John Atkinson, next time you're in New Mexico, let me buy ya a beer!
Yes, yes you are. Thanks for revealing your true identity.
Home is WHERE the hub is.
Not "were", which would be used as in, "The editors were drinking too much on their long pub lunch." You want "where", as in "Where are the editors? Getting drunk at a long pub lunch?"
Lester for King!
I hereby vote Lester Haines for King!
In unrelated news, who here wants to band together and turn this article into a live action film? With current Hollywood standards, I think it'll be the top grossing film of the year!
Are you still accepting applications for leader of the mob?
Oh, for the love of...
"Beyond that, Adobe is relying on brand trust and internet reputation to help users make safe choices."
Did no one there ever hear of social engineering? This is doomed to be yet another infection vector that will make lots of busy work for people who actually have to administer networks.
RE: Come on lads...
I'm the Anonymous Coward from Monday 15th October 2007 18:53 GMT, and I was being seriously congratulatory, your post made for a bunch of very entertaining reading in the follow ups.
If AOL can fall, Microsoft and Google can too. There's hope for us yet!
@ Specialist team?
"Is this team limited to Scotland, or do England and Wales have their own squads?"
Wales does. Only it's for sheep. Over there though, they aren't a "Specialist Team" they're called "citizens".
Left my coat in the car, no need to stop on the way out.
SneakerNET is the newest form of peer to peer file sharing mixed with a liberal dash of social networking! With it, you can use our innovative new file sharing protocol (cattle class) to find a file you want, physically transport yourself to the location of the hoster, and burn a CD of the file straight from his copy! (Airline tickets will not be provided, you must purchase them yourself.)
"The Valuestar W range is only available in Japan at the moment, where the 19in model retails for about ¥210,00 (£903/€1388/$1819) and the 22in model for ¥340,000 (£1464/€2168/$946)."
Either you typoed, or no one in the US will buy the 19 inch model, because the 22 inch is half price?
Fair enough, I should check dictionary.com before flaming next time. But my first point still stands!
I have a great tool for stopping my network from being breached. A fire axe just this side of the demarc point.
In other news, are we supposed to take them seriously when they don't know how to spell connection?
Because any halfway decent hacker doesn't use his own machine to originate attacks, you'd be taking down innocents left and right. It's like gunning down a large group of protesters just because their leader (who's sitting at home watching TV) once threw a rock at you.
@The Invading Martian.
An Officer, a Gentleman and a man from mars walk into a bar. The bartender calls INS on the illegal alien, and the Officer and Gentleman wake up passed out in the gutter the next morning.
Ok, ok, so I can't tell a good joke...
Chris Purcell is a n00b!
I play the Google card to prove it.
Yes it is, and its adverts that pay for the bandwidth of the sites you view, if everyone used adblock, I wonder how much smaller the internet would be.
Finally! Someone else with sense. I don't block ads specifically because I realize that without ads, the sites I'm viewing (which I obviously WANT to view) wouldn't exist, since I'm too cheap to pay them to see the content. Hell, occasionally I even find something useful in the ads.
Even when blown up, I still can't find the 32 nm part! If you look near the lower left corner though, you can see a slightly offcolor pixel where the unicorn's invisibility failed.
Nay, it is I, the true anonymous! So, which button do I click to go anonymous?
@ the author
You know, you're exhibiting a trait that will be selected against in journalism. Although the article was quite interesting, the comments are more interesting. You would have expended far less energy (and had more time at the pub) if you had just said "Evolution, debate." Watching fanatics debate (on both sides. Personally, I take a more apathetic stance. "It happened, who cares why? Where'd I leave that website I'm supposed to be designing...") is great Friday fun, thanks :).
I agree with a few of the posters above. I just skip the iPhone articles themselves, and move straight into the comments. It's more fun than I used to have reading the flame wars in IRC channels.
re: Bacteria can't see...
And you're right, they can't hoover a room, but they can clean up oil spills. But is it cheating if they just do it because they're hungry?
I wonder if authors get discounted rates?
Go for a jog, it changes tracks with each step.
Trip while walking around the office, shuffle your carefully crafted playlist.
Thank you, but I already have enough trouble with my laptop (you know, the kind you turn upside down and shake to reboot).
You know what'd be really evil? Just publish a study showing that tinfoil hats cause cancer. I'd love to see them scurrying for a new radio wave blocker. Or better yet, just say that alien mind reading rays PREVENT cancer.
And... it cut off my comment. I was just saying i was using XP sp 1, it was ugly, but it worked. All the comment was in the text box, and i didn't click preview (idiot) just post. I guess I lied, it's ugly AND it DOESN'T work. $firefox++
Ok, I tried it, Win XP
Simple, all her "fans" are actually just a giant botnet she hired to make her look popular.
Re: John Bishop's comment
I'd like to nominate John's comment for the Best of Comments feature they've got now. In perpetuity. (John, that means forever.)
I'm a yank and even *I* knew that Skynet 5 is just the next iteration of your current military communication system!
But, still, I welcome our new overlords!
Am I the only one who thought that Clive's comment was intended to be funny?

I figured it was an Elisa program myself...
