Not good value
For £100 pounds more you can get a Sony 32" Freeview HD TV that does all of the above, plus does Freeview, Freeview HD and includes a nice HD screen. OK, it doesn't have a keyboard.
Get back £1.50 for 60 hours
How does that fit in with the minimum wage?
If you want jaw-dropping impact
I humbly suggest goat.se
Happens to lots of people
Get over it.
Ejected for failing to know how to play naughts and crosses.
Rude and ungramatical
The placard should have read "Don't get caught in software patents, you thickets".
If you want to appeal to the oldies
better make the volume switch go Loud, Louder, Deafening
Note to support staff
If someone's laptop has overheated tell them to take it outside to cool down.
$75k puts you comfortably in the top end so it's not surprising that you're happy. Beyond that and you probably don't mix with enough poor people to stay grounded.
Can we have a "well, duh" icon?
Getting shot nie times does not give you street cred
Getting shot at without getting hit might, but even better is having enough intelligence to not be around idiots with guns.
Add your own mayo
I may not be Poirot
but I can guarantee that his missing son wasn't inside the PC.
Not thought this through have you?
The smelliest people don't own irons.
Re: Ten times more light
3D TV glasses do cut out some light so brighter lights will enable you to keep them on when you make a cup of tea. Plus any fule kno wearing sunglasses indoors is cool.
WTF is bestshore?
I can only guess it's what happens to your jobs when, not only are the people in India cheaper than you, they are better too.
Review Fail! - Can't go smaller
Of course they can, the limiting factor is the USB connector (there's room in there to put the chips). You will have to remember to tie a piece of string to it if you don't want to use pliers to extract it though (just like certain products for women)
Stand on one leg!
Waste of space. Your height does not change so all you need to remember is your weight to get your BMI. And your weight doesn't change much so remembering is easy. (Hint - it's probably the same as yesterday or maybe a bit more, never less). Once you move to remembering your weight you can type that in to any number of free computer/internet/iphone programs to track your increasing weight. Then you only need a cheap pair of analogue scales that don't require you to log in by hopping your user id in morse.
Alternatively jump up and down naked in front of a close friend and ask them if you wobble in the wrong places.
Antiques roadshow 2110
or flogging off as fake id.
"Given a more roving role"
Is that a euphemism for being shown the door?
I'm guessing that the email will go to a server somewhere and the printer will poll it for print jobs. I don't want my print jobs being stored on someone else's servers and I don't want my printer to be open to anyone that can guess an email address.
Sauce for the goose
I think the BBC should put in a complaint to Ofcom.
Tell us more
How do you use MythTV to watch Freeview HD?
$1bn / 9000 is..
~$111k - quite a generous redundancy package on average.
I live in the countryside and I'm grateful I never have to listen to jazz anymore, I don't know how you put up with it.
Best way to give to charity is time or cash to a local charity. Time is better.
Don't do this just because you hate Microsoft. They get more publicity from every pound raised. And every pound raised costs them 50p (tax deductible). Just donate £1 to your own beer fund - you will feel better.
Warnings on the screen?
How is that supposed to work then? It's only the kids that can work this technology in most families.
I know it's going to be expensive but the VOD companies are going to have to either restrict all ads to be suitable for children or stitch in adverts to the stream based on the time of day (at the receiving end).
You don't know what a boob tube is do you?
The post is required, and must contain letters.
Immobilisers might be a better application
Just have the immobiliser tag on you keyring and it will be near enough when you insert the ignition key to work. Better than fumbling in the dark for the place to insert the magic doobrey.
Speaking of which, if I'm in a restaurant I'll be concentrating on loosening the knickers of the other person and not wanting to edit my playlist or roast my dog.
Humans are much better
Bedroom shame indeed! (not the first time you've heard that phrase I guess)
You call that clean? For that amount of money you can get at least 40 hours of cleaning time from a human, probably enough for you flat for a year, which is probably longer than that robot will last. Or you could just do it yourself
Re: Propane is very similar to methane chemically
I suspect you were sleeping during chemistry, they're about as similar as oxygen and chlorine are, just a few numbers. And please don't try to distil your own whisky.
From a Cambridge don??? Surely that should be unbearable
David Bowie - ahead of his time
It just means you're more
Should have a word my my vet
He assures me that when the time comes to kill my horse he's got an injection that will do it in seconds. He says it's so effective that he's no longer carrying a gun around (in case of emergency call-outs, not bill collecting).
Head mounted LED lamps are great and last for ages. You could switch off the lamps and give everyone in the country one with the first months savings.
IR35 - pah that's nothing
Listening to Radio 4 this morning it sounded like they're after any tax avoidance of any shape or form. Without actually specifying which tax avoidance they mean though so pretty vague.
In the old days
Programs would expand until they could read email. Now they expand until they can form a botnet.
Flying where there is no night
Maybe they're planning on flying inside the Arctic circle in the summer. Would that count?
Not sure who's copyright has been mugged.
It's a photo of a git on a Quattro. Surely the politician won't object since all publicity is good publicity. Audi might be embarrassed but they probably don't own that car.
Nearly had me going
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
Every day is Linda Lovelace day.
Is Hallerton bottle kicking still going?
That was thought to be dangerous in the seventies.
Sounds like aiding and abetting
I'm pretty sure that's a crime in this country even if the other party is abroad.
Stop verbing nouns or I will death you
It's not births, it's delivers. Consider that a lesson I have gifted you.
They showed an engineer on vacation for a week in Mexico
No they didn't, they showed the location of the engineers phone.
Hoorah for cheap cars
No alarm, no immobiliser, no GPS, no satnav. I don't worry about it getting stolen. Cheap cars can be reliable, fast (as anything on the motorway) and comfortable. The only thing they lack is a big-ego-indicator.
And horses are better off with Julienne carrots
Seriously, they can and do choke. Not much chance of a Heimlich maneuver either.
Use it or lose it
I know I'm confusing initial outlay and running costs but $18000 for 50 year storage is $360 per year. That will buy you a few TB per year now and lord knows how much in 10 years. Plus newish HDDs will always work with your kit.
Your descendants are going to dig you up and make fertilizer out of your bones if you've left them with a holo disk they can't read. Even if they can get the data unless you've been backing up and restoring continually the knowledge of how to do it willl rot away in short order.
Note to self
Must show these prices to the other half the next time I get a whinge about openoffice not being like Word.
No problem if phones are cheap
I wouldn't report mine stolen, it (Motorola F5) cost £22 one ebay and came with £20 PAYG credit. It's ugly but small and works fine as a phone. I leave it on around and drop it all the time, I don't need GPS, camera, email, web, games, porn. If you nee gadgetry just buy a gadget, the sum total will be less than your iPhone and you won't get mugged.
