"It's just an iPad, FFS "
So the Reg isn't looking to get back into Apples good books any time soon?... :D
Full sized SIM?
Not on .co.uk
Google only defaults to https on google.com, If you're a logged in UK user on the .co.uk domain, you still default to unsecured http:
"and the insurance issue is settled"
Wonder if they stumped up for fully comp?...
They're on to something
A big, slow, bag of gas with the manoeuvrability of a church must be a right bugger to shoot down.
No sailors on here then?
Modern GMDSS radios take an input from a gps receiver and will initiate a geo located automatic distress call when a 'big red button' on the radio is pressed (say when the skipper has his hands a bit full trying to control his craft / not sink etc).
So gps disruption may effectively disrupt emergency calls.
I'm glad someone said it
Excellent article Andrew.
Don't do it!
"Yeah, we know: Playmobil, or it didn't happen. A Playmobil representation of a woman in court presenting a Playmobil representation of the same scene? Hmmm..."
An infinite Playmobil recursion could open a rift in the space time continuum.
Was I first to comment on the comment story? Was I?
Keenan still has a presence on faceache:
Wonder what his status says?....
Thanks for the review Catherine.
Nothing new then
Looks like the Apple culture hasn't changed a lot (as evidenced with their vice-like control of newer 'i' devices).
"I want to do this"
"But why, it's a great idea"
"Because we say so"
Given the infinite vastness of the universe (and hence the inevitability of intelligent life therein), the law of probabilities means that in an alien language it's certain the Nicole's innocent sounding phrase actually translates to:
"Bow before us alien underlings. We intend to launch an invasion force at our earliest possible convenience and you'll be sorry, mark my words"
I'm pretty certain that the 'revelation' due this week will be that they've spotted an alien invasion fleet intent of having a bit of a pre-emptive strike.
My Hero doesn't meed the minimum spec...
For pities sake, you might have warned us that gotopless.org was likely to contain nudity and be therefore NWS! Am I a mind reader?!!
Yes, of course I clicked on the link.
Monkeys and typewriters
Oh, how I hate those predicable games.
Aren't duty free purchases ok because you've already gone through security and have bought them airside?
Oh my God
Square steering wheel!
Austin Allergic, sorry, Allegro!
Is that 'other pressures' like getting T-boned by passing Airbuses?
They did him a favour
The pub is a dive - he should be thanking them for a narrow escape.
Your paper reinforcing 'brackets' at straw junctions are actually 'gussets'.
Buy cheap, get cheap
Why are people surprised that their 'too good to be true!' super cheap 'unlimited' broadband turns out to be too good to be true?
You get what you pay for - go with Zen
Everyone knows that
electricians diagonal cutters are the tool of choice for SIM customisation.
Same story, different perspective?:
The wardens will have him - he's parked across two bays.
Nice write-up Andrew.
Thank God for Stringer.
I pay for this content BBC!
Looks like it's broken beebPlayer on Android too.
Words fail me with the BBC.
Original purchaser warranties are vastly more common than transferable ones and apply to just about every item of consumer electronics you can think of.
About the only exceptions that spring to mind are cars and houses (I guess due to market pressure).
I can be happy in my ignorance ...
... as they haven't made an Android version.
One more reason
to go with an Android phone.
Sure they aren't as quite as slick as iPhones (yet) but at least you have control and don't have to repeatedly drop your trousers and let Apple have its way with you.
My breakfast resurfaced
Words (almost) fail me.
What a nauseating experience I've just had - I couldn't force myself to watch to the end - make it go away.
Just like the BBC
I can't be the only one who's irritated by the "were you there, do you have any pictures / videos" question tagged onto the bottom of most of BBC news on-line's 'breaking' stories.
I've never seen a rusty space rocket before
are they making them out of Iron these days
Just remind me
what's the date :)
All the glamour of an orthapedic boot
and it cleverly sidesteps the road vehicle crash tests.
For the bargain price of 15 grand.
Can't see any downsides myself....
The Irish are going to feel really left out.
After all, they're all in the IRA aren't they?
UFO's my ar*e
So one blade failing at the hub couldn't take out another as the windmill continued to rotate?
Let me see....
UFO's or mechanical failure? Ooh tricky.....
"In the meantime, fear not - the Reg will not be bulking out its coverage with any more non-digital piracy stories unless something out of the ordinary happens."
I like the pirate stories, especially when we have at the scurvy dogs and give them a jolly good thrashing.
Bring back the Somali pirates.
Alien invasion is nigh
One look at the mindless bebo drivel stream and they'll fire up their starcruisers and pop over for some easy pickings.
You don't want stuff doing that (or indeed evaporating).
40 mile range?!
wouldn't even get me to work and back - what bl**dy use is that?
An ovewraed ler anyway
he world would be a beer place wihou 's
