No, it isn't, you can still be USA based and having a normal day. Living in part of the world that doesn't celebrate the event is clearly a separate option.
I don't live in the USA, you insensitive clod!
"Nokia has sold over 100 million of it's Windows Phone"
You sure on that number, can you cite a source? I know last quarter they only sold 3-4 million Lumia's, so I doubt they sold almost 100 million in the preceding 3 quarters
Not, the judge gave them the wording required, and they added marketing fluff to it. The text was to be posted to rectify Apple's statements that the tablet infringed and inform consumers that it was safe to purchase a Samsung tablet. Instead Apple used the statement to continue to create the impression that the tablet infringed and it was just the English court that was wrong. That's called contempt of court and teh English courts do not tolerate it like the US courts seem to.
Worse, they quoted two court rulings that didn't apply, so in themselves those added statements were deliberately misleading. In the US case the jury found the tablet did not infringe, and the German ruling was incorrectly sought in the wrong court by Apple after the English court had already ruled on an EU wide basis. Apple had even told the English Appeal court they were wrong to bring the German case and would apply to have that interim judgement withdrawn.
The court gave Apple a reasonable amount of rope and they hung themselves with it. If they had simply printed the required text who would have noticed? Instead they now have a publicity problem on their hands.
I seriously doubt it's worth £100,000, these stories always go over the top on the value quoting the price for mint coins in perfect condition in the existing market trading volumes. There was a recent very large hoard valued in the press at tens of millions of pounds, but the coins were so degraded they were worth only a fraction of their individual mint value, and there were so many coins in the hoard it would have depressed the market value if they had been sold.
The real worry here is the guy apparently didn't know what to do once he had found the coins, there are legal requirements to be met, and archaeological best practice to be followed. No-one should be sold a detector without first having to take a one-hour training course in their legal and moral obligations. That said, I work with responsible detectorists all the time, many are very good, but there are also many like this guy who do terrible damage.
Some of the history there looks a bit sus. And how much can you trust figures that give iOS 66% of the mobile OS market and Android only 21%?
The Pope is Catholic! And bears have been spotted defecating in the woods!
This happens every time Apple releases new hardware. This is just Phoronix trolling for clicks again. Give it 6 months and the picture will be better. I had the exact same problems with my 2009 MBP, even used the exact same boot parms fr 6 months before things were sorted out.
The problem is that Qt 4.8.0 was developed outside the new Open Governance process, so the DIgia devs had the same problem of getting patches accepted into Qt 4.8.0 as the rest of the community. Now that 4.8 is released it will be moved to the community maintenance framework and the patches should start rolling in and being approved by the community maintainers. Note it is not in Digia's interest for there to be a fork in the core modules of Qt, they will make their money by staying compatible and selling services and add-on modules.

Soon as Qt 4.8 makes its way onto Gerrit for the Qt Project I can get onto fixing the bugs, the community process can't touch it until then.

Because it's neither?
Congratulations on your sterling efforts to keep up the great Slashdot tradition of not RTFA and getting it completely wrong as a result.
Both Qt5 and KDE Frameworks 5 will be mostly source compatible, it's binary compatability we're breaking, for many apps it will be a simple recompile. The aim is simply to modularise our libraries, clean up the deprecated API, and remove unnecessary dependencies. Your typical KDE app compiled against K5 will look exactly the same as the version compiled against kdelibs 4.7.
When I worked for a telco doing their billing system about 10 years ago a text already nominally cost them less than $0.01 and they were charging customers $0.20. I can only imagine it's gotten even cheaper since then.
Rofl, that's one of the more useless trolls Ive seen in a while
Funny, I don't recall you ever having paid me anything
No, then you just carry on using OpenGL 1.1 or xrender
