you put it into a monitor you can look at the screen and be looking at the person you're videoconf'ing with ?
Does anyone know if Samsung also make display panels?</sarcasm>
Also and excellent opportunity
To upgrade the fecking things to take card payments at the same time so save foraging for change in the first place.
+35 thumbs up
You can largely avoid Farcebook if you choose to. No such luck with GCHQ/NSA
Re: promises, promises
Change your info to rubbish and stop using the app. Chances are they don't version your data updates.
I thought The Agency were only remitted to foreign ops, this would seem to imply they'd been operating domestically...
