The smartphone with a decent battery life on a is the star of the show for me. That it's waterproof is impressive but secondary.

Android sales poor? Why not Windows?
Just to prove they're not all joyless moneygrabbing sociopathic lizards.

Re: Researchers, what would you do without them?
the rare desert penguin
Humboldt penguins are quite common in the Atacama desert
Cheap pet for a supervillain or the ULTIMATE AQUATIC PLATFORM FOR A FRICKIN LASER?
Re: "So they hooked it and dragged it to the surface where it died. "
From the article: "The squid was then hooked and taken to the surface for measurement."
Re: Which qualifications are worthwhile?
Despite a long, long time spent working in the industry, I'm studying an IT degree with the OU at the moment and can recommend it.
One thing to bear in mind is cost. I'm lucky that I started just before the univeristy fees went up, so can finish my degree at the old rates. In common with traditional universities, the OU has more-or-less tripled its fees - meaning a full degree will now cost you £15k. Help is available, as are student loans so it's worth speaking to them.
The degree will take several years - though the fact that you're currently studying towards one could be a big boost to your jobhunting.
True up to a point. That Dysons are made abroad does not stop Silicon Roundabout being bullshit.
Re: Is it wrong...
There are pictures if you follow the link to the (magnificent) NT News site.
Re: Geeks have macs too
PCs had only just launched. Linux was years away.
These may have beeen factors in the virus author's choosing a Mac.
Re: Open wounds!?
Another reason not to do cocaine. This stuff's not exactly fair trade.
Re: "The evidence was stunning,"
I agree with the boffins. Cheese news is the best news.
Re: I almost died in Australia
"I almost die in Australia every day. From boredom, usually."
Does your iPhone keep sending you to funky new towns that don't exist?
Twitted is the correct verb if you ask me. And, yes, I am a Twitter user.
Not just that it keeps coming back but the Tories actually attacked the near-identical scheme that New Labour wanted to introduce. I don't trust these bastards one bit, nor the previous bastards, nor the next bastards.
Re: Next step: sue God?
If they were to find somewhere to serve the lawsuit I'd be impressed.
Russ Abbott rumoured to be "not in the least bit interested".
Mine's the one with the 7" Atmosphere single in the pocket.
Re: Bad dinoboffins!
Good point. That also explains the lack of cars-with-no-floors-in-so-Fred-or-Barney-can-scoot-them-along-with-their-feet in the picture.
Re: Bad dinoboffins!
The artist that did the impression is making a huge claim for non-purpleness.
It's not purple, has no collar. It's nothing like Dino.
Re: Rather cynical
I can't speak for the OP but I'd rather pay my money with confindence of receiving the phone shortly afterwards. Until then the money can stay in my account.
If there were a way to do this so Murdoch lost money, I'd do it.
Re: So are they going to Open Source the code?
It's a Usenet scraper. If you've 15 mins spare you could knock one up yourself.

Re: This KFC thing in Japan is real.
Agreed. KFC is bad, airline food is bad.
Who else thought it was a different sort of anti-piracy that Hurricane Sandy had wrecked?
Also paving front/back gardens. Britain's not as absorbent as it once was.
Re: I find it deeply disturbing
How about we agree to not blow anything up m'kay?
There's one rule: don't be the one that gets talked about the next day. Not getting completely shitted is the usual way of achieving this.
I'm running out of upvotes. And coffee.
So ... the VCD's a complete turkey except in Turkey?
Re: Perhaps it was lost in translation
La petite motorboat?
I'm happy to say I've never seen it.
Re: And I, for one.....
It's bloody terrifying it is.
Thankfully less bloody terrifying than trucks driven by Australians. At least the robots will be sober.
YOU MEAN THE MEERKAT'S LYING TO US? THE BASTARD!
I'm no physicist, but ...
How is wooldrag a factor in a vacuum? Surely as frictionless an environment as there can be
Re: "THESE data ARE"
Yeah. Data ARE. Also use "THEE" and "THOU" more often.
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!
"Is that pronounced Kif or Sif? :)"
I'm now open to the possibility that the thing I've sprayed coffee all over is pronounced "seyboard".
It's the phone Nokia Banana fans have been waiting for all these years. AT LAST!
