Re: A pair of cans which cancels out those noises entirely would be worth a lot of money.

Apply directly to child and it will sleep through the flight.....
Me too....I don't remember any adverts stating that they weren’t bothering with that any more so one must assume 'one in front' is still ongoing...
I've had very few problems with Lollipop on my Nexus 4. About the only annoying things are
Occasionally it will use an unfeasible amount of battery for no reason. A reboot fixes this but shows that the battery level is actually a lot lower than the reported prior to reboot.
Sometimes Now launcher does not launch and Im stuck with a blank screen - again, a reboot (or sometimes launching camera or phone from the lock screen) sorts this out
I bought a previous gen Revo with Linux. Sadly Asus couldn't be bothered to sort out a wireless driver, so despite being advertised as having wireless it actually didn't, unless you sorted it out yourself or installed a proper distro. Also the eeepc shipped with a Linux abomination.
No wonder Linux gets a bad press when manufacturers make such an unforgivable hash of it. They should just ship without an OS as you're going to have to replace whatever crud they drop on in place of windows.
Simply driving to pretty much any diner in the Mississippi Delta would be a challenge from pretty much any part of the UK...
Aye - they had one on PM...Eddie Mair pointed out that if a customer missed a payment the bank would charge them £6, and asked why customers shouldn't invoice that bank for a similar amount...
Answers ranged from "we will make sure customers are not out of pocket" all the way up to "that would not be appropriate"....which tells you all you need to know.
There needs to be a run on RBS.
I'm avoiding Lloyds/HBOS. I closed my IF account and credit card over a year ago. Since then they've sent me a NEW credit card...noone can tell me what account that was linked to and how it was sent, and have now started sending me statements for an account that no longer exists and understandably has no transactions....
I remember when the last gen RangeRover was being tested the magazine hack in question found that the gear selector was power-assisted, and if you selected reverse at 70mph the system would helpfully comply, with hilarious results.
Actually you have that wrong. My Pebble STEEL is made of metal and has a battery life of over a week. "quite charming in an unfinished retro kind of way, but an anachronism whose time has already passed." would apply to those items that need a brightly coloured screen to attract owners, but have a battery life measured in hours....
Plus lets bear in mind that a fairly high percentage of people on this site probably got their first taste of computing on the Spectrum
Also its very, very expensive to build. You watch a Range Rover being glued and riveted together by huge robots, and watch Defenders being built by hand - they even have to align the headlamps still. They're mainly toys now, sold to rich city boys.
I suspect the line will find its way to India, when manual labour is cheaper, and then some will find themselves imported. Dunno where the legislation thats killing the Defender leaves Santana though (assuming they still make Defender-esque vehicles)
You get traffic for free on Waze, as well as speed cameras, incident reports and I think fuel prices (it asks for them anyway if it suspects you're at a petrol station)...dunno about multi-county but I assume so.
Nissan and Renault are pretty much the same group these days I surprised that the NCAP rating came as a surprise...
But you still have to pay the £170.00 before you even get the CHANCE to see what Sky or Virgin have to offer.
I was more objecting to you dismissing Tata as a maker of tin cans to be honest
You do KNOW that Tata owns Jaguar and Landrover, dont you? And that tech and methods are already filtering through from JLR to Tata Motors own brand?
Im using openELEC. Kodi seems to have been replaced with a new project specifically for Pi. Didn't like the UI, plus half the things I tried to do were 'not currently supported', right down to the generic IR remote which worked in openELEC without issue.
Streetwise was DESIGNED to be able to deal with the knocks of city life hence the black bumpers - it never tried to pretend to be a softroader - hence the name.
Seeing as it cost buttons to develop, probably cost less that a 25 to build and sold at a premium (the older drivers especially liked the raised access) Streetwise was actually no bad thing.
Im assuming Golem, like Alice, is playing in London.
You'd be AMAZED at how little use this is to the bulk of us who don't live in London. Any chance of slumming it at provincial theatres where most of your readers have to go for culture?
Nexus 4 - no problem with Google play or camera. The current biggest power drain is Firefox. HOWEVER My 2012 Nexus 7 had a real perform with Play Services draining the battery so that did get rooted.
I once got told off on Crewe station for forgetting to switch the tail light of my bike off. I did point out if this was an issue they should have a sign up because how the hell am I supposed to know its a problem?
Yes. As long as your phone manufacturer (not Google) allows you to unlock the boot loader.
I've had three Nexus devices, two of which I've rooted (and Google did nothing to stop me rooting them, and even helped me find the instructions and software to help), and installed a non-google android build on, and then OPTIONALLY installed all the googly goodness I wanted.
Or you could use the Amazon app store or side-load...Google wont stop you
You're on your way to pick the kids up from school, you stop to fill up with petrol only to find that the bank is having a hiccup and you can't pay...and the garage doesn't really want you to leave without paying.
Once up a time you could have whipped out your chequebook, but the garage probably does not even take cheques. Theres no branch round the corner that you could pop to because its now a trendy wine bar, and the cash machine wont let you have money either. This is the way the banks wanted it, so yes, when they screw up and you have no viable fallback then people have a RIGHT to kick off and expect the problem to be solved NOW.
I thought it was just me. I'd make the effort of I thought she has anything useful to say but it always seems to be IT (very) lite
I've told them the information about whether or not I need a licence is not available for free, that there is a cost (and a requirement to book an appointment) for their goons getting entry to my house and DARED them multiple times to take me to court and get reamed out for my costs when they lose.
I dont feel the need to support Capitas business model for free - they can pay for the privilege.
Yes but the 3 will probably have dropped 6k or more in those 3 years. If MG have decided they can't be bothered any more (and they have yet to show any signs that they CAN be bothered, or indeed that they can run a car company at all in the recognised sense of the word) and pull out it'll be worth scrap value.
I've moved two XP-ers to Mint Mate - no support calls or problems of any sort.
But thats just how Maplin USED to be...a few fairly big stores that you travelled to, or mail ordered from the catalogue. Then they opened everywhere and started specialising in tat. Why would I go to Maplin to buy a folding ladder or a window cleaning set for heavens sake?
I'll believe it when I see it tbh....
SAIC.... Because they've done such a sterling job with MG....
"The radio alone is worth paying the TV License fee for."
Its not - its really, really not....the quality drop in Radio 4 over the last 10 years is staggering. Not much science, and a lot of what there is is pop-sci lite. LOTS of cheap social stuff like "The Listening Project" and Saturday Live - lightweight trash to allow people who are not broadcasters for a reason a chance to tell you about their tedious lives for free.
Of COURSE there will be lower insurance premiums... The insurance companies are ALWAYS looking at ways to give us more for less....
I get what I assume is crema, but it's very dependent on what coffee I'm using.
I'm amazed noone has mentioned Aeropress, so I will.
Fantastic coffee and because the grounds come out as a puck that you can pop straight from the press into the bin there's very little mess. And it's small and cheap enough to have one at home and one at the office.
If he does watch BBC stuff on Netflix then he's paying Netflix you idiot
Of course body shops will be able to men's minor dents and scratches - and more. They've been fixing Landrovers for decades.
I'd say Landrover have been quite clever more than Jag....LR have used aluminium since they started, in fact that's why Landrover was invented....
Thank God the Chinese did NOT get Rover. MGR leased the brand from Ford so they could never build a Rover badged 4x4.
Amusingly SAIC failed to realise this and specced a load of grilles etc to take the Rover shield, and were promptly told to piss off. This is why they invented Roewe, with its sheild shaped badge.
Rover is back where it belongs, sleeping quietly at Solihull. MG, on the other hand, is utterly, utterly screwed.
You could say most of that about Maplin as well...
All the XP machines that I support now run Mint 17.1 - Its an LTS release and is good till 2019....MATE means that anyone used to XP is happy in minutes.
Theres a completely different record for cars with driven wheels.
This is an engineering challenge that is involving schools, universities etc. Its also a great adventure. Noone has EVER done this before and I think it'll be not only the largest ever numerical increase in the land speed record, but the largest percentage increase as well.
Anyway, designed in Britain, engineered as far as possible in Britain, Jaguar fuel pump, Eurofighter jet engine...hoe much more British do you want?
Probably becuase of 'Let it Go'. Even in its own context its an uplifting, power-ballady type of thing that effectively carries the whole film.
O2s crappy network, with GiffGaffs crappy systems glued on too so double the chance of outages as far as I could see.
Plus crowdsourced technical support. Cheap but not very cheerful.
I went from O2 to 3 via (shudder) GiffGaff.
3 have been cheaper and much, much better.
Agreed - that pretty much told us nothing. A complete waste of time.
Plusnet store your Login details in plaintext, and will email your password out to you happily.
If you question this they will tell you that the password database has no connection to the internet so is perfectly safe - nothing can possibly go wrong. How they send your password out to you if this is true is a mystery....
You can get light switches where the switch covers virtually the whole plate. The UK light switch is as big as it is so it uses the same box as the UK power socket, which is as big as it is to take a UK 13 amp plug.
Its actually NOT unusable on Android. Its my browser of choice on Android....
"Consider this: Who buys a British car for its engineering?"
Well JLR sold 425,006 in 2013 - up 19%...
If thats a KV6 lets hope it wasn't the first gen one - more Kettle than Kool.
They understand perfectly - as long as they use it as 'catchup' and not to watch 'live' broadcast then TVL can do one, as they 'do not have a TV'.
