Post-Christmas I appear to be made of cheese.
Black hole fanboi? Guilty as charged, though I don't feel the need to attack, say, pulsars and quasars in internet fora.
It's a figure of speech, meaning small.
For example jockeys are larger than a pint but referred to as pint-sized.
If it allows me to shine a massive bat logo on the clouds I'm in! Otherwise...
Dear HPC nerds
On powering up, please, please someone say "Gordon's Aliiiive!"
Yoda Christmas tree lights! R2-D2 Christmas tree lights! It'd take me til next Christmas to decide which to go for.
"I don't understand the physics so I'll comment on the font"
TBH I've been doing the same myself.
Show up, eat the meal, have a few drinks on the bastards, leave earlyish. Thus avoiding being the one that gets talked about/asked to see HR the next day.
How about giving me £30 to go and get pished with my real friends instead?
Perhaps that explains why there's no Opera :o)
Perhaps the comparison was more in terms of you can pick it up, tit about with it for 10 minutes then put it down and get on with your day.
Nice. Now lets have an Android version.
"Thank you for visting the solar system"
"Mammoth" (with sarky quote fingers when spoken) surely
Lucky to have a shedload of beer in the car.
To add "... even if it was American pish" would be churlish.
Does the Apple patent cover the belm?
* for those of you who didn't grow up in the North in the 70s/80s, Google it
I'm not really sure who the Kardashians are. They're in the news a lot but I've no idea why.
007's spot on though (as far as celebutard culture goes in general) and kudos for turning down the wedding photo money.
It's more like they're giving you 30 days to decide you can't live without it. I reckon a lot change their minds in that time.
I'm not disputing your suggestion that they "aggressively and maximally monetize" users' data in that time, though.
To be fair to Distrowatch
Distrowatch admit as much and never make any grand claims for any distro's positiion in their rankings.
I'm a huge fan of their cameras and I'm due a new phone in May. Not a pink one though.
PRINT "Hello, world! "
They were a lot more polite than I ever was.
This is a fantastic idea. I'll buy one to support them even if I can never make the time to tit about with it,
Or put it on Twitter
It's known as RUSSIAN. Bloody xenophobes
Ah if only I were looking for a new commentard name...
And what if Mr May gets caught doing something reprehensible?
(AFAIK Mr May isn't up to anything reprehensible - Code Monkey lawyers)
I wasn't in the least bit tempted. Price is similar to a netbook for a machine that's useless offline. You're right about tablets, too. I still use my aging Acer Aspire One quite a lot but if it does give up the ghost I don't expect to replace it, especially with a laptop upgrade due next year.
In case any of you are in the slightest doubt as to what a daft idea this is, re-read the article and replace "Facebook" with "MySpace". You'll be rewarded with a vision of what this phone will be in 2 years time.
"Strange new slang term for penis?"
Chopper is a very well-established slang for penis. Get over yourself.
A child's windmill in sight of the camera would've done the trick
If I crash my car can I sue him for ineffective witch-doctoring?
They'd probably see I went to the cashpoint next. Nosey basts
So the worried terrorist gets the manual search including HM rubber glove up the jacksy I expect.
It's mostly Guardian readers trolling the comments
It being the Mail, maybe someone decided internal links give you cancer
Just have both!
... then registries can fleece businesses twice for each domain. I mean that's what these proposed TLDs are really about, right?
The time is nigh for some other search engine to do what the young Google did (i.e. get search right) but MS is not the company to do it.
Google shunned all the portal crap and focussed on good search results. While today's Google is nowhere near the crapness of the search engines it replaced, can anyone remember when they last added anything that made search better?
Roughly a linguine then.
Granny-friendly Ginger soul/spoof pomp metal crossover tribute band?
Beer because, well because.
You were doing quite well. Windows 7 is pretty usable, after all. Now this one's going to suck isn't it?
[wipes away a small tear]
Seems harsh that he should lose his job. He's no hardened criminal. A complete tool no doubt, but a well-intentioned tool.
Nice try Hague
"Look at the other countries, the foreigners. Aren't they bad, censoring the net?"
We're not fooled you bald shite.
Is the selection of books as rubbish as in bricks and mortar WH Smiths? I don't want to buy this thing if all I can read is James Corden's autobioghraphy.
... the blue one's pretty
I saw two Android-toting friends use unlock gestures this weekend. I was even thinking I should get one of those for mine.
Small screen (well small phone)
That's exactly what I'll be looking for when my contract ends. This Desire is great but just too big
Sounds generous IMO
He's taking the piss
No way do wheelbarrows cost that much!
The NT News could well overtake the Irish Daily Star as my favourite newspaper. Top stuff!
