People, glass houses, and casting stones springs to mind a far as that harridan is concerned.
Multitasking = doing more than one thing with less than 100% of your ability.
Re: she was "appalled" by what she found there
You sure it didn't return Daily Mail?
guilty or not
The plod will keep any information gleaned. You will have to go through the same convoluted procedure to ensure its destruction that currently you have to go through to get your DNA removed from their DBs.
Re: I remember a review ..
AIM 65, cut my assembler teeth on that thing, thermal printer and 16 segment LED.
Apply the same rules
If this had been a worker drone, how long would they have been given to produce the claimed certification before they were fired.
Re: Nook color
Did that on day of purchase, dual booting since then.
is a fine little tablet, but to really take on the iPad they need a 10" version. If they can do that at the right price point then the world will be their oyster, when I say right price point I don't mean matching I mean undercutting significantly.
Multiple Choice Qs are not
Necessarily easy. Exam questions need to be very carefully written and the answers in a multi-choice section need just as much attention. A-E should always be the option -0.5 points for a wrong answer liberal use of multi stage questions involving interpretation of diagrams/tables can make these sort of Exams more challenging than the traditional written exam.
Installed it last night
After fighting with it to install wifi drivers, and then fighting with it to browse my network I fought with it to stop crashing firefox. After 3 hours of this crap I threw in the towel, Not my happiest Ubu experience by a long chalk.
Google and Apple
Hope you're supping with a very long spoon!
Hmm they really are pariahs!
Completely agree, the point of terrorism is to terrorise your victims into modifying their behaviour either to their discomfort or to satisfy your terrorist goals. If you ignore the terrorists, in terms of everyday life by not modifying your behaviour then they cannot achieve their goals. The whole war on terror is a wet dream of the corporations.
Re: $2 or $5 to copy to the system
Yes it is but not to provide me with an HD digital copy of my BD for a cost of $5 or and SD one for $2
$2 or $5 to copy to the system
charging for material I already own, pretty neat trick. I think as this is largely in the distributors interest this service should be free.
I think some other term needs to be used rather than Intellectual Property. Given the number of IP suits that are being taken to court that seem to be anything but Intellectual. Software patents and the like should be Bleeding Obvious Property, grumble flicks could be Gratification Property, music could be Predictably Generic Property and Hollywood's output would be Total Lack of Inspiration Property.
Only available in White, double the price and half the spec. Comes with free beachball.
Re: MRI + metal tattoos
burns have been reported with tattoos and MRIs, doesn't have to be iron, other metals react to strong magnetic fields. http://www.ajronline.org/content/187/5/W556.long
Re: I wonder..
He's always been dead to me.
to buy a Zune?
My girlfriend of the time reckoned the only good thing about the movie was that Patrick Swayze was dead for most of it.
starring Keanu Reeves, graduate of the Woodentop School of Acting.
wrong price point
For about two thirds the price you can get a normal wireless router which will take about the same amount of time to setup. Really can't see the point of this device apart from the bag of tricks.
Re: New Math?
I think you missed out Estate agents and Bank managers in there! Second hand car salesmen are angels in comparison to this lot.
Firewire & SCSI
had similar price premiums for a long time, it affects their uptake rate and wont be sustainable I bet.
Contempt of Congress
"The criminal offense of "contempt of Congress" sets the penalty at not less than one month nor more than twelve months in jail and a fine of not less than $100 nor more than $1,000"
Be nice to see some execs wallowing in the pokey.
Next step full immersion.
El Reg units
I can see the need for a standardized broadband speed unit. Possibly the ONIP, a direct measure of how long it takes to download the SD version of One Night In Paris.
Paris, well who else could it have been?
No mushroom cloud icon
So no nuke app then.

Do it once,

High School grades, purlease!
Though probably not in English, her grasp is somewhat limited apparently!
I have one of these, can take up to a 2TB hard drive, does 1080p plays just about anything including RMVB, and MKVs. Will stream Youtube and a few other web based video, and when used in conjunction with Playon can stream just about anything, Netflix, iPlayer etc. Will also stream Internet radio is you have a stream link. Has Upnp access to any media servers on your home network, and indeed will stream from any network shares. Material can be loaded onto the device via the network although this process is slow. Bare with no HDD you should be able to get one for under $90. It even has a bittorrent client built in. Firmware updates are regular and the firmware itself seems to be readily hackable for those interested in that sort of thing.
It's the fiddling that makes it so much fun! Oooer missus!
Not "becomes" it already is, and has been since it started.
Not on your Christmas card list then?
Altoids tins in the States have taken over from the non-pc tobacco tins.
Trivia quote is priceless
"Her scene in "Big Momma's House 2" and "Tropic Thunder" was deleted."
Grammar as per IMDB.
Are you effing kidding, Archos stuff is notoriously pricey and comes with lots of nickel and dime shit.

This is not unusual
The broadcasters here (USofA) are almost all politicized to some extent, the Occupy Wall Street protests were effectively ignored for the first 3 weeks or so, in fact the BBC coverage was being punted around US facebookers to call attention to ssomething that should have been front page and headline news. News in the USA is opinion, editorialisation, conjecture (hysterical and otherwise) and self interest. In depth analysis and objective comment have given way to airhead newsreaders and 15 second soundbytes. How else can you make sure you have working class republican voters, now there's an oxymoron.
what the dead peasant, sorry essential personnel, payout for Jobs might have been.
Amazon App store
Has the same wording for Free Apps, Has done since it's inception, never caused any hassle there.
And for this!!!
"The upshot is a very thin battery which, Sony reckons, can drive annoying musical birthday cards and such."

Titmuss 1 & 2
didn't realize the Leslie shagger was so involved in Tech, suppose GPS guidance may be useful in directing various objects towards various orifices.
Paris cos we aint got no Abi.
The larger HDDs
Do seem to have a higher failure rate, no absolute figures on this apart from the number of 1 egg reviews on Newegg, and even the best 1TB drive has 10% of its reviews as 1 egg almost always due to drive failure.
Constant channel volume
Next up. Switching from one channel to another can cause you to be jumped out of your seat as the audio volume levels from channel to channel can be almost an order of magnitude different.
The ultimate word, seems they don't want to go to Scunthorpe. The app says $96 to buy, Wtf!
