Did they probe Scartlett Johansson as well?

....that this is why the El Reg hacks don't have bio pages, because it would just turn into an endless war to see who could write the most inflammatory and snarky page.
Would make for great entertainment though.....
Yeah, I heard about this from another forum. It's fucking disgraceful that one of the most iconic characters of film history hasn't been rewarded for his efforts.
Unofrtunately, while the reviewer is not a Star Wars obsessive, a lot of the people that are going to be interested in the boxset *are* and what the review misses is that a lot of key scenes have been altered.
The one that has turned into an internet meme is the fact that now Vader pointlessly shouts "Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo" before tossing Emperor Palaptine down the well, the unnecessary scene in A New Hope featuring an appalling CGI Jabba confronting Han in Mos Eisley, the removal of the "yub-nub" song from Return of the Jedi, placing Hayden Christainsen in the line up at the end of Return of the Jedi, the whole "Han shot first" thing.....the list goes on.
"I have altered the Original Trilogy. Pray I don't alter it any further." - George Lucas.
I wouldn't describe HP's foray into the ring as being the equivalent of "cannon fodder".
A more suitable metaphor might be a kamikazi pilot. The flight starts out normally enough, before taking a sharp nosedive with a gibbering madman at the helm before exploding in a spectacular fireball. The damage is fairly minimal and short lived, leaving you with bits of wreckage scattered all over the flight deck.
It does look extremely ugly but it might improve the ergonomics of the d-pad. I find it uncomfortable to use it for too long on my 3DS but fortunately the left stick is still accurate enough for platforming shennanigans like Castlevania.
The scene - A poorly lit bedroom late at night. A frightened child is being tucked into bed by someone who looks far too young to be the child's mother but hey, that's hollywood casting for you.
Child: Mummy, I'm scared. Another kid went missing at school today. Are the monsters getting them?
Mummy: Don't be scared, there's no such thing as monsters.
Child: Ok mummy. Thank you for plugging in my nightlight.
Mummy: (raising a curious plastic object with a plug)....I haven't plugged it in yet....
Mummy and daughter look at each other.
...that one careful push would have been more of a lesson, depending on the position of the hedgehog.
Instead of a whole screen of flashing colour, you now have a single pixel.
I never get to fondle anything nice.
It serves as a really useful proof of concept. If they could up the power transfer a little more, maybe they could use NFC as a means of printing personalised train & aircraft tickets.
But we must now gouge out your eyes as Apple have now patented the iBall as a viewing device.
That nuclear energy has a glowing future ahead of it.
And this folks is why I shouldn't post while a) I'm ill b) I'm half asleep c) WITHOUT READING THE ARTICLE or d) a braindead combo of the above. -.-
I think Svantevid picked up on the connection I was trying to make.
Was he any relation to the Gutenberg that made the first ever printed Bible?
....sourced from in-cider info?
I just had a vision of a greasy student from my local Dixions showing me a "handheld device" while naked.
Pass the mind-bleach please.
"New Scientist notes that there appears to be too little precious metals for the hypothetical bombardment to be a complete explanation."
New Scientist went on to ask for greater amounts of precious metals be sent to their offices for comparison purposes.
I thought the lack of response to "frakk me" was kind of the whole issue.
Why does that sound so familiar, given the context....
Like updating the Motorola Android Phone?
Will these Argos Pads be at firesale price or full fat price?
Probably feels a bit of a plank now.
Might be able to snag a cheap Touchpad for myself next time around.
Samsung has some pretty decent hardware for their phones - a Galaxy with WebOS would be sweet.
....once you get past the verbal marketing diahorrea, it's a laptop then?
...and don't be a stranger in the comments section.
But after reading your post I suddenly had a vision of that scene from The Holy Grail involving ducks, bridges and truly mind bending leaps in logic.
"So because he's a student, he must have a computer...."
Not exactly a ground-breaking story.
.....so I'd appreciate an answer from someone that is. Is it possible that random wireless interference could do the same damage as a directed hack? What are the sort of probabilities involved?
Just asking from a neutral viewpoint.
Lacking prehensile hands, how exactly.......actually, I'm going to abandon this train of thought before it derails and permanently damages the station.
Eye see what you did there.
C'mon, please buy our hopelessly under performing PC business. We'll be your fwiend.....

I handed in my CV at Apple today but they told me they didn't have any Jobs.
I often leave my phones charging over night, so if this thing can help with saving the battery even a little, I'll buy one. At the very least, it might knock a little bit off my phone bill.
IF HeartBeatPresent = True AND BreathingInAndOut = True THEN
Dig me up this f***ing instant
Leave flowers and beer below
Why don't we just arrest all the police, the hacks and the politicians and bung them in the slammer?
Also, what's this stuff about phone hacking?
"This means that by getting through 456 drinks a year on average, many Brits are sailing three sheets to the wind-"
Fixed that for you.
It's a crap and unworthy ending for an OS that deserved better.
Meh. Makes a change from bloody Grues all the time.

Should have gone out to pick up the power converters before your uncle set you chores to do.
That I actually want? What madness is this?
Just imagine if you were someone that bought a webOS tablet within that 5 hour timeframe, thinking of a bright, AppleDroid-free future.
....when Facebook rejected my legally given name as some sort of joke, demanding that I submit my driving licence and passport as proof of ID.
Fortunately I sobered up at the point and realised how close I had come to making a serious mistake.
NASA says there's absolutely nothing to worry about, so why the needlessly scaremongering article? THERE'S POSITIVELY DEFINITELY ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT! *wink wink*

So now you can burn through your 5Gb data limit in minutes rather than hours now?
"The court hoped that the hefty sentences would deter others from writing similar stupid posts on social networks."
We're arresting people for making stupid comments on the internet now? Looks like the police are going to be on overtime with all the trolls.......what the hell........I DIDN'T POST THAT, SOMEONE HACKED MY ACCOUNT! DON'T TASE ME BR <kzzzzzt>
