And that's different how exactly?
Maybe slightly in execution that's all.

Just because Amazon is a newcomer doesn't make them any less toxic.
You are utterly missing the point.
Normal punters won't even stop to review those and frankly there is no reason they should have to. It's a complete user experience fail.
Reading a page of fine grained permissions is a function for geeks only.
Expect Amazon to gain ground with their tigher controlled app store if this issue becomes bigger.
The only thing that will stop this issue becoming like the current win desktop scenario is that the average life of a handset is much shorter than a desktop.
Apples control freakery makes perfect sense in this case. People swap a small degree of freedom for the comfort that the only people sucking their bank account dry are their mobile telco's.
At last something to power those frikkin shark mounted lasers!
Anyone who does that has a more flexible neck than me.
I find that combination of screens an ergonomic nightmare.
Each to their own.
The fact that the US is a bully and her son can't keep his dick in his pants aren't actually connected.
Assange is getting a fair shake by the UK legal system and will continue to get one if/when he gets carted off to Sweden.
Bear in mind if the US was really after him they could have fast tracked any Bradley Manning evidence they had and put him through the US-UK extradition treaty.
At most the US is fucking with him behind the scenes for the lulz.
Let's face it - if Asshat was as pure as he claims to be he'd stop this silly extradition fight and have donated the hundreds of thousands it's costing to Bradley Mannings defence fund.
Another doom-monger. I hates em for giving up on humanity.
You do realise its not beyond our current technology to build a fondleslab that would charge from Solar and last long enough to rebuild a basic technology base.
Besides if the end comes you'll only have to fight off the zombie hordes to get to an idle printer.
With the advent of Good for iPhone and similar solutions be BB's USP is quickly becoming eroded.
With everything work related held in a secure container most of the management issues are also contained.
Between the MOP and the Nuke I know which one I would rather have dropped on my home town....
.... as its Swindon - the Nuke.
Who thought for a second that the last part of the comment was going to be an off topic rant on the state of the UK's Navy?
Personally for that kind of price point I would go with a slower cpu, faster drive and smaller screen - the 11" MBA @ £999. I would happily pay the apple tax for a working touchpad and SSD and Mac caché.
Must confess I am a small screen portability junky though. Standard res 13.3" screens dont interest me and higher resolution 13.3 only slightly as the size trade off is not worth it.
Would certainly make the doctors new outfit easy - stained wife beaters all round.
Presumably Mars-Grunt had several distinct functions - but how many are independent?
Integration testing becomes an order of magnitude harder once you have physical barriers.
Dont you think that this would have been thought of?
How many relay sats would it need to give any one ground station total NEO and beyond comms coverage.
Im guessing somewhat less than needed for GPS for instance. I would also presume they are dedicated enough to be small and "mass" produced.
Doctors Daughter - this is about canon as it can get. Since its been a given since the first original series that he had a Granddaughter - therefore he's allowed at least one Daughter, and if linearity is any guide (and its not) at least 2.
You may quibble with the method - but I for one though it was one of the better episodes.
The wizened hobbit doctor was a bit of a stretch though..... (imho) - although I suspect that was just so the Master could keep him in a birdcage - which I thought was delightfully Masterly and cruel.
5.01 has barely been out for a day at time of writing - how many of these muppets have actually tested it long enough to prove its worse?
I've worked in FS IT for 5 years now and most of my friends are 8-10 year veterans of that world.
None of us would recognise the world described in the OP.
In my Finance IT dept there was probably 40-50% of the dept that were effectively non-IT bodies - primarily in COO and business management type functions. They spent most of their time forcing meaningless reinventions/rebrandings of development methodologies and frameworks, utter wank like CMMI, and spend years inventing service catalogues that mean nothing to the business.
Add to that lots of rounds of offshoring just as the previous offshore teams have gelled, and that's what's wrong with FS IT.
Oh and shoot any coo functionary whose not involved in statutory stuff like SOX.
We need a fusion reactor project equivalent to the Manhattan project. At today's money the spent 24bn in 4 years or 6bn a year. Afaik ITER is a 10 year project which makes it around 1.5bn a year.
If we put our minds and money to it we could have a working fusion reactor in half the time and help solve the worlds energy needs.
How hard was it for RIM to list their top 3 USP apps for the playbook and prioritise them?
Regardless of OS they should have been a priority.
Mismanagement pure and simple.
Fail RIM fail.
Did he tell Apple first?
If not he's just a publicity seeking tosser and Apple are in the right.
If he did then shame on Apple.
That I'm the first to say :
On the bounce!
Im stuck in a decision loop trying to decide if a Rama, Troy Rising, Footfall, 5th Element, Smallville or Star Wars commentardly comment is best.
Samsung cannot beat Apple with patents that they have already agreed tool license on a FRAND basis.
Both Apple and Samsung can do handbags at dawn with their nonFrand patents.
"Meanwhile we'll look up idiot savants on Google, see if any of them can count matchsticks quickly and see if we can employ them to think outside the box. We have no shame. (Obviously we'll apply for some tax rebate for hiring people with 'special abilities'.) We might have a press release about that too"
Gotta hand it to M$. Elop is the worlds highest paid shill.
The beauty is that they dont even have to pay him - Nokia are stupid enough to do that themselves.
Another emperors new clothes story.
As for other IT sectors there is very little that's truly new in the market. Big Data is just the Web 2.0 fad relabelled for analytics.
Teradata are doing nothing new, and only play in the foundations for Analytics - they are a Niche Datawarehousing player that's all. A very good niche player who can justify the premiums they charge but Niche nonetheless.
Even IBM and Oracle are doing nothing new. Both are struggling to merge their acquisitions into coherent stacks on the sales, functional and technical levels.
In summary - a bit more consolidation in the Analytixs space, and revolutionary Big Data use cases are very few and far between - even for most corporates. Big Data does not simply mean a big DWH.
Seems like the guy was doing nothing wrong under normal site naming rules.
If it offended speedo that much it would have been much simpler and cheaper to buy him then shut him down.
You're joking right? You seriously believe that chavs care for the technical solution of how their walled garden messaging works?
All they care about is that all their mates are in it - it's just another version of web 2.0 critical mass syndrome.
Declined because elop and his minions decided not to ship any products this year. It had very little to do with demand.
Looking on all the providers tariffs earlier this year the only Nokia's actually available were some POS candy bars. Very little if anything resembling even a feature phone let alone a smartphone.
Talk about doing their damnedest to destroy themselves.
Halved as proportion of total traffic surely?
Non-data has gone from 6% to 3%. Actual voice volumes are up but data is up more.
Why the fuck are you on 3 with so many different devices if the signals cack?
Are you a complete muppet?
The iPhone hasn't maxed out at 16gb for 2 1/2 years
Get with the times commentard.
But surely a courier with a set of apps capable of interoperating with standard windows apps would have had far more chance of competing in the tablet market than a 2 1/2 year late windows 8 tablet will.
A REG article on science/engineering just because.
As a physicist by education and an ex-airline employee it floats my boat that way too.
Ps whose the bike manufacturer? Not that it's likely to persuade me for Al over nicely butted and flexible Steel.
Suspension is for wimps when you have a mid-high end steel frame (and you are not a porker).
1. You had the cash to pay for it up front.
2. You trusted that the FIT was guaranteed for the next 20 years.
Since most people who have installed it were not in position 1 and didn't even consider 2. I predict a lot of angry people and a lot of bust PV installers.
Expect this to hit a lot of banks and finance houses that were backing the installers who are now not going to see their loans back.
Since most of the PV installations remain the property of the installer I wonder if the second hand value is enough to make it worth uninstalling the equipment and resell it?
In which case that might actually make it still worth option 1, as long as you include a healthy incremental mark down on the value of the FIT over the next 20 years.
Its a little weird at first but once you get used to it it's fine.
Makes a lot of sense in an auto - which is most mercs.
Ok so handbrake turns and rally cornering are out ;).
You're only too large for the small house.
Given that he has already ignored the court order keeping him off the Internet I predict he'll be complaining his cell mate is too long for him within the month.
When the iPod touch and iPhone 3 versions are out.
As I have one of each lying around that never leave the house. . Would never clutter up my current main phone with such a fugly case.
Is a modern day Puritan.
Some of us are having great fun with our pretty handcuffs.
Now which CE vendor gives the best spanking?
A few years ago when they had chipzilla running scared.
Surely this is a key impact from spinning out glofo and therefore blame is to be laid directly at AMD's door for loosing control of their own production processes.
For the same amount of money you are into budget surround all in one territory.
Only one for those who don't want lots of 5.x or 7.x wires around.
Not a great analogy - they have had to police phone lines for decades.
I'm sure the electricity co's report massively high domestic usage to catch cannabis factories.
Most utilities are required to help their elderly customers - positive policing but policing all the same.
You do know it's customary in cases like this for the judge to request both sides to come up with the settlement texts and then mix and match the sections to his satisfaction.
It's actually a very efficient use of courts (tax payers) time.
The less blinkered among us realise that office integration could be quite useful to blackberry users especially in SME's.
There's quite a difference between partnering with ms office division than with their mobile division.
But hey never let reason get in the way of a good rant eh?
Craig - "according to Wikipedia"
I stopped reading at that point.
Make a valid case for multicore - go on I dare ya.
A down vote for saying Julian Assclown? I should have gone with my first choice of Asshat.
Alternatively there's a tea partier who thinks that the US Govt leaning on the credit card co's rather than using due process and the law is acceptable. Given that I hope no one is that stupid I hoping it's for the Asshat.
Not a great fan of Julian Assclown but surely the credit card cos should be done for abuse of a monopoly. They are effectively acting as an illegal cartel at the behest of the the us government with absolutely no proven wrong doing by Wikimedia.
