giving kids crapple products is child abuse
Re: ICO ?
PCI isn't a regulation or from the FSA. Its an industry "standard" designed to allow transfer of blame away from the card providers.
so are they dropping CloudFoundry?
Didn't even notice...
..since the woeful eye-bleeding update a few months ago I don't use it anymore.
Re: "Also, it had to be sufficiently simple for the German team’s staff to use without SAP support"
HaHaHaHANA? Its must have been damn slow then. And crashed a lot. Very slow and unstable under load, and my instance is deployed by SAP, run by SAP, in SAP network. So it ain't me.
Re: you usually aren't covered
I see you have experienced insurance before.
"But what people fail to realise is that it is true of *any* safe"
This is true of all locks, alarms systems and indeed all security up to and including Quantum Keys based methods.
Have you worked with any Orange devs? They have serious issues finding arse with both hands.
The tone of this piece seems to suggest that this is somehow a good thing
Is there an anti-higgs then?
Re: Resiliency Model
This has nothing to do with SPARC
Yawn. Bayesian classification. Easy peesy lemon squeezy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayesian_inference
"distributed implementation of stochastic gradient descent" i.e. its a small cluster of boxes running a bayesian algorithm.
Yes this sucks but its the app writers fault not google, they request ludicrous permissions for their apps.
that's a "sunset" clause, not a "poison pill" clause
being switched to sky is functionally equivalent to turning it off. So ASA got it wrong here.
The glass is just a product. its not crapple exclusive.
"harder than gorilla glass" is not much of an accolade. That shit could be scratched by an angry jelly baby.
high performance is gonna need a few more cores than that. try 96 per box and you might be getting there.
Re: Here come the lawsuits.
Nah I will just call them evil fuckers who are doing this bugging solely to line their own pockets. Drives me totally mad that they get billions every year with no accountability that they then use to further enrich themselves and their friends. And then they say "Its for your own good! There are scary people!" Bullshit.
Don't learn the nubs.
Surely this is then precedent for MS to take over every single TLD that ever had a subdomain containing any trademark of theirs?
How exactly do they appoint judges over there in crazyland anyway? Raffle at church on sunday?
"you don't have a spreadsheet at home with all your DVDs and CDs"
My wife does...
"who wouldn't allow anyone to actually do anything with IT beyond what was on the desktop"
Seems very sensible frankly.
Re: Gender of the internet???
Où est la plume de ma tante?
Bet the original developer quoted them a squillion bucks for a batch mode.
You see, I would rather die than ever touch anything made by fucking crapple. So the "thou must use crapos" seems ridiculous to me. But then google make you use fucking git, which has no windows support at all, and is an atrocious pile of wank. So what do google know? Knock out barely supported free app after free app then pull out the rug after a few months when next flavour comes along.
fucking idiots the lot of them. a pox on them all.
Fools. Bargaining with the devil.
Again, to be clear:
You have absolutely no right to be paid. Just get that out of your heads. Otherwise I'm going to brute force copyright every combination and permutation of notes, letters and bloody 1s and 0s.
If you want to be paid, you work on commissioned work, on a contract, and get paid up front. Everything else is wishful thinking.
Logitech beat them to it
"Research?" Nothing original here.
"how much money do you owe them exactly ?"
Their answer to this would be, "what have you got?"
No taxman has ever had a hard time deciding you owe them money. No actual calculation is involved or required.
Where's my anti-gravity Flying Car?!?
"Google has started using his techniques"
What? They didn't sue him until his ears bled? They didn't try to suppress his work and ruin his reputation?
Lies. I cannot believe for one second that any organisation like Google would accept any form of criticism or suggestion of fallibility without firing off the full force of their lawyerbots first. Especially as they bypassed so many things designed to prevent exactly this....
The root kit thing will rankle for a while.
But i have a new Sony tablet and it is really awesome. Best one on the market right now. So they are starting to get back to doing things well.
They need to push Walkman more. They should use this brand to back up a music streaming offering that the indies would get behind. They could easily beat Google in this space if they are willing to let others make a profit too.
And I never understood why they sold Viao. "They're not a PC company" is such a silly statement. They were making really quite desirable laptops. Its so hard to buy a laptop you would actually want due to sheer number of macscum ruining everything, willing to pay through the nose for poor sample hardware with massive return rates running second rate software. Surely there is scope there. Simple education would be enough.
Need to out of jurisdiction
C'mon google. Lets have some orbiting data centers with ansible connections. Quick. Can't be that hard.
Inherent risk of your chosen profession it would seem. Perhaps you need a Nom de Plume?
"For houses the economics are pretty simple: you'll spend more renting in a lifetime than it would take to pay a mortgage, and when retirement comes around the fellow with the paid of mortgage has a house to live in rent-free. "
Renting is 85% of the cost of buying. Recent research has shown this.
someone do this to github please
Played computer games virtually everyday for the past 25 years. And I've only ever installed one game on any mobile device.
Lemmings. On my Motorola A1000. You know, the one Crapple copied to make the shitephone? Back when the P900 dev community hadn't been reemed out by the fuckers. Mmm I miss my stylus.
And I will never pay for application or game on a mobile device. And I would certainly never be so utterly dumb as to pay for one and then pay-to-play too.
But I guess there are many extremely stupid fools out there who can be parted from their money.
So they added a SPARC chip in effect. Hmm.
"The big labels offer independents a much lower royalty rate, among other things."
Is that exactly what you meant? Did you not mean that Google was offering a lower rate to independents than majors?
Re: I can confirm...
You are right, I meant Mb/s.
I can confirm...
...as a paying customer that Sky broadband is lousy. This is an apt description. When I first got their service I was receiving only 0.5 MB/s. I'll repeat that.
That's equivalent of what I was getting from NTL in 2000.
So I phoned up and had a massive go at them. As you do. With lots of sarcasm thrown in. And the next day my routing changed. And suddenly 10 MB/s.
But the problem was they blamed me soooo much. It must be MY fault that its slow. And they have a dumbass script:
Them: "Oh, its the Wifi. Please connect your laptop directly to the router"
Me: "I'm not using a laptop and I'm already using a network cable"
"Is the WiFi on the laptop broken?"
Them: "Please close all applications and run the speed test"
Me: "Ok all closed apart from the speed test window in chrome and i get 0.1 MB/s at the moment."
"Please close chrome too"
"But its running the test?"
"Please close chrome and run the test again"
Re: At least Google no longer tries to declare itself exempt
"it uses its international structure to mostly ignore law"
Most laws are made by the stupid for the rich. So please, ignore them, it can only benefit all of us.
None of this is about US arrogance, or Google doing evil, or any other partisan position.
The point is the ruling is just damn, damn, damn stupid. I mean really, completely idiotic. Its the sort of perverse and illogical decision produced the heavily lobbied and badly misinformed. It is simply legal revisionism, and will only benefit criminals.
For those of you too young to remember, there was no internet before Google. Seriously. You remember trying to actually FIND anything pre-google? No chance. If you didn't know the web page address then you simply weren't going there. Do you remember the dumb ass programs you had to use to "submit" your site to huge lists of "search engines" with pages and pages of faked up meta data (this used to be SEO you know...)?
So Google gave us a working internet. Then they gave us working email with storage greater than 2MB. And then when fucking crapple stole, ahem, "invented", the mobile phone they gave us an operating system that meant we could stick our finger up at the fucking fanbois.
And I've never paid them a penny. And I have a famous person "masking" me in search results. There is no downside. APART from these idiotic "non-technicals" (and that is the most damning insult there is IMO) trying to fuck with things that don't concern them.
Frankly if the Germans don't like it they can block Google. And see how far that gets them.
You all heard her name and spent time googling her etc. So seems like achieved exactly what it set out to achieve. Just wish she had paid for it herself.
What absolute bullshit. 70 years? That's not helping anyone except copyright trolls.
Anyway. You all must get over this SILLY notion that you have a right to get paid. You don't. Your pictures are not worth anything. Your music is not worth anything. Your art is not worth anything. Your software is not worth anything.
If you want to get paid, you get paid by working on commission, at an agreed rate and hopefully in advance.
This just stops the price looking so inflated. Once the cash pile is doled out in dividends then the price will drop. That's all the value is atm: a lot of people just staring at the bank balance and drooling. The have made some very overpriced purchases recently and smartphones in general have saturated some markets. The tablet competition is very healthy with segmentation that even they have been forced to follow. New programming languages are two a penny and do not interest big shareholders. So where can the price go really?
Say the following happened:
- They lose a big patent suit...
- They get knobbled for tax by governments under media pressure...
- They are forced to write off value of some large acquisitions...
All of these things could easily happen in the short term and even all at the same time. Of course, the same could happen to Google. Or Samsung. I think Apple are most vulnerable though. They have built a market on 'cool'. And that tarnishes. Its already happening imo.
The man made Git. Therefore I would propose all sorts of things for him that would not be allowed under Malicious Communications. He has ruined everything.
