Re: Model M
Cherry switches may well be mechanical, but they're shitty plastic bendy mechanical — not the glorious buckling spring.
"Fundamental questions remain about what a virtual currency actually is"
All currency is virtual.
Of course it can't happen overnight...
"night" of course being "when the sun is behind that big rock".
What's a "Yahoo!"?
The banned May 2013 version, which was still working earlier this week, is now kaput.
Google probably wanted to revoke the banned version's key, thinking that now there will be less bad PR because of an adequate replacement — but silly Microsoft reused the key in the new version.
"Don't be evil"
If they really subscribed to that sentiment, Google would create a Gmail app for WP8.
His plea bargains, based on that rap sheet
add up to a total maximum of 20 years.
Re: Perhaps it's just me
No, you'll just get Tom Cruise abseiling in through the air vent.
Surely this is as simple as not delivering these messages to any handsets
Just put a filter on the exchanges, job's a good'un. Owait, femtocells.
Get over yourself, find a sense of humour, and realise that words on a screen really aren't worth all this fuss.
The more I think about it,
the more I believe it would be a good idea for Mozilla and Microsoft to team up and go to war against Apple and Google.
Still have IE and Firefox separate, but have Microsoft's financial muscle behind a friendly open-source organisation and switch IE's rendering engine to Gecko from Trident. It'll take that sort of opposition to prevent Webkit from Borg-ing the entire web.
Re: This tiny vessel
You, sir, get an upvote.
Vertical integration, Lemon!
The American corporate dream.
"If this is avoided"
So they've done the easy bit of identifying the suboptimal stage of the process, but don't have an alternate suggestion?
I can't help but think
they'd never get away with that sort of thing on this side of the pond.
Windows Mobile, eh?
Researcher couldn't afford a Lumia?
"Bring that all-Earth title to the red, white, and blue. —
— Oh, wait – those are the colors of Russia's flag, as well."
One could argue that the Lunokhod 2 record flies under a Red & Gold flag, comrade!
These geology stories rock!
Re: Good Job USA!
It's... not the US's sole property.
Re: running down the corridors screaming
I don't think there would be any truth in reports of running in the ISS' corridors.
"The experiment would also help investigate whether gravity has any affect on entanglement between a photon on Earth and on in orbit." [sic]
Gravity on the ISS is almost identical to gravity at sea level. They're just constantly falling so things *appear* weightless.
Re: There is a helluva lot of difference
Actually, you're right. As soon as they start decelerating at the other end, they'll get a column of exhaust catching up, and smashing into them!
Probably best to pack some small hydrazine thrusters to step to the right and let it all fly past.
Is that like the almost-OS 'Vista'?

Notepad++ also, via Ctrl+Click
Re: most of this stuff is old
Inexplicably omitted from the article, here's the poll for your convenience
"Sales of 4.4 Lumia units"
Awww, they didn't even manage to sell 5! (Having said that, I'm getting a 920 once the price has dropped a bit).
Surely if Java is running on your server
Then it's already useless anyway?
Logged in just to downvote that. Although, good things to say about Apple must be few and far between if you had to reach for "They still have USB host sockets on Macbooks!!!1!1".
You might get lucky,
And find it in pagefile.sys (or an expired hiberfil.sys), even if they disable Hibernation and pull the cord out when alerted.
Surely it makes the most sense to go to Richard Branson, as he actually does have a number of enterprises under a single umbrella name. If that's not the most appropriate use for a gTLD then I don't know what is.
Re: Not sure there is much point in a Quantum Kilogram
Once we have a recipe we can bake a new one every week, and your greengrocer's scales would be calibrated using weights, that were themselves calibrated against whatever the freshest quantum one was at the time.
Re: Must be skiddie work.
That's exactly what they want you to think.
Promotional consideration furnished by Sarif Industries
Now where's my Neuropazine?
It's almost like they're morons who don't want the extra revenue for clicking 'release' on an app that already exists.
"It will of course be only available to those with Siri-enabled phones - iPhone 4S and 5."
And of course it will never get any updates, meaning that only two of the features will ever work properly, you'll be forced to choose whether to upgrade your iOS or keep it compatible with your car, and it will never work at all with iPhone 6+.
Embedding tech in cars is incredibly short-sighted. Surely the industry would make more money (by selling far more of the option kits) by standardising on a set of steering-wheel multifunction buttons and a little 2-line display, offloading the actual functionality to any handset? Where's the Bluetooth profile for that?
Is there any Titanium up there?
I can see the Aircraft, Rolling Stock, and Automobile industries switching all construction over to Titanium given enough of a supply - which would keep prices at a decent level even with gigatonnes of the stuff.
