Users who ask "Is the GPS system down" when they have an issue with their SatNav.
Yes user, a constellation of approximately 24 satellites, which US military and numerous civilian enterprises are nearly totally reliant on, has switched itself off.
Only 11 actors?
I'm guessing that Peter Cushing is not counted as one of the actors who have played the Doctor
Re: How friggin awesome is evolution!
I know you are trolling but this probably supports evolution more- the mice that don't have the immunity die and therefore do not procreate, whereas the ones that do, get to pass on that trait to the next generation.
I will now prove that black is white and die on a zebra crossing.

Re: A bit on the late side for this aren't they?
I remember reports from Italy in the 70s about scooter passengers with walking canes hooking handbags.
Re: Its time...
I was thinking taser rather than explosives...
Me and the missus really enjoy Vagina is the New Penis (aka Prisoner: Cell Block USA).
Hemlock Grove was shite though.
Re: "Look at me!!!!! I'm an attention whore!!!!"
Ryanair play an invaluable role in keeping the chavs and the scumbags off of the nice peoples airlines. Just remember that next time your flight is landing and there are no idiots applauding.
There's a maker of pasta that might be interested...
Don't forget us poor bastards with LLI

The great thing about this story will be the number of media sites that will misspell "Hadron"
yes but now the investors know what the rest of us have known for the last 4-5 years and they want their money back.
When I'm stuck for a spanish word, I usually take the English word and add an -o or -a (or -ado, -ando or -amente depending on context) to the end of it. Most of the time it works out

Re: Does anyone want to believe (online reviews)
There's a number of factors I take into account when reading an online review:
1. How many reviews has the author written?
2. What type of username does the author use.
3. Is the author American?
So if you have a low number or this is the only review; have a username of xxxdsfskfjdsh123; and/or are an entitled American who does not know how to behave in a civilised society, then I'm going to ignore the review.
hmmmm, off to do the same thing the the OSi data set...

Re: Affordability my arse
I was expecting "cheap looking" and I wasn't disappointed
Also in the news...
Hedge Funds who hoped to make a killing by short-selling Nokia have been heavily hit. Figures are indicating that they've probably lost in the region of $640m with Discovery Capital Management LLC being the biggest casualty.
I want to know why these devices need to know the time in the first place??? Okay, I am aware that my oven can be set to come on at a particular time but I've never used that function and don't know anyone that does. My slow cooker has a better idea- you can tell it to come on x number of hours and minutes from now- no need for it to know the time AND be changed twice a year then the clocks go back/forwards.

Re: Bugger Guinness
or even better- Oul Dubh
Re: good things come to those who wait
@Loyal Commenter- yep, I live in Dublin- you might want to read my previous post regarding craft beer in Ireland.
But Guinness hasn't been an Irish company for many years (some would say that it was never an Irish company in the first place). And now they are owned by Diageo, they've no claim to Irishness.
Re: good things come to those who wait
Even here in Ireland (the home of Guinness*) there are much better stouts and porters. Try O'Hara's Leann Follain, Dungarvan's Blackrock stout, Trouble Brewing's Dark Arts, 8 Degrees Knockmealdown Porter. And Hooker Brewery are releasing their Napoleon Stout nationwide.
*Guinness marketing hype. Everyone in the industry knows that they are a UK company.
instead of the nice payout she was expecting, she's now the poster child for "don't buy counterfeit goods". Along with the electric chinese gentleman.
Re: Does anyone know
once, while stateside, a nice cop let me sit in the back of his black and white and order. For some unknown reason you can only order at drive-thru's after a certain time.
Why can't the bigger artists (read- those with control over their music) start their own service? Pay "fairer" rates to encourage others to sign up with them and generally take control of the whole situation. Instead of just whinging about something someone else did.
This will wind up the "if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear" brigade

I'm guessing they've finally heard the rumours about the iWatch and want to be seen as the "market influencers" and "market predictors". The problem with this is no one ever really calls them on it when they are wrong.
Maybe El Reg should add the disclaimer "and remember, these people also predicted the 5m rise of the smart watch" to any future PR from them.
The strange thing is a Dutch Oven and a slow cooker are essentially the same thing.
My wife needed a new printer. So I got her one for her birthday. Was not well received...
Surely a decent POS system should alert when stock on shelf gets low- "60 boxes of cornflakes sold in last half hour- Send ZittoTron to check volume on shelf"
The MacBooks are now just as crap to connecting to wifi as their iDevice stable-mates...

"I don't think Charlie Chaplin was a big fan of Adolf Hitler:"
Though the reverse was true.
Tip to future whistleblowers...
Go to Ecuador first, THEN blow the whistle.
Same thing happened to me. I signed up for a course looking forward to lots of programming only to find I was also required to do Business Studies (yawn) and ancient database techniques. And correcting the guy who was teaching us DBase.
Re: I'm sure there were two girls on my degree course
There was one on mine. She was a muslim girl and she got pulled from the course when her parents "found out" that she had been talking to non-muslim boys.
Re: The scary thing...
Is anyone really surprised? There was a reason why there's an ex-CIA and an ex-DARPA on the board of Facebook.
