"[Coomer] also said that photos of the prototype boxes would be coming soon, but that for now they're still in too raw a state to share with the public."
And if it doesn't look like a Portal Sentry Turret I'm not interested
1 billion miles?
Shouldn't that be one beeellion miles?
Re: Far enough...
> But seriously, I would laugh my pants off if it hit a massive black wall full of little white lights.
Sounds to me like it did .. entering and reentering the magnetic field ...
If it does manage to get through and out: Is it insured for crossing the galactic super highway?
I'm no longer sure whether I'm looking at typos or sarcasm
too simple a study
In this one predator/one prey scenario I see how it works, but to scale that up to the plains of Africa and fish in the sea where many predators eat many prey is ignoring many other factors.
Publicity driven science seems to have all the simple answers
Re: Can you still get Spangles?
Why not phone up the factory and see if they will give you the source -erm recipe, etc, etc
so could I ...
With this legislation could I register myself as a company and say "Suuure I tried to contact the rights owners of my media collection, but no-one was home." Then sit back and watch lawyers fight it out between themselves. In a cage preferably. With water pistols. And baboons
I'm thinking that his will do better than R-Pi for getting the kids into coding.
How long before someone releases it has hardware? Oooh! Big Trac with DCPU interface ?!?
know what i miss?
I miss the little loading thing.
Google now loads stuff in the background and you'll never know if the connections halted or someone tripped over the wireless or switched on the microwave or stood a brew on the server or ...
Pictures or ... never mind. It was in Florida. I'll keep my imagination in LA
online virtualisation would be better
>How about a virtual machine that speaks machine code and does groovy retro things, connected to a social networky thing so that kids can incentivise each other through achievements, challenges, contests and what not. The BASIC, Pascal, SmallTalk etc interpreters could be unlockables...<
Computers are already out there, but the hardware is hidden behind layers of libraries that makes coding a high level exercise. And this runs *nix which hides the hardware behind layers of libraries and perpetuates the high level paradigm.
What's needed is a virtual hardware with LEDs, keys and buzzers and training for educators to enthusiastically teach it
This is a solution looking for a problem
The people here who really want this are already experienced bit-shifters and not used to a teaching environment
The 8bit computers were a futuristic marvel in their time which got kids interested. Now they're museum pieces with no sense of wonder cause they can't watch cats falling over on youtube with them.
8 colours? 16 pixel sprites? Bleeps? This is an iPod world and the kids need something to WOW them.
Put it on tracks with sensors and let them write a maze solver - an educational tool not just a fancy box.
McFly - pass me that banana skin
Does this mean that portable powerstations fired by *ahem* organic matter will soon be fitted behind the seats of deLoreans?
It's bad enough following chip-shop smelling fat-burners
I'll get me coat coz I'd rather walk there
put the truck into overdrive
drain all the fuel and head for the island .. with an AC/DC soundtrack
once again the police go after the little man
... literally in this case. Were they intimidated too?
Does this mean that granny who doesn't add any plug-ins or fonts is less trackable than the tech-savvy?
Does this also mesh with target market?
I would've thought that the larger/more lucrative market is the casual email/shoppers rather than tech-savvy cynics
Pure and simple and black and it will absorb everything until Bruce Willis and Milla Jovovich can fall in love to stop it
I read that while sagely nodding
Then I realised I hadn't taken in a word and was singing along to the radio instead.
But in Quantum Physics I can do both.
Pfft! I no kwantum fizzicks, me.
does this mean
a black hole really did swallow us whole and spat us into an identical parallel universe?
One thing I'm unsure about ...
These protons whipping round and round gain angular momentum from the surroundings .. Earth
Not to question where the dump is located cos that may make things worse!!
Doom Gloom and 48hour days!!
re: moral maze
So .. what you're saying is ban research - think of the kidz?
But this made me :/
"boys who received the video-game system immediately spent more time playing video games"
I want to know: what crime this was tagged onto
What else was he doing to have his HD looked at?
Or is the law now able to enter your home and check all your computers, back-ups, C64 & Spectrum tapes ... ?
just trying to pre-empt the next story, but ...
Another night's sleep broken ... what power did it get to, then?
trains crashing into nuclear storage casings, fireworks exploding, icecaps melting ...
Nightmare machine indeed!
Another high energy run from the nightmare machine
Another night's sleep ruined ... Lights in the sky, dreams of clowns with custard pies; and Augustus Gloop
Will the nightmares never end? Switch it off now!
There's something strange happening
Is this why I couldn't sleep last night?
Although I wasn't aware of the terror being induced in the matter being spin-dizzied in the caves of France, my sleep was broken by strange dreams of swatted flies, traffic accidents and *ahem* fluid leaks.
Investigations must be carried out of the possible implications on our collective psyche!
Paid by the word?
What a load of ... erm ... 'hot air' ... to recognise that a mod chip allows counterfeit products to be displayed!
It's funny* that only in the last sentence common sense is mentioned.
Maybe if that was applied at the start a whole load of money & time could have been saved...
The start being ... ? 1984? 1973? 1066??
* Funny; being peculiar, worthy of note and not at all amusing
Uh, wait .. What?
Does that mean we'll all have a flickering box of light in the corner of the room giving us implanted memories?
Uh, wait. What?
miffed coz they're exposed as not scientific
A helicopter for disco lights in the sky?
Who invited the strippers?
They were a bit too realistic. And early!

> It's a logo of a vulture, what do you expect it to look like. Besides, their logo has a shoulder and is facing the right way.
It's a vulture in exactly the same style & proportion as our beloved ElReg, and facing the WRONG way! -- with a shoulder.
The placing of the eye is 'stylised' too. Ooh! But it's red!
Sheesh! Next it'll be okay for hungry-bird pie-search websites to misspeel themselves There Gister
Haha nice one Reg. An April fools joke in July.
.. it is ... isn't it?

I remember back when Netscape declared their new browser paradigm an OS.
Then M$ got worried and kicked their arse.
Things haven't changed ,then.
