We have a banker to teach us right from wrong when it comes to morally questionable fiscal practices.
Re: If he's an expert...
All this grammar discussion is annoying me. It's making me testy.
Re: Shameful Koolaid Drinker
Exactly this. Nokia can make all kinds of weird and wonderful phones, as their days with Symbian ably demonstrated. Microsoft needs to give Nokia more free reign to do more than just boring black rectangles.
Re: Turn off the camera
Because she vastly overestimated her audience's capacity for sympathy, empathy and a few other fundamentals that separate a normal person from a sociopath.
Re: My heart bleeds
I support your bold statement, Mr Anonymous Coward.
The Internet giveth abuse and the Internet taketh away happiness and self worth.
Re: THIS IS NOT PATENTABLE
It's a neat idea, I'll grant you that but patentable...?
Rush certainly does.
With those mighty and powerful changes to a few lines of text, those trolls will be utterly terrified now and shall run away back to /b/.
Or perhaps not.
Each one is linked to your twitter account and updates include:
* When you take a dump
* Pausing for a piss
* Length of time spent having sex
* When you last laundered them
Give me 160k and I'll put a prototype together. Hint: the prototype will probably be a T68i stuffed down a set of Y-fronts.
"with War of the Worlds' Josh Friedman onboard to write one film"
I know which one he'll direct. It'll be the one with the little blue Naa'vi girl that SCREAMS AND SCREAMS AND KEEPS SCREAMING.
Christ. I can't have been the only one hoping that she'd get eviscerated by the aliens. X_X
The "Wooow" juror comment
I was always lead to believe that when you go to court, you are judged by a jury of your peers. If a tool like that is my "peer", then it's a very damning statement of me as an individual. =/
If someone came up to me in any social situation and said that, I'd run like fuck. Especially if they were actually holding the vibrator at the time.
Re: She has a point
Maybe it's the social circles I'm in but saying "I saw those photos of you on your blog and right now, I'm masturbating over them, while fantastising about inserting a Leviathan industrial strength vibrator in you" is not really considered complimentary for some reason...
She has a point
I wouldn't like it if someone found (the very, very few) photos of me online and then decided to spam me with messages saying how fat and ugly I am. Why is it acceptable just because this person's a woman and a blogger. Sure, bloggers like visitors to their site and comments - that's not the same as you having free licence to be an asshole to them.
In fairness, the music was some of the best stuff about the prequel trilogy. I remember when it was due to come out, I was listening to the music and got very excited about the film.
The plot may be bad. The acting may be bad. With John Williams behind it, the music will be fantastic.
Re: This is about a Soldier under an Oath of Fealty...
Isn't there something in that Oath about a soldier's duty to defend and protect the citizens of his country as well? Or are they not allowed to defend and protect the citizens from their duly elected officials?
A juror is not a detective
People are bored with tablets. World and Dog has one of some sort now and things like "retina displays" aren't enough of a draw to make people shell out £400-500 so they can be the envy of their friends. Tablets need to have something new and revolutionary (projected keyboards, finger gesture recognition...who knows?) in order to be *exciting* again. Samsung and Apple are both stuck in a holding pattern at the moment.
This is horrific
"On the protection of children from information harmful to their health and development"
I know that Russia actively persecutes LGBT folks and I'd be willing to bet that sites that offer guidance, support and above all *understanding* to LGBT folks is going to fall within this category.
Re: From our East Cheam correspondent
Quite a mouthful too...
Re: Fire up the pun-o-tron
A brief but potent charity event.
Spheres today, gone tomorrow.
Very true about Nokia phones. A smart ass friend of mine once quipped that once humanity has wiped itself out with nuclear war, the cockroaches will be calling each other on 5110s and asking what happened.
The problem with Dota players...
...is that they expect you to have played Dota before playing it.
*buys six health potions at start of match*
Someone had way too much fun writing that subtitle.
It's too big a gamble
$549 for a tablet running a relatively unloved operating system with a sword of Damocles hanging over it. If the RT had a Touchpad firesale and the price was slashed in *half*, I would be much more interested. But a Galaxy Note would be more appealing still...
He wrecked a perfectly nice park to faff about on something that looks like a very ugly rocking horse?
Indie teams often have a better idea as to what makes a good game better than mainstream publishers do.
For example, take EA's Syndicate. It had little in common with the original game and was little more than an attempt to cash in on the success of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Now, on Kickstarter, the original team behind Syndicate is making a game called Satellite Reign, which is being touted as a genuine sequel to Syndicate Wars. It looks more like what EA *should* have released than what they *did* release.
Hope it makes its funding goal.
I think it's a splendid idea
If you have enjoyed "Adam Johnson's Curriculum Vitae", why not check out some of these other videos:
"Adam Johnson boning his girlfriend while dressed as Batman"
"Adam Johnson out on the lash on the weekend"
"Adam Johnson's annual EDL meet up"
It's not an unreasonable course of action
"Well, we can either destroy a whole bunch of expensive IT equipment, or we could install Norton AntivIrus on them."
"Pass me the sledgehammer."
Doesn't sound promising
At this rate BB10 is "bedding in" to a bed with an earth mattress and stone headboard.
Old news is not necessarily bad news
"Hey, you remember a few months back that guy mentioned that the government were spying on us?"
"They've just republished the story again. Yawn."
"Well, did anything change as a result of it?"
<goes off to check> "Hey, nothing changed! They were hoping it would all just be forgotten - and we forgot!"
Sometimes old news repeated can serve as a reminder just make sure changes are actually happening.
I applaud folks that are willing to deal with the population crisis...
...by taking a hands on approach. They're truly a cut above.
Designing a perfectly safe computer
The most secure computer is one that doesn't power up and lacks a keyboard, mouse and touchscreen. The hard drive is housed in a cpu tower made of heavily padlocked concrete and it has absolutely no ports anywhere on it. No, not even that one.
Re: I think we're missing a trick here..
Chuck in a good quality emulator and some Atari games and I'd buy one.
Just out of curiosity...
...Remember the vast wads of cash that were earmarked for 95% broadband in 2011 and 2013? Anyone happen to know which trough that lot disappeared into?
Sorry, did I say trough? I meant carefully planned and well thought out Government Spending Plan.
This isn't prison, this is slavery. When you stop and think "even people at Foxconn have better working conditions", something is massively fucked up with the world.
I'm now actually looking at my Lumia 820 now and wondering who the hell made it.
Re: It just costs money
"If it ain't broken you don't fix it."
Bingo. It's the same reason why the computers and processors on deep space probes are frigging ancient by today's standards. The technology may be old and slow but it is *reliable*. Reliable counts for a lot when you're a million miles from Earth or when you're nuts deep in nuclear crap.
This isn't the DM's style
I'm fairly sure the DM would rather that £1,000,000 was used to hire hitmen to murder suspected "paedo scum" before they get to court.
Ummm, hang on a sec
I thought Apple got stroppy about people charging subscriptions and micropayments on stuff bought through the App Store? Has Office 365 found a way around it?
I'm on the fence on this one
It's not nice to see any species being culled but it's sometimes necessary for the ecosystem as a whole. Deer immediately spring to mind as an example.
It might just have been where I was in St John's Ambulance as a kid and therefore read up more on badgers but I'm under no illusions that they are adorable fuzzy wuzzy creatures. They can be vicious little sods - the American badger for example can disembowel a coyote and is capable of even seeing off freaking *bears*. It's European equivalent shouldn't be any less capable, given it's half as large again as its American counterpart.
Re: I've seen the future and it will be
We can only hope. Knowing my luck though, a merger between those two will actually open some kind of interdimensional rift to Hell. -.-
Re: Under UK Law
"Your Honour, the prosecution wishes to submit Exhibit A as evidence against the defendant on child pornography charges."
"But that's just a hard disk that's been set on fire."
"But why would the defendant set fire to it if there *wasn't* sick filthy child porn on it?"
"GUILTY! Lock the little bastard up for life."
