I replaced my CD drive with a hard disc caddy. Now I've got a fast SSD for the operating system, a large but slow HDD for data storage and the CD drive lives in an external USB box. It very rarely gets used.
HDD caddy and CD box together cost less than £20 from a well-known tat-bizarre.
I've just watched a woman driver fail to park her car in a perfectly adequate space between two other cars. She then proceeded to repeat the same process on the other side of the road where she finally managed to fit her car into a space exactly the same length of the one she'd previously failed with.
During her manoeuvres she was assisted by her female friend who stood on the pavement and empathically checked out her messages on the phone.
That said, most 'parking' these days seems to entail slamming two of the cars wheels over the kerb and leaving it sprawled untidily on the pavement.
Great! Order a £4.99 paper-back and keep the drone. A quick hack and, what, it only runs on Amazon's 'Whispernet'?
'The South Korean firm was also slammed after contestants on reality talent show The X Factor were shown repeatedly using its products during an ad campaign it ran on ITV.'
And quite rightly so. You never see Apple products being used on television programmes.
Re: I will get one because....
Because you're worth it!
Season 16: The Key to Time.
Season 23: The Trial of a Time Lord.
All your Baker needs in a couple of handy boxes.
Plus Season Paul McGann: Doctor Who The Movie.
Whole seasons but good value purchases.
Glad to be of service.
Re: Finally, Moffat comes up with a cracker
Agree with you wholeheartedly. Very well done by everyone involved.
I managed 7 minutes of the BBC3 thing before playing episode 1 of The Enemy Of The World. Black and white Doctor Who is so much better than watching screaming idiots trying to look cool.
Looks more like a 'Dimensions In Time' image. I'm sure Tom's a bit more 'upholstered' these days.
The Colin Baker cover looks out of time too.
Maybe it's a Baker thing.
What is it?
Not quite pinned a name down yet have you?
'You can say phablet, we prefer “phondleslab”.'
Also called in the article:
Maybe we could just call these things by their size. i.e. 5-inch phone, 8-inch tablet etc.
Re: They have some serious uses
How on earth did they fit a 3D printer in her mouth?
Re: Why on earth did he even try to use it?
Maybe he is one of those 'idiots' who'd pay silly amounts of money to get one early.
Yeah! And this whole article is stolen from the pages of Doctor Who Magazine.
Forbidden Planet: Stolen from Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'. And Morbuis wasn't a mad scientist he was a mad linguist. (I often wonder why a 'master of languages and their meanings' [thanks wikipedia] is on the crew to colonise a planet.)
I like it!
Going on what TV adverts are like, what are they going to show to that long queue of men? Alcohol? Nope. Cigarettes? Nope. Nuts magazine? No. Razor blades? Yes, Tesco can still sell them to motorists. Well until the 'Radical Mothers' get them banned because children can hurt themselves on the sharp edges.
They did what?
"The Premiership is back! Get up to £50 FREE BET on the weekends Football with [REDACTED]. Click [REDACTED] Today! text STOP to 66644 to opt-out [sic]"
These people sent a txt with "[sic]" as the last word? Oh, they didn't. So why have you put "[sic]" inside the quotation marks?
The difficult second paragraph
I can't make any sense out of the second paragraph. Help!
Don't real authors use portable Remington typewriters?
Or TB3. I (think I) remember seeing TB3 return to base. Alan has to get the craft back through the opening in the torus-shaped building. At least Scott had a swimming pool he could dump on the flaming wreckage should he get the landing wrong.
Amazon are charging (at the time of this post) £10 for The Rolling Stones: GRRR! [Blu-Ray Audio] and £12.49 for the MP3.
I'd go for the Blu-Ray.
Re: There's a very simple cure
"Can I get cashback from the self-service machine? No? I wait in this queue thanks."
Re: Nice, except...
I admire your dedication to this rather silly television show. Not only watching TV at at 4AM but taking a day off work to boot.
I hope the 3D-Blu-ray is released promptly to fulfil your tri-dimensions desire.
I'm planning to disconnect the phone and have a cup of tea while I watch it.
ITV Granada? Good grief!
Re: Personally if i was spreading a virus
" the Idiot Noisebox they call Beiber."
So you are acquainted with his ourve.
It's a calling
Bob Dormon, please keep the obsequiousness out of your future reviews. It's not your job to just blithely regurgitate the Sony press release. I, for one, would like to know what you really felt about this device. Is it a ground-breaking, metaphor-mixing leap forward or just another technological blind-alley?
Also, do you leave the light on when you sleep at night?
Re: Screen size
It says in the copy that it's 0.2 inches smaller than the Samsung 6.3 so this thing should be around 6.1 inches across the diagonal.
Huawei are probably keeping shtum on the size because, well, you know, it's all about who's got the biggest.
"Garnered media attention.............."
Just like the Hindenburg did.
A Warning, Please!
Please El Reg, give a warning when a link in an article leads to the Daily Mail. This sort of thing leaves a trail you know.
What does it all mean?
"Up until then the soon-to-be-pensioned-off OS needs security updating like Gwyneth Paltrow needs ice cream. "
I know what a Gwyneth Paltrow is and I know what ice-cream is. What I don't understand is the relationship implied by the author.
Also the film contained more science and less wobbly camerawork than many a recent Horizon.
One of the pubs is near me. Off to The Albert for lunch I think. I certainly won't be going near a McD. Encouraging children to treat the place as a playground? Another reason not to go into their pit of hell.
Re: Better get busy
I never lie.
Nope. Never told a lie in my whole life. Ever. And never, especially, when my self preservation depended on it. Why, what kind of crazy lunatic would even consider lying in an attempt to preserve their selves?
Re: The first thing I'd want ..
Will I be able to stabilise the wobbly camera and crash zooms?
The new Doctor
My prediction for the new Doctor: someone you can't put a name to but you'll go 'oh! I know him, he was in the background of that programme we watched last year.'
It could be one person with 200 million accounts.
'Meter' too, although a spell checker wouldn't spot the error.
used a system similar to the maglev launch platform except using rockets to power the sled. Gerry Anderson and AC Clarke between them seem to have invented the future.
Someone having a crafty cigarette in the toilet. Again.
Once again I ask the question 'how do you pay (or show proof of a valid purchase or season ticket) when your phone battery inconveniently dies?'
That piece of plastic may be 'old fashioned' but it never runs out of juice.
Re: Twelve Doctors?
You can't blame McGann for that.
I want one!
I have Airdroid and PRemoteDroid why wouldn't I want one of these?
Re: Bye bye...
I sympathise. I can never find anything I like in the local stores but.....
After a quick web search I found 11 collar styles*. If a shop were to stock 1 of each in the most popular sizes (14.5" to 20", a dozen in all) they'd need to find room for 132 shirts. God help you if you don't want a white one. Or short sleeves.
Just what do you suggest the general department stores do? It's easy to say "come up with a new models, new services and new ideas" but apart from 'stock more grandad shirts' what?
* point, narrow, saint tropez, spread, button-down, round, pin, tab, wing-tip, mandarin, nehru. There may be more.
