Is this the takeover of the known cyber-world by Google?


Major media publisher admits it is 'afraid of Google'

... one of Europe's largest media publishers, has said that his company is afraid of the power that Google has accumulated, and worries that the search giant is becoming a "superstate" immune from regulation...



IT is what we allow it to be...
Martin

Not really a surprise, they have been quietly building their empire.

Look at Android, the "acceptable Linux OS" Google made sure that it succeeded, it may be free to use and modify, but where do people go for their "Apps" the Google Play store and "by reusing the "Android" trademark; however, device manufacturers and wireless carriers have licensed the trademark from Google".

Whatever people may think Google "own" Android and I am sure are quite happy that "As of May 2012, Android became the most popular mobile OS, having the largest installed base, and is a market leader in most countries

So we have a choice MS, Apple or Google, I wonder who in 20 years will be running the consumer IT market, my moneys on Google.

Should we worry, well as you say Martin, "IT is what we allow it to be.." However do the masses actually care?

Ok...

so...

is this a real beer...? :)


I do believe it is and brewed by the Wychwood brewery who make one of my favourite beers Hobgoblin a few of which will be enjoyed later this evening.



I haven't tried said beer as it is seasonal and hard to find.

"The Dog's Bollocks

Seasonals - November

Standing out from the crowd, an old favourite returns that always lives up to its name.

Pale golden, well rounded flavours warm the palate & come together with a hint of nuts, resulting in a robust fulsome aroma that hangs low 'til the last.

A great excuse to go & see a man about a dog."

We were talking a while back about Big Boy #4014 being moved to Wyoming for restoration. Some good pics with this story.

Yes, that is a good story. Writer actually got it right.

Here's the detailed schedule for the trip to Cheyenne.

There is also a GPS tracking map

SHUDDER !!! The only bugs I like are the VW ones :-)

Er you don't I hope "Kill" bugs??



I can't even kill a mosquito myself...

No I do not knowingly kill any bugs. Any that get inside and wish to leave I help by opening windows or doors.

The only bug I have respect for is the common wasp, got badly stung as a child, so I give them a wide berth, but will definitely "assist" them in leaving.

There is just something sinister about them

I did buy retail. But that does suck you cant reuse an OEM when a computer goes up in smoke.


Well I have a mix of OEM and retail on my 7 machines, if one dies, MB,or HDD I just reload the OS or swap HDD to new MB and have never had a problem yet, this is with WIN7 and Vista. I have occasionally had to "re-register on line" when I change the MB, but at least 3 of them don't have the original MB.

I did try that site too..It also tried to load a malware. Finally gave up on it and went to the WinRAR. At this point, I'd done with 7z expanders.
Then the problem lies on your computer. The 7-zip site redirects to sourceforge.net for download and there never existed any malware from that site!

Agreed I just tried it no malware.
