I remember hearing that on space missions, bad breath isn't much of an issue because of the oxygen rich atmosphere.
Is there a direct staircase from the gates of hell to the Apple Legal Department?
Doesn't even compare to the PS3
I bought a PS3 for £150 an PlayTV box for £50 and have a significantly better setup than this.
The playTV GUI is the best I've seen on any set top box/ TV plug in thing. Why do they need to reinvent the wheel when they could just integrate together what already works.
Don't throw it in the skip!
I'm positive that the bloke could make a mint selling off different parts of the decor online.
Throwing it in the skip would just be a total waste.
It won't be too long
Given that people are being expected to work in excess of 60hrs a week, it won't be long until management decide that it would be more "productive" to give employees pee bottles so that they don't ever have to leave their desks.
Because obviously people can remain at 100% efficiency when they are working 10 hour days, 6 days a week.

Like the crew of Deep Space 9...
these guys will be boldly going nowhere.
Scum, Scum, Scum, Scum, Scum.
Not only are the rich stealing from the poor but they are stealing from the rich too. I hope they drown in their own money
Why can a budget 600MHz phone have an offical HTC Android 2.3 build yet the more powerful Desire can't?
Interesting white paper but
it does really just point out the obvious facts that any systems or software engineer have figured out for themselves. Another bit of software to capture requirements won't make much difference given that the vast majority of schedule slip issues are introduced by the customer themselves and the poor management of the changes by team leads.
Is there another link?
I'd like to find out more but don't want to have to sign up/pay to read about it.
Shirly you must mean 802.11n?
Perhaps these companies might finally learn that customer service and product knowledge should be of greater priority.
I'm always hearing horror stories of people being sold freeview boxes when the TV that they are buying at the same time has freeview built in or people being sold £40 "Gold Plated" HDMI cables when a £10 would do the job.
You know the best thing about BT Home Hubs?
Its that handy reset button that's missing from so many other ADSL routers. Its very handy given how many times each day I have to press it.
They look very nice..
shame they don't run Android.. or Meego.. or even at a push, symbian..
Make the software companies part of a trial run whereby they will have to complete their own tax return in the iXBRL format.
Nothing like a swift kick from the finance department to get development going.
I wonder why people might not be buying as many Android Tablets when Android 3.0 hasn't been released yet......
My 2 pence worth
Went to buy TV from Curry's last year after having seen an advert for it at a decent price.
I trolled the member of staff a bit to ask whether it had freeview built in (knowing it had), he disappeared to check the computer and came back to tell me it didn't but that they had an offer on freeview boxes and tried to flog one to me.
Then i asked for an antenna cable.... TV store... must have them.. surely... They only had a cable in a kit that included numerous other things that i had no need for.
HDMI Cable... he handed me an HDMI cable that was in the region of £90 for 2m and they didn't have anything cheaper. He tried to sell the benefits of gold connectors to me and how "electrons flow better in it, mate"
I went to a local supermarket and got both cables for under £20.
As an Android User...
The (Free) Google Navigation App on my HTC Desire gets me where I want to go and it is considerably more up to date and accurate than my 18 month old Tom Tom for which I would have to pay for updated maps. In a side by side comparison the Tom Tom failed to plot a route to a destination that the navigation app found with ease.
"La la la la I'm not listening"
Is our country being run by adults or 8 year old children?
I'm sure looking back at history would show that governments who have decided to silence their advisors haven't lasted very long.
Such primitive technology!
I wonder if the people on this planet will ever discover the superior sound of vinyl?
I Invented the Internet
but nobody else liked my idea at the time.....
I was also almost the first man on the moon
When browsing to this article about the prediction that Windows will become no more, I got a full screen advert for Microsoft...
What I'd really like
Is a Nokia built Android phone.
Nokia's hardware has always been good but the UI has alway been poor.
It'll never happen but I can dream can't I
You can't use a computer systems to replace good policing
If fewer hours were spent by officers entering data in to countless databases and more time spent of the streets then they would know where the potentially vulnerable people live and where the problem youths target.
Does this mean...
That big companies who have 90 day payment terms will no longer be able to hold off payment for so long?
I just need to double my salary. Easy.
<-- Likely outcome of that happening in my current industry
Bet Apple are loving this!
There is a whole new raft of companies that they can slap patent lawsuits on for infringing on some ancient and incredibly vague patent that hints at some of the technology used on tablet PCs.
<-- Steve the Devil..... because he really is!
What are they going to use the Robot Arm for?
Answers on a post card please
Aren't the airports Spanish already?
Aren't all the BAA Airports owned by a Spanish company?
Doesn't mean that we have a Spanish border as you pass through security. Ownership by a company of forign nationality doesn't mean that it becomes part of that country.
I'd still rather have......
An AMD Processor and an nvidia graphics card in my machine.
Why not just make the carrier faster
Surely the obvious answer is that if the carrier moves along faster then the relative speed difference between the deck of the ship and the fighter will be less.
Perhaps that is too obvious.
If I was a teacher
I'd be quite happy if cameras were fitted in classrooms especially considering the large number of attacks on teachers and pupils.
Its all about common sense really, if the head teacher is going to use it to spy on his staff then its not on but if it is purely going to be used for a safety perspective and only viewed in the event of an incident then what is the problem.
Can I have iPlayer for Linux please?
