Re: It's not that there are no new ideas under the sun
I wonder what lots of new things could be done with a pc that you have thought of that they haven't? I really wonder what innovations there are that you speak of? You are full of bullshit. The tablet computing device came from Microsoft 10 years before the iPad, and we have the Kinect, why would they stifle innovation? They have a huge investment in their software, do BMW also stifle innovation by making great cars too? For any one flaw you point out in windows i could find at least 10 in some other piece of software. The Microsoft ate my homework argument is dead buddy, you sound sad.
Yep, I used to install winamp almost before any other software on any new pc. Now it's kind of obsolete, I don't want to manage mp3s and disks, Spotify does the trick for me. Hats off to them for giving it a clean send off and retiring it: winamp was legendary. Whip the llamas ass for the last time.
But on a side note I think the pc days are about to make a comeback with those new consoles providing the catalyst and tablets do not cut it with me. Just bought me a new gaming rig instead since the games are cheaper, more varied, and the 9800 graphics card rocks!
Once the NSA have scaled their ability to handle a whole populations always on data plans this problem will go away. The operators will get the green light, unlimited plans will be handed out / injected at birth, and you can then be tracked doing everything everywhere all of the time.

Re: Many unanswered questions on Surface 2
You sir, are IMHO, a nob'ed
I'm buying one
Sick to death of Ipad now. How many more candy shops, face warps and finger paint programs can the world suffer?
In fact I'm even ordering a new pc as well. It's come full circle. Playtime is over.
All queries of lawfully collected data must be conducted for a foreign intelligence purpose, BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE WHERE WE COLLECT IT UNLAWFULLY" it said. "We know there is a false perception out there that NSA listens to the phone calls and reads the email of everyday Americans BUT WE DON'T BECAUSE WE OUTSOURCE THAT FUNCTION OR PROGRAM COMPUTERS TO DO IT INSTEAD) , aiming to unlawfully monitor or profile US citizens. It's just not the case BECAUSE THE CASE IS MUCH BIGGER THAT SO WHAT I SAID is just not the case. .
Re: Not such a good deal
I suppose it could pay $82 million for its own private area on the NASA strip. Naaaah!
Yep, that was not a decent deal but then hats off to Google, if you don't need to pay more then why should you?
I do hope Government negotiators salaries are as correspondingly low grade as the deals they manage to pull off on behalf of the taxpayer. One should imagine if they put their combined negotiating powers to the test they might just make minimum wage.
Well i think it could be called
Champagne #B5A585 Gold
To remove any ambiguity as to which colour of Champagne is being referred to.
I think it's true. Probably done in bad taste. All sort's of sh1t happens where i have worked, like wives coming in and having a go at their husbands and colleagues for cheating, someone has a sh1t in the shower at the bank, the usual ass photocopier trick, drunken wheelchair race round the office at midnight.
Writing that on a whiteboard? Hell that's easy!
... this is not news.
Who needs to eat. I am quite prepared to have my food grow in my stomach along with various other products. When i wish to "consume" i'm ready to connect to said device by bluetooth, press a1, or c2, or whatever vending machine code is programmed into it for whichever type of foods can be grown, type the pincode for my bank card to pay for it, and voila, a ready meal made in my belly without all that ridiculous chewing required.
job done. trademarks, copyrights, registrations, patent pendings all mine. woooohhahahahaWOOOOHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
i think we should ban all kids from the internet and not let them use scissors or lighters as well. for their own protection.
Re: That's terrible!
Yeah, it's not like i can't see my register form post with the following fields in
Personally, i think those at the register should know better and actually fix it for the same reason. I don't care for the irony or any of that shit since as users our privacy should be respected regardless of whether we like irony or not.
You should sort that out and fast since a vulnerability is indeed a vulnerability and same passwords do exist for many people. No doubt your apps are just as guilty, but i can;t be arsed to check for you.
Get it sorted.
Smacks of self congratulations
If it is all that then fair enough, but this does not read like an unbiased article. It rather feels somewhat "sponsored".
All companies should by law only be allowed to charge one fee for a single named service, with administration fees or any fee that is ancillary to the product you thought you were purchasing (since i'm not really in the market for administration) are added at risk of death by lethal injection to the manager who implements it.
It should not matter how much you slice it, compound it, whatever you call it, there should be only one fee + tax. That would result in the only honest pricing i can think of: it answers the single question "well how much does it fucking cost me then, eh?"
unbelievable. how many trade secrets will be copied, the whole lot will then be turned around and resold under some other name, there will be patent wars, a chinese cloud offered in america, it's unbeleivable. why waste your time on this microsoft. if china needs the cloud then let them buy it from microsoft without forcing third party companies (read gov) to operate it. its an affront to all that is good.
Re: The Rouge Republic of California
Hmmm, erm, isn't the problem that he didn't pay her money for "this crime". I think if this were a shoot for vogue or some magazine and she was being paid to get the upskirt camera shot that's fine and perfectly legal. It's the exact opposite of where you have a date and you take her out for a decent meal, a few drinks and next thing you know you've sank a few hundred dollars and lo and behold you are in a hotel making your boys proud vs sinking a hundred straight down on a ho and just getting into the action. In that scenario the first method of payment (a decent meal and a glass of wine) for sex is legal but the second method of cold hard cash (used later presumably to buy a decent meal and a bottle of vodka) is not.
Why can't we all just get along?
Way back in 96 when I worked for a bank I came out with a ui in vb that also applied real world physics to widget movements including gravity, magnetism and so on. It wasn't that hard or difficult to imagine. In fact it was fucking easy just like newton will tell you when an apple caps your skull.
The hard work was done by the scientists of yore. Writing code to encapsulate their work and applying it to a ui widget and then claiming you invented the laws of nature is shit.
Now sir Isaac really knows what a big fuck off apple feels like. He would not be pleased.
Yes times have changed
Just when they got rid of the desktop on the phone with win mob 6 et Al so the power and form factor of the latest gadgets would almost flip that thinking around and say bring the desktop (with a few slight changes such as the little Google Chrome zoom on mobile) back to the phone and not the phone to the desktop.
Seems they went arse about face.
i'm kind of hopeful that once the chinese / taiwanese accept
the US patent and copyright system that they empty their coffers of the 4 trillion us dollars they hold and pay for every single ripped off design they ever made. as for the US for coming out with such an absurd system - you get what you deserve. it's a win / win.
EU lost the plot
I don't see Google home page offering for me to install other browsers. It just says click here to install chrome.
If they'll still be eligible for duty free on the way back.
The answer is blowing in the wind
What a load of bull. Peak wind power. So for the 125 billions trees that were chopped down, that took up critical wind resource, you think 4 million windmills take up more wind? One mountain on this planet could take up more wind than all of them put together.
Let us be absolutely fucking clear here. I just wrote the following code to test if the answer is correct and voila! It is!
for(int i = 0; i < 256; i++)
if(answer == i)
Got to say as much as I hate BT I'd imagine that Google should consider that such bastions of comms probably have some pretty narly bad ass patents they can sling about. I hate Google as much as I hate BT but I love both their products. Managers are wankers.
No, we predicted it alright. Question is, how do you stop a train crash while its happening?

Re: and they want to do business with the rest of the world?!
Europe GDP 14 TRILLION DOLLARS, U. S 14 TRILLION DOLLARS, AND CHINA 5 TRILLION DOLLARS. We need them do we? Hahahaha. Don't think so buddy. Try the other way around.
By the way I live in China as an expat and the vpn embargo will probably see me leave sooner. I'm sick of the ignorance of the ruling elite here. They need to go back to common sense school. They are afraid, very afraid, and rightly so. Decisions like this will see their demise hastened and yet they feel they have so much power they could avoid it with draconian measures. History tells different stories. For instance, that new Chinese carrier, dead carrier floating if you ask me. It would be at the bottom of the sea before the western generals or Japanese generals could mutter "war".

Re: i have to use outlook.com
Wow, that's a really shit tablet. You should take it back.
When i thought the price was lower I was kind of happy to go ahead and get one, forget further evaluation, and just become an owner. But not at this pricepoint. I think microsoft lost the point. The windows thing is well cool, don't get me wrong, but the point of the tablet there is to use it like a erm, tablet. It means the average user will only need the RT style big touch app. I'm kind of getting used to that with windows 8 now. Of course the idea is that this is supposed to be some kind of stop gap, i'm sure, once they sort out the windows chrome for all other old style apps, but really really really, the only way to use that windows 7 interface is with a mouse and keyboard at this time and i don't want to pay so much more for that functionality AND a tab when either a tab or a laptop will suffice.
This kind of makes me want the RT and not the pro now. I might need to reevaluate why i need that windows 8 desktop behind it after all (except i like to develop and i doubt you'll ever see a decent touch screen version of visual studio ever). So maybe an RT with a better spec is what i'm after. How long will i have to wait!
its obvious isn't it. get the pigs to eat the horrible nosh and then they transform it into big fat porky pig sandwich. the future is to get the pig to grow an outer skin of bread and butter much like one can get a mouse to carry a human ear. i predict a pig in every home!
