And when he's on dialysis later in life, he can tweet it from his iPhone and use his iPad to renew his 10 different types of medication online!
"[The UHS-1 interface] allows consumers to enjoy high-quality images and video playback directly from the memory cards."
So where the fuck have I been watching stuff stored on my memory cards before?!
Much to my shame, I admit using Yahoo for a quick view of the days headlines and it's absolutely repulsive. The articles lack spell checking, have never seen an editor of any sort and the comments section seems to have been taken over by Neo-Nazis all hellbent on out-trolling each other.
I need a new news website. -.-
Re: Interference - @Mage
I'm afraid I'm with the others on this - you need to link documents and research to back up your claims otherwise you'll have a hard time convincing people.
If you're looking for a quote of the week
Then this is it:
"The wider problem with patents is – and it's a problem the software industry as a whole faces, open or closed, is that there are a lot of crappy patents out there,"
They deserve everything they get after those Michael Bay monstrosities. The animated Transformers Movie with the voices of Orson Wells, Leonard Nimoy and Eric Idle is the only one as far as I'm concerned.
This was the first thought in my mind as well...
Maybe we could turn into a drinking game. Every time you see something that's potentially patentable, you take a swig of your favourite tipple.
" Apple's proposal, we're told, has the nano-SIM the same length as a micro-SIM is wide, encouraging the user to jam the wrong SIM into the slot."
Patent Pending: Case marking showing where to insert SIM card. *drinks*
"The addition of a loading tray, as proposed by Apple..."
Patent Pending: Grav sled SIM card insterion method. *drinks*
I forsee myself getting quite drunk after reading a Samsung or Apple article.
They haven't killed the Touchpad
After all, HP is TOTALLY COMMITED to the future of WebOS.
It is dark.

Oh, if we're looking for worst films ever
I would like to put forward my two nominations:
Never Been Kissed starring Drew Barrymore. I'm not overly keen on romantic films at the best of times but this was the most god-awful and unfunny piece of crap I have ever seen.
Alternatively, M Night Shyalaman's entire body of work. Sixth Sense was utterly predictable and Haley Joel Osmont got on my tits, Unbreakable....well it was ok I guess. The Village dragged on without going anywhere and don't even get me started on The Happening.
This could be a chance for Nokia to claw back some market presence. Part of the reason that Android tablets haven't taken over iPads (and please, please, let's not go down this route until after I've finished speaking) is because some of the Android names like Lenevo, Asus and HTC are not as well known amongst the less tech savy older generation. "Nokia", however, is a name that still carries weight with them, despite their recent horrific attempts at making phones.
IF Nokia can make the tablet easy to use and IF they can reach this market, then it could be the lifebelt Nokia needs in an Apple flavoured sea populated with Android sharks.
A glimpse of the future
Out of the radioactive holocaust, as civilisation freezes under a nuclear winter, vault dwellers will ponder the meaning of the words that led to mankind's demise.
You know something?
I actually hope the Flying Spaghetti Monster is real. I want to see it flying towards Earth as scientists and priests sit there weeping into their textbooks and prayer books. As the colossal meatballs roll across continents and oceans turn into tomato sauce, I will laugh hysterically, comforted by the fact that everything the human race knew and believed was utterly ridiculous and pointless.
Reading through that pastebin dump
It seems to me that Virus is definitely the smarter one of the pair where as Sabu sounds like someone who's completely in love with himself.
What happened to the "Virus" guy? Did he end up getting collared as well?
Re: The problem with Peter...
I miss Bullfrog. So many great games.
Black and White demonstrated quite neatly the problem with Peter's brain.
The building settlements, enouraging believers and hurling deific magic around was great fun. Having a creature that you could train and develop was also fun. Using gestures to cast magic - again, great fun.
Trying to stop your creature from eating your village while at the same time trying to cast a spell to protect your villagers was an exercise in mouse-devouring frustration. And don't even get me started on the Fable series. -.-
Although that said, I do actually have a copy of Fable 3 signed by Peter Molyneaux for some reason.
Yeah, very funny, now where's the real screenshots from WIn 8?
Re: Hypothetically speaking...
Even if the odds of it hitting are remote, it could be a good opportunity to use it as a "practice run" for when the inevitable happens and we do get a rock that could be a problem.
You do a great disservice here. Leeches have a useful place in modern medicine. I've still yet to find a use for a patent lawyer beyond target practice.
I like the new scene in Last Crusade
Where the guy drinks from the fake chalice and screams "NOOOOOOOOOO!" as his face melts off.
Because I was to dumb to understand that having your face melt off is a bad thing.
Re: Re: Zero gravity sex-suites?
Would there be a problem with....fluids?
Although the idea of zero-G breasts sounds pretty cool.
As ideas go, this actually makes a lot of sense, assuming a sensible pricing strategy. If the "pad" is the same price as a normal one then it's going to tank the whole idea really.
Of course, if you get a call while the phone is inside the tablet it could get interesting.

I'm more curious to know
Why he was there in the first place and which MP was keeping him topped up with well-kept ale.
.....actually, why would an MP be buying our beloved editor drinks....?
Is 70 Grays the number of squirrels or the amount of radiation?

Re: "hiding behind the abuse of children to justify a bill that is massively unpopular"
Wow, it's too bad those two fuckwits pushing SOPA through congress didn't think of this.
"But your honour, we have to protect our sweet and innocent children from the EVIL PREDATORY youtube video uploaders!!!!"
It's quite understandable.
Someone accidentally went through the Apple library index, accidentally clicked on Whitney Houston, accidentally clicked on the set price field, accidentally deleted the old price, accidentally typed in a higher price and then accidentally clicked on the "Submit" button.
Clumsy people in the music industry.
Is there any chance of a series of Friday afternoon articles detailing the various alternative methods of IT hardware disposal? Because if you are, I have an old Powerbook that needs taking around the back of the shed. Mind you, the aluminium casing might be a bit tough....
I can't imagine it would make for riveting reading...

I can totally see Ronnald Emerich directing this film
Probably a snappy title, i dunno "Tectonic" or something.
A CGI budget that comprises 99% of the film
A nice tag line like "When continents start getting frisky, pray that you're on top."
And maybe chuck in an annoying kid somewhere and a Feel-Good-Family-Message.
You actually thought HP was a business instead of a money pit?
You might even say
...she's a little cold towards him, or possibly even frigid.
Nope, too easy
I was going to make a rather pertinant remark about heavy drilling being needed but decided it would be inappropriate.
Don't forget you need a Macbook Air and iPhone 4 to use that with!
