Maybe they're going to become a CA
As per subject
I'm too busy with my mind's red pen correcting the English in that article.
3/10 poor effort.
IIRC, prior to said holiday (with David Geffen in Italy?) he had exactly the opposite stance
Presumably he is not the subject of a court order that was served on him to not provide such access?
Unless his name's SKY or Mr British Telecom, etc
"Nah, playing Destiny"
Left out the best response:
Destiny for PS4!
That USA is apple's main market?
Perhaps the droid/other market share abroad has grown so large that it's not worth funding the litigation (won't someone think of the lawyers??). Plus 'abroad' doesn't have the USPTO and all 'specialness' that entails... (They ditched all the non-domestic battles they didn't think likely to win without that particular 'specialness', perhaps)
A possible sign of El Reg's "Peak Apple" ? Surely someone didn't just simply sit down and do maths of all the lawyers' bills vs revenue/potential gains, that's would be too, well, sensible and non-thermo-nukuler.
Perhaps start sending them to judges, coppers and politicians
Expect most of them will likely delete them as duplicates...
Unless you've not checked your email/IM/SocialMeeja within the last X hours...
Add 5% to all their car exports cos the Yanks will still want Mercs, Porches, Audis and BMWs.
Fund the program from that and make the Yanks pay for for their own countersurveillance
It's maybe more likely that many people held off buying a tablet until they were higher-powered (as they are now) and that such a demographic of people, being more circumspect and probably thrifty couldn't see the point in spaffing a wedge more cash on an iThing when a droidThing does the same and cheaper, lighter, waterproofier (in the case of stuff like the Z2, at least).
Chances are they already have a droidPhone too (statistically) so logically a tablet would also be a droid so they could have familiar apps. Then they start using the internet on it as a tab is way more handy for webbyness than a phone.
So the stats increase.
In favour of whom, exactly?
There's one that can be trusted more?
I don't have so much of a problem with the data sharing to be honest. There's a certain sense in it like motor insurance/tax/licensing/mot'ing already does.
It's the fucking data collection that needs reigning right in.
That'd Nukuler, surely ;o)
The US offering newly be-rubbled countries 'rebuilding' aid provided, naturally, by US construction corps who go in, milk all the money out of the country and then bugger off leaving them newly be-skinted as well as be-rubbled. Then they have to go to the IMF or World Bank (or whichever it is this month) and beg for money on terms dictated by powerful western nations (to not point fingers any further).
It lumps one into that demographic...
That's cos you can get a NEW PC for $450...
That's quite the stuff-up
There must be some Dark Art to making shit break _that_ comprehensively
Donde esta la cervesa
In Soviet Russia....
Can't believe I read it all, too.. .and understood half of it still...
So they'll be against us...
No change there ;o)
uk.gov just did that...
When the TPIT or whatever it is gets ratified and (especially American) corps can sue (especially non-American) govs for doing things that injure their precious profits.
So, you buy a fourpack of coke in the supermarket which says Four for £4 and because you don't check the POS display when paying and your card gets billed £30 you let it slide?
Right. 'course you would.
They're regulated by the FSA in the UK AFAIK
But calling it a 'feature' sounds like bullshit to avoid paying the bug bounty, I can't see how any court would allow a greater amount than that authorised to be vindicated. Well maybe a Nigerian one...
Great lying of phone on screen
'Hola' makes you appear to be in the US for Netflixesque purposes (or anywhere else you choose for that matter)
Bloody useful on a phone or tablet, has a Chrome plugin for PC, etc
Not that it makes him wrong...
Evidently it's still more financially attractive not to do that, despite their whinging about how they're only able to afford the one Bentley this year...
Proof, in of itself, that they're not skint else you can bet there'd be an epic digital dissemination system in place already if it were worth five dollah.
If Destiny PS4 preorders are running at nearly 1/2 million (maybe just USA alone - http://www.vgchartz.com/preorders/) and say half those people (conservative) downloaded beta last weekend but shared one code with a pal then that's 500,000 x 13GB downloads (about 6.5 PB off the top of my head). If a gaming co can handle that - and there was very little outage in EU Beta here - then the MAFIAA have no excuse.
An SSH connection? A VPN?
Or just the common or garden variety of unobscured Torrent traffic. It also implies they're guessing as to what's happening content-wise on your connection, too, though presumably they're not allowed to packet-inspect to see if you're downloading Ubuntu or Transformers (so you can delete it without watching it, natch)
It was Tensie's hand..
So they say...
I hope the Leics plods prepared for a sudden rash of 'false positives', then
Here's the others who voted NO:
I have the Alpha, watched the boys trying it out, didn't even bother myself after what I saw.
I was expecting serious jaw-droppery, at least visually at the very least. Will check out the Beta (have a pass for that when it's out) but freebie game (well, kinda freemium) Warframe kicks its arse and have only spent about £12 on it for well over 200 hours play so far.
If the Beta isn't a serious advance on the Alpha (not expecting it to be) then I may well cancel the pre-order.
Just ban the USA. "period"
You really think it's that likely that you're gonna get blown up?
The terrorists have won, methinks.
Any idea if that repellent works on the Robobadgers in Warwickshire?
I've never seen one (yet, natch) though I'd feel safer with some good Robobadger Repellent to hand!
OK so that's county...
We do now have a list of good noise-generating terms to put into communications in general.
I'm buying shares in Western Digital, anticipating the noise increasing NSA storage needs ;o)
The NSA would lose a lot of intel from being outside much of the traffic (assuming LJ is USA-hosted currently)?
As much as they're ever outside of anything, of course.
Tez, is that you..?
Seconded, having just googled her. Much more like her than Lohan
How hammered was she not to realise she was in a voice booth for Rockstar when that got recorded?
Unless they somehow stole (actionable) or got a royalty-free (tough titties, Lohan) bunch of her speech then that shows she knows exactly what was going on, excepting the afore-alluded-to hammeredness.
It could of course be an intentional and cynical tie-up between Lushy Lohan and Rockstar to generate coverage, let's not rule that out.
And the insides of camera bodies
I too read Oatmeal's Tesla thingy and it makes me tempted but unless uk.gov are offering me a large bung to trade in the XKR for an S I can't afford one (85kW, natch), nor do I relish the thought of having to install a chargepoint at home for a few K to make filling it up practical.
I hear there's supposed to be a network of (free to Tesla owners) chargepoints 'coming in around a year' ... we'll see if that ever materialises cos if it doesn't it's a fail.
Savings per year are around 4k fuel (assuming free chargepoints), 280 tax (my XKR is X-reg so not £400), some saving on servicing for sure as there's less to maintain, presumably, like spark plugs, oil filters, etc. 'Full tank' range is the same.
The car is £72k though and the 0-emission benefit in kind runs out next year so that perk is eliminated, too, else it'd be a more plausible thing if there were 5 years left in that.
I quite fancy one but I don't think it's quite there yet (for me, anyway) except for people who can afford to go drop half a house on a car from their back pocket (or have more cunning accountants than I)
Shame. For me, leastways!
The FSM already knows this...
And so forth
