"Theoretical working distance with compact standard antennas: up to 20 cm (practical working distance of about 4 centimetres)"
Note: "compact standard antennas". So that is still not an answer to the question can they be read from a distance with the right gear (larger non-standard antenna) like RFID?
Assuming that your first hit is the same as my first hit - Wikipedia (not a great assumption I think, and not the most trusted source).
Dream on idiots.
It will be cracked in short order and people will be playing without needing any internet connection at all. If they are lucky a few people might buy a copy, put it on the self, and play the cracked version. But most people will just spend their money on something else.
crossbreed mongoose with adder?
Or it could be like my last job.
Boss: spec some laptops for sales.
Boss: there was an HP in todays newspaper flyer that had bigger numbers then the one you came up with and cost $50 less! I ordered a bunch of them and handed them out already just pop around and set everyone up when you have a second.
Yes, crap home units with one year depot warranty (I just love doing the Dead Parrot Skit with HP support), and loads of shit-ware.
Just one of a few...
"Apple has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Media Solutions Holdings, a company that has allegedly been producing and distributing knockoff MagSafe power adapters. The Apple patent, No. D478,310, was initially issued in 2003. The defendant sells the AC adapters, ..."
They have been doing it for some time. But to tax 3rd party products. You need to buy a chip from Apple to make your iPhone/Pod add on work.
What? What a load of crap!
The energy came from the wind. Without resonance the motion could not have reached destructive levels.
Hardly. Not even a slap with a wet noodle.
No the Volcanos are full scientology aliens, you will have to fire it into the sun.
Followed by what evidence 'fingers in ears... la la la la...'
It only came to light because there were "important" people affected. Unlike Phorm where only normal people who can be safely ignored were upset.
They don't seem to be able (or care about) fake AV and bogus pills using their payment system to rip off people.
I live in Canada so no Amazon MP3s for me. I can buy a CD from Amazon.com and they will ship it to me, but I can't buy an MP3.
A 35mm film that was shown wide screen in theatres is intended to be viewed pan and scan on 4:3 SD?
Made for TV stuff sure, don't upsample SD material and try and charge me extra for it. But I don't have a problem with a proper HD version of a classic theatrical movie.
Just don't put copy protection crap on them so I have to upgrade the software of my player ever few months just to play them ($#&@! Fox).
When the company I've used for 15 years jacked up my rate 10% (no claims...) I got a much lower price and switched. When I cancelled the old policy they called me up, and offered me a rate a little better then the new policy (magic) even though they said they could not do anything before I switched. Told then they had had their chance and to piss off. They see a loyal customer as a sucker to be ripped off, not someone who should be getting the best deal.
In Canada you pay more premiums for a 2 door car. 2 door covers a lot of the high power cars (toys) that have high costs linked to them. But it also covers cheap, low power commuter cars.
Statistics show that 2 door cars cost them more, true. Is that an indicator of what is actually going on? No, 2 or 4 doors has nothing to do with it.
As a result almost no one buys a cheap 2 door if a similar model is available with 4. because it will cost a lot more in the long run.
And statistics don't tell you much about an individual. I'm male, single, and have never had an accident in 32 years of driving. A close relative of about the same age is female, married, and has written off 3 cars (and a tree, a light pole, and another car) even though their so wonderful statistics say she should be a lower risk.
Who said anything about that? If someone passed their test via the accompanied driving scheme they get a discount, male or female. If the female didn't take the extra training, and the male did then the male would pay less. Don't accuse others of using a straw man argument and turn around and do it yourself.
Is still US owned. They would have to outsource to a EU owned company.
Sounds more like someone at Fox just posted their wet dream.
If it had been a hack I expect it would be more like...
Sarah Palin died after choking on a weiner.
You talk about links, but why are the links there? During prohibition in the US there was a link between gangsters and booze. Booze has it's problems but gangsters are far worse. There is a link between drug gangs and prostitution as I'm sure you would agree. There is no natural link, between any of these things other then money.
If you try and ban something the people who are willing to break the law, or who are already breaking other laws will take over if there is money to be made. As the US found with prohibition it's better to regulate and try and reduce problems then to ban stuff.
Some years ago there was an anti porn group handing out "information" that was saying that violent criminals in jail use more porn then the general population, proof that porn caused violent crime.
Thanks to a story in that days paper I pointed out that smoking in prison (before they banned it) was much higher then the general population, around 2.5 times greater then the difference they were reporting for porn use. So by their logic smoking must be causing all the violent crime...
But that was just silly, no one thinks smoking causes violent crime... but it's obvious that porn is bad.
Don't forget the pony while your making wishes.
They also had the line of guys whacking themselves in the head with boards.
"but not using microSD – which is a shame as it is probably the additional case/antenna that put them off, rather than the cards themselves."
Or they bought a phone with an SD slot so they could use it for storage, not a Visa chip.
"Providing American businesses with incentives to invest at home"
No it will provide MORE incentive to invest outside so you can get more tax free profit.
But it's on youtube... http://youtu.be/7itFRiTk0Y0
I'll take a bit of pee over dead bird tea.
More like a duck. Watching one try to run to catch a bus is always good for a laugh.
So they can compete with Flash ads on other systems...
me- Why are you telling me about your dick?
them- What? Long silence followed by click.
Setup new digital TV, then give mobile phones spectrum that will interfere with it.
Is there any one at the wheel?
The term "hacking tools" needs to be well defined (it will not be I expect). You would not want to ban hammers or baseball bats just because they can and have been used as weapons. The same can be said of some computer tools, they can be used by both white and black hats.
The same people Apple thought would be confused by the iPood shovel.
"Physical goods have the problem of portability and distributability"
If your talking about "content" there is an artificial problem created by the content companies. I can buy a book, CD or DVD from amazon Japan and they will ship it to me in Canada (and I have). But I can't buy an MP3 from Amazon US. I'm sure the icloud is the same, it would only sync stuff that's available from itunes Canada. I'd be SOL for most of the import CDs I own (if I had a newer idevice then my 2G ipod touch).
And about 99 million of them are people tagging their "friends" names to "other" things like the back end of a horse for example.
It was reported on the radio Tuesday morning, followed by a retraction a few hours later.
"governments are the only legitimate representatives"
Governments? I only remember voting for one, and even then they seem to be more interested in representing corporations then me. Are we to remove everything someone dose not like?
The zoom and pan is much better then before.
Silly Apple... Opera contains adult content... bla bla bla.
So that's sorted then, no way anyone can find another IP address to attack from.
Is that the place you go to get a dent removed from you auto fender? or The Body Shop, the store that sells stinky stuff?
The Body Shop has a trademark that applies to stores selling stinky stuff (no bodies), but not to the generic term used by places that fix car bodies (www.arborbodyshop.com for example).
The customer (sucker) list is likely worth more then the actual product. They now have a list of 60,000 companies who will buy crap.
How about the BSA members produce some low-cost software that is worth buying, how is this the "govenments" job?
The devil made me do it.
The dog ate my rule book, and I think the cat is up to something too.
Here in Toronto I could see the suckers lined up across the street from my office. They stood outside the store for hours to buy their new toy. It didn't even sell out, I could have walked over after work and bought one if I wanted. Even if it did sell out, big deal wait a couple of days till they get more.
If you fall for the media hype and line up you ARE a sucker!
No the people who will buy it will just park diagonally across two handicap spots.
I expect 90% of the people who do buy a 3D TV will only be doing so because it came "free" with the model they wanted. 9% will be gamers. Almost no one is going to go out and buy a new TV just to have 3D TV.
No kidding. Who is going to opt-in to be tracked and pillaged?
The only way their model works is to track everyone while pretending to offer some opt-out system that...
a. doesn't work.
b. is stored in a locked filing cabinet in a disused lavatory behind a door that said "Beware of the tiger"
c. if you figure out how to opt-out, will opt you in again the first time you miss a hidden check box
"Also, if Microsoft's "exorbitant licensing fees" have a "highly detrimental anticompetitive effect" on the market, as Barnes & Noble asserts, why are HTC and Amazon – which, as reported in their filing, have licensing agreements with Microsoft – doing so well in their respective smartphone and e-reader markets?"
You already answered your own question.
"These types of disputes tend to be settled in corporate conference rooms, with chunks of change changing hands."
The first few get it cheap, then they use the list of people who paid as proof that their claim must be good so you better pay too.
The land where no patent is too crap to win.
