Trolling aside, I'm with you. I expect my use-case to be "broken netbook" and not before.
Re: "XXXX, your friends are missing you"
If FB were to include "occassionally receives a nagging email" as an active account, that really would be taking the piss.
Not that I'd rule it out as the IPO approaches and marketroids eye their bonuses.
You don't have to read it
Just block the inane ones. Or don't friend them in the first place.
What? You have inane friends? What on earth for?
I did this: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=facebook+delete+account+permanently+link
Other than needing a browser, internet connection and the tiniest idea what you're doing, it all seems pretty straightforward.
It's not a bubble, bitch
Keep telling yourselves it's not a bubble.
Cheers will play with tonight
The lack of text-jiggling is a deal-breaker for me but it looks like one to follow closely...
They're welcome to look at my profile
All it revels is a love of taking the piss
Going public in 2012
Just before the exodus really gains momentum. Only a fool would touch FB with actual money.
Excellent stuff! I'll have a gross. Send them immediately to the shark tank in my hollowed out volcano.
Very interesting, but...
That little glimpse of the future makes Sky suddenly look a lot more interesting. Not interesting enough to change my mind on "Murdoch is an evil, evil bast and won't be getting any of my money".
It's all cobblers anyway
It doesn't matter how much you spend on a telly when the overwhelming majority of content is utter arsewater.
Is LED backlighting ever going to make My Family funny? Is 3-D going to stop you wanting to smash things as soon as Adrian Chiles opens his stupid mouth? Is internet connectivitiy going to allow you to download a less smug Simon Cowell?
"The last thing we want is for anyone to get hurt,"
Anyone outside of Chinese labour camp-style factories anyway.
£250 for a decent performer is about the point where I am interested.
Not new but still saddened by what I (sometimes) read.
You could just wait a day or two. Surely there must be something else to fill the void til a new Doctor Who arrives?
And eventually his intereference will lead to the UK having little stake left in the industry. What a complete tool
Well done plod.
Those arrest quotas won't fill themselves and this is far easier than investigating burglaries.
Welcome to the Big Society everyone!
Very demotivating for the students who will watch their hard work turn to the usual semi-literate wikibollocks in a matter of weeks but full marks for creative lesson-planning.
A tiny big of convenience in return for making my mobile much more attractive to muggers. I won't use it.
Now will anyone help me smash this loom?
Re: "WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDRENNNNNNN!"
Did you write that in a Dalek voice? I read it in one. Well done sir or madam
Or them parrots in string vests. They were good.
Though retirement is a step up from that stupid, stupid, stupid redesign they had.
Do you work for SCO perchance?
Or should it be asset?
MS - Ballmer
MS shareholder is right, though the industry will miss his apelike slapstick buffoonery
I like it
This is the sort of thing I'll be looking for at upgrade time. I like my Desire but it's just too thirsty and, well, too big. When the Desire was being fixed I realised how much I missed having a small phone.
HTC seem keen on refreshing their handsets reguarly so with a year or so to run I'll be looking at the next revision.
"doesn't experience Force 9 earthquakes"
This is a very important point that the more shrill parts of the media (and some that should know better) have chosen to ignore.
What he says on 22nd
"My bad everyone. It turns out it was all a load of Bronze-age superstition that some of us all took a bit too seriously. Now how about we all stop blowing each other up over who's invisible friend is best and just - y'know - get on."
Well I can dream, can't I?
There's something in that book about it being easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. It doesn't stop these bastards lining their pockets.
"It won't have any effect on customer-facing roles,"
Thanks, Capita spokewonk, that makes it so much easier to swallow. The fact that it'll be server admins losing their jobs and the council's servers being administered from several timezones away.
Great move, Capita. Time to break out the bubbly, toot and hookers!
Do the apps get comments?
We can always help drive up the rating. You shitters.
I'll go along, see if they miss the iceberg this time!
It makes perfect sense for this type of display. Hopefully some Ricoh boffins are enjoying a big pay rise for this one.
Not just you*
I'm a broad-minded chap but I find the whole business of hookers sordid and, well, sad.
* aka me too, I know
"Until Apple figures out how to get around that weakness..."
Surely "Until Apple figures out how to MAKE MONEY OUT OF that weakness, then you'll have this issue."
Re: People use PS3s for gaming now?
I hear some people do. Crazy!
Sony aren't content with going to the toilet with their trousers still up just once are they?
Still, cheers for the warning. As my PS3's little but an iPlayer watcher now I'm in no rush to upgrade anyway. Good luck to those of you that use it for games!
Now you're talking!

He likes em tall.
I've always said our trains are a bit pony
Mine's the one with Dick van Dyke's Bumper Guide to Cockney Slang in the pocket.
Gnonsense if you ask me. Improved clock speeds are the friend of the dictactor and revolutionary alike.
Just Bubble numbers?
I just dowloaded it from their website. For free. Silly, silly Ballmer.
One less idiot
To quote (possibly misquote) Bill Hicks "We lost an idiot. The world just got lighter."
Re: 3 cheers
Yeah. I loved Nathan Barley, too.
In which case you might as well spend £350 on a netbook. Or am I missing something?
If I were offing some Vegas type and dumping him in a freshly-dug hole in the Nevada desert, the last thing I'd want is to arrive in a Googlecar.
You might *think* you'd wiped the car's history...
I agree with the overwhelming majority of your post. It's just the word "beginning" I object to.
I always like it when the pigs show up for breakfast.
