They just flipped the coin and changed the game
Now instead of 'How do we get our rankings higher?' it's just become 'How can we blacklist the other sites?'
I'm guessing it'll shift the game to insert bogey links in other sites; then a swift report to Google (Sir! Sir! Have you seen what Smithy has done?) and one less competitor to out rank you
Looks like a short time of blacklisting fun can make a difference to revenues
"[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...

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 ?!?
It is the game I bought my first PC for :)
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
In this modern era of cloud computing and choice who is still locked into just one browser/OS/w'ever
Multiple redundancy is a known fix for many IT errors
Henceforth I shall refer to number twos as 'covering a hedgehog'!
you need tittle tattle
I'm waiting for one of them to come up with something they can call positronic.
And promise they are "three laws safe" (tm)
Yeah the son was disgusted that Mom nearly caught him with a stiff one in his hands.
Or maybe when he ''sneezed'' because he had a cold and mommy cleaned him up.
I'll wipe off me coat
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.
I guess this is a deal breaker for clean energy in the future.
Windmills are here to stay
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
buzz buzz a diddle it
Way to bring back memories of an anthem from .. oooh .. 30 years ago!?!
Rockabilly & Matchbox FTW
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.
Am I too late?
Why weren't we warned about this *before* it actually happened?
Then I could've been prepared in case a flesh-flasher was wandering in front of me.
I don't get it
Is he saying that broadband is overvalued or tv is overpriced?
Why not make it tin-can shaped?
did they make it humanoid so it would fit in a EVA suit and then be able to go outside?
cancel the election!
By my reckoning this will turn into acid rain and lung burning fumes just in time for May 6th.
Gordon will be forced to cancel the election and declare himself PM-for-life
pass me a wii and stand back
what the title says
you'll be asked to close your eyes in Toys 'R' Us when passing the pole-dancing kits
tin foil hats at the ready for when the though crime detector vans appear
does this mean
a black hole really did swallow us whole and spat us into an identical parallel universe?
I'll have two
one at the house and one at work, so I can juice up a leccy car
Oh and one in the middle of nowhere for when I run out of go
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"
This [st/applic]ation is fully operational!
I, for one, welcome our new web based empire overlords.
... I just wish I could think of a relevant Caprica quote - but there are none ;)
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 ... ?
Playmobil (de)construction may be required
Who plays Barbie?
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
IF you see lights in the sky ...
... don't look!
Haha nice one Reg. An April fools joke in July.
.. it is ... isn't it?
Spin on this.
"Coming to the UK is a privilege that we refuse to extend to those who abuse our standards and values to undermine our way of life.”
I think someone should have a word with the ASA about this blatant spin.
