I always new the SF genre was in trouble
when Science was changed to Speculative.
If they want to blame someone
they should be suing the punters who aren't buying microsoft/nokia et al.
about as useful as.
Re: It's looking that way in the U.S. too
But an Art History graduate is ideally suited to burger flipping, as are graduates in Medieval History, Rock Music and Law.
Re: NZ Has No TV Tax
In south africa, the public broadcaster is supported by license fees AND taxes, usually because the idiots running the broadcaster blow millions (actually its now billions) on fancy cars, high salaries and other job perks. What makes it worse is that it acts as the Department of Propaganda for the ruling regime.
All of you should shut and be thankful.
Re: Hiding behind the license...
And when someone hides behind a license in order to peddle their turds, the market should respond appropriately - no-one buys it, everyone disses it online and EA lose a shitchunk of money. Revenge is sweet, legal and free.
Here's my question...
Legitimate Music Download Service A offers a wide range of reasonably priced music to subscribers but restricted to a specific geographical area. Legitimate Music Download Service B offers the same range but at a higher price to everyone else. Why should everyone else have to pay a higher price to B for the same music offered by A. Clearly the RIAA and its friends are happy with A's model so why are they penalising the rest of the world by denying them the same access?
Re: Are you?
I think most people have learned to tune out the ads on Google. I use it all the time and can't recall a single ad I've seen or cared for.
Ad industry least innovative
I worked for a short while at a regional office of one of the big agencies (this goes back only about 4 years now) and sat in on a presentation by a web marketing guru. He asked the agency bodies attending what they thought would appeal to the youth as an online marketing strategy and some geniuses stood up and said "How about an on-line mall".
It would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad. Needless to say said agency almost went tits up a year later.
Did he say Bing?
He did say Bing, didn't he?
Watching TV through 1-way glass
so Big Brother can watch himself trying to watch me...
too much for...mega-company to exclusively own
For which we give thanks to our respective deities every day.
nothing a date with a wooden spoon can't fix.
The more MS pushes people to rent their software
The more people will realise what a stupid idea that is and move to something they can actually own.
The one feature that makes Office 2013 a sure bet
The ability to open the latest word doc format.
why not let the victims decide compensation
Hmmm, let's say 100k a pop. Now that would be more than a slap on the wrist.
Uh, no they don't
That's all that needs to be said.
Re: An NRA spokespersons said...
Maybe someone should beat a few NRA members to death with CD cases of Daikatana. That way there would at least be some validation to their claims.
Re: @JaitcH: When you die...
As long as my property continues to pay me long after its creation, who cares what happens to it after I die?
nothing left to lose
she already owes more than 200k so what's a few hundred thousand more?
Is that a helicopter I hear?
Nope. It's Steve Jobs spinning in his grave again.
Re: "Get the facts" again
i think they fired the idiot who came up with the win 8 launch party pack idea...
iMac is really just a notebook PC
without the portability.
They could photoshop Israel out of existence
And just tell their mindless followers that they destroyed Israel once and for all. It would certainly save on fuel and ammunition.
But the results can be hilarious...
because under 12s are capable of making informed decisions about technology rather than just wanting something because their friend has one or because an asshole in a clown suit tells them they need it.
As a bigamist
this could cause certain problems for me.
The irony being
that it was this type of tinpot tyranny that our great-grandfathers and grandfathers fought against in the two world wars. or were they fighting so that the profiteers and warhawks could get rich? I keep forgetting which.
Wait until the licence fees go up
as they inevitably do with microsoft. nothing is ever really "free" with them.
The only thing that camera will see
is a real expensive video camera and sound recording setup as it records the content on my tv screen for later viewing. Piracy will soon be an extreme sport.
I bet they're stinging
Yup, that 50k is really going to hit them where it hurts. It's pathetic fines like this that ensure systems are not fixed. Of course, were it, say, a million or two, and perhaps a month or six in lock up for the line manager involved, well, there would never be a chance of another similar incident ever occurring again.
I'm ranting. I am tired and in a lousy mood. Also I hate insurance companies.
still mourn the loss of Dark Forces 2
Made the mistake of leaving the CD ROM in my PC over night. Thieves broke into my house and removed said PC with disk in machine. I never finished the game and could never find another disk either.
I thought he used a .38 spl in Dr No
I could be wrong. I am getting old and its been decades since I read the book (or saw the movie for that matter)....
Re: Yes and no
It's all in the name and the perception around it. Of course, Apple should be careful lest its products end up banned in the rest of the world. Yes. America, there is a rest of the world.
Re: All that's missing
must be the same team that made the windows 7 launch party videos.
Find it hard to forgive my mother
I was 8 years old when she dragged me to see this. Scarred me for the rest of my life. I'm still scared to put my feet all the way down to the end of the bed. And don't get me started on swimming.
no mention of Zune?
make a stupid, irrelevant statement
and hide behind anonymity. You, sir, are a douche bag.
