'No Highlander 2 and 3?'
Thought 3 was okay if you ignore the fact that 2 exists however it has been years since I watched it.
IIRC 2 seemed to be a victim of the 'global warming' media circus that predated the 'climate change' media circus.
Bit more recent, but went to see 'Scott Pilgrim vs the world' to find it sold out - ended up watching first of 'The Expendables' :(
Will not give the sequels the time of day.
'We don’t think we are any brighter than, say, Amazon or the BBC'
Except that Amazon is a 'full width' website rather than this column in middle of page that El Reg insists upon keeping. Arguably the BBC is a full width website too, at least they make good use of the white side columns.
Having said that *Please* do not go back to those f*sking whole of page sponsorship ads you run, they suck balls and not in a good way. I've no doubt you will though :(
'Pictures and headlines in stories and the “hero pic’ at the top of the front page are too big, making for unnecessary scrolling.'
<sarcasm> Just a tad </sarcasm>
Looks a lot like a camera lens to me too, larger than necessary for light sensor and looks enough like a lens for the uninitiated masses to also think that is what it is too.
Very poor design decision IMO if it is in fact not a camera lens.
iPad [Air?] Plus, shirley? in line with the larger iPhone...
If you have an Apple TV the chances are you have another Apple device.
If you do then the chances are that the other device can run the Apple Remote app.
If it can then you type using the keyboard in the app.
Bang. On. :)
Not quite the same as constant monitoring though is it?
Don't take it personally, just rabid Apple haters that wish it wasn't true and/or cannot see truth due to being blinded their own hatred.
This will get down votes too.
And The Register, Fandroids, Commentards, etc..
'Are you the Syrian Electronic Army?'
'Syrian Electronic Army. We're the Electronic Army of Syria!....'
Invalid? Not necessarily, just that they were not infringed.
Have you seen one?
Reversible and no where near as flimsy or fiddly are some good ones for starters.
cannot believe the article author did not pick up on that.. lol, I knew I could not be the only one
I try to discover
A little something to make me sweeter
Oh baby refrain from breaking my heart
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason
Why you're making me work so hard
That you give me no.. [x4]
..soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease give a little respect toooooooo ooo ooo me!
Wait,.. not that kind of erasure?
it was for pre-Atom netbooks (the original EEE for example). The Atom powered ones the vendors wanted about the same money for as a cheap 'full' laptop. :(
For the above post 'is' = 'are' ;-)
..what the T&C's of living in one of those houses is... or the conditions around leaving..
is for written words not spoken.. speech recognition not an issue here, though fancy/decorative fonts might be..
Yes DJ 2 knows that.
And the Journo should have known that the sentence was open to misinteritation or the pun DJ 2 made.
That'll teach you to not say 'that'll learn you'
Trust me, I have just been to China, they are *very* motivated by money.
Nah... Pink's not my colour.
And besides I prefer surgical gloves.
There probably isn't much left you could 'invent' doing with a pink Marigold that has not been tried by somebody already...
Devil... as if that needs explaining :)
I am at work currently so will have to read the no doubt interesting recipes above later, however all posters so far have failed because a page search shows no references to Marmite!
'I had a 200m G-Shock crap out on me in the shower, once, for exactly that reason.'
Waterproof or not, I would take my watch off before getting in the shower.
Fit PC (http://www.fit-pc.com/web/) have been in the tiny PC game for a few years now. I purchased one of the early models years ago but looks like they have come a long way since..
If you are considering the NUC or Brix then you should also look at the Fit PC options.
can't spell, but don't care
Indeed, my thoughts while reading this are that HBOS (or even the half dozen UK banks mentioned) failing in a traditional way is not responsible for the worldwide ressesion we have been/are experiencing.
Not saying the government are taking the correct actions, but when do they ever?
COBOL is dead, an even in places where it does not look like it is dead it should very much be considered a zombie...
Tape I have no opinion on...
And because Apple designed the chip, Samsung just make it..
I think he's just going for gold..
"Yeah, they go for the wallet instead knowing this person hasn't spent all their cash on a mediocre phone."
Or not, cause if you cannot afford an iPhone then is the wallet worth having?
They are probably still trying to work out how to apply the kind of creative accounting the other multinationals are getting away with...
'a campaign that has seen him talking to business leaders around the globe and reaching the conclusion that big business really isn't interested in little people.'
Could have told him that for free!
Kind of reads like the polar opposite of one of Andrew's articles (in terms of sentiment), I guess he must be a different breed of 'Capitalist bastard'...
Because of course there wasn't any Android phones released in that same 12 week period...
"The publishing companies should already be passing on far more than this in the savings they make in not having to produce physical copies (and perhaps take into account that DRM protected ebooks can't be left on a park bench for someone else to read)"
You'd think wouldn't you... but no, corporate greed comes in to play and publishers just see currency symbols in front of their eyes...
Not read all yet, leaving work now so will read at home but have a quick question..
Is there anything new in the software/EPG that could not be delivered via a firmware update to the older FoxSat? Mine still works fine and forking out another (nearly) £300 for this seems bit much..
Have been expecting 4od support forever and if this box does (eventually) get it but the Foxsat doesn't I will not be chuffed!
Upvoted because you are right and I for the life of me I cannot understand why you have received a downvote.
I came here to mention the Kickstarter project too - which, as the price is in dollars, is actually cheaper even with international shipping than the phillips - the problem is they have sold out ages ago..
They have got more than 13 x their desired funding though so should be able to keep going after the project has ended
'be wary of any man who keeps a pig farm'
Apple designed the chips, they simply get Samsung to make them (currently).
"Astute readers will have noticed that if all one's socks are black, and of the same cut, then surely the maintenance of each relationship isn't important"
Actually no. I used to think like this and brought same style socks for that reason. However as implied by the mention in the article of the apps use of the camera, socks fade, especially black ones, and randomly matching same style black socks will end up with 'pairs' that are very different shades (A slap is waiting for anybody that mentions '50' and 'grey' in reply to this!).
I like this idea.. does need to be quite a bit cheaper though!
And music. Or just mirror the screen if desired.* And not just to Apple TV boxes, there are many non-Apple speaker systems, AV boxes and more that can receive Airplay. How many TVs have NFC?
Although it might take 2 or 3 taps on the idevice screen to turn on Airplay, you do not need to get up and walk across the other side of the room to do it! The receivers just need to be on the same network as the iDevice, no real 'setup' required.
*yes, yes, a 'newer' Apple device is required for mirroring, iPhone 4s, iPad2 or later
And as for NFC payments, unlocking doors, etc how long will it take for the underworld to develop a cloning device? (I would not be surprised to hear that one already exists!)
...was in the app store even before iOS 6 was released - which also replaces the native Youtube app as well as the maps app.
iOS user's usage data is clearly still quite important to Google and I do not believe for one moment that they do not have an iOS map app ready or almost ready to go as soon as they think the time is right for them to release it.
Of course they are enjoying the media attention that this is generating and waiting for the handful of people that will actually switch to Android merely because of that.. but once the fuss has died down Google would be daft to just ignore what is still a huge chunk of the market - regardless of the Android 'market share lead' Schmidt was keen to remind people of.
'NFC is a plus. Even if it goes predominantly unused, it's there if you need it. For example, I've used the camera on my phone roughly seven times. Once for a video. Not too bothered that it's there, but it'd be crap to be without it on those moments I may need it. Same goes for NFC.'
camera, yes but please describe a stituation where you would 'need' NFC?
Seriously - there is a group trying promote NFC that are in desperate need of examples because even they have not discovered any killer applications for it yet.
Paying for things? maybe one day but shop uptake needs to take off in a big way first. Not to mention the security needs improving (See Pwned SIII story) and could only be described as useful if you've accidentally left your cash AND bank cards at home.
File transfer? (as mentioned in the main article) have you heard of a popular little (cross platform) app called Bump?
It's not even the first 'advert' they have had for Ninite on El Reg..
That said, I do feel it is worth spreading the word about this very useful tool.
