I too have an impressive CV
Although an appropriately large payment will have me say Microsoft rules.
On a Microsoft report of a Microsoft product?
My what small cockles you have...
if the data is wrong then you have to refute the allegation with evidence of how the data was collected.
Good luck prising THAT information out of Steve Jobs' Cold, Preferably Dead Hands.
As if I needed any more reasons not to buy a iThing/SpyThing
to admit their SpyPhone/SpyPad was doing something Bad(tm) would be heresy.
And of course it would mean accepting that all the told-you-so people they had been defending Apple against for the last forever would be right.
There's nothing a fanboi abhors more than Being Wrong, except, of course Being Shown To Be Wrong.
So the police can't get at my PC's contents, then if I don't give them my password / power cable / keyboard / etc ?
And I thought they had scary tools like spare power cables...
DB2 used linked lists for db storage if I remember rightly. Must have had methods to count and remove records and indexes into the list, too.
I was using DB2 years before 1997.
If we're lucky the trolls' twisted corpses will be dug up in a few years next time the Information Super Highway is resurfaced. Why proof that you applied your patent to an invention or product isn't required I'll never know. Oh, actually I do. It's cos it's 'merrika
Free on Android?
It seems Rovio are well aware that iThing users are all too happy to compulsively throw money around, fair play to them.
Of course, it WOULD help if...
... 95% of Hollywood movie trailers weren't actually a compilation of the only bits of their idiotic derivative offerings worth watching. Keeps me well away from cinemas, I can tell you, that ripped-off feeling sucks.
Lovefilm on the PS3 is pretty good though they need better search/browsing in the app and a wider watch-online catalogue (which is noticeably improving over time)
The screens are only made in certain shapes and, to be fair, I think Samsung will have the patents and IP for those.
No-one's going to put a rectangular screen in a square phone and phones have never had sharp corners so the rounded corner thing is mullered on prior art.
Apple are ever-increasingly comical and pathetic in equal measure. So glad they make nothing I want.
So what's the excuse going to be
When, following the DEA implementation, profits don't soar.
Maybe the shareholders are just thick but they should have been shouting for real digital solutions from their investments years ago. Perhaps being backed into a corner is what they need.
Nice that they're doing the 'backing' as well as the 'into' parts of that, though.
In other news
Apple has patented Round Corners On Things
Expect everything from baby toys upwards to be hauled into court.
I hear the first defendant called is The Moon.
Greg Bear's 'EON'
You can scare off varmints with a high quality condenser mic?
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
I use this app all the time on my Desire HD for in car tunes.
Really recommend it.
Apparently the person who answered the phone at Toyota at first mistook the caller for a small lonely child crying uncontrollably.
It just turned out to be Apple whining.
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.
More like Twitter Followers.
They contribute nothing back to anything.
Which muppet expected the U-Ass-A to even play according to the rules?
Why it won't be Pirated material
Because legislation will be
Allegedly Pirated Material
as doubtless purchased/mandated by their media paymasters
Does it look just like a Telefunken U47?
It's cleaner than Mary and WAY more fun than Lucille...
Bet Obama knows what a pig with marital aids stuck all over it looks like.
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.

Dear concerned speedgun-toting neighbour
We all know where you live. Of course we do.
You're a f**king neighbour you moron.
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..."
Not my dear trusted friend Claudio Uche Dibe ???
And so forth...
Forget Rock Band...
Arm Band, anyone???
What an absolutely fantastic
reason to avoid buying an NFC phone
I saw 'Landscape home page'
And immediately installed it.
If the fecking thing expires and jiggers the phone I *will* give the dev a day from hell, though.
Fair winds & Following Seas ???
Not Fair Seas & Following Winds?
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.

The launch guy held the controller the wrong way.
Does anyone know if Apple made it?
That's Charlie Sheen these days?
Honestly, I thought it was Russ Abott!
By golly you're right
And presumably they'd get the opportunity to charge a 30% administration fee on the amount prior to sending it along to the needy.
Missed opportunity to profit!
It's too similar
To the trademark Ass-Angel (tm)
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
