Hacker sentenced to six years – WITH NO INTERNET


Impossible to enforce these day there are so many devices that can connect to the internet, but it may do him a lot of good as he can still connect for educations purposes

'Apple's iOS 6 maps app is SHOCKING, rushed and half-baked'


Yeh issue out of nothing, apple replaces an app with a shocking product ad all you say is people should just use a webpage. How exactly will the majority of people know how to do this and why should they have to.

Im pretty sure if apple put out a press release saying if you go to an apple store they will bend you over and give it to you good and proper more apple fanboys would turn upand somehow justify it


Re: Meh ...

What a silly comment its irrelevant if google maps was not that good first time around, the iphone was using the current version of google maps not version 1.

The regression in features i can life with but the blatant shoddyness of locations, aerial images and place data is shocking ad in laces non existent.

In many places the roads are simply not mapped, in others they are spelt incorrectly and as the sear only allows exact matches some businesses and places will never be matched

Apple didnt need to release this now they should of got it out of version 0.00001 instead of putting their ego related google battles before their customers

HTC's 4G patent beef could get iPhone 5 BANNED in US


Call me stupid but surely using patents that are part of a standard mean they need to be provided for licence on reasonable terms?

Apple's Retina Macs: A little too elite?


Apple price gouges it users shocker

Bye, bye Apple. Now Facebook's the global app kingmaker


Dont they make a 5% referee fee from apple if someone links to the store and purchases?

Apple silences mute kids' speech app in patent blowup



In the Apple world Court they have already assessed the patents and provided their ruling

Yet again apple oversteps its mandate, unless they get a court order to remove it why are they taking sides?

Mistakes over GCHQ codebreaker's death crippled inquiry


Re: Isn't it obvious

Totally didnt think of this and yes it would explain the lack of crime scene at the flat and the bag



Who know how he got into that situation but the very strange part is the totally clean/srubed appearance of his flat

If this had been some bizzaire sex game gone wrong i doubt it would be this clean unless the 'other' people where part of the same "dark arts" whatever that is

Latest Call of Duty day-one sales hit $400m

Saying that im guessing the police need to investigate this for corruption purposes

Xbox Live patrols hit by ugly SWAT attacks


Surely the bigger concern should be how did they know where he lived

Called 999 recently? They've got your number

Thumb Down


Wheres the story here?

Seems like is i reported something i would expect the poilce to have a record of it if i called back 6 months later

Skype still staggering after major blackout



Thsi seems to be a fatal flaw in skype to be honest distributed should be able to cope

Sony pips MS with 4.1m motion controller sales



Pips it how exactly?

2.5 months move sales vs 25 days kinect sales..

Google: Oracle doctored that 'copied Java code'


Google slopy shoulders

With comments like this google may well have started the beginning of the end of android as a viable commercial device, you can guarantee phone manufacturers will drop it like a bad cold if there is any sign of validity of oracles claims now

Phone 7: Another Vista or another XP?



Why not turn imap on in gmail?

hold on that would make thing easier cant have that

Microsoft takes Oracle side in Google Java-phone attack


Hold on

Microsoft agreed cross licensing on these patents to allow them to create their JVM like frameworks, it is impossible for them to side with google who decided to skirt round these patents

Just as google has sided with verison on net neutrality that is for gooles self interest in the mobile world, microsoft has sided with oracle for interest ...so what?

George Lucas names Star Wars Blu-ray release date

Thumb Down


Up the price because ythere are 6 filsm even though 3 are trash

US appeals court bashes warrantless GPS tracking


right decision

The whole point of a warrant is to prove there are reasonable circumstances to investigate further

In not sure if the issue here was that the gps was placed on a car on provuate property?

If the gps had been placed on public property say in a public car part would that be ok?

O2 dithers over Apple iPhone 4 refund pledge



o2 supplied the phone under contract the phone is not fit for purpose

Dead Pink phone fallout hits Microsoft's top brass


xbox live

Id say MS have innovated a lot in the online console space with other like sony, steam trying to catch up with trophies, steam achievements etc

They invested no money and the guy got sacked lol

Apple, AT&T slapped with iPhone 4 lawsuit



Surelt y this is why most phones ahve the antenna at the top to avoid this situation this will most likely go down as one on the stupid design flaws in apples history

I'm lost without Google Wi-Fi snoop


no even close

Front lawn? i dont think so it is leaving the door, open google has to decide to open the door and have a look in

Thumb Down

Missing the point a bit

If i left my door unlocked would google be valid to have a look round my house and see what i own? Thought not. Of course they have every right to make a note of where my house is on a map.

The no harm done argument is silly, intent is the key and this is what the US government will hopefully get to the bottom of.

Either the google decision makers never knew about it or it was a 'rougue' engineer that somehow was never noticed in testing or the 3 years worth of data collected.

Google need to prove and provide the engineer or provide who approved the actions for appropriate privacy invasion sanctions.

Microsoft hit with Salesforce patent 'violation' counter punch


8 vs 5

so ms wins right?

Im sure MS will find another 10 or so patents if they looked hard enough, companies like salesforce need to be careful they do not prod the nest troo hards or the will be in litigation well forever

Spain objects to Street View Wi-Fi snooping

Thumb Up

Totally agree

Its about time this is a serious breach of anti tapping laws and needs to be treated seriously

It is not enough for google to say it was a a mistake they need to prove that it was a mistake by one person and that person needs to be punished in law

If there is proof that this was not actually one person but was an approved feature of the project them the approval line needs to be investigated and those people brought to task

This was not a one off grab of data but three years of data collection

Apple prices up iPad for UK
