1. 'Not iphone' is a huge advantage as you can move brands but retain the OS and your apps
2. see 1
And we're surprised how?
Store your shit on a Yank server and expect to lose even the veneer of privacy.
Surely everyone's known this for years?
The ACPO have been taking people out to dinner again...
Why is exactly why no-one believes ecotards any more
It's the same old politically correct claptrap wrapped around a cash grab.
Fuck off and get a business model you greedy self-centered hypocrites
Surely if you'd not bought into Apple and gone Android earlier you'd actually have the choice of a good number of different devices to run your Android apps on?
I'd expect to be able to retrieve my paid-for Android apps for reinstallation if I changed from my HTC to a Samsung, though admittedly haven't had to try it yet.
You just bought into a (more) locked-down closed platform.
Not all free
But many very good ones are, yes.
They'll immediately ban EU flights into the USA costing EU airlines a shitload of money and EU companies too.
Then they'll have to give in and allow the data so flights can resume and demand equally silly quid pro quo stuff.
Don't buy from US companies (Kraft, Apple, MuckDonalds, MS, etc). Then EU companies have less reason to deal with the USA, meaning flights to the USA become less important and tourists will always find somewhere else to fly to... Yeah some stuff is really US-only like CPU's but you can always buy a SONY or Samsung laptop to keep it in, HTC / LG instead of Apple or Motorola, etc...
The yanks.gov will do whatever they want regardless but consumers don't have to help fund their economy.
A complete FiaSCO, in fact.
I used to have a stapler somewhere made by RapeSCO, how portentous that was...
Modern touch phones don't have keyboards (bar a handful of models)
I, FOR ONE
Welcome our new rocking satanic overlords
(And, while not Norwegian or Black, I can heartily recommendations the musical meanderings of Finntroll and their Death Metal Oompah tunes)
Typical, you're probably right, too.
Don't fix the problem, fix the likelihood of someone else discovering it.
Gubbernment at its most gubbern-mental
Think of the children, of course, educate them to distrust the lot of 'em.
So, if you were a government
... and you wanted to destroy confidence in a new currency you couldn't control or track,
What might you have your Super Sneaky Agency of Freedom Management do?
Yes. Black helicopters. Damned right.
perhaps a UX like this might work?
is session active?
yes --- continue as normal
no --- redirect below
Ask user if they want a cookie
yes -- continue as normal
no -- redirect below
Present info to user that they are not allowed to continue using your wesbite as it needs a cookie setting which they have refused. Present a form inviting them to vent their spleen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just need to get an email addy out of the beauro's that people can vent to...
So does that mean -
That Google analytics code will have to pop up cookies on your behalf?
Since the USA took the opportunity to fuck us with a 'special relationship' as wages when we *hired* them for WWII they've been sticking it to us financially ever since.
Hence it's probably 'extradite or lose this investment in the UK' which is the usual tune they play.
BUT STILL IN THE COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE ONLY
more prior art
I have shareit automated payment reports in my inbox from 1999 and I'm damned sure they were doing it in 1998, too...
In fact I almost certainly have domain renewal reminders from before then too. In fact most of the world must have.
The starving people die and the landwhales just place a burden on the health sector that sustains their lumpen lives.
This sounds like it's going to muller some folks' site stats...?
Follow the money
If they or their clients were making money from those ads they'd not pull them.
Most visitors to those sites likely have AdBlock+ installed so the ads never get viewed/served. They're just spinning it as an anti-piracy move when in reality they're cutting deadwood.
My Desire HD is a great phone. I bought it because of the spec at the time, not for some mythical upgrade it might one day receive.
An upgrade to Gbread might have been nice but it certainly doesn't ruin the device for me by any stretch of the imagination.
Ah but wasn't there a huuuuuuuge thing of water towards the end of the ice age when that Canadian glacier thingy bust loose?
There are some watery incidents in the dim past of mankind upon which I'm quite happy to believe some very backwards & superstitious ancient humans would attribute to a deity cos of their sheer magnitude.
Do remember though, these are still the ramblings/race memories and interpretations of an extremely primitive civilisation all the same.
Exactly the same primitive civilisations that thought Gods and stuff lived in the sky.
Oh. Hang on....
When you can't sue to defer blame for your own shortcomings why, it must be a deity....
Is just a mental crutch for a shedload of people who don't want to think they might be responsible for their own lives and issues.
God's Will my arse. It's your own damned failure to try & take charge of your own miserable existence.
I should think
that it would be incumbent on the Nortel purchaser to honour existing licensing agreements...
Otherwise I could buy MS tomorrow (in theory) and immediately invalidate everyone's Windows/Office licenses and demand more payment.
They did do an astonishing job and they achieved many of their goals.
You're making the understandable mistake of thinking their interests coincide with yours/ours.
Goldman Sachs, Citibank, etc being prime examples.
Another example (more of a pattern actually).. US 'business' invests heavily in poorer country (Taiwan, Korea, etc, etc). Country's economy goes titsup. IMF steps in and gives country money. Money given pays the businesses (USA) debts. Country collapses. USA gets richer by effectively loan-sharking a poorer country. Which is now utterly in hock the The West.
Carbon dating proven to be a con
Agree with hammarbtyp, believe what you like but benefitting from the 'discoveries' of heretics makes you a hypocrite.
No immunisation, life-saving surgery, or strong cheese for you, m'laddo.
If humanity was all wiped out 'cept for Noah's bunch and some cute goats & camels & so on then can someone 'Of Faith' remind us how African, India, Asian, American Indian, Samoan, etc, etc people came about from this remarkably tightly defined gene pool. In just 10,000 years (400 generations)... ? With nobody noticing ?
Hate to put a smirk on crapple's face but
This is way too dear.
Was waiting to see the price of these as I was definitely going to check one out. I do know for a fact, though, that I won't be spending that kind of money on a tablet device. My Desire HD does enough of what that does and I already have it, thanks.
So no, HTC, I will definitely not even be checking a Flyer out now I know the pricing. Fail.
(And no, Apple, you don't make anything I want, either, so stop smirking at the back there)
Govs will love it when....
They are able to trace financial transactions at will as they do with banks.
That is the only reason Govs don't like it, because it takes transactions into the dark from their point of view. Remember cash is 'suspicious' if you're carrying enough of it but if you have the same amount in a bank account the gov can trace it's not an issue.
If you're doing something with money the gov cannot track then you are behaving suspiciously by default. Privacy itself is pretty much 'suspicious activity'.
So presumably, based on that
I could take a photo of, say 50 people, and it'd identify them for me by suggesting tags?
Or do they have to be in my fiends (sic) list?
Do you think
David Cameron has been shagging Hazel Blears?
Gosh. If that turns out to be true and there's a soopah poopah injunction I'm not allowed to know exists I could be in hot water!
Thank god our government keeps us from knowing what we need to know to avoid talking about what we're not allowed to talk about.
Giggs, if you're reading this, remember a super injunction doesn't make you NOT a twat, k?
