Releasing dodgy CDMA handsets initially, then giving up on the technology completely didn't help them much either.
Now only if they would drop dead-horse symbian. Have they heard of this android thing?
Or sell them through Ikea, the only other exposure Americans have to scandinavian design.
Gee, no kidding
I thought the fact that, you know, nobody survived was evidence enough.
My daily supply of penis pill and luxury watch emails has effectively stopped. Could it have really been that simple? How long before Ronald McColo finds someplace else to set up shop?

I'm not really sure what you're trying to tell us. Did you forget what you were ranting about? Were you expecting point-and-click coding or something?
without itunes this is going nowhere
mysterious signals from outer space
I've never thought of it like that before.
Don't forget cloud computing...
The true cross-platform app of the future.
Besides, hasn't the world moved on to virtualisation? It sucked 15 years ago, but now modern computers can finally do a good job of it. The only real users of Wine 1.0 may end up being the 1,076 penguinistas who made it.
If they didn't attack supposed terror states then there wouldn't be such a need for new war gear. See, you have to spend some in order to be able to, uhh, spend some more.
But really, I think satellites can completely eliminate any need for whateversonic warbirds. We already use them for spying, and no doubt they're already working on dropping bombs, now all that's needed is a space troop carrier. Keep a small platoon up there in capsules ready to be dropped at a moments notice to sniff out osama's droppings (or whatever is taking them so long.) You could keep them in a sleep statis state or even cryogenically frozen and let the reentry thaw them out.
"No one lives in Nevada. So, you don't have locals pulling on the bandwidth."
Are they forgetting something? Aren't these so called "locals", better known as customers, the ones these data centres are meant to serve? Doesn't it make more sense to keep them nearest to your customers?
But sure, it's a great place for the US military to keep their flying saucer schematics.
These science bozos just out of nowhere proclaim aliens exist with no evidence or thoughts as to why? Was it the space travel that made them bonkers or those new-car gasses coming out of Kibo?
Must be a slow day over at Slashdot...
What the kernel developer clowns in these comments fail to grasp is just how a computer is used by the other 99% of the human race. If it doesn't "just work" then it's rubbish. As for the argument that BSD is easier to use than Linux, you forget that even Linux has no real useability in the first place. Sure it installs over vista with a few clicks but what after that? Need to install an app, but oh first you need to search the repository for some library with one billion dependencies and then what do you mean I can't just drag and drop...
Steve Jobs as God because Macs are about as close as things can get to "just working"
From what I've read in these pages, Wikipedia is the repository of all evil 2.0. Now you're using its ridiculous conflict of interest policies for your own good?
I get it, any port in a Phorm.
Mine's the rain slicker.
Maybe you should ask Teksavvy...
how they've managed to run a discount ISP that caters to high-traffic users for the past ten years. They've been consistently at least $10 below the competition, even while paying what I'm sure is an inflated fee to use Bell's network.
I just switched to teksavvy, to get away from the throttles and caps on the local cable provider, and now this happens.
Paris because only she can save me now
RE: For what??
The PS3 can be a full media centre. You can keep copies of all your xvid and HD videos on there. game updates and patches can be hundreds of megs each. Downloadable game demos run an average of a gig apiece.
MS probably doesn't want to put costly BD-ROMS in the 360 just for movies, just like they didn't with HD-DVD. Their money is really in the movie download business. They'd do it if the games could use the capacity but that would have to be a whole new console. But then they think the bandwidth fairy is going to bless us with the ability to download all our games.
But it's "all the other crap" that makes the PS3 what it is. It's all software anyway and most of the good extra features have been added after launch, with more to come for sure.
For a console + bluray + media-centre-in-the-making it really isn't such a bad deal.
But when can I slap one on my CPU...
And have it power my desk lamp or something
Good to hear the word getting out
that hydrogen is shite. We could have batteries capable of long range travel in the time it takes to get these fuel cell bastards on the road, but the oil jerks would have none of that. A Tesla with GM's R&D would be on the road by now.
of pots and kettles
"It is highly political," said Fukui
As if there aren't any big lobbies behind hydrogen (hello oil and gas...) The oil giants are going to need something to replace their refineries, distribution networks, and filling stations with in the coming years and hydrogen fits the bill perfectly. Assuming the home filling station is nonsense - and it is from a renewable power source standpoint - these hydrogen cars will depend on the status quo of the stuff trucked in from large manufacturing facilities.
The prospect of future of personal transport bypassing their infrastructure completely is not going over well, I presume, and their hydrogen PR is in full assault mode. I fear it's starting to work, too.
From the report...
"He then went back to the MFW to open up another program, which showed him what processes were running on PPO-1 so that he could record this information."
If all else fails, randomly stab the End Process button in Task Manager
