Re: Freeze it
Each to their own. You can keep your ice but I'll take mine with a splash of 1.5 billion year vintage water.
Re: Desire for a brand new combine harvester
Indeed. My interpratation was that the protagonist already has a combine harvester and was boasting of it in an attempt to get into ladies' pants
<- imagine that's a cider. Ooooh-arrr!
Re: As a guy who once was paid good money to jump out of perfectly good airplanes ...
While I doubt the cans will be jumping from the heights you once did I share your doubts about their accuracy.
"Unlike the Nexus 4 there are no buttons on the front of the device"
There are no buttons on the front of the Nexus 4. Or at least there are no buttons on the front of my Nexus 4.
Re: Roast Lamb
The lamb from my local kebab shop does that already
Impressive bofinry but where's my flying car, damnit?
If FB's Android app hasn't improved since I last used it, a goatse launcher would be most apt.
Fiestas and marketing wonks
If you're looking for a review of the new Fiesta on [well known car review magazine site], it's listed under the "Supermini" category, which is close.
Bastard marketing wonks.
"Updating dashboard software now, please pull over during the update."
And people complain about the original PS3 being big. Sheesh!
All hail ...

The value of investments can go down as well as up.
Do these things not apply to big banks?
They couldn't organise a nuke in a dictatorship.
They might as well divide the warhead between 20 000 schoolboy catapults.
I've invested in magic beans - which are entirely resistant to DDoS. Yeah take that Bitcoin!
"Can you walk into a Tescos, Asda, Lidl or Aldis and pick-up some Milk and a Head of Lettuce with a Gold bar or a Picasso?"
No but you can be confident the gold bar and Picasso will be worth something in 5 years time.
One simply sells them to a fool. Finding that fool ought to be depressingly easy.
"Jimmy hat icon please." Re: Pfft
Would that be in the Scottish sense or the Tribe Called Quest sense?
Re: I Be Afraid.
If it's anything like the Faceshite app on my old HTC phone, you'll be jailbreaking it to uninstall.
Unless this was an April Fools story, I've really no idea any more.
"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.
Is this like that graph you see where lottery spending rockets the closer you get to the redundancy date?
It'd be better "investing" in the 3:05 at Newmarket than Bitcoin.
Bang up to date, then. Next year I'm backing James Hargreaves for the Spinning Jenny
Pet? Cattel? Contraptions, more like.
Ours are mostly held together with string and gaffer tape. "Contraptions" is the word I'd use.
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.
I'll miss FB when it's gone. I'm not a subscriber but I always keep up with lamebook.com
I'll have a go. It's not rocket science!
Oh, hang on ...
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: Like Marvin
Assuming Facebook hasn't gone titsup by then, you could poke Mr 40mph to let him know how you feel about his delaying your journey.
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?
Oh Jimface, you are a tool.
Socialist haircuts seem to be heavily biased towards the bouffant spectrum, for socialist dudes at least.
I remember seeing a job ad for a sysadmin with the British Anarctic Survey in the late 90s. I bitterly regretted lacking the UNIX skills.
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".
Asteroid mining promises to be such a wonderful bubble
I wonder if I can insist that there's no asteroid miining in my pension.
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.
