Oh dear. I quite liked Tumblr. Now I'll have to start calling it New Flickr.
There really is nothing these slimy little shites won't do for a few quid is there?
Re: Freeze it
Each to their own. You can keep your ice but I'll take mine with a splash of 1.5 billion year vintage water.
Re: Desire for a brand new combine harvester
Indeed. My interpratation was that the protagonist already has a combine harvester and was boasting of it in an attempt to get into ladies' pants
<- imagine that's a cider. Ooooh-arrr!
"Unlike the Nexus 4 there are no buttons on the front of the device"
There are no buttons on the front of the Nexus 4. Or at least there are no buttons on the front of my Nexus 4.
Re: Roast Lamb
The lamb from my local kebab shop does that already
Impressive bofinry but where's my flying car, damnit?
If FB's Android app hasn't improved since I last used it, a goatse launcher would be most apt.
"Updating dashboard software now, please pull over during the update."
And people complain about the original PS3 being big. Sheesh!
The value of investments can go down as well as up.
Do these things not apply to big banks?
They couldn't organise a nuke in a dictatorship.
They might as well divide the warhead between 20 000 schoolboy catapults.
I've invested in magic beans - which are entirely resistant to DDoS. Yeah take that Bitcoin!
"Can you walk into a Tescos, Asda, Lidl or Aldis and pick-up some Milk and a Head of Lettuce with a Gold bar or a Picasso?"
No but you can be confident the gold bar and Picasso will be worth something in 5 years time.
"Jimmy hat icon please." Re: Pfft
Would that be in the Scottish sense or the Tribe Called Quest sense?
One simply sells them to a fool. Finding that fool ought to be depressingly easy.
"I own half of Future MySpace"
If the case had dragged on for a couple more years, Zuck could've just given him 50p and called it quits.
Re: Needs to be housewife proof
You could probably have that kind of thing installed as an add-on module, if you really want it.
And thus the future unfolds with a whole new category of things-that-A&E-staff-get-to-laugh-about.
Re: This is a *huge* step forward.
I reckon, ironing would be *the* killer app that gets robo-assistance into so many homes.
Skynet at the cost of never ironing again? It's food for thought, admit it.
Re: North-West not North Midlands
There are no hard and fast rules, but my opinion is that the north west begins at Crewe - so Jodrell Bank is definitely just over the border.
Bang up to date, then. Next year I'm backing James Hargreaves for the Spinning Jenny
Re: Lies, damned lies and statistics
It didn't really need to end with a "Kzzzerrrt", it was pretty obvious by inference.
Yes it's definitely there, between the lines.
Re: Mel Gibson
Is that what they call the Scientology payments these days?
Re: How much you want to bet...
I now have an image of it going around and around on a spike like a mini version of the dubious meat on a kebab shop rotisserie.
Unwelcome as that mental image is, I admire the cruel streak. You may have one upvote and a tiny picture of a beer.
Re: It all depends on the water!
Yorkshire tea is also good in the Midlands. As a Lancastrian it pains me to admit this but I cannot tell a lie. Our water comes from Wales though, so I'm tempted to give the Welsh Brew a go.
Re: Chnaces are....
Did I just defend them?
You've just proved one can't be wrong all the time. Even PC World.
Re: The UK Civil Service has a code governing honesty?
"Don't get caught" would be my guess.
Re: Why though?
Seems he's a skilled hacker but not that bright.
Why not turn it off by default, Mark? If it's such a stellar feature people will turn it on of their own accord.
Re: Including fifteen different building codes? Hostile contractors?
Not to mention Linus popping round to swear at you over your choice of roof.
Such hubris to end on PARIS. Splendid hubris!
[raises tiny picture of a pint]
The last thing I saw on there was that colonic treatment someone passed on for larks.
55% off a hose up the jacksy ... where do I sign up?
Socialist haircuts seem to be heavily biased towards the bouffant spectrum, for socialist dudes at least.
I'm all for that. Call the telly the telly and all that.
Please, please, please have a round in Yorkshire. Formula E By Gum.
+1 for sarky quotes. Later I'll buy a hot drink from a "coffee scientist".
