I am also a prophet...
And I predict that in the near future Mr Zuckerberg and Facebook will be as relevant as Geocites, AngelFire, Tripod, Friendster and every other "flavour of the moment".
Satire is at it's most brilliant when it cannot be distinguished from reality:
Yes it's a must see film.
Okay the plot is very Dances with Wolves meets Ferngully. However the plot takes a back seat- It's just a device to hang some of the most immersive, spectacular and realistic visuals ever seen. This is a film that has to be experienced on a massive screen (pref. IMAX) in 3D. I liked one comment I saw online- "This film is for all those people who have ever bought a graphic card to replace the one their computer came with".
In Ireland Vodafone are already offering it to entice defectors back from O2- Available now.
You've got the sponsor and the logo. Now where's the merchandising???
...by the cheaper and better looking Chumby One.
I'm seeing this everywhere- I presume it does not stand for "Big Fat Fuck" anymore.
All round. I've been on Patrick Byrne's side since El Reg managed to teach me how naked short selling works. The plus side is that now I know what's happening at the end of Trading Places.
It's a eKing mini tablet:
Here's a more effective method of parental control:
don't give your child a mobile phone in the first place. 2 children in my 8 year old daughters class have already got mobile phones- so the rest of the kids are putting their parents under pressure to get them one too- The way we parents have reacted is to put pressure on the parents of the 2 phone owning children to remove the mobiles from them and to agree a minimal age whereby it should be allowable for a child to have one.
It appears to me that there wasn't any active comms to that server (or electricity for that matter) so I'm wondering how it was being backed up???
Does this model still have Face Dectection/Red Eye removal???
can someone send me Mr Slavins email address??? I have a large amount of money in a Lagos bank that I think he might be able to help me with.
we have an explanation for Mac users.
"With his SPACE machine, Underwood remembers, you could calculate the powers of 2 with a mere nine instructions. "Today, you'd need tens of thousands," he says. "That's terrible.""
What- has someone removed Left Shift instruction from modern processors?
and star of my favourite joke:
"Why does Edward Woodward have so many D's in his name?"
"Because otherwise he would be known as E-War Woo-War"
What are the red rectangles tracking in the CCTV footage???
"Must be an election soon"
Bravo sir, bravo.
...so was it a Violet Carson?
Isn't a "intellectual iPhone owner" a oxymoron? Certainly any I've met have failed to impress me with their intellect.
An article about fruitbat fellatio and yet nothing about Stephen Fry leaving Twitter (I'm sure there's a connection between the two somehow)
Crashed during install.
And to add insult to injury suggested it was my fault because I had removed a USB device (I hadn't).
As long as there isn't a law banning us from chucking harpoons at them...
Shouldn't the tag line read "The Simpsons, The Simpsons, The Simpsons, The Simpsons, Futurama, The Simpsons, The Simpsons..."
...at least the bear had the good sense to render the iPhone useless (well more useless than it already was).
It's not like they are relevant anymore- They are soon to go the way of Tripod, Angelfire, Geocites et al (and Facebook & Twitter to follow soon after)
...Carl4 is just jealous- he thought he was the only transvestite in the village.
How do they award the £1000 when the max score anyone can have per month is 3???
There's fun to be had...
...if we can get Sir Paul and Ringo to give Woolworths the thumbs up.
...is being too kind.
if Harriets just a bit touchy because she received such a low rating on PunterNet?
A prime case of "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."
I would have added Girl in the Fireplace, The Green Death, Terror at Fang Rock, Seeds of Doom and The Sea Devils.
Knights of Cydonia for the next Bond theme.
I would like to take this opportunity...
...to talk about the nice "racing stripe" I left on a Renault Migane this morning when the stupid cow driving it decided to pull into the cycle lane without checking to see I was in it. Fortunately I was able to evasive action to save my life but not before my brake lever met her paint work. So what does she do- Drives off as fast as possible- running a nice gouge along the full length of her car.
Made my day that did.
Let's keep the ball in motion...
First comes the apology; then comes the posthumous knighthood.
...that Stephen Fry is narrating the series- It's called "First Chance to See"
They are going to release a product with a name that sounds like 'anal'???
A little late???
First thing I thought when I saw this story last week was "So, who is she going to sue for this?"
"Microsoft says US is top malware target thanks to Microsoft"
"How can we monetize something that has already been given away for free for years!!!"
"Something else which you lot might want to ponder is just how we can release the Vulture 1 from the helium balloon at a predetermined altitude, without having to put together a mechanism which will add greatly to the payload weight. Any thoughts?"
A simple latex balloon would do the trick- the difference between the air pressure internal/external would make the balloon pop at a particular altitude (some testing needed to determine the amount of air to prefill the balloon with). You could then connect the PARIS directly to the balloon (though this runs the risk of non-separation due to the balloon not disintergrating fully) or have some form of holding mechanism which holds the PARIS as long as the balloon is inflated.
But how many of them are just using "The Recession" as an excuse to save money on a few salaries while making the remainder of the workforce pick up the jobs and duties left by those who've been made redundant (with no overtime pay).
It's good to see...
No remakes make the top 10 list.
Deckard: Do you expect me to talk, Batty?
Batty: No Mr Deckard, I expect you to die.
Don't they know it's only a matter of time before they go haywire and force them to kick Bishop Brennan- UP THE ARSE!!!
I was at a friends birthday party and she had a DJ. Rather than the old decks and vinyl, he played his tracks from a laptop. The quality of some of the songs (including "popping") clearly indicated that the tracks had been downloaded.
we might need to grow up but Sutherland definitely needs to get his head out of his own arse. He and others of his ilk (I'm looking at you Etrugrul) should have details such as telephone numbers, addresses, email addresses, info about spouse/kids all posted on a publicly accessible database- let's see how they like it. And then use the "it's how the data is used" argument right back at them when they inevitably ask for the database to be taken down.
Sutherland cannot predict how our private data will be used in the future and/or by other depts and governments. Just as I cannot predict how his data would be used by the general public if made available as suggested.
Just manually set my DNS addresses to the old Indigo ones and I was up and running with minimal downtown.
For year's I've been misinterpreting that cry as meaning "arse-punt me over the back wall. Please.."
This has to be the most stupid suggestion I've ever seen. Password masking is so prevalent that any user that cannot handle it should be banned from using a computer altogether- Simply making sure that Windows prompts for a password at switch-on would be enough to weed out these sheep.
