Now we know why they are pushing Prime so hard.
This is the new MS M.o. They say one thing, let it stew then come out with something different. In the real world we call it lying. When the Xbone was coming we were told that you had to sell your soul to make it work. etc. All this was back-tracked as people didn't go with it. This is just more of the same 'marketing'. You tell the world you are giving them an amnesty and Win 10 will be free. Let is stew, then tell the truth and expect people to still trust you.
I'll just wait for a cracked copy if I can be arsed to try out Win 10. I gave vista a miss and win 8 / metro. When the lies stop and the truth is know, i'll make a decision. but I will never use a rented OS.
Dimmer switches do not cut the power to the light bulb. It just lowers the power to a point that the light cannot shine. The light bulb is always 'on'. But having tinny tiny mono speakers in a bulb does not interest me at all. I've got two ears and quite like bass.
So now you are a (bad) mind reader with no sense of humour.
If you want to believe in a sky fairy that is up to you. I don't agree with brainwashing (religion) but everyone's life is their own and they should be free to believe in crap if they want to. I'm off to worship the chocolate teapot orbiting mercury whilst I'm still allowed to do so. Care to join me?
Whooosh!! Note the big brother icon on my original post.
I'm light heartedly pointing out how stupid this new law will be. It can be used to legalise or criminalise anything they want. If anyone disagrees with them and speaks out about it, then they are extremists and must be jailed. Only a Hitler supporter would agree to this 'law'. Only a war will get rid of it, like last time.
'Powers to close premises where extremists seek to influence others'
Does that mean all churches will be closed down? If so I'm all for it.
Surely the message here to all media providers is that the people who no longer buy infected stuff are protesting. If they were to pirate then buy, those idiots in charge would never get the message. Why insist that people watch adverts on a film they purchase? Why must they control everything even after you have paid your money. I never watch film trailers as they spoil the movie for me, so I will never buy a DVD or Blu ray. But by all means block all the sites, I'll still never buy the official product.
Even if things were dirt cheap they would still contain crap. For example a DVD where you cannot skip trailers and you are called the thief and threatened by the FBI for buying it. A rip is better, all you get is the movie you want and nothing else. So piracy will always exist as it provides a better end product.
If I ran a company that every household in the UK had to pay for whether they used a competing firm or not, I'd be 'good value for money' too. I'd also be a millionaire. I'd' be a billionaire once they started putting people in jail for non payment. Sounds fair to me.
Terra Nova by Steven Spielberg was binned after one series 13 episodes. Billed as the most expensive TV series ever. Fox at it's finest. The track record of Pox TV execs is there for all to see. They specialise in destroying sci-fi. God knows how they ever turn a profit.
This show is not about that. Pre-crime is dead. (soon coming to the UK) This is about one of the telepaths making his way after getting freed from the bath tub.
I just got a wooden ball carved with the note that Fox will murder the show, no matter how good it is.
Is there another kind of download that is not digital? Just say 'downloads'.
"they'll start asking if you have any security features that'll destroy data", "You have the right to remain silent." Yeah, right.
Jonathan Ross, is that you? What are these washes you speak of?
When I were a lad and went the fair there was booth where you paid someone to guess your age. If they got it right you got some money back. If not you lose your cash. This is the modern version and folk still fall for it.
'Brown' Hatters do something entirely different.
"---No you couldn't, he's by now spinning way too fast in his grave to make a reliable timepiece."
Just use him as a quartz crystal and calculate the time from that.
He was wearing it wrong. (Sorry it had to be said).
I have an edifice watch by Casio and it keeps great time via the radio atomic time signal. It also recharges itself via light, even by fluorescent tubes. Never needs adjusting. Just wear it and look at it for the correct to the second time. When full the battery will last for 8 months in total darkness by stopping all hand movement and time checks. It spring back to life when it sees the light. The future is now.
The name was Professor Pat Pending. But yeah I'd like to see a patent icon too.
They need to revamp the logo. This time they should set the pitch of the exclamation mark to 18 degrees. 17 just doesn't bring in the punters.
uBlock does element blocking too and has no pay-to-bypass lists.
They only want to connect people to spy on them. Why would anyone vote for that?
Can't wait for the Chinese to make their own processors and for them to become the dominant force in the market. Intel can then thank Uncle Sam for destroying their business.
Let's imagine that this book was the worst thing a man ever created and really needs to disappear. It gets evaporated and everyone is happy. Because the president set, it's time to ban another few books just to be safe. In a few months the list now includes 100s. This is a slippery slope that will get abused. Look what happened to the Pirate bay in the UK. The list now contains 100s of sites and has achieved nothing.
Welcome to the club. Everyone knows what type of company Sony is and yet they still buy things from them. Sony is, and will remain on my shit list for many years to come.
After the revolution of course.
I love BST. The only time I didn't was when I had to work nights on the time switch form GMT to BST. It cost me 1 hours pay. I made sure I never worked nights on the change over again.
I think they are the symbols of the US political parties. Just like Labour is a red rose and the Cons is a torch. Libs a bird. I maybe wrong as I don't follow things political.
They'll just supply a mini windmill which you hang out of the window when the battery gets low.
You are a Mod and I'm a Rocker. Let's fight......
Micro Live: I remember it well. A man that looked like an owl bleating on about computers. He would mention other machines but all the programs were for the BBC Micro and needed altering to run on anything else. They never featured code for any other machine. You needed a BBC Micro or later on an Acorn.
Wearing my Octarine arm band. Respect.
You guys are aware the the top end Casios are labelled Edifice and are expensive as other premium brands. If you are into tech you can get an atomic radio controlled solar powered one which will keep it's value and still work when you give it to your grand kids after you have expired.
Do you wear girls blouses? Just asking because the buttons are on the other side. No? Why not? We have two hands, do your brain a favour and learn to use them both . I hear it boosts brain power too.
Not on the S6 and S6 edge. Where have you been?
It just means that this phone sucks too. The only benefit is profit for Samsung as they sting customers for inflated storage costs. Looks Like I won't be buying an S6 any time in this lifetime.
Where are complaints about the guy walking down the street with a huge arse and high heels. It even shows Asian looking girls stopping to stare then following him down the street. Is there no equality left in the UK?
They have that shit memorized. Just leave the believers behind, their gods will save them.
See that "/s" at the end of my comment. It means sarcasm. Which means I'm joking but your intellect is too great to realize that. So thanks for the down vote. We need cameras on all keyboards to stop humourless people posting too..
So getting arrested for something makes you instantly guilty now? How do we know they have the right person? Can we not wait until his conviction in court to throw rotten fruit. I agree that the person(s) responsible should be punished but I want to know for sure. We all know the police never make mistakes... right? Perhaps more intrusive snooping laws are required. Then we will all instantly know whenever someone puts a toe wrong. /s
Read today's Dilbert comic strip....
I always thought that someday i'd go to jail. This could be the reason. I hope the UK Gov start a prison building program sharpish, as I see lots of new crims being in need of accommodation soon.

Great idea. Move the prisons to places without cell towers. You do realize that most prisons were built well before cell towers were invented. Perhaps if we ask all the inmates to pitch in they can move all prisons to the moon, brick by brick. I hear they get limited cell reception. How about simply using a signal jammer? or adding 10 years on to discourage use?
Every hacker and their dog will have a go at Sony. They are now known as the company that caves in to hackers. So why not see if you can get some free goods or money from them? They brought this on themselves.
Who knew the title of that show was real? The USA folded, the terrorists win. So much for the land of the free and the home of the brave.
A simple guide of a good company is the ease of contact. If you have to jump through hoops to locate a regular phone number (not premium) then shop elsewhere.
I just checked out Isohunt out of curiosity and was greeted by a message saying the site was permanently shut down by a United States federal court. I then googled Isohunt and was taken to the working site. Why should I believe the powers that be, when they lie about shutting things down? The domain was seized, the site is up and running for all to use.
Sequels usually fail because they always try to incorporate parts of the original story. They insist on actors making cameo appearances which adds nothing to the story. I life things happen and you don't get people from your past just dropping by to say hello.
