Re: rude and apathetic
In fairness the rendering engine for Drupal is more complicated than a turbofan jet engine. Does it really need to be that way? Ask a Drupal dev and they will tell you it's not complicated enough.

5. already obsolete when you buy them
so yes if IBM Dell and HP need a kick up the backside then its about time. Frankly I should be able to get a dual Xeon server for the price of a meal in a good restaurant. One that runs cool and quiet enough to put under my TV with no fans so I don't have to clean out the dust. Why cant they just do that?
They want you to think they don't know you but in fact the NSA and GCHQ do all the analytics using secret wartime algorithms while you get served up a bunch of unrelated garbage for every search term you can think of. If you could see how deep the rabbit hole really goes, you would stop using Facebook pretty quick. So of course they don't patch you into their backend. The tech that runs all their front end stuff is 15 years behind what they're already doing in secret.
Umm people have been getting fucked over on this planet for thousands of years.
It's only in the last 100 that we've developed the technology to grow a large population of many billions ripe for fucking, and the computer technology and social sciences needed to fuck them all quickly and efficiently.
If I want to delete a password in IE I have to delete them all. Rather than just having a list of sites with saved passwords than can be managed individually.
Now we know Microsoft spent billions of dollars making development tools to make this kind of stuff easy to do yet they still don't use it in their own products.
we live at a time when 2 working adults cant support a family that 2 generations ago would have been supported by one. parents are forced to send their kids to expensive nurseries where their children are abused. the kids grow up never having spent any time talking to their own parents.
but you can buy a new iPad so its ok for us to be treated like this by the powers that be. hand over your cash and forget about little johnny or jane being abused by the staff at the nursery where most of your wages are spent because society wont let you raise your own kid anymore. its the new world order baby.
This patent business is nonsense. Why should a company earn a living from work they already did?
If we abolished patents, companies would be forced to compete with eachother, by constantly doing new work (driving the economy forwards). It's the patent system that's put the breaks on our faltering economy, because every year it grows by attrition and every year new business men face a tougher challenge before they even go into business.
I say, let the chips fall where they may, let companies rehash and reuse ideas, and see if that doesn't kick start your precious fucking economy. Because I'll tell you one thing that won't kick start it: another housing bubble.
well dysons are the best but they make you pay and they're by no means perfect. the hoses break instantly etc.
hopefully sammy will drive the prices down because I shouldnt need a mortgage to use the latest generation of vacuum technology. it should not be the case that only one company can implement something that amounts to a necessity.
This won't affect me and if it does it will be in a good way so for once I'm genuinely happy to see MS put their foot in it. It must cost them pocket change to run the program and its the most effective money they could possibly spend on marketing since it keeps suckers believing in the product.
So why did they get rid of it? I think the same reason they got rid of second hand games on X Box.
It's a hostile takeover. All the terms and contracts have changed to hand ownership of your data to them and to store it on their servers with cooperation from the NSA. It's the end game. Now they don't even care if they piss you off, because you're just another terrorist in their database, and you aint worth shit.
If you want to pass a law to take away their freedoms all you have to do is call it the PATRIOT act. How ironic.
Wouldn't happen here. There's plenty of goons trying to get the snooping laws in over here and they always fail. I think it's because the name is a lot shittier: IMP, no one here is dumb enough to vote for it. But in our country because we're free, if the government wants to do something and we're not voting, they'll just take away our right to vote, do it anyway, and promise that we can vote to remove the bad thing in the future (maybe). that's the British way of oppressing people.
the [redacted] days where they could just illegally [redacted] and [redacted] and engage in anti-competitive highly [redacted] and charge whatever they like are over.
the scale and the speed and the scope of their lawbreaking makes [redacted] look like a traffic warden
The hardware is costly, now.
But in 2 years it will be commodity and Apple will sell it in a sexy case. I suppose 2 years is an eternity to wait for the gamer demographic so it probably won't affect sales. At least not among their core demographic. But this thing *is* a locked down PC with off the shelf parts: AMD probably will sell you the same chip (or better) through eBuyer in a year or two. Is it that long to wait?
The new Xbox, and the new playstation, really are the ugliest consoles to date. These things never looked "good" but now they really do look bad. They could have put SOME effort into the design and realised that these items go into peoples houses, but no, for your £400 you get the cheapest of cheap plastics. At least Apple would give you some aluminium for that price. Fucking hell.
And there we have the bigotry in plain English. People with autism must have chosen to be like that and [therefore] deserve to be at a disadvantage to the general population.
