You want to give them all our best tricks too?!
Am I the only one...
Why give it arms at all (other than goal keepers). doesn't need them for play. It must be quite a bit of programming to keep them out of the way. And if they are there for stabilization, a few gyros should do a better job.
Thank you, no...
I'm still waiting for the monkey butlers
That's all fine and well, but...
Can they figure out why they commit suicide under cars?
Drove out Interstate 80 in Neb/Col area, and there were many stretches of road 200-400 feet with literally hundreds of these guys turned to street pizza - a little slick to go over, BTW. Seemed strange, then on the way back, the same thing. But at one of these graveyards I see a little fella standing up on the shoulder, no cars in sight in front or behind, yet he times it perfectly to run under my wheels!
Made a quick backstory in my head though - he came upon the bodies if his slaughtered kin, and decided life was not worth living without them, and joined them when the next car came by...
Your Title Here
no, Jailbreaking a phone isn't NEEDED in France because they have to allow phones to use any network. That is only one of the two reasons folks jailbreak.
In France you still have to jailbreak to set up apps that Apple won't sell like the ones for tethering, etc. Is it legal for that purpose? I dont know French law, so I can't say. I also haven't seen the French warranty, but I'm sure Apple has something in there against jailbreaking anyhow.
I can imagine a much easier fix from Apple's point of view.
Add a line to the warranty related to jailbreaking, then next time you go for a software update instead of "fixing" your hack, Apple disowns you and will no longer update any software/firmware on that handset. Ever. Even after you sell it.
After all, if you decide to jailbreak their system, a conscious decision on your part, you obviously are only interested in the hardware - which there would still fall under the warranty of merchantability rules/laws. But the bits, well you'll have to "rely on the kindness of strangers."
Good luck with that.
I'm sure AT&T will come up with something unpleasant also.
the real reason?
I always thought that the taserings are increasing as the good old-fashioned beat down is on the decline. After all it:
1. doesn't leave those massive bruises that prove what you did after the fact.
2. is entertaining while your target goes all jiggly
3. is perfect for the playstation generation - push button to perform an action remotely
and most importantly,
4. avoid the physical exertion involved in giving a beat down - keeping the fat on the pigs
an additional bit
Since the RGB are almost aligned along the length of the fuselage (5 deg dif?), the two craft were probably running in almost exact opposite direction to each other, multiplying the speed difference.
Also, a camera that needs to combine these images will be calibrating itself to the altitude above the surface it is imaging, so something 1-10,000 feet short of the expected focus will also screw up the timing as well.
They don't think ROFL is a word either!
Remember, this is Pigeon Forge, TN.
Not only is 17 OK, it could even be a sister.
Y'all come back now, hear?
I am hoping
I am hoping it will merge to become "...Dumb Fucks...Bitch!"
Just keep piling on the boy genius' own words so we can bask in his reflected wisdom.
Probably he is just as bad today, since he never had to deal with any world but his own.
He went from douchebag student at a school that gives its students a feeling of privilege, straight to being the CEO...Bitch! of a company with enough money to literally wall himself off from the opinions of others. Age doesn't apply the gloss, so much as facing the harsh reality that the rest of the world is not impressed with you at all. Think about when you first went looking for a job, except for the top 5% it is a humbling experience - the first of many - that the majority of folks go through.
Has he ever 1) been in the presence of anyone who pointed out what a douche he is, and 2) if so, has he ever been in a position where he couldn't blow them off as "Dumb Fucks"?
Someone start putting together the hack so we can disable the Google monitors when our providers force these on us.
That and some masking tape over he camera lens (they will of course need to track your eye movements to bill for hits)
Not to be a bother,but...
assuming it worked at a distance (which it doesn't) if i wanted to adjust the climate, I would need to have the engine running, hence the key in the ignition, but somehow, I will have brought the fob with me, while leaving the car running elsewhere?
The learning continues...
I appreciate your efforts, but it seems only the Neds would be eligible to vote (and thus earn a party affiliation), the remainder are just there to be chased, Benny Hill style, by the BNPs into the Channel?
Aahh so that's how you split them up
As an American, I thought all your Tea Party types were in the BNP.
Now I see some of your distinctions:
Upper class twits = UKIP
Yobbos = BNP
Always enjoy learning about other cultures.
(yes, a rarity over here I know:)
It seems that that is up to the application developer no matter what can or cannot run on iPhone.
GW Shrub missed out
Why waterboard? Give your "Guest" a shot of this and then threaten to put a sack of kittens in the drink if they don't tell us everything we want to know.
Other bonuses, leaves no marks, and if the video gets out, it will create a whole new meme on YouTube - blubbing terrorists
Mao had his Little Red Book..
maybe we can collect his outpourings into a volume as well.
I vote for "The Big Book of Twits"
Because they are dim government bureaucrats? Like dim government bureaucrats worldwide.
Seems like they should remove the others at some point. After all, the IRS eventually removed the line on the tax form where you enter your income from "criminal or illegal activity." After 10-15 years of nobody seriously checking the box, they'll figure it out. Now, if they actually distributed the declaration before you got on the plane, not 30 minutes before landing - there is some language about not being allowed on the plane depending on your answers. I'm still waiting for the report of someone being chucked off by a dim crew member taking it literally!
The one with the base jumper rig built in, thanks.
No, No, No...
He's yours, not all the nut jobs come from the US.
Apparently, so is language...
Sorry, but if you want to act superior and smug in pointing out the errors of others, you may want to understand the language you are using in your attempt to belittle them..
GEOGRAPHY is obviously what you should have said. In the US, TOPOGRAPHY relates to the physical features of the land. Geography refers not only to the physical features, but also the geopolitical as well. Not knowing the human construct of Austria, therefore has nothing to do with topography, which in the most general description is topographically mountainous.
Yes, Americans knowledge of the world is pretty lousy, but you demonstrate that being an ass knows no bounds.
And, to finish off in your own tone, I assume you would not mind if I refer to you as a lowlife, since you come from the lowlands?
Yes an appliance
It should be fine for its purpose. I'd love to sit out back on a cool evening, and be able to do some browsing/reading, drink at hand.
You complaint sounds typical of the folks that do not understand that some products are focused on doing particular tasks, and are not supposed to be all things to all people. Have you ever wondered why you can't buy a riding cooker.
If you have to though, you you can always do your own genius hacks like this ;
You're missing the point
This is so when the fanbois next meet up at WWDC or a Trek Con, they can one up the others telling war stories of how they waited overnight to get their iPad, and it was horrifying the deprivations they went through - no more Red Bull?!?!?!, AT&T 3G clogged with the hundreds of fanbois tweeting about waiting on line, etc.
This is an upscale joint, ice cream won't do. Besides calling it gelato allows you to double the price...duh!
Just watch your screen
Plenty of the posters are citing Yahoo! and Bing showing preference for their own products, but that is just the tip of it.
Anyone remember the week the Nexus was announced? Were there any sites you went to that serves Google display ads that DIDN'T have ads for the Nexus on them? I only found it mildly annoying until I searched, then went to a site looking for care of bamboo plants, and there were Google served text and display ads for all sorts of plant care junk - AND the Nexus!
After that I was conscious of every one of their ads that showed up. Without fail if a site had display ads, at least one of them was Nexus regardless of the subject of the site. Became a bit of a challenge for me to find a topic on the web that was not deemed Nexus ad worthy.
Side note - with the rise of the Google apologists here, can we have an official designation for them? My vote is for Googleooids
turned the ice cap into a newt!
I'll Second Cope...
but Rope sounds too much like Dubbya and Palin
Have been wondering for some time now when I hear Fairey /Obama issue come up why there isn't a mention of the folks HE sued for using his *ahem* Original work product.
I think his suits against the folks who modified his Obama/Hope image to Nope, Dope and Hype should be mentioned since their one character edits express a lot more political content than the artistic content of his tri-tone posterization, and appropriation of Obama's keyword ever conveyed.
Why not ms Vance?
She wrote the article on this in the NY Times today, conflict of interest, or has she left El Reg?
Welcome to Mass.
The IT contract either went to the nephew of someone at the prison, or the IT firm that has been bribing State Senators for contracts :)
@ is he funny
Unfortunately, that type of humor is very American. Over here many of the people need to be told what to feel or think, so they can fit in as a regular guy. Saddest comment I ever heard was from someone at a party saying that she liked the laugh track on sit-coms because then she knew when to laugh. Really.. someone did say that.
It is also why you will always export plenty of comedies here, because the rest of us (or should that be U.S.) enjoy laughs from a clever set-up, or witty banter, which more a staple of the Brit comedies.
Why is everyone going iTablet
Just because it is the category name. Somehow iPad sounds like something the marketing folks could run with,pay off the iPod etc..
And one for the old timers - IBM went after "2" as a registered trademark
No...It's Just Boston
It is just the way they run things here. As long as things are manually operated they can give more no-work-required jobs to their kids and other relations.
When I moved here from New York I was floored when I saw the driver of one of these trams stop it, get out, grab a pry bar, throw the track switch with the pry bar, hang it up and get back in and resume driving. They cannot manage automated switching, so please don't expect them to figure out anything as advanced as safety systems.
The transit system here isn't designed to move people efficiently, just to drain taxes/fees to support the connected dim bulbs in the area.
