It's not Apple making them - Nor are they being made on behalf of Apple.
How much would it have fetched if it was 88?
8 being considered the luckiest number in China..
The Splatoon Amiibo characters (available at extra cost of course) are meant to add new game modes, however what that amounts too I will not know until I get home from work and get to try my copy that should have arrived with the squid Amiibo :)
Down voted for 'They are written in a good style, and tend to be interesting and informative'
That used to be the case. Now I'm just here out of habit.
At least you didn't repeat the spin/mis-reporting of your colleague:
'The bods behind the Guinness World Records has awarded Xiaomi one of its certificates for selling the most mobile phones within a single day.'
If you look at the certificate it actually reads 'Most mobile phones sold on a single online platform in 24 hours' therefore where you say '..mostly to online buyers' should probably read '..all to online buyers' and the quoted sentence above needs qualifying too.
I used to expect better from El Reg but this appears to be a(nother) not-really-news worthy event spun into an attempt to start a comment war which is probably good for your advertising revenue eh?
Only if Apple make the phone apparently..
'But oddly, it really doesn't sound like that bad an idea....'
Except the name of course..
Classic Moss :)
'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.
