"All you can eat"
Did the owner used to be in marketing for a broadband company?
Just like the (then) newfangled newspapers all chipped in to keep the ailing town crier sector afloat.
I would rather give up broadband than pay to keep the Heil going. I imagine Heil readers feel similarly about propping up the Graun.
And to think that some people say coppers are thick.
Re: "obsessed with Apple's marketing events and Apple's branding".
Oh come on. This is a genuine story - and quite a funny one at that
... also "what was the content of that toilet?"
You are a cruel person, Naughtyhorse. Full marks!
Re: keyboard please ...
Especially as other, lesser news sources have been less forthcoming on the subject of the massive blue arse.

Re: IT Angle: MonkeyVision
If it's touchscren I'd want a stylus.
Re: Stealing von Braun
... and where's his pipe?
Was it just me that read that as "Northwind"?
My comment is that between the lines of not commenting, Fuj are a little grumpy today.
Need a hug, Fuj?
"... while completely respecting their privacy" - no comment on whether his face was straight while delivering this particular gem?
Re: Yawn. First World Problems...
You mean my local refuge for transgender midgets is just a scam? Just another mobile phone mast?
I don't know who to trust any more.
Re: Twitter claimed today that it has no rivals on the world stage
If it were different enough that other site might be viable everywhere except the UK. But there's no way your average (vaguely lefty) UK Twit would be seen dead doing anything on there other than trolling.
Re: If nobody is copying you
Twitter's influential (it's essential for lots of politicians and media types) but this has never translated into income.
The latest stab at income seems to be closing its APIs - which I really don't understand. Ah well we'll see.
Re: Burn the heretics!!
Mr Coward, my only regret is having just the one upvote (and this tiny picture of a pint) to give.
+1 for the G570
I bought a slightly beefier G570 for slightly over £400 last month. While noticably flimsier than the Thinkpad it replaced, it's a great laptop. I've yet to give it a thorough workout but it'll be running an IDE for a course in a month or so and I've every confidence in it.
This article is pish
Some developers are shit, so slag off the platform. Maybe Pyhthon or Rails devs are all perfect. Maybe you're not suited to being a sysadmin. Maybe you'd be happier customising Wordpress themes for a living.
More bargain fish pedicures! Wahoo!
This is why I drink.
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?
