Just a reflection of the demands modern TV puts upon your brain i.e. none whatsoever, I'm sure it's possible to follow The Apprentice whilst doing 16 other things simultaneously.
As an Apple, iPad in particular, hating US resident Brit, relying on VPN technology to get my iplayer fix this announcement has sealed my fate as a future iPad owner. For those of you who believe that the BBC is crap, come have a taste of the inane censored pap that passes for free broadcast networks this side of the pond. I already pay $10 a month in VPN fees and will quite happily divert that to the Beeb, my only reservation is having to buy one of those bloody fondleslabs! We need a shattered iPad icon.
Why would you want to use
a 3TB drive for booting anyway? Shurely Shome Mishtake.
About effing time
title says it all.
What do you think
we stuff our faces with at every opportunity? Certainly not a salad!
The the elevation of Forfar Bridies to similar distinction. would be great to see the demise of the horrible pastry encased meat pureee that passes for a bridie these days. Might also put Greggs out of business, no bad thing... perhaps with the exception of their cream apple turnovers.
Should have been
Overpriced and overspecced
If you want a PMP then buy a $50 noname that will provide you with 4GB and is microsd expandable. There are tons of them around with far wider codec support, FM and recording. Use the extra cash to buy yourself a second hand netbook if you want to browse. Putting all this functionality into one small device means that it does nothing extremely well. The 32GB version is over $400 at the current exchange rate, bloody good if you're coming to the US for a holiday, for which I would be looking for a helluva lot more functionality (i.e. actually functioning) than this thing provides.
Make your sprog hate you with a passion for the rest of their life.
Yep that's the one
Must have been in Blue Thunder stealth mode.
Crushed Hard Drives
Probably not the ones with the data, they're currently residing in Thames House. No foil hat icon! Or indeed a black helicopter one. Eric Blair will have to do!
The post is required, and must contain letters.
Should be a legal process
A judge should be involved in the same way as granting of search warrants, also police should be liable for losses caused to legitimate businesses that they will inevitably screw up. "Sorry guv we fort it was .net not .org, whoops!"
A lot more would be sold
If they didn't insist on ridiculous prices for the electronic book. Every single one of the "Best Books of 2010" (in whose opinion I don't know but looking at some of them I wonder) is more expensive in the electronic format than the paper one. I have an ereader, and it will be confining itself to project Gutenberg until there is equity or better with paperback prices.
that this may go pear shaped, too much pre-production hassle is usually an indication that the film will be crap. Most unfortunate, as the source material should be brilliant fodder for a great film.
No prior art
Moses patented it without God having any record of prior art.
Humour Injection required
Title says it all.
Can I get a trade in
One very used B.Sc. Certificate, I want one of those Bachelor of Boffinrys, B.Bo.
Nickel and dimed to death
Phones, domestic and cell in the US get hammered, by little additions, I pay a tax on mine for the state library(???) which is one of only several which when added up account for about 15% of my monthly bill. When you start looking at the cellphone charges themselves they are approaching exorbitant, rural users get particularly shafted as there is often no choice of carrier. 5Gb per month is charged at $30, 700 minutes per month will cost you $50, unlimited messaging another $10, unlimited minutes with unlimited messages $90 plus $30 for 5Gb month.
Market isn't pointing
The potential profit is pointing, netbooks and tablets do not operate in the same sphere.
for a kettle cable. Well if you've got that sort of cash and you believe that this cable will reduce RFI on your Wank-Fi sorry Hi-Fi, then I have a bridge you might be interested in.
quicker and a lot more stable than the last build I tried.
Contortionist self harming Jobs.
"With that utterance, Jobs may have pulled off the non-too-easy feat of simultaneously shooting himself in the foot while putting his foot in his mouth."
I'd pay money to see that!
Libraries, jotters and netbooks
I hate the Windows 7 libraries, seems counter intuitive to my old hierarchical brain. I like my files to be stored in appropriately organized directories. Having said that, I do see a use for something like this GoogleJotter; increasingly I find that I use my dual core 4Gb laptop as a netbook, actually doing very little on it locally whilst essentially using it to access online services and files, and as an RD/VNC terminal for my other machines. When this lenovo kicks the bucket I may be looking for something similar to the GoogleJotter, hopefully the netbook manufacturers by then will have curtailed their expansionist ideas and realize the idea behind the netbook isn't a compact laptop but a frigging netbook and pitch their prices and specs accordingly.
Angela Lansbury when you need her?
No licence fee
But my cable (basic no premium channels) costs about $60 a month ($720 a year), with phone and internet it comes in at $194 a month. I'd rather pay $225 a year, I'd even watch BBC3, be better than the ad laden mindless drivel that we get here.
reminds me of
The whole DDD AAD debacle when CDs were the in thing, CD vs vinyl DVD vs BD, same shit different decade.
Don't ban the phone
Ban the user, you get caught using it you lose your driving licence, simple quick and effective.
One word for this person
Smarten up before we're all ant fodder... erm wait a minute.
will be watching for the demise off Vuze nee Azureus.
Paris, whipping, wind sounds like a weekend!
I have a $90 Argosy box hat will stream from TVersity and play MKV natively. so even $200 dollars is over the top.
Add another 100 quid
and you'd pretty much have a decent HTPC, which will do a helluva lot more than this fugly box!
Intellectual Property and Football
Surely the two terms are mutually exclusive.
Start the cull
Watching reality TV will probably qualify you to fulfill the UK quota.
I used to read the Graun
but they refused my Boffin STaTus. BaStArds.
is suffering from ED, website seems to have died.
Just the thought of all the tree huggers choking on the muesli as they read their morning news on their iPads.
Seems he's stuck on repeat.
Bit like the pap him and his band churned out, you wouldn't notice a scratch on the vinyl for hours.
back in the day
used to be known as corned beef legs, was a result of standing too close to the coal fire after coming in form the cold and wet that was the Scottish climate.
can you milk a franchise for.
Just the US?
Mainstream media in the UK is pretty much in the Jobsian pocket too, perhaps iPocket.
Works wonderfully, BBC have been messing around with iPlayer all week so I suspect something is in the offing. Open it up and charge us for it. With what I pay my piss poor US cable provider for the dross it has the cheek to charge for I would happily pay the BBC for it's content..
Oh I'd like some decent beer and the occasional curry/kebab too!
Just has to be
Set to vibrate.
Doesn't give you a market unless you hit the price breaks, looking at their website they have failed in that respect.
Given the amount of chemical industry around that area seems fair enough.
and I thought it through.
They should disconnect them until the user has fixed the problem, certainly Time Warner in the US will disconnect machines infested with spam mailers.
is not the same in the UK as in the US, MD is a postgraduate qualification undertaken by Bachelors of Medicine. It can also be the equivalent of a DSc, which is a higher degree than PhD and is awarded for significant contribution to an area of work, generally by the University in which you obtained your first degree.
Generally people who look down their noses walk into walls no matter what their qualification, I think the guy in question was merely miffed at being denied the right to use the title he had worked hard to attain. The assertion that medical doctors are only called doctor out of courtesy is not totally true, some have the required qualifications others don't. Personally I'd rather have a competent one no matter what their level of academic achievement. Speaking as one who has a PhD I can say I've met proportionately more prats with PhDs than without, whether that makes me a prat or not I don't know. I'm sure my colleagues probably have opinions on that matter.
