Space. Space. Wanna go to space. Better buy a telescope. Wanna see me. Buy a telescope. Gonna be in space. Are we in space yet? What’s the hold-up? Gotta go to space. Gotta go to SPACE. Ohmygodohmygodohmygod! I’m in space! Wanna go to earth wanna go to earth wanna go to earth wanna go to earth. Wanna go to earth. Wanna go home. It’s too big. Too big. Wanna go home. Wanna go to earth.
The last company to give hoboes tumors at least gave them $60 for their trouble, on top of the $60 they got for doing science.
I'll stick to me LaserJet 4000N what I picked up for $15 at a secondhand shop, with a full toner! Just needed the rollers cleaned, and the toner will probably have gone off by the time I'm close to exhausting it with how often I print! Saving me pennies and the environment, I am!
Welcome to the H.E.V. mark 4 protective system. For use in hazardous environment conditions. High-impact reactive armour activated. Atmospheric contaminant sensors activated. Vital sign monitoring activated. Automatic medical systems engaged. Weapon selection system activated. Munition level monitoring activated. Communications interface online. Have a very safe day.
The real WTF in this is that nobody had even a thought of "derp, let's escape this so that you can't do that." Hopefully Robert Tables isn't running for office this week.

You got it all wrong, Johnny! It's an Emosbusturduckencorphail. An Emu, stuffed with an Ostrich, stuffed with a Bustard, stuffed with a Turkey, stuffed with a Duck, stuffed with a Chicken, stuffed with a Cornish Game Hen, stuffed with a Pheasant, stuffed with a Quail. Serves fifty, or 4 really fat American individuals. Can't be deep-fried, as deep-frying poultry needs to have an open body cavity for the oil to fill. I cook mine on a rotisserie over medium heat for 2 hours per pound, or approximately 72 hours.
I just buy mine from out of state.
Remember - Alabama is home of Redstone Arsenal, where the US developed all those nifty rockets. I still think Huntsville should secede from Alabama though.
And yes, Alabama has very liberal gun laws. Waiting period my ass; they just installed an express lane.

£30 ProLiant may not be stolen, he never said it had top of the line hardware in it. I got one with a Pentium D in it for $20 at a salvage yard around here. With that being said, though, I haven't touched eBay in years; ever since I found a couple of computer equipment salvage places around town - I doubt you'll find a complete SunFire 880 on eBay. (Well, maybe you would, but I wouldn't want to ship the bloody thing.)
Isn't it every time a company rebrands like this, they're either in financial trouble or experiencing slowing sales.
Also, how is AMD going to respond to this? A smiley-faced rating system? A row of CPUs, indicating how many of whatever CPU it is it takes to match a Core i7?
Breach of contract?
OK, I saw one of the points they made was breach of contract.
I have an original, 2G, 4 GB iPhone. I bought it off of Craigslist. I never signed a contract with AT&T or Apple. Shouldn't I have the right to use my device however I want, as long as I'm not copying or distributing their software?
Just my $0.02.
A title is required.
Download kept failing at about 45 MB on my eMac, but Software Update managed to figure out it was an incomplete download, and kept telling me to try back later. Later that evening, went without problem.
The only interesting dreams will be the ones with the last human, a being evolved from his cat, and a hologram of one of his dead crewmates performing a song-and-dance number.
Mine's the one with the JMC logo on the back.
They probably have a minimum-wage clerk in the store to take the orders, and then probably dispatch it through OnForce or the like.
By the way, Walmart's prices are so low, they've dropped the hyphen and capital M from their name.
Do I hear whalesong...?
The only machine truly secure from remote exploits...
...is the one not connected to the Internet and locked in a vault.
Additionally, the user is as important a part of the machine's security as the OS is, if not more. All the security in the world won't protect a user from their own actions.
I work for a company that installs and services payment kiosks and other point of sale hardware. I've found it'd be unlikely for someone to be able to sniff the PIN coming from a POS terminal to the server, as every installation I've done with modern (<2002) hardware has featured encryption in the PIN entry device. The Ingenico 6550, which is what Wal-Mart and most other retailers are switching to, encrypts the PIN inside the device, before even the host terminal sees it. Older terminals, like the eN-Touch 1000, which I also commonly see, ship from Ingenico configured for in-unit encryption, but it can be disabled, unlike the newer units. That does nothing to protect those poor Visa / MC / Amex / Discover users whose stripe data is still there in the open...
