Never use "HP" and "Palm" in the same sentence together ever again.
The General of the Israeli Hacking Core will drive the hated oppressors back, such as 42-year-old Mrs Smith* who defies our God-blessed state by posting a picture of her cat on Facebook. She will suffer the ultimate punishment and learn that Facebook is only for "our" sort of people.
* Yes, I know Smith probably isn't a Palastinian name. Shut up.
Yup - I just bought a set of those DVDs.
.....wait, did I just funnel even *more* of my money into Lucas' gaping wallet? Goddamn it.
I'll be eternally grateful to the man that made A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. I won't miss the man he became, corrupted by his own self-importance and blind arrogance.
When I was at secondary in the early 90s, other juvenille misanthropes were engaging in this, although the method involved hyper ventilating and use of a couple of pressure points on the skull.
This article also has the whiff of someone being trolled. I've known some pretty hardcore WoW players in my time but not one of them has ever done stuff like that. Next we'll be hearing how sweet little Timmy from the Home Counties whores himself out every evening to pay for Farmville items.
Does it perform better or worse than the hand painted wooden iPad, now available from dodgy car parks everywhere?
I'd have to say a blackhole actually eats like my cat, given how often the wretched creature pesters me for food.
*IF* the price crash happens in the UK as well. A realistic price can do wonders for oversold tech.
The consoles themselves aren't too hard to find but the games themselves, that's serious money, especially if it's still boxed.
"Our customers are leaving us because of the way we treat our employees!"
"They've never had a problem with us giving them low wages and long hours before, why do they care now?"
"It doesn't matter! Unless we can find a way to bring them back to us, we're doomed!"
"Well, we could always try lowering our prices..."
"But where could we make the savings necessary to do that?"
"I know - we can 'recalculate' employee salaries and 'revise' their working hours....."
"I like the way you think."
Preventing Real Online Threats as opposed to fake ones?
If there was a product worth mocking at CES this year, it had to be Razer's Project Fiona with it's deadly serious trailer video - those who have seen it will know what I mean.
For those that haven't, Project Fiona is Razer's attempt at "mobile PC gaming", which in this case consists of a tablet with two Wii-mote lookalikes strapped to its sides. The net result looks hideously unergonomic, in addition to just being hideous.
Nice try Razer but I think I'll stick with my own method of "mobile PC gaming". It's called a laptop. Perhaps you've heard of them.
We don't have our cases dismissed.
"Utterly Useful Mobile App of the Year" - Siri-ously?
We could have BeOS as an operating system!
I'm not a mechanical person, so I don't know how it all works but what's preventing your Wifi from getting a hell of a lot of lag every time someone walks by making a big download on their phone? Especially if you live next to a main road or similar.
Each of those 200,000 odd patents they approved represents a unique and genius idea that could only be thought up by some of the most brilliant minds. Like rounded corners and the idea that a tablet should have a screen on it.
Fuck you, New Zealand Story. Seriously.
Back when I were a nipper, games took anywhere between 5-10 minutes to load from a cassette, complete with horrible screeching noises. Even then, we counted ourselves lucky if we didn't get a Read Error B at the end of it.
Goddamn punk kids, spoiled rotten these days....
Out there, in the vastness of the cosmos, there could be completely new and exciting forms of patent trolling and fanboi flame wars.....
Because what patients *really* need is to see every little thing a doctor has written about their condition, then obsess over the tiniest details. For example, a hearing test shows a slight dip of 20dB at point. The experienced technician knows to write this off as insignificant, the patient on the other hand will trawl through wikipedia and a dozen other internet sites and convince themselves they have Imploding Ear Sydrome.
I agree that a close eye needs to be kept on doctors and other medical professionals, and I say this as one. However, that eye needs to be one that knows what it's looking at.
I never knew that Commodore made a foray into the console market. I know that Amstrad did with the CPC464+ and 6128+ (I even have one of the old GX4000 consoles floating around at home somewhere!). Needless to say, the GX tanked horribly (although the Pluses had a minor modicum of success) - it's just nice to know that COMMODORE USING SCUM (sorry) also made the same mistakes.
I was concerned that when Win Phone made it's grand appearence at Nokia, they would lose innovative and diverse range of design ideas that they had back in the days of Series 60. The Lumia 900 has assuaged my fears by being a completely new and bold reinvention of the phenomenally successful Lumia 800, rather than just being a carbon copy with all the charm and flair of a lump of granite.
If I was going to pick a phone that would probably have a high upload/download, I'd have gone with the Xperia Play. Most of the games for it are in the x00 mB range.
He's really in the shitter now.
He's given himself training for his time inside.
'Twas a really crap attempt at shoplifting....
Back in the days when they made the Series 60 Sendo X, it was a really handy candybar smartphone. I even managed to get they keyboard for it and very briefly, my hands on the Sendo X2. A real shame they disappeared into the gurgler.
"The suggestion that Nokia will sell off their crown jewels to Redmond has been rebuffed before, and even had an impact on the markets last year, but despite the Finns repeated denials, the rumour simply won't go away."
Why does Microsoft need to buy their crown jewels when they have them by the family jewels instead?
Call this a shot in the dark but perhaps the reason there are no pet classes is because *EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER* is effectively a pet class. Let's see what a pet class would be like:
* A main character providing the majority of the role be it tank, support, damage, etc - check.
* An AI controlled companion of some sort - check
* ....who can be controlled by a series of mode settings - check
* ....with a range of activatable abilities that can be set on automatic - check
The reason you don't have a "pet class", as you put it, is because trying to manage 2 separate AI controlled characters simultaneously would be a nightmare, in addition to being grossly overpowered in PVP.
"And thou shalt spread thy seed and receive a bounty and the many hands of the law shall grant it unto him."
This is spoken by someone that's never had the misfortune to go to /b/ or the SA forums.
I wonder how well Amazon will take the news that their Android powered baby is going to be competing head to head with the Googleslab.
It's unlikely that they would ditch Android as an OS for the Kindle Fire 2 but in fantasy land, it could provide a window for WebOS to make a reappearence.
Now there's a blast from the past - the Knight series were, in a very roundabout way, an early precusor of the point and click genre.
A game called FlySpy.
Very, very confusing, especially the part when you're flying around in someone's brain. Had a very good soundtrack though.
He barely gave any credit to David Prowse, the guy who acted as Vader, so what chance does a lowly choreographer have?
It is really sad that I only knew about him and all the great works he did after he died.
It was a very impressive bit of kit for its time, although the projection needed to be clearer and the keypresses needed to be a little more distinct.
If it were integrated into a phone, it would work well. From my perspective, having to lug around yet another bloody mains charger, the hassle with finding drivers and syncing the thing caused it to gather dust rather quickly.
For something called a Lumia, based on these sales I wouldn't be using one to keep grues at bay.
For all those people that clicked "Like" on the website for the Pleasuremax "Leviathon" Personal Vibrator.....
.....the same Monty Mole from Auf Wiedersehn Monty, Monty on the Run and Impossimole?
Nuts to Doom, move over Rainbow Islands, throw thyself off a cliff, Lemmings...
All I want for Christmas is Santa's Xmas Caper.
HP could buy them out, make a pretty decent tablet, price it at a ridiculously high price, whine when no-one buys it, shitcan the whole operation and look surprised when everyone buys it in the ensuing firesale!
I read a few American articles detailing what was going on in the chamber itself, with US Senators twittering gems like "I just want to hurry up and pass this thing so I can go home" and "lol, too technical for me but we'll pass it anyway".
And to echo what others have said above, if SOPA & PROTECT-IP go through, it's not just going to be Americans that screwed, it's going to be *everyone*.
The other side of it is the amount of data games companies are collecting about us. There was a series of recent articles in PC Gamer, Escapist and others (but not el Reg, surprisingly) about EA's Origin system. The EULA specifies that they can collect information from your PC pretty much at will without prior notification If that gets hacked (and there's a pretty good chance it will, given that even Steam got hacked) a lot of info is going to wind up in the wrong hands.
Origin in particular is worrisome as the data collected is shared out to 3rd parties as well. So it's all very well if EA's servers are like Fort Knox but GameAdServersTrololol are the digital equivalent of a hooker's knickers.
I would say "Help, help, I'm being repressed!" but then I'd end up being repressed.
Especially the bit where it changes into a robot and punches you for having an iPod.
Perhaps if we axe the rest of our employees, we might make a more healthy profit next year!
"Star Wars: The Old Republic flies onto UK shelves tomorrow, 15 December."
Actually, I'm pretty sure, according to the heavily marked calander in the kitchen, the pre-booked day off and endless adverts on every gaming site everywhere, that it's the 20th it's released.
