The Tolkien family sit down and start singing about gold.
"as it aggravates commuters" is an issue in China? They must have better rail services than the UK, then.
Oh wait. Everyone in the world has better rail services than the UK.
So it was 'kin rubbish, then?
So which is the prototype football pitch? FA rules allow pitches between between 100 yards (90m/~10 double-decker buses) and 130 yards (120m/~13 double-decker buses) long and between 50 yards (45m/~5 double-decker buses) and 100 yards (90m/~10 double-decker buses) wide.
And which is the protoype double-decker bus? (I'm guessing the Routemaster but open to suggestions from, say, Altlantean fans).
Re: Marketing games
Haven't Apple patented this?
So in summary: sockets on trains good, lack of sockets in offices bad.
Cool story, bro.
On a related note I once wrote a system called NIPS. The N is a massive clue to the client so I can't expand on this.
Re: I wonder how much
Or Sinofsky's just following the rule of "slagging off your former employer can upset those you want to be the next employer".
I'll continue in the same vein by pointing out its corners are not rounded.
"in highest fulfilment of feet"
I love you, science!
Re: Nothing better to worry about??
They have a point. As soon as I saw that advert I got in my Fiesta and drove it through a plate glass window.
Hate's a strong word but pandas should meet us halfway. Eat a more varied diet*, have sex once in a while**.

Re: Excuse me...
So it's a bit like the old picture-of-a-topless-bird-on-the-thing-with-the-bags-of-nuts-on they had in pubs? Except with no pictures of topless birds, no nuts and you're not in a pub?
I really don't understand the modern world.
"When GiffGaff falls over, is it even news any more?"
This sounds almost Confucian. Like the sound of one hand clapping ... presumably clapping slowly in the case of GiffGaff's users.
I wonder if the move to Disney means they'll get round to making those prequels that were touted after Return of the Jedi, which we all know is the THIRD STAR WARS FILM AND THE LAST ONE EVER MADE!
Re: Misuse of misuse act!
"strange career move to join the army"
I'm guessing he was conscripted, y'know like most of the army in WWII
The man's an arse. However, my granddad's generation went through shit I can't even imagine to protect his freedom to be an arse.
That he's been arrested for this is a bigger affront to those who died in service than burning a poppy.
The Great Alien Bake-off. Now you're talking!
Wasn't the "backdoor" in some kind of voting machine that it stored votes in a .mdb file? Do they not still do that?
13GB o'shite then. You just don't change, do you Microsoft?
If I had a wad of Future MySpace shares I'd be cashing in as fast as I could manage as well.
Give it about 6 months and the idea of a Facebook phone will sound as laughable as a MySpace phone.
A cynic might think that this "simplifying" of labels is an open door for Debenhams to change their coffee to instant.
I couldn't possibly comment.
Re: Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop
That earworm infection was fast! Superluminal even.
*mobile - damnable sausage fingers!
The idea of loyalty to a nobile phone (of any brand) is laughable to me.
Re: clearly the reg SPB is a secret government funded black helicopter outfit
"It does sound suspiciously like sabotage on the part of el reg."
3rd rate American boffinry more like. I bet they didn't have a single pipe between the entire team.
Those will be proper 568ml pints.
Fluid ounces are one of those measurements I never have and never will understand (and I'm no whippersnapper).
Re: Not all directgov.uk
... for which I'm very grateful. My road tax is due and this was the one service I'd always point to as a govt website that actually worked.
Let us hope it continues to be not stuffed up for the foreseeable.
But but but
[insert usual protest at the lack of jubs, elephants per second and Waleses]
Jimface taking credit for everyone else's work? Crikey whatever next?
While 60-odd years without war in Western Europe I can't help thinking it's been a "slow peace year".
Re: Well if it's a .co.uk
Read the article. It's mirrored on a .com.
Patience young envmod. As the next MySpace it's only a matter of time.
Helldesk being bawdy little monkeys?
I love Ballmer. This industry will be so much less funny when he's gone.
Hopefully it'll cut down on laptops left in pubs, USB sticks dropped in taxis &c.
It's got "cock-up" written all over it, mind.
