Pretty poor comparison
Remind us again of what Foxconn design and invent of their own such as companies like Apple & Samsung?
Don't confuse the builder with the architect.
Right about where the caps start is a clue
" including the "look and feel" and TOUCHSCREEN TECHNOLOGY of the iPad"
Hang on a minute...
Samsung infringed the touchscreen technology of the iFad ?
Isn't it Samsung that MAKES the fecking display units for those things?
I so hope Google (IBM patents) and HTC (S3 patents) give crapple a sturdy kick in the See You Next Tuesday, they're (crapple) surely the most poisonous and counter-innovative company on the face of the earth at the moment.
Thoroughly sick of hearing about them pursuing their new legal business model now they've run out of other people's ideas (3G, cameras, GPS, etc) to stick in their mobile widgets and make like they invented them.
Said it earlier, worth repeating.
Buy your movies & music secondhand.
When it's too expensive to do business in the current model, these massive media organisations will have to make changes.
They exist on money, and the consumers control it.
Could this be....
Why the big G was comedy bidding for the Nortel stuff? I thought they'd only do that if they knew something the others in that winning cartel didn't.
Where people the world over tend to get letters effectively saying 'Fuck you we are Apple' I suspect maybe a company in Cupertino may be getting a letter saying 'Fuck you we are Google' in the near future.
Not that I'm a Google fan, they wanna own the world as much as the next maniacal polo-neck-touting control-freak but their shit does WORK and you don't need more money than sense to use it.
Note to self: Hire bunting and hold a street party if Google bends Apple over...
Organisations like those don't learn anything while it's cheaper not to change. If we make it expensive for them to do business how they're doing it now then they will change.
So yup, a second hand movement is a good and legal start to that
Buy second hand and close the roads too
Newzbin2, well yeah, we do know what it's primarily USED for, but it's a very poor judgement and sets and horrifying precedent going forwards. The MAFIAA must be getting emergency surgery to stop the laughter.
Anyway, I propose to buy all entertainment second hand from now on. Stuff 'em. Then they'll try to make second hand purchases of movies & music illegal too, and that WILL be partly Royal Mail's problem...
Oh and UK.gov has knowledge of criminals and that criminals move around and that some of them drive so close all the roads...
Not just any justice
This is jUStice
(jUSAtice?) which is a lot like democrUSAcy, which often follows the kind of freedom that gets bombed into you.
Hope they have a good bat
To whack all the sueballs they'll suddenly attract from IP 'Innovators' like Apple, Lodsys, TrollCo, etc
TopTip: Don't make anything rectangular with round corners or lay icons out in a grid
'Admising' but I prefer 'despiring' which also has a whiff of 'despairing' about it
And once paid for
the software continues to phone home?
Blimey, was it his mother-in-law?
Take my wife... etc, etc
Poor UK & USA
Because these kind of nefarious activities are not the sort of thing we'd ever to to anyone. Oh no.
Need a hypocrite tag... Rupert Murdoch or Rebekah Brooks, anyone?
Sounds more like
Oh shit we're so embarrassed about having our lame security discovered.
I know, let's be spiteful to the guy.
Crapple are such a toxic force in innovation these days.
I hope the W3C come up with some method of meaning HTML5 compliance is somehow implicity licensed until explicitly revoked then Jobs' company can be kicked back to the internet stoneage overnight at will if they want a pissing match.
It's one thing actively trying to block innovation in competitor companies by sueing instead of couter-innovating but potentially fucking up shit for everyone is real News International popularity territory.
Labour's Interception Modernisation Programme
That is all
I should imagine his detailed knowledge of crapple's patent litigation policies/tactics/gameplans would make him a superb catch for Samsung, Nokia, MS, Google, etc...
Gimp cos well... apple.
Good for HTC
That crapple consider them such a serious threat to their business that they're willing to go to these lengths
True enough but
In a year and a half you should be due an upgrade....
If you organised your phone contracts right (wifey does ours, sticks it to Voda every 18 months for top-line phones)
1. 'Not iphone' is a huge advantage as you can move brands but retain the OS and your apps
2. see 1
And we're surprised how?
Store your shit on a Yank server and expect to lose even the veneer of privacy.
Surely everyone's known this for years?
We'll soon know
If Stevie-boy's dad's bigger than Samsung's dad
I bet Steve's dad, regardless of bigness, doesn't do Sam Sung Foo though....
Low Orbit Holistic Astro Navigator
Which must navigate by the stars to a pre-ordained destination to blow shit up in a funky (yet holistic) manner
THIS VEHICLE IS RESTRICTED TO 155MPH
Microsoft should know
They nicked Google's results, didn't they?
The ACPO have been taking people out to dinner again...
Why is exactly why no-one believes ecotards any more
It's the same old politically correct claptrap wrapped around a cash grab.
Fuck off and get a business model you greedy self-centered hypocrites
Surely if you'd not bought into Apple and gone Android earlier you'd actually have the choice of a good number of different devices to run your Android apps on?
I'd expect to be able to retrieve my paid-for Android apps for reinstallation if I changed from my HTC to a Samsung, though admittedly haven't had to try it yet.
You just bought into a (more) locked-down closed platform.
Not all free
But many very good ones are, yes.
Or maybe uk.gov could grow some and suggest the content industry joins its customers in the 3rd millennium.
Like that's never been mentioned before anywhere ever.
They'll immediately ban EU flights into the USA costing EU airlines a shitload of money and EU companies too.
Then they'll have to give in and allow the data so flights can resume and demand equally silly quid pro quo stuff.
Don't buy from US companies (Kraft, Apple, MuckDonalds, MS, etc). Then EU companies have less reason to deal with the USA, meaning flights to the USA become less important and tourists will always find somewhere else to fly to... Yeah some stuff is really US-only like CPU's but you can always buy a SONY or Samsung laptop to keep it in, HTC / LG instead of Apple or Motorola, etc...
The yanks.gov will do whatever they want regardless but consumers don't have to help fund their economy.
An intelligence-sharing tool
Allowing the meagre brainpower of several stupid coppers to be combined into one reasonably clever one.
A complete FiaSCO, in fact.
I used to have a stapler somewhere made by RapeSCO, how portentous that was...
At this trajectory
Surely they'll just hit the tempered glass ceiling they never foresaw even harder.
Modern touch phones don't have keyboards (bar a handful of models)
I, FOR ONE
Welcome our new rocking satanic overlords
(And, while not Norwegian or Black, I can heartily recommendations the musical meanderings of Finntroll and their Death Metal Oompah tunes)
That damned census had a lot of invasive questions on it.
It actually read more like a benefit application form.
Typical, you're probably right, too.
Don't fix the problem, fix the likelihood of someone else discovering it.
Gubbernment at its most gubbern-mental
Think of the children, of course, educate them to distrust the lot of 'em.
Strong government intervention?
They're the cretins that created the circumstances that allowed this.
An angry mob would be a far better intervention...
So, if you were a government
... and you wanted to destroy confidence in a new currency you couldn't control or track,
What might you have your Super Sneaky Agency of Freedom Management do?
Yes. Black helicopters. Damned right.
perhaps a UX like this might work?
is session active?
yes --- continue as normal
no --- redirect below
Ask user if they want a cookie
yes -- continue as normal
no -- redirect below
Present info to user that they are not allowed to continue using your wesbite as it needs a cookie setting which they have refused. Present a form inviting them to vent their spleen at email@example.com.
Just need to get an email addy out of the beauro's that people can vent to...
So does that mean -
That Google analytics code will have to pop up cookies on your behalf?
Since the USA took the opportunity to fuck us with a 'special relationship' as wages when we *hired* them for WWII they've been sticking it to us financially ever since.
Hence it's probably 'extradite or lose this investment in the UK' which is the usual tune they play.
BUT STILL IN THE COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE ONLY
Which is why
I put an old YAC number which goes only to voicemail as my contact no.
Surprisignly I never get any emails recordings from it. Shame. Not.
What a pair of utter morons
That is all.
I bought my Desire HD for the spec at the time. An update is bonus++ as far as I'm concerned!
more prior art
I have shareit automated payment reports in my inbox from 1999 and I'm damned sure they were doing it in 1998, too...
In fact I almost certainly have domain renewal reminders from before then too. In fact most of the world must have.
The starving people die and the landwhales just place a burden on the health sector that sustains their lumpen lives.
