How big is the shipping container?
After all cardboard is quite fragile so it will need a big reinforced box to prevent it getting squashed by the postman. I know, you could use the metal box you're not using for the PC.
Where's the I.T. angle?
Even P.H. is asking.
Good job Microsoft
Please make it so that our leaders are stuck, unable to make things worse for as long as possible.
@ John Imrie
Agreed, every record should be protected and only once all the children of MPs (and Lord Adonis) have been unprotected, then maybe some others could be unprotected after seeking their parents consent
As a former credit tart
I'd like to thank all the credit card issuers for a decade of interest free balance transfers that I put in my savings account. Actually, thanks to their long term customers who actually paid for it all. I look forward to it all starting again as soon as the lemming like rush for growth starts again.
Only one kind of business will do this to its customers
And that would be a bank.
How can the electronics work then? There must be some semiconductor material in there or it would just fuse the USB port you plug it into. Oh, you mean not gold plated. I think you should just call it a "gold USB stick" in that case. The lack of "-plated" means it's not plated. I'm totally 200% annoyed by your lack precision.
Shame about the doors
It looks nice but what happens when you get back to the car park and find you can't get the doors open because they need about a yard of clearance. Not very cool climbing in through the sunroof.
How many customers do they have
£100m per year for the ticketing system seems steep for Greater London (pop 7.5m in 2006). How much would an old fashioned system cost (you know, with humans on trains and at barriers)
Start with kernel.org
Their banner is 7 months out of date.
In Brizle in the drizzle
Just past me on The Triangle at 12:10 today (11th July) but the camera was covered up prolly due to the weather. It should be used in the drizzle since that would give the rest of the planet a fair representation of what Bristol is actually like.
Shame it was covered, there goes my 1.5s of fame. I was even carrying a laptop and a bar of chocolate.
Look on the bright side
After a few cold miserable gloomy days in winter you'll be protected from motorway pile-ups in the fog since your car battery will be flat.
Mine's the nuclear powered one thanks.
Computers don't think.
As mysterious and baffling as they seem, they're not really thinking. Yes we are. Hey, who typed that?
Not until flash gets a lot faster.
10GB for an HD movie plus all the other stuff that the content provider will want to force you to watch. How long will you b prepared to wait at the shop? Probably not much longer than than it takes to process your credit card.
Maybe if BlockBuster rented you pre-filled flash cards it might work but then you've gone back to the inventory problem.
Green light to piracy?
What with ISPs offering unlimited downloads and now a copyright license with every storage device. Hmm, £500GB for £75 in PC World = £0.75 per dvd image, £0.07 per CD image - bargain! How much is this license going to be?
Interstellar travel, Only for Billy nomates
OK, so you might get to other places using antimatter before you die. But when you get back your spouse, kids and mates will be long dead. Not my idea of a happy life.
Farmers ARSE is not for aliens.
It's directly opposite a house and aligned with it, methinks it's intended to be viewed by the occupant as they open the bedroom curtains in the morning.
Reminds me of the story of a landscape gardener that took revenge on a nightmare client by planting daffodils in the lawn as specified, the trick was that they didn't come up until the next spring and then they spelt out exactly what the gardener though of the client.
Is it panto season already?
Principal eh? not for long
".. co-educational high school that challenges students to develop spiritually, academically, socially, and morally in the Catholic tradition."
With a head like that, I bet it is a challenge.
Saw a brave soul on the M4 this morning.
Driving a GMC Novolo (ugly, pointless 2+2 flatbed). The plate on the back was a square one and he had a tow bar beneath it. On top of the tow bar was an arrangement of metal things that neatly obscured all the writing on the number plate. Very clever mate, but even if the cameras were all rear facing, just how many GMC Novolos are there in the UK?
Dying isn't a way out
Expect to see them take over the cemetaries too, then they'll be digging you up to get the latest bio-id data from your corpse.
@ Mike Richards
It might improve the beach at Weston-super-Mud. No tides mean nothing being washed up by high tide, no reason for joyriders to dump cars on the beach for a laugh, and no danger of idiots/toddlers getting into difficulty in the mud when the tide comes in faster than you can walk.
