Whats next, Horsefly, Housefly and an elephant fly...
If Apple dropped their price by at least £200 for the iPhone 5 then they will get a bigger market share.
At the moment the prices on Apple's site are: 16GB : £529.00, 32GB : £599.00, 64GB : £699.00
I won't be upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 8 at all.
I will wait and see what Windows 9 will be like.
Thats if Microsoft has seen the errors of it's ways and separate the Windows interface and TIFKAM into separate OSes.
Since things are done in China more cheaply than Western countries, won't it be a pay cut if you went to work in China?
There should be a new category just for Battleship.... Worst Alien Weaponry
They were the pegs from the board game.
I've not needed to use Java in years.
I wanted to try Minecraft the other month until I realised it requres JRE.
I'll just wait for a native Windows version if they ever create one.
Time for a new Trek series based on Klingons...
Lots of fighting, battles and a lot less of Holo-Suite / Holodeck stories.
Don't forget luggage allowance and in-flight meals... That'll add to the price.
for Futurama reference...
How was this ever awarded?
It's time for Judges to tell patent trolls if they are not using "their invention" they should lose the patent.
"A fine or up to 2 years"... not much of a stiff sentence.
If you want local ads on the radio you would be listen to the local radio station.
If you dont want ads it's BBC Radio.
And how many listen to Internet Radio through their phone anyway?
UTuneMe will die off before long.
Can they make it sound like a ZX Spectrum loading a game?
The Judge should order Apple to put the apology link at the top of the page so people can see it and the apology should contain Apple's name and logo to authenticate the the apology.
They changing rep grinding in patch 5.1
If you have a character at least revered with a faction, all your other characters will get double rep for that faction.
They are even going to increase the rep speed from revered to exalted.
Not part of a weather balloon then...
"Anybody remember what Startrek Stardates were based on?"
Difficult to say. Check out http://trekguide.com/Stardates.htm for calculating Stardates.
Won't be long before you have to be over 18 to use the Internet and must hold a valid Internet License.
What will this mean for Android?
Will all phone makers using Android be watching their backs?
Should they consider moving to WP8?
Not if they fire in the other direction.
Don't think I've played a Ubisoft game since the Amiga days.
...a CGI of Hartnell.
"Does this mean that Apple have admitted to Reverse engineering??"
It looks like it to me.
And don't companies have something in the small print about not reverse engineering their stuff?
They need to find out which products were reversed engineered and sue Apple.
Damn... Cameron Colley beat me to it...
How about shorten Metro to Me and call it Windows Me.
Since it's spelt Me and not ME, it won't be confused with Windows ME.
".....it's the Mithril. That's stuff's seriously expensive."
They need to head over to Azeroth. Loads of Mithril nodes to mine.
I'm on Virgin Media (still on 20Mb, waiting for 60Mb upgrade to happen) and when I downloaded latest Mist of Pandaria beta patch which was 20Gb I was getting 2.4Mb/s then within 30 mins this dropped down to 520Kb/s (that's megabytes and kilobytes not bits as displayed on MoP download).
That's how good VM's traffic shaping is. Over 80% reduction. Took bloody hours to download because of that.
When there was a power cut at the local Asda a few years ago, they searched your trolly for hidden alcohol, then estimate what the trolly is worth... Was £20 for £60+ of shopping.
It so we can prepare to write a computer virus and upload it into their mothership.... oh wait that has already been done in Independence Day.
This is all I can think of with these companies manipulating the numbers to suit their needs.
Didn't they out-source the bag to India?
I wouldn't use Tesco's for anything other than buying food and that's if I'm near one.
"The problem is that IT systems have become vastly more complex. Delivering an e-banking service could be reliant on 20 different IT systems. If even a small change is made to one of these systems, it can cause major problems for the whole banking service, which could be what's happened at NatWest. Finding the root cause of the problem is probably something NatWest is struggling with because of the complexity of the IT systems in any bank."
This is why out-sourcing IT is bad. You fire the permanent staff who knew all the quirks of the system and would have pinpointed the problem in no time at all.
And now the decision to fire IT staff has come back to bite them in the arse.
Facebook has settled a suit that could have seen it compensating 150 billion people in the United "States."
150 billion people? Facbook making people up now to improve their shares?
"She should start drawing it, it would probably make the food more appealing."
In one blog she did draw it because she forgot to bring her camera.
"Richards reckons cloud computing has the potential to deliver €700bn (£564bn) of economic benefit in the five biggest European economies and generate five million new jobs in the five largest member states."
Generate 5 million new jobs??
How can moving your data to the cloud generate 5 million new jobs?
It's more like move the data to the cloud then off source the jobs to India.
So the browser will be bogged down with loads of confirmation cookies from all EU web sites you visit.

Who ever though up this law wants slapping round the head with a wet kipper. They have no clue.
My nephew is 10, he uses it as well as his class mates.
Like the story says so much for the age-verification process during sign up.
"At best they will change the name (no we are not tracking you... we are following you, totally different)."
Both methods can be summed up in one word: Stalking.
Windows 8 will have classic Windows Desktop as well as Windows 8 Metro.
You will still be able to use normal Windows applications in Desktop mode.
Windows 8 Desktop no longer has Aero so its all grey. Search for the complaints about Visual Studio 11 and how grey that is.
When you have a Metro App in the foreground, your previously opened Metro Apps go into sleep mode.
If your system requires more memory, sleeping Metro Apps are terminated without warning to release memory.
Your wall will now be showing "[ac] is viewing pr0n.xxx. Click here to see what [ac] is viewing."
Never noticed a thing...
My Virgin Media connection has been working fine.
Was it only certain areas that were affected?
We could leave them there to burn up in re-entry
While applying the Francis pressure on the grape, does it make a "Oooo!" sound?
Has Virgin Media laid "any" cables?
Isn't everything they own were aquired with mergers and take overs of Telewest and NTL?
Is this EMC's answer to Life, the Universe and everything?
We don't have enough court room drama in the tech industry. Kaspersky should just sue Apple for not allowing them to infest iOS.
They would have done if Microsoft said the same thing about Windows.
Wouldn't SpaceX be better licencing the automatic docking technology that's in the ATV for the Dragon capsule instead of the manual procedure the IIS crew need to do?
