Actually, looking at the BBC's figures, does anyone think that BBC2 is worth almost 5 times what BBC3 costs? Or BBC1 12 times?
Kill off BBC3
And that's where we find the space for a mooted BBC1+.
Or the BBC could merge BBC3, CBBC, CBeebies and BBC Parliament and keep all the loud shouting confined to one channel.
Is this 'Best Smartphone' in the same way that ITV is 'Channel of the Year'?
Re: Yeah no.
Of course nobody who just played CDs in a CD player had any trouble with naughty root kits.
Re: Not too surprised
The recent lost Doctor Who DVDs didn't have any VAM extras either. They were however in whatever the standard SD horizontal resolution is as opposed to the reduced count that iTunes pumped out. (Or so I've been informed. I'm not in a position to peer into the garden.)
Re: Any explanation
£8.78 at BASE.com, £9.30 at AMAZON.com. Perhaps shopping around might help you.
I do wonder why the download is £10.49 at AMAZON.
In the words of Ned Flanders
"Homer, I can honestly say that was the best episode of Impy & Chimpy I've ever seen."
I liked it!
The acting was as good as anything I've been forced to endure on C4/ITV/BBC.
And it was funnier than any 'comic' on same.
Well done Samsung for a wonderful parody of our vacuous society.
Re: How is Lybia anyways?
It's this kind of insightful political reporting that is sorely missed in the mainstream media.
It's a trap!
Everybody knows it's freezing cold in space so there isn't a need for a cooling system pump.
This is a ploy by HAL to get the astronauts outside while he fills their stockings with presents.
The sound of money.
Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand? IPONZ?
Suspiciously close to iPonz.
Why do these portable DAB radios consume so much power?
May I suggest a small tweak to improve your joke?
'I much prefer HP's condiments to their computers, you can take the lid off and they're truly open sauce.'
Preserves the punchline that way.
Re: Folding money?
That's as may be but you're 'biting' your readers with that celeb-porn site.
"The anonymity also explains why the currency has, for most of its five-year existence, been widely used by criminal gangs looking for a way to finance a trade in drugs, guns or child pornography."

Whatever did criminals do before the invention of Bitcoin?
Also, where did the second paragraph come from in the above? I just did a cut 'n' paste of the bit in quote marks.
Also also, stop linking to articles to Mail Online. It's getting beyond a joke now.
I like that song. By The Waterboys wasn't it?
Well, I like The Beastie Boys, and I also like companies that produce building "blox" in pastel colours designed to encourage girls to become engineers even if they do have illustrations on the box depicting girls as Disneyifed wide-eyed demi-princesses, but which is better?
There's only one way to find out.
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.)
Any relation to
(Sorry, it just sprang to mind and annoyed me so I decided to share it.)
Re: "his loathing of violence and force"
He didn't. He was stopped from killing the cave-man by Ian Chesterton.
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.
That was no lady, that was my wife!
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!

" 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?
You're right. The Nook looks a better deal.
I saw an ASUS 7" in Sainsbury's going for £79.99. 8GB and it had a microSD card slot. It was blue, if that's of any use to anyone.
Jeez I wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition!
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.
