Cold day in hell when Apple or Google give a fuck about their users apart from what can be fleeced from them.

What's the problem?
PC Gamers use Windows. DirectX wins. I use Linux at work for all my servers, wouldn't consider Windows for a second. And I would never install Linux on the desktop. Why kill yourself for nothing? The only thing you ever want to work is WINE. And if I need Linux, why hello Virtual Machine...
Godwin's Law Fail.
Anyway, to the Directors: Pull The Other One, It Has Got Bells On.
i like the sony products i have but the company sucks big monkey balls.
TBH SAP are so desperate to cover up the total failure that is HANA that they are pushing it heavily into every deal and discounting other products when you take it. So not surprising that all their deals are featuring it now, regardless of its actual use.
ohohoh thank you for alerting me to this. I tried to get the original working via various means a while ago.
Re: Good work MS
the clever ones are already deploying linux in the cloud. And windows in the workplace, for an easy life.
Ha! Yeah they drink in there. Obviously. That's a place that will show up a lot on Grindr if you get my meaning.
Having worked with EE/Orange IT I can suggest you keep the customers and ditch the staff. Apart from the Orange guys in Bristol that actually know what they are doing. But the Orange Digital peeps? Drop 'em like a bad smell.
Oh they are now "Hiveworks". http://hiveworks.co.uk/#/ Fuck look at all those horrible crapbooks. Useless, lazy idiots. Do some work you slow ass lamers.
Recent experience has shown one thing: the markets don't know shit.
There was this Write Once Run Anywhere language... I've been using it for years... Very popular in the enterprise. Lots of work and lots of devs. Now what was it...
Oh yes. Java.
No more Groovy or Grails?! YEY!! And Gradle is a piece of shit too.
You probably went "Ooooh that's a lovely phone first" :)
I wanted a stylus. Cancer was too good for him. Someone should have come up with something slower and more painful.
fanbois hate truth
The shiteWatch saga is most amusing. They are way, way behind the competition, actually YEARS behind. There will no options, just one watch refreshed in a few years time. Android Wear is already out there with 3 or 4 really compelling devices (LG G Watch R, Moto 360, SmartWatch 3 + others) in a number of form factors, loads of new peripherals and innovative devices and more on the way. LG Watch has twice the battery specs of the shiteWatch and better hardware at half the predicted price.
If you are stuck in crapple land you are really backing the wrong horse. You have to be just totally mentally broken to consider buying crapple now.
"The laws, designed to promote the growth of private enterprise over public services"
The laws, designed to create monopolies for a few campaign contributing companies...
If they make it £1.99 a month I might consider paying. Until then Blockify + v0.8.5 for all your listening needs.
Giving crapple products to children is child abuse, hence the restriction.
Difficult to compare this to the use of Tigers and Rhino parts etc. The animals aren't killed exclusively for the ingredients - they have merely found a use for what would otherwise be thrown away.
For hunting in general I am of the opinion that you should be allowed to catch whatever you like: with your bare hands. Should put a stop to most of this.
Re: SO what to us on Android then?
You could send all your information to a Chinese company instead. Both groups will ensure its easily accessible to "security services" who have only your best wishes at heart.
"Users concerned enough with privacy would probably be..."
...well advised to turn off their computers, put on their tin foil hats and hope that time reverses itself.
best thing they ever did
See this is why i don't play it until they make it offline. I'm not interested in all this nonsense.
Re: What a revolutionary idea agile seems
Since when did the customer's "input" ever relate to what they actually needed?
Scrums are just a total waste of time. They are a way for people to show how big their dicks are by dragging everyone away from anything useful for an hour and making them listen to droning on about irrelevant things.
Re: Hmm, weird. Talks about iOS alot
Android moved ahead in Q4 2012 and has been consistently selling larger numbers for the past 2 years.
they don't farm it out as they pocket an enormous "booking fee" for all the work they didn't do.
As i predicted to much down voting!
Parents are dumb and buy wrong devices. Explains this awful tragedy.
"the canting of the antiferromagnetically aligned spins by the Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya (DM) interaction"
Ahh now its clear. Obviously.
To be an "Apple" you have to produce years of shite before stealing someone else's industry. You have to shamelessly promote substandard products sold at inflated prices. You have to lock the idiots who buy from you into the most terrible of controlled worlds.
They're just using the name to get traction with the rest of the media. Obviously working.
Re: what to do?
I don't know... I've seen many new, good, complex systems.
I'd say new complex systems developed via huge contracts with tiny numbers of bidders, handled mainly by sub-sub-sub contractors, with minimal specification and testing, and encumbered by politicised decision making, are not good.
"the AG insists his legal case is all about protecting children"
Oh well you know its all bullshit then.
Re: Wireless Charging
@Bassey The dock I use at home and it really is much better than messing with the water proof covers!
@AC That is what they claim, yes.
So as I understand it, Sony claim that the wireless charging knackers the battery. Their solution is to sell you a very expensive http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-WCR14-Wireless-Charging-Xperia-Black/dp/B00NCR50CG/ case and dock.
Annoyingly the case with the "Smart Window" is different, and their is no Copper version of the charging case. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-SCR24-Style-Cover-Xperia-Copper/dp/B00N9OC674
I ordered the cheaper case and after two months of delays and excuses I cancelled and ordered a third party one. Which actually was 20% of the price and is much, much nicer.
The arguement against renewables here seems to be that they are not a 100% solution to the problem, and so we shouldn't bother. This is just idiotic. People who say "oh but you need gas anyway for when its not windy, so lets not bother at all" are just idiots. I mean how dumb do you have to be? Fuck it, lets just burn sliced dolphins soaked in rum if that's your arguement. Or Coal. Just as bad.
Complaints about "using lots of space" are also idiotic. We have fuckloads of waste space. Most of Africa for example.
Certainly we need fusion power, and asap. Fission is a dead end. Renewables will always have a place and micro-generation is the way to go. DIVERSE micro-generation (and no, don't give me silly arguements about how this will "damage" the grid, do me a favour, you believe the energy monopoly now?) is what's needed. Solar, Wind, Pumped Storage, and the Dog in a bloody Wheel. So what if just one of these can't solve everything? Since when did the world work like that? A HYBRID solution is always best.
Re: This article needs an Editor
Examples? I can only see one.
Re: This is entirely UNreasonable
" It really is the easiest system to use"
Is that why its scammed all the time?
Re: "It also hired a high-priced lawyer to threaten the press"
IT workers are a cost to be reduced or eliminated. That's their thinking. So many times I have seen it.
And, ofc, any IT worker with any skillset in any country can do any job just as well as a real experienced professional. That's how IT works, right?
"We may not be doing all that well but we're a damn sight richer than our grandparents were. "
Bullshit. They could buy a fucking house.
"How can different industries have different rules?"
Due to the Briefmonopol laws.
That image is REAL??? I thought you were taking the piss, but no...
Re: "What rules do Google and Facebook ignore, exactly?"
Tax Law http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tag/google-tax-avoidance/
Competition Law www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/nov/21/european-parliament-break-up-of-google
Equality Law http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Reid_%28computer_scientist%29
Accessibility Law http://www.hassellinclusion.com/2013/08/web-accessibility-ruinous-obligation/
Privacy Law LIKE EVERYTHING THEY DO!!!!!
... basically if you can find a law chances are Google and Facebook broke it at some point.
Use the comparison sites but ALWAYS call direct. You'll get better deals, less hassle and less spam.
I'd quote this at them
“People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”
Re: El Reg Redesign - leave your comment here.
Aw you broke the register
"rightsholders sit around and lobby government for handouts"
Wait. This seems to be describing the entire thing backwards. Because as I see it you:
- find a series of 1s and 0s
- give stupid politicians money to make stupid laws that allow you a monopoly on those 1s and 0s
- sue anyone who dares to use that series, or anything like it, related to it, deriving from it, featuring it, etc, etc
- repeat step 2 with ill gotten gains to get stronger laws, to sue more people, ad infinitum
All "rightsholders" are living on government handouts, because that is all their "rights" are. They do not exist in nature, no lion ever sued another for its unique roar. Its total, total, total bullshit, and you can all fuck right off.
