RE: Shatner version of 'Common People' is superb
It's not bad, but still messes up the timing on the line "..but she didn't..........understand" just like every other cover of that song. The forrins just always seem to miss the humour in that line, shame.
That said, Sir Shat woz aces on HIGNFY!
Rocketry isn't science
Saw it on the iPlayer a few weeks ago. It's gratest achievement was to give me an overriding desire to see the BBC version and i didn't rest until I had done so.
The film rushes through the whole story. The TV show lets it breathe and is hilarious as a result.
You'll need beer....
Re: Apples, Oranges, Pears & Lemons
"I suppose you buy your cables at BestBuy or something, right ? "
um....no they are generally supplied with the device. Especially when the device touts such a premium price tag.
Active cable? Sounds like a marketing decision more than a practical or useful one.
Do you enjoy being gouged? I guess so. As a Mac user you must be used to it. If this was a windows accessory it would be laughed out of the forum. 75%? GTFO
You're either a troll...
...or you have no soul.
Either way it rhymes.
To loosely quote the man himself:

"I stopped worrying about that about $80million ago"
Watch Delirious - there's a man trying to make a living. Funniest show 14yo me had ever seen
Watch Raw - there's a man who has made it - Meh

Are we there yet? (Cheers, Doug!)
"A loud clatter of gunk music flooded through the Heart of Gold cabin as Zaphod searched the sub-etha radio wave bands for news of himself. The machine was rather difficult to operate. For years radios had been operated by means of pressing buttons and turning dials; then as the technology became more sophisticated the controls were made touch-sensitive--you merely had to brush the panels with your fingers; now all you had to do was wave your hand in the general direction of the components and hope. It saved a lot of muscular expenditure, of course, but meant that you had to sit infuriatingly still if you wanted to keep listening to the same program.
Zaphod waved a hand and the channel switched again."
sucks less balls than itunes
I've paid the $20 or whatever years and years ago and, apart from a few video codecs that it only pretends it knows what to do with, it has stood the test of time for me at least. Excellent media library, converts files, rips to FLAC & mp3, ipod support, etc. not to mention the most consistantly trippy plug-ins.
Cold boot windows, right click a folder in explorer, play in Winamp: >7k tunes load and play in seconds. Try that with itunes or WMP. It can even make a half-decent go at randomising a playlist instead of just the lame 'shuffle' play option. (all are lame IMO if you have 'too many' tunes)
PS: Anyone that installs anything by fast-clicking next next next deserves everything they get.
"...a huge post-production house with a 65,000-square-foot HQ in Mumbai, India. "They have thousands of people there, mapping out objects and projecting them onto models converting 2D to 3D."
<sarcasm> And I'm sure they have licensed copies of every piece of software in use.
Plenty of CAD warehouses in Asia have 'hundreds' of CADmonkeys on tap. "need more? no problem!" At only £3000-£5000 a seat. Where did all my work go?
Ah - the paper free office,,,,
When an ipad can display an A0 (16 x A4) page at 1:1, and survive 6 months at the sharp end of a building site, I'll buy one. Probably 2, as the first one would get nicked as soon as your back was turned. Until then, paper and blu-tac get the job done.
Paper isn't broken, and has yet to completely replace vellum.

"...do me the courtesy of providing it to me in a form in which I can make use of it."
Also, one file showing the entire country with enough detail to be useful is likely to be unreasonably large and not play nice on something like an iPad.
What BBC were you watching?
I was up till the wee small hours last night listening to a constant stream of harrowing live reports from Clapham, Ealing, Croydon, etc. on the BBC.
I'm out of the country, reliant on a crappy 3G dongle for my access. Sky is not an option b/c of all the bandwidth-hogging ads.
BTW, where the fuck were you? It's not as if there's no IT angle on this (Blackberry, google maps etc.) but all you seem able to do is suck up to News Corp's agenda......from a VERY safe distance, I might add.
And I agree with the critisism of Mark Stone - getting beaten up for the sake of a news story is not original (Cook Report) , but it is doubtless lucrative.
This item has proved one thing beyond a shadow of a doubt:
The majority of non-IE users are fucking snobs
OOh! Me too! Me too a grammer nazi too!
Shirley, "they both have agenda to push." as "agenda" is already plural? (Thank you, yes minister)
At least it wasn't 'paninis'
@ Gordon 10
At first I thought you were being a little harsh, but then 2 clicks from the article answered the first question, so fair comment.
The last question was plain bizarre. WTF is a 'shiny circle'? (I even did some legwork and came up empty)
Buying Sunday's NOTW
It was announced that all the money for that day was going to charity.
I was going to buy one, but then i thought "meh"
Flames, 'cos that's what I'd have done with it, and then refused to piss on it. Would have made a great photo.
I did some Amazon shopping last night
I had to click more than once to checkout.
