Re: It is what it is ...
"Unfortunately for your theory there's the law of contracts getting in the way."
And fortunately for us consumers!
"Went for WiFi Powerline LAN back to a base-station wired into the Thompson router. Good coverage now, even in the outbuildings, and none of the neighbours can listen to any DAB station, but that's not a problem because they don't even know what DAB is"
Re: The small ironies of life.
The small irony is that one of the most widely used weapons against people parking in the wrong place, is to immobilise their vehicle so it stays in said place.
He _did_ contact GoDaddy first, but they declined to help him.
Re: Is it just me, or
The Free software vendor referred to in the original comment is OpenSUSE. The proprietary application is vBulletin.
Re: "90% of what's needed" external storage
It'd be cheaper and easier to just buy a device with an sd slot.
Re: It's an option
Where is it in the settings on the website? I've scoured every setting and can't find one to turn it off.
In the meantime, I'm using this greasemonkey script instead: http://userstyles.org/styles/94605/hide-twitter-timeline-image-previews

"if they see a version no. they don't like you don't get the site, just a nag message"
You get a nag message and limited functionality. They don't remove your access completely.
"In general, Gmail supports the current and prior major release of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari on a rolling basis. If you use a browser other than those listed below, you'll be automatically directed to the basic HTML view of Gmail."
But you gave enough of a shit to comment...
Re: "Fingerprint sensors are a decent step..."
"Fingerprints are usernames, not passwords."
But you can still change your username (sometimes). Once someone has your fingerprint, it'll be a painful process to change it.

"I'll just wait a bit longer for one with a decent sized screen and perhaps an integrated keyboard. If only I could get my hands on one of those now."
You just essentially described a touchscreen "ultrabook".

Re: Not the Objective-C runtime
Did you RTFA?
The Objective-C runtime was mentioned in relation to the ability to publish an app to the app store, that passes Apple's approval process. That part has nothing to do with the "charger".
You mention that a TV remote is easier for pause/ff/rw. Does this thing not support CEC?
Re: The question is...
Aren't there H&S regulations that say you must have a fire drill every x months? That'd get him outside.
The 'POP' of the bubble can't be too far away now!
Yes it runs fine in W7 if you don't mind being stuck with 4:3 resolutions. Just be sure to run the installer & game in compatibility mode (I used Win 2k iirc).
Looks like he invented time travel too...

Some oversights in this approach
If these automated calls go to an answering machine, that means that the scammer will know it's a real number with a valid recipient. Equivalent to replying to a spam email and confirming to the spammer that the email address has a valid recipient.
Maybe I should have been clearer, Sky's online offering of content blows VM's out of the water.
LGI had a big rollout of a decent new online service last year in the Netherlands. If they buy VM then hopefully us VM customers will get something that actually rivals Sky's online offering!
Do you think...
...Gartner outsourced this report?
Guess I'm one of the lucky ones
First of all, I'm not trying to defend VM, just sharing my own experience.
I recently was "upgraded" to the superhub (about 6 weeks ago) and did notice the packaging had been opened to put a label over the power socket on the hub saying "Do not use your old PSU".
I've not had any issues at all (except the routing problem which crippled Youtube that wasn't down to the hub itself), I'd be interested to know if the people who have the problems are using older kit?
When will you people get bored of typing that on every bloody thread?
Correllation != Causation
"While I agree from a legal/ethic standpoint it seems to be sales this generation were directly related to how easy the console was to hack (WII trivial, Xbox harder, PS3 damn hard)."
Wii launched in 2006 @ £179
360 launched in 2005 @ £280
PS3 launched in 2007 @ £425
I think that is directly related to sales in this generation.
A headline about Yahoo! with only one exclamation mark!
Re: something is amiss here....
"far better for it to be run by a private company that has an interest in keeping it's customers happy and improving services."
And there is the key flaw with privatisation of public services. The private companies that run these services have only one goal. To make as much money for their share/stakeholders as possible, if that happens to result in happy customers and improved services then great! Unfortunately 99.9% of the time it results in customers being screwed at every turn and worse service.
"4 in brits are dumb!"
How does the "brits" measurement scale translate into number of elephants in an olympic sized swimming pool?
Re: Mobile phone use
"Or would they have been doing their makeup, playing with the radio, looking in the glove box for sweets, reading a magazine, chatting to a friend in the car, turning round to slap the kids
Since there isn't a specific act to ban any of those then they can't pose any sort of serious hazard to driving"
There is an act to ban all of those, and any others. It's called driving without due care and attention.
If it's between the account and password pages, then what is stopping the crims from finding out what your picture & phrase are?
Sorry? Did you mean to comment on this: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/10/10/ftth_council_uk_penetration_knocked_again/ ?

They didn't have a change of heart...
Google didn't back track, have a change of heart or anything. They just elaborated on their initial statement to remove any potential confusion.
Talk about a non-story!
Re: Great image, but
"If the youngest galaxy was formed 450 million years after the Big Bang, it is not 450 million years old, it is ~13.3 billion years old."
It was 450 million years old when the light used to produce this picture was emitted, therefore in the picture it is 450 million years old.
Re: No microSD-card slot?
It'll be under the flap on the top left, next to the micro sim slot (Original Droid Razr has a similar arrangement on the bottom left)
Since the original (well reborn) Razr only just got the ICS update OTA in the UK last week, I recommend you don't hold your breath on that one...

Re: Daft twats
How is it any different than buying a Xbox and needing to supply a TV (The xbox sits there and flashes lights at you unless you connect it to a tv)? Your argument is invalid.
Increased risk of death?
How can being fat or skinny increase the risk of death? The probability of death is 1/1, you can't increase that!
The font looks shockingly bad in Chrome.
And no mention in the article of how to change it back (if you wanted to for whatever reason).
In the email settings there's an option to hide from timeline, which has been set on all non fb email addresses, easy to change back if you're that way inclined.
Still, they shouldn't have blanket changed everyone's settings without notification anyway.
Virgin Media laid half a mile of cable in York just last month. I know this because I'm now connected to it.
Surely the problem...
...is a combination of over population in the affected areas, much more people than the water systems were designed to ever need to cope with, coupled with the sheer idiocy of having companies, whose only purpose is to make a profit, running vital infrastructure.
And before the pedant-mobile turns up, all private and publicly held companies exist for one sole ultimate purpose, to make a profit. That's the part of capitalism that people fail to understand.
All the previous comments already deal with Lewis, so I needn't add anything more there :-)
Re: Ice Cream?! Ice Cream?!
"Melt in your hand? Mess in your pocket?"
That sounds like you're holding it right (or left depending on personal preference)
So the ASA have basically said...
...that I can advertise my product as doing everything, just so long as I include the footnote that "This product may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area."
