Re: Never attribute to malice what can be explained by incompetence.
It's GDS so we could probably assume it's mostly stupidity going by their previous history.

I usually find cruise control kills any good mpg you may be able to achieve. It's designed to maintain your speed not give you good mpg.
... this has got BOFH written all over it, this is the mother load, he could extort the whole of the management and director tier probably.
Completely agree, there is no such thing as a free lunch.
I tend to ignore most ads unless they interfere with my scrolling ability on a mobile device. I've been suffering from banner blindness since the term was first coined.
As someone mentioned earlier, perhaps this is the stick we all need to get advertisers to produce non intrusive ads.
At the end of the day, it's IT, it won't be long before someone finds a workaround, whack-a-mole with Advertisers.
The fact that you used intelligence and humanity in the same sentence as parliamentary conservatives I'd say yes to the faith question.
... Apple is just arguing the toss on price, it's what Apple does, I'm assuming the lower FRAND license cost means bigger profit margin per unit regardless of whether they have to throw a few millions at it in court to get that price. In the long term they would make those court case costs back on unit sales.
... because while this is all rumbling on and they have happily washed their hands of any responsibility, the £185,000 is earning them some interest.
... 'nuff said
I probably should have saved that one to read this afternoon, my stomach feels like is could contribute something else for the Zayo folk to walk through now.
No, not really.
Glad GDS have been spanking my tax money on expensive coffee and iThingys for them to play with in their swish Westminister offices.
I got the reverse, I sold a basic scanner for 2 cargo space and if I wanted to buyback the scanner I would have made a 4 billion profit on the cargo space. At that point I thought something has definitely gone wrong.
Now if only something like that could happen in real life, I would definitely abuse it without a second thought.
... with this,
"Vulture Central's backroom gremlins still maintain that using Instagram filters is like looking at the world through a pair of urine-filled swimming goggles."
"New keyboard needed"
Right, can I go home now....
Bruce Willis is on his way as a backup solution, just as soon as his flight arrives.... oh wait....
I appreciate what you are trying to achieve, the layout is fine but you probably could have soften the blow by not flipping to so much stark white, as this is part of a phased approach I would have maybe phased your colour change in as well.
Look forward to what else you may do.
Out of professional interest, any chance you could share things like wireframes etc to see your thinking behind the changes (understand if you can't due to commercial sensitivity).
@AC You need to be careful talking about addiction, nicotine maybe in the same class as caffeine but that too can also be addictive. Addiction can come in more than one form, just because it isn't physically addictive doesn't mean it can't be psychologically.
Quite a lot of the main stream vaporisers and cartomisers are brands produced by the major tobacco firms anyway. At no point were they going to let the nicotine market out of their grasp. If they aren't selling it directly in their own product then they are probably supplying the tobacco leaves by the bundle to other companies for their vap liquids, either way they will adapt quickly to the new market which by the looks of it is heading for a boom.
I can't see anything I'd disagree with in this review. From my perspective I've seen a massive improvement in quality but that is only because I have upgraded from a Note 2.
My only regret is that I'm now hooked on the stylus, if Samsung ever decide to stop the Note series my life is screwed I rely on it so much. I even have a Note 10.1, these are the only things I use now, with a combination of S Note and Evernote for writing things down.
Now if I could just get the postman to digitise my mail I would be in digital heaven and trees would love me (the paper industry wouldn't).
Thanks for the beer tips folks, I will definitely try some next time I hop over the pond.
@phil dude, I gave you a downvote, I was with you all the way up until you dissed the beer, I find it extremely hard to believe that the Americans have figured out how to brew a decent ale yet ;-)
... I'd like to see a report with survival stats for these Tech City startups. I wouldn't be surprised if the high number of tech startups is close to the amount that go bust/fail.
"There was undoubtedly a "you keep making it and we'll keep buying it" understanding, even if not in writing..." even if that was true they still deserved to fail, if it's not in writing it doesn't mean anything.
Sounds just like all the other expansions Blizz have done for WoW, they get them sorted eventually and usually within a couple of weeks.
Going back to earlier in the thread someone mentioned about unfinished games, I think the general rule with all games now is don't pay any premium for 'early access' and give it a couple of weeks after release before installing/playing it.
It's quite common I think, my son watches more stampylongnose videos on Minecraft than he plays the game, don't quite get the appeal myself but then I don't think I'm the intended demographic.
How do you know it wasn't? Did you test it by asking what it would do if it came across a turtle on its back in the desert ;-)
I wonder if this is related to someone trying to reset my password for FB this morning. Thankfully my gmail has 2FA so won't rush into a blind panic to reset my password.
... hoover wars, someone let Craig Charles know.
A +1 just because of the mention of a beast of a classic like the Trabant, gotta love communist engineering.
Why do you think Dragons died out...
It was a stupid business model anyway. They should be commissioning content from production houses not building up the infrastructure to make their own, far too many overheads involved that come with too many risks. Content providers the likes of Netflix, Amazon and Xbox should stick with just comissioning gives them more flexibility and less production risk.
Wankers the lot of'em... that is all.
This thread seems more about willies than Ikea and street names.
... but the graphic in the article looks like 'Hotel and wellness' means getting a hand shandy from a masseur, no doubt that would definitely lend something to wellness.
... is too blur Blair entirely, anything that takes him out of circulation is good in my book.
So you are basically proposing a real life size version of Scalextric, can the drivers stand by the side of the track with a trigger controller ;-)
Looks pretty scary to me, especially if they are using them in a ballistic manor. One route master double decker launched on the steam catapult at your enemy, maybe fill it with school children because they are a nightmare on public transport in packs.
(I mention steam catapults but I can't remember if they were being installed or not).
... if it was designed to jump off the baggage carousel and barge it's way past people, would save me having to do it.
You should have saved that one for tomorrow because I have a really bad Monday careless attitude going on today. (which means the wife will hate me and my son will love me this evening).
But is there any photos of inside the 'pod' and a spec of what it can do etc.
"Would it still be a drone if controlled directly by an operator using a live feed from a camera?" That would also apply to the military use of drones as well then.
I think you need to recognise that the use of the word drone in modern language means a semi autonomous vehicle that has an operator for remote use (or words to that effect). We tend to bastardise our words once the media has got hold of them (e.g. hacker, what it means now isn't quite what the word originally described). Sorry what I should have said was the media bastardise our words and batter us with them so much that their original meaning ends up being lost.
Just a couple of critical questions... what colour are the beans and what magic do they posses?
Are you leaving...? Don't suppose you're going past the shop are you, I'm feeling a bit peckish...
... this could be the nearest he'll ever get to one.
If you don't want to buy another rucksack the Gorilla from Power Traveller also has an optional fold out solar panel that you can attach to your rucksack to charge the hefty 6 x 3500mAh with a range of 5V - 24V and has enough connectors that you can charge more devices than you would want to take to a festival. We have a complete ban on buying any more rucksacks, I'm drowning in them.
Probably one of these most used bits of kit in our house (besides the devices that have been used and need charging of course).
... about it not being endemic, bollocks I say, this is exactly the right word to use for something all public sector organisations seem to do, pour very rich gravy and see how many companies come flocking for a slurp in a non-risk way through a badly written contract.
Nuke'em from orbit it's the only way to be sure...
I agree, something I always noticed as a kid is how violently fast doors close in Star Wars, I think it even produced a couple of nightmares. No doubt Harrison will probably be suffering from similar now.
I wonder how HGTG Marvin would describe the Star Wars doors, they are hardly depressing ;-)
"Does your head actually think the thoughts you write, or are your fingers connected to some random thought generator?"
I think his arse cheeks are wrapped round his head which might have interfered with his thought processes, it's the only explanation I can think of for the crap he just spewed forth.
Sound is already captured separately so this wouldn't affect them at all. The only time it becomes a problem is for journo's doing news pieces where they tend to record sound on camera rather than separately, it just means they have to record sound to camera and dub it over later which just adds a bit to turn around time for quick news items.
Indeed, I won't be surprised if one of the teams names it's system Skynet.
... pressure can be brought to bear on anyone who doesn't do as they are told, let's face it we are talking about an organisation that can operate well above or below the law as it sees fit, sounds like too much of a conspiracy, but then so did rendition flights but they happened.
I'm not saying they do this of course, I'm just saying don't rule anything out when talking about GCHQ and pals, they have a lot of resources available to them.
Nothing new so to speak, Above and Beyond had this, but unfortunately it was the early days of this genre and it was competing with EVE as they both launched at similar times. Unfortunately EVE had better graphics which means Above and Beyond had to shut down due to lack of players, I think everyone got a free transfer to EVE if they wanted it.
Shame really Above and Beyond had a lot of potential and given time could have been really good.
