Sounds like a damn good plan.
ID card or not, teenagers are always up to bloody something and could probably use a good dose of clepped lugs on a regular basis.
Bin the machines and lose everything, then give a repair quote that includes "data recovery" to almost justify it? :/
That doesn't make sense.
I think what you meant was http://nooooooooooooooo.com/
I know that's what I've just done sat at my desk.
Re: Techology and Faith
"the current western Atheist view"
There is no such thing.
I am a PC repair guy (among other things), and I still won't set up your smegging iFad, and certainly not for free in my spare time.
If cash money is offered I might consider it, but that's pretty rare, for some reason people see technical assistance as something they deserve just for knowing me in the most vague manner.
Even taking payment for a job is risky, as people then expect a lifetime of support to be paid for by the thirty quid or whatever they paid for an hours work.
Re: I'll echo the comments above...
yeah, I mainly use my phone for data and voda are bloody awful.
One month to go before I can cut them loose and move over to 3.
Not my sort of film (as I'm not an earlyteen girl), but surely all that's important is whether the fans enjoyed it?
I care about as much for the Razzies as I do about any other daft made up award. I'm sure they would have slated the films I loved as a kid if they were around then.
It's all bollocks really.
I don't really like his stuff, but I think I'll steal it and pass on a few copies for the sake of it now.

It won't make the slightest difference to me Doug, but the consequences to you will be devastating. In your mind, I'll be dead, and with no one to guide you out, you'll be stuck here in permanent psychosis. The walls of reality will come crashing down around you. One minute, you're the savior of the rebel cause; next thing you know, you'll be Cohaagen's bosom buddy. You'll even have fantasies about alien civilizations as you requested; but in the end, back on Earth, you'll be lobotomized! So get a grip on yourself, Doug, and put down that gun!
If too many people drop their phones while using it, it might end up being a flash in the pan.
MDPV is a helluva bathtime product.
16 albums, or one album 16 times, who can tell?
" And still no one buys their phones....."
then they are very silly, even the bottom of the line Lumia 610 that I've got for work is an absolutely excellent bit of kit.
just a dumb kid doing dumb kid things, hardly a danger to the public worthy of the costs of a bloody police investigation.
Plod really likes a nice soft target though, they'll probably CS gas him while they're "investigating" just to make it worth the visit.
Re: More than that
Well of course, they'd be stunned at the very idea that you could possibly want to share such a magical and revolutionary device with anyone!
Not that I'm even thinking of buying the Surface.
Re: Read the background material
if you re-read the paragraph you quote, it does state that it's talking about needing to be licensed and capable of driving "on public roads for testing purposes" at this stage, I don't think even google allows it's engineers to work drunk or stoned.
The aim is clearly stated as including use by non licensed passengers, and if non licensed why not also plastered? You can't legally drive either way.
At last, this is the sort of tech that I identify with living in a post 2000AD world!
Make it happen and I may well turn rabid google fanboy for life.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
All I want to know on behalf of us thickie non scientists is....
are we any closer to either plasma rifles or lightsabres today than we were yesterday?
Whatever muppet in the CPS that decided this was a worthwhile case to spunk money on should be taken out back and shot.
And I would like the court to note that I am not volunteering to do that myself!
enough in profits to make Solomon blush, but he's just not blushing deeply enough!
My heart bleeds.
Whatever "cool" may or may not be, it's not decided by a gowned and wigged old geezer in any court, of any land.
I like that prior art has been noted in this case, Apple may have been the first to get it right and have a hit with the form factor, but it was not nearly the first to try it.
Re: not for profit
yes it would have been much less creepy if he'd gone in for some blackmail rather than just checking out some famous boobies....the freak!
hur dur sexual assault lol
The real question, is AVG still as much use as a chocolate fireguard?
Every outbreak I've had to deal with for friends and family over the last few years has been riddled with nasties on AVG's watch.
Someone call Karl Pilkington, this is a job for Bullshit Man.
Suppose it's not that surprising, he's always been a bit (okay a lot) of a douche if you look back at how he treated his Elite/Frontier associates.
Publishers are lucky we are still buying games at all, in a world where every other industry is vying for your hard earned with better and better deals, videogame merchants seem to think there is still room to keep squeezing.
Last new release I picked up was Star Wars: The Old Republic just before Christmas, where knowing it was days till Santa would be loading up his sleigh and that they had a very hot game on their hands I was lightened of £45 for a copy by "Game", well over the odds for a PC game and I'd probably think twice before spending that on a console game either.....add a monthly sub in there and you have the answer to why I never usually go near new release games. I'd been waiting a long time so this was a massive exception to my usually cast iron rule of not buying till the price drops.......which has nothing to do with the pre-owned scene and everything to do with not enjoying getting shafted.
What does Dave even think we're spending our trade in "fortunes" on if not more games?!? Has anyone pointed him at GOG.com either? A whole site of games so worth the asking price that I am paying all over again decades after release you say? No sales past the first week you say? Selling shit and expecting me to eat it I say!
Oh I don't trade in games anyway, it's another massive rip off scam of the retailers....however as a kid I depended on trading in or outright swaps to fund my habit (back when shops were indie and knew your name and gave a toss about whether you came back next week or not).
wow, I take it they're not smartphones then? No point owning one of those if you don't have a toilet to sit on.
you are holding it wrong, expecting too much and living in the wrong place, case dismissed.
And if you don't have a BBC accent straight from the 1900's, you're saying it wrong too.
It's been pretty hilarious watching my companies middle managers try Siri out for the first time so far.
Evi on the other hand understands what I'm saying extremely well, although it still hasn't been able to comply with a single request for me yet.
I think all the voice functions out there need a bit longer in the oven.....not I'd ever use them in public, I'd rather be caught trous down and hands full than be caught talking TO my phone :D

Why not Zoidberg?
"British government top boffins"
is that a euphemism for mumsnet?
Re: Ah but can it answer the following?
Thanks for the heads up on this one Apple, never heard of it before today.
And what a fantastic experiment, I am going to see how it handles Captain Morgan and some fuzzed out stoner rock later.
Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit sniffing glue.
