Re: When this happened to Blackberry...
When this happened to Blackberry it was a damn sight longer than a few hours and it RIM claim to be primarily for business.
Until a single ticket to the pictures costs around 50 quid I don't think you can compare the 2.
I don't think you can put a privately funded and produced movie in the same league as stuff that comes out of Hollywood. Given the fan funding context it actually doesn't look that bad from what I've seen.
Re: What's ICT?
Inverness Caledonian Thistle. The side that gave us the wonderful headline "Super Caley went ballistic, Celtic were atrocious" when they beat Celtic in a cup game some years back.
Been there, seen it
Has already been done. When I clicked on the story I thought it was something new. The other issue I have with these 2 is... Did they seriously charge the salvation army to advertise on their faces? They charged a charity? Studying to be bankers are they?
Here's me thinking I was the only Stopfordian who read El Reg.
It's like a Glasgow kiss, but they're a bit softer in Lanarkshire.
What's more shocking
Is the fact that the MEN actually did some (reasonable) journalism.
Despite you rejecting my first comment
$326.47 + $9.81 still doesn't add up to $336.27
You should go to jail for referencing that dreadful song.
Without looking it up myself
I'm fairly sure they're both on the EMI label. Amazing how a random song chosen to compete against the X facter loser happens to be on the same label. One reason not to bother buying it. That and the fact I already have the album.
Awesome alliteration Alun
That is all.
"But that's probably just me being a humourless feminist, eh boys?"
Yes, yes it is.
So they decide to get outraged about a product that's been around for ages? I nearly bought this for Christmas last year. What a waste of trees. The sooner that paper goes under the better, taking the equally crappy Metro with it.
Though I do love the Gin and Titonic name, utter genius.
"if she lives in many parts of the USA."
Are you trying to say she's a fat American? Maybe "Neo" likes BBW?
That isn't safe for work. I've just been sacked.
Coat, for obvious reasons...
would zip him, block him and flOg him.
"Only 38 per cent of boys enjoy writing, compared with 52 per cent of girls. More boys found writing to be "boring" than girls as well: 57 versus 41 per cent. Boys also thought that writing was more for girls than boys - 60 versus 43 per cent"
Surely those figures all just balance each other out? If more boys find it boring then conversely less boys will find it interesting, and that could also account for the boys who think it's just for girls.
I think I want one of these jobs asking stupid questions to idiots and then just making up the numbers anyway.
Why are the comments out of order? Makes reading witty replies very difficult.
To those who ask how this "woman" passes as a journalist, she works for the MEN. One of the worst locals around.
Commentard customers create colossal claptrap cache?
Beyond 2000! Ah, the poor man's Tomorrow's World. How I remember it well.
I for one...
Welcome our minimally invaded wireless subretinal neurostimulated overlords.
@The Dark Lord
You're not the only one. Oooohhhh yeah!
Amazing alliteration astounds all.
Comments can cause consternation.
Can see it now...
Hmmm, arrest you I shall. Support Celtic did you. Lead to the dark side it does.
I work in Wythenshawe, if I'd known she was here I'd have gone round and slapped her one.
As others have mentioned please don't confuse mancs and scousers. Even though I'm a Stopfordian it's still not nice.
that's what they do in our canteen!!
How hard did Ike hit?
@It's not just Coventry
No it wouldn't be more important, but it would be funnier!
@Mike: What's the problem?
The privacy people would do better complaining about Google / You Tube being forced to hand UK user details to a USA company (viacom) which is against the UKs Data protection act.
Erm, pretty sure there's a thing called safe harbour (yes with a U!) in the DPA which allows data to be passed to foreign countries that we have agreements with, and the US is just one such country, as is India hence all the call centres being able to access our bank details.
What we should be more concerned about is their slow updating, Manchester wasn't updated for years, the Urbis and the city of Manchester stadium were still building sites on the net whilst I drove passed them everyday!
Surely it's other people who would find it offensive, you don't look at your own number plate do you?
Paris because she knows WTF
Loving the RPITA, perhaps that should be a new accreditation.

Surely it would be better if the number you had to text was 21463? CRIME. Or is that too obvious?
Oh that Hutton...
I thought maybe Alan had broadened his horizons since his move to Tottenham.
Mines the blue one with the RFC logo.
My neighbour doesn't know so it's OK
Fantastic, I'll use that one when sleeping with my neighbours wife!
I agree with Liam, Scarlett is gorgeous and a nice person by all accounts. Courtney is a skank. She should be played by Amy Whinehorse.
BTW what is Paris up to these days?
It's NOT recognised as a religion and it never will be.
The Church of Paris Hilton will be recognised one day soon though.
Never mind the X-Files, what about The Thing?
Pingu because he started it with his Yo Mama jokes.
Guess I must be doing it wrong then, can't wait to get Wii fit and the balance board. Can practice my hula hoop action! ;)
"pretty hard to fuck and play Wii bowling at the same time"
Not as difficult as you think, tennis is the hard one, so to speak!
I agree with most of the above comments, being a T-Mobile customer and having them randomly charge me for calls which should be included in my call plan, I'm really upset with them for trying to charge me when using a service that allows me to call my friend who's moved abroad.
The sooner my contract runs out the better, the network's rubbish too, frequently get messages saying emergency calls only and limited service. I can't even log onto their website properly, shabby operation all round really.
