So I wont have to purcahse overpriced blu ray disks crammed with crap you'd only watch once just for the sake of getting the film (which is what I actually wanted to purchase and watch more than once) in HD.
Hopefully the price for the 46 will be realistic and so I'll buy one when it lands in the UK (if it does)
Seems we are back in mid 90s territory again where the operators are competing over call quality, capacity and coverage.
How llong before Orange launches a TV ad featuring a native American tracker or simiar (a la One2One's launch of EFR) trumpeting this service at £x a month.
Not long I reckon.
Maybe this was the Apple plan all along.
1. Launch an ad for the Macintosh in which you try to convince the world that Apple is a force for good and is disruptive to the status quo (Apple 1984 commercial, a frame of which the author has used as an icon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYecfV3ubP8)
2. Play the hard done by underdog for 23 years, during this time launch an MP3 player which turned out to be a success, launch accompanying music store.
3. Milk the MP3 player's success by launching a handheld computing platform that doubles as a phone and which you exert complete control over, make the marketing and hardware so good that the none tech savvy completely miss this fact and go mad for it.
4.IIntroduce free applications that provide a useful function but also harvest data that you can sell to government or business (the highest bidder)?
Steve Jobs has been very clever and all this makes Microsoft look very tame in comparison.
Google and Apple are the companies to fear the most in the coming years, I'm not of the tinfoil hat brigade but I think the author makes a lot of good points.
El Reg has previously reported that the operators and indeed ofcom are unhappy about publishing transmission site details http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/08/11/ofcom_information/
So how can you now suggest sitefinder (which is maintained by a body that would rather the site did not exist) is a reliable source of information?
I'd also read that article again if I were you as parts don't make sense.
I could do a much better job and I'm not a journalist.
Can someone enlighten me as to why Stella is referred to as wife beater?
Because lots of wannabe real men who beat their wives because it makes them feel like a real man drink it?
Apologies for the question but as I'm a real man and not one of these scumbags I wouldn't know.
To research this shit, oh yeah we do along with students studying worthwhile Degrees (read: anything but media studies, psychology, arts or these craxy qualifications about a celebutard) to actually make a difference.
Have they found a cure for:
Carious other incurable conditions?
What's that you say? No?
So why are w**kers like this paid to research and write stuff like this?
He really needs to be fired along with the moron that signed off the research.
OK I'm not a Professor and I don't have a Degree but I'd really like some money to go to Canada for a couple of weeks to discover whether Bears do indeed shit in the woods as I really think the confirmation of this theory would benefit himanity.
Where do I apply? About 150K should be enough.
This dreadful bilge is on a par with I wish it could be Christmas every day by Roy Wood and Wizzard and of course Boney M
The only Christmas track I can just about stand is Farytale of New York by The Pogues but in another couple of years that'll be on the list too.
When I hear this in a shop I cant help wishing for a shotgun to take out every speaker I can find.
"The law is the law and you can't change that" said the Fat Controller
That's Conservative ideology right there, you cant change the status quo unless you are seen as an upstanding member of society so that means a banker, solicitor, barrister or anyone else with pots of cash that wishes to make a generous donation to Conservative party funds.
I grew up with Thomas the Tank and quite frankly I'm cynical of what any politician says, not down to Thomas but due to watching the manure coming from their mouths for years (I've watched the news since I was 5)
Seriously, its a kids TV programme, go and research something that will benefit humanity for goodness sake.
Over analysis can be damaging to your mental health.
All UK mobile operators and unlimited ISPs should take note.
Technically there is no such thing as unlimited and the best way to control usage on your network is to charge for bandwidth and plough a portion of the revenue back into additional capacity/network upgrades not subject users to a dire service just to deliver on marketing messages.
To the obvious Bada Bing joke so I guess I'll have to say something intelligent.
AC Posted Tuesday 8th December 2009 17:51 GMT makes an excellent point about there being too many phone OSes about
SE does have the right idea in just developing the phone OS around its core function of being a err, phone
If the person calls their phone and a cabbie answers it, how exactly would that excuse work then?
Think it through before posting.
I've left my mobile on my desk 'and thought sod it I'll get it tomorrow' when leaving work but never in a cab.
One day without a mobile is no loss at all.
MDeath as that is when it's used and Jobs hasn't trademarked the letter M yet, has he?
Does show him up for the heartless greedy bastard he is though.
As for choice of platform/device I choose whatever does whatever job best.
I own an iPod Nano and have purchased some tracks from iTunes because it connects to my stereo and Apple had the tracks I wanted.
I use a dual boot XP/Ubuntu system because stuff I run needs Windows and I like to tinker with Ubuntu.
I own a Nokia 6700 because I'm not a sheep.
Think his comments prove that a certain proportion of yanks have no idea what humour is.
After all, how can you explain Friends?
Crawl back under your stone my friend as you will never understand how side splittingly funny these reconstructions are.
Mixing news with humour while winding up the staff by asking where the IT angle is constitutes the very essence of the site which is why I visit every day as it gives me a good laugh.
Don't like ti? There are plenty of other sites to spend your time on so off you go.
Keep up the stirling work Lester
Phone a la Orange.
Failing that I think I ain't Spartacus has the right idea in calling it t'Orange
t'future's bright. t'future's t'Orange
Have to agree though they were a much more interesting company when Hans Snook was in charge and they built a house with voice controlled everything
Looks like the loons are out in force and you haven't properly read the article.
I'm pretty sure what Bill was saying was that in cases such as that of murder or even if someone dies of a heart attack while out on their own it should be possible for law enforcement to retrieve information to perhaps let next of kin know that their husband/wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/son/daughter or whoever has been killed and to aid in the detection of the crime or do you think we should let murders walk free and victims be buried anonymously?
Hmmm thought so.
While I'm definitely against mass surveillance I do think police should have access to devices in cases like this.
Here's hoping you never suffer such things.
If you are a successful musician you should set up your own label which you transfer your rights to but retain 100% control of.
I'm sure he hopes that Warner are the first of the gang to die (sorry can't add anymore to this because most of the time I couldn't make out what he was bloody saying)
I think we've found out why the cloud isn't the future as this kind of seems pretty pointless unless what they are actually sending is program code to be instaslled in the cloud as using it for data storage obviously isn't practical unless database and the programs that query it are both in the same cloud and the operation doesn't require the transfer of massive amounts of data otherwise Amazon's internal bandwidth will be quickly clogged up.
All this cloud stuff sounds impressive but it still comes down to individual storage, servers and networking appliances so its just shifting the management headache.
