It's so they don't get run over.
Pedestrians in the US have walked through, been hit by cars, then sued the restaurant for not warning them.
"no body needs BT when you have 3g on tmobile at 8mbs for £5 for 30 days"
Try gaming with that latency and we'll see how far you get. :)
"The national telco has not said which exchange areas will get the FTTP service"
I'll save you some time, it's London.
I set up a new account, bought a copy of the Divine Comedy. Came back a few weeks later and there was one item in my 'Suggested Items' list... a mop.
How they came to that conclusion I have no idea.
Barack Obama (Formerly Hussein)?
It fits too perfectly to be a coincidence, please don't let the Tea Party know.
I really want to believe that there is an emergency guitar on the ISS. Preferably in a glass case on the wall.
You really think Apple would have caught something like this?
Just look at the hundreds of 'mirror' apps in the Apple App store, they just turn the screen black so you can see yourself in the reflection. Apple make no attempt to stop those sort of scams.
Pretty sure that's just more dust. They don't call it the red planet because it's a commie.
Writing a fake program that asks stupid people to enter their login details != hacking.
I've had warnings from avast about malware embedded in advertising links on reputable sites many times. It's not only 'bad' places that can become infected.
Wasn't there a 'power' granted to local councils that allowed them to spy on people who they suspected of terrorist activity, only for them to immediately use it to monitor anyone suspected of anything (not cleaning up after their dog, applying to a school while not living in the catchment area, etc...)
There's very little we can do about it though, the government long ago stopped caring what the public want or need.
They're only growing crops there, not farming animals. So no meat being produced, vegetarian diet is not optional.
If they can figure out a way to grow bacon (please no hambush jokes) I'll happily signup in 15 years.
I particularly liked the survey popup "Have you got a minute" that has no close button so you have to refresh the page.
"Rounded"? "Corner"? Those are dangerous words you're using there!
Mine once gave me me the password 101010 which was pretty hoopy.
Well, my HSBC device still requires me to input a 4-6 character PIN (different from my normal PIN) before the password is generated. Someone stealing it from me couldn't use it.
"Fake donation pages are notable by their absence"
If you don't count the IRL one Romney held in Ohio, where he went out and bought loads of stuff then gave it to people to 'donate' to the cause on camera.
*eye twitch* HAVE, would HAVE. Not 'would of'.
Sorry, but this is probably the most irritating grammatical mistake to me.
The 'misery' was entirely self inflicted. It was only his constant appeals that kept it going on this long.
I don't care where he goes as long as he gets properly prosecuted for breaking the law.
"requiring players to complete a word search over the phone"
How does that work then? Do they read out the letters over the phone?
On a premium rate call they must have been raking it in.
"It must have been the non-Christians."
Of course, no Christian has ever been involved in any act of violence.
Because if you don't you vill be shot.
They choose to give all the money to the cities that already have the fastest internet available, putting them another notch ahead of the rest of the country. What about us schlubs who are still stuck on 20CN, where's our subsidy?
"C.M.O.T. Dibbler would try that."
It depends on whether you can get it to stay onna stick.
Emphasis on 'some' of the sheep. There are a few good ones but most want you dead.
Um, is it normal to produce an advert before you have a working product?
My phone is labeled as 16GB, it actually has 13.2 GB 'available', and the OS takes up another GB of that so I actually only get around 12. As far as I'm concerned that's false advertising.
"probably not a very compassionate thing to say"
What's compassion got to do with anything? He admitted to committing the crime a long time ago and has been kicking and screaming ever since in an attempt to evade punishment. As far as I'm concerned he's waived any right to compassion.
Is anyone else disgusted that the 'rights' to produce certain technologies are being bought and sold by soulless corporations purely to be used alternately as legal defense and ammunition?
"Besides, all patents, copyright et al vanishes once you move production to China ... designs to the Xerox."
Don't you mean to the Zerocks(TM)?
I'm in the UK and I've seen multiple sales people marched out by security as they have a habit of trying to take customer data with them to give to their new employers. We even had a great one where an outgoing guy wanted to take 'personal' documents from his desk drawer but as there were lots of sensitive documents in there too he wasn't allowed to go through it. Ended up with them carrying his entire desk (drawers attached) down three flights of stairs to reception so he could go through with a lawyer present and remove only his property.
I had this on the Master System, the dancing stay-puft wasn't the boss fight at all, it was the second stage of four. You needed to get past him, go through a platforming-style level of climbing the buildings stairs to the roof, then fight Gozer. Or did this version omit the last 2 stages?
All of the images and page elements are held in a web accessible directory http://www.hpl-llc.com/files/.
Judging by the amount of useless markup someone with no web knowledge made this in something like Frontpage.
I wouldn't blame the testers, they probably reported the vulnerabilities that they found and were ignored by the managers who saw the cost to close the holes.
I'm pretty sure you can still run NoScript with the JRE plugin disabled.
Indeed, I distinctly remember disabling JRE in Firefox a few months back when it caused some issues. Just checked and it's been re-enabled, wonder when that happened.
Reusing the same enemies? You know the Daleks have only had 1 episode out of the last 2 series? (OK, they've had short cameos in 2 other episodes but that's still far less screen time than other enemies).
Can't argue with you about the ponies though, I can't wait.
First they came for the supermarkets, and I didn't speak out because I was not a supermarket.
Then they came for the Home Brewers, and there was no-one left to speak for me.
Minimum alcohol pricing reduces drinking, in the same way that ever increasing fuel duty keeps cars off the roads and thereby reduces congestion.
Just another tax with a ridiculous rationalisation, it won't be mourned.
Breaking and decorating.
Any relation to the ads for write-only memory? Write once, impossible to read. Perfect security.
But only the right sort of imaginary friends. Imaginary friends that come from a different magical book are offensive and must be banned.
I'd like to think that one of the first manned missions would recover the rovers for them to be brought back as heroes.
The argument is that the ever increasing number of cats bred in captivity is unsustainable as it's adversely affecting wild animals.
I think it's mainly because the people writing the requirements are non-technical people who have no idea what they're asking for. They put every conceivable qualification that they can think of down expecting god himself to apply (as he's the only one who could possibly meet the requirements) but after months of silence or unsuitable people they just settle for someone who can just do the job.
"having a 3-letter Twitter [handle]"
Sorry, what? What difference does it make what his username is? That's not privileged information, does he mean the password?
"close the loopholes by strengthening management"
Doesn't matter where you are in the world, corporate problems can always be solved by hiring more managers.
Funniest bit was the random guy at NASA who yelled 'holy shit' at touchdown before suddenly realising he was on camera and they hastily muted the feed.
