1: Not everyone has an iOS device.
2: iTunes won't run on Linux.
3: Worst movie list ever.
"staff at Direct Gov working to remove duplicates."
"staff at Direct Gov working to remove duplicates."
Wouldn't it be better to merge duplicates rather than remove them?
I've heard of it.
Mine's the one with "Diogenes" on the nametag.
The TV Batmobile was originally a 386 cubic inch V8 powered Lincoln Futura concept car, sold to Barris for $1.00. (Lincoln are indeed a division of Ford Motor Company)
A company in the US now has a license to make replicas of it, for $150,000 a time!
(Black Helicopter because Bats has one of those too)
Group of people who like shiny things?
You're right. MS have missed all the boats.
My Motorola phone runs Android = Linux
My Sony Bluray & Amp both run Busybox = Linux
My Toshiba TV runs Busybox = Linux
My PCs & Laptop run Ubuntu = Linux
My MP3 runs RockBox = Linux
My SkyHD box runs Busybox = Linux (check Settings/Software/Details for 109 pages of GPL & BSD licences. Linus is mentioned by name.)
What the public need to realise...
Is that Rupert Murdoch owns more than one newspaper!.
Yes, but thankfully, Keanu has dropped plans to play Kaneda.
Anyone who wants the non-Steelbook version can just give Asda 13quid like I did last night.
What I'm really waiting for at the moment is an English-subtitled version of this:-
Evidence or GTFO.
I'll just leave this here...
We can but hope...
That they don't think of obtaining a DNA sample as part of the registration of a birth.
@ AC 16:04
"I'd be happy if the fucker were strung up in public as a warning to other scum of his type. "
No thanks. Bringing back the stocks should do nicely.
(If he's dead, he won't learn from his mistakes & will probably repeat them next time round.)
1: Get root
2: Install CyanogenMod
Dodgy Android apps?
He's been watching Mythbusters
Skip ahead to 6 minutes in.
(Explosion because... well.... Mythbusters!)
@ Mark C Casey
The Jabba scene existed all along.
Under the CGI slug is a now deceased Irish actor named Declan Mulholland,
delivering the same lines that the subtitles showed, while wearing a hideous fur waistcoat.
It's Boba Fett who was never there. Proof? I gots proof:-
(Mine's the one with a lighsabre in the pocket)
As seen on the side of a London bus...
Science can fly man to the moon.
Religion can only fly him into buildings.
We need BIG SPACE operas
Like Arthur C Clarke's "Rendezvous with Rama".
+1 for Doc Smith's Lensman, also his "The Skylark of Space" series.
How about a live-action Dan Dare?
@Paul Dx & Ashton Black - The subject is "The Best Sci-Fi Film _Never_ Made.", not "My fave flick".
Don't like Unity?
Just select "Ubuntu Classic" session when you log in.
Reprap can print all its plastic parts already.
As the design is open source, many owners do this to recoup their costs.
The answer lies in Top Gear!
Their Combine Harvester/Snowplough _nearly_ worked.
Given that combines have a power feed at the front for the harvester bits,
a snow blower attachment might have been a better idea.
BAA could keep a dozen or so of these attachments at each airport,
and when the weather starts looking dodgy, rent some combines from nearby farmers.
Cue Sony lawsuit in 3...2...1...
Just pass your text through Google Translate into a random language, then back.
If you're really paranoid, make a couple of passes through different languages before English.
This is the EU we're tallking about...
Therefore, all applications must be made in French.
Does Simon work here?
"In actual fact we hastily cobbled together a variety of randomly selected Google documents ... into a semi-coherent ... guide for senior management. Then went to the pub for two days…"
This sounds suspiciously like our new Company Handbook.
If you fire someone, you delete their access codes IMMEDIATELY, preferably before they've left the building!
Enough Betas already!
Give Adblock a chance to catch up.
I inform any advertisers who cold call me that they just dropped off the bottom of my preferred supplier list.
The same will happen to any firm I find using this type of cookie.
Not so much a temptation...
As Tivo/Virgin making you an offer you can't refuse.
See Slashdot:- http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/11/02/15/2354228/TiVo-To-Brick-All-Remaining-UK-PVRs-On-June-1
A phrase for Wogu to practise...
"Would you like fries with that?"
Mailing Preference Service?
Gov't should filter any database sold to private sector via this, because NO-ONE wants junk mail!
"Mine's the one with the Flux Capacitor in the pocket - going to go back to the past, to some time shortly before legislators were lobbied to enable the MPAA, RIAA, and friends to pull off the amazingly consumer-unfriendly feats they have, so far."
This has already been done _by_ the MAFIAA. JFK was about to rule against their formation.
The reason the iPhone doesn't have a radio...
Is that having a radio would mean users could listen to music without buying it from iTunes!
Stealing LIVE power lines?
That's a Darwin award right there
I'll just leave this here:-
Should come with a pair of red braces!
Not for me.
Would rather have a bigger battery & Nvidia ION/Tegra graphics.
No Facebook, no infection.
That is all.
Boeing X-20 anyone?
Pics are a dead ringer for the above.
Anyway, Thumbs up for moving away from "Spam in the Can" spaceflight.
Title goes here...
Bets the US will schedule Assange's espionage trial to begin on May 3rd?
The UN has proclaimed this date to be "World Press Freedom Day", and the 2011 celebration is to be held in Washington DC.
In other news, if gubmints don't want their dirty laundry aired in public, they shouldn't put them on a USB stick & leave it on the bus!
Not Motorola, thanks
I got bitten when they refused to update Android 1.5 on the Dext.
So until I'm due to upgrade, it's been rooted & 2.1 installed.
Originating IP block assigned to Langley, Virginia perhaps?
Won't somebody think of the children?
Who WANT to view smut!
This looks exactly like
The "Comtiva N700" I just saw in Tesco's for 299
The trick with Star Wars...
Was to NOT shoot anything in the Trench, just dodge.
That was worth many bonus points for "Using the Force".
Pacman had a fatal flaw - Once you passed 3million points, it started listing its source code on the screen.
Nostalgia fans might like to google for "MAME" - The Multi Arcade Machine Emulator.
Adblock in the market?
Didn't think so.
For overseas calls...
Keep an airhorn next to the phone.
Had one of these calls at the weekend
Caller ID said "Out of Area" ie. overseas.
Foreign-sounding woman asked for me by name and said she was "responding to my computer problem".
Kept them on the line for a good 30 minutes claiming I couldn't get their downloaded fix to run, before I told them that I was using Linux!
