Yeah, but he was just showing off to get laid.
> Im puzzled by this logic. Every time a man has sex with a woman, a woman has sex with a man. So women shag around just as much. QED.
You're confusing the total number of acts with the total number of participants. Elementary logical failure.
But women will educate us in what works and once the lesson sinks in that asking 50 random strangers “Hi, wanna jiggy?” doesn't actually work, then our approaches will be tamed down to those that do work.
Except that it almost certainly will work, provided the asker is prepared to continue asking different individuals and not be disheartened by the massed rejections.
> Known, yes. Easy, no. For a start, it means a complete hardware refresh because the hardware capable of running XP will barely run 8.1, if at all.
Remember we're talking about embedded custom images here.
Not always. linux took a long time to get up to the level of stability it enjoys now and buying support in the past was.... not trivial. Or safe, particularly.
And the reason DOS became huge in the first place is that it was cheap.
XP Embedded (which most ATMs run) is still supported. Certainly beyond next year.
Also to quote the article - "in come imporved security"(sic). Yeah. Secure Android. Right. Are they going to secure Windows ME while they're about it? I'll believe "imporved" though.
Lot of downvotes here - are you saying that single transferable vote would NOT have led to the LibDems being a minority partner in every future government forever, or are you saying that you actually want that?
No snark here, it's a genuine question.
> if they had convinced the British public to vote in favour of the single transferable vote referendum it would have been worth it for them because it meant that every single future government would contain the Lib Dems. Forever.
Fixed that for you. Luckily, the British people don't want the LibDems in government forever. Or the SNP. Or UKIP.
The fun bit is waiting for some fandroids to come along and tell us that even though the FTC internally found Google guilty on all counts, they are still clearly innocent because nobody makes McDonalds sell Burger King burgers or some other nonsensical drivel.
Maybe I'll look into it then.
I'm not about to faff around composing posts in Fiddler, so never mind.
How did you use the old icon?
I've particularly been missing the "Death of the Reg" icon.
McDonald's business is selling burgers. Google's business is
selling you to advertizerssupplying search results.
The EU are not saying the Google should be supplying DuckDuckGo results along with their own.
> And what would Apple have a de facto monopoly on (aside from expensive phones and now watches)?
They had a de facto monopoly in the form of iTunes, which they then illegally leveraged into a mobile phone business and a tablet business. But that horse bolted long ago - too late now.
No, he means the Windsors. George V changed the name by decree.
> Why would I want a 120 landfill windows phone that has no apps and costs £60 a year after year one (in addition to mobile contracts of course)
What? It costs £120. Unlocked. You own it from that point and put whatever SIM you want in there (or none).
Where does the £60/year come from? You don't have to renew Office 365.
Google fanboy references "microsofts mighty ad machine".
Film at 11.
perhaps massive cowards (see above) should be able to opt-in to mass surveillance from GCHQ while those of us who can do maths and realize that we are more likely to be hit by a meteorite twice in an hour than get killed by a terrorist crack on with our lives.
You could beat them to it by donating.
> The vast majority of Java runs on servers, where “write once, run anywhere” is in fact slightly less of a joke.
I think there's a difference between Gamergate and calling someone a female Stephen Fry - ie, an ignorant enthusiast.
No thanks, those gorillas are too strong. Try one of these baboons, They're milder.
> Did I miss the Fourth Reich?
I don't know. Probably not if you're Greek.
it's a topological extension of the information superhighway.
I wouldn't. It's buggy and known to be so. If you don't use the handset as your primary then okay but this isn't "daily driver" material yet by a long way.
> Do you really think it's a moral decision on Microsoft's part?
Nope. I think they're pushing privacy as a brand-differentiation, a USP to make customers go with them over, for example, Google. The big G is not so much about privacy, except their own.
So overclocking isn't a thing after all, then?
My favourite was the "waterproof" poster.
I was thinking more along the lines of -
"We live in a world of marvels and no mistaking it. Oh, some lugubrious fuddy-duddies will always cast swine before pearls, value chaff over wheat and verily render from Caesar what should remain unrendered and that's up to them, my loves, for we few, we happy few, we band of wristband wranglers have been granted joy. Sumptuous joy. Delicious joy. Scrumptulicious joylode as the late Stanley Unwin might have sagaciously opined.
To touch, to stroke, to force-fondle a sparkling glow of machined elysium on the hairy Tartarus of one's clumsy wrist, a joint of little desire, a mere link 'twixt arm and hand without charm or sexuality rendered glorious at one stroke, for stroke it you will.
It is beautiful, this thing. It links to ones iPhone, itself a thing of utter erotic gorgeousness, and it has a battery in it, which is splendid. And even as you caress the Watch (a mere "w" is insufficient, the mighty "W" barely suffices as Sir Jony Ive so rightly decided) so it caresses you back. One caress, two buzzes three throbs.
My wrist throbs for me, and, dear reader, we shall all in turn throb for our wrists".
I think we've been downvoted by Stephen Fry.
My watch is also a Fossil.
Preferred name for this thing is definitely a "jazzbangle" although I don't know why either - it's just a really good word.
Lewis, could you invite Stephen Fry to review it for the Reg?
Because, y'know, funny.
Don't you need a TV license for that?
Speaking of which, the review is sadly silent in which of these (if any) will pivot.
I too used to go for vertical space but eventually spent some tax-deductible capital expense on an Asus PG278Q ROG Swift 27" which at 1440p and 27" doesn't need to pivot.
It does pivot, of course, and at that price you'd bloody hope so too. It just doesn't need to.
Oh, you do NOT get to blame Simon Weston for the failure of his superior officers.
Tell me you didn't go there.
I make no judgements on the type of audience or even Farage himself - I'm just pointing out that he is likely to alienate more prospective applicants than he will attract.
You could probably increase applications by removing the Farage paragraph.
Nobody likes unwanted ads (if that's what this really is).
However, sneaking Win10 onto home users' machines for free would probably be a benefit to everybody.
I'd pay that, too but only if they also implemented SSL.
Because 2015 people, ffs.
> And yet some of us still manage to keep our operations running and malware free as far as we know
Fixed that for you.
Then I expect the poster is from the future since nobody knows what changes these patch releases will make and nobody will know until a little while before they are released.
If he is indeed from the future then I apologize for my sarcasm. If not, he should maybe stop complaining about things that haven't even happened yet.
there isn't going to be a subscription model.
Honestly, this is becoming boring. No subscription model. It's patches, service packs and Windows Update.
I am quite amused by the way the prospect is always yelled most loudly by those who take a pride in having nothing to do with Windows anyway presumably in the hope of frightening some gullible idiots into following their lead. This has the obvious benefit that they could then have a bigger market share and thus not have to hope nobody mentions it when they tell you that Blackberry and Windows Phone are useless and crap and evil because they have no market share.
It might take the edge off all that shilling for Chromebooks.
You don't need any revisions at all. Don't upgrade! Upgrades are evil and they mean change and change is always bad. There are no such things as beneficial patches or zero-day flaws or security updates or stability updates. None of those actually exist.
Disable Windows Update. Switch off Windows Defender. Uninstall your AV. Switch off your firewall.
Never update. Never patch. Never upgrade. Because you don't need to because you are just so much BETTER than that!
But if it sounds good, that's okay, right?
I'll do that, too.
Short version (as most of us know) is that EE + Village == "No signal".
