Er, are you sure
The upshot of all this is that "3.3 per cent of deaths could be prevented if all participants had a processed meat consumption of less than 20g per day".
Are you sure, surely those deaths are simply delayed? They are going to happen at some point ;)
Re: Not for me
Me fail. Forgot space.
Not for me
-bash: cat/usr/share/calendar/calendar.lotr: No such file or directory
Er... download Error's out for me on the Safari security update
Personally cant get the safari security update. Try to download and get ... (NSURLErrorDomain error -3001.) (102). Don't know what that is, but even tried the old switch it off and back on again trick - nothing. Won't download.
Is it me or is there an increasing trend of bugs in Apple's software?
Paid version with No Ads, Please?!
Looks really good.
But... I HATE adverts in apps, and would happily pay not to see them. Any chance of a paid for version, or one with an in-app purchase to disable?
Please, please, pretty please, with sugar and sprinkles and a cherry on top.
Er, No Galaxy Nexus?!
No Galaxy Nexus. Its only probably the most directly comparable handset, with the same resolution, ICS 4.0, similar size etc. Also not too big, like I suspect the SGSIII will be (can you hold it in one hand and touch all four corners of the screen?). It will also get Android updates much quicker. I suspect battery life is on par too.
What's with the apple bashing?
My understanding is that whilst in general ethics are not at the top of most production line agenda's, Apple actually are doing much to be open and honest, and to improve things... yet they are the one's getting the bashing.
On average in China there are 220 suicides per million workers. Foxconn is only 18 per million.
In America for example there are 35 fatal work place injuries per million workers. Foxconn is only 7.
The average salary in China for production workers is $4.k. Foxconn is $6k.

I don't think Apple do enough, but they also aren't all evil too.
Requires admin confirmation
This isn't really a windows vs mac debate. Mac OS X is identifying it as an application requiring admin details and asking the admin to confirm. I'd expect Windows to do the same. That's all I expect of an OS, to flag when something is attempting to install and prompt if escalated privileges are required. It's up to the admin to asses whether its legitimate or not. Anyone infected = user error (or admin error).
No one thinks Mac's are invulnerable - certainly I don't, but they are just less prone to non-user error type malware - in my experience.
I need never be reminded of the horror of watching that the first time. Even worse, one man one jar.
Do you mean apple?
Yes they fixed the clock error in the most recent release. They also fixed the random error with people who were > 77 years old bug with the birthday calendar.
Are you serious?!??!??1
Cop should lose his job. These things are only meant to be used in times when there is a danger to the public or the officer. They are meant to be used as equivalent to when someone would otherwise be shot as the almost non-leathal alternative.
This is clearly not an appropriate situation to use a taser. He was naked. Not going to be any concealed weapons. No real danger or threatening behaviour to the cop. I reckon the fat cop realised that the guy was gonna out run him and couldn't be arsed chasing him anymore.
Shame on you sir. Shame on you.
Not quite irreversible
I downgraded a friends iPhone 3G yesterday from iOS4 to 3.1.3. It wasn't that hard really. His wasn't jailbroken or anything, just a bog standard 3G running very slowly on iOS4.
Tutorials all over the place for this online.
Worked for me too, and probably many others too
Actually, worked fine for me too. When things go wrong for someone they scream and shout, and rightly so. But if it works fine they often just go on their merry way. They don't post on forums saying "Just thought I'd let everyone know that X worked as expected". So, just because a number of people complain doesn't mean it's necessary a disaster.
Out of interest, is this happening on Macs & Windows machines or just Windows machines ;)
And on Safari...
Just thought I would give it a go on my mac and noticed that my mac mail gets opened?! Seems like everyone's browser is pants!
Will Exchange/ActiveSync be available as an upgrade
I am wondering whether early adopters, such as myself (please don't beat me up about it as it suits my needs perfectly), will be able to get ActiveSync support as an update to existing hardware?
@ Chad H.
Finally someone who gets it. You are spot on. Regardless of whether climate change is actually happening or not (or somewhere in between here and doomsday), it doesn't matter.
The thought of climate change is starting to result in actions which are positive for mankind, such as investment into renewable energy sources etc. If doomsday does or doesn't happen, at least we are doing something positive about it.
That said, I remember reading somewhere that every time mankind tries to keep a complex and volatile system static, they end up messing things up*. My worry is that our actions now trying to prevent climate change may knock it into the alternative direction that could ultimately lead to our demise (ice age anyone?).
For me, if out of all this we can create a safe renewable energy source, then I don't care about the media, the government, scientists or whoever profiting from the hysteria.
*I think it was to do with trees in an area of the states that native americans used to manage where "management" ended up doing more harm than good, but I can't for the life of me remember the whole story in enough detail to make it meaningful.
Linux Penguin - what are the odds of them being the dominant species on earth?
Why on earth does a school need to take the finger prints of children at all. It can't be the anti-terrorism angle, surely? Anyone know what their justification (excuse) is?
I don't want anyone to have a record of my or my child's finger prints. If that information ever got into the wrong hands, who knows what the implications of that could be in the future.
What a rip off
My basic Nokia allows me to sync my phone to Media Player and then use any of my tracks as a ringtone. No second charge whatsoever.
If Apple had enabled the functionality to use tunes in the library as ringtones no one would have even given it a second glance. The fact you can't is clearly a marketing ploy on Apples behalf to get more revenue from punters with too much cash on their hands.
