That would bar her from teaching again?
Are they serious at all?
During the whole automotive industry crash, all the American firms pledged to develop leccy cars and change the way they're operating. (I think GM had the great homepage slogan "This isn't a bailout for failure, but an investment for success!", all in green.) Now the banks are in hot water and the attention has shifted, first Crysler and now GM have mothballed their eCar projects.
When will these guys realise that innovation is required, and they need to move with the times! Their business model is flawed, no that's not right, I mean FUBAR, and they need to SORT THEIR SH!T OUT! They can complain about imports, unions, and a recession all they like, but if they build crap that noone wants to drive, guzzling a gazillion litres a mile, they're going to go bust no matter what.
*breathe in* *breathe out*
Think I'm done here...
They're selling in the US, but advertising with a big, thick €200 note.
Surely they have a European outlet then?
@ AC 10:34 "minus the phone"
Er... Oh, what the hell, I'll bite: iTouch?
I don't have an iPhone, but I know playing games on my iPod drains the battery life like no tomorrow. There's a huge difference between drining the battery dead on a pure gaming & music device, and killing your PHONE to while the time away. Until that's sorted, the iPhone won't be a real challenger to portable gaming as the game-time is much more limited.
Reminds me of the time...
when they tried to blow up that whale.
CAUSE AND EFFECT!!
What's more likely: That violent video games cause people to want to cause violence; or that violent people are drawn towards playing violent video games?
The Galleria Kaufhof have done the right thing to show the absurdity of this proposal: If depicting violence causes violence, then the films have to go. Half the TV shows must go off air: CSI, Law & Order, The Bill, Eastenders, Hollyoaks, House. All contain some form of violence.
This is once again the state attempting to rectify the wrongs of neglient parenting by over-reacting.
Another reason not to fly Ryanair
It's false economy! Flying from Butt-F-Nowhere airport to BFN airport that you have to get to and from, paying for baggage, paying for food, and now paying for going to the toilet! Charging you twice for drinking!
The problem they might have as well is that, as Ryanair are so obviously penny-pinching, passengers can become (even more) tight. As in peeing into bottles. So instead of reducing the cleaning of the toilets, all Ryanair flights will just stink of piss. Niiice...
As for stopping counter check-ins, what is one to do when Ryanair cancels (yet another) flight and one is rebooked? (As has happened to me, twice in the same day, but let's not go there...)
Since when were Torrents illegal?
“provide the ability to others to upload and store torrent files to the service”
Er... Surely the actual torrents themselves are not illegal? There's no copyrighted materials there!
So it's now illegal to upload and store links? Uh-oh...
I'd be interested in seeing how they're going to paint this as illegal...
For once it doesn't pay
to live on the continent...
€4758,81 for us over here! With the current exchange rate, I could fly over to London, stay weekend at the Ritz, and still make it back with change!
Helicopter, because it would be cheaper to have it air-dropped.
CLEAN fight? With Microsoft?
HAHAHAHahahahahaha... *gasp* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAAAAAAHHAHAHAHAhahahahahahaha...
And why don't we get similar warnings on films? I'm sure a kid that watches lots of violent movies is also likely to have "diminished reactions" to real-life violence.
Pirates, because they have diminished reactions to violence.
No currency into GBP?
Though with the Great British Krona trading at near 1:1 with the Euro, I suppose most Reg readers could probably do the conversion themselves...
The one with pockets full of Zim Dollars, please...
Are they going to change the cover to Nevermind as well then? Ban that?
BBC have a different reason
The BBC have blown up the pic to spot pixel differences!
And it's strange that the two next to him have REALLY baggy trousers, and everyone else seems nicely straight and ironed!
Kim Jong Il:"Do you have any idea how f**king busy I am? "
I'm so Ronley...
How are you meant to notice a red light with yellow-tinted windows?
STOP! As you won't be able to see it.
Best Name Competition?
I thought that was already won by Batman bin Suparman a while back.
Photo of Singaporean ID to prove.
The red cape with the black, pointy-eared cowl please...
It's not just Germany
I think you'll find that the entire Benelux region has been annexed by the New Danish People's Republic too!
As well as Austria. The map also appears to have suffered the same problem as the original Euro reference book and Wales has been lost to the sea. Not to mention Scicilly appears to have developed a land-bridge to the continent too...
The one with a spinning globe in the pocket please...
@ Oliver Jones
"I made it very clear to friends and family that I do NOT call mobile numbers unless there is a dire emergency. Messages for me to call back on a mobile number (unless it is business-related) are ignored."
Well, aren't you a selfish ba*d. You expect people to call you on your mobile, while refusing to call anyone else on theirs. You remind me of people that refuse to answer ID withheld, and then withhold their own.
I can do it for my convenience, but sod you for mine too.
They should be dealt with GTA-style...
If they're going to claim they learnt to do it from GTA, they should expect to be dealt with the same way. Get more than a "3 star" rating, which I would assume would be the fire-bombing of their 3rd or 4th car, and the police would turn up and riddle them with bullets.
What did they expect? That's what happens in the game. Then they could reload from the last save-point...
Flame icon, for obvious reasons.
Engineers worked throughout Saturday night and Sunday 10 August to ensure service was stable.
Translation: We had to work the weekend! Sympathy please!
Well, if you didn't fsck it up in the first place, you wouldn't have had to!
Could he sue...
the company that reverse-engineered his program? Surely they's profitting from infringing on his IP, even it is only at the behest of the Air Force?
What about hand-cancer?
When most people are using their mobiles, they're HOLDING the phone. In fact, whether they're texting, calling or surfing, they have to HOLD their phones.
Where are the studies that over-usage of mobiles causes cancer in the hands?
Thumbs Up, because it's useful for texting.
Screaming for VoIP?
For $30 a month and data only, isn't that just SCREAMING for people to unlock the phone and make it a VoIP phone?
Shooting themselves in the foot, non?
How can you justify an appeal when you've LED THE POLICE TO THE BODY?!?
"No, Gov'nor, I didn't actually kill my wife. I could just feel where her restless spirit was in the woods."
The court process is to ensure that the innocent are not unjustly punished. When someone pleads guilty, there should be no WAY the punishment should be dropped on "technicalities". (Other than perhaps the guilty plea being beaten out of the defendant.) Pleading guilty after having been found guilty is just trying to wriggle out of taking full responsibility for your own actions.
Not right at all!
For 30 quid, with the 3 service the customer could get the 27 quid free minutes, PLUS another 3 quids worth of minutes on billed rates. That would then be 400+ more minutes than the T-Mobile deal.
Has anyone thought about applying this to BluRay?
Sorry, just thought I'd throw that in...
The question surely should be how do you make a DVD RW out of this? Would be a bit silly if you had all this potential for storage, and then could only use it for pre-fab...
@ Steven R: Even worse...
Mini-Me in Paris...
Why are Cheese and Onion crisps ALWAYS the ones used in any media representation? There are SO many more flavours out there, not to mention Salt and Vinegar being the best flavour ever! Cheese and Onion is DISGUSTING, I wouldn't even feed it to my BABY, let alone my Staffy!
My disappointment in El Reg spreading the falsehood of the dominance of C&O flavoured crisps is disgraceful, and I shall be cancelling my subscription forthwith. Chris Williams should be taken out, peeled, sliced, grilled, and turned into whatever flavour anyone chooses, as long as it's not C&O!
Mine's the green one with all the crumbs...
"I'd rather work in an arms plant than be, for example, a politician or a lawyer, or work for BT. At least my customers would know exactly where they stood with my products and services."
What, miles and miles away, with munitions hanging over their heads and one click away from oblivion?
Fibre in their diets?
At least this should help Bournemouth keep (data flow) regular then...
The one with the hard hat and gas mask please...
