"Jimmy hat icon please." Re: Pfft
Would that be in the Scottish sense or the Tribe Called Quest sense?
One simply sells them to a fool. Finding that fool ought to be depressingly easy.
"I own half of Future MySpace"
If the case had dragged on for a couple more years, Zuck could've just given him 50p and called it quits.
Re: Needs to be housewife proof
You could probably have that kind of thing installed as an add-on module, if you really want it.
And thus the future unfolds with a whole new category of things-that-A&E-staff-get-to-laugh-about.
Re: This is a *huge* step forward.
I reckon, ironing would be *the* killer app that gets robo-assistance into so many homes.
Skynet at the cost of never ironing again? It's food for thought, admit it.
Re: North-West not North Midlands
There are no hard and fast rules, but my opinion is that the north west begins at Crewe - so Jodrell Bank is definitely just over the border.
Bang up to date, then. Next year I'm backing James Hargreaves for the Spinning Jenny
Re: Lies, damned lies and statistics
It didn't really need to end with a "Kzzzerrrt", it was pretty obvious by inference.
Yes it's definitely there, between the lines.
Re: Mel Gibson
Is that what they call the Scientology payments these days?
Re: How much you want to bet...
I now have an image of it going around and around on a spike like a mini version of the dubious meat on a kebab shop rotisserie.
Unwelcome as that mental image is, I admire the cruel streak. You may have one upvote and a tiny picture of a beer.
Re: It all depends on the water!
Yorkshire tea is also good in the Midlands. As a Lancastrian it pains me to admit this but I cannot tell a lie. Our water comes from Wales though, so I'm tempted to give the Welsh Brew a go.
Re: Chnaces are....
Did I just defend them?
You've just proved one can't be wrong all the time. Even PC World.
Re: The UK Civil Service has a code governing honesty?
"Don't get caught" would be my guess.
Re: Why though?
Seems he's a skilled hacker but not that bright.
Why not turn it off by default, Mark? If it's such a stellar feature people will turn it on of their own accord.
Re: Including fifteen different building codes? Hostile contractors?
Not to mention Linus popping round to swear at you over your choice of roof.
Such hubris to end on PARIS. Splendid hubris!
[raises tiny picture of a pint]
The last thing I saw on there was that colonic treatment someone passed on for larks.
55% off a hose up the jacksy ... where do I sign up?
Socialist haircuts seem to be heavily biased towards the bouffant spectrum, for socialist dudes at least.
I'm all for that. Call the telly the telly and all that.
Please, please, please have a round in Yorkshire. Formula E By Gum.
+1 for sarky quotes. Later I'll buy a hot drink from a "coffee scientist".
Re: Camera watching me, watching them...
It's a problem I'd rather not have but if it comes to it I'll gaffer tape over the shutter. Creepy bastards can fuck off.
So I Twit to buy something then go down the shop and swipe my credit card? How is this better than ... just going down the shops with my credit card?
Forgive me if this is a stupid question. I'm not much of a shopper.
"11-YEAR-OLD code wizard"
Aka "exaggerate the skills of the idiot who was able to get around our idiot security".
Re: I thought 2012
You're right. 2012 was the the year of the lawyer. As was 2011, 2011, etc. and so on.
What is that thing in the top left? THAT'S NO MOON!
Nice to gloat at a Tory failure that isn't fucking over the poor and vulnerable.
That is cobblers. These HDD companies do R&D and that ain't cheap.
Storage is getting exponentially cheaper. and has been for decades. If you want to save money, buy the not-quite-the-latest model.
Zynga's stable of timewasters and their "post some shite as status" features were a huge factor in driving me off New Facebook. Even more than the morons, pictures of offspring, copy/pasted mumbo-jumbo, &c.
I guess what I'm saying is I'm grateful to them.
"You'll be back! Mark my words ... you'll be back!"
Not a chance, New MySpace. Not a chance.
Is it coincidence that this announcement was made a few weeks after Gerry Anderson's death?
Re: with any luck...
Instant (and welcome) earworm for me!
Re: If your names not down your not coming in..
I'd much rather we had green energy from nuclear powerplants
I'm cancelling my subscription!
The Antique Code Show award going to Lemmings is typical of the anti-Carmageddon BIAS that has ruined this once-fine website. Your writers are nothing but paid SHILLS gobbling away at the Amiga/Psygnosis danglies for all the filthy lucre you can get. And the readers are just SHEEP. SHEEP damnit!
Where's the Reg tombstone icon when I need it?
Just leave a box next to the pyramid. The cats will use that.
Re: Tablet computer has slot for SD card - Surface deficiency
@Eadon - Buying an SD card. Yeah that's an equivalent pain in the hole to extending your house. Nice analogy.
