Re: Rockstar claims to be independent from Apple and Microsoft
(2) Which Rockstar seem more than happy to prove themselves. Nice little business you have here, shame if someone was to bust it up.
Re: I am jacks complete lack of surprise
I stopped the Sun exploding last week.
That's all I can say though, everything else is classified.
Only the Anonymous ones
Re: "colorably different"?
I think Samsung should get the word disbefudgingly into their copy and then claim it's whatever they want to mean based upon context.
e.g. The new iphone 5sg+ (when it comes out after the 5sg) will be disbefudgingly similar to Samsung's proprietary [insert thingy here] and therefore we should be allowed to get stabby with Tim Cook
Of course, what's allowed for a US country under the country's legal protectorate ain't necessarily gonna wash for Johnny Foreigner
Re: You're banning it wrong
No less tired than apple trumping the same old shit out over and over.
corner's round enough cap fits...
I notice it was
Anonymous Coward Apple Cultist posting again
Thwarted bomb attacks
They've also prevented at least four alien invasions, three asteroid strikes two Bond ultra villains (and a partridge in a pear tree, cos, well, it's festive time).
Like the bomb attacks, though, they couldn't provide proof cos it's, you know, all classified an' stuff, innit.
But it's true. Honest it is.
Re: They would say that
Oh I dunno. They could always fess up and shut the business the same afternoon
The GC could be modded to have wording such as 'Any clauses deemed not to apply to any sovereignty by such sovereignty shall automatically not be enforceable against that sovereignty's people anywhere in the world against any other sovereign state.'
Kinda like 'If the USA doesn't think that bit applies then it does't apply for all Americans wherever they are and whatever they're doing'
So. We can all torture Americans without redress from the USA (other than bombs, as usual), because they think they can torture others.
Yeah but it's a Mac
So unless you can find really expensive super trendy tape no-one's going to do THAT to their prized look at me gadget. Plus you have to then answer people saying 'what's that stuck on your 'puter?
'Oh, errr, people can spy on you using your Macbook camera'
I'd be amazed if they WEREN'T making one
OCD-dodgy-swivel-eyed-bastards that they are.
Like who the hell seriously sits down and design a land mine that pops out of the ground to waist height and then goes off... This is the fucktard mentality of these people.
Of COURSE they are working on it. It gives them hard-ons.
Re: Am I reading this corectly?
I'll take Deckard's original over Solo's replica any day.
Maybe one won't have the click of death
I thank you.
Nothing to hide, nothing to fear
Presumably the information doesn't support the political climate agenda.
And people marvel at how there can be 'climate sceptics'
Do you think, possibly...
That no-one gives a flying feck about Apple and their expensive tat any more as it's becoming increasingly retro compared to everything else
Re: Commentards are xBots?
Agreed. The article does read like a clutching-at-straws last grenade to diss SONY and try making PS4 look crappy.
I'm surprised it can't do MP3/CD and maybe one or two of the other things which generally get taken for granted these days but everyone knew from the get-go that previous PS games wouldn't work and that it does the sharesie recording thing all the time (it's a feature, geddit?), it's not really a surprise that the controllers don't either and it's not as if it doesn't comes with one in the box - you'll have to buy a second one if you want but big deal.
When I think about how I use my existing PS3 all of these things are complete non-issues. My XBMC Raspberry Pi does everything else _better_ than everything else and is a button-press away on a remote control.
As for pointing out that it won't have analogue out for TVs, seriously, WTF? You may as well complain it doesn't have a UHF out socket and black-and-white contrast mode so you can watch shit on a fucked old Bush valve TV in your gran's attic.
Bit of a whiny non-article. I await the XBOX version for 'balance'. That should be a giggle.
Don't the new controllers have coloured lights on the back so they behave as player-identifying Move thingies? That's one incompatibility right there but agreed, it'd not be a huge thing to support the PS3 controllers, you'd think.
Perhaps margins are so tight they are relying on the second controller purchase most folks will likely make to help make up.
They make more than cameras, y'know...
You do know, right?
Typed on my VAIO which, to be fair, is an epic machine and was bought for the spec not the SONY label.
Re: 'Perhaps the NSA simply just doesn't trust its friends in Europe. '
Not as little as its 'friends in Europe' trusts them.
Yup. Undervalued my backside.
But I get what he's trying to do...
Extract the cash while it's there, then the corp value can tank as much as it likes.

Re: You can bet
Which is exactly why making their own content and cutting those assclowns out of the loop altogether is an excellent way forward.
Re: More efficient than the BBC then
Use a tablet or laptop. Bin your TV.
Surely PixelSense is prior art from 2001
I'd have thought it would in MS's interest to get it invalidated as they'll be liking MT functionality on Surface?
Just stick your phone on vibrate and put it under your pillow.
If you're wise enough to have a recent-ish Android phone then just turn Block Mode on for e.g. 23:00 - 06:00 and no errant plonkers will disturb you with their notifications between those hours.
Cancel the alarm simply by placing the palm of your hand on the screen (with gestures enabled in settings)
Friday pint for all.
Re: "voluntary solutions"?
Precisely. I don't go to the cinema because of that 'ripped off' feeling as you walk out 2 hours later.
Ahh, MPAA, how Kettlesome is thy Pot
If "The MPAA is complaining that Google leads people to infringing links"
Then why are they doing their apparent damnedest to encourage people to go search for them in the first place.
La-La-La fingers in the ears indeed.
Re: Why can't they write some new programmes?
And remade The Italian Job...
in bloody America, was there actually anything Italian in it ?
I concur with your vexed stance.
I know what's causing it
F*cking KARMA. That's what.
2M seems a tiny amount
Even $0.01 per device sold would be more, surely
At least if your old colour TV looked like iOS7...
You could mend it with a quick degauss.

Re: I think keeping an eye on their nuke program is warranted
When the big one comes it'll most likely be due to US interference in something that got out of hand, anyway
I'm still waiting for them to respond to my request
For a picture of my old goldfish, Mr Wiggly, who passed away some time ago. Hoping they have a copy they can send me for posterity.
Is it just me or...
Do all the ios7 screens look like someone got carried away with an old colour CRT and a magnet. I'm sure it looks fab and trendy to people who don't know what a CRT is, much less what it stands for but it looks 'busted' to me.
If you could live with your phone 'without being able to make or receive calls' then you never needed a phone, you just needed something to 'do work on' presumably email, facebook and angry birds which many people seem to think is what constitutes Getting Things Done these days.
If, however Being Contactable is more important than having an awkward mobile SSH client (at least JuiceSSH has relieved some of the pain since its arrival on the scene, nice app), email and other basic officey tasks in your pocket then you primarily need a phone.
I could happily just go with my old Nokia 6230 if I had to, as the work I need to do certainly needs a shedload more than a phone in my pocket and Being Contactable is far more important than anything else on my S4, nice as the extra stuff certainly is.
Re: WANTED: iOS Desk
Then they can sue IKEA for any rounded corners
Depends on your metric
I've ordered our new £250,000 SAN destroyed because it can't be trusted. They're out the back with sledgehammers right now...
What BT are really doing
Is asking you to switch provider on principle.

Unless they're called Vodafone, then they can say what they're willing to pay
Re: I pay my taxes happily because it's a moral obligation
Am I allowed to withhold my portion of tax that goes to MOD, GCHQ and 'projects' like all the failed NHS stuff and the farcical HS2? Not to mention private jet charters to errr... climate conventions.
No. because ethics and morality don't enter into it.
Re: And that's the end of Twitter
As soon as 'shareholders' get involved - that's when services start to suffer cos then it's all about monetisation and getting a return. No mystery there.
How the hell Twaddler proposes to create a sound investment opportunity, though, yet eludes me and, I suspect, them also.
If you ever wanted confirmation of a bubble post-facebook (why their stock is so high is a mystery to me, they're becoming ever more irrelevant), watch this IPO.
Re: Microsoft adopts standard!
Especially considering IMAP's only been around for 27 years, too!
Which would be OK if
The NSA didn't have 'Staff in "Leadership positions" in the IETF' as claimed in an article I came across on G+ yesterday which claims exactly that and that they actively disrupt processes like security standards. Written by someone on one of those committees, i believe.
I don't have a link but a quick Google should turn something up pretty quick i'd imagine.
EDIT: This TechDirt article should get you closer - http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130909/11430124454/john-gilmore-how-nsa-sabotaged-key-security-standard.shtml
Seeing as everyone's getting bored of AGW
Maybe it's a good time to start my Global Freezing Fear Quango and bilk some money out of Cameron
Will they try looking in my home next?
STFU you loon, you'll give them more crazy ideas they don't need.
Mind you, if you have a smart fridge they likely already check your milk bottles for 'terrorists'.
To riff off Noam Chomsky...
Terrorist: Utterly uncompliant, active hindrance to Foreign Policy Goals
Radical: An inconvenience, somewhat of an obstacle to Foreign Policy Goals
Moderate: Largely co-operative, occasionally useful for Foreign Policy Goals
Ally: Likely a member of the UN, often supportive of Foreign Policy Goals
Special Relationship: Bend Over Britain, an accomplice.
You'd think that between them
They could buy 'Corporation Island', make it an independent state and run their own fibre internationally with the money they have. Leave US-only data in the US data centres. Amazon would have to leave fulfillment centres in the US but then only locally store what data's needed for the centre to operate. AWS already has regions.
Then comply with nothing and take their tax out of the US (what's still there, anyway) and even offer to move their employees to the island if they want to go, with zero tax on their salaries.
I'm sure most of their techies can remote work when they want anyway and there'll always be a bank that wants to hold the company accounts.
Re: So which is it?
Because they say so. They're the NSA after all, they know this stuff and wouldn't bullshit you.
