There are *legal* gun sales online?
Fine them $1M a minute until their web site complies.
"You're pretty genius in our business if..."
You're pretty idiot if you failed primary school English.
I note that there's no mention of "quality" anywhere. Plus ça change.
No representation without taxation!
You know why they call him a guru?
Because it's easier to spell than charlatan.
I've flown Emirates a few times from Oz to Europe and back. The stopover in Dubai is a PITA, though the view on departure can be pretty amazing. But the planes are new, the interiors are pleasant (for people tubes), the seats are relatively comfy (for aeroplane seats), the entertainment system (it's Linux - I saw them boot it) is awesome and the food was restaurant quality (not Michelin star, but I've had much worse).
Oh - and the prices were less than those of Qantas.
I only found out recently that my wife's car uses Windwoes. No wonder it's such a flakey piece of crap! (The connectivity system, not the car - the car's brilliant.)
A dog turd
by any other name would smell as sweet.
Re: As big as three football fields??
One thing that bothers me about this new and now universal unit of measurement is which brand of football it's referring to. I assume that a gridiron field and an Australian Rules field are not the same size, and that neither is the same size as a rugby union field.
This Balkanisation of units is going to get us into trouble one day.
Re: If they were serious about punishment
That would be cruel and unusual punishment.
I'm in the bridge business
And I've been doing very nicely out of this, thank you.
Ever heard of...
Fletcher Jones and Staff?
Here we go again
They deserve all they get.
Thank JehovaJesus for it. It removes that and many other abominations.
Re: They provided FULL refunds
A better outcome would have been full refunds plus a fine of, say, 1,000 times that amount.
I suppose that makes the cat a pedophile.
Caskeid – pronounced "cascade"
Seriously - who are the fscking idiots who come up with these names?
Re: Fielded in 2018? Optimistic, yeah...
That's the most uninformative video I've ever seen. And I include nyan cat.
They would say that
The Trans Pacific Partnership will solve all these problems.
Your iThing is a crock? Stiff shit.
Re: Good on Australia
They used to call it treason.
This is treason, pure and simple.
And as much as I despise the current AU government, I despise their predecessors hardly any less.
"Google could care less which browser you use, as long as you conduct all your searches through them."
On the contrary - I'm sure that Google couldn't care less.
I don't blame him.
I used to cry every time I used WinPhone.
Re: Second most feared??
Funnelwebs, definitely. Huntsmans? Hardly. Not aggressive at all, though they can give you a painful nip if you tease them.
Re: Dear Bill...
"You need to invest in ENGINEERING rather than viral marketing."
But MS has only ever been a marketing organisation, selling third-rate rubbish purely by virtue of marketing genius.
Who's a pretty piggy, then?
Stupidity is, as always, its own punishment. Some people still haven't learnt to avoid MS like the very plague.
Re: re: next disaster will be:
"I also noticed, she looked quite embarrassed in the end when she realised she was being filmed. "
What's to be embarrassed about? She was just stroking her pussy.
Anything that broadens the scope from a purely Microsoft focus can only be a Good Thing!
I was under the impression that Android was a Java UI running on a Linux OS.
WTF??? This isn't open source?
Great to see that Microsoft's continuing the tradition.
Better get a bucket. I'm gonna be sick.
"In Australia it's legal to sell region-free DVD players"
IIRC it was, at one time, illegal to sell region-specific DVD players here - it was classed as a "restrictive trade practice". No doubt those days are long-gone.
Re: Kit Kat update
"Kit Kat update that Android users can only dream of.........
Unless of course THEY BUY A NEW PHONE."
Or have a Nexus 4.
Skype was dead as soon as Microsoft bought it.
The unspeakable in hot pursuit of the uneatable.
Obviously we're finally realising that Chinese back doors are no worse, and probably a lot better, than American back doors.
Good morning, sir.
My name is Murgatroid and I am being from Microsoft, good golly. We are detecting that your computer is having a naughty virus, my goodness me!
Shooting ammunition into tinder-dry bush during extreme fire condition is likely to start fires? Who'd o' thunk it?
And what's that in football fields?
