No, 21 appeared on screen around 32 seconds before the ball was drawn. More likely is it was a co-incidence and mistake as 27 and 21 may have looked similar to the graphics.

The HTC/Steam and Sony devices looks like it will make it first to the market.
Re: article misses out the most important information...
The feeble iPhone user got a good ass wupping from the obviously superior Android user
That photo is obviously a spoof
It's like the whole 'ban Peppa Pig' thing all over again
Oh yes I can really see this catching on
Re: Health and Safety
Motorsports would not be banned in the same way shooting and archery are regulated for sport
Health and Safety
Based on current trends (and recent practice) the logical outcome is that in the future the government will outlaw you driving a car yourself as you will be an unacceptable risk to health and safety.
Would you care to name what you consider to be a wholly British car company?
I presume the cloud providers are using the traditional backup software?
I left Android to go to iOS, it didn't last long though. Whereas 4 or so years ago iOS was king and Android was a cheap and rough imitation - I found now that in most aspects that are relevant to me Android was more advanced and functional. Android has developed a lot in the last few years and innovated more than Apple. I'm back on Android now.

Re: And the price will be?
It's not a phone though is it?
They should do the same over here for Omega 3 claims
Doesn't mention the size
Do you need two hands to operate the mouse?
If its anything like Touchwiz you can keep it
Just like real life then?
In general you don't get to become rich by being nice, you have to be unscrupulous.
Once you are rich then the legal system works in your favour and those fines become laughable.
So, just like real life.
Hipsters don't have ponytails
I thought this guy went bust?
He seems to be cropping up in the press even more than usual.
Excellent. Now I can record even more crap I will never get round to watching.
What is it Steve Jobs had said?
So does the iPhone 6+ come with 'sandpaper to file down fingers'?
God-damn interfering EU! Oh no hang on a second, this is good.
Hope its better than Symbian
For that price I'd want an M61A1 fitted
Glad it isn't just me
Read Brid-Aine's review agree with it 100%. Doctor Who isn't a science fiction series anymore nd hasn't been for a while, it's a fantasy series that isn't particularly fantastic. Yet mysteriously most viewers seem to lap it up even though none of it makes sense in the slightest. I realised after The Dark Knight Rises and Skyfall did well that things no longer have to make sense to suceed, but what a mess.
I would have added 'soap-dodging' somewhere in there
America on the other hand would never spy on it's citizens in this manner
Re: Sophie Dahl and Jodie Kidd - models, Julien Macdonald - clothing designer
You are missing the point. Some cool people said it is cool and therefore by buying an Apple product I become cool as well. Research, technical merit, suitability and individual choice be damned. So if you want to join club cool just do what the celebrities tell you.
Reminds me of something
To infinity and beyond!
Not as good as Guru Meditation
That's because Acer have had a lot of practice repairing their 'goods' (obviously because they are such a big and successful company)
Re: What's the point of the 4G?
4G no longer has a higher premium than 3G on most networks
It's also a phone!
I bought one and found that it is actually a telephone as well (as helpfully mentioned in this article) - unfortunately the data plan I bought is data-only as those were the only options presented to me by Carphone Warehouse. If you want to make and receive phone calls on this bear this in mind. You can still use SMS though (at least on EE you can). I don't think I'd "feel like a spanner" as it would be quite funny in a 'mines bigger than yours' kind of way. Reminds me of the Trigger Happy TV sketch with the oversized Motorola brick.
At one point there were handsets on sale on ebay with the game for silly prices after the game was withdrawn. Whether any were sold or not I do not know.
Still no Head Up Display then
This makes me sad
Let Facebook pay for it
The way I look at it, why should crowd-sourcing pay the R&D costs for Oculus Rift content?
It probably is a parody of her
But the character is sufficiently different that she will have a hard time proving it, especially as the physical appearance is so different
Apparently they won't ship to a PO Box, so how am I supposed to buy one without 'them' knowing?
Don't feed the troll
I thought I was on The Daily Mash
Somehow the fact that they are proposing polluting the moon makes me less inclined to buy their product. Besides, the moon belongs to America.
Re: Wow. Just wow.
Brilliantly technical people also frequently lack social skills, its just the way of the world.
Technically you are correct in everything you have said in your posts and I don't doubt your awesomeness in the field. However, for those of us not as awesome as you we think this non-usable phone project is quite cute. Easily impressed due to our own ignorance? Perhaps.
No full HD or OLED. For the company that pioneered the 7" tablet (albeit with some 'inspiration from Apple) this is underwhelming, and it comes 6 months after the Nexus 2013 iteration.
Re: Gaming community a niche market?
Gaming is bigger than Hollywood
Re: Sold their souls?
I'm possible in the minority in this respect, but I'd rather retain control of my business and settle merely to become a multi-millionaire rather than a billionaire. My integrity would be intact, I'd have the respect of the gaming community. As a bonus I'd also have the satisfaction of knowing that my product had changed the world and that I would leave a lasting legacy when I die. And, if my crowdsourced product had gone on to be spectacularly successful, I would have given something back to the spirited donors who gave me a leg up. Maybe I'm just naive, I honestly don't know.
Re: Thanks Notch
You'll be wanting to look at Sony's offering then
Re: +1 for projectors
You are something of a pioneer by not having a TV at all. I did wonder why I bother having one and realise that it is really for the benefit of guests.
No single reason
TV sales are falling because most people already have a big HD TV at home already, sometimes more than one. Why upgrade? 3D has died a death. 4k looks good - up close that is! Sit at any normal distance and the difference between 4k and 1080p is barely distinguishable for the vast majority of scenes. This won't stop most people buying it of course but currently prices are high and there does not exist the content or the means to deliver it. OLED has potential but is still way too expensive to manufacture even after 20+ years of development, and TV manufacturers have decided that 4k is more marketable. Mostly however I'd say that computing and the Internet has changed the developed world. Our family for example mostly consume media using computers/tablets - the TV is used very little. And when I say 'media' I don't mean just TV content. Even my 6 year old streams pre-recorded content from a DLNA server to her iPad. If we occasionally want to watch a family-friendly movie we fire up the home cinema projector - these can be purchased for around the same cost or less than a TV these days. And because people can watch what they want, when they want there is no need to congregate around the idiot box at pre-determined times (unless you are a member of the football religion).
So buy Corning, what's the problem?
