That would incorrectly imply that the Mail is capable of not looking stupid.
Re: It needs two more legs and some big fangs
Well, if you wanted to go with a scorpion vibe, you could go with a couple of the "Jaws of Life" cutting tools fire services use. I'm open to suggestions on what to do with the tail, although part of me keeps saying "minigun" over and over for some reason.
Assuming this thing gets built
I'd *really* like to see Kickstarter try and take their 10% off these guys.
Re: AS GREEDY AS APPLE
Gosh. Apple claiming something is unethical.
As for me, this trial has done more to perusade me that my next phone should be a Nokia more than any amount of Microsoft marketing.
Screw Apple and Samsung. I'm sick of this shit.
That's an awfully big arse.
Re: The Frankie Boyle angle
Fixing the problems of the world's socio-economic policies is not something easily achievable. Fixing a troll who clearly bit off more than he could chew is easily achievable.
We change the things we can.
Re: Tasteless Jokes
I found those jokes to be in poor form. I'm afraid they hit something of a bum note with me.
Please refrain from using radar in Antarctica
It annoys the shoggoths that live in the valley. =(
...does anyone else have the urge to lock the respective heads of Apple and Samsung in some dark, forgotten dungeon somewhere and refuse to let them out until they stop behaving like spoilt children?
The heads needn't necessarily be still attached to the bodies.
If your next computer is blood red, how do you expect it to remain undetected while conducting covert aerial bombing raids?
*My* computer on the other hand is a perfectly sensible black colour and is so stealthy I have trouble finding the bloody thing at times.
Re: Cause of Death?
Gauntlet was fun.
The youth of today have no understanding about how their bodies work.
It's a bloody Fortitude save, not a STAM roll. Jesus.
A Sony executive was quoted as saying "We're really going back to our old school roots with this new design. We're even restoring Other OS and PS2 backwards compatability," before collapsing on the floor in a heap of laughter.
Re: "typical of a cetacean"
A good catch AC and as always I thank the El Reg Comment Crew for pointing out a minor technicality as the basis for tossing an entire argument out of the window.
The point I was trying to make is that both whales and sharks undergo underwater docking procedures when they mate. But hey, when the mermaids finally take over the world, I'll be happy to inform them that you're ok with just wanking yourself into the open ocean while the rest of us work on the building of mermaid-human hybrids.
Re: Oh dear, Nokia
Wait, wait, wait....Nokia had a Plan A?
Re: "typical of a cetacean"
A few moments thought would suggest that given the upper half of a mermaid is mammalian (often abundantly so), it makes sense that the lower half should share mammalian traits as well. So instead of all that nonsense of squirting a cloud of eggs out, the lower half of a mermaid would share traits with a whale or possibly a shark.
So what I'm saying is that you still get to hide the pink sea snake under the kelpy forest.
Re: The truth about MERMAIDS:
The truth is mermaids are not found in American waters but instead near Japan. A witness to a battle between Cthulhu and the Amazonian Mermaids gave Japan its flourishing tentacle porn industry.
Seriously, let me know how that plays out.
The man is a fool
$150,000 for some extremely dull nudie pictures when the web has a plethora of very high-quality wrist exercisers for a fraction of the cost.
Not that I know anything about that, being a respectable gentleman.
An extremely pessimistic article this
So what you're saying is that Google and Microsoft will never be able to catch up with the iPad and therefore should just let Apple have free reign in the tablet market?
You say that the reason the Kindle and iPad are successful is because of their content market - a point I agree with. But content does not grow on trees - device first, then the content grows. Expecting a device to launch an iPad-equivalent amount of content available is foolishness.
"Why certainly officer, I'll be only too pleased this little diplomatic safe haven I have at the moment and put myself in British custody because your legal process has really been going in my favour lately."
Re: There will be trouble
The problem is, when people "think of the children", they don't [i]actually[/i] think of the children, they just think about how they can avoid awkward conversations with them. And then bad shit like this happens.
ACs - I have a lot of LGBT friends I speak to online in a very close community and I think I can say that if it hadn't been for that community and the access they have to it, a lot of them would have followed a similar path.

Re: Three things
Especially if Bob doesn't have much incentive to explain it properly and lot of incentive to watch the system go titsup.
You know, this sort of input is usually reserved for the El Reg SPB.
We've conquered space, next stop the ocean! Maybe we could have a Pi powered mini sub exploring an ocean trench - wouldn't that be awesome? =D
Seriously, help me out here
This isn't a troll post, I am genuinely puzzled.
Why on earth would anyone by an Ultrabook? They seem to be extremely expensive but offer little or no more performance than a standard laptop. Does the thinness really justify such a whopping great mark up in price? Or am I missing something here?
Re: @Mad Mike
"I thought the idea of extradition was for serious offences only."
Making money in Hollywood is srs bsns.
It's the sequel to Tim Schafer's legendary platformer - SET IN SPACE!
I just saw this on another news site:
"The boss of Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest has told Sky News that senior management will face "proper accountability" over the computer chaos when deciding on bonuses."
When popped into Google Translate (Bullshit -> English):
"We're only going to award ourselves a 1 million pound bonus instead of the 2 million we originally planned. The poor shmucks we've been running ragged with overtime this past week will receive fuck all and we'd really like our ex-IT staff to stop laughing at us now please."
The man is grinding my gears now
My mind is finding it harder and harder to associate "Julian Assange (TM)" with "Wikileaks" and easier to associate him with the term "bail jumping, narcissistic publicity whore".
The US don't need to go to any lengths to kill the credibility of Wikileaks, sadly. Julian Asshole is doing a superlative job himself.
You must meet the most interesting sources when you work for El Reg.
Re: Does it help?
Well, if we're trying to get rid of useless weight, we could probably start with the guys that wrote the paper.
Re: How does that work, exactly?
I've just watched the trailer and Lara's various reactions, not just in that scene, which frankly was too quick for me to make out clearly what was going on but overall, she does seem to have been reduced to a spineless wimp that complains all the time. What happened to the Lara that offered naff James Bond like quips before blasting someone in the face?
