Sadly I've cone to the conclusion that the only thing that will fix the UK is a war. Just like when the Yanks had enough 200+ years ago. Sadly there are no more empty(ish) spaces to run to so it will be messy. That is what all this spying on the masses is about. Any dissidents will be routed out before their voices are heard.
This is something these companies fail to grasp. GT was available for free on torrent sites as soon as it was available. I suppose it makes them feel smug by staggering releases, all the while pushing people to not subscribe and just get it for free. Then they'll complain about piracy. They must know something I don't.
I expect that as we dig deeper and understand more, we will discover new things to blow our minds. It is the way science works. The more you (think) you know the more you don't know. Long may it continue.
It matters not what you do, when you start to get old your body changes for the worse. That is why companies want to sell you over 50 plans because they know at 50 health issues start to manifest.
I'm not saying drinking Coke is bad, it's just that anything including water in excess is bad for you.
You forgot to say 'rotate the shield harmonics and patch in the secondary EPS conduits'.
@ RyokuMas Ahh, the child's logic that A is ok because B is worse. Always used to justify bollocks.
'Magic' as in unexplained just like a magic trick, the viewer doesn't know how it happens, just that it does. Currently we don't know why superconductivity happens. It just does at given temperatures. Don't be fooled by words. Similar 'magic' happens with entangled particles. That is why it's called 'Spooky'. I'm sure it doesn't involve ghosts or spirits too.
I once owned a mouse that looked like a car. I solve cryptic crosswords. Is that a crime too? Somebody I know has slippers that look like mice. Please will somebody stop the madness.
Yoof nowadays have a 6 second attention span. The loop looks new every time.
The service withered on the vine... too soon?
Get yourself a pair of glasses as I did. No need to magnify the screen and play hunt the object.
That is why the spyware is in Windows, to comply with future requests from Belgium.
Once again everyone fails to remember. M$ has a proven track record of being the world leaders in 'Abandonware'. I'll give this 18 months before it is discontinued and the fools that bought it will be surprised, yet again. Please remember that this comes with keylogger pre-installed and everything you do on it will be reported back to M$. Open you wallets... idiots. It is SHINNY!!
@ Chemist Whooooosh!!
It is time to put the god particle to use and invent a gravity generator. The same ones used on the Enterprise. That would fix all back problems, may even lead to force fields. Time to patent my ideas...
I used to have a cat. Sadly the neighbours kept feeding it. It grew fat, got diseased and died. It stopped coming home as it had no need to. If people want to feed a cat they should get their own, not destroy somebody else's pet.
Perhaps they don't own the land that is the car park? It's like that round here but it is Sainsbury's you have to pay to park at. Asda is only guilty of not bagging raw chicken so that it contaminates the whole shop. Then you reject it and buy from another retailer.
No need to hide behind a mask, name Sony for the PS3 feature removal. Tesla look to be take lessons.
Galaxy Note 7 No1 on the the US most wanted list for acts of terrorism.
Re downvotes: Do people queue for Samsung stuff? I thought it was just an Apple thing.
If Sammy wants to get back lost customers, they need to make the next Note like the Notes of old. Include all the things that made the Note a Note. Bring back the removable battery and fatten the thing up so that the battery lasts. Start a new trend, long lasting (days) battery life. Then I might think about giving up my Note 3.
The Simpsons are not and never have been real but viewing a version of the 2012 Olympic logo could have you convicted as a sex offender. It is stupidity like that that cheapens convictions maybe to a point where being a sex offender will carry the same weight as being convicted for 'criminal' TV viewing.
I'm glad I'm not long for this existence.
Just repackage the phones as grenades and sell them to the US army. Sorted.
'Ahh the voice of the self-righteous.'
People who over-pay for stuff always defend the fact that they paid more. Wear your badge with pride, I am glad you are happy with your purchase. Many more will enjoy the same product at a cheaper price. I bet they are all self-righteous. FYI I have no interest in Oculus Rift or similar. I'm just pointing out how things are sold.
The early adopter tax is in full force. Price the thing high and watch fools rush in to be first to buy. Then drop to price to something sensible. Tried and tested strategy.
Please will someone explain what the use is for looking for certain words or phrases in an email?
If I were up to no good and decided to use email to communicate my wrong doings, I would use code words or numbers which have no meaning in themselves. Any one reading them would get news of a picnic or a day out to a museum with my Gran. I would never name my target or give out any real times. Any 'terrorist' would do the same so none of this is justified unless you are an idiot and think you'll find gold at the end of the rainbow.
How they are still in business? Idiots can't get it into their heads that M$ creates things, fails to market them then abandons it. Expecting the idiots to buy into the next M$ 'new-thing'. And guess what they do, expecting a different result.
Now they are one, Avast! will begin slurping your data like AVG does. Time to look at another offering if that happens.
The best washing machine is a direct drive LG. No belts to replace (common fault on most machines). Mine is going strong 8 years on. It just works silently. It even chimes when it has finished.
What performance? You mean the keylogger spyware and the stealth phoning home? Don't your family care about being spied upon? I'm glad you aren't part of my clan.
I left them at the end of August. They keep sending me emails and letters asking that I pay them money for my service (Sept). The last email informed me that they were restricting my service. That is a neat trick as I'm with another provider. Plusnet = shambles.
Same story here. next-episode.net a Tv listing site started changing the code to defeat adblockers. He was even proud that he was destroying the functionality of his site. He drove me into the arms of a different tv site where they just give out the information without the nags. I thank him.
Isn't this the same company punting guides to plebs on how to use Win 10 and the cloud? They endorse it on one hand then attack with the other.
Commodore Show in Hammersmith. I remember it well. I got the High Score on Super Pipeline two days in a row. The prize each day was a copy of Commodore Tennis. The bastards only sent me one copy. I too have no interest in this but it was fun whilst it was the machine to own.
Then the cheapskate wouldn't have a leg to stand on. The battery was sealed because the iPod had a sealed case. Also it makes the phone impossible to truly switch off (gov spying approved) and the phone needs to be binned in a few years when then battery fades. So built in obsolescence. I think Samsung were the ones using cheap batteries.
Imagine if Samsung had stayed true to the original Note ethos? S-pen, large screen and removable battery. This issue would not be a problem. But no, let's follow brain dead design and seal the battery in. I really hope it brings them to their knees and makes them re-think design of future products. "Pass the marshmallows..."
Place it 100+ years after Voyager, Put it on broadcast TV, Stop trying to shock by casting gay characters for effect. Or just cancel it now before it becomes the most pirated show in US history.
If it went to court they would have to prove it was you and your car. If you just deny it you will win. They would have to produce solid evidence (probably a clear photo of you, not your car.) I know this because I fought a red light ticket and won. I didn't have to prove it wasn't me I just denied it. They had no evidence just an accusation.
I thought the milk tray man was George Lazenby?
Every fleeting picture of any child on TV now have their faces blurred out. I wondered a few years back if this generation would know what children looked like in the past. How is this censorship protecting anyone? Children grow up and look different so the censorship makes no sense. But if any one speaks out against it they must be a paedophile.
Just moved away from Plusnet after being with them for over 3 years. Never had any real problems with them. Apart from the lies that their customer service seem to spout instead of being honest. I can take outages but I cannot tolerate lies. Glad I've moved on.
PS Still getting emails from them about my bounced payments even though I am no longer with them.
I wish I lived in a world where I could refuse $150 million. Actors get paid way too much.
Only for the fools who installed Win10. You knew the deal yet you still installed it. Enjoy.
Double Jeopardy is scrapped in the UK. Now you can be tried repeatedly if new evidence comes to light. I think it was when DNA evidence became a thing but I'm not sure. I do remember Blair announcing it.
This is priced to get mindless idiots to part with money, so that they can brag to their mates. 2 months later the price will be slashed so that more sensible early birds can feel smug about not being taken in. 3 months later the real price will be revealed. If it is any good it will live otherwise it will will gather dust in a cupboard just like other failed money grabbing gimmicks.
