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.

I've seen a Karrachi Fried Chicken and a Krazy Fried Chicken
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".
You know the "g" stands for "graphics"? Or do you pronounce that as "jraphics"?
It's the phone Nokia Banana fans have been waiting for all these years. AT LAST!
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.
Linguine/jub/elephants per second for the inevitable complaints* when an article fails to use the correct Reg units.
* admittedly mostly from me
Down with this sort of thing
In an exaggerated Cockney/Aussie accent this sounds like "paperweight". If sales are crap you can have that one for nothing, Reg.
Hate's a strong word but pandas should meet us halfway. Eat a more varied diet*, have sex once in a while**.
* a reminder: I'm talking about pandas, not my esteemed fellow commentards
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!
Re: @Crisp: SHOCKED!
NSFW is not a moral (real or otherwise) judgement - it just depends on how puritanical/bored the BOFHs in charge of the smut filters are.
"I think that it's a bit late to try and cover up the fact that people have nipples."
If only the church would realise this.
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.
Roaming charges were the reason I quit O2.
