Re: Just 400 light years away
Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is.
Re: Actually, Google has it coming too..
It's this sort of thing that will kill the internet. And then we'll all have to get proper jobs.
Where's the "down with this sort of thing" icon?
Re: The Arctic? Look a bit further south...
That'll be Harbin that's hundreds of miles from the sea, then?
I agree that were the Gulfstream to switch off it would have a huge impact on our climate but it wouldn't stop the UK being an island.
Continental climate != island climate.
As the article says, tablets have stolen the netbook's thunder. That said they're still a viable PC. A friend still uses his first generation Acer Aspire One.
If my needs hadn't changed (I now need a full fat Windows laptop) I'd still be using mine. I still love the dinky wee thing with its lack of a Windows key (I guess modern netbooks do have these, more's the pity).
Re: Vegetarian bacon!
Bacon fries are better but come in a disappointingly tiny bag. Given the choice I'll always go for Frazzles.
Tellies with an OS - i.e. tellies you can root - will be commonplace one day. Then we'll have telly without meerkats and bloody opera singers telling you where to buy your car insurance.
Heck I want that more than I want a flying car!
Re: Well seeing as how printer ink costs more than champagne...
Surely that would be a jam jam in the output tray.
Mine's the one with the dozen printed scotch eggs in the pocket.
Re: Vegetarian bacon!
Frazzles are made of corn. Always have been.
Also the snail's on its back - ready to be noshed by the first passing thrush or Frenchman.
A solution in search of a problem
While a lot of folks are happy to use their phones' MP3 player and camera instead of a dedicated device a projector is niche, niche, niche. I can see this phone flopping like its predecessor.
Hey I use <insert your language of choice here> as well!
If I produced bugs at a rate of 1 per 1000 lines of code that'd be a vast improvement.
The confusion between inches and centimetres is oft-mentioned but I still reckon it's "citation needed". As you say - they don't know.
That's ok because the Tories promised us an end to New Labour's Big Brother ways. So we can trust them to put a stop to all this, right?
Re: I tried S3...
I guess they've managed expectations well with the name Glacier. Think how angry you'd have been had it been called "TurboNutterFastBackup"
There must be some fools left who weren't parted from their money at the IPO.
Re: what phone?
If you were to choose 3310 there'd be a good chance it'd still work after you'd flung it.
He's shite anyway.
Re: Printing money
These gullible twonks would probably accept these magic beans I've found in my desk.
This suggests that $100bn for the next MySpace was an overvaluation. Gosh!
Re: Low Quality
"But my biggest fear is TV studios over-run with Media Studies students on internships."
Aren't they all already busy running BBC Three?
That's it. I'm smashing the telly with a hammer as soon as I get in tonight.
How much more low quality TV do we actually need?
"Groupon blamed Europe's weak economy and currency fluctuations for its less-than-impressive results"
So not that their business model is offering people money off stuff they didn't want in the first place, then. Well they would say that.
Are DEY Scouse?
DEY do doh don't DEY doh.
I momentarily took exception to this - before realising it's true.
Our laws are made - end enforced - by morons. How did this happen.
Re: The only innovative use of NFC I've heard of so far.
Nice idea but it's hardly remote.
Exactly the sort of thing I go to the pub to avoid.
It'll be texts from dog next. http://textfromdog.tumblr.com/
Please Samsung, get Dom Joly to advertise this in the UK.
Sounds nice but it's no bacon butty - too much frippery.
Bacon, butter, bread, sauce. Resolve to never drink again.
Re: That isn't proper bacon
I'd stick with good bacon every time. Danish bacon's just nasty - full of water.
For me it's good British bacon if flush, porridge if not.
I share your doubts that less famous folks would get so quick a response from plod but that doesn't mean they're wrong to arrest this clown. He's made a death threat and that's against the law.
Hopefully this will scare the shite out of the wee scrote, Tom Daley will decline to press charges and that'll be an end to the matter but arrest is the correct response - IMO of course.
What a fantastic moment for British justice and common sense. Good job we haven't looked like fools or anything.
Well done, all!
Re: Sledgehammer meets nut
The sad thing is the case categorically doesn't warrant a custodial sentence but McKinnon will receive a one if extradited.
It's time this cruel farce ended.
"If it 'ain't broke, why break it?"
Exactly. CentOS is the absolute dogs danglies and all for the excellent price of free!
We run CentOS for dev, staging and production servers and it's rock solid. I'm unashamedly a CentOS fanboi.
