Time to put an end to these "Victorian Sensibilities"...
After all, the old battleaxe has been gone for over a century now!
I take it the polls closed
Before anyone saw "Battleship"?
I thought it was called "The War Against Terror"?
At least that's what I've thought of every politician since...
Yes (Prime) Minister was never a sitcom...
It was a Docu-Drama with a Gubmint-imposed laugh track to make us think it was fictional!
Do what I'd do...
Tell them you don't have a Farceberk profile.
(Except I wouldn't be lying)
As any fule no
It's _tachyons_ you need for FTL & time travel!
What should happen next...
Sir Ian McKellen should insist on the premiere being held in Southampton, with the after-party held at the establishment in question.
(Y'know - just to rub the lawyers noses in it).
Satnav blindness is everywhere.
One end of the road where I work is closed for a couple of weeks whilst the roundabout there is enlarged as part of improving access onto the industrial estate.
Sat-tards are driving past ALL SIX "Road closed ahead" signs and not turning round until they've found the big hole in the road at the very end.
Remember when Shakespeare said "First, kill the lawyers"?
Maybe he meant UI designers, because this makes Ubuntu Unity & Gnome Shell look well thought out!
I for one, welcome our new alcohol-fueled robotic overlord!
'The full harm to Apple cannot be calculated'
Divide by zero error?
Title goes where?
"mass-produced, lowest common denominator, well, shit being pushed out by "artists" every day"
Or "Complete & utter Cowell" as I like to call it.
EML2 has other advantages
Like using the entire mass of the Moon to screen out Earth-generated radio & TV signals.
This would however also require a comms satellite in L4 or L5 to talk to the base.
You forgot 8
8) Nobody wins but the lawyers.
Shakespeare saw this coming...
Dick The Butcher: "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers."
(Henry VI Part 2 Act 4 Scene 2)
Mine's the doublet.
"There were a series of marketing cock-ups from Acorn"
Like cancelling "Project Phoebe" (RiscPC II) only six weeks from launch _after_ taking pre-orders?
T-Mobile is now linked with Orange under the name "Everything Everywhere"
If the gubmint _really_ wanted everyone to have the latest maps...
Then they'd force car dealerships to update built-in satnavs for free as part of the annual service.
Instead of asking for £££ to buy a disc just for yourself that can update _all_ cars with that system.
"Moot something so outrageous that everyone is up in arms. While they are all distracted by agreeing that it should be stopped, sneak through something less harmful (but still harmful) into the legislation."
You mean like sneaking the EU's sign-up to ACTA into the bowels of an Agriculture & Fisheries meeting?
See page 43 of this press release:-
Let's see now...
No black surround? - check
No rounded corners? - check
No horizontal speakers? - check
Apple will be livid!
Have you got it?
Try "Voodoo Carrier IQ Detector" from the Android Market.
(Says no on my Orange Samsunge Galaxy SII)
What the e-petitions website really needs...
Is an e-petition directing MPs to debate and act upon e-petitions!
Wait a minute...
OFCOM had teeth?
Title should read...
Software maker sorry for getting caught trying to silence security researcher
You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy, we must be cautious.
Why I bought a Vauxhall...
It came with a full-size USB & a 3.5mm socket instead of a fruit dock.
Add-ons disabled by default?
No Adblock Plus, no me!
The 3 tenets of politics
1: Promise everything.
2: Deliver nothing.
3: Blame someone else.
Divide by zero?
nothing to see here, move along.
Root it & install CyanogenMod 7.
It's possible LTE would displace one of the older technologies like say, EDGE.
Have you checked how often folks are stuck using EDGE instead of GPRS or 3G in the UK?
Agreed re fruit-connector
Just go with a standard USB socket, like my Vauxhall.
Aircon will suck the batteries dry, but we'd only need it 3 days a year!
TL;DR = WANT!
(Mines the one with the Palestinian Plutonium in the pocket)
Not the only problem...
It would help if O'Bama would stop appointing MAFIAA lawyers to the Supreme Court!
Noise Isolation + Public road != Good thing
You really REALLY want to hear that car/bus/truck coming as you step into the road!
Loudhailer so that you can hear me over your dubstep mix.
P already decided
12.04 (an LTS release due next April as the version number suggests) will be codenamed Precise Pangolin.
They had trouble installing the NSA backdoor on the servers.
The first comment made when this story hit Slashdot?
The researchers are totally off base here. These aren't self-portraits; they're writing. When transliterated into the Roman alphabet, they read "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"
I foresee the cancellation of F1, Top Gear & everything Dr Who related - the only BBC shows I watch.
This coupled with a massively increased budget for 'Stenders, Costume bl**dy Drama & Celebrity "I can't dance to save my life".
Jobs' family to arrange "quiet" funeral
They say he didn't want anything flash.
I hadn't noticed, thanks to Adblock Plus.
"such a claim by tea partiers would be admitting man went there, and i'm pretty sure it says in that there book of theirs that we didn't."
Fixed that for you.
Yes, it will. Until it isn't.
I do see where you're going with this...
Why modern music sounds rubbish?
Dixons prays Olympics will boost sales
These people have been named, therefore they cannot be members of Anonymous.
If they were members, the article would have read "two unnamed men".
Never mind the width...
Feel the quality.
The record companies need to make music worth "stealing" again, instead of album after album of utter Cowell.
Design consultant = Victoria Beckham
According to Top Gear this season.
Paris wants one in bubblegum pink to go with her Bentley.
I'll just leave this here...
Of course, the conspiracy theorists will be along in a minute to explain that the riots were started by "Da Gubmint" in order to reclaim their control over the dear peepul, which has been bypassed by all this "social netw*nking 'n' stuff".
Not a black helicopter, Murdoch's illegal spy drone.
Name has been named
BBC say it's Greg Miskiw.
This man has a claim for wrongful arrest, he is neither Australian nor 80 years old.
