Making "friendly fire" ever more deadly.
Why are Voda so hellbent on shooting themselves in the foot?
They really are laughably incompetant. I look forward to the day that mobile internet's good enough to sack them entirely.
PS if the Reg style guide doesn't already ban "information superhighway" with the exception of "prang on the information superhighway" I think it should. 10/10 for that one!
BNFL is a strange one, given the broad Tory support for the next generation nuclear power stations. Presumably the British taxpayers will pay the French to do it.
Something about the Competition Commission in a merger makes me smile.
I can't argue with the P45s heading to the Advisory Board on the Registration of Homeopathic Products and Herbal Medicines Advisory Committee. Presumably they'll dilute their giros with water and spin it out indefinitely. OK it's not nice to laugh at people losing their jobs but we shouldn't have been paying these charlatans in the first place.
And well done for keeping the BBC World Service. Given how far these bastards are up Murdoch's arse, this is a pleasant surprise.
It'll be difficult to callibrate as drviers sit in different positions depending on how knackered they are.
Thinking on how I read "proper" books in bed, the lack of auto-rotation sounds like a bonus to me.
The addition of tranlsation dictionaries suddenly makes this whole e-reader idea a lot more interesting.
Finally no "Roald Amundsen is a wanker"? I feel let down.
Is hooting and wailing in the press about lying execs really going to do wonders for that share price?
I'm no IT exec, maybe it is...
Every Windows problem is a great reason to use any flavour of linux....
OK I'm fond of banging the linux drum, it's true but +1 for that.
I'm no Ubuntu fan but they're right on this score. Those users who give a rat's hindquarters that their packages are completely "free as in speech" have Debian and other distros. Meanwhile the rest of us that don't think that MP3, binary drivers or whatever are ideological monstrosities can get on with our lives.
I've always used 2 partitions and would continue to do so were I to use Ubuntu. It might be fine for most of you but some users' hardware causes the upgrade to fail. This happens with every version.
Of course I'd make a backup before upgrading but having /home on a separate partition means I can reinstall without having to restore. Much less dicking about.
So where are their unfeasably large bollocks?
I thought it was a deliberate "looser".
...do not get me a sinister talking teddy bear!
I bet more women have been pulled in F458s though.
Don't ask me, I drive a Fiesta
THE LACK OF CAPS LOCK SHOUTING WAS A BIT DISAPPOINTING, TOO. FUNNY ALL THE SAME, THOUGH!
WELL DONE TESLA, ANOTHER OWN GOAL!
Of California Uber Alles fame?
Always first with the dubious features :o)
It's also mine.
If Moz wants to offer another search engine that's fine with me. I'll choose not to use it.
I agree. Also the people who are more interested in telly, those most likely to give a rodent's hindquarters about HD, are also most likely to pay for Sky.
It'll cost them A FEW sales from hardcore geeks. Most consumers buy a phone according to how pretty it is.
Downvote me if you like but that's how people choose phones.
If it all gets a bit too much, get off at the Bartons Arms for a lovely pint and some peace and quiet. You could even grab a bloody good Thai meal.
Damn I'm hungry.
That last line saved you from a (gasp) downvote.
Yes kids in saggy kecks look stupid but some people need to learn it's none of their 'kin business.
I've been filling these fora with similar comments, but the price is falling. Once we're seeing decent features for sub £100 I'll become more interested.
The lunatics have taken over the assylum. What's worse is the Daily Mail/Express reading mouth-breathers that make up this country can't see the problem with that.
Which has often been my standard reply to a ticket for any of our older production servers.
That has made my afternoon. Tonight I will raise a glass of Mr Shepherd's ale to the memory of Mr Babbage!
Rather like the retired railway staff that keep the non-Analytical steam engines going. I'm sure there'd be plenty of geriatroboffins who'd love a go at building one of these.
And insist that everyone who wants to program the beast should wear a stovepipe hat and grow appropriately fearsome Victorian facial hair.
...buying a laptop in the street, or down the pub for that matter, is fncking stupid. Don't do it.
Glad I live pretty much as inland as you can get in the UK
It was only the linuxy Android that made me take an interest in smartphones. Otherwise I'd just have got another, smaller dumbphone.
...chasing upvotes on the Reg Fora
Just as I was looking for an el cheapo laser printer.
I don't ask why, I just admire its magnificence.
It's a holiday in Antarctica, where there's nothing but the snow
A holiday in Antarctica, it's the place you want to gooooooo
Nope. £200 buys a lot of books, even shiny new hardbacks. And you can put them on shelves and make yourself look clever. The book ain't broke and I've no plans to fix it.
..."is a wanker". That made this review worthwhile for me. Nice one!
I didn't assert that but I agree. I base my agreement on years of badly written apps, stack overflows, Slammer and other comedic security gaffes.
Surely "when SHE glances down..."
That's beautiful. They should make it.
They can indeed mix them for you. Keeping a straight face while doing so may be asking too much
The comedy potential is increasing daily.
Own a Ford car? Check
Own a non-fruity phone? Check
Think Heston Blumenthal's an arse? Check
So I'm not cool. I can live with that.
About bleedin time.
How arrogant do you have to be to think you can behave like this* and keep a very public job?
* well, get caught behaving like this.
I fear our alien ambassador will spend far too much time dealing with slack-jawed Americans claiming to have had their botties probed by E.T.
Great time to be partnering a cricket spot-betting concern. Well done Voda!
Lucky basts. Try getting a contract for less than 24 months in the UK. It'll be PAYG for me when this on expires
Nice to see some technology advances that don't have me reaching for a tinfoil hat. Congratulations to the metallo-osseo-bofiins.
I'm going to end up thinking that these cuts are going too far, but...
Why do we have an Advisory Committee on Conscientious Objectors in a country with no conscription? Or did I just fall for some premature April Fools gag?
