And there I was, ...
Hoping this made Daily Mail readers a Darwinian thing
So... the value of stealing a currency which then devalues?
Bitcoin stuff gets hacked, coinage gets stolen, values plummets, ill-gotten gains become worthless (ish)...
Who benefits from stealing a thing that then becomes valueless?
The people whom that thing threatens - banks, governments, etc.
Ted - maybe that's what all the 'Dark Matter' is in the universe... that idiot's ego.
"a televised debate"
Because that would be the most professional thing a board member could possibly agree to do, right?
What an utter twunt Icahn is.
A curious effect though
Is that it was so believable which means most people think it's entirely plausible.
Which reflects on Apple and their public perception, regardless.
I can't think what it reminds me of more...
I'm going with Hellraiser as it looks like a dismembered body nailed to a wooden post
If anyone understood and sympathised with protectionism
You'd think it would be the USA
Perhaps Protectionism is like a fart - only your own smells good.
Who, other than Microsoft, and presumably Adobe to some degree, will be supporting this?
Or is it just another MS IE-only white-elephant clutch at some kind of ownership of online stuff to keep themselves seemingly relevant to shareholders?
Perhaps I misunderstood how and where it's supposed to work....
Re: Damn thieves
How about writing 'FIBRE OPTIC - NO COPPER' in very clear letters on the cabling.
Possibly in Romanian, also.
Cos Farcebook having your call data
Is precisely what everyone wants, right ?
They'll probably even store the calls, too, hence why they'll optimise the hell out of it to reduce data footprint
Re: Don't worry...
I think possibly that Warmists and their ilk are possibly like that idea about Tacheon pulses...
They travel backward through time so any science contrary to the beliefs of the Church of Warmology that has happened in non-warmist (e.g. 'our') past has yet to happen in Warmington-Upon-Sea and therefore doesn't exist, provoking the usual LALALALA response. QED.
I remember 30 years ago 'people saying' that if the sea level rose just 2 inches (5cm) then the world would end. Yet it rose over 3x that last century? Clearly there's a history of Sandwichboard-Wearing Doomsaying entrenched in the 'culture'.
P.S. Dont panic Mr Mainwaring!
As defined in the Bible of The First Church of the Science of Warmology (disclaimer to the sarcastically-challenged: conjecture)
Mind you, no one justified a war or massacre with Atheism (that I can think of right this second)...
There's a bazillion faiths and gods but there's only one non-belief. Mine's the one with Origin of Species in the pocket.
Re: Well humans where around 8000 years ago
You'd better check with Ken Ham about that, I think. Just to be sure....
I like the way they 'accuse' the government of trying to save money. Well DUH, they obviously don't read the news and are unaware that everyone's skint.
More like they're accusing the Government of conspiring to not give money to Microsoft.
HP Elitebook 6930P
Touch controls on laptop surface above keyboard for volume, etc
Wow. 80 million man minutes....
Over 152 man years to update em all!
Re: It can be a grey area ...
Agreed, support in my mind (if it comes with a product purchase) expires with resale, like a car warranty.
Only the original purchaser gets the benefits of any bundled services. I'd expect to have to pay for a support contract of some sort if I bought secondhand and needed one.
"FAST is yet to come across any appropriately qualified legal advisor..."
Conversely, by their own admission, FAST must be unable to say that it is NOT legal.
That sword has two edges

Just spotted KVM/XEN in the title.
Deleted the whole Virtualbox post, LOL.
So barter is illegal, then.
Great Googly Moogly
Who'd have thought that Twitter could be a crap investment?
Re: Just shows the monitor is needed
Yep. Nothing to hide, nothing to fear, right?
Re: Return to vanilla Android
In the Apple Cultist (AC) universe, maybe.
All I've seen IRL is people either sticking with ithings or ditching them for (mostly) Sammy or HTC, not ditching droids for ithings.
Mind you I work in tech, not marketing.
We've just been watching all the old Trek (amazing how watchable that stuff still is after nearly 50 years) and I remember an episode (The Enterprise Incident?) where Kirk pretends to go bonkers, crosses through the Neutral Zone into Romulan territory and gets nabbed by the Rommies on purpose so they can get their hands on the cloaking tech they didn't want the Romulans, seemingly, getting from the Klingons...
The Klingons had already used cloaking many episodes earlier.
In TNG, certainly, the Rommies used singularities to power their shizzle, though those Warbirds are of a significantly different class to those in TOS.
Surely this was already done
By Samsung with the NFC share thingy?
It's a bit rich for apple to patent an NFC thingy that's been done elsewhere when they don't even 'do' NFC, albeit the process might not be sharing a pitcure, it's obviously trigging a data-related action.
Though it is apple after all
Lawyers everywhere will be putting the bunting out, doubtless.
And here you are yet, posting to it
...no profit sharing with your retailers
Don't forget the shareholders, either
Re: 1.3 billion?????
I'll do it for 7.5 million, conditional on a copy of the requirements first.
No will to be Good or Creative
Both of which are ample qualifications to retrain as a corporate lawyer ;o)
In other words
It's worth up to an additional $1800/hr to Apple to make life difficult for the $1100/hr guy they don't like.
Which in of itself both justifies the guy's $1100/hr rate and his being there.
So, is what's really being said here
That Android is more desirable than Win8 for people on those kinds of machines but the Manufacturers still can't afford to piss of the Hand of Redmond just yet so they're keeping Win8 on it cos of the subsidies or something?
Re: Nice thought, logical ideology, BUT...
Or even limit the damages you can claim to a multiple of the amount of product revenue you have made in which the patent is employed.
Oh, you don't make anything? That's unfortunate...
Re: Nice thought, logical ideology, BUT...
I'd have thought being liable for the sum you're seeking from the defendant (to be paid to the defendant plus costs) if your troll case goes against you would be a simple, effective remedy for many cases.
Of course, having to declare the sum you're seeking in your filing would then be mandatory if it isn't already.
Actually, to be fair...
I resent people who are stupid enough not to question shit like this in the first place.
They deserve SnatchChat
Re: Oh honestly...
You can guarantee SnatchChat won't be telling anyone about this but I have have withdrawn my buyout offer of 45p.
They'll need to find a new buyer now. That $3BN is looking like a huge lost opportunity now, I bet, along with my 45p.
That's his job cos Apple were working-broken within the law, getting them to work within the law by definition means he'll be making life difficult. It's corporate rehab.
There's more money in price-fixing.
Unless you get caught.
Apple really are like a small over-privileged child with rich parents and an over active hubris gland.
I hope they die on their arse. Well, we're allowed to dream.
Trolls outsourcing trollery to trolls
Quality. Structured trolling.

Does it fly and have two spikes and a drill bit ?
Re: Perspective from Target Shooting
Yep, I suspect VP8 was testing the defences and calling out the behaviour of the other 'interested parties'.
Now their hands have been shown Google should hopefully do a mopping up with VP9 by comparison. Everyone forgets that Google usually plays a much longer game than other co's so a strange move now may well be a litmus test for a larger move in the future which has 'learned' from today.
Re: 4x is coming this year to a screen you can afford
13" at 4k resolution?
I can't think of many more pointless things. A 32" monitor on your desk instead of 2 or three 1080p ones, though, yes, full steam ahead please!
How inept/lazy/both are they?
Like it's something on the level of integrating quantum gravity into the system to just remember the last time an IP made a request and then deny it again within a certain timeframe.... AS YOU CREATE THE INITIAL CODE.
It's a fifteen minute job. I wonder if they even hashed & salted passwords if they're this hopeless.
Re: That turned down $3bn ...
Yep. Worth about 45p now.
In fact I'll offer them 30p cash right now. Take it or leave it, one time offer.
Re: New Inquiry.
And Elvis, Hendrix and Jim Morrison.
The fact that Madeline McCann may have also worked for MI5/6 and was just undercover as a small child should not be overlooked and perhaps an investigation into abduction by terrorists and/or state actors should not be ruled out.
Especially cos there's no evidence for any of the above, either, which makes it extra double-plus shifty, of course.
