...do not get me a sinister talking teddy bear!
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?
Muphry strikes again
Not a single phone call? I doubt that. They're just not counting the ones that are taking the piss.
They're late to market but the Windows name will encourage some, deter very few (informed groups like us Reg commentards excepted) and be a matter of complete indifference to the majority.
If there's a pretty enough handset, Windows Phone will be a success.
For once RMS seems not to be foaming at the mouth. Good luck in sticking to that, RMS!
At least it's not "spokeswonk".
Presumably the central locking works if you do it in the old-fashioned way (key in the lock, rather than the plipper).
It's Keith Flint from the Prodigy
People give information about current Interpol investigations over Facebook?
... but boo fucking hoo, student lady.

I'm still never buying another iPod though
Presumably it's also a four legged biped.
Presumably these are still in Beta?
Don't get me wrong, I'm sorry for those who suffer for Tourette's but it's bloody funny.
That's made my (previously crappy) day
The word chrome refers to the browser UI (i.e. everything that's not the page you're browsing).
Just in case you're still struggling, the "i.e." I used does not refer to Internet Explorer.
