"Jewish" might indicate that deliveries or communications might be unwelcome on Saturdays, for example.
Boulanger also run a discount network of shops called Electro Depot, which carries not-quite-cutting-edge stuff (read: last season's Boulanger stuff) at reasonable prices.
A "positive" defence such as "I did it for the greater good" etc. is not possible under the Espionage Act, and given that anyone who knows about jury nullification (something this trial would be made for) would be filtered out during the jury selection process, he'd be certain of a guilty verdict, and all that that implies.
As title - Clarke just got the location wrong.
Why not just use VLC instead of Kodi?
If it comes with "Windows with Bing", then the OEM didn't pay anything for the Windows install, so you can blow it away without remorse.
XP came *after* ME!
...or, à la Red Dwarf, that they effectively own everything, having left the light on at home and made NORWEB the greatest financial and military force on Earth on the basis of the debt you owe them.
"I have a scoop for you. I stole his [Leary's] act. I camouflaged it with punchlines, and, to really throw people off, I did it before he did."
...but I guess he never specified which one.
Ah, the good old days, when domestic violence was great comedy...
As someone said recently, it's the least we can do, and unfortunately the way things are it's the most we'll be able to do.
They'd sell a lot more laptops if they offered better than 1366x768 resolution for less than a king's ransom...
Apple already did, shirley?
Asking for a friend...
I've heard they may be useful to aliens as fuel for their spaceships (if your name is Al Bundy, at least).

The only ones who will be able to afford to consume will be those who already own the robots, or at least own the rights to their output. The rest of us get to starve.
We're already at the stage where industry doesn't really need consumers, and in fact the financial sector doesn't really need industry, just QE and other forms of government welfare/bailouts. Socialism for the rich, etc.
DON'T DATE ROBOTS!!!!!
If we're not working, then where are we going to get the money to "get" the things the robots are making?
The only solution AFAICS that doesn't end with pitchforks and the 0.01% being strung up from lampposts is a universal basic income scheme. It'll either be that or: http://marshallbrain.com/manna1.htm

Equally, they must never worry about getting flu jabs, because there's no evolution...
Isn't it referring to something like a hippopotamus, or a rhino? Much more likely than a dino, at any rate.
It's a trap!

As seen in Dr Who, of course...
And only one letter away from DosBox...

Looks like too much (cosmetic) dirt and/or texturing on it to be the 70s Mattel version, plus the guns on the wingtips of the 70s version are black, and you'd have to push R2D2's head down almost flush with the ship to get the wings to lock in attack position.
Will the Tramiel estate sue for trademark infringement?

Expletives deleted, of course...
I suspect an embedded RFID element in there somewhere...
