  • Re: iPhone backup / restore

    [quote user="aapis"]Assuming it stores the backup on the device temporarily (or permanently), that message seems to indicate that there is not enough room to do so. I'm not sure how you arrived at your conclusion.[/quote]  Because it should overwrite the existing data on the phone?!? What use is a backup function that only ...

  • iPhone backup / restore

    So today I tried to restore my iPhone, giving the following pleasant experience. First, obviously, I did a backup. Backup asked me (translated and from memory): "There is purchased media on your phone not in your media library. Do you want to sync it to your library?" I click the "Yes (of course, dumbass)" button and vaguely ...

  • Re: eBay OMFG

    Read about it in the news last Wednesday (IIRC) that eBay has been hacked and users should change their passwords. A day later, the news said eBay is preparing to send emails to users. And I'm thinking "why haven't they done this by now already". Now it's Monday and I still haven't got that mail!

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"] [quote user="topspin"]They forced the aircraft of the president of (IIRC) Bolivia to landing to search the aircraft, suspecting it had Snowden on board.[/quote] Good.

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]He ended up in Russia, which just happens to be his country's biggest enemy, and God only knows what he handed over there.[/quote]  And why did he end up in Russia?

  • Re: EU court ruling WTF

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"][quote user="random"]for example, what Snowden did would be totally legal in Germany[/quote] So Germany allows its intelligence workers to spy for other countries and leak state secrets?

  • Re: Did I miss the thread about the new Firefox redesign?

    [quote user="Zylon"]I also like how Firefox now has a fucking POWER BUTTON on the "hamburger" menu. Because really, the title bar close button is just so 2010s. [/quote]  That's retarded. And completely irrelevant. I've never used the hamburger button in EVER. I wouldn't even have realized this button exists ...

  • Re: C:\PROGRAM

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]I'm always kind of amazed when people make comments like this. Sure, ads can sometimes irritate me, but "I just can't use the web if there are ads" sounds like something a crazy person would say. I'm not trying to be a dick here, but it sounds like you suffer from crippling OCD. ...

    [quote user="blakeyrat"] In any case, unless AdBlock Plus changes their default settings, you'd only use it if you were a sociopathic asshole anyway. [/quote]  Sorry, I tried using the web without adblocker last week or so. Simply, it just didn't work. I sooner ragequit than get anything done.
