Believe me, Trimble know how to charge- $500 will seem like the greatest bargain ever as soon as the Trimble Beancounters finish their job.
Does anyone know who Marius Milner is working for these days?
on increased werewolf activity???
the caveat would be- "but don't put them on the board of directors unless you are prepared to suffer death by beancounter."
...rats leaving the sinking ship and a couple of asset strippers brought in to enrich the top level guys before the whole thing goes bang.
I think the gist of this article is that the EU will get PNR on amercian passengers which they can hold for 5 years (though half the time that US Homeland Security can hold the same data on EU passengers)
I've even seen the Tetris one done before.
yep- I was thinking of some form of shunt or switch.
Severing the spinal cord at the neck, rendering them quadriplegic. And then leaving them to the families to care for them.
Does this mean that the US will finally start giving the EU PNR for American passengers?
which was parodied in a Simpson's Treehouse of Horror- Pierce Brosnan provided the voice.
How about having a response time of less than 5 weeks (say 5 days) when people order new phone and broadband lines. That way you can start billing them 4 weeks sooner.
Same as my 10 year old. Everytime she wants to add a new app to her iPod, she has to ask me to type in my iTunes password. This also allows me to see if the app is suitable for her age, and in one case stopped her from getting scammed on an in-app purchase.
I've always liked Gobblers Knob in PA- Home of Punxatawny Phil of Groundhog Day fame.
I remember trying Hersheys for the first time when I was in the states. I bought it back to the shop and told them it was stale. When they told me it supposed to taste like that, I said 'Really??? And people eat this???"
not a fan of swiss chocolate (it's always over-creamed). Belgium and French chocolate is the best.
I'm reminded of Psion getting into bed with Motorola- That relationship effectively killed Psion.
I think Nokia started making a mess of things (read Symbian) before they acquired it.
but who rates the rating agencies?
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? applies...
Exactly what I was thinking- 'Oooh $25,000. That will put a huge dent in the dividend payout this year. Google will think twice about doing that again in the future.'
Wife: How's Mr Banerjee?
Dalek: HE'S NOT FEELING TOO WELL.
Wife: Oh why?
Dalek: BECAUSE I EXTERMINATED HIM.
Exactly what I was waiting for too. Also when the subway service was suspended the HUD should have displayed 'WALK YOU LAZY BASTARD".
Finally, at the end when he says 'want to see something cool?', I was really hoping that he was going to throw himself off of the roof of the building and the last shot would be the rapidly approaching ground.
Money parted from fool. Now fool wants money back.
I'm guessing he's heard about some Facebook stock coming up for options...
>only speculate money that you can afford to loose
as opposed to "only speculate money that you can afford to tighten"???
No, I understand the concept very well. However, being a developer myself I can price the cost of development for an App. If someone spent months writing that App they are either not a good programmer or are very new to Objective C. I doubt the requirement catalog for the App even ran to one page.
And for what it's worth, there are similar apps in the store for $10-$30.
Looks like the first party has been selling at over inflated prices for years and wants to continue doing so for many years to come.
However, $299 for a point and speech interface is taking the mickey too...
I challenged the last person who said this to me to hand over their ATM PIN, CVV2 code and passwords to their social media accounts.
More importantly, what's to stop the paedophiles working in the government and GCHQ from accessing the emails and web traffic of innocent children???
"Only suspected terrorists, paedophiles or serious criminals will be investigated," said the Home Secretary.
So their out is, everyone will be a suspected terrorist, paedophile or serious criminal. Until proven otherwise.
and yet the US is the biggest consumer of hentai and shißer porn outside of their respective countries (Japan and Germany).
I love the word SCOTUS, it's just one letter off of SCROTUS. Which is how I always read it.
Likewise- I haven't set foot in the US since March 2000. But since then I've had some fantastic holidays in BC. Good food, good beer, great people.
Microsoft/Nokia are currently trumpeting its App Store on TV. And what's the only App shown on the advert? The Groupon one.
I make a note of any restaurant that pop-up on Groupon, it's usually a sign that the eatery is on its last legs and should be avoided at all costs.
AdBlock turning all the blocked frames into cat pictures.
No, that one's true.
yep, one of the deadbeat channels. Didn't Red Dwarf go there to die too???
It's better to think of it as 'The Curse Of The War Horse'. Anyone (other than the original owner) who spent any amount of time with the horse died.
I loved Black Sheep, it's hilarious (sometimes intentionally so).
Agreed, I should hate this film but I find myself watching it every time it's on.
Looks like this poll could be a bit premature. Critics are saying that Eddie Murphy's latest shitfest 'A Thousand Words' is the worst film ever made and looks set to sweep the Razzies this Sunday.
I think he meant "bone us"- You know, the usual way IT is treated when there's pots of cash being doled out to all the wrong people.
No, that's a perfectly valid use of the word 'repair' . Perhaps a little archaic.
That is really one screwed up origin story.
I found it quite easy. I downloaded it last Thursday and a day later I'd finished all levels at 3 stars each. Now the app's asking for another 99c to load in another stage.
and a 56k modem (sans power supply). And an original iPaq.
God, what a turgid piece of crap.
The Bluetooth Revo ran for a decent amount of time on a full charge. However, the colour 5MX ran for just under an hour on a pair of AAs (both prototype units though).
