It's aimed at a different market
We're not all hardcore gamers though. Those are the sorts of games I like* :something I can pick up for 20 minutes, dick about with, then go and do something else.
* a shame as I own a PS3 that does nothing more than regular iPlayer and the very occassional Tetris.
I expect that Zune's back in the list of trademarks to be reused. Somewhere below Clippy* and MS Bob*.
* may not have been trademarked. Meh.
You wouldn't steal a car...
I would if I could download it.
Use whichever's appropriate
Am I missing someting here?
If it can't wait, phone; if it can, email.
If it's some new instruction and you need to have no excuses from that feckless techie who never does his job, email and keep the read-receipts.
Coming up after the break: Sinclair pulls plug on QL, C5 also at risk.
It's a perfectly cromulent term. You just need to embiggen your word repository.
They should buy new shiny.
Damnit! Where's my coffee?
Vulture I vs Vulture 1
If that's their game, it's the spaceplane equivalent of Basil Fawlty's "it's a semi-tone higher!"
Hopefully one with better wheels than the trolleys I'm used to down Sainsbury's.
Private Finnance Initiative.
Dull facts aside, I prefer yours.
Wahoo! (was yeehaw)
Sorry for the "me too" but I have to express my delight at the thought of never mistakenly clicking on Expert Sexchange ever again. Bye bye you utter scumbags!
Vulture 2? As in the successor to Vulture 1? So where does the Playmonaut sit?
For any purpose not related to the proceedings
We're talking Angry Birds here aren't we?
That'll be fun
...when it makes it out to the provinces. Speaking for myself: if I'm lost it's usually somewhere where I don't want to pull out an Android, lest it get nicked.
"Target them with ads for anti-depressants?"
God that's depressingly likely. (+1)
Having just made a sarky "progress" remark at fancy new digital billboards, this genuinely does strike me as a step forward. Good luck with this, Germans!
A whole new advertising paradigm! That I can ignore.
Mr Knocked One Up In A Few Hours's site would've performed even worse on launch day. Bedroom coders knocking things up are not the same as creating scaleable web apps.*
* I'll concede that this wasn't a scaleable web app either after the launch day fiasco but you know what I mean...
It's spelled "eke", but I like "eek" better.
Re: Comments enabled?
[points up] Some of us can do more than carp anonymously.
"Manning is a dumb shite..."
That's very true.
Unfortunately us.mil seem intent on making an example of this dumb shite. He's already on suicide watch (as reported by El Reg). This seems little more than an attempt to break his spirit than to prevent him topping himself.
I really hope they don't execute this poor bastard but I fear they will.
Surely it should go a little like this:
J Ass: "I've not been charged with anything"
Court: "Oh righto, on your way then"
Prob best to wait
If the US military does end up murdering Bradley Manning this could be a very different movie.
There'll always be some content that Auntie's not licenced to show outside the UK. But you will get a rake of top quality content for a tenner.
If I lived abroad, I'd cough up for it if my local connection was up to the job (and they did an Android version).
If Wikileaks had any oil you could guarantee they'd have imagined some weapons of mass destruction invaded them by now.
Re: That's a very interesting quote
It's an excellent quote. It's from 1984; that book that was once a warning and now is a template for Western government.
Luckily Application X is likely to be a complete load of monkey kronk so if it asks too much, you're not really missing out by not installing it.
I don't think I've got a single app on FB and that means is my wall's less clogged up with crap. Well that and a consistent "see and app, block an app" approach...
It's a nice buzzword to throw around.
It genuinely does make a difference at the dev team level. As for stopping IT project failure? Stop moving goalposts and stop civil servants jumping ship so often that there's no accountability.
They are already
"Is your car modified in any way (including wheels)?"
My 2p: I don't think I've ever used "it's political correctness gone mad" without taking the piss before. Gender's a genuine indicator of risk and this change will be another excuse for the insurance cartel to dick us all.
