'twas the bite before Christmas and all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, because they'd all been bitten by deadly spiders...
Serve them False Morel mushrooms with the turkey and make sure they're a little underdone. Forms a similar fuel when they react with stomach acid. Just make sure they're not smokers.
Sounded really promising
Until I read it had a Bay Trail processor. I've been burned before on a Transformer with a Bay at the helm.
Re: "Doubtless cynical readers will claim this discovery is purely coincidental"
It might have been that newly discovered species of pygmy cuttlefish, which was shown to have a venom as lethal as the blue-ringed octopus. After biting, it then camoflagues its skin, as cuttlefish do, to look like a false widow in the bottom of a trash can.
It serves as a perfect metaphor for the nature of political discussion on the internet and humankind. We are all, on some level, an exploding whale.
Also hoping El Reg gets a review one...
At that price and for those specs, I'm definitely intrigued. Especially if the get a keyboard backing for it...
...and my personal favourite
Substituting physical strength for say, compassion, empathy or mercy. Being strong doesn't mean you aren't an asshole.
Besides, the extra wait means more time for developers to polish the games for it. Net result - we win.

Re: Well that settles that for me!
I already have a console that's upgradeable, lets me run the games I want and can be customized.
I call it my PC. <3
I know right?
Someone should contact the makers of Civilization V and tell them they missed a world wonder from the latest expansion pack - some guy's garage.
Maybe it can give a bonus to Faith generation.
Psychology is a nice, easy subject
...because helping someone come to terms with being sexually abused, talking someone out of suicide or handling bipolar patients is really easy...right?
Maybe digital listening is falling because we're in the middle of a ball-breaking recession and DAB radios cost a magnitude more than a cheap FM radio?
That said, my only experience of Digital radio was the old Psion Wavefinder. Way ahead of it's time but cool in a geeky way.
All new Nokia tablet....=]
...with Windows RT. =[
You raised my hopes and dashed them quite expertly. Bravo, sir!
Re: Is a bad or a good thing ...
Having just watched "Threads", this particular 30 year old totally gets it. Mum was very keen on films like that, like When The Wind Blows and so on. There is absolutely nothing cool about nuclear war.

Re: Jesus Christ
Meh, I don't have any issue with it myself. If they're in front of the Apple store and both staff and fanbois are having fun, what's the harm? I imagine there's quite a few regulars that meet up and talk at these queue gatherings.
Besides, if someone is obsessive enough to queue outside a shop for four days for a phone, wouldn't it be better to know where they are?
...of the problem with the Google G1 when it first came out. Texting the word "reset" did exactly what it said, much to the ire of my G1 owning friend. =3
Re: It's perfect
You are right - I did make a sweeping generalisation and included people in it I did not intend to. My experience of Yahoo has largely been the comments section of the news articles, which has not left me with the best of impressions.
I think I've found just the buyer!
Name of Moreau, wonderful chap, apparently works as a doctor...
Re: "Officers believe the man ... was under the influence of drugs or alcohol."
Not necessarily obvious, he potentially could have been having some psychotic episode brought on by mental illness. I wouldn't really say a cop is the best judge of mental health issues.
Man has new girlfriend
News at elev- oh wait.
Does it actually matter?
They collared the guy before knowing anything about what he was carrying or how well protected it was. 9 hours being interrogated by spooks was going to cough a password either way, whether it had been written down or not.
If it had been written down and the password was immediately available, why the need to hold him for 9 hours?
Re: Two Grand Canyons?
According to National Park Statistics, the volume of the Grand Canyon is 4.17 trillion cubic metres. Wikipedia pegs the volume of an Olympic swimming pool at 2500 cubic metres...
1,668,000,000 Olympic swimming pools.
Re: The prisoners are going to like him/her
You know what? You win. I can't do this anymore.
Re: The prisoners are going to like him/her
Yes, because all transwomen are straight and they *really* enjoy being violently raped, right?
You know, I keep trying to tell myself that most folks respect transgender rights, especially a transwoman that has given up a large part of her life to expose war crimes covered up by a powerful and despotic government. What does she get?
Transphobia and rape jokes. Stay classy, AC.
Sir, I must take exception to your statement
It's not really a Windows RT band wagon, more of an out of control train barreling off a cliff.
The clip on backing idea sounds really neat, especially if they did one with a keyboard on it. It's really cool to see some some genuinely new ideas at last.
"She discusses a "well-rounded childhood", her love of coding and how she is "blind to gender"."
Her blindness to gender might explain why the Yahoo comments section is a physically sickening mire of homophobia, transphobia and casual sexism.
Re: Even better
"When you send a copy of a copy does that mean that my eyeballs and brain neurons had their data retention stream removed, as well?"
A government that lobotomises is a government that cares. <3
Two IT companies reaching a sensible agreement and moving on instead of suing each other into oblivion?
I'm so confused. This isn't how tech companies operate.
Re: Breanna Manning ??
Breanna Manning is the name Private Manning identifies with according to Zinnia Jones, the transwoman that was called to the trial. I can't provide a link as some of her stuff is NSFW but when the subject of Private Manning's dysphoria was raised, Breanna Manning was one of the names the former Bradley Manning was potentially choosing for her female side. If you do a Google search for Zinnia Jones Bradley Manning, you'll find a number of articles Zinnia Jones wrote for FreeThoughtBlogs and The Huffington Post, amongst others. She was interviewed by Al-Jazera, if I recall correctly too.
This is a very dark time
For the longest time, I really thought that Julian Assange was a jumped up little shit looking to avoid questioning for rape charges back in Sweden. To be fair, the man *is* a ghastly little toad...
Having just read about that Guardian journalist's boyfriend that got held for 9 hours for absolutely no frigging reason, does kind of highlight the fact the US are turning into bigger monsters than Al-Qaeda. Breanna Manning is going spend the rest of her life locked in a cell while her dysphoria, depression and other mental issues eat her alive. Edward Snowden is effectively exiled and now has the choice of living under a barbaric Russian regime or getting a second helping of the "justice" that was dished out to private Manning. Yes, Julian Assange is a narcissistic prick but he's absolutely right to be afraid.
I think the problem with jetpacks is that people immediately try to see them as a replacement for a plane or a car, rather than on their own merits.Just imagine if you had a few of these placed in mountainous areas or along cliff walk areas. You'd be able to reach someone more quickly than with a helicopter or plane.
Re: Pumping the price, are they?
Well, I know a few eBay resellers that are going to have a very merry Christmas with this.
It's not just Aspergers
The guy has also been struggling with gender dysphoria, according to a well known transgender-related blog. The woman that runs the blog was actually called to the court as she'd had previous contact with Manning when he was still trying to sort out his (or her) gender identity.
I'm currently helping a much loved friend through her own gender struggles and it's hard enough when she's at her own home in contact with her friends. I can't even imagine how nightmarish it must be for Bradley Manning.
AOL is still alive
They're just going through a rough patch.
Even from the grave, the ghostly hand of Jobs moves us all, to paraphase a line in Dance of Dragons. The people that have read it may also draw parallels between the character the book mentions and Steve Jobs.
We have a banker to teach us right from wrong when it comes to morally questionable fiscal practices.
