Re: Better reception?
Is that why I lost a shedload of channels when they switched off analogue round here?
I've little time to watch TV so it's not much of a problem though the lack of BBC4's a pain.
Very , very true.
Re: Twitter leaves you wide open
Don't say anything on Twitter that you wouldn't put on a huge billboard next to a photo of your face. Never forget it's very, very public and act accordingly.
Re: Engraved handle on a kitchen knife...
That knife is one of the two things on that list I'd consider making space for and I've no illusions about being a "proper" chef (let alone Heston, whose food is pretentious beyond belief IMO).
The other's the pasta maker.
$1bn buys a lot of grainy cat photos, it seems.
Re: on the rear you'll find a 3in LCD...
The Wales, as a unit of area, is not applicable. The screen should correctly be described as 0.5443 linguini.
I see the pound's took another hammering against the Galactic Groat.
I have little more than another "me too" to add to this. OPERA acted entirely correctly in this matter, demonstrating science working at its very best and fully deserve their applause. A crying shame if this is the only reason.
2012 and still no support for long file names? Pffft!
Yup. I grew up in Lancashire where even fat lads can exceed the speed limit down the right hill.
As the article says, it's a bit pricey but my birthday's coming up so if anyone fancies buying me a four pack of Piers Morgan I'd be very grateful :o)
I like the idea of music collection-themed garments. Anyone fancy a Grateful Dead discography kaftan or a Sunn O))) discography monk's habit? Just try not to think of the Iggy Pop discography transparent kecks.

Re: Bring e'm on!
My preferred defence against QR-based attacks is not to bother with them. From never having seen anyone else use them it seems that's standard.
+1 for beer!
Inevtiable rounded corners comment
Move into banking, sue all other banks because their debit and credit cards have rounded corners.
On me way already...
In that case you don't end up working for micro-managing dicks. A lucky escape.
Anyone else think the second one looks like a toaster?
Jawas appear to strip it for parts in 3... 2... 1...
Maybe some readers would've found the JOKE ALERT icon helpful.
Re: $800 for 3/8ths of an ounce?
Jeebus! Things have certainly changed since I was into that sort of thing.
A DSLR-toting chum has an S95 (possibly S90) and gets superb results.
Being a "posh compact" kind of photographer (i.e. I like the odd arty shot but am too lazy to lug a DSLR around) I'm very tempted to upgrade.
Obligatory Dom Joly Comment
I'M IN A LAB! A LAB!
NO IT'S RUBBISH!
I've just noticed the funky mouseover thing on your SPB banner. Very nice.
(For fellow commentards, it seems to need Chrome.)
That was my first thought. Surely they've enough lossmaking retail space as it is...
Re: Back to the 90s
Agredd. I still miss my Moto V66.
I'm pondering looking at the smaller 'droids come upgrade time.
Re: I am disappointed
One that extends through time? Like one that you* shove in the fridge for later?
* other people. Pies don't last long in this house.
With LOHAN under the truss, some (longish) rails under each wing should hold her securely through the buffetting of the ascent, but provide little resistance when the rocket kicks in.
So is it tiny to make the process quicker (or cheaper) or just to show off?
I'm impressed either way and looking forward to when they embiggen it.
Re: Never when it is used
It's not libel or slander. There are Catholic priests doing time for unlawful sex with minors the world over.
They should put their own house in order before telling people who they can and can't marry.
Re: yeah, but so what
Discoveries of this nature ALWAYS yield new technologies - we just don't know what they are, yet. The fun part will be finding out.
Re: I just hope we get some clear skies
Thank you Micheal!
Daily Mail readers (and that BBC Horizon prog about it): ZOMG we're all going to die!
Reg readers: aurora time if we're lucky (though in my case it'd have to be a doozy of a storm to produce an aurora visible in the Midlands).
Possibly my favourite game of all time. Pure moronic joy! I never managed to complete Beef Curtains though.
The Playstation port was excellent as well.
I loved the original. This actually looks rather good. Maybe time to get the thumbs out of retirement.
There are plenty of basic phones available for under £20 (if you shop around you can find them with a tenner of calls pre-paid). Being just calls and tect devices, you won't see any in these esteemed pages but they're prefect for me mam who doesn't want a smartphone.
With a battery life measured in days I'm tempted to "upgrade" myself.
Re: Still waiting...
There are already plenty of fish you can stick in your ear*
* admittedly none of the available fish can translate what your inebriated Geordie friend says and he'll be even less intelligible when you've got a sardine jammed in your lughole. :o)
Re: The confused protester
To me that suggests that it's not just your traditional protesters (to stereotype: your dog-on-a-ropers) that think that what big business and this goverment are up to is vile.
A total cop out (or kopp out in deference to the German legospacemeisters?)
Lots of potential downsides for Ford to guard against, as my astute fellow commentards have listed above but it does strike me as a very pleasing gesture.
LOHAN to REHAB
Oh you guys!
Cut spending FAIL
Cut national debt FAIL

You really don't need fancy lights to telegraph you're a complete tool. The Audi badge does that well enough already.
The difference being Unite won't be trying to "bomb some sense" into Carlsberg.
Re: "Have you ever actually been there?"
Yes. From memory both the local water and local beer were excellent.
Re: What's a pageview?
Tis true. I contribute to a blog and reckon at least half my stories' hits are me, concerned that I've made another typo.
"over the course of millions of light years"
What's that in linguini?
Beer, well, because.
Re: The most important thing...
We can send Bieber up there. It won't change the course of the KILLER SPACEROCK but it'll be a definite improvement.
Both board and box have rounded corners. Are Apple's lawyers aware of this?
Duties? No lo sé.
Just keep Aladdin away from any church towers.
Urika-ka-ka-kaaaa. That is all.
