Re: Biting on the Apple
I was a skeptic until I was given an iPod Touch 2 and was so impressed with it I replaced my Blackberry Pearl (which was shit) with a 3GS and now a 4S which I bought outright (second hand).
They have all worked just fine, and all do the Handoff stuff already in place quite well (texts) and the iCloud is great for Calendars and stuff (it's not touching my pictures or music), even back to the Touch 2 and also my iPad 2.
Where problems started to kick in was when I got an iMac that eventually went kaput (power management chip although Apple can't find a problem) and it's so far taken me about 3 weeks to rectify my Time Machine archive onto a MacBook Pro to some sort of state it was in before.
So 'it just works' I think is fine for mobile devices but for 'heavy use' you still need a desktop of some sort as your main 'archive station' and actually doing stuff, and it does not all seem quite joined up yet.
PS Be very wary of changing your Apple ID when you have cloud features switched on, as it will clear all your devices of your content until you reset your ID on them as well - lesson learned!
Er, I mean: Hot!

Yes, don't they know they're supposed to use the proper icon so we know they don't require a reply?!

Right now where's my old Betamax copies of Blake's 7 that I used to watch illegally (but now watch legally)?
Scores of iPhones
More than 3750 scores then?
250km to the surface of the planet
The application of celestial mechanics is stupefying, they put Rosetta to within 4% of Mars' diameter for a sling shot! That in itself is impressive!
It was the one where you had to wear stripy socks 'because there was a doris', but they never said what a doris was or ever saw one (maybe because of the socks!).
Re: Pleanty of bears, plenty of houses
Goldilocks zone is defined as such, around a star*. There is no reason to suspect it can be extended to Goldilocks Conditions, either beneath the surface of a gas giant satellite, or indeed within the atmosphere of the giant itself.
*normally considered to be free liquid water on the otherwise 'exposed to space' surface (notwithstanding an atmosphere)

Re: Fit inside double glazing windows
A triple-glaze first version could be called Windows 3.1.
UK Biobank recruited half a million volunteers albeit a snapshot, University of Manchester and NHS could also do well to work with Google on analysing their data (although no tissue samples were taken IIRC, only fluids).
Re: I'd also add...
Mars could also do with an appreciable atmosphere to help with the wild temperature swings!
Nah, that was the Spanish equine reintroduction programme, they had environmental concerns alongside their other humanitarian objectives (well that's what it said in their funding proposal).
Moons are made of cheese so there must be a Titanic dairy herd hidden somewhere.
A boffin is someone who wears a knitted tie!
...and quite pale too!
Re: I see no problem
Correct, buffets in the UK are 'all you want to eat', US-style is 'all you *can* eat'!
Bespin has a 12-hour day. Just sayin'.
If the problem was telemetry, which didn't they just have an onboard recording as well? If they recovered Liberty Bell 7 then I'm sure they could find this to recover the footage.
Unless it's cheaper just to repeat the exercise (which I doubt).
Re: I used to live with a quid a day
When really skint in the 90's I had to plan my whole month's meals ahead of time and managed to do the whole lot, breakfasts, lunches and dinners plus a few treats, all for £40. I bought in bulk just after I got paid and went to the right supermarket at the right time when I knew the offers were on. So that was £1.30 per day on normal calories (although £1.68 in today's money).
Re: yeah, well
"Space Chunks", are they the same as the Pineapple variety?
You're thinking of Solar Cubes...
The noses retain too much youth IMO.

Re: Nah your all wrong....
Well then that made an agoraphobic Sygourney Weaver an early adopter in Copycat, sealing herself inside an expensive hi-tech apartment, conducting her entire life from behind a computer screen.
How did you do that?
That computer's wired into INTERNET.
The rotating side brush means it *does* get into the corners.
I have an old 500-series and have been using it for years. Really it's a dust buster that I can switch on before going out, covers my whole flat and is parked again, fully charged, when I come home. Usually the dust-bin (not the main bin) is full of dust that I can then throw away so it really works well for that in a pet-free home. It also gathers up long head hair into balls that it leaves around the place that are easy to pick up and throw away.
However you still need to have a proper hoover around the place from time to time.
I get on with it anyway.
This discovery is fundamental, thank you science!
If legislation was such that an approved tester had to attend a decommission then there could be a legitimate record.
