"You have the ability to completely turn the sensor off in your settings,"
It's amazing how I STILL don't trust them.
I was paranoid before, but now the NSA thing has hit I'd consider burying it in concrete *just in case*.
NOW we know why they keep changing the bl**dy charger!
It wasn't to make money, it was for our protection!
Come back Tim Cook, all is forgiven!
Re: There are 4 or 5 persons in the World....
I dunno why, but the first two names that occurred to me were Jeffrey Archer and the Gocompare bloke...
Re: Dinosaur resurrection out of the question!
At least it's a break from horse :)
Re: Defuse The Situation
"Raptors can open doors, but they are slowed by them. Using the floor plan on the next page, plot a route through the building, assuming raptors take 5 minutes to open the first door and half the time for each subsequent door. Remember, raptors run at 10 m/s and they do not know fear."
This *forced* me to look up xkcd raptor cartoons ;)
Re: "Legitimate download sites like amazon.com"
Excellent link, thanks for posting! :)
Kinda reminds me of the cynical-c "pirate-a-dvd-to-avoid-annoying-anti-piracy-warnings" diagram...
It's just that 2013 is the year of the twat :)
Re: Dilbert predicted this'd happen in 2003
lol! Good find :)
Re: Those share certificates...
I would rather use the puppy though ;)
Timed to balance Instagram debacle?
One has to wonder...
Re: Good old in-your-face book
"fundamentally what made it great has gone and can't be easily regained"
Jolly good! I just wish that in Facebook's case, it would happen a little faster (and bloodier).
I could hope that this would serve as a lesson to other big companies, but in the real world...
Re: Where to even begin...
I agree, great post!
Anyone who can sell a journalist a carved wooden dolphin...
... whilst blacked up, sporting a slight limp and HALF A TAMPON up his nose is pretty bloody interesting to me!
I laughed so hard I had to wipe away the tears ;)
Re: "Running in the Background"
The rootkit of all evil? :)
If you're asking the Gamesmaster...
...you might be waiting a while for his reply...
See icon :)
Re: ...not again.
Certainly Google seem to be the lesser of the evils at present.
I for one won't be buying any Apple Rimjobs anytime soon :)
Re: It doesn't look like the most efficient use of space.
The trees are generating the atmosphere for the iCloud...
Spot on! I think they only have the single player campaign just so they can say they have one.
The multiplayer is what it is meant for, and it is the multiplayer I know and love... even though I die a lot... to twelve year olds... *sob* :(
I was with Blizz too until...
"He also wants the Court to force Blizzard to drop Battle.net as a requirement to run the games."
He may be a moron, but this I happen to agree with.
Re: Google taking over the military...
My head hurts! @_@
Google taking over the military...
If they could be turned, they would be a powerful ally... :)
No different from a Frankie Boyle joke
Tasteless absolutely, but would Frankie be charged for it?
Only one player remains...
... he says "DING" :)
Re: Apple Slave Owners United
While I agree with the sentiment; it's not the "twats" fault for wanting their shiney new iPhone, it's Foxxcons fault for having such crappy working conditions (in China!? surely not...) and Apple's fault for continuing to employ Foxxcon when they KNOW this is still going on.
I for one...
welcome our new robot overlords... and their pleasing array of wrist actions =D
I can still remember realplayer being first released, then gradually turning into a bloated piece of crap...
Then again, I can still remember Flash being released... oh and Firefox... :)
Re: Will it be backward compatible?
@jason 7: good point! but being able to do this does mean I'll be able to get rid of at least some of the old crap
Will it be backward compatible?
I hope to god that old 360 games work on this...
That being said, I don't think god will be listening very much :P
Do not feed the trolls!
I wonder what they would name a true IE6 fix...
It's the first time I've ever heard of anything like this occuring. :)
BSc, MIT, BTEC, CCNA, DVLA, TLA and lord of the known universe
Good on you!
There's always Apple! They never impinge on anyone's priv... oh wait!
Still, there is Microsoft, THEY never imp.... oh wait!
Look on the bright side, at least when Google do it, it's mostly for free =)
Re: Better late than never ?
Well said; one of the reasons (naive as they are) for getting a bloody Mac in the first place!
I agree with you Mr Spoon, alas when it came to voting not even Jar Jar Binks, the introduction of midichlorians (thereby dispelling the magic) or annoying Anakin shouting "yippieeeee" could tip the scales against the utter piece of shite that was Highlander 2.
At least Star Wars had a semi-decent plot which the original trilogy could follow on from... But it might come a close second :P
Pretty good for an ex-lorry driver!
This guy has done slightly-well for himself :)
Re: Preview pics on an LCD screen has a patent?
"I thought there was a "non-obvious" requirement?"
Presumably Apple couldn't patent being a bunch of w*nkers then...
Maybe they'e copying Apple?
Imagine how good all this would look on Apple's new Mountain Yak OS (TM) :D
While I don't disagree
Wouldn't giving it back to her lessen the impact of his message?
Couldn't she see it as "daddy having his joke" and not learn anything from it?
Plus pretty much the only time she will learn these lessons are when something like this happens.
You only saw him shoot the laptop...
It had its lid down, it was carefully placed on the grass.
If it had been me, I would have stripped the major components prior to the shooting - who's to say he didn't? He certainly had the knowhow, enough time and he did plan it all out...
I couldn't agree with you more (though you could have just written that into one paragraph *snigger* =P)
I myself have 3 CV's; each customised for the different fields I'm applying for.
All irrelevant crap, GCSE grades have gone byebye because they're now irrelevant and I actually need the space! I agree with a lot of the folks here, page one is the "impact" page, the one I try to make count.
To the OP of this mini-thread: you just carry on with your 9 page effort, you're making it much easier for me even though you're doubtlessly better equipped for the job =P"
Normal for Norfolk :)
This kinda reminds me of the Norfolk woman who had "Do not resucsitate" tattooed to her chest and "PTO" on her back :)
Password tattoos anyone? :D
Couldn't agree more!
You're far better people than me in allowing people free access. I think my wireless network is the only one bothering to use any encryption in my street.
I've even warned some of the neighbours about this sorta thing only to have them shrug!
I suppose the silver lining is in that anyone wanting to get upto something will leave my connection alone as it's easier to access SKY181 or [insert_easily_researchable_router_model_with_default_admin_passwords] down the road... *shrug* =)
I may be bald...
But I'm furtile =D
Unless we read about it we can't disapprove! :)
Beat me to it!!
Not literally :D
Black ops reminds me a lot of COD5: World at war
There's this whole feeling of it being the 'halfway' thing before the next good COD game comes out... kinda like what Vista was to 7. But I guess this is what happens when you try to goad your dev's into rushing a new version out each year to milk the franchise - it lacks love.
There're a lot of good features; I like not instantly dying everytime some git summons a helicopter for instance - a good nerf for those who don't dedicate their whole life to learning everything about the game just to enjoy it. The whole game just seems to lack polish for me...
You shouldn't let it put you off...
If you think like this you'll never experience anything :)
As long as you're sensible, you should be fine.
(Why do you need to put in your address or phone number if the people already know you!?)
Part of the 'standards' process involves considering the users or "freetards" as you so colourfully describe them. (See your own link.)
Perhaps you yourself should think yourself before spouting off.
