Probably wants to spend more time with his
...an old friend of mine is a fairly senior manager at a well regarded airline. He says no one has a clue what happened and that lines up well with Mr Page's last paragraph.
a new section in the iTunes store specifically dedicated to "Sharing Selfie" apps
This confirms we have long passed peak civilisation and it's all downhill from here.
I'm going to stock up with food and fuel as iPhone-wielding barbarians will be at the gates soon.
As the OED says about petards and hoisting:
Have one’s plans to cause trouble for others backfire on one
Ms Fiveash's article was intended to "cause trouble" for the non-tech media because they got a word wrong only to get a word wrong herself.
It may be the middle of the night here and I may be dyslexic but I don't see a problem with my comment about her use of "worldwide" instead of 'world wide".
The Kiwis say it as "dub dub dub" which is a but faster.
And they didn't call it the "worldwide web" either.
Is that your petard I see being hoisted, Kelly Fiveash?
A star in a reasonably priced jar, no less.
for most of us bandwidth is no longer a problem
Most of who? Feel free to speak for yourself but many of us still don't have that luxury.
I certainly don't regard QANTAS as the worst airline I've flown with
If you'd been fucked about by Qantas as often and as badly as I have then you'd have a different opinion. They are awful.
Qantas is in trouble because it's a shitty airline and the worst I've had the misfortune to fly with (apart from LOT. I once flew with them in the 70s and it was a bit scary.)
As for Indian food, many airlines offer Asian meals as an option and they are always better than the standard fare.
Always destroy the negatives.
By US standards isn't this getting off rather lightly? Given that the alternative is usually anything between a bullet, being "democratised" by an invading US army or even nuked, I think she should be quite pleased.
Who to trust? Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump and some conspiracy theorists or skilled climate scientists? Tough call.
So it's suddeny fun to gratuitously mock someone's sexuality
You couldn't have been more wrong if you tried. Impressive.
It must have been tempting to use the phrase Nancy boy in this article.
Really? The Pornzilla project is over ten years old.
I'd love to give these people an immersive experience in a bath of acid.
Duracells and a different name. Maybe something that doesn't sound like it was picked from an Anne Summers' catalogue.
Now with available with added NSA industrial espionage.
That screenshot rather much looks like an installation screen
Yup, that graphic of the world in the last image looks like a dead ringer for the time zone selection dialogue in an openSUSE installation.
Anyone know if it's used in other distros?
the pub reaction!
Is he talking about the time he left his kid behind in a pub and everyone was horrified?
Does this mean my boiler will now target me with ads?
No but the NSA will know your thermostat setting.
1. No list of excuses.
Not sure of the veracity of this list but it seems pretty sound:
· Horse, pony or donkey – 77 deaths
· Cow, bull or bovine – 33 deaths
· Dog – 27 deaths
· Kangaroo – 18 deaths
· Bee – 16 deaths
· Shark – 16 deaths
· Snake – 14 deaths
· Crocodile – 9 deaths
· Ostrich or emu – 5 deaths
· Others, including fish, sheep, goats, camels, cats and jellyfish – 39 deaths
social marketing “experts” embarrassed themselves and singer Susan Boyle by coming up with #susanalbumparty to promote the singer’s latest work.
You think that was a mistake? It's a very effective piece of marketing: At the end of 2013 it's still getting media coverage.
The supporters of unfettered state surveillance are busy with the downvote button today.
I often wonder, and especially today, what Alan Turing would have thought of all this. His legacy his been flushed down the toilet of history by those that followed him.
That would be hard work and need lots of form filling.
They could make a start by having QEII make a public apology to all those that were criminalised by this law. Next would be the people that suffered from shellshock and were shot for being cowards.
The Queen's Xmas speech would be a good venue for it.
Now what about an apology and pardon for all the others?
...I'd start with blocking the really dangerous sites like the Vatican or the White House. These places actively target vulnerable kids with priest and missiles.
I was just trying to be witty. Comparing apples and oranges is always futile.
looking aeroplane. Ever.
Google Glass: As worn by massive winkers.
Making money by giving stuff away. How do they sleep at night?
Some premises that were on the FTTP list will be getting wireless instead. Not really a prediction as such. This is what an NBN rep told our local council.
So how many people are queuing up to order back issues? Asking for a friend -------------->
There are two spectacular cyclones in the Indian ocean right now.
Edit: That's the first time I've been able to "see" down the eye of a cyclone. Astounding stuff.
no a Slippery Slope
It's worse. It's a slippery cliff.
I really don't see what the big fuss is about
...to read some time in the 22nd century when Australian DAB covers more than 1% of the nation with better than 80kb/s.

Life is SO much better...when you don't have any [persistent] system cookies at ALL
I can do all of that and more with CookieSafe and without even opening Firefox's options dialogue.
Give CookieSafe a whirl. You can set up a whitelist for the handful of cookies you need and block the rest.
I'm sure there are others but this one works for me.
