The BBC, which has been Microsoft's UK propaganda division since 2006, recently aired a programme that declares Nokia's Symbian OS is "not long for this world" because, according to BBC reporter Marc Cieslak, the market is allegedly "dominated" by, amongst other platforms, Windows Phone.
“While its camera is impressive, Nokia's choice of operating system is less so. The 808 is powered by Nokia's Symbian OS, an operating system that, in a landscape dominated by iOS, Android and even Windows Phone devices, is not long for this world.”
Exactly in what sense could Windows Phone, a platform with just a 1.9% global market share, be said to "dominate"?
As of two days ago, the UK Advertising Standards Authority's powers now extend to the Web:
From 1 March, advertising regulators will be able to punish companies that publish misleading claims on their own websites or on social networking sites.
The Advertising Standards Authority says it will police rogue online advertisers through complaints from the public.
Its chief executive Guy Parker tells BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast's Rachel Burden that it is necessary to ensure "advertising is legal, decent and truthful".
It surely hasn't escaped anyone's attention that motherboards based on AMD's G34 socket and Opteron 6100 processors are, putting it mildly, a bit scarce. In fact it looks like they've disappeared completely.
So what happened?
According to a poster with insider information, on the Pro Tools Forums:
It's my understanding that the most recent versions of OSX have departed from the Unix kernel heritage.
I have heard from a reliable source, inside Digidesign, that they actually have Protools running on Linux, and that the port from OSX isn't that hard, but are under contract obligation to Microsoft to not release a Linux port. Otherwise Microsoft can revoke their access to the Windows SDK.
