Sounds scary, having a pilot dicking around in the cockpit.

Time to ditch the Facebook login: If customers' data should be protected, why hand it over to Zuckerberg?
Give the machines arthritis
As long as the machines also have to operate meaty appendages that are using crude input devices to control the far flung units and buildings, then it might actually be a fair fight. If they get to plug straight into the game without any encumbrances then they're just poor sportsbots.

"Yesh I've been reading this since 1997 and the comments get less technical everyday. Before you type engage your brian."
Actually, comments on The Reg are among the few that (usually) get intelligent critiques instead of mere trollbait vitriol. Unless we're talking Microsoft, Apple, Google, and, oh nevermind.
Fewer choices = worse
Pretending that having fewer apps available is an OK thing reminds me of using a Mac in the 1990's, when nearly everything appeared on Windows first, and on Macs a few years later, or never. It was not enjoyable.
If WP market share remains in the single digits, the bulk of the apps, whether treasures or turds, will never get ported. For business users, the good news is MS will undoubtedly make the WP Office apps more polished than the versions for the other two platforms. Plus, there will likely be some form of emulator (maybe there is already), like BlueStacks for WP that will allow Android apps to run directly (as BlackBerry now does). Also, MS isn't going to just walk away from WP. Maybe. Then again, with all the weeping and wailing, maybe their fragile emotional states aren't to be trusted.
Tooth Fairy Law
dictates that the reward must be given to the current owner, and may only be conferred to another upon the current owner's consent. Therefore, the unnamed hadrosaur must be awarded the gold dubloon beneath its 65-million year old pillow, as well as a reasonable scattering of pixy dust, at the discretion of the court-appointed hob, yet to be determined.
Welcome the dread spawn of the Patriot Act
I feel them reading as I type (yes, I'm either that self-important, or that aware that all wires lead to an NSA server somewhere). It's akin to having a little cockroach-like buddy on my shoulder who claims he is making things cleaner, instead of more disgusting. So, yeah, the AP thing is completely similar, except not at all. Anyway, got some typing in.
