It's a PC that runs Windows. There is no Microsoft lock in because there is a choice to run another OS on it. It may come with Windows, but you are not locked in to keeping it on. If you so choose you can put some form of Linux on it or you can put OSX on it if you so choose. Not something that applies to the iPhone.
Do you really think Apple has any more morality or ethics than any other corporate entity. The number that care for anything other than the bottom line are few and far between, and Apple certainly isn't one of them.
I've been a Dabs customer for quite a few years with not a single problem. I ordered something while they were having the issues and it did take a bit longer than normal, but it was sorted out relatively quickly. I gather some aren't so lucky, but I will certainly be remaining a customer. although I'm sure there will be some that won't. I've had worse shopping experiences, with the worst one being with a certain overclockers retaiIer. THAT was a painful experience.
Personally I think Microsoft are missing a trick here. They should be trying to license out the Kinect tech to TV & Monitor manufacturers for a remote control with motion and as a by-product integrated Xbox support as well as the possibilities it could bring to the PC through having it monitor integrated.
Which is exactly the point he was trying to make, because the fact that the argument is being reviewed by the exact same people that are making the argument that any results even if they are correct will be looked at with suspicion because they weren't reviewed by impartial people. Personally I don't buy the climate change nonsense so I guess I'm what they have now labelled a "denier" which many nutcases in the climate movement would quite happily equate to a Nazi, which I'm fine with as long as I can label them "delusionists"
What can I say other than bad.... shockingly bad, nay shamefully bad. It's just.... well.... just bad. You will have more enjoyment using your money to drink yourself into a catatonic stupor while someone plucks out your pubic hair with a chainsaw. Yes!!!! It is THAT bad.
As a sidenote, is it just me or does the "Duke" in that picture look like a dwarf.
I don't think it's a pretty immature statement in the slightest. I think maybe the five years mentioned is a little extreme, but a mandatory two years, not so much. Would your view change if it was some chav who mugged an old lady and went on a spending spree with her cash and cards, or a teen burglar pilfering your TV's and laptops. Just because it's online doesn't make it a victimless crime and as mentioned, some people are affected for years.
Jebus, I'm kicking into my mid forties and even I think he sounds like an old Jewish man.
"You kids and yer crazy digital music"
I think someone might have failed to point out to the antiquated old fart that CD's are digital as well and I'm pretty sure predates Steve blowJobs iTunes by a number of years. Although iTunes (and possibly Steve too) does indeed suck sweaty balls..... but then I think Jon might too!!!
Three copies from me of that fucked up piece of junk. Two for the PC which to date still fail to work correctly, and one for the Xbox 360 which I believe is fine. They will NEVER receive another penny from me for that fucking franchise and I imagine there are many PC and PS3 owners who feel exactly the same.
The original V+ boxes were absolute piss, but the Samsung as someone mentioned is far far better. It is much quicker and doesn't have half the bugs although it still isn't perfect and still needs the odd reboot. I managed to get the Samsung because I complained to VM, and got an engineer out. He came out and said the new Samsungs were coming in so he put one of those filter things in and said call back in a month as they should be in high supply. I did and got one... even got the same engineer. TIVO is looking good, so hopefully that doesn't get fucked up as well, although if I don't win one of the the free 1000 then I ain't subscribing anyway.
