to be saddled with that surname in this situation.
I'm getting "Sold Out" on mini-ring page, both last week when the story first ran and again tonight.
While I realize many/most of these things will be shoved under desks or stashed in server closets, I don't why the manufacturers couldn't do a little extra design work to make these things a bit more attractive. Style isn't everything and form should follow function but there's no reason these boxes have to be so butt fugly.
Just bought a 2nd M7 to have a spare one when they were on sale at BB. Just have to be a little choosier when loading up your music due to the 32 GB limit.
Well, after we discover that security has been compromised, that is.
And ... the worldwide corporation I work for (which shall remain nameless) is *still* on XP/IE6. New PCs (every two years) are still imaged with it.
Most sites work ok with IE6 but I've had to switch to Firefox for my personal surfing for a couple otf sites that bring IE6 to its knees - I'm looking at you, androidcentral and phandroid.
Still, not much will change for me, personally, unless my city decides to build it's own fiber network to compete with Verizon DSL and TWC.
We're just a little too far away to hear the thump of the bass.
You'll go through the cap on your family plan pretty quick at that rate.
I'm guessing this only works if (a) the phone has a SIM card in it and (b) the phone is turned on?
Because the fewer people that stumble upon evidence of alien visitation, the easier it is to cover it up.
Because, of course, we wouldn't jeopardize our lucrative SMB and Enterprise business by pulling this shit on them.
<sigh> ... Would you like fries with that?
If supporting the NSA helps prevent those pesky, uncomfortable questions about his family's close ties with the Saudi royal family from being asked, what's the problem?
Wouldn't it be somewhat more practical to dress them in bright blue or lime green shirts - you know, something that would stand out against the background rather than blend in with it - in case they collapse when outside it will be easier to spot them.
Thanks, Reg, that really made my day.
Beyonce deserves that gTLD more than he does.
Were they airbrushed out?
This is the mp3 player Zune should have been. I can listen to my tunes, watch videos and surf the web. Oh, and it makes phones calls, too!
Satisfied 520 user here.
Showed up on Netflix so got to watch it for free, basically.
Not all that good but not as awful as I was expecting, either - typical Rogen/Franco fare, with Franco coming off best, as usual, and certainly better than Pineapple Express.
Oh, god, not another one?! Well, third time's the charm, hopefully.
I thought they made cars.
Grim Fandango was the only Lucas Arts game I ever played, must have come in towards their end. I played a ton of Sierra adventures though.
Hulu requires Flash! You want me to miss my shows?!
Tired of all these exploit stories, I went ahead and uninstalled Flash, only to discover Hulu needed it. So I downloaded and installed it again, through IE, and Hulu worked again *in IE*. But it didn't work on Firefox (and neither of the 2 Flash Player add-ons worked, either) so I had to download and install it again, through Firefox, to get it to work on that, too. Very strange.
You said there was a funny cat picture but there wasn't. Bastards!
Well, people can ask. Doesn't mean they'll get it.
Brokeback buddy, perhaps? Weak sister? Gunsel? Catamite? Do tell.
Well, highest prices, slowest speeds and worst service in the industrialized world would certainly qualify as an unqualified success from the telco's point of view.
And can I go from 32-bit to 64?
Doesn't the danger usually involve having Remote Administration enabled?
So, UFOs *are* real, one did crash at Roswell in '47 where we recovered alien bodies and captured a live one? Woot!
(Sorry, been trapped in the strange neighborhood at youtube for a few days.)
@ Doug S
Possible misunderstanding on my part, then, as the article seemed to indicate the FIOS application as the culprit. I was going on the assumption that all subscribers had the app installed but, thinking back to when I first got DSL, they tried to get me to install some desktop app that, as it wasn't required for the connection to work, I quickly uninstalled. I guess it's the same with FIOS.
Good thing they stopped the FIOS roll-out years ago or a lot more people would've been affected.
But, wait, does that mean there are *only* 5 million people connected to FIOS (out of ~115 million households)? If that's what Verizon means by claiming they "compete" against cable, I don't think cable has much to worry over.
I guess all those wackos were right, after all.
So, aliens didn't quickly decommission it before it could start transmitting, thus providing evidence of their existence?
Senator Feinstein or the CIA?
Wow, that's a tough one.
And succeeding in giving us the slowest speeds at the highest prices with the worst service in the industrialized world.
But don't you think, when they steam open the envelope and find only a blank piece of paper inside, they'll get suspicious?
O less (eye) filling?
plenty of compettion unless sanctions prohibit it:
In this instance, I would say that is probably not the case, as that would imply they believe this story they're putting out. Based on the information available, however, that story would appear to be an outright and deliberate fabrication. Since we can't prove they're lying, they're free to insist it's the gospel truth.
Better be careful, then, when using that same laptop to view pr0n.
I could never see what he saw in Heath Ledger.
They also said they weren't spying on us willy-nilly and they didn't torture anyone.
Good thing the hackers posted everything online, then. Sony can just download it all from the TOR sites. Might take a while to get it all sorted and re-structured, though.
The Z3 Compact snagged 2% of the Xmas activations?! Sony must be pissing themselves with joy.
Given their experience since the Snowden leaks began, they should be quite used to that by now.
Well, *had* a field day with a ring-fenced Archer, until sharing a universe this season with the inferior Flash dragged it down, down, down.
