I have a hard time believing
that tiny shrimp pose a real threat to huge Wales.
don't like 2 O's.
The only reason that I can think of that this would be less likely to happen on WinMo is down to market share.
"This makes kids aware of the McDonald's brand at a vulnerable age"
... so the big scary clown, massive TV campaigns and huge signs proclaiming "Fun Place" aren't getting the job done?
Good luck with that...
Doubt your little island will be able to come up with China's asking price.
It isn't just tech...
government should stay the hell out all industries. For example, consider how much farther along banking could be if it were free of big brother's intervention.
That's all well and good for you Brits and euros
but CDMA is the protocol of choice in those markets where NFC and cellular have the longest history together. The GSMA is not the appropriate body to promulgate global standards for NFC.
Funny that the father is unnamed
It's probably something like "Betamax".
WBC and Anonymous should settle their differences
with a battle to the death. I hope they both win.
isn't the only one at HP to demonstrate poor judgement.
Why would you go to all the trouble
of building this, only to fill it with crap beer?
Does this surprise anyone
Isn't the inherient gullibility of iPhone users self-evident?
Where else would such a team play
but Glandford Park? Also 'bout time they got themselves a Brazilian.
Who are you talking about?
In this case the term "miscreants" is applicable to both hackers and hacked.
They've chosen the wrong band member...
to promote a hydrogen-powered vehicle. Should've gone with former drummer Peter "James" Bond (RIP).
Flying Cars Are Inherently Green
even if they spew greenhouse gasses. More flying cars = more accidental deaths = fewer people = less emissions. I say bring 'em on and give 'em away for free. Those of us who choose not to use them will pray we're not hit by one falling out of the sky.
I was pretty impressed with Tell Me's application
when I used it prior to the Microsoft acquisition. The speech recognition functions as well as any I've used, far superior to most of the call center IVRs we're all too familiar with. In response to a query for a specific business it delivered a menu offering 1) click to call 2)map to location and, if I remember correctly 3) driving directions. I found it very useful when en route to an unfamiliar location, not wanting to be distracted by triple tapping on a feature phone. A niche product, perhaps, but certainly one with a broad potential user base.
The only beef I've got is with MSFT's presenter who says that voice will be "the" way we search on mobile. I don't believe that any more than I believed the MSFT talking head @ CTIA who said that Windows Mobile will be "the" mobile OS standard.
Hey, we all have our dumb@sses. Who can forget this feller?http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/06/12/youtube_boy_racer/
How about this guy? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4170083.stm
I see a few people who are so worked up about the good ol' US of A that they're using this story to bash all of us. I've got a message for those folks -
You nuts better loosen up, or you'll get yours!
A few well-placed payments
to Chinese officials could have left RBN free to disseminate the Internet equivalent of lead and date rape drug laden toys. Suprising that someone calling themselves a "Business Network" wasn't aware of how to conduct business in the country next door.
I'm another lefty who waves with his right. If you look closely, Reg, I'm waving at you right now...
Cut the cord a year ago...
...when our telecom folks assign my desk phone number to two people. Now use only my mobile and have absolutely no regrets. Only one voicemail box to check and calls reach me anywhere, without having to hassle with integration to our PBX.
A characteristically Italian approach...
stylish, but ultimately disfunctional.
Commence flaming now.
Don't need the robot butler...
Just give me my flying car already. With the time that will save, I can vacuum my own floors and mix my own drinks although not necessarily in that order.
This sounds like a threat...
"I don't want to quit modelling until I find that black models get equal prominence and recognition by the world media and information instruments"
Of course, she is the acknowledged expert in the use an information instrument to garner attention.
...someone had to say it.
I'd prefer to hang out with the guy who participates in this conversation...
"Hi! I'm Plenty."
"I'm sure you are."
"Named for your father, no doubt."
That joyrider surely had egg on his face.
Austin, you'd better hope
that Buzz Aldrin doesn't read this. Videos of him kicking your @ss will soon be all over YouTube.
Simon Travaglia, are you paying attention?
Please, please, please be inspired hire Rufus for a short stint (at least). Imagine what good use the BOFH and PFY could put him to. Rufus could help shake out the cobwebs and help the spirit of your tales return to those exuberant pre-Register days.
I'm not sure he's drunk
It looks to me like he's doing a very passable Jerry Lewis impression. We hear he's huge in France.
Perhaps Google should eat its own dogfood
and search on the phrase, "skilled tech workers in who will accept starvation wages and live in a cardboard box at the curb in Mountain View." Seriously, everyone and their brother is lining up to work for these guys. Surely many of them are US citizens with the requisite skills. I think george and Morely Dotes have it right.
2 months in the hoosegow...
is perhaps a bit extreme for a bout of drunken oafishness but considering that he apparently was publicly gratifying himself the punishment amounts to a well-deserved slap on the wrist.
This puts new light on...
the practice of rubbing Buddha's belly for good luck. Good luck or no, it should be an "uplifting" experience.
On Utility Vehicles
My question regarding "prouded" was sincere, regardless of tone. Here's another... What word or words are used in the UK to describe the light duty trucks "we yanks" refer to as pickups? I know you've got them, although perhaps not the massive beasts we use to transport our massive derrieres (and not much else).
Is "prouded" a proper form of Anglish that us fat, war-mongering yanks aren't generally familiar with, like the words colour, zed and the bonnet on the front of one's truck (excuse me, lorry)?
(Laughs evily) Mwahahahaha....
I work in the wireless industry and can confirm that this phenomenon is part of our master plan to immobilize all vehicles. After all, what's the first thing you do when your car won't start?
It Isn't So Much That
straight men are better at reading maps than gay men but, when doing so, are properly oriented.
Soviet Google may not be so bad
Google delivers approximately 2,390,000 results in response to the query "men's shirt". Who wants to sort through all of them? Soviet Google might deliver only one.
On the other hand, who wants to wait in a queue for the page to load.
All that contraband was smuggled in, eh?
Who would have thought that Paris Hilton knows someone in an Irish prison?
Look on the bright side...
At least you won't have to wait as long for the release of Service Pack 1.
Mr. Fellows, I believe the proper term is
