Afaik the Indians have already stated that tgey do r want our cash.
Since the NSA probably had a hand in Stuxnet isn't this a case of pot and kettle?
Ahhh I see it's ok to do it to others but not to be done unto.
Who wants to google the list to see how many of my friends I can blackmail?
We all know what happened last time someone colonised America.
I for one ... Microbee overlords etcetera
iOS doesn't talk a standard protocol. (although I'm willing to bet its something fairly close just with an apple specific header or encoding.
I think you'll find the actual purchases who give a damn about that are <1%
In other words although it matters to you it counts diddly squat for their sales.
Sorry dude you're just not that important.
Of course its true - how dare we doubt our lords and masters.
Now if only a mechanism existed that allowed free rein of thoughts and ideas across legislative boundaries - they would almost have to legislate it out of existence.
Oh wait a minute........
That doesnt address the main point both Elop and others are making us this core race is being driven not by any user need but by a poorly crafted bloated OS. It's patently obvious that out of the 4 main smartphone OSes Android is by far the most demanding on the hardware.
However I'm not sure the scientific method ever has been or ever will be applicable to these 'fear memes' indeed that maybe one of their defining characteristics.
I think it's clear to almost everyone that the science is almost totally seperate to the debate. Whether we want it to be or not.
You do realise you don't have to read it all - let alone take the time to commentard it?
No wonder they are bankrupt - 30m pissed up the wall gives a massively unsustainable price per unit for the volume sold in the Chinese market - very few people there could spend anything like $1500 on a pc. Therefore it must have been priced *much* lower and didn't sell anywhere near the volume needed to break even.
So rip off iMac - check.
Play shell game with copyright rights - check
Piss money up wall - check.
Start legal action based on shell game - check.
What a bunch of shysters Proview are/were.
You've obviously not heard of the 80/20 rule then have you?
For phones you may have a point for fondleslabs see 80/20 rule.
Dont blame Sky for some muppet at the bbc's stupidity.
There are many reasons to hate sky - no new ones need inventing.
Clits not mentioned once /pedant
Arent there already dozens if office suites for the iPad that can read and write office files. What makes this one so special?
Rule 34.6 - there's a Dilbert for it.
Institutional shareholders who refuse to take any actions with their shareholding hold the power and are primarily responsible for not curbing the comp commitees.
Presumably as they are also ran by highly compensated individuals who have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo.
2 words - Garden Leave :)
Never attribute to conspiracy what can be put down to stupidity.
Aol and others failed because the wall was obvious and their selection was much worse by comparison. Both the Android and iOS stores are already more mature, and more importantly so is the audience. Until something game changing comes along I expect the walled gardens to stay.
In fact walled gardens on the net have existed far longer than the free Internet.
Just because there is freedom on the web doesn't make it intrinsically superior to the walled gardens - as long as both meet users evolving needs.
Don't assume the free web will win just because you feel it should. The average user doesn't give a toss so long as their needs are met. The Internet just follows the same rules area the rest of our social institutions 5% lead and as long as they are content 95% follow.
There is a difference.
If you had actually bothered to read the comments you would have seen its to do with the general quality of the big India outsourcing shops - not Indians in general.
Now most people with any experience of them would agree that's self evident - only those currently work for them would disagree IMHO.
Hang on a sec can't most monitors do 3d with the right graphics card and drivers - at least for games?
Doesn't the fact that this set compromises that ability with a lousy refresh and has crap tuner mean you would be better off with a good monitor and a pc tv tuner?
Seems a bit pointless.
Normally this kinda stuff gets deleted and never admitted to.
Hopefully it will be some use to those looking to polish CM and others.
Google Good. PIM apps running inside an encrypted container.
They will be the good app calling the good server calling exchange.
Farcebook is riding an inflating bubble.
Yahoo is covered in the gunge of the previous bubble.
We're finally admitting that Yahoo is doomed and activating our golden parachute clauses whilst our share options are still useful for something more than toilet paper
Not the same as owning specific patents.
A cheap 10" tablet would provide similar functionality and much more besides, using Airdisplay or the Android equivalent.
Cant see the point.
Have 2 Bushes and the Humax HD (non-DVR) box dotted around the house.
Best image quality.
Really slow cold boot. (We use a remote control plug).
All the IP TV facilities appear as beta's on FoxSat first.
Best budget buy by a mile.
Almost instant cold boot compared to Humax.
Has a combined Freesat and Non-freesat mode. No fiddling with the settings menu to switch mode.
Downside Fugly but functional UI.
I have 2 bushes (fnarr) and the basic Foxsat HD box.
Both bushes have been as reliable as the Foxsat - no issues with any of them.
What if R'lyeh is down there?
I think you missed the invisible sarcasm tags on the original post.....
WTF? These seems to be another case of nanny statism. Unless Dixon's et al are behaving fraudulently or using pressure tactics what they are doing is perfectly fine.
Its the people who are stupid enough to buy these warantees without doing a cost-benefit analysis who have the problem.
This is just a variation on the "filling may be hot" warnings. Duh - no shit sherlock.
Until you realise that the failure of winpho means we have a choice between the malware ridden cess pool of android and the super-max lockdown of iOS.
Ok exaggeration in both cases but consumers *need* a strong third platform it will keep Apple and Google honest.
Its easy to blame the "ruling classes" isnt it than to admit your parents and grandparents as part of a democratic society have an equal responsibility for the electing of a body that passes or refuses to repeal distasteful legislation.
For the futility of judging yesterdays laws by todays standards - see my other comment.
Turning it on its head. Lets extend the sentences for all those who were sentenced before wacky jacqui reclassified cannabis from class c to class b.
An apology costs nothing - but reversing a decision made correctly inline with the law at the time is madness - whether you agree with that law or not.
This looking backward and trying to judge historic decisions in the light of todays morals (which in themselves are only transitory) is laughable and doomed to fail.
Maybe I should patent an ipad shaped device with contacts on the corner. Then it could be used in landscape or portrait.
Congratulate them after something is delivered that works. It doesnt matter what the dev methodology if the end result is crap.
What I was going to say - but quicker!
Also the population within each app store using Crittercism would have strong bearing. Eg if its good Apps on Andriod and only badly coded Fart apps on IOS.
This finally draws attention to one of the great GW confusions - when oceans get warmer the coral & reefs move - old ones die, new ones thrive. Instead of thinking of thinking of things as absolutes we need to remember its never clear cut and everything is a system in flux.
Your whining may have a point if they were links to clove technology but since they arent you don't.
Videos and pics on the iPhones have all ways been available without iTunes - check your facts before you post.
The iPhone photos folder shows up as a camera under windows.
How many followers that couple has. The fact that they were tracked says something very scarey about the amount of surveylence the Feds must be up to.
I think the Journo is getting the Kernel mixed up with the UI.
iOS and OSX use the same kernel afaik. If not the same then kissing cousins.
“The Company’s information security group was aware of the attacks shortly after the time of their occurrence
Really? Then how come senior mgt weren't aware?
I smell bullshit.
"She has a masters."
It may just be an A5 with a souped up graphics core to handle the display - just as they souped up the graphics between ipad 1 and 2.
