Is now ink DRM.
If it's a free service I would think just have a check box "Are you in Australia [ ]" If you check it, OK, Bye.
If you lie and say you don't live in Australia, well not my fault.
This reminds be of the days of 40 bit international versions of browsers with the download page for the better US version where you swear not to give it to China or other "bad" countries. That worked great.
They had unadvertised BYOD plans, but they pushed the "free" phone. The CRTC cut max contracts to 2 years, required free phone unlocking, and split the phone payment from the service. You pay a "tab" each month for 2 years to pay for the phone, Once the 2 years is over the extra charge is gone.
" It gave too much power to those unaccountable to We The People."
So who has the power now? Comcast?
Not We The People, that's for sure.
And look what MS did to Windows 8 to try and make phones and computers look the same.
I like knocking stuff off my desk too.
I had some scammer who registered a domain that looked like ours, had an older version of our email signature, and knew a few staff names. Sent me an email "from the boss" to wire $5,000 to "a supplier".
Replied back.... Done.
Then acted stupid for a whole series of back and forth. I BCC'ed my boss, he was laughing his arse off. Some of the scammers emails ended up in our employ manual.
I think all cars have a clear data option, but on some you will never find it without a search or reading the manual. It will be something like settings -> advanced -> other -> more -> more -> data -> clear -> are you sure?
"Copyright no... trademark infringement instead.. yes."
No, I revived a notice for a 1.5k text file that happened to have a name close to a Madonna song. It's all bots and no one looks at the output.
You need higher bandwidth for Netflix not downloading 8 MB .mp3 files.
They are for people with too much money. Add the pixel book to that too.
If I was buying a phone right now I think I'd be looking at something like a Nokia 6.1 or the 6.1+ if it comes to Canada.
Is I don't have to worry about clicking on a story to find it's Andrew Orlowski trying to tell us how great it is.
Too bad about Nokia though.
Automated notice ignored. My email ignored. Squatter pointing domain to a page of ads. You can guess the rest.
Stop using the name they made up for themselves. It's not "activist investor" it's corporate raider. They are not investing, they are only after fast cash and don't care what they leave behind after they move on to the next target.
"How do these laws help the legal sex worker?"
They don't. They may even be the real target of the law and the Think of the Children only added so they can call anyone opposed to the bill a pervert.
"I always thought the Puritans left England because they were being unfairly persecuted."
No it was because they wanted to be the ones doing the persecution. You just have to look at the laws they had in the towns they setup in North America.
It is not even targeting trafficking, as it is about blocking prostitution. They just assume trafficking is a subset of prostitution. Or are they just targeting prostitution and using "think of the children" to push it through?
Because they wanted to learn how to do it better.
Computers do what you say, not what you mean.
Well they did go to Windows Mobile first, I think that's what killed them. If they had gone to something like WebOS from the start...
"My bullshit-o-meter hit the endstop"
Your lucky, mine burst into flames and fell over.
I always consider it a challenge to get them to swear at me. For the ones with Indian accents telling them how disappointed their mothers must be after all the work of raising you only to get a cheap crook, works almost every time.
Add for profit prisons. Drugs are easily the number one source of "customers" and they need to expend their jail utilization to boost profits. That's whey the GOP is so against pot legalization
"something in the media that I disagree with"
No, that's just the Trump version.
Robo calls in Chinese, I recorded one and got a friend to listen and it's a tax scam. The calling number is spoofed, very local and different every time. A black list is not going to work on that and they have been calling 2-3 times a week. I would be happy to have google kill that.
He was probably on hold waiting for permission to push the button.
They have made sure that it's all authorized and paid for in full.
GMO? Who cares about that. It's antibiotics, grown hormones, veg sprayed with liquefied pig crap "fertilizer".
Except the normal "Buy our new model" answer is more of a problem.
And marked up 1,000%
Google search also gives different results depending on what you have searched for in the past. When I entered Dave I get https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibfQX11aPmg
Could the "threat to security" be that they are not compromised? They don't come with a preinstalled backdoor for the CIA and friends?
Figuratively shitting on the employees under him was no longer enough to satisfy him.
So the US, England, and other "good" countries get to access the keys. How about China? India? Argentina? Afghanistan? Florida? Texas?
Who decides who has access?
Why would mac fans care?
And not have to deal with arse holes like Carl Icahn.
How to make millennials work. There were a bunch of them including one from Microsoft.
Seems millennials are such slackers, managers need special tools to get them to do any work.
Sure the fake "I'm calling from Microsoft" calls. But the ones selling services you can make the customer of the calling service pay. Joe's carpet cleaning and it's owner can pay if they hire an Indian call center to make calls
"Then they turn right around and start a new company based on the old one's business plan."
And the same staff, and the assets the old company sold to the new company (for $1 and consulting fees).
They have moved across the street and have a new name.
"This is purely because of the extortionate costs of dumping rubbish at the council owned tips."
Some people will not pay anything, and even if it was free some would still dump it where ever it was easy.
"Surface has helped polish Microsoft's brand, as a stylish and useful tool for creatives and entrepreneurs, for architects, engineers, and designers."
The Surface is for middle managers, the surface book is for upper management email and powerpoint.
That big pot of frogs on the stove are just getting comfortably warm about now.
Get a ride in the back of a cop car?
But when it's bankers and executives and millions are involved this will not do a thing.
I can see someone having "fun" at a best buy store.
It's not a Microsoft phone.
Just think of all the cheap windows 10 tablets with 60 GB SSDs...
Looks like someone downvoted every post.
Who was it that used to go on about how great windows phone was and how great it was to have your computer look like a phone... Used to reject my comments about how great a full screen calculator on a 24" monitor was, or mocking the latest MS attempt at a phone OS. I wonder who that was?
"stop visiting abusive websites"
So I need a driver and the site wants me to register before I can download the driver.
I have opera for that, if I need to verify my email I have an address that deletes everything at 30 days. If I don't have to verify the email address I use marketing@your domain. I'm Elvis and the auto-fill is full of junk. The phone number is from that Pizza jungle that's on the radio 50 times a day.
I don't go to a lot of effort, but if they want to make me register to download a new driver they are getting garbage.
There is no such thing. The correct name is Corporate Raider, or asset stripper.
