For those of you who don't know Bob the Builder, here in the Britain he appears on TV all the time, is inexplicably popular with people who have had barely any education, implements large scale infrastructure projects with no regard to their actual cost, and often repeats the catchphrase "Yes we can".
Do you have something similar in the USA?
Presumably because it's a quotation.
Sell dealerships, complete with 1 'demo model', for the price of 1 car.
While the traditional London Underground has drivers, that's pretty much just because the powerful union in charge won't let them be upgraded to be driverless. We've had reliable, safe driverless trains for over 25 years on the 45-station Docklands Light Railway in the East of London.
People who run out of memory are more likely to upgrade when the next iPhone comes out.
"Windows got a lock on the desktop because people liked it"
Windows got a lock on the desktop because it was next to f***ing impossible not to buy it every time you bought a PC, and the only alternatives were Dos or throwing out all your computers and software to switch to Macs.
You could always try the RICO Act.
Net neutrality is what ought to prevent racketeering in the digital age. In the old days the Mafia turned up on your doorstep and said "nice warehouse you have here, it would be a shame if it 'burned down', give us some money and we can make sure that doesn't happen." Without net neutrality, Comcast can turn up on your doorstep and say "Nice website you've got here, it would be a shame if it 'slowed down', give us some money and we can make sure that doesn't happen."
Microsoft only does well in areas where it has a monopoly. What it's doing here is not buying an asset, it's buying retrospective market share and killing a competitor. Mojang sold a lot of games before Notch left just like Nokia sold a lot of phones before the Elop disaster. It doesn't matter to Microsoft that Nokia imploded or that Mojang's main asset (Notch) left, the point isn't to have their assets or to actually do anything with the brands, that's just a bonus if it happens. The point is simply for them not to be competitors any more.
Economies of scale. LCD makers already have huge factories pumping out more 1920x1080 screens for use in HD TVs each week than the whole laptop industry uses in a year.
What was it like working with occasional guest star Stephen Hawking?
Without the market share needed to embrace and extend anything, is there actually a real reason for Microsoft bother having their own a browser at all?
Wouldn't bundling another browser with WIndows and laying off the IE division make more financial sense that carrying on with a product that cost money to make, generates no revenue and is so badly respected by customers that Microsoft literally can't give it away?
Exactly, I've found that the only way to get Facebook to work the way it should work â" showing everything posted by people I know and pages I've liked â" is to install the FBPurity browser extension (from fbpurity.com) and to manually select 'receive notifications' from a hidden drop down menu when I 'like' a page.
The iPhone app just keeps getting worse, it does have the ability to show things in the right order, but it conveniently forgets that setting every time you open the app, and now the app has stopped showing everything after the first few characters when some sends you a message, begging you to install an extra app (but you don't need to, just open facebook.com in the phone's browser and you can read and respond to messages there).
Looks like dodgy statistics to me, they also have Apple at 6% when a much better known market research company says Apple' sales market share is 13.7% (source: http://www.gartner.com/newsroo...).
A limited private copying exemption was approved in the House of Lords yesterday, and is due to be introduced on 1st October - see http://www.publications.parlia... for a full and interminably dull discussion on it.
