Poor, poor Apple ...
not a promising start for their new year.
All that bad PR for Apple and all that free PR for Samsung. Proves bullying doesn't pay.
What's that spinning noise coming from Job's coffin?

Joe Biden is potentially running for president and this means he needs money.
He is already in the pocket of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), so undoubtedly there will be conditional agreements for support being discussed.
As for cutting communications inks to Antigua and Barbuda, the US will likely run into the ITU who don't really agree to that sort of thing. Cuba's connections for years were routed through a sea cable to Miami where most everyone could get connected to Cuba.
Smart Canadians set up 'Call Cuba' businesses whereby American could call into Canada and get connected to Cuba, beating the stupid ban.
Cuba is also linked to South American networks through cables and can always fall back on satellite links.
Up yours, USA.
With the rip-off voice charges Canadian cellco's sock you with, it's hardly surprising.
I've now turned my voice call ringer and vibrator off so I can choose to answer SMS/text in my own time at my convenience. My cellco 'managed cell system', in VietNam, sends me a SMS message every time a voice call is not answered,
I haven't even bothered to stick a SIM in my new Samsung Note 2 as there are so many free WiFi Hotspots in VietNam it makes cell service redundant.
publishing full details of the documents used to demand the information unless explicitly denied by law or a judge.
And Google can help by by deleting all records of a document when it is deleted by a user.
My employer owns it's own mail server and all records are deleted two days after it has been read.
that your typical Brit lager lout can't answer the questions.
Several different tests have proved that Americans don't know how many states there are or what they names are. (50 states but most people forget about a whole bunch of other acquisitions, such as Puerto Rico, and thirteen others. Canada is not a US state, despite what some Americans think)
In Canada many Canadians could not answer the question: How many provinces and territories are there in Canada. (10 provinces and 3 territories)(Northwest Territories, Nunavut & Yukon)(Provinces have the right to use Constitutional Powers on their own, whilst Territories exercise power at the discretion of the Federal government.)
Can you imagine the UK even thinking about this? Mad May would never condone this.
Instead they are focussed on the removal of all. Just think of the technological advances that could be achieved by replicating the proposed US efforts in this regard.
Got that right!
This ill-feeling towards things American even affects backpackers safety with people really upset even attacking US citizens and corporations.
Perhaps if the US pulled it's horns in, stopped droning people and acted positively like a global citizen should, the US profile would reduce along with attacks.
Operating torture centres like Guantanamo should doesn't endear the US to anyone, nor does illegal rendition, or demanding the production of people to answer charges in the US rather than in the country in which the 'crime' was committed.
These bastards have even ordered Canadians to be removed from direct Canada <> Canada flights, flights that never landed at a US airport. Why does it need ALL the flight manifests for ALL flights from Bangkok, even for flights terminating in the region?
Why does it need to track money movements, internationally, of all people. If money travels from the UK to Greece or Thailand, what the hell business is it of the US? All the res systems that have computers in the US are on-line, in real time as are credit card transactions and hotel reservations - world-wide.
Why does the US need military bases in the UK, or anywhere in Europe? There are literally thousands of mini-bases in numerous countries that aren't well known.
Their DEA and FBI types swagger around guest countries, advertising their presence to all and sundry, seemingly ignoring the niceties of diplomacy. The Australian national police also have offices in many Asian countries but they show respect to their host countries maintaining a low, non-disruptive profile.
Why is the new US Embassy in London so large? The number of real diplomats are few in number but the security related people are massive. And Britain is a friendly country?
Obama shed tears for children killed in December, yet he routinely authorises attacks on children, women and men who have absolutely no links to this phantom war on terrorism. These were crocodile tears, IMO. His idea of 'colloquial damage' can be measured in miles/kilometres.
So when the US stops doing the World Cop stunt, lowers it's profile and stops saying it is the best perhaps they will suffer fewer attacks. And be more popular.
"battery, occupied burglary and resisting without violence": Assault, breaking in to a home and trying to escape without hitting a cop.
The owner/shooter is typical of US gun owners I know - they have the goods but not the skills.
"Mrs Land whipped out a .38 and fired three shots" implies she was carrying on her person - and a totally useless shot.
And Mr Land grabbed a 12-gauge (bore) shotgun - obviously he didn't care for either his furniture or the perpetrator. Guess people are a little more careful murdering people under the Stand Your Ground law since some people have been incarcerated after claiming that defence following the murder of Trevon.
That fire, in your link, was caused by a high end entertainment system that had been added well after initial construction.
If I recall, the equipment was connected to a main bus without the benefit of a circuit breaker, something they teach in Basic Electricity 101.
Ended Swissair and the smaller version is called Swiss.
I have four 27 inch screens on my desk (at least on a bracket on my desk) and if anyone touches them, to make a point, they leave smudges and fingerprints and then I have to clean the screens all over again.
Who wants PC touch screens, except MS, on my Samsung a swipe or other motion is a nothing, on a 27 incher it's more like callisthenics.
Belkin seems to be in the bag business - it has over 180 bags/covers which are banged out in China for next to nothing. I can buy the same junk for around USD$0.50-USD$1 in China, but they sell it for tens of times as much in the USA.
I bought a laptop security cable as the Kingston's were out of stock. The Belkin has a split 'hook' that operates like a pair of scissors to attach to the laptop. All it really does is cut the metal socket and enlarge the hole. Still the cable and padlock are OK and I use them on my bicycle. I bought a Kingston replacement.
As for Dlink - we all know about this junk, TP-Link is far superior and you can boost the output with software hacks!

I think they are all at it!
so where is the 'cachet' in owning one?
Ignoring the fact that the reported profit is an obscene 55%, which should be enough to put anyone off buying any product, these things are as common as dirt and little better than a Ford Model T.
Seeing your charts simply highlighted the fact,
I better understand the mentality behind one company who treats the loss of an iThingy more like the loss of a pencil than a valued piece of equipment. Even a 22-year old house guest never got too excited when she lost iThingy but it turned up a couple of days later.
war game, except this pits one nations hackers against other nations hackers.
Anonymous could be asked to join, along with those smart Russian independents.
Then we would see who really are the Top Hackers. Hell they could even make a movie of this along the lines of Top Guns. Then all these loud mouths who keep on boasting their prowess can shut up.
The prizes could be a few thousands of dollars - in the case of governments donated to a charity in the winners country - and the targets can be anything. A great target for the US would be to find a message containing purported messages about using a 'percussive' device on board an airliner. And the proof would be as they ground flights all over.
their countrymen are, at making Tesco multi-meat hamburgers with wild-boar, donkeys, pork, horse and anything else lying around on the abattoir floor.
Perhaps they will find a market in Portugal or South America. Or sub-contract the deal to Chinese entrepreneurs when the Spanish economy picks up, and with it higher wages. Or they could repackage a Chinese product and wrap it a decent quality case.
If the likes of RIM is struggling, as well as Nokia-Windows, what hell dos it have?
People don't like buying potential orphans - what can a dead cell phone be used for?
I wonder what India considers so secret? A few rustbucket diesel submarines and how to rape women and not get charged?
If you have ever worked in India you will know plagiarism exists everywhere - even, maybe more so, in government offices. Offset copies of learned books flourish.
Adopting the House Intelligence Committee is pretty pathetic, a very obvious ploy to circumvent World Trade Organisation rules, an effort led by the US government.
Don't believe me - check out the long running battle with the US over forest products that Canada won time and time again whilst the US deployed every dirty trick in the book.
So India's end run around the WTO doesn't benefit CISCO and likely Sai Systems, United Telecoms and ITI are simply knocking other companies designs.
Just think, the UK STILL sends money to India, as a developing nation. Bloody stupid.

"He told me that I could go to jail for six to twelve months for what I had just done and if I didn't agree to meet with him and sign a non-disclosure agreement he was going to call the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and have me arrested. So I signed the agreement."
I bet this useless database company - SKYTECH / OMNIVOX - wouldn't have the balls to sue him, especially in Quebec where the provincial Supreme Court has a bit of a relaxed idea of life.
He should have been advised to get ILA (independent legal advice) by the allegedly blackmailing SKYTECH / OMNIVOX. Still, he still has the opportunity to tell the RCMP to whistle Dixie as he is not required to answer any questions asked of him - unlike the freedom hugging UK.
Let's hope ANONYMOUS does work the slime-buckets over well. Let's hope they also release the Social Insurance Numbers - which only have 5 lawful uses in Canada and cannot be used as a national identity number (even by the various governments of Canada).
Dawson College used to have a reputation for quality but now even their diplomas - churned out like a diploma mill - aren't printed on the best paper.
The police are supposed to be investigators who offer their results of inquiries (if they can be believed) to a member of the judiciary, or an official inquiry/commission, and THEY make a finding and issue a decision.
With Saville it seems that all the normal procedures have been swept aside and the Plod have become investigators, judge and jury.
Whether the claims against Saville have been proven, or not, since the police have adopted a position against Saville, who has absolutely no one acting for him, their actions are to be questioned.
And why has it taken so long, by so many people, to find their voices? Surely one or two, or their parents, would have acted. It should also be born in mind that way back when Saville allegedly committed these assaults, "putting out" for favours was common.
Doesn't make it right but it surely changes the circumstances.
Chances are that the intended viewers, children, wouldn't even know who the character was supposed to represent, only these faux angry parents who love bitching about anything.
Many equipment and software builders has 'education' plans whereby they offer discounts to schools and students.
They should check the Uni's purchasing staff and the Presidents office, as well as their children, to see if they got free handouts.
I have been to OEMs to get 'factory training' for equipment being sold into Canada by my then employer. In return for this 'vacation' I was expected to document the training I received.
I used both audio recordings and paper notes. Another fellow used a laptop.
On the way home his laptop got pinched but, seemingly my paper notes and audio recordings had no attraction for the thief(ves).
I love paper notes, with pencil writing, because not even a good soaking in water will obliterate them.
There the U.S. goes again, shooting itself in the foot.
Mr. OBL won so often/so long against the USA because he stuck to the basics. They should have withheld all their goodies until they went to war.
the US is also more vulnerable since they implemented so many systems and forgot to put a lock on the front door. Arrogant ignoramus.
