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)
This passed the 'is not utterly fucking obvious' test???
The sooner USPTO causes the US Economy to collapse under its own stupidity the better.
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.
30% less share eh?
Maybe it *is* cheaper to use lawsuits to damage other companies' business after all.
Unless they backfire on you, at least.
Coming from Steve Ballmer, the only thing in the universe currently able to do more damage to Microsoft Corp than Windows Vista.
Is there a superhero called Darwin..?
Oh stop it puhleeeeas
You're all going off at a tangent
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!
Go buy a camera instead
Unless you think you should be able to make phone calls from a Canon D5 maybe
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.
Bricks of War
Can't help thinking that would have been better :o)
Top banana all the same!
A Mistake My Arse
No, I don't mean my arse is a mistake I mean
Ohhh you bloody well know what I mean :oD
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 ?)
They'll leave LTE out
Cos they need something to put in the iphony 6 so all the OCD upgraders will buy it
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.
It certainly does
and VHS also outsold Betamax
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.
So how many have Apple yet to sue?
One look at that diagram kinda says 'Sucks to be Apple, next year', seeing as they've pissed off most of those co's already.
Apple to countersue VIA
Cos their chips are rectangular with ickle roundy corners
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.
P. B. O'B. surely?
Paddy Brendan O'Brien ?
Don't you have to profit from it to be a Pirate?
In fact isn't it not-illegal to just download something (and not redistribute it)?
Yeah, old point, I know... coat grabbed
A pot meets kettle moment
"The copyright-holders argue that the law hasn't kept pace with technology"
*ahem* outdated business model *ahem*
Good job they don't use gelatin
or they'd have to make a vegetarian version...
Good. Another complete shower that can fuck right off.
Shame they can't take the MAFIAA with them.
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.
an Attention Surfeit Disorder then ;o)
Or they'll get nicked
Sorry boss, it just fell into the crusher, it's really hard to hold with the gloves on.
Sent from my iPad
So how much more for the software?
Or do these things come as standard with a Realtime Binman(tm) app with a trendy name like REFUSENIK or something fun & quirky?
Buy your movies and music second hand
Thank you for listening...
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)
But to be fair
Who really gives a Nun's **** what fucking Apple think.
This has caused me to coin a new(?) term...
i hope the Manchester guys patented this stuff
And what about
The companies that have been collecting this data on their device users?
Absolutely spot on.
Poor grammar? should that have been 'whose' instead of 'who's' ?
Mine already is :o)
Good job I don't believe anything spouted by scientists and quango's who's funding & existence tends to rely on spouting it...
Apple don't make the displays, so someone obviously thought of it before them.
Who makes these displays... hang on... Samsung make some of them... oh and Apple use them...
I just did.
