So simple, really!
A cold one? This one's on me.
Is there a problem here? Do you fear they're going to forget the fu once they move into TRW? Or that the fu is less applicable there?

Re: disguised as a system update...
@PaulR79 "a large amount of people" might be correct if you were serving up minced human flesh. However, since the "people" you are referring to are living, and are discrete and distinguishable and, therefore, countable, in most variants of English, correct usage would be, instead, "a large number of people".
Aside: Hitchhiking does offer a periodic change of scene. And you can look up without craning. And there's plenty of leg-room while checking out the scenery. But consider a bicycle as a principle mode; it has many advantages...
Anyway... the coin of apology is everywhere and inexorably being diluted--first by the mob-forced blood-vengeance demand for resort to it (for the slightest misstep, be it verbal, sartorial, etc.--no real limits) and, secondly, by the ease with which an apology can be shit out^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hissued from the corporate body, when circumstances really demand it, and everything being made 'nice' thereby. Apology is approaching meaninglessness asymptotically.
Über deserves a smoking hole, though, and that can't arrive too soon.
I wonder if the harpoon could be used to launch Phil off of the comet's surface--after doing as many of the experiments as possible within the first battery charge period, and with consideration for the need of direct contact with the surface for those. If the harpoon can be fired, and Phil relaunched with some chance of having another go at a 3-point landing, somewhere else and sometime later... Could turn into an interesting, challenging long-distance hobby.
Where were we?
Oh, yes: "a half million" != "a half billion".

>the right to express their approval, disapproval or complete disinterest
If your disinterest is genuinely complete, you'd never exercise that right; apart from there being no point in doing so, doing so would make a liar out of you.

that it makes you bald, too? There's an apparent correlation there, anyway. More research!

>Anywho, the time she spent getting the loyalty app for said rank coffee shop to open ...
It would have been much worse if paying with cash. One upside to pay-by-bonk is that the means to pay is almost certainly already in-hand (literally), so there's much less need for the hard-of-thinking to go faffing about in pockets and purses for the necessaries--after the total has been announced over the store's PA system.

That was as clear as mud--possibly a function of your being so parsimonious with punctuation.

I don't mind el Reg engaging in some animated hijinx with Jesus (or rejecting the original version of this post), but does that animation have to be so g*-awfully irritating? Try subtle, for C*'s sake!

Not sure he'll be the last, but reasonably sure he'll be the last for a while, anyway. Unless, they make it into an annual barbecue.

"You thought Apple products never get viruses? You'd be right,
There are no Mac viruses. Period.
What there are, are trojans which can get installed by careless or reckless users."

(Where's the tongue-in-cheek icon, dammit?)
5 thumbs down, eh? Tsk, tsk! Apparently it's necessary to include the joke icon every time.
What's the point of this yarn?
>What about the small of the back?
Agree. I can't understand why 'the office' hasn't been claimed as yet for use in toting around slab-like things of various sizes.
Someone apparently has slipped more than a bit of random into the water table in Redmond.
This will end in tears, I think, but Microsoft will long be able to afford--unfortunately--to pay people to be up'n'smiley about whatever-the-fuck they're doing with Windows any given day of the week.
Re: Norwich has an apple store?
Oh, Captain, don't be such a natsi! I'm sure yore not perfect. Everyone has there good daze and there bad daze.
and the kids were told, in response to a specific question on the subject, that the phones couldn't be bent... So
the kids were merely gaming the assertion of the sales clerk in response to that question.
the kids were actively misinterpreting the interdiction of bending the phones issued by the sales clerk wise to the threat posed by the kids.

Re: Bottom Dock/Panel
"Plank"!? WTF? Looks supiciously famil... Oh! Don't mention OS X. Or the war.
>In OS X you can have the dock left or right mounted too
In OS X, you can have the dock left-, right-, or even top-mounted, too.
>most people (males at least) carry their phone in their pockets. Seems like a rather serious design fault to me.
Recall the males? I've seen a fair few females whose back pockets have the tell-tall bulge of a phone, though.
What I don't get, at all, is why you'd put a complex object/tool for which you've just paid real money into a pocket of your pants, or into the bottom of your [m|p]urse, to grind along with whatever else ends up in there. Akin to putting a camera, loose, into a purse, backpack, or pannier. Makes no sense; retrieving a phone from a pocket is fiddly (front dress pants pockets aside) to boot. There's a huge market for dedicated cases. And shirts still come with pockets, du-uhn't they?
>Go back to displaying 15 blue links and ads and nothing else. Otherwise, they are unfairly displaying their products in a nicer way than those of competitors, which are only displayed as typical search results.
Not to argue against Something Being Done, but how do you police such a solution (and who does it) without requiring that Google reveal trade secrets?
>It works for Apple because there's a rabid fan base out there that wants the earliest access to the sexy products.
It works for Apple because there's a very large pack of journalists out there, and each one of them needs to collect a paycheck in order to eat.

Re: Get a proofreader.
"We sell eyeballs"?
Something about the wavelengths of the language gives me pause; Mr. AO is the usual suspect, I agree, but let's not forget this upstart ADabbs person--noob-kids-on-the-block do try harder...

>good to have quick release to then dump it and move on.
And, to prevent a net accumulation of those same booster packs on the backsides of the current enemy, drone tech built in to giddy-up the nearly-depleted-of-fuel boosters back to lines, where they can be lathered, rinsed, and repeated.
I generally agree with comments about dronifying gun barrels: that's much more efficient, militarily, as guns don't have stomachs. However, DARPA is doing the sensible thing in funding research of this kind: you never know what kind of consumer shiny might come out of it, ultimately--and wars are fought to ensure that civilians have something to live for.
00.15% is probably enough
for Apple to pay for the bonking gear that they'll foist onto retailers globally after making 'an offer they can't refuse' i.e. 'use our kit or the money gets it'.
>you and your peers insist on telling us, over and over and over and over again, at tedious fucking length, how much you "don't care what others think"
Bingo! I suspected that there was a pattern here, but until now I've been unable--you know--to put my finger on it. Thank you, endlessly, STB!
(I'd use an icon displaying a very different digit, flipped in the direction of the twitcherati, if one were available--but no such luck. Anyway, I'm off to the agora so that I can posture and flash my Apple tat. I'd add 'and to wind up the twitcherati', but apparently they never need winding, never need winding, never need winding. Tah!)
