A fine political hatchet job, Mr Worstall I congratulate you.
Appropriately given it's name, to my mind it doesn't look too dissimilar to 1/4 of a bloodhound missile with those parts slightly rearranged.
Thanks for the interesting article.
I got elastic bands keepin my shoes on.
Got those swollen hand blues.
Got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from.
What, a twat?
First worlders - less sense than money?
So you couldn't see the poverty for the trees.
Another massive leap in road safety?
I'm a cyclists, but these type of attention seeking events bore me.
Not when it's stuck on the M25, it isn't
Their consumer electronics don't seem to last much longer than this year's high street fashion items, so a good match based on durability.
Keystone Cops .... with guns.
So the W1A tv series isn't an exaggeration.
The "I want to feel good about myself" cause?
It also seems odd for you to use the word starvation in the article title, when increasing numbers of children are actually going to school feeling hungry, a consequence of contracting real wages and disappearing safety net benefits for many people in this society.
"Stop vigorous wrist agitation long enough to allow you to attach watch to said wrist"
For once the clique of the fat blotted entity, sucking dry the government titty, rings true.
Unless you're telling us you live on £365.25 of food per year, I don't see the point of this challenge.
Or perhaps it's one of those dual-edged charity events that can't be criticised; Oh look I'm doing this for 'charity' so aren't I marvelous, but the subtext is "see I can live on a pound a day, so why can't poor people in this country do that, rather than just sitting around watching Jeremy Kyle all day on their huge flat-screen tellies, paid for with tax payer's money"
Single point of ....
Poorly fitting socks cost UK industry £127.53 million a year.
Yes, fifty quid seems a bit steep.
I wonder if they'd invest in some smegma?
I'd be interest to hear Suzanne Vega voice an opinion on the matter.
He seems to have given a little bit of entertainment to a lot of people; rather a decent thing to aspire to or have done.
By the sound of it a good bloke.
Apple invent the long rumoured wristwatch, might these catch-on and replace fob watches ? :unsure:
The Markets are sacred, they must be protected at all costs.
Only those on the inside have the right to do this sort of thing.
You can get it on Gog.com as part of the Battle Island/Isle compilation iirc.
"However, there are some serious pretenders to the company's action camera crown, not to mention knock-offs, so it'll be interesting to see how GoPro’s future pans out in an increasingly crowded market"
So maybe it would be timely for The Reg to do some comparative reviews, as some IT people tend to like this sort of kit.
"what else do you need besides the cloud?"
having had Archos products before, might I suggest build quality this time?
Lets see,.... Nope still not missing it and the seven kinds of stupid it breeds.
Oodles of green-wash helps the medicine go down; Doctor prescribes another incrementally obsolescent consumer gadget.
I'm guessing the 'remote assistance' settings screen on my router is that same as 'remote management'?
This news has prompted me to learn more about my router and broadband connection, me being a non-techie person, not in the IT industry.
"$521m charge for stock-based compensation expenses"
The 'pumping' is over, the 'dumping' is about to begin.
What an enormous waste of energy and effort.
B&N probably pay taxes in the countries they do most of their business in, unlike some others?
I think lifting a small weight occasionally is less 'effort' than winding something for 5 minutes.
'Accident' waiting to happen?
Doesn't matter, it's served its purpose, namely enable those in the know and in the financial sector to make a killing.
Now that peoples' pension funds have been 'invested' in the long term pig in a poke, the pump and dump merchants/bankers/internet entrepreneurs have moved on to the next big thing. Few weeks ago it was Twitter, a company with no significant revenue nor clear idea of how to make a profit.
Next month, next year it'll be some other example of irrational exuberance, thought I'm pretty sure the modus operandi of those on the inside is carefully thought out and entirely legal.
I'm only midly surprised the bbc didn't commission fresh series of 'Doctors' and 'Who Do You Think You Are?' purely so they could shoehorn yet anniversary material into their schedules.
I value my internet activities at $79,950; anyone want to invest in my Register and cycle forum posts, five thousand quid give you a 10% 'stake'?
There are already to many things in my life, why would I want 'them' to communicate with other things belonging to someone else?
For me this was the most interesting piece on the register today; maybe you guys could think of upping your game a bit in some areas of technology coverage, less articles about Apple vs X/rest of the world, perhaps?
No the subject was about people being hoodwinked into installing a virus because they clicked on a link about a celebrity, I commented that I'd never heard of them, didn't care about them and by implication I'd be entirely unlikely to wish to find out more.
You however seem to have an encyclopaedic knowledge about them and the latest hyped product they starred in; in my view that's trivia, but you might be more their target audience?
Re: Nothing the Wiser.
"Lily Collins was a main character in a film called The Blind Side, I don’t know if you have heard of it, it only grossed over $300 Million, and was nominated for two Oscars, Best Picture and Best Actress, being piped to Best Picture by the Hurt Locker (deservedly so) and winning the Best Actress, as well as winning a best picture Golden Globe and a load of other awards. She was also the lead in the film Mirror Mirror, which made over $100 Million and was also Oscar nominated (all be it for Best Costume design)."
Not heard of this either, my initial response is it's another product some marketer wants me to buy, it appears to have gotten some awards handed out by people who work in that industry and have a vested interest in promoting their products.
My general approach to films is to really on word of mouth and above all the test of time, if something is still regarded as a good film 5,10 or 15 years down the line, I'll get around to watching it.
"Not saying I’m a fan of her, and I understand the attempt at the joke, but in she’s not exactly unknown,"
I wasn't a joke, I'd simple very heard of her, nor for that matter many people who appear in tabloid too.
I too had never heard of this person before.
And googling left me still none the wiser.
I'm pleased to be getting older and not giving a flying something about most trivia.
Still don't know who Miles Cryus is either.
Account permanently deleted, goodbye facebook.
They should make a tough multi-screen smartphone, it could have several 6-9 inch screens supported in an unbreakable steel or iron grid, which could be painted bright red, so easy to find if you misplaced it.
Hang on, you reckon it takes about two dozen tons of crude oil to make 30kg of computer?
Colour me mauve.
I wonder if racism is one of their other fascistic tendencies?
I'm interested that in a world of ever increasing processor power and general computerisation, consumer still buy into the notion that ink should rightly be one of the most expensive commodities on earth.
