lpt0 is on fire
Two major banks and the LSE.
Surely I'm not the first to spot a suspicious coincidence?
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.
will we be able to buy the illustrated book from Waterstones ?
His name's already released
So release the names of the coppers, too....
I thought he had to be charged?
HTC / Android
That is all :oD

Dear trusted friend,
We are being experiencing legal troubles in sending your $4,000,000 remunerations to your banking address.
Please send fraud lawyers as urgency to expedite your swift payments
Trust in God we shall prevail
Your trusted friends

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.
Right to bare arms
*Rolls sleeves up...*
OK, I get my coat
Right to bear arms, OK, but...
A few thousand armed demonstrators excercising their right to bear arms wouldn't last long against a bank of military miniguns, teargas and skincinerator rays.
Then they'd be labelled terrorists and their families hunted till the end of time by the NSA/DHS or some other TLA.
The right to bear arms is already meaningless in the good ol US of A. You'll just get mown down by your Govt. for trying.
Big brother, cos his minigun is wayyyy bigger than yours
It's fine for Microsoft/XBOX then, I guess.
SONY's network, SONY's software, they set the rules. It's that simple, don't whine about it.
Appropriate business response?
"Don't support Apple"
Just bung it on Android or WinMo or something, nay EVERYthing, else
Oh, and a Fail, too.
And yes, you guessed it
A Fail icon to boot :oD
Go get the industry experience, the required know-how, solid respected references, a killer CV to distill it all for a client to browse through and put your income where your mouth is and go contract independantly.
If you have the ability.
Of course, this assumes you're in a career path that has any progression. 'Shop Assistant' really doesn't come up very often in the job boards and tender lists, so you may need to retrain as something useful/skilled, also.
You're absolutely right there but...
I've also been fortunate enough to meet some seriously shit-hot contractors who are well worth their rate, too.
The crap ones don't get asked back and you can bin them off quickly enough cos they're NOT employees ;o)
Free for personal use
First Direct still mandate using IE for Internet Banking Plus (ordinary internet banking works nicely on anything) which they defended as saying their site had been security tested etc, etc, which yes, is fine, until you factor in the actual browser itself is possibly compromised, not their site, and they don't have control of that.
Maybe someone at First Direct will even read this and get a clue.
... and then I woke up
That is all.
the a mate Farcebooked it there n then and the media 'received word' of said event :o)
I'd Farcebook that immediately complete with snap!
Should make for an easy appeal
"The Judge demonstrated no competent understanding of the technical issues involved and was therefore insufficiently able to pass down an informed judgement"
Antivirus is at least partly snakeoil.
And also no substitute for educating yourself and using common sense.
It's a handheld electronic device with buttons and joysticks on it that allows you to interact with the software.
Or, in your case, a meatsack
Too many people die from it
'Evidence' would be better, this is the UK police after all.
We were hopeful that there could be a simple solution
And which, CuddleFluffyMumsieKins exactly, has the technical fucking werewithal to produce this hi-tech panacea?
These la-la land people are precisely why safety labels should be removed from everything allowing Darwin to steer his true course.
A highly polished result
Yes, it was very shiny but lacked most things that other phones had had for a long time.
There's something better than prison
It's a called a boat. Preferably a leaky one.
Why it seems like a good idea to someone to pay for their detention for up to 9 years instead of telling them to fuck off and don't come back unless they want to be <strike>shot</strike> put in prison I do not know.
Lifetime suspended 3-year sentences enforced upon their return to UK soil would be a shitload cheaper and possibly even effective.
Consoles != Phones
There's a huge choice of phones but all major consoles are under the thumb of the manufacturer - SONY, Nintendo, Microsoft.
I have no interest in modding the consoles, the PS3 especially works really well (yes I have Xbox360 & Wii to compare with) and I have my own Linux boxes for Linux-y stuff.
If you don't like a locked-down phone you CAN go and buy one that isn't from elsewhere without dicking around with jailbreaking...
Get an Android phone and install the freely available ConnectBot SSH client and perhaps AndFTP for SFTP file management.
And no dicking around with jailbreaking something you bought cos it was shiny but couldn't do what most other phones can.
Unless you're American or Chinese
Buy European or Japanese, Korean wherever possible instead.
Divert your money away from these countries' companies. Always buy a .co.uk (fr, de, es, etc) companion domain
So, I deduce that...
1. Aussies have a far better sense of humour as they were ON THE SHOW having the piss taken out of them royally (goes for Germans, too, Sabine Schmitz and last TG's international Anglo-German compo, anyone? Fancy having less sense of humour than the GERMANS, cripes!)
2. Mexicans aren't above trying to grub for some ambulance-stalking cash
3. This woman is more of a Mexi-can't than a Mexi-can if she's STILL a student at 30 (or maybe she went back to school so she could play with shiny things)
A deuce of a case, what, Holmes, old boy?
Oh and I think you'll find it's political correctness against the world rather than anything against political correctness. No-one hates simple truth & facts spoken plainly more than the feckless and likely flatulent PC community (in general, not in TG land!).
How much doing this could dilute non-H.264 support. Maybe their altruistic tendencies will prompt Apple and Linux versions shortly.
Wonder how long it'll be before someone finds a security flaw in it.
Like Mandela was a nice chap in the early days, ANC, etc.
'Necklacing', anyone ?
Make sure you're present
All the way from the swab to the post-office so Chavelina can't swap your swab for the real parent's goop while your back's turned...
About time too!
Perhaps this forms the first 'thrust' of the Wikileaks banking mega-leak?
Not long before wikileaks truth-rapes someone in banking, now
Here's an idea
Insead of saying 'I won't be buying Apple next time around', don't say it at all, just do it and leave them to wonder where the fuck their revenue went without having the chance to prepare/backpedal to retain userbase.
And now they're crashing Toyota's too
Of course, as mentioned previously, the best thing is to just not buy Apple stuff.
Yes, I'm quite aware how the title reads in relation to the actual facts of the relevant article, thank you.
Where's Andrew Crossley when you need him
Someone ring him up and tell him there's a job for him
"Truth-rape" is probably more apposite
If you have nothing to hide
Then you don't need to squirm
(So I guess all the banks are squirming. Good. Maybe WL can info-rape some UK banks next.)
As I posted alongside the link when I shared it with some UK and international pals on Failbook:
"In case anyone wanted to know why the UK is such a moronic, pointless and drivel-slathered nation these days then I think this goes a long way to summing up why our new national sport is 'Complete Apathy to Everything'"
The main reason uk.gov keeps everyone so poor is so they can't afford to fkn emigrate.
Facebook moving into search
Would be an outstandingly comical idea to anyone who's tried to find someone on Facebook using 'Search'
No. I don't think Failbook will be moving into online search, either.
CIA asks Apple for...
I think it's only illegal to PURCHASE alcohol (or attempt to) under the legal age, not actually consume it.
Anyway the dolt should report it stolen. It was INSURED, right? You know, like, it cost FIVE HUNDRED QUID (hahahahahahah!!!!) ... DUH.
Voice to text
Nice. They'll store & index your conversations. Maybe even the compressed audio, too, to 'help improve their algorithms'.
Then USA.gov will subpoena your data. Then your life. Then, if innocent they'll just cut your sentences up and rearrange them into something that DOES make you very guilty of something-or-other.
OK, *perhaps* not that last bit...
Come, come, Mr Assange, surely you don't believe we are capable of <insert sinister-ness here>
Or maybe they just watch Diehard2 over and over. Or anything else with an airport getting harassed with munitions
Thank god the guys at Cern/LHC don't play Halflife!
... or do they?
If you're going to count the iPod touch
Then you may as well count the HTC Desire's which also have phone functionality included ;o)
