Re: Law is a mystery to me
It should cut both ways - if business are people as well they should also be subject to criminal prosecution. Shareholders to electric chair?
few bruised egos vs the bottom line
Author is getting it waay wrong. There is damage, but not due to egos of the developers. Not many people give a toss, if their improvement to a random OSS project, ever ends up int the original, as long as Amazon comes up with a paycheck.
Things that actually matter to Amazon as a business are:
1) Amazon would have to maintain their patches to OSS pieces and apply/test these every time they decide to update to a new version of any given piece. Add in the integration of all these pieces, and soon we're talking real money here.
2) Amazon changes will not get a major OSS benefit - more eyballs on the code - what could possibly go wrong? *cough* Oauth *cough*
Wow, gamers on YouTube really love the Xbox One. It's like they were paid to say that (Hint: they are)
There is one and only trustworthy review site left in the whole internet - www.videogamessuck.com
How would one know if the staff in question isn't involved with publisher agreements? Only one way to found out - ask them. You make it sound like they were subjected to torture or something...
Any details on what grounds did they find the candidates unsuitable? Not commited enough to the idea of Pax Europe? Not pink/brown/green enough?
I'll just leave this out here:
"Getting rid of murderously aggressive bulls can help with higher survival rates for the population as a whole."
bass-ackwards, it is - so, essentially they are killing off the most virile member of the species so the weaker ones could survive, subverting the evolution..

glaring error in the article

Re: No expandable storage
32gb is pure lunacy - one was actually entertaining a thought of upgrading one's N9 to a new Nokrosoft phone, but 32gb is not nearly enough for music/photos/videos/thumbdrive replacement etc. You are not using your phone for photos exclusively - so please spare us from the pic size calculations - should you DO use your phone for pics only - STFU and get yerself a camera:D
Where can I pick mine up
Good job. Where can I pick up mine with full bluetooth interface?
Re: Ma ütlen, ma ütlen, ma ütlen ...
Suggestion to Indonesia
Step 1 - Permanently exclude anyone, who actually uses the word "cyber", from this project or anything IT-related.
Fee for this piece of advice is a small one-off payment of 1M squid - it will save you much more in the long run:D
Upvote for having your textbook at hand and taking notes when it mattered:)
Anyone stupid enough to use ISP mailbox desevers everything coming to them - c'mon - why'd anyone lock their e-mail to an account that they'll lose access to once they change the provider?
Re: "...dedicated six months of his life..."
...dedicated six months of his life - while getting paid...
Corrected that for you.
So, the thing is not even released yet, but it's already inferior to my current PC. Decline!
Re: Ah yes, Alibaba...
To be fair - both of these frames are most likely made on the same production line - expensive one on the day shift, the other one on the night shift:)
Good. Meaningful whitespace is just plain wrong:)
Comes with a FREE! shock-collar
Device will come with a shock-collar (free installation) - jolts will be administered if the FOV of the device is interfered in any way.
Re: Thanks Larry...
Change your bank.
Sweden can offer assurances
1) Swedish court can allow or disallow extraditions
2) All extraditions are confirmed by Swedish current regime. Regime has a final say if the extradition should proceed. Regime cannot order extradition disallowed by the court.
3) Swedish regime can use a legal option of "temporary surrender" where subject can be extradited without the courts.
So, it's perfectly legal and possible for Swedish regime to guarantee that Assange does not get sent to US.
This is old news
Java has been disabled on all my boxes for years now.
Re: Get him out!
This is untrue. Courts can agree or block extradition. Government has a final say if the extradition should be allowed. Swedish government can allow/disallow extradition, they can't order one against court decision. So it's perfectly legal for the Swedish regime to offer these assurances.
Re: Security checks and diplomatic bags
Can't they write something on Assange's skin and stamp him with ambassadors official seal, making him a diplomatic document:)
@fixed that for you
Rival phone makers including Nokia, who came up with its own nano-SIM design, thwarted Apple's nefarious plan to patent its nano-SIM blueprint and claim royalties from everyone using the standard by successfully lobbying ETSI to set up an official standard for the nano-SIM.
Re: TALKING ABOUT information in "an intelligible form" ...
Have you considered that mandate has already been issued? Just not the way you wanted it;)
Why stop there?
They could use the poll feature for actual voting.
People living in glass houses should not throw stones..
VM has lots of issues on its own - one of the most galling ones is selling more broadband connections than they can physically service - they classify the issue as "Oversubscription" fault(sic!) with so-called "fix" time that could take months.
Sheriff of Nottingham
Could the sheriff of Nottingham please elaborate on the "confusing an unhelpful" nature of the data? Would there be evidence unexplained write-offs and details or sweetheart deals? Would people be confused why the hell did they elect anybody currently in the council? Do they mean that released numbers would be unhelpful because good people of Nottingham find doing sums difficult and would only get a headache?
EPEAT tests are not realistic. Let's face it - these laptops will be eventually disassembled by the slave children from the 3rd world, whose deft and experienced fingers won't have any problems removing the said battery.
Seriously? I am using it daily and it's a generation ahead of iOS, android or any version of WP.
Statements by people without a clue are even more insulting, so this is not an excuse - it only makes things worse.
Re: The problem with Fondleslabs (of all types) is
- No copies of norton etc
Surely, this is not a problem? Last "Norton" that was actually useful was "Norton Commander", everything else after that has been a steaming pile of shit.
Li-Ion is so last century
Now, where can I get my hands on a beta-decay battery for my phone?
Re: Presumably they mean the mobile wallet
So it seems that google wallet = give your money away to the thieves. Was planning to try it but I guess they have still miles to go before they can be taken seriously.
Ok, where do I get my hands on one? Also, has Apple sued them over the i<Device> moniker already?

My fellow countrymen, who keep claiming that Estonia is a Nordic country, always crack me up. It's Eastern Europe - just face it:)
Re: Let's have screen resolution become a talking point, please
Totally agree - resolutions started getting worse when the HD was introduced for TV-s. Suddenly it was acceptable to release monitors with crappy HD specs and shopping for a decent monitor became a real pain.
PC, xbox and playstation - graphics quality will be from the 90-s then, I presume. They never learn - develop a proper PC version first, then produce the lower quality version for the great unwashed.
looks plasticky. who'd ever want one?
You're looking at it the wrong way
Anything that registers/blocks the xxx domain in order to prevent it from being used and NOT offering xxx services should automatically lose a case against anyone who wants to provide smut on that domain - this is what the domain is for, after all.
Wake me up when the next Meego device is released. No need to hurry - I am happy with my N9, but I would like a new one at some point.
Re: the eleventh commandment
matching bullets to the gun
Matching can be done at the time the bullet is loaded into the breech - just overwrite the identificator with the one assigned to the gun at the moment - this could be set at the factory or randomly generated for each shot. There's even no need for wireless connection - simple I2C or 1-wire contact point would suffice.
Mars mission success/failure information - data is up to date until 2007.
I have a black N9 and most of the iPhone users I know have admitted that it's better:) Only thing that is worse right now is a smaller set of available apps. Maps, Angry birds, Skype, vpn, ssh and all the important stuff works though, so I am not really bothered about missing out on fart apps:)
Nothing wrong with experts-exchange being blocked by a smut-filter. You'd have to block it yourself otherwise.
