How to revert iPhone Apps
1) You need the old version, this is placed in the Trash when you update so if you haven't emptied it you can drag it to your desktop, otherwise use your backups* to restore it to the desktop.
2) Delete the current App from your phone and iTunes (Right click on App).
3) Double click previous App you dragged to the desktop, it will be imported to iTunes.
*you do backup right?
I thought everyone knew that without careful planning transdimentional doorways almost always form at the centre of a large mass, usually a black hole, but if you're lucky just the COG of a star.
I assume they have the proper equipment for closing a jammed open doorway yes?
Spending a year dead for tax reasons.
On the Mac
That description perfectly describes the Authorisation dialog that pops up whenever an action requires an administrator privileges, moreso than the sudo command which is required to be typed before attempting an action, if you don't use the sudo command the admin action simply fails will a boiler plate error, it won't prompt you for a username/pass.
either way it's old hat.
I love this
"And with just a click of the second button of the third row on the right hand side *click* I've switched to the oh, wait, sorry that only works in OODraw, let me just undo that with a *click* on the BUGGER!, no that was my fault, I knocked the joystick.. *click* and... *click* just a sec... *click* and there you go, rectangle tool selected!"
"designed to be used not only like a laptop but also be mounted on its side like a touch-operated all-on-one desktop."
unbelievably it hasn't actually got a touch-screen, so I'd say:
"designed to be used not only like a laptop but also be mounted on its side like a digital photo frame" would be more accurate.
This may go some ways to explaining
Why Apple recently bought their own mapping company.
Where is the "FUDvertising" label?
Company that plans to sell encrypted VOIP app for iPhone announces that unnamed VOIP app that doesn't have encryption, on a smartphone that may or may not be an iPhone, can be intercepted?
How to fix the poll
Instead of wasting an option on 'Probably' which was always a half-assed attempt to load the poll, they should have used options of "Yes", "No" and "LOL".
LOL is to intertnets what shave and a haircut is to roger rabbit.
All aboard the RedHat train
"Microsoft will tell you it will slow down, we’ll tell you it will accelerate like crazy, but the truth is it’ll probably stop somewhere in the middle.”
The front carriages will tear free, the middle section will slam on the brakes leaving the rear section to pile into it?
"if you advertise in Vogue, or in a football magazine, you expect to reach a specific kind of reader and the specific kind of reader expects to see a specific kind of ad"
What a fantastic criticism of behavioural marketing then, seeing as advertisers will find their ads running next to totally unrelated content and ditto for consumer expectations, it's Lose:Lose.
And the fix for that is to continue doing what they're always done (with proven track record), of advertising against content that's complimentary to their market, with a simple substitution of online magazines for printed ones.
Dollars & Grenades
"I think that other countries using 'Dollars' of their own shows a distinct lack of imagination on their part or some kind of sycophancy."
Back when Europe was building empires by annexing bits of new land, Britain, Spain and the Dutch tended to create local dollars for currency in their colonies.
So technically the Dollar is like a badge for getting pwned.
Re Tony Hoyle
"I can't decide if they really thought they could make money out of this or whether it was always a scheme designed to finish off piratebay."
It was clearly the latter, the only surprise in this story is that TPB were/are desperate enough to believe in this fairy tale.
Stack overflow error
it was something about bells.
I guess that impending energy crisis has been fixed?
So we can continue to push these wonderful solutions that by design piss energy all over the place.
The world needs hardware with ultra low energy requirements and compact efficient software to run on it, what we're getting is ever more transistors to compensate for sloppy bloated bug ridden software and half assed charging solutions that add a minimum of 40% to energy requirements.
IT Crowd money shot
They did it for the lolz
"But when it comes to the iPhone we felt that the developers are targeting a proprietary device with proprietary tools"
So the iPhone port of the free open source version of the proprietary .Net runtime costs $400-1000 a year more than the free proprietary native iPhone SDK?
This bold move will surely open the floodgates to development on Apple's fledgling device.
God bless this ship and all who sink in her.
Happily this will never get used in actual construction, so we're safe from a future where balconies and other random bits of building routinely crash to the earth.
The only thing Velcro is good for is kids shoes, because the shoes wear out before the Velcro fails.
pew pew pew?
Isn't this just going to kick off another arms race?
And won't these Airborne Laser platforms be seriously exposed to land based Laser defences that can be properly armoured/hidden and won't have weight or ammo constraints?
Wouldn't it be easier to use a real VM?
With all the roll backs and lockdowns that come as standard?
Fixing windows machines has never been easier since we switched to Parallels, XP running slow? Weird behaviour? *clickerty* there, all fixed.
Saw this coming
Suprised TPB fell for it, whole thing looked like a set up from the off. Score 1 for the content holders, pirate bay closed and owners shown to have been chasing profit, even though it will never materialise.
Title Goes Here
Uncrackable skype tech my arse. (NPI)
The real story here is that Ebay paid $2600,000,000.00 for Skype and didn't get all the bits needed to make it work.
If any Ebay shareholders are reading this, I'm doing great deals on Wicker men, delivery to the Annual shareholder meeting can be arranged.
Re Simon Newton
Nail on the head, and of course when Apple fixes it so that you can't spoof ID's and therefore breaks the push hacks again, the comments will be filled with "That why Apple is evilz" comments.
This doesn't sit right with me
I mean it too perfectly illustrates the shortcomings of Amazons Kindle and their licensing agreements, It's [s]hard[/s] impossible to imagine that either Amazon or the publisher requesting the books removal were ignorant of the sort of sensational media coverage this would guarantee.
I suspect Amazon was gamed here by a competitor that saw a stinking great whole in their business model and exploited it to maximum effect.
Still facts are facts, so I guess we should thank whoever is behind this for bringing it to our attention, astonishingly incompetent of Amazon to think this issue wouldn't be a problem for Kindle sales.
The probability of Apple releasing another iPhone or a Tablety thing with a pico projector before Xmas is zero.
I don't think you'll see this in next years iPhone either, unless there's a major advance in battery tech it'll be swish new design, double the GB, OLED screen & cameras plural.
People explaining labels
Gmail uses Labels like iTunes uses playlists.
This organisational system is also the reason that Gmail doesn't play well with desktop mail clients* and is best used from the web interface as intended.
* When Labels are mapped to IMAP folders you get message duplication on the client, and don't talk to me about POP, they should be ashamed of themselves.
Will they be re-branding as MicroFarce?
The mad thing is that this is definitive proof that so called freetards are quite willing to pay €5 a month for all you can eat content.
I'd say it's priced about right, and if a similarly priced legal service was launched before xmas It'd have a decent shot at getting an entire generation that's never paid for any content to seriously consider the idea, possibly even buy into it.
But lets face it, Virgin announcing £20 a month for music alone made headlines, so they're still living in fantasy land.
I hope the Dutch media picks up on this case and highlights the shocking level of incompetence displayed.
Also, regarding folding tabloids to create new stories, It's always seemed to me that they do this themselves. Often I've glanced at a paper and seen Public figure X accused of Something Bloody Awful only to notice on closer inspection that these are really two independent stories simply positioned rather unfavourably on the page, the cynic in me suggests these frequent juxtapositions are all about sales.
I see problems
Not with the execution, which will probably astound us all, or with the appeal as I notice enough people type straight questions into Google as is, no the cancer that this project will succumb to is best illustrated with a question: How is babby formed?
Simply put, any Machine Intelligence that learns from questions posed by the yahoo answers mob & the chantards will eventually attain all the smarts and delivery of a demented LOLcat.
It's Inevitable all right...
Just not any time soon, you made the point yourself, we've long passed the computing requirements for text processing and spreadsheets, it's only a matter of time before the chippery needed to power an office workstation is cheap enough to stick in a cereal box, Ditto for the intertubes, which get faster and more mobile each year.
The clock is ticking on this concept, regardless of whether it sucked the last n times people tried.
SATA superdrive makes sense now they are using them in the laptops, extra Mini DVI also, seeing as mini display port won't play nice with a lot of existing monitors/tv's yet they wouldn't want to exclude their own monitors from sales. 2GB Ram is believable, 5 USB ports looks plain wrong though, smoking gun in this photoshop.
In other news, The National Trust announced it's intention to downgrade all listed buildings by one level, effectively putting thousands of landmark buildings at risk of redevelopment.
"Granted, our entire raison d'être is the preservation of historic property" A spokesperson explained, "but after some deep reflection and an impromptu pop quiz with the pub locals, we realised that it's all too much like hard work and frankly, we can't be arsed with it anymore"
