Pay attention now...
"If you watch the film very carefully, you'll find that lightning send the DeLorean *forward* through time, not back. ("Back" was powered by stolen plutonium if memory serves, and at the end by "Mr Fusion".)"
And if you watch the sequel you will note that lightning does indeed send the DeLorean back in time to the wild west
Make the NHS paperless by 2018..
I wouldn;t worry - at the rate that utter moron Hunt is going the NHS will be hospital-less by 2018 never mind paperless!
I'll be amazed if anybody in Central London has noticed...
..because vodafones's data connections very rarely work at all around the EC2, EC3 or EC4 areas during the working day.
So hang on...
Does this mean that international roaming is never going to work on 4g devices without it reverting to 3g?
"As of this writing, an eBay search for "Samsung Galaxy S II" – the model Apple most wants banned – yields 1,521 results."
So what? A similar search on "iPhone 4" turns up 3,454 results
Already has been hackintosh'd along with all of the developer previews that came before it. Using the same methods I'm sure it would be trivial to get it installed on old unsupported macs too - just install chameleon bootloader and be creative with the smbios.plist that you create.
So will Crytek...
..and others be refunding customers or issuing free replacements of every game the customer bought when they are no longer able to play it due to having a console replaced under warranty?
Nope thought not - why bother when you can just force the customer to buy another full priced copy of a game they already own!
Maybe it's just me but targeted ads just don't work..
I don't get the point of targeted ads, they seem pointless to me - a case of trying to sell you something that in all probability you have already bought.
Example - I want to buy a new 5.1 amp so i google some reviews to find the best one that meets my spec and budget. I then google for the cheapest reputable dealer in the UK that stocks the amp I have selected and go ahead and buy it. Now having done that what is the point a few days later of bombarding me with ads for various 5.1 amp's including the one I have already bought?
Adds a whole new meaning to....
Adds a whole new meaning to 'Cut Price' or 'Prices slashed'
I jumped ship from Ubuntu to Mint when they started trying to shove that colossal cluster fuck called 'Unity' onto my desktop.
Presumably it's still legal to drive along whilst reloading a shotgun though?
Best remove the 2 way radios from police cars, ambulances and fire engines too - oh and dont forget paramedics.
..that these things are going to be unmanned and that most commercial vessels do in fact have a crew of fleshy living organisms on-board I think it would probably be fairly wise to get the hell out of it's way!
Isn't this the 2nd..
..sat of it's ilk to spontaneously go pop? - the 1st was a couple of years back and was intended to monitor CO2.
And to make me even more suspicious it's being investigated by the M.I.B ? (Cue Will Smith).
Well I for one...
..think it's nice to see somebody keeping abreast of their work
What an absolute rip off.
There are 7 inch android tablets aplenty from chinese importers for less than 200 quid - this is just blantant profiteering by Samsung and will most likely tarnish any future android tablets may have.
Try Be's Unlimited package..
£17.88 per month from the unlimited package (and by unlimited they mean the ISP definition and not the dictionary definition).
Been with Be several years now and no problems to report other than the godawful web site redesign.
As a compromise..
..why not display a message stating that there was a problem with either your email address or password to the user and then have the code check the email address against the user database and if it exists email the owner and alert them that the problem was actually the password. That way the legitmate owner of the email address knows if he/she got the password wrong and anybody attempting to guess email addresses still gets no clues.
Vodafone have also borked and bodged the HTC Legend
Vodafone have also recently rolled out a very broken firmware to the HTC Legend based on firmware that even HTC themselves pulled from their own update servers. Plenty of details can be found over on the Vodafone HTC forums.
Whats with the iphone idiots posts?
Ok you have an iPhone and you feel the need to try and use some imaginary bragging rights, but wait lets examine this...
We can legally replace our rom images with one not approved of by your one true god
We can do so without losing a warranty (we may lose a vodafone warranty but not HTC's warranty if we use a genuine HTC rom).
Whichever rom we use we can install whatever software we like - even if not approved by your one true god.
We can do all this for half the price your one true god demanded for his fashion accessory.
We can make calls on our phones whilst holding it in a way not approved of by your one true god - i.e. using our hands!
We dont have to wrap the phone in a 25 quid condom to recieve calls
If you fold the bike and lock the 2 wheels together..
You can steal both wheels by unbolting them, which as a bonus now leaves the rest of the bike free and unchained (the chain is still linking the 2 wheels together)
Just change your identity and relocate - no big deal
Just change your identity and relocate. No big deal!
Take the NHS approach..
Go ahead and inject him and if he complains afterwards start thinking about compensation!
All I can say to that is..
Or not ^
"That's Orlowski screwed, then..."
I dooubt it, I'm fairly sure he would happily put his name to his work!
Did I missread that?
"No one should be executed over any amount of stolen money as far as I'm concerned."
What? Even MP's with outstanding expense claims?
How on earth was this patent ever granted considering the mountain of prior art?
If the patent was granted in 1998, do java applets and even ActiveX not predate it?
Software Patents = Cash Cow ready for the milking!
And if the sensors are faulty..
And if you are lucky enough to have an iphone that has developed a fault and the device has a faulty sensor claiming that you boiled it in a tub of lard whilst subjecting it to gforces equivalent of blasting it into space where exactly does that leave your warranty claim? Would you have to have the sensor examined at your own cost in order to prove that it was faulty?
This may be a stupid question but..
..I shall ask it anyway.
Won't this thing just crush everything it 'fiies' over?
