As they filed it in London it's in UK (EU, maybe?) patent, so not under the auspices of the grotesquely moronic USPTO system.
Perhaps, being apple, they hadn't yet noticed that a US-based approach to patents may fail spectacularly in another country cos not everywhere is America...
We'll all find out in due course.
I got it on the '360
But, having a PS3 (the preferred console of the two), I d/l'd the ME2 PS3 demo and I thought the graphics looked sharper and the colours richer.
Both the 360 and the PS3 are HDMI-wired to a 42" Sharp Aquos.
Had I not paid 15 quid for ME2 '360 off ebay (yeah, OK, I didn't get a Cerberus key), the PS3 ver would be a winner on comparison.

Simples. The endpoint site gets the data WITHOUT it going through FailBook.
They just got caught trying to dip their hand into their users' till again, so backtracked.
In other words
MS software is still responsible for about 1/3rd of security issues? (18+13 = 31)
Effort vs reward
Anything that requires some effort to achieve/comprehend will be better remembered by people, is kind of obvious but of course nothing exists until someone's done some kind of study ;o)
Maybe that explains why many many stupid people watch XFactor, etc but... is XFactor the cause or the effect....
The same strawman the US keep wheeling out every time they get something else leaked?
We're all gonna diiiieeeee!!!!! Followed by 'Actually, no-one was harmed'
You'll be needing to add all of those Android handsets together then, won't you, to compare like for like...
Apple-ists always seem to go defensive first, maths second, topic third - it's not even a 'device' based statistic, it's OS, primarily.
So in other words
They ARE up to no good to the point that they're avoiding the delay & Streisand effect caused by a trial in Germany.
Dirty work is afoot.
Then by your logic
Mobile phones should be a controlled substance, presumably
I have no idea when an erratic driver is stoned (do you have some kind of portable gas chromatograph or sensitive spectral analyer or something?) but I can damn well see when the feckers are on the phone.
We are all dying to know how you know these drivers are stoned not sleepy/drunk/moronic
Good old Apple
So, with the exception of countries near the equator, your iThing warranty is void in winter.
Just cos you claim your house was 20degC won't presumably wash, either.
Presumably this user walked from house to car, defrosted car while waiting in house then went back to toasty car. I mean, you would, right? I doubt her pocket was sub-zero, either, humans being naturally around 37degC.
It's just apple being, well... apple. i.e. 'Fuck You'

So... get a court order. DUH.
Why don't the feds stop bleating and get a fecking court order instead? I'm sure Google will give them the data within hours if not minutes.
Coppers're the first to whine about proper procedure when it SUITS them to.
I wanna live in a world where...
All the 'Warning, Sharp' labels are taken off kitchen knives,
bags of peanuts no longer have signs saying 'warning, may contain nuts',
where judges tell people suing for stubbing their toe are told to look where they're going, pay costs.
When all the lame obvious safety labels are gone and when all the pikey compoholics are told to grow some common sense, Darwin will mop up the rest.
Killing no win no fee scumcorps will be a great step in the right direction.
is like golf but with a bigger ball and no holes
HUT HUT HUT
So... the hut-hut team carried on searching NINETY MINUTES after he got home and wifey apologised.... ????
'Sorry ma'am, a two-hour search and democracy check is standard procedure in non-cases like these'
But of course, Mr Bond
A frightened population is much easier to control (Goebbels/Goerring - never can remember which)

If the software is sent to the computer
Then how is it different from having a networked mounted apps drive, in essence?
Slightly different mechanism, sure, your puter probably fails to boot if you don't wear a polo neck sweater or something, but it's basically the same thing you could do with Win 3.11 (?)
There's a problem in the Android 2.2 that shipped with my HD in that the init process seems to get itself stuck in a loop and much CPU.
To see if this is your issue, download & install Watchtower process manager, run it and select the middle tab which will display all processes by descending order. Give it a few secs to settle and if the init process is at the top of the list munching 80%+ CPU you need to....
Open settings, go to Applications > Development and turn ON the USB debugging. The phone will think about it, vibrate a couple of times or so and then if you switch back to Watchtower you should see the init process gone and CPU down to 9% or something depending how much stuff you have running.
Vodafone has since issued an update to Version 2.2.1 which seems to fix this, so depending on your network you may have a system update to grab.
Hope this sorts your nattery issues. Mine lasts 3 days on a charge now (I don't have wifi, bluetooth on all the time and don't surf the intertubes all day)
It might at least force M$ to admit that their next OS had less features than the previous superceded version - I never knew Vista was lesser (know it's complete arse though, having tried it) - or at least maybe open some interesting legal opportunities for M$ using the word 'upgrade' in conjunction with moving from XP to Vista ;o)
just decommission them.
Kid was a terrorist
As you're supposed to turn your gadgets off for 'the safety of the plane, crew & passengers', presumably, the kid was obviously a terrorist.
Pensioner's lawyer should argue he was a simple patriot trying to thwart a terror attack, kid should be stuck in Gitmo and thrashed hourly.
If, like me, you have your own domain and wildcarded email (e.g. google apps mail) then it's always an idea to register with sites like firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, facebook@mydomaincom, etc
Then if spam comes to firstname.lastname@example.org you know who sold your email addy.
Sure I'll delete it
Just let's stand and argue about it for a minute or two while the YouTube upload completes, first...
Another vote for really tacky
Tacky & *cheesey* in fact
That is all
Ah but we got something bigger
Now if someone can just fit a barrel & sights to the LHC....
Repel the tide
I think we need to repel the tide of chod flooding Europe-wards from the US before that can happen.
Too much like swimming upstream for anything sane to ever get there.
Maybe when the UK becomes the gateway to Europe from the USA instead of the gateway to the USA from Europe...
Maybe Steve-O should thank Adobe instead
For giving designers a reason to keep buying Macs.
Possibly cos when Wikileaks ask Paypal
The answer is
All your account is belong to US.Gov cos they asked for it.
Oh the irony
If the text messages were to be leaked on Wikileaks
I think the main concern must be what rights you have/lose depending upon which country that data is deemed to be held in.
I think we can all expect the USA to mine data at will if they decide to, having decided the data is stored on a device physically in their jurisdiction.
Other countries may not be better. I think, though, the security should be better than your own, excepting the above. I'd expect Google to know more about network hardening and intrusion detection than I do, for example.
Got 360 and PS3 here. Bought the 360 first as it appeared the better all-round box 4 years ago.
A year later it RROD'd, fortunately just inside warranty so it got swapped out for a replacement unit - the PS3 has operated flawlessly since day one.
Playing video from a non-MS media server has always been a pain in the arse on the 360, the PS3 is vastly less irritating and has a seriously nice playback UI to boot. It even seems to want me logged in to XBL to play stuff back, often complaining that it cannot find the codec otherwise. WTF is the need for me to be logged into M$ to play local videos? Oh.. hangon ...
So much stuff seems also to be tied to the XBL account that downloaded and installed it, e.g. if signed on as a different family member you're prevented access to it.
Just sanity checked my memory by reinstalling SKY player on the 360 - was this really not pointed out in the review?? - you need to be an XBL GOLD member in addition to a paying SKY member to access the SKY thing. It's here on my screen now saying 'Upgrade to Gold'. So, you get SKY but have to pay twice for it. DUMB DUMB DUMB.
When buying games I always buy the PS3 ver now unless it's a 360-exclusive title. The latest Final Fantasy being a fine illustration as the graphics are better due to the BD drive having much greater capacity.
Which brings me onto TV ads... it appears to me that there's two styles of ad dependant upon the console... 'Actual gameplay footage' ads and 'Not actual gameplay' ads, and they seem to be split between PS3 footgae and 360 footage, respectively. Anyone else noticed this?
For me, easily, the PS3 is the superior device, and did I mention it's very very quiet? The 360 just reeks way too much of lock-in and I don't give a toss about playing games online, I simply don't have that much time on my hands.
When people occasionally ask me 'which do you prefer' my answer tends to be roughly: Well I have both but whereas the 360 tries to do many things from games to media, to be a centralised entertainment hub for the home, the PS3, for me, actually ACHIEVES it.
I binned my Lovefilm-via-Tesco DVD rental account off for a full Lovefilm one when I spotted the new Lovefilm icon on the PS3 and the movie streaming worked immediately and really well. The new 4OD and ITV player additions are great though will hopefully get some polish soon.
As a non-online-game-player the SONY premium paid account actually does have value for me as you 'get stuff' out of it. I must have had 40 quidsworth of entertainment out of it already from downloaded games and the like in two months, and it's not even required for the catchup TV stuff, either.
So. PS3 is the big winner in our house out of the two, by a country mile.
killing him may martyrise him in many ways and of course reinforce the entire conspiracy thing as well as confirm that americaland goes around doing what it pleases
whereas a drawn out charade of charges > no charges > charges again (you can bring old charges back you dropped in Sweden?) > no charges if you want him for spying soon makes the public bored and in the meantime you plot how to publicly discredit him so historically he becomes nothing more than a cartoon character instead of a martyred hero of free speech.
Then kill him years down the line because you're a big, powerful spiteful country with grudges and because you can and everyone has forgotten about him.
