If they didn't, then they would just be 'Things' which doesn't sound anywhere near as important. ;)
I Am Not An ICANN?
My dilemma was that I could only pick one icon for my post, the nuclear explosion seemed more apt for the comment. In retrospect I probably should have gone with the safe option of 'Joke Alert' as most people here seem to need to be told when something is meant as a joke.
Not quite as insane as letting the Chinese test their design in Britain, see icon.
Will it fuck.
... they'll start trialing them once they've finished following them around.
"An Estonian robotics company is trailing six-wheeled delivery robots ..."
you know been reading el reg comments for too long when you start giving companies abusive nicknames
Or OhCan'tReach as they're known around these 'ere parts.
No, the smart* move is to keep using until it blows up in your face/hand/pocket and you can sue Samsung+dog for MEEEEELLLLIIIIIONS!
*For varying levels of smart.
It also makes it more likely that young people who have never smoked and start vaping will someday become smokers.
You just have to go under the big turtle!
Good luck with that, everyone knows it's turtles all the way down.
What, you need more?
... stop it!
I actually feel sorry for the poor sods that will have to spend their days reading through the inane drivel that is social media.
* No, and don't ask me ever again.
Come on, El Reg, you're as bad as Microsoft. ;)
If a password or PIN gets compromised, I can change that...
Which is why biometrics should only be used for usernames and not passwords.
Well, that's ok then. Why weren't we told about this sooner? I shall sell my soul to Microsoft immediately.
Well, at least you won't contribute significantly to global warming.
Are you kidding me? The last Allegro I owned left a cloud of smog behind it that would put a VW to shame. That said, that was just before two conrods and associated parts exited through the side of the crankcase.
There was a reason they earned the nickname "All Aggro" ...
This is exactly why my next 'new' car will be an Austin Allegro or Escort Mk III from fleaBay.
Just for once, leaving updates enabled would be a bonus - a turkey is much better than a chicken, right?
It's about bloody time.
Presumably these cameras can be switched off just prior to the suspect 'falling down the stairs'?
I love the inevitability of this - they create something that learns from the internet and get surprised when it learns from the internet...
That's pretty much exactly what I came in here to post, I'd say the project was a complete success.
Sorry, did you mean this time it's complete and utter crap?
could not organize a pissup in a brewery.
No, but when they do, you can guarantee that the BBC will be on hand to report on it.
Sounds more like the title of a seventies porn flick.
Even if Argos offered a "buy now, pay never" option I still wouldn't buy anything from them. Call me old fashioned, but I much prefer to see what the hell it is I am actually buying in the flesh before I hand over my hard-earned.
Why is it that every time an "On Call" article is published, people feel the need to quote some ancient story as if it actually happened to them?
Go post it on Facebook instead - the idiots there will almost certainly believe it was really you and not the guy that posted it on Usenet years ago.
Honestly I don't see how the UN got into this circus....
Presumably because they're a bunch of clowns.
"He comes across so intelligent on that QI programme, each week repeating mountains of facts, figures and details about things in the world that are whispered in his earpiece by experts."
That's what they get for insisting you install Flash. Karma's a bitch.
Fire up any computer running Windows 7 or 8 and you'll be used to a message or three inviting you to upgrade to Windows 10.
That's a pretty naive statement for a so-called tech rag to make.
Vodafone's Netherlands' chief, Rob Shuter, said: "KPN has repeatedly failed to deliver on its commitments and has instead seriously abused its dominant position..
As per the title, you couldn't make this shit up.
I'll bet his reward will come in the form of a 'special screening' by the TSA next time he flies anywhere.
The other major difference being that HD 189733b appears to have an atmosphere.
Who releases a work in progress? Oh, wait ...
Fuck me. Even Theresa May makes an effort.
Please. Do not use 'Fuck me' and 'Theresa May' in the same sentence.
It's not the same sentence, there's a full stop in there.
We'll see about that.
Manufacturers say their products are better than they really are ...
But all we got in response was, "It wuz teh immigrunts wot dun it."
If you don't know the difference between extensions and plugins then you probably shouldn't be using the internet.
Apparently, the Surface is the tablet that can replace your laptop and now they bring out a laptop?
Oh wait, that's arsehole dialling.
You're an alien overlord, use your own damn rocket!
What the fuck is that for a job title? Typical of the over-inflated BS we come to expect from the Beeb.
A BSOD in a browser window is tricking people? Anyone that is stupid enough to fall for that deserves all they get.
And here was me thinking that it was only Microsoft that recycled old, shite software ...
addition of customization options to set the default screen to a watch face
Wow! A watch face on a watch - that's innovation right there. Apple never cease to amaze me.
