Inside the mind of a Bond supervillain: Psychotic, autistic - or neither?

Dalton's Bond...

"Dalton's, particularly, tried to get closer to Fleming's idea of a darker, more conflicted man."

One of the reasons I've always favoured him over the other Bonds. Dalton played the character a lot closer to how Fleming wrote him. I think License To Kill is the best example of Bond as written, fiercely loyal, cold blooded and willing to go to any lengths to achieve his objective.

Bloomberg's bomb: How SEC shredded Facebook's pre-IPO claims

Andrew Moore

Re: Caveat emptor only applies to a degree

But in this case, you could see that it was a Morris Minor, everybody in the industry said it was a Morris Minor. The only people that claimed it was a Porsche was the owner and a lot of 'financial analysts'. Now if you decide to go with the biased opinion rather than the informed one, then you shouldn't really be surprised when a Morris Minor ends up on your front doorstep.

Target Silicon Valley: Why A View to a Kill actually made sense

Andrew Moore

Re: If he wanted to make some cash out of a faked natural disaster

>Bond of course would be unflappable as he seems to favour Sony tech.

Well originally Ericsson tech but Sony bought them out (remember the P800 and how amazing it was that the baddie was able to take a picture of Bond with it....)

The plot of View To A Kill was just a weak rehash of Goldfinger.

Freetard-idol rock star Trent Reznor gives up, signs to major label

Errr....

"One frequently overlooked aspect of the major label model is that successful artists subsidise the less successful"

I think that should read:

Zuckerberg loses $8bn in Facebook IPO fiasco

Re: He hasn't lost anything

The Sunday Times Rich List did something similar with TomTom- Over valued them one year and placed them in the rich list and then next year decided that their paper wealth actually wasn't worth that much

Who queues for an iPhone 5? Protesters, hipsters and the jobless

Re: Waiting for

I kept thinking about Lou and Andy from Little Britian. I can see Andy (I mean Ali) coming out of the Apple store on Friday and chucking the iPhone5 in a bin, saying 'I don't like it.'

...Spke to a mate today who supplies me my pork products- and threre's no difference in the herd size this year than last year and he doesn't see any difference next year. I told him about the corn shortage and he said yeah, that will affect the large producers but not the small. So my bacon is saved.

So, for developers...

...we now have to program for 3 screen resolutions. I remember that 'different screen resolutions' was one of the big reasons a lot of iOS App developers crowed over why programming for their device was easier than Android.

'SEX and the FEMALE BRAIN are CONNECTED' - shock discovery

Andrew Moore

Re: Into the ear???

I remember a film that came out years ago about the life of Joe Orton called Prick Up Your Ears. I like to imagine the letter E being blown off in high winds and being replaced by a workman, who after reading the review for the film, accidentally puts the replacement E on the wrong end of the word.

UK's thirst for energy falls, yet prices rise: Now why is that?

Andrew Moore

"UK's thirst for energy falls, yet prices rise: Now why is that?"

Basic economy policy of 'what the market will bear'. If someone is prepared (or even happy) to pay £100 per month on electricity why shouldn't you continue charging them the same or even slightly higher while getting them to use less of your product.

And the great thing is, if the customer complains, just bleat on about how much power their standby devices are using (using incorrectly calculated research).

Apple misses earnings targets, Street reacts

Andrew Moore

Re: I think the title needs to be fixed.

Exactly what I was thinking- I'm not Apple's number one fan but this does seem to read that 'Market Analysts Get Their Sums Wrong (what a surprise)' or 'boo-hoo-hoo, Apple fails to make rich scum richer'

McDonalds staff 'rough up' prof with home-made techno-spectacles

Andrew Moore

Re: Funnily enough...

The problem I think is that people refer to McDonalds as a 'restaurant' (which it plainly is not). Of course this is enforced by MuckDonalds PR and marketing.

Strange- I must be extremely lucky then, because I've only had one bad meal in Paris and that was in a franchise (Hedgehogs???). But then I do know how to locate good restaurants off the beaten track.
