Crystal Ball much?
"Despite its CEO's recent claim that "reports of our death are greatly exaggerated," Blackberry posted a loss of almost $1bn in Q2 2014." Can I place bets on this figure? I'd love to know the future of the financial markets.
Using my best...
back of a napkin maths..... these IHDs at £25 a pop, compared to the 53 million homes they want the meters in (imaging of course that they bung everyone a display unit) comes out to £1,325,000,000. Surely that amount of money could be used far more wisely in researching cleaner and more efficient tech for the production and supply of our leccy.
Water on Mars.... perhaps Edgar Rice Burrows was more of an historian than a fiction writer after all.......
What happens when....
they get struck by micro-meteorites? In space, no one can hear the noise of rapid deflation!
I had a Windows phone
Emphasis on the HAD. I got an HTC HD7 two years agoas it looked a decent phone and got me away from Apple. I upgraded this month and got a Nexus 4 which is about several orders of magnitude better an experience then my old Windows phone let alone what the new one would be like. I struggle to see M$' relevance in this area now considering how late they have come to the party. They've let Android and iOS get such a significant foothold in the mobile market that they'll struggle to find traction with any demographic.
I saw this on Sky news this morning and thought "I guess he feels like he hasn't been in the news recently." This does smack of the fact that he wants to remind everyone he's still here despite the fact that 99.999% of the world's population can get on fine without him.
Fallen - a movie that is rendered completely pointless by the end... I'm actually ashamed that I didn't walk out of the theatre. Skyline has been mentioned, that was awful. Pathfinder with Karl Urban is the worst thing I've ever seen him in.
a disturbing lack of crashed Autobot ships or shifty Decepticons...... what do you mean it was only a movie?
I always wanted FUB 4R
The sharks might actually be safer if we did provide the aforementioned "frickin' laser beams". They'd be able to cut themselves out of the nets and give a nasty shock to any fisherman wishing to farm illegally.
"penned by Skip Woods of A-Team, Wolverine and X-Men Origins fame." Fame or infamy, while we haven't seen origins yet I think this man's previous works do not bode well for this being a box office hit!
What amazes me...
..is that this bloke has managed to get money to spend his days checking out ladies of negotiable affections on t'Interwebs.
I think the Leaf is affordable if you compare it to the competition, the competition being the £80k Tesla! Still for most of us while we'd like to get a leccy car if only to stop burning through our cash at the pumps, rather than out of concern for the environment, it'll be a while before this technology is mainstream enough for us to actually afford the car.
denied it, supplied it" or even "he who articulated it, particulated it" of course there could be problems if someone let's out a silent one in a room full of people. Unless they followed through it may be tough to prove who dun it.
The Chinese Stealth Fighter...
..called the J-20, I wonder what flavour they'll finally be available in, Apple & Melon, Orange and Passionfruit, Raspberry...
Sad, very sad
Axl Rose is not GnR, certainly not after he has dragged the name through the mud and shown what a self-interested money grabbing spaz monkey he really is. Way to keep living that rock star lifestyle? Sue someone for IP that isn't totally yours so you can take a chunk out of one of the most successful games franchises in recent years so you don't have to do any real work....
in our next story, Ursine forest defecation!
See if we can spot a pattern..
Crap film + crap 3d conversion = crap box office performance. Avatat was shot natively in 3D and made full use of the advantages. until we get another film that tries to follow it, yeah, no one will want to pay extra for the gimmick of 3D to see a crappy film looking worse. Hollywood need to stop with all the sequels and reboots and go back to trying to make some good movies we actually want to see. This isn't showing that 3d is bad, it is showing that given the choice punters will pay less money to see a potentially wonky film.
... in order to maintain a fully healthy population and keep medication costs down, get rid of all the fat birds?
Environment suits and crowbars at the ready chaps.
Well, surely if they continue to "evolve" their society in similar patterns to humans I, for one, welcome our new Ant overlords.... etc...
That I go out and buy a hazard suit and a trusty new crowbar.
Eh? What? Indeed
As a Latter Day Saint myself I'm interested in being compared to both a brainless cult and the Taliban. While the Church itself does ask its members to adhere to modest dress standards it is also down to personal choice and certainly not the same as some interpretations of modesty seen in Islam. Also, I doubt any Latter Day Saint would condone the actions of the people at the University, I certainly don't. Even if I think that a person dresses immodestly I have no right to jeer or shout abuse at that person. Misrepresentation of religious groups in this manner tars good people with a bad brush. You might want to do some research about people before making some sensationalist comments.
If the first half of the movie is the Mage/Warlock spamming LFG channels trying to get in a group. The movie will finish with them wiping on the first boss before the group disbands with a series of "L2p n00bs" party chat spam.
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
That is all...
Bad Science is Bad!
I've worked in IT for my whole employment, it may be a mere 12 years but I have never been in an office/computer room where there have been stacks of coke cans and sci-fi posters. An IT manager I worked for came in once and had a barny that we had a Holly Valance calendar hidden away between desks out of sight of the general public because it was "smutty". She was fully clothed throughout. No environment I've seen fits the stereotypes presented here, all they're managing to qualify is that people with no interest in IT have even less interest when shown a workplace that has no resemblance to any office in the real world... bravo!
In a previous life I worked for a Defence company and have seen just this sort of dithering from the MoD on every single occasion. I'm amazed we have any kind of mechanisation for any of our armed forces. Think back to the days when we had the most accomplished Navy in the known world, now we're sending out vessels that aren't even properly/appropriately armed.....
I misread the article
I read it as "advise the relevant Cabinet Office minister on how government can best use the internet to make personal public data as widely available as possible."
Which is probably a lot closer to the reality...
Love the irony
I read about this on the beeb this morning and it's hilarious. What was even worse though was that Westminster claimed that she was actually doing " a great job" as home secretary...I mean, if she can't even fill in her expenses correctly what hope do the rest of us have against her constant removal of civil liberties.
Leaps of logic for uk.gov
If the gov get hold of this story I can see it now, extreme nudity=extreme porn = all WoW playesr own extreme porn and need to be jailed.
Dammit, now I sound like Daily Fail columnist.
So you're telling me...
"principal component analysis and cluster analysis to classify trunk characteristics"
