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.
Re: Do you expect me to talk?
"Do you expect me to go grey, Goldfinger?"
"No Mr Bond, I expect you to dye!"
Re: I would say one thing...
That's the idea though- they make you pay for the full-whack RAM and HHD options up front rather than hope you will upgrade them in the future (in which case they hope you will just buy a new Macbook)
Re: So analysts are wrong....
I'm guessing that they are still using goat entrails in order to make their predictions.
Remember, you can't spell Analyst without "anal"
Re: Apple, buy it more than once
are you asking if the iPad mini runs iOS6???
Re: Science is not democracy
We are talking about a people whom a large amount of support the 'theory' of Creationism.
Agreed, bond needed something iconic, not 'it's popular right now'
...is a little more than just chips and gravy- You forgot the curds.
Re: "Uninterruptible patsy supply"
how about 'an elaborate trooll'
"ignoring Du’s pleas that it was a big fuss over nothing"
Or "Much a-Du about nothing"...
Re: Bad casting
a Felix Lighter can often be found in a car.
I think you've just posted the ideal skillset required for any management chappy.
...there's always OpenLeaks...
"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.
Re: Public vs Private
or maybe private bodies are more careful when it comes to protecting customer data.
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.
Re: double bluff?
they will, it's called IOS6
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.
Re: So that what it does
"How do you kill that which has no life?"
Re: How did he end up being a candidate for the jury?
First thing that came to my mind too...
I'm pretty sure that was a short horror story by Clive Barker.
Isn't that a tautology?
"Nice Remote Telepresence Unit"- Steve Wozniak
I'm surprised the co-worker didn't get sacked for coercion.
What I want to know, is how did the management find out that "too much" chocolate had been added?
The correct term is 'MuckSlurry'
"No publicity is bad publicity!"
So, if you published that you had genital herpes, do you believe that would get you more girlfriends?
"One frequently overlooked aspect of the major label model is that successful artists subsidise the less successful"
I think that should read:
"One frequently overlooked aspect of the major label model is that successful artists subsidise the board and major investors"
just plain old dub.
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
Re: I'd like to know why the price is rising
yep- Dead Cat Bounce. Those that sold short are currently buying to cover their trades.
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.'
Reminds me of South Park
Cartman: "It does email and web browsing and s**ts in Kyle's mouth? This is the greatest thing ever invented."
Re: Worth paying more...
I think he's talking about Torrisons or Taitrose.
I don't think I'm affected...
...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.
Re: RE: the title of the article
Don't you mean Sandman? (Watchmen was Alan Moore)
To paraphrase Harry Hill...
Well, I like perogis; But I also like patatas revolconas. But which one is better? There's only one way to find out...
> The Council had arranged for a man, known only as 'GS'
I wonder if his middle initial is '4'...
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.
...if AMC could get that in place before the premier of series 3 of The Walking Dead, I'd be happy.
or a loo brush...
4 and a half hours to tighten a bolt...
...they must be trainee plumbers or mechanics. And I suppose there was parts charged as well as labour.
Reminds me of another floater...
as they say, you can't polish a turd but you can roll it in glitter.
It's not that organic food is better...
...it's more due to processed food being much worse for you.
Don't feed the troll.
