Tim Cooks first big mistake
He must be insane. The customer experience in PC World has always been diametrically opposed to that of Apple.

Its interesting to note that Barristers are very like salesmen in some respects - they are essentially fee & commission based - therefore their range of earning can vary considerably and also vary wildly over time. They also have huge upfront training and development costs, - its far easier to become a solictor than a barrister as solictors have a much greater chance of getting their training contract paid for.
I would say you are better off being a mediocre solictor than a mediocre barrister.
As a profession both will earn greater than average wage but not orders of magnitude bigger than an IT professional for example. The average London contract wage is probably a similar ball park to the average barrister wage.
I think Moto need to check consumer law. Afaik its not possible to revoke certain consumer rights. Manufacturer Warantee's generally exist in addition to your basic consumer rights.
Come on Moto - dozens of other handsets come without locked boot loaders - less weasel words and legalese and more support of your customers.
Unless of course you actually read the article. But hey never let facts get in the way of a blinkered comment.
One of the other options I have see proposed is a solar mirror of sufficient strength to create a jet of the objects own material to act as a thruster.
Everyone is convinced they *will* be found guilty.
Simply because truth and justice are no longer the American way ( and it's doubtful they ever were)
WinMob was a pretty decent stab at a phone OS. I had 4 handsets in a row and functionality wise it was comparable with a blackberry of the time plus it was second only to symbian in available apps.
Unfortunately MS threw all that good stuff away when it went to winpho.
Different strokes for different folks. In my experience people running raid 0 are willing to take the risks for the benefits and are well aware regular backups are mandated. I certainly am and have been running a pair of x18m's that way for 3 years.
Or perhaps they are more cost conscious and recalling corporate BB's and issuing Good onto personal iPhones and maybe allowing them to expense the data usage?
Win Mob has declined to under the radar.
Win Pho has yet to hit the radar.
I bet they are seperate categories.
I'll think you'll find that a big percentage of Good activations are actually personal handsets being used for work.
The whole point of rolling out Good is that it creates a secure wipeable container on the iphone to manage your workstuff in without compromising corporate security.
Lack of Bluetooth seems a missed opportunity as the Dect incumbents tend to charge through the nose for it.
I presume its due to BT usally being provided by the radio chip, and dect chips with BT are few and far between.
have you seen a 3DS?
Someone should tell Nintendo the 80's called and they want their industrial design back.
Seriously I think Ninty see it as an iconic style thats part of the companies unique brand statement. In reality it looks like a cheap chinese OEM import in a world full of iconic looking phones, tablets and PS Vita's.
Your post should have everything - including a creator that has a brain.
Seems a bit shortsighted given the increasing use of smartphones and the relative ease that flaws can be monetized by premium SMSes and the like.
I'll think you'll find they did come up with a new idea. unfortunately it was a shit one - clicky touchscreens.
Some laptops will be getting thinner.
Some thin laptops will be getting cheaper (and even nastier)
Also the bog standard entry level laptop that sells the most will be completely unchanged.
That is all.
Remind me how you get paid for stating the bleeding obvious again?
Of course a standard 3G dongle (with micro SD slot), adhoc networking in most major OSes and a cheap pair of cufflinks exists this functionality, but I still like them in a lottery winner kinda way.
It would have been nice to see one of the foxsat freesat boxes instead of their freeview box.
Care quote some numbers on which you based that opinion.
Ah my mistake - if you were going to make any solid claims you wouldn't be posting AC.
Bit confused. The cops applied for a warrant but were too late in fixing the tracker to the car?
That doesn't make sense unless you have to apply the tracker on a specific date. Which is madness as long as the warant has be approved the tracking should be valid.
This isn't a blow for civil rights it's just quibbling over procedure.
And how does megaupload differ from YouTube oh commentard?
Same situation lots of copyrighted content but respond to takedown notices but you don't see Eric Schmidt dragged off to court.
This stinks. Either acting as a middleman is illegal for copyright violation is illegal in which case every ISP and site that supports uploads should be shut down or it's not in which case the guy has done nothing wrong.
Whats the definition of big data in this instance? My usual interpretation is Hadoop and its relatives and offspring. But this seems more like a sciencey HPC definition.
Why was there ever any doubt that Linux could handle these loads? Its working for GooHoo and others. Its not as if there are many credible alternatives in this space, unless you count explicit HPC OSes (which Im not doing).
What an odd survey.
The author has for the inkjet business. Their printers are pretty reasonable and are a natural extension of their business. They might not be revolutionary but assuming they are even mildly profitable they are a reasonable step.
In addition we have bought 3 of their wireless photoframes and they are almost unique in the market and work brilliantly enabling the grandparents to see new photos with just an email. They are almost apple like in their ease of use.
Think the expression is twitching.
Mr Yang may think past a single quarter but that hasn't helped him stop Yahoo's gradual decline.
Sometimes you have to let go. Yahoo is bigger than him.
Or perhaps you didn't read the article properly.
This is primarily aimed at at situations where the physical network is saturated both in terms of bandwidth and physical connections. If the situation is temporary or short term why on earth would you spend huge amounts of effort reconfiguring several racks when you can create temporary wireless connections?
Physical is faster but it's not necessarily always convenient - that's the scenario this work is targeting.
A) I expect my hardware to work over a reasonable set of temperatures and environments.
B) I expect a failsoft mode - not an utter failure.
C) what are the stats for SSD heat related failures or are you just spouting cobblers off the top of your head?
Your vendor bent the truth. A warrantee or guarantee is in *addition* to your basic consumer rights not instead of.
Regardless of any warrantee they have to comply with the sale of goods act if the item becomes not fit for purpose over a reasonable period of time.
Reasonable period of time changes depending on the item but for electronic or electrical goods a year would be a minimum and courts have ruled in favour of the consumer for period over 5 years!
Know your rights or lose them.
I assume this was a uk based reader?
If so sale of goods act applies. Its not clear if the *vendor* was OCZ or someone else. A quick glance suggests OCZ dont retail direct. Therefore its the vendor you should be dealing with.
You contact the *vendor* and if they don't play ball - *as they are legally obliged to* - then a threat from trading standards or small claims court usually sorts them out.
Honestly this stuff isn't rocket science. You don't have to go to the manufacturer - your contract is with the vendor - its ALL their problem - even if the manufacturer has a direct RMA its irrelevant - I make a point of never going down this path.
Don't be fobbed off with anything else - be polite but dont hesistate to go Nuclear if you are not satisfied quickly.
If the product doesnt work you can demand a full refund. If they dont play ball it costs a tenner to lodge a small claims court request.
The NSA should be pissing your hard earned tax dollars up the wall on this project?
Unless the object is to secure Android for formal government use (even then why?) then this is a waste of time and money.
no resurrection for this then?
Sheesh. How many years since Centrino lauched and AMD still cannot achieve battery life anything like Intels. Talk about asleep at the wheel. They really are proving that they were a flash in the pan.
And also because of the RI issues mentioned. Most OS'es do 1:1 pixel mapping and a desktop in 2048x1536 would be unreadably tiny on an 13-15" screen.
Frankly that Res will be of little functional use on an ipad but be more likely to drive percieved quality rather anything qualatitive.
and all the other phone recyclers.
Given how much is at stake for ULA I wonder how at risk Spacex are from sabotage. It would only take dragon to prang the ISS to kill private commercial spaceflight dead.
Would like to think its not a risk but worse has been done for less gain.
You do actually realise that without even making an attempt to understand what patents were sold you have no idea they are silly or reasonable. You dont even what country they were filed in.
Until you do and can actually prove they are all silly ir trivial why don't you shut it?
Did you even read the article before commentarding?
As it says there is a huge difference between FRAND patent aggregators than your standard patent trolls. In fact it can be argued that licensing a pool actually helps protect you from trolls as it makes sense for the pool owner to defend it against random trolls.
But hey don't let thought get in the way of a retarded comment.
Reminds me of the classic Simpsons episode where it shows a UN debate and the Russian Ambassador stands up and shouts "The USSR will not stand for this"
Then he presses a button and Russia's and all the Eastern Europeans countries signs flip over to display USSR again.
Scarily possible with Putin in control.
There was never any suggestion that medical tricorders were usable by normal plebs in ST afaik.
Wireless finger clip or similar with small pin.
Takes pulse and blood. Wireless comms low power BT.
Either it's disposable or cartridge based.
The drop of blood goes on one or more of those labs on a chip that exist at least in prototype form.
Transmits results to med range smartphone with a diagnosis app plus links to a cloud based expert system like Watson or Siri.
Piece of piss. It could probably test that too.
All the technology already exists the problems are integration time and the expense of of the disposable bits.
The Nobel science prizes tend to be awarded 5-10 years after the work was done.
Whilst I hope not I can't help but think this thrusting magnificence is going to splatter its load over the face of Mars.
Tying up with the GCSE ICT story from yesterday I have fond memories of our IT Studies teacher showing wordwise search and replace by replacing AND with ARSE throughout a document - which was revolutionary technology for young teenage boys!
He followed that by teaching us rude variations on the 10 Hello World 20 goto 20
BBC basic program in the flashing 16 colour teletext modes the Beeb had.
Article says explosion happened 9Bn LY's away - 1/3 the age of the universe.
Article should say 2/3rds age of universe as 9/13 ~ 2/3
There are dozens of companies far more evil than MS who for all their faults make some reasonably good products particularly as we are talking about programming their IDE.
Next time you feel the need to get your pitchfork and shout "burn them" I suggest you point yourself at Armaments, Tobacco and Healthcare companies like PIP.
For all their sins of which there are many MS have rarely if at all hurt people.
In my one attempt to use it I found eclipse the most overly complex unintuitive POS its ever been my misfortune to install.
I don't see how it would add any value to ICT they'd be better off with textpad.
Why it would take 2 years to rewrite the syllabus?
Most Reg commentards could write the outline in a couple of hours and 6-8 of us the whole 2 year syllabus in a few months.
