Re: Excellent timing
"What this old thing? Just £5 on Well Known Auction Site (tm)"
So having provided a cyberpunk dystopia, Google are moving on to more optimistic sci-fi.
Re: Taking the tea,
12 mugs of tea sounds reasonable to me. If I spent, say a Saturday at home I'll easily get through 7 or 8 pints mugs of tea before "caffeine lasites" (sometimes aka pub o'clock).
@Ledswinger "Friday afternoon journalism" - was Re: Wrong Art - Chuck's 9th Dan too.
I'm all for Friday afternoon journalism. In fact I'd like it all week long.
So ... is this just some honourary title cos he's the President, or something genuine like Kim Jung Il's golf prowess?
I realise that being "seen to be green" is kinda the point for a lot of people but I wish manufacturers would make them look like normal cars.
Re: In this country we use privatised electricity companies
I don't mind the odd outage as electricity's so cheap ... oh.
Re: O Canada
They had that big ruckus at Canary Wharf - aka One Canada Square. Will that do you, eh?
I'm getting more Luddite as the grey hairs multiply, but what problem does the internet-connected lightbulb solve?
Re: Call Quality?
I can't speak for the Nexus 5 but 4 was awful till it got Jellybean. Since then it's very good.
Re: Undecided as yet
I have a Nexus 4 with native Jellybean (Kitkat can't be far off) and there's no branding or GUI nonsense. There is a lot of Google stuff that I don't use and don't want.
In my experience native Android is a huge improvement over the crap-stuffed HTC I had before but I'd like a bit more chance to remove a lot of the Googly bits (though I can't be arsed to do much about it).
Nexus 5 looks good to me but I'll stick with what I have unless it takes a tumble into a pint.
I'm interested, but ...
I'm interested, but Feb 2014 seems a very optimisic date for delivery.

Yes he can (and did)
Just look at the countless programmes showing the Doctor and humans in space. I watched the documentary "Nightmare of Eden" over the weekend. Lots on insterstellar travel goings on - not to mention some of the most comical aliens you'll ever see. This sort of evidence is irrefutable.
There are 50 years worth of similar documentaries.
Re: The future!
I'd welcome them in my own city*. Taxi home for bus prices with no prams/drunks/tinny R&B and no need to make smalltalk with a driver. Yes please!**
* assuming they don't end up reeking of piss
** again, assuming they don't end up reeking of piss - it's worth repeating
Re: I want one
Dave126 in turn, you have taken me back to the last time I bought my nephew Lego for Christmas.
"Thousands! Of! Yahoo! Mail! Users!
... they're doing better than I'd thought, then.
In the meantime, we'll always have the monkey boy dance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RINizGmhrYo
So long Ballmer. You were tremendous fun. [raises imaginary beer]
Just open the cages
Let these fools take their own chances. It's a dog* eat dog** world.

Re: Mary had a little lamb, and it was always gruntin'...
I shall add poetry to the very long of things not to attempt on a Monday.
Roses are red
Voilets are blue
I'm often blunt
Gove is <redacted>
By Grudd that looks a good deal
Yes. The unlock pattern for my phone becomes very obvious if I've eaten crisps.
Re: We need more documentaries like this
No need for anonymous cowering, there. At least 90% of the people in this industry have worked with (or are) folks like that.
Auntie: happy birthday Dr Who! We've got you this
Dr Who: [unwraps] oh, overkill. You shouldn't have. No, really you shouldn't have.
"He is constantly in our faces about giving money to charity"
Churlish much? I've not heard Bob say much about charity since Live8. Hardly "constantly in our faces".
If someone offers you a trip to space, you take it.
Re: So how does this compare...
As the number of Chinese wot can't speak Chinese (~400m) is greater than the total number of USians (~300m), therefore it is greater than the number of USians wot can't English talk proper.
We (I) need an anti-joke chicken icon
Perhaps the boffins can now turn their attention to where bears make stool.
Shit off Zuck
... is my considered response.
An utterly sensible solution that looks utterly bonkers. Goodonyers Scottish canal boffins.
Stupidity? Malice? Both?
I really can't work out whether this is stupidity malice, or both. I suspect the former.
Ah NT4.0. I ran it for years after its official end of life and it never went wrong. Never.
It shows how tragic these UFO fantasists are. Whatever you think about its purpose, the SR-71 is a marvel of human engineering. That people can't appreciate what we're capable of without having to imagine little grey men is sad.
No such thing as bad publicity?
I mean, who knew AOL still existed?
Silly Norwegian government
This is a perfectly sensible decision ... if you ignore Streetview.
Being a juror is a serious business. You're asked to decide on something that could lead to someone doing a lot of time - or that an innocent person be punished and the guilty go free.
Don't talk about the case (on or offline), don't Google the defendants, etc. These rules might seem harsh but they're clear enough. Don't piss about.
Re: Fire up the pun-o-tron
I fear you'll attract a load of old bollocks here.
Re: It's not all that bad
Fresher than their usual burgers, then.
You seem to be suggesting that parents take responsibility for their children. That's not the 21st century way!
If my Twitter's anything to go by, they're really overestimating people's interest in the lizard-baby.
A very quick look at my browsing history will tell you all you need to know about my desire to watch mucky films online.
