CICADA: Close-in Covert Autonomous Disposable Aircraft
Julian didn't bother to turn up for the vote on banning letting agents charging fees to tenants. As a member of his constituency who doesn't enjoy coughing up £75 for a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy of a tenancy agreement, I say screw him!
...or a burger.
Presumably Labour and the Conservatives where specifically mentioned because they've actually been in government, or at the head of one.
It's probably the civil service's fault as much as the politicians. I rather suspect they make all the real decisions, no matter what party is in power.
Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?
100mb/s? I'd be happy if the 30mb/s I pay for was stable.
You must not live in the south. Here you'd have to buy at least 400 to get one free.
I guess we need to wait for Google flying cars that fly themselves before these things go mainstream.
On top of what they'll be paying on their bills.
Better to keep them all in one place, so they don't bother the rest of us.
Everyone knows it's a small province of the superstate Oceania.
"Thankyou [...]. However in the future, I would prefer a nondescript briefcase to the sack with a dollar sign on it."
If you chop your own hands off, you're holding it wrong.
I'm confused. If this was a serious article then your rant might be warranted, but I'm pretty sure the gist was:
- Study finds people who binge-watch are sad, lonely and overweight
- Study conducted by Muppet
"The credentials of the authors of the paper ...
... don't automagically negate the observation."
That very much depends on the credentials of the author.
If they had a PhD in sandwich making, would you still take their conclusions seriously?
Now please make it illegal for a website to ask to install its mobile app every time you visit.
It would, presumably, effect loading times. I've seen Assassin's Creed: Unity running on an XBone and the load times are ridiculously long; often they're well over a minute, per cut scene.
Only two of these were less than £200; in fact they were £1 less than £200.
I would like to get better speakers for my TV, so a list of options around £100 would be very useful.
What about all those technologies that came out of war that are now used in civilian life all the time?
Penicillin? Computers? Radar, and microwave ovens as a byproduct?
Of course, there are plenty of technologies that aren't useful for anything other than killing people, but in this case I'm sure there are plenty of civilian applications for big lasers that can burn things as long, safe, distances.
I'm also a VM customer, and for some reason the only junk mail is from VM trying to sell me a service I already receive. Idiots.
It appears to (as I've said, I've just started the trial), and the best I could get on my purchase today was delivery on Thursday.
I've just started my 1-month trial of Amazon Prime. At best, I'll be getting the first class post option for free.
At least I'm not actually paying for the service I'm not receiving.
An article like this is always nice from time to time. The free AV tools people used to suggest are now bloated pieces of junk (I'm looking at you AVG), so pointing out the alternatives to those who haven't been following the trends is always helpful.
Lots of universities are adopting an open access policy though, even for industry-funded projects.
"Sometime before the heat-death of the universe"
"Hey you! Beardo! Mine's a latte!"
The economy will have collapsed, so you'll be lucky if it's Nescafe - *shudder* - Original.
Detroit isn't finished in the same way that Carthage is finished.
Not really. It's news about an area of the city getting a revamp. The changes to the road are just to allow that revamp.
YEAH! Why would you, when you can spend even more money buying a phone that'll just leak your selfies all over the internet?
Just as long as that tax doesn't come from wages/salaries. Those are taxed enough as it is, thank you very much.
Oh my how they'll complain though.
The "unfinished PhD" should not even have been mentioned.
An unfinished PhD is no PhD at all. If you haven't had your viva, then your thesis hasn't been defended and it could be complete tripe.
"4:3 aspect ratio makes video playing crap, why have all those lovely pixels and waste a good chunk of them when you're using the damn thing?"
Unless you're trying to do work on it, in which case it's ideal.
The issue with the Roku is very suspicious, since it's on the US version but not the UK one where BSkyB have a stake. In the case of this Google doo-dar, it's more likely to be Amazon's fault.
...unless you already own a Roko or similar, in which case that revolution came and went.
I was kind of interested in this until I realised Amazon aren't putting Prime on it (for now). That's currently the only shortcoming of the Roku (in the UK), as either Amazon are withholding Prime or BSkyB are using their shares in Roku to block it.
Mind you, there's now an Amazon Prime Android app, so maybe it'll find its way to Google's puck.
They say it's King's Cross, but in the movies they used St. Pancras.
...neither of which look much like they are described.
It's a little bit unique.
"Make them eat English breakfasts 3 times a day"
I thought you wanted to punish them.
You're forgetting screens and TVs, which are quite common, priced well and of good quality. Otherwise your point stands.
That's it, you just made the list.
I hate the reverse too. I can't stand watching a lot of long heads talking.
OK, so they're playing catchup, but the important thing is START MENU!
As long as the upgrade from Win8 isn't too pricey this might even be a day-one purchase for the wife's laptop.
Unless there's a very good reason, my Win7 machine can stay as it is. I'll probably wait to see what impact it has on games anyway, particularly older ones.
Don't forget the Met Office. He hates them too.
"[Microsoft] may drop the attempt to create a unified experience across both architectures."
We can only hope!
If Windows 9 undoes some of the horrible UI mistakes MS has made I, will go out and buy it to replace Win 8 on my wife's laptop. I might even be tempted to put it on my own machine.
To what the hell are you referring?
What innocent American citizen? What drone strike?
Underpants? No. A tea cosy however...
M&S?!? Try just going to your local butcher's shop.
Of course, if you consider a butcher's choice pork and apple sausage to be anything less than a piece of heaven in piggy form, then I'm afraid you just don't know what good food is.
Chris W, you're buying the wrong British sausages. When Yank sausages are the right kind they can be very good, since they're rather like German sausages. Those sausage meat patties are rubbish though.
