Dope story blood!
This is clearly an INCREDIBLY serious matter! Frivolity will not be tolerated. Especially not M$ related frivolity....
Reminds me (again) of the Fry and Laurie sketch where a bin bag of plastic forks is emptied onto the table in a restaurant when the diner asks for new cuttlery. "But this is all crap!" they complain. "Yes", replies the waiter, "but look at the choice!"
Bollocks. It's easy to not sympathise with him. He's a politician who can't handle awkward questions, and as such totally unsuited for the role he's going for.
Well, you'd want the most
popular targetted browser on your intranet, wouldn't you?
How about you direct that anger at the people setting the policy rather than the minimum wage employee manning the till?
I think Halifax phone banking is great. The trick is not answering when they ask you to say what you want. Dial the phone banking no. (03457 20 30 40), key in your account code, sort code and the 2 digits they ask for from your pin, then press *0. Wait till it starts to say something, press *0, wait again, last *0 then all you'll hear is a phone ringing till they answer. Most they've kept me waiting is about 3 minutes but normally it's less than a minute. And the call centre's in the UK.
You've not really thought that one through, have you?
It's funded by us paying the license fee. Whether that counts as funded by government depends on how you view our democracy, I suppose....
But can i wipe it and put a PROPER linux on there?!?!
....there would be even fewer hospital beds for the sick.
Does your imagination extend to imagining the reduction in lung cancer and other smoking related illnesses that would accompany the tobacco companies ceasing operation?
Forget jail. Chop off the goolies!
Such a long post just to say "no, I won't answer that question".
...would change their behavior.
Indeed, but it's equally naive to think that you can incentivise staff to care about fraud when they're worried about whether the electricity will be on when they get home.
As usual, the situation is complex and solutions like "pay more" or "care more" aren't very helpful.
The Google Planty strikes again.
No, of course it's not news. Google just enabled the play store to grant permissions for apps so I don't have to approve them at install time. Saves me a whole load of time reading permissions screens and trying to understand them.
Thanks Google, I trust you implicitly with the security of my device. If you think an app should be granted some permissions on my phone then that's good enough for me!
Aww, were the nasty journalists rude about your favourite global corporation? What a bunch of bastards....
It is, but there are other uses. I'm logged in to youtube in an incognito tab so my google id doesn't follow me around all my other tabs.
(It's spelt porn, there's no need to by coy.)
...as our own installer has not offered FTP as a way to access mirrors for over ten years.
So you stopped offering it and usage of it dropped off? No shit. That's clear evidence that no one likes ftp.
No, voting for someone to change the system is unlikely to change it. If Apple were to find that their legal bullying was costing them some money, however little, that'd change their behaviour.
It's on kickstarter, not Amazon. They've funded the development of the project. That's not the same as ordering a product off the shelf.
If they don't understand the difference then who's to blame? Should we ban crowdfunding sites because some people don't understand how they work?
It's a bummer when an investment doesn't pay off. If you can't afford that risk don't take it.
The only reason i can think of is that it's not true.
Anonymous internet smart arses? At least Andrew had the balls to put a name to his opinion. AC why exactly?
Admittedly they don't have more guns than people like Americans do, but Wikipedia puts them at 11th in the world for armed residents so they're still pretty tasty. The fact they don't kill each other as much as citizens of the USA isn't because they don't have guns.....
I disagree. Users can uninstall Windows 10. Try using the internet without Google watching and see how far you get.
I've never seen a recaptcha prompt on here. Is it only for posts that are way too long for anyone to bother reading, just to piss the poster off?
Hope so, that's quality tech!!
It doesn't tell you anything about the Liberals. It tells you a lot about the electorate.
I bet she's gutted.
I'd rather deal with their problems directly than deal with the mess after they've tried to fix them.
Hmm, kind of, but would you buy a door with a lock that worked with any key, or a car that just started when someone got into it? There comes a point where you're actively encouraging people to abuse your stuff....
If your device is configured so anyone saying "OK Google" activates it then how can you complain when someone says "OK Google" and it's activated? Are you saying that people shouldn't be allowed to say "OK Google" around google stuff? It's a slippery slope if we allow Google to take control of our mouths.
Google need to roll out a voice filter so that these things respond to recognised users and not everyone within earshot. (Or just get rid of the creepy listening crap. God knows I've tried to disable it on my new android phone but it still kept fucking chiming in last time I was using it for navigation....)
...of the Chocolate Factory's salary structure to ensure compliance with federal laws on equal pay. Google respond with some bullshit tweet about equal pay?
Well I'm convinced there's nothing to investigate, it's not like Google would tell lies.
Really? You didn't do a very good job then.
Grammar nazi fail! You need the icon!!
Isn't it strange how this sort of comment gets upvoted when Linux is the host. I wonder if a simple scripting error on Windows would be commented on so favourably....
And if you were living there you'd make it clear that you disagreed with them? How long do you think you'd be able to keep that going before you were executed?
Is it that the moderators have finally become as tired of the MS bashing as the rest of us non-freetards? (paytards?) You've got to admit it's pretty fucking samey.....
>> One of the major goals with the version 4 release, said Fluin, was to avoid the breaking changes that occurred between version 1 and version 2. <<
So the Angular devs agree with you. Did you read the article?
Back off Brussels!!!
It's called prejudice.
Yeah, but I'm sure there's perfectly good reason for Google to use user agent sniffing. It's when M$ do it that it's a massive problem!
I believe the commentards prefer "Slurp". It's like they don't know what Google Analytics is.
Because how suspicious I am of my colleagues is the same as actual evidence?
But you're ok with Google?
Those who have a subscription can follow the link?
You wouldn't be able to fucking move in here for smart arses gloating.
Indeed, that is how science works. Nevertheless, before the proof is concrete it's sensible to take the theory with a pinch of salt.
It does look like a bodge though. Calling it "amending the model to fit the data" sounds better as long as you don't think about it for too long.
What, for not agreeing with you? Surely he's earned the right to have an opinion, even if it's "wrong"....
He's done more for the internet than any of the blowhards from either side pontificating here.
Yeah, fine if mummy and daddy are happy paying for the company to run for a few years. How do you build that fan base up if no-one's paying for what you produce?
