What I don't get
is how, in The Land of The Free (tm)(c)(r)(p), you can prevent anyone talking about stuff.
Isn't it contrary to The Right To Freedom of Speech, First Amendment, whatever?
Confused of England
Still everyone's forgetting
You own the hardware NOT the firmware and NOT the software, you license that the same as any other commercial code-based product.
SONY shouldn't really have rescinded the OtherOS option IMHO but it's their prerogative. If you want to run Linux that bad just get a cheaper-than-a-playstation3 secondhand PC for god's sake. What the obsession with some imagined right to run Linux on a PS3 is I don't know. Does it really do something magical that Linux on any-other-platform doesn't do?
Watch the thumbs-down icon counter go for gold...
Everyone must listen to Finntroll
I have both and...
The XBOX360 rarely gets turned on and all dual-format games are bought in PS3 format.
It's just the superior platform, IMHO, everything it tries to do it DOES do. The XBOX is hit & miss on it's non-game-playing 'features' to the point of utter vexation.
No interest in chipping either unit so I couldn't give a toss about the 'SONY/MS are Evil' whingers
That is all.
There's also a negotiation theory that you start from a more extreme point in order to make the middle ground where you actually want to be. Same thing essentially
Leaves it there till he suffocates.
One. Less. Snout.
Come come, Mr Bond
Surely you have heard of my Orbital Numbness Calculatron ?
I bid you Adieu...
Whilst feeling accused
all the way through it.
You wouldn't steal a car...
No. It has a fecking alarm and, when I steal it I permanently deprive the owner of it. Which, incidentally, IS the definition of 'steal', isn't it ? Learn to speak honest English, too, you mendacious manipulative, greedy bastards.
but also ...
assholes do it too
Where's the Automatically_Mark_as_spam_and_hide_everything_in_russian filter?
I'm sure potentially
That in the correct circumstances you actually could catch most of that from lady gaga too.
Maybe a trademark suit is warranted after all.
Did some work at EMI years ago. Remember some middle-manager guy walking through the office talking to someone saying of higher management 'They're shitting themselves. Queen management are all over this.'
So yes, maybe a good shoeing from proper big boys would make her shut her pointless piehole.
Vapid Twat [homage to earlier posting]
I guess having 'Wanker' shouted at you MIGHT sound a bit like that...
"Thank you! I had no idea I was doing 30.06MPH! You live at number 37, you say? Gosh, you know I heard there'd been an outbreak of arson recently and they've still not caught the culprit. I hope you're insured..."
Forget Rock Band...
Arm Band, anyone???
What an absolutely fantastic
reason to avoid buying an NFC phone
I don't think Denialists actually have any problem with real hard verifiable facts.
It's just that there's so few of them where 'man made climate change' is concerned.
successful orbital insertion
'I think he's attempting re-entry, Sir' - Q, Moonraker(?)
The launch guy held the controller the wrong way.
Does anyone know if Apple made it?
If insurance WERE about risk assessment
Then your premium wouldn't go up cos someone in a different county was hit by an uninsured Polish driver. Would it?
Insurance Co's do NOT have your best interests at heart. They have shareholders.
And this is without a SIM, right? i.e. you got operator bills on top? No doubt plenty of halfwits will buy this.
Makes my 18-mo £34 quid a month HTC Desire HD contract look positively bargain basement. Even if I bought it a 32GB memory card.
That's £612 for the phone over 18 months. Oh and ALL calls (except 0845, etc), every text and all data, too. If someone can prove to El Reg they bought one of these off Expansys then they should get a special award.
(Special as in special needs, that is)
You used to be in my Physics class didn't you!
Will you also build my website?
Hey Elmer -
I have a copy of the website here which my 12-year-old nephew has made in Word and he says it's very easy for you to turn it into a secure ecommerce-enabled multilingual site.
I can't pay you but I will tell everyone you did this and you will make lots of money from it
You become a shareholder with the intention of profiting
Everything you vote for is to increase your chance to profit
Therefore if plans were disclosed the expectation is to lose money not make it
Therefore the plans, or lack of, will cause the stock to tank
Therefore the stock should tank anyway.
Sell Sell Sell.
Come and work for Salesforce Europe then
And hire Kneelie Kroes (sp?) for your lawyer, I'm sure she could work up a huge anti-competition fine for MS on this basis, bless her.
In the meantime I guess the guy has no job? I mean, you'd not want to stay with MS would you, even if they let you.
His name's already released
So release the names of the coppers, too....
I thought he had to be charged?

Oh I'm quite sure
they know how they screw people over.
And how much money it makes them.
Perhaps they reduced volumes because their CUSTOMERS starting noticing how they get screwed over and projected demand slipped.
might be pulled at a moment’s notice
That is all.
Bring it on
Sounds like they just gave their permission for 3rd party penetration testing to me. No point being a crybaby when you go offline when you literally asked for it.
