Here's an idea...
what if it's a chimera- designed to take other satellites out. Then North Korea can just say 'whoops- sorry, the satellite entered an unstable orbit and accidentally took out a spook spy cam'.
...one of the first Anonymous actions that I actively approve of.
Re: The Artist's themselves are kinda too blame...
True- there is always an exception to the rule (Billy Bragg also comes to mind). The downside is the 'artists with integrity' percentage is so low that it doesn't even feature as a blip on the record labels yearly profit forecasts.
Re: Angered down in Anchorage
Certainly appears to be the mindset of the head guy at Pandora:
The Artist's themselves are kinda too blame...
...it seems that most artists are only in the industry hoping that a record label will drive a huge dump truck full of money and tip it onto their front lawn.
And then there are the 'artists'; in which case it's the managers that are hoping a record label will drive a huge dump truck of money...
The Real Story here...
...is that some people are still using CorelDraw and Quark.
Though never a Delphi programmer (a C/C++ programmer from the Turbo days) I just haven't bothered updating since XE1. I remember that they threw in RadPHP (or whatever it was called) for free- I looked at it once and never again.
Re: Stupid people always want something to blame
It's no even an off-the-shelve Tom-Tom in some cases- it's whatever piece of SatNav crap Lidl/Adli last had on sale.
I did it a couple of years ago when QR codes first appeared. My QR code just redirected to a website that had the message "stop buying useless crap"
Howard The Duck...
Finally available on Netflix!!!
Do chess games count???
For the sheer WTF- Psion's 1k ZX80/81 Chess.
Yes, and Loderunner
Re: I feel it must be said
Let's start a petition to get this as the official theme tune for the new film
Re: US Patient Office
You forgot: Crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
The list seems very confused.
Motorola screwed over Psion, effectively killing them. Now Google are screwing over Motorola. Karma's a bitch...
Re: "Apple's aura of perfection..."
Agreed- My iPod 4th generation has run like a shot donkey since I've installed IOS 6. It sucks (and not just the maps) and there's no way back to IOS 5.
Re: Secondlife Is still Alive.
The main fail of SL is it is shit (as pointed out further up thread). The only people that are still there are complete saddos who are trying to convince themselves that it will become relevant again.
and as for "IOS ease of use" my 6 year old daughter had absolutely no problem finding her way around a Galaxy Tab the first time she held one.
Re: Don't talk to me about...
I seem to remember that they short two of the pins in their un-serial cable.
Re: An Adventure...
yeah, I think we need to get Gil the Arm on this one.
Re: Ipad as generic name for tablet
my six year old has asked for a Samsung Tab 2. She thinks it's more superior to mummy's iPad.
in some cases, quite literally shit.
Facebook can't even be trusted with people's day-to-day information, do you really want them getting your credit cards details as well???
Re: Mind you, there are still authors having great fun...
ah, the story that's going nowhere and taking ages to get there. Populated by identical characters but with different hairstyles. All available in 3 emotions (but mainly angry).
Re: Dandy, Beano, 2000 AD to Mad Magazine
V For Vendetta??? Shit film, but still based on a UK comic character
Re: Well, I miss...
And don't forget Dimensional Transmogrifiers- they turn 3d kittens into 2d kittens.
bring back DR and Quinch
Re: Four words
I bought that for my daughters 10th birthday.
Re: Totally agree
For me, it was Starlord. I only started reading 2000AD when it merged. Strontium Dog and Robusters (and to a certain extent the ABC Warriors) all started there.
Reminds me of the time I had to "fix" an ancient laptop (which only had a 800x600 display). The browser was so clogged with extra tool bars that the webpages only appeared in a tiny window (I'd say about 200px high) at the bottom of the screen.
Re: What will happen...
however they all seem to be perfectly happy with snogging vampires.
Re: 30 something perma techie Brit here
Solder = Solder (not 'sodder', don't you see that L there?)
Though that brings to mind something completely different.
Re: One could always ask Doc Brown
I doubt Stephen Rae could have ruined V for Vendetta any more than it was already ruined.
Re: He's right but for the wrong reason
I've always said that we could easily have a mass cull of the stupid simply by having their satnavs work out when they are heading eastwards on Beachy Head and then issuing the direction "Turn Right Now"
"Get your hands of my junk!"
Re: Ah, geeks
...that theres is a place called Pikeyville in redneck country.
Re: First of many
Blame Ticketbastard- they started it.
Don't forget the 'crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwich'- apparently patentable
Re: Couple of $$$?
I saw Skyfall on opening night and it cost me €18 for two of us.
Prior to that I took my youngest daughter to see Brave on a Saturday morning and it cost €7.50.
Re: People like this obviously never took "critical thinking 101".
Did you not notice that the people in question are septics?
Re: I wonder how he feels
My thoughts precisely- I understand the suit alone cost $200,000. Wouldn't this money be better spent saving the planet?
Re: New Star Wars trilogy planned - why?
You forgot "Howard The Duck" (the reason Lucas sold ILM/Pixar to Jobs)
Re: Refund Time?
No- and believe me, I've tried.
"The Register concluded that the record did not support an extension of the exemption to 'tablet' devices,"
WTF El Reg, you are a news website not an arbiter of copyright cases...
Re: I really want to like the Daniel Craig films
"Casino Royale (Daniel Craig) is an hour long poker game because the book is largely a poker game."
You might want to reread the book- it wasn't poker.
