Re: I'd just be happy if...
but i thought one of the big things about the PS4 is that the OS/game/app updates are all done in the background now?
so at the most, you've only got a small wait for them to install when you switch it on.
that said - doesn't that already happen with the ps3? or is that because i'm on PS Plus?
Re: I will get one because....
because next year you'll get to play WatchDogs and StarWars Battlefront and the new FF and the new MGS, etc etc
Shall we play a game?
How about a nice game of chess?
watch the non-3D version on iPlayer instead then
has anyone seen...
Studbucket33 and Steve Ballmer in the same room together?
Maybe we've found the real reason why he announced his step down in the summer, he's taking a new career direction.
Re: PS3 outsold Xbox One
possibly - but at least half of that is because the PS4 isn't available here until Friday.
or undertaking. even long haired hippies with no need of hairdressers need someone to put them in the ground when they're ready to start pushing up the daisies.
my gf uses the ones sold at ecigarettedirect.co.uk
before, she'd tried again and again to stop smoking by all sorts of methods but none of them stuck.
but she got a starter kit of these Halo ones and hasn't had a proper cigarette since. that was at least 18 months ago.
she says it's because she can still feel herself breathing something in, and she can see the vapour being exhaled. those are the things she missed when using patches.
i figure, even if these things aren't 100% healthy, they're still a lot better than inhaling burning tar, right? So it's a step in the right direction at least.
and a lot cheaper.
Re: It is not an unknown incarnation
My reading of the article was that it was analysing how each incarnation of the Doctor portrayed a variation in moods/motives/attitudes/etc.
And by that readeing, then Hurt's Doctor is unknown, because we've not seen enough of him to know whether he tends to anguish over the tough moral decisions, or relish the process of wiping out the Daleks and the Timelords for the greater good.
at least, that's what Gates WANTS us to believe....
But i thought all the analysts and journalists earlier in the year were adamant that a mid-range iPhone was the only hope to Apple's continued future?? I'm shocked, shocked that the industry "experts" opinion hasn't turned out to be in line with what the customers really want.
before i read this, need to go get meself a cuppa....
technically, the OED defines patriotism as
"support for one’s country"
so really, patriotic directors will be sticking with .co.uk domains, surely.
but i don't need to tell you lot that, you're journalists after all
i've been anxiously awaiting this article since you first announced the Who-fest :)
you're suggesting that before the iPhone, someone had built and used a machine to test that the gyroscope inside an iPhone worked? that's rather a chicken/egg situation isn't it?
Re: How much?
planning to bring back production to the US?
i suspect that is exactly the reason behind this
they made a big thing of how the new Mac Pro is entirely built in the US. i wouldn't be at all surprised if they're looking to move as much production back to the US as possible. it's a good PR move. no one will question the fact that it doesn't really lead to the creation of many new jobs
Re: I think Target knows what it is doing
How does Target choosing to use it as a come on mean it is "no longer a premium gadget"?
Because Jasper is incapable of writing an article without putting an anti-apple spin in there somewhere. It's like muscle-reflex, i suspect he's not even aware he's doing it anymore...
Re: Good one…
Jasper's not one to let facts get in the way of a good piece of anti-Appletism
Re: Talks eh ...?
Mark Hamil is more famous, these days, for being the voice of the Joker than he is for being Luke Skywalker.
Plus, his deal with the early films was to get one copy of every Star Wars merchandise that was made. He keeps them all in storage. Just imagine, his retirement plan is going to be to sell off all those mint, unopened packets of original toys, you know, the ones that sell for thousands and thousands.
Re: I have one request
and _that's_ your problem with the prequels???
Re: CD support is an issue? Really??
I want to listen to my music from my pc upstairs, WHILST playing FIFA....
you stream it to your iPhone/iPad/etc surely
at just under 100 as Apple prepared to open its doors at 9am.
well that's the problem right there, they opened at 8am
you're missing an hour's worth of people
Re: Oh my
+1 for George Takei request!
Re: Conflicted here
the article suggests that this is the OG Nokia:
The Finnish firm ... in its new guise as a patent-peddler now that its devices business has been sold off to Microsoft
what's the point in such a claim? is anyone going to set these up as individual drive and see the claim and think "well i shalln't bother with a raid or backup redundancy setup then, at least, not for the next 59 months..."
better off buying cheaper disks that are likely to fail, because then at least your data redundancy process is justified and not a complete waste of time and effort and money :)
it's like an episode of Brainiac!!
well played El Reg
really enjoying it.
but yes, for something that feels a lot like a copy/paste from the previous game, there's a lot of bugs and graphics glitches that i wouldn't have expected. Rocksteady obviously paid a lot more attention to detail when they were in charge.
but all that said, it's great fun and hasn't disapointed yet.
but i quite agree, they're allowed this one to be very much the same as the last one. i'd like to think that if there's a next one, i'll wait for the reviews to ensure it's an improvement.... but i won't. it's a Batman game where you get to roam around Gotham punching evil in it's turkey neck (as Kevin Smith would say) so i'll be buying it regardless.
Re: Very much more fo the same
amazon currently has it for £35
if you'd pre-ordered it, the price was actually only £30 quid at the time they sent them out (dropped from £38 when i placed my pre-order and thanks to amazon's policy, i only paid £30)
Re: Innovative ?
you gotta admit, he was using the courts in that way long before the likes of Samsung, Apple, Motorolla, et al
so yeah, i'd say he innovated and brought that particular corporate strategy into the mainstream
These are small… but the ones out there are far away. Small… far away…
yes the screen is very small... but it's also right in front of your eye. so probably appears not so small when in use
all the best
Right or wrong, you'll still be missed. Articles have always been interesting and worth reading, even the infamous iPhone one. That O2 moment is an utter classic though! Good show! All the best with your next endeavour!
Another favourite on a friday afternoon was the Smarties Race.
Occured most often in the weeks around the Grand National.
As the youth in the office i was dispatched to the nearest sweet shop to purchase two tubes of Smarties.
Then we'd all put in our quid and pick a colour.
Once all the bets were in and more importantly, everyone had put their quid down on the desk, then the first tube would be opened and the first Smartie would be taken out, and it's colour tallied down on a notepad.
After two tubes, the colour that had occured the most won the pot of quids, and possibly the big pile of Smarties too.
Looking back, we used to get REALLY bored in that office and found anything a worthy distraction...
Used to work in an office with polished wooden-effect flooring, and all the chairs have wheels.
When the traders would get bored on a friday afternoon they'd wander round, grab one of the guys by the back of his chair, and whizz him down the length of the office, in between everyone's desks.
I never got 'curl'ed, my job was to man the brush, furiously scrubbing ahead of my speeding coleague, trying to steer them in a straight line and not piling in to the back of someone elses chair.
my current place of employment has carpets. can't get up any kind of speed or distanceon carpet :(
also, it's a 9.7 inch screen. you don't REALLY need to see a comedy sketch show about geeks in 1080p. downsample the videos (should take only a few seconds in Handbrake on a new MacPro) to divx size and then he'd easily be able to fit them all on the big iPad Air
or, watch a decent show like the IT Crowd. it's funnier, and has a lot less shows to worry about :)
really? if he's that bothered about being able to watch the Big Bang Theory why doesn't he just buy one iPad for every series?
If you had to /learn/ to love it...
...then it's instantly a fail.
Where's the Tick when you need him?!?
And yet I thought the problem they had in the 90s was allowing others to create cheaper clones that ran MacOS.
Re: Why can't they write some new programmes?
i'm just hoping they hurry up and remake Roland Rat!!
Re: Why can't they write some new programmes?
was there actually anything Italian in it ?
well, the first 15 minutes are in Venice aren't they?
if you watch the whole film, it's because their idea to steal the whole security truck by exploding the road from under it, just like they stole the whole safe by exploding the floors beneath it "in the Italian job" which they did at the start of the film.
all that aside, it is undoubtably an abomination and besmirch upon the memory of the original film and should never have been allowed.
Re: Don't forget Matt Berry
Space: what is it? The simple answer is, we don't know. Or at least we didn't know until now. Hello, I'm Douglas Reynholm, and I'm not a scientist, but I do have a better understanding of what space is than any scientist living today.
Re: How many?
i thought he was the server admin wasn't he?
Good morning, that's a nice tnetennba.
Awesome! this has made my day!
So excited, i might pass out - can someone call the emergency servies*?
*you know the number, it's so easy to remember: 0118 999 88199 9119 725
Re: Wrong on so many levels...
6. It has to be turned on each time you want to use it.
i've been using an iPod nano on a watch strap for the last 18 months or so and it's surprising how much of a problem it isn't having to turn it on to check the time on a watch.
just goes to show, i guess, how rarely i find myself needing to know the time (sitting in front of a computer for the majority of every day, it's far easier just to look in the bottom/top corner of the screen depending on if i'm at work/home
but the rest of points i totally agree with
awesome marketing idea
not Android, i mean KitKat - i'm going to go get one now!
well a single donation is only going to be news for a very short time, and it isn't going to encourage others to donate
this way, as you say, it encourages more of us to put our hands in our pockets too in order to assure the museum gets £2mil to spend instead of just one.
i loved this game when i was a kid. possibly the first game i paid for with my own money?
i spent ages playing it on the mac - no idea what i was doing and i don't think i really got very far. but days and days of going round and round in seeming circles suddenly rewarded when i discovered something i'd previously missed that opened a new area and then i'd repeat the process of wondering what i should be doing next.
i liked the iOS re-release too - i think i instantly seemed to get further in that after a few hours than i ever did as a kid. i feel i've accomplished something in growing up :)
Man Bites Dog
Isn't that the equally genius and disturbing Belgian film?
Must watch that again some time.
