Re: Paris, because I've heard tell that she is a bit of a sport.
Like a pink giraffe or an eight legged cat?
Re: Fire hazard?
Oddly, electronics PCBs used to be made from paper- bonded with resin- rather than fibreglass, in the good old days when valves were hot, and didn't catch fire as much as you might imagine.
They did catch fire, but mainly because they were hot, and if TVs, had doileys on top.
Re: Not cool, definitely tool
'Professionals' - credible? Give it a rest.
Professional is as professional does.
"Business" suits mean "I am going to rip you off, or order you about" Nothing else.
MS had a launch party, and nemo came...

Re: Metro Now
Down, Fido- you don't want RICHTO sniffing at yer bum...
Games W need to watch out- there were lots of miniature figures about before they were for one thing- nearly as many as stories with Space Marines in them.
I would also suggest Amazon get a grip.
Still the dumping ground of the world.
There must be a lot of whitespace spectrum though, due to a sparseness of TV ?
Could be an interesting testbed for *good tech like this.
*For relative values of 'good' as compared to W.... You Know What...
Re: You don't need to close apps... let the OS deal with it.
That's why so much Surface capacity is used by the OS- All of the installed apps are running all of the time!
Re: The iPad is a toy that some people choose to bring to work
The Surface is a toy that no people choose to bring to work
Are they building the stores
out of piles of Surfaces?
Re: Didn't someone already study flocking with sheep?
Is there an iDevice in the centre of the flock?
Re: Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
That's just what they would want you to think.
Re: Linux is cheap. That's why.
Therefore Windows is a waste of money?
There's nothing special about Apple stuff either- except the price.
Re: Prior art ?
As are the iTables in the Manchester Arndale iShop... non-compliant with Head Orifice?
Re: I'll take 10 of them.
So now there are 28 happy Win8 users? Who knew!
Re: how is it obsolete?
I like this definition, it seems apt:-
Obsolete: imperfectly developed or rudimentary in comparison with the corresponding character in other individuals.
Re: No, this phone is WP8
So still £150 for an obsolete system
Re: "...ultrabooks and Windows 8 laptops that are all stuck on the login screen..."
That's to make them look good- imagine if they *were* powered up...
Yeah, I put diesel in my petrol tank ... guess what?
You can't read?
Re: Oh How I Laughed...
Windows users have enough problems already.
Re: Lets try to put this in to some context...

Re: PC Sales in the toilet
Wrong, er, Pad...
Re: Where's Eadon?
Obvious MS flaw is obvious.
You don't need Eadon for that.
Jewel in Telewest's crown...
Re: My top tip for Microsoft.
"I've developed on Solaris and Windows but never Linux."
Hardly a catalogue of success, are you?
"wish you weren't hear..."
We wish you were deaf?
Re: American law does not acknowledge the existence of the phablet.
Re: What bollocks
"Oh look I just farted, make it two."
Only another 13 minutes of fame left, then.
100% extra charge ...
...and poor service for WinPho 8 users.
I agree with Thorne, although it might make sense to start smaller by mining the dead satellites and other space junk first, for practice, and to clear up the junk; they are easier to get to and their positions are well known.
Space Salvage- nearly Yarr! so
Re: The Bic lighter of surveillance. Nice!
Counter? More like a target.
Wake me up when these are the size of a grape and can accelerate at 10G- I'll be zipped up in the acceleration tank...

OOh! Are you one of the Popular Girls?
Re: I am not a chemist
Which is, in fact, the by-product. Where do you think the O2 goes?
Or Steam Powered Giraffe...
Re: @It's not radio, it's laser
Bah. 'Tis all Wireless.
Re: Krusty the Clown springs to mind
"With his flapping dickie..."
Enough of this Savile inuendo!
Re: You can't polish a turd.
How apt on a Surface/WinRt thread!
See people as puzzles to be dissected without mercy, and love nothing better that the feel of squeezing brain matter as it oozes between their cruel fingers.
